Honey Crunch Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2002
This pie is awesome. I was very impressed with the results. It presents well and tastes great!! I will be making this one again. The only difficulty was covering the edges of the crust with tin foil. Any suggestions?

Orange Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2005
Delicious and different. The only changes I would make are a little less orange juice, and a little more chicken stock. The orange flavour was a little over-powering.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This is a fabulous and easy recipe for rolls. I made 12 (instead of 24) and increased the cooking time to 25-30 minutes. They were deeelicious!!! I will definitely bemaking them again. Next time I will try making 24. I'm wondering if these can be made in advance, put in the fridge and then popped in the oven to bake right before dinner time... this I will try next time.

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
So very delicious! I doubled the recipe to fit a 9x13 pan and it turned out fabulous. Tip for bottom layer: To avoid curdling the egg, I beat the eggs in a separate bowl and slowly added 1/2 cup of the melted cocoa mixture to the egg while whisking, then slowly added the egg mixture to the rest of the cocoa mix while whisking. Turned out perfect!

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
This was a delicious recipe that needed a few minor modifications. To speed up the cook time, I sautéed boneless skinless chicken breasts and thighs (equal amounts of each) in 2 tbsp butter with 3 cloves of garlic. Then added the thyme, basil, salt and pepper - double the spices the recipe calls for. Then added 4C. of prepared chicken broth and the veggies. Made the dumplings as written and they were fabulous! The stew is a little runnier than we are used to but it was delicious and the dumplings thickened the stew up a little bit. I will be making this again soon. Great comfort food on a cold day.

Banana Oatmeal Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
LOVED this recipe. Turned out perfectly and it is so easy to make. I took it to work this morning and it is gone (30 min into the work day). The only modification I made was to use pecans instead of walnuts. This is a keeper. Oh, and as per the other reviewers this is delicious warm out of the oven, but even better the next day.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I made this for a New Years Eve party and it was a hit. Tons of people asked me for the recipe. Deeeelicious! I used marinated (drained) artichoke hearts and sour cream instead or mayo (since this is what I had on hand) and mixed the mozzarella in with the dip. I will be making this again and again until Richard Simmons comes knocking at my door... Thanks for the great recipe!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Wow! This was GOOD. I will not be going out for wings any more. Made 2 cahanges to the sauce: Added 2 tbsp hotsauce. Added 1 tsp white vinegar. So good. The coating on the wings was great, and will be a good base for other sauces.

Southwestern Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2008
This is a delicious pasta salad and it looks pretty too. I followed some other advice and doubled the cumin and added a tsp of sugar. Also added about a 1/4 cup of chives to give it a kick. Didn't give it 5 starts because it does taste like something is missing... I just can't put my finger on it.

Azuki Ice Cream (Japanese Red Beans Ice Cream)

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
This was just OK. Not as good as most red bean ice creams i've had. It took a long time to make (with the beans boiling) and tasted great out of the ice cream maker, but after sitting in the freezer over night it had a flaky consistancy and tasted much grittier than I would like. My husband loved the way it tates and would probably give it at least 4 stars, but since I spent all that time - I give it only 2. I followed the recipe exactly as written.

Orange Mini Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
This recipe would be good on it's own, and is much better the next day once the orange flavor has a chance to go through the muffin. I made these changes (and would have rated it 5-star) - added 3/4 cup chopped dried cranberries - drizzled the muffins with a glaze while they were still warm Glaze: 1/2C Icing sugar 1/2 tsp Orange zest 4 tsp Orange juice. Then they were fantastic!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I gave this 3 starts because it was tasty but not WOW-delicious. Even with adding an extra egg and sour cream it was still dry. The chocolate flavour was perfect, but the texture is definitely too dry. I'll keep looking for the perfect chocolate muffin... sigh... if I must eat more chocolate :-)

Eggnog Royale

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
I made this recipe last night for a company Christmas party held at my house. It did not go over well. Only three people tried it (myself included) and no one went back for a second glass. The colour is kind of off-putting and with the pieces of floating ice cream it looks rather unappetizing. The flavour was not horrible, but it wasn't very good either. I will not be making this recipe again.

Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Wow this pizza is GOOD! We've made it a few times and it is fantastic. We use left over chicken strips and Kraft blue cheese dressing. This pizza was a hit at our 2009 New Years party. People kept asking for more! Even those who hate blue cheese loved this pizza. This will be a keeper at our house. Thanks for the great recipe.

Brunch Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This was quite tasty! Everyone really liked it and it was a great dish to make in advance. Other than using sausage instead of ham I followed the recipe exactly. I will make this one again.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
What a great recipe! It is easy, and tastes fantastic! The only changes I made, were cutting up the chicken into cubed before tossing it in the flour mixture, used crushed tomatoes, and I used 1/2 Chipotle chili powder and 1/2 regular chili powder. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly as written. I will be making this again, and again, and again.... Served it over basmati rice. Thanks Nancy for the delicious recipe!!
