Lion House Wassail

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
I love this so much, I serve it year-round! My changes: add 1/2 T balsamic vinegar, 1/4 c brown sugar (no white), 2 c water [or more], 1 L. cinnamon stick-broken up, minced ginger root, 3 T lime juice, 1 c peach juice, apple cider [Organic 946 ml is awesome] instead of apple juice, 3 T honey, a bunch of orange zest, more allspice, more cloves, 2 oranges juiced into the pot and add the empty halves, quartered-squeezed-scored lemons; it's different every time... at Christmas, mandarin oranges, halved, squeezed and deeply scored go in ,too. The floating fruit makes it more festive, and the daring can sip it unstrained to get luscious bits of pulp.

Special Occasion Stuffed Crown Pork Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
I, too, am rating this for the stuffing which was TOTALLY awesome and made my whole Christmas dinner Very Special. I love it. I made a yield for 4 and stuffed a roaster chicken (3 lbs) and also put some in a loaf pan because there was so much. I am so glad I did because the smells and tastes were out-of-this-world! I didn't use any egg and substituted a simplified type of wassail (read - I didn't have all the spices!! 8-) for the juice. After a while I had to re-moisten the stuffing, so I used chicken broth. The apple chunks were super with the peel on. It was even better (if that's possible) the next day. THX!!!

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!

A Firefighter's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
awesome recipe! for those with squeeemish hands, I always use those latex gloves you can get at groc or drug stores called Exam Gloves or similar. They are super for cutting onions, garlic, meat, and other food as well as near hot food (like near the hot oil in the frying pan), cleaning house, etc. Try em out!

Curried Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Omitted oats and egg and had it like a stew. Awesome! Works with frozen mango chunks too. Also used other nuts like cashews (num) or pecans (also num)!

Caribbean-Spiced Roast Chicken

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
LOVED this chicken!! I wanted a nice-looking skinless chicken roasted in an oven bag and this was it! Lots of interesting flavours and nice and moist meat. No lime, no rum, no brown sugar -- I just sprinkled everything on and 2 t white sugar last. In a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes. Will make again!!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
Not your typical lime/cilantro bean salad! I loved it! A couple of changes: used 6 Bean Blend and kidney beans, canned corn, sweet (white) onion, 1/2 cilantro (don't like it that much). Stayed fresh and very good a couple of days in the fridge. Husband loved it. I tried a straight-across switch of the red wine vinegar with balsamic vinegar (which I like) and it was WAY too overpowering. I added more of the other ingredients to even out the tastes. All in all, an awesome will-do-again recipe.

Layered Seafood Dip

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
Fantastic! We always gorge ourselves whenever I make this. If only they made crackers smaller so we could get them in our mouths faster! :)

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
Very tasty!! Mushrooms & onions were sauteed about 15 min; no processing; oregano instead of thyme (don't like it); + 1/2 c broth; + some milk (I found the recipe VERY rich, but I had simmered it down quite a bit) -- it's a keeper for me!

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
This recipe came out fantastic. Hubby loved it. Not the recipe's fault, but just can't get used to ground turkey -- I miss my Beef!

Greek Lamb-Feta Burgers With Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Love the Greek flavours!! I am making my own ground meat and I'm glad to have such a great recipe. It's too hard to do the burger/pita thing, so I'm just doing burgers, "Greek Style Potatoes" and "Tzatziki Sauce" -- all with Extra Garlic Cloves!!

Apricot Brandy, Peach Schnapps Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
best cake i ever made! will definitely make again, especially for parties or special occasions. used Creme de Peache, orange zest and orange marmalade. Maybe I overbeat it, but there was SO much batter the cake almost over-ran the pan. You MUST serve this cake warm or re-warmed... SO scrumptious!! I was tempted to over-decorate with chopped nuts or powdered sugar, but when you see the serving and how understated it is, it only adds to the spectacular surprise taste and texture. Definitely reserve some syrup and glaze to serve on the side (warmed).

Yam and Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Whoo Hoo! VERY delicious! notes: watch out for soaked yams: yams will peel a lot nicer if you don't leave them soaking in the "cold bath"... over-done sauce: keep your eye on the sauce or it turns into syrup--also, reduce the sweetness of the sauce as the yams are very, very good by themselves... crispy apples: don't over-microwave the apples because the slightly crunchy texture is such a nice surprise in this predictably Orange dish. Even people who had never seen apples with yams were very impressed: I should have made more!!

California Salad Bowl

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
This was SO GOOD my husband wolfed all his down and ate half of mine (wasn't hungry enough to eat the whole thing, it was so huge)! Just a couple changes: a plain ol' whisk was fine to combine ingredients, 1/4 c only mayo, only a few drops tabasco, no oil, no garlic clove (just some garlic powder), no olives (altho I would have liked some black ones), no chips (I couldn't have eaten them if I wanted to!)... I carefully spooned on dressing over top of the assembled salad -- the dressing could very easily have been a very scumptious dip. I could see me making this again even as a dip with some salsa on the side. mmmm!!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
OH YEAH! This is the one! whip butter 5 min. add dry ingred 1/2c at a time & whip 2 min ea time. at end, whip approx 10 min. roll with hands into golf ball size. press decoration (eg candied cherry and/or shredded coconut) in, but not too hard as cookies will spread some. bake approx 14 min at 325 degrees. next time, I'll bake 13 min as tops were snow white, but I like the bottoms not so tan. Absolutely no problem with over-crumbly at all and still genuinely melt-in-your-mouth.
