Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2015
Up until today, I had a favourite go to Banana bread recipe that called for sour cream. The idea of using cream cheese intrigued me so I made this recipe. The only change I made was to omit the nuts because hubby doesn't like them. I have now pitched all my other banana bread recipes and will use this recipe and ONLY this bread recipe going forward. This banana bread is so moist and flavourful, OMG, we love it! To those of you who said you'd add more bananas, please be careful. Too many bananas changes the entire loaf and you may find as I did, that the loaves do not bake all the way thru because of too many bananas in the batter. Try using banana extract instead!

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2014
Great recipe! I read reviews before making this dish for the first time and one of the reviewers wasn't a fan of poaching the chicken. I did poach the chicken. I added chicken broth to the water for added flavour. The one thing I did not do, was cook the egg noodles in the poached chicken water. There was too much chicken fat, etc., in the water when I removed the chicken. I opted to use fresh water to boil the egg noodles. Other than adding additional seasoning, ie., poultry seasoning, garlic powder and seasoned salt, my family really enjoyed this dish. Thanks Dawne!

Mari's Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
Great cupcake recipe! I didn't have any buttermilk so I used sour milk - 1 tsp vinegar plus 3 tbsp milk. Stir to mix and leave on counter to thicken slightly. I added a splash of vanilla to cake batter because I love vanilla! Family loved them so I will definitely make these again!!!

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
I have made the blueberry muffins from this site calling for sour cream or yogurt and although a little skeptical about this recipe, I had some fresh blueberries and thought I'd give them a try based on reviews. I made this recipe exactly as written but omitted the sugar topping. This recipe is absolutely better than any other muffin recipe I have in my collection on this site. I must admit too, using fresh berries as opposed to frozen (which I have used frequently) made a much better tasting muffin! Use fresh berries whenever possible! These muffins were bursting with fresh blueberry flavour. OMG!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2014
This is the pound cake recipe I wanted. The only changes I made to the recipe was to omit the almond extract (didn't have any) and the nutmeg. I added a little more than a tablespoon of pure vanilla extract. I baked in two loaf pans and the texture of the cake is exactly like any store bought -- but better!!! This is at the top of my cake recipes from here on in! Don't have cake flour in the pantry? No problem. For every 1 cup of all purpose flour, remove two tablespoons of flour and replace with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. So for this recipe, I measured 3 cups all purpose flour, removed six tablespoons of flour and replaced with six tablespoons cornstarch. Sifted together and presto, cake flour!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
I refuse to use a prepackaged pancake mix. I had a scratch pancake recipe I have been making for a few years but after reading the reviews for this recipe, I had to try it. I have pitched that old recipe and this is now my go-to for fluffy, light tasting, delicious pancakes!!! The only change I made was to use butter in the pan instead of cooking spray. I realized too, that preheating the stove to medium heat is key to a great, perfectly cooked pancake. Patience though is key, allowing each side to cook properly. Thanks Kris for a great tasting pancake!!!

Fabulous Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2014
OMG! I had never made beef tenderloin before today. Like many other reviewers, I was surprised, no, shocked at the price per pound but I thought, hell, we deserve it so I bought a 2 lb tenderloin. I cooked it exactly as written until it was medium well. I hadn't told hubby how much this meat was per pound until he started to eat it. He said it was absolutely the best he had ever eaten so then I told him how much! We're not rich, but I can tell you, we'll be eating beef tenderloin on a regular basis from now on. Not sure why some reviewers thought the content of soya and butter was too salty. We didn't find that to be the case at all! I didn't use the drippings though which may have made it more salty. I chose instead, to make an au jus to drizzle over the meat and potatoes. Thank you to the Wrights for an excellent recipe!!!!!! This recipe was absolutely amazing and even better than any beef dish we've had in restaurants!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
I made this bread for the second time this morning. The first time I made it, it didn't turn out the way I had hoped, but it was my fault! First, I decreased the sugar - only used 1/3 cup; second, I used my stand mixer with the bread hook but obviously didn't knead the bread as long as I should have because I could taste the yeast. This time I used the 2/3 cup sugar called for and kneaded the dough in the stand mixer until the dough was crawling up the bread hook. When I took it out of the bowl, I continued to knead it by hand for a few minutes more, ensuring all the ingredients were well mixed. The end result was two perfect loaves, that baked up perfectly in 30 minutes. I couldn't resist the smell of the fresh baked bread and cut a couple of slices right away! Absolutely amazing and what surprised me, is the sugar was not overpowering in the finished loaf! Having nailed this recipe, I am not sure I'll ever use my bread machine again!

