Lynn's Carrot Cake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
My husband wanted chocolate carrot cake for his birthday but as we are in the process of moving, I couldn't find my cook book with the recipe. This was pretty close to what I used, but not quite the same. I didn't have enough oil for the recipe and the amount indicated seemed like a ton so I substituted half for applesauce. I had just recently watched a cooking show where the pastry chef recommended mixing cake batter with a whisk instead of an automatic mixer. She said the mixer made the batter tough. I tried the whisk and it was easy and really did seem to improve the batter. It turned out really really good. Moist with a fantastic consistency. Excellent recipe!

No Bake Rum Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Corn syrup people - not corn starch. These are great. Use good rum to make the taste yummy.

Tzatziki Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Great recipe. I have made it a few times and it has always turned out well. I soemtimes add a little dill just for a change. To easily drain the cucumber, I use my salad spinner. I line the strainer portion with paper towel and then spin the cucumber. It dries it out really quickly.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
It was okay but came out way too overcooked. I think my oven is actually too well insulated. If anyone knows of a way of predicting the internal temperature based on roasting times and waiting times that would be helpful.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Excellent. I served it with whole wheat couscous and ratatouille. As one reviewer suggested I added a tablespoon of minced ginger. You must use real maple syrup though. A few reviewers commented on the thickness of the marinade. If you're using real maple syrup! It isn't that thick. My only complaint is the burnt on marinade in my glass pan. I think next time I will marinate in one container and cook in another. Thanks for the excellent recipe STARFLOWER.

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Great soup. Whenever I cook a ham, we freeze the bone to save for another day to make pea soup.

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Incredibly good and really easy. I did this with legs and thighs and left it to marinate overnight in a ziplock bag in the fridge. In the morning, I flipped the bag over and left it alone. My daughter threw it in the oven and it turned out great.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
This is now on my list of things I have to make at Christmas. I was a little worried when it came out of the oven. I was sure I was going to have to throw the whole thing out. It really didn't look like it would come out of the pan. I left it alone and when it cooled down, it popped right now. Thanks for the easy recipe.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
I was feeling lazy so I browned the chops in my cast iron frying pan and then put the cast iron pan into the oven with the foil over top - BIG MISTAKE. The pan got way too hot and the sauce dried out. The pork chops still tasted great though. I am making them again but following the directions exactly, using a baking dish. Great meal for a wintery night!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
This is an excellent recipe. The only modification I made was to add a bit of nutmeg and ground cloves to the topping with a bit more cinnamon. We were only 5 people, but we finished this off. It was fantastic. I used fresh from the orchard Cortland apples and fresh ground cinnamon. I have never added water to a crisp before, but it was just right. The sauce was really nice. Thanks for a great recipe.

Holiday Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008

Almond Tartlets

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
These were great. The almond paste was hard to get smooth, but it may just be the brand I bought.

Christmas Fruitcake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Fantastic. Wonderful flavor and really easy to do. I used up some old dried fruit I had on hand and then picked up a few other things on the ingredient list to finish it off. This year, I started it earlier so it would have more time to proof. What a great recipe. Nice light taste.

Tomato Basil Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
Wow this was good. We ate it hot when I made it and then had it cold leftover. I had bulk cous cous so I used 2 cups. I doubled the tomatoes because we really like tomatoes. Excellent and easy!

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
Excellent - only word for it. I used skinless drumsticks because that's what I had. Instead of water, I went for the red wine. We served it with penne. What a great meal. Thanks so much for posting this one Nancy!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Strangely enough my daughter who hates any sort of pasta or red sauce liked this. It was a HUGE recipe though and I ended up with two casseroles. The second, I froze and reheated later. The reheated one was actually better in my opinion.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
I had some dehydrated porcini mushrooms which I soaked in red wine and used in the sauce. The mushrooms made the sauce a beautiful brown colour. It was really good. Also, I added some garlic prior to browning the chicken.
