Creamed Chicken over Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
Sometimes leftover chicken seems bland and dry, even when it was moist and delicious when it first came out of the roasting pan. This is a great way to put the moisture and the flavour back in! I added a bit of garlic to the sauce, and I will serve it with steamed carrots instead of beans (as my 2 preschoolers won't eat anything green), on a bed of rice. Would also be great with some mushrooms or cream of mushroom soup, if your family will eat them!

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I live in New Zealand and couldn't find non-dairy creamer (vanilla flavoured or otherwise), or instant tea. Not even at the international groceries or the bulk food places -- maybe it's just a North American thing? So I worked around it and am really happy with my substitutions! Stir 1t vanilla into 2C sugar until it's completely blended in. If you have time, spread the vanilla sugar out on a baking tray and allow it to dry for a few hours, then crumble it up with your fingers or in your food processor. But in a pinch you can use it immediately, it just might make the final mixture go a little bit stiff. Sift a 50g packet of coconut cream powder into the sugar (you have to sift this or it will come out in lumps). Add 2C full fat/regular instant milk powder (creamier than skim milk powder). Then add all the spices including 1t nutmeg, 1t allspice and 1/2t white pepper (gives it a lovely bite but not at all spicy). Just make a regular mug of tea and add the mixture -- yum! For my taste, you do need at least 2 tablespoons of the mix for each mug of tea.

Special Butterscotch Chip Cookies in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
Okay, we all agree they're really yummy. And they make absolutely brilliant gifts -- my 3-year-old helped me fill our jars and we gave them to all his friends so they can do some baking with their moms. Now for the important stuff -- how does it look in the jar? I wanted to "pretty it up" a little (and my kids don't like nuts), so I replaced the pecans with 1/2C chopped glace cherries (red & green mixed together) and used white chocolate pieces instead of butterscotch to get a Christmas color scheme. And the order you put things in is critical! Some ingredients just won't lay flat on top of others. Also, it's really hard to get it all to fit in a jar. If you can find a long, narrow, flat-bottomed glass or something similar, use it to press each layer down as hard as you can. Even doing that, I had to cut down on some of the ingredients. So here's what I came up with that works really well: 8: (bottom layer) 1/4C cocoa (we like 'em chocolatey!) 7: 1-1/8C flour, 1/2t baking soda, 1/4t baking powder, 1/4t salt 6: 1C CocoPops -- press! 5: 1/2C brown sugar -- press! 4: 1/2C white sugar 3: 1/2C white chocolate chips -- press! 2: 1/3C cherries (or nuts, if you prefer) 1.(top layer) fill to the top with coconut and press again. I can usually only fit about 1/2 or 3/4C.

Creole Tuna

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I would change the name to "Simple Creole Tuna" so that nobody would expect a gourmet dish. It's very straightforward and easy to make, and my fussy family loved it. I didn't have green peppers so just sauteed an onion instead, I'm sure the flavor was slightly different but it still came out just great. Comfort food at it's finest, this will be making a regular appearance at our dinner table!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
Amazing how such a seemingly dry batter can turn into moist, dense, perfect brownies!!! Don't change a thing! Icing is yummy but not necessary; chocolate chips sprinkled on top right out of the oven works well too, as does a lighter chocolate glaze. Nuts optional; good with and without them.

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
These do work SO perfectly, I don't change a thing except I make 8 large bagels instead of 6 gianormous ones. When the dough comes out of my bread machine I shape them and pop them into a warm (not hot) oven for 10 minutes while the water boils and they rise even more. Just as good as any bakery, and way cheaper!

Banana Raisin Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
Oddly enough, mine took the full 90 minutes to bake in the center. I used bananas which I'd previously frozen & thawed, so maybe that explains why it took so long? Regardless, it was YUMMY! A bit sweeter than necessary, so next time I'll take other reviewer's advice and cut back a bit on the sugar, and probably substitute half the oil for applesauce. Quick & easy to make up; just make sure you give yourself a little extra time for baking if you use frozen bananas.

Pineapple Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
Turns out EVERY time! Makes 3 dozen regular muffins plus a dozen mini muffins. I replace 1C oil with 1C applesauce or any pureed tinned fruit that I have handy. It's a lovely, moist recipe and a great way to use up zucchini from the garden.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Wow -- perfect balance of tart and sweet. Lovely crispy crust. But as another reviewer said, you really need to put tinfoil around the edges for the first 15 minutes of cooking (at the higher temperature) or they'll be burnt. In my oven, anyways!

Marinated Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
I can't believe how easy this was to make -- tastes every bit as good as the ones you get from the deli. I forgot it was simmering and left it on the stove for about 30 minutes longer than called for, but the mushrooms (I just used brown button ones) still had good texture and weren't too soggy. Guests couldn't believe it was homemade!

Salsa II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Really great recipe! Only flaw was the tomatoes got way too mushy before the onion was cooked; taste is perfect but texture is sadly like spaghetti sauce. Next time I'll saute the onions first. I was out of cilantro but had Chinese mint in the garden so substituted that but it's quite strong so could have used less than I did. I canned most of this recipe and kept enough aside for a truly yummy feast tonight (corn chips with salsa, enchiladas with salsa, mmmm!) I'll definitely be making this again and again!

Asian Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
I make this salad for every barbecue we attend, and I'm always asked for the recipe. If I don't have almonds available I sometimes substitute peanuts or pumpkin seeds; either one works very well.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Wow, this is a great recipe! So simple. As suggested I replaced tamarind pulp with Worcester sauce & lemon juice. I also didn't have bean sprouts available so used very lightly steamed shredded cabbage which was just great. I also added fresh coriander when serving -- YUMMY!

Easy Delicious Old Fashioned Cole Slaw Dressing

I didn't have buttermilk or pickle juice so Iused 1/2 cup milk + 3 tbsp vinegar, and it still turned out great! Perfect amount for 8 servings of cole-slaw.

Poached Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2005
I replaced 2 cups water with 2 cups chicken stock for extra flavour. I also added 2 tbsp fish sauce and 1 tbsp peppercorns, which I thought "kicked it up a notch"! NOTE: This is also really good served chilled on a hot summer's day.

Maple Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2005
Perfect! What a great flavor!!! I ran out of maple syrup so I used artificial maple flavoring and it worked great. I also added bacon dripping to my stuffing it was an excellent addition.

Chicken Bog

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
The flavour is wonderful and it's SO easy! Instead of rice you could use potatoes. Carrots are really good in this too. I also doubled the amount of onions.
