Nanaimo Bars I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2013
Followed the advice of other reviewers, and used almonds and slightly less bread crumbs. I got compliments on them from a men's league. That, and the ease of the recipe, makes it a five star recipe.

Perfect Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
Perfect is correct! Recipe didn't need any fiddling, they turned out wonderful first try. I like mine a little more toasted, so I may make them smaller next time, but they were still wonderful tasting.

Scottish Shortbread IV

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I only had one cup wheat flour, and two cups white in the house. I had to just pat it out, as it ended up too soft to roll. I mixed with a dough hook in my mixer instead of kneading it. They turned out very nice. They did get soft after a while of sitting out, but I'm not sure if that was because of the flour... they were wonderful right after cooling.

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
For whole wheat, they were pretty good. Obviously not as light as regular muffins; my family said they were good, but wanted my 'other ones' next time. Great if you're on a diet though.

Garlic Aioli

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2012
I wanted to make this for crab cakes, but my hubby accidently got me shrimp. So, I used this instead of cocktail sauce, and it was delicious!

Sugar 'n' Spice Nuts

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Very good, addictive like the cone of nuts you get at boat/gun shows.

Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Awesome, everyone loved them as recipe is written. I found mini bella 'shrooms, and they worked wonderful since they have flat tops, and they tasted good.

Uglies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Very easy, my kids absolutely love them. The sauce makes a difference, make sure you use one you like. The dough loses something when you reheat left-overs, but the insides are still very good.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
The kids like it with regular tomatoes, not hot ones. It makes it a little blander, but that can be adjusted a little with the taco sauce. This is a staple in my house: there are five of us, and this makes quite a bit.

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Time consuming, but really good. I had no problem with them floating up, and followed the recipe as written.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Most of my family doesn't like sesame, but if you do this is a great recipe. The left-overs even taste good rewarmed.

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I have a family of 5, so I doubled the recipe. I also used soy sauce instead of salt, which made it opaque, but still tasted good.

Seafood Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
My kids and I really liked the flavor. The problem with it being runny was that it's made in a pan, but the consistency was typical for a pot pie. I think next time I will divide the pastry into ramekins to solve that issue. Good for those that like seafood, why would you even attempt it if you don't like a 'fishy' taste? I didn't want to cover the flavor, it was really good as written.

Easy Asian Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
This wasn't bad, but we didn't exactly like it. It may have been the cheese; it just didn't taste that Asian to us, which was what we were looking forward to. That being said, it wasn't that bad, and would be worth a try.

Spinach-Cheese Swirls

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
I added just a little salt and pepper to the spinach after draining it, and that helped bring out the flavor of the spinach a little. I only used enough to lightly cover the pastry, otherwise it's hard to roll. The cheese is not supposed to be overpowering, but compliment the spinach, so I like the Muenster. Relatively quick, very easy recipe, everyone really liked them. Also, I had a can of biscuits and some left-over filling, put the biscuits in the bottom and sides of a muffin tin, filled with filling, and everyone really loved them. Good breakfast idea.

Sea Foam III

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2010
This is not sea foam, and this is why I rated it 1 star. It is divinity. It is ok as a divinity recipe, BUT if you are looking for SEA FOAM, look at a different one.

Eyes of Ox (Ojos de Buey)

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
We had an exchange student one year, a long time ago who made these. We were so surprised at how good they were, and it's so simple you have to try them. Yumm!

Flan de Coco (Coconut Flan)

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
The only reason I didn't give it 5 starts is I'm not sure what a flan should taste like! However, I really enjoyed this recipe. Something I learned from other flan recipes is to turn finished flan onto serving plate; I had no idea you were supposed to do that as this recipe assumes you know. Very tasty though.
