Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
Best. Ever. Fudge. Creamy consistency, decadent tasting, easy to make. I will be putting this, chopped up, into a chocolate cake for a customer of mine. YUM! Thanks for sharing!

Plum Jam

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
Excellent recipe! I, too, had extremely sour plums (though perfectly ripe).... end of shelf-life, presumably. I ran a cup short of plums, so I added enough chopped apple to make the full 4.5 cups. Also added a smidgen more water to the pot, and a tsp. of cinnamon for good measure. Lovely colour, and jelled well. Would definitely make this recipe again, with plums only, when they come on sale again.

Eastern Rice Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
This is excellent! So fresh and yummy tasting. I reduced the oil a bit, and the soya sauce could stand to be increased slightly, but obviously this is to my taste. I paired it with Fabulous Beef Tenderloin from this site, and it was a wonderful summer meal. Thanks for sharing!

No Bake Double Good Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
This sounded delicious, but I was missing a lot of the ingredients, so I made the following substitutions: maple creme cookies instead of Oreos; vanilla pudding powder instead of the peanut butter and confectioner's sugar; whipping cream instead of the Cool Whip. I also added caramel sauce to hold the cookie base together a bit better..... yum! The whole family enjoyed this variation. I look forward to trying this recipe as written, too. Play around with this recipe to your taste - I am sure you will enjoy it!

Cream Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This cake tastes light and delicious... a very nice, scratch white cake recipe. I found it a little crumbly, so would not make it to be cut in to shapes for a birthday cake... but as a whole, it rises nicely (with 1/4tsp more baking powder,1/4 tsp less salt, 3 Tbsp less flour, and lots of whipping of the eggs). I made a single recipe, and got 12 mediumm cupcakes and 12 mini cupcakes out of it. I will keep looking for other white cake recipes to compare to, but this is a really good start!

Mary Wynne's Crabapple Jelly

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
I think the success of this recipe must depend on how acidic your crabapples are. Mine were large and fairly sweet as far as crabapples go (I have no idea what variety they were, though)... so it did not jell. I had to add a box of Certo lite to make it jell. Once this was done, the flavour was great and the colour was so pretty.... I double-strained the juice, so I did not end up with a "weird consistency" like some reviewers said. Also, I needed a generous 8 cups of apples to get 3 cups of juice - not the four cups promised in the recipe. All-in-all, I would say that this recipe shows promise, but watch your "sour factor" in your apples - make sure it is high.

Apple Stuff

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
Yummy! This is great. Very simple. I substituted brown sugar for the white, and low-fat jello for the regular, and it turned out fine. This tastes like a short bread-based strawberry/jello square that my mom used to make at Christmas time years ago. Thanks for sharing - this is terrific!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
Yummy! These muffins are a mild banana muffin alternative for those who aren't crazy about BIG banana taste, but need to use up old bananas - great for "smushy banana" haters like my four-year old! ;o) Very good. Not sure where the "healthy" part of these muffins comes in, besides the banana. There seems to be a lot of sugar, and no whole grain stuff. The only advantage is the small amount of butter.... so I substituted 1c. w/w flour for white. These are great topped with a few choc. chips for a special treat. Thanks for the recipe! These will become a fav in our house, especially for after-school snacks.

Sauerkraut on Bread Dough

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
Let me qualify my review by first saying this: I did not use the dough part of this recipe, I used my own. That being said, this was a pretty good recipe. It tastes like a Reuben sandwich without the corned beef. There was a bit too much caraway seed for my taste, and I would've put the bacon on top to get more crispy as it baked. My husband also suggested frying the sauerkraut to take the edge off of it - too much vinegar taste, I guess. Overall though, I would say it was pretty good! And, the longer I sit here munching, the more the flavour is growing on me! Time to stop eating! ;o) I would make this again with a few minor modifications.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
WOW! What else can I say? This was over the top... very yummy, and such a delicate flavour! The dijon was not overpowering, like I had feared it would be. I am not a salmon-lover, normally, but decided to try it to add variety to our diet. This was definitely a good way to go! The only change I would make would be to halve the sauce ingredients... we had way too much, but used up all the crumbs. I also added sea salt to the crumb mixture as opposed to seasoning afterwards. Thanks so much for a terrific recipe, Arnie!

