Classic Goulash

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2015
Fairly quick and easy to prepare for the week nights, especially when using the slow cooker method. Family liked this much more than I did.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2015
We had a soup night yesterday(http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Tim-Perrys-Soup-Creamy-Curry-Cauliflower-and-Broccoli-Soup/?prop31=3)and for some reason I thought of having cornbread with it. I don't often think of cornbread as a dinner side, especially if sweet. But the sweetness complimented the more savory flavours in the soup. I decided to try baking it in a cast iron skillet. 24 minutes later it was ready to eat. Beautiful when served warm. Confession: I accidentally put double the baking soda in the batter but without duplicate ingredients for a do-over, I had to forge ahead. I thought it was doomed to taste soapy and 10" tall but fortunately it was fine.

Tim Perry's Soup (Creamy Curry Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup)

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2015
I've only just finished making this soup and must say, if everyone enjoys this at dinner as much as I have pre-tasting it, it's going to be a big hit and live up to my good review. I followed the recipe as written with no changes. I did use an immersion blender to smooth the texture only a bit but this is a personal preference. Thanks for sharing! Post dinner follow-up: Everyone loved it. My son, who ate later, sought me out to say how much he enjoyed this soup. So thanks again Sheila. It's a winner!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
Less than 5 minute prep? What a great dish for those wanting to offer a delicious homemade dinner, especially on busy weekdays. I had all ingredients on hand and enough pork chops to either serve them as leftovers or brown bag them for lunch. I tripled the sauce and had only a wee bit extra. (Better more than not enough) Needless to say, at the end of the meal there weren't any left. Thank you for sharing your recipe Kim- This one's a gem!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2014
Other than mediocre pulled pork/chicken, there isn't a slow cooker recipe that I like except for an old family favourite - "Grandma 's Spaghetti". Until this recipe! It lives up to it's high reviews. The aroma is wonderful and with the soy sauce and green pepper ingredients, has a yummy almost Chinese food smell. Arriving home from work everyone said they hoped the dinner that they smelled from the driveway was coming from their kitchen. This recipe is so good! * I finally solved the mystery of the auto feature on my slow cooker. If anyone else, who stupidly threw out the box & instructions is wondering, when initially set on auto, the temperature will stay at high for 1 hour then will automatically change to low for the remainder of cook time. More than a few sources stated the flavour is remarkably improved. Very cool!

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
More proof that the simplest of recipes often produce a delicious surprise. There are no competing ingredients. I thought the onion might take over but it didn't. I think I will be making this a lot in the future. Thanks so much for sharing your little gem

Nonna's Tuscan Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2014
While this dressing has all the right ingredients the flavour balance seems off. Adding the suggested corn syrup (light rather than golden) helped a little, but I still found it still sharp.

Strawberry Cream Roll

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
I found the cake quite dry with a coffee cake texture. If I have another go I will look for a recipe more pound cake like. Once the dry edges were trimmed the recipe came together easily. Good flavour. Thanks for sharing.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Very nice.There are very few perks to dining with a picky eater. This evening's dinner I enjoyed one of them. Being the only mushroom fan, I was more than happy to have them all to myself. I followed the recipe as written, only adding a little parsley for colour and the slight freshness it provides. Thank you so much for posting a real keeper.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
In an attempt to tidy up my recipe box I realized there are some recipes that I have overlooked. That's what happens when your recipe box is bursting with more than a couple of thousand saved items. So, I finally made this chicken dish served with Garlic Spinach (AR) and it made for a delicious meal. There is absolutely no exaggeration in the quoted 35 minute prep and cook time, allowing this dish to be enjoyed any day of the week. I used marinated artichokes and used half mayo/sour cream. A reviewer had suggested toasting some Panko crumbs and sprinkling them on top. I might add that the next time. I was very careful to drain and even press excess liquid from the artichokes but still had a small amount of water in the baking dish described by some reviewrs. I say "just never mind" as it in no way took away from the taste and texture. I would suggest that the Parmesan cheese be of the best brand affordable or at least freshly grated. I'm pointing this out as the flavour of the cheese comes through in just the most perfect balance and therefore this might be where to spend a little extra if possible. At first I cringed at the price of a fairly small piece but it really lasts when stored correctly. Thanks for posting a great recipe.

Garlic Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Delicious! Done in a flash! Healthy and Economical. This made a perfect side dish to Artichoke Chicken (another yummy AR recipe). There's just something about the wonderful aroma of butter garlic and lemon juice. Oh...the spinach turns a lovely bright and fresh green colour too - So Kudos all around.

Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken a la Cynjne

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
How nice to be surprised. I haven't always been happy with crock pot meals but this is a recipe that I will keep and make again for sure. Rather than cut back on salt (a few reviewers said "too salty") I used unsalted butter and paid attention to how much salt there was already built in the called for ingredients that I cannot control - the soup for example. I'm a Kosher salt fan as I find the flavour is less harsh and more pleasing even when using less. As a personal preference I used half white wine and half chicken broth. I was unsure if 4 hours on low would be long enough so I began at high for about an hour then turned to low for the remaining time. The chicken was very tender and the sauce smooth. I served it over basmati rice with a broccoli side. Delicious! The following night I made egg noodles serving them with the remaining sauce. Add economical as another bonus. Thanks so much for posting.

Beginner Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
"Beginner" ?? The taste sure isnt! I continue to learn that many of the simplest recipes are the best. The dark meat of the thighs make a difference as they add to the flavour. In addition to dumplings I sometimes prepared egg noodles for those who like it served that way and frequently because the dumplings tend to disappear so fast! A very good recipe! More thoughts: To economise I've bought skin on bone in chicken (big $ difference). Using an oven & stovetop safe pot, the chicken can then be roasted in the oven at 350-375 degrees for approximately 30-40 minutes. Once cooled the skin & bones are easily removed. Any excess fat can be spooned off and the cooked crispy bits in the pot's bottom will add to the favour. At this point carry on as directed, perhaps choosing to omit the butter as the only change. Healthorg's recipe is delicious as posted but I'm finding with the price of ready prepped chicken so dear, this can be a savings option by slightly altering only the method. Cheers!

Sweet Chili Thai Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Do not add cornstarch directly into any hot liquid. It will quickly turn into a gooey lumpy mess. Add enough water and stir to dissolve the required amount of cornstarch. Whisk while it's being added and there shouldn't be any lumps. I made a few Chinese dishes for New Year's dinner and made some different sauces for variety. I found the vinegar overpowering. The base flavour of this sauce was good enough that I may have another go, adjusting the amount of vinegar. Thank you for posting.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I've been wanting to make spanakopita for a long time but unfortunately it didn't seem to catch any one's interest. And then.....there was that dreaded S ingredient. I have at last graduated from the school of "Putting Everyone Else First" and my choices now hold some menu merit. Great flavours in the spinach cheese filling mix and the phyllo doughs texture and appearance. Thank you for sharing a great recipe SILVERWOLF.
