Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2014
This make a HUGE pot of soup! It is delicious and I wish mine had more cabbage in it - the biggest head I could find was still on the small side. I used fresh green beans and doubled the beef broth, added Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, hot sauce and pepper flakes - I like flavor. I made another pot and changed the veggies slightly to include cauliflower which I had on hand and saved a copy on here. I add turkey meatballs for meal replacements. This will be my new winter work lunch, it will allow me to save money and lose weight, win-win! If you decide to change the vegetables around and want to preserve the weight loss property, be very aware to avoid any starchy vegetables and limit vegetables that are high in sugar. I cooked mine about an hour, anymore than that and veggies will be too soft as they keep cooking until they cool and may cook a bit again when you warm up the soup.

Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2014
Tried it as close to instructions as possible and decided to tailor to our taste on the second batch. I added 1.5 lbs of meat, and seasoned it with Montreal Steak spice and Worcestershire sauce at least an hour before browning it. I cut half a pound of bacon in squares and cooked in a large sauce pan, removed the bacon and saved about 30ml of fat in the pan instead of the vegetable oil and cooked the rest of the meat in the same pan. Once the small sirloin cubes were browned and ground meat, garlic and onions were cooked, I dumped it all in a crock pot for a nice long 8hrs of slow cooking, we ate the next day for a deeper flavor. I used a Guinness, espresso beans to make the coffee, 2 habaneros for the peppers, wishing I would have had some chipotles on hand. Only one can of beans is enough for us. What you get is that sweet meaty chili and then the heat builds up. Heat lovers will want more fire.

Waffles II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Delicious basic waffles recipe, not bitter or anything. I tried it as-is to find out what I was dealing with. Make sure to spray your waffle iron even if it is non-stick. For the subsequent waffles I added half a cup of sugar and bit of vanilla. I served with cut fruits: mango, pineapple and bananas (shredded coconut is also delicious with this combination). A sprinkle of powder sugar and maple syrup helps crown this beautiful treat.

Golden Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
For a quick fix, not many ingredients recipe, this was perfect! I didn't even have fresh mushrooms and used a can instead. I browned the chops in the pan quickly, it saved me 20 minutes in the oven. I even had a surprise guest that night -hubby's coworker I never met!- and he cleaned his plate! I was really relieved. I would use maybe a little more seasoning next time, or brown the onions too, but this was otherwise perfect for a quick, effortless fix. I will make it again.

Syrian Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
This is a keeper, even my husband who does not like bread told me he liked this one. I served it with roasted garlic in olive oil. I tried different shapes, a barely stretch mini loaf worked best for me. I find that using bread flour gives better results.

Awesomely Easy Sesame Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This was very good, quick and really easy. I used a bunch of thin asparagus and followed the instructions, worked perfect: result was green and crunchy. I used half the sesame seeds (regular ones) as the rest seemed to stay in the pan. I think a bit of sesame oil would help next time for better flavor.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2007
WONDERFUL! A family favorite. I am impressed with how easy and tasty this recipe was. I made this for a guest that is quite a picky gourmet and she loved it. I used a tbs of minced garlic to save time and only red tomatoes, saving a few for the salad. I served the chops next to a mixed greens salad with fresh tomato and cucumber. I also used feta with herbs and tomato, will try one with sun dried tomato next time. I sometimes use a can of diced and seasoned tomato if I don’t have fresh ones on hand. This is also very good with chicken, I do it at least once a month!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
This is just the simplest and quickest cookie fix ever! We love home made cookies and this saves me alot of trouble when I don't feel like mesuring too much. I use butter flavored Crisco for crispy/chewy cookies (more volume too) and the Swiss Chocolate cake mix is our big winner for double chocolate cookies. I love to add a cup of pecans (or other nuts) as well. A family favorite!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Excellent bread pudding base. I used an egg bread that was too dry to eat, some raisins and a quarter cup of chocolate chips. Will make it with brown sugar next time.

White Russian Tiramisu

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
Love it Love it Love it! Even my husband keeps asking when I will make the next one! Being french canadian, we love brandy in coffee so I added a little shot of brandy with the kahlua/coffee mixture for dipping. I also dip a little longer for stronger taste. Yum!

Ham with Pineapple

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
Simple and does the job. I used pineapple juice (we do not buy thy syrup kind) and replaced the brown sugar with a good quantity of maple syrup, like we do in Quebec where I grew up. I also added a quarter of an onion in the pan for added flavor and covered the ham losely with foil for the first 90 minutes. Baked until meat reached 140F, basting frequently after the first 90 mins. Yummy!!

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2005
I tried this at my very first attempt to make fudge. PERFECT! I took the time to read the reviews and it helped me understand what I was doing. Everybody raved about this fudge and asked me how to do it. Note: Wait for a full boil before you start the 7 minutes timer. I did not stir at all while the sugar was boiling.

Slow Cooker Apple-Scented Venison Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
This recipe was simple and perfect for our needs. Even tho I tought it smelled funny when I first opened the crockpot, the meat was tender, juicy and tasty. I used one McIntosh apple, however next time I would use 2 of them - I love the apple bite and since they mush up, there is no chunks or need to remove them. I served it along with roasted garlic mashed potato.