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2006
Easy to make, good results. This is not a "flashy" marinade... no particular flavour stands out, except maybe a bit too much "sour".... too much vinegar or lemon, maybe? All in all pretty good.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2006
The perfect last-minute marinade! Very yummy. I substituted peanut oil and pickled ginger for the sesame oil and fresh ginger.... no problems. Great taste, fast and easy to prepare... and no leftovers, even with two toddlers! Thanks for a great recipe!

Cream Cheese Bars I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
Very yummy, very easy! I used a Devil's Food cake mix, and sprinkled chopped chocolate chips over the cream cheese mixture.... very rich, but oh so good! I refrigerated the squares to make cutting easier. Thanks for a wonderful recipe, Charlene!

Delicious Pineapple Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
The taste was great if you're looking for a plain, cakey muffin -- it definitely wasn't fruity enough. My fruit-hating husband said - "These are great, you can eat fruit and not even taste it!" Goes to show how much pineapple flavour there actually was!! I also found these muffins very dry, in spite of adding the crushed pineapple right into the batter. Mind you, I was short 3 oz. of pineapple, but the muffins were such that 3 extra oz. would not have helped! The muffins stuck to the papers terribly. I may try these again with more pineapple and less cooking time, but I am not too hopeful.....

Family Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
Great kid-friendly taste, and easy to make, to boot! Can eliminate the water chestnuts if you don't have them... celery (which is also called for) is often a substitute for water chestnuts.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2005
Excellent cookies! Easy to make, taste great. I brought these cookies along with two-bite brownies to a ladies get-together, and they were devoured... and the brownies left lonely on the dish. THAT is the sign of a GOOD cookie! ;oD These are not terribly pumpkin-y, btw, for those who are not pumpkin fans. They are akin to a spice cookie, with chocolate added for good measure. Very substantial.

Pumpkin Chocolate Dessert Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2003
YUMMY! This is a wonderfully moist, rich cake.... mmm-mmm! I used evaporated milk as a cheap substitute for the heavy cream, and margarine for butter - it turned out wonderful and got rave reviews! I would recommend sifting your icing sugar before adding it to the recipe for the icing, as you will get lumpy icing otherwise. Thanks for a great recipe, Sara - I will definitely make this again!

Emily's Famous Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2003
YUMMY! Terrific recipe... subtle flavours, and a great way to get your greens with your 'taters. My 1 yr. old loved it, too, though he had trouble chewing the spinach (too much like lettuce for a little guy like him!). This is not "spinach-y" tasting - it is perfect! Next time I will try to have feta around to add to it, as well. Thanks for sharing, Emily!

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2003
YUMMY! This is a wonderfully flavourful soup that fills your house with the scent of a fine Italian restaurant! I have cooked this both the regular way and by slow cooker, and have had great success for both. For slow-cooker fans: scramble-fry ground beef, then add all ingredients to crock-pot except for kidney beans and pasta. Cook for 4-6 hours on high (or 8-10 on low, your preference). Add the kidney beans and pasta during the last 15 minutes of cooking. If you intend to keep/freeze leftovers, cook the pasta separately and add it to each soup bowl... this will prevent liquid absorption and smushy pasta. I found that macaroni also works well if you can't find ditalini in your grocery store. I reduced the amount of garlic to 5-6 large cloves, minced (for a 10-serving recipe), and we did not lack for garlic flavour! Thanks so much for a first-class recipe, Ivan!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
YUMMY! This is a terrific recipe which needs no modification to taste GREAT! I served this with a rice casserole (soya-sauce based), carrots and a green salad with Japanese dressing from Jean Pare's "Weekend Cooking" cookbook. It was a hit! Thanks for a great recipe!
