Grandma's Rhubarb Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2003
Excellent dessert!! I spent the day at my mothers house on Friday helping her bake. (My brothers new girlfriend was flying in and staying for a few days!) Mom has loads of frozen rhubarb in her freezer from last summer that needs to be used up so I thought I'd put a dent in it with this recipe. Wow, was it ever a hit...even with non rhubarb lovers!! One thing I would suggest though concerns the method of making the "custard". Instead of mixing the egg yolks with the flour, mix them first with the sugar, than the milk, than beat in the flour. If you mix the ingredients in the order described in the method you will end up with hard little pieces of egg/flour, making your custard mixture grainy.Just thought I'd offer a hint!! To all of you who have a rhubarb patch and are always on the hunt for new rhubarb recipes...you've just gotta try this one!!! Thanks a bunch Patty!

Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2003
This was a nice easy supper. I think next time I'll use cubed chicken breast meat though. It's a personal preference but ground beef paired with creamy sauces aren't my favorite. I served this with salsa which really helped to cut the richness in taste.

Taco Seasoning II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2003
Great! I was making a casserole that required taco seasoning and I didn't have any on hand...and once again Allrecipes came to the rescue!! This is very very close to packaged taco seasoning. The only change I made was to add salt, and than it was perfect. Remember though, this is only good if your spices are fresh and aromatic. Thanks Waco Kid for a helpful and economical recipe!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
Excellent rice! I've been using this recipe for months now,since finding it last summer, and thought it high time I write a review! This recipe is extremely versatile and lends itself to many substitutions, as long as you keep the rice and liquid measures the same. I just love it! It's so easy, bursting with flavour and a much nicer addition to a meal than boring old potatoes or plain rice. Thanks Sandy!

Spicy Onion Rings

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
I tried this because I had a craving for onion rings but didn't have any beer or soda water to make beer battered traditional style onion rings. Anyway, these are pretty good! Mind you I didn't follow this to a tee. I used cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs, and omitted the pepper flakes, oregano and basil. They turned out light and crispy, with a little zing from the cayenne. Thanks Luna.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
This is how I plan to do my pork chops from now on! I've never been fond of pork chops because no matter how careful I am, they always taste dry to me...but not with this recipe. Tender, juicy and flavourful that about sums this one up!!

Melt In Your Mouth Toffee

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
Wonderful! Tastes EXACTLY like a Skor bar if you use milk chocolate chips instead of semi sweet(and omiting the nuts). I tried this 3 times before I finally managed to get it right. I've discovered that my new stove with its ceramic top is not as condusive to candy making because it holds the heat more and even when I was cooking on medium heat, it seemed more like high...anyway, I didn't give up and I'm sure glad I didn't because friends and family are astounded by the taste of this recipe. Thanks Ruth!!

Wonton Wrappers

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
What a FUN and fabulous recipe!! I was sooo impressed with how these fried up! Restaurant quality indeed. One suggestion though... when working with the dough be sure to keep the extra dough balls moist under a damp towel, it will be much more pliable this way. Thanks Stephen.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2003
I don't usually take the time to make pancakes on Saturday mornings, but I had a craving for them this morning. Just wanted to say these are great tasting pancakes, and the only change I made was to add another tbsp of sugar. Thanks Verona.

Halushki

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2003
I was surprised that although simple, this dish was also very delicious, haertwarming and satisfying. I live in Nova Scotia, and we are having the worst winter in years here, and I havn't been making it to the grocery store as regularly as usual on account of all the snow storms. Therefor I've been on the hunt for recipes that have ingredients in them that I have on hand. I halved this recipe and added quite a bit of onion and garlic powder and s&p. I also added a few dashes of vinegar when I deglazed the pan. I cooked this according to taste as the recipe indicates, and the finished product was very delicious. This type of dish is very different from my usual style of cooking, but my husband devoured two heaping platefuls, and my 4 year old ate her portion too (no small miracle!)My husband said to give this 5 stars, and I heartily second that! Thanks Kris for a nice change.

Cabbage on the Grill

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2003
This is one of the best ways I've ever eaten cabbage. We ate this numerous times after finding this recipe last summer. This has become one of my favorite BBQ sides. It cooks quite qickly, so be sure to watch that it doesn't burn. Also, be sure to add butter or margerine, it's what makes this!

