Grilled Gyro Burgers

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
These are called gyro "burgers", but if you want the meat to have that more traditional "feel", you can either massage the meat for a minute or two (stretching it out and folding it back) or simply running the whole mix through the food processor for 30 seconds or so.

Meatloaf Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Well phew -- someone found a way to get more meat into meatloaf! Seriously, this is now my go-to recipe for meatloaf, and I think I'll feel cheated if I ever skip the ham and cheese. I've been topping it with Dijon mustard and the combination is lovely. I'm thinking to try it next with ground chicken...

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
OK, I saw this recipe this morning, thought about it all day and came home and made it. And it managed to live up to all that expectation! A couple of little tweaks and a twist: I coated the chops in cornstarch (as I'm gluten-free), browned them, moved them aside and then sauted the onions. Then I left the onions on the BOTTOM, put the chops back on, then the potatoes, which I sliced with a mandoline, so they were nice and thin. The whole thing was simply delicious, a perfect late fall hearty dish. Going right into heavy rotation. Thanks for it!

Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
I am definitely on the "awesome" train of thought over this, and I somehow didn't even notice that there was supposed to be bacon in it! My other change, and I highly recommend it when they're in season, is that I substitute fresh peaches for the other fruit. SO good!!

Mary's Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
Embarassing to admit, but I have woken up in the night thinking about this dip. I have now made it several times, always just the way the recipe says. I do cut the cream cheese into little cubes to make their distribution easier, and I just mix the whole mess up with my hands, which leads to one caveat: if you're going to do that, take off your jewellery or you may find yourself explaining to a friend at a baby shower that no, the ring she just found in her snack does not make her the winner of some cute secret game, it just makes her an accomplice to finding the engagement ring that must also be in the dip!! It should be noted that she STILL asked for the recipe.

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
I have made these and they are so good, always get snapped up quickly. One idea: Sometimes I toss in some cumin seeds with the cream cheese mixture and it adds a nice extra flavour.

Asparagus Mousse

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
Wow...um..."light"? Really? With 4 egg yolks and a CUP of butter? Rich, tasty, sure, why not, but this is a pretty indulgent sauce all round.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This really was awfully nice--and I went into it having real trepidation about messing with two beautiful tenderloins. I did toss a minced clove of garlic into the wine/vinegar mix, didn't double anything and was rewarded with a lovely, dark and delicious sauce and perfectly seared meat. Thanks!

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
You know, I'm not crazy about white chocolate, find it too sweet. Not mad about candy canes either. Then a friend turned me on to this stuff last Christmas and I couldn't stop eating it! Everybody got a little bag last year and, if we don't eat it all ourselves, will again this. Pretty, and pretty easy!

Skin-on Savory Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
Even my Irish taste buds declare these so delicious! I was dubious about both the skins and the sour cream, but these were creamy and hearty and just so good. I did skip the basil as I felt it would be in competition with the herbs in the shepherd's pie for which it was a topping, but didn't miss it at all.

Oatsies

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2005
Just discovered these this week when the teacher at my son's nursery school had them make a batch. (Testimony to how easy they are!) So sweet, so good. Only difference was her recipe had her sprinkle the chocolate chips over the oat layer when it was still hot, then go back a few minutes later with a spatula and spread them out. Fun to do, and one less bowl to clean. As for the difficulty presenting: she refrigerated them, then broke them into pieces, sort of like almond bark. One bite and we stopped caring what the heck they looked like anyway.

Tangy Poppy Seed Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
Well, I'm not a fan of fruit salad in general, I had neither a fresh orange nor tinned pineapple, but I also was feeling like all I've been serving for dessert lately is a bowl of one type of fruit per evening. So I made this with a tin of mandarin oranges (forgetting my husband's childhood-bred aversion to them--oops) and fresh pineapple, just squeezing juice out of the rinds into the dressing as I went, and, remembering some of these reviews, jerking my hand back before the whole teaspoon of poppy seeds tumbled in. Oh, also, I had no kiwi, but did toss in about 1/2 pint of fresh blueberries. And it was all terrific! Is it the poppy seeds that make it taste so special? Whatever. I'm thinking of making another to bring to a pool party next week. Katy, you've converted me to a fruit salad fan! Well done!

Jalapeno Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2003
I just love this recipe (wrapping anything in bacon appeals wildly to me). I use a whole jalapeno, split and seed it, stuff with cream cheese and then reassemble. Never thought of using salad dressing to marinate before--it feels like cheating, but it sure turns out well and the results are great. Add some bagels to your shopping list and you can use the leftover bacon and cream cheese for, well, cream cheese and bacon bagels...mmmmmmmm.

Best Moist Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2003
Man, does this make a lot of batter! I ended up with 48 mini cupcakes AND an 8 X 8 sheet cake. Having tasted a cupcake or two first, I threw a big handful of chocolate chips onto the batter of the sheet cake and found I liked it better. Topped it with cream cheese frosting and drizzled chocolate spiders on top of that. Even with those add-ons, I could detect so-so cake beneath.

Lollipop Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2003
Made these for my little guy's second birthday and they were a big success. The dough was a little crumbly to work with, but eventually I got the hang of it and they turned out swell. I used coloured craft sticks and wrote names on the handles which then served as nametags on the lootbags I stuffed them into. I used the idea of rolling them in coloured sugar and they really were cute--and pretty delicious.

Corned Beef Hash Cakes

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
I liked this much better than the homemade corned beef hash I made recently. Liked them even better when I made a few additions--a good shake of Cajun seasoning, a couple of cloves of garlic (minced, thrown in toward the end of the onion cooking) and about 2/3 cup corn. With a nice salad, it was a quick and delicious meal.

Cranberry Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2002
Like the setup of an old joke, these tasted great but looked awful. I made them for a potluck, and had visions of tidy little squares, but they were (for me) impossible to cut into anything other than crumbly clumps. However, they were delicious, easy to make and garnered lots of compliments. I imagine they'd be great served warm with some vanilla ice cream.

Belgian Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2002
This is a tasty, rather decadent stew. Another similar recipe suggested topping it with Dijon-smeared pieces of french bread, which was yummy and might offset the "soupy" concern some have.
