Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
My hubs and I both really enjoyed this bread. One thing I need to remember to do next time is to adjust the sugar according to the sweetness of the banana and how much banana I have. I didn't have sweet bananas so my bread was not sweet at all - which my husband actually loved more than me. I added a cup full of chopped walnuts to the mix right at the end. I would add choc chips next time. One last thing - may be it's my oven, but I would bake it a little less than 60 min as mine were slightly over-baked...only slightly. Would definitely bake this again though. :)

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
Awesome! Cut up potatoes, celery, and carrots and put'em at the bottom instead of foil balls. Seasoned chicken with steak seasoning actually and then added freshly diced rosemary, garlic powder, and onion powder. Left the chicken pieces (drumsticks, thighs) in the fridge in a plastic bag for a couple of hours. Then cooked it on high for about 5.5 hours. I turned the chicken and vegetables halfway so it cooks evenly. For the vegetables I salted and peppered it before cooking. I liked the the chicken on top of the veggies so the chicken fat fell to the bottom of the pot and seasoned the veggies even more. Man... this is def the best way to cook chicken. :) The meat was superbly tender. Yay!

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
Def a keeper recipe. I think it would be great exactly the way it is but I kinda made it on the spur of the moment so I just went with what I had. I used... -chicken seasoning instead of italian cuz that's what i had -I used a little bit (1/2 C) of almond milk cuz that's the only kind of milk I had -added an egg cuz I wanted to -added garlic salt only -added chili powder but not the chili sauce I baked it for about 15 min on its own and then added some tomato sauce (the ones that come in a jar) and baked for another 7 min. It was delicious. I added the sauce cuz I didn't feel like waiting. I think it would be perfect if the meatball was baked separately and the sauce cooked separately and then may be simmer with the meatballs to serve. Thanks for the recipe.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
These were light, delicate and quite delicious. But I knocked off one star because they were slightly drier than I would have wanted. But if you like the light and delicate type of cookie, I'd recommend it to you.

Honey Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
These were not bad. An interesting combination of flavours. The sourness of yogurt and honey came through the strongest. It was sweet and sour; soft and were like miniature cakes. I personally would leave out the honey next time and may be add a 1/4 of a sugar more to make up for it. I didn't add the glaze as I thought the cookies themselves were sweet enough. Thanks for the recipe!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
I made them today and they were very delicious! I've been wanting to make rice pudding for a long time and am so glad I've found this recipe. They are so simple to make. I used my rice cooker to make the rice and it was fine. (29 June) I tried using skimmed milk to make it - was not as tasty - as expected. It's still okay to eat so this may be an option if you're trying to cut down on some calories.
