Deluxe Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: May 2, 2002
-changed the soup from mushroom to cream of chicken-added some tarragon, chopped garlic. Used less sour cream and added a little milk instead to reduce the fat content- family liked it very much- served it over noodles..

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2002
I made this stuffing for our thanksgiving dinner..(canadian)..I always use sausage in my stuffing, but the addition of the dried cranberries and apple gave it a wonderful flavour..I still had fresh thyme growing in the garden and used that..I think it made a difference..not your boring dressing any longer..this was great!

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2002
I used stewing beef for this recipe which i had soaked in about a 1/4 cup of red wine first..i used beef broth instead of the bouillon and a little less sour cream, i had fresh mushrooms on hand as well as canned..the fresh mushrooms are the way to go ..big difference...it turned out very well..with the cheaper stewing beef coming out very tender!! will make again..

Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: May 29, 2003
nice recipe..just thought that it was alot of wine..hate to use a $15 bottle of Merlot on three lamb shanks(which was 3 lbs actually).so I used probably 1 cup. turned out fine. a lot of 'gravy' left. I will take the advice of one other reviewer and freeze it for later use..such as a lamb stew.

Very Easy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2003
the only thing I didn't like about this receipe was the texture of the peaches in the pie filling.they were quite mushy and not very attractive. Maybe just a glaze mixture would do the trick or just pick out all the mushy peaches in the can??..

Momma Lamb's Famous Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2003
After draining the pineapple there was only about a 1 cup of juice to add to the pudding mix..thought that might make the sauce too sweet as the pudding mix does take 2 cups of milk..so I added about 3/4 cup of milk as well, and I'm glad I did. the taste was just fine! I used what fruit I had on hand..cantaloupe, fresh raspberries and bananas..(put lemon juice on the bananas to keep them from going brown)

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2003
we love all the ingredients in this recipe..I made it exactly as posted..however I did not find this as exciting as I thought it would be..I used fresh mushrooms and good balsamic vinegar?.. maybe I'm too picky? but don't think I'll make this again

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
