Sicilian Lentil Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2002
I left out the sugar and the last bit of water intentionally, and the garlic less intentionally and it was great. My toddler LOVED this so hence the 5 star stamp of approval. She is going through a fussy stage and usually doesn't really want to touch much of her dinner at night. She actually gobbled it all up! I suspect that this recipe could be quite easily converted to a crockpot recipe. If you cook it in a wok with gas it only takes about 30 minutes too.

Best Ever New Zealand Pavlova

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2002
Some tips for those cooks who did not grow up downunder... Malt vinegar is the traditional vinegar used. This is the one recipe I do not hand mix. Out with the electric beater as it needs a good 10-15 minutes. If there is any yolk in the mix you will end up with pavlova pancake. Break all eggs separately and carefully. No stomping around the kitchen and no opening the oven door to check what is inside...otherwise pavlova pancake! If you don't have suitable fresh fruit, grated chocolate is also a good decoration.

All Day Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2002
Don't bother boiling up the pasta. I used left over cheddar and made up the rest of the cheese with mozzarella. Just use the odds and ends that you might have. I added some paprika but that didn't have much influence on the taste whatsoever. I used 1 egg and extra egg white left over from another recipe. And I greased the cooker with olive oil. So how was it? Pretty good and it still is good cold. My toddler decided she wasn't into the pasta in a big way last night and seems to prefer it cold when the cheese is solid. A good solid comfort food type dish.

Pasta Carbonara I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2002
Okay, so I used fake bacon because I am vegetarian; spirals instead of fettucine; light sourcream in place of real cream; 3 eggs which was enough; used mozzarella instead of parmesan; left out the parsley...and it still turned out okay. Actually more than okay as my 19 month toddler LOVED it. I liked it too. It gets to stay in my recipe collection :-)

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2002
Well, I didn't have breadcrumbs so I substituted ground almonds and couscous. I also accidentally forgot the cheese. I had too much bok choy so I chopped a bunch up extremely finely and used that instead of parsley. And why this recipe scored an extra star? My toddler LOVES this! Tasted pretty good too.

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2002
A good weekday recipe that is reasonably quick. I used garlic chives instead of basil with good effect. My toddler [15 months] really liked this recipe as it is gluggy enough to stick to her spoon. Hence the dog didn't like it as much as there was much less ending up on the floor.
