Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2014
Easiest and most delicious recipe I've ever made. I used half the mushrooms called for. The recipe scales down well, for those looking for less than 6 servings. I served it with a reverse seared steak and grilled asparagus, best side ever. Going to make it right now because I've been craving it!!

Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
A good base recipe but you really need a higher heat to get them to "pop". Use pan drippings when they are available. If using butter, definitely add salt to the batter. I use a 400 degrees F oven or hotter. Pull them out when they're brown, cook time will be shorter.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
FOOL. PROOF. Make sure the butter is not hot or it will curdle the eggs. Warm is fine.

Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2014
I made two changes: butter instead of margarine and demerara sugar instead of white sugar for dipping the cookies. Mixed up the recipe and flattened out the cookie before baking, so they might've been a little bigger than they were meant to be. Perfect cookies!! They looked and tasted so good. I just ate 3.

Chinese Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2013
The man made this recipe so it was extra delicious since I didn't lift a finger. We used different veggies that we had on hand. The marinade/sauce is delicious!

Christmas Pinwheel Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
These instructions for the cookie are okay but tedious when they shouldn't be and lax when they should be tedious. In my opinion there is no need to sift and resift, a good stir to mix the dry ingredients well is enough. I think brown sugar is useless and makes things harder. My tips for this recipe would be: Roll the rectangles out between waxed/parchment paper and keep them in the fridge for 30 minutes THEN put them on top of each other. Roll into the log and refrigerate overnight before trying to slice them. There is no need to place them on a lightly floured surface, the wax/parchment paper should prevent sticking as you cut them. To make one half chocolate, just mix in 1/4 cup cocoa powder. There's no need to melt and cool chocolate...what a waste. To the white half you can add 1/3 cup almond flour, ground almonds or a teaspoon of peppermint essence.

Tina's Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
One of the cookies we made for Christmas. Absolutely easy and delicious. The only changes I made was omitting the walnuts (allergies) and using mini chocolate chips instead of regular sized ones. These were the best shortbread I've ever made and require no cornstarch or icing sugar (which most stores were out of come Dec. 23rd!).

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2013
I prefer to use only jarred pasta sauce with mine instead of tomato paste and jarred sauce, so the recipe as written is only 3 stars. Here's a tip for oddly shaped crock pots. Soak your lasagna noodles in hot tap water for 2 minutes, drain and use immediately (or they will stick together). This makes them more pliable and easier to fit the exact shape of your crockpot. I find breaking them sometimes breaks the whole noodle into shards and that's no fun!

Easy Southern Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
Tried this recipe since I had run out of butter and eggs but really needed to make biscuits. Absolutely delicious and easy. I guess there's a reason to keep mayo in my fridge now.

Broccoli Mac and Cheese with Bacon and Potato Nugget Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
This recipe is a fine basic but be warned it is NOT at all flavourful the way it is written. Use your own spices and herbs and don't bother with the adobo. As other reviews say, mix everything in a bowl before you put it in the dish BUT (a big but) wait until everything has cooled to room temp. There is nothing worse than scrambled eggs and curdled milk. Forget about the butter, reserve a tablespoon of the bacon grease the way nature intended. To send this recipe to the next level double the bacon and arrange a layer of fresh whole spinach leaves on top of the macaroni, then add the final cheese layer. I grated a little fresh parmesan on top after it came out of the oven. Fabulous!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Instead of finely minced garlic I just added garlic powder to taste. The minced, uncooked garlic is too bitter for me. If you prefer to use fresh garlic without it being extremely bitter - cut garlic clove in half and take out the middle part that comes out easily. To make the guacamole less watery: 1. salt the onions and set aside because it leeches out the water. Drain when you're ready to add to everything else. 2. Cut the tomatoes in half at the equator and squeeze out the pulp. Dice as usual.

Cajun Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
We made this one awhile back, but just noticed I didn't review it. Very delicious for a chicken burger (which I usually hate). We tried the same stuff except with beef and it's just as good.

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
The dreaded substitution list: hot italian sausages, whole can drained diced tomatoes (about 4x what is called for in the recipe), added bacon instead of butter for some nice fats and parboiled rice. I didn't have to cook it for 45 minutes to get the rice cooked, which is a blessing on a busy night. Followed everything else to a T. Even if the bottom burns a LITTLE it adds a very nice caramelized, spicy flavour to the dish.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Both my SO and I loved this dish. It was very simple to make and even the cheap balsamic worked just fine. We bought chicken with bone in and we butchered butchering it, so we cubed the chicken. Still excellent and I'd probably make it with cubed chicken instead of the whole breast.

Kung Wow Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
Wonderful with chicken. Horrible if you substitute for beef. Requires a little extra effort and make sure to prep all ingredients and components BEFORE cooking.

Cinnamon Mocha Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Made a few modifications based on other people's comments. 1) I don't like icing, so I completely omitted the three ingredients. 2) I used sour cream instead of buttermilk. 3) double the cinnamon, since my powdered cinnamon is kind of old and not as potent. The recipe makes 12 cupcakes, not 8 as stated. The cupcakes are DELICIOUS, even without frosting! There's no real coffee flavour...I believe it just adds moisture to the cake so they're moist and fluffy. Without the frosting each cupcake is only 127 calories!!

Biscotti

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Excellent. I used artificial vanilla essence because that's all I have, but SO DELICIOUS OH MY GOODNESS! And so easy too! Now I see the overpriced at fancy coffee stores and laugh so hard on the inside.
