Cookie Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
These are great - very simple to make but it looks like you spent hours on them. I made them in the food processor and chilled them for a couple of hours prior to dipping. Will definately be making these again.

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This was really simple to make. I used almonds instead of walnuts, 1/2 tsp almond extract and 1/2 tsp vanilla, and added a little bit of cinnamon. I served it at room temperature with vanilla ice cream. Will definately make again!

Caramels

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I would definately recommend that you line the pan - I only greased mine and really had to work to get the caramels out. Other than that these were very easy to make. My coworkers actually fought over the last one!

Neapolitan Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
These are the cutest cookies! And they smell and taste just like neapolitan ice cream. For the pink layer I used 1.5 tsp strawberry extract and left out the almond, for the chocolate layer I used 2 oz dark chocolate, and for the vanilla layer I omitted the nuts. I chilled the dough for only two hours, and cut it lengthwise into thirds. 12 minutes in my oven was too long - about 8 or 9 minutes and they were perfect.

Taco Stew

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2008
This was a great easy meal. I made substitutions based on what I had in my cupboard. I used one jar of hot salsa instead of the tomatoes with chile, 1 can drained kidney beans instead of ranch beans (don't know what those are!), and 1 lb ground beef. I got 6 decent servings out of this.

Soft Pineapple Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
I really wanted these cookies to turn out (despite all the lukewarm reviews)but they just didn't work for me. I used butter instead of shortening, and I added 1 tbsp coconut extract to make them pina colada cookies. I am really surprised that something with so much sugar in it can be so tasteless. I added a pineapple coconut icing and only then were these cookies actually edible.

Spicy Chicken and Cilantro Wontons

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
These were so good! I couldn't get wonton wrappers so I used gow gee pastry and it made 30 rather large potstickers. I took the advice of another reviewer and steamed them instead of deep frying, and served them with Japanese Potsticker Dip from this site. Well worth the effort - will definately be making these again.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
A great way to use up old bananas. Like other reviewers I added some vanilla and a bit of cinnamon. I also halve the butter and make up the rest with applesauce.

Banoffee

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I first tried this pie in England and I wanted to see if I could recreate it for my English boyfriend. I used crushed gingernuts for the crust and omitted the sugar and extra ginger. I also used three bananas instead of two. I was really worried about the milk exploding because the top was bulging out a bit. But no problems, and I think next time I will take another reviewer's advice and make a couple of cans at a time. All in all a delicious pie that looked fantastic!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I was really pleased with how this dough turned out. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, 2 tsp Italian seasoning, and 1 tsp garlic. I also ended up using a bit less than 3 cups of flour. I really love how quick and simple this is. I used a regular cookie sheet because I don't have a pizza pan, and it baked up beautifully!

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
These were very good bagels. I've made these twice so far, and the only change I have made is to add an extra 1/8 cup water at the beginning because otherwise my bread machine really struggles with the dough. Oh, and I also gave myself a really bad steam burn turning the bagels in the boiling water the first time so watch out!

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
This is the perfect Nanaimo bar recipe. As a Canadian living in Australia it was nice to have a little piece of home! Since graham crackers don't exist here I substituted crushed arrowroot biscuits - you would never know the difference. My coworkers go crazy for these and always request them!

Peppermint Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
These seem to get easier every time I make them! I let mine dry for about 3 hours and that seemed to prevent them falling apart when dipping. I added a large chunk of Copha (shortening) instead of butter to get the chocolate thin enough. I have also made these with strawberry essence and coconut extract. Always a hit!

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
I wasn't overly impressed with this recipe. The taste was ok, but it was so crumbly I couldn't get them out of the pan. It works fine as a granola but I was really looking for a good granola bar that would hold together.

Turtle Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2008
Everyone loved this cake! I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I took the advice of other reviewers and used 2/3 cup evaporated milk & 1/4 cup butter, and iced the top with a chocolate buttercream. With these changes this is definately a 5 star recipe. A keeper!

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
These are the best dairy-free brownies I have tried yet! I use mostly applesauce instead of the oil, and depending on what I have on hand I add in nuts, dried fruit, or chocolate chips. Very versatile recipe.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
I only made this soup to use up some random ingredients but I'm glad I did. I scaled the recipe to 4, used one egg yolk, and cooked the rice in the soup. I eyeballed the amount of lemon, and think I used more than it called for but I really loved the lemon flavour! Would definately make again.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
I think I'll have to keep looking for the perfect blueberry muffin. These were good, but not fantastic. I halved the crumble mix and still had way to much.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This is the best oatmeal raisin cookie I have ever eaten. I always get requests for these. I add a bit more of each of the spices, and substitute allspice for the cloves. UPDATE: I've started adding 2 tbsp custard powder when creaming the butter/sugar - these cookies just got better!

Chocolate Mint Brownies

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
I thought these were just ok. If I were to make them again I would probably halve the minty layer. There was just too much.
