Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: May 1, 2003
Not bad! Though I had made several substitutions with what I had around the kitchen (replaced the rice wine with Cinzano, added red peppers, onions, and julienned carrots, and doubled the ginger.) Served over rice it's a great meal!

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2005
This was just fabulous, and very quick! I marinated jumbo shrimp overnight, and then used the leftover marinade, diluted with a bit of water, to grill some vegetables with. I broiled them in the oven and it literally took 4 minutes to cook. Literally. Was a huge hit with the boyfriend, too.

Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
I doubled the recipe and served this at a wine tasting party- instant hit! I couldn't find gorgonzola in my area, so I replaced it with a Bresse blue cheese, and it still worked quite well. Our guests LOVED this and went through it in no time!

Paella

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
Stellar, and so easy to prepare! We scaled the recipe to 4 servings, as I can't think of a wok big enough to make 10. I added spiciness by using only spicy sausage. I also added a splash more chicken broth when simmering with the sausage. The shrimp adds more moisture, so the rice cooked up perfectly. My guy said this tasted better than any he's ever had before (and that's saying a lot!)

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
This is pretty good! I followed the reviewers' suggestions of doubling the marinade and using brown sugar instead of white, and it worked great! Had enough marinade to make a big vegetable stir fry with as well. A tad sweet, but definitely good!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
I made several changes to this recipe. However, I'd like to thank the author for posting a great base recipe! This was really delicious. We cut down the salt to 1/2 tsp in the yogurt marinade, and added a tsp. of curry powder. Didn't have fresh ginger on hand so we used ginger powder. Also omitted the lemon juice. Instead of tomato sauce, we went for simple crushed tomatoes in a can, and I added some long beans and eggplant cubes to the simmering sauce. You have to try this recipe, it's now a favourite in this household!

Nutty Goat Cheese Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
This was all right, simple, and it tasted great, but it's not going to impress guests. But I think it makes a great healthful snack served with whole wheat baguette. Would make it again when in a pinch.

African Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
This is yummy! 4 stars for the flavour from a very simple and fast dish to create. It's always been a hit, even among those who aren't into ethnic foods much.

Buttermilk Pancakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
Amazing, fluffy, light pancakes that are SO easy to make. We followed the recipe exactly, and mix the dry ingredients in advance, so that we just pull out a container of the dry, mix with the liquids in a blender, and stir in fresh blueberries. HUGE rave from me- these never stick around for long at the brunch table!

4H Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2005
Wow, this one might have replaced my standby banana bread recipe! I followed everyone's recommendation of using 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar, and doubled the recipe to make 2 smaller loaves in aluminum tin pans. Added chopped pecans and chocolate chips, and baked the 2 loaves for a good 70 minutes and another 10 minutes at 325 to ensure the inside wasn't pudding. Delicious!! I've been in a friendly competition with my boyfriend's mom for his preferred banana bread, and this one won. lol

Easy Greek Skillet Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
Meh, it was good, edible, and all that, but it wasn't anything *special*. The only change I made was using whole wheat elbow pasta. It's a good basic meal, and I'm sure kids would love it, and it's great for when you don't have much going on in the pantry and want something quick and hearty.

Rosemary and Peppercorn Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
I thought this was a pretty great recipe, after I had made some of the suggested modifications. My significant other is lactose intolerant, and so I had to cut back on the dairy ingredients used here. I added an extra clove of garlic, and like another reviewer suggested, replaced the cream and half the butter with chicken broth, a tsp. of corn starch to thicken, and lactose-free skim milk. I'd recommend increasing the rosemary to one tbsp., and to definitely decrease the amount of peppercorns by at least half. We only had black peppercorns on hand, so used those. But all in all, we truly enjoyed how fast this came together and how great it tasted! :-D

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
I followed the recipe to a T, and this turned out quite well. The mister loved it. We never had spaghetti squash before and had a heck of a time just splitting it in half. (If you're wondering, what we did was take a heavy chef's knife and used a mallet to penetrate the thick rind.) I don't know if the squash was cooked to perfection, either. Ours was still a bit on the crunchy side. But overall, I'd make this again. :-)

Japanese-Style Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
We love this recipe at my house! Easy to make and very tasty and healthy. A perfect side to salmon glazed with a little hoisin sauce.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Not bad at all, and super fudgey! These make rather small brownies, like the 2-bite variety, but they're great- my fiancee ate a few and just loved them. I took someone's suggestion and added a half cup of chocolate chips to make them gooey, and that worked out great. Would definitely make them again, although will probably double or even triple the recipe to share with others at a party.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
Excellent recipe for tilapia in a pinch! I had to make several substitutions because I didn't have certain things on hand. Replaced onion salt with garlic powder, dried basil with an herbes de provence mix, and it still turned out great! The next time, I'll try it true to the original and see how it goes. It was moist and delicious! :-)

Roasted Rosemary Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
Great way to cook cauliflower! My fiance enjoyed it immensely. 1/2 a cauliflower head was enough for us two adults. I also had some leftover bread crumb and garlic mix from a rack of lamb I made the night before, and haphazardly tossed on top. It was delicious, nice and crunchy. we're making more tonight!
