Peach Kuchen

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
I doubled the "crust" as suggested by someone but I think that dried it out a bit due to the much longer cooking time. Still tasty though and I'll make it again but will cut back the crust ingredients to 1.5 the amount instead of double. Fresh Niagara peaches worked well.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
This will be one of our regular soups from now on. I'll try it with spicy Italian sausage next time for a change but this version was yummy just as is.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Super easy, great recipe I'm using as my standard these days. I just cut back on the salt since the Parmesan is salty enough.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Great chili. I cut back on the sugar but still found it a bit sweet so would completely eliminate it next time. I couldn't find the Williams chili seasoning so used a chili seasoning recipe on this site in its place. Super easy to make in the slow cooker.

Delicious! I made it last week to ice a batch of cupcakes and was asked for the recipe.

Awesome! Used it last night for Greek salad and will make it again and again. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Very tasty. I added a couple of cloves of garlic and it reminded us of honey garlic wings. Didn't need to double the sauce. Will make again with jasmine rice on the side next time.

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Just had to try this one after moving to Niagara in peach season. Delicious, moist muffin. I cut back sugar by 1/2 cup and also used 3/4 c. apple sauce in place of 3/4 c. of the vegetable oil (still used 1/2 c. vegetable oil). I'll make this one again next year.

Crumb-Coated Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
Yum! Made this for dinner tonight with a package of about 14 boneless, skinless thighs from Costco. I doubled everything except the salt, and added an extra 1/4 c. bread crumbs on top of that. There was plenty of coating. Easy clean-up since it's all mixed in the bag. I cut back on the total cooking time by 5 minutes since they were boneless. Delicious and moist. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
I've made this twice now, with fantastic results both times. I usually make my own crust but read a recent ready-made pie crust comparison test and decided to try the winner, the Pillsbury crust that you just roll out. It tasted homemade. I used corn instead of peas (since I hate peas) and didn't use celery seed since I didn't have any. I also cooked the chicken and veggies in chicken broth instead of water as others had suggested. Cooked it at 375 for 45 minutes, shielding the edges with tin foil for the first 25 minutes. Thanks so much for this great recipe!

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Excellent recipe I'll use again - but I'll definitely cut back to 2 tsp. rosemary and thyme and 4 cloves of garlic, and only cook the asparagus for 10 to 12 minutes total since mine was overcooked. It's a great recipe since you can put it in the oven and basically forget about it when you're having company and your potatoes and veggies are all done together.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
This is a delicious lasagna which I've now made at least 5 times. Make sure you use a large enough baking dish to hold everything. When I've used a smaller baking dish than I should, I've used the leftover sauce for spaghetti. Delicious either way!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I'd give this one a 6 if I could. Perfection. I followed the instructions to the letter (but just made a half recipe so I used an 8 x 8 pan) except I didn't have any lemons on hand so I used 2 tsp. key lime juice from a bottle instead. If there was a difference I couldn't taste it since there was no lime flavour at all. I also added vinegar to milk in place of the buttermilk. Thanks so much for this recipe - it's absolutely delicious.

Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Yum! Made these this afternoon so we can have them with a pot of tea while we're watching the Royal Wedding tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. I made the recipe exactly as written and the only change I'd make in future is to reduce the amount of sugar by a couple of tablespoons. Thanks for a great scone recipe! (Oops, forgot to note in my review that I also made the scones half the size so the recipe made twice as many - wouldn't want them any larger - and I cut them into circles instead of wedges.)

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Simple and foolproof recipe. I added some thyme and oregano as well. Baked them for 20 minutes, then turned them over for another 5 or so and they came out crispy on top.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
I really wanted to give this one 5 stars but we loved the Kalamata Pork Tenderloin recipe even more. This is a simple, quick, tasty recipe. I did have to cook it for about 10 minutes longer than called for - might be my oven. I found the onions baked up a bit crunchy, being on top of the pork tenderloin, so next time I would just lay them beside the meat and this way they would soak up some of the liquid. I only used one pound so halved everything, including using half a package of gravy mix. Would work well for company.

Perfect Baked Potato

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
The title of this recipe is perfect - it IS the perfect baked potato, especially when you do what the top reviewer suggested and nuke it first for 5 minutes, then bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Perfect, creamy consistency. No other way to bake a potato for me in future!

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
Simple to make and healthy, especially when you substitute non-fat evaporated milk for the heavier cream. I only made a half recipe since I had a half can of pumpkin on hand. I sauteed half a diced onion with the butter/curry mixture, added a splash of Frank's Red Hot in the last couple of minutes and sprinkled chia seeds on top for extra fibre. We liked it and I'll make it again.

Shrimp Quinoa

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I'm on the hunt lately for quinoa recipes and since I have about 5 bags of shrimp from a recent sale I thought I'd give this one a try. Verdict: yummy! I made it exactly as written except for omitting the raisins because I don't like them. Very easy to make, healthy and delicious. Next time I'll add an extra tablespoon of lemon juice to brighten the flavours up even more. My husband suggested adding a bit of chopped jalapeno (he loves the Szechwan Shrimp from this site) but he likes a lot of heat in his food. Thanks for a great recipe I'll make often!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Fantastic! I made a half recipe and ended up with one full loaf and 14 mini muffins. I used egg substitute for 1 of the eggs and used a half and half combo of applesauce and canola oil. Next time I'll reduce the sugar by about 1/2 cup and will increase the spices a little bit. The texture was perfect. I baked the loaf for 1 hour and the mini muffins for 20 minutes. I'll make this again but also want to try the Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread recipe on this site to compare it - don't see how it could be better though!
