Bellyful of Barbecued Bananas

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
Whoa, Charlie! This is goood. We put the bananas in foil like other reviewers did, and the sauce left behind was thick and delicious. We added 1 tbsp of spiced rum to the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Can't believe how easy this was.

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.

Found this recipe by searching for new ways to prepare that most delectable cut of pork and we absolutely loved it. It was so tender and full of flavour. Thanks for sharing.

This is one of those recipes that you make and then you wonder why you pay good money to eat in a restaurant. What a yummy sandwich!

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.

Cherry Bomb Chicken

No need to repeat what's already been said. An excellent recipe for moist and delicious chicken. It was actually quite simple to make.

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!

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.

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.

Slow Cooker Oats

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I made this recipe this afternoon so I could see how it behaves. It took exactly 6 hours for a nice, creamy consistency. It's 8 pm and I can't stop 'tasting' it. I used half water and half unsweetened apple juice, and one large apple coarsely chopped. It tastes great and I'm looking forward to breakfast being ready for the week. I might use a bit less cinnamon next time. Thanks for the yummy, healthy recipe!

Di's Delicious Deluxe Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
Made as written and they were great. I don't usually put a lot of stuff in devilled eggs except for Miracle Whip and either a sprig of dill or chives, but these were very good. I'll definitely use this recipe again.

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!

Luscious Slush Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
Thank you Valerie Lynne, for a truly luscious punch! I did cut the sugar in half after reading other reviews and it was sweet enough for us. I also used ziploc freezer bags, laid flat to freeze. They were just right the next afternoon. I took it to a luncheon and put it together in a drink dispenser, just like Cookin' Mommy's photo. Next time, I might try my immersion blender to combine the slush and pop. There were many compliments about this punch.
