Bookbinder's Fabulous Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2006
Excellent!! Fresh strawberries were not very nice at all so I just skipped them and did the apricot glaze. It was absolutely gorgeous. I baked it in a bain marie (water bath) and I think I'll skip that next time, as the center wasn't quite set enough and when it was cut it was a bit messy to serve. This will be my standard recipe from now on though..it was terrific.

Beef Florentine

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2003
This was good...a quick lasagne meal. I accidentally bought Italian stewed tomatoes when I thought I was buying Italian tomato sauce, but we both enjoyed this. I noticed that it didn't say what to do with the garlic, so I chopped it up and put it in with the hamburger. I also shredded a big carrot, and a small zuchini and some celery and saute'd that with the meat. I'll make this again for sure!

Greek Pasta Salad with Roasted Vegetables and Feta

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
REALLY enjoyed this! I used spinach instead of arugula (because I couldn't find arugula!) and we totally enjoyed it. I doubled the dressing and kept half of it on the side. This is the first recipe involving eggplant that I've ever liked, and I've made it a few times now for ourselves, and I look forward to sharing it with friends.

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2003
This is the dressing recipe I've been searching forever for! I also cut the mustard (heh heh) in half, but will add a touch more next time, just to see how that goes. I served mine over ramen noodles, and added thinly sliced nappa/chinese cabbage to it. I doubled the dressing recipe, drizzled it over the noodles, then the salad..layered them in single serving bowls, then kept the rest of the dressing on the side. This is a really terrific salad on a hot day!

Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: May 23, 2003
Loved this! I used jalapeno jelly and dijon mustard because that's what I had in the fridge and it was a terrific combination. I also broiled them for a few minutes, and that gave them a nice colour and a nice crunch. We just finished eating, and I'm wanting to do this again tomorrow..heh heh...

Garlic and Olive Oil

Reviewed: May 23, 2003
This recipe reminded me that making my own dressing is not rocket science, and it spurred me on to do more of my own. A nice little starter recipe.

Kona Chicken

Reviewed: May 23, 2003
This was very very good! I did it in a caserolle dish for two hours at 300 F and it was delicious. I'll be using the slow cooker method next time and I'm sure that'll be great.

Baking Powder Biscuits I

Reviewed: May 13, 2003
This was fast, easy, and excellent! I added some cheese and garlic powder, and I have lots of other things I'm going to try in them too. Next time I would use the spoon to gently give them a more biscuity shape, but no biggie.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2003
This was good...although mine turned out more like a 'square' than a cake in terms of how thin and flat it was. I went out and bought new baking powder in case that was the problem, or maybe this is how it is supposed to look. Easy, quick, and good though!

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2003
Really good...and super easy. This was the first time I've ever made dumplings, and I followed it exactly....PERFECT! Light and fluffy. My only problem was that some of the stew cooked to the bottom of the pot, so I think I didn't turn it down enough after it boiled for the dumplings. Do NOT think you can use a sprinkle of celery salt instead of the seed...even with the reduced sodium broth, I did think mine turned out a bit salty, but that's my fault. Next time I'll be cutting a little dill or rosemary into the dumplings...and I'll definitely be using that dumpling mix for beef stews as well...it's a keeper!

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2003
We really enjoyed this! It was fun and easy to make. I'll be embellishing it a bit when I make it next though(adding some garlic, oregano, maybe some shredded carrots); I used hot italian sausage, and wasn't sure how spicy it was going to be so the only extra thing I added to this was parmesan sprinkled on top when it was done. I'll be using that tomato sauce mixture for other things, so that was great to learn as well.

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2003
We really enjoyed these. I put some water in the pan before I baked them and that worked out well. I'll be serving this to guests soon and I'll open another can of sauce (I used italian flavoured sauce) and heat it up to drizzle over the top before serving, and maybe sprinkle it with parmesan and parsley. That should look and taste excellent! Great recipe to springboard from.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
This is the first time I've had green bean casserole, and I'm sorry to say it wasn't really to our taste, although I can see why it would be appealing. I don't think it was the recipe itself, I think it's just that we prefer fresh green beans served au natural as opposed to canned ones in a creamy sauce. Oh well...you don't know unless you try it! :-)

Vegetable Feta Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
We really really enjoyed this. The heat from the rice brings out the flavours of the feta(I used garlic-herb flavoured feta) very nicely and the crunch from the veggies is a nice surprise. I diced my veggies fairly small, and I only used half an onion. I agree that a whole cup would have been too overpowering. This was great cold the next day for lunch with some cold leftover chicken chopped into it. It's always great when you try something and it turns out to be better than you were expecting! :-)

Italian Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2002
I was so impressed at how these turned out. They looked exactly like biscotti that you get in fancy coffee shops, and since I had never made them before, I was really pleased. This makes a big batch - 2 friends and I had a bake-fest before Christmas and we all got quite a good share out of it. I'll do this one again for sure.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2002
These were a nice change from regular chocolate chip cookies. If you substitute 1/4 cup cocoa powder for 1/4 cup of the flour, you end up with a dark chocolate cookie with the red and white of the berries and chocolate showing. Really yummy!

Melt-in-your Mouth Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2002
I made a boo-boo and refrigerated the dough overnight! The rolls wouldn't cut nicely, they just crumbled, so I ended up rolling it into little balls and baking it like that, instead of flattening it out and cutting. Worked just fine!

Apricot-Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2002
Really great, and a nice change from the usual chocolatey stuff I always end up making at Christmastime. I'll be doing these again! I used chopped up raw almonds, and I left them fairly chunky, and we loved it.

Brown Sugar Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2002
Not bad at all, but I didn't have time to read all the reviews first though. If I had, I would have marinated the chops for a while as a lot of people recommended. I baked mine in a foil-lined baking dish, so cleanup was easy. I ended up with a fair amount of liquid in the dish (some of it fat, of course) but I didn't really see it as 'sauce' like people have described, so we didn't use it.
