Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
Excellent soup! The squash took one hour to bake. I used vegetable broth and coconut milk instead of the half and half. I think the coconut flavour suited the ginger and curry flavours very well! I received requests to make this one again!

Cinnamon-Topped Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I didn't have fresh rhubarb (it's January in Canada), so I used frozen. I didn't thaw it first, and the texture and shape of the muffins were excellent! I'm sure they'd be even better with fresh rhubarb. I didn't have buttermilk so I thinned out sour cream with a bit of milk, and I used 1/3 c applesauce and 1/3 cup vegetable oil. Delectable!

Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Excellent recipe! I didn't have poppy seeds so I used chia seeds, giving it a bit of a nutritional boost. They thicken it a bit too, so if you don't want it too creamy, add a bit more vinegar. The flavours are even better the next day.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Easy and excellent! I used only 1/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup yogurt (6% M.F.) and they were moist and delicious. I made 24 mini muffins (baked for 13 minutes) and 6 regular muffins.

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
The cupcakes are divine! A lovely, light texture. I didn't try this frosting though; I used the Wilton Lemon Buttercream frosting, which has just the perfect amount of lemon. I halved the cupcake recipe, and the Wilton frosting made the perfect amount to pipe onto 15 cupcakes.

Excellent and so simple! The flavour was wonderful, and my family enjoyed it. No changes necessary!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Excellent muffins! As many before me have suggested, the addition of vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon to the batter and more cinnamon to the crumb topping make these superb. I also use canola oil instead of the butter. Delish!

Hearty Multigrain Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
The best bread I've found for both the breadmaker and to bake in the oven! Like other reviewers, I double the loaf, add extra seeds, and substitute the brown sugar for honey and molasses. Makes a delicious loaf, just the right texture! In my breadmaker, I use a 1.0 lb setting for a single batch, and a 2.0 for a double. The light crust setting works best.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
The first time I made this, I followed another reviewer's suggestion to bake them. I found them too dry. This time, I made smaller patties (about 18) and pan fried them in olive oil until brown on both sides, and then baked at 400 for 3 mins. They were moist and delicious without being oily! I also made the cucumber sauce a few hours ahead and the flavours married perfectly. A keeper!

Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
This was great! I found the veggie mixture a little bland, so added 1 tbsp chili powder and 1 tsp ground cumin. I covered half of the tortillas with filling, topped with cheese and cilantro, then folded them in half and broiled them for a few minutes per side, without olive oil. I served them with sour cream, guacamole and salsa. They received rave reviews from adults and kids alike! An easy, tasty, satisfying and nutritious vegetarian weeknight meal. Thanks for a keeper!

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
Excellent sauce! As recommended by others, I make it at least a day ahead to allow flavors to marry. I also recommend freshly squeezed orange juice - it improves the flavor even more. You can use any combination of berries; I usually use frozen with success.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I've made this for 2 different Christmas parties and both times it received RAVE reviews! I left out the nuts and instead sprinkled finely chopped candy canes on top. Excellent! Leave it out of the fridge for a couple of hours before serving to achieve the perfect texture.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
Very good recipe! I used about 1/3 cup sliced kalamata olives and used halved grape tomatoes. It was delicious, but needed something on the side - I was still pretty hungry afterwards. It was a fun sensory experience for my 1-year-old daughter, too! Thank you!
