French Onion Soup VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
HOLY COW this was soooo good! As a child, I was never fond of onions, but last week, on an impulse, I bought 10 lbs of onions for $1.49. Then I needed to make something with them! My boyfriend had the ingenious idea to make soup! So I found this recipe and on Friday night I whipped it up. It was fantastic! The wine really added a nice touch. I used all the same ingredients, but the quantities might have varied a little. I'll be making this one again for sure! Oh, there were 2 soups leftover (with bread and cheese and everything) which we ate the next day. The bread was totally soaked with the soup liquid and it threw the whole thing into a new dimension of deliciousness! I did cook mine quite a bit longer than suggested by the recipe, about 30 minutes of cooking the onions alone, and then I boiled the soup a little to cook the onions a bit more and to reduce the liquid a bit.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I used the ingredients as directed, except I added a bit less water because I wanted it more like stew and I used a leek instead of onion because I had fresh leeks on-hand. It was really delicious! Mine burnt on the bottom of the pot a little, and I found that there were too many dumplings (and BOY do those little buggers ever EXPAND!!) but overall the taste was great. In the future I might use 1 can of Chicken soup and 1 can of mushroom soup, simply because I prefer the flavor. I cut the chicken (only 2 breasts, but I should have used a bit more) into pieces and browned them a little with the leek to speed up the process. The whole thing took only 1 hour.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
This is possibly the most delicious dessert I have ever tasted. I call them Cheesecake Sandwiches. I made them for a Birthday party and cut them into about 40-ish bite-sized pieces in various shapes (mostly little triangles) They were a HUGE hit!

Julia's Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Very delicious! As other commenter mentioned, I used 4 cups water & 4 cups broth. I also used balsamic vinegar, which really did add something special. I doubled the carrots & celery as well as adding 1 chopped zucchini near the end of cooking. I used frozen spinach, which I just tossed in near the end and I pulsed the whole thing with my immersion blender, which made the consistency a little thicker, which was nice. A great success for my first attempt at making lentil soup!

Granola

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This granola is totally addictive. I added about a cup of chopped almonds, and about 1 cup of each dried cherries, dried apricots and raisins. I cooked it 2hrs, stirring every 15-20 minutes. I also used equal parts of banana and prunes, not dates, and added some coconut. YUM! You can add exactly the type of add-ins that you like!

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This recipe is fantastic! I added 1 bottle of beer to the 3 cups of water, and still added a bit more water to cover the corned beef. As others did, I put the beef at the bottom of the crock pot and added the cabbage only in the last 3 hours of cooking. Everything came out perfect! The potatoes and carrots were NOT over-cooked and the cabbage was just right. My boyfriend and I raved about the flavor and texture of the meat and veggies through the whole meal... not something we do every day!!! AWESOME and super simple recipe. I will make this again for sure!

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I have used this recipe more often than any other for bread in my machine. I had the notion this morning to put fresh herbs in the loaf I'm going to make for Christmas! :) Once the dough cycle finishes, I plop the dough onto a floured surface and cut in 2 with a large knife. I DON'T shape or dimple, I just invert the dough lumps onto parchment paper, so the floured side is up and bake after it rises. Perfect every time. And I'm sure it'll be even more awesome with fresh herbs!!!

Endless Depth of Meat (BBQ Pulled Pork)

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Oh my gosh, this smells so awesome when cooking! I use about a 4lb shoulder and grab them now whenever they come on sale. I don't bother doubling the sauce and use 1 cup of each ketchup and BBQ sauce. I also use real mustard instead of dried. I shred the pork a few hours before I want to serve so that the meat has a chance to soak up some sauce. I serve it on Onion buns with coleslaw on top! YUM!

Snowball Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I made this last week and covered the top with shaved white chocolate instead of coconut and it was a HIT at my dinner party! It took about 1h15m to cook.

Beef Barley Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
I made this for a second time with much better results. I used more beef and made sure to use wine to get a nice depth of flavour. I'm eating leftovers from the freezer today for lunch and it's just as yummy as when I first made it! I will be making this again!

Green Eggs and Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I wasn't sure about this at first, but the taste only gets better as it sits! I had only a tiny bit of spinach, so I added some cooked chopped broccoli. I also added some garlic to the onions, which I cooked in a little butter, before mixing with the broccoli/spinach. I mixed the baking mix, milk and eggs separately and then stirred everything together, so as to get a more chunky texture. Added the ham and cheese on top of the 9 x 9 glass dish. I cooked it 35 mins @ 325 and an additional 15 mins @ 350 because it was totally jiggly!

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Who would have thought that something with this much spinach could taste so good?!?! I used a whole package of spinach, even though it looked like a lot, 7 medium sized potatoes, 1/2 cup butter 1 small container of sour cream. 2 chopped green onions, 2 cloves garlic. I chose not to put any dill in it. I had no cheddar, so I put 4 Kraft singles on top, covered with some crumbled goat feta, and baked at 400 for about 30 minutes along with a huge fillet of salmon. Absolutely amazing and everyone loved it!

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
AWE-SOME! As some other reviewers suggested, I used a can of coconut milk and the balance of regular milk. I also covered the pie with whipped topping and additional toasted coconut. Not only was it a show-stopper, but it was soooo delicious. I will be making this one again for sure!

Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I used this recipe for the first time last night. I made a double batch because I had a lot of fresh cranberries to use. The only change I made was to use the rind of 1 whole lemon chopped finely and the juice of 1 lemon in place of the lemon extract. They are PERFECT. Just enough sweetness and tartness to make a perfect muffin. The regular sized muffins came out of the paper liners with ease and the mini muffins popped out of the pan which I sprayed with cooking spray. The mini muffins were a HIT at work! This recipe is a keeper!
