Cream of Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Lots of changes to this but still really good base. I don't believe in the "M" word so I used butter. There must have been an omission of the garlic so I added four cloves. I used homemade chicken stock without the bouillon cubes. We don't cook with salt and that is all they tend to add to your cooking. Added the tips after the 20 min boil along with four large chopped mushrooms. In each bowl we added another teaspoon of butter and served it with homemade marjoram bread. The perfect easy dinner. Great blend of celery, garlic, onion, and asparagus. It also helped to use organic asparagus that was the best we had ever tasted. On the table was pepper and sea salt for those that needed more of either.

Honey Graham Crackers

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
I like this one for two reasons. They are a great snack with a little butter spread on them and they are good for using as graham crumbs. The only suggestion I have is to age them a couple days before using them.

Creamy Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: May 29, 2006
So take this recipe and half it. Keep the yolk amount correct for a full recipes worth. Perfect amount of lemon this way,nice and thick. Keep heat very low. If it starts to curdle add another yolk, it worked for me.

Czech Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
This is a great recipe. It would be improved on only by the addition of garlic. Never pureed the sauce and was still good with roasted garlic mashed potatoes.

Green Bean and Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
Good way to get a potato salad without the chance of getting sick from it sitting out for long. It has good flavour and definitely needs to sit overnight for the flavours to blend. The only change was to add a little extra garlic. I gave it only four stars because I did find one better potato salad recipe here, but this one still is nice.

Pear Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
This is a great recipe base. I threw cored, peeled and halved pears into a crock pot and left alone for 12 hours;then a submersible blender went in. Four ten pounds whole pear I used 1/2 tsp nutmeg, zest and juice of a large orange and a cup sugar (don't like sweet preserves). Cooked it for another 12 hours and added a cup of peach puree. I will definitely be making this again.

Roasted Veggies with Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
I used this as a base and made many changes. The reviews stated this as bland so I tried to add flavour in many ways. I added 5 cloves of garlic, snow peas, onion, and the red pepper. It was stir fried in a mix of olive oil, butter and sesame oil. After it was cooked I added twice the amount of balsamic vinegar. The couscous was cooked in beef broth . The veggies had a lot of flavour but the couscous itself was still bland.

Blueberry Flax Pancakes

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Didn't have flax meal so I used seeds. Not so good. Let then stand for 10 minutes or so before starting to cook them and they come out fluffier. Used maple pecan butter to top with; yum!

Applesauce Brownies I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
Several changes to this recipe 1/4 cup each oil and butter. 1 tsp Almond extract. 1/4 cup cocoa powder. I also did 3/4 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown which gives it a nice flavour as well as cuts down on the sugar. Next time I will cut it even more sugar as these still were quite sweet. 2 Tbsps Chia seeds and greased my pan with coconut oil. I will also try adding flax seeds instead of Chia for the health addition. Baked for 45 minutes. They were cake like on the first day and more like a brownie the next day. I did put the nuts and chips in the batter wich I prefer.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2006
This recipe will be much better after a few changes. I did add extra cocoa powder which helped however next time I will use only high quality powder like Droste. The pudding is a bit too sweet for our tastes so I will cut down on the sugar. Not fantastic but definite potential.

Walnut Raisin Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2006
You know it's a good recipe when all reviews don't change anything. I am big on changing up recipes but this is perfect the way it is. Served with maple butter or jam and tea.

Shoyu Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Tried this without changing much. Marinated for about six hours and grilled. Careful when grilling as it burns very easy. Will definitely be doing again.

Craving Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
Not crazy about these......would make banana bread to get the same effect and it would taste better. I still give it three stars since I didn't put the chips in it but used cocoa powder instead. Next time my over-ripe bananas will be used for something else......not that thet tasted bad just not worth the time

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Best bread I ever made. FIL has a standing order when I make this, so I always double the recipe. Makes for great french toast.
