Easy Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2015
I used chicken broth instead of the water; organic condensed cream of mushroom soup instead of the cream of chicken soup and I added a couple of tablespoons of organic powdered chicken boullion (along with a bit of sage and thyme, since I used mushroom soup, instead of chicken). Next time, I will add a couple of cloves of garlic, too. Oh, and 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese was not nearly enough to cover a 9" x 13" dish -- I doubled that. I agree that spaghetti, as another reviewer mentioned, is not the best choice for holding the sauce, but Tetrazzini is supposed to be spaghetti, so you'd have to change the name, I would think, if you used a different pasta.

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2015
This was delicious. Since I didn't have quite as much meat (I used ground chicken) as the recipe called for, and I had cooked basmati rice to use up, I briefly sautéed the chopped cabbage and then added a bit of water to steam and mostly cook it, then I set is aside, while I cooked the meat and onions. Then, I added as much cabbage as I thought was appropriate,* along with the tomato sauce and simmered it for a while longer. Then I added the rice and adjusted the seasoning, allowing the rice to take on some of the flavours of the mixture. I didn't bother baking this in the oven; the dutch oven on the stovetop worked beautifully. Next time I make this, I plan to add some chopped bacon, for more depth of flavour. (Just don't tell my Ukrainian MIL, lol.) *Leftover cabbage is always nice to have on hand, anyway!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
I did not care for this recipe. My husband ate his but didn't want it for lunch the next day (that never happens). I don't usually toast it before I cook it; not sure if I want to try that again. :-( It seemed lacking in flavour, except that it was a bit bitter, even though I thoroughly rinsed the quinoa before cooking it. I am not sure I want to use the red variety again, at this point...

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
Finally, a recipe for baked beans I can make without pork, and even better, in the slow cooker! I substituted turkey bacon and it worked just fine. The only caveat for that is to just barely cook the turkey bacon if you use it, as it does get a bit overcooked, otherwise. I found that it took longer than the stated time - by a few hours - despite the fact that my slow cooker tends to be too hot / cooks faster than many recipes call for. (I did soak the beans overnight - a bit longer, even, but they still weren't soft enough at the end of the suggested cooking time.)

Chef John's Tiramisu

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
Thank you, Chef John, from one Chef to another, for posting a PROPER Tiramisu recipe! I'm rather sick of all the "modern" frou-frou imposters with various liqueurs and such masquerading as the real thing! ;-)

San Francisco Style Bagels

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
When it comes to baking, especially breads, weight is much more accurate than volume. 1 Cup of bread flour = 4.5 ounces -- BUT, here's the caveat: make sure your flour has been stirred if you're measuring by volume, because flour settles a LOT during storage. Volume measurements for baking always assume that the (flour) has not settled.

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
We all loved this one, but I did make a few changes, partly based on some other reviews, like adding a layer of refried beans on the bottom. Also, I found it to be a little dry, so I will add more salsa next time (and perhaps a bit of chicken broth...).

Grilled Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
These were delicious! At first, it seemed like a lot of work for burgers, but it's well worth it! Next time though, I will just use my food processor to finely chop the veggies. Some found them them a wee bit spicy (I didn't think so), so if you're squeamish that way, be careful.
