Jenny's Black Forest Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
Hubby would like me to find a fresher alternative to cherry pie filling, and he would have preferred whipped cream in the construction of the cake. Having said that, he had no trouble finishing off the leftovers.

Chocolate Mousse II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
Worked very well for me. I used high grade dark chocolate chips. They melted instantly with the addition of the hot water, no need for blender, microwave or double boiler, although I was prepared to use the microwave. Be sure to have the egg whites beaten and ready for the final mixing so that the chocolate doesn't cool and set before you are finished. Makes a very dark, rich mousse, which I love. I added whipped cream on top which helped to soften the intense flavour.

Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
I had to add corn starch to thicken the remaining sauce. Flavour was good.

Honey Ginger Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
I am not sure that soya sayce is a good choice for a green vegetable. It resulted in mottling the color of the beans which I often rely upon for a bit of colour on a plate. I reduced the honey and doubled the ginger and garlic as indicated in the reviews. Flavour was ok.

Lancashire Hot Pot

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
I used leftover cooked lamb so I had to modify cooking times. I should have also reduced the amount of liquid if I wanted consistency of a stew, but the flavours were just great as a lamb soup. I added green beans for colour and nutrition.

Seven Layer Tex Mex Dip, My changes

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
It didn't get completely consumed at the appetizer party, but hubby and I had no trouble finishing it over the next several days. The flavours were very compatible, but a little understated. I reduced the taco seasoning after reading the reviews, but I will try the full amount next time. I also added a layer of mild and shredded iceberg lettuce which added some crunch and stayed surprisingly fresh for several days. Next time I will try a spicier salsa. See other versions for my modifications.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
Use crushed or minced garlic to ensure the oil is thoroughly infused with garlic. I thought it was pretty plain, but hubby liked it. I wouldn't use it if we were were entertaining for dinner.

Absolutely Delicious Baked Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
A very good recipe for root vegetables, but if you don't like rutabagas or parsnips or carrots, it is better to leave them out and go with what you like. My personal preference was to substitute acorn squash for rutabaga. I also found that the carrots and parsnips cooked more slowly than the other vegetables, so next time I will try giving them a head start by par boiling them. Husband thought the spices were a little overwhelming, and I will reduce the punch next time to suit our tastes.

Pork Tenderloin Diane

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2013
Based on other reviews, I quadrupled the recipe for the sauce and still didn't have too much. However, the sauce was little too tangy for us as written. Next time I will add a little chicken broth or cream or butter as recommended in other reviews. Very easy to make, so it worth investing some time on getting it to your liking.

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2013
Used crunchy peanut butter, very tasty and attractive with the orange carrots. This is not just plain rice and you might not want to use it in meals where you want a bland starch to soak up sauce or gravy.

Beef Wellington

I enjoyed it, but it wasn't quite good enough to persuade my husband that tenderloin can be baked.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
I didn't think I would like the soya sauce, but it has worked well for me in meals with an oriental theme. For a more general recipe for sautéed mushrooms that applies to a broader range of plates, I prefer Pat's Mushroom sauté using balsamic vinegar, also found on this site.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
We enjoy the tang of the parmesan on the mild fish. Cooking time can be tricky because fish is quite varied in thickness, I will sometimes overlap the thinner portions of two pieces to get a more consistent thickness. I line my grilling pan with tin foil.
