French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
I made this for my boyfriend's birthday dinner at his request. He's always loved French onion soup and I'd never made it before. We both thought it was incredible. I read the recipe wrong when purchasing the ingredients and thought I needed equal amounts of chicken and beef broth, so that's what I ended up using when making the soup; however, it didn't seem to affect anything.

Baked Salmon Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
This was delicious. I used garlic and onion powder, cut the salt and mixed the spices with the oil as well as the chopped chives and fresh thyme. I coated the tops of the salmon with it and grated the Parmesan on top. I didn't put the spinach in with the cheese and instead served the salmon on it. My salmon pieces were tall and skinny and the spinach just wouldn't have sat right on top as well as everything else. The toppings created an amazing crust on top of the salmon and I got rave reviews. Really quick and easy.

Classic Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I've never made macaroni and cheese before with evaporated milk, and I was surprised at how good this was! The only changes I made were that I melted the butter and mixed it with the pasta, and I crumbled the cheese and mixed it in instead of slicing it. Before I baked it, I covered the top of the casserole dish with a mixture of bread crumbs and grated cheese, and it made a really nice crunchy golden brown crust at the top. The evaporated milk gave it such a good, creamy taste, and my daughter, who can be really picky, loved it. I baked it at 375 for 45 minutes until it was no longer liquid inside.

Mushroom Lentil Barley Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I made this because I had friends coming over after work and would have no time to prepare something. Plus, one of my friends is a vegetarian making the "what do I make??" decision even harder. I really liked this! I actually really dislike button mushrooms, so I upped the quantity of shiitake mushrooms and also added a mix of portobello and oyster mushrooms along with the shiitake. I didn't have savory, so I used thyme. And I used a diced onion instead of onion flakes. I added a can of spinach (I felt like Popeye - I didn't even know they actually had cans of spinach!) which was good for colour and flavour as well. The recipe makes a lot, and I've been happily eating leftovers for several days now. I don't usually eat vegetarian food but who knew it could be so good? ;) Thanks for the recipe!

Thighs on Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
I read through many of the reviews and decided to make this last night with a few modifications. Instead of butter, I used olive oil, and I added a half cup more water. I also chopped a clove of garlic with the chopped onion. I didn't use bouillon cubes and instead used chicken broth, and I threw in some frozen vegetables (peas and carrots) with the rice, and a few cherry tomatoes from the garden. I added some garlic powder to the spices as well. To ensure everything cooked evenly, I stirred the rice a couple times during cooking and turned the chicken over as well. This was really easy to make and the whole thing was ready in about an hour (prep and cooking), so it was a great meal to make after a long day at work. My boyfriend raved about it and had seconds, and continued raving about it long after we'd finished eating. It's definitely something I'll make again.

Salmon and Spinach Fettuccine

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
I made this last night, and thought it was excellent. I'm giving it four stars because I made a few modifications as suggested by others. I used salmon I baked in the oven, not smoked, and I used baby spinach that I sauteed in some olive oil with finely chopped garlic and onion. When I added the spinach to the sauce I added it with the garlic and onion. I also added some white wine, and some ground black pepper. I only had dried oregano so I used a couple tsps of it instead of fresh. I used 1% milk, and I thought the sauce was a thick enough consistency, without being too thin or too grainy.

Lacy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Everyone who tried these cookies loved them. They were a hit. In my first batch, I followed the recipe exactly and then sprayed a non-stick baking tray with pam, but I had a really hard time getting the cookies off after they cooled. What I ended up doing was adding 1/4 cup more flour. I sprayed the baking sheet with pam, and instead of taking the cookies off when cool, I let them cool only a minute or two, and then took them off while they were still hot. They cooled instantly when off the pan, and came off in one piece. They looked perfect, and tasted even better!
