Milk Braised Pork Loin

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
OMG! This is amazing! Thank YOU, KEN! My Hubby thinks I can cook a little, now! The meat was tender, the milk browned perfectly into little chunks and were delicious. I served with mashed potatoes and mixed veggies. Hubby took a bite, and "Mmmmm! See what happens when you follow a recipe?!" *lol* And I learned a new technique! Thank you for your personal assistance and confidence in me (or was it the recipe? :D), and thank you, as well as, for this recipe, and for teaching me that I, too, can do a gourmet meal! And it was easy! Thanks again!

Bacon Spaghetti

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Thank you, Dali! This was wonderful -- A refreshing change. Didn't have garlic, so used about 1 tablespoon of Mrs. Dash. I only made 1/2 a pound of spaghetti (forgot I was halving the recipe and kept the other ingredients the same except I added 4 tablespoons olive oil and 1 tablespoon bacon grease. The calories probably more than doubled, but it was sooooooo good.

Easy Fettuccine Primavera

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Very good basic recipe -- and oh, so quick-and-easy! -- and very edible, but nothing incredibly special (So sorry!). The second time, I browned a pound of extra lean ground beef, sauteed fresh onion, bell pepper, celery, mushrooms, and a bag of frozen peas and carrots, and then added the sauce (Not Ragu). I also took a step out of the Easy Spaghetti page and cooked the noodles with the sauce. (I would give it 12*) :D

Cheater Pancake Syrup 2

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I made this with 1 c white sugar and 1 c brown sugar. I had no maple extract and I put in only 1/2 tsp of vanilla. The first day, I found the vanilla a little overpowering and wondered if it is really necessary. The second day, the flavours had meshed and it was amazing. The fate of the vanilla in this recipe might be saved yet. However, I agree with France (from Quebec) that this is good enough to fool most -- (I'm from Ontario so it would fool me) *wink, wink* -- Possible crystalization concerned me, but I was prepared to re-heat the syrup to liquify the sugar again; however, I put it in an old syrup bottle and -- No Problem! -- The container must be airtight! Those who thought it was too sweet probably have never had pure maple syrup extracted from Maple Tree sap. It is sooooo sweet that it makes your teeth hurt. (They make little candies out of it so the four year old who thought it was candy paid this recipe the highest compliment!) For an Ontario "girl" who likes the price, this is AMAZING! No more buying syrup for me! Thanks Leetah!

Sourdough Starter I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
This is wonderful! As a first experience with a Sourdough Starter, this was a fun RollerCoaster ride. I started this on Sunday. By Thursday night, I was anxious because it looked as though it had only separated after the original gas-making exercise. I was reassured by wonderful people on the RE that, as long as it wasn't a strange colour, I was fine. So, I fed it Friday morning (had to move to a bigger container) and used it Friday night to make bread. I forgot to take the liquid into account so ended up adding more flour than required in the recipe, but that is not THIS recipe's fault. I love it! (As I have Celiac Disease, I love the fact that it has no gluten in it!) It rocks! and is resting until Wednesday, when I will try bread again and amend this review (if necessary), but so far the stars remain at 5. Thanks, Becky! You have restored the fun and anticipation in breadmaking with one simple little recipe!

Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
AMAZING! I made the dough in the breadmaker. I had to keep punching this monster dough down every 15 minutes or so because it kept blowing the lid off a 3 lb loaf bread maker. *lol* I had to tie Hubby down when they were in the fridge as he kept asking when they'd be ready. End of story: The wait was well worth it! :D Thank you!

Chicken with Buttery Lemon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
This was amazing without lemon pepper (didn't have) or Italian Seasoning (cutting down on sodium), but I used Mrs. Dash instead. Simply wonderful! Thank you!

Ragu Easy One-Pot Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This is awesome! And oh so very easy! I've made this as written six times in the last three weeks as it's really quick to "whip up" after a tiring day at work and it is awesome in its simplicity and taste. Tonight, I worked late and stomach was a little queasy, so to cut down on the acid of the sauce, I added a tsp of lemon juice, 1 tsp of sugar and a dash of cinnamon. To add protein to mine, I added 1/4 cup of cottage cheese and nuked in the microwave for 45 seconds. (Hubby doesn't like cottage cheese.) Mine was still awesome! This is a Classy Classic and forever in my repertoire so that I can call myself a Gourmet! :D

Hungarian Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
I loved this .... used red wine vinegar instead of the white -- no salt served on a bed of lettuce. Nice change of pace. Will be a staple on my menu.

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Simply to die for, but work intensive when you make your own caramel sauce, whipped cream, and pudding. Hubby went over the edge! AWESOME! Since there are only two of us, I made 16 little bowls. (Hubby can eat four in one sitting to my one, so next time, I will split into 3 big bowls and 4 little ones.) Much better second and third day after the flavours have melded. Thanks for an absolutely guilty pleasure!

Russian Black Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This bread is simply amazing! The first time I made this, I used molasses because we didn't have any dark corn syrup, and increased the coffee granules to 1 tablespoon (by accident) -- and it worked. Just what real bread should taste like and I made it! Thank you Mary for submitting this awesome recipe.
