Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
Yummy, I followed the advice of others: 1) increased cream cheese to 2 1/2 packages 2) increased sugar by 2tbsp 3) increased content of pumpkin 4) made my own graham cracker crust (1 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of sugar, 6 tbsp of butter, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon)- bake crust for 10 minutes prior to adding cheesecake mixture. Like others,I did 1 1/2 cup of plain cheesecake on the bottom and the rest on the top. I lined the bottom of spingform pan with parchment paper, I would cool in the oven with the door closed for a couple of hours before placing it in the fridge to prevent cracking. I baked for 50-55 min. I placed a pan of water on the shelf below because I did not want to place the actual cake in the water as per other reviews and fear of water seaping into cheesecake. Enjoy :)

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Cake turned out really well. I read the reviews and adjusted like recommended 1) 3/4 cup oil + 1/2 cup apple sauce 2) 1 cup white and 1 cup brown sugar 3) 3 tsp cinnamon 4) 3 tsp vanilla 5) 1 cup crushed pinapple drained of fluids 6) 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I made 2 x 9" cake pans of cake, I cooled it on rack and then cut it in half, then used the icing mixture in the middle and on top to make it a double layered carrot cake. Oh, I also only used 2 cups of sifted icing for the frosting..I made it with 4 before and it was WAY too sweet.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I added 3 tbsp sugar because I prefer sweeter bread and used 2 cups of whole wheat bread flour and 1 cup of all purpose flour. I was afraid of using this method because of the instructions that come with the machine, however, I did it this way and it turned out beautifully!! (I even had less yeast then recommended because I ran out - just under 2 tsp). A good solid basic bread recipe.

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.

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!

These were quick and easy to whip up. As recommended, I omitted the lemon extract and did the second bake for only 10-12min only. Yummy!

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.

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.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
simple, nutritious and delicious. i also added vanilla and cinnamon, changed the AP flour to whole wheat flour and used apple sauce in lieu of oil. I did use butter for the pan though. also, i recommend using the quarter cup size for the pancake as it makes it easier to turn over.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
So easy and yummy. I topped mine with blueberry pie filling ~ delicious! Could not resist eating on same day, but definitely recommend letting cheesecake cool overnight in fridge for better texture ~ allows it to set better. I read about the hot water bath, but also read about water leaking in, so i filled a tray with water and put it on a shelf underneath the cake ~ worked well, no cracks. Used the recipe for crust from other reviewers and not the one listed here. Got rave reviews for that too!

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 :)

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!
