Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
Made this to get rid of a huge bag of coconut I had in my pantry. Great recipe. I added sugar to the batter but won't do that again - it made the batter change and become more brittle. Keep the sweet on the side.

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
I can't get over how good this tastes. I live in Halifax and could not find a yam to save my life, used sweet potatoes instead. It was still good. Only thing I changed was adding more vanilla.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2006
This does not taste authentic. That said, who cares? It tastes great. Add extra garlic and fresh chopped ginger, stir in a few peanuts and fresh green onions at the end.

BLT Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
This is an awesome tasting recipe but the fat content is terrible. Use Hellman's low fat mayo (1/2 cup instead of 3/4) and mix in some low fat sour cream and a bit more milk (adjust to desired thickness) as well for a fresher, healthier taste. Use less bacon and substitute chicken breast.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
I did not care for the flavor or consistency at all. It tasted like a box mix, and it was too thick. Almost had a grainy flavor. Not the airy, fluffy buttery flavor of a pancake I am used to. If you must use this recipe, I recommend you cut back on the baking powder and salt, and use more milk and sugar. Blueberries did help to improve the flavor - but why settle? Much better recipes out there.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: May 23, 2006
This recipe is just as delicious and won't leave you guilt ridden if you omit the bacon and cream, only add 3 TBS of butter and 2 TBS olive oil, and use chicken broth and a bit of cornstarch to thicken. I add basil and parmesan for extra flavor.

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Really good but I prefer the bacon on top after is had been crisped. Add garlic too!

Shish Tawook Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
This is a great recipe except I would not add cinnamon or allspice again. It overpowers the flavors and I just do not care for cinnamon in a meat dish. I did add lemon juice.

French Onion Soup VIII

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Really good the only thing I would change is adding garlic and using a combination of cheeses - I use parmesan, provolone and swiss.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
Wonderful flavor but because of the high sugar content the glaze burned a bit too much for my taste. Next time I will bake it at 300 covered with foil, then take the foil off at the end. I did not have curry so made my own with plenty of paprika, garlic, pepper, tumeric and cumin. Serve with rice and a salad with a lemon oil dressing - the fresh tart flavor went so well with the carmel sweet spice.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
Glad I tried this. I always bought enchilada packets before - never knew how easy it was! I only used 3/4 cup water, a bit more onion, chili powder and cumin, and added some diced chiles. Really really good!

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2006
A good base recipe. I added crushed garlic, chopped baby spinach and plenty of salt and pepper to the cheese mixture (used ricotta instead of cottage). I had leftover spaghetti sauce and used that - it was chunky with plenty of meat, mushrooms, basil, celery red pepper etc and really added zip. I wouldnt use a plain sauce with this. Topped with plenty of mozzarella cheese. I had no problem spooning the mixture into the shells but I took them out while they were quite firm and let them finish cooking in the oven.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
This made a very tasty ham but I like a bit more than sweet taste so added garlic powder and 1 TBS Dijon to the glaze. Also I used brown sugar instead of Corn Syrup as others have suggested. My Mother In Law taught me to add about a half bottle of 7up to the pan as well - it seems to draw the salt out and keep the ham moist and tender. Also helps to prevent a huge sticky pan mess from the glaze.

Divine Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
Very good. I grate 1 zucchini and toss in some spinach and maybe even diced carrot as well - basically any veggie in the fridge. I do not however add 2 cans tomato paste. Yuck! 1/2 of a small one was plenty. 1/2 cup red wine is a must! And if you dont want to crush tomatoes - just buy a jar of quality herbed sauce.

Grill Dough

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
This is so good! I add garlic powder and rosemary to the dough then brush with garlic butter and top with mozzarella. As others said, grill one side until cooked, then flip and add toppings.

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
I used much less butter, and added crushed fresh garlic into the mayo mixture, added plenty of pepper. Steamed for only 10 minutes then put the mayo mixture on, then topped it with 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese and broiled it until the cheese was brown and bubbly. I have used American cheese slices as well. SO GOOD. If you add the cheese you dont really need the butter.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2006
This recipe is very similar to what I make - I add onion and garlic powder, ketchup and mustard into the meat mixture, add more oats and 2 cups chopped baby spinach. Also 1 tsp worcestire sauce. I put it in a muffin pan and glaze it with the sauce (adding garlic pwder to the sauce too). For a great kids treat, dont glaze but instead top the "meatloaf muffins" with "mashed potato" frosting. Serve glaze on side. Great fun.

Garlic Chicken with Orzo Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
This is a lovely alternative to rice. For those of you who say it is too bland, here is what I do: use a deep skillet and sautee the garlic then add the orzo and chicken broth instead of water. Sautee the chicken separately with garlic and serve it on top.

North Carolina-Style Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Second time making this. I too rubbed hickory smoke all over the roast, then put the rub on the roast (I added seasoning salt and some poultry seasoning to the other ingredients) and cooked it at 325 in my oven all day. Served it on big smooshy buns with sides of baked beans, cole slaw and corn, and it felt like a 4th of July picnic! PS As for the sauce you really do have to cut the vinegar down by half, and I added more brown sugar as well. I tossed the pork in this, and then served at the table Bulls Eye BBQ sauce that I doctored up with garlic, honey and mustard.
