Herbed Mushrooms with White Wine

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Yum! We don't have mixed italian herbs in one bottle, so I just used what we like that I had on hand - parsley, oregano and a tiny bit of rosemary. and the chives. Oh, and sometimes I add a little chunk of butter into the oil, so it almost sautees - we like it. This was so easy and delicious! will make it regularly.

Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
I gave this 5 stars with the changes I made. I used some suggestions by other reviews and tweaked it to make it the way we like it, and it was amazing! First, I didn't have a roast, so I actually used Y-bone steaks -relatively cheap cut and fantastic for the slow-cooker as the bone adds flavour and by the end of the day the meat was FALLing off the bone tender! I started by rubbing the meat with salt, pepper, minced garlic, dried onion flakes, and paprika (instead of the cayenne suggested by other users, as we are a bit shy of hot spices). I just basically covered the meat in this dry rub seasoning. Then I put it in the crockpot and covered with the coffee, beef stock and also added about a TBSP (or a little less) of whole grain mustard. It made the whole house smell amazing all day, and it was a real hit with my husband and my little girl. Will definately make this again. Didn't make the gravy this time (we had it with roast veggies in the oven) but next time I might make the gravy and mashed potatoes. This is so easy to make and versatile and yummy!

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
We love this recipe! Have been making it for years. We don't like things too spicy, so I use paprika instead of cayenne, and we love it. I also usually omit the spinach, as it seems a bit too much. We LOVE the carrot-ginger juice - that's the best way to make it. And the raisins add this really cool sweet and juicy hit at the end. I love to serve this at dinner parties - it's always a delicious surprise, and it makes the house smell good for a long time! Oh, and I use a large, deep electric fry pan to make this, since I don't have a dutch oven. The electric frypan works great for all the steps - it simmers well too.

Crispy Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
Yummy! I added some dried onion flakes and dried parsley in with the potato flakes. I also did the light coating in flour before putting the fish in the egg mixture - as suggested by others. Otherwise stuck to the recipe. My husband and little girl and I all loved it! Delicious and so easy!

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
This was absolutely delicious! I made this for my first ever Thanksgiving Turkey...for family and friends in Australia who had never celebrated Thanksgiving before. They were all very impressed and said it was the best Turkey they'd ever had. The turkey was golden, crispy and moist, and The juices make the base for a beautiful gravy. One tip my Mom gave me - I cooked the turkey upside down- all the fat from the dark meat runs down to baste the other meat. It was great! Another tip I got from Jaime Oliver- I rubbed the buttery mixture not only on the skin, but under the skin as well. I didn't use stuffing, but popped a half an apple and half an onion in the cavity for flavor. It was devine!! I will definately use this recipe as a starting point for my next Thanksgiving Downunder!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
So yummy! This is now one of my favorite recipes. I play with it a bit... I like to add a small box of raisins while it simmers - we like that contrast of sweet and savory. I also leave out the cyanne pepper to keep it milder, and dry roast the spices before adding the oil, as suggested by others. I always add a whole can of lite coconut milk (the leftover can wouldn't keep, so I might as well, and it tastes great!), and once when I didn't have much yogurt, I substitued some thickened cream instead. That was just as yummy. Sometimes I add a few veggies, and sometimes just keep it purely chicken. This is such a flavorful and flexible recipe! I have a lot of fun with it!
