Diner-Style Baked Potato Home Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Delicious! Easy to prepare. Good, nourishing, home-style cooking. Like several of the others, we used bacon fat saved from cooking bacon. We sliced the potatoes a bit thicker too, works either way. We also made a MAYONNAISE-SOUR CREAM-RANCH DRESSING-GARLIC SAUCE TO PUT ON TOP OF POTATOES AND TO DIP ACCOMPANYING SAUSAGES IN. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THESE DELICIOUS POTATOES.

Great Easy Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
SCRUMPTIOUS WAFFLES! I am picky and critical, but these were award-winning for flavour, texture, appearance, and all-around eatability. I can see adding a bit of berries or chocolate for a variation. But just as they were, the lemon zest and vanilla made for a delicate touch that blends well with maple syrup, fruit, yoghurt, chocolate, whipping cream. I melted a pat of butter on mine and maple syrup and with maple sausages, these were divine. They did not stick in the waffle maker machine, either.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
These were good, but not great. The recipe needed a bit of tweaking. The dough was too dry to for everything to adhere properly, so an extra egg was needed. The bottoms baked too rapidly so the oven rack needed to be raised. The oven temperature needed to be lowered to make them 'soft and moist'...and they are not really a moist cookie. That having been said, they were ordinary, good cookies, not great.

Veggie Sneak In Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Taste: nothing special. Needs something more. Recipe: didn't hold together. Most meatballs and meatloaves need bread crumbs added, or oatmeal, etc. So I had to add that to the mixture to get it to adhere properly. The simple breadcrumb coating was bland and tasteless and dried out in the oven. The cook needs to adjust this recipe to make it better.

Pepper Pork Pockets

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
This mixture tastes great! We used fresh sweet red pepper and no garlic, and it still tasted terrific! Also instead of pita pockets we used tortilla wraps to make pockets. Still tasted great!

Mushroom Toast Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
The toast cups were very bland and did nothing to blend with the flavours of the mushroom filling, they each kind of stood out on their own. I think they needed something added to bind the flavours of the filling with the plainness of the toast cups better. The mushroom filling needed 2-3X more seasoning, lots more salt, and more flour than called for in the recipe to make it thick enough. Overall the flavours were very nice with the extra tweaking, the addition of the Parmeson on top was very nice too.

Creamy Mushroom Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Tasty! I've been looking for something that would temper the sweetness of squash, and this combination worked excellently. This dish is a creamy, wonderful-tasting accompaniment to many dishes, we served it with mashed potatoes and sausages, would go great with turkey at Thanksgiving, I think! Easy, too! The only difference was I baked my squash in the oven by cutting it in half and inverting into a pan with a bit of water. Also I used paprika and parsley for garnish and seasoning. Wonderful either way!!

Nothing special. Tuna and cream cheese. That' all.

Cheesecake Dessert Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Overall, an average cheesecake-type recipe. The biggest thing was that it was FAR too sweet, sugar had to be reduced substantially. The second was the graham crust needed flour added to have it hold together and set adequately. Otherwise, not bad. Ours came out on the richer, yellower side for a cheesecake type dessert and of rich taste.

Italian Sausage Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
This turned out wonderful. The texture and consistency were great (didn't fall apart like some lasagnas), the flavours were terrific. The homemade sauce went wonderfully with the dish. We used cottage cheese instead of ricotta, being the only difference, and no Parmesan. A great new use of Italian sausage...never would have thought. Thank you for this one!

Winter Vegetable Hash

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
The vegetables used made for a great flavour combination. I boiled up some water as I chopped the potatoes and squash, and blanched them in the hot water prior to cooking in the skillet, made for much faster cooking time (15 minutes maybe), potatoes and squash were tender that way. Also add kale right at the start in the pan, it takes a while to wilt. Good flavours. Ate it with turkey.....
