Bubble 'n' Squeak

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
I enjoyed reading all the reviews. In my experience, Bubble and Squeak is a tried and true British recipe that utilizes any elements of a leftover roast dinner - what my English granny called 'fry up'. A fry up consisted of leftover meat from the Sunday roast, combined with leftover mashed potatoes or sliced boiled ones and any leftover veg. A generous pat of butter was melted in a black cast iron frying pan and all was heated through. Bubble and Squeak always has potatoes and cabbage added to the remnants of Sunday's roast. Lashings of Worcestershire sauce were added for flavour along with salt and pepper. Some fry ups were successful depending on the combination of ingredients available but, for me, Bubble and Squeak always seemed tasty.

Brussels Sprouts and Chestnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Sprouts and chestnuts are naturals together. Adding orange is a touch of genius. Delish recipe!

Easy Caramelized Onion Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
As most reviewers noted, this is a good basic recipe. The technique DOES need tweeking. Add more onions, less liquid and finish evaporation of liquid with lid off. I used garlic and added apple slices at the end of cooking process. They should soften, but not disintegrate. Use a firm apple,e.g., Granny Smith. If you want, you can add crumbled sage leaves to taste with appple slices. (Go light on sage, it's a strong herb.)

Chicken Gruyere with Sauteed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
This recipe is a good basic recipe and I found all the reviewers 'tweeks' interesting. I used a good dealcoholized white wine instead of regular. Pay a bit more if you substitute decalcoholized win; don't buy 'cooking' wine - it's super salty. There are a few German brands that are good subs. I cut back on the cheese used. Thanks for the recipe and the guidelines.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
My mother made a bland version of these ribs to please my Scottish father's tastebuds. The soya sauce was omitted and more vegetables added to the simmering water,e.g., onion, carrot, parsnip. Ribs were simmered in this liquid till tender but not falling off the bone and then were passed under the broiler briefly. A bit of worchestershire sauce was sometimes lightly brushed across the ribs before broiling. Great basic recipe for making all kinds of tasty variations. Tx.

Blissful Rosemary Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
What a great recipe. Flavours are wonderful and the sprig of rosemary is an addition that has real flair. Thanks for the tips on preventing the rosemary from blackening. I'm going to research any other recipes you have contributed, Single Dad chef. Kudos!

Vegetable Whip

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
This recipe of combined root veggies is French Canadian, Nova Scotian and probably a simple dish prepared by all frugal folks with only root vegetables in their cold cellar during the winter. Your version is great, Jill and you're right, everyone can find their own favourite combo. Thank you for submitting your recipe.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2005
This is a really delicious salmon fillet recipe that I scaled down to serve one person. The marinade is a tasty sweet and sour glaze that complements salmon beautifully. Also it's quick and easy. Great marinade/glaze for barbequed salmon, too. Thanks!

Bacon Wrapped Hamburgers

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
Great recipe, Jan. Filet mignon tastes wonderful wrapped in bacon. Why not a bacon wrap for burgers?

Broiled Sweet and Tangy Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2005
I'm going to make this fish recipe using all the suggestions offered by other members. Foremost, I'll use another fish. I find tilipia a very blah, mild fish - my taste, I know.

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005
Good recipe. For variation, use a low fat mayo-type dressing, omit curry and add a dollop of mango chutney. If you like poppy seeds add them. Nix on the fatty croissant - pita or wholewheat bread is best. I really enjoy reading reviews. I decide on using a recipe based on users' comments.

Shrimp Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
Yummy dip and adaptable, e.g., Asagio cheese can be used instead of Parmesan. It can also be made with Finnish Lappi cheese, a cheese that most lactose intolerant persons can handle. I found the other reviews very helpful - shrimp and crab are a tasty combo here.

French Tourtiere

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2004
Good recipe. I agree with the use of pork only and the spicing in this version. Every French Canadian, myself included knows the BEST recipe for tourtiere and it's their's! Part of my family Christmas is a friendly discussion around the dining table as to whose tourtiere is the most 'authentic'. For me, tourtiere and home-made chili sauce IS Christmas. I've never met a tourtiere I wouldn't sample!

Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2004
This cookie can be spicier, less bland with a few additions: finely chopped crystallized ginger, increased cinnamon. I added finely chopped pecans and didn't ice the cookies. They were gobbled up by all! I used 'sweet pie pumpkin'puree that I had frozen in one cup portions in the late fall. A recipe worth making.
