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!

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!

Tofu and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I made a few additions as the mixture needed more flavour - used more garlic, added a handful of fresh shredded basil, chili flakes and 1/2 cup white wine to the tofu mixture while it was simmering. I mixed the rice, tofu mix and marinara sauce together and then put it into the peppers, and topped with cheese. There was lots of filling, probably twice as much as I needed - maybe my peppers were too small. Made a great vegetable side dish that I served with baked salmon fillets.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
Based on other reviews I cut the butter down to 3/4 cup and it was plenty. Next time I would increase the amount of chocolate and use a bigger tin - I found the base was too thick. Great taste though.

Imitation Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2006
This was REALLY good, moist and tasty. I used fresh breadcrumbs instead of dried (4 slices wholemeal bread), green lentils instead of brown, left out the wheatgerm, added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 1 shredded carrot and 2 sticks chopped celery. Also I topped it with BBQ sauce before cooking, and cooked for 1 1/2 hours. My 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.

1-Pot, 3-Bean Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
A really good, tasty, easy recipe. I didn't have parsley and used spicy italian sausages instead of smoked chicken, also used a chicken stock cube and more wine instead of a can of chicken broth. Oh, and it made a lot so my pot was too small, I had to transfer it all to a large casserole dish and bake it (covered) for an hour.

Quinoa Chard Pilaf

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
This was pretty good but a little bit bland - I added 1 tsp each of dried basil and oregano, omitted the mushrooms, used a packet of frozen spinach instead of the chard, and added 1 pound of wood roasted salmon - great complete meal for dinner.

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!

Tofu with Pork and Cashews

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
I only used 1 tbsp of soy sauce as I thought it would be too salty, and added a bunch of chopped, lightly steamed green beans in with the tofu. We really enjoyed it and it was very quick to prepare after work.

Chocolate Mousse I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
Very good - I used Tia Maria as the alcohol, and 72% dark chocolate. It took quite awhile to blend the egg yolk/chocolate mixture with the egg white, and there were a few little lumps of chocolate left, but it tasted great. I served it in glasses with a side serve of vanilla bean ice cream to cut through the richness - guests loved it.

Chickpeas in Tomato Sauce With Feta and Wine

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
Wow, this is delicious! I followed the recipe except for not draining the tomatoes, then poured the whole lot over some chicken breasts and baked them for about 1/2 hour - really really good.

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.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
I needed a quick side dish and had very little in the house, so made this without the sausage. Used olive oil instead of butter and fresh basil instead of dried. It was quite good, I'll definitely make it again with the sausage next time.

White Chocolate Gorp

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
Had put off making this as it sounded a bit time consuming, but just tried it and it's super quick and easy. Only made 1/2 the quantity and used small chocolate-coated honeycomb nuggets instead of the mini-candy coated chocolate pieces - a bit of a mistake as the chocolate on the outside melted into the white chocolate when I mixed it in. However it still tasted great! Also left out the toasted oat cereal and don't think I would have had enough chocolate to coat everything if I'd used it. My husband and guests absolutely loved this, will definitely be making it regularly.

Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2006
I made this for a tex-mex dinner party and it was delicious. Only had 1 avocado so added 2 small diced tomatoes, and also added a can of black beans. Didn't have fresh oregano so just used a sprinkle of dried oregano. Also used frozen corn as didn't have fresh. Really enjoyed this dish, thanks!

Hot and Sour Soup with Bean Sprouts

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
This was just OK - it needed more vinegar and more chile pepper - not very hot or very sour.

I think this would do better with more cumin and but it was still a great hit at a barbecue.

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
Instead of grilling, I put everything including the marinade into a frying pan, added 1/2 cup white wine, and cooked on the stove top. Served it over quinoa - delicious.
