President Ford's Braised Eye Round Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Very good, simple and delicious. Be sure to simmer it low and for a long time or it might end up tough....mine was O.K...but could have been more tender if I had let it go longer than the recipe instructs. I am thinking about trying it in the crockpot next time.

Chicken Gruyere with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
A weeknight favourite for us. The gruyere cheese is imperative....don't try to substitute any other cheese, or it will be bland and lack the nutty flavor that makes this recipe so tasty.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
We love this recipe at our house, simple to make with exotic flavors. I usually add lemongrass...or a little bit of lime juice to add some sour to the mix...this is essential to balance the sweet of the coconut milk and sugar.

Depression Era Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
I forgot I found this recipe on this site...because I have been using it for so long it has become like my own!!!! It really is "depression era" in that is saves money with not having to buy meat, but fills the stomach and satisfies everyone. I have to admit....I usually add shredded cheese and crumbled bacon to it when I serve. Make sure to taste it and add plenty of salt to taste...that's the key. Thank you...this has become a traditional family dish.

Chutney Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This is now a part of our regular meal cycle. It is sooo easy and so flavorful. I followed other reviewer's advice and used Trader Joes mango ginger chutney. I serve it with T. Joes Naan bread...and whatever rice or veg. I have on hand. My husband requests it at least once a week. I use breast tenders instead of thighs. Thanks for such an easy and delicious recipe with flair!!

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This is a favourite staple now in our house. The kids like it too. I also tested using light coconut milk, like another reviewer and didn't notice the difference in taste. My secret ingredient is a little dash of brown sugar to soften the sour of the lime. If you do this the flavors will come out and the dish won't taste one dimesional. I also add a few red pepper flakes and let my husband add more at the table so that it's not too hot for the kids. I may try a little bit of chile garlic paste next time. I also like to cut my chicken while it's partially frozen, so that I can cut it thin like they do in the Thai restaurants. This is an awesome and EASY recipe that comes really close to the original! If you like Thai flavors you will not be disappointed.

Central American Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I have made this recipe several times. I think it is supposed to be a bit "bland." My husband says it reminds him of the street vendor food in the Dominican Republic where he lived for a short time. They often incorporated ground meat and potatoes into their fare. The only reason I gave it a four star rating is because it is a rather time intensive recipe. I do add less potatoes than called for and watch them carefully so that they aren't over done. I tend to season my meat generously anyway, so that wasn't a problem. My kids liked this too...but the tomatillo sauce was a bit much for their palates so they didn't have it with theirs.

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
This was really good. I still like our recipe that has saurkraut and tomatoes and onions on top of the pork chops better because of the flavor, but this was a good change up. I browned the pork chops and then put everything in a baking dish and put it in the oven for an hour at 350 degrees. I also deglazed the pan that I used to brown the pork chops, with the beef bouillon and added a bay leaf while it simmered. My kids liked it much better than our saurkraut version....especially the potatoes..yummy.

Baked Chicken and Brie

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
This is now a staple in our house. I do add tomato and basil leaves at the end, like someone suggested. Without that it might be bland. Anyway...thanks for the recipe it's easy and elegant!!

Chicken Fiesta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I'm giving this a four because it just seemed to lack a little something. It was good...but we had to add sour cream, or dressing...and that wasn't quite it either. Maybe it needed a little kick of heat? Overall..pretty easy and good.

Bacon Jack Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
This was an instant favourite. My husband said this was a keeper, and I even got my mother's approval who was in town visiting. The honey mustard sauce is key!! Simple, easy and more delicious than anything you could eat out and buy.

Amber's Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
I think I did something wrong. Maybe I didn't heat the oil hot enough because the flour coating on the chicken turned into a gooey cakey mess....rather than frying or adhering to the chicken. The whole thing turned out weird. The flavors were good but the instructions on the recipe did not adequately describe how to cook it.

Oaxacan Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
This recipe was amazing. It was so easy and so good. My husband said it tasted just like something from a small taqueria. My kids really liked it too..I just left the jalapeno's out of their. I followed the recipe to a tee...and will definitely make this one again.

Flank Steak Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
I'm not sure what went wrong with this recipe. The time that it said to cook...and the degrees...seemed a little rare for my tastes....but by the time it was cooked it seemed really tough and I couldn't seem to keep the "pinwheels" from coming undone and falling apart. I wondered if maybe I pounded the meat too much in the beginning?....anyway...it was such a disaster I probably will not attempt this one again.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
I agreed with the other reviewers, this recipe was a lot of work...for a fairly bland dish. I also had problems with the cabbage falling apart and getting mushy. I somehow think that this recipe is not condusive to cooking in a slow cooker.

Easy Slow Cooker Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
This recipe was one of the best slow cooker recipes I have ever tried. The flavors were exquisite and the meat was extremely tender. We didn't even have enough leftover for sandwiches. We picked it clean!! This will definitely be a staple in our house from now on, especially because it was relatively inexpensive as well as delicious.

Baked Brie with Pesto and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
this recipe was good...I used pesto in a jar and omitted the oil since it was already mixed in. Maybe I didn't cook it long enough because it was a little hard to dip into...and yet slid off the knives we were using. All around really good...I would make it again.

Roasted Garlic

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
We had a progressive dinner in our neighborhood and I was on appetizer duty. This recipe was just great because it was so easy...non stress...and everybody loved it. I served it with crackers and french bread. I am thinking about making it to go along with dinner some night...because it was so easy and good.

Cherry Tomatoes Filled with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
We had a progressive dinner in our neighborhood, and I was first in line. These were the hit of the day. Everybody ate them...and I was almost afraid I didn't have enough. I did what some other people said and omitted the salt in the filling, but put them on a bed of kosher salt to keep them standing. I also did one batch with gorgonzola cheese...they were also delicious. I also followed advice and use a melon scooper. Super easy!!
