Spinach Lasagna Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
Wasn't too sure about the cream cheese in this recipe (I usually use ricotta), but I actually liked it better. I doubled the cream cheese, added 2 eggs, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and some salt and pepper, and it came out perfect. Everyone loved it, and I love how neat it is to serve (not messy like regular lasagna that usually gets all mucked up when I cut into it!). Next time, I will use this method for my Chicken Alfredo and Broccoli lasagna. This was so yummy AND more cost efficient because of the cream cheese vs ricotta :)

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2015
Just made these, and they are amazing! The recipe is similar to the one I usually use, with the exception of the pudding mix. I used Butterscotch because that was what I had, and it gives the cookies a nice hint of butterscotch :) I followed another review and added salt and baking powder, and the cookies came out perfect. Overall, I'm very happy with this recipe.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2014
I never thought making vegetable soup (which is what this basically is) would be so easy! I halved the recipe, and it still made a FULL stockpot! I used the vegetables listed, and added a can of red kidney beans to add some protein. I love how low fat this is, which leaves room to add things like chicken or beans or whatever to make it a full meal. Not sure yet about the fat-burning properties, but that's just an added bonus to something so tasty! I froze the soup in single serve containers for some quick lunches/dinners for the week. I'm sure I'll be making this soup again :)

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2014
I love using cake mix to make cookies, there are so many varieties to choose from and you only need a few ingredients. I use this recipe to make ice cream sandwiches - the cookies on their own are nice and chewy, so they stay nice and soft.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2014
Made this for a Chocolate Wacky Cake as a quick dessert, and it came out perfect once I made a couple of changes: 1. I used more peanut butter than stated (around 1 1/2 cups) because it just tasted like butter cream with a hint of peanut butter, 2. I used only 1 1/2 cups of sugar, and 3. I added a tsp of vanilla (as per another reviewer) which I think brought out the flavours. I had no issues with it becoming fluffy. Next time, I'll have to try Nutella in place of peanut butter (as another reviewer suggested)! All I can say is thank God no one in my family is allergic to peanuts :)

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
This was so easy and tasty, and my whole family loved it - even my 2-yr-old, who rarely eats chicken! It's a great base recipe, and I tweaked it a bit: I baked the chicken in the oven with Taco seasoning before shredding it and adding in some of the sauce; to the soup mixture, I added about 1/2-3/4 cup of Enchilada sauce (10 Minute Enchilada Sauce from this site); and I added some chopped tomatoes and green onion before baking...It was really tasty and not too spicy. The only thing is that my tortillas still stuck to the pan even after pouring some of the sauce to the bottom :/ Other than that this recipe is a keeper :)

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
I wanted to make Chicken Enchiladas for supper, but I forgot to buy salsa (even though it was on the list) so I figured we could use an Enchilada Sauce in place of it, for that tomatoe-y element. I made this sauce, doubling it for a 9"x13" pan and cutting back on the chilli powder. It was pretty good, if not a tad bit spicy. I added a couple TB of Taco seasoning and a couple packets of chicken stock. I've never had Echilada sauce before, so I don't know what it's supposed to taste like or the consistency of it, but this sauce was pretty darn good on our Enchiladas. I used the Chicken Enchiladas V recipe from this site, and added about 3/4 cup of this sauce to the soup/sour cream mixture - YUMMY! I still had quite a bit of sauce leftover - if I put it in a jar, how long would it keep for in the fridge? Thanks for posting a great recipe!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2014
This was better than I expected! Very tasty and a nice change from the same old tacos and fajitas. I only used 1/2 the package of cream cheese and added a bit more salsa; I also marinated and baked the chicken breasts in taco seasoning, and added corn to the chicken mixture. It made 7 enchiladas, using the large tortillas. I served it with Spanish rice. Everyone loved it! Thanks for posting such a great recipe :)

Apple Hand Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2014
What a simple yet delicious apple pie filling! I used 2 JonaGold apples, and used only 4 TBS of brown sugar. Also, I removed the apples after 5 mins (I like a bit of texture in my apple pies) and reduced the leftover syrup, which I then returned to the apples. I only had Crescent Roll dough, so I made turnovers with those - I added some walnuts as well. Everybody loved them! I really appreciate how you can adjust the sweetness with this recipe so the apples come out perfect - not too tart, not too sweet. This might be my go-to apple pie recipe from now on :)

Apple Cinnamon White Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2014
Used less sugar as per another review (also used ALL brown sugar), and it came out perfect :) Wasn't sure which apples to use, so I picked up some Paula Reds and they were nice and sweet/tart, and they held up nicely in the oven. Next time, will try Honey Crisp apples. It took over an hour to fully bake. I also added some walnuts for texture and crunch. This is the perfect Fall dessert/snack that goes really well with coffee. Everyone loved it!

