Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This is pretty good. I followed the directions exactly except that I lined my baking dish with tin foil and covered the dish for the first 30 min. The sauce was quite thin to enjoy it spooned over rice as a side dish but the following day it had thickened up. Made great left-overs.

Great garlic flavour. This marinade used overnight sure tenderized some steaks that would have been tough.

Rhubarb Bread I

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
I like the fact that this makes 2 loaves. I had to use frozen rhubarb and did not thaw it. The topping was a little gloppy so difficult to spread evenly but tasted good. This took a little more than an hour to bake through properly so test carefully. Overall an enjoyable springtime dessert.

Salmon Dill Croissants

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
Really good flavour and a nice change from tuna. I found it a little runny and may add more salmon or reduce the creamed cheese next time.*Update* This mixture thickens up overnight in the fridge therefore it's fine just the way it is. Tastes like smoked salmon. Yummy!

Special Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
These were pretty good but like other reviewers I found them runny. Maybe the relish should be strained and a touch less mayo used. I also think that green onion would taste less harsh. The horseradish flavour was nice though.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
This is the kind of dessert I like. Easy and chocolatey but not oversweet. Great to enjoy with a cup of tea. These don't rise too much if you use the 9 X 13" pan. I cut the flour amount to 1 generous cup, omitted the nuts but kept to the directions for everything else. Thanks!

Easy Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
A nice dessert that everyone must have enjoyed as there is none left. I followed the directions as written, using granny smith apples. Good apple cinnamon taste. It does fall apart in the middle where the apples are when sliced. No one seemed to mind though!

New Potatoes with Caper Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2008
Wow! This is really good! Suprisingly everyone young and old liked it and that included a couple of picky eaters. The tang of the capers was toned down just enough by the "creaminesss" of the potatoes and the parmesean cheese. Adding the mixed sauce to the still hot potatoes really brought out the flavours of the fresh parsley (a must for the best taste) and green onions. We were licking the pot. Thanks so much for this recipe.

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2008
I think this dish would have been equally delicious just as written but due to using what I had at home and catering to pickiness I altered it slightly. I used 1 tbsp veg. oil & 2 tbsp hot chili oil which gave a nice oriental spice flavour. I used 2 green onions, celery, cooked shrimp, diced deli bought chicken, 1/2 green pepper, 1 diced carrot which I parboiled for 4 min. 1/4C soy sauce and about 2 cups of cold cooked white rice.You may want to use low-sodium soy sauce if you prefer a less salty taste. No one complained here though. I followed the directions as written. Wow! Does this ever make your kitchen smell yummy! I overheard some children playing outside asking where that "good food smell" was coming from. This is an easy quick and quick to clean up recipe that I will continue to make in the future.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
After too long a wait I finally got around to making these tasty little morsels. I did cut the amount of cayenne pepper down to 1/2 tsp. and that was spicy enough for me. The fresh lime juice in the sauce is so "perky". This is the first battered fish I have tried and I thought it was great. My son finished up the leftovers for a late snack tonight so he must have really enjoyed them. What a nice change from the usual fare!

Brown Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I really like rice a a side dish and wanted to try brown for a change. After reading all the reviews I used low sodium broths and used garlic powder rather than garlic salt. Even the butter was unsalted. Needless to say my rice was not salty at all. I did cover while baking. The baking time was 1 1/2 hr. This was very creamy yet not mushy. I will make this again for sure.

Marinated Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I've been using this marinade for so long I couldn't remember where I got the recipe from. Good thing I did not try to submit it. That being said, this is a very good marinade. The flavours blend well together and the pork chops always come out juicy. I turn the pork chops over a few times while they are marinating. As another reviewer mentioned. Don't overcook the meat. Thanks for many yummy pork chop dinners! **Update** Many times I 1/2 this marinade when I use chops that are thinner than 1" or I am preparing less meat. I hate wasting something like this that tastes so good.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
Although not my favourite, the 3 males of the family loved this. The dish is completely empty and I only had a small serving! Very "Cheese Whizzy" but as it calls for that type of cheese I shouldn't have been surprised. I used a full cup of rice rather than the 1/2 called for and the consistancy seemed right. I used fresh broccoli which I steamed till fork tender as I prefer that rather than frozen. The bacon and onion flavour was good. For sure I will make this again as it was really appreciated. Thanks for the recipe.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Wonderful! I am the only one in my household who will eat quiche so It is mine alone. I followed the directions exactly but had to use swiss cheese with a little cheddar as that is what I had. I also arranged sliced tomatoes and mushrooms on the top. I will make this again as I am sure to crave it.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I made this mix up a few months ago and forgot I still had it. I have been enjoying caesar salads lately but tonight felt like Italian. So convenient to just mix this up in the morning and have homemade dressing on the table for dinner.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
This turned out a little on the dry side for me. If I make it again I will start testing it at 50 min. Unfortunatly I had only dried cranberries which were ok but fresh ones would be better. The orange zest is very nice in this bread.

Fiesta Fry Pan Dinner

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Not bad. I felt it was a little plain so I added some extra taco seasoning, cumin and chili powder. The cheddar cheese on top helped a little too. We also indulged with a couple of dollops of sour cream. I had only regular rice which I prepared seperately then added in place of the minute rice. This was a very economical meal. Both my son and BF enjoyed.

Frosted Sandwich Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
Using whatever sandwich filling you like this makes a lovely brunch/shower offering. When I was a girl I remember the bakery would sell coloured loaves which they would slice horizontally for us. We then could have different coloured bread slices as well as different fillings in each sandwich.

Birthday Bones

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
I took these as a gift for my brother's dog. She really enjoyed them but I think she would just about eat anything! It was convenient to only pull together 4 ingredients. When I rolled out the dough I found it would not stay together- lots of -cracks. I still managed to cut out about 40 small size dog bone shaped cookies but I threw some of the dough away as it was a pain to work with. Thanks for the recipe though Bailie liked them.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
Very enjoyable soup. I picked all the good leftover meat off the turkey before I put the carcass in the pot. This is my least favourite part of any turkey meal but having this soup as the end result was worth it. I followed the directions and found the consistancy just right.The amount of carrots and celery were good and although I thought that 3 onions might have been to much, it wasn't at all. I may try adding egg noodles instead of rice next time but that is just personal preference. This makes lots so I plan to freeze some to enjoy over the cold winter. Thanks so much.
