Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Utterly perfect. Crispy, light, simple flavour. I am gluten intolerant, so this was made with rice flour and gluten free home made bread crumbs. There is a reason this recipe has a great rating. Try it out, and spice it up if like different flavours.

Tangy Apple Chicken Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
Fantastic, ty so much for posting this excellent recipe. Tastes like chicken with sweet and savory stuffing, all in a moist and easy to cook meal. Prep was a snap, if you're good on the chopping :-) 20 minutes later I was patting it into shape and letting it rest in the fridge for dinner later that day. Paired it with plain old perfect mashed potatoes and corn. Solid 5 starts, enjoy everyone!

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I try to never do this, but I had less than a tablespoon of cocoa powder so I had to make an adjustment. I followed another reviewers suggestion of all chocolate squares, so 8 in total. Ok, I lied, I also didn't have foil, so no water bath either..sheesh eh? I did use the the scant amount of cocoa i had to 'flour' the pan :-) What I would like to say is this versatile and exceptional recipe, still turned out, rich, smooth and amazing served warm. I would do the hard chocolate glaze for company, just to pretty it up a touch, but casual and just for two, go ahead...eat it from the pan lol. Big thanks to the original poster, this is a 'top shelf' recipe if ever there was one.

Oven Pot Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
This was fantastic. We just had it for dinner last night. Fussy husband loved it. Very versatile, subbed celery soup for mushroom. Also didn't have any onion soup mix, so I just cooked up some onions in the drippings from searing the roast. Et Voila!

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
All i can say is..WOW! We are from Belleville Ontario, where there is a great donair shop, in true East Coast style called Nova Deli. They got us addicted from our teens on, and when we moved to the Greater Toronto Area, we thought there would be a somewhere to get a good donair...We were wrong :-( Everytime we go back to our hometown we buy some of the meat and the sauce, BUT NO MORE!! lol. Ty, My husband loved it and actually ate a whole one before i had finished warming up more meat.(he had seconds:-) Topped with shredded cheese, tomatoes and onions. I just got a new KitchenAid food processor, so I actually mixed the meat and spices in it, baked it as directed, then chilled it before i sliced it. The sauce.../sighs with joy, was just amazing. Follow the directions, you will have a great dinner. Make extra and freeze, Donair pizza rocks btw.

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Wow, that's a keeper! Have made it twice now, first time as written, second time had to substitute the jalapeno with cayenne pepper (grocery store has poor selection). Very versatile, since it still tasted fantastic. Thank you for submitting this one. A batch is marinating as we speak :-)

Watermelon Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
Ok, so I goofed when i made it the first time and didn't add the 3 cups of water, and I added the 1/2 of water and sugar to the blender, I did not make a simple syrup. These were not adjustments lol, just me running back and forth from the computer to the kitchen to do the recipe. I would like to say, its very foolproof, even with those two goof-ups, this is an excellent recipe. I had come in from way too much gardening and sat down with a big pitcher of this mix, and then napped tehehe. Thanks for a fantastic recipe, I will make sure to actually follow the directions properly next time.

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
These were, what I can only describe as a very pleasant surprise. Chewy, but not overly, just enough natural sweetness from the banana and dates. I made up a batch for an upcoming kayaking/hiking trip and I already 'tested' them on my husband, lol. (I put three chocolate chips per cookie on the tops of the ones for him). They passed that test and seem to be storing very well. ***Mixed in some natural un-sweetened coconut into half of the next batch I made(for me) and white chocolate chips on the other half, right on the top again(for him). We ate the first batch before the trip this week, lol. Thanks to the poster, and to those making them, have fun changing up whats inside them, I may try some pumpkin puree next in place of the bananas :-)