Stuffed Sole with Imitation Crab

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
This was sooo tasty, and with IMITATION CRAB to boot! I'm giving it 5 stars even though I did things just a tad differently: I used Basa fillets (it was all I had), omitted the mozzarella cheese (although I might try Parmesan next time), and only added some lemon zest to the mayo. I also brushed some extra sauce onto the fillets and sprinkled with breadcrumbs before baking uncovered. Very delicious served with some rice and steamed broccoli. Who knew that imitation crab could make plain old fish so yummy! I will definitely be making this again :)

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2014
This is a quick and easy, yet super yummy meal that my family loves. Like others, I brown my seasoned porkchops. Then I saute onions, garlic and mushrooms in the pan and de-glaze with the mushroom soup (2 cans + 1/2 cup of milk). Finally I return the chops to the pan and finish cooking them through. It turns out great every time. I've used the oven bake method as well, and they still come out as good. I don't know what it is about this recipe (made with canned soup no less!) that makes it so good, but it works. I usually serve it with steamed white rice :)

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
This dessert was so simple and so yummy! Instead of the whipped topping in between, I used a Mocha Almond Fudge ice cream :D Next time I'm going to try a Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. The possibilities are endless with this :)

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2014
This is the exact recipe I use (minus the food colouring and the vanilla), and it's a family favourite. The only minor thing different is that I add 2 tsp of lemon juice to the ice cream mix - not sure exactly what it does, if it's a chemical thing (to add to the texture or to keep the fruit from browning), but it works so I've never omitted it. I love this recipe because the strawberry flavour is so bright. I sometimes use frozen fruit - the last time I made this, I used frozen strawberries and bananas. My son said it tasted like a banana split :) I'm excited to try it with other fruits - they sell frozen apple slices where I shop, and I think with some cinnamon and graham cracker crumbs mixed in, it would make an awesome apple pie ice cream :D This recipe is a keeper for sure!

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
Really liked this recipe for macaroni salad. I followed a few of the other reviewers' tips: cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and used 1/2 TB less mustard. I also added some frozen mixed veggies, shredded cheddar cheese, and bacon bits - my family loved it! The following day, I added some tuna and served it over some Romaine lettuce, and it made a nice little lunch :) I could never really find a good recipe for a classic macaroni salad (without all the fancy ingredients or things I didn't have on hand), but this one is a keeper! Next, I'll try it for a potato salad :)

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: May 16, 2014
I love chickpeas and Hummmus, so I was curious about this recipe...and I love it, too! I wanted a bit of a chunky texture, so I mashed the chickpeas with a fork, leaving some whole. I used the celery, lemon juice, and mayonnaise, but subbed green onion as I don't like raw onion. This was soooo tasty and I couldn't stop "testing" it before putting it in the fridge to chill :P Never thought to use chickpeas this way, and a can of chickpeas is so much cheaper than a can of tuna - and you get more for what you pay for! Thanks for the amazing recipe! Can't wait for lunch now :D

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: May 6, 2014
Just made this sauce and it's soooo yummy! I pretty much followed the recipe as is and it turned out really good. I only had thick cream in my cupboard, so I only used about 1/4 c of that. I used 4 cloves of garlic instead of one, increased the oregano (because I LOVE oregano in Italian dishes) and blended everything together. The sauce is so much better than the jarred sauces I usually buy and it's actually cheaper as well. This will be my go-to pasta sauce from now on :) Thanks for posting such an easy but delicious recipe! *Update 05/14: Just used this for a lasagna, and it was even better! I omitted the butter this time and used 1/2 & 1/2.

Egg-Free Dairy-Free Nut-Free Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
This is the only Chocolate Cupcake I use and it turns out moist and delicious every time! You can't even tell that there is no eggs or milk in it! I love the addition of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter, it makes the cupcake even more decadent! 5 stars all the way!

Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2014
A good recipe, but I found I needed more pesto and more Parmesan cheese - otherwise the sauce was a bit bland. Other than that change, I followed the recipe as it was. My family loved it!

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
This recipe is so easy and the kids loved it! I used other reviewers' tips and used less brown sugar (1/2 c + 2 TB), used cornstarch instead of flour, and I added a touch of plum sauce, and they turned out super tasty! Next, I'll have to try it with pineapple chunks/juice. I used frozen Swedish meatballs - baked them in the oven then added them to the sauce. At first, I wasn't too sure about the sauce as it tasted more like homemade Hoisin sauce, but once the meatballs were added, it was perfect! This will become a regular staple in our house from now on. Thanks for the recipe!
