Apple Chutney

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
My DH made this chutney as a side dish with some pork - the end result was really good although he did end up tinkering with it a bit in the end to better suit our taste. It was good and made a nice, big batch.

Creamy Apple Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
We doubled this recipe so that we would have some leftovers to take to work the next day and that worked out pretty well. The end result was marginally better than just plain oatmeal, but I wouldn't say the recipe is spectacular...but it is a good way to get a few more nutrients into your kids first thing in the morning.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
I made this dish the other night for dinner and while it seems very fancy, the dish is not at all difficult to pull off and would be nice served at a dinner party. We used a dry marsala and found the flavour to be a bit overwhelming, so if I were to make this dish again, I would reduce the amount of wine in the sauce. The only change I made was that I only had two tiny shallots left, so I used those and sub'd in regular chopped onion in place.

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
I made this dish last night for supper and it was ok. I halved the ingredients and it was more than enough to serve 4 people. The only change I made was to saute a small onion along with 2 chopped cloves of garlic along with the sausage. If I were to make this dish again, I would increase the amount of ricotta cheese as we found the flavour was lost amongst the other stronger flavours.

Lime Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I'm really glad I didn't follow the instructions for this recipe, otherwise it would have been a waste of good ingredients. I used about 1/4 cup of butter and a few Tbsp of olive oil and 5 cloves of chopped garlic. The end result was a greasy mess of chicken which didn't taste like anything but oil. We won't be making this again.

Ham and Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
I made this for dinner the other night and it was really good; but as always, I did change some things. First, I added a lot more onion than the recipe called for (probably 1 medium) and I added a large clove of minced garlic as well. I made the white sauce and added grated cheddar (1/2 cup), grated swiss (about 2/3 cup) and a good sprinkle of fresh nutmeg. Lastly, instead of using just cheese for the topping, I mixed more grated cheddar/swiss with some buttered Ritz crackers. We really enjoyed this dish and it heated up really well the next day for lunch.

Hearty Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
I made this for supper tonight and the end result was comfort food at its best. I made some changes, but primarily to the sauce. I added a grating of fresh nutmeg, a large clove of garlic (sweated with the onions), 1 tsp of dry mustard powder and about 1 cup of grated cheese (1/2 swiss and 1/2 cheddar). The only other change I made was to put a coating of butter crackers, butter and cheese on the casserole. I baked the dish for 25 minutes and let stand for nearly 10 minutes before eating. We really enjoyed this; it would be perfect using leftover ham.

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
I made these hamburger buns this afternoon in the hopes that I could serve them as a beef dip sandwich. The flavour of the buns was much like hamburger buns in that the flavour was pretty neutral, but we found that the texture was very heavy and dense compared to a traditional hamburger bun. Because the interior of the bun was so doughy, they didn't really work very well as a bun for a beef dip, but they would be fine as dinner rolls.

Six Threes Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
I made this ice cream to use up some fresh peaches I had on hand. I used this recipe because I'm pregnant and cannot consume raw eggs and this recipe fit the bill. When I was removing the ice cream from the ice cream maker I tasted it before transferring it to the freezer and was very happy with the flavour. Unfortunately, once the ice cream froze thoroughly, it was like a brick! Very difficult to scoop like ice cream and the texture was very flaky. So in the end, the flavour was really nice, but the texture and consistency were way off.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
My DH and I made these burgers for dinner tonight and the end result was pretty darn good, but we did make a few changes. First, we scaled the recipe to 4 servings. We also used minced shallot instead of onion and I sauteed the shallot with the garlic for a few minutes before adding to the turkey. Lastly, following the advice of another reviewer, we added 1/2 tsp seasoning salt, 1 Tbsp worcestershire, 1 Tbsp of soy sauce, 1 whole egg and about 1/4-1/3 cup bread crumbs to the turkey mixture; we also grilled the burgers instead of frying. The burgers ended up being very good and really moist but as my husband said...while they are good, they still would not replace his regular grilled burger. EDIT: I made these again and they turned out significantly better. This time I used ground chicken, about 1Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 small grated onion, 3 cloves garlic, 1 egg white and about 2 1/2 Tbsp of seasoned bread crumbs. We did grill them again - and they were definitely 5 stars!

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
My DH made these pancakes for breakfast this morning and we thought they were ok. The end result was a bit more of a doughy pancake than we're used to...but we did make some modifications. We only used 1 Tbsp of baking powder (2 is way too much IMHO) and we reduced the amount of chocolate chips based on other reviews. We may make these again, but will modify the recipe further to make for a bit of a thinner batter.

Apple Orchard Punch

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
This is really good punch. I made this for a dinner party and wanted something non-alcoholic; this was a really good choice.

Easy Apple-Carrot Coleslaw

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
I made this tonight as a side dish to go with chicken pot pie and it was pretty good. I did skip the first step of salting the cabbage though and just omitted salt from the dish entirely (salt draws out moisture from the cabbage and then if it sits too long, the dressing becomes watery). I halved the recipe as I was only cooking for 3 people and followed the recipe exactly with one exception; I added about 1 tbsp of honey to the dressing mixture. The end result was a very interesting tasting coleslaw and we will likely make it again.

Apple-Raisin French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
My DH made this for breakfast and the end result was pretty good, although we found it a tad on the sweet side (but we added maple syrup before tasting it). We also found that there is too much bread for the egg mixture, so we had to increase the egg/milk mixture. We may make this again, but probably not for awhile.

Leslie's Salty Grilled Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
We liked these a lot, but I think if we were to make them again, we would not poke holes in the foil. We did this, and the result was massive flare ups on our BBQ (as the butter melted and oozed out). Also, we did not add the Italian seasoning because we were out and we also reduced the amount of salt to about 1/2 tsp per potato. These were good and we will likely make them again.

Garlic and Cheese Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
I made this for a small dinner party last night and they were gone in a flash. I followed the recipe exactly except I did cut the ingredients in half as there were only 6 of us. The only thing I would change is that next time, I would not put the bread/cheese mixture so close to the broiler as the cheese starts to brown, but even though it's heated through, it's not quite melted. Thanks for a great/different recipe!

Ashley's Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
Well, my DH and I made this for dinner tonight. On the plus side, we enjoyed the super crispy coating that the panko made. But on the minus side, the chicken was pretty tasteless without the sauce; the breading measurements were WAY off and lastly the sauce was ridiculously gross, don't even waste your time with it (nor should you waste your time with the recipe in the member review). So all in all, the chicken was edible albeit, somewhat flavourless, so we probably won't make again.

Argentine Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
I made this dish tonight for my family and while we didn't *hate* it...we did not care for it at all (except for my DH who thought it was good and I'm still trying to figure out why). The flavour was completely bland...and the recipe should call for brown or green lentils as red cook down to quickly. Thanks for the idea...but we'll keep looking for sure.

Creamy Summer Crab Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
I had such high hopes for this dip. I made it with very short notice for a group of people coming to my house and was pretty disappointed in it. While the recipe makes a massive amount of dip (easily enough for 10 people IMHO), all we could taste was green onion. The flavour of the crab....everything in fact, was lost through the green onion. I may try this recipe again and will cut it in half and I will also cut the amount of green onion in half.

Plum and Ginger Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
My DH made this for dinner the other night and it was really good - but even better the next day. We cut the recipe in half, but used all the garlic, more fresh ginger than called for (probably 1 tsp or so) and only 1/4 cup of corn syrup (glad we did, or it would have been waaaay too sweet). The end result was tasty and healthy; we probably will turn to this recipe in future if we're looking for a chicken stir fry.
