Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
I made ninjabread cookies (using ninja cookie cutters) with this recipe, and they were cute AND tasty! I doubled the recipe, used lemon zest instead of orange, molasses instead of corn syrup, used less cinnamon as I ran out, and added a good amount of freshly grated nutmeg. For the simple decorations, I used meringue powder mixed with a bit of water and used a small Ziploc bag for piping. Super easy and fast!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
These were fantastic! Very moist and flavorful. Here were my mods: substituted 1/4 cup of wheat bran in place of 1/4 cup flour. I ran out of sugar, so I only had about 2/3 cup instead of 3/4 cup. They were still moist and delicious though. I used frozen wild blueberries. For the topping (since I ran out of sugar), I substituted maple syrup and added a pinch of salt. It turned the mixture into a paste so I added a handful of panko to make it more crumb like. I put a teaspoon of the mixture on top of the muffins (12 muffin tray) and this turned out to be a lovely crunchy top. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Delicious cookies! I pressed a single piece of honey roasted pecan on each cookie as soon as they were out of the oven. I also added a little bit of grated fresh nutmeg for added kick. I also used Robin Hood NutriBlend flour instead of All Purpose.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
I made these for my son's first birthday party - all the little babies and moms loved them! I made my own light icing by beating until fluffy some cream cheese, butter and icing sugar, with a drop of blue food coloring.

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2008
Terrific recipe - I've been using it ever since I found it. Variations I've tried include substituting chipotle chilli powder instead of regular - gives a nice smoky flavor; adding some fresh garlic; smothering the ribs with dijon underneath the rub; as well as cooking the ribs on the crockpot prior to finishing on the grill. Everyone LOVES these ribs!

Tasty Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
My husband, who hates vegetables so much that he claims to be allergic to everything, LOVED this dish. I made it sans bell peppers and french fried onions - also used fresh mozzarella balls for the cheese. Served with rice and grilled salmon steaks seasoned with salt & pepper and a squeeze of lemon. YUM!

Pork and Shrimp Pancit

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
I've been making pancit all my life and thank you, thank you for showing me a MUCH easier way to cook it! Growing up, I had only ever seen this cooked one way - stir fry the vegetables, then add the noodles - and I always hated how hard it was to stir after the noodles were added! All Filipinos have their own preference for their pancit - I like mine with soy sauce and lots of lemon. I use just about any meat and veggies I have available at the time. The oyster sauce is a nice touch.

Ziti with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
This was delicious but I missed the fennel flavour that is present in the traditional recipe. I used fennel seed to compensate. I omitted the canned mushrooms and used fresh eggplant instead. To save time, I used pre-packaged grated "Italian blend" cheese instead of pure mozzarella.
