Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This recipe was great... so easy! My husband's favorite version of this recipe (and likely mine as well) started with a maraschino cherry in the middle, coated with almond flavoured truffle mix, then coated in melted milk chocolate... YUM!

Kids' Octopus Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
I just use packaged chicken noodle soup and put the sliced hotdogs in. The kids are crazy about it.

Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
The whole family loves these crepes. For a meal, I fill the crepes with two slices lunch meat and cheesy scrambled eggs. For one dessert, I fill the crepes with nutella and bananas. For another dessert option, I spread some nutella down the center, then a mixture of cream cheese, whipping cream and vanilla spread over the nutella and then chopped up strawberries and bananas. Yummy! Thanks for the recipe.

Mama Bear's Porridge

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Great taste and consistency. I beat the eggs and mixed them in while the burner was still on to make sure they were cooked. I also used brown sugar instead of honey. Delicious! Tasted very much like rice pudding.

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Excellent! These are now my favorite pancakes. My husband and toddlers also love them. We like to add a cup of chocolate chips to the batter. I also like them with chopped walnuts, but neither my husband or kids do. These are such a hearty pancake, I don't need to make anything to go along with them. One recipe of these by themselves feeds my family. Thanks for the wonderful, delicious recipe. Oh yeah, the blender works great for grinding the oatmeal!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
WOW! I made these muffins with a few additions. I tripled the recipe (for a large family function) and used 4 cups of berries; an even mixture of blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries. Once the batter was all mixed, I filled the muffin cups 1/3 full and put a dip in the middle which I filled with a teaspoon of cranberry cherry pie filling. Then, I put another 1/3 over the pie filling making sure to seal the filling in the batter. I only doubled the crumb topping and still found it to be too much. Next time I'll only make one recipe of the topping. These muffins are absolutely scrumptious!!! If you've ever tried Tim Horton's fruit explosion muffins (my all-time favorite muffin) these are very comparable. MMMM, incredible! Next time I think I'll try a similar version with apples, apricots, blueberries, and blueberry pie filling. I didn't have to adjust temperature or bake time, they turned out perfect. Making sure the filling is sealed in the batter is very important, otherwise the muffins will sink into the filling (only one of the muffins did this thankfully).

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
These were a big hit with the whole family! My toddlers couldn't get enough. I repeated the milk and breading steps. Next time, I'll omit the flour when I bread them the second time. I found that the flour left a dry powdery finish. They were still really tasty despite that. The first batch I baked (350 for 30 minutes) I breaded the second time just with crushed seasoned crackers. I will definitely do this again; they were crisp and delicious. One tip, when breading them the second time, don't toss them all back in the wet mixture. The breading just got all clumpy and made them difficult to bread a second time. Next time, I'll do them each separately for the second breading, dipping them one by one and rolling them one by one in the seasoned cracker crumbs. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Marshmallow and Lime Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Okay, I must admit, when I read the recipe it sounded a lot like some concoction I would have come up with as a kid... those ones you dare your friends to eat. Well, I read the reviews and decided to give it a try. What a wonderful surprise. The appearance isn't much to rave about but the taste is nice and light and sweet. My preference now is to omit the nuts. I found the texture of the mousse like mix and the nuts just didn't quite go together.

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2014
My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. Used jasmine rice, medium cheddar, and omitted the paprika 'cause we didn't have any. Must say that none of the kids liked it though.

Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
Wow!! These are unbelievably delicious. I've made them a few times now and have learned one very important thing. Marinate them overnight. The first time I made them the flavor was good but very weak. I made them again and marinated the chicken overnight, then skewered and barbecued them the next day. My parents, my husband and I as well as our two toddlers couldn't get enough. Thank you for the wonderful and incredibly simple recipe.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

I only wish there were some veggies in this to round out the dish a little better. I'm not complaining though; absolutely delicious!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Fantastic for molding characters on birthday cakes and cupcakes. It's a really easy playdough like dough to use and color and play with that the kids can actually take a bite of. It is sickeningly sweet and thus wouldn't recommend letting them eat very much.

Black Forest Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
I had both my family and my husband's family over on Christmas day and had everyone bring a sweet treat to set on the table for dessert. There were lots of delicious treats, but this one disappeared first. They were so tasty and very easy to make. I will definitely be making these again, they may even become a Christmas tradition. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

Cappuccino Cooler

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
My husband and I love iced coffee and are willing to spend a bit for it when we go out. This surpasses what we've tried so far. Whipping cream and chocolate shavings on top are a must.

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
Everyone loved it on Christmas day. I was hoping to take some home for the next day, but there wasn't a crumb left. It will definitely become the Christmas brunch tradition. I love that it is so full of veggies and very moist. Thanks for the delicious recipe!
