Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
I found it quite good - tho' I didn't follow directions exactly - and tweaked with extra herbs/spices like I always. Instead of making a roux tho' - I just put in 1/4 cup of Italian bread crumbs - and it thickened up nicely - that was done on the last simmer phase.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
This is the 2nd time I've used this recipe. Last year people couldn't believe how good it tasted. I am a diabetic - so not having a crust helps with eating too many carbs. I also reduce the amount of sugar used to 1/2 a cup - as well as baking it a 10" spring form - to make more serving slices along with less calories/carbs. You can't go wrong with this recipe!!!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I made this soup today for my family that came to visit for the day. It was DELICIOUS! Because one person was vegan - I changed the chicken broth to just water with a few tablespoons of salted herbes (a product I get from Gaspe in my province of Quebec). I also used a 28 oz. tin of chopped tomatoes, about 1/2 cup of tomato sauce that I had hanging around that was only going to go to waste. I liked adding the pasta individually to the bowls rather then the usual method of dumping the pasta into the soup pot. When I served the soup, I put a good dollop of pesto sauce on the top. My nephew said this really made the soup by putting this on top (he had 2 servings). He now wants the recipe! I'll definitely pass this one on to anyone who wants a simple but tasty soup - and being a Type 1 diabetic - low in carbs!! Guess what I'm having for dinner? FatCatAnna

Mediterranean Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
Excellent way to cook up fish! The only thing I did different was to make up all the mixture that would go on after the fish had baked and put it on right from the beginning to the end of the baking session. I added the juice of 1/2 a lemon rather then just 1 TBSP, also threw in some basil/oregano and abit of extra olive oil to the mixture. I cooked the fish for 20 minutes and the fish was perfect, along with bits of juice in the bottom of the ceramic dish I cooked the fish up in (lined it with parchment paper). I'll be making this meal again when I need a fast fish dish. This recipe is a keeper :)

Puttanesca or Kalamata Kwik Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was a quick/easy sauce to make up! I added abit of red wine into the sauce/along with a few heaping spoonfuls of chopped canned tomatoes/abit of basil/fennel and it was AMAZING! I did add abit more crushed red pepper then asked for, as I like abit of heat. This is something I could easily make up on my sailboat for a quick meal - and not just at home!

Canadian Bacon Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
This was excellent! I added some garlic/onions like others had suggested. Also added abit of Tabasco/Worchestershire sauce - along with about a 1/4 thick Greek yoghurt. I topped it off with about 7 Saltines that had been crushed mixed with abit of Mrs. Dash and left over grated cheese. I placed this all into a casserole dish, and cooked for about 30 minutes until it bubbled and topping was brown at 350F. Served with a side salad - perfect meal for a diabetic gal like myself (am Type 1 of 42 years - like to watch my carbs - but this little "cheat" meal was so worth it!).

Easiest Eggplant

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I did what many others had done - spiced it up abit - and also went one step further in making the meal into parmigani. It was delicious!!! I'm a diabetic - so am hoping I carb counted the eggplant properly. I will bake up my eggplant like this in future - less oils - and so tasty.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
I found this recipe disappointing. Flavours didn't penetrate the potatoes. Won't use this one again - sorry.

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
This was an excellent soup! I didn't have any brown lentils in stock (thought I did - then discovered I didn't). Substituted with green lentils instead. Near the end of the cooking time - I poured in juice and abit of grated lemon to add abit of taste. Also, instead of wine vinegar - used some aged balsamic vinegar - which made this soup even more outstanding in taste! I will make this again for sure.

Maple Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
I used Cortland apples for this recipe. I reduced the maple syrup to 1/2 cup and added some nutmeg/cinnamon to the apple mixture. I substituted the white flour for brown - just to make it "healthy". This is a recipe I will definitely use again and again when I have spare apples needing to be used (mine were abit bruised - and the kids wouldn't eat them). Little did they know that the apples in this crisp are the ones they went "yuck" at a few days ago!

