Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Very good. I added some pepper, and also a bit more water. I used reduced-sodium boullion.

Congo Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
My mother made these when i was a kid. (Cookies are time consuming ;) Like cookies, don't overbake: better a bit underdone so they're nice and chewy when cooled.

Honey Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
Tasty. I would double the sauce next time though, as it seemed a bit dry. As well, a bit of ginger might be nice.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
The only thing I would change next time would be to cut the frosting in half and thin it with milk, then drizzle it over the rolls. It's too thick and there's too much of it for our liking. Really overpowers the rolls.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
Very good. They tasted and look much like the ground beef burgers I make (same sort of ingredients!) I will make them again.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
Moist and delicious. Four stars only because I used an extra tablespoon of cocoa (maybe will try even more next time), left out the cinnamon & cloves, and used applesauce instead of the oil. When he saw me mixing this up, my husband said "I'm not eating that." He tried it, loved it, and took some to work (where it was much enjoyed!)

Awesome Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
If I was making a lot of these for kids I would use this method. Otherwise, I'll use the grill.

Mushroom Barley Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
I really like this. My husband, who loves barley in soup, thought it was only so-so. We both agree it's on the bland side. I'll make it again, but I'll add some garlic and thyme. Mine took about 45 minutes to cook.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Soft, light, and delicious with a crisp crust. I replaced 1 cup of flour with multi-grain blend flour. Sliced nicely, too.

Green Tomato Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
This cake does taste good, and it's moist like carrot cake. I made it as written, except for the raisins. Next time I would follow another reviewer's advice and shred the tomatoes: I diced the tomatoes into small 1/4" pieces, but that just meant I had little gelatinous whitish-green bits in my cake. One kid made a "booger" comment, lol. The cake isn't as dark as, say, a chocolate zucchini cake, so those bits were obvious. I didn't find the tomato bits to be salty at all. Just be sure to rinse them well. I would make this again, with the addition of some other spices, such as ginger and cloves.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
I had bananas in the freezer, and sour cream a day past its 'best before' date, so I decided to try this recipe. This was the best banana bread I've ever made! So moist and the flavour was just right. I don't have 4 loaf pans, so I made 2 loaves and a bundt cake. I used flax seed meal & water instead of eggs. I could take or leave the cinnamon-sugar coating, but my husband definitely liked it.

Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
I made this recipe as written, except for using winter squash (in place of pumpkin), applesauce (instead of oil), and flaxseed meal/water (rather than eggs). The muffins turned out really well. However, I would agree with some of the other reviewers: Even though some of the cranberries were super-tart, I still found the muffins on the overly sweet side.

Italian Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
I made this recipe as written: it was edible, but really bland. The egg part of the coating was sort of like the underside of chicken skin. The directions seemed fussy for this type of recipe, too. Far simpler to bake uncovered at 425º for 25 minutes. I'll stick to using a very thin coating of low-fat mayo (instead of the egg), and a more seasoned crumb coating recipe. I do appreciate the use of flax seed meal in this recipe, though. I will add flax seed to my usual recipe. Thanks for that :)

Cracked Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
I used olive oil instead of margarine, and added a bit of flax seed for the health benefits. I will make this again.

Pumpkin Rolls I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
Delicious, soft, and such a pretty colour! I used kabocha pumpkin/squash that I baked and mashed a couple days ago. You cannot taste the pumpkin - which is a plus, as my husband likely wouldn't eat them otherwise. They're more of a conversation piece ;) I made 1/2 of the recipe, so I could use my bread machine to make the dough. The rolls were huge! Next time I would make 24 rolls from a 1/2 recipe, rather than 16. I will make these again, but as round pan rolls, rather than crescents.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
Very tasty. I made this with very juicy high-bush berries and a full top crust, so I increased the cornstarch to 4 tbsp and cooked it for an hour. My photo shows the pie after cooling at room temperature for 4 hours: holding together nicely, but still juicy! My berries were on the tart side, but 3/4 cup sugar made the pie sweet.

Chinese Firecrackers

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Very good! I ended up with 11 "firecrackers", so I guess my tablespoons were generous. The chile paste I used was actually "Chile, Garlic & Ginger" paste. I really appreciate how much better these are for you than deep fried. Great with plum sauce. Will definitely make again!

Frozen Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I made 12 muffins and an 8" square cake with this recipe. The muffins took less than 20 minutes to cook. We ate the cake the next day: it was wonderful!! Moist and tasty. I used about 3 cups of frozen blueberries, rather than 2.

Oregano Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
It was edible but too tart for us. I may have liked it more with half the lemon juice, but I don't think I'll try making it again.

Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
Soooo yummy! Light and crisp and garlicky! We kept munching them before they made it to the salad.
