Banana Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This is fantastic! The texture was perfect (I made mini loaves and baked for 28 minutes), and this tastes good as well as tasting healthy. I do agree with some of the other comments about using more bananas though. 1 1/2 cups does not seem to provide enough banana taste to this bread.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
A lot of people have mentioned the garlic flavour wasn't coming through when they made this. Try pureeing the garlic and olive oil together, so that the garlic coats the chicken completely. I pureed my garlic and olive oil together and added a splash of lemon juice - garlic flavour came through perfectly!

Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
This was fantastic! I couldn't believe how much flavour came out of such basic ingredients. I added a splash of balsamic vinegar to the chicken stock before adding it to the skillet, and it added a nice tangy flavour to the dish. I agree with previous reviewers about making more of the sauce mixture though -- I only used 4 chicken breasts (small skillet!), and the amount of sauce was perfect.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Tastes so good, I cant believe how easy this was to make! I didn't have corn syrup, so I used honey instead and this worked well for me. A helpful tip: rather than drizzle the caramel over the popcorn, I made the caramel in a giant pot and dumped the popcorn into that pot instead and coated the popcorn in there. That way the caramel is still warm and manages to coat all the popcorn easily. I was able to coat twice the amount of popcorn with the same amount of caramel syrup this way.

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
This recipe is terrific! I've made these several times now, and have never had any issues, though I've noticed that some other people have had some trouble! Here are some helpful suggestions: 1. If you used Splenda or reduced the amount of sugar, the texture will absolutely be dry/hard. The sugar needs to melt to contribute to the moistness of these brownies. 2. If your brownies were grainy, your oven temperature might be off. Most are! Try baking these again at 325 instead. 3. If your brownies tasted too much like cocoa powder, it could be because there were chunks of cocoa powder in your mix. Cocoa powder tends to clump. Sift it and combine all dry ingredients together before adding the wet ingredients. 4. If these weren't cakey enough for you... its because this isn't a "cakey" brownie recipe! There are no leavening ingredients to give you a "fluffy" texture. You're going to get a dense, chewy brownie because that is what this recipe was designed to give you. Great recipe, and if followed properly will give you some great brownies. Thanks for sharing!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
The best recipe I've used so far! I was starting to think maybe my bread machine was the problem, as most other recipes I've tried have risen to much or ended up being dry and grainy. This was perfect. I'm not a fan of white flour so I used 2 cups multigrain flour and 1 cup white and it turned out perfectly. Also dropped the yeast to 2 tsp to accomodate for a higher altitude. I think next time I will try honey instead of sugar and maybe add some milk powder. This recipe is a keeper though.
