Cherry Berry Peach Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
Just loved the flavor combo of the different fruits. Was an excellent pie. Probably one of the best pies I've made. A keeper.

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

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.

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.

Pumpkin Parfait by Jo

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
I made this a little differently by not adding ice-cream in the pumpkin mixture because I wanted the deeper color. Nice dessert.

Chocolate Orange Fondue

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
I used milk chocolate (that's what I had on hand.) Quite thin, but very tasty. Will make thicker next time.

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.

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

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.

Orange-Almond Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
I used two loaf pans as suggested by reviewers. Sorry didn't have any almond extract, but used another favorite of mine. I suggest some orange zest if you like and fresh squeezed O.J. or good quality juice otherwise. I made about half the glaze for pouring and made up a little heavier powdered sugar glaze for a drizzling pattern. Good tasting bread.

Artichokes

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2013
Pretty good, but a whole lot of work for the tidbits. Whew! Probably won't make again.

Cheesy Onion Focaccia

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Wanted to make my own focaccia and this was the right recipe. The onions and garlic cooked in the seasoning makes a big difference. Also I like to brush my bread with good olive oil for flavor. Try the recipe for pizza crust as well, just let rise a few minutes then roll out thinner.

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

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.

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.

Orange Cornish Hen for Two

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
A flavorful treat; the glaze gives a beautiful orange color to the final dish and an impressive presentation for a special dinner. I cooked at a lower temp as suggested by others.

Boiled Lobster

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
I'm sure flavor was imparted into the Lobster with all the ingredients in the boil, but I really didn't notice anything special. I made a lemon butter sauce too for dipping which made a difference more than anything. Cook-time is according to the size of your lobsters as the recipe states.