Baked Macaroni and Cheese I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
I used less cheese to reduce fat content - and added tomatoes as suggested by another reader. Why kids prefer KD is way beyond my comprehension - it was delicious!!! Will be using this at my next pot luck - that's if it makes it out the door from my house untouched!

Country Seed Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
This bread is sinful!!! I am new to baking bread - in both a machine and conventional. I changed a few things - added some wheatgerm - extra salt - extra yeast - abit more water. I also eyeballed the measuring of the honey and oil (used olive). Anyway, this bread recipe will be used at least 3 times a week - maybe 5!!!

Stephan's Broiled Salmon Pesto

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
This was an excellent recipe. Will use it again. Only thing that I will change is the cooking time - fish could have used an extra 5 minutes of cooking time - since it hadn't cooked all the way thru' to the bottom 1/4" - but was still tasty. Don't think you can really "overcook" this dish - due to the fish being in the wine/lemon mixture.

Best Ever Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
Needed to make something in a hurry for an afternoon picnic - and had most of the ingredients except substituted dill pickle relish with a few pickle slices diced up - grated a tsp of lemon rind instead of using lemon pepper - used 1/2 cup of green onions - and 1 tsp of dry dijon mustard. Am saving this one in my recipe file. Excellent!!!

Olivada

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
I always have an empty dish to bring home from dinner party when I bring this along. I like to throw in abit of oregano (dry/fresh - whatever you have on hand) along with a handful of diced up sun dried tomatoes (I use ones that aren't in the oil). I have used a combination of olives as well - and it turned out great. Make sure that you rinse your olives first tho' - it cuts down abit on the saltiness of the brine that they are stored in.

Quick and Easy Thai Style Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2005
Brought this to a party and it went over REALLY well. I added 2 tablespoons of a chili garlic sauce (from the Chinese food area of the grocery store) and instead of salt/pepper - added some Mrs. Dash - about a heaping teaspoon. This is a keeper recipe - and VERY easy as well.

Christian's Crazy Sherpa Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2004
I tripled the recipe - added 1/2 cup of diced onions - along with Peppr/Salt/Mrs. Dash/Tabasco/Worcestershire sauce - DELICIOUS!!! Like another reviewer says - great way to use up veggies that are maybe going to heaven. Will make this one again - maybe throw in some eggs to make a fritta. It's a keeper recipe for sure.

Yummy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2004
These came out really good. I added a 1/3 cup of flax seeds tho' to make them somewhat less sinful (with all the fats and sugar they aren't the healthiest - BUT WHO CARES!!!). This recipe yielded me over 6 dozen as well.

Leftover Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2003
With the changes I made to the original recipes I give this 5 stars - otherwise if I'd followed the recipe - probably a 2-3 star. I did cook up the macaroni as advised by others - otherwise I think it wouldn't have cooked properly with the amount of liquid asked for! I didn't add the canned veggies - but cut up my own and cooked them up in abit of olive oil and added them to the mixing bowl. I didn't have a can of cream of chicken - so added mushroom instead - which was fine. Also, for the milk mixture - I glitzed mine up by substituting a 1/4 cup of the milk with marsala wine - made for a very rich sauce. I also added a few drops of Tabasco and Worchestshire sauce as well as Mrs. Dash. I think the next time I make it I will make a bread crumb topping. I can't wait to make it again!!

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2002
I tried using the evap milk - but I should have reduced the amount - also being Cdn - converting American quanties to Metric can be fun sometimes - but I'll know better next time. Topping - because of the liquidy mixture - became burnt abit since it took double time to set mixture - but I remedied the situation by drizzling Quebec maple syrup on top. With whipped creme - you didn't notice the difference - and the kids LOVED it - they had never had pumpkin pie before. This recipe is a keeper - am going to try it on my parents this w/e when I visit - and not make the same mistake as I did for this one. Bon appetite everyone!
