Pumpkin Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
These are great! I love that they're fall-flavoured in a mellow way. I made them in a 9" pan and just spread the 2 flavours one on top of the other. Baked for about 35 mins, and they're perfect! Fudgey and delicious. (omitted the nuts)

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2012
These great brownies will be my go-to from now on. I was too lazy for the frosting, so I just sprinkled some chocolate chips on the hot brownies, allowed them to melt, and spread the chocolate around. Looking forward to trying different add-ins (maybe caramels?) and frostings for variety!

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
I substituted oil for butter, regular potatoes for the sweet potatoes (what I had on hand) and a full can of cooked lentils for the dried (added them near the end of the simmer-time). Turned out great! Perfectly spiced.

Guyanese Lime Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
These are awesome! I make cookies frequently, and I'm tired of the same old flavours. So glad I tried these! The spices are subtle in these; I'd describe them as lime-flavoured sugar cookies. I added 2 egg yolks, due to other comments. I'll be making these again.

Christmas Pinwheel Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
I made this recipe twice with different colours/patterns. Easy to work with and very tasty! Couldn't ask for more than that

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
I used this recipe for a potluck and got lots of compliments! It out-shined my other (more complicated) dishes! Of course I made some changes based on what ingredients I had on hand, but I believe this recipe is a keeper!

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
These are some confusing cookies. On first bite, I thought it was very very delicious. However, they're so sweet and "fat" tasting I find each additional bite less and less appealing. They remind me a lot of the cookies they sell at Subway, which I find have the same problem. Could be just me though! As recommended by others, I added 1 tsp vanilla and 3 cups oats. Baked for 8 mins.

Apple Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Really good! My boyfriend described it as "banana bread with apples" which is a pretty accurate picture. I made a couple changes based on suggestions: half white sugar, half brown, and I replaced the 1/2 cup butter with 1/4 cup butter and 1/8 cup oil. I also probably increased the apples; I used 4 smallish, chopped fine. All together, very good! I might try adding some sort of crumb topping next time.. because I can't leave recipes well enough alone!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
I tried this recipe once, and while it turned out fine, it wasn't up to the standard of the other recipe on this site, "buttery soft pretzels". I found these to be a little flavourless and not as good a texture.

Death by Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Really delicious. I did as another reviewer suggested and baked a chocolate cake (I used chocolate oil cake on this site) as a base and layered the mousse on top. Really good, and looked very impressive! Really rich though; next time I'm going to bring it to somebody else's house to they can take care of the inevitable leftovers!

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
These are exactly what I expected, soft brownie-like chocolate cookies. Basic, but also perfect as they are. They went fast!

Boston Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
First off, I didn't make the filling because I got lazy and used vanilla pudding mix instead. But the cake (and glaze, but mostly the cake!) was very good. No complaints at all! I baked it as cupcakes; it made 11 and they baked for 15 minutes.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Super easy, and everyone agreed that this is the perfect traditional pumpkin pie.

Orange Pumpkin Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Delicious! Note that the dominant flavour is orange, not pumpkin. I made it exactly as the recipe states, except mine took about 75 mins to cook. Next time I'll line my pan in parchment paper because the bottom stuck. Will make again for sure.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
Mmm, very good! This is my new favourite banana recipe! I made it exactly as written, except instead of butter I used half oil, half apple sauce, and I added 1tsp cinnamon to the batter. It made 12 large muffins which I baked for 25 minutes. Delicious, and with most of the butter replaced, pretty healthy too!

Baked Spaghetti Squash with Beef and Veggies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
I thought the taste of this recipe was good, but mine turned out very juicey. I might try using 2 squashes next time and see if that helps. I'd also probably cut the cheese down for health reasons; there's a LOT of cheese in the recipe! I made the recipe exactly as written, save I used faux beef as a vegetarian.

Orange Raisin Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
YUM! Really good, as a coffee cake or a morning snack! I took someone's advice and added the topping before baking; it worked nicely. I might omit the cinnamon in the topping next time, because I'm not 100% certain it works with the orange flavour. But otherwise, very good cake!! And I love using the WHOLE orange!

Baked Oatmeal Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
This is exactly what I was looking for, a tasty portable version of oatmeal that's just as healthy. I made a couple changes: applesauce for oil, 1/4 cup brown sugar instead of 1/2 white, and all raisins (no nuts). Turned out great! And so easy! yay

Chocolate Chip Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
Pretty tasty! For those who like sugar pie, this is a nice twist. I made the recipe exactly, except omitting the nuts, and used "Grandma's Secret Pie Crust". Dead easy to make, and everyone enjoyed it. I only took away a star because it didn't totally blow me away (though it's a solid recipe and I'll make it again).

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Cookie perfection!! Super chocolatey and great texture and they look beautiful! I don't think I'll ever make regular chocolate chip cookies again, because of this recipe. I made half the recipe as given, and exchanged the choc chips for white chocolate in the other half. Both were delicious. EDIT: I made these again, and I fancy they're not QUITE as good. I think it's because I used unsalted butter this time. So make sure you use salted butter or add a little salt to the recipe.
