Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
A lovely herby lentil soup, I really like the tomatoes in this one. Next time I will use more garlic, add some celery and up the seasoning some.

Glazed Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
I made this without nuts and added a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice to the batter. I had no problems with dryness as other reviewers have noted and I loved this bread.

Pollock Montreal

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I was surprised with how good this was. The pollock fillets that I used were about 3 ounces a piece so I used 4 of them and reduced the cooking time some. In order to ensure that the peppers and onions would be soft I microwaved them for a few minutes before placing them on the pollock, this was a nice spin on pollock, thank you for the recipe.

Pumpkin Brioche

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This dough was very wet but did end up fine. I really disliked the texture of these warm but once they were cool they were delicious, I doubled the cinnamon and used a touch more sugar as I was wanting a sweet bread.

West Tennessee Corn Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
I subbed plain fat-free yogurt for the mayonnaise and used a reduced amount of honey in place of the sugar. Then I added some whole corn kernels to the batter. This was by far the best corn bread I've ever eaten. I will use this recipe from now on.

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
These are very tasty little morsels, I feel that there wasn't quite enough mint flavour but very good all the same, the secret to keeping them soft and delicious is to slightly underbake them.

Maple Carrot Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I wish I could give this recipe 4-1/2 stars, the cupcake itself rates a 5, beautiful texture, moist and delicious the best carrot cake I've ever made, the frosting, however is very odd. I made it asd the recipe stated and it was a runny mess that wasnot sweet enough, I added about 3 cups of icing sugar and with the maple syrup it was a little on the sweet side so I added in nutmeg, allspice, cloves and cinnamon to tone down the sweetness. These were a big hit at my mom's Thanksgiving Dinner.

Caramel Frosting I

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
This was so good, I used it to top brown sugar brownie, I was a little heavy on the butter and I subbed 2 tbsp sour cream and 1 tbsp french vanilla coffee creamer for the milk (I was out) and it became a beautiful spreading consistancy that did not harden as many have had trouble with.

Citrus Pepper Quinoa

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
What a great pilaff! I did make a few small alterations, I subbed chicken stock for the vegetable stock (didn't have any), and doubled the garlic and lemon pepper as I like strong flavours. My husband didn't like the orange zest but what does he know? Thanks for this recipe CC.

Mango-Mint Lassi with Indian Sweet Spices

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I adored this, I like my drinks to be on the tart side so I omitted the sugar completely and I also used frozen mango. I will make this frequently, I may even freeze some garden mint to make this over the winter.

Minty Beet Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I boiled my beets then shocked them in cold water and peeled them, I didn't have tarragon vinager so I used white vinager and added some chopped fresh tarragon. This is delicious and I will make it frequently.

Curried Lamb

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I found this to be a little on the mild side, I was hoping for more flavour from the amount of spices, the meat, however, was tender and delicious, I will make this again with some tweaking of the spices.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I was amazed at how well this worked. I will always make my own lemon curd from now on, this recipe is so simple and turns out wonderful and extremely lemony.

Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I adjusted the liquids ratio and cooking time to use brown rice, subbed chicken stock for water, added some garlic and sauteed my onion, garlic and ginger in a bit of oil before adding the liquids and rice. I also toasted some coconut and chopped cashews that I mixed into the rice right before serving. I topped each serving with chopped cilantro. With my modifications this recipe gets five stars, I'll make it often, my husband ate three helpings of it and all three of my 2 year olds enjoyed it.

Nutty Coconut Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I used cornflakes in place of the bread crumbs and as I used sweetened flaked coconut I omitted the sugar, I also dredged my fish in flour before I dipped it in the mayonaisse mixture. Everyone loved it.
