Oven Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I used sugar, salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning and it turned out really good. I will for sure make again. I did have a few fries stick to the pan but that was because those were the ones that didnt have enough oil on them. I suggest adding more oil to the bottom of the pan instead of that spray oil and just when you think you have added enough, add a little more. Oil / butter makes everything better :)

Cheesy Polenta

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Delicious Delicious Delicious! I also added chicken stock instead of water and parmesan cheese instead of cheddar and it did turn out a bit salty because of this. We love salt so its not that big of a deal but next time if making those same adjustements I will cut back on the salt for sure. I served this with BBQ meatballs for the hubby and I had it with Sauteed Mushrooms on Arugala Salad and it was amazing.

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This is tasty but missing something and i dont know what its called. It looks like a small black seed that ive seen on indian/african dishes before. I will have to google it. I started off by adding a lot of oil, we use a lot of oil usually so .5 cup did not seem a lot to me. I sauteed 1 large onion halved and thinly sliced and 4 cloves of garlic, cooked for 5 min then added the spices which i dbled except for the salt. I then shredded 2 xtra large carrots and cut .5 cabbage very thinly and threw them in the pot. I peeled 2 ave size potatoes and cut into quarters and then sliced super thin about a few cm thick and added to the pot. I did have to a bit of water because my potatoes were sticking to the bottom. but not a lot at all. Served with plain white rice.

Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Thanks for the inspiration for tonites dinner. I just finished making the best mushroom rice ever and hubby said the greens i made to go with it were not even needed. I started off by using about 2 tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon of oil and I sauteed about 20 small button mushrooms maybe more thinly sliced, 5 cloves of garlic thinly sliced, 2 spring onion and 1 medium onion cut in half and thinly sliced, few sprigs of thyme because I love it, a teaspoon or so of dried oregano a teaspoon or more of salt and a few dash of worchestishire sauce for about 15 min until the mushrooms were really soft and dark brown. I then added the rice and cooked the rice in the mushrooms for about 10 min max stiring a lot to avoid it sticking over medium heat. Then I added beef stock to get the added brown colour and taste. YUMMY! I let the liquid come to a boil then i put on the lid and put the heat on low and then once the rice was still firm but all the water was absorbed i took the lid off and took the pot off the heat so that the rice wouldnt over cook while it cooled down a bit. So excited for left overs tomorrow, i wanted to lick the pot when it was done it was good.

Vegetarian Moroccan Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Great starting recipe. I added a carrot, few sprigs of thyme, 2 bay leaves a cup more vegetable stock and a teaspoon or so of tumeric. I omitted the topping. I prefer this as a soup rarther on top of the cous cous mainly because when i put it on the couscous it lost its flavour because the veggies didnt have the chance to absorb all the flavour in the short cooking time, but as a soup / stew alone it is yummy! It is one of those recipes I will make again because I always have those ingredients on hand.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
DELICIOUS! I added a bit more chicken stock with corn starch at the end to make it a tad bit thicker and I used italian seasoning instead of dill because i didnt have any and i didnt add the sour cream.... I will try with dill even though it is my least favourite herb, just to see how it tastes. I would most def. double the recipe. Cannot wait to have it for left overs tomorrow. Served with fresh bread and salad for a nice light but filling meal!

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
I used an egg instead of milk and put hot pepper sauce in it. I used seasoned breadcrumbs with fresh grated parm and fresh parsley. Instead of melting butter I put small dabs of butter on top of fish. Squeezed lemon on the top. I put them on a rack to prevent any soggy bottom. served with greens and boiled provisions. it was very very tasty! Quick Edit - I brought leftovers to work the next day and heated it up in the microwave... everyone complained about it stinking up the WHOLE office and hall... I laughed but they didnt think it was funny, so it might not be the best thing to take to work the next day, I have reheated other fish dishes and no one seemed to complain :) !

Jamaican Saltfish Fritters (Stamp and Go)

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Oh lord, these are delicious! I added some jalepeno pepper because thats all the pepper I had on hand and a little bit of celery only because I need to use it up. SOOOOO GOOD! If I wasnt pregnant I would love to crack a red stripe beer and enjoy! You could mix up the vegetable adding sweet peppers etc. I also added maybe a few teaspoons more of water but I am assuming that is because my hubby didnt measure the flour proper. The amount of water / flour is basically spot on! I made my quite thick so I did cook about 7-8 min on each side and I also used olive oil, also all I had. I only boiled the fish for 5 min as directed and the amount of salt was perfect. Oh, I did add 1 teaspoon of vegetable bouillion as well - just for a tad more flavour! Hubby had 7 I had 3.. all gone in 5 min max!

Saltfish Buljol

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
this is a great recipe. My husband is from Jamaica and we cook something similar to this traditionally for breakfast (we do it for lunch and dinner too)but we add ackee to it . I add the saltfish in the pot when water is cold and boil it for about fourty five min. I also add whole green bananas, quartered long way medium potatos, cornmeal dumping and any other ground food (starch) on hand to the pot. Be careful not to over boil the pot because the salt fish water is a pain in the rear to clean. Meanwhile, I chop into small cubes whatever sweet peppers, cabbage, carrots, celery, tomato, onion, garlic, scallion, hot pepper i have to make the "gravy" if i use cabbage i usually grate it so it it is fine and cooks quick. You can experiment. Once chopped, heat high quality oil in frying pan about half a cup or more(i know it sounds like alot) until the oil is hot hot hot and the raw oil flavour is gone. Most important thing is to add enough oil in the beginning to have gravy at the end without having to add more oil. add a few sprigs of thyme and add the veggie mix and cook until soft - 15 min. Get salt fish out of boiling water and debone and shred and add to the veggies. Add some cracked black pepper. At this point you can add ackee fresh that are pre boiled or canned ackee that have been drained. if using canned ackee dont stir after added since the ackee will not hold its shape. Put green banana, potato, dumpling etc into a bowl and spoon the ackee and salt fish on top.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
This was yummy... it is most def. not a mushy stuffing... you could totally omit the turkey livers - i couldnt taste them at all. Would make again. With the leftovers i put it in a casarole dish and pushed little pockets into it and cracked a few eggs in the pockets and backed it for breakfast! YUMMY!
