Reviewed Peaches with Balsamic Cherries
"This is the second time I've made this, although I use nectarines because they are more readily available where I live. I ate it with ice cream today, and it was a nice combination. On its own, particularly when warm, I find a miss a crust of some sort."
Reviewed Microwave Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal
"This one is kind of bland. I was hoping for delicious from the reviews, but it's edible. I doubled the cinnamon and almost doubled the maple syrup, and still didn't find that it had much flavour. I did use a Granny Smith apple, though, so maybe the sweetness that's missing is from not using a Mac. It was notably better after adding a little milk a""
Reviewed Melissa's Brussels Sprouts
"Just made these again and it's worth mentioning that they are equally good if not slightly more flavourful with beef broth instead of chicken broth.""
Reviewed Melissa's Brussels Sprouts
"These are great! Increase the proportion of sprouts to the rest though. I used 15 small ones and I should have used more. Just add a little more broth near the end. To increase the bacon-y flavour, I rendered the fat and then set aside the bacon before melting the butter in the same skillet.""
"I made this for dinner tonight using "limanda" (which I THINK is flounder in Spanish. Fish translations are tricky!), and it got a 9 of 10. I had to use dried herbs for the dredge. Next time I'll use less, but the fish had a really nice flavor. The last piece I cooked about 3.5-4 minutes on each side, and I'll do it that way next time. The salad ""
Reviewed Coconut Flan
"I made this for a coconut-loving friend's birthday. I followed the recipe, but I only had dried coconut, so I found a substitute online. The result was good even to me, and I don't like flan OR coconut AT ALL! This was a little sweet though, even without the coconut milk. I can't imagine how sweet it would have been with both the condensed and coconut milks!! The birthday girl ADORED it though, and she ate most of the recipe in two sittings. Success it was."
Reviewed Bobby's Baked Tilapia
"I like that the lime doesn't really mask the taste of the fish. My partner had never tried tilapia, and I wanted her to serve it to her not just plain but not really herby or strong-flavoured. This dish is nice and light (although I'd probably use less than a pat of butter per fillet next time), but I don't love the limey flavour. She said it had a hint of bitterness. Although as week speak she's polishing it off, so I suppose it wasn't too big a problem."
Reviewed Black Beans in a Pressure Cooker
"It is OHMYGOD delicious. Seriously, I could make this every week and never get tired of it. I DID sub a bit of broth for the water this time (it's the 2nd) as another reviewer suggests, and I do make a sofrito before I had the ham, then take it out and brown the ham a bit, then put the sofrito back in to cook like the recipe suggests. I cannot stop raving about these beans. Skeptical partner gave the flavour 10/10. Side note--this makes quite a lot for two people. I made a version of Sandra Lee's Round 2 Black Bean Enchilada (FN recipe with some pureed leftovers and the enchiladas were downright yummy too. Enough that reviewing these recipes is making my mouth water!
