Seven Layer Tex Mex Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
As written, it was really good. A definite crowd pleaser. I made this with homemade salsa in place of the tomatoes and added my own taco seasoning to fat free sour cream, and left out the mayo. Even better. 5 stars!

I marinaded some thick pork chops overnight and grilled them on the BBQ. They were VERY delicious. This is going into my regular rotation, for sure.

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
I absolutely loved this bread! I was searching for an alternative to the banana bread I make very often and I'm sure I've found another bread I like just as much. My boyfriend said that he has co-workers who'd pay me to make it for them and even my 6 year old loved it! First off, I've tried this recipe 3 ways: 0nce as written which was very tasty. One time using applesauce in place of the oil which was slightly 'odd' tasting and I didn't like the texture. Lastly I used 1/2 sweet potato and 1/2 mashed fresh pumpkin and it was INCREDIBLE! Next up I'm going to try a lower fat version with sour cream instead.

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
Oh... the white sauce! this recipe is fantastic! Of course you definitely have some elbow room in cooking this to suit your taste. Spice it up to your liking. Just make sure you use fresh ingredients, and try not to use jarred sauce! I like to do it with a homemade bolognese. The meat is extra awesome with 1/2 beef and 1/2 ground sausage.

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Amazing flavour and simple to make! I like to make rosemary infused olive oil and brush the tops when they are hot out of the oven for a nice subtle rosemary taste.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
Peanut buttery, crumbly, decadent... everything you want in a classic peanut butter cookie. The only changes I made were using smooth peanut butter instead or crunchy, and dark brown sugar instead of brown and that was what I had on hand. Delicious. I will make these again.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I tried the recipe as written and really liked it, but I went with several reviewer suggestions and this cake was an absolute hit! I added the liquid from the pineapple in lieu of water for the cake mix along with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon (adds a wonderful layer of flavor). Also, I used cherries and pineapple rings to create a nice pattern on top, then filled all of the spaces with crushed pineapple. VERY wonderful flavor, incredibly simple to make, and beautiful presentation for guests.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

Thick, fluffy, light, sweet... everything you want in a frosting! Flavour is very good. I much prefer this to a traditional cream cheese frosting.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This icing turns out SO beautifully! The more milk you add, I find, the less glossy, so try to keep cling wrap on them when you are not using them. I usually make a few colours and keep them all covered, uncovering them only as I use them, the re covering them as I move through the colours. I also found that liquid food coloring can make it a tad runny depending on how rich of a colour you are trying to achieve. If you are going for deep, rich hues... go with gel food colouring so you don't water down your icing. They are SUPER concentrated.

Pork Chalupas

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
Simple and delicious meal that my whole family enjoys eating. As written it is wonderful. The only thing I add is a chopped onion, but it is great without it, aswell. I also reduce salt. Just a personal preference. I usually double the recipe, and freeze whatever is left into freezer bags for dinner when I don't have much time. To serve from frozen, I just sit the freezer bag in warm water until thawed then pour into a pot and reheat on the stove (though I'm sure it could be done in a covered dish in the microwave, aswell). Great recipe for make ahead meals!

White Almond Wedding Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
Excellent cake for stacking or carving. Holds up well if using fondant. I've done this as written, and also with chocolate cake mix and both were great! Feel free to change this up with other cake mix flavors and other extracts (as long as you are using basic mixes, and not, say, angel food or something).

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
Excellent cookies! If you are looking for a gingerbread recipe that simply doesn't use molasses but tastes just like gingerbread, then don't try this recipe. Like many other reviewers said, this is like gingerbread for people who don't like gingerbread. My son, who hates gingerbread, gobbled them up! We also made a gingerbread house with this yesterday and it turned out wonderfully. The pieces for the house had to be baked for longer than stated, and the gingerbread men and trees had to be baked for less time. Just keep an eye on them and you will not be disappointed. This is a keeper for us. It's now going to be a part of our regular holiday baking. Thanks, Kim!

Royal Icing II

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Great recipe! I've used this recipe several times, all with much success. Please keep in mind that a wide variety of factors will affect how much liquid is needed (and if you used any extracts to flavor it... I like a tad of lemon... this counts as part of your liquid). It is best to add the liquid a little at a time so that you can stop if you reach the desired consistency with less liquid, and keep going if you need more. The last time I made this (for xmas cookies) I needed about 9 tbsp!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
Amazing! Made these for a little something different to add to my holiday cookie tray, and I am so glad I did. These were an absolute hit! Of everything I made (7 types of cookies) these were the first to go at 2 separate events!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
AWESOME!!! The whole family loved this recipe, and we will put this into our regular side dish rotation. I used chicken stock instead of vegetable and didn't use cilatro (we didn't have any) but otherwise as written.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Amazing. No complaints. Easy to work with, colors nicely with gel colors. Paint vodka over top of it once in place and you will get a nice shine.

Pizza Swirls

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
This is a very tasty recipe. I actually overstuffed mine so I baked mine un-cut and cut them once they were baked. My 6 year old enjoyed both making them and eating them!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
Perfect with a little extra cinnamon and a scoop of french vanilla ice cream! As suggested by other reviewers I halved the water and the consistency was perfect. I also added 2 extra tsp of cinnamon... one to the apples and one to the crumble. This will certainly be my new crumble recipe!
