Re:Steam-Roasted Indian-Spiced Cauliflower

This recipe is yummy. I've simplified it a lot without losing the flavor. Instead of foil, I cover the cookie sheet with a similar sized sheet. Less garbage and easier to handle than hot foil. I toss all the spices into the oil and toast/cook until fragrant then swirl in the lemon juice. I use whole cumin seeds and ground coriander. I don't fuss with the spice grinder. When the cauliflower is roasted, I mix in the spices. This recipe is a keeper

Re:Sautéed Ratatouille

I kept wondering what I was missing when it came to ratatouille. I always found it bland & boring - I wanted to like it because the ingredients are so healthy. And, then, I found this recipe. Wow. It's amazing. To speed things up, I sweated all the veggies first, and then browned them. The flavour is still fabulous. I'm planning to serve this on the weekend, so will add the fresh herbs at the last minute. I suspect it will freeze well, provided the herbs at ended at the end.

Re:Flourless Chocolate & Vanilla Marble Cake

An amazing recipe. I'm a cook, but not a baker. I always hesitate to bake something and usually ask someone else to bring dessert. But will make this recipe again and again and again. It's fool proof - even for non-bakers. Initially, I was nervous that I didn't get the cool pattern as shown in the picture. I had to dig deep to get the fun presentation. I made it the week before the party and froze it as per the directions provided. It was perfect. Served it with ice cream and fresh fruit.

Re:Flounder Poached in Coconut, Ginger & Basil Broth

This recipe is spectacular and is so versatile. It should be a 6 star. I used halibut and prawns instead of flounder. (Don't think we have flounder on the west coast). Had some bok choy that I tossed in at the end. Yum, yum, yum. Next time, I would toss in more veggies. The sauce is divine. Definitely a 'company' dish.

Re:Baked Ziti with Tomato, Mozzarella & Sausage

This is my go-to recipe for comfort food. I have been making it for years. It's easy and so tasty. To the sauce, I now add bulgur (1/3c) and a bunch of kale chopped up. I usually use extra lean ground beef instead of sausage. I also use whole wheat penne, and low fat ricotta. I usually add extra chili flakes because we like the spice. I haven't tried making it with soy based 'ground beef' but, I bet it would still be great.

Re:Bourbon-Orange-Glazed Ham

This is a great glaze that I tweaked a wee bit. I added 6-8 cloves and 2 tbsp orange peel. I found it a bit runny, so brought the glaze to a boil and reduced it by half. The flavours became more concentrated and it clung to the ham a bit better.

Re:Creamy Potato Salad with Radishes, Lemon & Dill

I've made this recipe numerous times and it is always a hit with family and friends. I find that there's enough dressing for 1 and 1/2 times the dry ingredients.This is my favourite potato salad recipe.
