Salmon Patties I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I made some changes to this recipe because I didn't have an onion. I added a teaspoon of dijon mustard, a teaspoon of lemon juice, half a teaspoon of black pepper, two tablespoons of sour cream, and a dash of tabasco. The patties came out delicious, and I am giving this recipe five stars because it provides a great base that you can personalize to your taste.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
This is a fantastic brownie recipe, each time I make it the brownies come out dense and fudgy. The first time I made them, I followed the recipe exactly and they came out great but the chocolate chips all melted and clumped up at the bottom which made them hard to cut, so now I just leave them out. I also found them a bit sweet so I now leave out about half a cup of the sugar and add an extra half a cup of cocoa powder, but that is just personal preference. Every time I make these I get compliments.

Spinach Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I was going to try baking the fritters instead of frying them, to reduce the fat, but the mixture was too runny to make a patty. Instead, I poured the mixture into a muffin tin and baked it at 350 (175C) for about half an hour. It came out great and I would definitely make it again. I also added celery salt and some dill. I'm giving the recipe four stars because it was a great idea and a good base.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
These were really easy to make. I substituted some ingredients to make a higher protein, lower calorie bar. I left out the Grape Nuts, oil, brown sugar, seeds, dried fruit and nuts. I added an extra egg, used 15g of artificial sweetener, 150g blueberries, 100g of apple sauce, 20g of sesame seeds and 20g of peanut butter. The texture came out quite moist, so next time I might leave out some of the apple sauce to achieve a crunchier bar. With my substitutions, it comes out as 104 calories per serving.

Easy Shrimp Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
I thought this recipe tasted like it was from a Chinese restaurant. I didn't have cornstarch, green onions, snow peas or tomatoes. I substitued with flour, 1 tsp ground ginger, and broccolli. Came out perfect.

Slow Cooked Barbecue Beer Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
My husband and I loved this. I didn't quite follow the recipe to the letter. I used Quorn steak strips (a meat substitute) and put all the ingredients into a medium saucepan, brought it to a boil and then let it simmer for about 40 minutes. I served it in a tortilla wrap with fresh baby spinach. I'm sure it would be even better with real beef.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
This recipe is fantastic. It is easy and never fails. I actually divide the dough into four balls and make very thin crispy pizzas. Everyone I've made it for has loved it and asked for the recipe. Edited to add: normally I follow the recipe exactly, but last night I got home late from work and my husband works nights, and we had really been looking forward to homemade pizza. I didn't have time to proof the dough properly so I mixed the dough and proofed it for 45 minutes. I then rolled out the pizza bases and baked them and it came out absolutely delicious.

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This came out really well. The texture was terrific. I omitted the white flour and used all cornmeal, based on personal preference. It took a little longer to cook the first side and the bread a slightly eggy taste, but that could be down to my substitution. I would definitely make this again.

Okonomiyaki

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
I made this with plain white flour, and used chopped cabbage, chopped zucchini, bell pepper, and seafood sticks. It was very easy to do and came out really flavorful and my husband liked it too. We would definitely make this again.

Thai-Inspired Confetti Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Very nice sauce. I'm sorry to say it turns out I don't like papaya, but that's not your fault! I love mango though so will try with that next time.

Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Excellent. I couldn't get diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (I'm in England), so I just used a canplain chopped tomatoes, and half a jar of Discovery brand jalapeno slices in brine. I also did not have lime juice so used lemon juice instead. I also cut the cumin down to .25 tsp because I usually find cumin overpowers the other flavors. The soup came out absolutely delicious. My husband loved it and I am going to serve the leftovers with rice tonight.

Lamb Tagine

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I didn't follow the recipe exactly and it still came out really good. I used Quorn chicken pieces instead of lamb. I added two heaped dessert spoons (about 1/3 cup) of white flour to the bag of spices. I substituted 1 tsp of garam masala for all the ground spices. I only refrigerated the bag of chicken and spices for about fifteen minutes while I cut up the carrots. I also substituted onion powder for whole onions. I only cooked the tagine for 45-60 minutes. Even with all these changes, it was really really good! I served it with couscous that I made with a chicken stock cube and diced dried apricots.

Beef and Barley Soup III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2006
This recipe is a very good base for someone making soup for the first time. I used leftover brisket and added the drippings, a handful of peppercorns, and whole garlic cloves. Perfect for those blustery nights.

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Good recipe. I used 2/3 cup whole wheat flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup S*lenda, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and a dash each of ginger, nutmeg, clove, and vanilla extract. I only had one egg on hand, and the bread came out okay but it crumbled a bit when I sliced it.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Fantastic, and so easy! I added some chopped up broiled bacon to the soup when I added the cream/roux. Husband loved it. I couldn't find clams so I bought a jar of pickled cockles, which I wasn't sure would work but it turned out I didn't have any vinegar in the house so it worked out fine.

Persian Cucumber Yogurt (Maast-o Khiar)

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Absolutely gorgeous! I ate mine with celery sticks for a light snack but would definitely serve it with lamb or spicy chicken and rice. I didn't have any shallots so I used a half a tablespoon of dried onion flakes instead, and chilled it overnight. I also used 2% fat plain yogurt from Sainsbury's. I am going to serve this with the brisket during Passover for a real Middle Eastern meal.

Rice and Lentil Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
Strangely, I found this dish simultaneously bland and too salty. Also, the recipe said to use dry lentils, but I soaked mine overnight and they were still hard and undercooked; I don't know but perhaps I used the wrong type of lentils? All in all, this was a fairly hearty and filling meal but I don't think I would make it again.

Hot and Sour Chinese Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
The eggplant tasted great but when I put it over rice noodles, there wasn't enough sauce for the noodles. Next time I will double the sauce but use the same amount of vegetables.

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
This recipe is fabulous! I've never been able to make decent biscuits, but these scones just popped right up like nobody's business. I think I put in a bit of extra sugar because I didn't have a 1/8 c measure and had to eyeball it. The scones came out perfect--not too sweet and not too bland. The only thing I would do differently next time is use a bigger cookie cutter, I think they would be better if they were about 4" in diameter.
