Chinky's Mango Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
I made this into muffins. I think it is a good basic recipe for mangoes. I played with many of the quantities (less sugar, less oil, didn't have all the mango called for) and I added about a teaspoon of nutmeg just because I felt like it and probably doubled the raisins. Anyway, the muffins are great, not amazing, but very good. They also freeze very well. I think the basic recipe is good and leaves lots of room for successful customizing.

Mom's Best Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2004
OMG this is good stuff. I had some trouble with the fork thing, in the end I kind of smushed it around with the buttered back of a wooden spoon. You have to work really fast as it hardens almost instantly (you can put the cookie sheet back on the still-warm burner to loosen it up if necessary). I made it exactly per the recipe and it was wonderful. My S.O. thinks it's even better than store bought. Scores high in taste and ease. I've already made 3 batches.

Best Ever Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2004
These were really good. Everyone was so impressed to see homemade cinnamon buns, but they really weren't hard at all. I rolled them and cut them and then froze them right in the pan. Later I took them out, let them thaw and double in size and then baked. They turned out perfect.

Bacon Cheddar Chive Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2004
These turned out great. I served them to 15 people for breakfast and received lots of compliments on them. I left the recipe exactly as is and it seemed to turn out perfectly.

Southern Living magazine's Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2004
This was so good. I made a double batch, cooked it and froze it. It was great re-heated too. I didn't find it soggy (make sure you let it "rest" for 8 hours), and it smelled great. I can't say enough. It was a great way to serve a crowd, and everyone liked it.

Chocolate Spoons

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2003
Works perfectly. I wrapped mine in a square of cello wrap and tied with a bit of ribbon. Note that if you put them in the fridge right away you may get a sugar bloom (as I did). You may want to let the chocolate cool to room temperature before putting in the fridge - this should avoid the problem.

Breaded Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2003
I used breadcrumbs instead of stuffing, and I had no curry powder. This recipe was quite good. The chicken took quite a bit longer than the recipe said, but the coating came out fairly crunchy and overall the chicken tasted good. It is a simple and straight forward recipe, both in preparation and taste.

Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2003
We didn't really like these much. I have a "cookie monster" at home and these are the first cookies I've made that sat around the house for more than about 10 minutes - 2 days in fact. They were nothing special which was surprising considering all the yummy bits and pieces that went into them. We followed the recipe and the results were disappointing. I really can't explain why everyone else seems to give these 5 stars, but I won't be making these again.

Butterscotch Brownies in a Jar

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2003
These brownies are really good. They rise quite a bit and come out cake-like. I only gave it 4 stars because it really does need a modification to the recipe - butterscotch chips added. I added the chips and the brownies were great. Without them you are relying on the brown sugar alone, it's just not enough.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew III

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
This was a good basic stew. I did cook it overnight and all the next day. This made my cheap cut of beef very tender. It has a nice "comfort food" kind of quality to it.

Cookie Mix in a Jar VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
These tasted good. I don't know what happened though 1) I substituted crispy crunch bars for peanut butter cups, 2) I let my boyfriend mix and bake the cookies. These cookies tasted fine, although the only real taste was the chocolate bar chunks the rest of the cookie was fairly bland, but they kept trying to fall apart after baking and were a bit messy to eat. They were cookies after all, but I was expecting something a little more decadent.

Cookie Mix in a Jar III

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2003
These cookies were really delicious. I made up a double batch for my pantry and then mix up a batch when we want cookies instead of buying pre-mixed. They had great flavour and were nice and soft. I always substitute applesauce for the fat, and the apple added a great touch to these.

Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
These were very quick and easy. They weren't quite the best I've had. There was just a little something missing in the flavour, perhaps just the pan drippings. They were certainly thick & fluffy. Came out golden brown and soaked up lots of gravy. Very good easy recipe.

Chocolate Cookie Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2003
These cookies were really yummy. Lots of chocolate, and moist. I doubled the batch and mixed it all up, then packed it into 4 500ml (1/2 quart) jars as my own premade cookie mix. When I want cookies I mix up a jar (I use 1 egg for each jar) and I get about 15 nice sized cookies. It takes only a few minutes to prepare and we get fresh homemade cookies any night of the week.

Good Dog Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2003
The dog went nuts for these. She'll do anything for even a piece. This dough will make way more than a dozen treats. I used a small cutter to make bite sized treats. Roll the dough thicker for soft treats and thinner for harder treats. I easily made 45 treats and then froze the other half of the dough to make later.

Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2003
I've made these a couple times, they always come out very dry. I will try the chicken stock as recommended - sounds like just what it needs. They are quite good, just a bit dry and I think a little more flavour is in order, again perhaps serving with tzatsiki as recommended by some reviewers. Overall a good lower fat substitute for beef burgers.

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2003
These ribs were really good. I followed the recipe almost exactly except I used Apple Cider Vinegar. The sauce was really good, but didn't coat the ribs as much as I would have liked. Even using the full ration of ketchup (unlike others) it came out tasting very much like barbeque sauce. We really liked them, but they weren't "mind-blowing" good.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2003
This really is a great recipe. Not your same old everyday meatloaf. The brown sugar and ketchup crust, I think, is really the secret to this one. I love this recipe just as written.

Amaretto Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2003
This recipe is very tasty. I would dice up the capers next time to spread the flavour more evenly, otherwise perfect as is. It freezes wonderfully too. Very yummy and pretty simple.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2003
I would give it 10 stars if I could. My boyfriend doesn't like salmon, so I needed something really special. This was wonderful. We both loved it. It was possibly the best salmon I've ever had. I made it ahead and froze it, then just warmed it up. It froze beautifully, and came out crispy and sweet. I can't wait to have it again. Very easy to make too.
