Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Very good tasting and looks great. Sundried in place of the fresh tomato is a great change. I would also recommend cutting up the spinach before cooking. I used baby spinach, and it sort of "clumped", meaning many fork-fulls were without and some had too much spinach. A small note to improve a great recipe. Thanks.

Breaded, Fried, Softly Spiced Tofu

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Great! I made it with just a mild curry powder for the spices. My 1 and 3 year old GOBBLED them up, just as finger food dipping into hummus. So easy and fast. I think you could add crushed peanuts into the breading, or use some peanut sauce as a dip. Thanks for the very useful recipe.

Fresh Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
Yup, good. But I think you could double the pear and be fine. It was a little thin/shallow for my liking. Otherwise, taste was great.

Brazilian Bananas

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
This is alright, but I think there are many, many ways to use up 6 bananas that are better than this. The "syrup" is very runny, and the dish is very sweet. Also, the presentation isn't much -- limp, wet bananas. Sorry. The taste was actually alright (and I toasted the coconut, which was good) but I don't think I will bother again. Sorry.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
This is great! I did salt the eggplant first, which may or may not have made a difference. I also found that the baking stage took much longer -- like, twice as long, probably. However, all done, it was a great meal over spagettini.

Broccoli Noodle Salad with Asian Peanut Citrus Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
Great pot luck meal (without peanut allergies, of course). I cut back on the lemon juice a little bit, otherwise, did it as is (with whole wheat spagettini). Good dish. All gobbled up.

Curried Spinach Soup

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
This is definitely a good soup. Would be good for visitors. The lemon, I think, is a really nice touch. I used veg broth to make this a vegetarian dish. Easy & quick to make.

Amazing Simple Thai Tofu

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
Delicious and easy! I doubled the ginger and also added water before adding the peanut butter to smooth that out. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and was happy with the result!

Moroccan Lentil Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
I think this recipe is good, yeah, but not as good as I expected based on the reviews. I found the lentils only took 10 mins to cook, and were mushy in the salad. Next time I will use half to a full can of lentils instead, as I find that they remain firm. I think additional items such as avocado would be nice, but that probably draws away from the ethnicity of it.

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I used this as a starter recipe, and ran from there. I was really inspired by the use of herbs in this rice dish, and loved the flavours! To make it vegetarian, I used silken tofu instead of chicken. I added more garlic, a dash of sesame oil at the end, added peas, fried in an egg, and replaced the green onion with chives. All in all, really useful and delicious. Thanks!

Delicious Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Great recipe! But definitely cut down on the cayenne if you aren't ready to have your mouth burned off. I like spicy, but half the cayenne was plenty. Kids loved it!

Creamy Squash and Sweet Potato Parcel

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Pretty good. Kids both loved it. Cut back on nutmeg, maybe.

Italian Summer Squash Polenta Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
What I like most about this recipe is the versatility. I definintely think the squash is a good idea, but other vegetables can be varied. Other than that, I pretty much followed the recipe exactly. My baby loved it!

Fennel in Wine and Honey

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
The dish was certainly tasty, and I liked it, but it wasn't a major hit on my dinner table. I think it's the fennel itself that was off-putting, not the recipe. I used regular mustard, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly, and I enjoyed the dish overall. I don't use fennel a lot, but with the right overall meal, I think this is a nice addition. Something to make now and then as a surprise side dish.

Parmesan Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
Handy food to have around for pot lucks, snacks for kids, etc. I used fresh spinach, added a little sour cream to combat the dryness some people reported, added garlic & onion powders and cut the bread crumbs down to one cup on the advice of others. Overall, these were tasty, although a little salty, I found. I'm always looking for healthy small foods for my toddler, so this is a really good one. Thanks a lot.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
This is a great recipe to have! Saves limiting pizza to the nights I remember to buy a crust. As per other reviews, I used whole wheat flour, only one egg, and added about 1 tsp of baking powder. This made a good, crispy, thin crust. I topped mine with pesto, brie, pears and pine nuts. Yum!

Calypso Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Good! Surprising! I added a little lime juice, and hand blended the whole thing right in the pot. I used frozen mango, and topped it all with sour cream and cilantro. Lots of compliments at a dinner party. Neat idea!

Pecan Tassies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
These are sort of like mini buttertarts. I did mine in a regular sized muffin tin, and got 12 of them. The crust is not like a regular buttertart; it isn't as sweet. In a way, I like that, but I think you could add sugar to the cream cheese if you wanted something more like a regular buttertart. These are quite good, and I'll make them more for sure. They're easy and look great. Thanks.

Cheesiest Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Nice! Easy! THICK! I really liked this recipe. I made some minor changes -- used veggie broth, added some white wine, used fresh dill (makes a nice difference), and sauteed some celergy in with the onions to add flavour as well. I also used a combo of cheddar and swiss cheeses, and topped with just a little herbed havarti. This recipe allows you to make these kinds of changes based on what you have in your fridge, which really works for me!
