Beef and Mushroom Stroganoff, Aussie Style

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
Wow, this is really simple and tasted great! We didn't have curry power, but otherwise we stayed true to the recipe. The only thing my husband suggested was making more noodles. Can't wait to make this again with curry and more noodles. :) Thanks for sharing!

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
Hubby and I just made these, and the chops gets 4 stars. They were a bit dry even though we cooked them for 30 minutes. We added baby bella mushrooms to the chops and let them cook the entire 30 minutes. We didn't add salt at all based on other reviews and we're glad we didn't. I think I also used a little too much sage, but it was still pretty good. However, we did make gravy out of the drippings as other reviews recommended, and it was amazing. We took the chops out of the skillet after the 30 minutes, left the mushrooms in there, then added flour until it became thicker. Served with roasted potatoes that had been mixed with rosemary, onion powder, black pepper, and olive oil--absolutely amazing! Will make again, but not cook as long. :)

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This was my first attempt at making cornbread and my hubby and I were pretty satisfied. We ran out of white sugar, so I used a half white sugar/half brown sugar combo, although I did cut back on the total amount of sugar because I figured the brown sugar would make it too sweet and based on other reviews. Everything else we kept the same. Ironically, this gets 4 stars instead of 5 because we wish it had been sweeter and that the cornmeal grains had been bigger and less cake-like (maybe more like Panera/Dunkin Donuts cornbread/muffins). However, it does get 5 out of 5 stars for being super moist (we baked for 25 minutes). Really great. Will make again, but will get the right sugar and keep the recipe amount. Hopefully, it will be a 5 out of 5 star recipe after that! Thanks for sharing!

Kielbasa and Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
My husband and I just made this for dinner, and I wish I had read the reviews and reduced the amount of sugar. Super sweet, but still really good. We used 1/2 tspn of balsamic vinegar and added mushrooms in with the onions. Served with garlic mashed potatoes which was a nice balance. Will make again and will definitely reduce the amount of sugar added. Good find though. :)

Microwave Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
I had bought these 6 mini graham cracker pie crusts that I really wanted to use in an apple pie recipe, but my husband and I ended up using this recipe for the filler; what an amazingly delicious recipe this turned out to be! We did split the flour, brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon, and butter part in half (which we then mixed separately in a bowl, and would then use to coat the apple mix once we transferred it into the graham cracker crusts. We ended up nuking the initial apple mix for 6 minutes, then baked it in the mini crusts for 10 minutes at 350°F. SO GOOD. I had mine with a bit of caramel sauce, and my hubby had one mini pie with whipped cream, followed immediately by a second one with vanilla ice cream. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone! :) Thank you for sharing!

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
This was my first attempt at making a whole chicken! It turned out almost perfect, but it's really my fault that the chicken didn't turn out as well as it probably could have. I had a 5 lbs chicken in a tiny slow-cooker so it was pretty much just wedged in there. In addition to Paprika, I put Montreal Chicken Spice on it, as well as a tablespoon of butter. I also only cooked it for 8 hours (including the first hour on high). It turned out pretty well, I thought, but the top most part of the chicken was not in the juices/broth, so it was pretty dry. Otherwise, I loved how it stayed tender and the flavour was pretty good. I'll make it again, but not with such a big bird and maybe try throwing in some veggies! I think I'm more excited about the broth! :)

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
An excellent find! I had bare ingredients--one yellow onion, no herbs, no wine. I quartered the recipe and used two beef cubes with two cups of water. As I was stirring in everything, I thought it needed something a little sweeter, so I first added a tablespoon of brown sugar, followed by another tablespoon after tasting it. Then I added a chicken cube since it had become too sweet, and I must say, this hit the spot. I also only had romano cheese, but this actually tasted pretty good. I will definitely make again, and probably keep my changes!

Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
I really am amazed at how simple and delicious this was. I had my oven at 350° because I was also making a marinated baked pork chop and I didn't want to change the temp. So I put the broccoli in for 25 minutes at 350° and it turned out very tender and fantastic. I omitted adding the salt (since I figure people can always add salt if they want it) and the flavour was quite exquisite. Thanks for the recipe--will be using this one again!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Really good. I even added a little bit of vanilla extract and it was delicious! I served with raspberries and blackberries on top and everyone loved it.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Wow, this was surprisingly easy and it tasted delicious. I've never even attempted making something like this, but you really can't go wrong. I doubled the recipe for the sauce (minus doubling the extra sugar) and it was still yummy. I also forgot that I wanted to boil/simmer the sauce first to make it a little thicker when the pork chop was cooking for the first half hour and when I checked on it the sauce had run off the chop. But I simmered the second half of the sauce and it stayed pretty well on the pork chop after that. I served with roasted garlic lemon broccoli found on this site along with sarah's applesuace (also on this site). Everyone loved it and I'm making it again tomorrow. Thanks Kim. ;)

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
The only change I made was adding equal parts of brown and white sugars. The first batch oozed all over, and the edges were super sugary-tasting. I reduced the amount of pam on the cookie sheets and kept the batter in the fridge until I needed it. This helped reduce the oozing and they looked a little more cookie-shaped after. Not too bad on taste, but nothing spectacular. I may add some almond extract next time.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Eh, just okay. I followed the directions exactly and they weren't as spectacular as I hoped they would be. Oh well. Still tasted good.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
My boyfriend and I love this recipe!! We've also made it with chicken & chicken stock instead of beef + beef broth and have added some carrots for color and it's amazing! Love the ginger so much we tend to add extra. Next time we'll add some water chestnuts for extra crunch! Delicious. Absolutely amazing! Thanks!!

Made this for my family over spring break; not only was it quick and easy, but my mum finally said she had a soda bread that she liked and would eat again. Tastes great, will make again!