Roasted Potato Salad with Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Nice flavour, I used fresh dill since I had a HUGE bunch of it in the fridge :-) I didn't serve it totally chilled though, it was still a bit warm when I added the dressing. Wow, those potatoes were like flavour sponges for the dressing, lol. I think serving it warm, reminded me slightly of German potato salad. I would make again, with possibly trying different veggies, or accents in the dressing. Great base, ty for posting. ****Also, for people new to posting reviews, details are appreciated and very helpful to the rest of us who feed(pun intended) our foodie addictions here daily :-)

Donair

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
This was a nice recipe. I followed other posters suggestions and the sauce was sweet, tangy and thick. Plus the addition of the oregano was spectacular :-)

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Thank you OKBEE! Excellent dessert. Made it exactly as directed. I have noticed people adding this, or taking that away which is fine for everyone's individual tastes, but what an excellent dessert all on its own. Cheers and thanks again. (Especially from my husband :-)

Pizza Moons

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
You had great timing!! I had the dough in the fridge from being on sale last week and a small troop of men coming over after a hockey game, lol. Big hit, very simple, straight forward and tasty shortcut for a fun snack. I think kids would enjoy making these with an adult, which is a great way to sneak in family time too. I served with some garlic mayo and pizza sauce for dipping. Thanks again!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was an excellent recipe, I made it as written first. The only thing I changed the second time was purely a personal thing. I like things a touch spicy so 1 tsp cayenne pepper got tossed in. I also felt that the sugar was tasty but a little much, again for my personal taste, so I cut it down to a single tablespoon. It was a wonderful recipe and with two minor changes its now perfect for me. I can see this being an incredible hit with kids as is. Its an excellent replacement for a sodium laden can of Manwich, that you can do in literally the same amount of time.

The Perfect Basic Burger

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
I guess some people didn't read the whole title :-) This was exactly as described. If you wanted the 'perfect sweet burger, or smoke burger, or your personal tastes burger' Then you really should have been tipped off when you read the ingredients that this was as stated 'Basic'. Add what you want, but don't complain that something was exactly what it said it was. Now for the review /rant off. This was tasty, I had my butcher freshly grind the beef for me. The flavour was uncomplicated and worked great for all the guests we had. I set out a variety of traditional and more exotic burger toppings (wasabi mayo alongside ketchup lol). I for one, really prefer to add individual flavour this way instead of in the meat where people can have wildly differing tastes and likes/dislikes and you can't change it after its cooked. Thank you for the post, its in my recipe box :-)

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Excellent. Have made them twice, first time as written second time the only change was an addition of 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract. They come out so easily from the tray and the aroma is incredible. Either way you make them, fresh from the oven, they will disappear quickly. Big thanks to the original poster of this tasty foolproof recipe.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Excellent sauce recipe!! Made it first time yesterday as originally posted, then again today for a function but, and my face is red for this one. I ran out of Mayo, d'oh. Thankfully topping up the mayonnaise required with whole plain yogurt worked. As a slightly healthier/you ran out of mayo alternative :-) Wonderful, and thank you for posting the recipe.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Exactly what the title describes. I changed nothing at all, and enjoyed a wonderful comforting cheesy dish. You can certainly jazz this up more, but with good potatoes and a tasty cheese of your choice, this is sure to make you go 'mmmmmmmmmmm' all the way down to your toes. Thank you to the poster, its a lovely recipe.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
W-O-W! My husband and I just made these and they are fantastic. We did not have any issues at all with them spreading too thin. They cooked in 19 minutes @325 and were made with a medium ice-cream scoop, so the shapes were uniform. ***I find this important to mention, we did NOT refrigerate the dough at all (and yes, we used melted butter, Gaylea). My husband and I mixed everything in a Kitchen Aid Mixer, except the chocolate chips, which we did with a wooden spoon as suggested. If we could give this more than 5 Stars, we would! Fantastic keeper of a recipe, thank you for posting this, no changes of any kind were needed when we made these spectacular cookies, just work slowly, enjoy the process and you will be rewarded, with decadent chewy crispy cookies.
