Smokey's Cat Food (Cold Salmon Spread)

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
This recipe is a keeper! Made a few modifications: used the 14 oz can of pink salmon, 1/2 a small tub of good smoked salmon cream cheese, a few drops liquid smoke, 1 tbsp horseradish, lemon juice and 3 finely chopped green onions. Also added some dried dill, a few shakes worchestershire sauce and a few shakes tabasco. Added a tiny amount of salt. The key is letting it sit in the fridge for at least a couple hours to let the flavors marry a bit. Served on Wasa rye crispbread. I will be making this for all my get-together from now on! :)

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This is a simple and authentic recipe. Definitely use cast iron or ceramic to bake. You can mix this dough using a stand mixer, combine dry ingredients first, combine wet separately, low for 2 mins to combine wet and dry into a ball, scrape sides, 30 secs on low, scrape and turn dough, 30 secs more on low. Bread took 55 mins at 350. Let cool 5 mins then remove to wire rack, covered.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
My grandma would have approved! I only had 2 bananas, so I topped it up with berry applesauce. Put tin foil on for the last 10 mins. Hubby polished off half the loaf the first night. Will be stocking up on cheap bananas next time for my freezer!

Curried Quinoa

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
Great recipe! I had cooked quinoa with peas left over from the night before..simply prepared rest of recipe as written and then added cooked quinoa at the end. Also used regular chili powder, and bumped up with more Indian spices at the beginning coz I LOVE good spicy Indian food.

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
Excellent base recipe, although I do tweak it a bit. Definitely make this a day ahead, it gives the flavors a chance to marry. Slow cookers are excellent for this recipe. Since I am such a keener, i keep rendered bacon fat on hand at all times. Instead of all the bacon called for in the recipe, I use a little bacon fat combined with olive oil. I use half the meat called for, half lamb and half nice stewing beef, then I add double the veg..brown the meat, I add leeks, garlic&celery to onions, i also add parsnips instead of sugar for a nice sweetness. Deglaze with a bit of broth... I also add Guinness instead of wine, top off with water, and a jigger of whiskey near the end of cooking for flavour..don't be afraid to make this recipe your own, and i serve with colcannon and soda bread for an authentic St. Patty's Day feast! Slainte! And this makes a great pot-pie with the leftovers..also freezes pretty well!

Homemade Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
This is an easy and delicious bread..I love that you can personalize the flavors..my husband and dad gave it rave reviews. If you have bread flour, it makes a soft nice bread!

Boneless Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
Excellent recipe..followed other comments and marinated the chicken in buttermilk with cajun seasoning, recipe also on this site. Oh and season the dredge flour with it as well. Baked chicken in oven, 400 degrees for about 35 mins. Thanks for a great recipe! :)

Cajun Style Blackened Snapper

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
My hubby and I are not familiar with N'Orleans cooking...yet.. If this is indicative of the flavours, then we need to get there asap! Spice mix I cut back some of the pepper, and half the salt..Used EVOO brushed on fillets, sprinkled light layer of spice on both sides, chilled for an hr as per another comment.. sprinkled a bit more before frying, used EVOO again in cast iron on med-high. Seared one side, flipped over, finished in a 350 oven for a bit..absolutely delicious!

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2012
Great baseline recipe.. the temperature is too high for the milk/butter.. keep to between 105 and 110 degrees, and proof yeast a bit first. Watch how your dough comes together, I didn't need all 4.5 cups.. used half WW and half AP. Used a 370ml can condensed milk with 1/3 cup melted butter, and topped off the difference with water, didn't have an egg.. still turned out pretty darn good! Took a LONG time to rise, but that was prolly the weather. Brushed with butter when they came out. Will use this recipe regularly!

Egg-free Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This was a pleasant surprise! Looks like a lot of steps but it's well worth the effort. We used the advice for less baking powder (only 1.5 tsps) and a little more flour up to a cup. Nice to know we can have a brownie if we're out of eggs from now on!

Swedish Rye Bread

Very nice recipe! I baked this dough using dark rye flour, in two round loaves on a well-heated pizza stone in our oven. We will be making this hearty and filling bread on a regular basis from now on!

Easy Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
This is a terrific and easy recipe. Works just as well with a kitchenaid mixer..Check the review & instructions given by crispystuff here on site..didn't need the egg, and used olive oil because that's what I had on hand..my husband says its even better than his Dad's bread! The only substitute I made was doubling the yeast to 2 tsps because my yeast had been sitting in the fridge a while! Kudos to the recipe provider!

Spicy Plum Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
This is a good recipe. Just opened my first jar recently after preserving, and it's very good. Yellow plums are not necessarily the best choice to make this with..a little mild but definitely useable!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Was looking for something reminiscent of childhood..this is a great recipe.. I put !/2 shortening and 1/2 butter..flattens them out a bit, but if you chill the dough for an hour before baking they hold their shape much nicer.

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
We used this for our Chinese New Year's feast, and all agreed this was pretty close! Remember to pre-boil the wontons until nearly cooked (when they float basically) and finish cooking them in the heated broth. This keeps your soup from looking cloudy! Thanks for a great wonton formula!

Crusty White Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
This is a terrific and easy recipe. I made this recipe one evening, and let the loaves sit on racks in their pans overnite. The next morning I noticed that the loaf bottoms were a little soft and moist; so I put them on a pizza stone in the oven @ 400 for about 15 minutes to crisp up the crust. Otherwise, don't change a thing! Thanks for a fail-safe bread recipe!

This is a fabulous recipe. Like others have said, be sure and boil the custard until it becomes thick. Just watch the heat and continuously whisk. Very good and thanks

Easy Lemon-Blueberry Jam

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This is a wonderful recipe. Worthy of the cookbooks. I was worried about the sugar in the gelatin, but it turned out fine. Loads of great reviews. A great use for all the squished berries you get when you buy the large flats. I will be giving this away for xmas presents! Thank you Joyce!
