Bacon Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Update #2: tried this again using 2 cups flour, 4 cups shredded cheese, 1 egg and a big of eggbeaters, 3/4 cup milk + 1/4 cup veg oil, and 3 massive sausage links & it worked out great!! Update: I can't believe this recipe hasn't been more popular - I made a batch and gave some to the neighbours and they went nuts. Everyone thinks I'm an incredible chef now haha. Please take some of my changes into consideration, especially if you like cheese! The second time I made this, I made it the same as the below listed changes except instead of onion powder I used 1/2 cup diced onion and 6 slices of bacon rather than 4. My family loves them! -- I wanted to just do half the recipe but it ended up making 10 muffins for me. I used 1 cup flour, 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (my parents are cheese lovers), 4 bacon strips and threw in a bit of real bacon bits, 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk & the 2 tablespoons veg oil, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 tablespoon sugar, some salt, some garlic powder, some paprika, some onion powder; only baked for 13-14 min. Thanks!!

Caramel Pecan Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
It was easy to make and they turned out wonderfully. They look great and taste great. I followed the recipe exactly and it made 40 cookies! I was surprised. I used the smaller sized rolos though that you can buy in a bag so maybe I was using less dough? They look just as big as in the picture though. Freezing the rolos for an hour or so beforehand is a good idea - I did this and no caramel leaked out.

Cranberry Nut Bread II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
FANTASTIC! A couple changes: 1/4 cup applesauce instead of butter, 1 cup pecans, 1 cup craisins (poured boiling water over the craisins for 15 min prior to using). I put a foil tent over and removed it during the last 7 minutes of cooking. It looked & tasted amazing! Thanks chef! Update: I wanted to make this again but I only had about a half a cup of craisins, so I made half the recipe (with the aforementioned changes) and instead of orange juice (didn't have any), I used diet cranberry pop and made 12 pink muffins that look so cute!

Egg-Free Bonbon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
With a few changes, this was great! They look so pretty too. I chopped up cherries and added them to the batter. My family likes nuts so I added walnuts as well. Before putting them in the oven, I mixed sugar and walnuts together and dipped the up side of the balls to the mixture. They look very festive! :)

Stained Glass Window Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
These were really cool! My sister and I had fun making them. We added more sugar & flour both - more flour because we used a lot of food colouring. We also used less milk (about 3 tbsp total). Used jolly ranchers and found that the holes couldn't be too small or else it doesn't work!!! Make sure they're about an inch in diameter.

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This was my first time making stuffed peppers and my family loved them! My sister wished I added cheese to the stuffing though. I guess it all depends on your personal preference. I also made 3/4 of a cup of rice instead of 1/2 a cup, and it still only filled 4 peppers. I was using large green peppers though and wanted them to be really full.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
I really liked this recipe! I did make some changes though. If I hadn't done it in a 9 x 9 square pan, I think they would have been much too thin. I made the crust, baked for 15 minutes only, I upped the filling flour to 4 tbsp and the lemon juice to 1/3 cup, added 3 drops of pink food colouring (they looked really cute); and then baked for about 20 more minutes. My co-workers really enjoyed them and a few asked for the recipe :)

Taco Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
I made this for my mom and dad early on Wednesday, refrigerated it overnight before baking, popped it in the oven while they were at work on Thurs for about 30 min at 350, and they both loved it. I was upstairs studying and my mom called down "Jes! Come here for a minute" and she asked me if I'd make it for her next week to take in to her work potluck! They were quite impressed. I did make a few slight alterations. I baked the pillsbury pastry for 10 min at 350. Then, I browned the beef with green, red, & yellow peppers + diced onion, drained it, added taco seasoning and two big scoops of helluva dip, mixed that all together, tossed it into the 9 x 9 pan with the pastry on the bottom, put a very thin layer of helluva dip on top, crushed nacho chips and covered, put on some cheese and voila. They're big helluva dip fans so that could be why they enjoyed it so much! lol

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Terrific :) I put the fries in a large tupperware and mix them all up with the seasonings/oil, then place them on an aluminum foil-lined baking tray, bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes - flip them and then do another 15-20 mins. Thanks!!

Crunchy Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
I must be an idiot or something, but I did not find this recipe easy to make AT ALL! Well, everything went well up until the chocolate came into play. I used 2 cups rice krispies like suggested, and I put the mixture in the freezer for 20 min before making the balls, then I made balls, stuck toothpicks in them, and froze them for another 20ish min, THEN I tried melting the choc with a couple teaspoons of butter instead of shortening, and boy oh boy was that ever a mistake - the chocolate burnt and was all clumpy and weird! So I melted more chocolate without butter, then it was such a challenge to cover the balls, such a mess, the toothpicks would break off and the balls would get deformed. They look cute now that all is said and done, but it was messy and stressed me out!! lol Thanks for the recipe though, mm :)

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
This is great! I bake for 60 minutes at 325 and it turns out perfectly. I pour the glaze over with about 15 minutes left. I also added a bit of extra zest. It looks store bought - so pretty!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Wonderful!!! My mom is THE pickiest person - (it is so hard to impress her even though she herself doesn't bake or cook!!) - and she loved it! :) That's how I know it's a great recipe. I brushed the bottom crust with milk before putting the apples in (used 8 smaller sized red apples) and poured most of the mixture on top, saving about 1/3 for going over the top crust. I also used margarine instead of butter.

Cool. Used leftover chicken fried rice plus a can of maple leaf canned chicken - my fam never even notices the difference. Also used broccoli instead of mushrooms.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I am SOO excited - I'm in shock by how much my dad enjoyed this!!! He's always easy to please but he went on and on and on about how amazing this was! Here's what I did: mixed 3/4 cup ketchup, 3/4 cup honey, 1/2 cup soy sauce, and some minced garlic; cooked the mixture on the stove top until boiling and reduced heat. Put carrots and 3 bone in skinless chicken breasts in my crock pot, poured the sauce over top, let cook on high for 1 hr, then on low for another 3.5-4 hrs, then on high for the last hour and added broccoli and cauliflower during the last hour. Served with chicken fried rice!
