Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Recipe is great as is. The only thing I didn't have was the evaporated milk, so I used the same amount of buttermilk instead. Made a very rich and creamy soup that was perfect for a cold day. Update: Froze some from the last batch that I made and it freezes well too. I'm about to make a quadruple batch on this cold and rainy day to use up some squash and to fill up the freezer with good soup.

Get a Husband Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I made this in the crock pot. It was quite runny after a few hours so when I added the corn, I put the crock on high and took the lid off for the last hour. This stew came out great but be warned, it makes a lot. Almost overflowed my large crock.

Brazilian Fish Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I followed this recipe almost to the letter, only substituting sockeye salmon for the fish. Lovely, light flavour. I would add some hot chilis or something for more heat next time but since this had to be kid pleasing, it was fine as is.

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
A great recipe. I followed the suggestions of other reviewers and used half the sugar with the peaches and only 1 cup of water with the butter. Turned out great, although, I did cook it for closer to 80 minutes but that could just be my oven. I used 3 very large peaches (probably about 4-5 cups sliced) and that was just about right.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
These are okay, not the bubbly light crepes that I'm used to but they are definately thinner than regular pancakes. I will keep searching for the right, light mixture.

Grandma Jeanette's Amazing German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This is just like the description. Yummy, sweet and sour and easy to make! It is great warm and just cooked or cold from the fridge after a few days. A great use for red cabbage. This recipe doesn't need any modifications.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
This recipe is just right as is. Moist and flavourful. I did have to cook it about 30 min. longer to get the knife to come out clean but that is my oven and no fault of the recipe. This is going to be my "go to" zucchini recipe. I'll try adding some chocolate next time.

Delicious Greens and Ham

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Very good and the first time I've ever cooked turnip tops. I used a can of stewed tomatoes as I didn't have just plain diced. Nice, ripe and juicy fresh tomatoes would definately be welcome in this dish.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
I'm not a cornbread expert but to me this turned out. Rose well and was hearty but not too heavy. A bit on the sweet side.

Dilled Fall Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
I like tart, but this was a bit too much. As already stated, use a bit less lemon juice.

Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
A very forgiving recipe. I didn't have walnuts or apples and doubled up on the grated carrot instead. Turned out very well.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2010
A no fuss frozen treat. I will try using real whipped cream next time as I don't like to use "edible oil products". I hope it will still turn out. Update Sept. 2010, I just tried this with real whipped cream and it is even better.

Slow Cooker Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
A great recipe. I used onion powder instead of the real thing as I have a picky child who can spot a piece of onion that even the keenest onion hater would miss.(perhaps he will become some kind of phorensic detective in adult life). In any case, this was the perfect family fare recipe. Tasty and creamy and can even stand alone as a main dish. The only thing I did was to leave the lid off on high for about 30 min. to thicken up the sauce a little. The recipe also should say to slice the potatoes as thin as possible in order for every piece to be fully cooked.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: May 29, 2010
Great flavour combination. I reduced the amount of meat by a third to fit the size of my family and used bison instead of the beef. We really like the subtle flavour of bison and it is so much lower in fat. I just eye-balled the rest of the spices which weren't reduced by that much. Everyone in the house really enjoyed these burgers. I didn't tell the kids about the blue cheese. Next time I'll make the full recipe and freeze the burgers for another bbq day.

Dale's Lamb

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
I made this with a 3 pound deboned, rolled shoulder roast and it came out great. I eye-balled the measurements and cut the sauce down by about 1/3. Nice to have the added sauce. Served it with a bag of German spaetzle that I picked up to try with it. It was perfect for the sauce. Served this also with a big bowl of lighty steamed fresh green beans. A wonderful dinner. On our bbq it did take at least an hour more than stated to get to the 145 degrees.

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
Not a "snap" cookie at all as they are soft in the middle and only a little crunchy on the outside. if you need the "snap" then this is not the recipe. I used a little less oil and a little more flour. They turned out just like the picture and lasted only a few hours in my house. A big hit!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I don't know about the "best in existence" but it certainly is good. We used this on strip loin steaks. I marinated them all day. I didn't bother pre-mixing but just put everything in a ziplock bag and shook it up with the meat. The flavours are strong but we enjoyed the combination.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I agree with the others. This is a "to die for" chocolate cake. Paired up with my Grandma's Special Have Faith Icing, it is perfect!

Teriyaki Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
This is one of the few slow cooker recipes that I have ever tried that did not produce tasty and tender meat. To be fair, I did use a pork loin roast as it was what was on sale at the grocers. I cooked it on low for about 8 hours. The meat was hard and dry. Not nice at all and the sauce was very salty. I used Kikkoman teriyaki marinade sauce. Measured everything carefully and followed the recipe to the letter. I will not use this one again.

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
This is absolutely the best Irish Stew recipe I've tried, and I've tried quite a few. The only changes I made were to cut the recipe in half (wish I hadn't as it was sooo good though) and to use 1 cup of Guinness beer instead of the white wine. I also did this in the crock pot. So easy! I might try to incorporate some pearl barley in there next time as my former favourite recipe uses it. Now my only problem will be to find a big enough crock.
