Manicotti Shells

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
Really simple to make and very tasty. From another reviewer I used the 1/4 cup in a 6" non-stick and it was perfect with just a light spray of oil. Makes enough for two full 9x13 pans.

Thai Beef Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
I was looking for a new use for zucchini and this was LOVELY. I ended up using ground beef and the flavour was good. Although I think my husband and I would have preferred the beef strips, our toddler ate the beef bits (success!). I quickly blanched my broccoli with the pasta and used the hot noodles and beef to slightly steam the rest of the vegetables. Next time I will add more vegetables.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
I got this recipe long ago from a camp cook and when I found I lost the recipe I went looking...so glad I found it! Although I don't make these often, everytime I do I wonder why I don't. Try them frozen - they taste like an amazing ice cream sandwich.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
This recipe may be worth 4 stars but, because it was reviewed so highly and I was disappointed, I am notching down one. It wasn't bad but, A-Number-1 Banana Cake from this site is better (note that I use that recipe for muffins as well as cake and I make it with more bananas and less buttermilk).

Trinidad Pelau

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
I ended up using the entire can (~1.25 cups) of coconut milk and approximately a cup of beef broth (which really boosted the flavour)-the rice need much more liquid. The recipe is mild and the milk gives it a beautiful creamy texture. While I wasn't thrilled with the result, my husband quite liked it. I think this will be a "back-pocket" recipe for any time I need to feed someone who isn't a fan of spice but loves protein and rice!

Herb Roasted Pork

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
Quite good. Like other reviewers, I found this was only enough sauce for a 1-2 lb loin roast. I also substituted dark brown sugar for the sugar and 2 tbsp of flour for the cornstarch. I used my convection oven rotisserie and it came out lovely. I am going to use this sauce/glaze as a base to experiment a bit. EXCELLENT start.

Lazy Dazy Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
This is my Grandma's recipe but doubled (so, you can easily halve this recipe and it makes one layer) - I LOVE this cake. So simple, it is my default "coffee with the neighbour" cake and I change it up as need be - today it contains fresh blueberries and no coconut in the topping. I have also made it with soy milk and it comes out fine.

Chicken with Chipotle

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
My husband and I loved it - a bit too spicy for our toddler. I BBQed the chicken first (seasoned with S&P only) and it came out perfectly! We made just the sauce and served it with steak - quite delicious!

Pumpkin Fluff Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
Unbelievably easy, unbelievably delicious! I used most of a 500mL container of whipped partially sweetened whipping cream and store bought cinnamon snap cookies (Dare brand) and it was perfect! I have also made this dip with mashed sweet potatoe and it was fabulous!

Special Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
I changed the recipe a fair amount but, I LOVED it. I omitted the flour and sugar and added half the applesauce. I also used about 1.5 tbsp of fresh grated ginger and did the whole recipe stovetop. The sauce is LOVELY and I adored the bite from the ginger. I definitely will make it again. UPDATE: I just made this again with a ~2lb loin roast (whole) by searing the roast then making the sauce in the searing pan with at least triple the ginger (grated fresh) and doubling the soy sauce. Baked uncovered for 1.5 hours, "basting" with the sauce every half hour. It was delicious!

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
We LOVED this recipe. I made it only a few weeks ago and my husband has requested it again. I did make a few adjustments, I used left over roast that I quickly sauteed, I added mushrooms to the onion/pepper mixture and I used less mayo than was called for (as per other reviews). YUM!

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
YUM! What an excellent way to eat tomtoe and zucchini. My hubbie probably would only have given it 3-4 stars but, he is not a huge fan of tomatoes (even still, he ate 2 helpings!) I cut the butter by half and doubled the onion (used half of a medium red onion).

Apricot Cheese Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
I made this recipe as muffins and I do think it turned out as it should but, I just didn't love them. That said, I brought them in to work and a few people ate most of them. If you LOVE dates and dried apricots, you will probably LOVE this recipe.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2006
LOVED this dough! I did only use one egg and I baked it on my pizza stone (liberally oiled and a sprinkling of cornmeal). Perfect and SO easy. Definitely will become my regular dough.

Slow Cooker Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
I have made this for Thanksgiving and got requests for it at Easter! Next time I will try a full kg package of corn (peaches and cream is best) and my husband suggested that before serving I bake with a bread crumb crust and I think that might be the only way to possibly improve this amazing recipe! (I skip the sugar)

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
GREAT side! Everyone asked "What is it?" and then loved it! Looked and tasted great! I only steamed for 15 min and next time I will try 10-12. I substituted a great Italian seasoning mix plus a few red pepper flakes for all herbs. I also mixed 2.5 tbsps soft butter into the topping and then gave the steamed cauliflower a good drizzle of olive oil before patting on the crust.

Inside Out Ravioli II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2005
In a word - YUM! I was a tad skeptical but wanted something different and it was great! Next time I will try italian sausage and either mozarella or parmesan (better yet, a mix!). Update: I brought pans of this to my daughters daycare and the kids and adults alike went nuts for it! Freezes amazingly so I usually make two pans and freeze one.

Corn Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
So simple, so fast, SO delicious! I modified by adding two 28oz cans of diced tomatoes and no tomatoe sauce or paste and using chili powder and cumin as spice. The result - RAVE reviews!

Singapore Noodle Curry Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Both my husband and I LOVED it. I did make a few changes though - skipped the shrimp, added chicken and slivered carrots and mushrooms. I also tripled the sauce but only doubled the rest. DEFINITELY will be in the regular rotation!

Simple Maple Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Who knew sugar water could be so tasty! I also subsituted half brown sugar (dark) and vanilla extract. My mom used to make something like this when I was a kid and has since lost the recipe. So glad I have found one (especially because it is SO easy!).
