Pressure Cooker Italian Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
I have made this a few times a few slightly different ways but it's ALWAYS yummy! I admit I've never used a pressure cooker but I have used a SLOW cooker leaving it all day to cook and it was amazing. Last night I made it on the stove in a regular pot (without the chicken) in less than 30 minutes and it was still very good. So, MAKE IT!

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Made this exactly to recipe, except added lemon rind to the crust and it turned out wonderful. Too bad it's so fattening :D

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Made this in August and froze it unbaked without trying it until last week. WOW! I got rave reviews from all involved. Unfortunately I can't remember if I changed anything in the recipe, probably not because I usually try to stick to the original the first time I make something. Anyway, it was a wonderful taste of summer in the dead of winter. Thank you!

Cranberry BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
This was okay. My kids ate it without comment as did everyone else. I didn't cover the dish while cooking and there was plenty of sauce, maybe too much. It's a great way to use up that leftover whole cranberry sauce from the holidays and that is likely the only time I might make this again. If I did make it again I would add something, not sure what yet, but something.

Land of Nod Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
they were okay. Maybe I did something wrong. They came out HUGE and half the filling fell to the bottom of the oven. They weren't gooey like I expected either. Will possibly try again with fewer rolls and melt the sugar and butter together.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
I was given a torpedo sized zuke and a half bucket of blueberries on the same day. Found this recipe with it's rave reviews and just had to try it. I did it exactly as written except I put it into two regular sized bread pans and I think I probably added more berries because I didn't actually measure them! It turned out really good! My husband and kids like it too but I suspect he'll be the one to eat the whole thing. Next time I will try it with the crumble topping and maybe some nuts in the mix and see what happens. Oh, and mine stuck to the pan evne though I buttered it liberally.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I must have done something wrong because I found the chicken dry and the sauce a bit disappointing. That said, everyone ate it without complaints.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese I

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
While this doesn't knock my socks off every time I ALWAYS get rave reviews from husband and children. I pretty much stick to the recipe but often add peas to it to get some 'green' in there. I also sometimes crumble potato chips on top or seasoned bread crumbs for a bit of crunch.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Due to time constraints I just made this exactly to recipe, except I used frozen mixed berries and cherries. It turned out quite good and I will make it again, but will sprinkle sugar on top like it's been suggested. Nice one!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
normally I hate cauliflower, it's the smell of it when cooked, it's awful! Anyway, THIS was really good and will certainly keep the vampires away with all the garlic.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Used the marinade as a sauce over pasta, a bit on the garlicky side but really YUM!

Cherry-Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
This turned out really good. I only used blueberries but it was still perfect. Next time I'll make my own pastry though. I baked it at 425 for 15 minutes then turned down to 350 for about 45 minutes. Golden and crispy!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I made this according to the recipe plus a bit of grated ginger. Everyone seemed to like it from age 1 to 40! Asked my picky husband what he rates it out of five stars, and he said a firm four. So, there you go.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This was quite good. Made it as the recipe instructed and it was too spicy for my 1 and 5 year olds, but my husband and I enjoyed it on nacho chips (no tacos in the house).

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
I made this recipe for our late christmas dinner. I didn't alter anything other than using Edam instead of swiss. The results were good, if a bit bland. I like that the dressing isn't vineagery.

Sky High Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
My oven caught on fire on Christmas Eve, need I say more? I tried this again on June 13, again, a failure. An inch high and I followed the recipe to the letter and took the advice of many reviewers. I give up!!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
very forgiving icing and worked a treat. I flavoured it with lemon extract which gave a nice offset to the sweetness of sugar cookies. Nice one!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
By now I should know that anything that says 'best ever' never is when I make it! These cookies,with a zillion rave reviews, I thought were a sure thing. They taste fine but go flat when baked, not holding their shape nicely. Now, I may have done something wrong as I halved the recipe and made them into 'stained glass cookies' with a lifesaver melted in the middle. But you can hardly see the 'window' because the cookie flattened and spread so much. Oh well, the kids won't care!!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Being a very lazy cook I just cooked the chicken right in the sauce in a pyrex dish on the stove top. It turned out really good and the whole family ate it, even the one year old. I would cut the chicken into smaller pieces so the sauce sinks in a bit more. Very good!
