Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2003
Very good and tasty. Instead of forming them into individual loaves as suggested in the recipe, I used a muffin pan that I sprayed with PAM. The cooking time was the same and it was easier, too.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2002
Delicious! Easy to make! Wonderful~ I followed the advice of others: 1. Make pasta separately (Acini de Pepe instead of orzo) 2. Baked the meatballs at 350 for 25 minutes 3. Used frozen spinach (I had some on hand) I also added some celery as well as some onion, garlic and zucchini that I had sauteed in olive oil. (also other people's suggestions) It was a nice touch but I think I will skip it next time and stick with the original recipe.

Potato Leek Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2002
What a lovely, mellow, creamy, delicious soup! I cut the recipe in half and it was very easy to make. I used a hand mixer to puree the potatoes, and added the cooked leeks to the original pot of potatoes. Other than that, I followed the directions to the letter. It doesn't need anything added! Perfect cold weather soup.

Hearty Lentil Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2002
It was very good and plentiful. I certainly ended up with more than 2-3 servings. Also, the lentils absorbed a lot of the liquid, making it more of a stew than a soup. Next time, I will use only 1/2 cup of lentils to see if that will make it more like soup. All in all, a good, cheap and hearty recipe. Definitely a keeper!

Grilled Chicken with Fresh Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2003
Unusual yet tasty. We really like ginger, so I used a lot of it, which gave it a lot of zing. Complemented the barbecued chicken very well.

Bacon Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2002
Delicious and very easy to make. It cooked in the time specified and came out very fluffy. It also reheated very well. I plan to try other meats and cheeses in this. I used pancake mix like others suggested and it did the trick.

Roasted Asparagus and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2002
This recipe was just okay. There was nothing special about it. It seems to me that it would taste better with dill instead of thyme. I won't use this recipe again.

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2002
Quite delicious. Normally, we don't like blue cheese but its tang was just right in this very easy salad. We don't have a grill so I just cooked the steak on the stovetop. Perfect!

Baked Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2002
If you are looking for a good pumpkin bread recipe, this is *not* it. There was no pumpkin taste at all (and I followed the advice of others and added more pumpkin). However, if you are looking for a good spice cake recipe (flavourfull, moist, dense, filling), you will not be disappointed. I wasn't looking for spice cake so I was disappointed with the results.

Green Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2002
Really easy and delicious. I used the base of this recipe and used chicken instead of tofu (husband doesn't like tofu). I added broccoli and peas. We *love* spicy dishes so we really enjoyed the 2 tbsp of green curry paste. I plan to look for even more green vegetables and will make this again and again.

Stuffed Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2003
It was "okay". The texture was nice. It didn't have enough crab flavour for my liking and they weren't pretty to look at.

Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Great. I didn't have papaya so I doubled the strawberries. I used 1/3 cup orange juice and 1/3 cup water instead of ice. Will use frozen fruit next time so that it is a little colder. But it was delicious and very easy.

Swiss Cheese Scramble

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2002
Very tasty. Takes longer to prepare than indicated in the recipe, though. For instance, I grated the cheese instead of buying it pre-grated. Also, I don't have a pan that can cook a pound of bacon all at once so cooking it in batches makes for a longer preparation time.

BLT Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2002
A delicious, fast and filling recipe for hot summer evenings when you don't want to cook a lot. Making your own "croutons" makes the difference.

Chocolate-Cherry-Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
This was fantastic. I altered it slightly because I wanted no dairy or soy. I halved the recipe: 1 frozen banana, 1 cup frozen cherries, 1 cup plain Almond Breeze almond milk, 2 tsp cocoa powder. It was delicious.

Bacon and Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2003
Fantastic! What great comfort food! I didn't have Miracle Whip so I substituted the same amount of margarine and I used 1% milk and we loved the taste. I served it with ribs made in the slow cooker. It was a great meal for a VERY cold winter's night.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2002
My husband and I love this recipe. Instead of cutting the onion into quarters, I diced it and also added a clove of minced garlic into the "stuffing". After the chicken was cooked, I tossed the onion, garlic, rosemary mixture with some rice and it was delicious as a side dish! The chicken stays unbelievably moist and the carcass makes a fantastic stock! This is going to be a regular dish.

Egg and Hash Brown Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2003
I didn't have enough hash browns so I used one cup chopped yukon gold potatoes with 2 cups frozen hash browns (which I kept frozen). That worked surprisingly well. I also didn't have green onions so I used chives. Like other reviewers, I also think that this needs something else ... maybe red bell pepper. It reheats nicely so I was able to have a quick breakfast the next morning, too.

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2003
Tasty and easy to prepare. The cabbage gives the salad a nice crunch and the feta has the right amount of sharpness. All in all, a very satisfying and light salad that went perfect with our barbecue.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2002
A very easy and tasty dip. I think it's too thick to be a salad dressing if you use sour cream and mayo. The buttermilk would make it a good dressing, I imagine.
