Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
I'm with the majority of those who enjoyed both the ease and the great taste of this banana bread. It is very light. I used a bundt pan and otherwise followed the given directions. This sure won't last long. P.S. It makes your kitchen smell wonderful. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Having plenty of chicken to cook I doubled this recipe. It was flavourful but not fabulous. Although I wouldn't cut out the liquid smoke I would use a little less. Everyone ate it without complaint though. Thanks for the recipe.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Really really good! Luckily I doubled the recipe as some went back for 3rds! I was told to put this in with our favourites and asked to make again tomorrow. Now those are good indications that this is one great recipe. I followed the directions as printed except kept my cooked chicken warming in the oven rather than adding it to the sauce. I will say that it took a little more time than my usual dinner prep time but the great flavours (which were also described to me during dinner)were certainly worth the result. I served over rice with steamed beans that I sauteed quickly in a little Asain Ginger Dressing (also from this site).

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
For some reason the walnuts did nothing for the flavour of this otherwise nice little bread. Perhaps it is just my families taste. This bread smelled heavenly while baking. To prevent the berries from sinking do the dusting in flour step but I took another reviewers suggestion to be sure to beat the eggs thouroughly when adding them. I had no problem as they dispersed evenly. I will try again without the nuts.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I was a little let down by my result with so many great reviews. I don't think 15 minutes is a long enough rising time. I also found that 24 rolls did not fit into my 9 x 13" ceramic baking pan so I used another 8 x 8" pan which happened to be metal. Oddly the rolls cooked up nicer in the metal pan. In any case they did get eaten so I will try again.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Very Very Good! I used pork tenderloin as that is what I had. It was delicious in this recipe. The sauce is just right not too sweet not too sour. I didn't find this all too time consuming as some had stated. I found it all came together quite quickly.I was told that the kitchen smelled like a Chinese restaurant. Will make this again for sure. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I was feeling adventurous wanting to try a new vegetable when I came upon this recipe. I followed the recipe excactly but did find that my beets took 1 and 1/2 hours to become tender. So figure in this extra time if your beets are on the large size as mine were. What was most surprising to me was the flavour or the greens. Delicious! I seasoned them with salt and pepper and doused with red wine vinegar. Beets are high in iron, fibre and vitamin C so you can fuel your body and delight your taste buds at the same time with this tasty side dish.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
I hadn't used my breadmaker for quite some time but having some free time on a Sunday afternoon I thought I would give this bread a go. What a wonderful aroma! This bread turned out beautifully. It is all long gone and I have been requested to make another loaf tomorrow. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Chutney Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
This wonderful recipe fed 6 people (2 kids included). I found Patak's Major Grey Mango Chutney. It must be an international brand. It was a mild chutney so I added 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes. I also ran the chutney through the food processor to remove the big chunks as well as to stretch the quantity. I didn't salt the chicken thighs just to be sure it wasn't overpowered. Everyone cleaned their plate. Although I'm sure you could use other cuts of chicken the thighs are the perfect texture and turn out very moist. I served over rice with roasted parsnips and carrots and a cucumber salad as sides.Thank you so much for this recipe

Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
This was kind of "ho hum" for my family. We all ate it over rice and the males even went back for seconds (they are always hungry). I doubled the recipe and added a little more brown sugar, vinegar and worchestershire sauce, but I found it to be uninteresting. Thanks anyway

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
I have to agree with everyone this is an excellent soup. And so quick to put together. For those who found their soup wasn't thick enough I suggest when making the milk, flour, butter sauce or roux, to be patient after adding the milk. Mine did not thicken after 5 minutes. It took about 10. I raised the heat and really stirred constantly and kept a close watch so not to scortch it on the pan bottom. This gave the soup a nice consistantcy. When I reheated it for another bowl later in the day I found that I actually had to dilute it with a little chicken broth as it was too thick! Also, as another reviewer cautioned - go easy on the pepper- I found that just under 3/4 tsp. was plenty. The amount of salt required really depends on the ham you are using and whether you use salted butter in the roux. Thank you for this terrific recipe that I know I will be making again and again.

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
When I was growing up, Saturday night was always "beaners and weins". Until I tried this baked bean recipe I only ate the weiner part of the meal in the for of a hot dog. Now I love the beans as does the rest of the family. Note-- I forgot to add the mustard but the dish was still yummy. Thanks!

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
This is the second Thanksgiving dinner I have served this lovely pie at. My son asked me if I was going to make "that pie" again (12 yr. old). My adult daughter make a face when she heard the pie was going to be pumpkin but tried this one and was picking crumbs from her plate. I used Bakers Secret Pie Crust from this site and it was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing.

Never-Ever-Fail Meringue

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
I was very pleased with this meringue. Another tip for those whose meringue seems to slip off lemon pies is to make sure you place the meringue on top of the lemon filling while it ( the lemon ) is still hot. It slightly cooks the bottom of the meringue thus adhering it to the pie. Also make sure to spread the meringue all the way to the edges sealing them.

Harvest Yams

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Excellent! I am not a yam/potato fan and I wasn't sure how the maple syrup,nutmeg, cinnamon would taste with a first course but these were delicious. Make sure you use real maple syrup as artificial really would change the taste. Thanks for this fine recipe.

Marinated Mushrooms II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
Sometimes I treat myself to the expensive marinated mushrooms at the deli. Not anymore! These are so good. I didn't find them too vinegary as some other reviewers stated they had. Thank you for sharing your Grandmothers recipe.**Update: I chose a stuffed mushroom recipe to serve at our Christmas dinner. My son and his girlfriend both said they were disappointed as they were so looking forward to having these "scrumptious little babies" I won't replace them again.
