Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
Very good brownies. I left out the walnuts as my kids don't like them, and mixed the chocolate into the mix instead of sprinkling on top. Also put 100's and 1000's sprinkles on 1/2 before baking, the kids love them. Really easy to make too.

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.

Pork, Cashew, and Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2006
This was great - quick, easy, tasty and healthy. I made 1/2 the amount and added a handful of bean sprouts with the beans. We had it on its own, didn't need the rice.

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.

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
Made this for a BBQ and it was really good. I took advice from lots of other reviewers - used pears instead of orange, added dried cranberries, used Danish blue cheese as couldn't find gorgonzola and used lots more than the recipe suggested, used pecans instead of walnuts, added garlic to the dressing and halved the dressing quantity, leaving the sugar out altogether.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: May 29, 2006
I substituted ground cloves for whole, and ground cinnamon for crushed cinnamon sticks. When it was done, it didn't really look like dinner...so I cooked 6 bratwurst sausages, sliced them and added them, along with 2 heads of chopped broccoli, and then simmered, covered, for another 20 minutes - it was a delicious all-in-one meal. Oh, I also drained and rinsed the chickpeas first, and used water instead of the liquid from the can - it is full of salt and preservatives.

Chicken with Lemon Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
Cooked this for a pretty fussy crowd including tweens and teens and all loved it (including me). Used white wine instead of apple juice, and didn't add butter into the sauce but all else per recipe. Excellent.

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.

Marshmallow Crispie Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2006
So easy and so good (according to my husband and kids anyway - they're not really my scene so I didn't try them). I did as others suggested and added an extra 1/2 cup of rice krispies and they were perfect. Thanks for the tip on using a wet spoon to press it into the pan, it worked well.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
My husband absolutely loved these so I had to give 5 stars - I quite liked them but would only have given a 4. I followed the recipe except omitted the salt, used a whole red pepper, and added dash of cumin and cayenne. There was enough filling for 4 burritos. A bit too much cream cheese for me - I'll cut down next time. But great recipe.

Mom's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Very quick and easy. Made a few changes - used a round 8 inch cake tin and had to bake for 1hr 10min, and used 1/2 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup Tia Maria in place of coffee. It rose well, was moist and tasted great. Next time I'll split it and fill it with raspberries and cream but this time I didn't ice it, it great as it was.

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
Fantastic - loved it. My husband licked the bowl (I'm not joking!). Followed the recipe almost exactly, only used a bit less mustard per other reviewers' advice.

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Couldn't stop eating these! Very very good. Take note of the recipe guideline about spacing the cookies apart enough - I didn't do this with the first batch and they spread and stuck together.

Lentil Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
Delicious - I added garlic and used an extra teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Cooked the onion and garlic in with the lentils and then mixed everything else in when they were done. Also used a few different types of cheeses that I had in the fridge.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
Excellent excellent chicken! Will make this again and again. So easy, so moist, so tasty. Made to recipe except halved salt and didn't have any onion salt. Also guests were late so cooked for almost 6 hours instead of 5 - didn't seem to matter.

Grilled Spicy Lamb Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
These were fantastic - I followed the recipe exactly. My husband thought they were too "lamb-y" and he grew up on a sheep farm so that's saying something, but they were great for me. Definitely a strong lamb taste so if you're not into lamb, give these a miss or use different meat.
