LOVE this recipe! I cut down on the balsamic vinegar a bit and it works out great for us.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2005
Easy potroast! I use garlic in mine (cut holes and place a bit of garlic in them every inch or closer) and I add root veggies and mushrooms in the pot. We just love opening the door after a day at work and get that wonderful home cooked meal smell that says "welcome home, dinner is ready!" :)

Chicken Cordon Bleu I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
This is very easy to make. I place the chiken breasts in ziploc type bags to pound them down, it avoids a mess and the resuts are nicer with the meat being between plastic sheets anyway. I also use oregano instead of salt (plenty of salt in the ham), and brown the rolls in the pan instead of using breading for a lighter results. A success every time, they don't last long.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
I made this for my mom's birthday and she was REALLY pleased! I had to make a second batch because they were gone within an hour. I used regular FAST acting dry yeast in the machine and it worked just fine. I let it raise more then I was supposed to, and waited 30 minutes with the dough on the counter before I rolled it. When ready to roll, I set my oven to 200F and shut it off when it reached the correct temp. Then I left my rolls sitting in the oven (covered with a damp cloth) next to a bowl of water until they touched each other. Pulled them out, cranked it up to 400F for the actual baking time. Mine were ready in 12 minutes. I added an extra ounce of cream cheese for the second batch of icing. Yum! This is a keeper! Notes: place the “ends” at the bottom of the pan. Also, you can spread the icing almost immediately as it does not melt as much as the commercial stuff. The 9x13 dish would have been too small, I use one size bigger and sprayed it with butter flavored non-stick spray, and I had no problems removing the buns.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
This is just *excellent*!! My Boyfriend who did not like wine got addicted to this! I double the liquids (marsala and sherry) for more sauce, the original quantity will leave any "sauce type" guest on their appetite. I also sprinkle oregano in the pan since it doesn't stick to the chicken very well. Délicieux!
