Basic Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
My husband and I have started making our own pasta.. and this basic recipe is wonderful.. although you really have to flour the SNOT out of it to keep it from sticking into a huge clump.

Old-Fashioned Mini Plum Loaves

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
Wonderful cake-like loaves. The syrup topping is an awesome touch. Although I found it didn't taste much like plums, the cinnamon came through and it does taste really good!! I even made six cupcakes with the batter I had left over and they were good too!

Summer Couscous

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
This was a super easy and good recipe.. I used Orzo pasta as my toddler really likes it. I just cooked the pasta and added a bit of lemon juice to the whole thing.

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
This recipe was pretty good, we will be making it again for sure. I halved the peppers length wise, but i think i might just cut the tops off of them next time as the peppers weren't very deep to stuff.

Banana Muffins with a Crunch

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
These were super awesome, and I made all the changes suggested by other reviewers to make them healthier. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 2 of all purpose, I used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown. I only used 1/2 cup of melted butter, and 1/2 cup applesauce. I mixed dry ing, then added butter, then wet, then at the end I added the coconut, finely chopped pecans :) and some finely shredded carrot and a smidge of mini chocolate chips.. they were awesome, and on the healthy side for my 2 year old.

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
My husband said this is his new favourite way to eat broccoli... and that is saying a lot!!! I used 2 cloves of garlic and kept everything else the same. We wanted to eat this right away.. so i mixed it up.. microwaved for 1 1/2 minutes and then put in the fridge.. it was much faster than blanching, and the flavours were wonderful.. done everything in 30 mins.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
These are wonderful! I doubled everything except the topping as others suggested and used 3 apples ( 2 1/2) cups) as well as only using 1/2 cup of each sugar both times that i've made this. It is really, really good! The healthy version of a brownie!!

Speedy Homemade Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
The best salsa for sure. We will NEVER buy jars of salsa again. This was easy and i used a can of diced tomatoes which made it even easier to whip up in under 10 minutes!

Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Wonderful salsa verde! Be warned that 2 jalapeno peppers still makes for a hot salsa. We like spicy food in our house and I would only use 1 jalapeno next time. I felt that by using 2 the hotness overpowered the flavour a bit.

Concord Grape Pie III

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Good pie! I mashed all the grapes and then picked out the skins. It was still a lot of work but it seemed easier then separating the grapes one-by-one. I won't be making this very often, as it took my quite some time. A nice tasting pie in the end!
