Quick Szechwan Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Great recipe! I used ground ginger powder (1tsp) and garlic powder (1tsp) and substituted dried red pepper flakes (my boyfriend has no palate for heat!). Definitely a keeper!

Apple Crisp III

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
FANTASTIC!! I used 1/2 c each of brown & white sugar (as many others suggested) and a mix of apples I had sitting around the house. This turned into the most amazing apple crisp I've ever eaten!! My boyfriend had most of his piece devoured before I even had a chance to ask how he liked it. Definitely a keeper!!

Egg Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
Yummy! I've been making these for years - often I get strange looks when talking about microwaving eggs, but they turn out fantastic. It's a lazy version of scrambled eggs! Best thing about these is how versatile the recipe is. I've thrown all kinds of meats and veggies into the eggs and it all turns out fantastic!

Campfire Veggies

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Yummy!! I used a can of mixed vegetables (which already had potatoes & onions in it). Put a few globs of butter on it, sealed up my tin foil packet, and baked in the oven at 350F for 20 minutes. I took it out half way through and gave it a little shake. Turned out fantastic!!! I ate all my veggies before I even touched the rest of my meal! Looking forward to this making regular appearances at mealtimes.

Beth's Peach-Nectarine Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Great recipe! I just moved to the South Okanagan in BC, where fresh fruit is plentiful. Found myself with a box of nectarines needing to be used. Unfortunately my muffin pans are packed somewhere - so I made a loaf instead. I used 6 small nectarines, threw them into a food processor until it was a slightly chunky slop. As suggested in another review, I waited until the fruit was mixed with the flour mix before I added milk - good thing, because I didn't really need any added liquid. I also added some cinnamon and vanilla. Took about 50 minutes to cook and it turned out fantastic!!!! My boyfriend even said it was the best "baked concoction" I've ever made! Cannot wait to try this recipe again once the muffin pans get unpacked. This will certainly be an often-used recipe in my household!!

Creamy Cheesy Scrambled Eggs with Basil

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
WOW!!! Where has this recipe been all my life?!?! The sour cream gives the eggs a completely different texture which is unbelievably creamy. I added some chopped peppers and onions which nicely complemented the basil. This will now be the only way I make scrambled eggs! Thank you!!!

Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
A favourite recipe from my childhood - sometimes I like to melt cheese on top during the last few minutes of cooking.

French Egg and Bacon Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
LOVE these sandwiches! I pour the syrup onto the egg instead of on top so that I can eat it like a sandwich. I also like to add some cheese.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
