Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I placed a square of Cadbury Dark chocolate out of the oven on each piece that would be cut into squares when the brownies cooled. Also, I followed Sandy's custom version and cut down on the butter in favour of more peanut butter. YUM!

Amy's Healthy Fruity

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
Yum! Now, I only had vanilla yogurt on hand which inevidably sweetened this up and I also didn't have any soy milk powder so I skipped it... But yummy none the less :)

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
I am a mother of 2 small children, so when I saw the slowcooker adaptation that MAZZO did for this recipe, I leapt at the idea of 'taking the easy way out'. The added bonus of their adaptation was the honey glazed carrots. I was very disappointed with this recipe done in the slowcooker with the addition of baby carrots. I found that neither the ham nor the carrots really got a strong flavour. I decided this recipe deserved fair shake so I prepared it as written and surprise-surprise, it was oodles better. Since I still really wanted to accompany this recipe with honey glazed carrots, after the ham came out of the oven, I poured the remaining glaze into a small sauce pan with a small bag of baby carrots and boiled them together for 8-10ish minutes. The carrots were a dream. Thank you, MAZZO, for suggesting the addition of carrots, but when I make this recipe again, I will stick to the original and prepare my carrots as a seperate dish :)

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
I scaled down the ingredients, quatered and seeded the pepperoncini, sliced everything thinly and made these into a wrap appetizer. Sooo delicious! I later made a whole wrap for myself. I spread the cream cheese on one side and the mashed avocado on the other. I found that when I did this I never got a bite with both avocado and cream cheese so next time I will keep tp the centre of the wrap. I'll start with the cream cheese, then spread the avocado, then lettuce, pepperoncini, cukes, tomatoes, sprouts and dressing :)

Fat Pete's Fudge

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Very tasty! I'm a first time fudge maker, and a few things happened that I'm not sure were supposed to: 1) Because of the large quantities of ingredients in this recipe, I used my cheapo stock pot so I would have room to accomodate everything. Even though I turned the heat down to medium low and stirred constantly, my butter/milk kept scortching. 2) There was no way that after I had squished the fudge into the 13x9 pan, room temp peanut butter was going to incorporate itself into the fudge no matter how much knife swirling I did. I melted the peanut butter in the microwave, poured it over the top and then swirled it in. It tastes delightful upon initial sampling, and once I cut it up a little more, I'll let you know how it holds together

Butter Cake

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Delicious! Like MACGREGORS said, this cake holds together and shapes very well. If you're using fondant, make sure you chill your shaped cake before applying your thin layer of icing so all that effort you put into shaping your cake doesn't crumble away... Learned that lesson thae hard way :S

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
My baby brain kicked in with this one and when the recipe called for "bread crumbs", I assumed it meant coarse bread crumbs (like croutons). So I didn't get the desire effect of the zucchini staying crisp. Regardless of my blunder, the flavour was good.

Banana Fritters

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
Not a 100% fair review since I added more banana than the recipe called for because the top rated review recommended it. I think that it was this reason that the middles ended up very doughy. Also, The top review recommended dropping this into the oil using a 1/3 cup measure which made the fritters too big to cook thoroughly without burning the outside. If I were to try this recipe again, I would stick to the original.

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I'm going to toot my own horn here and say that I'm a pretty good cook, but mashed potatoes were always my Achilles Heel. When I read this recipe I though "Pfft! That's how I make my mashed potatoes more or less! How could these be any different?". I don't know how warming the milk makes all the difference, but it really does. My potatoes were so smooth and creamy. I always use seasoning salt on potatoes because it tastes so much better than regular salt. And sometimes I even leave the skin on the potatoes because I like the dimention it adds to the flavour, but never when I'm serving my MIL. I think she'd swoon if she saw skins in her mashed potatoes ;)

Pecan Pie Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
This is a really weird cake to make... I'm still not sure if I did it right. There should really be some description of what the cake should look like/move like/feel like before you pour the second layer onto the first. That being said, it was tasty... Whatever it was...
