Easy Brown Sugar Muffins

Reviewed: May 13, 2015
I just made these. My only change was to use almond milk instead of cows milk, due to allergies. I was very unimpressed. Bland. Too dense. If I made some of the changes mentioned in the comments, they may be ok, but then it would be a different recipe because there were a LOT of changes mentioned. These won't be made again. The ones I already made will probably go uneaten, which is unheard of in my house with a 15 year old boy and his friends passing through my kitchen every day!

Pasta e Fagioli II

Reviewed: May 7, 2015
A few changes based on reviews- a can of crushed tomatoes instead of juice, half chicken broth and half veg broth. A couple changes based on what I had on hand- I used white kidney beans and ditalini pasta. My husband and son loved it. I thought it was ok, but I'm not a huge tomato fan, so my opinion probably means less!

Lemon Butter Herb Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2015
The only changes I made to this was to add some capers (I added them while the butter melted) and about doubled the herbs. I then served it with sliced grilled Cajun chicken on top and sprinkled it all with some fresh parmesan. My husband and I both were unsure for the first few bites, but it got better the more we ate! I'll definitely be making this again.

Hot Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2015
I made some changes, but the basis of this recipe is a great idea,so 4 stars! First, I used homemade cornbread batter. It doesn't get as dry as the boxed stuff. Second, I added a can of black beans and some taco seasoning (instead of the spices) to my meat mixture. I've made it with a few other changes as well (no cheese, extra veg, etc) but the above changes were the ones we liked best. This recipe is one of those that you can adapt to what you have in your cupboards and fridge that day. I know it's a keeper when I actually print the recipe for my book, and with this one I did just that! Thanks for sharing :)

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2014
This recipe was pretty good- the tops got a little crispier than I expected no matter how much I shortened baking time, but the inside was moist and lovely. And I actually liked the crisp tops so that wasn't a problem for me. I did make a couple changes, but I'm basing my review on the basic recipe part. I skipped the vanilla extract and added peppermint extract. I used vanilla coconut milk yogurt instead of plain yogurt, because that's what I had (I substitute that all the time with no problems). And instead of basic muffins, I put a small amount of batter in the bottom of the muffin liner, then put in an oreo cookie, then covered with another scoop of muffin batter. They cooked up perfectly, and are a fun addition to the boxes of baking I sent out this year!

Unstuffed Cabbage Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
This is a very good recipe. I really enjoyed it, and my husband and son (who have both tried but never got that excited about cabbage rolls) said they enjoyed this more. The only change I made was to use the flavoured cans of diced tomatoes...I had olive oil-basil-garlic flavour on hand. Simple recipe for a pretty quick dinner!

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
This one is definitely in our go-to dinner rotation now! My husband and teenage son both adored it. Even I liked it, and I'm not a sloppy joe fan. I made minimal changes. We prefer ground turkey over beef so I used that, and instead of garlic powder I tossed in a spoonful of minced garlic. Very tasty, thanks for sharing this!

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2014
I made this to use up some asaparagus I had and wow was I impressed! I had to make a couple minor changes to make it OK for my son who has a severe dairy allergy, but nothing that I think changed the original intention/taste of the recipe by much. I substituted dairy free butter, almond milk, and I served his portion before I stirred in the yogurt (of which I used sour cream since I only had flavoured yogurt on hand). Also, I added an extra 1/4-1/2 cup of broth in the blender because it was too thick to puree properly. My picky 1.5 year old loved it. My 15 year old LOVED it. My husband and I loved it. My only complaint about this recipe is that it didn't make enough for leftovers! Next time I'm doubling the recipe. ***BTW, adding sriracha sauce took it over the top for my teenager. The flavours work awesome together and it didn't take away from the asparagus taste at all. Thank you so much for this, I'll be making it often!

Happy Apple Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
Pretty tasty, but I did make a couple small changes....My son has a milk protein allergy, so I used vanilla flavour coconut milk yogurt. I also added a smidge more vanilla and cinnamon than called for. And I realized after I started that I was out of oat bran so I just used quick cooking oats. Other than that I followed the recipe as written. Baked them in mini muffin tins (non stick metal trays, gas oven) for 10 minutes, rotated the trays, then cooked about 5 minutes more. Perfectly moist and delicious! Normally I don't give 5 star ratings if I make changes, but I don't think anything I did was a major change from the recipe as written. 5 stars it is!

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
Love this! The texture is great and it stayed really moist. I added red pepper flakes to the mix (a few Tbsp, didn't measure) and changed the sauce on top cuz I don't like BBQ sauce (I used a mix of tomato paste, mustard, brown sugar, and more pepper flakes). I also cooked them as mini loaves instead of in cups, but that's just because the mini loaf pan is easier to clean! Baked them for 45 minutes and they were perfectly done (VERY full loaves, less time if they're smaller).

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
One of the better sweet cornbread recipes I've tried. I gave four stars rather than five because while it was moist and had great texture right after baking, the next day it was quite dry and crumbly. Wouldn't stop me from making it again, I'd just plan to not have leftovers :)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
One of my favourite recipes....easy to make and absolutely delicious! I usually add an extra half cup of water, and almost double the ham and potatoes but that's just my taste. Even if you don't usually make soup and you're nervous about it, trust me you can't really mess this one up!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Yummy! I had a sweet craving in the middle of the afternoon, and these were so easy to make! The only change I made was to add a bit of cinnamon to the batter as well. Great recipe I'll be making often.

Cool Raspberry Soup

Reviewed: May 29, 2008
I make this recipe often, and I always get several requests for the recipe. I sometimes serve it as a drink and garnish with a cinnamon stick instead of the sour cream. Yummy!

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
So easy to make and so yummy! I made these rolls to have leftover turkey sandwiches after Christmas, but they're good even just warm with butter. I followed the other reviews and mixed the salt with the flour, and also brushed them with water and sprinkled with flour before baking, and yummy yummy yummy! My son won't eat sandwiches on bread at school, and these were so easy to make, it seemed like more effort to get in the car and go to the grocery store to buy some! I'll be using these a LOT!

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I love these yorkshires, they come out with a perfect texture and consistency. I make them to go with lots of meals besides roasts. I wasn't a huge fan of the roast itself though. Not bad, I just prefer more flavour, and the roast here is quite basic. This is my go-to recipe for yorkies though!

Albino Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Good dish, but not very exciting. I tried first as a side dish to a very spicy chicken, and it went perfectly with it. However I tried it again on it's own for lunch one day and was disappointed. Quite boring on it's own. Will make it again though when I need a side dish that will compliment and not overtake a very flavourful main dish.
