Date Filled Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
Excellent recipe! The cookie dough is so flavorful and combines really well with the sweet date compote. I think I made mine really big, but that let me put a lot of filling in each - which turned out super. Mmm. I will make these again. The only thing I changed is that I added some cinnamon and some lemon juice to the dates.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
Fabulous. I didn't listen to any of the reviewers - the only thing I changed was that I added cinnamon. Otherwise, I did it all exactly to recipe and it was beautiful. Doubling the recipe worked just fine.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
This is a great recipe, with a few minor changes. I wish I could give it a 4 1/2, but I'll be generous. So here's what I changed: like other reviewers I replaced half the oil with applesauce, and replaced some of the cinnamon with nutmeg, allspice, and ground clove. I also used brown sugar instead of white, seriously... why use tasteless old white sugar at all when you have tasty, tasty, brown yummyness. My zuke had more than 2c of flesh, so I used it all - I think it was around 3c. All these changes and this recipe turned out fabulous - it's my go-to zucchini bread now. Next time... chocolate chips!

No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
A little soft and sticky. Instead of using 1 cup coconut and 3 cups oats I used 2 cups of each. I think next time I would use 3 cups coconut and 2 cups oats. Otherwise, very tasty.

Black Forest Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Fabulous. The best black forest cake recipe I've tried, and I've tried a lot. The cake baked up beautifully, the cherries were perfect, and the whole thing just came together wonderfully. The only change I made (and I heartily recommend it)is that I made a syrup out of 1/2 cup reserved cherry juice, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup Kirsch (cherry liqueur - added after the juice/sugar simmered for a bit and then cooled). I drizzled this syrup over the cake sections before I spread the cherries and whipped cream on. It added moisture and tied everything together. Yum!

Tartar Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I don't understand why everyone is so in love with this sauce. Yes, it's easy, but it is also rather bland. I used twice the amount of relish, and then poured some pickle juice into it as well to try to give it some flavour.

Green Tomato and Bell Pepper Delight

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
Kind of blah. It had a nice tartness to it, but no flavour to speak of. We ate it, but will find another use for green tomatoes in the future.

Orange Soy Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
Wow, phenomenal. It made the tenderest, juiciest, most flavourful pork loin I've ever had. I can't speak to the rosemary issue, though, as I had none so I omitted it. I added extra garlic because I am a garlic fiend! If you don't make a gravy out of the drippings you are losing out. I will definitely make this again.

Czech Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
This was wonderful, a really delicious cabbage dish. I used turkey bacon instead of pork and it was still really flavorful. Just make sure to fry the bacon, not microwave (yuck!). I did as other reviewers suggested and just threw the cabbage in with the veggies to cook and it turned out wonderfully. I will definitely cook this again.

Czech Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
The best stuffed green peppers I have ever tasted. My partner doesn't usually like stuffed peppers but she really liked these ones. The sauce was incredible, I think I may make it alone as a creamy tomato soup, it was that good. I made a few substitutions: I used veggie ground roung instead of beef, yogourt instead of sour cream, and I didn't have marjoram so I omitted it. It would probably be even better with beef, but making it vegetarian cut down on the fat.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Awesome. Absolutely perfect. They were nice and big, crunchy on the bottom with a wonderfully soft bite and the raisins were fabulous. Everyone raved about these and I will certainly make them again and again.

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
Fantastic! I was a little skeptical at first, as the sauce just seemed...wierd. It was absolutely incredible, though. I made it exactly per the recipe and I will certainly make it again. I'm already scheming up other ways to use the sauce!

Leftover Chicken Croquettes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Excellent base for chicken croquettes, but I had to add spices to make it more interesting. Based on other reviewers, I added a third egg, some parmesan, some basil and oregano. It was fantastic! I served it with cranberry sauce. Next time I think I will add some pistachios, and cardamom to give it a Moroccan feel, or else some curry powder, turmeric, and paprika for an Indian taste.

Absolutely Perfect Palak Paneer

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
Fantastic! The most authentic tasting palak paneer I have made. Like other reviewers sugessted I doubled up on the spices. I also fried the onions etc in cooking spray rather than oil or butter, and I used fat-free yogourt.

Easy Vegan Whole Grain Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2005
Wow, absolutely fantastic. Light and fluffy, tasty, and satisfying in a way I never thought "healthy" pancakes could be. I will definitely make this again, and probably soon. I didn't have rye flour, so I just used whole wheat, and I used sunflower seeds instead of pecans. I also added two sliced bananas, although apple cubes would be good too. I needed to add another 1/4c - 1/2c of liquid, though, as it was more like dough than batter.

Curry-Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
This was absolutely fantastic. The only changes I made were I doubled the coconut milk, curry powder, and crushed red pepper flakes, and just before I served it I added some shredded coconut. Wow. I will definietely make this again. I think it would also be great with tofu or chicken instead of shrimp.

Great Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
I made it exactly like the directions but after simmering for almost 20 minutes it was still a runny mess. I had to add more flour to it in order to thicken it. There is way too much milk; it came out, not gooey and delicious, but like cheese sauce with a couple of noodles thrown in for texture. Maybe try to cut the milk down to 2 1/2 cups.

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
I made this pie yesterday and I am very disappointed with it. It is bland and it has a strange eggy texture. It took 2 hours to bake, even my tarts took 45 minutes. If you must try this recipe, I would suggest adding more spices (maybe even add a couple of spoons of molasses), and maybe reducing the milk. It was very runny, and while it did eventually firm up, it took hours. As with other reviewers, I found it made much too much filling.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2004
Wonderful! Moist, chewy, not at all cakey. These were really fantastic. I even loved the icing, although I didn't like the vanilla flavour in it. I'll leave the vanilla out of the icing next time. A great basic recipe!
