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.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
I was really nervous about this recipe after a few reviews, however I'm delighted with the outcome. A few comments: my oven has a tendency to overheat (it's really old) but I still baked them at 400 degrees and it was fine, although they were done after 8 minutes. Secondly, the batter was really mushy and I thought it was going to be difficult to work with so I refrigerated it for a few minutes before putting cookie balls on the pan and that made a big difference. I flattened them slightly and they looked really mushy and weird going into the oven, but they came out beautifully. I only had 1 banana but it was really big and I think it was just under a cup, so I tossed in a bit of applesauce (probably about 1/4 of a cup or a little more). I also used margarine instead of shortening. I separated the dough in half and added raisins to one half and semi-sweet chips to the other half. Both turned out great! I also added a dash of vanilla extract just out of habit. Thanks for a fantastic recipe.

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!!

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
Terrific! I browned the turkey in a skillet with chopped carrots, onion, green & orange peppers. I only used 1 cup of water and added a can of tomato paste which made it a great consistency. Served over penne noodles with some shredded cheese on top. I didn't have any cumin. It made quite a lot.

Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
Super easy & my dad loved it. I had half a can of raspberry pie filling left over from a layer cake. I made the same amount of filling and put half on the top and half on the bottom. It seemed to be just enough. Thanks!

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!

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!!

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!!

Sandy's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
I baked 2 8 inch cakes and 6 cupcakes - the layers baked beautifully and smell so delicious, although I have yet to try the cake because it is for Mother's Day. I filled the pans about 3/4 full - this was just the right amount. I greased the pans with Pam and used a little flour on the bottom and had no trouble removing the cakes from the pan after 10 minutes. I used Rich Chocolate Frosting for the outside and a raspberry jam pie filling for the middle, as per my Mom's favourite tastes. I will edit my review after it is tasted on Sunday :) Thanks Sandy!

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 :)

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

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.

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!

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 :)

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!

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 :)
