Chocolate Waffles I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
SO GOOD! Loved these! I followed the changes that the 2nd most recent reviewer posted and they turned out great. Not super crispy, but not just chewy. A good balance. The chocolate flavour was nice. Topped it off with some whipped cream and chocolate chips. This is definitely my new favourite waffle :) Thank your mom for us, Jenny!

Microwave Baked Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I think the microwave time was a bit too long, because my apple was complete mush! It was pretty good though.

Spanikopita

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
AWESOME! The only problem was that it was too salty (I think because the feta is already pretty salty) so next time I won't add much. I went on Youtube to find a good video of how to fold them because it was my first time. After a few tries I got it figured out and they turned out perfectly. Everyone loved them and I'll make them again soon!

Princess Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Such an interesting cookie! The dough was so light and fluffy. They were a tad "egg-y" for me, which isn't so much my favourite, but they were nice. I made the glaze, which was a great addition. Definitely a princess cookie :)

Scottish Oat Scones

These are really good! Easy to whip up with what I had in my kitchen. I'll probably make these again

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Me and the whole family enjoyed these. I didn't have taco sauce, so I used the extra filling and poured it over the top. Will be making it again. Edit: So much better this time! I added some corn into the mix this time, which added some nice sweetness. Left out the water to keep the sauce thick and cooked the onions with the chicken- actually it was turkey. Just put some tomato sauce and the cheese on top. Everyone loved them!

Maple Walnut Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Absolutely delish! Definitely a no brainer. I will be making this one time and time again. Changes: pecans instead of walnuts (good choice), 3/4 c oatmeal (but don't decrease the amount of flour at all, you need it!), and 1% milk instead of half and half. I found I only needed to bake them for 15min. The glaze was mildly disappointing as it didn't turn out like a thick icing in the picture. I guess I was hoping for that. Next time I'll use less water to get that consistency. Everyone loved these and gobbled them up right away.

Meaty Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
This was quite a nice spaghetti sauce, I'm not going to lie. I changed a few things though. 1. sliced beef sausage instead of the other ones listed 2. few more cloves garlic because we like it 3. no tomato paste, basil leaves, thyme, or pepper flakes 4. used "spaghetti seasoning" and an extra teaspoon sugar and zucchini 5. browned beef and sausage in a frying pan before putting in pot. 6. used corningware pot instead of kettle, but will try it in a big frying pan next time as they do better on the stove top. Not sure if I'll make it again, but it was nice :)

Zesty Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
These were a lot of fun! We followed the recipe for the most part, but replaced the rice in the filling with cous cous (a substitute in a jiffy! no one missed the rice) and used a steak "splash" because we didn't have steak sauce. Gave it a zesty taste that everyone loved. Topped with a bit of cheddar and mozza. We will definitely be making this again. I can imagine throwing all sorts of leftover meat sauces into peppers and baking it now!

Raspberry Salad Dressing I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
I changed this recipe up quite a bit because I was in a hurry to get a dressing on the salad. It turned out great though and went fabulously with the blueberries and carmelized pecans in my salad. I used raspberry yogurt instead of plain yogurt + raspberries. Since it was already sweetened I left out the sugar. I used white vinegar instead of the red wine vinegar that was suggested and a bit of aged balsamic. I know it sounds strange, but it was delicious! Mixed it up with a spoon, not the blender.

Texas Glazed Pecans

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Awesome! We did them in the frying pan instead of baking them because we needed them super quick. Turned out great and made our salad a hit! Also went very well with our baked brie :) Will definitely make again!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
Nothing phenomenal, but a great basic pancake recipe that I will be sure to use time and time again. I made mine half whole wheat and half with white flour, to make them sliiiiiightly more healthy and they worked out great!

Crunchy Pumpkin Pie Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I actually ended up changing this recipe a bit. I didn't have the proper pumpkin spice mix so I just added cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Didn't have pecans, so I used almonds. To make it more like pumpkin pie I used pumpkin puree instead of apple sauce. Found I had to bake it longer than the recipe showed, but it continued to dry after I removed it from the oven. It has excellent pumpkin flavour with the puree in there and the whole family loved it. Will definitely make this time and time again! Don't be afraid to play around with the recipe.

Raspberry Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Very summery, fresh, delicious salad! It was gone by the end of the meal and the whole family dug in. Not everyone enjoyed the vinaigrette dressing, but I thought it was nice. Used only 1 T cider vinegar, instead of the 2 called for. Wonderful with garden fresh raspberries and lettuce :)

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This was pretty good, but not sensational. The whole family gave it thumbs up though and it was super easy, so I'll definitely make it again. Few changes: used biryani mix because I didn't have curry powder. Also cooked it for only 45 min. on 350F. Used 6 chicken legs. There was way more than enough sauce. I'll probably halve the sauce next time.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
These truffles tasted really good, but were so much hassle! The truffle was very thin and difficult to work with, so I kept adding more icing sugar, which I didn't want to do, but didn't see any other option for. Even with the added icing sugar, they were still incredibly melty, especially when I began to form them into balls in my hands or dip them in chocolate. I had to form the balls, then freeze them on a cookie sheet for about half and hour, and then quickly dip them in chocolate or roll them, oftentimes having to stop to allow them to freeze again. The semi-frozen truffle meeting the melted chocolate led to truffle oozing through whatever cracks in the chocolate it could find, which was frustrating. They did taste good in the end however, and looked great when dipped in chocolate and covered with big coconut flakes. I served them as Christmas gifts in tins along with the Decadent Truffles and Oreo Truffles from this site.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
This year almost everyone on my Christmas list received little ornament shaped tins of truffles from me. I included 3 flavours, including these Decadent Truffles. They were by far the easiest to work with (solid enough to stand being dipped in melted chocolate without becoming melty themselves or needing a quick sit in the freezer), however they weren't my favourite in terms of taste. I preferred the peanut butter truffles and Oreo truffles (from this site) much more. They looked beautiful dipped in chocolate and dusted with sprinkles or big coconut flakes, or rolledi n crushed almonds, though.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I wish I could rate these 4.5 stars, because that would be more accurate. The truffles were a total "5" for taste and appearance, however were soft and difficult to work with. I ended up having to stick them in the freezer before dipping them in chocolate. Then the opposing temperatures caused the truffle to ooze out any cracks in the chocolate. Other than that, I didn't have a problem. Also, I found that I needed to use all of the oreos that the recipe called for for the truffles. Hand beating was not nearly as effective as using the countertop mixer. After all of these adjustments, the recipe is pretty much perfect and got rave reviews from the 20 or so people who received them for Christmas from me! I served them in little tins with the "Peanut Butter Truffles" and "Easy Decandent Truffles" from this site. The Oreo ones were my favourite. I decorated them by dipping in chocolate and sprinkling with a dusting of Oreo baking crumbs.
