Rum Flavored Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2005
This did not turn out for me at all. I cut the recipe to 12, maybe that was it? the consistency was course and way too sweet. I used very fine sugar (berry sugar). Maybe should have used icing sugar instead..I also found it runny.

Red Chard and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2005
this was good, only a little too salty.. the combination of the olives and the sea salt and the 2 TB of capers made it so.. next time I will either reduce the sea salt or the amount of capers..thanks for a quick and easy way to use up the last of the garden's swiss chard.

Chicken with Grape Tomatoes and Fried Basil

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2005
We love the flavour of fresh basil, but did not care for the flavour of the fried basil..it almost had a 'hay' taste to it?? Will make this again, but will not fry the basil, but will add at the end! Also felt like there was way too much broth.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2005
These came out very tender. Did not flour the chops, but that didn't seem to matter as to the outcome. Usually I'm not a 'canned soup recipe' person, as it always seems to taste like soup 'gravy'.I added different seasoning to the chops and bread crumbs..I think you could experiment with that. It was a relatively quick recipe though.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
I found this quite good, unfortunately the lamb was not so tender. The balsmic reduction was great. Did not have chicken broth so had to use beef broth and added about a 1/4 cup of red wine..turned out very good. -did also add chopped parsley at the end for colour as someone else suggested and about 3 tb of butter. Worked well over wild and brown rice. Will make again-thanks for the recipe!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
Sorry to say we found this to be rather bland. I did make this in the crock pot- don't know if that made the difference? Used all the ingredients listed. After tasting it I added worchestire and garlic - made it a little better. As it sits - will not make this again.

Spicy Indian Chicken Curry Yummy

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2004
I have made this twice now. First with chicken thighs and again with chicken breasts. The thighs are much more tender and produces more juices, thus making for a more abundant sauce. I did reduce the amount of red pepper by half as well as the black pepper. I also crushed the spices and broke the cinnamon stick in half only. The flavour was great. A bit of work but worth the time! This definitely beats the jarred curry mixes etc.

Rosemary Marinated Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2004
This is one of the better lamb marinades I've tried. I have used it twice now. However both times I've had rather tough cuts of lamb :-( but the flavour of the marinade is great! and made up for the toughness.

Amby Rae's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2004
well it's hard to know how to rate this. If you make this as is I don't think it would be perfect. However it has good 'bones'.It has a taste similiar to tzatziki, but instead of the dill weed, this uses mint. the ingredients work- just not the proportions. I made this using 1 english cuc, less than a 1/2 cup of sour cream, about 2 Tbs of olive oil, 4cloves of garlic, 1/2 fresh lemon, salt and fresh pepper and the most important thing I think is the fresh Mint! My 21 year old had this the next day..and said "hey mom that salad was really good" Sooo I guess it keeps well too. Very Greek in flavour--I loved it. Sorry I can only give it 3 stars as it sits.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: May 1, 2004
Enjoyed this recipe very much. I did add toasted sesame seeds and that added a wonderful favour.Not quite like the sunomo salad in a Japanese restaurant..next time I may add a few cooked,cold shrimp and rice noodles for fun.

Lobster Tails Steamed in Beer

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
Thanks kathleen for a quick and delicious recipe!Steaming with beer turned out to be the way to go for very moist and favourable lobster tails. With the price of lobster tails you don't want them dried out in the oven or overcooked on the barbque. Great with a hot dip of butter,lemon and garlic powder..badaboom,badabing..will make again.
