Garlic Chili Prawns

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
You can make it spicier by adding more chili sauce.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
I really like this recipe - I already have been using it for a variety of meats on the grill. i'M giving it 5 stars even though I made quite a few changes, just because its a good starting point for your own additions. I added lemon zest and some lemon juice to the marinade, as well as one tsp of sesame oil, minced garlic and finely grated ginger. I used spring salmon fillets and marinated for 6 hours in the fridge, and then baked the fish in a hot over, in a foil wrapped dish. I also didn't drain the marinade, nothing wrong with pouring a bit in the baking dish to give it moisture. It really came out moist and flavourful.

Almond Wild Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Everyone absolutely loved this dish! I added a finely chopped small apple to the almonds while sauteing them in the butter, and I think it added a little extra moisture. Its a pretty flexible recipe I think, next time I want to try pecans instead (or together with) the almonds.

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
I enjoyed the flavour of this cheesecake, but the texture was a little bit too dense for what I was looking for. I thought having the ricotta would make for a lighter cake. I got rave reviews from my guests. Next time I think the temperature should be lower - maybe 325. I got a deeply cracked top and slightly browned edges, but not enough to affect the flavour - I trimmed the golden brown edges anyway, and covered in cherry sauce with whipped cream, so no one could tell.

Spanakopita II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
My guests really enjoyed this appetizer. The feta cheese is pretty salty so next time I'll omit adding any extra salt to the spinach mixture.

Pierogi Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Yum! I tweaked this recipe a bit, like another reviewer I prefer a thicker piece, so I made more mashed potatoes. I also stirred the onions and garlic into the mashed potatoes. I alternated potato, bacon, noodle and cheese in that order, X3, and also covered the dish with foil. I would also recommend baking for at least 45 minutes, 30 is not enough to warm the centre and melt the cheese topping.

Crispy Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Great recipe! I think that the lid should be kept off during frying though...I made a batch with the lid on, and then one with lid off and the second one was crispier. I also marinated my chicken in a tabasco-salt water marinade for a couple of hours before preparing. I like to season my flour as well.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
A great beef stew! This is the first time I've made it without using a can of tomatoes. We like spicier food in our family so I dredged my meat in a spiced flour mix (paprika, garlic powder, black pepper). Also, its a good idea to salt the stew only at the end of the cooking time. I used 3 pounds of good steak...decadent, but so worth it.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
BLAND bland bland. Sorry, it looked beautiful out of the oven, and my husband liked it....but I found it quite flavourless. I doubled the sauce part as recommended by other reviewers, and added poultry seasoning and garlic salt to mine, but it didn't do the trick for me. I'm not a huge chicken pot pie fan to begin with, and this recipe did not convert me. I would think that it needs some fresh herbs to make the flavour more interesting.

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
I enjoyed this cake. I baked it in a bundt pan and it needed about an hour to cook through with a great golden brown top. I just dusted mine with icing sugar as the cake is rather moist and sweet, so it doesn't require an extra flavour of icing. I also added 1 tsp of grated orange rind & half tsp ground nutmeg & clove to mine, because I like the spicy citrusy flavour. I couldn't even detect a strong pumpkin flavour (which is good!).
