Best Ever Granola

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This granola is totally addictive. I added about a cup of chopped almonds, and about 1 cup of each dried cherries, dried apricots and raisins. I cooked it 2hrs, stirring every 15-20 minutes. I also used equal parts of banana and prunes, not dates, and added some coconut. YUM! You can add exactly the type of add-ins that you like!

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This recipe is fantastic! I added 1 bottle of beer to the 3 cups of water, and still added a bit more water to cover the corned beef. As others did, I put the beef at the bottom of the crock pot and added the cabbage only in the last 3 hours of cooking. Everything came out perfect! The potatoes and carrots were NOT over-cooked and the cabbage was just right. My boyfriend and I raved about the flavor and texture of the meat and veggies through the whole meal... not something we do every day!!! AWESOME and super simple recipe. I will make this again for sure!

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I have used this recipe more often than any other for bread in my machine. I had the notion this morning to put fresh herbs in the loaf I'm going to make for Christmas! :) Once the dough cycle finishes, I plop the dough onto a floured surface and cut in 2 with a large knife. I DON'T shape or dimple, I just invert the dough lumps onto parchment paper, so the floured side is up and bake after it rises. Perfect every time. And I'm sure it'll be even more awesome with fresh herbs!!!

Endless Depth of Meat (BBQ Pulled Pork)

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
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!

Snowball Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I made this last week and covered the top with shaved white chocolate instead of coconut and it was a HIT at my dinner party! It took about 1h15m to cook.

Beef Barley Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
I made this for a second time with much better results. I used more beef and made sure to use wine to get a nice depth of flavour. I'm eating leftovers from the freezer today for lunch and it's just as yummy as when I first made it! I will be making this again!

Green Eggs and Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I wasn't sure about this at first, but the taste only gets better as it sits! I had only a tiny bit of spinach, so I added some cooked chopped broccoli. I also added some garlic to the onions, which I cooked in a little butter, before mixing with the broccoli/spinach. I mixed the baking mix, milk and eggs separately and then stirred everything together, so as to get a more chunky texture. Added the ham and cheese on top of the 9 x 9 glass dish. I cooked it 35 mins @ 325 and an additional 15 mins @ 350 because it was totally jiggly!

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Who would have thought that something with this much spinach could taste so good?!?! I used a whole package of spinach, even though it looked like a lot, 7 medium sized potatoes, 1/2 cup butter 1 small container of sour cream. 2 chopped green onions, 2 cloves garlic. I chose not to put any dill in it. I had no cheddar, so I put 4 Kraft singles on top, covered with some crumbled goat feta, and baked at 400 for about 30 minutes along with a huge fillet of salmon. Absolutely amazing and everyone loved it!

Honey Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I made the batter last night and baked some up this morning. The batter looked really good. The All Bran soaked up the liquid and became very moist. I used 1 cup of raisins and 1 cup of dried cranberries. Unfortunately, I was running short on time and decided to make both jumbo and regular sized muffins at the same time. I took the regular ones out after about 19 minutes and they looked ok, but I didn't taste one yet. I had to leave the jumbo ones in for a while longer (while I was in the shower) and when the buzzer rang, they looked a little overdone. Sure enough, now that I'm at work and eating one, the underside of the top is a little darker than it should be and it tastes overcooked. So I'm guessing my 6 jumbo muffins are basically a waste. I will try the smaller ones when I go home for lunch. I will probably make these again, but with some alterations. Maybe add some banana puree and/or applesauce to add some more interest to the taste.

Quick Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I actually used another recipe from this site, but came across this one afterward, and realized it was a little closer to what I had made. I used a can of diced tomatoes, as it was all I has on hand. I added about 1/2 a red pepper as well as some cumin, chili powder and red pepper flaked. A little boring, but very economical and very healthy!

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
Good, but a little bland as-is. I used diced tomatoes with spices, added half a red pepper chopped with the onions, real garlic and brown minute rice. I served myself a small bowl as-is and then added cumin, chili powder, and a tsp chili peppers. Much more interesting, bit maybe lacking a bit of ground beef or something

Canadian Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
These were really great! Super chewy! I used real ginger and they are quite spicy but so yummy. They're just like Gramdma Molases candies you get at Halloween here in Quebec. They same brand makes a cookie as well. These ones were WAY better than their packaged ones!

Never Fail Applesauce Spice Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Delish. I wasn't sure at first... it was a little dry. But once it sat for a few hours with the icing, everything softened up and it was really moist and delicious. A keeper since I know I have a ton more applesauce to get rid of! I use raisins, so it's similar to carrot cake. I also used sweetened applesauce and still didn't find the cake isn't too sweet.

Falafel Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
This was really yummy and whipped up really quickly. I drained the chickpeas, used a bit more garlic, along with about 1/2 cup of quick cooking oats and at least 1 cup of breadcrumbs to get it to a consistency that looked right. Made little "balls" with 2 spoons and deep friend them till golden. They didn't quite get as crispy as I would have liked. I served them in pitas with tzatziki. Delish!

A keeper since I know I have a ton more applesauce to get rid of! I put raisins in mine instead of nuts, so it was very similar to carrot cake. I also used sweetened applesauce because that's what I had. The cake wasn't too sweet even with the additional sweetener.

French Onion Soup VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
HOLY COW this was soooo good! As a child, I was never fond of onions, but last week, on an impulse, I bought 10 lbs of onions for $1.49. Then I needed to make something with them! My boyfriend had the ingenious idea to make soup! So I found this recipe and on Friday night I whipped it up. It was fantastic! The wine really added a nice touch. I used all the same ingredients, but the quantities might have varied a little. I'll be making this one again for sure! Oh, there were 2 soups leftover (with bread and cheese and everything) which we ate the next day. The bread was totally soaked with the soup liquid and it threw the whole thing into a new dimension of deliciousness! I did cook mine quite a bit longer than suggested by the recipe, about 30 minutes of cooking the onions alone, and then I boiled the soup a little to cook the onions a bit more and to reduce the liquid a bit.
