Orange Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This was really good, while it was cooking everyone kept commenting on how good it smelled. It wasn't strong enough to overpower any other dishes, but held up well on its own too. If you, like me, are unable to find fresh cilantro (most of the stores here don't want to carry it, it seems) then you can find dried cilantro and use extra, letting it sit in there a little longer so it doesn't taste as dry. This also was a little tough. Cover it while simmering so that the rice gets softer than it would otherwise.

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
These were so very delicious. One of my guests that I fed claimed to have never liked cooked carrots until this particular dish. I used the frozen tubes of dill instead of fresh cut dill. It tastes the same, but is easier and faster to use.

Bourbon Pecan Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This was so good. I did as a lot of people said and used less soy sauce, etc. I also added a little more brown sugar to the sauce and cut back on the butter. I had purchased "light" butter and it really did come out delicious still. This is a keeper, absolutely.

Spice Cookies with Crystallized Ginger

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
These are really delicious. I added a little extra sugar and changed some things around. Like using baking powder instead of soda, using a little brown and cutting the corn syrup in half. Adding a little yolk, and later an itsy bit of milk. I added more of each spice plus nutmeg too-- I like mine full of flavour. The reason for most of this was because I like a fluffier cookie, so mine were a tad different... I'm sure the crunchy cookie is absolutely to-die-for as well! Like another reviewer, I left the powdered sugar off.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
We found this delicious. I tripled the sauce and added ginger and just a dash of ground gloves. Also put it in the oven like other reviewers. I served this with greenbeans and herb stuffing with cranberries and toasted walnuts mixed in.

Graham Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
These are good. My boyfriend liked them more than I did, but I really liked them! I had to use walnuts cause I had run out of pecans the night before. I also toasted them before adding them in. I also added cinnamon and ginger, and a touch of nutmeg. A really nice thing about them is that, unlike most waffles and pancakes, they're not completely filling-- so you can eat more of what you make. :) Always a bonus.

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
I adore this! I added more cayenne pepper and cinnamon cause I like them a lot. Next time I might do more changes just to... change it up. It makes less than I thought? I imagined it to make a lot more. Like another reviewer, I added a little extra stock... it seemed like the broth to vegetable ratio was a little wacky to my taste. Still! Delicious!!

Angel Hair Pasta with Pignoli

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2006
While tasty, this seemed a little bland for such a huge amount of calories (jeez!). Used way less pasta and sauce for two people... Added spinach and chicken for the boyfriend.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Good, just as everyone said. I doubled the sauce, but left out some vinegar. I used half of the white wine vinegar and half balsamic. It gave it a nice tangy flavour, too! My porkchops took longer to cook, but they were also really thick. Should've pounded 'em down.

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
This is a delicious, hearty soup. I even made the black bread to go with it, per suggestion-- it does go good together! Fills you up fast, so the six servings suggested has last me for forever!

Pumpkin Curry Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
I. Love. It. I'm a real soup nut anyway, but god this was good. After making it as directed, every time I'd reheat it to have a bowl I'd add something to try it. More curry, perhaps? Or some golden raisens. Some corn? It was delicious all the ways, this flavour just goes with everything!

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Absolutely amazing. Everyone I made this for raved about it and continue to rave about it. Nice and rich, God it was delicious! I served it with green beans and garlicy parmesian mashed potatoes. Mmm!

French Herb Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
This was the second ever bread I made and I thought it turned out perfectly, deliciously. It practically made itself.

Spicy Potatoes and Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
These were okay. I expected the potatoes to be spicier... my boyfriend really liked it though!

Moroccan Chicken with Polenta

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
This was really good, everyone I made it for devoured it. It took me forever to find polenta, I was on the verge of just making some before I found it, and it wasn't wild mushroom, unfortunately. I added mushrooms to make up for it... I also added some vegetables, mimicing the round shape of the polenta. Like Zuchinni. Turned out really well!

Cardamom Chicken with Salt and Pepper Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
This had a nice crispy exterior. It was really good! I liked the flavour, you'd think it'd be bland but the marinade gives it tons of flavour.

Fig and Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Okay. My chicken turned out a little tough, but I porbably overcooked it. The sauce was a little tart? I also left the peels on the lemons and agree with another reviewer-- I think they'd have been better without the peel. Even though I really like lemon peel. Served this with couscous. I didn't not like it, I thought it was good, but it wasn't the best dish I've made from here.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
My bacon turned out weird-- but I'm also really picky about how cooked my bacon is. Overall the flavours were good, I just think next time I'll cook the bacon seperately and lay on top like some other people have done to make it easier.

Almond Crusted Chicken with Tomato Citrus Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
This was pretty good! I liked it, though there was a sort of curious flavour to it. I think I'll chop my herbs a little more next time, maybe diminish on a few of them.

Egyptian Rose Leaves

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Sooo yummy. I love these, being a huge fan of the 'rose' flavour. I did half of them the way as directed, the other half with cherry cordial filled Hershey Kisses-- both sets turned out really well! Mmm. They don't freeze and keep as well as some other cookies, but they're still yummy after time. They just loose their flavour and texture somewhat.