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2013
A great muffin, quick and easy to mix and bake. I read some of the reviews before making these muffins for the first time. I prefer brown sugar so as a few readers suggested, I used it instead of white sugar and also used canned peaches, reserving the juice and using the juice in place of oil for a healthier muffin. They baked up in 25 minutes and were excellent right out of the oven with butter. This recipe has been added to my favourites and I'll be making it all the time.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
I was looking for a better recipe than the one I currently make. I read the reviews and although I too, will admit that there is a little more work to this recipe (more ingredients), I decided to try it for my hubby's card night. I put the sauce ingredients together and allowed the meat sauce to simmer for about four hours on low before assembling the lasagna to cook in the oven. The guys raved about the end result and even asked for seconds! My only regret, is that the overall depth of the dish was at the top of my 13 x 9 baking dish so I may have to scale back on layers next time. Make sure you allow the dish to sit on the counter for at least 20 minutes before serving which allows the lasagna to set up allowing you to serve without a gloppy mess! Nicer presentation! Serve with salad and you're good to go. Leftovers freeze well in individual servings. This is now my "go to" lasagna!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2013
I love a good cream cheese frosting but I'm sorry, I definitely tweaked it. I used 4 oz of softened cream cheese, about 6 oz of softened butter, 3 huge tbsp. of corn syrup and a good splash of vanilla extract. Mixed until well blended and light in texture. Added icing sugar 1/2 cup at a time until I thought I had enough to frost my cake. If needed, add a tsp of milk or cream to frosting to blend. If too soft, just add a little more icing sugar until you get the consistency you wish for frosting your cake.

Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
Great rib recipe. I did make a few modifications based on other review recommendations. I used coke instead of water, an entire can as I had more than three pounds of ribs to cook. I added about 4 cloves of minced garlic and a huge "dollup" of liquid smoke. Hubby absolutely loved the ribs and it is now my "go to" recipe for back ribs!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Sorry, the concept of brown sugar in a meatloaf intrigued me but I cannot use ketchup in meatloaf. I prefer a good barbeque sauce instead. I omitted the milk completely and used a package of stuffing mix instead; crumble the bread crumbs right in the packet before opening and putting in the meat mixture. Adds a great flavor and texture.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
We love this marinade! Since we only buy boneless, skinless chicken breasts now, I'm happy to have a new marinade that adds something to an otherwise bland piece of chicken, especially if done in the oven. We barbequed the chicken and the marinade created a great crispy coating and the meat was very moist despite cooking the chicken to 170F. Thanks for a great marinade. It's now my go-to for chicken!

Peanut Butter Balls III

I have been making these sweet treats for years too! Try rolling them in coconut instead of dipped in chocolate! OMG, they are super addictive!

Moist and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
After reading some of the reviews, I offer these tips; use butter and add in a generous amount of peanut butter. Beat until light and fluffy before adding other ingredients. Rather than flatten the cookies with a fork, use a cookie scoop and leave dough as a scoop on cookie sheet to bake. Cookies will spread while baking but will not flatten out and therefore you will enjoy a great chewy p.b. cookie! One final tip; before placing batter on cookie sheets, take a small scoop and roll in your hands, if the dough is too "greasey" add a little bit more flour to the dough. Perfect cookie dough uses butter at room temp (not microwaved for any length of time)!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
Just made this recipe and the only changes I made after reading other reviews, was to use oil instead of melted butter and added a splash of pure vanilla extract. Great muffin, good rise during 20 minutes baking time. This is my new go to breakfast muffin recipe. Next time, I am going to add oats to the crumb topping. Brown sugar was maybe a little too sweet but definitely want to incorporate a crumb topping every time. Love them!!

Maple Glazed Turkey Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Wow, what a great recipe! I had two medium sized turkey breasts so I doubled the recipe so that I would have enough glaze to baste them a few times during cooking. The skin roasted perfectly and the meat inside was moist and tasty. So easy to prepare and keep an eye on during the cooking. I even made my own cranberry sauce from this site to serve with the turkey and can honestly say, I will never, ever buy canned cranberry sauce EVER again. Simple to make and a great compliment to this fantastic turkey recipe. Thanks so much!

Cranberry Apple Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
I tried this sauce with turkey tonight. Hubby normally only wants the canned jelly cranberry and I just can't bring myself to open any more cans of that stuff! I loved the idea of combining apple juice and cranberries. Before preparing, I read the reviews and noted that some readers warned it was a little tart and some sugar may need to be added. They were right. The sauce definitely would have been too tart for us so I added 1/4 cup white sugar to the mixture when it was cooking on the stove but have noted that it needs more next time. Great recipe though and definitely my go-to recipe from here on in!!!
