It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
This is my favourite chili recipe ever. Instead of tomato juice, I substitute a 28oz can of tomatoes as many reviewers suggested. We make this in big batches in our slow-cooker and freeze for easy reheats on busy nights.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Fantastic recipe. I don't add any sugar to the salsa, and I tend to add a more tart preserve, and it disappears. It really is addictive!!

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Love love love this. The only modification I make is to use a combination of balsamic and red wine vinegar. Staple in my house now.

Savory Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Really liked this combination of ingredients. We typically do goil potatoes and onions with olive oil and lemon juice, but this is our new favourite. Yum!

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
So simple and so yummy. This is a keeper. I had a mix of yellow and green beans from the farmer's market on hand, and they turned out beautifully.

Freezer Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
So simple and so yummy! When tomatoes are in season, I buy baskets and make as many batches of this that I can fit in my freezer. I always peel and seed the tomatoes, which is the only fiddly part of this recipe. I usually add fresh yellow and green beans as well as zucchini to the base recipe, then add frozen peas and/or corn with the potato when I'm ready to serve it. Great with added cooked chicken too! Love love love this one.

Fisherman Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Thought this was delicious. I would definitely more finely chop the almonds next time, because they seemed a bit hard. Since I had also added 1/2 cup raw rice, I kept thinking I was eating raw rice when I got to the almonds. I added a sprinkle or two of Cajun spice, and as another reviewer suggested, didn't pre-cook the fish. Just cooked the onion, garlic then added the wet ingredients. Added the fish to the broth about 15 -20 minutes before serving time. It was a hit.

Fast Chicken Soup Base

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Loved this. Such an easy way to make stock. Let's face it. Those pre-cooked chickens are so much more flavourful than anything you can do yourself. I would recommend making at least a day in advance and chlling so you can remove the fat before making your final soup. Great recipe!

Love this recipe. This has become a staple for us. We have been eating quinoa for many years, and this recipe was a nice variation.

Grilled Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Delicious and so easy. I used orange juice instead of white grape juice and probably doubled the amount of ginger. We also used it on pork instead of chicken, but it really would be good on any kind of meat. Definite keeper!

Fruited Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
Great easy recipe that I'll be sure to try again. Loved the flavour but found the chopped strawberries were too chunky. I'll either puree them next time, or will simply serve them on the side.

Happy Birthday Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Literally tasted like a store-bought birthday cake, but fluffier and lighter. Really good recipe for a basic easy to make birthday cake.

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
A definite keeper. Only change we made was chicken broth instead of bullion cubes. Also, we just added the cilantro at the table instead of during cooking. Not too spicy, but that can be adjusted to personal taste. Definitely a pleasant change from traditional turkey soup. We're usually so sick of turkey leftovers, that this soup at least felt like quite a change up from the typical turkey dinner flavours. Thanks so much!!!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
Yummy. Not too sweet. I actually chilled the dough for a few minutes before shaping it and I did not roll in additional sugar. This is a keeper.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Delicious. Made exactly as the recipe indicated, but browned the roast prior to cooking. Really good recipe. The gravy was fantastic.
