Veggies and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2002
My family really liked this recipe. My husband told me that I should definately make this one again. I didn't have any peppers, so I substituted broccoli and used cream of broccoli soup instead of the cream of celery. I tried to make this recipe in a casserole dish instead of the larger baking dish. I don't suggest using a casserole dish because the croutons didn't get crunchy.

Borscht I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2003
This is a very good and hearty soup. My favorite borscht is the one my Grandma used to make. However, her bortsch recipe used a LOT of butter (not margarine) and a LOT of cream. There was one unusual ingredient in my Grandma's borscht, beet tops. I added about 1/2 cup of chopped beet tops to this recipe at the same time as the first amount of cabbage. It was very good. I also diced the beets when cooked and added them back to the stock.

Cheesy Sausage Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2004
When I served this to my husband he said that it looked quite boring, but when he tried it he said that it was awesome. I didn't have processed cheese so I used 1/2 cup cream cheese for a creamy texture and 1/2 cup old cheddar for taste. Since I like things a bit spicy, but only had regular pork sausage, I added a bit of dried red pepper flakes to the meat before cooking. This was a great recipe and now I have another use for all the zucchini in my garden.

Cheese Herb Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2004
We loved this bread. The cheese and herbs gave it a nice subtle flavour. I didn't have marjarom, so I used rosemary instead. I liked the flavour and texture of this bread so much that I decided to make it again without any cheese or herbs. It made an exceptionally good white bread. Thanks for the recipe. It is definately a keeper.

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2005
We loved this bread. Thank you so much for this recipe. I have tried a few other whole wheat recipes before and either they didn't rise or I didn't like the flavour. I prefer to bake my bread in the oven, and this recipe was perfect for that. Even though the recipe yield is for a 1.5 lb. loaf, I divided it into two. After rising for an hour, I baked it at 375 degrees for 30 minutes and my end result was two perfect loaves of bread. The flavour was great and the texture was light and fluffy. I will definately be making this my new whole wheat bread recipe and I won't be changing anything.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: May 21, 2005
This recipe was awesome. I made it for my inlaws last night and everyone raved about it. I did make a couple of changes. I used three chicken breasts instead of one, and I only used 2 tsp. of red curry paste. Even with only 2 tsp. the dish was still plenty hot. Next time I make this, I will substitute shrimp for the chicken for a change. Thanks for the great recipe.

Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
This was really good. I served it at a bbq last night with black bean salad and Jay's jerk chicken (both from allrecipes). One guest who doesn't normally like potato salad came back for a second helping. It was a big hit.

Classic Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
I love this recipe. Even those who say they don't like sweet potatoes like this recipe. I absolutely hate those marshmallow sweet potato dishes, so this is just simple and wonderful. I am considering not boiling the potatoes this year and just adding them to the baking pan raw with the sauce. Has anyone tried this method? I hope it works out.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
We loved this salad. I served it with white cheese chicken lasagna from allrecipes some warm bread. The dressing seemed like a lot, so I halved it and it was perfect for 6 people. Next time I make this salad I am going to substitute the swiss cheese for feta cheese and mix in some spinach leaves with the romaine. I can hardly wait to try this again.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This is my favorite lasagna. It takes a bit of work, so I seem to make it only about once a year, usually for my son's birthday dinner. I make it exactly how the recipe is and couldn't imagine changing a thing. It is just perfect.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
Yummy! I didn't have 4 loaf pans, so I opted to half the recipe. The bananas I had were on the small side, so I used 4 in the recipe. It turned out wonderful. Moist, but not too moist that it fell apart. I really liked the sugar mixture on the outside of the loaves. I also really like nutmeg, so I added some to the batter. I will definately make this one again.

Grandma's Peach French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
After having this dish 3 years in a row for Christmas breakfast, my family has decided that it is to become a Christmas tradition. We love it so much. Serve it with a dollop of real whipped cream, maybe even a bit of maple syrup, and breakfast sausages. You are in for an real treat. Thanks for the recipe and the start of a great tradition.

Amish Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I make a batch of this bread almost every day. It is so simple, and so so good! I have always made the dough in the bread machine and then baked in the oven. The only problem I had was that the dough made one really big loaf, or two small loaves that weren't quite big enough for sandwiches. I experimented with the amounts of ingredients to come up with a dough that would make two normal sized loaves. I changed it to 1 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup oil, 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt, 4 cups all purpose flour, 1 1/2 tsp yeast. I bake my loaves in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Rhubarb Dream Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
Excellent recipe. I make it even better by adding 1-2 teaspoons of a very good vanilla. The flavours of the bars are simple and uncomplicated, so the flavour of the vanilla really stands out.

Spooky Witches' Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
These were really good. I tinted the cookie dough green, and they looked really scary. A big hit with my son's Grade 1 class (well the boys anyways), but didn't go over as well at my other son's preschool. The kids were to scared to eat them. Oh well, I still think they were great.

Fresh Pineapple Dessert

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Really good. I'm not sure I would like to have this for a dessert, though. It just seems like a really quick, tasty snack. My 4 year old loved it. He doesn't usually eat pineapple, but had quite a few slices of this. This really hits the spot if you are wanting something sweet, but don't really want to bake anything.

Chicken Florentine Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
Pretty good recipe. Although it wasn't a hit with the kids. They didn't like the spinach. I couldn't see the point in cooking the whole chicken breasts, and then cubing them, so I just cubed the chicken before cooking. I only had to use a teaspoon of oil in the pan. Also didn't bother with the margarine on top. The dish didn't seem to be lacking anything, so I don't don't see what the margarine would do. I also think it was a bit to much work to do for a casserole. I would have liked to see a recipe where I didn't have to cook the rice first.

Catherine's Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Pretty good roast, but I think I will continue to use my usual method. Instead of just black pepper on the roast, I slather dijon mustard over the entire roast and coat the mustard with Montreal steak spice.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
So, so, so good!!!I used chicken broth, as I didn't have veggie broth. I also added red lentils to the mixture and simmered until they were soft. I didn't bother with the cilantro and seseme oil, and the soup was still very tasty. The lemon juice really kicks up the flavour of the soup. The only problem I have is that the soup isn't kid friendly. My boys wouldn't even try it.

Corned Beef Potato Dinner

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This was really tasty. I had a large amount of pastrami to use and was looking for a recipe to use it with. When I didn't have any luck I decided to find something with corned beef and use the pastrami instead of. I sauteed the onions and cabbage and added everything else, including the microwaved potatoes. Didn't have any spicy mustard so I just used regular yellow mustard with a dollop of horseradish. Oh, and I also added a diced apple to the mix. Cooked everything on low for 30 minutes and it was great.
