To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2014
I was a little disappointed after the reviews because I thought they would be super amazing, knock your socks off kind of muffins. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the muffin, they are good, I just expected something more, like bakery quality as others had described. I can also see how some people had trouble with the muffins sinking from the topping.... The amount of topping the measurements give you is excessive!!! Don't put it all of it on your muffins or else you will be singing the same complaint! I think I used 1/4 of the topping on 12 regular sized muffins. Please also follow the instructions and grease your tin (inside the cup and on the top) then you won't have any trouble with the muffins sticking to the pan :)

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
Excellent banana bread, nice and moist. I added some chocolate chips because I didn't have enough walnuts. Kids liked it too!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2013
I'm giving 5*...however, this is what I feel needs to be altered slightly; I don't use celery (personal preference) I do add a good pinch of oregano & marjoram and it's very important that if you want a good thick soup, make sure your broth doesn't cover the broccoli (just enough broth that the florets still poke out if perfect) also, I double the butter for the cream sauce and use heaping spoons for flour as I want a real rich & thick cream sauce. I add the cream sauce to the broccoli & broth when the broccoli is tender then use an immersion blender because I like the odd chunk. That's it! enjoy :)

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
WOW! Wonderful recipe. I followed the recipe and they turned out great. I dropped the tsp. of batter in the sugar, pushed it a little with tip of the spoon to coat, then rolled with my hands - no mess! I also think it's important to point out, after reading some reviews of the cookies not being "all that", that you need to use high quality ingredients! My cookies came out so tasty, that I can't imagine anyone rating these anything but 5* Use good quality cocoa! These are soft, and dense like a brownie, rich in flavor and addicting!

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
These cookies were ok. I thought they would be a little better... after reading reviews. They actually taste better when they are cooked just a little longer but of course, then they are not soft! (not burnt but just not soft)

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
I didn't have enough bananas so I added 1/2 cup of apple sauce and I know I over mixed the batter but it turned out good regardless!!!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
I followed the recommendation to switch unsweetened apple sauce for the oil. I used 3 mashed bananas, which was more than 1 cup but they turned out fine, maybe this is the difference to making them moist instead of dry - like some people said. Also, I added a few choco.chips and some walnuts :)

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
Very good! Changes I made... I had to use mozzarella cheese in place of Parmesan because I didn't have any. It kind of made me think of garlic bread because the flavor was so intense - in a good way! Will definitely be making this again.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Great flavour on these chops! Couldn't get enough of them! I had a small change of substituting dried Italian seasoning for the oregano seasoning.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2012
Hard to pick apart this one... it's a keeper! The only thing I didn't do was melt the butter when making the crust. I cut in the butter til it was in very tiny crumbles. I may bake the finished product for only 20minutes next go but really, it was quite yummy!!! There's nothing wrong with this recipe, just the way it is!

Chocolate 'N' Oat Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
Wow! So yummy. After reading some other reviews I added a couple more tbsp of butter and put 3/4 of the crumb in the bottom, leaving 1/4 for the topping, then I melted a couple tbsp of butter and drizzled it on top of the topping. I also didn't have enough nuts (pecans) so I had to add some coconut. It was fabulous!!!

Very good recipe and easy too. Good texture, slightly chewy. I used half chocolate chips & half white chocolate chips for the top. Hubby & toddler approved in my house!

The Original Potato Salad with Real Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Good start but you can add to this base recipe to make it GREAT. I added sliced radish and used green onion instead of chopped white onion. I also added 1 tsp of mustard, a pinch of dill and cut back the salt to 1 tsp.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
Great recipe! I used 6 granny smith apples, which were just perfect for the amount of topping. I also made the following changes after reading other reviews... 3/4 c. white sugar and 1/4 c. water, then, half way through baking I melted 3 tbsp. of butter and drizzled it over the crumb to make sure it came out nice and crisp! Don't pass this one over, it's a goodie!

Simple Sassy Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
My husband really liked this and so did our 18 month old! I, however found that the sweetness didn't mix well for me with the salmon, personal taste I guess.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
TOO SALTY! I had four 4oz portions of salmon so here are the changes I made. I used 3 cloves of garlic, one tsp of dried parsley (because I didn't have fresh) 2tablespoons of lemon juice, and after reading everyone’s note to cut down on oil... I used 4 tablespoons of oil instead of 6 (I should have paid attention to all the comments about salt, sheeesh) Also, because I was extra concerned with having too much oil, I took the fish out of the marinade and cooked them directly on a wire rack and lightly sprinkled on some bread crumbs. I baked the fillets at 400 for 15 minutes then broiled them another 5 minutes. We all enjoyed the flavour for the fish, however we will not use the recommended amount of salt next time. Even my one year old gobbled it all up!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
This was a quick and yummy way to do salmon. My husband really loved it and even my 16 month old son ate it up. Some people said it lacked in taste but I thought it was fine. You don't want the ingredients to over power the fish, just enhance the flavour. I do suggest to broil the fish the last 5 minutes if you want the topping sightly crispy.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Loved these cookies! We had to freeze them to stop from eating them all! I used frozen cranberries which I defrosted then chopped. I didn't feel the need for the icing because they were just perfect without it. They are a soft, almost cake like cookie - not what I expected, but very good!
