Meatloaf With A Bite

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This recipe was good, but wasn't a home run with my family. My boyfriend liked it better than my 8-year old son - he said there wasn't enough flavour. I enjoyed it okay. I used oatmeal instead of the saltine crackers or tortilla chips as some others have suggested, and that may have been why it turned out bland. Perhaps more spices would have helped.

Chicken Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
My boyfriend loved this recipe, and he never comments on food. I thought it was good, and I especially liked the spinach.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
I'm giving this recipe three stars because we were a little over-ambitious with the 'shrooms. Less is more, and next time I'll stick to the quantity the recipe calls for. Anymore than that, and you end up with glop instead of soup!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This is such an easy recipe to make - who knew I could bake cheesecake! In fact, it's so good that I've stopped making it for family functions. I made one for the family get-together for my boyfriend's birthday, and his mom's cake sat, uneaten. Making this cake gets me in trouble!! Only for non-family functions from now on :) *UPDATED* I have made this recipe numerous times now, and every time I get rave reviews. One of the best ways I've prepared it, is to get caramel ice cream topping (a thick kind) and use it as 'glue' around the sides of the cheesecake. Then press Oreo cookie crumbs into the caramel. On the top, around the edge place Turtles chocolates, and then criss-cross caramel and chocolate sauce in the middle of the cheesecake. Mmmmmmmmm!!!

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
I used half butter, half evoo and added generous amounts of salt and pepper. The asparagus came out perfectly crispy-tender, just the way I like it. For an asparagus recipe, this one is good and easy to make. You need to keep your heat down though.

Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
This risotto is very good. My boyfriend is giving it 4 out of 5 stars because he 'hasn't tasted a 5-star risotto yet', but he said he'd have it again. I omitted the parsley, and parmesan cheese (I forgot), but the rest of the recipe was as written. It was very good! We had company over, and I didn't feel like I served sub-standard food. They all enjoyed it, and the pot of rice was basically gone.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
I made this spinach dip for Easter. Even though I had said I was brining the dip, two others also made a spinach dip!! This one got eaten, and people started stealing the bread from the other dips to use with my recipe! I omitted the water chestnuts (I felt that was a bit too 'different' for the crowd I was making it for) but made sure to add the leek soup as other reviewers had suggested. I made it the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight so that the flavours could mingle. I will certainly make this again!

Vegetable Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
This recipe was appreciated by my family sine they were getting tired of plain rice. I added red peppers, celery, onions, garlic, hot pepper flakes and 2 eggs. I substitued the peanut oil for olive since that's what I had on hand. So, our recipe was a variation, but still worked well.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
The jury's still out on this recipe, but I can see the potential, so I'm giving it 4 stars. I used 2% milk instead of the evaporated milk, and started with half of the recommended amount. After I started the recipe, I realized that I didn't have any flour! The milk, chicken stock and butter was simmering on the stove while I ran from neighbour to neighbour, asking for a bit of flour. Once I had found some, the mixture had probably been warming (and my son whisking) for about 5-7 minutes. As soon as I whisked in the flour, it thickened instantly. Perhaps that's the secret. I added more 2% milk afterwards to thin it out a bit. We added shredded cheddar and mozzarella mix. Some parmesan too. I would recommend adding some sort of cheese that has a bit of kick to it - i.e. pepper jack or sharp cheddar as the recipe recommends. I can see why the recipe calls for mustard, as it seems the real cheese (as opposed to the Kraft powdered variety) seems a bit bland. How sad but true. Next time I'll experiment with new sources of flavour to add to this recipe. Other than that, it was nice and creamy. Lots of sauce to go with the amount of pasta - you might want to make more pasta than the recipe calls for. I also should mention I cut this recipe in half.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Recipe is very good. A simple meal that is waiting for you when you come home. I'm always careful to cut down the time the cooker runs for though, or the chicken can be overdone - especially if it sits for a while before you get home. I think we cooked this on low for about 5 hours.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

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!

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.
