Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Superb flavour. Didn't have the variety of beans the recipe required but that didn't matter. This recipe would work well for any combination. Makes lots. Won't even think about looking for another recipe for baked beans. Don't think I could improve on it.

Grandma Jeanette's Amazing German Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Didn't change a thing and it was a big hit. Served it with a German theme meal. Guests raved about it.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
When the family says "make that any time" it's a 5 star recipe. I used very old cheddar (7 years old) and topped it with some bread crumbs mixed with some parmesan. The bacon, garlic and onion added lots of flavour too. Easy and tasty.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Wow! So basic but so good. Very tasty yet inexpensive. I made a half recipe and only change I made was to double the cinnamon. Personal preference. I always double cinnamon. Also, cut the apple into small pieces. End result was lots of praise and not much left. The crunchie top was lost on the second day but still good. I will try reducing sugar next time but recipe as is was amazing. If you can't take compliments, pass up on this one.

Sweet-Sour Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Followed the exact recipe and took to a potluck. Not even a teaspoonful was left. Froze some and saved for later. Was just as good as fresh and got rave reviews. Can't ask for better than that.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
This is so easy and so tasty. I used 1/3 strip of bacon for each. Aside from that did everything per the recipe. Highly recommend. Easy and tasty. What more could you ask for?

Smothered Bacon Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
We had this dish for dinner tonight. At the end of a day at work this was a breeze to put together. Once it was in the oven I could relax. I made some slight changes based on reviews: cooked bacon first, cut into small pieces and mixed with the soup mixture. Sauteed a few mushrooms and topped the dish with them towards the end of the cooking time. I decreased the sour cream by half. Made some of these changes for ease and to cut back on fat. Went over well and was very easy. Might be a good dish with meatballs made with ground chicken or turkey. Will make this one again.

Grandma's Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Definitely a 5 star recipe. Had raves about these dumplings and they were so easy to make. I made the recipe as is and found it a bit sweet. That's simple to fix. I had extra apple pieces so I just added them around the dumplings. That was a plus. Took the advice of another reviewer and covered the dish for the last half of the cooking time. A recipe that is so easy and receives such great compliments is definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing it.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
Since I didn't stick to the recipe exactly I have to give it a 4. I used only one package of cream cheese and decreased the sugar to 1/3 cup. Added a splash (probably 2 tsp.) lemon juice. Topped the cream cheese with some raspberry jam that had been heated in the microwave to make it easy to spread. Brushed the top with butter so that cut back on the butter. Then sprinkled with sugar. These were a huge hit. Took them to work and they disappeared faster than anything I've shared with my co-workers in the past. There were lots of questions about how to make them. This recipe is very versatile. Have fun with it! Don't make it unless you can handle lots of compliments. Rated as a 4 only because I made changes.

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
No doubt in my mind. This is a five star recipe. And it's so easy. Used to live in Halifax so have had some great donairs. This one is right up there with the ones from Halifax. Wouldn't change a thing except to triple the amount in order to have some to freeze for a second meal. Huge thanks for this recipe. Round two of this review - made these a second time but multiplied the recipe times 5 so have some made ahead. One of the comments was "This is a home run!" Didn't change a thing other than making a larger batch.

Tortilla Beef Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
This was easy, tasty but too salty for my taste. Definitely a 5 star recipe if the salt can be reduced. I think it was the chips that made it so salty.

Tuna Salad with Cranberries

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
The cranberries add pizzazz and turn an ordinary tuna sandwich into something special. Such a simple thing and makes a big difference. Have made this several times.

Awesome Baked Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I'll make this dish again. Very easy and tasty. Since I made a change, I rated it as a 4 star recipe. I used one large clove of garlic. That was just enough to complement the scallops. Five cloves would have been way too much. I used crushed cracker crumbs since I didn't have any bread crumbs. They are crunchier than bread crumbs and were the perfect topping. This is an easy meal to make at the end of a work day. So simple and tasty.

Nonalco Punch

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
This is so easy and so good. I left out the sugar completely and it was perfect. The gingerale and pineapple juice are sweet enough. Served this at our Canada Day celebration today and there were lots of complements and everyone had seconds. I made an ice ring with straight cranberry juice to keep it cool. Be sure to add the almond extract. It melds the other flavours together. This is a keeper.

Strawberry Angel Food Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
This recipe is a keeper. I amended it because I like to cut back on the sweetness. I used only half the sugar and I made my own glaze using the Strawberry Glazed Pie recipe on this site. I left the sugar out of the glaze completely because it was already sweet enough from the jello powder. This was a great dessert for our neighbourhood Canada Day celebration. Looked great and people came back for seconds. I made this the day before and I think this helped the bottom two layers blend together well. Yum!

Traditional French Canadian Tourtiere

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
I scaled this down because there would have been way too much. The flavour was amazing. I've made tourtiere many times and the seasoning in this was the best. It was quite crumbly though so next time I will mix in some mashed potatoes to see if that will hold it together. Gave this one a four because of it crumbling but once that is fixed it will be the only tourtiere recipe I'll use.

Strawberry Glazed Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This pie didn't last long in my house but even so, the next time I make it I'll tweak it a bit. I'm going to use less sugar next time. I had some plain vanilla cookies that I wanted to use up so I made a crust with them using the same method as for a basic graham cracker crust except without adding more sugar. Result was very good. Used the trick of chilling the pie crust before brushing with egg yolk. That worked well. This pie has great eye appeal. The colour is amazing. With strawberries fresh from the garden, what could make a better dessert in early summer?

Imitation Crabmeat Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
I used less Italian dressing than asked for because of comments in the reviews. Turned out really well. Was even better after sitting for a day in the fridge. I'll definitely make this again. Four stars because I changed the recipe a bit. I save five stars for results after doing the recipe exactly as is. Thanks for this one.

Sunshine Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
No rave reviews at our dinner table. Was hoping that it would be a hit because it's so easy, but it was just so-so.

Potluck Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
This recipe gets 5 stars by me because I would make it again and would serve it to guests. Noted some of the suggestions by other reviewers. Added about 1/4 cup of chicken broth to the sauce. No problems with the casserole being too dry. Also, the crunch of the celergy really added something to this dish. Used a whole onion (a small one) as suggested by a reviewer. Next time will try adding a bit of paprika to step up the flavouring. But even without that, it was very good. The cornflake topping added something for eye appeal and a bit of crunch too. Nice change to not use canned soup for a casserole and avoid too much salt. This recipe goes in my "keepers" file. Thanks.
