Sara's Awesome Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Excellent recipe! Make it a couple of days ahead though as this bread definitely improves with age! I added honey roasted sunflower seeds to the batter and also sprinkled more seeds on the top of the loaf before baking. The crunch of the sweetened seeds was excellent!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
OMG, this recipe is absolutely delish! I did modify the recipe slightly - decreased flour to 3 cups, omitted water, in lieu of 3 cups white sugar, changed it to 2 cups white and 1 cup slightly packed brown. I was looking to copy Tim Horton's pumpkin spice muffins and think I came close by adding about 1 cup of honey roasted sunflower seeds to batter and sprinkling about half a cup on top of loaves before baking - this recipe made 2 large loaves. This recipe is definitely one of our all time new favourites!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
This is absolutely the best blueberry muffin recipe I have tried. I now bake this recipe at least two times a week. I cut the recipe in half but make a few alterations. I use half whole wheat and half all purpose flour works best. I use frozen blueberries and just pour them right from the pkg. until I think there is enough (approx. 2 cups) and bake them in a mini loaf pan for 30 minutes in a 375 oven and have eight beautiful breakfast loaves that my family absolutely loves! N.B.: you can easily substitute vanilla yogurt for the sour cream if you like - both ways taste great! I add 1 tsp baking powder for better baking results -- higher tops on the muffins.

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
Excellent recipe! But of course, I modified it slightly - used orange juice concentrate right from tin (undilulted). I also used vanilla yogurt in place of buttermilk. I baked them as directed but used mini loaf pans for a great size breakfast muffin. I'll definitely make this recipe again!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Excellent recipe! I made it exactly as writer's recipe was written. Only changes I will make next time is to omit the white sugar and cinnamon topping altogether -- too much sugar, and I will add pumpkin pie spice to the apples.

Butter Tart Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
I had all the ingredients on hand so I thought I'd check these muffins out. I may have cooked the raisin mixture too long or maybe I didn't cool it in the fridge long enough. In any event, my muffins didn't look anything like the picture here. When I added the mixture to the flour mixture, the batter was awfully thick. No problem, I used a soup spoon and put the muffin mixture in the pan. Baked them for the suggested time and although they don't look like the writer's pic, they tasted pretty darn good! I'll definitely make them again but will watch how long I heat the raisin mixture on the stove.

Cherry Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Excellent recipe! I have made this cake twice in less than a week and although I've been known to tweek the ingredients, I had no need to with this recipe. Okay, the only thing I did change the second time I made it, was to add lots and lots of cherries! For me, the recipe made two loaves. I absolutely love it and am so happy to have found a delicious pound cake FINALLY!

The Best Steak Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Excellent marinade. The first time I made this, I didn't change the recipe at all; however, we found the balsamic vinegar at little too over powering. The next time I used red wine vinegar and it was excellent! I also add 1/2 tsp baking soda to break down a little of the fat during the marinade process. I typically like to marinade my steaks overnight. The flavours are way more intense and flavourful!!!

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
Excellent recipe! Like many of the other reviewers, I too, have been looking for a new corn bread recipe and this one is definitely a keeper! I did not change a single thing, only the baking pan; I baked the corn bread in a 9" x 9" square baking pan for 20 minutes. Absolutely love this recipe!!!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
This has been my p.b. recipe for years, with the exception of baking powder! I'll try adding it to my cookie dough recipe the next time I make these. I no longer roll the batter into balls. Instead, I use a cookie scoop and leave the dough as is when it's dropped on the cookie sheet. I get a cookie that spreads a bit and makes for a great chewy on the inside with crisp edges on the outside. I could make these cookies every week and have a happy husband. He absolutely loves them! Prep Tip: Never, ever microwave the butter to soften it! If it is too soft, it will change the entire recipe and you'll end up with cookie batter you could wring out! Thirty minutes on the kitchen counter will soften the butter enough to work with in your electric mixer. Also, if you want to ensure the cookie dough is the right consistency for baking, take a bit of the dough and roll it in your hands. If the dough doesn't stick to your hands, it's good to bake!!! If it is a bit sticky, just add a little bit of flour, maybe a 1/4 cup at a time, until you have the right consistency for baking. This is something I do frequently because I don't measure the peanut butter so if I've added too much, I'll need to add more flour at the end.

Something Special Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Excellent recipe; however, I do agree with another reader that the butter may be a tad too much and definitely makes the paper liners greasey. I chose not to process the oats in the food processor, preferring instead, to keep them as is and they add a great texture to the finished product. I think next time, I'll try applesauce in place of the butter. This recipe is really, really good! A keeper!

Butter Tart Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2012
Excellent recipe! The only thing I did differently, was omit the raisins because my husband prefers these bars without them. These bars are a new favourite and will be made again and again!

Easy Peach Crisp I

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
I read some of the reviews and suggestions before making this dessert. I didn't have any apples so I used a can of cherry pie filling as suggested.I used a smaller pan because there wasn't that much pie filling to fill up a large baking dish. I used only half the cake mix and added crumbled oatmeal cookies for some crunch to the cake mix before cutting in cold butter. I baked it for about 35 minutes and could hardly wait to try it. Good recipe but it's still missing something. Perhaps some oats next time.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
Great recipe for a large banana bread. I made two changes to this recipe (sorry). I don't normally use sour cream so I used a vanilla yogurt, similar in texture to sour cream instead. And I too, mashed the bananas before adding them to the mixture. N.B.: To Sandy who's banana bread wasn't baked on the inside -- two possible problems to your dilemma - #1 - bake the loaf on a lower rack rather than in the middle or #2 - your oven might need to be checked - the thermostat may not be working properly. Hope you resolve the oven issues and try this recipe again. IT'S THAT GOOD!

Apple Crisp with Oat Topping

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
Excellent recipe. Before making it, I read the reviews and liked the suggestion of using different apples. I used Honey Crisp and Granny Smith and the combination of these two is very good. I don't use cinnamon very often but do have pumpkin pie spice so I used it instead with good results. The apples I used were big so when they were peeled and sliced, I decided to use a larger baking dish than the 9 inch suggested. I'm glad I did! I made a little extra topping and baked in a 9 x 13 dish. After sampling it hot out of the oven, I know this dessert won't last long. It's a keeper.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I've been craving a good ginger cookie and this recipe is definitely a keeper! I read quite a few reviews before baking them today and opted to use butter as another reader suggested instead of margarine. Also, I added the ginger spice as stated in the recipe but didn't have all the other spices so I used pumpkin pie spice instead which has all the spices rolled into one. These cookies are excellent right out of the oven and they won't have an opportunity to go stale! Note: I might try making them next time with brown sugar instead of white to see if I get a chewier cookie. Thanks for a great soft ginger cookie recipe!

Maple Caramel Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
Great recipe but think it needs raisins, apples, etc. Will definitely make it again! And as another reader suggested, it is excellent with ice cream!!!

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!!!

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!

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!!
