All Pumpkins' Night Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
I wasn't sure how the ingredients would work together, but this turned out to be delicious squared. Don't skimp or substitute on the spices that are called for, as they make all the difference. I added in a sweet potato because I didn't have enough regular potato and I only used as much broth as was necessary to cover the ingredients.

Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I love this soup! For those that said you couldn't taste the apple I wonder which type of apples were used? I usually opt for tart green apples and find the flavour to be just present, but not overpowering. I use slightly less broth (4 cups) to avoid having an overly watery soup and I always leave out the cream entirely - the soup is so yummy, there's simply no need for it. I've made this soup a few times now, and the only changes I made aside from those mentioned above is adding three small-medium carrots, if they're on hand, and putting goat cheese on top before eating.

Asian Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
I really enjoyed this recipe. I took some serious liberties with it and my salmon still turned out really well. I used a frozen salmon, didn't marinate it and left out the dill and sesame oil because I didn't have any. I also some how forgot about the water and used red finely diced red onion. Regardless, the salmon was still delicious.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
Really yummy and forgiving recipe. I've made this several times and it's always delicious. I don't use the pepper. I also cut way back on the salt and olive oil. I would suggest starting out with a little of each and working your way up to what's called for based on taste and preference. If you're using less than 4 tomatoes, the measurements called for throw things off. Lemon works as a nice substitue for the lime juice and if you have neither, the salsa doesn't suffer. Same goes for the cilantro!

Sweet Potato Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
I love this recipe and use it all the time. I think the secret is playing around to hit a mix that you suits your preferences. I tend to use an equal amount of each potato and add mustard to taste instead of sticking with the tbsp called for. I also like to add some dill or green onion and paprika. Happy eating!

Beer and Maple Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
Super duper fantastic. Giving it a 5 star rating because the recipe is nice on it's own, but it's easy to play around with, which makes it a real winner. I use canned lentils, and I added a 1/4 cup, or so, of dried red lentil to deal with the soupy-ness some other reviewers have mentioned. The dried lentils help thicken it up and give it a nice taste while boiling. I also use veggie broth instead of beef (personal pref).

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Pretty delicious! My only reservation is the salt - it was definitely over the top for me. Next time, in addition to cutting down the broth from 8 to 5 cups, I'll be sub-ing in some water for part of it. Also, I left out the cream - there's no need for it. Honest!

Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Really, really delicious! I made a few tweaks, based on what I had handy, but overall I stayed true to the recipe and was very pleased with the final result. I used a large red onion as a sub for the two whites, used one cup of veg broth and one cup of water instead of two cups of water, cut out the salt (because of the broth) and dumped fresh spinach on top of everything during the last 5 minutes.

Awesome Honey Pecan Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I really enjoy this recipe, although I think that giving it a five star rating is somewhat iffy, given that I've never made the recipe as is. Based on other reviews I always add anywhere from 1/4-1/2 cup of (veg) broth as well as some soya sauce, and white wine or cooking sherry. Another addition I make, that I don't think I've seen here is adding apples. I usually chop them up and heat them through with the honey and pecans. Once everything has been cooked and mixed together, I use the oven to finish the dish off.

Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Success! I followed the general consensus and subsituted two cups of chicken broth and an extra can of coconut milk in for the water. I used spinach instead of bok choy and added mushrooms, peppers and bamboo shoots. I also added some lime leaves, which need to be fished out at the end the same as bay leaves. Overall it was very good. The recipe is very forgiving and leaves the door open for personal tweaking. I only had a tspn of red pepper, but will definitely try more next time. It wasn't spicey enough for my liking. A note on the lemon grass - I only had one shoot which resulted in four 1-1 1/2 inch pieces and that was more than enough for flavour once they were scored. Will definitely try again.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
For my first time, I'd say they turned out really well - chewy in the middle as promised. The recipe was easy to follow and open to adjustments since I was a little off on some of my measurements and cut out the nuts. With that said, I have to agree with a previous poster: there's a little something missing on the flavour front though I haven't done enough baking to say what. Number wise I ended up with roughly 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Zucchini Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2007
If there was a 1/2 option I'd give it in addition to the 3. The recipe made a really yummy soup but it wasn't anything extraordinary. I used a can of chiken broth in place of the water and bouillon cubes. I also left out the wine because I didn't have any. This is definitely something I would try again, it has great playing around potential.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
As someone who hasn't done much cooking, I found this recipe relatively easy to follow. Overall, I'd say everything turned out well but I didn't find the taste to be as rave worthy as most of the previous posters. It was good, but not anything I was wowed by, though my parents liked it very much. The recipes lends itself well to tweaking, for personal tastes so I might try it again and play around some more. I used a full cup of coconut milk and subsituted the yogurt for sour cream. I DID note that you don't need all the lemon juice that's called for. I'd probably cut it down next time.

Mustard Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
The vinegar was a little overwhelming. I played around with the recipe to make it more to my liking. I added extra honey, a bit of soya sauce and I used olive oil.

Vietnamese Style Vegetarian Curry Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
I either read the wrong recipe or the other reviewers and I have extremely opposite tastes. There are so many problems with the soup I'm not sure where to start but the most obvious seems to be with the amount of curry powder. Even with the water, broth and coconut milk the stock just tastes chalky and the coconut flavour is entirely lost. If I make this again it will involve some major changes.

Spicy Honey-Mustard Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This wasn't nearly as good as the other reviews implied.. The sesame oil is too strong and over powers the other ingredients (as noted in a previous post). I'd cut it way back. I also up the mustard, soya sauce and honey. It definitely has potential and I may paly around with it in the future.. I'd suggest you do the same while making the sauce!

Curry-Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This recipe was a total disappointment. I followed the directions exactly but it came out much too sweet and very bland. I had to had a tbsp of green thai curry paste to salvage things. Bust.

Hearty Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
Really, really disappointing. The recipe yielded nothing more than bland mush. I'm going to try and salvage things with some broth, but I'm not optimistic.
