Tilapia Pitas

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Exceptionally good. In fact, one of the best recipes I've ever tried from this site (and I've tried many!). Even my 12-year-old son wolfed one down and asked for another. The combination of flavours -- the zing of the cayenne, the sweetness of the dressing, the saltiness of the feta -- is scrumptious. Wow -- this one's a keeper!

Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2004
Perfect! Easy, moist, husband and son approved. Delicious on its own or with chocolate icing. Now if I could just restrain myself from sneaking bites of cake--it's disappearing fast!

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2004
This salad is a meal in itself. Loved it. I only used a 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 heads of broccoli and I threw in 2 cups of trail mix instead of just the raisins and sunflower seeds. Next time I will add more bacon and cut back a wee bit on the red onion, which was a bit strong. Very good.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2004
OMYGOSH...this is definitely the best cheesecake I've ever made. Thick and creamy and just the right flavour--not too sweet, but delectable. I used an 8-inch springform pan, which made it a bit thicker, so after an hour of baking I turned down the heat to 200 and let it bake for another 30 minutes. This cake definitely reaches its peak quality after it's been refrigerated overnight. Everyone enjoyed it and I will make it again for sure.

Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2004
This recipe made a lovely, thick, heart-warming soup. I doubled the recipe, so cutting up all the veggies was labour intensive, but it was worth the effort. Even my 7-year-old son, who doesn't care for vegetables, ate a whole bowl of it and said it was good. My husband loved it and asked me to make it again. One note: even with a doubled recipe I only used 2 cups of grated cheese and it was yummy. I noticed that a lot of the recipes on this site have a very high fat or sugar content and quite often I cut down on the fat or sugar. In this case, I think 3 cups of cheese for 6-8 servings would have been too much. I think next time I will also use a bit less flour because it had a very thick consistency. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2004
This is exactly the same recipe that I've been using each year as my Boxing Day cake. It turns out perfect every time, has a lovely presentation, and it's a wonderful, light alternative to fruit cake.

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002
A good, hearty, beany stew, full of fibre and protein, and very satisfying. My husband is a vegetarian so I'm always interested in trying new vegetarian recipes. Meat lovers might prefer the conventional ground beef taste of a regular chili, but this one was just fine for us.

Slow Cooker Lentils and Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2002
This was a delicious, satisfying stew, perfect for a fall or winter evening or perhaps for a Boxing Day lunch. The recipe didn't specify red or green lentils. I made it with red lentils, and it was perfect. Even my five-year-old son ate it, and that says a lot. Very quick and easy to make. My crock pot is my new best friend!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

This is absolutely the best homemade fudge I've ever eaten! It's incredibly easy to make, and it's soooo creamy and rich. A perfectly delectable treat.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2002
My husband is a vegetarian, so I rarely cook beef. My parents were visiting from far away, and I wanted to serve them a good old-fashioned meat and potatoes meal. This roast was fabulous! I loved being able to put it on in the morning and let it cook slowly all day. What a nice aroma. I served it with creamy mashed potatoes, string beans, and baked pineapple (recipe on this site). It was one of the best meals I ever made. I will definitely make this again.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2002
These are very good scones. My mother, a veteran baker, was visiting recently, and she was impressed that my scones were better than hers!

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2002
Very nice bread. It's light and moist and easy to make. I have to leave my loaves in the oven a bit longer than recommended to ensure that the middle isn't doughy. Delicious!

Basic Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2002
I've been looking for a good curry sauce. This one was okay, but it was labour intensive and it seemed to be missing something. Not quite the authentic Indian taste I was hoping for. We enjoyed the meal, though, and I will probably make it again.

Crispy Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Dill Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2002
A very nice way to use up end-of-the-summer tomatoes and cukes. I served this with corn-on-the-cob, sliced ham, homemade bread, and cheese for a great lunch.

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2002
I won't make this very often because it's very rich and high in calories, but when you need a yummy, no-fail dessert that's guaranteed to please, this is the recipe to pull out. My parents drove 4,000 kms to visit us last week, and when I served them this hot fudge ice cream bar dessert they were very glad they came!

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2002
Not bad if you like the taste of cantaloupe. My preschooler didn't care for it, but it was a tasty way to use up half a large cantaloupe that I had sitting in the fridge. Very healthy.

Irish Potato Candy

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2002
These are very sweet and rich and yummy. We preferred them without the cinnamon, rolled into small balls. They would probably be great dipped in melted chocolate. I served them after dinner to our guests on St. Paddy's Day with homemade Irish Cream. We wouldn't eat them very often because of all the sugar and fat, but they make a great special treat.

Original Irish Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2002
This is the real thing! I served it to our guests after dinner on St. Paddy's day with Irish Potato Candy. They were very impressed that I made it myself! It's also delicious added to a cup of coffee.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2002
Good, old-fashioned, grandma-style cookies. I used fresh grated ginger, which gave the cookies a nice zing. I had to let the batter sit for a few minutes--initially, the dough was too soft to work with. They turned out great and my kitchen smells sooo good.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2002
MOIST! That would be the key word in describing this bread. Went over well with my family. Even my preschooler liked it. I think my mother, pumpkin bread maker extraordinaire, would be impressed. I did have to bake it much longer than the recommended 50 minutes. It took about 1 hr. and 15 minutes.
