Chewy Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
I made this for a gathering we hosted last night because I was craving coconut. We can't get walnuts where we are, so I increased chocolate and coconut. I also used butter instead of shortening. The bars disappeared with everyone raving about them. The cooking time for me was quite a bit longer than stated, so keep an eye on the oven.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
I love this recipe. I don't make any changes and it turns out perfectly every time. I like to line my baking dish with tin foil to avoid a baked on mess.

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
My family loves this recipe. It is sticky and a bit hard to work with but the flavour and texture is completely worth that tiny bit of inconvenience. I make this regularly and don't change a thing.

Chef John's Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
These were delicious. I halved the recipe and used all beef as pork is difficult to get where I live. Everything else I followed exactly. They held their shape wonderfully, even after sitting overnight in tomato sauce. These are my new "go to" meatballs from now on!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
Oh my goodness! I had guests staying who were allergic to eggs and these were the perfect snack to have on hand for them. The only change I made was to add the cinnamon straight to the batter instead of topping with cinnamon sugar. They were gone before I got them out of the muffin pans! I have also made them with the topping and that is also delicious!

Danish Christmas Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
I halved the recipe and it was enough for our large group with a Christmas turkey dinner. We really loved the flavour and it was nice to be able to make it ahead of time and just reheat when the rest of dinner was ready. It added gorgeous colour to the table. I will make this again and won't change a thing.

Broiled Parmesan-Lemon Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
This was delicious! I don't know what sazon seasoning is, so used a mixed herb seasoning that I had on hand. Followed the recipe apart from that and so glad I did! My boyfriend has declared this his new favourite dish. I'll be making this again often.

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I didn't have the ingredients for my usual apple muffins so tried this recipe instead. Delicious! My husband has shredded the other recipe in favour of having me only make this one from now on! Highly recommended without changing a thing!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I made a completely daft move when making this and didn't add in the butter at the appropriate time! I ended up messily kneading it in to what should have been the finished product! Regardless of the mess, it was delicious when I finally had it incorporated! I will be making this again soon!

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I had to use fresh pumpkin as we can't get cans of it where I live, but kept everything else the same. It was really good. Next time I would add some onion and garlic as others have mentioned just for a bit more depth but it was good as listed.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I've made this twice. The first time I realized halfway through that I didn't have the rosemary needed and substituted basil and thyme. It was good. But with the rosemary (exactly as written!) it is excellent. Where I live, you can't get bread flour, but even with all-purpose flour, this recipe works perfectly and is delicious. I'll be making it again soon!

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This is the only chocolate cake recipe I use anymore! It's perfect every time. I follow the directions exactly. It's great for cupcakes as well as the multilayer cake.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Great for quick and easy meals. I can't get bread flour where I live and it works fine with normal all purpose flour. To add flavour, I sometimes add dried herbs (oregano, basil).

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Oh my goodness! So good! I get requests for these often. Only change I make is to omit the nuts.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
We love this bread. Living in a rural town in Tanzania, there is nowhere to buy nice bread and this easy recipe produces great results with minimal ingredients and no need for extensive baking skills.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
This recipe is flexible and it is my staple. It is perfect as is, but due to the flexibility of it, you can sub whole wheat flour, oil, less sugar, etc to make it what you are craving. The best part - powdered milk is extremely expensive where I live and this is one of the few bread maker recipes I've found that doesn't require it! Thanks for the recipe!

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
This is the only zucchini recipe that everyone loves. It's very flexible and forgiving. It is a 5 star recipe as it is, but is also a 5 star recipe if you substitute whole wheat flour for part or all of the all purpose flour listed. Enjoy!

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
This was a good base, but I did add a few spices to it as I found it a bit bland. I took another reviewers advice and used half and half. I will make this again.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
These are my boyfriend's all time favourite cookies. I only make 1/2 batch at a time as he will eat as many as I make...

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
My new favourite (non chocolate) recipe! Simple, quick and with every day ingredients. I do not change anything, though sometimes underbake them if they aren't to take somewhere. (underbaking makes them wonderfully gooey, but hard to serve nicely!)
