Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Excellent! Subbed milk with a little lemon for the buttermilk since I didn't have any. Also added walnuts because that's what I had. Very moist and flavorful banana bread!

Beef Pho

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Wow this was a lot of work but worth it! My hubby and I were craving some Pho and they don't have any Vietnamese restaurants where we moved to. (Oh man do I miss the Asian food in Los Angeles!) It was good but the broth was really rich and milky. I think this was from the suggestion of using beef knucle which usually makes a milky broth. Not like the clear delicate broth I'm used to getting. I should have gone with my gut instinct and gotten a boneless cut. I think part of the problem is that I also didn't leave the spice bag in longer than 5 min. That was a personal thing.. I was tasting the broth and any longer would have been too strong on the spices for my taste. I added a large 'sweated' onion and toasted the spices before making the spice bag per suggestions. Also be warned.. you WHOLE house will smell of this broth it's pretty potent. Leave the windows open. :)

Easy Devonshire Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
I make it to go with "Grandma Johnson's Scones" from this site. This is some dangerous stuff. I am prone to just eat it by the spoonful!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
OMG these make the most AMAZING scones. They are rich, not too sweet, moist and to die for! You'll never be able to buy scones from *THAT* coffee place again. I think my favorite thing to do is add grated lemon rind. It lends a delicate lemon flavor. I love to make a double batch and freeze the extra dough into smaller portions. (If I make them all, I tend to eat them all..) It's always handy to have on hand if I get a hankering for scones.

Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Gal-Bi)

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Hi folks I just wanted to add some information I thought might be helpful. I'm Korean & galbi is always a favorite! The crockpot method everyone is mentioning is actually a legit Korean Dish called Galbi Chim (Braised Shortribs) Make sure and skim off the fat when it's done.. there will be a lot! I like to use shortribs that are a few inchs across. Makes for a nice meaty piece. Additions of carrot, chestnut, boiler onion and potato is delish! Eat w/some steamed rice as the flavors will be pretty concentrated to eat alone. Tip from my mom: remember to rinse off the ribs well before marinading. Give the bones a good rub with your hands under some running water or you will bite in and get bone bits. Ouch! We like to just leave them in a colander to drain a bit. Also the addition of 1/2 a grated kiwi or some pineapple will really make the meat tender if you intend to grill it. Just make sure not to leave it in the marinade for more than a day. I got carried away once and my meat fell apart as I was trying to put it on the grill!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Lumping problem hint: Your strawberries must not have been fully dry. Even a little bit of water into melted chocolate will cause it to seize. Just add water a little bit at a time and keep stiring, it will become smooth again.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
Awesome! Really filling and warm on a cold night. I made a few changes to adjust to my liking. I left out the chiles (not really a fan). Used half and half instead of milk. I think I'll just stick to the milk next time, it seems pretty rich. Added a can of creamed corn and increased the potoatos. It made a ton. Will try to freeze as some reviewers have done.

French Onion Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
I love onion soup and this recipe is great! I sauteed the onions very slowly on a lower temperature for optimum flavor and added a shake of worcestershire sauce for some added complexity like other reviewers have suggested. I didn't have small oven proof bowls so I just toasted some bread and topped with the cheese and broiled in my toaster oven. I ladled the soup into bowls and floated the toast on top. YUM!

Pad Thai

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
Good Pad Thai. I more than doubled the sauce. Make sure your wok is good and large or else you will make a mess and have a difficult time mixing the noodles in. It is less greasy that what you usually get in Thai restaraunts. This is good or bad depending on your tastes.

Banana Bread

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
This is a great meatloaf. I did make some changes to the recipe. I left out the cheese. I added some fresh minced garlic. I used the whole onion soup mix but increased the ground beef to 2 lbs. Substitute the cracker crumbs with bread crumbs. Another reviewer's suggestion to line the bottom of the pan with bread was genius! It kept the loaf above most of the grease in the pan. I freeze old bread just for this purpose. Try it you won't be disappointed!

Simple Malaysian Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
I was looking for a chicken recipe that didn't have very many ingredients. This fit the bill! I marinated chicken thighs and drumsticks cut into quarters and halves respectively. I was concerned that the chicken might be bland and I marinated for 24 hours. It was wonderful! I fried as stated in the directions. I don't think this would be as moist and good with breast meat. I am rating it a 4 because I felt the marinate was missing some heat and a fresh zing. I will try again by adding some lemon juice, some finely chopped jalepeno, and maybe a little cilantro to the marinade.
