Easy Sweet and Sour Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2015
Really good, easy recipe. I simplified this just slightly, I threw the flour and spices in a bag with the chicken, gave a shake to coat and dumped into the frying pan. I only browned the chicken before adding the vegetables in with the chicken, let the veggies cook down slightly then added the pineapple, ketchup and apple cider vinegar (didn't have lemon juice). Then I just let the entire thing simmer while I made rice. For the pineapple I used crushed but I used an entire small can instead of half of one. I added only a tiny bit more sugar to sweeten it up slightly after adding the extra pineapple.

Rosemary Pasta in Roasted Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
Really good. Other than adjusting the recipe for only 2 servings, I used dried rosemary. I added the rosemary to the frying pan before the chicken stock till it got fragrant. That helps with the flavor of a dried herb. Will make again.

Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
These were a nice change from traditional grilled cheese. I made 2 and did them on the stove in my fry pan. Worked well. I didn't even bother mixing the margarine with the garlic in a dish, I just sprinkled the garlic over top of the margarine on the bread and used my knife to mix it slightly. Don't do this unless you really like garlic. Sprinkled Oregano over that and fried them up. Really good.

Tender Pan-Fried Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
This was good. I used chicken fillets instead of chicken breast and cooked them in oil on the stove. They never went into the oven. I accidentally skipped the ginger but I put in almost a tablespoon of garlic. They were good. Will be making them again!

Single Cup Hot Buttered Rum

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
Wow! I didn't have any ice cream but used cream and a dash of vanilla extract. I also just used plain old rum but what a good drink! If I'd had hot coffee I would have done that! Amazing!!

Kangaroo Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
This is really good. I made it pretty much as written, just skipped the corn. Will make again because it's super easy. Like others, I did pre-cook the potatoes just slightly before throwing them in with the pork chops. My pork chops were small and the 45 minute time frame was enough with the potatoes pre-cooked. Because my family tends to be big eaters I made an extra packet of potatoes seasoned the same as the ones with the pork. It worked well!

Poutine

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
This is probably more appropriately named "Cheese Fries". Poutine is actually made with cheese curds and beef gravy as others have stated. That said, in a pinch, it is a perfectly acceptable substitute and one I can make at home!

Beef Stroganoff II

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
This was very good! I cheat and make my stroganoff with ground beef for a cheap, quick meal. The only thing I did differently was add some garlic and some worcestershire sauce and serve it over rotini instead of egg noodles. Great, easy recipe!

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I have to admit I used this recipe solely for the sauce! I didn't make my own croutons. The sauce is to die for! I didn't use the anchovies but made the sauce as written and tasted it pretty good. I loved the garlic flavour but it needed a little tang. I added some red wine vinegar, thinned it out just slightly with some milk and let it sit for a couple hours. Amazing! I love more of a garlic caesar salad and this fits the bill beautifully! I will be making my caesar dressing from now on! BTW, fresh parm is the only way to go. That processed stuff just doesn't do it! Buy a brick, keep it in the freezer in a ziplock bag and it'll last for months. Just pull it out and grate it when you need it.

Mom's Brown Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
Really good gravy recipe. I did not make this vegetarian. I used beef boullion instead. I had the packets of powder and used 4 of them in the gravy. I also added a few dashes of worchestershire sauce to give it a little kick. Very good recipe!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
Really good! I changed the spice mix a little just for my own taste. Basically it's a really good, easy gingerbread men recipe. Just change the spice ratios to suit your fancy!

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
We made this. It's really good and fairly easy to make. We found it to be dry, basically it needs gravy! Next time I make it I will be making gravy to go with it, but beyond that I will definitely make it again!

Pasta with Fresh Tomatoes and Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Excellent recipe! I made this with balsamic like many other reviewers and added a bunch more fresh parmesan. Because it's November now and not the middle of the summer, I actually threw the pasta and sauce mixture back on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Warming the tomatoes and corn through really helped the flavour of the dish. It also allowed the pasta to absorb the flavours a little more. Will definitely make again!

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Great recipe. I didn't have any sour cream but I had leftover buttermilk I was looking to use up. This did the trick. I cut the recipe in half and followed the spice measurements. I added a bunch of white vinegar to it because I wanted it to be more tangy than it was, but other than that it was great. I will make this again.

Spinach Frittata

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
I just made this. It's definitely easy. I didn't have any chicken or peppers so I left them out. I sauteed onions and garlic (I used 4 cloves) in an oven safe skillet. Once they were cooled I took them off the heat and got the rest of the ingredients together. Like another reviewer I wanted to use the whole pack of spinach so I added an extra egg and some milk. I added some basil to the mix as well. I dumped the onions and garlic into the bowl and mixed them in (they had cooled enough at this point). I cooked it half in the oven and half on the stove. I think next time I'll just use the oven and I'll add a lot more cheese, likely cheddar. I think it needs the extra flavour. It's really good as it is, just needs a little extra flavour for my liking. Will make again!

Garlic Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Super easy and very good. Makes a quick lunch! I used dried herbs and upped the garlic. I didn't measure anything, just sort of dumped it in and mix. Definitely use fresh parmesan!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Tried this tonight. My husband doesn't like cream sauces so I had no choice but to cook the chicken separate from the sauce. I breaded the chicken in and panko and used chicken broth instead of wine only because I didn't have any wine on hand. I used a combination of heavy cream and milk for the sauce. It would be fine with only milk too. Great recipe!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Great marinade. I didn't have lemon juice so I threw in some red wine vinegar. Came out very good! Only marinated the meat for a couple hours, but still excellent!
