Irene's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2015
This is good, but it was too tangy for our tastes. I would make it again, but cut the vinegar by at least 25%, and add a bit more brown sugar if you like your sauce sweet.

Sausage Smothered in Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
As written, there is way too much salt in this recipe. Cut it down to 1 to 1.5 tsp and it is good.

Salmon and Spinach Fettuccine

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2015
the smoked salmon overpowers the dish. Can't taste the other ingredients. Sauce came out very thick and gloppy. I'll move on and not make this again.

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2015
This is super yummy and will stay in the rotation. I use chopped Thai Basil instead of cilantro and add sliced bell pepper and carrots to add veggie nutrition. I use 1 can light coconut milk together with 1/3 cup chicken broth. The specified 2 Tbsp of Mae Ploy yellow curry paste gives just the right amount of heat (not mild, but not too spicy). Following recommendations in many of the other reviews, I omit the soy sauce in the sauce part, and use just a dash of sugar. We all like this dish, even my 10 year old. Best over Jasmine rice with stir fried bok choy.

Ricardo's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
This crust is really excellent. Browns nicely with a chewy center. I cut the sugar to 1.5 Tbsp but otherwise followed exactly. Dough had perfect consistency and rose quite a bit during the 30 minute rest period. Pats easily out into a pizza shape. ( I have yet to master the stretching method.) I will be making it again!

Slow Cooker Hungarian Goulash

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
We liked this. Even with the addition of the carrots and celery it was bland, but perhaps that is how Hungarian goulash is supposed to taste. I'm considering adding some spice, but what? for next time, maybe more smoked paprika?

Crunchy Cheesy Fish and Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2014
This was just OK. If you're going to make it, you should note that the cooking time is longer for 1 inch thick pieces of cod - breaking them into smaller pieces as the recipe recommends would have helped this cook faster. I probably won't make again.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
We didn't care for this. Made exactly as described, and the chicken was swimming in butter. It didn't have a distinctive flavor, pretty bland for a curry. I will keep looking.

Mashed Maple Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2014
Let me just add to the many great reviews this recipe has received! It's beyond delicious. Tastes to me like pumpkin pie filling, only better. I'm thinking of having it for dessert. It doesn't even need a dollop of whipped cream, since the cream is inside! I used yams, which are the red-skinned variety. Sweet potatoes are light tan on the outside, and are not as sweet as yams. Following the advice of previous reviewers, I made a few changes to lighten it up a bit. It is still not healthy by any stretch of the imagination. Used 5T butter, increased sweet potatoes to 5 and eggs to 3, cut brown sugar to 1/4 cup, used only 1T vanilla, omitted the pecans in the dish (still used the ones on top) and omitted the maple syrup drizzle on top. Also used light maple-flavored syrup. My husband has demanded we not lose this recipe! Thanks JENNYWRITES!

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2014
This is my new go-to roll recipe. Fabulously light, chewy and delicious. I make the dough in the breadmaker on the dough cycle (90 min) then scoop into the muffin cups, greased with a little shortening to make them release easily. Yes, the dough will be sticky, but don't add flour! These rolls are delish.

Beef and Cabbage Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2014
Let me join the ranks of the raving reviewers. I am usually not a stew lover but I had some top round steak I needed to use and found this recipe. I made it exactly as written (with the exception of not peeling the potatoes) and it was delicious. Just the right consistency and the cabbage flavor is very subtle. I'll definitely be making it again.

Peach-a-Berry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2014
Just yum! My hubby said it was the best pie he'd ever had. I did it with homemade crust and a lattice top to let some of the water evaporate. Even better (I think) after sitting overnight in the fridge. Then again I am partial to cold pie. Glad I made this one!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
I've made just the sauce portion of this recipe several times, cutting back on the sugar as other reviewers have suggested. It makes a good sauce for the chicken meatballs from Costco, just add some chopped bell peppers.

Super Easy Rosemary Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
Really enjoyed this. Fantastic texture - great for toast. I add the yeast last, as recommended by my breadmaker. Update: After making this about 6-8 more times over the few months, I have come up with a slightly more healthy version without sacrificing taste. Reduce both sugar and olive oil from 3 Tbsp. to 2 Tbsp. Increase the rosemary to about 2 Tbsp. Substitute 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour for the white flour if desired. I always use bread flour instead of all-purpose.

Chow Mein with Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
This was really good. Not bland at all, with just the right amount of spice/flavor. I believe this was because what I had on hand was spicy oyster sauce and hot chili sesame oil instead of regular sesame oil. I used two 6-oz packages of precooked yakisoba noodles. I omitted the zucchini. We all enjoyed it and will be making this one again.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2013
I like this bread and will make it again. It has a light, fluffy inner texture. I used the prescribed 1 Tbsp of salt inside the dough, and just a sprinkling on top, and found it to be too salty tasting. Next time I will reduce the salt to 3/4 Tbsp instead of 1 Tbsp. Also, I don't know if the cheese is necessary but it gives it a nice appearance. A note about baking method (I did two loaves, each with a different baking method) - a dark bottomed pan coated with oil produces a nice medium brown bottom crust, but baking on wax paper resulted in the crust sticking to the wax paper and the bottom not browning at all. I had read the reviewer who said to use parchment paper and decided to use wax paper since I didn't have parchment. I don't know if the result would be the same, but I'm not willing to try it. Use an oiled, dark bottomed pan and you won't be disappointed.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2013
Made exactly as described, but no one in our family cared for this at all. It just had a weird texture, and not much flavor. We ate a few bites, then went to reheat yesterday's leftovers. Oh, well. I felt it was my civic duty to put in a rating since the reason I tried this was its super high rating.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
This is excellent quiche. It is important to drain the spinach beforehand because it makes the quiche too watery. I tried evaporating the water off in the pan with the onions and it was only partially successful. I used plain feta and topped with bacon pieces. The flavors were great together.
