Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I've made these cookies several times and always love them. I made them recently for a 'Holiday Bake-a-thon' with friends and they were a HUGE hit. Super easy, look great and taste even better!! One tip-- don't use 'Rolos'. The caramel in Rolos gets stiff and chewy after baked. My favorite caramels to use are Caramilk Minis.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
Really, really great recipe. SO much better than anything I've ever had out of a bottle. A VERY easy dinner, but packed with flavour. My husband who doesn't typically like 'sweet' sauces on meats really enjoyed this, too. I used boneless chicken breasts which I cut into several large chunks.. Covered with tin foil while baking for 35 minutes at 425 degrees. Also added a squeeze of siraccha to my sauce to give it a bit of spice. Was perfect!

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Incredible, packed with flavor and DELICIOUS! I used extra lean ground (Jennie-O) turkey, and cooked on my Foreman grill for 5 minutes. They turned out very moist. So, so good.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I don't even generally LIKE meatloaf. Just listen to the name of it 'meat-loaf'. Loaf of MEAT. Ugh. Nothing about that sounds appealing in the slightest.. I tried this recipe only because it had such great reviews and because my fiance is a meatloaf-enthusiast. Well-- let's just say that I am SO GLAD that I did! It was absolutely the best meatloaf I have ever had. I did like many other reviewers, and made 'mini-loaves' in a cupcake tin. Baked at 350 for about 25 minutes. I also put the brown sugar/ketchup mixture on TOP, rather than on bottom. These were moist, FULL of flavor and so so filling. My fiance brought the leftovers for work, and sent me a text message at noon expressing how glorious this meal was the second time around. Well done!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
DELICIOUS! Revisions::: lessened the salt and increased the baking soda a bit (as suggested by other reviewers)... and added 1/4th tsp of cinnamon. The cinnamon really added a very nice, subtle taste. No walnuts for me-- just chocolate chips. Just before baking, I thought that my dough was still a bit too wet, so I added another 1/4th cup of oats just to be safe. Note: these cookies really flatten out in the oven. Cookies turned out wonderfully. My boyfriend and I ate the entire batched in less than 48 hours. So so good.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
Wow. YUM!! My husband had been requesting 'Salisbury Steak' for a while, but honestly, I didn't really know what it was and it sounded intimidating! Little did I know, it's essentially just a meat-loaf patty smothered in delicious gravy. I followed this recipe, and the few listed changes mentioned by other reviewers, and was really impressed. A VERY yummy dish, and super easy to make. Used ground sirloin, & served with parmesan mashed potatoes & steamed broccoli. Will absolutely be making this again.

Gumbo Style Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
Really, really enjoyed this Gumbo! I think that this recipe is likely best used as a 'base' recipe, to be modified a little bit depending on the tastes of the cook. Personally, I followed the advice of others and made a few alterations/additions: 1. Added one, chopped, smoked sausage coil. 2. Used Cayenne pepper in place of hot sauce. 3. Omitted mushrooms.. but doubled bell peppers. 4. Used 1 can of chicken stock. 5. 20 minutes is not NEARLY enough cook time. I simmered this for 2 hours before serving. It gave the flavours a chance to really develop and deepen. Absolutely divine! I am looking desperately forward to lunch today when I'll get to have it as leftovers… I imagine it'll only be tastier!

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Holy.MOLY! This is so so so yummy. I could probably eat it all day long. Huge fan. I think that will become my 'go-to' dish for potlucks and parties. It was so tasty, so easy, and definitely a nice change from the regular party/potluck favorites. It was so good-- I'm craving it now! I followed one of the reviewer's advice and used fresh grapes instead of raisins. Glad that I did--- the grapes added a nice, fresh, juicy crunch.

Awesome Broccoli Casserole

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
This was absolutely amazing. I made it for thanksgiving (canadian) and it was SO good. Got mad reviews. I didnt change a thing about the recipe, and it turned out beautifully. Actually, I was a bit nervous about cooking it. The truth is I have never in my life made thanksgiving dinner.. and I had also *never* cooked sweetpotatoes.. But this recipe was just so simple and fool proof! And, as I said, it turned out delicious. I will most certainly be making it agin!!

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
I am a young woman and this year was the first year that I cooked thanksgiving dinner on my own. It was really important to me that I do as much of the meal "from scratch" as possible. I had a guest list of about 10 people and all eyes were on me. I am happy to say that the meal turned out FABULOUSLY.. and this cranberry sauce was no exception. Everyone was *amazed* that I made it from scratch. Of course, I didnt tell just just how easy it was. This is *the* perfect cranberry sauce recipe.. very few ingredients, super simple to do, quick to cook, and so *so* tasty. I will definitely be using this one again and again! Thanks!!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
I more or less followed this recipe to a T (omitted the lemon pepper... because I strongly dislike the stuff!) and my notoriously picky husband said that it was the best thing that I have ever made. Really, really good flavour and SUPER easy to make. Will absolutely be making again!

Juicy Peach Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
A very good recipe! My husband and I ate this entire tray to ourselves in one day. WOW! I did make a few alterations... I was using very ripe peaches from my own tree, so I halved the amount of white sugar. I figured the peaches would be sweet enough on their own (and I was right). I like quite a bit of crumbly topping, so used 1/2 cup white flour and 1 full cup oatmeal. Fabulous, simple recipe! Will definitely be making this again. Next time I'll probably double (or triple!) it so that it'll last more than 12 hours in our house. DEEEELICIOUS!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
The PERFECT sugar cookie. And after they bake they are just too pretty to even *think* about putting icing onto! The only revision I made was rolling the dough in sugar before putting them onto the pan.. Just for apperance purposes.. Although, they would be just as pretty without the twinkle of the added sugar. Fantastic recipe. Very simple. Very quick. PERFECT results.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This was fabulous! So easy and turned out great. I was skeptical about the Italian Dressing, but it really did add that little special something. The only addition/change I'll make next time is adding some chopped celery & onions to the pot. A little bit of a crunch would be nice :) Will deeeefinitely be making this again.

The Best Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2014
The best double-chocolate cookie I have ever made… and possibly the best chocolate chip cookie PERIOD. Make sure to refrigerate your dough for 1-2 hours at least-- this solves the issue with cookies coming out too flat. Also, increase that cocoa up to 1/2 cup. Fantastic recipe. Will be making again and again.

Strawberries 'n' Cream Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This is OUT OF THIS WORLD DELICIOUS! Made it for a back yard BBQ.. and... wow. Super easy to make, and a big crowd pleaser. I imagine you could really get creative with it too, using all sorts of different berries/fruit... or maybe even find a way to toss in a little rum to make it a little more 'fun' (haha). Or, you can just not change a darn thing and follow this recipe to a T-- because it's just perfect as it is! Love this!
