Apple Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
Tasted like a pretty standard apple cake, really can't call it a brownie though, the texture was light and fluffy. (Good as a cake, but not what I was looking for)

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
This fudge turned out amazingly! As always, I had a heart attack waiting for it to come to temp, took about 25 mins, but my candy thermometer is an old friend, and trusting it got the fudge perfect. Once it hit soft-ball stage, I dropped the butter in pieces, and let it sit until melted, the stirred it for about 10 mins, it was still a bit glossy, but was firming up well. Put it in a pan lined with parchment paper (so it can be lifted right out of the pan, and cut easily), turned out great. Kudo's to the reviewer who suggested making hot chocolate with the mixture that stuck to the pan, that was also delicious.

Double Chocolate Cherry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
These are pretty good, nice balance of chocolate and cherry flavours. I left my cherries halved, and I like the big chunks. Also used vanilla yogurt that needed to be used up instead of sourcream. The batter was pretty thick, I spooned it into regular sized muffin tins in heaping tablespoons, and cooked for about 18 mins.

Ginger Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
I've made this recipe a few times now, and I love the texture of these muffins, but as written there's just not enough flavour. I tend to half the recipe, which gives me 12 decent size muffins, and for my halved recipe I use 2 rounded tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, and a pinch each of nutmeg, cloves, and all spice. Then I top them with apple sauce, also made with copious amounts of cinnamon.

Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
Tried these today with beef stew as an alternative to my standard baking powder biscuits, and they worked really well. I made the recipe as stated, but found I didn't the full amount of milk to make a soft dough. I made 6 large dumplings, and had some dough left over (but no more room in the pot for more, and no time to do it in batches), checked them at 15 mins, then covered for an additional 5 mins. They came out fluffy and fully cooked, my husband loved them!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
Loved the taste, and the thick batter made lovely fluffy, tall pancakes, but I guess I was too hungry to cook these, I would recommend lower heat for a longer time than you cook normal pancakes, mine were a bit gooey in the middle.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Just tried this, as per the instructions (well, that was my intention) It was good, but if I make it again, I'll use less cinnamon and more curry - while it was cooking all I could smell was cinnamon, and with a nose full of that it's hard to taste much else. I had to de-glaze the pan immediately after adding spices, medium on my stove was too hot, and the spices started to burn. I just added a couple tbsp of the coconut milk, then let the spices cook with the onion for a couple minutes. I did only use 1 chicken breast, as tonight it's just me eating, but left the sauce alone because I want sauce on every grain of rice and more to dip some naan into. On the first bite I was a bit disappointed, but as I kept eating and the flavours built up in my mouth, it got better.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
Good basic stew recipe. I did this in the slow cooker, onions on the bottom, layer of potatoes, then the beef. I browned the beef first in hot oil, seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I made the liquid part as per recipe, but added 1 TBSP of worchestershire sauce, and a bay leaf. I didn't have carrots or celery on hand, but when there was about 45 mins left to supper I added mushrooms and 5 TBSP of cornstarch (the stew was really soupy), and it turned out perfectly - but I fed 4 people, with just enough left overs for 2 servings. Served with baking powder biscuits, and was delicious.

Chicken Rotini Stovetop Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
4 stars for the idea, but there's no way I'm getting that many pots dirty for a weeknight meal. I cooked the chicken in a dutch oven, added onions, garlic, and mushrooms. When that was all cooked, I added the cream, and double the spices. When that boiled I turned the hear down and added the cheese. Once that was melted in and smooth, I stirred the hot cooked pasta in along with 1/2 a bell pepper and some broccoli. I covered the pot, and let the whole thing sit on low for 10 mins, then ate. The sauce was quite thin (I did let it simmer for about 15 mins before adding the cheese), but when I mixed in the pasta it spread through and stuck to the pasta, and worked quite well.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
Delicious and simple! Didn't feel like digging the bread maker out (Not enough counter space to have it handy), so I proofed the yeast with water and sugar, mixed the salt into the flour, and combined everything in the kitchen aid with the dough hook until it came together, then 1 min, and hand kneaded for a couple more mins. The crust was more chewy than crunchy, but I like it that way.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
I've made these by the recipe a few times, just omitting the pecans sue to allergies, and I love them. This time I wanted a little more flavour, so I added 1tsp cinnamon, 1/4tsp ginger, and 1/8tsp each nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. Turned out amazing. My only issue is that at least one of the muffins crumbles into several pieces when I try to remove them from the pan, I wish they held their shape a little better

Easiest Focaccia Recipe

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
Amazing! A good, simple recipe that could easily be adapted. the dough came out very light after rising, and made a fantastic basic bread. I added garlic powder and black pepper to the top before baking. I love how fast it was, and plan to use this for pizza dough, and would love to try on it the grill next summer! UPDATE: Just did this on the BBQ, burners on medium, bottom of crust oiled for about 5 mins, then off to the side on indirect heat when I added the toppings (caramelized onion with red wine and balsamic, roasted garlic, cherry tomato halves, and zucchini matchsticks). Worked out amazing! really light and fluffy, with a crunchy bottom.
