Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
I made these for our school drama production "At The Circus Big Top". They were a huge hit. I made the muffins a couple of hours ahead of time and kept them warm in my crock pot. In order to serve them to order like real mini donuts, I transferred the warm muffins to a large bowl, drizzled with butter and then tossed them in the cinnamon and sugar just like real mini donuts. I put them in paper lunch bags, so it was just like the real thing. The kids loved them, and this was so much safer then deep frying. I made 216 donuts and sold out! ( our school is only 24 kids!)

Mexican Blackened Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
This was so delicious! I didn't have fresh corn so I used about 1.5 cups frozen. I didn't have the cheese either so I used a mix of marble and Parmesan. I was also serving to kids so I left out the cayenne and let everyone sprinkle on their own amount at the table. We had this with a simple BBQ pork tenderloin, rice and simple green salad. This is one of those keeper recipes that's so versatile. You could add beef or pork to it and serve it with tacos or wraps, serve it cold as a salad, overall just a great recipe!

BBQ Pork Salad with Summer Fruits and Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Delicious! I used a pork tenderloin rather then chops and reduced the amount of oil and mayo just a little. I served this "de-constructed" with the dressing on the side so the kids can pick and choose what they like and keep everything separate, with dressing to dip stuff in or be drizzled. Big hit with all of us!

Slow Cooker Marmalade Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
In the end I really liked this. I say it that way because when I got home and lifted the lid on my crock pot the first thing I thought was oohhh this is way to sweet and I thought I have to cut back on that flavor somehow. I started off with the original recipe with the addition of the coconut milk right away (I wasn't going to be home 1 hour befor supper)I had also cut the cayenne way down to begin with so I added about 1/8 of a tsp. more at a time. I think I ended up with about 3/4 of a tsp. in total. The heat of the cayenne helps with the sweet of the jam I think. The other things I used to cut back on the sweet flavor were chopped onions and a tsp. or so of toasted cumin seeds. I know other had used garlic, but I didn't want to stray too far from the original recipe. It does lack color if you serve it with white rice, so I will serve it with a green veg. of some sort and a cucumber yogurt dip of some sort to cool the pallet. In the end I'm left with a sweet spicy dish that reminds me of India which I'm happy with and will make again. It took a bit, but I'm happy with the result.

Red Pepper Soup with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
I'm only giving this recipe 3 stars because it was just OK for me, and if you need something ASAP this works. I found that the flavor was just too one dimensional for me. I don't know what I would do to change it? Use fresh herbs for sure as a start. There are better red pepper soups on this site. This isn't something I would make again unless I was in a real pinch.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I just wanted to add to the reviews that I have made this recipe into granola to serve with vanilla yogurt as well. I just bake as directed and stir after the 20 min, then bake and stir in 5 min intervals till it all looks golden. After baking a spread it all out on tin foil and break up into small pieces and let it cool. This is a great recipe!

Asparagus Sesame Rolls

Reviewed: May 10, 2007
These were ok. I found them to be too cheesy, so much that it over powered the flavour of the asparagus. I think you could get away with only half the cream cheese.

Curry Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
This is so delicious! The flavours are very exotic, tangy sweet and spicy all in one bite! I used mango chutney, roatsed my almonds before rolling, and added a pinch of salt to recipe. Note: I wouldn't say you have to love curry to enjoy this cheese ball, however I would say you have to have an appreciation for ethnic flavours, so if you or your guests don't enjoy going out of their comfort zone then I wouldn't recomend this cheese ball.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
I loved this recipe, although I served it to a "meat and potaotes" crowd and it was a huge flop, so watch out for that. This recipe is SO versatile! Great on it's own or I would serve with Hummus, or Spiciy Garlic Lime Chicken (found on this site)

Springtime Ham and Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2005
This recipe was ok. We found it lacked crunch so I added some slivered almonds. My kids didn't like it, and my husband put his in a wrap and ate it that way. I probably won't make it again unless I need to change things up a lot.

Pork Apple Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2005
UPDATE: I have to add this in, this is such a versatile recipe! I recently put all the burger ingredients together and fried it like ground beef, put the mixture in the fridge and later mixed it into a bagged salad mix and added drained pineapple tiddbits, boxed crutons and a creamy honey mustard dressing...AMAZING! Delicious! It's -40 outside, far to cold to BBQ, so I made these and broiled them in the oven instead. I also didn't have 2 lbs of pork so I halfed the recipe and made little mini type patties. I did find them a little to wet so I added some bread crumbs. I served them with a dipping sauce made with a mayonaise base, crushed pineapple, honey, lemon juice and a little seasoning salt. They were so tasty and so different from the norm. I can't wait till summer so we can try them BBQ'd as well!

Honey Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2002
Great Muffins! always a hit with my family. Heres a tip: I found that if I use a good brand of bran (kellogs or the like) it absorbs much better then the cheaper no name brand. After a long time of refrideration the no name brand will still be quite "sloshy", rather then absorbing moisture while in the fridge it seemed to absorb during the baking time. Not a big deal just a matter of personal preference I guess.

Orange Cream Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2001
This recipe has lots of reviews already but thought I would add mine anyway. Drian all the fruit well, save the juice and use it to coat the sliced bannanas so they don't go brown or mushy(drain after coating). It definetly needs color. Green grapes are a good addition. Strawberries in summer, unpealed red apple and maraschino cherries in winter, use fresh mint leaves to garnish. Could probably get away with using half the suggested requirements for the dressing, but still use all the fruit. Make the dressing first and let it set really well, before mixing it with the fruit. Overall this is a really tasty salad, but the recipe needs quite a bit of personal adjustments this is why I give it only 4 stars.

Biscotti Toscani

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2001
Delicious biscotti, although I had a really hard time cutting the loaves to get 42 biscotti, I probably only got about half that. I also added about 1Tbsp. of orange zest and 1/2 tsp. orange extract to the batter, and drizzled white chocolate over top, this gave them great flavor. They are a little tricky to make, but overall I liked them much more then the store bought biscotti.

Quick Country Cupboard Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2001
An easy soup to make with great flavor. Perfect for a cold winter night. I used elbow pasta instead of seashells, and added 1/2 cup frozen corn, it worked out well. This soup would probably freeze well too.

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2001
Great recipe, I threw in some curry powder maybe 1/2-1 tsp. to give it a little extra zip. Served it with pitas.
