Potato Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Great basic recipe, but it needs a little additional seasoning. I added some garlic and onion powders as well as a little beef bouillon. Next time I'll add more veggies. Not bad at all. Thanks!

Fish in Foil

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
No smell, no mess, no major clean-up... It doesn't get much better than this! Husband likes things spicy so I added two sliced jalapenos to his foil packet. Also used lemon pepper instead of the regular variety. This was a super easy mid-week meal. Thanks, Denyse!

Avocado and Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I wasn't sure about this the first time I tasted it, but it definitely grew on me! I used an immersion stick blender til it was the consistency I wanted. Ate it for lunch with lightly-toasted Italian bread. Really good! Thanks!

Chicken Sandwiches with Zang

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Like others, I pound the chicken breasts thin so they absorb more flavor, and I marinate the chicken in bbq sauce and a sprinkle of dry Italian dressing for a few hours. I cook them on the Foreman grill, and it takes no time at all. This is a great, filling sandwich for lunch - keeps me going all day! Thanks, Heather!

French Vanilla Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Soooo good! The puffs fluff up beautifully, and the vanilla filling is so rich and creamy. I prefer to melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the top - looks kinda pro! I'm not much of a baker but these come out perfect every time. Thanks so much, Lean!

Thai Green Curry Prawns

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I had to omit the lemon grass as it was way too woody to put through the food processor. The only other changes I made were to add more soy sauce (low-sodium) and a splash of fish sauce. I'm not a big fan of canned baby corn but they worked great in this recipe. Served it over wide rice noodles as that's what I had on hand. Good stuff! Thanks, Lee!

Jalapeno Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This was ok. We thought it would probably work better with chicken. I might try that next time. Thanks anyway!

Crispy Cheese Twists

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This is a great recipe for using up puff pastry. I add a little salt and up the amount of Parm. I also squirt some cooking spray on the baking sheet so the seasoning doesn't stick to it. This is a tasty little snack. Thanks!

Zaz's Oatmeal Shortbread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Not terribly shortbready but still very good. The only change I made was to use regular butter. They took about 10 mins to cook. Not bad at all! Thanks, Zaz!

Banana Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Like others, I added mashed bananas to the mixture, and also added a little cinnamon. Topped them with maple syrup and a wee sprinkle of chopped pecans. Wonderful! Thanks, Jennifer!

Sesame Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
I quadrupled the amount of marinade for 2 servings, and simmered it for about 15 minutes before throwing in the marinated shrimp. I also added some sliced green onions. It turned out great but would be even better with broccoli, mushrooms etc. Not bad at all though. Thanks, Jennifer!

Puff Pastry Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Apart from topping the salmon with some finely diced fresh mushrooms, I made this as written, and it turned out pretty well. If I were to make it again, I would roll out the pastry - it was a bit too much for the piece of fish I used. Oh, and definitely cook it on a rack - this avoids the soggy bottom that other reviewers complained about. Not bad though. Thanks, danigirl!

Tomatoed Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Made this with pork tenderloin and serrano chilis as that's what I had on hand. Tweaked the seasonings a little and simmered for about an hour until the meat was melt-in-the-mouth tender. Turned out great - very hearty and flavorful. Thanks!

Pesto-Stuffed Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
Quick, easy and pretty darn delicious - tastes like you spent a long time on it! I cooked it all in a skillet on the stove top. Would work well with chicken too. Thanks!

Bocconcini Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
The store didn't have endive so I had to omit that. I'm not a big fan of raw bell pepper but it worked really well in this. Think I'll try it with goats cheese next time. Thanks!

Patty's Mashed Turnips

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Cut way back on the milk - or, better yet, stir in heavy cream a little at a time - to avoid ending up with nasty watery turnips. I also like turnips and cauliflower mashed together. Thanks!

Lemon Meringue Pie III

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Absolutely perfect! I added a little more lemon juice and zest. It took just over 20mins for the meringue to brown evenly. One of the best LMPs I have ever tasted. Thanks so much, Rhonda!

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I only really made these because I had things in the fridge that needed using up. They were an unexpected hit! I used jarred roasted red peppers instead of pimentos, and jarred jalapeno slices instead of canned chiles. I upped the amount of olives as they weren't terribly flavorful. Turned out great. Thanks!

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I omitted the sugar since it was sweet enough already, and I had to add a little green Thai paste since my jar of red paste had had dried up at the bottom. Other than that, I made it pretty much as written. Served it over brown rice. Not bad at all. Thanks!

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I used baked sweet potatoes, decreased the amount of honey, and ended up adding a little salt as it was still too sweet. It turned out ok but not something I'd make again - the flavors just didn't work well together for us. Thanks anyway.
