Lemon Chicken Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2014
Certainly is an easy recipe, even with starting off with raw chicken and poaching it. I made some changes, including sauteeing the carrots and an onion, chopped in about a tbsp. of oil for a few minutes until tender, then adding salt, pepper, about 1 tsp of dried thyme and about 2 tsp of dried parsley, and continuing to sautee for another minute. I added the broth and rice and simmered for about 10 minutes before adding the lemon juice (only used 2 lemons and this was lemony enough) and the cut up chicken and then gently heating for about 10 minutes. Went over well with these modifications. Serves with sourdough rye bread. Thanks!

Snickerdoodles V

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
Taste exactly as they should. Lactose free, which is good for our household. The dough was a little dry and at times difficult to roll into balls.

Simple Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
This was pretty good. You definitely need to have another vegetable. There was a ton of liquid left in the pot, and I should have thickened it and served it with the beef.

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2014
This cake was lovely made with some pears that were almost over ripe. Served with a small amount of whipped cream on each slice. Can't wait to try it toasted.

Caramelized Turnips

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
These were not to our liking. They needed more water not to burn and they were too sweet. Sorry!

Easy Maple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014
I don't eat meat. so I am going on my husband and son's reviews. They really liked the flavours, but the pork was a little overcooked, although it was cooked according to the recipe.

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2014
Pretty good. For my taste, I would reduce the chocolate chips to 1 1/2 cups, as I feel the chocolate taste overwhelms all the others, and I would increase the coconut by 1/2 cup, as I was really having a hard time identifying that. Thanks!

Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
This was very easy, and my husband liked it a lot. Rubbed the roast with salt, pepper, garlic powder and basil and added a bay leaf to the crock pot. Used beef broth (10 oz) and no water, and thickened the liquid with a flour water slurry while the roast rested. Thanks!

Irish Champ

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
This was lovely and a different way to have mashed potatoes. Used a little less green onion, and that was perfect for us. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
This is how I made it, and the meat eaters in my family loved it. Second helpings all around. I sautéed a medium onion and 2 celery stalks in some canola oil until they were tender. Removed them and melted the butter in the same pan. Added 1 tsp tarragon, salt, pepper, and a pinch of cayenne, as well as the flour. Followed the rest of the recipe other than sprinkling the top with some panko as well as the rest of the parmesan, thanks to other reviewers. Baked for a little less time than indicated, just until the top was beginning to brown and the casserole was bubbly. Thanks for the great inspiration!

Slow Cooker Guinness® Beef Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2014
This was easy to make and made the house smell delicious. Even though I used small potatoes, it took much longer than the recipe stated to cook - close to 2 hours instead of 1. My husband loved this, but my daughter said the meat was weird but the sauce was delicious. Thanks!

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Made these with half whole wheat flour and with 0 percent fat plain organic yogurt and they turned out delicious. They weren't too sweet, which is a problem, I feel, with many blueberry muffins. The recipe made 15 muffins for me. Thanks!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2014
This soup was pretty tasty and not at all difficult to make. To try to make it even easier, instead of separating the one can of bens and the tomatoes, I cooked everything together and then used my immersion blender to partially puree the soup. Next time, I would reduce the amount of broth added, as many reviewers suggest and have done. My guess is that this soup will taste even better after sitting overnight. Garnished with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, minced red and yellow peppers, and a sprinkle of chopped flat leaf parsley. Black bean soup, in my opinion, is delicious but not too beautiful, so it needs to be prettied up a bit. Served with baked whole wheat pitas sprinkled with lemon pepper and seasoned salt and a romaine salad with avocadoes, oranges and red onion. Thanks!

Maryanne's Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
The taste of this cornbread was wonderful, with one modification. I used a scant 1/4 cup of sugar instead of the cup called for, and that was perfect for us. The corn kernels were a lovely addition. The only issue I had with this cornbread was that it was quite crumbly. I might add a bit of buttermilk or sour cream next time to try to combat that issue. Perfect flavour served alongside black eyed pea gumbo for a hearty New Years Day dinner. Thanks!

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
This was absolutely delicious, and very simple to make. The only ingredient changes I made were to use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and to add salt and pepper near the end of the cooking time. I simmered it for longer than the recipe calls for, as my rice was still hard at the end of the specified cooking time. This is my first time cooking with black eyed peas and it will definitely become a New Years Day tradition in our house. Thanks!

Beerbecue Beef Flank Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
This was very well liked by my family and was not a lot of trouble to make. I like the idea of boiling the marinade to use as a basting sauce instead of just pouring all that flavour down the drain. Thanks!

Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
This was very good, and so easy that it deserves 5 stars. I mad half the recipe, used real heavy cream, whipped, and made the chocolate topping suggested by the most popular reviewer of this recipe instead of using prepared frosting. Thanks!

Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
This was just OK. Made as directed, I would not call this luscious. I thought it needed more cheese to balance the artichoke taste, and to make it more creamy. Thanks!

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This was easy and delicious. This is what I did differently: I used fresh broccoli that I blanched before adding to the mixture. I used chopped sautéed cremini mushrooms instead of ham because I am vegetarian. I added salt, pepper, dehydrated onions and a pinch of nutmeg, as well as half a teaspoon of mustard powder to the egg mixture. I baked longer, and it could have been longer still, but I think that's my oven's fault. This was a great inspiration. Thanks!
