Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
Like many others, I was doubtful when I read through the ingredient list. But, if you follow the recipe, you don't end up with an Asian flavor for the marinade. The saltiness of the soy sauce blends with the sourness of the vinegar. The Worchestershire sauce adds a smoky flavor. Trust the positive reviews; all the flavors blend together! In addition to the lemon juice, I added a bit of lime juice to finish it off. I think next time I might add some fresh cilantro to the marinade as well

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
When my husband picked this recipe for dinner, I read it and thought, 'It sounds ok, but not that exciting.' I read the reviews with a bit of skepticism, thinking, 'How can a grilled veggie sandwich be THAT good?' But it was! The combination of the lemon mayo, the warmed feta, the foccacia...this sandwich was fabulous! I can't rave enough about it! We did marinate our veggies in a rosemary garlic marinade first, but that was the only change we made. If you can find foccacia, it is worth it. Thanks for a great recipe!

Unsloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
This recipe was very tasty. To thicken up the consistancy, I added one can of drained kidney beans at the same time as the tomatoes, cooked for 5-10 minutes, mashed slightly, and then added a second can of kidney beans. This gave a really nice, thick consistancy. We ate these open face on crusty rolls topped with shredded cheese and pickled jalapenos.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
I really didn't care much for the tangy flavour that the cottage cheese and sour cream gave to this dish, even though I like both. It wasn't like any 'macaroni and cheese' that I'd ever tasted, either in flavour or texture. I feel that the name is misleading. That said, my two kids loved it and polished off the leftovers. Despite being very easy, I don't think I'll be making this again.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
The whole family loved this, right down to the one-year-old. We added some sliced black olives to the top. I had good luck cooking it in a springform pan and I recommend spraying the foil with cooking spray so that the cheese doesn't stick to it.

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
My husband agrees that it is not authentic paella, but when it tastes like this, who cares? Great recipe! The whole family gobbled it down and the 1-year-old had three bowls! I didn't put the full amount of red pepper in, but brought the jar to the table for folks to add. I think the only changes I made was to eliminate the shrimp, to use green bell pepper instead of red, and to eliminate the lemon zest. I cooked the chorizo first and then cooked the chicken in the oil left by the chorizo. We all loved this recipe (fought over who got the leftovers the next day) and are planning to try it with different veggies in.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
This recipe just doesn't work for our family. When we made it as is, it was much too salty. When I cut back on the dressing mix, it wasn't very flavourful. It has a nice flavour when made according to the recipe, but far too salty for our palates.

Dried Cherry Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
This cake was dense, moist, and flavourful. I made with plain fat free yogurt that I had on hand and added a teaspoon of vanilla. After draining the cherries, I patted them dry between two paper towels before adding to the batter, and this seemed to help the cherries from sinking to the bottom. I made this in an 8x8 pan. I've also tried this recipe with blueberries, topped with a cream cheese icing. As others have said, this is a great recipe for adapting and I'm looking forward to trying with other dried fruits and flavoured yogurts.

Creamy Artichoke Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
This was tasty, but I found it a bit dry. Part of the fault was mine, as I have a huge jar of marinated artichokes from Costco and didn't know exactly how much of the liquid from the jar to add. I ended up adding the whole container of cottage cheese in order to moisten it up, and that seemed to help. I definitely enjoyed this dish and will experiment with adding more liquid from the jar of artichokes next time to see if that combats the dryness.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
This had a nice flavour, but we thought it was far too salty. This was after halving the amount of salt, using onion powder instead of onion salt and using only one package of dressing mix rather than the two suggested by many reviewers. We thought that the flavour was good enough to experiment with, perhaps by cutting out the salt entirely, but as is, it is much too salty for our tastes.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
This was very tasty! As we don't much like whole chickens, I made this with boneless mini breast fillets, which I trimmed and cut in half. Since I was making less chicken, I added chunks of carrots to the crockpot along with the chicken. I made the sauce exactly as stated in the recipe. I cooked for about five hours on low. With about a half hour left of cooking time, I tossed in some chopped red bell pepper and a can of drained water chestnuts. When it was finished cooking, I added a handful of chopped green onion and then served over rice. The chicken and carrots came out moist and tender!

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
I'm not a meatloaf fan in general, but my husband and daughter give this one five stars. I don't change a thing in the recipe, but make it in muffin tins for mini-meatloafs.

Chicken Chimichangas with Green Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
Wow! This was awesome. I have to admit, i was very skeptical of the sauce whilst cooking it, as it has an unusual flavour, but the flavour complements the chicken filling very well. The only change I made was using fat free cream of chicken, and this worked out just fine. I used precooked boneless breasts from the grocerry store and just chopped the chicken. I agree with a previous reviewer who suggested frying on a lower heat. My first one came out of the pan golden-brown, but was cold in the middle, so I turned down the heat for the rest. We served with a side of Mexican rice. The filling was so quick and tasty that we're going to try it in enchiladas. Thanks for such an unusual, yet tasty recipe!

No Bake Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 26, 2006
I made this recipe with my preschooler. So easy for us to do together and very tasty. I had mini marshmallows instead of large ones and used about 1 1/2 cups of the mini marshmallows. I didn't have any coconut on hand, so I added an extra half cup of the rolled oats to bulk it out. They turned out beautifully!

Barbecued Shredded Beef

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I cooked this in the slow cooker for 8 hours and it came out very tender. I seared the meat before putting it in the slow cooker and it was very moist and tender. We didn't end up adding nearly as much BBQ sauce as the recipe called for (we only used about 1/4-1/2 of the bottle), as we don't like our BBQ beef sandwiches to be overly saucy. We served these on the Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls (recipe on this site).

Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
For whatever reason, my dough didn't rise, and I ended up tossing out the dough and starting from scratch, but my second batch didn't really rise much either. I shrugged my shoulders and popped the rolls in the oven anyway, and they ended up puffing up nicely while cooking. So despite all my worries, they turned out perfectly! I didn't have any dried minced onion, so I put fresh minced onion inside the dough. I flash-fried some more fresh minced onion in very hot oil for a few seconds until it was golden and put this on top of the rolls before baking. The flash-fried onions were a flavorful addition. Great recipe! We had BBQ beef sandwiches on these rolls.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
We found this recipe to be very bland, which was surprising, given the variety of spices that went into it. My spices are all fresh, so it wasn't because of poor quality spices. To be fair, we didn't put the full amount of cayenne pepper in while cooking, as my 2-year-old was also going to be eating it, but I did put the container on the table and my husband and I added the extra cayenne pepper to our own plates. But this just made it spicier, not more flavorful. I'm disappointed that this wasn't to our liking, especially after all of the good reviews that this recipe received.

Naan

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
Fabulous! This was easy to make and got rave reviews from both my husband and my 2-year-old. I made these in our grill pan, as we don't have a bbq grill, and they came out just fine in the grill pan. I did brush them with the melted butter, but found that they cooked without sticking to my grill pan, so I'll be able to omit the butter and make this recipe for my in-laws, who are on a low-fat diet.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
This was a very tasty recipe! I added some walnuts to the butter/sugar mixture and cooked in a 9 x 12 pan. I made a cream cheese frosting to go on top, per my husband's request. My rolls didn't rise very much, but I think this was due to an error of my own. They were still yummy despite not having risen very much.
