Coconut-Curry Lentil Stew Served over Quinoa

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
This was fabulous. I didn't really change anything except omitting the coconut powder (didn't have any) and I used a large can of diced tomatoes. I'm pretty sure you don't need the coconut oil either, olive or canola or whatever you have on hand would probably work. My husband ate his with hot chili sauce and I had mine with fresh lime juice. A little really does go a long way- it's filling! We both loved it. Even cut to half this recipe made quite a bit; I hope it freezes well! Thanks Lindsay, this one is a keeper!

Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
A very quick and easy soup, perfect for a working couple. My husband loved it. I added more fresh lemon juice and rice as others suggested and used left over BBQ chicken from a couple nights before. We'll be making this again. Thanks!

Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
I'm a baking rookie and I followed this recipe making no changes. I think using fresh cranberries is critical. I found the cookies were kind of plain and not quite sweet enough- so I added a drizzle of sugary glaze I found at this recipe- "Old-Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies" This saved the cookies and made them very, very good. Don't add too much glaze though otherwise it'll be too sweet! Next time I'll add more pumpkin, cranberries and add pumpkin spice, maybe some nutmeg. I'd still make these again!

Sesame Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
This was just what I was looking for; a broccoli salad that didn't use mayo or Miracle Whip, etc. I didn't cook the broccoli; I mixed the ingredients the night before and left in the fridge overnight. It made a perfect light salad at work. Not outstanding- I wouldn't make it for guests or anything, but fine for just myself. I toasted the seeds quickly in my toaster oven.

Country Herbed Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
My hubby had to work on a Sunday and he called around begging me to make a meatloaf- but I don't cook! I checked around and decided to try this one. This was a great recipe! It doesn't look as easy as the others and to be honest there was quite a bit of prep- at least for a non-cook like myself. The only things I did differently was to add more garlic (4 medium cloves, we love garlic) and omit the tomato paste. I also let it bake for an hour covered (recipe doesn't specify either way- covered? uncovered?) and then 15 minutes uncovered with the mixture on top. It was moist and very very tasty! Thanks for making me look so good- and for ending my hubby's dismal Sunday on a great note!

Tuna Noodle Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
This is exactly like I thought it would be! It's tasty and a way to dress up tuna, but I had to make some substitutions and work with what I had on hand. I used cream of chicken soup and added some celery seed, and I used chopped baby carrots instead of peas- aside from that I followed the recipe. I'll make this again but I won't add the whole can of soup; maybe 3/4 , and I added a bit of milk at the end. It did seem like it needed more tuna... and I also cooked the onions/pepper/carrots in the pot for about 10 minutes to soften them a bit. It was a very good lunch on a wintery Sunday afternoon! Thanks!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
This is an excellent start for stuffed peppers; I made a few changes. I used real garlic instead of powder and like many other reviewers, used a jar of spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce and added cheese during the last 10 minutes. Both my hubby and I loved it this way- and the more garlic the better! I didn't cover while baking; I chose to bast as directed and I will continue to do it that way each time I make it. I did have to open another can of tomato sauce for basting but it was well worth it. Thanks Bonnie!

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2006
I didn't change much for this one- but I did make extra sauce which I personally think was too much. There's so much flavour that it didn't really need any more sauce, and it ended up being to much on my plate. I also added zuchini as well as some cornstarch to make it thicker. It was perfect over rice with a side of steamed veggies. :)

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2004
Wonderful! I followed the recipe pretty much to a T except I baked them instead of deep frying them, and they were absolutely worth the prep time. I might have made the patties too thin because it only took about 25 minutes at 425 in the oven. I found the cucumber sauce to be superb- I used fat free, sugar free yogurt and added a small amount of stevia to taste to make it even more fat free. I'd make this again in a heartbeat! THANKS!

Bruschetta II

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
This was a BIG crowd pleaser at a barbeque I attended. I was asked for the recipe several times! I also halved the almonds, and I hand chopped everything... it was worth it. Delicious! THANKS!

Tomato Spinach and Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2004
I actually plan on making this soup for my 'smallish' wedding. Delicious, simple and beautiful! I agree with everyone else about cooking the onions longer- just add the garlic a little later so it doesn't burn. I also used half the amount called for the butter and subbed in olive oil- and skipped the cheese to make this low fat. THANKS!
