Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was very yummy. I only used 2 chicken breasts (just for BF and myself) and cut the cooking time by half. I found the seasoning made it a little on the salty side so next time I think I would just add ranch dressing to the sandwiches. Awesome with lettuce and red onion. You really need a sturdy bread for these though - I used a cheddar/jalapeno baguette.

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
This bread really IS fabulous! I made it on Sunday and baked 2 loaves and froze the other 4. The bread was perfectly fluffy and delicious. Next time I would make 4 loaves out of the dough rather than six as I found them on the smaller side. I made this recipe in my KitchenAid mixer and it was very easy. Thank you so much!!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
This recipe lives up to its name! There has to be something good going on if the recipe has been reviewed almost 2,700 times! I made these cookies as written, except I didn't grease my baking sheets. I also chilled the dough for 45 minutes and then formed the cookies into balls by hand because it was easier. They needed 17 minutes in the oven and were very soft when they came out. However, after cooling they are perfect. One of my coworkers tasted them and said I should open a bakery.

Luscious Lemon Snaps

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
I made these essentially as written - 3/4 cup of vegetable oil and all! The only difference being I used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Baked for 10 mins in the oven, these were delicious. I brought them to work and all of my coworkers loved them - they are a deliciously different cookie. Next time, I would use more lemon zest and juice because I like a tangy flavour. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
This was...not very good. It was filling, certainly, but didn't come together as I expected. I made a few changes such as adding white wine and chicken broth, frozen peas and using healthy cream of broccoli soup. However, I think the refridgerated biscuit dough topping was what turned me off. Next time it would be worthwhile to make my own biscuit topping or just make a batch of biscuits and serve the chicken mixture over it. I gave it three stars because my boyfriend really enjoyed it and ate a second helping.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This was absolutely DELICIOUS! After reading some of the reviews, I tripled the spice mix and added chilli powder for heat- I also had a bigger pork roast than was specified. It is virtually no work whatsoever and the pork literally fell apart as I was taking it out of the slow cooker. I let the whole thing cook for 10 hours on a Saturday and then shredded the pork, skimmed the fat off the broth and boiled the broth down. I then added 1/4 cup of chili sauce and 2 tbsp sugar and poured the sauce over the pork. Served the whole thing as part of a make-your-own taco bar for my boyfriend's birthday and not a bit was leftover!

Perfumed Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I made this cake on Sunday morning and it truly does smell divine! The cake is easy to whip up although I did have to use regular coconut pudding mix as I could not find any of the instant kind. The cakes were VERY moist, so much so that I cracked one taking it out of the pan. I will know better next time. One other thing that I did was make less frosting. I used about 1/4 cup of butter, 1/4 cup coconut milk, 1/2 tsp coconut extract and 2 cups icing sugar and there was just enough frosting to cover the cake. Everyone who tries this cake, loves it! Not to mention, it is very light tasting.

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
I took the advice of previous reviewers and baked these in a 400 degree oven on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil. I used 1 tblsp of cajun seasoning mix as well as 2 tblsp cornmeal. The cornmeal really added a nice crispness to the outside of the fries. These were delicious!

Herbed Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
I made these for dinner tonight and they were quick and delicious. I added 2 tblsp of cornmeal and used 3/4 cup breadcrumbs and 1/4 panko crumbs. The result was crispy and delicious. My boyfriend raved over them - definitely a healthy alternative to traditional chicken nuggets.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
These were delicious! We had a few bags of shrimp in the freezer and were keen to try this recipe. They are excellent accompanied by a nice cold beer. I made about 30-35 medium shrimp with this recipe and pan-fried them. I also made a sauce of 1/2 cup marmalade and 3 tsp english mustard and it was to die for! Will definitely be making these again. One hint: if you choose to pan fry these, watch them very carefully as they brown VERY quickly!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
This sangria is DELICIOUS! I made it without the extra sugar and used some canned peaches/nectarines and their juice. I only let it sit for about an hour and it was still fantastic. Topped off with ginger ale, it's marvelous! It certainly does sneak up on you...but very pleasantly :) Thanks for the great recipe!

Tim Perry's Soup (Creamy Curry Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup)

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
This is a delicious soup! I followed the directions as written but I added extra curry powder and some garam masala spice. I also pureed the soup with a hand blender because I prefer a smooth consistency. My boyfriend took some for lunch the next day and his co-workers were asking for the recipe!

Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Having a basket full of fresh Ontario peaches in the fridge - peach cobbler seemed like a great idea. This peach cobbler was VERY easy to make. I used about 10 fresh peaches (peeled by dropping them into boiling water for one minute and then dunking them into cold water to slip off their peels) which I boiled with the juice of 1/2 a lemon and some water. I also substituted 1 cup of self rising flour and omitted the baking powder and salt. Finally, I topped off the cobbler with 1/4 cup packed brown sugar and a heaping 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Delicious!
