Salmon Deviled Eggs with Homemade Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I used just the mayonnaise part of this recipe as I'm not a fan of deviled eggs. It was SO easy and turned out SO good! Before I began, I had my doubts that I would be able to pull it off, but I needn't have worried. I think the trick is to keep whisking the egg yolks and add the oil a drop at a time. I didn't have any red wine vinegar, so used regular white vinegar and it turned out perfectly. I didn't use the garlic either, but can see adding some roasted garlic, horse radish, whatever you want. I don't use a lot of mayonnaise, so can see myself making it from scratch when I do need it. Thanks for a great, easy and tasty recipe.

Family Style Mac & Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
I used an entire can and could probably have used more to make the sauce even smoother. Other than that, I followed the recipe with the other measurements, just omitting the bread crumbs because I didn't have any. I also added some mustard powder for a bit of a kick. Nice flavour, but do add more evaporated milk.

Easy Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This turned out well. I followed the recipe, but did add a sliced onion and more pepper. I also used evaporated milk. I'm not sure why some had to cook for 2 hours. I used a mandolin to slice the potatoes and they cooked up beautifully. I can certainly see this as a delicious casserole with some sliced ham and broccoli or asparagus. A really good base recipe. Thanks!

Homemade Horseradish

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Too good and too easy! :). I love that you can make just as much as you need, so none goes to waste. I used just the horseradish and vinegar but no sugar. I may try using the sugar in my next batch. I love making condiments from scratch because you can add whatever you want to them. I'll probably add some garlic and/or onion in one of my batches. Thanks for a great recipe!

Dilled Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
This is a wonderful salad and has become a staple for when I want something quick and easy. It works just as well with just lemon or lime juice and just enough mayonnaise to hold it together. I like to add just a drop or two of hot sauce to give it a little kick. Using low or no fat mayonnaise also makes it very figure friendly. Thanks for a great recipe!

German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I've made this 3 times. The first 2 were with the flour I had on hand...bread flour. Please don't make the same mistake I made. Bread flour makes it think and gloppy. You can't get it through any small holed implement. I just ended up tossing blobs into the water. It tasted okay, but wasn't very visually appealing. The 3rd time was the charm! I used all purpose flour! And I found a spoon with some holes in it and just used a regular spoon to push it through. It came out FANTASTIC! I fried it with some butter and prosciutto and it was yummy, yummy, yummy. Next time, I think I will add some finely chopped onion, perhaps some garlic too. This is a winning recipe. Thanks so much!

Love Mussels

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This was just awesome! I made a couple of tweaks...barely tweaks, actually :). I didn't have scallions, so left them out. I was also out of tomato sauce so used a pint of fresh grape tomatoes, just mashed. I also didn't have fresh mussels...hmm, a shopping trip soon, perhaps? lol. I used frozen on the half shell mussels, instead. The end result was SO DELICIOUS!. I served it over some thin pasta and the juices just wrapped themselves around every strand. This will be a go to meal again and again. Thanjks for the recipe! I also didn't have any italian seasoning, so just sprinkled some basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Truly, one of the best meals I've cooked!

Tomato Peach Chutney

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This was wonderful and so easy! I made just a couple of changes, due to what I had on hand. I subbed celery for the green pepper, chili powder for the curry and completely forgot the ginger! It was still to die for! My first time canning too and wow, that was so easy too! I sterilized the jars for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath and then filled the jars and sealed them and let them take another long soak in the boiling water for 20 minutes. It turned out perfectly. I'll be making this again and again. Thanks so much!

Shrimp Egg Foo Yung

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
I absolutely loved this! Instead of the green onions, I added a chopped white onion. My sauce, unfortunately, ended up with big lumps of cornstarch...likely my fault as I probably added the cornstarch/water too quickly. I did leave the additional salt out of the sauce as I thought the soy sauce would be sufficient. The patties turned out perfectly, nice and dense and full of flavour. I was able to use some of the sauce and it was thick and delicious. I can't wait to make more today. Definitely a recipe woth a try!

I was skeptical about the boiling of the condensed milk. I thought that I would walk by the stove and, any minute, shards of metal would be embedding themselves in my forehead. I was wrong. I boiled it for 3 hours and toffee was born! The only thing I cheated on was using a store bought graham pie crust (all I had). It seemed the ginger was critical to this recipe, so I sprinkled some ground ginger on the inside of the crust. The rest of the recipe I followed exactly. This was heavenly and so easy! I served this yesterday as my dessert for Easter dinner. Even my father, Mr. Fussy Sweet Tooth, raved about it. I'll be making this again for our Royal Wedding food day at work this week. I must say, jolly good!! :)

Kelli's Fried Green Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
I haven't had much success with frying veggies before, but this time I hit the jackpot, though I did add a few steps. I first sliced the zucchini into 1/4 inch slices and let them dry out on a paper towel on the counter for about a half hour. I then coated them with flour mixed with salt and pepper. Then I dipped them in the egg, flavoured with a little hot sauce. I then mixed bread crumbs with fresh chopped parsley and cajun seasoning. I then put them on a plate, single layer, and refridgerated them for about an hour or so. I then fried them up about half a dozen slices at a time. Once they were golden brown, I added just a touch more salt and pepper, while they were still hot. I didn't have any cheese on hand or tomato sauce, but I can't see those ingredients adding anything but more yummy flavour! These turned out amazing! I can't wait to make this again and, next time, I will add the cheese and tomato sauce. Thanks for a great recipe!
