Cape Breton Blueberry Grunt

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Baked up just perfect in a little under 40 minutes! Hailing from the Annapolis Valley in NS, this dessert is a must at blueberry season! Served it up with some whipped cream! Wouldn't change a thing!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
This is certainly a family favourite! We're a "hockey" family so it's easier to throw this in a crockpot for a few hours on high setting in the early afternoon than it is to cook just before supper, and my son has a hearty supper with no fuss before his game! Enjoy!

Chewy Cocoa Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
If you like a thick, dense brownie this is the recipe you want. I double the recipe to really fill the 9x13 pan and add a cup of chocolate chips as an extra. Be careful though, will dry out if overcooked!

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2005
I didn't have self rising flour, so I used (according to a "substitutions" website I found) 1 cup of flour (minus 2 tsp), 1/2 tsp salt and 1 1/2 tsp baking powder for every cup of self rising flour. I doubled the recipe, and used 2-28 ounce cans of peaches (I like lots) but only the juice/syrup from one and cooked in a 9x13 pan until golden brown on top. LOVED IT!!!!!! Thanks so much! (served with whipped cream while still hot!)

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2005
I just used the recipe for the sauce and put some frozen premade meatballs in the pot to simmer. Excellent! I was looking for a recipe without ketchup, as no one in my house likes the "red" sweet and sour sauce. Bravo! The perfect sauce!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2004
I was kind of discouraged by the negative reviews, but alas, tried the recipe with a few adjustments made to accomodate the (lack of) ingredients I had on hand. I used half shortening and half butter (1/2 cup each) and almond extract in lieu of vanilla. A soft, chewy cookie! PERFECT!

WOW! Helped my brother make this and it turned out amazing. We added a smash of maple extract to the water. I wouldn't change a thing in this recipe!

Butter Tart Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2004
YUM! I doubled the recipe because hubby loves butter tarts and I just didn't have the time to make them today. It doubles very well (in a 9 x 13 pan)! I used a little smash of cinnamon in the crust and rum extract instead of vanilla in the filling. I might try maple extract next time. Overall, an excellent square!

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2004
A little bland, quite heavy. This was my first try with these muffins so I will try them one more time and post my findings again. I certainly wouldn't enter any contests with this muffin recipe.

No Bake Choco-Peanut-Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2004
The taste is excellent. I added one cup of flaked cocoanut. I'm wondering though, if quick cooking oats would absorb some of the liquid, as with the three cups of regular rolled oats, there was alot of liquid left over. The cookie itelf was quite loose. I had to use 4 cups of rolled oats. A YUMMY COOKIE!

Caramel Crispy Treats II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2004
WOW! A nice variation of the rice krispie treat. Milky Way bars are VERY hard to find here in Canada (especially in a small east coast town). With a little help from my sister (who lives in the US) we discovered that Mars Bars are the equivalent to the US Milky Way bars. You need to use "king size" Mars Bars or 6 of the regular size. Happy baking! You'll be sure to love this one!

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2004
This was my first shot at making bread since my breadmaker started burning everything, and I don't think I'll ever make bread with the breadmaker again! Family loved it, as did friends! I applaud you, Grandma VanDoren!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2002
One of my co workers was looking for a carrot cake recipe that was easy to make, and didn't crumble alot when cut. This one is perfect, even after I added coconut to the recipe. I took one to to work and it was gobbled up in no time!

Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
I have a slow cooker recipe like this one but it turns out quite sticky. This recipe is much better and I will be making it again. It pleased everyone in my family!

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2002
Tried it, and realized I didn't have butter, so I used half margarine and half golden crisco. It didn't effect the taste at all and turned out wonderful. I prefer using brown sugar when cooking with apples so I did that too. Wonderful!!

Mrs. Fields Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2002
I altered this recipe a bit and used margarine instead of butter and omitted the salt. I also used Almond flavour in lieu of vanilla. As an added touch (courtesy of my son) milk chocolate chips were thrown in. These cookies turned out great!

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2002
I doubled this recipe and cooked it in a x13 pan for 35 minutes and it was great! My five year old son gobbled them up, as did my dad when he came for a visit. This is the perfect chewy brownie recipe!
