Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
Thank you Dash!!!! I'm from Nova Scotia and I CRAVE these things. This recipe is a great recipe for donair meat ~ the sauce is bang-on, as well. For the reviewers who may be unsure of what to do with the sauce and meat: 1) Fry a pita in a small amount of oil to soften it (I just put mine in the microwave for a few seconds ~ it's just to make the pita pliable to wrap around the fillings), fry the donair meat in same pan to warm it, and then fold the pita around the donair meat, sauce and chopped tomatoes and onions for toppings. (I've also had them with mozzarella cheese melted in them ~ mmmmmmmmm). 2) Meat and sauce make great oven-baked subs (same topping suggestions). 3) Donair Pizzas ~ sauce, meat and whatever toppings strike your fancy, mozzarella cheese. 4) The famous Donair Plate: fries topped with meat, sauce, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, mozzarella cheese and baked in the oven. (I order mine without the fries ~ personal preference). I can't believe donairs haven't really caught out outside eastern Canada ~ these are big business at the pizza shops here....I order donairs way more often than pizza ~ my 13-year-old has been an addict since he was old enough to pick off my plate. :-) Oh, and pizza corner rocks for donairs.

Quick Chinese-Style Vermicelli (Rice Noodles)

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
This is a great Asian-style noodle dish. I used to work at a Chinese Restaurant and the simplicity of this dish closely mirrors that style of cooking. If you're looking for a noodle recipe with a heavy or zesty sauce, French or Italian-style dishes are a better choice. That said.....I LOVE this dish! I used vermicelli instead of the rice noodles and doubled the garlic, soy sauce, and chili sauce. A very quick and simple dish. Thanks for posting Serena!

Peach Cobbler III

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2004
I'm giving this a 4-star rating even though my peaches didn't sink to the bottom and it didn't rise properly, because I'm thinking the problem may lie with my baking powder. When baked goods containing baking powder fail to rise, it's usually time to replace your baking powder. That said, the cobbler was delicious! My grandfather licked it right up!

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2005
We make these a lot ~ for breakfast, dinner, and late-night snacking. I add chopped onion and sometimes cut up pieces of bacon (yum). You can really play with the spices here ~ whatever appeals to you.

Mustard Sauce for Ham

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
Great sauce Laurie! I made it as written, except I substituted white vinegar for tarragon vinegar, because that's what we had here. Awesome on ham!

Goulash Supreme

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2005
This didn't last long at my house ~ the boys ate 2-3 helpings each. Pretty good stuff. :-) It's a lot like the goulash my Mom used to make with the exception of the garlic and chili powder. I followed other reviewer's suggestions and cooked the garlic and onions in with the ground beef (which I seasoned with a little pepper, salt, chili powder, and paprika while it was browning). Aside from that, I followed the directions. The macaroni cooked up perfectly in the mixture. Thanks a bunch Cheryle ~ this one's going into the regular rotation!

Nova Scotian Hodge Podge

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2004
YUM!!! My entire family loves this stuff. I'm from Nova Scotia and this is the big dish of the harvest ~ we use new potatoes, green beans, and yellow beans. Sometimes carrot, but, as a rule, usually the potaotes and beans. Thanks for posting this Vivian!

Ham and Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2005
This is great as a salad or a sandwich filling. If I'm using it as a salad, I don't put the ham mixture in the food processor - I simply chop the ingredients the old fashioned way. I like it a little chunkier. I also add about 1/4 c. diced onion and a dash of freshly ground pepper. I love this wrapped in lettuce leaves. Thanks Barrett!

Fairy Godmother Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2004
Loved this dish! I left out the water chestnuts because none of us care for them, and I used vermicelli, broken into small pieces instead of the thin egg noodles. This recipe is going to be part of my regular rotation for sure.

Cajun Spiced Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
This chicken TASTED great but appearance-wise it could use a little help. It didn't brown up in the oven and the coating still had a very "floury" look to it. I will be making it again but I think I'll either drizzle it with olive oil before baking in the oven, or just fry it in oil or butter on the stove. I like the fact that the dish is so easy and quick to prepare but it needs a bit of tweaking.

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
We had these along with Richard's Breakfast Scramble (a fave of mine from this site) for brunch today. I didn't have kosher salt so I subbed about 1 1/2 tsp table salt. Next time I'll probablt pop the potatoes back in the oven for about 5 minutes to melt the cheese because it didn't melt all that great on it's own. Thanks for the great recipe Yapodaca.

Chili Chicken Stew

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Soup, stew, who cares? What matters is this soup/stew rocks. My roommate was saying "five stars" after every third bite. I used canned corn and frozen green beans for the veggies, doubled the chili powder, and reduced the chicken broth to 1 can, as per previous reviews. Thank you Corwynn ~ you never disappoint me. :-)

Soy and Garlic Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
We loved this chicken recipe. The soy is strong so if soy isn't your favorite, you may want to pass on this. I served the chicken with hot buttered noodles and steamed broccoli. Yum. Thanks Tracy!

Richard's Breakfast Scramble

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2004
Great breakfast Heather! Simple ingredients and easy to throw together. I made this for The Boy for breakfast this morning, along with toast, before sending him off to school for the day. He LOVES it.....says it's the best breakfast he's ever had ~ then told me to rate this one a five-star! High praise indeed coming from Mr. Doesn't-Wanna-Eat-Anything-But-Chicken-Noodle-Soup.

German Lasagna

Loved this recipe! The only thing I changed was to use no-boil noodles instead of regular lasagna noodles (as suggested by a previous review).

Butterscotch Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
Great recipe Debbie! I have a tried and true recipe for Butterscotch Pie, passed down from my great-grandmother but I wanted to try this one because it uses cornstarch (mine uses lots of flour). The taste, texture, and color are fantastic. However, my meringue seperated from the filling, as stated by previous reviewers. I made sure to seal the meringue right to the edges of the pie crust but the meringue still slides right off the pie when I slice it. But for that, I would have gladly given this a 5-star rating. It tastes divine.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2004
If simple recipes like this weren't ever posted, my roomate wouldn't know how to feed herself. Plus, its a basic recipe....I think it's a great idea to post it. I've been making these forever ~ just taught The Boy how to make them too. My variation is to put thinly sliced tomatoes and finely chopped onions, sprinkled with salt and pepper, in between two layers of cheddar cheese. YUM. Mozzarella works well like this too. Many thanks, Sara, for posting this old favorite.
