Sour Cream Apple Pie Deluxe

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
The recipe was great, but like others, I revised it a bit; I added nutmeg and oats so the top of the pie was more of a crumble. ***I made this again for the second time the other day and changed my rating from 4 to 5 - I forgot just how good this pie is!!! I love adding the oat topping during the last couple of minutes for a bit of extra crunch and flavour.

Banana-Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
As suggested, I added more zucchini and bananas. I also have really big loaf pans (there are only 2 of us in the house), so I make them in muffin pans and bake for a shorter amount of time. They are really moist and they go in no time!

Crisp 'n' Chewy Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
These were ok. I did as suggested by others and added a little bit more sugar and one more egg. They stayed together nicely this way. I couldn't find Butterfingers (maybe they don't have them in Canada anymore?) so I used Crispy Crunch bars which are similar. These were good - I made them because I was looking for a recipe with maple syrup because my husband's father used to make a cookie with maple syrup, and I was going to surprise my husband. But these were a little too sweet (and I LOVE sweets!) - so I don't know why people are suggesting EXTRA sugar... I don't know if the maple syrup was necessary in the recipe. I will see how my husband likes this, but I might just stick with choc. chip oatmeal cookies in the future.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2009
Fantastic! I loved it and my husband did as well. I didn't make too many changes. I cut the recipe in half (only using 1 tube of crescent rolls and half the other ingredients) because I was only cooking for me and my husband. I also used mushrooms instead of the peppers. And I used less onion because I just wanted the hint of flavor. Because the recipe was cut in half, it only had to cook for about 20 minutes. I also cooked it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper because I always manage to over-cook crescent rolls and then it sticks to the pan. I am always looking for ways to cook chicken differently, and this was fantastic! Definitely a keeper!!! Nice flavour (love the dill!) Update August 10, 2010: This is still one of my husband's favourite recipes! Whenever I make something from this website and ask him to rate it, he always compares it to this recipe... "Its good... but not as good as that broccoli braid recipe!" :)

Corn Bread Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Except for making it into muffins instead of a loaf, I made this recipe exactly as it explained, and it just didn't turn out right... There were pockets in the muffins that didn't bake at all. And there was a weird aftertaste... Maybe I did something wrong??? But I followed the directions exactly... Won't make these again.

Peanut Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Absolutely FANTASTIC! Definitely a keeper! The peanut butter chips were such a nice change from plain chocolate chips. SO moist! The only change I made was baking it for 15 minutes instead of 18-22.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
My husband liked it, but I didn't care for it. The parmesan was a little overwhelming, and it didn't seem to go very well with the fish...

Egg Salad I

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Love it! You don't need tons of mayo to make an egg salad sandwich taste good! I love dill, so I really liked this recipe.

Cheeseburger Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Found it quite bland (even after adding some garlic salt and oregano). My husband said he didn't mind it, but I didn't like it, so I won't make again.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I only made the meatballs, but they were fantastic! Full of flavour. I did add garlic though (in addition to the garlic powder - not that it really lacked something without it - I just LOVE garlic!)

Brown Rice, Broccoli, Cheese and Walnut Surprise

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I really liked this! I made it for my husband because he hates rice. Unfortunately, he didn't like this dish... but I just think he'll never like rice :) I really liked it though, so he'll have to suck it up because I'll make this one again.

Hearty Garlic Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Very good! Next time I will mash more of the potatoes leaving less chunks (by request of my husband who is a little bit of a picky eater... He LOVED the sausage in it though!). I will also put a little less pepper in it next time.

Cream Cheese and Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
I LOVE prosciutto, so I thought I would love this recipe, but it was just ok. I had a hard time keeping the chicken from falling apart, and the flavour just wasn't what I was expecting.

Stuffed and Wrapped Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Very good. I used herb and garlic cream cheese for extra flavour. And I didn't have red pepper in the house, so I didn't include that. Will make again!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Just fantastic! So moist and chocolate-y. My husband said they tasted better the second day rather than hours out of the oven.
