Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
Made this as per the recipe. This was nice but the balsamique was overpowering ...and we love balsamic vinegar. I'll try this again with some adjustments.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
Tried this recipe as written. If was good but the steak was bland. Needs something to make the steak have some taste. My hubby and I didn't find it absorbed any of the sauce's flavour. The sauce itself was nice on rice. I'll try this again but add something(a rub on the steak or an extra spice of some sort)to try and give the steak a boost.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
I made this exactly as per the recipe to be able to review it fairly. We found this very bland but I think with some tweaks mentioned in other reviews, it could be a good starting point. As it is you could taste the lemon mildly but not much else. It needs more flavour.

Oven Fresh Seasoned Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Loved these! Even my kids who aren't potato lovers (weird, I know) gobbled them up! Made them exactly like the recipe is written and baked them on stoneware.

Limehouse Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
This tasted ok but wasn't a hit with the kids. The taste of the lime was a bit much. May try it again but reduced the lime content.

French Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
Tasted good but was very, very dense. I proofed the yeast (5tsps.) with 1/2 cup water and 1 tbps of sugar. Followed the recipe from there but reduced flour to 5 cups. The dough just never seemed to rise after the first round.

Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
Made this exactly as written. Cooked for 6 hours on low. It was FANTASTIC! The kids gobbled it down and my eldest asked to have some for his school lunch the next day (to my hubby's disappointment...he was looking forward to bringing it for his work lunch). This one will be put in our permanent recipe book!

Bacon Appetizer Crescents

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
I've made these just spreading Herb and Garlic Philadelphia cream cheese and cooked, chopped bacon inside. Everyone always asks for more. I'vd never heard about making it with onions ect...I'll have to give that a try!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Loved the sauce! Made this sauce as written other than the red pepper flakes...used 1/8 tsp of hot sauce instead. Served it over chicken instead of sausage. My 3 fussy kids (2, 4 & 5) gobbled it up! Hubby loved it. Was great with a nice glass of pino grigio. 2nd try: added some Kraft Philedelphia Herb & Garlic cream cheese melted on top of the chicken...to die for with this sauce!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Wasn't bad but nothing to rave about. Followed the recipe but added 1/4 cup of water and a tbs honey, cooked for 4 hours on low. Very dry. Kids wouldn't eat it and they aren't picky eaters. This one unfortunately won't make it in my recipe book.

Pollo Mediterranean

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Very nice dinner! Even my 4 year old love it...he asked to have the leftovers for his school lunch tomorrow. We found it salty though so next time I'll omit the salt.

Baked French Fries II

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
These tasted ok but not as good as they smelled. Next time I'll try to add something extra to kick up the flavour.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
Made these for a mommies that came for a playdate with their kids...moms and kids loved these muffins! I only did 1/8 cup of poppy seeds, added 1tbsp lemon extract, put the lemon zest in the mix and didn't bother with the sugar and lemon juice glaze. They all want the recipe and asked for me to make more at our next playgroup date.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
My first attempt at making bread...and success! This recipe was easy to make (my 4 year old even helped), and it turned out beautifully! My hubby has never seen me so excited "Look! the bread actually rose!). I wasn't sure about putting the yeast into the full amount of water and sugar as the packaging instructed to proof it in only 1/4 cup of water with 1 tsp sugar, but it worked. I kept the dough in the oven with a hot bowl of water on the bottom rack to help make it rise faster. I'll be making this bread again, maybe getting adding some rosemary, cinnamon or other herbs and spices to change things up a bit.
