Marzipan

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Really good recipe, although I tweaked mine when I made it. Doubled all the ingredients, except the eggs, I still used 2. I whisked the egg whites until frothy, and then mixed those into the rest of the ingredients by hand, rather than using a blender. Once it was sticking together, I just kneaded it on my countertop like I was making bread, until it was of uniform texture and well mixed. To grind the almonds, I used my food processor, it worked really well. I really wanted a strong almond flavour for the recipe I was making the marzipan for, so I doubled the along extract...next time I will probably add a little more. All in all, this turned out really well, even with my changed. Had a smooth, firm texture, nice colour, and great taste! Will be making more this weekend for my Christmas baking projects! *****As a side note, please read the directions and ingredients before making this recipe! If you have issues with using raw eggs then use a different recipe! It's not fair to rate a recipe low if you do not like the ingredients called for, just pick another one to make, there are plenty of recipes to be found online!*****

Banket

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
This is such an amazing recipe! It's not Christmas without almond roll, as we call it. My Dutch Grandmother used to send it every Christmas, and I can't get it where I live. I had bought a tonne of almonds on sale and thought I'd give it a try. The pastry is flaky and tender. I used the amonds to make marzipan from a recipe I found on this site. Just delicious! Next time though I won't coat the logs with sugar, I found that the sugar melted and burned just a little on the bottom of the roll. Top with the occasional glace cherry in red and green, and voila! If I could give more stars I would, thanks for posting such a great recipe, you brought back some great family memories!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
This is a really great recipe for peanut butter cookies! Forgiving too, as I messed it up! I only had one egg, so for the other one I substitued 4 tbsp mayo, and increased the flour just a bit. Also added one tsp of vanilla. Rolled into almost golf-ball sized balls and flattened with a fork both ways, baked for 11 minutes. They are crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside...wonderful recipe!

Almond Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
This is such a good recipe! I was looking for ways to use some frozen rhubarb, I didn't want to make the usual pie, muffins, or rhubarb crisp. This recipe is SO good, makes a very flavourful cake that is very moist. Also freezes well! I made a couple changes...added 1 tsp of amond extract to the batter along with the vanilla, and also added a simple icing sugar/milk glaze to the top of the cake after baking and cooling. SO GOOD! We're looking forward to trying this recipe with different fruits too, but will definately be making this again and again, this recipe now has a home in my permanent recipe file!

Mushroom Barley Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
This is really good! Much better than I expected! I was looking for something other than a rice side dish, and I changed this recipe to suit what I had on hand. Used low sodium chicken broth, didn't use mushrooms as I forgot to buy them at the store, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp Old Bay instead of salt, 1/2 tsp dried parsley. Baked for 80 minutes or so, then took it out the oven, added about 1/4 cup more chicken stock, maybe less, and 1/4 c of grated parmesan cheese, then back in the oven for about 10 minutes or so. This was super flavourful, creamy, and delicious! Even my husband and 3 year old loved it, my son is asking for barley again today! I tasted it before addding the parmesan cheese, and it was amazing before my addition. I will definately make this again! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Raspberry Tiramisu

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Really good! I changed a little, used some Chambord liquer in the raspberry sauce. I liked it a lot, but my husband didn't like the texture, just not his thing I suppose.

Pistachio Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Love this recipe! Added extra spices to the bread crumb/pistachio mixture, and as I am not really a big fan of honey and I didn't have any in the house, I substituted corn syrup for it. That worked out great for us, we ended up with really juicy, flavourful chicken!

Blueberry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
A nice, dense cake, but that's what I expect from a pound cake! Good flavour, moist...next time I would skip sprinkling the sugar on the pan before baking, I found it difficult to remove the cake from the pan.

Rhubarb Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This was really good! I did make some changes though, I doubled the batch and was short a little rhubard, so I added a can of crushed pineapple, drained the juice from it and used the pineapple juice in place of some of the water. I also added one package of Certo to help with the thickening. This is a really good recipe! With doubling it, I got 12 3/4 250ml jars.

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies III

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
These were really good, better than I thought they would be! I made 2 changes-only used 2 1/2 cups of sugar, and I made then in a 9x13 pan instead of individually, then once cooled cut into bars. This was my first time tasting a no-bake cookie like this, I made them with my step-son and it was just too hot to have the oven on. We are looking forward to making these again, they are great!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
I made a double batch of these, using 4 VERY ripe bananas that I hd frozen. Because I was short on bananas I threw in about 1 1/4c or so of chocolate chips along with the nuts. No worries, they still had great banana flavour...but the chocolate chips were still a nice addition in my opinion...but I like everything better with chocolate in it! Really great muffin recipe, I will definately make these again!

Zucchini Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This was my first time making fritters, and they were absolutely delicious! My husband and I were eating them almost as fast as they came out of the frying pan. A couple changes I made, doubled the cumin, added 1 tsp of curry powder, 2 tbsp of grated parmesan cheese, no butter, and only used 1 tbsp of sugar. Like other reviewers say, these did soak up a lot of oil while they were frying, but the end result was sooooo good!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
This recipe is sooooo good! I followed the recipe exactly, except for one little thing, I only had 2 very ripe bananas so that was what I used in place of the amount called for. There was still a good banana flavour in the finished loaf. I've made this a few times now, and it's so easy and good...sometimes I change it up and add chocolate chips to it for the kids or some walnuts or pecans...always delicious and doesn't last long in our house. Thanks for sharing!!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Seriously good recipe! I followed the recipe exactly, but seeing as I have no breadmaker I had to do it the old fashioned way, by hand. I got 12 big sized rolls out of it...hamburger bun size. This is my new "go to" recipe for rolls, can't wait to try them as cinnamon pecan buns!

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
This recipe was a really good starting point. The pastry came out delicious, very flaky and was a great compliment to the filling. I used a milk wash on the top to make it a golden colour. I made a few changes, I wanted a creamier sauce so I added some half and half in place of some of the chicken broth. I also added some different spices...dried dill weed, cajun seasoning, and lots of garlic powder. I also added mushrooms to the pie, pan fried first so my sauce didn't get soupy once the pie was cooked. Lots of fresh ground pepper too! Will definately make again with leftover chicken or turkey, this was worth the LOT of time it took to make. I knew it would take lots of time, so I doubled the recipe and made 2, one to freeze and re-heat later on when I don't have time to cook.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
This was a good recipe, but I did make some changes so I am reviewing as I made it, not as it is written. I used equal parts of sour cream, mayo, and buttermilk in order to add the buttermilk flavour and make it pourable. Lots of garlic and dill, I made this for a green salad at a family get together, and everyone loved it, a few even asked for the recipe. Great flavour, even better the next day.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This was a pretty good recipe, the cookies came out crispy on the outside. I added a handful or two of raisins and a whole bag of chocolate chips instead of butterscotch ones to the dough, but that was the only change I made to the recipe. I like them softer so I let them bake for about 13 minutes. This isn't the recipe I was looking for, but it was still a good one that I'll keep and make again. Maybe in addition to the raisins and chocolate chips I'll add some toasted walnuts next time.
