Lemon Curd Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
These are amazing and not very hard to do if you buy the lemon curd in the store. I made in an 8X8 pan. I didn't use the coconut because a lot of people don't like it. I toasted the almonds in theoven beofre adding to the top. Sent some into husband's work and was demanded the recipe. I will definitely make these again and again, but I might actually try to make my own curd so I can make a bigger pan. Soooooooo good, I'm glad I found the recipe.

Banana Cake V

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
This was divine! I had 3 bananasin the freezer plus one starting to turn. Lots of banana flavour and extremely moist. I forgot the vanilla and I didn't really miss it. I used fat free sour cream and topped with cream cheese icing and chopped walnuts. My mother-in-law even took some cake home and copied the recipe. I can't wait to have some tonight. I am thinking of making it again this weekend for when my parents visit. Definitely a new favourite!!!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
These cookies are amazing. I used imitation rum extract instead of brandy and used cherry craisins. They came out moist and delicious and I can barely keep my hands out of the cookie jar. I will be making more tonight to give out in my Christmas cookie boxes. They are a new favourite.

Classic Fish and Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
This came out great. Not to oily and the flavour of the coating was nice. Used some fish my husband caught in Sept. and the fish did not smell fishy at all. Made the batter, let sit in fridge for 30 minutes, added the fish to the batter and let sit for another 30 minutes. Fried in a shallow pan with olive oil, and then drained on paper towel and placed in an oven at 200. The coating stayed on really well. Was still pretty crispy when we ate it. Will definitely use this recipe from now on for fish. Did not do the fries though.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2004
this was amazing. I used 1 can low sodium cream of mushroom, 1 of cream of celery. Used boneless/skinless chicken thighs. Instead of carrots and celery I added - mushrooms, green beans and corn. Is a delicious meal, and husband loved it. Made homemade dumplings with it. Will definitely make again.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2004
This is delicious. I used both red & green peppers, left out the squash and added mushrooms. I cooked on the foreman grill and left out the oil. Grilled veggies are divine and when I brought this for lunch someone asked where I had bought it. A definite must eat all summer long. Now I will have something for all my garden zucchini. The only thing is I might add some mozzarella along with the feta.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
Very good. Chicken was nice and moist and had tons of flavour. I used the Italian seasoned bread crumbs so I left out the parley and oregano. Nice change of pace for cooking chicken. I also sprayed the top of the chicken pieces and bottom of pan with Pam so that they came out very crispy and didn't stick.

Beef and Parmesan Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2004
Pretty good, nice and simple. A little bland for my husband, but I liked it as is. Definitely had to add more broth and I also used a 28 oz. can of tomatoes. Added fresh garlic when sauteeing the beef and also added mushroom and onions. Used macaroni noodles. The noodles cooked well, but I think a little less pasta and more tomatoes. Definite comfort food.

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2004
This was divine. I used a pork shoulder roast, and cut out most of the fat. I didn't use all of the pepper, but the sauce was delicious. Didn't overwhelm the meat, and the meat came out very moist. Not dry at all. I didn't even make a gravy, and we didn't need it. I think this may be the only recipe for pork roast I will use.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2004
This is fabulous. Nice subtle flavour and super quick and easy to make. I used whole wheat noodles, and used more than 8 oz. Also used low fat cottage cheese, and fat free sour cream. I added more cheese than asked for (I like it cheesy), and added a tbsp of mustard - Mom's secret ingredient. Now when I crave KD, I will make this instead. For the topping Iused crushed up crackers and it was great. Had 2 bowls for dinner and can't wait for my leftovers for lunch.

Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
This was very yummy. I halved the recipe and left out the walnuts, husband doesn't like nuts in entrees. After sauteeing the mushrooms and onions, I added the orzo, sauteed a bit and then added the stock. There was still liquid after 15 minutes, but simmered with lid off for about 5 minutes and came out wonderfully. I might add some fresh garlic next time. Really good as leftovers the next day. Nice change from rice or potato side dishes. Will make again.

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2004
This was delicious!!! I used low salt chicken broth insted of water. I used the seasoned salt on my husbands and Mrs. Dash Herb and Garlic on mine. I used 2 onions and added some mushrooms. I added no salt and just a little pepper. After the first simmer I took off the cover, took out the chops, turned heat on high until liquid was gone and onions were caramelized. I then added back the porkchops and covered with onion mixture, recovered and heated on low. I served with raosted poatoes, peppers, zucchini and mushrooms. Nice and tender and very flavourful

Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2004
This was pretty good. I cooked my chicken on the indoor grill, used a mix of frozen broccoli and cauliflower,used cream of broccoli instead of chicken,left out the mayo and used a dash of milk instead. I also stirred in some fresh garlic. Very quick and easy. Served with mashed potatoes and was pretty good as leftovers. A once in a while meal.

Laura's Lush Pasta Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2004
This was delicious, I did saute the steak and vegetables with some fresh garlic and I think it would have been perfect just like that. I added some tomato alfredo sauce, which was good, but next time I won't use sauce and eat as is. Quick and easy, and a nice twist to both pasta and steak. Thanks!!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2004
This is awesome, nice subtle flavour and came out perfect. Totally reminded me of my mom's bread pudding. I only used 3 eggs, lactaid milk and splenda instead of the sugar. I did add the raisins, but next time I will stir them into the mix as the ones on top burned so I had hard, little, blackened raisins on top that I picked off. Can't wait to have for dessert tonight with a nice cup of tea. I would also like to try it with chocolate chips, but it is virtually perfect the way it is. A great way to use up those pesky loaf ends.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
This was great. I took the advice of others and cut most of the fat from my roast before putting in the crock pot. I also left out the liquid smoke. I don't think we missed it. I toasted some buns with garlic and herb butter and put the meat mixture in. My husband loved it, and was very happy to see leftovers go in the freezer. He kept going on about how he wanted to try it with venison, or add peppers and onions to it, or add potatoes and such to make a stew. Very quick, very easy, makes a bunch. I will make again. Thanks for a new way to cook a roast!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2004
It was okat, had a strange aftertaste. Probably won't make again. My husband tried one bite and didn't have anymore. Sorry, I really wanted this to turn out. Only left out the buttermilk, don't know if that would have made a diffrence.

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
This was ok, very bland. I had to add some corn as I didn't have enough peas, and I used shredded cheddar instead of cheese slices. I think it needs some garlic or something, to add some flavour. I added more cheese to my leftovers the next day, and that was definitely better. I made this in the pot the day before and put it in a casserole dish covered with with French Fried onions, baking it the next day for dinner. Probably wouldn't make again, unless really in a crunch

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
These were pretty good. I used Splenda instead of sugar, and Lactaid Skim milk, as I am lactose intolerant. I added a mix of blueberries, strawberries and blackberries, defroseted, and it was really delicious. I did have to add more milk, as the batter was so thick I could barely stir it. I will definitely make again, as they are so easy, and I would like to try them plain, with no fruit.

Rainbow Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
I rate these a 3 because they were a lot of work. They turned out very pretty and taste pretty good, but not as good as the effort warranted. For the jam layers I used Strawberry and Apricot. I tried coating the bars both by cutting into sqaures and covering the squares and also leaving in a sheet and covering the whole thing with choclate and cutting. Doing the individual sqaures was really time consuming and actually too much chocolate that covered the almond flavour which I love. I think I will just keep looking in the Italian bakeries in town to find these, or only make them for VERY speical occasions. A.
