Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2014
Just like my Scottish grandmother used to make! I used 3 cups of flour, and rolled the dough out to 1/2 thickness, then used a shot glass to cut out circles. I placed half of a red glacé cherry on top (like my dad used to do). They turned out buttery, with just the right consistency; not too crunchy, not too soft. Perfect!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2014
I just finished eating this, and I'm still savouring the wonderful flavours in my mouth! I was concerned that it might be too much pepper, but it was just the right amount for me. I omitted the parsley and the wine because I didn't have them on hand, and instead added a little extra water. Delish!

Slow Cooker Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2014
OMG! I'm not a beef eater usually, but my roommate is, so I bought a blade roast on sale. I followed the recipe, only substituting the chicken broth for vegetable broth (it's all I had on hand), and it turned out perfectly. I made a plate up for my neighbour who was feeling ill, and I got a voice message from her saying only this: 'YUM,YUM,YUM,YUM,YUM,YUM...!' I served garlic mashed potatoes with the gravy and it was delicious. The browning of the meat made all the difference, I think. Thank you for posting this!

Turkey Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2014
I always have a hard time replacing ground beef with ground turkey but this was really tasty! The only changes I made were adding a layer of frozen corn on top of the meat, but before the potatoes, and eliminating the fresh parsley. I never have parsley around. I forgot to stir in the flour, but it still tasted great. I put it under the broiler for about five minutes before serving, and the top came out nicely brown and a bit crispy. I always boil several cloves of peeled garlic with my potatoes when I plan to mash them. It gives them a much richer, fuller flavour. I served it with fresh-from-the-garden green beans in a garlic-butter-and-lemon sauce. Excellent meal!

Spicy Eggplant

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
This was better than anything I've ordered at a restaurant and healthier, too! I didn't have any oyster sauce so I just omitted it. I added thinly sliced mushrooms and served it over quinoa. It had just the right amount of heat for me. This is going to be my go-to eggplant recipe from now on!

Veggie Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I've got to say it wasn't one of my favourites. If I'm going to spend time layering, I'd use a different recipe.

Asparagus Avocado Medley

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I just got home from the grocery store and bought asparagus (on sale) and three 1/2 price avocados from the marked down bin. I decided to skim through some recipes and I'm sure glad I did! This dish is fantastic! I used regular mustard and pureed garlic from a jar and it still turned out great. And so easy to make!

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Just what I needed after a really bad day! I made them as directed and they were just as good as store bought or restaurant fries. Next time, I'll spice up the batter a little more but overall, a decadent treat after a long day.

Kidney Beans and Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Excellent side dish or even as a vegetarian meal. I omitted the green pepper because I don't like them but the seasonings with the beans and corn were delicious. It's now a standard dish in my house.

15-Minute Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
I really, really like this marinade recipe. I used it to bake boneless chicken breasts in the oven. I added a bit of water to the bottom of the dish so it wouldn't dry out. It made the chicken very tasty and with no oil used, it's still very low in fat.

Chocolate Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
I had a bit of trouble with this recipe. Firstly, I live in Canada so the measurements are different and this caused a problem. I bought one package of chocolate cake mix but didn't think to convert it to oz. because I figured a package is a package. NO it's not!. It takes two packages at 266g to make this recipe. When I saw how much batter I had to work with I knew I'd messed up. I figured the brownies would thin but just as delicious. I could probably have put it into an 8X8 pan but I had too much melted caramel sauce. Anyway, it turned into a gooey dessert served in bowls with ice cream and was a hit none the less!

Rosemary Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I added dijon mustard to the glaze & used fresh rosemary since I grow my own. The glaze crusted up beautifully and the flavour was fantastic! It works great on baked pork chops too. This is going to be my regular glaze for pork roasts from now on!

Garlic Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Very moist and tender chicken.I used a smaller chicken and substituted a bit of lime juice for the lime wedge. I took an idea from another garlic chicken recipe and made slits in the chicken and placed half cloves are garlic in each slit. It really added to the flavour of the chicken, especially the next day for sandwiches. I added some extra spices to the gravy because I like a lot of flavour but overall, this is a good recipe for a flavourful roast.

Baby Carrots And Brussels Sprouts Glazed With Brown Sugar and Pepper

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I loved this dish! I did what another reviewer did and cooked the veggies in the microwave first, then transferred the carrots and sprouts to an oven proof bowl, poured the glaze over top, put the lid on and heated it in the oven while I prepared the rest of the meal. I'm not a huge fan of brussel sprouts but these are delicious.Very quick and easy.

Beef, Burgundy Style

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
I thought this was very tasty but I found the sauce a bit thick. I followed the recipe to a 'T', right down to the demi glace. The flavour was wonderful but since I only cook for myself, it was a heavy meal to have two nights in a row.

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
