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!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Awesome seasoning. We'll surely make it again! I LOVE that you can get a taco seasoning without all the additives and other garbage that they put into packaged foods. My ONLY adjustment to this recipe the next time will be to cut down on the cumin. Thank you for the recipe! *UPDATE* We're putting this on popcorn tonight! As I'm an avid 'all-natural' mom, my son gets excited when he gets to have favoured snacks. No dill-pickle chips in this household! But taco-popcorn? Bring it on!

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!

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.

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!

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. . .

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!!

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.

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.

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!!!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
EXCELLENT flavour. My husband made this in the cast iron skillet and it was really yummy. It came out a bit flat - but I think that was operator error. Might have to investigate with another batch ;)

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
This was sooooo good! It was ready and waiting for me when I got home from work and I have to say that the beef was so incredibly tender. My husband said it was very easy to make, so all you ladies out there - give this one to the men to make and take the night off from cooking!

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Awesome recipe! I will use this one again and again. I live in pizza town, and to have the economy tank and still get to have pizza is a godsend! Maybe not as good as the Italian restarants in the woodburning ovens, but still yummy! Very easy - try it! Mmmmmmmm. . .

Almond-Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
O-M-G. . . that's all I can say! I must have REALLY been in the mood for this dish because it was incredible. My husband made it for me along with mashed-potatoes with wasabi and it was TO DIE FOR!! He followed the recipe exactly, except for cutting the parmasan in half.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
We're actually rating these 4 1/2 stars. We doubled the pumpkin and spices, and used brown sugar but other than that, everything stayed the same. Great flavour!

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.

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!

Crispy Baked Chicken

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.
