Blue Cheese Crusted Filet Mignon with Port Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
I actually used this on a roast. I had put the roast in the crock pot and made the sauce as the recipe said. Then I sliced the roast put the blue cheese mixture on and poured the sauce over it reserving some to serve with and cooked it in the oven for 5 minutes. It was FABULOUS. I had people for dinner and they went nuts for it. Thanks for a great recipe that is very versatile.

Brie Cheese Appetizer

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
This is fabulous. I used red pepper jelly in one of them and Apricot in the other and they disappeared from the table within 10 minutes! Fabulous.

Grilled Steak with Olive-Blue Cheese Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
I decided to use gorgonzola and followed the rest of the recipe to a "T". We found it was a tad bland. The consistency and everything was perfect (I as well simmered it for a wee bit longer) and I used Consummee rather that broth. I will try this again with Blue Cheese as I believe that will give it the kick it needs and perhaps put in more than the recipe calls for. Otherwise a lovely creamy type sauce over the potatos and such.

Parmesan Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2005
I followed the amount of bread crumbs and everything to a tee BUT added other things as people suggested and these were adored. I added 1/2 a head of minced garlic, season salt (as I only used regular bread crumbs I added dry basil as well). I also added 3 tbsp Sambal Oleke and 4 tbsp of chilli garlic sauce. I only used 1-10 oz package of fresh spinach also. It was lovely!

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
I really loved this dish. Everyone thought it was a lovely decoration until I told them that they are to be eaten. They turned out lovely! The kids thought it was a hoot to eat them too.

Pumpkin Cookies with Penuche Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
Huge hit. Made these on a rainy day. My daughter tried a cookie and said "this is better than the stuff" meaning the batter she licked off the beaters. One BIG difference though I used a tin of ED Smith Pumpkin Pie Filling as they didn't have puree. I also patted down the batter after spooning it on the cookie sheet so they were not as cakie. Also, the icing was a bit sweet but only if you iced the whole cookie so I just drizzled it across them and WOWIE amazing. They turned out phenominal. Thanks for the recipe.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2005
This is very good but love a good heat so instead of the hot sauce I added 3 tsp of Sambal Oleke and 3 tbsp of Garlic Chilli sauce as well as 1 tsp of Red Curry Paste as well as doubling the garlic and adding 2 long green onions chopped fine.

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2005
I actually tweaked this recipe a bit and my husband said on a scale from 1-5 it was a 7! I basically just added 1/4 cup oyster sauce, instead of chilli sauce I subbed in Sambal Oleke and added 4 tbsp thai garlic chilli sauce. Then I kept the wings in the sauce after marinading for cooking for 40 minutes. At that point I put them to a separate baking pan and drizzled only a little sauce on them and baked for a further 20 minutes. While baking those I took the remainder of the sauce and heated it on a burner. I then added some cornstarch to water and then added that to the sauce pan and stirred until thick and served this as a dipping sauce with the wings. PHENOMINAL! Thanks for this recipe. Hub asked that I make this for everyone when they come out.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
I too used the changes the last person posted and WOWOWOWOWOOW. It needs to sit a bit for the flavours to fully merry but what a great recipe. Thanks so much everyone for your feedback and for the original poster. My new tradition is born.

Grilled Sausages with Caramelized Onions and Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
I too found this a very good dish but not out of this world. I think doubling the brown sugar and vinegar would be better. It was a nice change having the apples in there and the combination of flavours was good. I will definitely make this again. A nice autumn dish.

Orange Baked Ham

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2005
This was pretty good but found it could have used more honey and more zip. Next time I will use this recipe but add Worchestershire sauce.

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2005
This was an amazing salad. So wonderfully different. I too found that it made more though. I made a recipe for 6 for a pot luck and it made a huge bowl as I found it could take more pasta and veggies to the amount of dressing. I also trippled the amount of cheese. It was a rave.

Zucchini Apple Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2005
A very nice bread but it was very chunky. I grated the apple and zucchini the second batch and it was much better. Also I found it dry when I mixed in the zucchini and apple so I added a 5th egg which did the trick. Maybe my eggs were just on the small side but no matter. I'm sure it will be a big hit at my pumpkin carve tomorrow. I do love how the apple and zucchini merry together. Lovely recipe.

Stuffed Jalapenos III

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
These were amazing however, I did use the pineapple cream cheese (comes that way in the store) and whipped it up using my hand mixer. I used very large jalapenos thinking they wouldn't be as hot but they were but people still gobbled them all up! Actually, 3 people ate all of them prior to me getting them out of the kitchen - I was stunned. Amazing and am making them tonight. Thanks for a terrific recipe.

French Toast I

I really liked the nutmeg and the vanilla addition. I also added a few tablespoons of brown sugar to the mixture before dipping and it was really good. Great recipe.

Most Excellent Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
I used regular pork sausage and removed the casings and made sure to break it up to small pieces. I used real cheddar and added more on top as well. I topped with chives as well. This was excellent and hearty. A make again for sure.

Skiers' French Toast

Reviewed: May 31, 2006
AWESOME! I used regular store bought sliced bread and removed the crusts. For the egg mixture I used farm fresh eggs but reduced the milk a tad to a little over a cup. I added cinnamon and nutmeg as well. Also I didn't let the syrup mixture simmer I just melted the butter with the sugar and used PAM on the dish first...a MUST with this dish. A new favourite - very fattening but very good!

Kahala's Shrimp and Broccoli Toss

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
As is I would rate it bland an okay I wouldn't make it again but I added parmesian, tons of garlic, tomato paste, wine, and basil and the kids gobbled it up haha. Guess it is a different recipe now but the kids liked it much better and so did I.

Savory Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
These were sinfully amazing. I changed it up a bit. After I pulled the dough from the pan I kneeded flour into it as it was too sticky. Then I preped 1/4 cup butter melted, 6 cloves minced garlic, fresh diced rosemary and about 1 heaping tsp of thyme in a bowl. I dipped the bread pieces in there and put them in a 9x13 pan. After I basted on the remainder of the mixture adding 1 leaf of rosemary to the top of each. Then I grated parmesian and cheddar and sprinkled it ontop prior to baking. My fiance ADORED THEM. They were awesome! Thanks for the recipe.
