Brie and Walnut Tartlets

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
First off, this tasted really good. 2nd off, it was super easy to make. It was so easy, that I had read the recipe a couple days before off the internet, then made it 2 days later when my internet wasn't working. I was worried at 1st but I somehow had the recipe memorized (because it's so easy) that even without the recipe, these turned out great! I made no changes..I liked the puff pastry. I used 1 of those small brie cheeses you buy at the store, the whole circle. Anyway excellent :) I am going to make it again soon. Oh the only reason I rated it a 4 and not a 5 is that mine did not turn out looking as good as the picture lol...maybe more practice with the puff pastry.

Dad's Magic Bar Olives

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
I made these for my husband & I and we both enjoyed them...stuffing/filling the olives was a little labour intensive though! I also baked half of them (in the oven at 350 for about 10 mins) & then fried the other half in a pan. The frying was definitely better (like most things are better fried!) but actually the baking was quite good too and is definitely a good, healthy alternative. I will make these again, although I did think they were going to end up tasting a bit better than they were, but still, were good. Just a side note: They are really "olive-y"...so make sure whoever eats them like olives. I make other olive balls (with green olives) that even my friend who hates olives loves & she always asks me to make them - these would be too strong for her I think...however, I love green olives so they were good for me!

Creamy Strawberry Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
This was a pretty easy recipe to follow. I used my crepe maker to make the crepes which made it even easier! I didn't have icing sugar so I just used normal white sugar, which worked great. The crepes were tasty but REALLY rich...You can't have too many of them, but delicious!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
This was a tasty, easy recipe. My husband & I both liked it and I will definitely make it again. I used 1 tbsp soy sauce & 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, after I had read the reviews. It tasted great this way. DELICIOUS!

Parmesan Puffs

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
This recipe was SUPER easy to make! (& very fast). I used a hand held mixer/beater after I put the eggs in, just for a minute or 2, then added the parmasan cheese and then made the balls. They balls turned out to be a lot smaller than I thought they would be, but now looking at other people's photos of this recipe (on this site), I seemed to do it correctly. They were soooo good! I didn't serve it with any sauce because we ate it alongside pasta, so we could dip it in the pasta sauce, if we wanted to. Great recipe & I will for sure make it for friends!! (When I make it for my friends, I'll make it as an appetizer, served with tomato sauce or garlic buuter -yum!)

Cordon Bleu Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
1st I have to say: I am a vegetarian & don't cook meat much & of course don't know how this really tasted...that being said, my husband LOVED it & said I could definitely make it next time we have company over. I don't cook chicken all that much & when I do it's usually easy chicken wings/drum sticks, so I was worried, however this recipe was really easy. I didn't have a meat mallet so I used my rolling pin! Also, now thinking back, it might have been easier to put the breast in a ziplock bag, instead of the saran wrap as it was sliding just a little bit. Anyway the whole thing was great. I used bread crumbs instead of corn flakes and lime juice instead of lemon, both because that's all I had in the house. Good recipe! I definitely recommend it!

English Muffin Hors d'Oeuvres

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I rated this recipe 5 stars, however with a substitution: I don't put salt in it (I find with everything, it's salty enough so no salt and no garlic salt either) and instead I put a little bit of curry powder (depending on how much you like it)...but even just a little hint is delicious! & you have to put chopped black olives in the mayo mixture - sooo good! Then I just bake them in the oven normally...they also work well if you freeze them 1st. Always a hit & ppl always ask for the recipe!

Baked Cheese Olives

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I have been making this recipe for YEARS! It is super easy to make and always a huge hit, even with people who say they hate olives! If you are having a hard time wrapping the olive in the dough mixture, add just a LITTLE bit of the olive juice (from the jar)...this makes it a lot easier to wrap. That's my technique! The only problem: I never seem to make enough! They go soooo fast! Oh & I never use a food processor or anything - just mix it with a big spoon & it works everytime!

Brie en Croute

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
I rated this recipe so high because it was so incredibly easy to make, even for me! I was worried it wouldn't look good when it came out of the oven, but it did - looked nice and shiny (I'm assuming from the egg wash over it). I am not crafty so I ended up just using a cookie cutter and cut a shape out of the excess dough and putting that on the top, instead of making a bow or something - the cookie cutter way worked great and was super easy! My only thing: I think once it was out of the oven, I let it sit too long (I thought it was an hour, but might have been more) so when we cut into it, it was just light a normal round of brie...not "oozing" like it said it should...and the parsley & almonds were at the top, exactly where I had put them...not all mixed in...it was good, but maybe could have used a bit more flavour, which is why I did 4 stars and not 5...It was tasty & we ate it quickly but it felt it may have been missing something, I just don't know what...However, I am making it again in 1 week for friends & I'll just do the exact same thing & not let it sit too long.

Renaissance Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This recipe was super easy to make & everyone just loved the mushrooms! I too, had leftover filling, which was not a big deal. I just put the leftover filling in the fridge and the next day I restuffed some more mushrooms for my husband & me. We also tried dipping some tortilla chips in the leftover filling & it was DELICIOUS! I sauteed the stems with the oil mixture & then added it to the cream cheese mix & then stuffed the mushrooms. I also put bread crumbs & grated cheddar cheese on top of the mushrooms half way through cooking them so they had a delicious crusty top!! I'm definitely making this again!