Cherry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2003
I'm baffled as to why this doesn't work out for some people.I made 5 of these for a potluck dinner (I was resposible for bringing all the dessert) and I needed something very quick and very easy to throw together. I bought pre made graham cracker crusts,and a few different varieties of toppings, and was able to whip this up in batches in my food processor in about 20 minutes. I stuck them in the fridge for about 12 hours, and I had a dessert that everybody thought I slaved over and looked and tasted great! I'm wondering if people may have decreased the lemon juice. This is an integral part to the taste and the consistency of this cheesecake. It takes care of that sweetened condensed milk taste too!! Anyway, thanks LJ for an easy dessert!

Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2003
We're snowed in here and I havn't been to the grocery store in a few days, and I desperately needed something for breakfast. Found this recipe and had all the ingredients, so I thought I'd give it a try. It is indeed easy, but I found them to be too salty. The next time I make these I'll only use a pinch of salt as opposed to 1/2 tsp. I also added 1/3 cup of packed brown sugar instead of 1/4 c of white sugar. I also added raisins, allspice and cinnamon. When I mixed the wet and dry ingredients together the mixture was too dry and not like a muffin batter, so I added a 1/2 c more milk. AFTER all these changes I had a muffin that looks good , but the flavour still needs to be "kicked up a few notches".I'll keep experimenting with this one.

Sunshine Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
This is one of those recipes that I can count on to work every time! The ingredients are usually in my pantry, and the ease of throwing this together can't be beat! From experience I can tell you that the best cut of meat to use with this is boneless skinless thighs. I find the regular thighs with the skin on are just too fatty, and the skin doesn't get crispy. Another variation I use is pork chops.

Busy Day Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2003
Quick and easy? Yes. Delicious? Not exactly. I followed this recipe to a tee, and felt that overall, it seriously lacks in flavour.

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2003
If I could give this recipe 10+ stars I would! A few months ago I made the "clone of a Cinnabon" recipe from this web site, and at the time I said that I would only use that recipe from thereon. That is...until I discovered this recipe over the weekend.What caught my eye was the addition of the pudding mix to the dough. Anyway, I gave it a try, and I am converted to this recipe. I used to live near a mall that had a Cinnabon outlet, and I became a cinnabon addict (truly!) The other clone recipe, although very good, wasn't quite it. Now that I have this one I am in heaven!!! If you closed your eyes and did a taste test with a real cinnabon and this recipe, you most definately would not be able to tell them apart! I havn't made the icing for these yet (I've run out of vanilla), but they almost don't need it. The buttery, sugary, gooiness of the filling turns into a gorgeous glaze. My husband wants me to start selling these, and he swore he did not like cinnamon buns! Tania, you said these have a distinctive taste, and you're absolutely right! A million thanks!

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2003
Made this yesterday for a VERY tasty supper! I Don't own a slow cooker so I used one of my corning ware casserole dishes and put the roast in the oven for 8 hours at 250 degrees. It worked marvelously! Instead of beer I used red wine. (Ancient Coast's Baco Noir, for any of you Canadian reviewers who are looking for an excellent red!) I also added a tbsp of worcestershire, some onion and garlic powder and some thyme. We used hot buttered and oven toasted baguette for the sandwhiches, and broiled some sliced mozarella on top. A true taste sensation, and although frenh dip is not truly authentic french fare, my French Canadian husband gave this 10 stars! Bon Appetit!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
I used my usual "concoction" when making my meatballs and used the sauce from this recipe. The next time I make this I will use less vinegar, as I found it a little tart. UPDATE: Made this again last week for seven of us and used half the vinegar. It was delicious, and is the recipe my mom says she wants to use from now on.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
Delicious, and like many reviewers already stated, very much like a box mix. Mine turned out perfectly, and that's even after I discovered I had run out of butter and had to do half butter half oil for the batter. I havn't made the icing yet, and probably won't, as these have that "crunchy" crust on top. Once again another successful recipe.

Bread Pudding I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2003
I made this a few weeks ago for some surprise dinner guests ( I didn't have anything for dessert) and it turned out very well. I didn't make any alterations or substitutions, and the end result was a very moist, delicious bread pudding. I served this with a brown sugar sauce from this site and a dollop of vanilla ice cream. My guests really enjoyed this, and my husband who dilikes any dessert that does not have chocolate in it, had two servings.
