I made this exactly as directed and I think it's the best salsa ever. No more store bought for this family

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
I made this cake today to use up some strawberries that I had. I didn't have whole milk so I made some butter milk to use instead. I then realized I didn't have any strawberry jello powder so I used raspberry instead. I cut the sugar to 1 3/4 cups but kept everything else the same. I read almost all of the reviews and was a little hesitant to try it but what the heck, let's go for it. Well, I decided to bake it in a bundt pan and baked it for 50 mins. It rose beautifully and smelled awesome. After removing from the pan when cool, this was easy too, I mixed some of the puree with some cream cheese and icing sugar. It turned out great, beautiful colour and texture, not dense at all. I did make sure to thoroughly cream the butter, sugar and jello powder so it wouldn't be grainy. I didn't separate the eggs either, just added when called for. I used my immersion blender to create the puree. Didn't bother putting it through the strainer. Worked great. I've added some pics if anyone is interested in seeing how it came out. I doubt it is going to last long. Everyone loves it.!!!! For those of you who thought it tasted artificial, I recommend not to use sugar free jello, it has chemical sweetners in it.

Paleo Omelet Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
I love this recipe. i used 12 eggs, and 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 orange pepper, 3 green onions, and ham. I also added some hot mustard powder, about a tsp, and some Gruyere cheese, some Parmesan and sprinkled with grated old cheddar before baking. I also whipped the eggs before any additions and they rose up like Yorkshire Puddings. Light and fluffy on the inside, so delicious. I got 12 medium muffins. Going to freeze for my son while I'm on holiday. Thanks for the recipe

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2013
I'm not a great lover of muffins as I find most of them too sweet. I made these tonight and followed a reviewers advice and used apple sauce and cut down on the sugar, added a dash of vanilla (from Mexico, excellent) and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice along with all the other spices. I added the walnuts and a handful of cranberries ( I just love them). The recipe made 12 medium muffins and one small loaf. This is an excellent recipe, the muffins are light with a wonderfully light texture and spicy pumpkin aroma. I bought a small, fresh, pumpkin and put the whole thing in the oven on a tray and cooked it on low for a couple of hours. I also used farm fresh eggs. OMG, fantastic. I have enough pumpkin left for at least 3 dozen more muffins and 3 loaves. I'll be making that tomorrow and freezing for the holidays. Thanks for the recipe :)

Mary Wynne's Crabapple Jelly

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2013
I have been making crabapple jelly every couple of years (the trees only have apples every second year here). I had lost my recipe and was so glad to find this. I followed the recipe as written and the jelly is wonderful. Great in my Christmas baskets. Thank you

Phyllo Turnovers with Shrimp and Ricotta Filling

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
Made these as directed and they came out beautifully. Didn't have green pepper so used yellow. Tasted great. Took a little practice to get the triangle right, but then all was good. I always soak a clean tea towel and wring it out to lay over the unused phyllo as I go. Also brushed with butter before baking. Soooooo good. would maybe turn the heat down 25 degrees but that is probably just my oven. Will definitely make again. Was thinking of using pasta and stuffing it with this mix. Thanks for the great recipe

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
I made this using whipping cream and it worked perfectly, used it in cheesecake and the result was great, will never buy store brands again. So easy, I just used my candy thermometer and let the mixture come to 220 degrees, cooled and it was ready.

Whiskey Paralyzer

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
I made these with a cheaper brand of Canadian whiskey. Really good, I'll try with rum. One last thing, both CC and Crown Royal should be enjoyed straight up or with ice.

Irish Potato Candy

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This is a great recipe, very easy and looks just like little potatoes, so cute. I took advice from the reviewer who said to chill between steps. That worked really well. I got about 48-50 (someone kept stealing them before I could count) I mixed icing sugar with the cinnamon before rolling them. These are great. Thanks for the recipe.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
I just made this cake and it is lovely. I like walnuts so I used them instead of pecans. I also used 1 1/2 cups of sugar as per other reviewers suggestions and a few more blueberries. I was having a bit of a problem getting the cake out of the pan but I used a wooden skewer and loosened it around the edges and middle. I think I'll cut down on the brown sugar next time as this cake is very sweet. I mixed some blueberries with some vanilla yogurt and spooned a little on top when I served it. MMMMM So Good.
