Ground Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
So awesome. Added yellow, red & orange diced pepper & onion to the meat mixture (had no taco seasoning so I threw in a bunch of random spices); instead of yogurt/sour cream I use HELLUVA DIP - it adds a great flavour. Mixed that with the chicken soup and cheese. Filled 5 9'' flour tortillas, fastened the tortillas with toothpicks (great tip so they stay together), sprayed my glass pan with pam prior to putting the enchiladas in and voila!

Lattice Chicken Potpie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
OMG...loved this! I don't eat meat but I made it for my parents because my dad always loved Swiss Chalet's chicken pot pie...and wow, even my mom who isn't a fan of pot pie said it was very yummy! I used cream of chicken soup, some canned potatoes, sauteed some carrots & onions with the chicken, steamed some broccoli, added drained canned corn...and I think that's it. I used the cheese too. It was so easy. I used a little over one thing of pillsbury crescent rolls and didn't make the lattice, just a pie crust.

Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Awesome!! I've made this twice nw because my mom LOVES them - usually my dad is the tart fanatic but she was crazy about this recipe. Following changes were made: added a dash of vanilla, 3/4 cup pecans in half the mixture and 3/4 cup raisins in the other half rather than raisins/other nuts. Also, I only had to bake for 15-17 minutes. Thank for the fabulous recipe - it is soooo easy.

Cheese Onion Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
I was only making two big pieces - I used 1/2 cup mozza cheddar cheese, 2 T parm (the Kraft kind), 1/4 cup Mayo, about a teaspoon of minced garlic, mixed it all together and put it on the bread which I brushed with oil. Great :)

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
This made 12 normal sized muffins and 8 mini muffins for me. They baked perfectly, no one has tried them yet though. I was tempted to add vanilla or cinnamon but my dad forced me to follow a recipe without modifying for once lol.

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 :)

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.

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
Easy & got rave reviews from the family. Added some spices to the beef and some sauce to the bottom of the pan. Could use more noodles next time. Might've been my fault!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Hmm so I just realized that I forgot the baking soda but...I halved the recipe, added 2 tsp baking POWDER, 1 TABLEspoon (instead of teaspoon) of vanilla....and I tossed in some mini M&Ms in addition to the chipits. They turned out very delicious. I took them out after 11 minutes and that seemed to be the perfect time. Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Great recipe! I added a can of corn and used a larger can of sliced stewed tomatoes as opposed to the diced tomatoes. I also added cheese to the mixture. I made one small pan with the tortilla chip topping and one without because I was afraid after reading some negative reviews, however, my family loved the tortilla topping - my parents both went back for seconds. I only baked it for about 17 minutes. They will try the dish without the tortilla topping another time but they definitely enjoyed it with so you can't go wrong either way I don't think! :) Thanks for a delicious recipe.

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
The onion pieces definitely burnt but it was fine - they still tasted great. I marinated them for a couple hours and then put them on tin foil sprayed with pam. I think the temp or the heating time, maybe both, is off. Mine definitely didn't take 40 min and I stirred them after 15 min. I also added a touch of pepper, salt, & italian seasoning. Yum!

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Here's what I did: crunched up fudgeo cookies (2 layers from the bag - put them in a ziplock bag and mashed them all up), made a layer using them in a 9 x 9 pan, but that pan in the freezer and took my homemade ice cream out of the freezer at that time so it would soften a little bit, then I only had 1/2 cup of chocolate sauce so I added half a leftover milk chocolate bunny rabbit from Easter and melted it in the microwave for 1 minute -stirred all that, stirred in 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter. Left everything for about 20 min so the choc/pb mixture had time to cool a bit. Then I took my pan out of the freezer, put on a layer of ice cream, layered the pb/choc mixture on top of the ice cream, topped with about 2 cups of dream whip (just like cool whip basically), added on a few more crunched up fudgeos to the top and now it's in the freezer. It looks delicious and I can't wait to eat it. Just thought I'd share how I compensated for a lack of ingredients! Update: it ended up being delicious!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
It turned out great with some changes. I was making it just for my 2 parents and here are the ingredients I used: 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast 1/4 cup butter 20 g package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix just under 1/2 cup ginger ale + a bit of water 1 can cream of mushroom soup 4 ounces fat free herb & garlic cream cheese 1/2 pound penne pasta They loved it and it was easy. I cut the chicken in strips before putting it in a baking dish, added broccoli and chopped red peppers to the sauce while in the pot, then poured it all over, covered with tin foil and baked for 55 minutes. Oh and before putting the chicken in the baking dish, I sprinked down garlic & italian seasoning. Put some pepper on the breasts too. Thanks for a fab recipe!!

Baked Beans, Texas Ranger

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
I have made this recipe a couple of times and although my family members aren't big on beans, they enjoyed them. I used 2 cans of Heinz maple beans and 5 honey garlic sausage links this past time. I never use vinegar and I remove the lid of my dutch oven with 30 min left of cooking time. I also cut the chili powder to 1 tbs. Thanks :)

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!

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.

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.
