San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2012
It's not the best bread I have ever had in my entire life, but it was still really good. My starter is only 10 days or so old, so it's not particularly sour, but it smells to high heaven before being used and it's made three loaves in the bread machine with a distinct sour taste. This wasn't so much sour, but it was really tasty fresh from the oven with a thin layer of butter. I made two loaves in loaf pans instead of rounds on a baking sheet, one without onions on top and the other with, and it worked out well. The crust is thick and crunchy, and smells like pretzels. I will definitely make this again.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
This is great!! So much better than the canned version from the store. My husband and I love the flavor in this. Both of our kids are super picky, and even the pickier of the two, after some coaxing to try it, is eating it by the chipmunk mouth full (cheeks packed to bursting). I am glad I made a double batch. We'll be making this from now on.

A Baker's Secret for Bread Machines

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Just because there are 40 years of master baking, doesn't mean you can run a bread machine. I followed the instructions, but varied the ingredients a bit. Someone said that theirs didn't rise because there was no sugar to feed the yeast, so I added 1T of sugar, substituted butter for the lard, and followed the rest. What I got was a lumpy mass of something that resembled bread, but was tough and salty, even with the added sugar! I couldn't taste the cinnamon at all. I'm trying it again, following the suggestion of cutting the salt in half, and using 1T of honey instead of sugar, and putting the yeast on top of the other ingredients. Toward the end of the kneading cycle I noticed it was several balls of yucky and not all of the flour was incorporated, so I added more water, approx. 1/3C. After adding the water, it looks like a ball of dough, so here's to hoping it rises and survives the punch down. If it tastes good, I'll be making it again, otherwise, I'm looking for a different recipe.

Taco Bake

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
Is good. I left out the chilies because I was already pushing it with the onion for the kids. I had to add more water for the noodles to cook (one dish method). It's kind of spaghetti-ish, which I'm sure the chilies would have fixed. Next time I may add salsa instead of onion and tell the kids to stuff it (their faces...)

Atomic Canuck Chili

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
HOT HOT HOT! I absolutely love this recipe. I made it exactly how the recipe reads, with the exception of cooking it in a slow cooker, as mine was way to small. I heat it on way-super-flame-almost-out low for about an hour and it was fine. I'm not too sure about the celery (I don't like celery) and the carrots though. Next time I'll make it w/o and see how that goes. I suggest drinking milk and eating bread with this. I used a little more beer (Bud Light, as I have no clue when it comes to Canadian beer) and added 1 tbsp more chili flakes, 4 taco sauce packets from Taco Bell and Jack Daniel's BBQ Sauce. VERY VERY good. Going to serve to my sister-in-law's firefighter husband and see how he likes it.

Chicken with Lime Butter

Reviewed: May 2, 2005
This wasn't the best meal I've ever had. I found the chicken to by dry, way too much butter and not enough lime flavor for my tastes. I served the chicken and sauce over egg nooddles. It gets two stars, because I at least could eat it without wanting to dump it and make something else. I don't plan on making this again, but if I did I would thicken the sauce and add more lime, then adjust the amount of butter accordingly.
