    "This is a wonderful recipe that sure comes in handy when I do not have the time for slow cooking, yet the stew still turns out as if it's been simmering on the stove all day. The recipe calls for simple ingredients that are quick to assemble and all can be done in one pot. I threw in four small granny smiths and used regular potatoes as that was t..."

    "This recipe is surely a snap to prepare, can be any last minute meal. I used tomato basil sauce and fusilli pasta and sauteed the sausages with garlic. Thanks for the recipe... needed to get rid of my cream of mushroom!"

    LinMarie says:

    "This salad was beyond description. The salad burst with flavors and though it does require some advance preparation, it was simple enough and well worth the effort. As I did not have exact ingredients on hand, I made a few substitutions. Used corella pears, toasted almonds, apple juice and onions rather than cider and shallots for the vinagrette. ..."

    "I used this recipe as a reference and the cake turned out excellent! I used ony 3 eggs, cut down a lot on sugar and also added a tablespoon of Cointreau. A refreshingly citrusy cake that will be even more delightful had I have any cream to serve along. Would imagine this to make a great dessert following a sweet roast pork."

    LinMarie says:

    "Also used this recipe as a reference, great soup! I first cooked potatoes on the side, drained half of the starchy water, then pureed the potatoes with the remaining liquid. That way I used less chicken stock to create a soup lower in sodium. I also threw in a secret ingredient - 2 slices of bacon, chopped - first browning them in a bit of butter ..."

    "I prepared this recipe a whole day in advance for my huge Housewarming party of 14 and it turned out amazing! I left the celery seeds, spring onions and buttermilk out and re-adjusted the amount of lemon juice and vinegar along the way. So refreshing, so easy, and the flavor couldn't get any better. Really hard to believe this was homemade. Thanks..."

    "To be honest I was so skeptical about this recipe I stuck the casserole into the oven wishing it luck. I prepared it as a single-course lunch using only half a head of cabbage and a can of Cream of Mushroom with Ham, then added in ground pork (quickly marinated with a dash of soy sauce, white pepper and oregano), and used shallots instead of onion..."

    LinMarie says:

    "This was my first try at preparing pumpkin soup and my guests and I loved it. I used 3 cups of chicken stock instead and used a whole pumpkin which was chopped into chunks and cooked in the broth until 'pureed' (15 min). I also used Indian masala powder in place of curry powder which added an extra kick. Honey was omitted and evaporated milk was r..."

    "I served these potato skins for my Xmas feast last night making use of what I had and received many compliments! I omitted the cheddar and cayenne pepper since I don't have them and made use of some baked ham (shredded) as a substitute for the bacon. The ham came out of the oven crispy like bacon bits but without the fat- it worked great! I admit ..."

    "This recipe rocked the socks off my guests! I marinated 16 wings for 10 hours and baked them together with the marinade at 180 Celsius. The sauce was caramelized and the wings came out golden and ready within 20 minutes! The wings burst with flavor from many hours of marination. Will definitely try with drumsticks and thighs next time. Thanks!"
