Maple Caramel Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
The flavour was good but the texture was stodgy. I used cinnamon raisin bread because that's what I had. It was a waste - ordinary bread would have had the same result considering that extra cinnamon was added anyway. No-one wanted seconds. I'd better stick with bread & butter pudding in future.

Pan Seared Red Snapper

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
The sauce was a little too acidic - would use 1 TBSP vinegar next time. Maybe this was why we couldn't taste the ginger. This was our first time with red snapper, which we didn't care for. I'll try again with a different fish and less vinegar.

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Sounded interesting with the orzo & rice combination, but I was disappointed. Despite the onion, garlic & chicken broth it just lacked flavour. I had to add seasoning & fortunately I'd doubled the sauce from the fish dish so it was edible. I'm sorry, but I won't be making it again.

Salmon and Pesto with Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2013
I made this using Basa fillets instead of salmon. I didn't have shallots so used onion & garlic. I had fish stock cubes. I brushed the pesto onto both sides of the fillets with a silicon brush. We all really enjoyed it and my guests raved about it & asked me for the recipe. It was very easy and I'll make again. Served with asparagus.

Peanut-Ginger Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
We enjoyed this very much but like another reviewer, I don't know why it has a curry name - I added a little curry powder for 'kick'. We aren't vegan so 2 cans of chick peas was too much for us - I substituted 3 doz medium shrimp for one can of the peas. Quick & easy. Will make again.

Fabulous Foolproof Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
Browned ground beef instead of sausage (our preference) and then cooked with the sauce, which I doubled, and added herbs. Doubled the ricotta (I actually used cottage cheese to be thrifty). You need a lot of sauce with no-boil noodles for that size of pan, or they won't cook properly. The recipe is quick, easy, and very enjoyable. Company asked for seconds anyway!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Wonderful - apart from scaling down to 6 servings! the only change I made was I used Asiago cheese instead of Romano. I prefer these 'smashed' instead of 'mashed'. Other garlic mashed potato recipes on here tend to be gluey. Will definitely make again and company loved them. 45 minutes seems a long time for potatoes to cook - mine were ready at about 20 minutes.

Kai Kang Dang (Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk)

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
If I could give this 6 stars+ I would. It is by far the best recipe I've found on this site. One can of coconut milk is enough - use it all at once to cook the chicken. We like hot curry too but for this recipe 1 TBSP (of my brand anyway, Patak) was subtle enough. I then threw everything else in together. I used interesting stir fry veggies(unthawed). I cooked everything just long enough for the frozen veggies to be hot but still crunchy which was ample time for the chicken. 3 TBSP of fish sauce is necessary - don't be put off! I used regular fresh basil leaves and it was fine. We can't wait to have this again, and it was sooo easy. Thank you Meghan.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I only used 4 cups of broth. It is absolutely bland. To make it edible I'm going to have to drain most of the liquid off and add my "red" chile ingredients.

Rhubarb Stir Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
I wasn't keen on this because I didn't care for the texture and I expected more of a rhubarb flavour, although it was better the next day. I made it exactly as the recipe with no substitutions. My husband really liked it, but I won't make it again. I think the appearance would have been more appealing with white sugar in the mix and brown sugar on top.

Asparagus, Potato, and Onion Frittata

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
This was a lot of work and not worth the trouble. I followed the recipe exactly and it was very bland. The potato gets lost somewhere - volume probably would be better using those frozen shredded hash browns if you can eat them. I may use the ingredients again, with more onion and no potato and just add beaten eggs to the mix in the skillet to cook, like an omelette. A lot less work, dishes, mess and quicker.

Spicy Cucumber Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I didn't change the ingredient quantities except I doubled up on the cucumbers and it was still way too hot. If I make again I would cut out the cayenne and red pepper flakes and add cayenne to taste at the end. The curry powder may need adjusting too but the soup was so spicy it was hard to tell what the problem was. I've frozen the leftovers with a note to add milk or cream, so I haven't totally given up on it. The rating reflects the fact that IF I hadn't doubled up on the cucumbers, it wouldn't have been edible in our house, and I stress, we do like spicy food.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I made it as stated except I didn't thicken it, it was thick enough. But, quite honestly, it was just as if it had come out of the well known red & white can, so it's just not something I'd bother making again. Uninteresting, and for the leftovers I'll have to add some excitement to it.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
I had to take a salad to a party for 40 people today & decided to try this one. Boy, do I regret it. The pasta turned brown from the dressing. I followed the recipe except for the chicken because the hostess was cooking chicken, and I had to add julienned carrots, diced red pepper, snow peas, cauliflower, jicama just to make it look more edible. Afterwards I wondered why an Asian type salad would include pasta. I was very embarrassed to bring 3/4 of it home and throw out. No, I won't make this again. Without the colour of the veggies it did not look appealing.

Cream of Leek Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This tasted wonderful and was easy. I used the same ingredients except the bacon although I did use bacon grease to cook the leeks and onions. I cooked in the pressure cooker with just 2 of the cups of broth and added the other 2 after processing. Didn't miss the bacon - it was very good without. Will definitely make again.

Fried Garlic Pita

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
We were very disappointed in this recipe, which I followed EXACTLY. It was edible but the taste was lemon, not garlic. Sorry for the poor rating but I won't make this again.

The Perfect Basic Burger

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I can't believe something SOOO basic & boring could make the "daily recipe". I'll stick to my tried and true 3 ingredients - ground beef, dried onion soup and an egg to bind.

Ken's Spicy Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I halved this recipe and omitted water chestnuts & bamboo shoots because I didn't have any. Used red curry paste and red peppers instead of green. Otherwise followed recipe ingredients and this dish was fabulous. We are Indian curry lovers so this milder version was a nice change. Husband loved it and I will definitely make again. Very easy too.

Flavorful Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2008
This was wonderful. My husband thought I'd been slaving over a hot stove! I had one roma tomato that needed to be used so I chopped it and sauteed it with the onion. Other than that I didn't change a thing. I'll definitely make this again, and for company too.

Romaine Rice Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I was skeptical because I'm not a salad lover but it was surprisingly very good. I added 3/4 c. of feta and 1/2 c. chopped walnuts. I think 2 c. of COOKED rice is sufficient. Great combination of flavours and I will definitely make it again.
