Basic Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This was my first experience making fresh pasta and I am surprised how easy it was.I did triple the recipe but doubled would have been enough for me and hubby. It turned out perfect. .I used my Kitchen Aid mixer to mix it ,let it set for 20 minutes rolled out in 3 pieces then refrigerated it til ready to cook.I rolled it through my Kitchen Aid attachment wihile the water was boiling.I will definately be making this again.

Slow Cooker Homemade Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This is an excellent recipe.The changes I made was to soak the beans overnight & boil them for 1hr.until they became soft.I didn't have navy beans ,just white pea beans and they were perfect.I cooked them on high for 1hr. then low setting for 1hr.

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
This is a nice easy no fail recipe.The cookies are very light a tasty.Having a kitchen Aid mixer makes this even easier as it is necessary to beat the mixture until light & fluffy.I used a pastry bag to pipe the filling & it came through nicely.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
My husband loves these cookies because they are soft & chewy like his mother use to make... The only thing I did different is I rolled them in bakers sugar & placed a walnut in the middle. This recipe is now on my favourite recipe list.An excellent ginger cookie.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I made these to-day for the first time but it will not be the last.I did make a few changes just because of personal choice.I added walnut pieces to the batter & used coarse bakers sugar for the topping instead of brown sugar.This gave the topping a very crunchy top.

Hot Cross Buns I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I just made this recipe tonight & it turned out very good.There was a spice missing to give it that true hot cross bun flavour,perhaps allspice. I used margarine & raisins instead of butter & currents. Make sure to grease the pan generously or use parchment paper.I will definately made this easy recipe again once I discover the missing spice.

Chicken Dumpling Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
My husband & I loved this soup.I did not add tarragon or parsley.I only added 1cup of chicken to the dumpling mixture but added 1tsp. baking powder & 1/2 cup of extra flour because the dough was too runny. We loved the dumplings because we like them heavy.I also sprinkled fresh chopped green onions on top.
