Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I give this one a 4.5. My husband has never really had meatloaf before (seriously) and he liked it a lot. He even had sandwiches out of it the next day which he thought were great. My two year old and I also loved it. Hubby requested it again this week. I too put the brown sugar ketchup with a dash of worschester on the top, not the bottom.

Fire Roasted Tomato and Feta Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
My husband liked this more than I did. I thought the fire roasted tomatoes gave an interesting flavour but I would not make again. My husband was crazy for it, which surprised me. Just ok, IMHO. I gave the extra star for my hubby's licked clean plate.

Maple Roast Turkey and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
Turkey turned out great and definitely make the gravy. it was SO good. I made a roux of flour and butter and just added the drained drippings to that. Everyone loved it. The carcass also made a fantastic turkey soup.

Kosher Salt Encrusted Prime Rib Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I think this could have been great, but when I moved my roast half way through cooking, a lot of the crust cracked and fell off. I made the mistake of adding more salt, which was a huge error. It just melted right into the meat and made it so salty. I almost ruined the roast and as it was I had to chuck a bunch of the one side. The roast was still juicy and I really think it would have been great if not for my mistake. I also did not like that I could not use the juices to make gravy because it was just too salty. I will try something different next time, thanks.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I cut the recipe in half and had lots for my gingerbread cake. I thought it was just enough cream cheese taste. My sister took one lick and said "HOW MUCH BUTTER IS IN THAT ICING!??" To clarify, she liked it, just thought it tasted super rich. I followed the recipe exactly, other than halving it. Would use again, maybe adding a hint of lemon or orange for a different flavour. Quite good.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
This recipe is SO Good! Amazing tasting Gingerbread. I too upped the spices as per other reviews. I doubled the cinnamon and cloves and brought the ginger right up to one tablespoon. I also added a 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce for extra moisture. My husband hates gingerbread and even he thought it was delicious. Usually when I make a loaf cake I give most of it away because I lose interest after the first slice-not this time. I will definitely make again, and soon! I used a cream cheese icing on top and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and some minced crystalized ginger. Decadent and so far beyond the Starbucks version (which is what I was trying to achieve) it's unreal. Never again will I consider spending $3.00 on one slice of that loaf when I can make this far superior one anytime. EXCELLENT.

Jamaican Jerked Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
This is truly a tasty recipe, but I found it lacked the heat that authentic jerk chicken has. Mind you, really authentic jerk chicken can be intolerably hot for the uninitiated. I find that the quality of jalapeno peppers has really declined over the last ten to fifteen years, such that they don't pack much of a punch anymore (you shouldn't be able to eat a raw one, but often you can). Instead try a SMALL amount of scotch bonnet peppers instead. Cut them open, seed them and remove the ribs. Do NOT touch your eyes, face or loved ones after handling! You'll find these pack a much bigger punch for your dollar. Try just one pepper for this recipe at first, then add more the next time if you like it spicier.

Blueberry Waffles with Fast Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
This review is for the sauce only, I did not make the waffles. Instead I added blueberries to a buttermilk pancake mix (I'm lazy) and made the sauce to go on top. The whole thing took me no more than 10 minutes, now that's my kind of breakfast! My husband and 20 month old loved it. I would add a tich of sugar next time as my blueberries could have been sweeter, but it was great as is. This would also be great over ice cream. I've been thinking about it ever since! Delish.

Cioppino

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I made a few adjustments to this soup, as I was looking for more of a bouillabaisse. I added some fennel seed (1/4 tsp) and some Pernod instead of the white wine. I also added a pinch of saffron and used the seafood I had (mussels, seabass, calamari, shrimp & scallops.) I served this with garlic rubbed toast with rouille (spicy mayo) which made the dish. I did not have clam juice as some of the other reviewers noted so I added some Knorr seafood base. This was truly excellent, I really loved it. I know I did not really make the recipe as noted, but thought it made an excellent base to do with whatever you like, and I am sure it would also be excellent as written. Thanks!

Asparagus with Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
This recipe was great. Easy, healthy and delicious. I used cherry tomatoes and added a splash of white balsamic vinegar. YUM. My mother in law makes the same thing with green beans, also very good. I will make this again soon! Thanks.

Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I made Shepherd's pie for my husband and 16 month old for the first time tonight using this recipe...they both loved it! I thought it was good too. I omitted the tomato and red pepper, because I did not have on hand, and added some precooked ground pork sausage. I put in the full amount of curry and thought it really added something to the dish. This was fairly easy, and very tasty. My husband had seconds and asked me to make it with double the meat next time (?) Not sure I will do that but at least he wants to have it again :-) Thanks for a great recipe!

Bouillabaisse

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I made this exactly as stated, except that I used mahi mahi, sea bass, mussels, shrimp & scallops for the fish. The broth was so bland and watery! I was really disappointed. I ended up adding a bunch more seasoning, and some Pernod (traditional liqueur for bouillabaisse). After the additions, it was better but still not great. If it weren't for the fact that I'd made some toast rubbed with garlic and spread with rouille to eat with the soup, it would have been a total loss. It may taste better tomorrow, but who wants a fish soup that needs 24 hours for the flavour to develop? When you are going to spend a lot of money on expensive fish you want to eat it when it is fresh. Also it made a LOT. My husband ate a few spoonfuls and then said..."Honey, I know you worked hard on this recipe but it's just not good." So not worth the effort. Sorry...I really wanted to love it.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I have made this soup twice, mostly because my 14 month old loved it. I did not add the cream at the end, only a little milk to thin it. Do not skimp on the curry powder, as odd as it sounds it really does complement the soup in the most unexpected (but delicious) way. Otherwise I made the soup exactly as described. A really thick, stick to your ribs soup (more like a stew, really), perfect on a cold winter's night. Thanks!

Bill's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
This is the one! I have tried many of the blue cheese dressings/dips on this site and this one is by far the best. I too added more sour cream than mayo (personal preference) and two cloves of fresh garlic and dijon mustard instead of powdered. I have served this dip at my last two parties to absolute raves. It's fabulous! Thanks Bill!

Cocktail Meatballs IV

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I was pretty skeptical about this recipe, I mean grape jelly and chili sauce? It sounds like an unlikely combo. But I was having 60 people for my son's first birthday and needed something easy that I could make in advance so I tried it. I used frozen cocktail meatballs (3 lb bag). They were gone after about 10 minutes, and everyone was asking for more (in spite of there being plenty of everything else on the table) They were FANTASTIC. I wish I'd made twice as many. The only changes I made were to use a whole jar of each grape jelly and chili sauce, a tablespoon or so of dijon and about the same of worcester sauce. I dumped everything in the crockpot and left in on low for about 4 hours. AMAZING. Easy and a huge crowd pleaser! I will make again for New Year's! Thanks for the great recipe!

False Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
I thought this was quite good. I did not add the sour cream, just had that as a garnish. I cooked some long grain white rice and added it to the pot. Tastes like a cabbage roll without the hassle of making them. This recipe makes a LOT. If you are a family of two, you'll be eating it for days. It is good though, so you might not mind!

Holiday Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This was awesome. I made it for Thanksgiving instead of our usual cranberry jelly, and everyone went crazy for it. Leftovers were really good on turkey sandwiches or with cream cheese on crackers. I am definitely making again for Christmas! Super easy, really yummy, you won't be disappointed.

Millie Pasquinelli's Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
I too tried brining the chicken in salt water for about an hour before cooking. The chicken was tender and moist after cooking, and not salty at all. I added a lot of spices to the flour (oregano, poultry seasoning, old bay, paprika, basil, etc) to liven it up. Unfortunately I didn't add any salt because I read the other reviewers who said their turned out too salty and I was concerned that would be the case with mine as well. It did need the salt added, so I will do that next time. Chicken was very crispy, my husband loved it. Easy recipe for someone who's never fried a chicken before!

Artichoke and Black Olive Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
I liked this recipe, my hubby hated it. I changed it the following ways: 4 bone in skinless breasts, lots of herbs (rosemary, thyme, italian seasonings) and garlic. I also added a chopped tomato and a little more broth and wine. Chicken was cooked in an hour and not dried out at all. In fact the reason my hubby didn't care for this is that he thought the chicken tasted poached. I thought it was a good, flavourful dish and would make again if I were single ;-) I added cornstarch to the sauce and thickened it up and served over rice. An easy, healthy meal if you like the olive and artichoke flavours. I also thought listed fat and calories seemed very high, considering there were no added fats or oils. I know olives and artichokes have fat but 41 g per serving??
