Yum-Yum Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
I don't add any sugar, as the peaches and cream corn we buy is sweet enough. We sprinkle crushed Ritz crackers on top to give it some texture. Love it!

Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I thought this would be better if the apples were cut into smaller peices, so that in every bite you will get a piece of apple and some cake. I would make this again.

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
These are super yummy. They are soooo peanut-buttery. I added Reese's Pieces because I had leftover mini packages from halloween (but no chopped peanuts). I am going to bring these to a bake sale.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2011
These were good, but not worth the effort of stuffing the filling into the muffin tins. Its easier to just make an apple crisp. I thought these would be good for a bake sale, but they take a long time to make.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
These taste really yummy. The first time I made these, I did a variety of toppings to try to find the best tasting ones: salted, unsalted, butter, no butter, etc. Best combination: Salted, no butter. I find they taste buttery all on their own, without adding any extra butter. They do go brown fast, but its not like they are burning; it's just the baking soda mixture causing them to brown a little bit faster. The ones that manage to make it throught the night end up going soggy and the salt disintegrates, but warming them in the microwave makes it all better. The method is a little bit strange. When making yeast breads, you should only add some of the flour and make a kind of paste (With this recipe, only add 2 cups to start) and mix the "paste" thoroughly for a few minutes, to start forming gluten. Then gradually add the remaining flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Turn out and knead until smooth and no longer sticky, adding flour as needed. I use this recipe to make 8 giant pretzels, baking 4 at a time and shaping the remaining dough while the first 4 are in the oven.

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
It was nothing special, but at least it was easy. Served with oven roasted potatoes, corn and salad.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
These were really good. I (almost) made them as directed; I thought we had marjoram, but it wasn't in the cupboard (I searched Google for a substitute, and they said to use oregano, which was already in the seasoning), I used 1 tsp of garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, and I did not measure out the oil. I added just enough oil to coat the potatoes I had, because the amount of oil you use will change depending on how many potatoes you cut up. We always line the pan with non-stick aluminium foil for an easy clean-up and fewer potatoes stuck to the pan. Here in Canada, they used to sell "Shake n' Bake" for potatoes (they still sell it for chicken) until about 5 years ago; ever since, we have been looking for a substitute. This is the closest we have come to recreating our old favourite! We found there to be too much of a spicy after taste with the red pepper, so we might reduce that next time, but overall a wonderful recipe. Making it at home is better than a mix anyhow, because you can control the salt content, and there are no preservatives. With a few tweaks here and there, we should be able to recreate our favourite potatoes :)

Warm and Spicy Autumn Punch

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Tasted way too much like pineapple, and not enough like apple. The honey was kind of strong as well, so sweetening it with sugar might have been better. I was going to make this for an event, so it was a good thing I made a test batch, because there is no way I am going to serve this to other people. Simmering it for 5 minutes with the cinnamon stick was not long enough; you could barely taste the cinnamon. I did not use the oranges or cloves, so that might have made it taste different. My brother liked it, and he said it tasted like "liquid apple pie," but I did not care for it at all.
