Freezer Cucumber Pickles

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I too was very sceptical but figured I may as well try it. We absolutley loved it,it's even better after being frozen, if they get that far. And like everyone else I mucked with the recipe as well, but not with the flavour. I swithched it from slices to spears. I sliced the cucs into spears, beat them about in the bowl for awhile to get rid of the seeds,then rinsed and started the recipe.They are a great alternative to chips or pretzels. I also tried the same recipe with green cherry tomatoes and they worked out great although none of them have made it to the freezer so I don't know how that works out yet. You just can't use the ones that are really small and green, they are still too bitter for the sugar to win over. Anywhere close to full size is O.K.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I had never been a real friend of salom, but I have one kid that loves fish, so every year for his birthday, I do a new fish recipe. I picked this one last year, followed it exactly, and I have been totally won over with salmon. I now have a freezer full of it. I have simplified the recipe down to a basic rub of dry ingredients with the same flavours that is on hand at all times ( and work well on pork ribs or roasts too ) done it on a cedar plank....which is amazing. Overall............it's a winner.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
This recipe took me from "what the heck am I supposed to do with all these peppers??? " to " we need to plant more next year, many more!!! Time consuming but well worth it, may as well do a big batch because they really don't last long.

Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Having had to re-think my eating habits, I was looking for a broccoli soup recipe that was low in calories. I was skeptical about how it would taste without all the cream and the cheese that's in my favorite recipe from here......but I have to say that this one is not missing on anything.........except the calories. I like my soups a bit chunkier so instead of using a hand blender, I used a pastry cutter to mash it up, and added a dash of worchestershire and a bit more garlic. This one is my favorite now, and I will be using the potatoe as a substitute for a thickener in many other soups from now on.

Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
This is a keeper for sure. Took some hints from the comments but followed the recipe for the most part. I went straight into the roaster with the roast S&P and bacon..........started it out at 375 while I made the sauce. Used Maple Syrup instead of honey but other than that stuck to the recipe. Poured that over the roast and turned the heat down to 325 and cooked till the thermometer reached 145 basting a few times. Took it out and tented it till the rest of the meal was done. It was very tasty and juicy, the sauce did not dry out on the pan for me........I might try starting it at 400 next time just to crisp up the bacon a little more, but other than that this one is worthy of trying out on my biggest critic.......my Mom ;)

Hot Pepper Jelly

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I tried this recipe and many others for hot pepper jelly. I too have trouble getting it to set even when doubling the pectin, I think it's a chemical thing going on between the pectin and the amount of "HOT". doesn't matter though........it's a hit even when runny, will triple the pectin next time and see if that helps.

Rosemary Jelly

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Loved this recipe but I too will increase the rosemary next time, It tastes great but people keep saying it's lime jello ( but I know it's not and will keep working on it )
