Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2014
i used 2 tbsp of oil, and used milk (yes i know not vegan) instead of water. they were really great. the batter is really thin at first, but after sitting for a few minutes thickens up.

Canada Day Nanaimo Bar Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2014
followed the recipe exactly. it looks just like the photo. it tasted pretty good, but was absolutely nothing like a nanaimo bar, except in looks. so that was quite disappointing. it's more just a chocolate topped cheesecake. i didn't bother checking while baking and just pulled it out at 40 minutes. it was a bit overbaked, so check around 30-35 minutes. also, i had no problem finding custard powder, maybe it's not something normally stocked in american grocery stores? (i'm in canada.)

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
the best thing about this recipe is that it uses 3 cups of buttermilk! so if you buy buttermilk for something (as i did) it uses it all up haha. that being said, these pancakes are good but not great. i didn't find them to be super fluffy. they were a bit lumpy when cooked (haven't had this problem with other pancakes). they were a bit too egg-y for me. and i wish they were crisp on the outside but that's just a personal preference. so overall these are good but i will try out another buttermilk pancake recipe next time. oh and they do not make too many, unless you don't like pancakes! then why are you making this recipe anyway. i love pancake leftovers.

Russian Cabbage Borscht

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2014
really awesome, loved it. we will definitely make it again. my only complaint is there wasn't enough of it haha. i would double it next time as one batch was about 4 servings for us. i used one yellow potato, one medium beet, one medium onion, probably 3 tbsp butter, crushed tomatoes (instead of tomato puree), omitted the salt, and used 1/8 tsp dried dill.

Tofu Vindaloo

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
i really liked this recipe!! i used regular curry powder. i love all the different ingredients. the recipes i've used before usually just have maybe 3 vegetables and tofu. i used the full amount of oil but you could easily scale this back to a tbsp. NOTE: i made this a second time using light coconut milk and a different curry powder. not good. make sure you use regular coconut milk and get a good curry powder (ex. sharwood's) and don't use a regular grocery store one (ex. no name brand superstore, club house).

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
this is WAY too salty for me. i feel like i need to eat a lot of plain vegetables on the side with this. the taste, aside from salt, is pretty good. not my favourite vegetarian lasagna though and i will look for others. it was really easy to make though for a lasagna. i would omit the rosemary next time - the marinated artichokes and flavoured feta give it enough herbiness.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2012
made these this morning. followed the recipe exactly except used 1/2 tsp salt instead of 1 tsp, and used medium heat. AMAZING! so delicious. highly recommend this recipe. the recipe says it serves 8, but my husband and i finished all of them - all we ate was pancakes though, no other breakfast side dishes.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Looooved this mac & cheese. Super easy to make, really delicious. I did not add any extra milk, as other reviewers suggested, and did not find it dry at all. I also didn't find it to be too much breadcrumbs (as some others did) - though if you make it in a dish with less surface area than a 9x13 pan I could see this being a problem. I used panko instead of regular breadcrumbs though. I also only had 10 oz cottage cheese (instead of 12). Will definitely be making this again.

Irish Cream Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2006
This cheesecake was so delicious. Now in saying that, the cake itself BARELY tasted of Bailey's irish cream liqueur, and by barely I mean it may have just been in my head that there was a slight taste of it. The cheesecake itself is just a really good cheesecake recipe though. I was really concerned that I would bake it for too long, since there wasn't a time specified in the recipe but it turned out. I ended up baking it for about 70-80 minutes. Since I really wanted there to be a taste of Bailey's somehow involved, I made a Bailey's caramel sauce (that someone else suggested to me). I drizzled this on top, and it was amazing. To make the caramel sauce, take 1 cup of sugar and put it in a pot on the stove with just enough water to cover the sugar. Turn the heat to medium, and wait until it starts to turn a light brown (too long and it will burn) - NO STIRRING! After it turns light brown, take off of the heat and add about 1/2 cup of Bailey's. Stand back and let it bubble down. Return to the heat if the caramel doesn't mix completely in - I needed to return it to the heat and even then I found it kind of difficult to get this sauce smooth (but that might just be my inexperience with making caramel). The reason I gave this recipe 4 out of 5 is because the cheesecake is amazing, but it doesn't taste like Bailey's. Someone also recommended to me that I use whiskey instead of Bailey's to get a Bailey's flavour (since Bailey's irish cream is basically whiskey and cream).

Banana Pudding Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 7, 2005
I had high hopes for these cookies. I love banana and the idea just sounded really neat. But... I ended up really disliking the cookies. My grandma was the only one that really liked them, and even then I wonder WHY she liked them. After adding about 1 1/2 or 1 3/4 cup of flour, I liked the consistency of the dough, but it said to add 2 cups of flour and then the extra 1/2 if needed. So I added up to 2 cups of flour, and then it seemed like my dough became too crumbly and the cookies too floury. I hated the fake banana taste of the banana pudding, though the cookies might have been better with another flavour, or if you like the fake banana taste. People said they tasted like sugar cookies, but if this is what sugar cookies taste like, maybe I just really don't like them. I would never make these again.

Banana Split Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2005
this recipe was fun to make because it was like decorating one giant banana split or something. everyone seemed to enjoy it. i found the graham wafer crust too crumbly, though other people didn't have a problem with it. in the future i would add more butter to it. i might also use peanuts instead of walnuts for a topping. this recipe is really easy to modify and add different nuts or fruits, so i like that. :) i'll keep this recipe around.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2004
These were delicious and I will definitely make them again! However, I found that medium-high heat was TOO high. I would also add more onions, maybe 3 tablespoons instead of 1. I only used 1 teaspoon of garlic salt, instead of 1 1/2 teaspoons of regular salt. In the future, I might use real garlic and salt, or more garlic salt.

Icelandic Pepper Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2004
I loved these cookies and so did the people who tried them. The spices are great, though I don't understand why they're called pepper cookies as there is barely any pepper nor can I taste the pepper. I will definitely make these again. Modifications: As someone else suggested, I added about 1/4 cup additional flour. Also, since I hate rolling out dough, I rolled the cookies into balls and then flattened them with the bottom of a glass (another helpful suggestion I found here!) However, instead of using flour to make the glass not stick, I used a bit of water - so that the cookies wouldn't be tougher with added flour. It suggested to bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes I think, but I found that about 14 minutes was perfect for me.

Pumpkin Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2004
I didn't deviate from the recipe, except for the time in the oven (a couple extra minutes). The texture of the cookies was really nice - sort of a mix between a loaf and a cookie I guess. However, I'm not a big fan of butterscotch so they were way too butterscotch-y for me. And I wish that they tasted MORE like pumpkin. If I make them again, I might add pumpkin pie spice and/or more cinammon (as other reviewers suggested).
