Smoky Chicken Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
This is one of the FIRST times that my mother-in-law ate one of my dishes and raved about it. Everyone hovered around the table, afraid to try it thinking that it was a crabmeat dish (they don't eat seafood), but once they found out it was chicken, they dived in. I have to say that the smoked almonds are pretty clever! They add a distinctive flavour and texture that is refreshingly unique. A glorified chicken salad that would be wonderful on a toasted multigrain bread too!

Easy Texas Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Yummy! This chili was spicy :) Maybe too spicy for my 11-year old though. We used half ground beef, and half ground chicken, and substituted kidney beans. I also added some cocoa powder as other recipes call for this ingredient and I was intrigued. My husband raved about the leftovers the next day. And it IS very easy - just like the name says. Enjoy!

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Good cornbread - maybe a bit light on the 'sweet' part. Also, although the sour cream was a neat idea, I'm not sure that it added an advantage that was worth the extra fat and calories. I may try another recipe that calls for creamed corn next time. Thank you for the recipe!

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Very good! I like my food salty, and it was just right for me, but others may want to cut the salt down a bit. Probably one tsp would be sufficient. Also, the cooking time is longer than what you need, and we used 1" thick pork chops! We will certainly make again. Yum!

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I've made this recipe twice now and it's fabulous! I double the zest to add extra lemoniness (is that a word??), and also poked holes in the cake so that the glaze would soak in. I also subbed butter for the shortening, used half whole wheat flour and used poppy seeds instead of walnuts. I DID try it with walnuts once, and it wasn't as good as with the poppy seeds - plus only white flour isn't as good as the half whole-wheat. Maybe both walnuts and poppy seeds would be nice? Sooooo good with a cup of warm tea in the evening once your kitchen's all clean!!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Wow. . . who knew that brussel sprouts could be eaten without making a crazy face? I am NOT a brussel sprouts liker, but this recipe really does take out the bitterness. It's a keeper!

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Yum, yum. REALLY good! No, you don't need all the extra bacon grease (we're active health nuts and would NOT do this on a regular basis) but once in a while won't kill you. Leave ALL the drippings in - you'll like it much better! Just don't eat it all the time. . .

Best Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
Okay - here's the thing. These beans are AWESOME! Really yummy. Now, no one cringe out there, but we left ALL the bacon grease in. Yup. I know, I know, it's nuts! But we just went for it to try it, and see what happened. I honestly don't think it would have been as good if we had only put in some for "flavouring". And in case anyone's interested out there, I'm an extreme heath nut, and this would NOT be something I'd do on a weekly, or even bi-annual basis! But once or twice a year won't kill you. . . so try it!

Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
These were good and pretty easy. My only complaint is that we had way too much stuffing, even though we used extra mushrooms and they were BIG! We wanted to use the leftover stuffing for breakfast with scrambled eggs (which probably would have been great) but forgot. The mushroom caps were yummy, but pretty juicy - you had to lean over to eat them, or risk getting juice on your shirt. Something to keep in mind if making for a family get-together.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
My boyfriend LOVES banana bread, so my son and I made him one for Valentine's Day. I didn't change anything from this recipe, but wished that I would have added a cinnamon sugar or brown sugar topping to give it a kick. Very simple. I'd actually give it 4 1/2 stars if I could. Almost perfect!!

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
VERY good soup, and very easy! I toasted the french bread under the broiler and dropped them into the soup bowls afterwards and it was still fantastic. We cut down on the cheese and only used the provolone, and subbed out 1/4 cup of the butter for 2 tbsps extra olive oil. Next time I'll cut the oil down to allow the onions to brown as others have suggested. There was too much grease for anything to brown!! But still a very yummy soup.

Italian Nutthouse Broiled Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
These tomatoes were very good! We even made it with 'shaker' parmesan and my boyfriend accidentally bought ground oregano and they were still good. Will try them next time with fresh parm and oregano. Yum!

Tomato Dill Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because it is incredibly simple (my 10-year old made it) and it has remarkable flavour. No more canned tomato soup to have with grilled cheese! I made it exactly as the recipe said, and it was brilliant.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
This recipe was disappointingly bland. It needs some sort of a kick, although I did leave out the cumin. I'm just not crazy about that spice. It should have been replaced with something else. Maybe some black olives would add some zip?

Easy Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Very tasty. It does make quite a bit of rice though, so either halve the recipe, or invite the neighbours! My 10-year old son thought that added corn niblets might be a nice added touch and I think I agree. We'll try that the next time.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
We subbed in apple sauce in place of the sugar, and used half whole wheat flour. It still makes a good muffin, but they're not as light and fluffy, and the muffin sticks to the wrapper. I want to try again, using half sugar, and half applesauce and see what happens. The taste was great! I can't discount this recipe for my own substitutions that didn't necessarily turn out as expected.

Bryan's Spicy Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I'm giving this recipe three stars, because I feel it has great potential, but the spices were not to my liking. I don't often (read: ever) use cumin or cardamom, and they were a bit strong for me. I plan on trying this recipe again, omitting these spices. It's super-cheap to make, and is packed with great nutrients. I think I'd leave everything else alone!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I will forever be plagued with making these dang pancakes! My boyfriend loves them, and whines for me to make them constantly! We've tried whole wheat flour and blueberry variations, and they turn out just as well. I always omit the added sugar and REAL maple syrup is a must!! **UPDATED** I'm on about batch 100 of these pancakes and I thought I'd add to my review. When making these, sometimes we use half whole wheat and half white flour. We cook in a cast iron skillet on medium to medium-low heat (don't have your heat too high!) and add a thin layer of vegetable oil before each batch. When the topside of the pancake becomes dull and forms air-bubbles, that's when you flip them. If your pancake is too dark when this happens, turn down your heat. We freeze leftovers in packs of four (they break apart easily, so no need to separate with anything), and pop them in the toaster in the mornings before school. This recipe is now our 'always' pancake recipe. Enjoy!
