Homemade Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Pretty delicious, and yes, it does yield quite a lot of soup! I changed a few things, including putting the shrimp inside the wontons with the ground pork, and I left out the egg and bread crumbs. I assume that those are there to keep the wonton mixture together, but it held well without them. Great flavour, great soup!

Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Very good recipe, but my only disappointment was that the filling was so shallow once it cooled... it barely filled the cup, but I watched as they baked and they rose quite high in the oven, so you can't fill them higher than halfway. The taste was great though!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Really delicious, simple coleslaw. Easy to whip up for a summer meal. I definitely like using the shortcut of pre-cut coleslaw... my mix had broccoli, carrots, and red and green cabbage.

Indian Tomato Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
This is a fantastic recipe! I followed it quite closely, with only a few modifications. Like others, I did not process the onion, garlic and ginger, and instead just diced them very finely. I also used powdered cinnamon instead of a stick. Instead of whole canned tomatoes I used freshly diced tomatoes and added some (maybe 1/2 cup) plain tomato sauce. Lastly, I added about 1/2 cup of very finely chopped cashews to thicken the sauce and give it a bit more texture. SO GOOD! Yum.

Ginger Chili Citrus Salmon

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
This is a pretty good marinade. I'm not giving it a full 5 stars because I thought it could be thicker to create a nicer glaze on the salmon. Next time I'll add more honey to achieve that. I only marinated my salmon for 30 minutes and it came out pretty flavorful. Before putting the salmon in the marinade I reserved some for glazing while I grilled the salmon. I grilled it over medium heat without turning it, skin side down. It turned out really great. A keeper for sure! My husband said a couple of times that this was the best salmon I've made, and I have tried quite a few recipes over the years.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
I was kind of disappointed with this recipe. I thought that after marinating the chicken and veggies for almost 12 hours that they would be bursting with flavour, but they just weren't. The chicken did come out moist and tender (I was sure not to over-cook it) but something was missing. I'll try again but add more to the marinade - some garlic and onion perhaps. Maybe increase the honey, because it turned out more runny than I had anticipated. A good recipe, but not an awesome recipe.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
Awesome cookie! I doubled the batter and increased the white chocolate to 12 ounces and the macadamia nuts to 10 ounces. Baked for exactly 9 minutes - they came out perfectly! Made approximately 35 cookies based on dropping by rounded tablespoon (I like my cookies big). Definitely another keeper.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
Delicious! I mostly followed the recipe, but used bacon in place of ham, added some carrots and fresh garlic, and cut out the butter. I just whisked the milk and flour together and then added it to the stock. This saves you from dirtying another pan too! Just make sure you add some hot stock to the milk mixture so that it is not really cold, otherwise you might get some clumping when adding it the hot soup. After the milk was mixed in, I let it simmer until it thickened. I served it with a little grated cheddar cheese on top, and it was great! A keeper for sure.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
Great stew recipe! I followed others' recommendations and browned the beef and the onions before placing in the slow cooker. I used double the amount of beef stock (I guess I like my stew kind of soupy) and lots of Worcestershire sauce. I doubled the bay leaf and fresh garlic, and added some garlic power, onion powder and dried basil.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
Great French toast recipe! I used slightly stale buns that I cut then ends off of, and they worked perfectly (trying to use up food in the fridge). Of note, I used a bit of canola oil AND butter in the pan, and it worked really well: crispy outside, nice inside. A keeper!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Pretty darn good cookie! I somewhat agree with other reviewers that there is a strong cream of tartar + shortening flavour. Next time, I will use all butter (I rarely bake with shortening anyway) and substitute baking power for the cream of tartar. Also, I ended up with a rather crumbly cookie mix as compared to other types of cookies (like my go-to chocolate chip recipe) but they still turned out as expected: crisp on the outside, soft and fluffy in the middle. I baked them for exactly 8 minutes. Good cookie!

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
These were just "okay" for me. I didn't add the chocolate chips (trying to go for a purist blondie) but ended up with something lacking punch. Maybe the chocolate chips will do it, but I have a feeling not.

Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
I took the recipe and adapted it to what I had on hand. I used chicken broth instead of beef, sweet Italian turkey sausage, 2 large cloves garlic, barley, minced onion, chopped red bell pepper, no zucchini, beans, or tomatoes. It turned out delicious!

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Hmm, I wasn't crazy about this recipe. Might have to do with the fact that I misread the directions and mixed the butter, mustard and bread crumbs all together, then smeared it over the fish. It just wasn't awesome, but didn't taste bad either. Maybe I'll give it one more shot and do it the way the recipe calls for!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
5 stars with the following adjustment: reduce the flour by about 1 or 2 tablespoons! It turns out just slightly too dry with all of the flour, and I ended up having to add more butter. If you don't have the right consistency, it'll end up being crumbly. BUT if you have the right butter/flour ratio, oh man, it's SO good! The topping gets crispy and delicious. Oh, and don't bother with the 1/2 cup white sugar, absolutely NOT needed!

Beef Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Great recipe with some minor adjustments/enhancements. I added fresh garlic, green chiles and taco seasoning to the beef, and I used canned enchilada sauce. Next time I'll try to make my own enchilada sauce, and perhaps even some corn tortillas for a more authentic flavour. I served them with black beans sauteed with onion and garlic and a fresh salad topped with corn. Delicious!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
WOW! Delicious recipe BUT 3 cups of sugar is not needed; I made it with 2 and it was plenty sweet. I might even try 1.5 cups next time. If using for muffins bake for 20 minutes and they should be perfect.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Couldn't ask for an easier, better tasting sugar cookie recipe. I halved the recipe and it yielded about 30 cookies. Parchment paper is definitely the way to go for baking on the sheets. Try the 'Sugar Cookie Icing' recipe on this website for an excellent way to decorate them.

Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
I made this without the almonds and with some jam in the middle, and YUM! was it a hit. I served it with butter crackers and everyone loved it!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Mine turned out crumbly instead of "smooth" once I beat together the peanut butter mixture with the confectioners' sugar, but I went ahead and pressed it into a pan anyway, and it turned out quite nice. Next time, I'll add another splash of milk to make it smooth; hopefully it will turn out even creamier that way!
