Yummy Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I was concerned because there was no egg! Most quick bread loaves have an egg, so I added one. I also bumped up the spices and cut the brown sugar to 1 scant cup. The applesauce was sweet enough. This was delicious, rose high, and sliced beautifully.

Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
Rave reviews. I dissolved the sugar in a little boiling water first, then added it to the total amount of water. As another reviewer said, just taste it and adjust to your liking! It's not brain surgery. I also made ice cubes from the lemonade the day before, and added them so it wouldn't get watered down. *UPDATE* We had some left over and tasted it the next day; it's true, the sliced lemons make it very strong, almost bitter. If you garnish with pretty lemon slices, be sure to add them just before serving, and remove them if you have leftovers.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
I'm giving this 5 stars for flavour and ease. The change I made was to not use mayo, but creamy Caesar dressing. It was very tasty. I also pre-cooked the bacon in the microwave for about 4 minutes first. At the end, I turned the oven to broil, just to crisp it all up. We enjoyed it.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Oh my! So easy and delicious. I was looking for a yeast-free recipe and came across this little gem. As per one of thew reviews I read, did not put anything in the bottom of the muffin tin (except I did grease with butter). I spread about 2 tablespoons soft butter, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and only 1/2 cup of brown sugar. This was plenty, trust me. I baked for 19 minutes and they were soft and yummy. My son loved them!! ALSO: for those who are putting this down because they didn't like the texture or flavor, of course it will be different than a yeast roll. This is a QUICK BREAD... it's going to be different.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2012
Delicious! I stayed as close to the recipe as possible, but did not have the adobo sauce (too expensive in my area). Added a little honey to the sauce, per the reviews. Garnished as written using tomatoes, cabbage, and lime (no cilantro). I recommend using the smaller tortillas and eating two small instead of one large. Yummy, 5 stars.

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Delicious! I gave 5 stars even though I changed it a little bit (don't hate me!). I made two coffee layers and one white layer. Due to personal preference I did not use the coffee liqueur but just stronger coffee. The mascarpone cheese was just too expensive so I substituted one brick of cream cheese with a small amount of cream, and powdered sugar. Did not poke holes and soak cake but merely brushed the layers with coffee before assembly. I whipped the cream with a little powdered sugar (no coffee or anything else in the frosting), and frosted the cake. Made the day before Easter and let it set up in the fridge. RAVE REVIEWS from everyone!! The comments were "nice and light", and "I love the subtle coffee flavor." I'm so pleased with this recipe!! Will make again sometime.

Monster Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
Delicious! The only change I made was one I had to - left out the nuts due to allergies. I made 1/4 of the recipe and they turned out great. A nice combination of flavours.

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
WOW! If you can get these into the oven without eating the cookie dough, I applaud you! These are fantastic. Baked them exactly 8 minutes. They were soft, chewy, and very fudge-y. Perfection.

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
I was so excited about making this - looked forward to this dinner for days!! I watched the video, knew what to do. After reading the reviews, *** I sliced the breasts in half lengthwise so they were thinner.*** They cooked up fine. I used 3 cloves of garlic, quite a hefty pinch of pepper flakes, and a nice spaghetti sauce that my family likes. It was delicious! It is best straight from the oven so the topping will be crunchy - microwaving leftovers does not work. The crouton topping is very hearty and not for weight watchers... a lot of carbs... may try again without the topping to save some carbs and calories. But the dish was tasty, and easy to make.

Smooth Sailing Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
There certainly are a lot of sugar cookie recipes on this site! How to ever choose? Well, I wanted one with butter, and took on this one. It is silky dough, beautiful taste, rolls beautifully. I was very pleased!!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Thanks for writing down the recipe form the video on this site. However - this recipe is awful. One star is even too many. Per my review on the video page, it is far too wet and it baked up heavy and dense like a brick. I **know** I did not do anything wrong - I have been baking for 35 years. It was not my fault - this recipe is not accurate.

Chocolate Pudding Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
This was outstanding! The ONLY change I made was to use 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar in the topping instead of all brown sugar (personal preference). It was rich and fudge-y and after letting it sit a few minutes, the sauce was wonderful and thick. Dee-lish!!!!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
I am giving this 5 stars for potential and great "bones"! I was confused by some of the reviews which said they only needed 30 minutes in the oven at a high temperature. Mine were nowhere near brown and crunchy and carmelized, but my extended family loved them! There were only 3 sprouts left in the pan! I am calling this a success and will definitely do this again (although, maybe not on Thanksgiving because the oven is needed for so many other things! My bad!).

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
My ONLY difference was to use mini M&M baking bits - I did not have chocolate chips. They were great - soft, chewy, great texture. Do not overbake! Remember they continue to bake on the pan. Take them out at exactly 7 minutes, let them cool one minute, remove. Perfect!

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Husband liked it, I thought it was just OK. Marinated for 2 days as written, cooked it on my indoor grill. I don't know... it was still tough... maybe overcooked? I just can't make a good pork chop! *sob*

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
WOW! This soup was amazing. Hubby proclaimed it both "awesome" and "outstanding". I made it as directed except I used fresh broccoli. It was thick and delicious. I know it will be in regular rotation. NOTE to those who are adding condensed soup, yuk! It doesn't need it for taste, and it's not necessary. It thickens beautifully and tastes great. Condensed soups are artificial and so not needed here. Obviously IMO. Thanks.

Half and Halfs

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Great idea, fun cookies. My substitution was to use shortening. The family thought they were cute and gobbled them up.

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I don't like to review a recipe when I have changed it, but this one had great "bones" and we enjoyed it very much. Did not use the shallots, fresh tomatoes, or cilantro, but DID use the curry paste, curry powder, and coconut milk as directed; I also used a small can of diced tomatoes instead. Thickened it up with a little flour in the cocount milk and stirred it in. Served it with sticky rice, and cole slaw. Will make again! Dee-lish.

Festive Shortbread Logs

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
I used the basic shortbread recipe; did not dip them this time (I may do so for the next batch). The basic recipe is delicious, very tender and true to the "shortbread" taste we are looking for at Christmas. This is a very versatile recipe; you could decorate them in a number of ways. Delicious.

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Trying this new recipe as my old gingerbread men recipe leaves me disappointed. This was very nice; my substitutions were brown sugar for the white, molasses for the corn syrup, and omitted the orange. Next time I will cut the sugar - still very sweet. But 5 stars nonetheless. Thanks!!
