Pan Fried Filets with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
It wasn't around long enough to take a picture 'cause it was SO GOOD! I was so tempted to use a splash of red wine to deglaze because I only had powdered bullion, but the flavours were FANtastic anyway! It tastes like something you would order in a fancy restaurant. My steak was absolutely perfect (rare) but I had to cut my husband's steak (must be well-done) into thick strips to finish it because the mushrooms were threatening to burn. Then, with both steaks in the pan (mine to reheat, his to finish) I started the finishing steps for the amazing sauce by swirling around the pan so the juices would get around and under the steak and mushrooms. The plating was gorgeous! We had been 'Christmas snacking' all day, so all I needed was the garlic mashed potatoes (no pepper--just marg and cream)to add to the plate. My husband LOVED it! I used black currant jam and Real mushrooms, too. Excellent!

Mom's Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
It gets ***** for the dessert-ability of it--it's very sweet. I cut the sugar by half and it was still sweet. BUT the consistancy was pure joy. My husband said it reminded him of custard and it does! For the topping, I only sprinkled on the brown sugar and it turned nice and crunchy. Next time, less or no sugar, and it'll be a dessert item that'll go over big!

Love Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
Looks really good with my modifications in my recipe note: as follows: watch out for msg--oh, well, couldn't find anything msg-free... I'm trying 250ml jars (very cute) with 4 servings of dry soup mix in each... omit ground beef instructions and put all pasta in top baggie to be set aside until soup almost done. simmer 45, add pasta, simmer another 10. nummy!

Spicy Crispy Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Fantastic starter recipe! Porportions were right on! I changed it up by: adding flour and water to make a batter, using MORE fresh ginger, MORE garlic, adding sesame oil, and a FABULOUS FLAVOUR BLAST: real orange juice, grated orange zest and orange marmalade--EVERYBODY at the potluck RAVED and ate it all!!! My husband said Make sure you bring home any leftovers!! I didn't use the chili paste, the sliced onion, or the red bell pepper; and I added shredded carrot for colour! The recipe multiplied perfectly up to 6 lbs of beef!

Batman's Best Caesar Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
This is fantastic! The first time, I did half the recipe and 2 cloves of garlic was just right for me. I used less oil (about 3/4 c.), less cheese (about half of recipe) and no anchovies (yeck). I didn't have any sour cream so I used a splash of buttermilk. I put in 1/4 c. olive oil into the blender first to 'catch' the rest of the ingredients, chucked everything else in and I did drizzle the last of the olive oil in while the blender was on. I dressed the romaine with it and added sauted greek chicken on top--all cold for a really hot day. WoW! My husband (v fussy) DEVOURED it and came home the next night saying 'I'm craving that salad again!' (Good thing I had more!) Will definitely do this again and am bringing some over to a friend. =-)

Warm and Limey Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
This recipe was a wonderful jumping off point for a super, tasty change of pace! My husband (picky eater!) ate every bite! To cut down on time and on the ingredients I didn't have, I made some alterations: no zest, no lettuce, no walnuts; substituted 1/2 t dijonnaise for mustard, only used 1/2 lb chicken, 1/4 c pine nuts added, 1 celery heart trimmed and chopped coarsely, 1/2 c dried cranberries, 1/4 c raisins, plus a few cranks of sea salt. The dressing was prepared and all ingredients were tossed into a large glass bowl and the dressing poured over top. Tossed salad a few times and served. Took about 20 minutes. Took my husband and I about 7 minutes to devour the whole thing! He even ate the celery! (Hates celery ;) ) Mmmm!!! Many Thanks to Deb Mitchell for this! jkp

Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
Sorry but unless you are hoping for something that tastes like dessert, try another recipe. The sweet potatoes only need a little sweetener as a side dish to a main course. The topping here tastes and looks exactly like toffee. Way too sweet.

I loved them. My husband didn't like the apricots, so I'm trying currants.

Easy French Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2003
Yep, too much milk; too much cinnamon. However, with a little more vanilla, a few more slices of brown bread and a recipe for blueberry sauce, it was great. Don't hold the bread in for too long. Count to 10 for each side: that should do it. I also used marg instead of oil.

Zucchini Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2003
This was GREAT! I scaled down the recipe to get a two-layered cake. It was easy and tasted wonderful and moist. My husband said our friends were SWOONING over it! ps most of them are Triathletes and *picky* about what they will eat!
