Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2014
When I first read about rum in sangria, I thought no way! But I did it with CM Spiced Rum, strawberries, raspberries, oranges, pears, pineapple. Soaked it for about a day and a half. Added no sugar, and the wine and OJ. It was a big hit! I will definitely make it again. The only thing is you have to plan in advance. I used to make sangria with only red wine and OJ, plus the fruit and I thought THAT was good! LOL, thanks for a great simple recipe!

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2013
Yes, I make this all the time, have done for years. Bake at 350-400 F for at least 30 minutes or sometimes do it on the BBQ grill. Usually serve with warmed Brie or Camembert on a baguette, sometimes with a piece of fresh basil and a baby tomato OR top the melted cheese with something sweet, like pepper jelly or even any kind of jam. YUMMY! Great appetizer when you are sitting around with friends waiting for dinner to be ready!

Grandma's Baking Powder Biscuits

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
Simple recipe, delicious results. The cream of tartar is not necessary. I also prefer to use real butter over shortening. Rather than drop the dough onto sheet, I prefer to spread it out with my hands onto my baking sheet and score lightly so I can break them apart or cut with a knife. I like my biscuits with more flavor so I typically add grated cheese to them. I also added chopped jalapeno on this occasion which went fantastic with my home made spaghetti sauce! Thank you for this recipe! I always used to think that the only way to make great biscuits was with buttermilk but this recipe proves me wrong!

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Fantastic, made it exactly as written, loved the flavors, I'm sure you could mix up the veg as you like as long as you keep the lime, cilantro and curry powder. Very healthy too, big hit with everyone!

One Skillet Corned Beef Hash

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Great recipe, we go camping a lot in the summer and I tried this for BF one morning with eggs and toast. Made it almost exactly (except there are only two of us so I halved it) as the recipe called except I didn't measure the pepper or the vinegar. It was very good and makes enough for two breakfasts! Great with soft eggs and toast!! Thank you very much - it's a keeper and will remain with my "regular camping recipes" forever!!

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Loved this recipe. I agree - I think the semolina makes all the difference! I used the Kitchen Aid mixer to blend everything into a ball, then kneaded by hand for about 10 minutes. The dough was very hard and I was quite concerned but after letting it rest for 30-60 minutes, it was softer and beautiful to roll out and use in the pasta maker. I did also add some dried basil and some black pepper to the dough while mixing.

Grilled Mussels with Curry Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Made pretty much exactly according to the recipe. Took a bit longer on the grill, but it was a cold night outside. Also added a few scallops to each packet. Really excellent flavours! Will make again although I may try just doing it in a pot vs the grill. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Shrimpcargot

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
YUMM!! Used the correct amount of butter, added 3 minced cloves, used about 12 shrooms, and a bag of shrimp. Stuffed the shrooms with the shrimp, then just stuck in the extra shrimp in between. After drizzling with the garlic butter, I sprinkled a cheese mix (asiago, parm, mozza) and then sprinkled with a bit of dried basil. Beautiful! Our guests were impressed! Thanks!!

Butternut Squash and Spicy Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Ok, this wasn't great. Actually the taste was ok, it was just kind of strange. Not certain if I agree that the sausage goes well with the squash. Next time I will try the plain creamy squash soup I think.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
Was very good. Used 2 larger cloves of garlic as I believe garlic improves everything! Also used fresh basil, rather than dried and about half tsp of thyme. Increased the flour to 4 tbsp and the potatoes to 3 which actually made it too thick so thinned it out with a bit of beef broth (I had used up all my chicken broth). Everyone really liked it, don't know if it really even needed the cheese. Will make again. Great cold weather meal! Thanks Kristi!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
It was ok, found the tomato-eeniss almost overwhelming though. Don't think I will make this again.

Chad's Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Made in crock pot, used the meat as suggested in recipe plus added one package of Chorizo sausage as well. Couldn't find Mexicorn so just used plain corn. I added the kidney beans but not the black beans as it was so thick already. Not sure if the ranch dressing was really necessary? I used part of the package but don't think it was really needed as soup already had great full flavour. (I just used a plain normal beer cuz I didn't want to have to buy a 6-pk for one beer). Soup was spicy and filling, went fantastic with homemade baking powder & buttermilk biscuits to which I added chopped jalapeno and grated cheese! Wow! Great for Canadian winters!

Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Great recipe and nice and easy! Used 2 eggs rather than the substitute and also the zest of one lemon. Added a bit of vanilla extract as suggested by another review and it was excellent! Made it twice in one week and received awesome reviews!

Debbie's Ultimate Mushroom Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This was amazing! Delicious, I think its vital to not overdo the olives as they will take over if you do! I used about a half can of Lindsay's large pitted olives and it was just perfect! My son, who detests olives, didn't even realize they were in there. They are important though, I think it helps balance the dish! Thank you Debbie!

Glorified Hash Browns

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
I made this to take to a potluck. Everyone loved it! It was the most popular dish there! I added green onions to the hash browns and topped with chopped bacon. I aso used plain light cream cheese, and for the soup, I used mushroom and garlic. Very good, will make again!

Sweet Onion Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
We LOVED this! Used Ritz crackers for crust. For cheese I used swiss and Asiago which gave it lovely flavor! Also used 2% milk rather than whole, next time will try skim. This dish would add a nice touch to any type of meal. Thank you!! Pretty easy to make also!

Italian Sausage Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Very nice one-meal dish. Made it using hot Italian sausage which really added flavor and heat. Also added half chopped red pepper for more variety. Very good, easy to make after work too. I would mix it up trying different sausages too. Thanks!
