Saigon Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
This dressing is amazing. I made extra and added it to my serving at the table. This salad is very versatile and i have used the same dressing on my own variations of this salad. Tuna instead of shrimp, red cabbage instead of nappa, shredded brocolli stems, etc.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This recipe must be followed to a T in order for it to be a success. It never fails. The texture is perfect and creamy and soft. It has just the right amount of sweetness.

Clinton's Special Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
This was really good. The kids said they liked it because it didn't have the 'eggy' taste. The cottage cheese gives it a ricotta texture. I baked these in 12 muffin tins using puff pastry squares. I had some left over egg mixture so I baked that in a small pyrex baking dish without the crust for a wheat free option. Everything was baked in about 25 min. I also used frozen spinach instead of fresh because that's what I had on hand. I also used green onion instead of regular onion because of personal preference. I omitted the nutmeg because I don't like nutmeg in cheese dishes. Again because of the kids, I left out the bottom onion and tomato layer. It seems like a lot of changes but the basic egg mixture was the same, minus the nutmeg. I will make this again. I served the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. It's great for those vegetarian dinners, and for breakfast. To reheat the next morning, just put on a baking sheet and warm in the oven at 350 deg for about 10 min.

Authentic Bangladeshi Beef Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Very flavourful, and tastes almost as good as the curry my Bengali friend makes. That's why it's only a 4. But it's better than i can come up with on my own. Definitely will make again.

Super Easy Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
Good recipe. Tried as written as well as with mustard as some reviewers suggested. Dipped in butter is the way to go. Much tastier. The only suggestion I would make would be to brush chicken with melted butter before putting in the oven. Also best if baked at 375 degF.

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
My kids said this was okay. I will not make it again. I had some difficulties with the recipe. 1-First of all, the crust was not good. While making the crust the eggs curdled, even though I followed another reviewer's advice of adding a little of the chocolate mixture to the beaten eggs before adding it to the whole pot. Still didn't work. As a result the crust did not hold very well. It was very crumbly. 2- The creamy middle was basically the consistency of a thick frosting. It was way too sweet. I didn't understand the point of using custard powder as it was not 'custardy' at all. Also spreading the creamy filling was difficult. It was very thick and kept picking up crumbs from the crust. The only reason I am giving this 3 stars is because the kids still liked the taste.

Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
Quite good. A little too much lemon but that's just personal preference. This presents very well, particularly with the roasted cherry tomatoes as per the submitter's suggestion. I will definitely make this again.

Portuguese Custard Tarts - Pasteis de Nata

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2015
This was pretty good. My kids loved them. The filling was easy to make and the puff pastry shells were just the right flakiness. The taste however was not as close to authentic as i was hoping for. Somehow the filling was not quite right. Nevertheless i will make again because the kids loved them, they were easy to make.... and it's a lot cheeper to make at home for a large family. I think these cost about $2 each at the bakery.

Cauliflower Soup with Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Very mild tasting soup. Good for getting cauliflower into the diet. I didn't have dill so used a pinch each of dried sage, basil, and oregano. Otherwise stuck to the recipe. Next time I would try vegetable broth in place of the water as the soup was very mild tasting and I did have to increase the salt. As a twist I think one could also substitute the cheddar for parmesan. Very rich.

Garlic Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2014
I was looking for an easy no-fuss recipe and voila here it is. Where have you been all these years? This was phenomenal!!!!:-D My family of 7 finished it off with no leftovers. Even I was scraping the bottom to gooble up the gooey pan drippings. I followed the recipe pretty closely except for 2 things. I used warm honey mixed with a dollop of butter instead of the maple syrup as I was out, and I added some dried rosemary 'cause that's what you do with the delectable roasted garlic. Thanks to the submitter for a great recipe.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
Tastes like restaurant noodles. I added shrimp and cabbage. Great taste. Kids really enjoyed it. The only change i made wad to use malt vinegar instead of rice vinegar bc that's what i had. Also i only used 1 spoon of the malt.

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
I used brown rice and substituted the dill weed for oregano because i didn't have the dill. I also used fresh parsley instead of dried. It was pretty good, but I will use less tomato sauce next time. I also added a clove of garlic as it seemed it would lack flavour otherwise.

Dad's Asian Slaw

Must add noodles a few minutes before serving. Very tasty. Most people I have served this to love it and ask for the recipe.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I pour the hot mixture into paper cups for individual servings. Some of my kids find it too rich for their palates, so they often don't eat too much at one sitting, although they love it. Serving in paper cups also allows me to control how many servings they get, and that everyone gets an equal share. TIP: to balance out the richness and sweetness of the pudding, serve cooled with a tablespoon of UNSWEETENED whipped cream. This is an excellent recipe, particularly because it is so tasty and so easy to make.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Never fails. Very easy to make. It is the best homemade crust i have ever made. Sometimes I double up the recipe and freeze one ball of dough right after kneading. I put it in a large oiled freezer bag, pressing out the air before closing. Voila! Frozen pizza dough ready to defrost and rise on the counter (still in the bag) the next time pizza is on the menu. My kids actually tell me that it's as good or better than some of the pizza chain stores. Another tip is to make mini pizzas and put them in the freezer wrapped in foil. Reheat in the oven for only a few minutes. I also pack the mini pizzas for the kids' school lunches.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This was extremely tasty and moist. I had cooked mashed pumpkin, but not enough, so i added shredded apples to make up for it. It still turned out perfect.
