Simple Garlic Shrimp

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
Be prepared to pull out the shrimp when they are done and finish the sauce separately. Smaller shrimp may cook faster than required to finish off the sauce and it is critical to avoid over cooking the shrimp. Have the ingredients fully prepped, as in measured and combined where appropriate, and not just putting containers out on the counter. Husband calls this one a keeper, 5 stars.

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.

Chef John's Chicken and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
Very good, chicken is moist, mushrooms are very tasty. Update: Still one of Hubby's favourites. I have also used bone-in chicken thighs when I couldn't find breast with the skin still on.

Black Forest Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
I haven't been able to find sour cherries ( in Canada) and so haven't tried this yet. I am hoping that the sour cherries will be a fresher alternative to cherry pie filling used in other recipes.

Beet Salad with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
Would have been 5 stars except that I knew I wouldn't like the walnuts candied in maple syrup. I candied the walnuts by heating them gently in a teflon frying pan with brown sugar. The brown sugar melts and makes a lighter candied nut, good for salads. Dressing was surprisingly good. I was a little concerned because the orange concentrate makes a rather thick texture to the dressing, but the flavour is great. I like to toss the greens in the dressing before plating the salad and adding the beets, nuts and cheese. Be careful that you use just enough dressing to coat the greens lightly.

Chef John's Perfect Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
We could probably make an advertisement with this recipe. 'Nothing gets between me and my mashed potatoes.' Keep it simple and let the mashed potato strut its stuff. Very good.

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
This is one of my regulars when preparing dinner for guests. Simple and flavourful and lets me concentrate on finishing the cooking of the rest of the meal while guests munch and talk. I always prepare the spread ahead of time to allow flavours to mingle. I prefer to use a crispier cracker such as Melba canapés than sliced french bread. I usually a little extra dill right into the spread and always top with fresh dill.

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

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 my modifications under Other Versions.

Caesar Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2013
consider using the blender for the dressing and baking the croutons instead of frying.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2014
The onions should be chopped, not sliced to add flavour without affecting the texture. I had to use a 2 quart casserole to hold the recipe for 6 persons and it still bubbled over. Be sure to place your casserole dish on some foil for easier clean up. I also added the sauce intermittently as I layered the potatoes to ensure the sauce gets down to all the potatoes. I like the idea of removing the top foil for the last 20 minutes to get some extra browning.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
My first use of this recipe was to use up some extra pastry dough that I had left over. I scaled back all the ingredients proportionate to one serving and simply wrapped sliced apples in the dough and poured the sauce in an opening that I left at the top. I followed the ingredients and the cooking temperature closely. The 'pasty' set beautifully ( not runny or gooey as others experienced) and the flavour was very good. I am looking forward to making a full pie, but the 1 star reviews have me a bit worried.

Pat's Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
I thought the balsamic vinegar added Pop to the mushrooms without overwhelming the natural flavours. I liked it!

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.

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.
