Creamy Ham and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2015
I had to substitute havarti for Swiss, and used a Rosemary deli sliced ham, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was delicious cheesy and creamy, just as described. Will make again.

Breaded SPAM® Steaks

Reviewed: May 26, 2015
I have to admit defeat. I guess it's true sometimes you just can't go back home. I've been searching to relive my childhood dinners when my mom would fried spam. This is the second recipe I've tried, as well as just frying it

Fried Boiled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
This was too much work for little pay off. Interesting idea, but for me the frying didn't impart that much flavour, and I would much prefer soft boiled eggs or actual fried eggs instead. My 2 year old stole them off my plate though, so nothing wasted. On the positive side, this gave me the chance to try steaming my eggs in my Instant Pot pressure cooker which I've been wanting to do. The eggs cooked quickly and peeled so easily.

Bacon-Wrapped Feta

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2015
I thought this was ok as is, but could be easily enhanced with other ingredients. I microwaved my bacon for a few minutes first before wrapping and broiling in the oven. I used parchment paper as suggested, but it started browning and smoking so I had to pull it out. Use foil instead. I used a greek feta, which I found too strong if the chunks were too big. I dipped a few in maple syrup, which was not bad, and a few I ate with a wedge of tomato. Pretty good.

Gnocchi I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2015
Simple ingredients but technique will take some practice. I used a ricer with 2 leftover boiled potatoes. I think they may have had too much moisture resulting in gnocchi that was a bit heavy. I boiled until they floated and then pan fried in butter and parsley and served with parmesan cheese. Some of the portions I let brown longer and I really liked those ones the best. I served the kids the gnocchi with a jar of rose sauce. For my first time making gnocchi, it was pretty successful and I'd be willing to try again.

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2015
Halved the recipe and used salsa instead of diced tomatoes. I added frozen corn to the meat mixture and spread the refried beans on the tortillas. I would definitely make this again, but only use half a can of refried beans to suit our tastes. This a great base recipe you can tweak to your preferences.

Graham Crust Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2015
These were a delicious variation on your traditional butter tart in a pastry shell. I found that I only needed 1 1/2 cups of the graham cracker crumb mix to fill my 12 muffin tins. A hint for packing down your graham crackers is to use the bottom of your 1/4 cup measuring cup to push down the graham cracker crust firmly. 12 tablespoons is equal to 3/4 cup, which might be helpful to know when measuring out your butter. I split the recipe between the original as written, and the second half using Splenda white and Splenda brown sugar blend. Both were great, so this recipe adapts well for those looking to reduce the calories. By using Splenda I brought the calories down to 250, and the carbs down to 19 g per serving. I worried that I might not be a able to take these out of the muffin tins without breaking them, but once cooled and loosened on the edges with a sharp knife, they came right out. Next time I'd like to try adding nuts, chocolate or coconut. Thanks for the great recipe.

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2014
I halved the recipe and followed the recipe exactly (with the slight exception of using dehydrated onions.) Everyone liked this including the kids. I'm thinking that next time I might mix the mashed potatoes first and then lightly stir in the spinach at the end. I found with mixing the sour cream and spinach made everything green tinged instead...just not as attractive as some of the pictures that are posted. Good recipe!

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2014
I liked this recipe and would make again. I don't agree with the change suggested in the video to halve the amount of milk to add. I found ours thickened too much, and really became congealed as it cooled on the plate. I will add the suggested amount of milk next time.

Paleo Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2014
I made this recipe with some slight changes. Used cold butter instead of coconut oil, using a pastry cutter to incorporate. I used baking powder instead of baking soda, and baked on a lightly greased muffin top pan. These were good, (but did not pass the kid test) I am trying to get used to the nutty flavour of almond flour, and figure what to use them for. They did bake up to a nice biscuit texture - a bit crumbly like cornbread. I will consider making again if I'm craving a bread like food.

Taco Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
We had this for dinner tonight and everyone thought it was pretty good (even for my 5 and 2 year old). I added half a green onion, but would just leave it out next time. I cooked up the 1 lb of taco meat, but halved this recipe, which gave us 4 adequate portions, without leftovers which I don't think would save well.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2014
My guests ate this, but maybe they were really hungry...I was not very proud of it. I used the canned chicken because although my instincts were to use a rotisserie chicken, my grocery store didn't have any ready when I was shopping. I'm going to try it again with a rotisserie chicken because it has such rave reviews...but canned chicken is just not for me.

Won Ton Wrapper Appetizers

Didn't love these...maybe it was the choice in sausage?

Baby BLT

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2014
These were well received at our party but they are a lot of work. I added cream cheese, and piped the filling in with a ziplock bag.
