    Reviewed Savoury Couscous

    Sunday, Mar 24, 2013 on
     |  64 Reviews  |  By Chef floWer
    LinMarie says:

    "My experience with most couscous dishes is that they are bland, and this one was no different. I used regular vegetable broth (not low sodium) instead of chicken stock because there were vegetarians at the table, the full 2 cloves of garlic and chopped cilantro/coriander. I suspect the onions lose some of their flavour sitting in the broth for 5 m..."

    Reviewed Latkes (Potato Pancakes)

    Sunday, Dec 9, 2012 on

    LinMarie says:

    "These are the best latkes I've ever made. The recipes I've used in the past (at least 3 others over the past 30 years) were okay, but they didn't have that perfect blend of soft potato mush in the middle and crispy outsides. This recipe has both, and good flavour. I prefer yellow-flesh (Yukon Gold) potatoes for latkes so I used those. And because ..."

    Reviewed Pumpkin Apple Cake

     |  11 Reviews  |  By Family Cook
    LinMarie says:

    "This is a delicious, moist, easy-to-make cake. My substitutions were: an equal amount of oil for butter, and for half of the flour (1 cup) I use whole wheat instead of white. I cut my peeled apples in sixths, then mixed the batter in a food processor, which cut up the apples even more. Although the apple pieces were visible in the raw batter (bet..."

    Reviewed Spinach and Potato Frittata

    LinMarie says:

    "Absolutely wonderful! Here are the modifications I've incorporated, to rave reviews. My preference is for yellow-flesh potatoes, so I use those whenever possible. Once in the skillet, sprinkle potatoes to taste with black pepper and oregano. To avoid burning, I tend to use a medium low heat and cook the potatoes until they are mostly browned on at..."

    Reviewed Lebanese Lentil/Rice Pilaf With Blackened Onions

    Wednesday, Feb 8, 2012 on

    LinMarie says:

    "For me who likes mild food, I found the dish bland. I used brown rice and found the lentils took longer to cook than the rice; about 35 minutes. Otherwise, I followed the recipe to a T. The onions were the only thing with flavour, and the dish was definitely better when eaten with the yogurt and mint. Still, I don't anticipate making this again un..."

    "What a delightful change from a mayonnaise-based pasta salad. I followed someone else's suggestion to add sundried tomatoes, and that was a perfect addition. Delicious!"

    Reviewed Braised Lamb Shanks With Fresh Rosemary

    "Excellent recipe! I made this as directed, except for a longer cooking time while waiting for our company to arrive. The meat was tasty and was so soft it fell off the bone. I suspect the choice of wine would have an impact on the taste of this dish, even with the quantity of broth used. Haven't yet tried this with anything but Shiraz."

    LinMarie says:

    "Truly wonderful muffin. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and used 50/50 whole wheat flour and white flour. These were nice and airy, even with the heavier flour. Next time I might coat my frozen berries in flour, as they "bled" all over and most of my batter was blue."

    Reviewed Vegetable Biryani

     |  7 Reviews  |  By - Carla -
    LinMarie says:

    "I omitted the cauliflower and peas; otherwise followed the instructions to a T. The flavour was in the vegetables, while the rice was bland and slightly overcooked. As a simple rice and vegetables dish, it was fine. As birynani, not really. I won't make this again."

    LinMarie says:

    "I made a double recipe (with 50% whole wheat flour and some cinnamon), and definitely preferred the second batch, the one that sat out while the first loaf was in the oven. The first batch had oatmeal that was firm/hard and bright white when cut. It was still good, but not quite as delicious as the second."
