Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2013
My daughter and I made this recipe for our Thanksgiving dinner and it was a hit! Kind of felt bad ... No one touched the other two pies brought by the other guests! I didn't change any of the ingredients. I baked it in a water bath for 50 minutes, switched the oven off and let the cheesecake cool in the oven for 2 hours, covered it, and refrigerated it over night. I made a praline topping (3/4 cup maple syrup, 1 cup whipping cream and toasted chopped pecans), dalloped whip cream around the edge with a toasted whole pecan on each dallop. With or without all the fancy toppings, its a keeper!

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I had to make a few changes to this recipe according to what others had to say - it made it a 5 star this way. I added 1 tbsp of lemon zest to the filling and reduced sugar to 1-1/2 cups. Keep an eye on them while they bake, otherwise the edges will be too brown. Also, LINE your pan! It's so much easier to remove them from the pan if you do. I've re-written this recipe with my changes and will definitely make them again.

Viennese Crescent Holiday Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I used ground walnuts for this recipe and like others, I omitted the vanilla bean. I baked them at 350 instead of 375, and they turned out perfect! Thanks for the recipe.

Peppermint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
This fudge is pretty good, but I did take other reviewers advise and added more peppermint extract. My daughter and I added 1/2 tsp at a time until we arrived at the perfect chocolate to mint ratio (according to our taste, of course). We figure we added almost 3 teaspoonfuls. We also used pure peppermint extract. Thanks for the recipe

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Tip: Use oven ready noodles! It soaks up the liquid nicely. Let the lasagna sit for at least 15 minutes before serving. Alone, this lasagna lacks flavour. I added onion, garlic, fresh basil, mushrooms and ricotta cheese; I left out the milk. Any changes you make to this recipe, will make it a 5 star!

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This can be a 5 star recipe, but it's off in measurements and time of cooking, which is why I gave it 3 stars. PLEASE DON'T LET MY RATING STOP YOU FROM MAKING THEM -- they are quite delcious! I recommend everyone to read other's reviews and make necessary adjustments before you make them. I made the followng changes: I used 2 tbsp of gluten free flour for this recipe, buttered and sugared my cups (something I saw on Video Jug). I also used parchment paper to line the bottoms of my cups -- first I traced the bottom in pencil, then cut out the circles. After they're cooked, use a knife to loosen the edges. I cooked them for 10 minutes, but will cook for 12 next time as they were too gooey. I dusted with icing sugar, and served with raspberries and vanilla icecream.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Very yummy and I will be making this again and again! I always scour the ratings before trying a recipe. I always end up finding some very useful tips that perfect the outcome of a recipe. The following advice from other reviews were very helpful: 1. Use 1 potato, omit the potato all together, or add sweet potato instead. 2. For easy dicing, roast the butternut squash in a 400 degree oven for one hour, turning it every 15 minutes. 2. For a more flavorful soup, Add 1-2 cloves of fresh minced garlic, a 1/2 tsp of curry, a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. 3. Add another 1/2 cup of broth for a thinner consistency after you puree it (but, you be the judge of that). 4. Pureeing it gives it a texture similar to baby food, so you may want to leave some chunks in the soup. Lastly, If you love squash, you HAVE to try this soup. My husband was looking for the leftovers the next day and called me a "dirty dog" for sending them home with my son. I regret doing that as well!

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
I make this all the time when I want something quick. I use brown rice and for serving size purposes, I cook the rice and the lentils separate so I can mix 1 cup of lentils with 1/2 cup rice. (I always keep some extra rice and cooked lentils in the fridge) Like others, I add spice to mine (cayenne and curry). After the onions caramelize in 1 tsp of olive oil, I throw in a couple of handfuls of spinach until they wilt; this way I can eat my greens at the same time. I never added yogurt until I came across this recipe and I actually like it better! It cools down the spiciness. It's a tasty vegetarian dish. I didn't give it 5 stars because it is quite plain, but nonetheless, it's healthy and palatable.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I had some mixed types of apples that were too bruised to eat, yet too good to compost. I liked the ingredients in this recipes and thought it would be something my family would enjoy. I halved the recipe and it came out perfect! I sprinkled about 1/8 tsp of nutmeg and used only 3/4 amount of the water it calls for. An excellent dessert that I will definitely be making again.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
Delicious! You really don't need to add anything to it. I did, however, add 1 lb of lean ground beef, 1 cup of cooked pasta shells and served it with corn muffins. Out of this world! There was enough leftovers for 3 days -- not complaining! I'm an organic health nut and will be adding this to my winter soup collection because it's so natural, healthy and wholesome. Thank you for the recipe.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
My family enjoyed this very much. I didn't change the recipe at all. We don't like a lot of added stuff in our food and this was just perfect! If you like, you can add whatever you want to this quiche and I guarantee it will always taste awesome. Thank-you!

Witches' Brew

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Great idea, but I'll probably never make this again. Sorry! All the fingers snapped off, except for the thumb :( The kids thought it was still cool, but then decided it looked pretty gross once it started melting.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
My husband has a wheat sensitivity so I had to substitute whole grain brown rice for the orzo. Excellent side-dish. Thank-you!

Five Flavor Pound Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
The cake was delicious. You must love coconut because it is the essence that overpowers the cake. I did not glaze the cake either. I only gave it 4 stars because, although it didn't fall apart, the crust did stick a little to the pan and did not look very pretty to serve it whole. I guarantee there is a 50/50 chance of your cake sticking; you will need to judge whether you are willing to take that chance:) I ended up slicing it and arranging it nicely on a platter. Would be nice to serve with some strawberries and whipcream. May make it again, but not sure.

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
4-1/2 stars Warning if you live in Canada: Our measurements are NOT in ounces, so make sure you are converting the ingredients, otherwise you will have a runny pudding. My guests and I enjoyed this dessert, however, most of us found it to be too sweet. The "Nilla" wafers had a soggy texture which some people didn't like. Other than the soggy wafers, it did taste better a full day after it was made, compared to eating it the same day (9 hours after).

Manicotti Shells

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Good recipe. I gave it 4 stars because I had to make a change. I remember my mother adding milk to her manicotti shells, so I added 1 cup water and 1 cup of milk, making it more like a "crepe". This recipe doubles nicely.

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Super yumz! I followed some of the reviewers advice and added more curry 1-1/2 tsp, but will only add 1 tsp next time. I used slivered almonds and toasted them, but would probably have tasted just as good without toasting. If you are using brown rice like I did, you may find you want to add about 1/4 cup more of either chicken broth or water (if you want to cut down on the salt) if you want a more tender rice. Thanks for the great recipe!

Stacey's Hamburger Seasoning

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I was looking for a change to my hamburger recipe. I only made 4 patties out of the mixture, in case we didn't like them. Needless to say, my husband and I didn't care for this recipe -- and my husband eats beef cooked in any way, shape, or form! I ended up mixing the rest of the mixture with more hamburgar and ingredients from my own recipe -- they were so much tastier. Based on the reviews, I really wanted to like these. Sorry Stacey:-(

Microwave Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
I have to give this 5 stars for a dessert that is both satisfying and quick. I had all the ingredients on hand, including the vanilla ice cream. I scaled the recipe for 2 people. I microwaved it for only 8 minutes, but probably could have used only 5 minutes (the cooking time does not scale, so I do recommend microwaving it in a lot less time if you intend on making fewer portions). However, my daughter did not like it :( Although I'm giving it an awesome rating, it still does not compare to a traditional oven baked crumble. Thanks for sharing!
