Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
I found this recipe very quick and easy to prepare. My husband loved it, I did too, the meat was so tender and the flavour great, but it was almost too rich.

Vegan Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
I practically live on this soup - it is soooo good. Word of warning - careful which type of chili powder you use - I recently changed brands to a local brand (I live in Asia) and the soup was so spicy I had trouble eating it.

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2006
yum, yum, yum, I just finished eating this for lunch (leftovers from last night's dinner) and it is definitely my favourite salad. Sometimes I leave out the tomatoes and avocado and add more corn and bell pepper (love the crunchiness) but either way, it's always delicious and healthy.

A to Z Everything-but-the-Kitchen-Sink Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
Fantastic - I love chewy cookies and these are amazing. I added an extra cup of choc chips instead of walnuts (my kids don't like nuts) and used dessicated coconut instead of coconut flakes. Also used rice crispies instead of corn flakes. Made them a bit bigger and baked them for 15 minutes and they are a huge hit in our house!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
I thought this was way too sweet. I will try it again with some lemon juice to tone down the sweetness. The cooking time was also way too long, I checked mine after 20 minutes and it was already a bit over-done. It was really quick and easy to prepare though.

Smoked Salmon Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
Hmmm...wasn't too keen on this based on the original recipe - way too cheesy for me - I ended up using only 1 8oz package of cream cheese, but 1 pound of smoked salmon (1/2 whipped into the cream cheese to turn it pink, half chopped and folded in) and used 4 tsp worcestershire sauce and 3 tsp hot pepper sauce, and then added juice of 1/2 a lemon. Also used 5 chopped green onions. Then it was pretty good!

Vietnamese Style Vegetarian Curry Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
We loved this! I left out the mushrooms, substituted 2 large cubed sweet potatoes for the regular potatoes, and added a handful of curry leaves. Also I didn't fry the tofu, I used firm tofu diced into small cubes. We couldn't stop eating it! Great the next day reheated too.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
This was pretty good - but I made lots of substitutions as I didn't have everything on hand - used 3 diced onions, 2 diced red peppers and 2 diced yellow peppers instead of frozen mix, added 1 tbsp paprika as others suggested, added hot pepper sauce, juice of 3 limes (stirred in at end) and a can of black beans added same time as corn. Really enjoyed it.

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
I have been meaning to rate this for ages - it is absolutely delicious - incredibly unhealthy and fattening but, still, delicious. I made it for New Year's Eve 2004 (I told you I'd been meaning to rate if for awhile!) and we ate almost all of it even though there were only 8 of us...yum.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This is fantastic and so healthy. I cut the black beans in half and did everything else according to the recipe, and it was delicious and really easy. Husband loves it, guests love it, I love it...

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This was pretty good - I made a few changes, left out celery seed as I didn't have any and substituted 1 tbsp prepared mustard for the mustard powder as I had run out. Also left out the flour and butter - just combined all the sauce ingredients in a baking dish, threw the chicken breasts in with it, marinated it for 4 hours and then put the whole lot in the oven for 1/2 hour. The chicken was incredibly tender, the sauce had quite a bite to it but not too much. Made it for guests who commented on how tender the chicken was. Served it over Quinoa and Black Beans from this website. There was lots of sauce left over so I baked pork chops in the remaining sauce and they were really good too.

Asian Barbequed Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2006
This was a great marinade. I used porterhouse steaks from Australia and let them marinate for 48 hours - don't know if it was good steak or the marinade, but they were really tender even though my husband overcooked them a bit on the BBQ (few too many beers while cooking!). The flavour was great too and our guests raved about the steaks.

Ma Po Tofu

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
Good flavour but way too salty for me. Would definitely cut down on the soy sauce and/or chicken stock next time but I will definitely make it again. I substituted long beans for the peas and used more pork and increased the sauce quantity. It really is worth trying this recipe.

Kalamata Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
These were very good - I used large portobello mushrooms, 2 for each person, and served them as an appetiser on a bed of stir-fried asian greens and cherry tomatoes with balsamic dressing. I added a dollop of pesto on top of each one and then scattered each with a teaspoon of pinenuts. I had enough filling for 18 large mushrooms but I added a bit more feta, red bell pepper and kalamata olives. I left all other quantities the same. Very very tasty and my guests loved them.

Soy Ginger Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
This was GOOD!!! I changed a few things to suit our tastes - used 1/2 the amount of soy and brown sugar, used the juice of one lemon and ground black pepper instead of lemon pepper, and 3 cloves of crushed garlic instead of garlic powder. After marinating the salmon overnight in a baking dish, I put the whole dish with all the marinade in the oven and baked for 20 minutes. I took the skin off at the end. Delicious!

Portobello Mushroom Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
I thought this was just OK, nothing wrong with it but nothing special. We'll definitely eat it all but I probably won't make it again.

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Really good - I did as other reviewers suggested and sauted fresh ginger and garlic in the oil before adding the broccoli and other vegetables, and also added 1 tsp dried chilli flakes to the sauce. I left out the molasses, it seemed unnecessary. Husband loved it too.

Seven Layer Dip II

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
very very good - I ate 1/2 myself and now I feel a little ill but that's the quantity, not the dip...I added a layer of pickled green chillies and also a layer of salsa, left out the green onions and olives as I didn't have any but it was still great. Added chopped red onions to the guacamole.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
I suppose it's not really fair to rate this since I changed it a bit...but I will anyway...I used all organic wholemeal flour for the first 2 1/2 cups, and regular flour for the kneading. I also cooked the crust for 5 minutes before adding the toppings. I found the crust nice and soft but a bit heavy, maybe my warm water wasn't warm enough to activate the yeast enough, or maybe the wholemeal flour was the culprit. Next time I will cook it for a bit longer than 15 minutes to try and get it crispy on the outside, but at that oven temp the cheese started to get hard and brown after 15 minutes.
