Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
Excellent flavour! I love the many vegetables in the dish. It's an easy way of making sure one gets the required amount of fruits & veggies in a day, plus some! Very healthful which is a big plus. This recipe makes a lot. We consumed it over the course of a few days - sometimes with basmati rice, other times with tandoori chicken and couscous. It would make a great dinner on its own. Thanks for the recipe.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
This is a lovely refreshing salad! It is such an enjoyable first course. My husband thought it strange to have an apple salad but now he's a convert... I used Jonagold apples which is a lovely crisp but mellow tasting variety. The dressing was perfect. Celery, raisins and walnuts complement it very well. Thanks for such a delicious recipe! The only thing I did differently was to leave the apple skins on. Why peel off the most attractive part?

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
This black bean stew is absolutely delicious. I was attracted to this recipe because of all the colourful fruit and veggies. The flavour is unbelievably fantastic! Apart from the chorizo sausage, garlic and hot pepper, I put no seasonings in this stew, yet it had a very satisfying complex flavour. It really didn't even need salt. The colour of the dish made it feel like a celebration! Appearance is everything to me and this certainly didn't disappoint. My husband enjoyed this too. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks for sharing this.

Split Pea and Ham Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
We tried this recipe after Easter, when we had a ham bone to use up. This is a simple recipe with simple ingredients that's absolutely delicious. It's very much like my mother's pea soup. It brought back those pleasant childhood memories. This is an excellent soup to have on a cold day!

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
I had no idea what pancit was. I've never seen it on a restaurant menu so I wanted to try it. From the recipe, I could tell it would be Asian and healthy which is always a plus for dinner plans. We had it for dinner tonight & it was very good in spite of, or perhaps because of, the simple ingredients. What a fresh tasting, satisfying meal! The only thing I will do differently next time is soak the rice noodles a bit longer. They had a tendency to stick together... Other than the aforementioned kitchen malfunction on my part, this is excellent & I'll make it again. Thanks for the great dinner idea!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2013
Very sinful tasting banana muffins! They were very good, even with using only 2 bananas since that was all I had... I found the crumb topping made a lot. I only needed about half of the crumb mixture. Still, they make a lovely treat when ripe bananas are around begging to be used!

Cheryl's Spinach Cheesy Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
We tried this dish because it looked like a fast and easy supper, would be delicious and good for us. This recipe was all these things! I love incorporating spinach in pasta. My husband loves lots of tomato sauce. This dish satisfied both our preferences. It makes good use of foods that are probably already in one's pantry. It makes enough to serve quite a few people and, like all good recipes, is adaptable. There's no fussing making a sauce, good for a speedy dinner and this would be very kid friendly. I may take this to my next potluck! Thanks for this!

Mango Blueberry Muffins With Coconut Streusel

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
These muffins are absolutely delicious! Even my husband, who doesn't like mangos, likes these. The only change I made was to reduce the sugar slightly, reducing it by 1/2 cup. The fruit has so much flavour! The blueberries tasted very fresh and the mango gave a rich underlying taste. Just fantastic! I'll be making these for my quilting group next time I need to bring 'the lunch'!

Rich Pasta for the Poor Kitchen

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2013
This is such a wonderful, basic recipe for delicious pasta that will go with anything. The only change I made was to add some olive oil because I used much less butter. That was because of our age, not necessarily because of the taste. If I were still young it would have been butter all the way!!! This is nice and simple & so fresh tasting. All one needs is meat or fish and some veggies to make this a wonderful complete meal. Thanks for the recipe!

Nanna's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2013
Lovely moist banana bread! I followed the recipe exactly, baked it in my countertop convection oven with excellent results. The recipe is super fast and easy! Mashing bananas up to make banana bread is kind of messy...blending them with the wet ingredients is much less so... Flavourings were excellent and could be adapted to taste.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
This is an excellent fast dinner. It's just what I like. No meat...lots of veggies...and some cheese. It's a very adaptable recipe so really the toppings could be whatever one wishes. Thanks for sharing this dinner idea!

