Beer Braised Irish Stew and Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
Delicious! I think next time I will add more carrots and onions to it and maybe even throw in some turnip. I might add some beef stock to it next time as well so there is a little more gravy. I used more garlic than it called for and a little less worcestershire sauce so it was more to our tastes. I didn't microwave the cabbage because there is really no need. I just put it in with the potatoes for the last 5 or 10 minutes and strained it all together. It was fabulous! Definitely one of our faves!

Streusel Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
This coffee cake is very good. It is very moist. This is the first coffee cake that I've had with sour cream in it and it definitely gives it a different flavour than what I am traditionally used to. This recipe is a definite keeper.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I'm still giving these 5 stars even though I altered it slightly because I think they still would have been fabulous! Instead of 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of butter flavored shortening, I used all butter. I also added more raisins because that's how we like them. 10 minutes was absolutely perfect for these in my oven. My whole family and I agree that these are probably the best oatmeal raisin cookies that we have ever had. Thanks for the recipe!

Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
I am only giving this recipe a 2 because the flavor was great...if it wasn't for that it would be a 1 star. The time and heat is WAY off. Most scalloped potato recipes have the temp at 400 or 425 so I should have known that something wasn't right with a temp of 325. After almost 2 hours they were STILL not cooked all the way through and I followed this recipe to the letter. The only thing I can think of is that maybe it would cook all the way through at that temp in a convection oven?? I don't know. I will definitely have to adjust the temp next time.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
I made this bread to the letter of the recipe and it came out wonderful! I do recommend that you watch it closely after the 30 minute mark as it really depends on your oven. Mine only took 40 minutes. My husband has yet to stop raving about it ^_^

Grandma's Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
This corn chowder is pretty great with a few very minor changes. Definitely substitute chicken stock for the water. I also used 2 cans of cream corn and 1 can regular corn otherwise I find it too sweet. I did find that I had to thicken it at the end because it was thinner than I like for chowder (good consistency for a basic cream soup however). At the end I put in a little bit of nutmeg as per a previous reviewer's suggestion and it was perfect with it. It wasn't really noticeable but it was enough to make you say "Mmmm what is that?". After cooking it, I left the bacon out until the end and sprinkled it on top in order to keep some of the crunchy texture. It tasted even better the second day. Overall, this was a fabulous recipe and I will be making it often! Thank you for the lovely recipe. It reminds me of when I was a child.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
This frosting was very yummy and indeed came out light and fluffy as promised. It had a great peanut butter flavor. I would've given it 5 stars but I found it to be a tad bit too sweet. I think next time I will add just a bit less sugar and that should fix it up. This frosting was very easy to spread. For those of you who are having trouble getting it to be spreadable, you really need to make sure that everything is room temperature and that it is well combined. Also, make sure that you are adding the sugar a little at a time. You may not be adding enough milk. Remember, the recipe says 3 tbsp or AS NEEDED. Mine indeed take more than 3 tbsp. If it is not light and fluffy then you need to mix it longer. This recipe was great to do in the KitchenAid. Thanks for the recipe. It will be going into my recipe box for sure.

Cocoa Banana Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
Made this recipe exactly as is and it was delicous. It really is more of a cake than a bar though so if you are looking for something more dense, this is not the recipe for you. I topped it off with "Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting" from here and it was so yummy! My hubby can't get enough :D Just wanted to add that it is very moist. Three days later and it is just as moist as the night I made them! If you are finding this recipe is turning out dry for you then you are not measuring out your mashed banana. I used 4 medium sized bananas and it came out perfect. I think I'm going to make these as cupcakes next time. They should do very well that way. :)

Jagerschnitzel

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
YUM! I made lots so that there would be extras and there ended up not being any. This was soooo good. Definitely comfort food. My hubby was born in Germany and lived there for quite a few years and this meets his approval. He loved it! I did make a couple of changes. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned because I had some in the fridge and I used beef stock instead of a bouillon cube because I had some in the pantry. My hubby says that I have to put this in our regular rotation :)

Chicken Alfredo with Plum Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
This was fantastic! Like many others, I chose this recipe because it was simple and didn't take long to make. My husband and I both loved it. This will be going into regular rotation. I did change a few things. I used Classico roasted garlic alfredo sauce because that is what I had on hand. Also, I used 1/2 a tsp or so (just a guess because I didn't measure) of dried basil since I didn't have any fresh. We served it with rice and topped it all off with a little freshly shredded parmesan. The chicken came out perfect. Thinking about adding some mushrooms to it next time. I can't wait to make it again! Yummy! FYI: For those of you who don't know, roma tomatoes ARE plum tomatoes. They are just one type of plum tomato. Just thought I would put this out there as I saw many people mentioning in their reviews that they could only find roma, not plum, tomatoes at the grocery store/market. Hope that helps!

Homestyle Beef Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
This a good basic beef stew recipe that is easily adapted to suit your family's taste. Loved the thyme seasoning in the stew. We've changed it up a bit to suit our family a little better (garlic, onion, etc.) but this is something that we'll be having often.

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
Very simple, yet delicious way to do up zuchini. This is also very good with other veggies. I added some garlic to it and cooked it in garlic and ginger wok oil because that was what I had on hand. Whole family loved it. I'm pretty sure that this will be in regular rotation. :)
