Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
This is a pretty good, simple stir-fry. I've made this a few times and substituted pork in lieu of the beef. It's a quick, delicious meal if you're in a hurry!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
Fantastic pizza dough! I highly recommend following the instructions left by another reviewer (LadyMHarris) though - letting the dough rise really made a difference.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
Absolutely fantastic recipe! I halved it and used half white and half whole wheat flour. I underestimated the size of loaf this would make so it made one superduper large 9x5 loaf.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Fantastic cookie recipe - even better if you double (or even triple) the amount of vanilla recommended.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Perfection. I make these for my boyfriend and almost once a week! In lieu of the crumb topping I now sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar and sometimes add about a tsp of it to the batter itself.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Yummy! I did what the other reviewers did and doubled the sauce ingredients except the corn starch. I think next time I won't double the honey as the sauce was a tad too sweet. Overall, it was pretty good!

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I followed the recipe almost exactly - I cut down on the sugar a bit and used half white and half brown. The texture after mixing was a bit questionable, but I shaped them the best I could anyway. After baking for 10 minutes the bottom of the cookie was cooked but the top was really really raw. I ended up having to put them under the broiler for a couple minutes. After the cookies were sufficiently cooked and cooled, they more or less fell apart. They were thin, flat and very fragile - the edges were nice and crisp but the middle fell apart easily. I'm eating one with a fork at the moment. The cookie's flavour is quite good but the texture/consistency is horrible. I would recommend finding another recipe unless you like eating cookies with a fork!

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
This recipe is fabulous! The muffins are moist, light but not too fluffy, perfect sweetness and great flavour. I think these muffins are making my regular muffin rotation for sure. That said, I did make a few small changes. First, I was totally out of eggs, so I just subbed an extra 2 tbs. of milk and 1 tsp. of baking powder. I only had cinnamon sugar on hand so I mixed 2 full tbs. of it and 1 tbs. vanilla in with the apples. Instead of 3/4 cup of white sugar I used just under 1/2 brown and 1/4 white and skipped the topping. My batter was fairly thick and filled up 12 large muffin cups. They baked up beautifully in 25 mins. and my kitchen smells great!

Creamed Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This made a fantastic side dish - it both looked and tasted great! I served it with mashed potatoes, steamed veggies and pork chops in a mushroom sauce. I made couple small changes - I added some very thinly sliced red pepper and crumbled cooked bacon. Definitely cut down on the butter/margarine though, I would recommend that you only use the melted butter/margarine portion that is mixed with the bread crumbs.

Orange Dream Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
This cake was amazing. Seriously. It was moist, fluffy, the flavour was fabulous and both my bf and I adored it. I really like a more intense orange flavour, so I used the zest from a whole orange and added a orange juice/sugar glaze instead of the frosting. I also left out the lemon zest. Next time though, I will definitely cut down on the lemon juice as I found it left a biting aftertaste.

Grilled Salmon II

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Lol, after my boyfriend made this for me, I realized that it's essentially the same recipe as the Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon (on this site) that I've been making for ages. Seriously an awesome recipe. I've managed to convert non-salmon eaters with it. The spice is great (though we usually add extra) and the flavour is phenomenal whether you grill or bake.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
It's gloomy out and I really wanted to do something other than work. Well, I'm on my third batch of this lovely recipe and it's not even 4:00pm! Chewy insides and perfectly crisp outside. Seriously, just triple the recipe right away because you're going to want more. These were all done by hand and the dough is easy to work with. I've made a few variations - brushed melted margarine instead of an egg wash, spritzed the oven walls once or twice, I added some basil and thyme to one loaf, onions and cheese to another etc. Very versatile recipe and sure to please.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
This was a decent starter recipe. Definitely needs the addition of vanilla, cinnamon and a touch more sugar to make it 5 star. With those additions, I now have a fabulous, moist, and very large banana bread that I would happily serve to guests for breakfast with a good cup of coffee.

Drew's World Famous Triple Rush Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
I was inspired to try this out after reading some of the reviews. I couldn't find my Ghirardelli hazelnut hot chocolate so I melted a 1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips in just over a 1/2 cup of milk then added just under a tsp of hazelnut instant coffee. Added another 1/2 cup of milk to even out the sweetness and sprinkled on some cinnamon. Delicious!

Scrambled Eggs Done Right

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
The salad dressing idea seemed a little strange so I tried the mayo version. I think it overpowered the egg taste way too much for my liking. Not something I'd want to try again though.

West Indian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Dish was alright - not a big hit with me, though the bf liked it. I did cut down on the bbq sauce a bit though. After reading some of the reviews I'd just like to add that West Indian refers to the West Indies aka the Caribbean. NOT India. And yes, West Indian food is a nice mixture of Indian, African, Chinese, Persian, Spanish, French and English cuisine. :)

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
I used this as a base for sausage and cheddar muffins. I did have to tweak it to adjust for savory, rather than sweet, muffins. I cut the sugar to 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and used just a splash more than 1/4 cup of oil (just to make sure it stayed moist). I used 1/2 cup of sausage and a full cup of shredded cheese. The mix was getting a bit too dry so I cut back to 1 3/4 cups of flour. I baked at 375 for about 18 min. The result was moist and tasty. The texture was also perfect for savory muffins - less cake-like and more bread-like. Would definitely try the recipe as is for sweet muffin recipes though :)

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
Made this for a 9" chocolate layer cake. As I was mixing (and taste testing), I noticed two things: you would need more milk to deal with 2 cups of sugar and that 2 cups of sugar would be almost unbearably sweet. I ended up using 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup pb, 3+ tbs milk and less than 1 1/3 cup of sugar. With these changes it was still peanut buttery and not over the top sugary.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
Dense, chocolaty and delicious. I used a rich chocolate cake mix, chocolate pudding (a larger pkg than called for) and skor mini chips. I baked it in 2 9" pans (there was some spillover) for about 45 min at 350. I covered it with peanut butter frosting.

Spiced Yogurt Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Have made this twice now. The recipe, as written, is fairly decent. We all thought it was a bit too bland, heavy, and very sweet. The second time, it was great. Instead of butter, I used 1/2 cup oil and 1/4 cup yogurt. Used only 1 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I also increased all of the spices a tad. Instead of buttering and flouring the pans (I used 2 loaf pans), I buttered and then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar.
