Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I use those Air Bake cookie sheets and found that I had to double my baking time. I also added 1/3 cup of chocolate chips to appease my pregnant taste buds. Peanut butter + Chocolate = GOODNESS :)

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
These weren't bad. The oatmeal flavour and texture didn't really show through nd the peanut butter tase was pretty mild. If you're looking for a more intense peanut butter and chocolate cookie, try Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with 1/3 cup chocolate chips from this site.

Kitty Litter Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
The overall effect and reaction you get from this cake is priceless... The taste is only so-so. I'm pretty sure it needs a saltier flavour to compliment all the bland sweet going on. If I were to make this again, I would use peanut butter sandwich cookies and/or butterscotch pudding. I hope I have occasion to make this again. I would love it if disgusting cake was actually dreamily delicious!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
The batter turns out way thicker than what I'm used to. The first pancake *poured* into a griddle preheated at a low heat browned on the outside long before it cooked on the inside. I added about another 1/4 cup of milk to the remaining batter which made it much easier to work with and they were still light, fluffy and tasty :)

Simple Country Ribs

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
I've made these ribs a dozen or so times now and I think I've finally perfected my technique. 1) These ribs are only as good as the BBQ sauce you choose to use. For me up here in Calgary (home of the Stampede... YAHOO), it's got to be Cattle Boyz. 2) I only use about half of the BBQ sauce required to boil. I always found that because the fat rendered down, no amount of boiling after removing the ribs left me with a sauce I'd want to baste with. 3) I let the ribs sit in the other half of the BBQ sauce for at least 30 minutes before grilling and baste & turn often when on the grill. These ribs always get devoured in a hurry with lots of props to the chef ;)

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
So easy to prepare and even easier to eat :) Do add a healthy sprinkling of chili powder to the mix. I served mine up with salsa and sour cream. YUM!

Beefy Chinese Dumplings

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
This is hardly an accurate review of this recipe. I had been given a recipe for Chicken Dumplings by an Oriental woman that I used to work with. She quoted the recipe from memory and spoke broken English so I assumed it was this reason that my dumlings were not as tasty as hers. I used parts of this recipe to to recreate her yummy dumplings. I substituted 1lb of ground chicken for 1.5lbs beef, 4-5 chopped green onions for regular onion, and sesame oil for vegetable oil. She always fried her dumplings but never said that she boiled them, so I tried boiling them first, then frying them over a medium low heat. I found that when you boiled them in a sauce pan, you had to stir until the water boiled again or a few would stick to the bottom, and if you fry the boiled dumplings on too high a heat, they stick. In the end I came to the conclusion that if you want to fry the dumplings, boiling isn't necessary. My co-workers dumplings are still the best, but these were pretty good

Oriental Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
The dip itself was incredibly salty even though I used low sodium soya sauce HOWEVER, when I paired it with Beefy Chinese Dumplings which is a rather unsalty dumpling, it tasted okay.

Alex's Raw Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
I got this recipe through the "Daily Dish" email. I read it and realised that I had pretty much everything on hand, so curiousity got the better of me and I gave it a try. I struggled with how to rate this recipe because I'm not a vegan or a complete naturalist I had to do some substituting, which I hate doing when trying a recipe for the first time. I don't even know what agave nectar is so I used honey like others suggested. I used 1% milk since that's what was in my fridge. I also only had sweetened coconut to work with and I assume that raw cocoa powder and Hershey or Fry's cocoa powder is the same thing. The texture was perfect. Nobody will ever mistake the flavour for Jello Chocolate pudding, but it was pleasant. Not too sweet, but it definitely qualifies to fill a sweet craving. My 2 yr old thought it was the bee's knees. I suppose I could try making this with chocolate milk or adding more honey or more banana... But in the grand scheme of things this recipe acomplishes what it was set out to do, be a healthier alternative.

Granola Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
I applied the same trick I learned in "Best Bread Machine Bread" from allrecipes. Mix your honey and warm water and pour it in your bread machine. Then, despite that fact that it flies in the face of what your bread machine instructions say, add the yeast and let it proof for 10 minutes. Then add your flour, oats, granola, salt and butter. By adding the yeast first you will have a super tall, light loaf. I had to add 3 tbsp of flour to make the dough less sticky. I also used half whole wheat flour, half white flour. And I didn't have golden raisins on hand so I used regular raisins. This is a really nice, subtly sweet loaf with just a hint of crunch. My kid liked it so much that she ate 2 big slices.

Brown Sugar Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I added the chocolate chips and omitted the nuts (we're not nut-brownie people). I was a little suspect as the batter was more of a dough consistency, but I squished it into the pan and pressed on. Once it was out of the oven, I cut a large chunk and topped the hot brownie with a scoop of vanilla icecream. If I had a little whipped cream and chocolate sauce, I would never need to go to Moxie's for their dreamy dessert ever again! I made sure to have some the next day to get and accurate taste of the flavours that this brownie had to offer. A little dry, but not insufferably so, and also a little salty. I think that this recipe works best as a component of a dessert moreso than if it were served alone.
