Okanagan Peach Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
I loved it, my husband had seconds but no thirds, and my 5 year old daughter wouldn't have more than 2 bites. Used canned peaches and followed the recipe exactly. Didn't strain the soup, I kind of liked the texture. I think a few chunks of peaches mixed in would have made it even better. Delicious flavor and I'm not a big curry fan. Didn't think it was too sweet, just the right amount of heat. Loved it hot not cold. Will make again!

Sticky Monkey Brains

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I would give this 100 stars if I could. Used 1 big roll of homestyle bisquits and let my 5 year old use the pizza cutter to cut them. Followed the tip from others and used a ziploc bag to shakes the pieces with the sugar. Used four ramakin type dishes from Ikea. Made 50% more brown sugar butter mixture based on other reviews. The whole family couldn't get enough. Not the healthiest recipe, so next time I'll try a little less butter and see if I even miss it. So Easy!! I can't believe they were bisquits. Tasted better than cinn-a-bon!

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
Delicious. 5 stars for a recipe to do with kids. The toffee part is delicious. Made two pans one was great the other one got a little dark on the bottoms. Not sure what happened. *TIP* Use a pizza cutter to cut a wide strip and then break with your hands for pieces. They look great. Used Reynolds release and they slid right off. Topped with chopped toasted almonds.

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Delicious! Used almonds and (half a big) red onion as someone else posted. The cayenne was just the right amount of heat. Tripled the ground ginger as I love ginger! Cut down on the butter just to make it healthier. My husband raved about it. Next time I think I will add even more carrots. Thanks for sharing! We used it as a main dish, but it's a really interesting side. Will definitely make again for company!

Scott's Buffalo Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
This was great! I left out the butter and added garlic powder, a squirt of ketchup, the honey and hot sauce as in the recipe. It was tangy but had the right amount of heat. Used for buffalo chicken wraps. Next time I'll skip the ketchup all together. My husband thought it was too much flavor, but I think he just had too much sauce on his wrap.

Mexican Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
Made sauce in blender - one can of diced tomatoes with chilis, one onion (quartered), couple spoonfuls of jalapenos (jarred), added to saucepan with oil. Left skin on potatoes, used food processor with the shredding blade, added couple of spoonfuls of jalapenos (jarred) too. Used eggbeaters, and chinese hot sauce (about a tablespoon). The sauce was amazing.. I would put this on everything! Not the healthiest but really tasty way to use up some of my potatoes!

Daddy's Whisker Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
Delicious! It was like au gratin potatoes in a bowl. My husband would have liked ham (maybe wild rice too). Next time we'll add a meat. I halved the recipe but used the whole 16 oz of cheese. Saved one cup of the potato water to use instead of 1 cup of milk. Followed others and used 2 tbsp salt and 1 tbsp pepper in the water with a whole onion. (added a dash of poultry seasoning too). Added the dill at the very end and could have used a little more. My 5 year old loved it too. Great!

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
YUMMY! Rivals any store bought/restaurant rotisserie Chicken. Added poultry seasoning, garlic, and seasoning salt to the mix. Also used olive oil instead of butter. Took 1.5 hours at 300 degrees. Tied wings and drumsticks together, and then the drumsticks to the body. Family loved the crispy skin. I had brined the chicken for something else and then decided to grill with the nice weather. Don't know what the 4 hours of brining did, but the end result was fabulous!

Creamy Edamame Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
I used fresh ginger and basil, and blue cheese instead of goat cheese. Didn't have white wine, so I used cooking sherry, and it was delicious. I would like to try it with gargonzola next time. I was nervous about it being to liquidy so I added a little bit at a time. Ended up using 3.75 cups and should have gone all the way to 4. Once I added the cheese it got a little too dry. Almost forgot the salt and pepper so the first few bites weren't great. After adding them it great! Kids too!

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Best to use cantaloupe that was in the fridge. I had to add ice cubes to chill it quickly. Used Pine-Orange-Banana juice and it was great. I wish it was a little thicker... Maybe less blending next time or throw in a banana to thicken it. Suprisingly delicious!

Minute® Rice Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Surprisingly good. I was skeptical. I added more rice like others mentioned. Used cottage cheese and a little dab of sour cream. Only had fat free mozzarella but worked well. I also used ground chicken and egg beaters to make a little more healthy. Filled to the top of my 8x8 pan. Hubby and kids ate both gave 5 stars!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Only made one loaf using the bread machine to mix and rise the dough. Kneaded and rolled out, added brown sugar, cinnamon, and plump raisins. Rolled and let rise, baked for 28 minutes, but center wasn't done, put it back in for another 10 mins. covered with foil. Delicious! Next time more cinnamon and add frosting

Maple Praline Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Yum! Great for a dinner party as a conversation starter. Better to lay the bacon on parchment paper and then drizzle the mix over it, then add chopped/toasted pecans quickly... Didn't feel that there was enough to dip it in, could double the drizzle if you wanted extra. Delicious!

Triple Layer Banana Cream Pie Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Made this with my 5 year old so it was a great activity together. Made it in a pie pan instead and added a little more margarine to hold the crust together. Skipped the nuts and made the first layer an 8oz package of fat free cream cheese with 1/2 c powdered sugar (mixed together) then I chopped my bananas for the next layer (mixed with a bit of lemon juice to not turn brown, then sugar free fat free banana pudding, then the pudding/lite cool whip combo, then light cool whip by itself. Hubby said it's the best banana cream pie he's ever had! Will definitely make again, next time might try the cream cheese and then cheesecake pudding?!

Rainbow Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2009
Wonderful dish to bring to Christmas Dinner. My 5 year old loved helping me with the colors and mixing. A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon! We made two at a time and everyone liked the milky ones better! Next I will make in a jello mold as it was hard to get to the bottom of the trifle dish.

Prosciutto and Parmesan Pinwheels

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
Had to use shredded cheese but it fell to the bottom, slices would be better. Didn't have the right dough so I used crescent roll sheet from pillsbury. Turned out great. Used honey mustard and honey ham and it was great!
