Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
Yummy. Even my husband liked this one, and he doesn't normally like curries.

Arizona Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
This was really tasty. We enjoyed the flavour of the olives. We did add a jalapeno and some hot pepper flakes though for some heat.

Balsamic and Rosemary Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This was fabulous. I didn't have sea salt so I just used regular salt. I also used dried rosemary. I poached the salmon on the stove top with the marinade and a bit of water since I don't have a grill. The flavour of the marinade really came through, but it didn't overpower the salmon.

Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Used chicken breasts and cooked them on the stove top. They turned out perfect. Lovely flavour, not too lemony.

Used hot peppers instead of pimentos. It was delicious! Update: This was even better as leftovers the next day!

Basil Pan-Seared Scallops over Pasta

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
After reading some of the comments about the lack of flavour, I decided to add a hot pepper just in case. It turned out really great. I did reduce the oil and butter a bit though. I also decided to go with sea salt. Very quick and easy.

Bean & Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
I used this recipe to get rid of some hamburgers I had in the freezer. Of course, I had to make do with the ingredients I had on hand, so I used onion soup mix, fresh tomatoes, and added some frozen veggies with the pasta (macaroni). Nevertheless, it turned out really great. I served it with warm naan. I can't wait to have the leftovers for my lunch tomorrow once the flavours really set in. Yum!

Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
These were better than any I've had in restaurants. I added some spices to make it a bit hotter, and I baked the quesadillas instead of frying. Quick to make and easy to clean up.

A Very Intense Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
I used fresh fruit, added half a banana and a couple of spoons of yoghurt. It was by far the best smoothie I've ever had.

Fusion Risotto Vegan

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
This was my first time making or even tasting risotto so I'm not sure if it turned out the way it was supposed to. I do know that the flavours were delicious. I think next time I'll add a bit of chicken; I think that would turn out good. This was so tasty I think I'll serve it to my dinner guests next week.

Bob Evans® Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I was a bit skeptical about this recipe, but it turned out great. Next time I make it, I'll add a bit of spice. I think I'd add some more parmesan too, since I couldn't taste it.

Hamburger Soup III

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
This was a great base. I didn't have any broth so I added some water and taco seasoning to get the liquid I wanted. I cooked the meat and onions first and then simmered with the pasta and frozen veggies til the pasta was cooked.

Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
Unfortunately, after gathering all of the ingredients, I realized that I didn't have a baking dish I could use in the oven. I had to adapt, so I cooked up the beef, onion and celery in a pot with the taco seasoning, salt, pepper, and hot pepper flakes. Once the beef was cooked, I added the tomatoes and salsa, and simmered a bit. I added about a cup of water, kidney beans and corn. Finally, I through in the egg noodles and let them cook in the juices. I served it up with a dollop of sour cream, crushed tortilla chips and shredded cheese on top. It was so good, my husband and I each had two bowls! The best thing was, since I did have to modify the recipe, I had barely had any dishes to clean up at the end. :)

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
I used chicken bouillon instead of wine and increased the amounts of liquids to have enough sauce to cook the pasta in. I also increased the amount of cayenne for extra heat. I had to simmer it longer than planned, but it turned out amazing. Between the two of us, we polished off the whole thing. Next time, I'll definitely make more. I suspect this would be divine as leftovers. :)

Harira

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
We loved this one. One pot meals are such a breeze to clean up after. It was hearty and delicious. I didn't have a big enough pot, so I cut down a little bit on the water. It was probably a bit more concentrated than it should have been, but it was still yummy. I didn't have any vermicelli so I used orzo instead. I don't think the eggs added anything, so next time I will leave them out. They weren't bad, but I don't see the need for the extra cholesterol since there was already lamb. I had to use lamb chops, but they turned out very tender. I can't wait to have the leftovers tonight.

Perfect Lobster Bisque

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
This was a great way to use up leftover lobster. I had to use condensed milk since I had no half-and-half. I also didn't have any chicken broth, so I added a can of bar clams with their juice. I also added a chili pepper, a clove of garlic and a tablespoon of tomato paste. It was a huge hit.

Tomato Spinach Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
I made a nice lunch with this recipe. Instead of oil, I spread garlic butter on a large piece of naan. I stuck with the rest of the toppings and cooked it in the toaster oven. Very quick and simple to clean up.

2-Step Cheesy Pasta Twists

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I was surprised at how good this was. I had to use different brands, but the ingredients were the same. I liked the flavour of the croutons. It was also really quick to cook and easy to clean up. It great as it is, but it would also be good as a base.
