Tomato Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
Quick, easy and delicious. I'll probably make twice the sauce next time, and save the half that I don't use on the chicken for rice - it's really tasty!

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2003
The mix of beans, chicken, corn, and salsa was great -- super-tasty and easy to make... although I still haven't decided if I like it over cold lettuce, it's certainly worth making again -- with or without the salad greens.

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2003
I didn't measure anything, and I'm sure my proportions were way off... but in spirit, it was still the same salad. Very simple, quick, and extremely tasty!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2003
Very good, proportions are right, and there are no surprises - tastes just as a lasagna should. You should note, however, that the prep time can be a bit longer than 30 mins...

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2003
Pretty bland and tasteless. I doubled the amount of (most of) the spices, as was recommended, and I wasn't very impressed.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2003
Amazing! The two whole onions may look like a lot, but when everything is added, you can't even notice them. Also, when crushing the cinamon sticks, I recommend you crush them *really* well - the pieces don't soften very much, so the smaller, the better.

Chicken Salad Al La Barbara

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2003
Mmmm... even better than I was expecting. This really is a great dish to have on a hot day! Don't skimp out on any of the fruit, because they work well together and nothing tastes out of place.

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2003
Simple, quick, and tasty. Nothing overly 'special', but it'll definitely become my standard fajita marinade. Also, I used red wine vinegar, and it tasted fine.

Vegan Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2003
The soup was great - I divided it up and froze it for take-to-work suppers. The amount of chili powder was not too much (in my opinion), but of course, it's all a matter of taste. It's very, very quick to make, and I'll certainly use this one again - making only one change: adding some rice to thicken it up.

Caramelized-Onion, Spinach, and Bacon Quiche

Reviewed: May 30, 2003
Excellent quiche, and really easy to make. Be sure not to skimp out on any of the onions - the flavour is wonderful! The pizza crust, while unbeatable for efficiency, doesn't really have the right consistency or texture for a quiche crust. If you have the time, use another recipe for the crust. If not, it's really not all that terrible. It's my only complaint!

Easiest Teriyaki Marinade Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
As with most of the other reviewers, I substitued the cinnamon for ginger. With that chance, it was fantastic - I used it for salmon, and dumped the rest over my rice. It works on anything!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
I only used half the onions, two-thirds of the beans, and no vinegar -- not because I chose to, but because that's all I had -- and it still turned out wonderfully! It's very colourful, tasty, and works just great as a snack or part of a meal, as far as I'm concerned. Best of all, it takes almost no time at all to make.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
Pretty good sauce, especially after a few days in the fridge. I made it as is, although I can see why a few suggested adding sugar - it all depends on your taste, however. While not the very best sauce I've ever had, it's worth making, even if you're short of time - it's pretty quick, which is always nice!

Beef Samosas

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2003
This is the only Samosa recipe I've ever tried, and I wouldn't hesitate to use it again. One worthy note is that I used ground chicken, instead of beef, and no one noticed the difference. I also used egg roll wrappers (right next to the philo dough at the grocery store) to wrap the samosas, and then baked them at 350-ish until they were browned and crispy. They take a good while to make, but not very long to eat... they're really, really good!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2002
I added cayenne pepper and chili powder, and didn't use any cream cheese -- instead, I topped the burritos with fat-free sour cream and salsa. Delicious!

Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
Well, with 200 reviews, I don't suppose one more could hurt. Let me tell you this, first of all. I really don't like beer, and I did a double take when I saw that a whole can of dark beer was to be put in here. Anyhow, I sucked up my inhibitions and followed this recipe to the last little detail, and let me tell you, it was worth EVERY shred of effort. It's fantastic! The taste isn't exactly like any chili I've had before, but it is a wonderful surprise. For those of you who like a little spice, I would actually recommend adding a few *more* peppers - that, or the ones I used weren't that potent. Regardless, try this recipe out, now! Oh yeah, and I made it with ground chicken instead. No problems there! (Added note: I tried it later with beef, exactly as specified, for a party, and I had many requests for the recipe!)
