Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
These beans are the very best! They taste exactly like grandma's beans that take 2 days to make!!! I left out the bacon because I don't like the smokey flavour. These only took 1 hour to make! I used 2 cans of navy beans and I poured them straight into the caserole dish with the onions. I added the water and the sauce and they were done in no time!!!

Alan's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This recipe is very similar to the one I've been using! I use 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup of lard/shortening for every 2 cups of flour. If I am using the crusts for a pie, I add a tablespoon of sugar to the flour mixture as well to make it a little tastier! I find that the butter makes the crust very tasty and tender while the lard makes it very flaky - the best of both worlds! Note: Remember to always start with really cold ingredients when making crust, when heated, the lard will pop to make little flaky pockets of buttery flavor! In addition, brush the top of the pie crust with an egg white before baking so that it looks glazed and golden when it comes out of the oven!

I am editing my review since it is now about 6 months later and I have just thrown out the jars I made... totally stiff! Less gelatin next time...

Macaroni And Cheese I

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
This is a great recipe! I added 3 fresh tomatos diced and extra cheese as some people suggested. I loved the crusty topping and the warm mushy insides! Everyone went for seconds!

Grilled Cheese, Pickle and Vidalia Onion Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
This is the grown up version of grilled cheese! I love it :) This has given me so many ideas - sundried tomatoes, black olives and mozarella? I will be experimenting!

Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I was very skeptical before trying this recipe, but it was fantastic! I used a glass pie plate and served each slice with a drop of light sour cream on top! In the future I will try variations such as a layer of black beans or top it with sliced black olives... YUM!!!!

Grandma's Gingerbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
I love gingerbread, but these are kind of not to my liking... They make the house smell nice though which is why they get 1 star.

Key Lime Cookies II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
The lime flavour is so refreshing! These cookies are better for adults - kids will not like these. I used bran cereal crushed up and it worked fine. I also added some cinamon and nutmeg for some spice! The lime made them taste like candy cookies!

Meat Pie (Tourtiere)

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
This meat pie was pretty good. Note that you should let the pie cool for 15 min to settle, otherwise it will crumble when you cut it into slices.

Russian Green Bean and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
This was a great weeknight meal. I added any leftover veggies I had in the fridge! A carrot and a bit of celery. I didn't have saurkraut or dill, but it was great without it! Add the sour cream and flour seperatly! And add more water/broth.

Lime Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
3 out of 5 people loved these so I am giving them a 3 star. I added some cinamon and nutmeg to spice them up a bit and I added half a banana to increase their moisture. Like others I increased the milk and oil and they were perfectly moist!

Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I love this crust! I have used this crust for both sweet and savory pies and it works for both. However, I like to replace the salt with sugar for sweet pies.

Blueberry Upside-Down Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I made this cake today for my dad and grandfather (father's day!!) and they both really enjoyed it! I made a few changes - vanilla extract and no almonds and I used a bundt cake pan. I also mushed the blueberrys a little to get them just a little runny and sugary... Mmmm perfect with a cold glass of milk! The other reviews are right when they mention that this cake is done in 45-50 minutes. I only wish that the cake wasn't so dense and low looking... maybe next time I will try more baking soda? Any other suggestions?

Canadian Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
I followed this recipe word for word and the filling is perfect! However, the pastry was too crumbly for tarts. The crust tasted so good, but it was diffucult to handle. Next time I would substitue some butter for shortening. The butter will help to keep the pastry together and less crumbly.
