Apple Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
This bread was good but not outstanding. I did add a little more cinnamon, also 3 tablespoons of oil (and it was still a little on the heady side) plus 1/2 cup of dried cherries. I think it was just too dense, I did think the oil would help, if I was to use this recipe again I would try it with half oil and half butter

Morning Terrace Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
I totally loved these pizzas ~ Thank you Johnsonville. I did make a few changes. I hollowed out like suggested and then coated with a think layer of tomato an basil sauce, I used small heirloom tomatoes in place of the roma. I didn't add the egg, but even so these were delicious and a great recipe.

Potato and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
This is such an easy recipe to make, and even tastes great the next day. I used Ore Ida Tator Tot and microwaved them for 5 minutes rather than cooking in the oven, to save a little time. I did add plenty of pepper but other than that followed the recipe exact. It was a kit with my kids, sure I will make this again.

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
Wow, this is now a new family favorite... gorgeous soup, so easy to make. I did double the amount of chicken broth and also used 2 cups of heavy cream in place of the half-and-half. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
What a fantastic and easy recipe. My family loved this and I know I will make this often. It was so quick and simple to make, the only difference I made was to use pre-cooked bacon. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Grands!® Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
I love this recipe and have made it so many times now. Rather than make one large bread, I use individual flat wax paper cups from sur La Tablle and bake for around 20 mins. So much more easier to eat and they always get rave reviews

Chocolate Filled Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly, made no changes what so ever. I found these muffins to be incredibly bland as written. Not enough chocolate taste (I guess adding chips may improve that) and I just found the texture to be dry. The coconut center was the only part with any taste. I really won't be making these muffins again.

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Good recipe, followed it as written. I do think it was lacking a little something, maybe it needed more sage...

English Quiche Lorraine

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I know this says its an English style quiche, while the inside ingredients are traditional of an English Quiche Lorraine, I have never eaten one with puff pastry. The usual pastry is a shortcrust or whats know as pie cust here. That being said this is delicious, the only thing I did find was that the mixture was not enough to fill my pan ~ so I did have to use 1 cup of milk and 4 eggs. I did think that the oven was also too hot and in future I will cook this at 350 degrees for the full duration. Ths is a great basic recipe and can be modified to use any ingredients you have too hand. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Oh my goodness, for biscuits that start in a box, these really are so good. I followed the recipe exactly, other than adding 1/4 tsp of old bay seasoning. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Great recipe ~ I pretty much followed exactly, although I did use hot curry powder. Next time, I will add extra fresh lime juice. Love the colours of this salad ~ would make a great picnic side. Thank you for sharing

Smoky Sausage Penne

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I think the main thing to remember here, is these starter sauces are not inteneded to make gourmet meals but to help busy people prepare and make a family dinner in a short period of time and with very little fuss. I could see the sauce was on the watery side so while the pasta was cooking I simmered the sauce and tomatoes with some black pepper to thicken it a little and It really did seem to make a difference. I also added grated parmesan. This turned out ok, nothing I would rush to make again but an edible family meal!

Apricot and White Chip Cookies with Almonds

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
Followed the recipe as written. I did make the dough into balls and froze them on a baking tray, once frozen I store in a ziplock bag until needed. I find this helps stopping all cookies from being flat, but also a good way to control portions.

Best Ever Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
I think the important thing to remember is that is not going to be the best corn muffin ever ~ but it is the best corn muffin using BAKING BISCUIT MIX ~ I modified according to what other reviewer's suggested and this recipe tasted pretty good: decrease sugar to 5 tbsp, decrease vanilla to 1/2 tsp, decrease bisquick to 1 1/4 cup and increase cornmeal to 1/2 cup. Just the right amount of corn taste.

Drunk Monkey Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
What a great Banana muffin recipe, with just the right twist. I did make a few changes. used 4 good size bananas. Also added banana extract in place of the vanilla and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. I found it better to beat the sugar and butter together before adding the butter. Great taste and texture. Thank you for sharing.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Ive made this recipe a couple of times now. The first time I made as the recipe (other than replacing teh vegetabe oil for EVOL). The second time I thought it needed a few changes ~ I added a little Feta cheese and a finely chopped onion. I also thought there was way too much dressing the first time, so the second time around I halved the dressing and found it was so much better. Great salad ~ thank you for sharing.

Beef, Mushroom and Guinness® Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
This recipe is just fantastic, the perfect traditional Steak and Ale Pie. I pretty much followed the recipe as written. I did triple all ingredients to make 2 x 9.5" Deep Pies. I also added 1/2 cup of frozen pies to the vegetables. I cooked for the amount of time stated which produced a nice thick stew. I always brushed the top of the pastry with milk rather than the egg the recipe called for. This recipe really is a keeper for me.

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
I love this recipe but I did change it a little, I added 1 cup of cranberries (pre-soaked in orange juice) 1/2 cup of Macademia nuts and 1 teaspoon of Orange baking emulsion. I always freeze individual cookie dough balls (This always helps with stopping them going flat and also saves eating a whole batch at a time). Roll the dough into balls and place on a cookie tray in the freeer. Once frozen store in a zip lock bag until required. To cook simply place frozen dough balls on a baking tray and bake at 350 degrees for approz 25 mins. Perfect cookies everytime.
