Alfredo Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
I thought these were delicious but I think a little less alfredo next time. I could taste potato anymore and they were a bit runny. Next time I will use 1/2 cup alfredo and maybe add some bacon bites

Banana Boats

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
Instead of the chocolate chips, I took 4 different types of chocolate bar and cut them up into pieces. Then everyone chose what kind they wanted in their boat. SO good! I highly recommend this with your favorite candy bar.

Asparagus with Blue Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
This was delicious!! I don't usually have evaporated milk in the house so I used 1/4 cup milk mixed with 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch. I used 2 tbsp of blue cheese because I like a sronger flavor of the cheese.

Maple Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Everyone loved this! People who said they don't like cranberry sauce ate this up! I found it a bit sweet at first taste but it really did grow on me. Next time I would crush up the cranberries a bit more well they are cooking so they are not whole.

Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
A good recipe for leftover rice. I did have to change a bit. I had 3 1/2 cups of rice,I used a whole can of corn, 1 1/2 cups of cheese, 2 tablespoons of oregano, salt and pepper. Still seemed to be missing something. I will try some different spices and maybe add more veggies next time.

Thai Red Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2011
I really wanted to make a good red curry but after reading some of the reviews on this recipe and noticing something not so authentic like cornstarch in the ingredients I decided to do some research. I made something that was still similar to this recipe: 1/2 yellow pepper, 1/2 red pepper both thinly slice, one carrot thinly sliced, 3 tbsp of red curry paste, 1 can coconut mild, 2 1/2 tbsp fish sauce, 1 tbsp lime juice, 2 chicken breast sliced thinly, 1 cup bean sprouts, 10 snow pea shoots, and 1/4 cup cilantro. So you can see it was similar but much more authentic and the flavours were amazing. I probably shouldn't even be rating this recipe seen as I didn't really follow it through but I wanted to share with everyone what I did and let you all know I was so impressed with the flavours. I must thank this recipe for giving me the basic iddea.

Barbeque Pork Two Ways

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I love this recipe!!! I did a pulled pork day to raise money at work. Everyone signed up and loved this pork. I had to give them the recipe! I made a couple little changes though. I find that any Pork cut usually works as long as there is no bone. I used 2 cloves of garlic,2 tsp dry mustard, no salt (I try to cut it out when it is not necessary), and I used 3/4 cup ketchup, and 3/4 cup bbq sauce because I wanted more of a bbq flavour.

Curried Chicken and Rice Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
I am always looking for recipes for leftover rice and this one is so far the best! I found it a bit too creamy. Next time I will only use 1/2 cup of sour cream. I also omitted the chicken and added a bit more red pepper.

Pumpkin Ravioli

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
These were delicious. I only gave it four star because it took a lot of effort to make these. I used a pumpkin sage sauce that I had found on this website and it went well with these. I will use the sauce again but I don't have the time to make ravioli so I will not be making these again

Annie's Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
This is a really good way to use up leftover turkey. I found it was missing a couple things. I add celery, walnuts and some onion powder. I did not have a premade mayo/mustard blend so I added 1/2 cup mayo and 1/4 mustard. We are more of a mayo loving family. You cannot forget the salt and pepper in this salad either. I ate it in a sandwich with mozza cheese, spinach and tomato. It was delicious.

Gyros Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
These were awesome!! They actually tasted like Gyros. I completely forgot to put the grated onion in and did not have savory so I substituted Thyme but it was still delicious. I served them in pita pockets with lettuce, tomato, feta and tzatziki. I will definitly be making these again!

Vietnamese Salad Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I love salad rools and decided it was time to try them at home. It wasn't as hard as I thought. I used this recipe as a base but I left out the basil and added julienned cucumer like the restaurants. I love hoisin as the dipping sauce but I do not usually add any water. Sometimes if I have some on hand I will dip in peanut sauce which is just as delicious.

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I don't know what went wrong with this, I did half the recipe because I wasn't cooking for 8 people. It was way to salty and did not have a good after taste.

Lemongrass Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
This has potential. I found that the tumeric was not quite strong enough so I added 2 tbsp of curry powder. The rice would just not soften. It was burning the bottom of the pan. I kept having to add water which made it eventually lose taste. Next time I think I will try having pre-cooked rice and then adding the ingrdients.

Slow Cooker Chili II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I have made this several times. The first time I made it I found it tasty but something didn't taste quite right. After several experimentations I believe it was using the liquid in the beans and the spice blend that gave it an odd flavor. This last attempt was so different from the recipe that it is hard to give more than 3 stars. 1 can each of kidney and black beans drained and rinsed, 1 cup tomato sauce for some liquid, 1 can diced tomatoes, extra chili powder, ground cumin, no basil or parsely (gives it an "earthy" taste), no celery and I added 1 can creamed corn. It was so good this is now my official chili recipe. It tastes good vegetarian style as well by adding ground round in place of ground beef

Delicious Apple Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I thought this was delicious and so simple. I played with the measurements a bit because of other peoples reviews but I ended up in the end adding the same amount as it called for in the recipe. I did triple the recipe as well. My best advise is to add the ingredients a bit at a time until you find the flavor that you desire.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
I love this recipe but my husband is not the biggest fan. I still make it on occasion and he will still eats it. His biggest problem is the curry (he's not much of a curry fan.) I love curry! I use a little less butter and a little less curry.

My Kid's Favorite Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
These were delicious. I used a whole can of beer because I did not want to waste any. I only used one onion, 1/2 cup of bbq and simmered it for 30 minutes. I added a tbsp of cornstarch mixed with a tbps of water at the end just to thicken the sauce up a bit. My husband could not stop talking about how good it smelt and how tender the meat was.

Easy Cheese Ball II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
This was delicious! I cut the recipe in half and I still had leftovers. I added 2 tbsp of bacon bits and used the kraft already shredded Monterey jack,mozzarella, and cheddar mix. Next time I will add some green onions and some pepper flakes for some spice

Bacon Asparagus Pizza

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was amazing!! Like one of the other reviews said, fight the temptation to add sauce. It really does not need any. I used the Valentino's pizza crust recipe from this website. I used 8 pieces of bacon, only 1/2 cup of goat cheese,and sprinkled 1 tbsp of basil on top of everything before going into the oven.
