Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Made exactly according to recipe and it was soooo delicious. Loved the slight crunchiness of the stems. Never eaten swiss chard before and my husband and I are now big fans!!

Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2001
This was superb. My kids unfortunately don't like bread puddings, but my husband (who doesn't often eat dessert)and I managed to finish it in 3 sittings! I did change the sauce to make it a little less rich and used a tin of Carnation milk, vanilla essence and 1/2 cup of sugar boiled up. Really good!

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
A keeper. Was very popular with guests, even someone who didn't usually eat pasta salads, had two helpings!! I did what some other suggested and added some crumbled feta cheese. Make sure you use a good fruity olive oil - makes the world of difference.

Louisiana Shrimp Creole II

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2001
The meal was stunning!! Our whole family loved it. The only changes I made were that I left out the green bell pepper (no one likes that in our family), increased the garlic and instead of adding chilli, I reduced the tomato sauce by 1/4 of a cup and replaced that with a South African sauce called Peri-Peri sauce which is made with chillies and commonly eaten with seafood. Even my daughter, who does not like spicy food, devoured it and, dare I mention it, ...licked her plate clean when she was finished (she's 11)!!!!

Cheesy Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2000
This was the first time I got my 13 year old son to eat zucchini without a grumble! It was delicious. I served it with marinated grilled chicken steaks, cherry tomatoes and cucumber for an easy midweek meal!

Salmon and Spinach Fettuccine

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Simply delicious!! To make things quicker I bought a fresh Alfredo sauce instead of making the white sauce with parmesan cheese, used sundried tomato pesto instead of sundried tomatoes and added some pre-cooked baby shrimp together with the salmon. Definitely a keeper!!! YUM!

Goulash I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2000
It was a nice & easy dish, but a little bland. We also don't like as much pasta. If I make it again, I will be cutting down on the amount of pasta suggested.

Best Ever Meatloaf with Brown Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2000
My family are not meatloaf fans, but they all loved it!! I had no idea what was meant by "minced onions" (I live in New Zealand) so I just chopped up a quarter onion with 3 fat cloves of garlic in a food processor. I also used a Honey Garlic chilli sauce and it wasn't hot at all. My 10 year old loved it and she can't handle spicy food at all! If it is too hot for some, replace some of the chilli sauce with tomato ketchup. I loved this so much that I have now e-mailed this recipe to friends in Australia and South Africa! Thanks Holly!!

Chicken Chimichangas with Sour Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
Delicious!! I just cut down on the chilli powder, as that would have been far too hot for our taste. Couldn't find canned green chiles, so opted for Salsa Verde instead. Also added some of the Salsa Verde to the sour cream sauce as well as some green Tabasco as someone else had suggested. I opted for spraying the chimichangas with garlic infused oil and baked in the oven at 400 for 5 mins each side instead of deep frying. YUM!! Definitely make again.

Baked Custard

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Delicious!! Worked perfectly. Ate the first two custards just with cinnamon sprinkled on top, then experimented and sprinkled castor sugar over the next two (made 8), torched them, and had beautiful creme brulee!! Definitely a keeper.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
Absolutely delicious. I never add anything to rice when I cook it, so was a little wary about how this was going to turn out. So glad I did it. I only had a can of corn/bean salsa on hand. It worked out really well. Another keeper!!

Waistline-Friendly Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
Left out the tablespoon of chilli powder. Would have made it too hot. Didn't have any green chillies, so used some pickled jalapenos. Perfect and delicious. Definitely a keeper. Served in bowls with garlic bread. YUM!!!

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
Amazing soup. Just enough "bite" to keep it interesting. Definitely a keeper! It has the most amazing flavour! Only change I made was use chicken stock instead of vegetable and threw in some celery leaves.
