It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2005
Reading the other reviews, I did not put the tomato juice in, but put in another can of tomato sauce. I've only used my slow cooker a few times, and although I believe it brought out the flavours considerably, I think the ground beef tastes better when it is not slow cooked. Next time, I may add the cooked ground beef an hour before the end of cooking.

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2005
Moist and delicious, I followed this recipe exactly and I don't think it could have come out better! Next time, I will add craisins for a different taste. A perfect complement to the Irish Lamb Stew (also on allrecipes)

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2005
The stew was fabulous. I used 4 pounds of lamb shoulder (trimmed off much of the fat), and added 1 cup of Guinness instead of the white wine. I did not have thyme, so I used rosemary instead. I also added extra garlic. You MUST make the Irresistible Irish Soda Bread (allrecipes as well). Next time, I will add more vegetables.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2004
When I received an immersion blender as a gift for my birthday, the first recipe I tried was this one, and all of the rave reviews are true... this is an amazing soup. The first time I tried it, I used one 8 oz package (it was too rich) The second time (I must admit, a few days later), I used half of a package (4 oz) and it turned out much better. I can't even imagine trying it with the two! Second admission.. I licked the bowl! It's that good. One thing of note: after the first try, I now always leave out the onion/butter step. I didn't like finding little pieces of onion in an otherwise smooth soup.

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
I used the marinade on both chicken (as called for in the recipe) and tenderized cubes of beef, and it was wonderful. The sauce was good too, I doubled the amount of peanut butter. They didn't last long on the platter!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2003
These are the cutest things. I made them for a cocktail party last weekend, and I'm still getting emails raving about them. One guy took one home. Rather than whipping the cream cheese, I microwaved it and tstirred in a bit of onion soup mix to give it some flavour, and then piped it in using a parchment paper cone. I have to admit, they weren't that tasty, but the visual presentation made up for it big time. I put it on a frosty blue tray covered in saran wrap, and added a cheese ball igloo. Make sure you warn people about the toothpick (sometimes it's not that visible) My only problem is.. how am I going to top this recipe for my next cocktail party?!?
