Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I don't understand why these fries don't have a five star rating--they're delicious, AND healthy! My mother and I made these for Thanksgiving dinner (we're Canadian--that's October for us) and loved them. Hint: if you don't like spicy foods, leave out the cayenne pepper.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Delicious! I couldn't find ranch cream cheese or even a package of ranch dressing mix, so had to use plain and I still loved it! Thank you for giving me a new favourite meal! As a side note, for the crust I just used a pizza crust recipe already on allrecipes to be healthier and save money.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Delicious! But I found a few more ways to cut some of the calories off. First, I didn't use any oil (I just put the onion in the water/chicken broth mixture) and since I had no canned tomatoes on hand, simply used two small chopped ones. I still found it delicious, and have made it two times more since.

Homemade Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
Delicious! I was concerned at first, but it turned out lovely. Here's some hints I found useful: if using dried instead of fresh basil, use only four teaspoons. I also found that I didn't need the 1/4 cup water, and added used two tablespoons whole wheat flour rather than one all purpose. Also, you can just use a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, and if you want to save some calories, only use one teaspoon margarine rather than a tablespoon butter, and omit the oil. It will still taste great.

Almond Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
It was lovely! I was upset to find that I didn't have any almonds on me, so substituted 1/2 teaspoon almost extract, and my boyfriend still raved and asks me to make it again. Thanks!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Definitely a very delicious bread. I took MommyFromSeattle's advice. I halved the oil with skim milk, which makes it healthier. Thanks for the advice!

Summer Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
It's a little vinegary for my taste, but still delicious. I will definitely make this again, and maybe just cut back on the vinegar a bit. I do have a tip though: your life will be MUCH easier if you add all the dressing ingredients into a food processor or blender. Trust me, it's a massive time saver.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
It's delicious, but honestly, both my mother and I found it to be too sweet. I think I'm going to cut the sugar back by a cup next time I make it. I used frozen strawberries, and blended them in a food processor to smooth them out. It worked quite well.

Cornell Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
WAY too vinegary for my taste buds. It wasn't horrible, but all I could taste was the vinegar. Not my favourite.

Banana Smoothie I

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
Delicious! And I omitted the egg! There's something very ice-creamy about this smoothie to me. The reason for the egg omission was only because the idea of drinking a raw egg just turns my stomach the wrong way, but even without it, I loved this recipe! Will definitely be making this again.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
While I personally am not a fan of oatmeal cookies, my family loved these! As a note, if you don't have the shortening, you can just use another 1/2 cup of butter - you'll be fine. I also omitted the raisins, as I didn't have any on hand, but I heard no complaints. Yum!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
My boyfriend and mother LOVED this recipe (and that's a high compliment from the boyfriend, who usually hated meatloaf). Also, this recipe reheats great in the microwave, so there is no wasting leftovers.

Rich Pasta for the Poor Kitchen

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I'll put it this way: my mother thought that it tasted a little fishy, but said it was "ok", while my boyfriend polished off his entire serving and then some. I'm averaging their ratings. For the record, my boyfriend has no idea how my mother thought it tasted "fishy". I think this recipe is a matter of taste, so I recommend that you know your crowd.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
The most awesome thing about this recipe is the fact that it's customizable. I didn't have honey or wheat germ on hand, so I substituted molasses and flax seed. It was still delicious! I will definitely be making these again.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Ginger cookies are not my thing - I'll be honest. I'd rate this recipe 3 stars, but since my family loves it and would rate it 5, I thought I'd compromise on 4. I think if you like ginger, you'll like these.

David's Yellow Cake

It's a good, basic cake recipe. Is it spectacular? Not for me, but it was decent.

Apple Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
The inside of mine didn't cook (though I think that's just my wacky oven), but what did cook was delicious, and that's coming from someone who doesn't even like her grandmother's apple bread (sorry Grandma!).

Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
AWESOME! I'm never using another crust recipe again. This one is perfect just the way it is. Here's a tip: it's easier to stir if you melt the butter in the microwave first. Five stars!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Heads up: how good this recipe is does strongly depend on your personal taste. I followed it exactly and found it to be a little tart, but I like tart, so I wouldn't change it. My boyfriend on the other hand likes his sweeter, so he would tone it down. Bottom line: if you like it just a little tart, keep it the way it is. If you don't, increase the sugar or cut back the lemons.

Sunday's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Let me tell you something: I made this pie for my boyfriend's family, and his father said that it was better than his mother's (my boyfriend's grandmother's) pie. That's all that needs to be said for how great this pie is.
