Mushroom Curry with Galangal

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
OMG!!!! Can I begin to tell you how amazing this is! The only thing I changed was that I added boneless diced pork at the five minute mark of the ten minute simmer with the kaffir lime leaves (i.e., five minutes coconut milk and lime; the next five minutes, add the pork). I only did this to make it a little heartier but TRUST ME even as written this is an amazing dish with an incredible balance. Do, do, DO try to get galangal and not ginger. So many people treat them as interchangeable but trust me, they're not. You will know the difference because galangal is smoother on the surface and has almost "tiger stripes" on it (google a picture of it, you'll see what I mean). And YES, if you can find them, spring for the bag of kaffir lime leaves. They keep forever in the freezer and are well worth the investment for the difference they make in flavour to using just lime juice. I served it over jasmine rice and my life changed for the better, forever. Thanks for the great recipe Wiley!

Moroccan Chicken Sann

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I think that perhaps the few who said this lacked flavour might have been using old spices that had lost their punch. This turned out beautifully for me, love the kick from the acid from the lemon especially. I used chicken legs, might try skinless thighs and/or drums next time to cut down on the fat.

Taiwanese Sesame Oil Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I made this as directed with drumsticks (used soba noodles instead of the thin somen, sorry Tina!) except once the chicken was done I added a couple of red peppers (large dice) just so it could be an all in one dish and have some veggies in there. I also added a good glug of sambal olek to finish it, just 'cos I like it spicy :) Upon tasting it seemed to be missing something...so I tipped in a bit of oyster sauce and BINGO! Took it over the top and gave it some nice added depth. I'll be taking this for my lunches at work this week and am planning on sprinkling some chopped green onions on top of each serving (i.e., not cooking them in). Thanks!

Healthy Turkey Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Oh wow!!! I had high hopes for this and wasn't disappointed one bit. I couldn't find ground turkey at the grocery store (huh??) so instead I bought turkey sausages and crumbled them up after removing from the casings. The additional spicing of the sausages put this OVER THE TOP yummo! I too doubled everything except the egg, and just before popping in the oven I put another lick of salsa on top.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
I have made this recipe several times and love it both for its versatility as well as its speediness. I tend to substitute sliced black olives for the additional salt on top, but I have also been known to make it with sundried tomatoes instead. You can switch up the herbs, too. Rosemary is terrific with the black olives but when I use the sun drieds fresh basil is amazing :)
