Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2003
Oh My God! This was absolutely delicious! I found that mine burned around the edges so I'll have to play around with the baking time. I also found that semi-sweet chips over-powered the pecans so I tried milk chocolate chips and toasted chopped almonds for the perfect match. I sprinkled the chips and nuts at the same time, waited a couple of minutes and then spread the melted chocolate with the nuts so that the nuts wouldn't fall off.

Creamy Scallop Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2005
Thank goodness I read the reviews first and learned that you really can't go wrong with this recipe! I didn't have any milk, mushrooms or swiss cheese on hand so I used evaporated milk, creamed corn and diced potato, carrot and red pepper for colour. I used grated Fontina cheese and blended it right into the soup. I did need to add a bit of water to thin it bit. Then I threw in some fresh chives and thyme near the end. The result? A wonderful tasting and colourful chowder!

Chickpea and Quinoa Salad with Lemon and Tahini

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
I loved this salad! Added some chopped red pepper for colour. Also used a 19 oz can of chickpeas instead of going to the trouble of cooking dried chickpeas.

Streusel Apple Coffeecake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2003
This was excellent! Way better than store bought. It tastes like there's apple pie filling in the middle. I used margarine because that's what I had on hand. I also used two 9x5 loaf tins because I don't have a bundt pan and baked for an hour. I found the walnuts slightly bitter so next time I'll use pecans.

Chocolate Dipped Bing Cherries

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
After reading the reviews about the difficulty in pitting the cherries, I decided to simply melt chocolate and dip the cherries in them, skipping the whole sugar and vanilla extract part. They tasted great! I used milk chocolate on half and then tried semi-sweet on the other half. I liked the milk chocolate better while my boyfriend liked both equally. Yes, you do have to spit out the pit this way, but it wasn't a big deal for us.

Michelle's Zesty Hummus-like Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2003
This was delicious! I used 2 different types of salad dressing (to finish up the bottles), one of which had roasted garlic in it (so I omitted the garlic powder), the other was a balsamic vinagrette. I found that the salad dressing made the dip too sour, so I blended the whole red pepper instead of just 1/2 and it was perfect (with a nice slightly sweet taste). I also omitted the sesame seeds since I didn't have any. My husband *hates* hummus, but liked this one as you could not taste the chickpeas. This is a versatile dip, you can make all kinds of adjustments to your liking.

Fennel and Watercress Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
This was excellent! I live by myself so I actually made 1/6 of the recipe. Makes quite a bit for a single gal but I kept the dressing in a jar instead of putting it all on the salad as I knew I'd be eating it the next day.

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2005
This is a heavenly dish! I have never cooked a lamb leg before and this was outstanding! My husband was very, very impressed. I added 2 cups of water to the bottom of the pan as suggested by others, cooked it at 400F covered for 20 min. and then at 350F for 1 hr 45 min, turning the meat over every 15-20 min. I did not tent it with foil since the baking dish came with a lid. For gravy, I added a bit of red wine and some corn starch mixed with water. The gravy was delicious but a little too strong tasting so next time I will water it down some. Excellent over mashed potatoes. I'm curious to try it next time with lemon juice and balsamic vinegar in the marinade, openning the leg up and putting the marinade in the middle, marinating for 2 days instead of 1 and then tying up the leg before baking. What can I say, I read a lot of the reviews and plan to combine several of the great ideas submitted by others!

Cream of Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2003
This was a really good soup. I changed the procedure, though, since I didn't like the idea of using 2 pots (means there's 2 pots to clean), so I just used 1 pot. I melted margarine and added flour, then added milk a little at a time,stirring to blend. I added water and then some undiluted chicken concentrate and the dried onion. I used pre-washed baby spinach instead of frozen spinach and seasoned with salt and pepper. Then I pureed the mixture using my hand held blender and produced a wonderfully nutritious soup.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2003
This is an incredibly rich tasting soup. Wonderful, interesting flavour with the cream cheese. I only used 1/2 of an 8 oz. block of cream cheese and will try 1/4 or 1/3 next time as I still found it too rich for me. I also cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise and roasted it at 375 F for 45 min. so that I wouldn't have to go through the trouble of peeling and chopping raw butternut squash.

Poppy Seed Bundt Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This was a really good & easy cake to make. I actually made 1/2 and put it in a loaf pan (I just put the package of cake mix on my food scale and dumped out 1/2 the weight into a bowl). I added 1/2 tsp. of lemon extract (and halved the other ingredients). It's not really designed to be a loaf cake as it was extremely moist and fluffy and when slicing sometimes the slices would fall and break in half (usually loaf cakes are firmer). Still, it was very good.

Blueberry Orange Bran Muffin

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
These were very good. I only had 3/4 cup of white flour left so I topped it up with 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour. Would make again.

Filipino Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2010
I thought this was an excellent dish. I used a little over half the meat and just eye balled the veggies. I don't think you can go wrong with this recipe!

Oriental Pork Cabbage Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I thought this was excellent and very homey. I added a pinch of red pepper flakes, a dash of white pepper and also a chopped green onion and 3 minced garlic cloves. I even used olive oil because that's all I had and it still tasted great.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
This recipe is wonderfully easy and very tasty. I used 4 small apples picked from a friend's tree (very tart) plus one large apple from the grocery store (less tart). I followed the suggestion of only using 1 tsp of cornstarch and added a dash of nutmeg. It tasted great with the oatmeal pancakes (also from this site).

Blueberry Crisp II

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
Like many others, I was skeptical about the mayonnaise, but it worked out superbly! A delicious crisp, especially with frozen vanilla yogurt.

Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
This was excellent! Very tasty and the saltiness of the filling from the feta cheese went extremely well with the chicken. It took about 40 minutes to bake, though as the chicken breast halves were quite large.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
Excellent and easy to make! I was very happy with the results. I followed the advice of another and mixed 1/4 cup flour with the apples and then tossed in 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup white sugar along with the cinnamon.
