Cream Cheese Mints

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
I thought these were good, but my husband didn't care for them. The cheese taste was too much.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
This worked very well. Like others, I used a prepared graham cracker crust, and I doubled the amount of cinnamon. I even used light condensed milk because my grocery store was sold out of the regular.

Alison's Gluten Free Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
It worked really well for me! Made a few substitutions (used all white rice flour, replaced millet flour with more garbanzo bean flour, used brown sugar instead of honey, used almond milk, and used two eggs instead of the egg plus egg whites). Still turned out well, and it looked really good, too! The bread is soft yet strong enough to use as a sandwich bread, and was quite tasty. Not crumbly at all. I did not use a bread machine but just mixed with a hand mixer, allowed the dough to rise for one hour in the loaf pan, and baked at 350 F for 50 minutes. Definitely a keeper.

McCormick® Gingerbread Men Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Followed the recipe fairly faithfully except only put the dough in the freezer (not fridge) to chill for about 45 min. Also added heaping measurements of the spices, but much less than double. The result was a delicious cookie on the softer side. Was told they were the best gingerbread cookies they ever had. I followed another reviewer's suggestion to roll out the dough between sheets of parchment paper. Highly recommended. I did mix everything by hand. Would have been easier with an electric mixer but it wasn't the end of the world.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
I just used this recipe for the tzatziki sauce. It tasted authentic and fabulous! I think it was the best part of my Greek-themed dinner.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
These were a hit with my hard-to-please husband! The best part was how simple they were - no eggs and few ingredients. For all you other Canadians who buy condensed milk in 300 ml cans, here's the my slightly-reduced converted recipe (I was still able to make 2 batches: 1 dozen larger macaroons + 10 smaller macaroons) 1/2 c. flour, 4 cups coconut, tiny pinch of salt, one 300-ml can sweetened condensed milk, 1.5 tsp vanilla extract.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Simply fabulous. I will never turn to pancake mix ever again, as these were so simple! I didn't use the melted butter but added a few drops (probably about 1/2 to 1 tsp.) of canola oil to the batter. As other reviewers suggested, I allowed the batter to sit for about 30 min before frying the pancakes.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Perfect small roast for Christmas dinner with the following changes: Used a 1-kg (2.2 lb) prime rib roast, all the garlic but only 50% of all other marinade ingredients, roasted 460 degrees x 7 min, then lower oven temperature to 325 x 1 hour.

Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
It was OK. My fiance found the balsamic taste a bit too strong.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Great way to use up old bananas and apples. I used 5 very ripe, small bananas and 2 old apples. Omitted the eggs without any problem. Also substituted shortening with canola oil (used 1/3 cup + 1/6 cup) and buttermilk with sour milk. To make 1/4 cup sour milk, add enough milk to 3/4 tsp of vinegar to measure 1/4 cup in total. Quite sweet, so I found it did not need toppings or frosting. Yummy!!

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
Was very good, as expected from the phenomenal reviews. I used less soy sauce, and I substituted olive oil and white wine vinegar. Otherwise I followed the marinade recipe exactly. Marinated the steaks for 2 days and cooked them in a skillet. Yum!

Skillet Ole

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Easy and tasty! Dinner was ready in no time. My only changes to this recipe were: I had more ground beef and rice than the recipe called for (and no turkey), used an entire green pepper, and made my own chili powder (equal parts garlic powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, and ground cumin). Yum! Will make again.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Yum! Only changes I made were (based on some of the most popular reviews) to mix the ketchup and brown sugar and pour as a glaze on top near the end of cooking time, add a bit of Worcestershire sauce to the glaze and the meatloaf, and add about fresh minced garlic to the meat. Will definitely use this recipe again!

Colonial Brown Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Excellent recipe. I didn't have whole wheat flour so I substituted all all-purpose flour instead. It turned out great, even though I used 1 cup sour milk (1 tbsp vinegar in a liquid measuring cup, filled to the 1-cup line with milk) for each cup of buttermilk. I even used skim milk. For one of the loaves, I replaced 2/3 cup of flour with All-Bran cereal, and added cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and ground ginger. It was nice, kind of like a fat-free bran muffin. Such a simple and easy recipe on which you can base all kinds of different quick breads! Best of all, it's virtually fat free and has no eggs. I made it for breakfast this morning because I ran out of store-bought bread and eggs, but I will definitely make this again.

Spanish Beef and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
This was flavourful, simple, and easy! I didn't have chili powder but made my own (equal parts cayenne pepper, ground cumin, oregano, and garlic powder), and I used 2 cloves minced fresh garlic instead of the 1/2 tsp garlic powder. I also used 1 tsp of the spices in cooking the beef, and added 1/2 an orange bell pepper in addition to the green pepper. The texture was a bit mushy, but that was mostly my fault (instead of long-grain I used short-grain rice, which normally requires less liquid). Next time I will reduce the amount of broth, and I will try leaving the green pepper raw and mixing it in at the end.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
Loved it! Took other reviewers' advice: I served it with plain yogurt mixed with cilantro and lemon juice, and I added a little chopped spinach along with the cilantro--I am so glad I did. Thanks for the great recipe and reviews!
