Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
Tip to people having problems with sugar crystals or getting it to beat up stiff enough: add 1/4 tsp of cream of tartar. It will prevent sugar crystals and makes egg whites beat up lighter. This is the stuff childhood memories are made of.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
I made a half recipe to use up leftover sweet potatoes, and thought they turned out great! I made them quite small (about the size of the end of my thumb). Anyone complaining about the lack of flavour... um... have you ever had potato gnocchi? These are how they're supposed to be. Hint: cook the sweet potato in the microwave. Just wash the outside, stab it a few times with a knife, and nuke until soft (expect 15-30 min). Then cut in half and scoop out flesh.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Cooked in a 4 qt crockpot for 4 hours on high (omitted the topping and halved the butter). Delicious! Formed a nice brown crust, even in the crockpot.

Pan Seared Lemon Tilapia with Parmesan Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
It was okay. The flavour was good, but the look was terrible. Beige with a side of beige. I served it with mixed roasted veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, and snow peas), which helped the appearance a bit. It was fairly quick and easy, although it took a little juggling to have it all ready and hot at close to the same time. My husband liked it (especially the pasta).

Chocolate Dipped Orange Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I made one batch using a mixer and it required about 1/2 cup more flour. Then I mixed one by hand, and 1 cup of flour was enough. I think that might explain why some people think the recipe is perfect and others have problems. One batch with cranberries and white chocolate, one batch as written: the perfect gift for my mother-in-law. Thanks!

Amazing Hawaiian Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I halved and simplified this recipe (omitted roasted red pepper, butter, used onion powder for onion, did not marinade chicken first). It reminded me of my baked beans, but with chicken. The people I served it to enjoyed it, and the leftovers were excellent. 4 stars, not 5, for being a little unnecessarily complicated in the recipe.

Irresistible Double Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Definitely the most delicious healthy muffin I've ever made. It isn't overly sweet, so the chocolate chips are definitely key.

Quinoa Turkey Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
As I wasn't roasting a turkey, I cooked the quinoa in chicken stock, then added the other ingredients (omitted the salt because of all the salt in the stock) and just microwaved it for an extra 5 minutes or so. Tastes great! Can't believe how healthy it is, and would happily serve this to guests.

Hearty Hot or Cold Roasted Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
My "roasted" garlic was charcoal by the time it spent an hour in the oven, and I drastically cut the stock (used more like 2 cups, not 1 quart). Nice flavour, though, and a great way to use up tomatoes.

Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I tried to like these, I really did. I baked the pancakes for 10 minutes at 350*F after frying, to be sure they were cooked through. Overall, they were okay, but it really isn't a secret what they're made of. Too much work for what ended up tasting exactly like sweet potatoes.

Layered Enchilada Bake

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
This casserole has become a staple in my Once a Month cooking rotation. It freezes well, and tastes great even a few months later. I like the beans, and have started adding black beans to taco meat in other recipes to stretch it out and add nutrition.

Salad with Prosciutto and Caramelized Pears and Walnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
I scaled the recipe to just 2 servings and didn't reduce the orange juice (just used less). The carmelized pears and walnuts were fabulous, and the vinagarette was delicious. It didn't thicken, but vinagarette is typically very thin. Served with a ham and cheese quiche for a great meal - the salad was made while the quiche cooked, and everything came out at the same time.

Easy Deviled Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
Cooked 35 min @ 400*F, and it was done and juicy. Subbed plain yogurt for mayo. Quite good, and definitely easy.

Warm Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Cooked this up as a topping for pork chops - very tastey! I used a food processor to finely chop the onion and jalepeno. Not very hot - could probably leave the seeds in to get a bit of bite.

Fat Free Refried Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
Cut the liquid smoke to half a teaspoon or less, and then it's fantastic! Served with Mexican Rice II, some taco meat, tortilla chips, sour cream, and chopped tomatoes. Yummm.

Easy Sausage Strata

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Made this for a potluck - it disappeared very quickly. Great that it can be assembled ahead of time. Looks very impressive, simple ingredients, and great flavour.

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
I thought this was tastey! I cooked the sweet potatoes in the microwave (much less prep work this way), and also cooked the apple in the microwave. Just put the apple, butter, etc. in a measuring cup and cook for about 2 minutes on high. Simple and delicious!

I made this with the last bits of rotisserie chicken leftovers. Fantastic! Just what I needed on a chilly day.
