Apple-Cran-Apricot Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Awesome! I couldn't find any dried cranberries, so I used copped dried apricots, and they are delish!! I brought 2 dozen to work :) Oh, and I've never used cardamom in this recipe. I never have any on-hand! UPDATE: When I make this recipe, I often use a combination of dried apricots, cranberries and raisins. SO yummy

Barley Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
This recipe is a keeper. I have made it many times and have used regular rice in the place of the barley as well (just to switch it up). Great way to use up mushrooms. Delicious as a side dish or a main.

BBQ Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Oh my gosh, this smells so awesome when cooking! I use about a 4lb shoulder and grab them now whenever they come on sale. I don't bother doubling the sauce and use 1 cup of each ketchup and BBQ sauce. I also use real mustard instead of dried. I shred the pork a few hours before I want to serve so that the meat has a chance to soak up some sauce. I serve it on Onion buns with coleslaw on top! YUM! I brought this to a party and my friends called it the Endless Depth of Meat. Awesome :)

Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
This is one of the first recipes I ever made from this site. I couldn't remember where I got the recipe and tried to reproduce it a couple times without success. I finally came across it today and I'm making it right now. Here are the couple changes I made: used 1 cup brown minute rice, about 1/4 cup of butter, 1/2 a large brick of cubed cheddar + 3 Kraft singles, 1 can of mushroom soup, no milk and Premium Plus crackers on top. Awesome! UPDATE: If I try to make this without the recipe, it always fails

Cream of Vegetable soup

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
Simply awesome :) Update: I have made this soup several times now and each time it's great. I always use cauliflower, carrots and potatoes, plus whatever other veggies I have on-hand. Broccoli, celery, mushrooms, sweet potato. Delish. And always so soo creamy! YUM!

Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
I made this yesterday for a Sunday night Game of Thrones get-together. I nearly doubled the peanut butter, I switched the confectioners sugar for fine granulated sugar (what was on-hand) and omitted the peanut butter cup decoration. The pie was a HUGE hit :) Next time I might fold in the whole tub of Cool Whip and have no topping.

Coconut Ambrosia Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2013
I hadn't made this in years! I use a large can of fruit salad in place of the mandarins, pineapple and cherries. If you leave a bit of juice in the fruit, you can omit the milk as well. I do it this way to keep it extra simple.

Apple Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
Thanks to IBNITWIT who suggested NOT peeling the apples!!! It was a HUGE time saver and the taste is great! This cake is fabulously moist. I'm going to take it to the office because I can't possibly eat that much cake in a day or two. Thanks for this recipe :) UPDATE: Was asked by several co-workers for the recipe :)

I used 2 onions, a bag of baby carrots, sautéed fresh sliced mushrooms and dried parsley. Cooked at 300 for around 3 hours. Will definitely make again.

These muffins are really outstanding. They are very chocolatey and the zucchini is delicious. A keeper!

Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I used this recipe for the first time last night. I made a double batch because I had a lot of fresh cranberries to use. The only change I made was to use the rind of 1 whole lemon chopped finely and the juice of 1 lemon in place of the lemon extract. They are PERFECT. Just enough sweetness and tartness to make a perfect muffin. The regular sized muffins came out of the paper liners with ease and the mini muffins popped out of the pan which I sprayed with cooking spray. The mini muffins were a HIT at work! This recipe is a keeper!

Shreddies No-Bake Peanut Butter Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I had really high hopes of these no-bake squares. I made them for Canadian Thanksgiving this past weekend and they turned out VERY crumbly. The whole thing pretty much fell apart. And there was by no means enough chocolate to cover the top. When I tried to spread what little chocolate I had, the crumbly under-mixture ended up mixed in. The taste was good overall, but the presentation was terrible and I doubt I will make these again.

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
This pie was delish. I found it a little sweet for my taste (which is quite shocking to me) but I think it could have used more peaches. Some of mine had gone bad by the time I wanted to make the pie, so it was a little lacking in peaches. Overall, a GREAT pie!

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
AWE-SOME! As some other reviewers suggested, I used a can of coconut milk and the balance of regular milk. I also covered the pie with whipped topping and additional toasted coconut. Not only was it a show-stopper, but it was soooo delicious. I will be making this one again for sure!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I used the ingredients as directed, except I added a bit less water because I wanted it more like stew and I used a leek instead of onion because I had fresh leeks on-hand. It was really delicious! Mine burnt on the bottom of the pot a little, and I found that there were too many dumplings (and BOY do those little buggers ever EXPAND!!) but overall the taste was great. In the future I might use 1 can of Chicken soup and 1 can of mushroom soup, simply because I prefer the flavor. I cut the chicken (only 2 breasts, but I should have used a bit more) into pieces and browned them a little with the leek to speed up the process. The whole thing took only 1 hour.
