Stabilized Whipped Cream Icing

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
This didn't work for me- the gelatin either didn't dissolve or did dissolve and immediately started clumping up. The product was grainy, had lumps of gelatin, and looked "broken." I did use HeatherLovesBudgies's technique after reading the feedback and was swayed by the number of people who noted it as helpful so that may have been the problem. Could also be a user error.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2012
This was really good. We added some chicken but it didn't necessarily need it if you had a side dish. My red lentils also cooked in about 5 minutes as opposed to the 20-30 minutes indicated on the package. Did you know that lentils are the protein with the lowest carbon footprint?

Jumbo Shells Stuffed with Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I made some changes to the recipe based on other reviews (adding some spinach, substituting and using milk instead of cream) and the filling turned out dry and crumbly while the sauce evaporated when it baked, making the creation of a sauce a useless expenditure of work. If I made the recipe again, I would add more ricotta to the filling and add less spinach and turkey. I would bake the shells in vodka marinara and just sprinkle the cheese on top.

Brazilian Collards

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Tasty but too spicy. I would probably start with 1/2 tsp of cayenne and then add to taste. I did mine in the crock pot for about 8 hours after browning the salt pork and onion in the pan.

Chocolate Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Since I had a darker chocolate, I used less and it turned out quite thin and runny. It also separated as it cooled.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
Good, but needs a can of diced tomatoes or two to help cut the cheesy sauce. I also ended up with so much sauce stuff that I cooked an extra 6 oz or so of pasta to add.

Mint Pesto Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
I would recommend making this only with homegrown tomatoes, as it needs the extra flavour. Like another reviewer, I also didn't add the chopped tomatoes to the pesto in the food processor and instead just spooned them on top of the pasta mixed with the pesto. Other recommendations- add fresh or dried oregano for extra flavour, use rigatoni instead of linguini, as it's easier to stir and eat, and add a little extra water to make the pesto mixture more saucy.

Spinach, Sausage and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I was looking or something quick and easy to make for a potluck with ingredients around the house, came up with this, and it was great. I didn't have sausage so I used ground turkey with some extra italian spices and used about two cups of cooked pasta instead of half of the spinach. I also used a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes and a 4 oz can of tomato paste instead of the tomato sauce.

Simple Waldorf Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2006
I added more apple and celery than the recipe called for. I also plumped the raisins by microwaving them in some water for a minute and toasted the walnuts. I took the advice of other reviewers and reduced the vinegar to about 1 3/4 tablespoons and added about a 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. It turned out tastey!

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2006
Excellent! Ours cooked in 5 minutes total and certainly did not need the peanut sauce. I did make a peanut sauce that I put over cooked rice noodles and heated frozen stir-fry vegetables. For my peanut sauce I used about 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter then added to taste somewhere around 2 tablespoons of light soy sauce, 2 tables spoons of white sugar, a tablespoon of rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon of chili oil, 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder, and about 1/2 cup warm water.

WWII Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2005
Cookie was really moist and flavourful, especially if you like molasses cookies. I didn't bother to sift the dry ingredients and instead just dumped all but the oats into the wet ingredients. Stirring the oats in at the end worked out perfectly.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2004
I had some of this leftover the day that I went to pick fresh strawberries and instead of putting the strawberries over a yellow cake that I made for my bf, who isn't very into chocolate, we ended up splitting the leftovers with sliced strawberries on top. I would recommend not sugaring them though, as it would be too sweet and the trifle doesn't need any more moisture. Would be great with fresh strawberries layered in as well. Overall, great recipe, don't be afraid to experiment with it- Definitely worth buying a trifle bowl for!
