Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I am in my 60's. My Mom used to make this sort of pudding for us all the time . Brings back memories of warm, happy kitchens and families all eating together around the table at every meal. No need to buy pudding mixes with all their artificial ingredients. By using brown sugar instead of white and by deleting the cocoa, you get butterscotch pudding. By the same token, if you scorch white sugar, you get caramel pudding. Personnally, I used to love the skin on top of the puddings. Mom would pour the hot puddings into desert bowls to cool, and each of us got our own serving of skin covered pudding.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2015
I made this yesterday. Marinated it for 8 hours. I had a huge strip loin I cut in three as there are only two of us. Froze two pieces for later. Took about an hour over indirect heat on the barbeque, probably because of the size. Made gravy with the rest of the marinade. The pork was SUBPERB !!!! My husband loved it and the gravy. I loved the pork, but not the gravy. Just my peculiar tastes. The meat was moist and full of flavour. Having more tonight. Last night served with a salad and baked potatoes. Tonight with baked rice pilaf and a salad. Yum. Am keeping the recipe and expect to use it a lot.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Have made this 3 times now. Once to take to a pot luck. I love it. My sister took it to her restaurant and sold out. Have made it as is and also with a few changes. Great both ways. Not a lot of difference using chicken broth instead pf water. I used walnuts second time as ran out of almonds. I like the walnuts more than almonds. Cut out the canberries when serving to my niece wha has a big yeast poblem and is on a no nonsence diet. Quinoa is one of the few things she can eat. Love the recipe. Thanks. Am looking for more recipes using grains I have never used before to expand my healthy horizons.

Butter Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
Been doing basically this forever. Learnt from my Mom who had a tight budget and little time. If boiling potatoes the first night, she cooked extra. Next night cubed and fried them with onion, garlic and Thyme. As they were already cooked, they needed less butter. We fried them till potatoes were golden, then added bread crumbs to soak up extra butter. Cooked till we scraped the pan . Optional sprinkle of paprika or cayenne for colour. Great.

Canadian Yellow Split Pea Soup with Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2014
should be very good. Is similar to the old stand by from my long dead grandmother. I usually add some garlic, bay leaf, and a bit of oregano. sometimes a cube of chicken bouillon. If you sauté the onions and other veg before adding the peas, you can reduce the time by using a pressure cooker for 15 minutes after bringing pot up to 15 pounds of pressure (high) for twelve minutes, and allow pressure to reduce slowly. If the peas are old, you ay need to put pot back on and cook a little longer, but as pot is hot, it wont take long to return to pressure. All in all, however you make it, nothing beats split pea soup on a cold Canadian winter's day. tomorrow I hear, should reach a high of minus 27 C. soup will be on the stove or in the pressure cooker to save electricity.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
I have a 6 quart slow cooker, so decided to try this cake. Husband does not like chocolate cake, but he liked this. Very Chocolately. However after 5 hours, lid never lifted, cake was still fudgey rather than cake like. Doubt I will make it again.
