Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
I've made this recipe TWICE now - that's how good it is! The first time, I used an 8x8 glass dish and used all 4 eggs - it came out more like a CAKE. The second time, I used only 2 eggs and the suggested 9x13 glass dish - and it came out PERFECT :) The secret is in how many eggs/flour you use that makes the difference. For the second batch, I added walnuts and marshmallows for Rocky Road-style brownies and it was a hit :) This will be my go-to brownie recipe now!

Italian Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
Love this pasta salad! It's so easy and I had everything in my pantry already :) I used elbow macaroni (what I had), 1 cup of frozen peas (for some green), shredded a carrot, and an orange pepper that I had leftover. I also added some Parmesan (as per one reviewer) and some bacon bits. It was scrumptious!!! I usually buy a pasta salad dry mix, but I think I'll just use Italian dressing from now on - I use the Golden Italian type as it's not as oily as the Zesty Italian. PS. I also use Golden Italian dressing for my Brown Rice Salads as well. Instead of pasta, use cooked brown rice :P

Cream of Celery Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Had a craving for Celery soup today and I came across this recipe. I pretty much followed the recipe as is, but I added some extra corn at the end for some texture. It came out super tasty :) DH even suggested the addition of potatoes next time, which I'll have to try! This turned out to be more of a "Vegetable Chowder", and I'll be making it again soon :)

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
This chicken smelled HEAVENLY as it roasted! I followed the the recipe as is, only adding an additional TB of garlic powder and some black pepper to the rub. Other than that, it's a spot-on recipe :) I never thought to use butter when roasting chicken before, but I will now!

Magnificent Cheesy Brown Rice

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
An easy and tasty recipe :) I usually add some broccoli to mine and everyone loves it - especially my 4 yr old who LOVES broccoli! Next time, will try mushrooms and the bell peppers :) This also makes a great stuffing for boneless skinless chicken breasts ^_^

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I don't know why I've been BUYING Spanish Rice this whole time, but it will end now that I've tried this recipe :P It's so simple yet so flavourful, it's ridiculous! The only thing I did differently was using brown rice and adding some butter at the end - not sure why, but this is how I've always made store bought rice so I figured it couldn't hurt. Will be making this for Taco Nights instead of buying from now on ^_^

Chocolate Macaroons I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
This is the first Macaroon recipe I've ever tried and I was very pleased with the results. Since I had SWEETENED coconut, I used only 1/4 c of sugar as per a previous review, and I used only 1 c of semisweet chocolate chips. The macaroons baked up "tall", not flat which is what I was worried about esp after seeing the consistency in the mixing bowl. These macaroons came out perfect :) For half the batch, I sprinkled the tops with extra coconut before baking, which gave it that "finished" look. Next time, I will try omitting the chocolate altogether so the coconut flavour can really shine - hmm, maybe I use coconut extract instead of vanilla. We'll see :P

A-Maize-ing Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Great easy recipe for corn chowder. Made a few adjustments: I used chicken stock instead of water, used 2 cans of corn instead of just one and omitted the bacon to cut down on the salt content (but WILL try it next time WITH bacon). Overall, a good recipe :) And it's great for the budget, too!

Chocolate Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This cake looks super yummy and I LOVE chocolate and coconut together ;) But is it the SWEETENED or UNSWEETENED coconut that you use? With the amount of sugar used for the filling, I'm assuming it's the UNSWEETENED variety...Will try this soon :) Rated 5 purely on the fact that it looks easy and delicious!

Strawberry-Pineapple Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
What a great base recipe for smoothies! I used frozen fruit instead of adding the ice, added about 3 TB of sugar instead of 2, and omitted the juice altogether (I like my smoothies thick and I found that it didn't really detract from the overall taste). Can't wait for summer - lounging out in the sun with my smoothie ^_^

Cheesy Bacon Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
What a great alternative to the sweet muffins I usually make! I sort of cut corners and used some leftover All-Purpose Muffin mix I had left :S They turned out a bit on the sweet side (despite the garlic and onion powders I used), plus I used a Maple bacon...Next time, I will definitely use this recipe :) PS Technically, I SHOULDN'T be rating this recipe as I used a short cut muffin mix, but I'm rating based on the general IDEA of it ^_^

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Loved this soup. I used butter instead of the bacon fat, and used only 6 good sized potatoes but it was still plenty :) I never thought these cream soups would be so easy to make with just ingredients already in my pantry. Next time, will try adding some shredded cheddar during the cooking process for some extra "oomph". Wonderful light supper with some bread YUMMY!

Golden State Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
OMG This is the BEST Mushroom Soup I've ever tasted! I've always loved the cream of mushroom soups you get in the grocery store, but was always leery of trying to make it myself. I never knew it could be THIS easy :) I followed the recipe as is, just adding some minced garlic, garlic powder, and omitting the salt (since the chicken broth already had enough in it). All I had on hand was chicken stock mix and I figured out that 14.5 oz is 1.8 cups, and it worked fine - I just added more as I saw fit. But WOW, what a hearty and delicious soup :) Will be making this regularly! *UPDATE: Made this soup AGAIN the next day, but used a whole bag of frozen brocolli florets and doubled the milk and chicken broth :) Just as yummy! Next, will try making a potato version...

Broccoli-Stuffed Sole

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
I always loved the Stuffed Sole that Red Lobster sold and have been searching for a recipe that is similar to it, and I think I've found a good substitute with this recipe :)I followed the recipe "as is", using some of the tips that other reviewers gave: added some breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese to the rice mixture, as well as sprinkled it over top of the fish before baking. I used Basa fish fillets as it was all I had on hand - but I guess ANY white fish would do. I used only 3 fish fillets, so I had extra stuffing, but I just threw it in the dish with the fish as an extra side dish (the rice alone was very yummy!). Thanks for posting this recipe. I will next try the stuffing with chicken :)

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
An awesome and yummy alternative to regular pizza :) I've made chicken pizzas before, but never thought of mixing the bbq sauce with the pizza sauce - I always just used a small amount of bbq sauce - and I think I'll mix the 2 sauces from now on. I also season and then steam boneless skinless chicken breast in the oven, rather than cook it in oil. Other than that, this recipe is perfect. I took another poster's advice and added cooked crumbled bacon to the pizza and WOW ^_^ Will be making this as an alternative to regular pizza from now on :)

Blueberry Muffins I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
This was my first time making blueberry muffins from scratch :) I took other reviewers' advice and doubled the amount of sugar. I also left in the lemon zest, which I think added some brightness to the flavour. I also used a whole pint of blueberries. Overall, a simple and flavourful recipe which I will use again and again :)

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
Very tasty! I usually buy Shepherd's Pie seasoning from the grocery store, but I don't think I'll have to anymore now that I've found this recipe :) It's a very simple straightforward recipe using ingredients that I already had on hand. I never (NEVER) used ketchup for my Shepherd's Pie before, but it actually gave the meat some sweetness and tanginess that I quite liked. I used ground pork (rarely use ground beef except for hamburgers) and a bit of Worcestershire sauce, as suggested by some. I think this'll be my staple recipe for those nights when we want some good old comfort food :) Thanks for saving me some money every week ^_^

Mushroom Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
I've been looking for an easy Rice Pilaf recipe for the longest time, and I've finally found it! This rice was soooo tasty and soooooooo easy to make :) I used the measurements that came with Uncle Ben's Converted Rice, but other than that, I made the recipe pretty much "as is". Will be making this again...and again and again and again :D

Simply Sensational Truffles

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Love how easy this decadent treat is to make! I made these using a different recipe from a magazine, which didn't include the chocolate coating...The next time I make these, I will definitely try this recipe!
