Sweet Sausage 'n' Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
Warm and hearty on a cold winter night. I omitted the lima beans and used frozen mixed veggies instead of green beans. Served with cornbread...wish I had some potatoes too but was all out.

Ground Beef Curly Noodle

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
Wow...I was very skeptical about this one but after reading all the great reviews I gave it a shot and...it was FANTASTIC and FLAVORFUL! I added some garlic and onions to the beef as well as some salt and pepper, used 2 packs of Oriental Mr. Noodles with their seasoning packets, and added a bit of chicken broth as the mixture looked too dry to cook the noodles. Oh and I also threw in a pinch or two of sugar. I think I might cook the noodles separately next time and then throw them in once they are softened...might be easier and quicker. I'd give this 5 stars if only it looked prettier. Tasted great and husband enjoyed several servings of it!

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
So fast and easy to make AND they taste great too...that equals five stars in my books! Read the reviews and used half brown and half white sugars, 2 tbsp of flour and a splash of vanilla, and rolled the balls in sugar before flattening with a fork and baking on parchment paper for about 15 minutes until they were a golden brown colour. I let them cool completely on the parchment and they are crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle...perfection! Will make again and again...next time I'll add some chocolate chips!

Creamy Vegetable Medley

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
This was an easy side dish to prepare and it was tasty. It wasn't out-of-this-world but it was good. I don't even think you need to cook the frozen veggies...just toss them with the other ingredients and throw in the oven. The crunchy french-fried onions on top were the best part!

Shrimp Dip III

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
This was delicious! I also used green onion in lieu of white/yellow. Added some salt, pepper and a salsa spice mix as well as a lemon dilly spice mix by Epicure. Served it open faced on whole wheat bread, topped with a little extra cheese and broiled until melted. ***UPDATE*** Made this again for a light dinner tonight. Had half a loaf of a store bought garlic bread so I baked it up, topped it with the shrimp dip, sprinkled with more cheddar cheese, and put it back in the oven to heat through and melt the cheese. It was DIVINE!!! The garlicky flavour infused the shrimp and was heavenly.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
YUMMY! Made this tonight and was thoroughly impressed as was my husband. I mixed together one can of cream of mushroom and one can of cream of chicken and 3/4 can of milk and a sprinkle of salt, pepper and curry powder. I sauteed the chicken with chopped onions, mushrooms, frozen broccoli florets and garlic in a skillet with olive oil, salt and pepper, oregano and basil. I cooked the Stove Top according to the box instructions. Then I mixed everything in a large bowl...soups, milk, chicken mixture, cheese, and stuffing. I sprinkled panko breadcrumbs and more cheese on top. It was a warm and comforting meal that I will make again and again!

Dad's New Zealand Mince Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
Super tasty but whoa, too much pepper! I only used 1 tablespoon and that was still too spicy for my family. I served it like chili...topped with sour cream, shredded cheese and some cilantro. I am going to use the leftovers for tacos.

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Yum...tasted great and came together quickly! I sauteed the chicken in olive oil with onion and garlic. I seasoned with salt and pepper and italian seasonings. I used frozen mixed veggies, 1 can of cream of chicken and half a can of milk. Poured it all into a pie crust and baked until golden. Will make again. My only problem was scooping it out...it got a little ugly but still tasted fantastic!

Busy Day Ham Bake

Mmmm...I made this tonight with chicken instead of ham and it was fantastic...warm, cheesy and creamy. I added a bit more rice than called for. The breadcrumb topping looked and tasted great too.

Eggplant Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
Pretty good...I breaded my slices with panko breadcrumbs and baked in the oven. Topped with swiss cheese and sauteed onions and mushrooms, mayo, relish and ketchup. I enjoyed it as did my friend but my hubby didn't care too much for a meatless burger...typical guy!

Japanese Okonomiyaki

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
For my first attempt at okonomiyaki, this was pretty good. I used less flour than called for, dashi broth, a bit of soy sauce, bbq pork instead of bacon, some beansprouts, green onions, shoga (red matchstick ginger),and I used a coleslaw mix instead of chopping cabbage. I garnished with tonkatsu, kewpie mayo, and more shoga. My husband, toddler and I all enjoyed this dinner.

Creamy Chow Mein Chicken

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
This was okay but I prefer the chow mein noodle casserole recipes that use ground beef and rice instead of chicken.

Chow Mein Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This was a quick and delicious weekday meal...true comfort food that warmed and filled our bellies! I added some salt and pepper and garlic powder to the ground beedf while browning. I also threw in some beansprouts fro extra crunch. I used about a cup of noodles which I stirred right into the casserole and saved a handful to sprinkle on top. I was very satisfied with the finished casserole and it tasted even better the next day as leftovers for lunch! Will definitely make this again!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Awesome, awesome, awesome is all I have to say!!! The texture of these cookies is heavenly! I leave out the cherry though and either dip half in dark chocolate or else make a thumbprint and fill with raspberry jam...but they are terrific as is too! I also took the first reviewers tip and whipped the butter for 5 minutes and whipping between the sugar and flour additions. Stellar recipe!

Cheese Rosti

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
This was a super yummy side dish! I peeled and microwaved my potatoes for a few minutes, then grated. I lightly oiled a pan, layered on some potato, some grated mozzarella, salt and pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning, topped with some more potatoes and the seasonings. I fried it until it covered, didn't need any water or extra butter. When it was browned and crispy on the bottom, I cut it in half and flipped it (easier than flipping it whole). When it was browned and crispy...I served it with a dollop of sour cream. Will be making this one often!
