Pad See Ew (Thai Noodles with Beef and Broccoli)

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Soooo delicious! Tastes like take out. I made a vegetarian version as I didn't have any beef...used broccoli, mushrooms, bean sprouts and green onions. Added a little sesame oil to the sauce and some hot sauce. Tasted even better when I ate it cold for a late night snack! Will soooo be making this again and again! Thanks for a fantabulous recipe!!!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Awesome, awesome, awesome is all I have to say!!! The texture of these cookies is heavenly! I leave out the cherry though and either dip half in dark chocolate or else make a thumbprint and fill with raspberry jam...but they are terrific as is too! I also took the first reviewers tip and whipped the butter for 5 minutes and whipping between the sugar and flour additions. Stellar recipe!

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
So fast and easy to make AND they taste great too...that equals five stars in my books! Read the reviews and used half brown and half white sugars, 2 tbsp of flour and a splash of vanilla, and rolled the balls in sugar before flattening with a fork and baking on parchment paper for about 15 minutes until they were a golden brown colour. I let them cool completely on the parchment and they are crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle...perfection! Will make again and again...next time I'll add some chocolate chips!

Cheese Rosti

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
This was a super yummy side dish! I peeled and microwaved my potatoes for a few minutes, then grated. I lightly oiled a pan, layered on some potato, some grated mozzarella, salt and pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning, topped with some more potatoes and the seasonings. I fried it until it covered, didn't need any water or extra butter. When it was browned and crispy on the bottom, I cut it in half and flipped it (easier than flipping it whole). When it was browned and crispy...I served it with a dollop of sour cream. Will be making this one often!

Easy One-Step Spaghetti

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
I have to say I was skeptical but it turned out great! I sauteed some onion, bell pepper, mushrooms and zuchini in olive oil before adding the sauce and water...turned out great! I did have to add some more water while simmering as the noodles weren't quite al dente yet.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Fast easy recipe and tasted great! I took others advice and increased milk to 1c, increased oil to 1/2 cup, and added a dollop of sour cream. Also added extra chocolate chips, and cinnamon. Used about 3/4c sugar and it was perfect, not too sweet.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
Fabulous!!! I omitted the tomato sauce, used 3.5 tbsp of curry powder and 1.5 tbsp of sugar and seasoned generously with salt and pepper. Added some mushrooms, brocolli, and green peppers. Simmered for about an hour uncovered and the consistency and flavour was perfect. Will certainly be making this again soon!

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I made these as a side for Mother's Day dinner and was absolutely delighted with how they turned out. I followed the recipe to a tee. I was concerned they'd be too vinegary but they were perfect. I will make these again for sure...they taste great and are super simple to prepare.

Butter-Dipped Biscuit Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
So fast and easy! I was skeptical at first because there were so few ingredients but it was fantastic. I am not a bread maker but even I didn't goof this one up! I couldn't seem to make nice looking squares like the picture so I just rolled mine into balls and flattened. I halved the recipe and got 6 decent sized biscuits which I baked in a small casserole dish. After coating with butter, I generously sprinkled the biscuits with garlic powder and an Italian seasoning blend. They turned out beautifully and were very flavorful. Served with Mulligatawny Soup I from this site and a chicken caesar salad...deeelish! I will be making these often, especially to wow my dinner guests=)

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Yum...tasted great and came together quickly! I sauteed the chicken in olive oil with onion and garlic. I seasoned with salt and pepper and italian seasonings. I used frozen mixed veggies, 1 can of cream of chicken and half a can of milk. Poured it all into a pie crust and baked until golden. Will make again. My only problem was scooping it out...it got a little ugly but still tasted fantastic!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Out of this world delish! Quite possibly the best soup I have ever made. Looks and tastes amazing and it was easy to make=) I did have to add more chicken broth as the rice seemed to absorb a lot of it. And I used about 2 tablespoons of curry for a more intense flavour. I sure wish I made a double batch!

Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Porridge

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Quick and easy to prepare! I used quick cooking oats and cooked them with water in the microwave for 2.5 mins, then added the mashed banana and brown sugar and cooked for another 2 mins. Loved the sweetness of the banana and brown sugar. Just eyeballed the amt of sugar added. I sprinkled the chocolate chips on top but will probably omit next time...didn't really need them.

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
This recipe was great...fast and easy to prepare, looked awesome and tasted even better! I added extra spices to the parmesan and white sauce...italian seasonings, garlic, soy sauce, salt and pepper...just kept tasting and throwing stuff in until it tasted right. Threw in some mushrooms and used fresh spinach leaves. Used a combo of green and white onions. Added some panko breadcrumbs to the parmesan mixture...liked the crunchiness it added. Will definitely make again!
