Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2013
Very nice! I made only a few small modifications to the recipe. First, I followed another reviewer's suggestion and added 1.5 tsp. of baking powder for nice, fluffy muffins. I also added a healthy shake of cinnamon to the dry ingredients - it just seemed like the right thing to do! They turned out great - just the right amount of sweetness for the tart rhubarb, especially with the topping. Thanks!

Creamy Cilantro Chicken with a Kick

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Excellent dish, and a great way to use up leftover cilantro. I read through the reviews before starting, and decided to double the sauce recipe. I doubled everything except the serranos and the chicken. The result was a very flavourful dish with just the right amount of kick! I used boneless chicken breast cut into 1-inch chunks, threaded them onto skewers and grilled them on the BBQ. The result was fantastic! We will definitely be making this again.

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
Great recipe! I followed Chef John's suggestion for semi-cheesy mac and used 12 oz. of macaroni. It is still INCREDIBLY cheezy, and I may go up to the 16 oz. next time. I used old/sharp cheddar and gruyere, and it came out beautifully. I can't wait to have more for lunch today!

Earthquake Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Not bad - 5* for simplicity, but like someone else said, I have tasted better home made cookies. However, we took these out to the lake with us for a day, and the kids loved them! I used a DH Devil's Food mix, and threw in about a cup of milk chocolate chips to jazz them up a bit.

Cumin Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Unfortunately, we didn't enjoy these. We found the amount of soy and Worcestershire to be too overpowering.

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
Yum, yum, yum!! I have never made a cobbler before, and I had some blackberries that I needed to use up. I am thrilled with how this turned out! I found it a bit challenging to roll the dough - mine was a bit dry (as others have said), so it crumbled when I tried to make my jelly roll, and when I tried to slice it. But I managed to get it all in the pan and into the over. The end result is beautiful!! I even threw in a few leftover blueberries that had in the fridge. I can't wait to serve it to my husband tonight for dessert!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I loved these muffins. I took them with me to a cottage for a weekend away with some new friends, and they were an instant hit. The crumbled mixture on top makes these much better than your average muffin.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
I must add my kudos for this recipe! I absolutely loved it. Even my boyfriend, who insists he has the *best* banana bread recipe, agreed that this was the best he had tasted. I followed some of the suggestions from other reviewers - I used butter instead of shortening, used 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white, added 1 tsp. of vanilla and substituted fat free sour cream for the mayonnaise. I also doubled the chocolate chips, and added them to the dry ingredients so they wouldn't sink to the bottom of the loaf. I also cut the recipe in half to make one loaf, and it worked out just fine. The result was fantastic - I will definitely be making this one again.
