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!!

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.

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!

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!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
Made this using chicken breast in place of pork, and the results were very good!! I did make a few other modifications as well though... I like things spicy, so I added a small can of diced green chillies, and also some pepper flakes. Served on small flour tortillas with broccoli-slaw. DELICIOUS. The chicken was so moist & flavourful. Absolutely yummy. I could easily just sit down and eat this out of the crock pot with a fork.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2014
This was the first time that I EVER made a cake from scratch! I was really nervous going in, but ultimately was blown away by how easy it was… and how tasty the final product is! Word to the wise-- The batter, before baking, is VERY thin. Don't be alarmed!! It will bake up into a wonderfully fluffy, decadent chocolate cake. This cake is quite airy and fluffy--- if you're looking for a more dense, hearty cake this recipe is not for you.

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!

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2013
The first time I made this recipe, I was not blown away. I would have given it a 3 star review… However, I followed the suggestions of a few other reviewers, make a few tweaks and tried it again… VOILA! 5 stars! 1- melt the butter before mixing with the sugar. 2- 3 cups of flour only. 3- bake for exactly 9 minutes. This results in a cookie that doesn't expand/puff up too much while baking, and retains the shape of your cookie cutter. The cookies, even 3 days later are firm.. yet soft & chewy and not at all crunchy or brittle. LOVE.

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.

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.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2014
Wow. Amazing cake! Dense, moist, and incredibly delicious. My husband said it was the "best cake ever" and this is a man who says that cake is his favourite food-- so it's tall praise! I did end up making a few adjustments… - Cut back on the sugar by 1/2 a cup - Cut back on the oil by 1/4th of a cup - Omitted the cinnamon & walnuts completely - Added about half a cup of shredded coconut. Watch your baking time. The recipe says 50 minutes, but ours was done in about 30 min. I will absolutely be making this again. And again. And again!

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014
I am generally more of a 'creamy sauce' fan, but I have to say…. I am so glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit and tried this recipe. It was wonderful! Super simple & quick, but the flavours are absolutely fantastic. I followed the recipe almost exactly, with the exception of adding just a touch of salt.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2014
Liked this very much! Though, I would advise to also follow the advice of reviewers and change the method slightly:: I heated the sauce in a small sauce pan, while sautéing my chicken pieces in a separate pan. When chicken was 3/4 done, I added the heated (and, by that point, thickening) sauce & cooked the chicken the rest of the way like that on low heat. The result was perfectly saucy, sticky, spicy-sweet chicken bites. Super easy too! Absolutely lovely with rice and steamed broccoli. Will definitely make this again ( & again, & again)!

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.

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Amazingly easy and amazingly good! I followed one reviewers tips, and made sure to beat the 'dough' for a SOLID 3 minutes (I used my stand-up mixer). I also let these rise for a total of about 45minutes. They came out SUPER fluffy and light. Really really perfect.

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.

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!
