Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2005
I didn't much care for the taste of this but the rest of the family wolfed it down and said I could make it again so I guess its a keeper.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2005
As someone who hails from "Downunder" let me set the record straight. Much like that Australian themed restaurant that serves only American food, the only thing "Aussie" about this chicken is the name. Honey-mustard is not a common or even remotely popular flavour in Australia. Having said this...the honey-mustard sauce wasn't too bad but the combination of this sauce, bacon, cheese and mushrooms wasn't a good mix. Hubby said it was ok and that he would probably eat it again but my son refused to touch it which automatically loses a star in my book. I don't think we'll be trying this again.

Frosted Banana Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2005
Very easy to make and came out light and fluffy with a lovely moist banana flavour. I only had one banana to use so I had to halve the recipe and fiddle with the cooking time but it still came out perfect. Topped it with the whipped cream cheese frosting from this site as others recommended and it disappeared very quickly. Great kid pleaser.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2005
I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could! I took the tips given by one reviewer and added the 1/4tsp of crushed methi (fennel seeds), used 1/4 cup of cream instead of the half and half and 1/4 cup finely ground unsalted cashew nuts as a thicker instead of corn starch...I think the cashews are an essential ingredient...it's not the same tasting sauce without them. I did't have the garlic ginger paste so I used 2 cloves of crushed garlic and some fresh crushed ginger. I also used Greek yoghurt which has a much creamier texture and taste. This dish was divine! Better than some I have had in restaurants. Hubby and 18 mth old both wolfed it down. Even pet ferrets gobbled up a piece that had fallen on the floor and spent the rest of the meal begging for more! You have to try this recipe. We'll be using it often.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
Wow! Light and fluffy with a mild, not-too-sweet, cream cheese flavor. I used it on the banana bar recipe found on this site. Not sure I could have piped it as it was quite soft, but I did forget to put it in the refrigerator as others suggested. I will definitely be making this again.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2005
I wasn't sure how the combination of flavors would be but hubby wanted pork chops so I gave it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised. The sauce tasted wonderful and would also be great with beef tenderloin. I thought the pork chops needed to be cooked more but that would depend on the thickness used. I'm not a fan of pork usually but will be making this again.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
Be prepared for a workout...this dough is really stiff and difficult to work with. Also, don't listen to anyone who says this cookie dough won't spread out much in the oven...in my experience, you need to leave at least 2 inches between cookies on the sheet. The first batch looked awful, all stuck together, crumbly texture and they tasted worse. For the second batch I turned down the oven to 345F and cooked them for 14-15 minutes and they looked really nice....crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. As to the taste, I thought they were ok, maybe a little bland. My husband who is a soft choc. chip cookie lover said they were good but that Toll House were much better. It must have been slim pickin's to choose from if these cookies won an award. I might try making them with a different pudding flavor but not with vanilla again.

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
Excellent, especially the Yorkshire puds. Rather than waste the vegetables by roasting the meat on top of them and discarding them as one reviewer suggested, I too removed the rack but lined the roasting dish with non stick foil. I then added pieces of carrot, parsnip, kumara (orange yam), potatoes and butternut squash all tossed in olive oil and salted to taste, in with the beef for about 90 mins. Served it all with rich gravy and...viola! Sunday roast to die for. Sadly though not a scrap leftover for sandwiches!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
I didn't much care for the flavor of the chicken alone but once all the ingredients ware rolled together in a tortilla with some sour cream, I thought it tasted pretty good. My son who loves mexican food however refused to eat it. I might make this again but will keep looking for a better fajita recipe.

Floating Island Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2004
I thought this tasted ok but judging by how much was left over, no one else did! Not as wonderful as other reviews would have you believe...probably more suited to kids parties than adult tastes.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2004
Not as good as the reviews would have you believe, in fact I didn't care for the overall flavor of this dip very much, but my husband thought it was OK so I gave it 3 stars instead of 2. Followed the recipe exactly...tastes nothing like restaurant quality spinach/artichoke dip.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2003
A good basic recipe but it needs a little tweaking. I too, found that it was much too dry and needed at least twice as much salad dressing to get a creamy texture. I also added more paprika and mustard as I felt it was a little bland. Otherwise, a keeper.

Deviled Eggs I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2002
This was just OK. Not a bad tasting recipe but I have had much better deviled eggs and the amount of paprika in the recipe gave the filling a wierd orange color which some people found unappealing. Not sure thatI would make this again.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2002
Oh my! This is the best hot buttered rum I have ever tasted! I just made half the recipe tonight to try, hoping it would be good to serve at Thanksgiving but I will have to make another batch before then...it's almost gone!

Simple Waldorf Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2002
Nice combination of flavors and textures in this salad but I found the dressing way too sour for my liking. Next time I will use less vinegar than called for or maybe leave it out altogether.

Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2002
I love this marinade. We barbequed the steak and the meat just melted in your mouth. It is best done overnight but still tastes good after a few hours marinating. Will definitely be making this again. The best!

Bob's Awesome Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2002
I tried this as a change to my usual recipe. Maybe it's just my mediterranian backround but I didn't think this lasagna was so "awesome"...actually I found it to be fairly bland tasting and I felt it could do with a good dose of herbs. I also found that using the exact quantities outlined in this recipe, that the meat sauce was half what I needed to complete the layers. No way does this recipe serve 12 people. I think this lasagne would be OK for those used to "American Italian" cooking but I'll be sticking with the traditional recipe given to me by my Italian neighbour.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2002
This recipe is awesome! It almost didn't make it to the table because we were eating it in the kitchen while waiting for the rest of the meal to cook. I took the advice of others and halved the sugar but I think next time I will decrease it a bit more as I found it still to be a little sweet if you use Craisins. I used dry toasted pinenuts instead of almonds and also added gorganzola cheese. This combination of flavours was fabulous! I didn't think however that the sesame seeds and poppy seeds added too much to the flavour of the dressing so I think I might try it without them next time.
