Easy Sweet Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
GO MAKE THESE NOW! I used butter in place of shortening and followed the advice of another reviewer by lessening the amount of sugar (since I used sweetened coconut). There was more than enough dough to make a dozen cookies - so I put the rest into mini muffin pans, which also turned out fantastic.

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
These are some of the best cookies I have ever eaten! I followed the recipe exactly as written, baked them for 10 minutes at 375F and ended up with two dozen soft ginger snaps - just the way I like them! The dough was rather oily and hard to roll, but I didn't worry too much about the shape. It all evens out when they spread out during baking. I will definitely be making these again - perhaps later today when my husband and I finish off this first batch :)

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
This crust is so good that I have been making pizza at least twice a week for the last month - seriously. I have used regular flour, bread flour, wholewheat flour - even tried some rye flour for one pizza. My favourite is the regular flour, but if you like the crust "doughy-chewy", go with bread flour and you will not be disappointed. I halve this recipe to make one pizza. To make it even better, I like to add 1 tsp each of garlic powder and basil to the dough when I am adding the salt and oil. Sprinkle the oiled pizza pan with cornmeal. Once the toppings are on the pizza, stir a bit of garlic and basil into some oil and brush along the crust. Sprinkle that with cornmeal. Makes a super crispy crust that melts in your mouth.

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
They were tasty, but I was hoping for more of a sauce/glaze. Will definitely make again with a few changes.

Hash Brown Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
I had a delicious hash brown casserole at a buffet and was hoping to recreate it at home. This recipe nailed it!!! It's so unbelievably creamy! I halved the recipe, omitted the cracker topping, and served it on top of some leftover taco beef - my fiance and I gobbled all of it back in one sitting and regretted not making more! If you are a cheese addict like myself, try using a can of cheddar soup instead of celery - so good!!

Hashbrown Breakfast Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Yummy! I used the little chunky hashbrowns (and didn't bother thawing first) - by the time this was cooked, they had an amazing creamy texture. I scaled the ingredients down to make myself one serving for breakfast. It took almost an hour to bake, so next time I think I would perhaps bake it at a higher temperature. Unfortunately I did not have any pico de gallo in the house, so I threw some jalapenos on top instead.

Skillet Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2012
Pretty much exactly how I make chili. I like to toss in a can of beer and a bay leaf. Let it simmer for a few hours until it thickens and you have delicious chili!!

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
WOW is this chicken ever juicy! I used two chicken legs and tweaked the sauce slightly to taste: a can of tomato soup, 1/3c soy sauce, 1/2c brown sugar & 1tsp each garlic powder, dried ginger, pepper and chili flakes. After the chicken was done and removed from the crock pot, I thickened the sauce with a bit of corn starch. End result? A very different, but amazingly good chicken recipe that couldn't be easier. The sauce was so good that I've got the leftover sauce in the fridge to use on a pork tenderloin tomorrow night!

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
This recipe will give you the BEST breaded chicken you've ever had. Do entire breasts, or cut them into strips for delicious baked chicken fingers. I like to add some dried dill and lemon pepper seasoning to my breading. Tastes a lot like KFC, but without the nasty grease.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
This is AMAZING!!! When made as is, I found the soy sauce to be a bit overwhelming. To counter this, I used 2 tbsp brown sugar and added 1 tbsp of maple syrup. Marinate as long as possible and KEEP THAT MARINADE!! Put the pork on a broiler pan with a bit of water in the bottom and bake at 400 F for 35-40 mins, topping with more marinade occasionally. Remove from heat to stand. Meanwhile, heat remaining marinade in small pot over med-high heat. Mix 2 tsp corn starch with equal parts warm water in separate small bowl. Stir into marinade while continuing to boil to desired consistency. Spoon over pork and serve.

Roasted Yams

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
Thank you for giving me a recipe that will FINALLY get my fiance to eat yams!! This recipe is fantastic because you can use whatever herbs and spices you'd like to spice it up! My personal favourite is 2 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp dried basil, 1/2 tsp dried dill, 1/2 tsp seasoning salt, 1/2 tsp pepper. I toss my yam slices in a mixing bowl with seasonings and oil, then spread flat on an oiled and tin-foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 F for 30 mins, flipping halfway through.

Potato Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
I was really excited to try this recipe, but was a little disappointed in the end. I followed the recipe exactly and ended up with a crumbly mix - I had to add an egg so that the dough would actually form and hold a shape. The cookies turned out great, but they were very heavy and rather bland. They reminded me of oatmeal cookies, both in taste and texture. I don't know how so many people say these cookies taste like shortbread - mine were NOTHING close to shortbread by any stretch of the imagination. If I did try making these again, I would definitely add some cinnamon or brown sugar to add more flavor. And I would use less potato chips.

Burly Burger

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Yum yum yum!! I'm so happy to see so many people enjoy this recipe - I make these all the time and thought that I was the only one! I like to throw a burger patty onto my George Foreman grill, crack an egg into the frying pan, and prepare my toast while the two are cooking. The burger and egg end up done at the same time and I have a hot, delicious sandwich ready in 10 minutes! Onions and jalapenos are my favourite toppings. I do prefer to cook my egg over-medium though, to make the sandwich a little less messy. Over-medium still gives me creamy yolks, without dripping all over the place.

Jagerschnitzel

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
This is me and my fiance's favourite use for pork tenderloin! I cut a tenderloin in half and pound out each piece until 1/2" thick. Although I know it's supposed to be fried, we prefer ours baked (using a cooking rack on a cooking tray) 35 mins @ 375 degrees.

Baked Buffalo Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Made these last night for my chicken strip lover of a boyfriend. Didn't realize I had ran out of Frank's, so used Sriracha instead - a delicious alternative! 1 cup of buttermilk to 1/4 cup hot sauce marinated with 3 sliced chicken breasts produced very moist and flavorful chicken strips. They got a huge stamp of approval from the boyfriend, but as delicious as they were, we couldn't even finish them all. But not to worry, the boyfriend had the leftovers finished by 10am the next morning. I did find the breading a little heavy though. I don't usually use egg when I bread meats (which is quite frequently), which is perhaps the difference?

Oven Roasted Red Potatoes and Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
This is one of my favourite recipes to whip up. It's quick and easy to prepare, plus it never fails to impress anyone it's made for. As in other reviews, I also alter the cooking times. I cook the potatoes and onions (and sometimes other veggies I decide to toss in, such as peppers or mushrooms) covered for 30 minutes at 425 F. Take it out, add asparagus and give it a good stir. Cover and put back in for 5 minutes. Remove cover and cook 5 minutes more. Simply fantastic!

Dutch Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Made this a couple nights ago to accompany pork schnitzel and was very impressed! The potatoes and carrots taste so good together. Will definitely be making this again. And again!

Parmesan Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
Originally whipped this up as a side dish to some pork schnitzel, but instead decided to put the finished product on top of the schnitzel and bake for a couple minutes - glad I did! My only complaint is that the mushroom sauce was missing something - I think I'll try it with a bit of stock added next time for flavor.

Carrot and Tuna Bites

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
Great idea!! I've used cucumber slices before, but the carrot is much sturdier - and has a nicer crunch. These are so delicious and addictive!
