Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
As my generation used to say "It's a blast." Simple to make. I only changed the order of ingredients---added the chocolate syrup and Nestlé's instant Espresso granules to really warm water so the syrup mixed easily when stirred by hand. A new summertime favourite.

Bacon and Date Appetizer

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
I can't believe these have become popular once more! They were the absolute high end cocktail party fave's during the early '50's and would be the first to disappear. I prefer to use low sodium bacon as it truly compliments the flavour of the dates

Garlicky Appetizer Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Sounds a lot like Shrimp Scampi which was so popular during the '5o's. For those who need a shortcut in time and effort, use a good quality Italian salad dressing(adding extra garlic is recommended)and marinate at least 1/2 hr then place under broiler for about 2 mins each side. During last 2 mins brush with extra marinade. if using fresh shrimp broil on both sides til dark pink.Bon appetite!

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This is a long time family standard. The slight change in my recipe is the addition and mix of brown sugar (1/3 cup) to a 1 cup white sugar/flour mix plus a small (1/8 tsp) of nutmeg. I add the nutmeg only to the sugar/flour mix that is sprinkled over the rhubarb. The brown sugar makes the rhubarb less tart but does not overpower it with sweetness and the nutmeg is a personal flavour taste.

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
I think my recipe is much better---like the fish and chips from shops in Canada and England.Do you think they use beer?Hardly.Not cost efficient.Dredge slightly moist(not wet)fish with a LITTLE flour that is lightly salted,shake off any extra flour,allow flour to dry.When ready to deep fry make up the batter to your favourite "regular old fashioned" pancake mix,dip fish into batter,let any excess drip off then plunge coated fish into sizzling oil(mix 1/2 corn 1/2 lard). When ready it will float to top, puffy,golden and hot.

My Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
For those who are allergic to msg like myself substitute dehydrated onions and low salt beef broth or low salt beef powder for onion soup mix and adjust seasoning to personal taste.

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
For those concerned about health ingredients such as garlic salt, grated cheese, regular ground beef or refried beans substitute garlic powder, grated low fat cheese,low fat refried beans and ground chicken, all available at most leading grocery stores. Corn can be omitted. Brush tops with canola oil, salt free marg or salt free butter. Before serving top with fat free sour cream. All it takes is a little effort and imagination to make what was old new again, and it tastes just as good.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Great to find a recipe that doesn't call for canned soup!I added some poultry season and savoury because of a family preference and did a wash of egg white and water on the top crust. Dee-lish!

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
For those who are health conscious (and who shouldn't be) instead of dipping in oil place tortillas on damp paper tpwel, place in micro on high for 10 sec's. For a softer tortilla top, LIGHTLY brush with canola (a healthier oil) and proceed as directed in recipe

Turkey Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
We had turkey last week and I froze enough for a pie, checked this one out but it sounds a little too anaemic so I will add some lightly cooked celery, onion, poultry seasoning, white pepper,and a dash of sage, marjoram and thyme, canned gravy(no msg like canned soup)then brush the top crust with egg white and water for that lovely browned finish.

Orange Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
For those who prefer a more authentic Asian flavour consider adding scallions (green onions) cut on the bias,snow peas, garlic, and the aromatic Chinese five spice cinnamon,star anise fennel,cloves,ginger,licorice,szechuan peppercorn and white pepper) which can be found in most grocery stores. Five Spices can be potent so I recommend starting lightly ,tasting as you mix and adding more if necessary.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
Sounds like a fritatta to me.I have onelike it many times. For my ingredients I omit the spinach but add mushrooms add precooked bacon bits (conveniently available in a package) medium salsa which helps the egg mixture to remain moist and grated 4 cheese mixture, some added in and the rest on top to broil for two minutes just before serving.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
At the risk of sounding like a know it all I should like to pass along a few hints about salt content on this recipe. Dry onion soup is high in salt and also contains MSG another salt/flavour enhancer. Better to use either a sliced fresh onion or 1T of dehydrated onions and a cup of low sodium beef broth. Soy sauce is another source of high sodium; the alternative is low salt soy sauce. For a crust, roll the tenderloin in salt free crackers and potato flakes mixed with herbs de provence (basil,parsley,marjoram,chevril and oregano) or herbs of your choice. For those who want that extra kick of salt add it to your own serving at the table.

Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I have prepared this staple and it is always well received but I use canned chopped tomatoes not fresh.Follow the directions in the recipe,substituting 1 large can of chopped tom's for fresh; do not add dressing. Allow the pasta salad to stand overnight (or about 4 hours) in the 'fridge to absorb flavours and moisture from the canned tom's. An hour before serving,add bottled dressing,tasting as you pour and stir(as some commercial dressing is saltier and thcker than others I add a touch of fresh lemon juice to the contents). Add Parmesan or Romano cheese, stir and serve.

Rainbow Pasta Salad II

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
This has been a standby for more years than I care to remember but I never add the Italian dressing (to which I have added some lemon juice because the commercial brands too sweet) until an hour before serving. I have found that the pasta takes up most of the liquid when left for any length of time and I always double check for flavour because tomatoes seem to need more salt. I like it a tad spicy so again before serving I add freshly ground black pepper and sprinkle on grated Romano cheese. Stir and serve

Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
As others have written this is a good basic recipe and like them I also have added extra ingredients. To the cooked beef and onions I add low sodium taco seasoning,chopped green peppers,extra cumin, garlic and spicy chili powder. I add mashed, bottled jalapenos to regular enchilada sauce,warm the flour tortilla shells wrapped in film for 30 seconds in the micro. I oil a casserole with 1tbsp canola oil,then some enchilada sauce,add enchiladas.(I have found adding only sauce can still make enchiladas stick) After 10 mins in a 375 oven,liberally top with a 3 cheese medley (jalapeno,cheddar, mozzarella,)return to oven for 10 mins. Let stand for a few mins then serve with sour cream etc.

Crab Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
I did not care for this recipe. This was a 4F selection; flavourless,flawed,fishy and forgetable. What is"medium" when it comes to casserole size? The end result was watery even after an hour in a new oven and as for taste? It got lost somewhere in the eggs and milk even with extra seasonings, 3 cheeses instead of one, Romano instead of Parmesan and Caesar flavoured croutons. I'm glad it was served only to my husband and me.

Green Chili Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
This recipe sounds great and I would like to add it to my list of easy casserole but are there any recipes like this one that DON'T call for a commercial soup? Many of the name brands contain a heavy dose of salt and in addition, MSG, hydrolized protein or autolysed yeast, (all the same thing) are added making any prepared food high in sodium content and for some of us a serious health hazard.
