French Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Definitely a 5 star recipe and would rate it even higher if I could. Easy and delicious. Was a big hit with guests. Won't be buying French bread again. This is it. You've just got to try this recipe.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Didn't change a thing and it was a big hit. Served it with a German theme meal. Guests raved about it.

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.

Potato Leek Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Easy and tasty. I didn't weigh the potatoes and likely used more like 2-3 lbs. so the proportion of leeks to potatoes was slightly different than in the recipe. Very yummy. No need for salt and pepper. Was very flavourful as it was.

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Easy, delicious, quick. Can't ask for better than that. Followed some suggestions made by other reviewers; a little less lemon and a little less dill. Lots of compliments and a recipe I'll use again. This review is amazing considering I've always said that I don't like salmon. I do now!

Apple Rhubarb Crumble

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
When the comment at the table is, "this is good enough for company" the recipe is way up there in the ratings. I like a topping with oatmeal so added oats but aside from that I followed the recipe. Served warm with a little good quality French vanilla ice cream... Yum! Lots of good comments around the table about this recipe.

Flank Steak a la Willyboy

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Made a few changes just to do something differernt for Christmas but still rate this recipe a 5 for sure. Batter cooks up beautifully. I added chunks of white chocolate, chopped walnuts and dried cranberries rather than the chocolate chips and brickly chips. These would be good with the addition of anything along these lines, e.g. Smarties. Will keep this as my basic cookie recipe.

Spinach Pomegranate Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
The taste and the VISUAL are both important with salads. This one has good blend of colours as well as flavourful. Easy but looks a little special.

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Have cooked for many years and was told that this was the best roast of pork I have ever cooked. Definitely will use this recipe again. Didn't have any white wine so just made regular gravy. The garlic made it very flavourful. Wine would have made it that much better. Used a meat thermometer, removed roast from oven at 160 degrees and let it sit about 20 minutes. Was really moist. Cold leftovers have been tasty too.

Moroccan Meat Cigars

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This recipe rates a 5 because I will definitely make these again. Could be kicked up a bit as far as spices go but people's tastes vary so I still give this five stars. Quite easy but worth doubling the recipe. Might as well make more when you're at it. Even doubling would be good for only three people.

Fresh Spring Rolls With Thai Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
Great recipe that can be adapted to whatever you have and like. I used carrots and cukes cut like matchsticks, baby shrimp, cilantro, peanuts and vermicilli noodles. Easier to make than I thought and were a big hit. Definitely will make these again.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Have finally mastered making cabbage rolls that are tender. I added about 1/4 tsp. garlic powder to the meat. Doubling the sauce is a good idea as suggested by others. Easy to make in a slow cooker. Won't bother looking further for a better recipe. This is it!
