Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
My kids said this was okay. I will not make it again. I had some difficulties with the recipe. 1-First of all, the crust was not good. While making the crust the eggs curdled, even though I followed another reviewer's advice of adding a little of the chocolate mixture to the beaten eggs before adding it to the whole pot. Still didn't work. As a result the crust did not hold very well. It was very crumbly. 2- The creamy middle was basically the consistency of a thick frosting. It was way too sweet. I didn't understand the point of using custard powder as it was not 'custardy' at all. Also spreading the creamy filling was difficult. It was very thick and kept picking up crumbs from the crust. The only reason I am giving this 3 stars is because the kids still liked the taste.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
Very flavourful. Some in my family love it, while others think it's "okay". The pecans are a really nice touch. I have also made this recipe with less carbs by substituting the bread crumbs for unsweetened coconut powder. Also i have tried roasted almond slices when i didn't have pecans. Overall this is good.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This was extremely tasty and moist. I had cooked mashed pumpkin, but not enough, so i added shredded apples to make up for it. It still turned out perfect.

Authentic Bangladeshi Beef Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Very flavourful, and tastes almost as good as the curry my Bengali friend makes. That's why it's only a 4. But it's better than i can come up with on my own. Definitely will make again.

Baked Parmesan-Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I have tasted better. I thought the bake time was too much. The chicken was cooked through within 30 min. I also cut some of the chicken into 'nuggets' for the kids. Tasty but not great.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Very good, but a little too sweet from the condensed milk and chocolate chips. Still everyone liked it. The only other problem was that the chocolate chips were mostly at the top of the cake. I followed the tips of other reviewers but it still didn't stay down once the batter was poured in.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Never fails. Very easy to make. It is the best homemade crust i have ever made. Sometimes I double up the recipe and freeze one ball of dough right after kneading. I put it in a large oiled freezer bag, pressing out the air before closing. Voila! Frozen pizza dough ready to defrost and rise on the counter (still in the bag) the next time pizza is on the menu. My kids actually tell me that it's as good or better than some of the pizza chain stores. Another tip is to make mini pizzas and put them in the freezer wrapped in foil. Reheat in the oven for only a few minutes. I also pack the mini pizzas for the kids' school lunches.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I pour the hot mixture into paper cups for individual servings. Some of my kids find it too rich for their palates, so they often don't eat too much at one sitting, although they love it. Serving in paper cups also allows me to control how many servings they get, and that everyone gets an equal share. TIP: to balance out the richness and sweetness of the pudding, serve cooled with a tablespoon of UNSWEETENED whipped cream. This is an excellent recipe, particularly because it is so tasty and so easy to make.

Dad's Asian Slaw

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Must add noodles a few minutes before serving. Very tasty. Most people I have served this to love it and ask for the recipe.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This recipe must be followed to a T in order for it to be a success. It never fails. The texture is perfect and creamy and soft. It has just the right amount of sweetness.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Always a hit when I serve this. I usually substitute half the white flour for whole wheat. The kids don't notice a thing. Warning - this is very sweet, particularly if you are using sweet apples, like Gala. Still it is very tasty.

This is a good recipe that has a lot of room for substitutions depending on what you have in the pantry.

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
I used brown rice and substituted the dill weed for oregano because i didn't have the dill. I also used fresh parsley instead of dried. It was pretty good, but I will use less tomato sauce next time. I also added a clove of garlic as it seemed it would lack flavour otherwise.

Clinton's Special Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
This was really good. The kids said they liked it because it didn't have the 'eggy' taste. The cottage cheese gives it a ricotta texture. I baked these in 12 muffin tins using puff pastry squares. I had some left over egg mixture so I baked that in a small pyrex baking dish without the crust for a wheat free option. Everything was baked in about 25 min. I also used frozen spinach instead of fresh because that's what I had on hand. I also used green onion instead of regular onion because of personal preference. I omitted the nutmeg because I don't like nutmeg in cheese dishes. Again because of the kids, I left out the bottom onion and tomato layer. It seems like a lot of changes but the basic egg mixture was the same, minus the nutmeg. I will make this again. I served the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. It's great for those vegetarian dinners, and for breakfast. To reheat the next morning, just put on a baking sheet and warm in the oven at 350 deg for about 10 min.

Chinese Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2013
This was quite good. Made it without cornstarch to cut the carbs. Also used honey instead of sugar. The only problem was that i found it to be too salty. I ended up adding a little water and then spooning the extra liquid out. That helped to decrease the saltiness. The texture still turned out good.

Almond Wild Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
I made this exactly as is except that i skipped the toasting of the almonds in butter. I already had toasted almonds on hand. I also added the salt and pepper to the raw rice before cooking. I liked the simplicity of this recipe and that the flavours were complimentary.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Pretty good recipe. I did find the bake time to be too much. The bottoms were a little too crispy. Also you must use parchment paper to line the pan for easier clean up.
