Hot Fudge Pudding Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Ok, so a week ago I made the recipe as written, and gave it 1 star. Watery and dull tasting. Tonight I just made a ton of changes, and they bumped it up to 4 stars. Still not spectacular, but good. 1. 1/2 teaspoon salt 2. 4 tablespoons cocoa in batter 3. 1 teaspoon vanilla 4. 1/4 cup melted butter 5. 1/2 cup cocoa in topping 6. 1 1/3 cups hot milk instead of hot water over top. I just heated the milk in the microwave on high power for 2 minutes. If I make it again I think I will add 1/2 cup chocolate chips to the batter.

Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
OH. MY. GOD! These just came out of the oven and we are all going CRAZY for them!!! I halved the amount of dough, but kept the full amount of filling and bottom stuff. I also added 1/2 a cup of toasted chopped pecans into the filling. I learned a great technique to make a warm area for the dough to rise: I put the dough and a coffee mug of freshly boiled water into the microwave (don't turn it on). The hot water makes the inside of the microwave the perfect tempertature and humidity for the dough to rise perfectly! I didn't wait overnight, I just let them rise a second time for 30 minutes in the micro again and then baked right away. Mine only took 25 minutes in the oven. EXCELLENT!!!

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
We didn't care for this at all. We ate it, but only because we had to. Won't make again, sorry.

Italian Kale

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
We didn't really care for this. I am trying to eat more kale since it has been labelled the world's healthiest vegetable. We didn't really like the sour taste of the balsamic with the taste of the greens. Maybe it is better if you have really good aged balsamic? I would also like the greens cooked longer so they weren't as tough.

Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
We thought this was great! But I made a lot of changes. 1: Only 1 cup of white sugar is PLENTY. 2: Reduce oil to 1/2 cup. 3: I changed the orange juice to soured milk because I don't care for citrus flavour in desserts. I also increased it to 1/2 cup since I reduced the oil. 4: I poured caramel - 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons cream, bring to boil (thank you kfcooke!) over warm cake. 5: I used 3 cups of apples and mixed them through cake batter. 6: I used a 9x13 pan instead of a bundt since so many people said their cakes had burned outsides and runny insides. It baked in 40 minutes and was perfect!

Chunky Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
I made these for the second time tonight, and with some changes they were FANTASTIC! 1: I left the chips out of the creamcheese part. 2: I used 1/3 cup of sugar in each part. 3: I used a 9x9 pan. 4: I baked them at 300* for 50 minutes for a much gentler and more even baking (no crispy corners and gooey center). 5: I didn't marble the layers, so it was like brownies with cheesecake "frosting". AWESOME!

Best No-Bake Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
I ADORE the fact that this recipe doesn't have awful-tasting and chemical-laden Kool Whip in it like most no-bake cheese cakes do. Thank you from the bottom of my "real food only" heart!

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
This was fantastic! I made a few minor changes: 1. I wanted the real charred flavour found in some baba ghanoushes, so I cut 2 medium eggplants in half, and roasted them cut-side down at 500* for 45 minutes. 2. I didn't have any sesame seeds, so I left them out. 3. Since my eggplant was so roasted, it wasn't as watery, so it wouldn't have worked in a blender. I put everything in a bowl and used an immersion blender to mix. I just served this for dinner: Cooked rotini, sauteed diced red pepper, onion, mushroom and chicken breast, and toasted almonds, all tossed with the room-temperature baba ghanoush. Everyone thought it was great!

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
My parents loved this, I thought it was ok, and my 4-year-old didn't care for it. I doubled the garlic, used thai fish sauce in place of the anchovies since I didn't have any anchovies, and left out the tomato paste and capers because I didn't have those either. The flavour of this sauce really depends on the quality of your olives. You need to buy real Italian or Greek olives from the case in the deli area of the grocery store. Canned olives have no flavour whatsoever.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Right after I had blended up the beans my 4-year-old walked in and said "Mommy, did you toot?" LOL! So yes, the beans smell weird when blended, but do continue on, things will be ok. We had this for dessert at room temperature. Not excellent, but quite good, especially considering how relatively healthy it is! I feel like it's missing a dairy flavour. I added vanilla and 1 tablespoon of cocoa to my cake. It would probably be yummier with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on top.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
This was good...but I agree that it was missing something. I added vanilla and a pinch of cinnamon. I also cut out the white sugar completely and just used the 1 cup of brown and it was plenty sweet. I can't imagine how sweet it would be with all the sugar in the recipe! And I baked it in a 9x13 pan for 30 minutes and it was moist and perfect. Making it really thin in a jelly roll pan just seems...weird...

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
We tried a yam (which is biologically similar but different from a sweet potato) for dinner tonight and no one liked it. So I used it up with this recipe. I cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup and used dark brown sugar. It was plenty sweet. I added about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and subbed 1/2 cup sour cream for the 1/3 cup water. Made 12 muffins. It was ok.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
HEALTHY VERSION - reduce sugar to 1 cup in batter, plus 1-2 tablespoons sprinkled on top. Change white flour to 2.5 cups whole wheat plus 1/2 cup ground flaxmeal. Increase peaches to 3 cups. Increase baking powder to 2 teaspoons (because whole wheat flour is heavier than white). Baked in 9x13 for 35 minutes. Turned out wonderfully and will definitely make again!

Kai Kang Dang (Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk)

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This was great! But...I changed it to what my family likes. I used shanghai bok choy and onion as the veg. I used 3 large cloves of garlic and about 1 tbs fresh grated ginger. I used about 3 tbs dark brown sugar, and regular basil that I had kicking around. I also had to use lemon instead of lime since I didn't plan ahead. Oh, and I just used 1 can of coconut milk and the moisture from the bok choy for the sauce. Anyways, it was delicious!

Roxie's Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
These were quite good! I used soured milk (1 tablespoon white vinegar plus milk to make 3/4 cup total) instead of regular milk since the recipe had baking soda in it. If you want to use regular milk then change to baking powder to keep the correct chemistry. I reduced cinnamon to a pinch and reduced honey to 1/3 cup. Added 1/4 teaspoon salt. My family doesn't eat raisins so I used chocolate chips. Will make again.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
This was delicious! Due to my family's taste I used blanched broccoli instead of raw, craisins instead of raisins, and toasted almonds instead of sunflower seeds. Will definitely make again!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
I made these as written except left out all nuts and didn't put sugar on top. Fresh out of the oven I feel it needs more salt (maybe 1/2 teaspoon) and fewer chocolate chips (maybe 1/2 cup) and pinch of cinnamon. Now it is the next day and I would reduce the score to a 2 star. Might try again with changes.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Made significant changes: used garam masala instead of curry powder; used 1.5 tablespoons of masala instead of 1.5 teaspoons; used coconut milk instead of heavy cream; added a bit of fresh lemon juice right before serving. Was good.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
Tastes exactly like jiffy mix cornbread. Which is nice since we like that and can't buy it in Canada. Very good. Will reduce sugar slightly and soak corn meal in buttermilk next time.

All-Bran® Refrigerator Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I'm always very wary about coporate sponsered recipes, but these are excellent! I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose, and therefore doubled the milk. I used only the brown sugar and was plenty sweet. Added some salt. Made plain recipe and put in 1 cup each chocolate chips and chopped pecans. Will absolutely make all the time!
