Banana Orange Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
By itself the banana "bar" had good flavour but it didn't cook all the way through in the amount it said to cook them. The frosting had great flavour and great colour. That being said I'm not sure what place it had on a banana "bar". My dad enjoyed them, but he enjoys anything food related. :P

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I have made shepherd pie a ton of times and had never tried it with cheese. What a great addition. Next time I will use more meat though to even out the ratio.

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I'm rating this a five for when I used all fresh vegetables. I have made it following the recipe and it is not nearly as good. The canned vegetables turn to mush and it wasn't as flavourful. My suggestions: use all fresh vegetables, add poultry seasoning, thyme, parsley and concentrated chicken oxo. Add about 2 tbsp flour to soup mixture to help thicken. I'm confident enough with these changes to serve this to company.

Kevin's Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
The pineapple juice gave it a sweet after taste. Very moist, juicy chicken. It was good but I wouldn't make it for company. I used fresh garlic and ginger.

Mini Chip Snowball Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
They were a little dry but had a nice texture. I didn't have mini chips so I used large ones instead. I also substituted toffee bits for the nuts.

Artichoke Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
A nice change from the regular mashed tats I make. Company enjoyed them but couldn't really tell it was artichoke it them, whether that is a good thing or not. Next time I will use even more garlic and more artichokes. Very creamy potatoes.

Stuffed Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This is a great recipe to use for company. It tastes like you fussed without having to. Cube the meat before browning to allow for easier serving. For the stuffing don't forget rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper and some chicken broth.

Sour Cream Apple Pie Deluxe

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
This is a nice twist on apple pie. I used a store bought crust but I found that the exposed crust browned way too fast. Even after covering it I found that it was too gross to eat. That being said the pie itself was great!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I used the suggestions of others and reduced the heat and covered the dish. I found that it was steamed cauliflower opposed to roasted. The flavour wasn't bad but it was fairly mushy.

Mom's Italian Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
This was so good. I added potatoes, carrots, celery, parsley, concentrated beef stock and omitted the tomato sauce. The kids loved it. I loved it. I WILL make this again. It did thicken up quite a bit so today with the leftovers I will just add more broth. Excellent starter recipe.

Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Following the advice of other reviewers I omitted the vanilla and opted for maple extract. Even after using 1 1/2 tsp of the extract I found it light on flavour. I might make up the glaze that was suggested today and see how I like that. This recipe does produce light, uniform cookies.

Beef and Irish Stout Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
Fantastic. I made this for my family and then had 7 extra people show up for dinner. I was scraping the pot to get every last speck for everybody. One man even asked me for the recipe. I did add red potatoes, celery, concentrated beef stock, bay leaf, Worcestershire sauce and extra cayenne pepper.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
This is a great recipe for over ripe bananas. I've been using this recipe for over a year and it always gets compliments. I add about 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to the batter but it isn't necessary.

Gramma's Date Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
Made these for my parents and they LOVED them. I used vanilla instead of lemon juice. I actually goofed on the recipe and used 1 cup of butter so to make up for it I added 1/2 cup extra rolled oats. They couldn't tell so why should I? ;) If you like date squares then use this recipe.

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
It was a good alternative to regular tacos. Next time I wouldn't cook it with the sour cream added, I would top it with it after baking. I did add a layer of medium salsa.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I have made this recipe twice for turkey dinners. I don't eat cranberry sauce but both times my company has asked to take the leftovers home. One of my guests even wanted it over vanilla ice cream.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I HATE squash but my husband likes it so I tried this recipe out on him. He loved it but the kids and I almost threw up from the texture. If you like squash then chances are you will like this recipe.

Scalloped Potatoes I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I've been using this recipe for almost two years already and each time it turns out great. I find it needs more cooking time. I've usually had to add extra milk and the last time I added rubbed tarragon to the layers.
