Pasta with Broccoli and Bacon

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Added sundried tomatoes and a sundried tomato stir-through sauce instead of the spaghetti sauce. It deserves a star just for how pretty the pasta looks when you drain it with the broccoli.

Zucchini Mediterranean Style

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
This is a nice, summery meal. I didn't want it to be so mushy, so instead of a can of tomatoes I used chopped real tomatoes which cooked down nicely but not into complete liquid. Used much greater amounts and variety of dried herbs and chucked in a few black olives for good measure. I think this would be really good with a splash of white wine in the sauce. Actually, I wish I had a chilled glass of wine to go with it, it's one of those dishes!

Penne with Red Pepper Sauce and Broccoli

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
Really nice and simple if you don't bother to blend everything. I used finely chopped jarred peppers and just sauted all the ingredients before mixing with the pasta. Fast and tasty for a mid-week meal.

Chicken with Asparagus and Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Very impressive-looking for how little work it is. Beautiful colours and the balsamic adds great flavour. The chicken didn't come out as tender as I would have liked, so next time I'm going to cut it into thinner pieces for reduced cooking time. Definitely add more broth to be able to enjoy the delicious sauce.

Fantastic Lemon Butter Fillet

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
So good. The sauce is out of this world, so much better than just baking the fish in tin foil with lemon and butter. I didn't think pre-boiling the sauce would make such a difference, but it did.

New Wife Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
Tasty on good multigrain bread with a salad. I had to improvise a fair bit with the ingredients but followed the main idea with eggs, tuna, celery, onion, mustard, mayo and added herbs.

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
So simple yet so delicious. I think I prefer oil packed tomatoes, but the broth that the dried ones had soaked in was a really good way to add some flavour to the pasta. With garlic bread and a salad it's a winner.

I left out the onion and added a few herbs. Nice for a light dinner and would be great in the summer.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
A very good base idea, but needs spices (cumin, curry, cinammon) and much more onions. Great with cucumbure salad and very filling.

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Very good. Used less sugar, bacon and half the broccoli and the proportions turned out great. Love the sunflower seed crunch. Makes a ton!

Bacon and Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This was OK, quite a traditional pasta salad, and as such, not overly exciting, but still tasty. I used halved cherry tomatoes because I like the taste better, and only half the bacon recommended and it was plenty. For the dressing, I used some creamy blue cheese dressing that I had, and added the sour cream, mustard and a bit of mayo to that. Worked fine. I might make this again.

Corn and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
Nice and different when you don't feel like your regular old salad. I served it with a bit of pesto pasta and ciabatta on the side, and it was a great summer lunch. However, I had to make some changes. I had to use a yellow pepper instead of a red one, and that with the corn made it look like a yellow mess on lettuce. I would definitely go for the red next time. Also dicovered too late that I had no honey, added a bit of sugar trying to fix it, but I'm sure it wasn't the same. And finally, the recipe doesn't say so, but it would be nice to chill it for a bit before serving. I'll make this again, and try to follow the recipe more closely.

Rigatoni with Eggplant, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Doubled the garlic, halved the goat cheese and added some basil and black pepper. This is awesome. I need to feed a vegetarian friend tomorrow with the leftovers and I'm very happy I picked this recipe.

Shrimp Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
This could be so nice but falls short of its potential. All the ingredients are lovely and mix really well, so the dressing is probably the culprit. If I make this again, I'll definitely go more heavy handed on the mustard, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Right now it's impossible to taste any of them, so the salad is a bit bland. Lemon juice would probably also help. I'm giving it 4 stars because I really like the idea, not the taste. Will play around with this because it would be a great summer dish.

Five Food Groups Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
This was good but needed a little fixing up. After a night in the fridge all the dressing was soaked in by the pasta, but I just poured some plain youghurt on it and that worked great. Also tossed in some extra raisins because it was a bit bland. Adding some mixed seeds also helps change it up. A nice pasta salad that I ate happily for an entire week for lunch.
