Easy Orange Duck

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
A rare combination of easy, exciting and actually wholesome, a great way to impress any guests. Adding garlic and onion to orange seemed a bit weird at the start, but the tastes blended together marvelously. The orange and onion rings are a perfect side dish in themselves, I just added some fresh herbs for serving. Will do again!

Pineapple Orange Sorbet

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
Easy-tropical-breezy! The canned pineapple is a real time-saver and a great base, and in my case sweet enough to cut the sugar in half next time. Used half the orange juice, no zest, and lime instead of lemon. Thanks a lot for the idea.

Cheddar Cheese Nippers

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
No matter how I tried to resist the pull to use a substitution, I simply could not wait another day to make these with a pack of gruyere I had in the fridge. The recipe sounds so easy and delicious, and so it is! The making was mess-free, I used the smallest cookie cutter I had, and transferred the crackers to the parchment with a butter knife to avoid breaking them. They turned out beautifully crispy and golden (the ones rolled thinnest were the best), and the backgound wiff of cayenne pepper complimented ever so delicately to the aroma and taste. Mmmm... Will make again. And again.

Corn-Stuffed Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I made the recipe as it is, and in the end was glad that I didn't add any herbs or spice: the gentle taste is quite balanced to my opinion, corn and butter go very well together, and the tomato 'counterpoint' is more than enough. It makes a great side dish that is colourful, but won't steal the limelight from the main course.

Rosemary Rabbit

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
I've made it several times now, and it's a good recipe, classic and simple. Works with fresh or dried herbs. The only thing I adjusted was the time and temperature: I used a different baking dish. I left it to bake for 1-1/4 hour, covered for the last 30 minutes.

Orange and Onion Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I added black grapes for the colour instead of black olives (a matter of personal preference), and it looked very appetising and cheerful. The taste is tangy and intriguing.

Zesty Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
I found it delicious, and the whole family loved it. Next time I'll double the spread (may be I used too large carrots). I don't like mayo, my husband doesn't like sour cream, so I subbed the mayo with egg yolks, and it worked fine, very tender.
