Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I've been using a different recipe for pie crust - UNTIL NOW! This one is perfection and I wouldn't look any further. Thank you!

Kielbasa Appetizers

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I thought these were going to be delicious, based on the recipe, so I think the problem might have been due to the BBQ sauce I used - Diana's Original - because my husband and I both found these overpoweringly sweet. Maybe if I had reduced the amount of brown sugar they might have been OK. As it was, I kept adding vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, red pepper flakes and a couple of other things to try to get rid of the sweetness. It worked, but just barely.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I love it when I find a recipe that's this simple but tastes fantastic. I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs instead of a whole cut-up chicken. Didn't change anything else, other than to cover it with foil for first bit as suggested by someone else. This will become a regular in our kitchen. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
A definite keeper. The only changes I made were to use low sodium chicken stock and also 5% light cream. Next time I might try non-fat evaporated milk. Thanks for a recipe I'll definitely be making again.

V-Eight Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I'm rating this soup as 4 stars because it's healthy and the easiest recipe possible, with just 3 ingredients. Having said that, I did find the recipe bland. I'll try it again with the onion soup mix that other reviewers have recommended.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I made this recipe yesterday. I couldn't find diced tomatoes with green chilies so I used canned stewed tomatoes and a separate can of chopped green chilies. I also used low sodium tomato sauce and taco seasoning to keep the salt to a minimum. Next time I'll make the taco seasoning recommended but it was delicious this way too. I topped it with some low fat sour cream and grated cheese and it added a lot of flavour. Great recipe for this freezing cold weather and healthy too. Thanks very much.

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I made this soup last weekend and froze it so the first time we had it was last night. It froze well. I cooked it for 5 hours but found it came out super thick and I had to add quite a bit more milk to it. Didn't hurt the flavour a bit but next time I'll only cook it for 4 hours and will use another half cup of boiling water. My husband loved it and I'll be making it again - thanks!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Wow! This was so much fun to put together. I thought it would take longer to do but it was surprisingly quick. I found that the "bodies" stood up much better when I sliced a tiny bit off the bottom of the olive so it was completely flat against the carrot feet. I bought a cheese ball since time was tight and frosted it with whipped cream cheese to make the igloo. Next time I won't use the whipped kind since it was hard to draw lines through it. I covered a pizza pan with tin foil, lay a piece of blue construction paper over top and then covered it again with saran so the "water" would look icy. Then I covered the base with slabs of cream cheese and they made a great bank of snow against the water. I also used a piece of styrofoam which was in a box with an appliance and I roughed up the surface so it resembled a snowy hill and I stood 2 penguins on the ledges. The penguins stood in place well since they were set into the cream cheese. The whole thing turned out well and it was pretty tasty since I followed others' advice and used a flavoured cream cheese instead of plain. Thanks so much for this recipe and for all the photos I used as a guide. I'll definitely be making this again!

Maple Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
I've always made my grandmother's recipe for apple crisp which used only flour, butter and sugar (no oats) but I wanted to "healthy" it up a bit. I loved the recipe with the suggestions of using half the amount of butter and cutting back on the brown sugar a bit. I made it again last night, cutting out another 2 tablespoons of butter and only using half the maple syrup, and adding a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. As a result, the apples weren't as soft and the topping wasn't as good. Next time I'll try making it with half the amount of maple syrup and an equal amount of apple cider, and will use 2 tablespoons of apple sauce to replace 2 tablespoons of the butter. As I said, I did love the recipe as is (with the suggested changes) but would like to cut back on the calories/fat a bit more so I can make - and eat - it more often.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
I made these biscuits a couple of nights ago and it's true, they are really the best. Very light and nice texture. Next time I might cut them into squares and then across, making them into triangles so they look like scones. Some Devonshire cream and jam would be delicious on them.

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
This recipe looked so intriguing I just had to try it so I made it tonight for dessert for my husband and my sister and her family. It's absolutely true that you'd never know you're eating tortillas. I'm going to make it again next weekend for company. The house smelled wonderful too! Thanks ReDonna!

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Wow! Just made this tonight for my husband and my sister and her family and it was a winner. So easy and so delicious. My roast was 4 pounds and I cooked it at 325 for the first hour, as suggested by others, and then 350 for the remaining 2 1/4 hours. I added baby carrots and potatoes for the last hour. I'll definitely be making this again - thanks so much!!

Baked Oatmeal Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
I made 2 batches of these, the first with applesauce instead of vegetable oil (and craisins and walnuts), and the second with grapeseed oil with a tablespoon of maple syrup added. The consistency of the second batch was very crumbly, but the first was excellent and held together well. Next time I will double the recipe as others suggested so the squares are a bit thicker. Nice healthy recipe - thanks!

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
This has become one of my favourite recipes. No one believes these rolls are homemade but they're actually so easy they almost make themselves. I've found that I like to decrease the sugar slightly and increase the salt slightly - just a personal preference. I put the dough inside my over-the-stove microwave for both rises (to keep it away from any drafts) and turn the light on over the stove so it keeps the inside of the oven just slightly warm. I also don't cover the rolls when they're in there for the second rise. I've made these twice for company this week alone.

Shrimp Bisque

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
I made this recipe last night when I had a couple of friends over for dinner. Fantastic! They both want the recipe. It was super easy to make and was great with the French Bread Rolls to Die For from this site. I used a bit more of the chili oil - maybe it wasn't hot enough because I could only find Thai Sweet Chili Oil. I also couldn't find no fat half and half in my regular grocery store so I used some no fat evaporated milk along with the regular half and half (equal quantities of both). Instead of topping it with parmesan, I put a single whole shrimp and sprig of parsley on top. I'll be making this again. Thanks for a keeper!

Becki's Oven Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
Thanks for this recipe. It's a keeper! I made it for "girls night" this past Tuesday and everyone loved it. I sprayed the pan before putting everything in it and it was easy to clean afterward despite all the sauce.
