Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Found this recipe by searching for new ways to prepare that most delectable cut of pork and we absolutely loved it. It was so tender and full of flavour. Thanks for sharing.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Easy and spectacular! I made this for my nephew's birthday and everyone raved about it. I used chocolate wafers for the crumb layer and around the outside, Chocolate Crunch ice cream for the bottom layer, and vanilla for the scoops. I put a blob of Strawberry Lavender jam on top of each scoop, then drizzled with hot fudge topping. I didn't add any whipped cream. It was gone before it had a chance to melt. This was such a fun dessert to make, and it looked very special. Thanks for the great recipe!

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
We live in Ontario and wondered what the heck a hush puppy was. We had it on good authority (friends from Tennessee) that they're pretty tasty, so we had to give these a try. Now I know what we've been missing. They taste like little deep-fried corn muffins with onion in them. I didn't have the self-rising ingredients, so I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of salt as suggested in other reviews. I added 1/2 cup of frozen corn kernels that had been chopped fairly small, and the moisture that was created as they thawed added enough moisture to the batter that I didn't need to add any milk as suggested by other reviewers. They were absolutely delicious. I think they would taste great alongside a bowl of chili. Thanks for the great recipe.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I haven't tried the recipe yet, but after browsing the photos and seeing all of the creations it has inspired, it has to be good. All of the decorations are spectacular. What a fun recipe.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This is a foolproof and perfect recipe for peanut brittle. The first batch was intended for the Christmas treat tray but it didn't make it because we ate it all. Had to buy more peanuts and start over. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This is one of those recipes that you make and then you wonder why you pay good money to eat in a restaurant. What a yummy sandwich!

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
While I wrapped each little spear with half a slice of bacon and then closed with the toothpicks, I thought it was a wee bit fiddly. My favourite griller thought it was a wee bit fiddly because he had to pick up and turn each little spear instead of rolling them around because of the toothpicks. "Let's see what they taste like first, and then we'll decide if they're worth it", we said. One bite was all it took, and it was unanimous - they're definitely worth it!! I brushed them with olive oil before wrapping with bacon, and sprinkled with fresh ground black pepper. That's all you need! Great yummy recipe!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
I fully agree with the reviews that call this recipe outstanding. It was not the least bit dry, and the flavour of the sauce permeated throughout the chicken so that it was not necessary to dip in extra sauce. The honey mustard itself is the best. How lucky was I that I had Miel de romarin (rosemary honey) from France, and dijon mustard flavoured with chardonnay. It was over the top. This recipe is one of our new favourites.

Cherry Bomb Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
No need to repeat what's already been said. An excellent recipe for moist and delicious chicken. It was actually quite simple to make.

Bellyful of Barbecued Bananas

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
Whoa, Charlie! This is goood. We put the bananas in foil like other reviewers did, and the sauce left behind was thick and delicious. We added 1 tbsp of spiced rum to the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Can't believe how easy this was.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
Divine! I chopped everything very fine and put it in the saucepan without water as suggested by others. I didn't blend it afterwards and it was great. I had heard of tomatillos but never saw them until a visit to our local farmers market last week. I only got enough to make half this recipe and it went pretty quick. Also added the juice of half a lime. I ate it all with tortilla scoops with a dab of sour cream. Scrumptious recipe!

Keon's Slow Cooker Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
Good stuff, Keon! I reduced the cayenne to 1/2 tsp after reading other reviews, and it was terrific. I used boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts because I love their flavour. No other changes except for the reduced-sodium versions of the canned soup. I also thought the sauce might be a tad thin, but it mixed nicely with rice, plus it made a really good thick soup for my lunch the next day, with a nice piece of crusty bread. It was super easy and I will make it again.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
I have made this recipe so many times in the past week, I've lost count. We love it. No other recipes I've tried for iced or sweet tea have been this consistently good. I must say that 6 tea bags made it a bit strong, so I cut back to 4 and it's perfect. I think I read somewhere that Canadian tea bags are 'bolder' than American? Anyhow, I brew it in my 8 cup Pyrex measuring cup, then top it up with the 6 cups of cold water, then into a plastic pitcher in the fridge. It does not last long in our house! Thanks for the recipe!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
This is very good. Only change was cilantro instead of oregano as suggested by others. I loved the flavour of the marinade. Wouldn't it be good for grilled shrimp as well?

Pepper Jelly Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
I have made this several times and absolutely love it. I use my homemade red pepper jelly and bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (flavour preference). The glaze is so good and it's one of the easiest dinners to put together. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
I haven't had my Mum's cabbage rolls in years, but I think these are better. I've made these several times now. Each time I doubled the sauce. Last time I used a lovely tomato sauce (strained tomatoes, actually) from Italy which made them spectacular. I cut the core out of the cabbage and boiled it whole, and the leaves peel right off without ripping. I also read a review (thanks, Avon Lady Lisa) that says to trim out the thick part of the leaf which makes it easier to roll. I baked them in the oven for an hour at 350, covered with foil, as suggested in another review. I love these cabbage rolls.

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
Thank you, Ken! This really works. There's nothing worse than boiling a bunch of eggs and ending up with divot devilled eggs.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
Yum! followed the recipe as written to frost Sam's Famous Carrot Cake from this site, which I made into cupcakes. Everybody just loved them. I prefer a cream cheese frosting that is not overly sweet, and this is it.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
I made this recipe into cupcakes for my Mum's 80th birthday celebration and everyone LOVED them. The flavour was great and they were so moist. I made the recipe as written and baked the cupcakes for 30 minutes at 350, then frosted them with Cream Cheese Frosting II from this site. There are many carrot cake lovers in my family and they all commented over and over again how good this recipe is. It really is the best. Thank you, Brian!

Honey Dijon Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
We doctored up our regular brussels sprouts with this mixture and they were fantastic. I always cook my veggies in a microwave steamer, so I did that and then added the dressing. "These brussels sprouts are really good. Are there any left?" Love what the honey and dijon do to the flavour, and the dill!
