Chicken Fajita Melts

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
Unfortunately, I have to give this a 3 star. It was edible but nothing special. I think it has potential to be so much better. The bread needs to be lightly toasted or broiled before putting the salsa and chicken misture on it or it becomes seriously soggy. With some tweaking, I think this recipe could be far better than it currently is.

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
After the first bite, I wasn't too sure about it. After the third bite, I was totally sold! It is delicious! But very rich. I would definitely keep this to an appetizer rather than a meal because of it's richness. This ones a keeper!

Chicken and Red Bell Pepper Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
This was ok. I actually found it quite bland. I ended up adding a bit of minced onion to the mix to perk it up. But I don't think it's a recipe I will try again.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
WOW! They were amazing! Just loved these babies! Very flavourful, it was almost like eating a cupcake!!! The only complaint I had was the method of mixing - it's the first time I have used my food processor to mix up muffin batter and it wasn't bad until I went to mix in the chocolate chips with a spoon and to spoon the batter out into the muffin cups - I found it a little awkward. Other than that, it was all great!

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I was a little concerned when I mixed these up for two reasons - 1) because the molasses is difficult to mix in you really need to mix well, even when you think it won't come together, keep mixing, it will and 2) the batter was a quite runny so I had to add another 2-3 tbsp of flour otherwise it would have run right off the waffle iron. Other than that, it was a GREAT waffle recipe. I loved that it used oatmeal, such a heart-healthy grain! One other tip - if you are not eating the waffles right away, make sure to place them on cooling racks so they will retain their crispy just-off-the-waffle-iron texture otherwise they will become very soft.

Rich Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Really should rate this at a 3, but I am giving it a 4 because it has so much potential! First of all, an absolute MUST, is baking the pie crust for 8-10 mins before filling otherwise you end up with a soggy bottom. Cover the edges with tin foil or a pie edge cover because they WILL burn by the end of baking, specially at that temp. As for the temp, I would reduce it to 400F next time, which is plenty hot enough to bake a quiche. I did add some onions that I softened in the microwave and some garlic powder - I would add more next time. Also, I would change up the cheese and do a mixture of cheeses like cheddar, mozza, parm, and asiago. The milk and cream need to be reduced to allow the egg to set properly - I would reduce the milk and cream both to 3/4 cup EACH. The next time I make this with the changes I've noted, I will update.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
These babies went like hotcakes at my family potluck! They were delicious! I did make two changes to the recipe - I reduced the cayenne pepper to 1/8 tsp from 1/4 tsp only because I knew the majority of people I was making these for would have an issue with the heat and I also added 2 tbsp shredded Asiago cheese to the mixture (because I LOVE Asiago).

Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Made as the recipe called for, the egg filling was good. But to me, it lacked a little bit of sweetness. So, I added 1 tbsp of sweet green relish. Wow! They were delicious! I think with that small adjustment, this recipe is now a keeper!

Baked Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
This was ok. It wasn't spectacular, just so-so. Probably not something I will bother making again.

Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This was a really good recipe; a definite keeper. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and cut up russet potatoes (it's what I had in the house) and it turned out pretty good. However, I will make some adjustments next time. 1) I will rub part of the spice mixture on the chicken before laying pieces of bacon over it. 2) I will toss the potatoes and onion with the spice mixture before placing them in the dish around the chicken. 3) I will reduce the amount of spice mixture - this makes too much. A little goes a long way!

Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
This cookie is quite good! It mixed up well, rolled well, and baked well. A past reviewer recommended adding 2 tsp maple extract. I added 1 tsp and I am so glad I did because even with the maple syrup and 1 tsp maple extract, it's still a mild flavour. I will definitely make these cookies again, but I will use the full 2 tsp maple extract. I also have VE Canadian Maple Chips (like chocolate chips) and I think I will try throwing some of those in too to see what the result would be.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
This was a good recipe! Loved all the garlic in it - if you're not a garlic lover, I would recommend cutting back to two cloves or even just one. I used white balsamic vinegar instead of regular only because I prefer it. The bruschetta was interesting with the vinegar in it - added a bit of sour to the sweet tomatoes. Altogether a good recipe. I will defintely keep this to make again, perhaps for company.

Irish Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
I LOVE corned beef & cabbage. It's one of my favourite meals! And when I saw this recipe, I thought it would soooo good! How could it not be? Unfortunately, it's did not turn out as hoped. I don't know how yummy corned beef & cabbage stuffed into a yummy egg roll skin can possibly be so tasteless, but it is. Wish it weren't so. Definitely not a recipe I will try again.

Layered Fiesta Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
This was pretty good but I found it quite bland. It's something I will try again, but I will have to make a few adjustments. Such adding a bit of salt, as well as some Mexican seasoning.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
These are really great! The flavour was almost exactly like the Pretzelmaker! I did use melted butter instead of veg oil since the recipe is called BUTTERY Soft Pretzels. Normally I would give a recipe 5 stars since it was so great, but I did have a bit of a problem with the recipe so it's only a 4 star. I had to add almost 3/4cup of extra water when mixing the dough, it was so dry. The next time I make this, I will start with 4 cups of flour, reserving the last one until I see how the dough is mixing up.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
After all the rave reviews, I was really disappointed with this recipe. There just wasn't anything special about it. The flavour was good, the veggies were good, but there just seemed to be something missing. This isn't a keeper for me unfortunately. UPDATE: Today I added a little garlic and thyme to the leftovers and it was sooo much better!

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pork Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
This was good. The meat was a little dry. I would have to cut the cooking time a bit to make this again. The fruit was a delicious, sweet but tart companion. I served it with broccoli and jasmine rice. Very tasty when put together. But I can't say that I will make a great effort to try this recipe again.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
The flavour was very, very good. Unfortunately, the meat was a bit dry at seven hours of cooking time, so I would have to try this again with a shorter cooking time in order to see if that can be remedied.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
This is a keeper! Very delicious! I followed the instructions to a "t" withthe exception on drizzling the remaining garlic butter over the top of the chicken breast. I figured it had enough fat as it was.
