Chicken Breasts with Olives

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
I was craving something tangy and different to go with my chicken, and this recipe did not disappoint! I will admit that I made a few changes based on our own tastes and what we had in the cupboard (dried basil instead of terragon, olive oil instead of butter). I baked the dish in a covered pan based on another cooks review, and I think this helped to seal in the flavour. I crumbled some feta cheese ontop and baked uncovered for the last 8 minutes of baking. I'm not sure what the one reviewer claiming that this recipe lacks flavour was talking about, this was exactly what I'd hoped it would be.

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
This is the first time I've made oatmeal that wasn't from a box or a package. It's really good, nice and creamy, and very hearty! I do agree with other reviewers that it's a bit sweet as is for breakfast (and I do have a sweet tooth!). I would suggest cutting the brown sugar down to a generous 1/4 cup, and adding a splash of vanilla. Next time I'll try adding some fresh fruit too!

Butter Tarts II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
This recipe was simple, but so was the taste. Its fine if you're looking for an OK tart. I personally prefer a butter tart with a gooier center and more filling. The addition of lemon extract was interesting, but I did find it took away from the sweetness a bit. If that's what you're looking for in a tart, its great. Personally, I've had better.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
These are the best double baked potatoes I've ever had!! Like most people do, I did tweak it for our tastes. I excluded the onion and added a clove of garlic instead. I also used marble cheese instead of a sharp cheddar just because that's what we had on hand, I'm sure cheddar would have been even more amazing. One other thing I did that wasn't mentioned in the recipe, I rubbed the potatoes with olive oil and lightly salted them before baking, this made the skin tasty and just a bit crispy. These potatoes will definitely end up on our dinner table again soon!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
I have made this type of bar at least a dozen times growing up, they were one of my family's favourites. It had been a while since I made them so I thought it best to consult a recipe just to make sure I got the measurements right. I folowed this recipe to a T, and the only thing that differed as far as I could tell is the treatment of the graham cracker crumbs and butter. I thought I had remembered combining them seperately then patting it into the bottom of the dish. This recipes method seemed simpler (melt the butter, pour into pan, sprinkle graham crackers on top) so I thought I'd try it. BIG MISTAKE! the crust was so dry and didn't hold together at all! Its just a mess. If anyone is attempting to make these, I strongly suggest combining the crust seperately to make sure there's enough butter and it holds together.
