Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
I don't normally rate a recipe high if I have made a lot of changes to it, but that is the reason I'm rating it so high. You can sub out ingredients to create a healthier muffin, or follow the recipe. I used whole wheat flour, egg substitute, reduced the sugar, and used apple sauce instead of oil. Also, you can change what you put into the muffins, I didn't have an apple so I increased the carrots, and I substituted dried cranberries for the coconut, and added some muslix too. I baked them Friday, and they were as fresh and moist today as they were then. I will definitely be making these again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This soup is very good, and so easy to make. I substituted bacon for the ham, and used the bacon grease instead of the margerine. I will be making this again.

Bucket of Margaritas

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
These are great, we used crushed ice in place of some of the water. Make lots because they are very popular

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
This is great, I use it for steaks too. Everything is tender and full of flavour. I stuck to the recipe except for the red wine vinegar, I substituted white wine vinegar. It's a perfect blend of flavours. I have done long and short marinating times, and had great results with both. I mix a batch up and keep it in the fridge so it's so quick and easy to use. I dropped a couple frozen chicken breasts into some marinade and let them marinate while they defrosted.

Spicy Shrimp Skewers

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2014
These were amazing, looking forward to making these again when the weather gets warm. I peeled the shrimp before marinating them allowing the flavours to soak into the whole shrimp.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2014
This is an awesome cheesecake! I made it for my mom's birthday, and everyone loved it. The trick to getting the cheesecake to not be too sweet is using good quality white chocolate. I don't recommend using white chocolate chips, they are far too sweet, spend the extra. I used frozen raspberries, and made a bit extra, which I spread on the top of the cheesecake after it had cooled. (we used the excess raspberry in the strainer and made raspberry daiquiris) I have a convection oven, which is the best for baking. I baked it for 55 minutes, in a water bath, then let it cool in the oven with the door open. It didn't crack or hill. My family said it was my best cheesecake yet. I will definitely make this again. Update, made this again, and got rave reviews, it is the creamiest cheesecake I have ever made, rich and not too sweet. I doubled the crust ingredients and omited the sugar.

Peanut Butter Brownies I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
These are really good, peanutty and chewy. I didn't want to dilute the peanut butter flavour with chocolate, so I stuck to the chopped peanuts. I will definitely be making these again, they are so easy to make, great for when a quick treat is needed.

Easy Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
These were so easy and tasted great. I made them for a work function and they were a big hit. I used the juice from half a lemon in the base, and the juice from the other half, along with the zest from the lemon for the filling. I dusted the top with icing sugar before serving. I will definitely be making them again.

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This is a soup that not only tastes great, but looks great and smells wonderful. I didn't change a thing, and probably won't the next time I make it. It's the perfect soup for a cold winter's day.

Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
This is a great recipe. I was looking for a pie crust recipe, mine was lost, so I thought I would try this. I'm used to making pie crust the old fashioned way, this is so much quicker and easier. You have to be careful with the amount of water you add, a little goes a long ways. After mixing I put it in the fridge, along with the rolling pin. To roll this out, you need to sandwich it between 2 layers of waxed paper. I doubled this and it made enough to make a large deep dish pie. The pie crust was tender, flaky, and had a nice flavour. I'll never make pie crust any other way again.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
This is so good, and easy to make. Great for when you are having guests over on a weeknight. I made this for my boyfriend for our first anniversary, he said it's the best he's ever had. I made 2 slight changes, nothing to actually change the recipe. I substituted red wine for white as that's what I had, and I browned the meat first, and added the water to the frying pan to get all of the good stuff off the bottom. I also used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I didn't notice it being runny, it was just right, and I used 1% sour cream. I will definitely be making this again.

Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
This was amazing!!! I couldn't find lemon yogurt, so I used plain and added an extra 3 tbsp of lemon juice and the zest from one lemon. I topped it with the blackberry lemon glaze, to which I added 3 tbsp of lemon juice (we like things very lemony) This was the perfect summer cheesecake. I will definitely be making it again. With the yogurt it's not as heavy, so you don't feel as bad eating it. LOL

Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
This was great, it was my first time making Sangria, I substituted brandy for the rum. Everyone loved it, including my friend who makes it all the time. I think the best thing is that it has very few ingredients so you taste the wine and brandy (it's also quick and easy to make) I mixed the fruit and wine together the night before, then mixed everything together in the morning so all the flavours melded.

Hurricane Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
The cake is great, very moist. I reduced the icing sugar to 2 cups and melted he mixture just enough to pour over the cake. I'm going to double the cream cheese mixture for a quick and easy cheese cake.

Shrimp and Feta Cheese Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
This was my son's first time cooking, he made this for his girlfriend, it was very easy and very tasty. He followed a couple suggestions in the reviews and it turned out perfectly, she was very impressed. For those people who don't like shrimp, chicken can easily be substituted. We will definitely be making this again.

Oven Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
I gave this recipe 5 stars for the method of cooking the ribs, not the sauce. You can use any sauce you want, homemade, or store bought, but make sure to mix it with the coke. These ribs are so tender and if someone didn't know they weren't BBQ'd they wouldn't know. The ribs must be browned first, that is the key. I cooked them in the juices to keep them from drying out. I baked them a couple hours, and then removed the foil, drained them, covered them with straight BBQ sauce, and popped them back in for about half an hour. My son, who had requested them, loved them, and he was expecting BBQ'd ones. I recommend making them in a non-stick pan as they are quite messy, and the sauce can be hard to clean off. We will be making these again, it gets quite cold up here and we don't always want to go out the use the BBQ.

Turtle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
This cheesecake is amazing!! I did substitute chocolate crumbs for vanilla, but other than that I followed the recipe. The next time I make it, I will try it with caramel sauce, just because it's a pain in the butt unwrapping the caramels. I reserved some of the caramel mixture and drizzeled it over the top along with some melted chocolate and then topped that with more chopped pecans. To prevent the caramel mixture from being displaced with the next layer, I put it in the fridge to thicken it, and then spooned the cheesecake mixture over it. I will definitely make it again, everyone loved it. It's not too sweet, just very rich.

Apple Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I made these for a work function, everyone loved them. I made a double batch and substitued half of the butter with applesauce and then sprinkled oatmeal on top. They turned out very moist and very tasty! We are nut free at work so I couldn't add the nuts but they are fine without them.
