This is just another variation of Cretons, which is a pretty basic recipe. I have an old French Canadian recipe, which is probably about 50 years old at least. Can't get the ingredients it calls for! I would not use milk, as it can burn. Or use 1/2 milk 1/2 water to reduce the risk if you feel the need to use milk. You do not need to constantly stir it, but make sure you cover it and cook over very low heat for about 2 hrs or until most of the liquid has been reduced. And stir once in awhile. Spice is according to taste. You can add more as it cooks or even after it's cooked. My mother used to mix in a bit of mayo to it prior to serving with thin slices of baguette for an appie. Made great sandwiches for the long drive back home. Very similar mixture/spices as Tourtiere (minus the potato!)Oh, and it freezes really well!

Excellent! So easy and very tastey. Made it just as the recipe says. I might add capers next time.

Chicken with Quinoa and Veggies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Overall very good, but found it very salty. Next time I will try 1/2 broth 1/2 water to cut down on the saltiness - or maybe just all water.

Balsamic Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
I did this exact to recipe, except I subbed the blue cheese with feta. I found it to be very bland. Needs work, but then it wouldn't be this recipe.

Mediterranean Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Made this according to recipe and woulld not make it that way again. It is a good basic recipe needing many adjustments to make it a great dish.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2010
This was very good and very easy. Followed the recipe except for a couple of changes. I don't like roasted broccoli or cauliflower so I boiled it like I normally do, but not quite as much. I like it quite crunchy! Did the onions and garlic at the same time (as I always do). Tossed it all together with some caynne pepper and topped it with just a thin coating of old cheddar cheese and then some whole wheat breadcrumbs, dotted w/butter! Will definitely make this again. It would be great as a pot luck dish or served with ham!
