Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
Yummy, this is the first time I ever made butternut squash! I prepared the squash by cutting it in half length and width wise (for a quicker cook time), removed the seedy/fibery centre and baked it flat side down for 375-400F till it is soft (varies based on size of squash - mine took around 45 min) - easy to scoop out soft squash and mush with a fork when cooked. Like others I halved the sugar and I also substitued half of the margerine/butter for applesauce. For the toping, I used Quaker Oat Squares - Maple and Brown Sugar (crushed)instead of the vanilla wafers. The maple flavour goes well with the squash. Definitely will make again, friends were asking me for the recipe! Note: Topping goes soft by Day 3 - if i wasn't saving it for somebody to try, I wouldn't have found this out!

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Yummy and easy. I used mostly yogurt instead of mayo. I threw in a couple of tbsp of mayo just to make it a little sweeter/creamier. But it was good the way it was. I also used dijon mustard.

Spiced Pot Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
Followed the directions as indicated, substituted pitted dates for raisins because that is what I had in the pantry. Yummy and easy - super flavourful - good gravy consistency with all the flour added.

Best Ever Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
Yummy Yummy Yummy! I took the advice of the other writers and used cream of mushroom soup (all i had), added chopped celery, some garlic powder, and used Bran flakes instead (again, all I had), I think I also used less mayo...but I didn't measure anything...Oh, and I didn't boil the chicken, I just pan fried it in a little bit of olive oil. So all in all, this recipes is quite adjustable to the contents of your pantry :)

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 20, 2014
Marinated overnight and placed on skewers. Super duper easy and yummy! As previous posters recommeded - soak those skewer sticks prior to BBQ. Classic Honey Garlic flavour - can't wait to try it with wings (I used chicken breast this time).

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
I changed the 1/2 cup oil to 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce to make it healthier. I didn't add walnuts because I didn't have any and added some peanut butter chips. In the last 3-5 minutes i sprinkled some chocolate chips on top and spread it with a spatula instead of the frosting. The batter itself wasn't very sweet, with the topping it was just right. Received great review from colleagues and friends, especially those who are not a fan of overly sweet treats. Very moist, nobody could tell that it was zucchini!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
yummy yummy yummy! I used whole wheat flour and 2 cups white sugar and 1 cup brown as recommended. i also used 1/2 cup veg. oil and 1/2 cup apple sauce. I made a loaf and two batches of muffins and in some of it there were raisins, some there were walnuts, some there were chocolate chips. i really liked having the walnuts in the loaf. It taste much better the second day and it goes amazingly well with coffee...so good, i had two cups of coffee so I could use it as an excuse to eat another slice!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2014
Did not add garlic salt - as other reviewers stated soya sauce is already "salty" and added more garlic cloves (4 large). Otherwise, super easy and delicious - the sauce is delicious! Served with rice and green beans.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
very well received, i took away 1/3 flour and added 1/3 cornmeal. Delish! Next time maybe will add some jalepeno flakes to give it a sweet/spicy flavour.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I substituted the shortening for applesauce. After I mixed all the ingredients except for the raisins. I divided the dough into 3. In one batch I put raisins, in the second batch I put craisins, and in the third batch I put chocolate chips. It was yummy, and chewy, and the chocolate chip batch was by far the most well received. But having the variety was good for different preferences.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
As per other's advice, I used almost 1/2 cup oil 1/2 cup applesauce with some flaxseed. I used only 2 cups of sugar (1 white, 1 brown). I doubled the spices and added allspice and vanilla as well (1 tsp as well). I used 1/2 cup of raisins. It made 1 loaf and 18 muffins. Loaf I baked for 60, muffins I baked for 30 mins ~ all at 350F. It turned out very well - could use a bit more raisins - next time I would use 3/4 of a cup of raisins instead of 1/2. I would definitely make it again ~ very flavourful and not very unhealthy after the adjustments.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
To make it healthier, I substituted the oil for applesauce. I didn't have wheat bran, so I just used all whole wheat flour. I think next time, I will try it with ground flax seeds (full of good omega fats). I used craisins instead of raisins (because my sister doesn't like raisins) and I threw in some chopped almonds and shredded coconut for flavour. These were healthy and delicious. I know I changed it quite a bit, but I don't think I could've made it without this base recipe to build off of. Thanks!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
Fast, easy, and delicious. I put in the sugar near the end and before I put in the egg...I scrambled and mixed it with the last 1/2 cup of milk. A little less sugar next time will suit my taste more. Although I like raisins, I like it better without, that's just my personal preference though...a little cinnamon sprinkled on top before serving is also nice. Thanks for the recipe!! This is the second time I've made it.

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Easy and delicious. I followed the recipe with only a small alteration of using 5% cream rather then half and half. I actually roasted the butternut squash days before and did not make it then due to time constraints. Turned out delicious...my husband could not get enough.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I halve the recipe because 6 tomatoes make a lot of bruschetta. Easy to follow tasty recipe! Like other reviewers, I toast the bread with the cheese and have people add however much bruschetta they want on top, otherwise, I'd probably make a mess in the oven and have soggy bread to boot. I used tomatoes on a vine one time and it made it very watery, I would recommend sticking to the plum tomatoes.
