Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
Delicious! I only use red peppers, because that's what I usually have on hand. Green peppers would add a nice touch of color though. Thanks!

Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
My DH loved it! The only difference I made was to use brown sugar to coat the apples and half white half brown sugar in the batter. I also poured half the batter before adding the apples, and then the other half (instead of thirds). Thanks!

Not bad, I also used refried beans to make the meal a bit healthier, with salt, pepper, and a bit of cumin. Thanks!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Awesome. I used half an onion, half a red pepper and half a green pepper. I also used basmati rice. It was quick and delicious. I may have used a bit more cheese..

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
They rock, what more can I say =) I used half normal olive oil half canola, because I dont buy light olive oil. Also, 1 cup nuts 1 cup cranberries. I kept them a bit longer in the oven to dry out, just with the heat off and the door slightly open. Delicious! I might try the version with orange extract too.

Really good, I used less sauce but that was the only change. I will certainly make it again. It made great leftovers.

Pizza Without the Red Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
I often use the sauce, but replace the pesto but pasta sauce. I don't like too much tomato sauce on my pizzas, and the amount in this recipe is just perfect! I have tried all the recipe once, substituting pepperoncini for the jalapeno, and it was delicious. Thank you!

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
It was good, but I thought that the flavor of the carrots was a bit overpowering. I will use less next time, and maybe add a few spices. I tasted before and after adding the cream, and it's definitly much better with.

Sky High Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
Very good! They rose very high and didn't deflate. I would check them after 25 mn though. After 30 min, they were slightly too brown. Thank you!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2006
This recipe IS forgiving! I thought I had all the ingred. but didn't. In the end, I used 3 eggs, 4 oz of feta, 4 oz of mont. jack, a 6 oz bag of spinach, no mushrooms, and about 1/2 cup of milk. I precooked the crust for 5 minutes. It was very good, but the leftovers were not. Will make it again! Thank you.

Naan

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
I thought it was a good bread, but not really naan. Also, it was a little bit too sweet. I will use less sugar next time. I will also reduce the heat.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
Oh God, these are so incredibly delicious! I divided the recipe by 2, and made 12 cookies out of the batter. I baked them 11 minutes. They were amazing. Thank you for this wonderful recipe! (I only used butter, and kosher salt)

Very good, but do not forget to strain the soup or else it will be full of fibers. Will make it again!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Delicious, but it's more a cake than a brownie. My husband thought that it was too much choc. with the frosting, and that a cream cheese frosting would have been better. I froze half and we'll see if it's good after it's thawed. Thanks! UPDATE: I made it again and we could see the zucchini! I would suggest soaking the shredded zucchini in the oil first to get it really moist, and then continue with the recipe. It's the only thing different I did the first time...

Thai Charred Eggplant with Tofu

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
I made some changes (used 1 eggplant, no cilantro and less basil, fried the eggplant slices, sprinkled some soy sauce on the tofu, and used red peppers instead of chile). It was excellent and very flavourful. I served the dish with white basmati rice cooked in vegetable stock. Will definitly make it again!

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2006
It was very good, but it did not really have a coconut taste... I made 1 change: instead of using 3 cups of milk, I only used 2 cups + 1 cup coconut milk. If you don't expect a strong coconut taste, it is a very good pie. Be sure to use a non stick pan. I used stainless steel and the sugar burnt at the bottom, giving the pie a slight burned taste. That wasn't the recipe's fault though. Thanks for sharing!
