Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
There was was too much butter in this. I would have put in at least half the called for amount. The bottom of my baking pan was half an inch deep with melted butter! I would have preferred the topping to be more dry and crunchy. Just an opinion, but for anyone else that feels the same... I also added a little vanilla to the fruit mixture, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice. I also added some blueberries. Other than the butter problem, it came out deliciously and I would definitely make it again, just without that much butter. Thanks for the recipe!

Carrot Cake Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
I was really excited to make these. Not sure what went wrong but they came out VERY cakey and more like pancakes than like cookies. Well, I think I remedied the situation by popping them in cupcake papers into a muffin tin and baked them as muffins for a little longer than the cookies. I certainly liked them as muffins!

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
This soup was amazing! I used quinoa instead of couscous, which gave it a very distinct taste. I also added some thyme, tarragon, and a little savory. I barely used cumin, just a sprinkle. The soup had a more savory taste than an ethnic taste. This soup was really very good! So light, simple, healthy, but filling. Definitely will be making this a lot more.

Almond Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
So delicious! I used two tsp of almond extract, brown sugar, a tiny bit of baking powder, and spiced it with a little cinnamon. Very yummy.

Szechuan Spicy Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Not too impressed. The flavours were too much, and I usually like a lot of flavour. Too salty/sweet/spicy/oniony, just too many things going on.
