Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
Here's what I've done to make this recipe simpler. I put the chicken in the skillet with the onion and brown them both. I add the salsa and soups to the chicken and simmer till chicken is done. I make rice as normal. I mix the cheses right on the wax paper or parchment paper I shred it on. I layer as directed. Saves some pots!

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2005
Good recipe, but like the others I changed the way I made it, not the ingredients I used. I sauteed the onion in the butter first, then I added the flour to make a roux. I browned the roux to give my gravy some color. Then I added the bouillion and the water. I used to 2 packets of beef boullion in mine, which I scaled for 2 people. Worked out well and tastes great!

Creamy Slow Cooker Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
This is the second or third time I've made this soup now. Here's what I'm doing differently. I only use half of the recommended potatoes with all of the liquid plus an extra cup of milk. I skip the bacon (don't like bacon) and add lots and lots of extra cheese. You may add even more milk or chicken stock. Good flavour though!

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.

Thousand Island Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
I have been making this recipe for a long time. I haven't bought dressing in years. Don't need to. I just put a little of everything in a small bowl. Don't measure! Just get it to where I want it and go! It really is easy and uses ingredients you should already have!

Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
These were good. I really like the breading. My pork chops were a little thicker and I ended up throwing the them in the oven for a bit to finish the cooking process. Not a big deal, it was already on for the scalloped potatoes. I also cooked it on more like medium heat verses medium high. On my stove medium high would have burned the breading. Good recipe.

Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: May 27, 2006
I think this is a great recipe. I used what I had. Skipped the corn and celery. Didn't have canned chili either. Here's what I did. Added garlic, celery salt, used homemade taco seasoning, chili powder and used rice instead of noodles. Made the rice, dumped everything else in the frying pan. Added the rice once it was done and put the whole thing in the oven. I have oven safe pots so I skipped the casserole dish. Also topped with cheddar cheese. Excellent dish!

Mocha Coffee

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
Pretty good. I love coffee and I love flavoured coffee even more. I did use the full 1 tablespoon of cocoa and loved it. Instead of milk though I used my french vanilla flavoured dairy creamer. I also added extra sugar. I tend to like my coffee a little sweeter. All in all pretty good!

Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2005
I just made this again. I used garlic powder instead of salt and that made all the difference in the world. The sandwich doesn't need the extra salt. I also skipped the mayo like I did the first time. I've been making this with plain white bread and it works fine although I'm sure french bread or some other bread like foccacia would be awesome. A tip I have when making grilled cheese sandwiches of any kind is to use partially or completely frozen bread. The bread will hold together better and you won't break it when you slather on the margarine or butter. It doesn't add to the cooking time and you end up with a nicer looking sandwich!

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.

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2004
It's a good soup. I changed a few things though. I made it in my slow cooker and used rice instead of pasta (pasta doesn't do well in the slow cooker). I just boiled water in my kettle and poured it into the slow cooker. I didn't have any oregano so I used Italian seasoning. I also didn't have any bouillon cubes so I didn't use them. Of course, the soup needed salt to replace to beef flavour. I would use more garlic too. (I love garlic!) I used 2 cloves, but I'd probably use 4 or 5 next time. If I were to make it again I would probably add more tomato and less water. I like a little thicker soup. And I also used corn in place of celery and carrots however, I think all of the above and a few more would be good too. But overall, good soup. I like the fact that I could modify to work in the slow cooker!

Potato Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This is a great stew. Cooking everything separately however, seemed too much like work. I made this a one pot wonder. I browned the chicken, then took it out and added the veggies. I cooked those until soft, added the potatoes, which I left raw and put chicken back in. Then I added the flour to make a roux from the oil and added the broth and seasonings. I let the stew cook till the potatoes were done. I still, like others, found the broth too thin so I thickened it with some corn starch and water. Great recipe!

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
This recipe is super easy and you can do just about anything you want to it. I found the batter to be more like dough. I made the batter two ways. With the first batch I thinned it out so that it looked like a batter instead of a dough and with the second I left it alone more or less. It actually worked better when it was doughy. For the variations I made one batch with chocolate chips and a little vanilla. The second I made garlic, herb, and cheddar muffins. I reduced the sugar to 2 TBSP and added 1 cup cheddar, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1 tsp italian seasoning. I should have upped the salt to about 1tsp as well. I think it needs it. I also topped the muffins with a little cheddar before putting them in the oven. Pretty good! I'll be using this recipe lots! Thanks!

Chip Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Pretty good. I thinned it with a bunch of extra milk. I also used onion powder instead of real onions. If I were making it for a party or something I might use real onion, but just for me for a snack it wasn't worth the effort. I also added a couple dashes of pepper to it. Pretty good recipe and probably slightly healthier than my standard sour cream and onion soup mix concoction. Just a tip, I know some were using chives you could also use green onion (scallion) or even shallot to temper the onion flavour a bit.

Cream Cheese Ranch Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2004
Excellent recipe!! The only thing I did differently was skip the butter. I didn't see the point to it, but other than that it was terrific. Suggestion: throw everything in the food processor instead of blending and mashing. That or use your hand blender to get creamy smooth potatos. I served this with chicken coated in a tiny bit of the ranch dressing mix I had left, some italian seasoning and pepper. I just fried it in the frying pan with a little oil. Brought all the flavours together! Thanks for submitting a great recipe!!

Garlic Creamed Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
This is such an easy recipe. I've made it a bunch of times, even forgot to use sour cream once, it was still great. Just a tip, microwave the cream cheese for about 30 seconds, it will soften and its much easier to mix into the mushroom soup. Personally though, little bits of cream cheese don't bother me, but softened cream cheese is much easier to work with. And of course, double the garlic! Delicious!!!

Feta Eggs

Reviewed: May 23, 2005
I'm not usually a big scrambled egg fan but every so often I get the urge to have some and I figured I'd try this recipe out. All I had on hand was shallots and some seasoned feta so that's what I used. Turned out great and tasted terrific. I used a lot more feta than called for though. Just kind of sprinkled a couple of handfuls into my eggs. Delicious idea!

Delicious Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
It's a good recipe. I didn't have taco sauce so I used ketchup. Because ketchup is already sweet I skipped the white sugar and only added half the molasses. Even that was a little too much and I ended up adding a little more vinegar to balance it back out again. The only other change I made was to add a couple of drops of liquid smoke to it. Really good as is though!

Brownie Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This was absolutely delicious and perfect for my pregnant chocolate craving!! I have to say though that I tasted the batter and added more cocoa. One tablespoon cocoa just wasn't enough. I ended up with 3 tablespoons cocoa in the brownie batter and 2 in the brown sugar mixture. It came out very pudding like and was just delicious. The only other little change I made was to use butter instead of shortening because it's what I had. Awesome recipe!!
