Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2005
This is a really great recipe. I followed it to a T except that I made 16 rolls, not 12. Really good....and good HOT right out of the oven.

Don't change a thing. Good as is, and also with added nuts, seeds and dried fruit.

Banana Bread IV

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
VEGAN VERSION I used flax seed n'eggs instead of the eggs (Grind flax seeds in a coffee grinder...1/4 cup seeds pre-grinding per 3/4 cup cold water...1/3 of that mixture makes 1 n'egg...so make sure you use enough for the eggs called for). I used non-hydrogenated vegan margerine. Earth Balance. YUM! I used one extra banana for extra moistness. SO good. SO dense. SO moist. Quite easy. OH, and I used mostly brown sugar as well.

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2004
I made 21 muffins out of this recipe (filled the muffin tins to the brim) and baked for nearly 25 minutes. I poked holes in the tops of the muffins while they were still warm and drizzled an icing sugar/orange juice glaze, suggested by another reveiwer, over the tops of the muffins. OH WOW were these a taste sensation! I also found it best to add another tablespoon of orange zest.

Oven Fried Chicken IV

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
I may have added a bit more garlic powder and a bit of paprika to the cornflakes, but otherwise I followed this recipe to a T. FABULOUS. It was crispy all over as I baked it on oven rack which I had greased (and put a cookie sheet under it to catch the drippings. My new favourite!

Blueberry Crumble

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2004
This is really good! Yes, sweet, but aren't desserts supposed to be sweet? I made mine with a can of apple pie filling and a small handful of fresh blueberries thrown in (it's what I had). I added a teaspoon or so of cinnamon to the cake mix and omitted the lemon juice. And I used walnuts instead of pecans. Nummy

Creamed Carrot Strips

Reviewed: May 7, 2004
I found this recipe to be simple and really really good. Everyone in my family raved about it, and ate it "all gone" (a feat). I did not use the mushrooms, as I was out, but it turned out well. I added a bit more chicken broth and it gave it a little more sauce. Mmmmm what a great way to eat your veggies!

Cream of Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
Absolutely delish! I agree...4 teaspoons of chicken bouillon powder. Everyone is right, it doesn't NEED the 1/2 and 1/2 but adding it makes it SO good ;) I'm going to try to use this as a basis for a homemade cream of tomato soup. Mmmmmm!

Mama Bear's Porridge

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
I was excited to try this, but me and my two kids (nine and two) really didn't like this much. We LOVE oatmeal and porridge as a rule...but I guess we just really did not like the addition of the eggs. I am sure some will like this, but to us, it was just kind of slimy (even though I left the pot on the stove while stirring in the eggs...which I tempered first, by the way, to avoid curdling). We won't be eating this again.

Indiana-Style Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
We really enjoyed this recipe. That being said, I did change a couple of things. I did not add the butter but did not drain the bacon (there was only about a tablespoon and a half of drippings...maybe we used lean bacon??). When I added the veggies, I did not cover it, but fried it on medium heat, uncovered--stirring every 2 minutes or so--for about 12 minutes. This gave it a bit of a brown or "fried" taste. THEN I covered it and turned it down to low and let it steam for another 10 minutes or so. I added a minced clove of garlic and only half of a pepper (as we aren't huge pepper fans). Otherwise, we followed the recipe. Again, REALLY good.

Ginny's Cheezy Macaroni

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
This was the easiest thing ever to put together!!!!! I made a few additions, though, as my family likes a doctored up macaroni and cheese: I added six hot dogs (sliced) to the macaroni. I added a small can of diced tomatoes, 1 Tablespoon of prepared mustard and 1/2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce and 2 Tablespoons of diced onion to the milk before I poured it over the top. I also added a bit more cheese (a 1/2 cup more???). Otherwise, I did everything according to the directions. It was quite moist with a nice crust of browned cheese on top. The flavour was FABULOUS and all in all we really liked it. We don't usually eat a baked macaroni and cheese, but this was SO easy and SO flavourful!!! A definate keeper.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
My family absolutely LOVES this recipe. I'm not a big pot roast fan...nor roast of any kind for that matter, but this apparently is right up my carnivorous husband's alley. He asks for it all the time!

Midwestern House Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2004
I've made this twice now, and end up quadrupling the Worcestershire sauce, omit the honey and add more brown sugar and add LOTS more pepper. It is still pretty tame for my taste, but my husband and son LOVE it!

Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2004
I used only a 1/4 cup of nuts. A combination of sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and coconut (all raw). I used raisins instead of choc. chips. I also added a 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon. They turned out really nummy! OH, and btw...I screwed up with the measurements of the nuts. I MEANT to add the full 1/2 cup...but for whatever reason I only ended up with a 1/4 cup. Whatever...still good. But in the future I'd use more nuts/seeds. I think this would also be good with sunflower seeds.

Hot Fudge Sauce II

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
This was very good AND easy to make. I also halved the recipe and only used 2/3 of a cup of evap. milk. Be careful that you bring the sauce to a boil over a med-low heat...it is very easy to burn the chocolate and it gives it a burnt flavour that is NOT good. It takes a long time to get it to boil at this temp, but it is worth it!

Chinese Style Sesame Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2004
This was excellent. I found that for a little over a pound of chicken (stirfried) I only needed a little over a third of this sauce. I froze the rest...I hope it freezes well. I also added 1 Tbsp of toasted sesame seeds to the chicken/sauced dish. VERY GOOD. Reminiscent of food court chinese food.

Sweet and Sour Pork I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
I found this recipe really easy, but I did not deep fry the pork...just did it as directed in 2 Tbsp of oil for 10 minutes. With constant stirfrying it did not burn at all....SO tasty! We had it over crispy fried chinese noodles YUM
