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!

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.

Holiday Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
I absolutely LOVE this recipe! It is the exact one my grandma used to make every Christmas. Definitely use celery seed and garlic powder instead of their saltier counterparts. And I use 1/4 tsp of cayenne and it is perfect. This makes a HUGE cheeseball, so I make it into four little balls and freeze them and take them out if company's coming. They are even better after they've been frozen. :-) OH, and I use old Cheddar. Can't lose.

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.

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!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
Very good recipe! Nice and fresh, but a little too sweet for me. Next time I make this (and there will definitely be a next time) I will cut the sugar by a third. Otherwise, this is a perfect salad!

Sooooooooo delicious! I used frozen wild blueberries - just tossed them in frozen and had great results. Not runny at all. Used the French Pastry Pie Crust from this site and it was flaky and simple to make. Will definitely make tis again.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
A delicious cake with beautiful presentation. Perfect for the holidays. I used a 7" springform pan and made a smaller cake with more height. It baked perfectly with the time/temp listed in the recipe. This would be a great cake with any fruit/nut combo. Next time I am making apple/pecan topping. Thanks for the great recipe!

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?

Warm Dijon Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
Mommykirsten, thanks for the great recipe! It was so good!! The only change I made was adding some sliced celery and I did not use the green onion because I didn't have any. Made the dressing an hour in advance and left it in the fridge until the potatoes were ready. Very tasty and easy side dish.

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
These were quite good. I made them as written, but it was really HOT. Now, I love all things hot, but this one even had my eyes watering. I will be making this recipe again since it was so delicious and easy but I'll reduce the cayenne to 2 tsp instead of tablespoons. Thanks for the great recipe!