Proper English Cottage Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
This is a lovely adaptable recipe that can incorporate ingredients one may have on hand. Today, I had a large piece of roast beef to use so I tried it in this recipe. I also added frozen peas to add to the veggie content and some cubes of frozen garlic scapes (because we grow garlic)! The suggested spicing was perfect for us - spicing, of course, should be to one's individual taste... With ground beef, this recipe will take me back to holidays in Britain when we had cottage pie in pubs quite a bit! This is a lovely dish and I will be making it again. Like so many good recipes, the results will always be different - depending on what we have... Thanks for this.

Spiced Banana Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
I really liked this banana cake recipe. It made a lovely moist cake with a bit of oat chewiness that I found appealing, besides being good for you. I did make a couple of substitutions. The spice I chose to use was Vietnamese cinnamon which is very intense. I also used Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream because that was what I had. The cake turned out perfectly! Thanks for such a good and successful recipe!

Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
This makes an excellent cheesecake. I didn't follow the recipe exactly...I used 2 eggs rather than egg substitute, since I prefer using real eggs. Also, I added some lemon rind. Except for those two changes, I followed the recipe exactly and the result was a gorgeous cheesecake. The texture was nice and creamy without feeling heavy. It was nicely semi sweet, leaving flavour room for a topping of one's choice. We used a strawberry topping but most fruit could be used with this cheesecake recipe since lemon goes with almost anything. I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for this recipe.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
This was very tasty and very quick & easy to make. These are all good things for a weeknight dinner. I made some changes...adding chopped onion and chopped black olives to the ground beef mixture. I used my own spices that were on hand - chili powder, ground cumin and Mexican oregano. All of these herbs and spices can be used to taste. I used a small tub of low fat sour cream and just enough shredded cheese to cover. This was a hit with my husband. It was supposed to do us for 2 meals, but he ate most of it - a sure sign of success. It would be good to have nice fresh lettuce, peppers, green onions and tomatoes on the side to make the meal more balanced. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe! I'll be making this again.

Dutch Leek Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I wanted to try this casserole for two reasons, besides sounding delicious... First of all, I liked that many vegetables were incorporated into this dish and there was no added fat. Also, I remember dining in a Dutch household many years ago. I think the dish was potatoes and kale mashed together with other ingredients and I absolutely loved it. My husband and I love leeks so that was another reason for trying this. This recipe was fantastic! It was a bit of a job putting it together but well worth it since we like leftovers. It was very satisfying on a cold day and the ham and cheese added a lot of flavour. Of course, the taste of all those leeks, peppers and potatoes will win me over anytime! Thanks for another great dinner idea!

Chocolate Applesauce Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
I have been baking & cooking for many decades. I've baked many chocolate cakes in my time. This recipe produced the best chocolate cake I've ever made. The secret, of course, is the applesauce. Applesauce makes a cake deliciously moist, not dry and lacking in substance. I took one reviewer's advice, and increased the cocoa to 1/4 cup and added a teaspoon of cinnamon. I suspect the basic recipe could be adapted many ways - instead of chocolate chips on top, it could have actual icing. Also, it could become a lovely spice cake - it doesn't even need to be chocolate. I tried this recipe only because I had applesauce and wanted to use it - so I googled 'applesauce' and this recipe popped up. What a lucky discovery!

Wyoming Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
I tried this recipe on a Monday - to use up what was left of Sunday's roast beef. This recipe is very tasty. We both loved the flavour. Unfortunately, I was rushed when making it so it didn't turn out as I imagined. It seemed very soupy. The reason for that could have been because I was using cooked beef. I basically just had to heat everything up. Longer cooking would have resulted in less liquid. When I make it again using leftover roast beef, I'll omit the chicken broth. If I make it with stewing beef, I'll add chicken broth. Anyway, this was very good and I'll make it again. It was perfect or a cold and rainy day!

Easy Cajun Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
This is an easy and very flavourful jambalaya.. It would be a great base for many versions of this classic dish. We added the cayenne, some 'Cajun garlic' we had bought in Charleston, SC at the market, and liberally splashed tobasco all over it. There was a bit of heat, actually a nice bit of heat! I think tomatoes would add to this, otherwise, it's perfect. I couldn't believe all that flavour came from a few basic ingredients. Again, I think recipes need to be adaptable to the cook's tastes and moods. This recipe fits the bill!
