Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
I love this recipe! I did leave out the nuts, but other than that I followed the brownie recipe to the letter. I also left off the frosting and just dusted with icing sugar when cooled. I made a batch and within a day they had been eaten up! My husband and daughter love them. The second time I made them, I used peeled marrow (summer squash) instead of the zucchini and left out the salt. I had to drain the grated marrow a little, but the recipe worked a treat. This recipe will be used again and again.

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
What a delicious and smooth egg custard pie! It was a little on the sweet side, so it may be too sweet for some people's tastes. I didn't bother with scalding the milk, just added it cold. Very easy to make. Tastes best when served chilled. Yum yum! Is sure to become a favourite in our house.

Jalapeno Jelly

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
We had our first vegetable garden this year and grew a few too many Jalapenos! This recipe is ideal for using up quite a lot of them and it tastes great! It's quite sweet with a really good tangy kick. Very easy to make. I didn't bother with the food colouring or adding the chopped peppers at the end. Everyone who's tried it loves it!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
This recipe makes a nice, moist and dark chocolate cake. Very easy to make and great results. I've used it for two birthday cakes recently, using the fudge icing from the Buttermilk Chocolate Cake on this site. Great combination and no actual chocolate used, just cocoa powder. Enjoy!

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
These are great muffins that remind me of Lemon Drizzle Cake that is popular in England. I use half wholewheat flour instead of 100% all purpose. Really light and fluffy, with a great lemon flavour. Always gone within a day at our house!

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
OMG - these are fabulous! Very easy to make and taste delicious. I made my first batch with my four-year old daughter this morning - followed the recipe as is, but excluded the walnuts. The second batch is in the oven as we speak - experimenting with half wholewheat flour this time. I used a yellow zucchini (because that's what I have growing in the garden) and you can't see or taste the zucchini at all. Will be making these on a regular basis. They beat the zucchini brownies hands down!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
A very easy and very delicious cookie. It makes a nice-sized batch of moist cookies that we will no doubt be making on a regular basis.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Great recipe - very easy to follow. I only used one cup of pistachios and it was enough. I dipped them in melted white chocolate. They were just like biscotti you would buy in a cafe.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Delicious! Very chocolatey and fudgey. I used half white chocolate and half semi-sweet chips. Really good and very easy - highly recommended.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
This recipe made a great pie. I used the cornflour option and cheated with a ready-made pie shell. It only needed 3 bananas and I made sure I cooked the filling well. Contrary to some reviews, there was not a drop of `soup` in sight! The filling had a strong vanilla taste, which I liked. Very worthy of five stars!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
So easy and so yummy. I had a packet of cream cheese that needed using up, so this was perfect - all the other ingredients were pretty standard and always in the pantry. I made the recipe exactly as stated here - no changes needed at all. I will be making this one again, for sure!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
this recipe is excellent. i intentionally used normal sugar instead of icing sugar to great effect. yes the icing sauce was very sweet but i have to say it was very popular with everyone. there was a crunchy sugar aroma in my mouth which was a bit like chewing sand (or sugar) so i had to cook the sugar away for ages because my it was sweet but now its okay. drawback was too much icing. best cake i ever made.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
This recipe is so good! I used half of it as a base for a ginger and orange trifle. We ate the rest on it's own. It's so moist and delicious.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I opted not to do the freezer step - I figured that putting a hot cake into the freezer would mean the freezer would have to work harder to get back to temperature and therefore waste electricity. I'm sure doing this gets a moist cake, but not doing it also gets a moist and delicious cake and worthy of 5 stars. I'll be making this again very soon!

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
This recipe is a really useful base for a pot pie. I changed the seasoning, simply because I didn't have all the ingredients to hand, but kept the quantities of veg, meat and liquid the same. This works well with either a double or single crust. I've just put four of these in the freezer to use all that left over Christmas turkey!

Maple Walnut Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2014
These were delicious and very easy to make. I substituted pecans instead of walnuts, 2% milk instead of half and half and 2Tbsp maple syrup instead of extract, simply because that's what I had. I used a pastry brush to apply the glaze over the entire scone. I would definitely make them again. Thank you for sharing the recipe, Sandie!
