Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2012
A bit bland for my liking. It wasn't bad, just not memorable. Could use some extra spicing to improve flavour, but probably would not make again.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
So easy; I use this for pizza or halve it to make one panzarotti. Only problem is that it puffs up a bit more than I would like for a crust, but you can't beat the time it takes to make.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
Always a hit! I've thoroughly impressed my mother-in-law with this recipe. I recommend covering the pie crust with a tin foil circle after the first 15 minutes (when the temperature is lowered) to keep your crust from getting too dark.

Churros

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
I didn't have a pastry bag, so I simply rolled them out by hand and dropped the churros into the oil. Delicious!

Watermelon Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Such a great idea! I don't have a blender, so I gave the watermelon a rough chop, then put it in a large bowl and used a potato masher to get the juice out. I then strained it through a sieve, using the back of a spoon to make sure I got all the juice out. My only problem with the recipe is that the lemon juice got completely masked by the watermelon flavour; there was just no tang! I added another lemon's worth of juice to the mix, which seemed to help.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Several people complained that the loaves didn't rise too much, which I experienced as well the first time I made this recipe. The second time, I tweaked it to 1.5x the original recipe (ie: 6 cups of flour instead of 4). This resulted in nearly perfectly-sized loaves. I also found the butter-sugar-cinnamon filling to be very runny, so I decreased the amount of butter used to turn it more into a rub than a liquid.

Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Used this recipe to make bread for the very first time, and it turned out fabulously! The instructions walked me right through it and I didn't have a single problem, although I kept expecting something to go horribly wrong. Found that it rose incredibly well (doubled in 40 minutes) when left on the counter beside a pot simmering on the nearby stove. Served it with a homemade spaghetti sauce, and was a total hit with the guys!
