Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
Take the shortcut and use preshredded coleslaw. It makes this recipe quick and easy. I then added the cilantro and green onions since I had them. I didn't really measure anything for the dressing, just eyeballed the measurements, whipped it in my mini processor and it was fab. I halved the dressing as others suggested but found the'slaw too dry, so I whipped up a bit more and it was perfect. I agree about only using fresh ginger and garlic, it wouldn't be the same without it. I also think the cilantro was a key ingredient, giving it a distinct Thai flavour. I too added the chopped roasted peanuts on top-Excellent!!! My husband loved this and I'll definitely make it again.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2004
Oh.My.God. This soup is sooooooooo good. Very hearty and delicious. I put a few extra things in, like some red wine and worchester and some extra herbs for added flavour. I also added some onion and extra garlic. My hubby loved it and I'm definitely putting this soup into heavy rotation for the winter. YUM!

Vietnamese Chicken and Long-Grain Rice Congee

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2004
I tried chicken congee in New York's Chinatown and had to attempt to duplicate it! I used chinese chicken broth from a can, added the lemongrass, ginger and soy, brought it to a boil and added a chopped boiled chicken breast I already had, and the rice. I agree wholeheartedly that the lime at the end is essential to finish the dish. I found that the congee thickened quite a bit once I put it in the fridge and I just added a bit of water when I reheated it to bring it back to the proper consistency. Excellent!

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
This was an excellent dip. It made a huge bowl and was one of the only things devoured at a recent party. The only change I made was adding parmesan reggiano instead of romano cheese. Awesome!

Marinated Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
I made this twice, for two different groups of people. I was thinking that the first group must've been wrong since everyone pretty much avoided it, but no. It was oily and too messy to eat. The flavours were ok but it wasn't something you wanted more than one or two bites of. It didn't present well on the dish no matter how hard I tried to make it look appealing, it just wasn't. I would not make this again.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
These were easy and yummy. I have made them twice and they were a huge hit each time. I have tried a couple types of wraps, including alternating sundried tomato wraps with a spinach pesto wrap for a great Christmas presentation. Extra points because they are better made a day ahead and just sliced and put on a tray for your party. What could be easier? I also tried mixing up the ingredients with fontina and mozzarella cheeses, and green olives, roasted red peppers and sundried tomatoes. Very, very good.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
This recipe is awesome. I have made it several times, and it is really, really good. If you are pressed for time just use the canned black beans, toss the rest of the stuff into a slow cooker, (I also added a can of diced tomatoes) and when you get home, dinner! I just pureed about 1/2 the soup for a more authentic look, and served it with chopped green onion, sour cream, cheddar cheese and homemade guacamole. Also, although I am not a huge fan of spice, I found this just right with the amount of cayenne recommended and two minced jalopenos. They really mellow out in the soup and it won't be that spicy, just the right amount. YUM!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2004
I made this last Christmas and it was a BIG hit! I also made more traditional candied yams in case no one liked this but there was no need. Everyone loved this recipe! I added a bit of nutmeg & cinnamon and cut back the sugar a bit. Fabulous. I'm making it again this year by popular demand!

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
I made this for Christmas and it gave me two good sized balls. I added less of the ranch seasoning but substituted in a couple cloves of finely minced garlic, a dash of worchester and hot sauce. I think these additions took it beyond the bland that it would have been. It was even better after the first day. Great recipe!

Layered Seafood Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
I made this because I'd had something similar tasting at a Christmas party and this was so good! I didn't muck around with the recipe at all, just made it as it said to and it was great. Big hit!

Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2005
This was pretty good. I too used leftover roasted chicken which made it easy to make, but I felt it lacked something. Definitely needs some tabasco for zip, and...? I might try this again, and make some adjustments to see if I can improve upon it somehow. Worth trying, but not a dynamite recipe.

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2005
I added scallops to this recipe and it really turned out very well. I served it for a small dinner party (4 people) and it was the perfect amount. My only complaint would be that it was very, very very rich. I think it would be better as a primi or starter plate than as a main dish. The champagne lent a nice flavour but I think it would be as good with wine or even vodka. I served the leftover champagne to our friends as they arrived and kept what I needed for the recipe. Your friends will be impressed!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2005
I made this dip also for a small dinner party and I cut way down on the butter and the feta, and added just a couple of tablespoons of each (it was still a bit salty) but it was still sooooo good. I think this would be superb with goat cheese instead of feta and I will try that next time. Beautiful presentation and excellent taste!

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2005
I added a little fish sauce, sugar and lime juice to my noodles and served it with the hoisin sauce with peanut butter. ( I did heat this on the stove and added a little water as another reviewer suggested.) I left out the lettuce as the rolls I have had usually don't include it. These were really, really good. My only problem was rolling them nice and tight. I think not overfilling them and practice are the only solution there! Very nice and light, a perfect compliment to any Vietnamese or Thai dish.

Maryland Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2005
I didn't have any saltines so I added breadcrumbs instead and these turned out pretty well. They didn't fall apart, but I tried frying them instead of broiling and I found they were cooked on the top and bottom but not all the way through. (I think that's my fault for putting the heat too high.) I will try these again and see if I fare better next time. I also used the Costco canned crab and I thought they needed some more crabbiness to them so next time I will mix with some imitation crab meat chopped small and see if that helps intensify their flavour. I think fresh crab meat would be the best choice but being that that isn't readily available here (without spending a small fortune) I kind of have to make do with what I can get. Worth trying! I served with horseradish marmalade mixture.

Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2005
Once you start making your own guacamole you'll never buy it again! I have made this many many times but with a couple of changes. I only 1/2 a lime's juice, otherwise I find it too acidic. I don't put in the tomato but I do add extra garlic (at least one extra clove) and a good sized handful of chopped fresh cilantro (makes a huge difference). I also add a tablespoon of sour cream for creaminess and a little drizzzle of olive oil to help preserve it. Leftovers do not keep well but if you make sure your container is absolutely airtight you will get a couple of days before it turns brown. Try this with Black Bean soup or your favorite Tortilla chips-YUM!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2005
I wasn't looking for this recipe. I only happened upon it by accident and thought it looked easy and worth trying. Boy, was it! I whipped some of these up for lunch (using the box grater slicer). Super easy and delicious! I too found they took more time (about 7-9 mins) even though my potatoes were really thin. I used parchment paper directly on the turntable after I scorched my fingers trying to move the plate after the first round. The parchment paper totally eliminated any sticking. I just used olive oil and salt, but will try other seasonings and sweet potatoes in the future. Thanks for a great recipe!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2005
These were pretty good. I followed the recipe except I used rice sticks (like those in Pad Thai) for a more authentic thai flavour. I will try these again to see if they are better with other noodles. Points for a super easy recipe though that uses ingredients that most people will have handy and can whip together very quickly.

Chicken Hurry

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2005
The flavours were good, but I'm not so sure about the "hurry" aspect of this recipe. It wasn't exactly a super-quick recipe but worth trying. I used chicken thighs and they were juicy and moist.
