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.

Fettuccini Carbonara

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2007
My DH and I made this for supper last night, and the end result was pretty good, but we did change the recipe quite a bit; here is what we did. We were only cooking for 3 people, so we cut the recipe in half for starters (using only 1/2 lb of linguini). We cut the bacon into small pieces and browned; about halfway through the browning process, we added a half a large onion, diced (it could have used more though). Once the onion was cooked and a bit caramelized, we added 1 clove of garlic, minced (should have used 2 cloves). We cooked that together just until the garlic was fragrant and meanwhile we cooked the pasta. In a small bowl, we whisked together 2 eggs, 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup whole milk (we didn't have any cream on hand), 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg and pepper. Once the pasta was done cooking, we added it to the pan with the bacon and onions, piled it up high and dumped the egg mixture on top. Working quickly we folded the egg mixture into the pasta so as not to cook the eggs. Once thoroughly mixed, we removed it from the heat, tossed in some fresh flat leaf parsley and ate it (topped with more fresh parmesan and pepper). It was very tasty and we will make it again (with my suggestions) for sure.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
I made this drink this afternoon as a treat for my DH and I and we liked it a lot. Unfortunately, my condensed milk had solidified, so it was a bit harder to get it mixed into the hot coffee, but the end result was really good.

Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
This was sooo delicious. I added cooked leftover turkey instead of chicken, but I bet it would be even better with the chicken. I didn't have any pearl onions, so I added some baby potatoes instead. Next time I might think about adding some leek as well. Absolutely delish!!! EDIT - added the leek and it didn't add much to do the dish. I use 4 chicken breasts and this is enough.

Beef Peach Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
My DH made this for dinner over the weekend and we thought it was a little weird. The meatloaf wasn't bad - and the peaches weren't bad....but the combination of the two ingredients together didn't jive with our tastes; so some people might like it, it's not for us.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
My DH made this french toast for breakfast this morning and it was very good. He followed the recipe exactly, but we scaled it to 8 servings (which made 5 slices of french toast using regular whole grain bread). The only slight modification he made was to add a bit of nutmeg, and it was delicious with this addition. In the end, we both agree that the only way to serve this french toast is with fresh strawberries, whipped cream and real maple syrup...Yummy!!!

Mini Cheese Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
Love these. Added some Worcestershire sauce and it was good. It would also be good with some minced onion.

Roasted Garlic Peppercorn Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
This turned into a thick, goopy, milky flavourless mess. I have no idea how it's managed to get 4 stars, but it's lucky to get one from us. Nothing could save this recipe (we added a really nice white wine as others suggested) but the end result just tasted like milky roasted garlic. The only other thing worth mentioning is that it may serve 4 people (as the recipe says) as a side dish, but definitely not as a main dish. Needless to say, we won't be making it again.

Blueberry Muffins II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
I made this muffins this afternoon and the end result was very good; although we did find them a bit on the sweet side. Next time I may reduce the amount of sugar to 1 cup and see how that goes. The only thing really worth mentioning is that I used frozen blueberries and I made mini muffins (baked for 18 minutes) and both worked out really well.

Onion Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
I made this the other night as a side dish to fish. I followed the recipe exactly except I did add more onion and I cooked it in my rice cooker. The end result was "ok"; nothing fantastic. It needs something for sure, I just don't know what.

Low-Fat Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I made this the other night as a side dish and while my husband did like it more than I did - I found it lacked a lot of flavour. I gave it 3 stars because for mac & cheese, it was very easy to put together, but the end result was pretty flavourless (and I did add more onion and spices). Before the dish was cooked, it appeared as though there was going to be plenty of sauce, but after it was baked, the dish was very dry and pretty tasteless.

Beef Tips

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
I made this tonight for dinner and made one minor adjustment based on other reviews. Others said the sauce was too thin, so I dredged the beef in seasoned flour before tossing into the frying pan. The end result was a nice thick gravy. The reason this recipe got only 3 stars is because the flavour is pretty bland and could use something...I just don't know what.

Yum-Yum Corn

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
I made this as a side dish tonight to sweet potato burritos and it went very well. I made a few minor changes though; I cut the recipe in half, but instead of using a bag of frozen corn, I added 2 cans of corn. The only other change I made was to add about 1/2 tsp of pureed jalepeno pepper. The end result was almost exacly like "Mexican Corn" also found on this site, the main difference is that the Mexican Corn recipe is done on the stovetop.

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
I made this rice tonight to go with Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos from this site. The only change I made were to omit the green pepper because I didn't have any and I added about 1/4 cup of chopped, fresh Italian parsley at the end. The only reason this recipe didn't get 5 stars is because the recipe doesn't call for enough liquid IMHO. I ended up adding about an additional 1/2 cup of broth. In the end though, a very nice side dish to any main course.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
I made this recipe for the second time tonight and we just love it! The only change I make is to cut the recipe in half (it makes 8 burrito's if you do this) and I use black beans instead of kidney beans. The end result is delicious and full of fibre; a keeper for sure!!

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
I made this last night for my DH and I and we really enjoyed it. I tripled the ingredients to make 2 servings, but instead of 3 tsp of sugar, I added 2 Tbsp. I also added about 1 tsp of vanilla. The next time, I will try adding a bit of chocolate syrup to make an iced mocha!

Yummy Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
My DH made these croutons tonight for caesar salad and they were ok. The only change he made was to add a little bit of salt....they were much better when they were warm, so I would serve them in a soup or something, but not cold.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
I would like to preface this review by saying that I have never cooked eggplant before and have never eaten eggplant parmesan. I made this for dinner tonight for my DH, mom and I...and we all thought it was absolutely terrible!! This dish tasted like chunky tomato sauce with bread crumbs in it. I really have no idea how so many people have rated it so high...needless to say, we will not be making this again.
