Very tasty! Followed the tip from another reviewer and used half Apple cider vinegar/half white and it turned out great. Used bagged preshredded cole slaw and added chopped onion and dressing.

To Die For Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2014
Too greasy and sauce wouldn't thicken. Despite addition of fresh garlic didn't have much flavor.

Two Step Creamy Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Excellent and very easy recipe!! Cut the whipped topping to 8 oz as per previous reviewer suggestions. As strawberries aren't so flavorful at this time of year, I melted about 1/4 cup of strawberry jam and tossed with the sliced stawberries which made them taste amazing! Also drizzled some melted chocolate on top. The whole pie was gone between 4 people!

Cheese Sauce Over Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Very good. Steamed a medium head of cauliflower in a handy steamer bag for 4 mins. Did not use thyme (not a huge fan) or paprika and there was still excellent flavor. Makes a nice presentation as well.

Chutney Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Considering how few ingredients, this was pretty darn good! Cooked up some chicken thighs and breasts. The only thing I wasn't too fond of was the crunchy bits of onion from the onion soup, but other than that, it was great.

One-Dish Beef Stroganoff and Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Flavor was prett good, but consistency of the sauce needs work. Cooked the onions with the beef and substituted dried parsley for fresh. Substituted sour cream for yogurt. Even after doubling the amount of yogurt called for in the recipe, I still found the sauce to be too thin for my liking. If I make this again, I will cut back on the broth or water.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Thought this was an excellent vegetarian lasagna. I substituted fresh spinach for frozen and artichoke hearts packed in water for marinated. Whole wheat noodles were used instead of regular. As well, I used a combo of dry curd cottage cheese with part-skim mozzarella and skipped the feta. Next time I would cut down on the vegetable broth by about a quarter cup as it was a bit watery. But everyone loved the recipe and I will make again.

Donair

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
I love donairs, so I was quite excited for this recipe! Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations. The meat was on the dry side and had not a whole lot of flavor, despite adding oregano as other reviewers suggested. It did slice quite thin and nicely after letting it cool overnight, which was good. The sauce was too thin and seemed to be a bit off in flavor..a bit too sour.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
Excellent cookie recipe that I will definitely use again. I have deadly allergies to eggs, so this one is a winner in my books. I did substitute milk and white chocolate chips for the semi-sweet as that is what I had. I took the advice of other reviewers and used a cold fork to press down on the top of the cookies before they baked. My one and only complaint was that you should definitely not drop it by the "teaspoonfuls"...I used a tbsp for a measurement and the cookies were a little on the small side (or maybe I am just extra greedy!). As well, recipe made 48 cookies instead of 24. Next time will use larger spoonfuls of dough.

Dilly Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
This was just OK in my books. To be fair, I did adjust the recipe a little bit. I substituted garlic powder for the minced onion and used about a tsp extra of the dill- I also omitted the butter. I baked in a 350 degree over for an hour. The flavor wasn't bad- it just was kind of bland. If I were to make again, I would try adding the butter and add extra lemon juice as the lemon flavor wasn't very prominent.

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Very decent recipe. Am not a fan of the powdered boullion, so I substituted about 10 cups of organic chicken broth for the cubes and water. As well, cut the celery in half as I am not too big of a fan and used herbes en provence instead of the marjoram. Definitely hits the spot for comfort food.

Cheese Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Thought this recipe was OK, but needed tweaking. I used aged white cheddar and fresh chives instead of dried (about 1 tbsp). I added about an extra 2 tbsp worth of milk as the batter seemed dry which helped, but the biscuits still turned out a bit on the dry side. Next time would add more liquid.

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
This recipe is pretty good with some modifications. First, you have to add garlic! I added about 3 cloves minced. I cooked the garlic and the onion with a little bit of oil for about five minutes and then added the ground beef and cooked till browned. I also had to add about 1/3 cup of crushed tomatoes into the recipe as it just didn't look "tomatoey" enough..hahaha. Finally, this dish is excellent served with a splash of vinegar on top. All in all, a solid recipe that will hit the spot when a craving for cabbage rolls hits, but not as good as the real deal!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
I would give this recipe 4.5 if there was an option. Nice, moist muffins that filled my kitchen with the most amazing fragrance. I substituted sour cream for the yogurt as I was out. 1 cup of mashed banana is equal to about 3 ripe bananas (ones that are starting to blacken on their peels are the sweetest). As well, figured out half way through the recipe that I was out of regular chocolate chips, so used 1/4 cup chopped high quality milk chocolate bar and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Will definitely make again. Made 10 muffins for me.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
This is more so a review for the sauce then the meatballs as I cheated and used frozen lean beef meatballs (it was a hectic day). This sauce is quite good considering the few ingredients and I would make it again (maybe with homemade meatballs next time :))

Chicken Papadoris

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
Thought this was a fairly solid recipe. I'd make it again, but not for company or a special occasion. I omitted the onion as I was out and no pine nuts (allergies). As well, I used whole chicken breasts as opposed to chunks. I had to double the cornstach slurry amounts as my sauce wasn't thickening to my liking (otherwise it would have been quite runny).

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
A great basic roasted asparagus recipe. I added about 2 tbsp of grated parmesan cheese towards the last 5 minutes of roasting. As well, I drizzled the asparagus with a balsamic reduction. An easy recipe: bring 2 cups of balsamic vinegar to a boil and continue to boil until it reduces down to about a half cup (should be syrupy in consistency). It really helps to concentrate the balsamic flavor and looks pretty on the plate (just use a drizzle though or else you could overwhelm the flavor of the asparagus).

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
Excellent recipe that created moist subtle tasting pancakes. Added about a half tsp of nutmeg to the mix. As well, about two ounces less of the pumpkin as recommended. Would definitely make again.

Crispy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Followed the recipe as directed, only adding fresh ginger instead of powdered. Great flavor and I would definitely make again. Also, instead of wasting the orange after using the zest, I added the segmented orange into the beef. Good stuff!
