Boo Beverage

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
The juice was a hit with the kids I made it for! They all loved it! I used my food processor for it and it worked fine! I don't own a blender.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
This was really good just as is. Most of my family don't like mushrooms so I just left them out and it was fine. You could easily increase the ratio of balsamic vinegar to broth as it wasn't overpowering by any means. When I make it again I'll probably go closer to half and half and see what happens. Overall it's a really good weeknight dish!!

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
These were very good! I didn't have any sherry so I used red wine instead, but otherwise I changed nothing. I think next time I want to try them with sherry and do them in the slow cooker like some of the other reviewers have done. It is a very good recipe as written!!

Herbed Cream Cheese Omelet

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
These are awesome. I never thought to add cream cheese to an omelet, but I love it! I used dried chives because that's what I had on hand! Very good!

Panko Crusted Mashed Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
This is the second time I've tried these. I figured I should give the recipe another chance and make some modifications and I think I'm going to make these yet again and modify them further. This time I used only 1 egg in the potatoes and did not dredge the potato pancakes in the flour and egg. Simply rolling them in panko made them slightly easier to work with. Next time I make these I'm going to skip the egg all together! Unless you're making dry mashed potatoes (no milk and butter) there really is no need for the additional moisture from the egg. Just add the flavourings, form and roll in the panko. It doesn't need anything else.

Chicken and Herbs in White Wine

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Pretty good recipe. I just did this with chicken breasts in a deep frying pan on the stove. It works well. I thickened the sauce after and made some gravy for the mashed potatoes. It worked out great!

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Perfectly good whipped cream. An easy way to get your whipped cream to stay fluffy is to bloom 1 tsp of unflavoured gelatin in 1tbsp of water. Then just add that to your whipped cream when you add the sugar. It will stay nice and fluffy for days! No more making whipped cream at the last possible second.

Very mildly spiced. Next time I will double or triple the spices! Great recipe otherwise.

Marinated Chuck Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Easy, good marinade. I used it with our top sirloin roast and marinated it overnight. Worked great and made for some great beef!

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
It's a perfectly good basic chili recipe. I make my chili in a similar fashion. I don't make quite this much though. I use only 1 pound of ground beef and 1 can of kidney beans that are drained and rinsed. This time I used diced tomatoes that I pureed with my hand blender. My husband doesn't like tomato chunks. I also used a can of tomato paste. I used an entire head of garlic as well. I fried the ground beef, onions and garlic in the frying pan and dumped them into the slow cooker with the other stuff. I just sort of dump chili powder in, I don't measure. I've probably used 3 or 4T of it though. And I didn't use green pepper. It makes for tasty chili!!

Sweet and Sour Chicken II

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Very easy and very good. Because I didn't have green pepper and water chestnuts around I used carrots with the pineapple and chicken. I tossed the chicken in some flour seasoned with salt and pepper and threw that in the pot first to brown. Then I pulled it out and made the sauce using only 1/2 cup of brown sugar and a couple squirts of ketchup. I thickened it with flour and water because I'm out of cornstarch at the moment. It was a great dinner. Very easy to make and will make again!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
We really liked these. I used All Spice in them instead of cinnamon, only because I didn't have cinnamon in the cupboard. They were really nice with the all spice. I also added apple juice to the batter like some others. Once I mixed it I could have kneaded it and rolled it out with a rolling pin, it was really dry. I added some apple juice just to moisten it up some and make it more batter like and less dough like. For the topping I used brown sugar instead of white sugar and mixed it with some all spice. They came out awesome! Next time I'll probably make them with cinnamon though. Great recipe!

Herbed Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Awesome! Did them in the slow cooker. They took about 45 minutes to an hour on low. I added garlic and onion powder and they needed a little more milk than written, but otherwise awesome! I used them with a beef stew recipe also from this site!

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I'm giving this only 3 stars because my family didn't like it. I quite liked the recipe though. It's good as is. Unfortunately I won't be making it again because of my rather picky family! Sorry!

Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
Great recipe. I followed the stuffing recipe as directed and we really liked it. I skipped browning the meat on the stove though and just threw them in the oven. I hate having left over onion so I cut up the little bit for the stuffing and then put the rest in with the chops and broth. I also added some garlic. I used a brown gravy mix with the drippings instead of just adding cornstarch and water. Excellent recipe.

Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
I quite like this cheesecake. It's a lot of work but I think it's worth it. It's not overly sweet either, which is nice. I'm not crazy about the sour cream layer on the top of the cake. I think I would skip that next time and just put the ganache on top. Otherwise good cake and probably will make again.
