Marian's Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Delicious, easy, and tastes just like grandma used to make! All the stirring is worth it -- if you want real, old-fashioned fudge, don't use shortcuts like marshmallow fluff and condensed milk. And since this is an old-fashioned recipe, definitely use old-fashioned ingredients ... whole milk and real butter are a necessity. A 9x9 pan does make for some thin fudge here, but considering the amount of sugar, butter and whole milk in this stuff, I wouldn't want it too deep-dish -- a small piece is all it takes to give yourself a sugar rush! Still, if you like big cubes of fudge instead of small pieces, you may wish to use a smaller pan. I used about 2/3rds white sugar to 1/3rd brown, just because I didn't have enough white sugar in the house and it was 11pm. It worked out just fine despite the substitution, and I'm glad that I was able to cut some of the refined sugar out (I prefer brown for most applications).

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I have no idea how this recipe got so many positive reviews. Besides the errors in measurement (the recipe makes 12 muffins, not 6, there's far too much butter in the crumble topping, and you should NEVER EVER fill muffin cups all the way up), there's the fact that they came out heavy and largely tasteless. I even added extra spices -- some nutmeg and allspice, in addition to the cinnamon .And even though I halved the amount of butter in the topping, I still wound up with a buttery mess on the bottom of the muffin cups. Fortunately it confined itself to the pan

No Bake Cereal Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Delicious, but they don't stick together well at all! Fortunately I don't mind the tendency to fall apart, but it makes them less than ideal for traveling (a bit too messy for a packed lunch). Instead of 2 cups of peanuts I used half peanuts and half raisins. And I didn't have any candy-coated chocolates, so I just used plain old chocolate chips.

Onion Mustard Buns

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
These came out wonderfully! So soft and delicious. I didn't have dried onion on hand, so I used 2tbsp of fresh green onion and 2tbsp of yellow onion, quite finely chopped. The flavour came out rather mild, but still present enough to keep things interesting, and the onion wasn't overpowering (which is often the problem with onion buns). I'll definitely be making this recipe again!

Sour Cream Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This is exactly the same as my grandmother's recipe! I also do a variation on it where I add sliced radishes -- they add a bit of extra zing, and make it more colourful.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Worked beautifully on my sugar cookies! I added a half teaspoon of almond extract for a bit of extra flavour, and divided the batch into 4 so that I could get 4 different colours. I used a small spoon for applying the glaze in a nice, even coat, and then drizzled on additional colours after the first coat was dry (just took a few minutes).

Easiest Focaccia Recipe

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Whipped this up to serve with a bean salad. I took note of the other reviews and added a teaspoon of salt to the dough. I also sprinkled in some dried oregano, basil, parsley and sage while I was kneading. I coated the top with about twice as much olive oil as the recipe calls for, coarse-grained salt, more oregano, basil, parsley and sage, and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. It came out absolutely delicious, with compliments all around.
