Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
Absolutely fantastic pecan pie! Love it! I made it yesterday morning and it is almost gone. I have a small container for a fried as well ( otherwise I think I would eat the whole pie ). My daughter loves it too and I can't wait to make it again. Used just under the 1/4c white sugar but left everything else the same. Cooked 10 mins on 165 ( forced fan oven ) and then reduced cooking time to 30 mins on 140 degrees. Had to cover about 20 mins into the last part of cooking to prevent edges from getting too dark. Still turned out perfect! Will make again and again, smiles! This is the 2nd time I am rating this recipe again 5 stars. I have made it twice now with macadamia nuts and it is beautiful. A fab recipe for both pecan or macadamia pie. Love them both. I always get asked for the recipe or to bring a pie along to a get together....... YUMMY!!

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Great recipe! I used just under 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and added it after I sauteed the peppers and garlic. I used 1.5 large red peppers, 1 cup light sour cream, 1/2 chicken stock and I added in some grilled chicken breast from last night. A wonderful meal. It still has a bit of bite with the slightly under 1/2 tsp added to the recipe. We had it with noodles and a garden salad, delicious! A keeper recipe for me and my family. Very easy and very tasty. We will make it again :o)

Toll House Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
I thought this pie was pretty good. I didn't know what to expect at first as I have never heard of it or made it before. It is very very sweet but very yummy so I can see why so many reviewers suggest a scoop of ice cream ( it would compliment and offset the sweetness of the pie :o)I used 1 c. of chocolate melts and a cup of crumbled walnuts. I started baking the pie at 145 ( forced fan oven ) and turned down the temp to 130 after 30 mins as the pie was already looking done. I ended up baking it for 36 mins in total and I would say it was completely done at that time. Top was nice and the bottom was nice ( not too dark ). It is a sort of gooey pie - a pass between a pecan pie but also tasting like a chocolate chip cookie. Next time I would cook the pie the same way or decrease the start time to 130 and bake it longer, maybe 40-45 mins and see how it goes. A very rich and tasty pie.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
These are very very good muffins. I made them in mini muffin form and baked each 12 hole tray for 9 mins on 150 degree ( forced fan oven ). The streusel topping is very nice and the muffins were an overall hit! I used 2.5 bananas, 1/2 cup white sugar and subbed in the 1/3 cup oil. I will make these again! Great way to use up rip bananas. I had to change my rating to 5 stars. My whole family has been eating these all day. We love them. The topping goes kinda crunchy and well they are a nice treat. I made 28 mini muffins with the batter and I even shared a few muffins with the neighbours :o)

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
This recipe was really really good. I love Artichoke dip so I thought I would give this a try. I used half Miracle Whip and half light sour cream mixed with the parmesan cheese. I also added 1.5 tsp minced garlic with a sprinkle or salt & pepper. Even though I did squeeze out my artichokes I did still have a clear liquid in the baking pan. It was easy enough to just drain the pan a few times while the chicken was cooking. I had to adjust the oven once and ended up cooking the chicken on 170 forced-fan oven for 40 mins in total. The top browned nicely and overall I thought the recipe was a great find. We had the chicken with a summer salad topped with craisins, slivered almonds, grated light tasty cheese and a light salad dressing. I also served fresh garlic bread and it was a great meal. Thanks again for the recipe.

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
This was a really nice recipe to try. I cut the sugar down to 2/3 cup and also the butter down to 2 Tbsp. I used low fat vanilla yogurt and just over 1 cup of frozen raspberries. I did get the sort of purpley effect in the batter but it looked great. Next time I will add the raspberries last for a different colouring effect. I baked the muffins ( 12 regular sized muffins ) for 20 mins @ 140 degrees ( forced-fan oven ) and they turned out really nice. Bottoms & tops were nice and brown with no burning and the centres were cooked. I will make these again and try different variations of yogurts ( all fat free ) and different fruit combinations. Thanks again for the posting!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
I thought this was a GREAT recipe. Loved the fish. We grilled it on the BBQ and used Basa instead of Mahi Mahi. The glaze was a bit runny but I still loved it. It was a nice change for a meal. We also BBQ'd/grilled zucchini after we did the fish and it soaked up some of the sauce. It tasted beautiful as well. We served it over cous cous and thought it was a GREAT meal. Will make it again for sure. Thanks for a great recipe.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
This recipe was really good (not great) but good and I am glad I tried it. Next time I would add choc chips for sure. My daughter made a big cookie with some of the batter and she put lots of choc bits in it. It was wonderful. I think the choc bits really made a difference in the cookie for me. I always like to try new recipes so I was glad I came across this one. Thanks for the posting.

Absolutely LOVED this recipe! This was my first attempt at making lasagna and I was so so pleased with the outcome of this lasagna. SO SO easy! I used 500g chicken mince, 375g jar tomato paste, 800g diced tomatoes, subbed minced garlic for the fresh garlic, added some chopped zucchini and lastly I subbed 250g light ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese and this was DELICIOUS! I baked it at 155 degrees for the stated time and it was Perfect when I pulled it out of the oven! My husband and I loved it. It smelled wonderful cooking and well it tasted just as good.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Great recipe! This was my first time making Sweet Potato Pie and it was way better than I thought it would be. I changed some of the ingredients: 2/3 cup sugar ( 1/3c white and 1/3c brown ), 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and I had to use puff pastry as I didn't have any shortcrust pastry or homemade pie pastry handy and the mashed sweet potato came out to 1 1/2 cups when I measured it out. I baked the pie in the oven at 140 deg C ( forced fan oven ) for 40 mins. and the pie turned out great. I think I wouldn't use puff pastry again as I do like the normal pie crust way better and I think I would add a little more sweet potato ( as most recipes call for 2 cups ) and lastly I think I would cook it for a few mins longer just making sure I don't burn the pie crust. Cooking time may change slightly with the reg pie crust anyways. Definately a keeper recipe for sure. My daughter loved her piece and we took some over to the neighbours as well...... Enjoy!

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
Awesome recipe! This is the first time I used this recipe and I totally love it ( so do my daughters and the neighbours :o) We shared some of the cookies out last night and everyone thought they were very delicious! We did make some changes to the recipe as well. We used 1/2c butter instead of shortening, 1 cup brown sugar instead of the 1 1/4c cup, 1 cup of crunchy peanut butter ( just because we had crunchy in the cupboard ), an extra wee bit of vanilla, and we baked them in a fan-forced oven @ 152ish C instead of the 190 stated. Also we found 8 mins was perfect for baking time.. bottoms looked great and none of them burned... VERY HAPPY! This is now a keeper recipe for me and my family for sure. THANKS for posting it :o)I think these would be nice with choc chips or peanut butter chips or even toffee bits, smiles!
