Old Settlers' Baked Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2011
The perfect baked bean recipe! The kids ate seconds and my husband loved it. This will be "the" one from now on. So easy to prepare. Like most, I substituted molasses for the white sugar. I skimped on the bacon (didn't have much on hand) and was also short a can of pork and beans but it was still terrific!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
This is one of the best salmon recipes I have had. My familyn isn't big on fish but they ate this one up! I let it marinate for 4-5 hours and did use the foil wrap method to keep the grill clean. This one's a keeper!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
This is possibly the best carrot cake recipe I have found to date. Moist and delicious, and the icing is great too. I tried Sam's carrot cake recipe and it was good but this had more "wow!" to it despite fewer ingredients. I did a few changes recommended by others: 3/4 c oil and 1/2 c applesauce, 1 cup each white and brown sugar, and 1 extra tsp cinnamon and a dash of cloves, nutmeg and cardamom ( which I love in anything with cinnamon in it also). I also had to use 1 c wholewheat flour because I ran out of all purpose, and it had great texture. I will use this as my go-to recipe from now on!

Unbelievably Good Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
I only used 1/2 can of condensed milk and it was plenty sweet for my very sweet tooth! I also added about 2 tbsp of grenadine to make it a pretty pink color. Everyone was raving about it!

Asian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
The flavor was awesome! Like another reviewer, I did it in the slow cooker as I wasn't coming home right after work today. It was on low for 11 hours and the meat was so tender it came apart in chunks with a fork piercing. Served it with rice and poured the extra liquid over top. I also added fresh grated ginger, and was glad I did.

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
I can't imagine a better rhubarb muffin recipe. They have wonderful texture, not too much oil, and great taste. The streusel really makes it. Follow recipe exactly (though I used milk with vinegar to replace buttermilk). No need to change anything!

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
I got rave reviews on this from my guests! It was still moist when served the next day and had great flavour. the spice level was perfect and made it better than the average cake. I made the following changes: only used 1 cup sugar ( it was plenty sweet, esp with ice cream and salted caramel sauce from this website). I also subbed ginger for the nutmeg, used 2 whole eggs instead of egg white, and subbed half the oil for applesauce. Next time I will try grating the pear, but I didn't mind the chunks either. A very versatile recipe! I think I will go have another piece now...

Quick Edamame Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
Great salad! Thanks to other reviewers I went easy on the oil, used less than 3 Tbsp and it seemed just right. Also used fresh garlic instead of powder, added about 1 tsp oregano and omitted parsley because I don't care for it. It is even better the next day!

Coconut-Lime Cheesecake with Mango Coulis

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
This recipe was incredible! I took it to a dietitian's potluck and received many compliments (yes we eat cheesecake too!) I substituted graham crumbs with 1 tsp ginger and the crust was great. The cheesecake isn't very high, but good for keeping portions moderate. I may or may not do the mango coulis next time, I liked it but the cheesecake is great on its own. I did follow another reviewer's suggestion to top with toasted coconut and slices of lime on each piece. It looked as good as it tasted!

Healthy Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
This will be my staple pumpkin recipe from now on. Like others have said it doesn't seem like a "healthy" recipe. The ginger does add a unique flavour - it makes you stop and think - what's different about this muffin? But it is not overwhelming and I wouldn't change it. I have used both fresh and dried cranberries - made it twice in the past week and a double batch the second time because it is such a great seasonal recipe- but I actually prefer the dried cranberries.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2013
Wow! I am amazed - A dish with quinoa that my husband said about: "you can make this again!" He didn't even notice there was quinoa until my son told him after! The flavour was incredible. I made it with ground chicken (forgot that it was not turkey I had on hand), and used Wyko's recipe for the sauce, which my husband said "made it", so use this instead of the one with the recipe: 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/4 c ketchup, 1 tbsp regular mustard, and a few drops of Worcestershire sauce. And I only used 3/4 of the hot sauce called for, and it definitely had enough zing and flavour. A keeper!

Easter Grass Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
I have finally found my go-to coleslaw with this recipe! My husband didn't like most of the others I tried but said this one's almost as good as his mom's! I don't always have all the ingredients but it's still always good! Try cranberries or oranges. Sometimes I cut back on the sugar and use partly artificial sweetener.

Zesty Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
This was an excellent choice for my staff potluck, lots of great reviews and very little left over! I was worried about the amount of cumin and oil based on other reviews but followed the recipe and found the flavour perfectly balanced. After sitting overnight it helped flavours meld better, but was a bit drier than I wanted so I gave it another squirt of lime juice and olive oil and it was fine. I added edamame which was a great addition. Next time will add avocado also. A keeper!

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2013
As far as lentil soups go, this was Wow! Much better than expected. Definitely add lemon juice, cilantro and sour cream instead of oil, as another reviewer suggested. It tasted rich, flavourful, and was hearty. I might up the chili a bit next time. I added an extra garlic clove and used Epicure no salt chicken bouillon, otherwise followed the recipe exactly.

Carrot, Potato, and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
This recipe is surprisingly good, despite the basic ingredients. I thought there wasn't enough spices, and so included about 1/2 tsp each thyme and basil, and it turned out great. I think following the recipe would have been just fine also. I used no salt epicure broth and 1 tsp salt as per recipe, which was plenty. I added some buffalo sausage that complimented the flavours well. Like many others we didn't bother blending it. My family loved it!

Baked Ham with Sweet Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
This was both easy and delicious! I had to add about 3 Tbsp water to the paste because it was so dry (I think my honey was a bit "old"). I scored the ham before cooking and added the glaze half hour before as per directions, basting once. I didn't use pineapple and cherries, it was plenty sweet enough as it was. They would look pretty but I was cooking for a bunch of men so that didn't matter as much. They loved it!

Scalloped Potatoes II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
I found my "keeper" scalloped potato recipe finally- but it wasn't the original recipe, it was 072705r's adaptation - it was perfect. It was thick, creamy, with great flavour- and all easy to make from scratch! made another recipe that used canned soup but am so glad I found this review instead.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
I made this without clam juice or old bay seasoning, and we loved it! I did add garlic cloves, about 2, as well as dill and a quick shake of Tabasco to add flavour. I included carrots and corn because I like a very hearty soup and used our local whitefish. A good basic recipe that adapts to your preferences well!
