Baked Brie with Mushrooms and Almonds

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
I made this over the holidays when my boyfriends family came to visit. We had it in the middle of a domino's game. This was so good. Everyone was raving about it. We put the game on hold to gobble it up. I did make some adjustments, I didn't have the almonds so I put walnuts in. I also added some sundried tomatoes. I served it with some Nonna garlic toasts from Costco. I can't wait to make it again!!!

Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
Great cake! I frosted it with a chocolate cream cheese icing I had left over from my bf's Banana Chocolate Truffle B'day cake. The cake was great with the chocolate cream cheese icing. The cake itself was moist and had the perfect peanut butter flavour.

Tartar Sauce II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
I was making Beer Battered Haddock when I noticed we didn't have any tartar sauce. I came across this recipe and it was GREAT!!! My family loved it and it was so easy and quick to come together. I was in a rush so I didn't add the hard boiled egg, so I don't know if it would make a difference but I know it was very good and refreshing without it. I don't think I will ever buy a jarred tartar sauce again!

Simple Grilled Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
Marinated some chops for my bf, he absolutely loved this marinade. I did as some one else suggested and sauteed the onions which he loved on the side. I'm not a fan of lamb, but it was great I totally enjoyed it. He is looking forward to putting some lamb chops on the Weber again.

Mushroom Orzo

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
I used this recipe as a base and added some things. I didn't have pearl onions so just chopped some onions up and used chicken broth instead of water. I added some chopped roasted red peppers and chopped tomatoes. It turned out wonderful and was so fresh and a nice side dish to our pork and chicken dinner. Everyone loved it, it will definitely go into rotation.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Excellent cake with an excellent texture. It is moist and dense inside with a slight crispy exterior. Great out of the oven, but still great at room temp. I did make a few minor changes to adapt to my preferences; I decreased the sugar to 1 1/2C and used brown sugar instead of white and increased the cinnamon to 3 tsp and vanilla to 2 tsp.

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
The glaze is excellent. I used it on pork chops instead of a roast. I reduced the glaze a bit on the stove, broiled the chops then glazed them and broiled a few minutes more.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I made one change, I subbed the sugar for honey. It turned out beautiful. It is nice and moist, not too sweet, I look forward to making sandwiches for lunch with it.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
This is great and quick. Everyone at the party I brought it to loved it. I changed it to my taste using mozza and provolone. Cold cuts I used were Genoa salami, cooked ham and prociutto salami. I added Italian seasoning to the egg mix with parmesan and add all of it to the cold cuts. I mixed some olve oil and oregano and brushed the top of the cresent rolls with it and then sprinkled more freshly grated parmesan on top. It was great and I can addapt it to any flavor concept I want.

Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Great recipe and tastes great! This was super easy and a great way to use up some apples that were on their last leg. I only had 1 lb of apples so I just barely covered with water as the written part of the recipe states and add just a little under a 1/4C of sugar (I just added a few teaspoons of sugar to taste approx. 1/4C) and the juice of 1/2 of a lemon. I also added a couple of cinnamon sticks. Will definitely make again.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Cookies are great! The cookies have a crispy exterior and a chewy interior and I baked for 15 minutes. I used 1/8C to make the cookies, I think 1/4C would be too big for me. I added 1 1/2 C of chocolate chips and 1/2C of pecans. Next time I will do a cup of each. They are sweet and rich and two cookies were more than enough and one would be perfect...but I would look forward to my next cookie. A great chocolate chip cookie and will go into my chocolate chip cookie rotation.

Pecan Squares Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Tastes like Pecan Pie, only you can hold it in your hand. I cut back the recipe to 18 servings and cut back the corn syrup to 3/4C because of what others said in other reviews. I don't like things too sweet and some reviews said it was too sweet so I cut back the sugar to 1/2C instead of 1C, but I could go with 3/4C. In the end I drizzled them with a little melted chocolate. Super yummy!

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Great cookies! Soft on the inside just the way I like it. My fiance loved them and was surprised at the "secret" ingredient. It is not an overpowering bacon flavor, but the whole point is to compliment. You take a bite and wonder what is that?...they are yummy.

Best Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
This is a great quick dinner. It is adaptable to what you had on hand. I added green peppers, cornflakes instead of chips, onion powder, fresh garlic, paprika and a can of milk along with the cheese, tuna, soup and pasta. It was creamy and yummy.

Teriyaki Sauce

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
Quick, Easy and Tasty. I used Madeira wine because I didn't have any Sherry. I made this for Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin from this site. Everyone loved the sauce that I made with this teriyaki. I know some people that simmer their sauce on the stove top for a bit. I may try this next time and see how it works out as a dipping sauce.
