Chicken with Peanut Curry Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2014
As is the recipe needs extra flavour but it is very easy to tweak to your taste so that is why it gets 3 stars. My family enjoyed it with slight alterations, it was fast enough to do for a busy weeknight meal and was very filling. I added extra garlic and some red curry paste . It also needed a splash of milk to thin out the sauce just because my all natural creamy peanut butter was far too thick.

Cherry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
I used lactose free heavy creme for the milk and heavy creme portions, lactose free 3% greek yogurt since we prefer a creamier Ice cream. Didn't know what cherry concentrate was but prefer homemade ingredients in ice cream so I made a cherry syrup with real cherries,water and sugar. Worked nicely and I found the end result was more light like yogurt ice cream and sorbet then rich traditional ice cream. I will make again

Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
Best tasting basmati rice I have made. Looks like plain rice but has a nice buttery nutty taste. Went well with some honey hoisin pork chops :-)

Quinoa with Peas and Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
It works nicely with sun dried tomatoes instead of using roasted fresh tomatoes. I used olive oil instead of coconut oil and a mixture of cream cheese and milk instead of evaporated milk.

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2013
Worked great with all natural kraft pb. Was sweet but not overly sweet but definatly heavy.Froze it over night after processing it in my kitchenaid ice cream attachment to temper the ice cream. Only mod I did was to double th recipe and used heavy cream and skim milk (what I had on hand) I used David Lebovitz's online ice cream making tip so I added 2tsp of vodka to prevent the ice cream to freeze rock hard but might increase to 1Tbsp next time since it was still too hard to scoop for 2Ltr of ice cream.

Tortilla and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Very very good soup.I had to tweak the recipe because our grocery stores in Canada don't stock ranch style beans so I made it from scratch from a recipe online and thickened the soup with 1.5 Tbsp cornstarch after simmering soup for 1.5 hrs. I also used taco seasoning I from this site and ranch dressing mix from another site because I don't buy packets anymore. I replaced kidney and hominy beans with scarlet runner beans from my garden and those worked out well. Served with roasted garlic and black bean tortilla chips.

Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
Awesome recipe which my hubby enjoyed. Only different thing I did was take a tip from a reviewer and do a T cut on the pepper , clean up the inside a bit,stuff it with cheese and close it shut with two strips of bacon wrapped around the whole pepper. Nicer presentation and the cheese stayed mostly inside. Baked them for 30 or so minutes in a 400f oven.

Delicious Gluten-Free Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
We are not celiac but had a friend who came for breakfast brunch who is gluten sensitive, so we decided to do a batch of GF pancakes. This recipe is awesome tasting. It made about 25 3-4inch size pancakes. Only modification we did was replace buttermilk powder and the water with 2 cups actual buttermilk and thinned it out with some milk since the batter got too thick to pour. Added 1 diced banana and about 1/2 cup chocolate chip to batter and let the batter rest for 10 minutes while we worked on the other brunch items. Cooked beautifully and for a GF recipe, you would not notice much difference. Fluffy and moist and everyone enjoyed it.

Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2013
Best bake mac cheese that doesn't clump up and gets grainy. I parboil my pasta only 4 minutes and let it finish cooking in the oven covered with foil for 15 to 20min. Pasta isn't mushy or dried up this way. I use this as my base when I want to make a tex-mex mac and cheese with leftover burrito/taco filling.

Coconut Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
Very tasty curry; not bland for us. Served with basmati rice. Definitely will re do this recipe and play with the vegetable to change it up now and then but original recipe is very good.

Sweet-n-Sour Kielbasa

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
Very good recipe where you can use what you have on hand.I used smoked sausages and spicy kielbasa. I did not have red currant jelly so I used a cup of homemade green grape jelly. Also did not have chili ketchup, so I used reg ketchup and spiced it up with a 1/4 cup homemade Thai sweet chili sauce with added 1/4 cup small frozen berries w/pomegranate in the pot ,but I omitted the water and the flakes since the Thai sweet chili sauce was spicy already.Added one finely diced red pepper for extra flavour. Also fried up the sausages like one of the reviewers said and it turned out fantastic. No leftovers and so glad I tried this with our roast dinner. The sweet sauce was great on the roast beef and on the mashed carrot/potatoes too.

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Second time making it and it tastes good. First time replaced hot fudge sauce for nutella and everyone loved it. This time replaced it with president's choice brand "old fashion dark chocolate" dessert topping and the frosting tastes great too. Thanks for the recipe,no more buying premade frosting since it is getting as pricy as making it from scratch.

Super Easy Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Second time making this recipe but this time tweaked it a little to use what I had on hand. I used 200ml balkan style yogurt fieldberry and 200ml greek style lemon yogurt in 2 cups dream whip (all I had in pantry and it worked fine). Let it sit for a day before eating and all the flavours will come out beautifully. I would definatly use the thicker greek/balkan yogurts to be sure it clings to fruit when dipped.

Easy Baked Mac-N-Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
Very good and kids liked it even with spinach added to it and using mediterannean flavoured bread crumbs. I made my own alfredo sauce as well so it was flavoured like we like it and only baked it for 20 minutes bt next time 15 mins should be sufficient since the cheese darked too much.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
Very tasty recipe that you can modify the herbs to your liking. I added dried dill on top of the other herbs and i reduced the salt(Sea salt) to 3/4 tsp . I marinated 4 frozen wild salmon fillets for 3 hrs And baked them in the oven on a bed of fennel,onion and zucchini. It was superb and my young kids enjoyed it :-)

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
Second time making these and they were again delicious. The first time I did it as is ,this time around, I made them "healthier" by replacing oil with homemade unsweetened apple sauce but still added a table spoon of omega 3 veggie oil.I reduced sugar to 1 cup and added 1/2 cup craisins. End result was delicious but I think I will keep oil to 1/3 cup and the apple sauce to a 1/3 cup since I found the mini muffin paper cups tended to stick to the baked muffins when the oil wasn't used. Yielded 48 mini muffins .Thanks for the recipe.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
We loved it. Had 1/4 cup heavy cream to use up so i topped the rest with milk to get the cup needed. Also added 1 chicken breast chopped small but even without it , the soup would have tasted devine.
