Cream Cheese Jalapeno Hamburgers

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
This tastes amazing! The only thing I found was using mustard, ketchup, relish etc. with these kind of took away from the cream cheese flavour. I would maybe just use a bit of mayo and veggies (lettuce, tomato, onion) and try to stay away from any over powering condiments/sauces.

BLT Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Wow, this was soooo good. As I was making it, I was starting to doubt the recipe as there aren't many ingredients and I wondered if the pizza would be bland without sauce. Once I took my first bite, I knew it'd become a staple in my house! I love BLTs and this was excellent, tastes just like one. My advice is to sprinkle the lettuce on each individual piece as you serve it. That way if there are any leftovers, you won't get soggy bread/wilted lettuce. Chop fresh lettuce each time.. it's worth it!

Chocolate Macaroons I

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
These were good, but almost too sweet. I used sweetened flaked coconut - next time I'll try unsweetened. The texture, presentation & ease of recipe was great though.

Death By Garlic

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
This was good but needed much more cheese than the recipe calls for. Next time I will add meat and/or veggies because I did feel it was missing something. Great base recipe though!

Aunt Bev's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Taste is great - but this was really, really runny. *Update, I made this with granny smith apples and FIVE tablespoons of flour, worked a lot better.

Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was good but I needed more salt and sugar.. it's not quite the recipe I thought I was looking for. It was a little bit bland.

Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: May 13, 2008
Yum.. this is wonderful, just like the restaurant-style thai food. I made a vegetarian version, so no chicken and no fish sauce. Still full of flavour and a great meal.

Herbed Salmon Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This was easy to make and delicious. I did not crush my crackers as fine as some might like (see picture), but personally I liked it this way. Also a tip - take the extra crumb mixture from the bowl, spoon it over the steaks and push it into the steaks with your spoon. The more topping the better, in my opinion!

PHILADELPHIA Smarter Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
This is a wonderful and simple recipe - it works out to be pretty inexpensive, too, since it doesn't call for very much parmesan or cream cheese. This sauce has lots of flavour and it would be easy to add in vegetables and other spices, though I loved it made as directed in the recipe.

Bacon for the Family or a Crowd

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
I used the suggestion to put foil loosely on top of the pan, baked for 7 minutes on each side, and it came out PERFECT! Thanks.. I really hate frying bacon.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
These are good but I did find them more dense than I was expecting. I was hoping for more of a butter flavour, but spreading some butter on a cut, warm bun did the trick! They are really nice and I will keep this recipe around for when we have guests.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
The texture and ease of this recipe is great, but I just can't get past the taste of the shortening. I will use this when I need really white icing for small bits of decor, but otherwise I will have to find another recipe that mainly uses butter. I also found this way too sweet for my tastes (and that says a lot, since I have a sweet tooth).

Coconut Cream Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
Amazing! I have to be careful, I could easily polish this whole cake off on my own.. lol - the coconut flavour is not as strong as I'd thought it would be. You could easily add more coconut extract to the batter or even the icing. I might try a different whipped cream/icing recipe next time though - tastes great but I'd like something thicker for presentation

Chip Chicken Lollipops

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
I hate giving a bad review, but I found this very bland as written. I am going to have to experiment with spices, etc. Also the chips took a bit of work to stick to the chicken. I like the idea though.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
I really loved this. I added salt, pepper, and oregano to the breading. It was delicious and I can see myself making this more often!

Jamaican Beef Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
These are great! Much different from the frozen Jamaican Patties we used to buy from the grocery store - healthier, I'm sure! They are also very filling. I would love to make some changes by adding peas and corn into the filling next time. I also drained the fat and I've made it without breadcrumbs, still great!

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
This is great! I didn't find that I needed the whole bottle of hot sauce or blue cheese dressing... but that's ok, now I have enough left over for another pizza. I also added thinly sliced tomatoes, which worked great with the chicken & blue cheese flavours. Thanks for the great recipe.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
Excellent, easy, tasty recipe! I did follow the changes. 2 cans condensed milk, 1 cup lemon/lime juice, 4 egg yolks. Everyone was so impressed with this.. including myself! I did add 4 drops green food colouring to give it that key-lime colour. Serve chilled for best texture, and to make it easier to cut.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Thank you! This is wonderful.. it tastes like the betty crocker packaged chocolate icing, without that strange aftertaste. Also, it is much easier to work with & spread. I followed the reviews and only used 2.5 cups of sugar
