Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
Deeeelicious! I've given this bread to family and friends and it's always gotten rave reviews. It's my go-to when I want an easy bread and don't have any yeast on hand.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
Yum! I made these to go into that chocolate chip cookie/cupcake recipe where you put cookie dough into the middle of a cupcake before baking, and I wanted to make sure I wasn't risking anything with raw eggs. This recipe is perfect! Good balance with the cupcake-y goodness.

German Puff Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I was surprised in a very good way by these! I've neither made nor had baked pancakes before so I didn't know what to expect, and these definitely have me impressed. I halved the recipe for my boyfriend and I and made it in a smaller pan, so they may have been thicker than usual, but I liked them that way. Reminded me of French toast, but chewier. We both decided that these would taste great done in little yorkie pans (or muffin pans) to make them individual and then stuff them with bacon or sausage. As it was this morning, we topped ours with honey, peanut butter, and bananas (not all at once though). I also sprinkled cinnamon sugar on the whole thing as soon as it came out of the oven, and that turned out to be a great addition. Looking forward to experimenting with this recipe!

Sugar-Free Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2010
I used real brown sugar and real maple syrup as well as some maple extract for this recipe. The cookies came out very much like pancakes. Very plain, very fluffy pancakes. I was going to give it two stars, but it does give the kitchen a nice maple-ish smell. I could see these being a fun breakfast, maybe with fruit and maple syrup on top.

Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
Yum yum YUM!! My roommates and I have officially decided that these are the best study snack out there! I did make a few alterations, hence the 4 stars, but really these things are over-the-top stellar. I had some dried chickpeas that I bought at a bulk store and I wanted to try them out. I soaked them for 24 hours, then cooked them about an hour on the stove until they were soft. I let them cool a bit and then spooned a single layer onto a baking sheet and dry roasted them at 350 degrees for 40 minutes EXACTLY. They came out crunchy and delicious! I poured on about half a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, added a few shakes of garlic powder and a bit of salt to taste and they were good to go! Thank you for this recipe!! No more snacking on chips for us!

Irish Soda Bread V

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
Holy YUM!! This bread is so incredibly delicious - I've been thinking about it all day! I've neither had nor made this before, but it's my mum's favourite so I whipped it up last night. So easy and so GOOD! I didn't have buttermilk so I made some using milk and vinegar (1 tbsp/cup milk - let sit 10 min.) and it's still getting rave reviews. I got 2 round loaves, and the shapes came out a little different because I scored the top of one with an X and left the other one alone. The X loaf came out rounder while the untouched loaf rose upwards a little more. It kind of looks like a muffin. Aesthetically, I liked the X loaf better, but they taste equaly great. Thanks for the recipe!!

Tortillas I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
I've never made tortillas before and decided to try this recipe because it seemed pretty simple. I don't know what I was expecting but it definitely wasn't what I got!! Still definitely delicious, and I know I didn't follow the recipe to a T (I only had margerine as shortening, and I cut the recipe down to 12 - I only got 6 small ones!) but when I tore off pieces of the first tortilla straight off the stove, it was so scrumptious I couldn't believe it! Soft, steamy middle, crisp outside... yum. :) My only word of advice is WATCH YOUR BUBBLES! They will burn very quickly but leave the rest of the side pretty uncooked after you turn them over. My advice: press them down while you're frying them.

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I halved this recipe and used mini cake pans instead of a full bread pan. Following the directions exactly, the cakes only took about 25 minutes to bake! Just something to keep in mind for others who are also doing the mini cake thing. :) Great recipe!

Canadian Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Great cookies! But I'd like to share a bit of advice for those beginners among us: there's no time specified for cooking time, just until the cookies 'turn brown'. I'm glad I made a full batch of dough because my first try came out very flat and very crispy! So the second round I started watching the cookies at 4 minutes (which was pretty cool, I could see the dough bubble up then collapse in on itself. Yes, I am a nerd), and by 5 or 6 minutes I could tell they were done! Especially since they have to sit 5 minutes on the hot pan afterwards. But they turn out great this way! I'd recommend watching carefully the first couple of batches to see what amount of time works best for your oven, but for me it was 6 minutes, tops. Delicious cookies!!

Tiny Shortbread Tarts

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
Pretty good, but MAKE SURE you use butter and not margerine... it tastes much better with butter!

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
This is not good at all!! Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it's hard to do a slow cooker the wrong way. I peeled and thinly sliced 5 apples and put them in at 10 this morning - it's now 11:30pm and they're still not done!! I've put in some lemon juice to speed up the 'mushing' process... I'm hoping it works so I can go to bed :P Sorry... maybe I'm just a noob, the recipe really does sound delicious but I think I'll try it on the stove top next time.

Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This was so good!! This was my first time making AND eating rice pudding, and I think I'm addicted now. I think I made a rookie mistake though: at the hour mark my pudding was still SO soupy, so I thought it wasn't done and left it in for another 20 minutes, but by that point it wasn't too moist anymore. I saw someone said that you have to let it set after baking, so I'll be sure to do that next time. Also, I found that the raisins were delicious but almost too sweet! I think I'd be happy without the raisins and just using lots of spices, like cinnamon. Thank you for the great recipe!!

Pita Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
We used to make these at the summer camp I worked at a couple of years ago! The kids loved them. We would roast them over a campfire during out trips using 'Y-sticks'. The ingredients were a little different, no oil, just cheese, pepperoni, sauce, green peppers, etc. I have to say, the fire really gave a great smokey flavour. These would be great on any camping trip, at the cottage fire pit, or even in your own backyard!

Egg-Free Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Fabulous!!! These cookies are so delicious, thick and moist and very chewy. I've gotten nothing but glowing compliments about these ones. I happened to have bought dried cranberries the day I made these, so I subbed them in for the walnuts and they taste so good, they add a nice little tang. You can also use all brown sugar instead of white and brown, that would keep it a little healthier (not that they really need to be!) I will definitely be making these again for my lunches and just regular snacking!

Poor Man's Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Dill picle and peanut butter!!! I haven't even tried this recipe, but I fully understand that amazingness that is the PB and pickle sandwich, and these other ingredients sound like they would only make it better. I'm so glad someone else out there loves these sammies!

Royal Icing III

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This was my first time trying out different piping techniques with icing, and I was actually really disappointed. It was really runny, and the patterns I tried to make just glooped together and it just looked likes lumps of goo. :P BUT that being said, it would be great to just do a general icing of sugar cookies or something, and it tasted so good, so I would use this maybe as a 'base coat'.

Molasses Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
DO NOT USE PAPER MUFFIN CUPS WHEN BAKING THESE!!! I just made 22 muffins wrapped in cups and they're almost impossible to remove!! Other than that, the muffins themselves taste pretty good. A little bland - add honey or sugar for sure if you aren't into less intense flavours. Or use a sweet jam when eating.

Sour Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Fabulous! This icing was so delicious, I'm surprised it even made it to the cupcakes - it was getting eaten in the process! And it's so nice that it's lower in calories, definitely a plus. Thank you!!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I used this to make toppers on cupcakes for my friend's bachelorette party and they were a huge hit! They taste fantastic and you can dye it any colour you want, plus it keeps really well in the fridge. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because it's SO sticky when you're making it! I probably lost a lot of it to spoons, my hands and my counter top. Is there any way to keep it from being so sticky? This was my first fondant, so maybe I was doing something wrong - less marshmallow, maybe?
