Tina's Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2015
Great little shortbread cookie. I added some vanilla and chocolate candies instead of chocolate chips. I also used pecans. Everyone loved them.

Ghirardelli Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2015
Needs more sweetness (which I added but not enough.) And if you're a real chocolate-lover and enjoy a chocolate overload then this is for you. I'll probably go semi-sweet next time. I didn't add the coffee my preference. I do admit with strawberries it wasn't half bad and the presentation was exceptional. I'll get this one worked out for us, because it would be worth the effort.

Honey Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2015
I confess to mixing this up to taste, but it's a great base to start. We enjoyed it with crab and was a perfect complement. I'll remember this one. Thanks

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2014
Rich, creamy, decadent are all words that come to mind when describing this delicious cheesecake... absolutely a New York Cheesecake. I made cranberry glaze which was perfect for the holidays.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Bisque with Smoked Applewood Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
This was "Autumn" in a bowl. The white wine added the unique flavor tying the whole dish together. With that said, I didn't care for the nutmeg in it having tried it both ways. I did add a spiral of sour cream that was wonderful and enhancing. I also toasted the butternut seeds and added a touch of them on top of the bacon.

Quick Creamy Reuben Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
I'm rating 5 stars even though I put in less sauerkraut and swiss cheese to my liking. I also added a bit of red bell pepper. We loved it! If you do put in less ingredients, you will probably want to adjust liquids as you desire.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
This soup was basically on the right track. However, not exactly what I was looking for. I'd probably leave out the cloves next time. I noticed a lot of people changed the recipe considerably to get it to their liking.

Waldorf Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2014
The watercress fit beautifully into this wonderful salad. I didn't have any apple juice on hand, so subbed some orange juice and added a touch sugar to balance. I also used one sweet apple and one tart only. The salad looked elegant on the plates and delicious. I think this should be called "Waldorf Watercress Salad" so people can see the special ingredient when just browsing. But anyway a lovely dish. Thank-you

Delicious recipe! The only thing I didn't do was add the sugar and didn't miss it one bit.

Spinach Watermelon-Mint Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2014
I too used another type of greens instead of spinach and I opted for more watermelon and less mint. We found it to be both a luscious and visually appetizing salad. The Worcestershire sauce adds an additional flavor layer to the dressing that was quite appealing. I also sprinkled some sesame seeds and poppy seeds on top for eye appeal. Didn't use as much onion just some through-out. Didn't add the pecans and actually not sure if they're needed.

Summer Anytime Crisp Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
I like this because you can pick and choose veggies or stir-up the dressing according to your preferences. I used freshly cooked corn-on-cob and cut it off.

Bill's Seasoned Ketchup

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
Wanted something different on the burgers of our "4th of July" celebration and this delivered. So easy to make it like you want it. A great way to top off those charbroiled burgers plus more.

Fava Bean Salad

Paired this with " Asian Orange Chicken" on this site. Lovely way to prepare fava beans. I used freshly cooked favas for this recipe.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
I added a few extra veggies to shine along with rice and paired with fresh "Fava Bean Salad" on this site. Restaurant quality dish. Oh and I didn't marinate the chicken at all, I just made the sauce and cooked the chicken.

Easy Homemade Pastrami

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
We followed the recipe to the letter. This is a very admirable attempt to create one of my favorite deli meats. And that's just what "Chef John" said, that it was a substitute not exactly. I find that to be true. The spice blend is good yet a tad overly peppery. With that said, the meat (inside) lacked some flavor that Pastrami usually has. I'm sure that would have to do with brining. So my conclusion would be... I will probably brine a brisket for a few days and then use this spice blend minus a bit of the pepper (not much though.) I might try smoking the meat as well. I know hard work was put into this. Thank-You

Cheese Souffle from Egg Farmers of Ontario

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
With a pinch of dry mustard, garlic powder, and cayenne added the dish was improved. Also, I made it twice and the first time it didn't brown. The next time I preheated to 400 and when putting in I lowered the temp to 375. That did the trick for my oven to get a lovely golden color on them.

Fondant for Chocolate Cherries

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
The corn syrup really works nicely in the recipe and makes a great fondant. I thinned this some with more corn syrup and favorite flavorings to make a filling for chocolate eggs. Also, I colored some to use for the centers. I'll be using for my chocolate covered cherries. Thanks
