Apple Dumplings with Rich Cinnamon Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I used the method for making the dumplings of enclosing the apple 1/4's in crescent rolls with this sauce. This will definately be my 'go to' sauce for dumplings in the future

Pork Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
For the oil, use what you feel you need to keep the stir-fry moving. If you can do that on 2 tsps. total, great! I think the trick to using less oil is to get your pan just the right temperature. If the heat is too low the oil gets sucked up quickly. I never measure when I cook my tried and true recipes so estimating the amount of oil was difficult, I admit. I have switched to light olive oil in my kitchen for almost everything. Grapeseed oil would be best for this as it is really light and can tolerate higher heats without compromise. For those saying the recipe needs flavour - follow the recipe!!! I know powdered ginger doesn't give the flavour, hence I advise FRESH in the recipe and should be used to taste.

Easiest Banana-Fig-Oat Cookie, No sugar added. Vegan.

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
Just made these this morning ~ Thank you! I have been looking everywhere for a cookie recipe with no egg white and no gluten for my little grandaughter while I am here to visit. I had to make alot of improvs due to availability. No gluten free oats, so used 4 packs of instant gluten free apple/cinnamon oatmeal, the bananas (which I froze & defrosted to get soft enough fast) and because she is just a year and trying to get good stuff in her, I added 2 egg yolks and 3/4 cup finely diced frozen spinach. The judging panel woke from her nap and LOVES them! To keep them soft for her, I baked 12 minutes and cooled on countertop. Thank you! Thank you!!!

Lemon Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
yum, Yum, YUM!, these are fantastic! The base is to die for and the filling lush! I added a tsp. of lemon extract, because I had it on hand, used the lemon zest and the lemon flavour was still light. I served it with french vanilla ice-cream which balanced it beautifully.

Apple Dumplings I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Just made these thi evening and ate warm with french vanilla ice-cream. I was worried because when I went to put it together, I realised I had less than a tsp of vanilla. I added a splash of grand marnier to the sauce and they were amazing. Others I made, I found way too sweet,t his one is just perfect!

Apricot Cashew Clusters

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Made these as soon as I saw the recipe because I had everything on hand! I used 1/2 regular chips and 1/2 special dark. I also added a bit of sea salt just before the final stir because I love the whole sweet/salty thing going on. I am IN LOVE!!! I may have chopped my apricots a bit small, I would recommend keeping them similar in size to your cashews. Thank you for sharing this recipe, I will be making it again and again!

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
Aug 1/11 ~ Did this again but for the first time tried it on the grill. It was absolutely delicious. I put it on my gas grill using indirect heat and maintained the temperature between 250* and 275* glazing every 15 minutes. I had it on about 1 1/2 ~ 2 hours. This time I served it with Emily's Famous Hashbrowns (this site) and sauteed cabbage. We throughly enjoyed this tonight with scalloped potatoes and veggies. A real winner! I will be using some of the leftovers in baked beans and can hardly wait! Thank you for sharing, delicious!

Lemon Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I want to give this one star for not making enough!!! Fabulous! I gave up dipping the whole thing in butter and dipped the tops. When eating, I preferred the ones with just the tops dipped as they were more firm and not quite so messy to eat. I did double the nutmeg based on other reviews and have a grinder that I love using! I also made a second batch with a lemon twist (see my custom recipe if you're interested)

Orange-Pumpkin Poppy Seed Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I made the mistake of not reading this properly before I told my daughter-in-law I was bringing a orange/pumpkin breakfast loaf for our weekend visit! I went ahead with it and super happy I did! This made a fabulous loaf (I didn't ice it) so incredibly moist and delicious!

Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Awesome Recipe!! We throughly enjoyed these for dinner with a bowl of green pea soup ~ Thank you What's For Dinner Mom!!! I had a very "Fun" experience making these (see my Profile/Cooking Tragedies for a laugh at my expense). I got these all ready, boiled, egg wash and salted and baked 1/2 the batch right away and put the other 1/2 in the fridge until closer to dinner (about 1.5 hours) there was no difference in the end result ~ perfection! Will definately make these again :)

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I made these today and love them! I didn't do the topping because I didn't feel we needed the extra sugar for breakfasts and glad I didn't! They are perfect for our taste, not too sweet, the lemon flavour is there without being overpowering and they are moist with a bit of crunch on top! Next time to compensate for not making the glaze I might add a bit more lemon zest. Love this recipe and look forward to trying it with orange also ~ you could put a few chocolate chips in these and call them cupcakes they are that light!

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
I made these last minute because someone onte Buzz got me thinking about meatballs and this recipe at 4:00pm, lol I found the sauce just a bit sweet for my taste so I added about 2 more tsp. of soya sauce and a dash of worchestshire sauce. I also used dark brown sugar because I prefer it for a savory sauce. That is completely personal taste though. It was a really nice thick sauce.

Tree-Shaped Crescent Veggie Appetizers

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
I took this to a work party and not only did it get great reviews for flavour but it was the only show stopper there! I did one very large tree on a foil oven liner. I used Philly whipped herb & garlic cream cheese and multi colored peppers, finely chooped heart of celery and green onion for decorations. I put another large cookie sheet underneath to transport and it held up perfect for the trip!

Spoon Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
These were absolutely yummy!! I only had 5 hours for my fridge time, but pushed ahead with great results. I was trying to duplicate something I saw on Hell's Kitchen and was similar to some buns we had in a restaurant once. These were restaurant worthy for sure! I baked mine in a mini muffin tin, brushed with egg and sprinkled with sesame seeds. I baked for about 18 minutes.
