Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2012
My husband and I agreed that the taste was good, but too dry. Wish I had read the other reviews which suggested adding some milk beforehand. I especially liked that after a big portion, I didn't feel overstuffed!

Pork with Peaches Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Easy and tasty, if not a little on the bland side. I did not include broccoli but used swede (rutabaga) instead. I also used fresh peaches; I added a bit of water and sugar to replace the juice that would have come from the canned peaches.

Bok Choy Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
This had a lovely taste and I will definately make it again. 1/2 tsp of pepper was plenty for taste - it even smelt peppery - rather than 1 tsp. I also reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp to suit my tastes. Finally, I did not add the chile-garlic sauce because my husband doesn't like spicy food, but the flavour was still great.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I liked the cinnamon sugar coating from the pan. The recipe was too large for what I wanted, so divided it in half. I also used a larger loaf pan but cooked it for 1/2 longer, so it was fine.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
a 1/4 makes about 8-10 large cookies, so I cut these in half - 1 tbsp scoop made the perfect size. They were delicious too & I would be tempted to experiment with 1.5 cups chocolate chips & 1/2 cups chopped hazelnuts.

Chewy Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
They're ok, but have a slight after taste from the maple syrup. I substituted oats (1 cup) for the coconut and made some with & some without walnuts - those with walnuts were better.

Easy recipe & tastes great. The recipe yielded enough for 1 large gingerbread housse.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Amazing! I accidentally used 2 cups of flour but it turned out fine. It was so moist that I had to be careful when taking it out of the pan because it was stuck to the bottom, but otherwise no problems. My husband was sceptical about the coffee, but you can't taste it at all - the best homemade (from scratch) chocolate cake I've had!

Sour Cream Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
While others have said that the cake was too dry, I found that the cake was too dense for my liking - a heavy fudge cake. I cannot comment on the icing because I used a different recipe.

West Coast Cod and Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I didn't have cream, so used evaporated milk but it worIed just as well. I also cooked uncovered after reading some reviews about it becoming too watery. I thought that this was good but richer than most meals I would eat and my husband didn't like it at all so I've given it 3 out of 5 stars. I probably won't make it again.

Kidney Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I did not include the eggs (for no other reason other than I didn't have any to hand)but did include a bit of dill as suggested by another member. I also noted that some others thought the salad had too much mayo/relish, so added both ingredients just a bit at a time until I was satisfied. Tasty & wll probably make it again.

Sausage Bean Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I used uncooked pork sausages and baked the stew in a cassarole dish (uncovered) for approx 40 mins. I also used a bit of mild chili powder and oregano. Will defnately cook this again!

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Easy to make, but the sauce was a bit too rich for me.

Honey Lime Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
An easy and tasty recipe, however, the amount of sauce was perfect for about 6 - 8 wings so double if you are doing more. Rather than frying, I baked them for 30-40 mins at 400 degrees and they were perfect.

Eggnog Blend

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
I tried making eggnog a few years back & it went horribly wrong but this recipe was a huge success. Don't be tempted to speed up the cooking process at the beginning (making the custard). Keep the heat low & stir constantly until it's thickened slightly. I didn't add the ice cream (it was sweet enough without) and used part whole milk & part single cream because we can't get half & half in the UK. I also only used rum as is the tradition back home. It was delicious and everyone loved it - and most of my friends had never tried eggnog before - by far the best eggnog I've had.
