Cinnamon Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2014
We never had cinnamon toast in our house when I was a kid. Friends had us over for brunch when I was about 8, and cinnamon toast was one of the things on the menu for the kids. It was so good! Who knew such a thing existed? When this recipe showed up in my inbox one day, I saved it, and made it tonight to satisfy a sweet cinnamon craving. It is still so good 45 years later! I have a shaker-full of the mix on my counter now. Thank you for sharing this special treat.

Western Omelet Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
I just made this for dinner and it was very tasty and filling. I like the proportions of the ingredients, which made the sandwiches very flavourful. I made it exactly as written, using red onion and deli sliced ham. I always order toasted westerns in restaurants but I liked this one better. Thank you for the recipe.

Heavenly Raspberry Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
This is kind of a biased review because it's my mother's recipe that I uploaded. That being said, it's very good.

Old Fashioned Raisin Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Raisin Pie is my Dad's favourite so I made this for his birthday. I have to give it 5 stars based on his review, which was an enthusiastic 'wouldn't change a thing'. Um, he didn't share any of it with anybody.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Easy and spectacular! I made this for my nephew's birthday and everyone raved about it. I used chocolate wafers for the crumb layer and around the outside, Chocolate Crunch ice cream for the bottom layer, and vanilla for the scoops. I put a blob of Strawberry Lavender jam on top of each scoop, then drizzled with hot fudge topping. I didn't add any whipped cream. It was gone before it had a chance to melt. This was such a fun dessert to make, and it looked very special. Thanks for the great recipe!

Clams Kokkinisto

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
This recipe is delicious. I've been eyeing it up for a while and finally gave it a whirl. I've never tried clams and had bought a can out of curiosity. I halved the recipe as there are only the two of us, and had to leave out the celery because I didn't have any. I used small diced canned tomatoes that were already flavoured with garlic and olive oil for an extra little hit of garlic. Instead of salt, I added a smidge of sugar which I love in tomato sauces, served over pasta shells which seemed appropriate, and topped with feta which I grated instead of crumbling. Thanks for the great recipe!

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
We live in Ontario and wondered what the heck a hush puppy was. We had it on good authority (friends from Tennessee) that they're pretty tasty, so we had to give these a try. Now I know what we've been missing. They taste like little deep-fried corn muffins with onion in them. I didn't have the self-rising ingredients, so I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of salt as suggested in other reviews. I added 1/2 cup of frozen corn kernels that had been chopped fairly small, and the moisture that was created as they thawed added enough moisture to the batter that I didn't need to add any milk as suggested by other reviewers. They were absolutely delicious. I think they would taste great alongside a bowl of chili. Thanks for the great recipe.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I haven't tried the recipe yet, but after browsing the photos and seeing all of the creations it has inspired, it has to be good. All of the decorations are spectacular. What a fun recipe.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This is a foolproof and perfect recipe for peanut brittle. The first batch was intended for the Christmas treat tray but it didn't make it because we ate it all. Had to buy more peanuts and start over. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
While I wrapped each little spear with half a slice of bacon and then closed with the toothpicks, I thought it was a wee bit fiddly. My favourite griller thought it was a wee bit fiddly because he had to pick up and turn each little spear instead of rolling them around because of the toothpicks. "Let's see what they taste like first, and then we'll decide if they're worth it", we said. One bite was all it took, and it was unanimous - they're definitely worth it!! I brushed them with olive oil before wrapping with bacon, and sprinkled with fresh ground black pepper. That's all you need! Great yummy recipe!

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
I fully agree with the reviews that call this recipe outstanding. It was not the least bit dry, and the flavour of the sauce permeated throughout the chicken so that it was not necessary to dip in extra sauce. The honey mustard itself is the best. How lucky was I that I had Miel de romarin (rosemary honey) from France, and dijon mustard flavoured with chardonnay. It was over the top. This recipe is one of our new favourites.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
Divine! I chopped everything very fine and put it in the saucepan without water as suggested by others. I didn't blend it afterwards and it was great. I had heard of tomatillos but never saw them until a visit to our local farmers market last week. I only got enough to make half this recipe and it went pretty quick. Also added the juice of half a lime. I ate it all with tortilla scoops with a dab of sour cream. Scrumptious recipe!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Scrumptious! They remind me of the Tiny Tom donuts that we used to get at the Food pavilion of the Canadian National Exhibition every summer. They made them from scratch on a little donut conveyor belt. These taste just as good, except they're much better because they're not deep fried. These simple and basic recipes always taste great.

White Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
Hooray for white sauce! I wanted to make a real live cheese sauce for broccoli like my Mum always made, and this turned out perfectly. I used to be her designated stirrer and cheese adder. I think I added about 6 oz. of grated cheddar. I will use this recipe base for all my sauces from now on. Pure nostalgia.

Pepper Jelly Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
I have made this several times and absolutely love it. I use my homemade red pepper jelly and bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (flavour preference). The glaze is so good and it's one of the easiest dinners to put together. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
I haven't had my Mum's cabbage rolls in years, but I think these are better. I've made these several times now. Each time I doubled the sauce. Last time I used a lovely tomato sauce (strained tomatoes, actually) from Italy which made them spectacular. I cut the core out of the cabbage and boiled it whole, and the leaves peel right off without ripping. I also read a review (thanks, Avon Lady Lisa) that says to trim out the thick part of the leaf which makes it easier to roll. I baked them in the oven for an hour at 350, covered with foil, as suggested in another review. I love these cabbage rolls.

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
Thank you, Ken! This really works. There's nothing worse than boiling a bunch of eggs and ending up with divot devilled eggs.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
Yum! followed the recipe as written to frost Sam's Famous Carrot Cake from this site, which I made into cupcakes. Everybody just loved them. I prefer a cream cheese frosting that is not overly sweet, and this is it.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
I made this recipe into cupcakes for my Mum's 80th birthday celebration and everyone LOVED them. The flavour was great and they were so moist. I made the recipe as written and baked the cupcakes for 30 minutes at 350, then frosted them with Cream Cheese Frosting II from this site. There are many carrot cake lovers in my family and they all commented over and over again how good this recipe is. It really is the best. Thank you, Brian!
