Double Chocolate Brownies from Egg Farmers of Ontario

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
These brownies are very moist and have a good flavor. I especially enjoyed the chocolate chips. I didn't change a thing except to bake for a few extra minutes, and I used an 8x8 pan, because that's all I had. I wouldn't use a larger pan unless you like really thin brownies.

Swiss Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
We loved this recipe! I made a few changes: 1) I cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise, so that it would cook faster. To compensate, I doubled the soup, milk, and butter. I used two 6oz boxes of herb-seasoned stuffing mix and added a dash of white wine (Moscato) to the soup/milk mixture. I layered frozen broccoli florets after the Swiss cheese and put down the stuffing mix before generously spooning the soup mixture and the butter over the crumbs. I cooked this on 375 degrees for 50 minutes, which came out perfect. Oh, and I sprinkled the chicken with the following seasonings: fresh ground sea salt & black pepper, whole oregano, parsley, celery seed, basil, garlic powder, rosemary, and a little Garden Veggie Dip Mix (Tastefully Simple brand which is basically flakes of red bell pepper, garlic, onion, spinach, carrot, leek, salt, crushed red pepper, oregano, parsley, basil, thyme, & rosemary). So good!

Amazing Peanut Butter Cup Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
I made these for Recipe Group. This was my first time making biscotti, and this recipe turned out beautifully. Next time, I may add just a few chocolate chips to the batter for a little extra chocolate, but this recipe really didn't need any changes. I love the pairing of peanut butter and chocolate. Yummy!

Homemade Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This is a great recipe for sloppy joes! The only change I made was to use less water with the sauce. I served this with the French Fries I recipe and the Becel® Browned Buttery Brussels Sprouts recipe (both from this site and both delicious!!). Perfect, easy dinner!

Baked Asparagus with Butter and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Well this was just delicious, and I will definitely use this recipe again. The only change that I would make would be to add some garlic. Thank you for another great recipe, Don! EDIT: I use this recipe a lot now. Love it!

Becel® Browned Buttery Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
I liked this recipe and plan to make it again. It is a simple and delicious side dish. I sautéed the brussels sprouts in butter (not margarine) and didn't use shallot or onion. Instead, I just sprinkled some onion powder on them.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
I kept everything the same, except that I added double cinnamon. Yum! My husband loves this, so I make it often.

Betty's Famous Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
This is a good recipe for cinnamon rolls. I left out the pecans and maple extract, because I didn't have any, and I accidentally rolled the dough the wrong way, so I came out with 10 giant rolls, but I just cut them in half to serve. :) The bread part came out fluffy, and the taste was sweet, but not too sweet. My glaze was too thick to drizzle, but (since I didn't have a lot of time to continue adding butter), I just smeared it thinly with a spoon, and it melted a bit. I would use this recipe again.

A New Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
I liked this alot! Very flavorful! I used a smaller pan for the green beans, since a 13x9 was too big to get an even layer of green beans on the bottom. Also, I used a little less onion than the recipe called for, and I used fresh grated parmesan cheese. Next time I will use more parmesan cheese to completely cover the greenish/brownish color of the onions and green beans, and maybe even mix some in with the green beans in addition to the top for extra flavor. I will definitely make this again!

Breaded Parmesan Ranch Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
This is a delicious dish! I didn't have corn flakes, so I used crushed ritz crackers. That was the only change I made. I love this! Oh, and I used freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Cinnamon-Apple Crostata

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
This tasted great! My only suggestion would be to use a homemade pie crust. I bought one at the store, because I didn't have time to make the crust, and it ripped a small amount when I folded it over the apples mixture. This caused the liquid to leak out a bit while it was baking, which ultimately caused the pie to break apart in the middle. I will certainly make this again, but with a different crust.

Creamed German Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
This was very good! I added minced garlic with the onion, because, in my opinion, main dishes are always better with garlic. I took the advice from another reviewer to coat the chicken in flour before browning it. Also, when I put the chicken in the sauce for the last part of the cooking, I covered the pan so that it would cook faster. I will definitely make this again!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
This is a great bread recipe. I made this with my KA stand mixer. I brushed it with egg white and placed a pan of steaming water in the rack below the bread in the oven for the first 5-10 minutes. This gave it a crunchier crust.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
This dessert is absolutely amazing! My guests all had seconds and probably would have had thirds if I had any left. Following the advice of other reviewers, I used a 9x9 cake pan and changed the following ingredient amounts: 1 cup white sugar, 2 large bananas, and baking soda instead of baking powder. I sprinkled each piece with powdered sugar. My only concern is that my chocolate chips all sunk to the bottom and middle of the cake. Overall, the chocolate sinking didn't really matter, because it tasted fantastic! I can't wait to make this again.

Red, White and Blue Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
These were good. I added worcestershire and used a full dry ranch packet. I also caramelized the onion a bit with some minced garlic before adding it to the meat (drained and cooled, of course). Also, I doubled the blue cheese. This made the blue cheese flavor a little strong, but I realized it would have been better if I crumbled the bigger pieces of cheese before adding them. I let the meat sit for an hour before shaping. Then, I broiled them in my oven for about 7 minutes on each side for medium-well burgers. Didn't even top this burger with cheese, because it was already very flavorful. They came out very tender and moist.

Emergency Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Wow! This was very easy to make and sooo good! I am glad I doubled the recipe, because we were definitely hoping to eat this again. It is easy, but very good! The only change I made was to simmer the chicken for a bit longer than the recipe suggests. I served this in a bowl over garlic mashed potatoes! Yum!

Old Fashioned Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I shaped these by hand and will use less oil next time (1/2 cup is way too much for these!) This is a nice way to use up extra mashed potatoes. I served them with dollops of sour cream. I will definitely make them again!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Wow! This was sooo good! Definitely a good way to use up some day-old bread. Only change I made was to toss the bread cubes in some cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Oh, and I served this with a big dollop of whipped cream. No leftovers! I will definitely make this again!

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I really enjoyed this salsa. Love the flavors! I used one Serrano pepper and one Fresno pepper, and that was the right amount of heat. Hot, but not unbearable... Made this in the food processor. (First chopped tomatoes and a small green pepper and put them in a small bowl. Then, chopped the cilantro, onion, and hot peppers. Finally, I mixed everything together. Oh, and I used sea salt...) I will definitely use this salsa again!

Creme Brulee Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
These are pretty good if you make them with a very light sugar mix topping. I had two teen boys taste-test these. The first batch was very sweet. They gave them 3 stars. I gave the recipe 4 stars, because I made another batch that had a VERY thin layer of the sugar mixture on them. Not sure if I would make these again, unless serving them for dessert. They came out a little thin, but the texture was fluffy as the submitter stated.
