Jen's Microwave Doggie Donuts

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
You can't find anything easier than this recipe, however I didn't want to microwave these. I actually made 2 different batches, one with whole wheat flour & chicken broth & the other with spelt flour & beef broth. I used 3-4 T of oats & probably & kneaded more flour in until stickiness gone. Roll out to no more than 1/4" on floured surface (lots of flour!). Then, I cut strips about 1/3" x 3" & twisted each end in opposite directions so it looks like a twisted skinny breadstick. I also used a 4" round cutter, then with a pastry cutter devided each round into 6 pie shaped pieces. Looks like little nacho chips! I baked these at 300 for 30 minutes for the chips & 45 minutes for the twists. Quinn, my lab-retriever mix loved them, but then again, she'll eat anything that isn't a rock.

McCormick® White Chocolate Kissed Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
This is a nice light cookie. Light on taste, for those who don't want a strong gingerbread & light on consistency. I added a pinch more of each spice that was called for, & once I rolled the individual balls, I used a juice glass to press them down a bit, then lightly dabbed each side in a saucer of granulated sugar. Altho I have a sweet tooth, I don't like a real sweet cookie, so I nixed the chocolate kiss & instead crushed up a candy cane (cinnamon one, but any kind would do) & pressed a few teeny pieces into the top for a bit of colour;

Cassie's Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
I like a fudgy brownie, but thought I'd try this recipe. It is a cake texture, but very moist, so it's a keeper. I whisked the eggs until frothy, used melted butter instead of vegetable oil & probably an extra 1/2 cup of zucchini (peeled) so maybe that made a difference, s it wasn't dry. Not too sweet, but I like it that way. Add chocolate icing if you want more chocolate.

Blueberry Walnut Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
This is a nice tasting bread & easy to make. I ended up cutting it in half & placing into an oven ready pan & baking at 375F oven for about 10 minutes to finish cooking it as the top & down the centre didn't cook. The texture is nice. I added shelled sunflower seeds instead of walnuts. I'll make it again but maybe just mix longer & bake in the oven.

Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Nope, did not turn out for me either. I'm wondering if it could be the type of cheese used, or even milk. I always use skim milk, but mayb whole or 2% would be better.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
What a marvelous little recipe! I've never made these before & wasn't sure what to expect. To me they are a round, snowy brownie. After cooling, I dropped the individual spoonfuls of dough directly onto a saucer of icing sugar. Then I dusted my palms with icing sugar when I rolled them to keep from sticking & heating up in my hands. Worked perfectly! Off to a cookie exchange tomorrow, happily taking my Crinkles. Thanks Ingrid.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
I'm glad I read some reviews before I made these brownies, otherwise when it came to the dry batter I would have thought I'd gone wrong somewhere. I only had 1/4 cup cocoa left, & both my neighbours were completely out of cocoa (the nerve!) so I tossed probably 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the mix. The brownies turned out delish! I don't like anything too sweet & was scant on the white sugar, more like 11/4 cups, but the ch chips would have made up for it. Next time, with all cocoa I'll adjust the sugar to a bit less. Good though & nice texture. This recipe is a keeper.

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I usually hate getting out the rolling pin, but I wanted to make bone shape dog cookies for a craft show. This recipe is SO easy & actually fun to make, the dough is just right to work with too. The 1st batch is still in the oven & Quinn, my lab/retriever mix pup is waiting to be taste tester. I know she'll give this 5 stars; then again she eats anything that fits into her mouth!

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
I've never worked with eggplant so I asked my local produce manager how to handle & prepare it. Afterwards I read this recipe over again before I started & was then completely confused & hesitant to make it! Not any mention of salting & rinsing the eggplant! So I blindly followed the recipe & it was delish! I divided the pasta sauce in half & added Italian seasoned diced tomatoes for more texture. Also mixed Ricotta & cottage cheese & added spinach. Made this to take to a family event & had NO idea what it would taste like, so I put my faith in my lovely niece Laura (no stranger to vegetarian dishes) to be honest with me. Thumbs up all the way, so I will make it again!

Very Best Blueberry Cobbler!

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I used 4 cups of fresh blueberries & 1/2 cup sugar on them. Overall the taste was good, but the blueberry base was too dry for my liking. I guess more sugar would have made a syrup, but didnt want it too sweet. I'll add vanilla yogurt to my portion & it should be delish!

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
I went with VOODOOMISS's suggestion & made this recipe with 1/3 c. sugar, 1/3 c water, then 2/3 c. pb. After I stirred to blend, I just used a whisk to fluff it up. Turned out exactly how i wanted it to.

Can't Tell They're Low-fat Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Good thing this recipe is low fat because 10 hours later, all that's left is a pan for me to wash! I added an extra 1/2 T of cocoa & substituted whole wheat flour for A/P & melted butter for vegetable oil. The result were chewy, extra moist brownines with less guilt. I've already saved it o my recipe box!

Manicotti Italian Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Everyone enjoyed this dish; It wasn't the usual (ho hum) pasta casserole. I think it was the Italian sausage that gave it a heartier flavour. I'm about to make it again & this time I'll add spinach to it. It's one of those wonderful recipes that it never has to be the same thing twice!

Canadian Maple Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
My husband is on a low cholesterol diet, so no potatoes but whole grain rice is permitted, so a bonus that he can have it for dessert too. It was nice to find this recipe that didn't call for custard (no eggs!). I cut the sugar in half & used low fat milk, & we still enjoyed it.
