Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
This was absolutely delicious, with a couple small modifications. Cut the curry powder in half. 1 teaspoon is too strong, half a teaspoon adds just the right amount of "zip". The flavours are really different and untraditional, but so yummy! Also I use flour instead of corn starch, I find it makes a better texture: after cooking the meat and vegetables, add about a third of a cup of flour and stir it in. Then add the liquid. It was so delicious and I will definitely add it to my rotation!

Sweet Potato Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Delicious! The sweet potatoes make it a sweeter tasting chili, which I like for a change. I used lentils instead of black beans, because I always do in chili, and I added some cilantro when adding the meat and lentils, which was yummy. I don't think it needs to cook on high for as long as the recipe says, I turned it down to low after about 3 hours on high and left it on low for the remaining 3 hours, and it definitely was quite well cooked, the sweet potatoes were quite soft.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
This is very yummy! I used skinless boneless chicken breast pieces instead of wings. It would have been better with a thicker sauce, so next time I will definitely try meredith's suggestion to cook the sauce on the stovetop first.

Mom's Baked Egg Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
These are very good. I would definitely recommend cooking them for 14 minutes though. I cooked them for 10, and they appeared done, but the whites of the eggs were still fairly runny. I don't mind runny yolks, but runny whites just isn't right. So next time I will definitely leave them in a few more minutes. But delicious, and a great idea! A little time consuming to prepare though.

Argentinean Chimichurri

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
This was excellent, and super easy to make. It was missing something though to make it more like the Argntinean chimchurri I have had. Possibly cilantro. But I realize there are many different versions of chimichurri, so I don't doubt that this is authentic... just not quite the version I am used to. It's great with steak, or toss it with some chick peas and enjoy!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
This soup was delicious! I was taking a chance by making it because my husband doesn't normally like Italian sausage, and I have a picky toddler. But all of us love it! I made a few substitutions because I was missing the exact ingredients: I used 1 28oz can of diced tomatoes with the juice and a can of Campbell's tomato soup, instead of the fresh tomatoes and tomato sauce; I didn't have any carrots or zucchini but I put in green pepper; I didn't have any wine. It was delicious the way I made it. I'm sure it would be good the original way too, but I can't say for sure which is why I only gave it 4 stars. My version is a 5 star for me!

Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
This is a pretty good recipe, and definitely simple and easy. But don't cook them as long as it says! Probably 15-18 minutes would be better. I cooked them for 20 minutes, and figured I would for sure be safe with the minimum amount of time. But when I took them out of the oven they were way over cooked, on the verge of burnt, and burnt on some of the bottoms. That was pretty disappointing. Though they were still not too bad with some margarine and jam (a bit dry though). I will make these muffins again, but I would definitely never cook them that long again.

Layered Enchilada Bake

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
This was delicious! My husband and I both really liked it. I would have to completely disagree with the reviewers who said the Italian dressing wasn't good in it. It was just fine, and blended in well with the flavours. You can't taste the dressing distinctly, it just adds to the overall flavour. Also I used the exact amount of chili powder in the recipe, and it was perfect. I will be making this again! Hopefully with the black beans next time (didn't have any so made it without them) =)

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
I made this for my parents' 25th anniversary. It was a big hit among the steak lovers in my family. I am not a steak lover, but I really enjoyed the flavour of the sauce. And it was fun to make!

Good Old Meat Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
A simple and tasty recipe for classic homey meatpie. It's also fairly versatile, I often use the same recipe to make chicken pie. Just replace the beef with chicken, and the beef broth with chicken broth, and change up the seasonings a bit. I definitely recommend this recipe.

Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
These are good, but I find I have to simmer for a lot longer than 15 minutes if I don't want the dumplings to be just gooey dough. Still, this is the recipe I always use for dumplings, and my husband loves them.

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
These are great! I love banana muffins, and having some bran in them makes it "feel" healthier. I add chocolate chips... because what's a banana muffin without chocolate chips? =)

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
This is my favorite dish to make. It's a wonderful recipe. Delicious and fairly simple. Just FYI for anyone who wants to make it a little lighter... instead of using heavy cream, I use milk with a heaping tablespoon of flour whisked into it, then once I add it I let it come to a boil to thicken. Works great.

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
I just made this, and it was good but WAY too sweet and rich. Of course I expect cheesecake to be rich, but this was so sweet it hurt my teeth, and everyone had trouble finishing their pieces (which were not really that big). It would have been much better if I had used about half the amount of caramel, or even less. Instead of brownie mix, I made the brownie portion from scratch using a separate recipe for brownies. I cooked it the entire prescribed amount of time, and did not have any problem with it being too hard to cut, as did so many of the other reviewers. That being said, I chilled it overnight, so maybe that helped to put some moisture in it so that it was softer ? Although not hard, the brownie did have a sort of almost burnt taste to it (though it didn't appear burnt). So I would probably want reduce the cooking time somewhat. I still really like the idea of this recipe, and I really enjoyed making it, so I do think I will make it again but with some changes to make it not so terribly sweet. I would probably skip the caramel layer in the middle altogether, and just drizzle some caramel on top. The brownie also may have been a factor in the super-sweetness, so I might look for another brownie recipe that does not use as much sugar.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
This is pretty good. I like the little bit of cumin in it. I use just a pinch of salt, as I don't generally like my foods very salty. Please forgive me ROYHOBBS, but I couldn't find Tahini and in a pinch used almond butter instead. In the past I've also used peanut butter. Both make a pretty good substitute. I know, I know, this is not real hummus when made that way. I am aware of that. But I have also made and eaten 'real hummus' many times, and so I can compare and say it makes a good substitute, though obviously it doesn't quite measure up. I rarely follow recipes to the letter, so I was looking for a good, basic hummus recipe to use as a base and tinker with to my taste. This recipe served excellently for that.

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Love, love, love this soup! I change it up a little bit (not vegetarian), I add chicken to make it more filling (cook it before adding the peppers and onions) and I use fresh peppers and onions instead of frozen. Also I use OXO chicken bouillion powder dissolved in water for the broth, and diced tomatoes instead of crushed. And instead of the green chilies, I use dried red chili peppers. I top it with cheese, sour cream, and green onions. Love the idea of avocados, but just haven't had them on hand.
