darmstro67

I have 5 kids aged 10, 12, 15 and 3 year old twins. Therefore, easy and fast, but still healthy and kid friendly is what I like in a recipe. I bought Community Shared Agriculture (CSA)shares in 2011 and plan to again this year so am adding more organic, sustainable foods to our diets. I avoid artificial and overprocessed foods.

This was easy, fast and tasty. I put it over potato wedges and it reminded me of poutine, without all the fat!

I thought this was really tasty, and easy. It is high in fat, though. I used saltine crackers and low fat sour cream.

I wasn't crazy about the texture of this dish. I usually like broccoli and corn together but found this too... not quite mushy, but just not right.

These burgers were delicious! I didn't have sunflower seeds so substituted some ground chick peas. The flavour was really nice and they formed nice patty shapes.

Delicious, and really easy.

Mock Tuna Salad Sandwich

I didn't have the right mustard, so I used dijon. I don't think it tastes like tuna but it is really easy to make and a good all-purpose spread for sandwiches or pitas.

Holly Christmas Cookies

I found these goopy and hard to shape. They didn't set up well, either. I've made rice crispy type cookies tons of times and they always turned out - not really sure what the problem was with this recipe.

Roast Turkey with Herbs

Absolutely the best! I soaked it in a garbage bag in a bucket overnight, added the herbs and rub, and got rave reviews. People who don't like turkey because it's too dry like this turkey! I made it for Thanksgiving and am looking forward to making it again for Christmas.

My daughter loves this and asks me to make it all the time. Great family drink, very festive, very tasty.

I got rave reviews for this one. I changed the mushrooms a bit, since I didn't have fresh. I used a combination of dried and canned, and it was still great.

Cappuccino in a Jar

Yummy. I would go a bit lighter on the cinnamon and nutmeg, that is the only change I would make. I made this to give away but have used most of one batch for home without giving any away! It will make a nice Christmas gift.

I did what other reviewers suggested, made extra sauce and added more veggies. Addictive! Very easy and truly delicious. I used orange juice concentrate for more orange flavour, 1/2 can.
