Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
Okay, I don't usually bother with rating, but I feel compelled to rate this. I took others advice and cut the sugar, used balsamic vinegar (white) and added fresh blueberries and feta cheese to the salad. Served the dressing on the side which was SO smart. It was part of a large BBQ menu that included salmon, steak, corn, asparagus and potatoes. My best BBQ ever, and thanks to how well this salad paired with everything. Today I enjoyed the leftovers (which is why dressing on the side is so smart) with the leftover salmon, and bought what a yummy dinner just that would make. Next time, for sure....maybe with mandarin oranges

Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
It was easy enough to make, and tasted very good, but not so superior to a good commercial brand that I would bother again. It sure made the house smell good they day I cooked it!

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
Always popular. I use the mini mini pb cups and find that waiting 5 mins or so after the cookies come out of the oven before pressing the pb cup into the center helps to prevent the cookie caving in around it. Maybe if I used the bigger ones that wouldnt happen.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Great to do with left over chicken. Next time I may omit the breadcrumb topping just because there is enough flavour and calories with out it. I did add sour cream and sauteed onion as well. Also I used broccoli and cheese soup. Don't add any salt, the soup has plenty. Served with rice, and the leftovers heated well in the micro next day. I will make this again for sure, and may add more veggies and serve over penne pasta next time.

Apple, Brie, and Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
I gave it 4 stars as is, but the second time I made it I used a maple vinagrette, and added some crisp bacon crumbled. I could have eaten the whole salad with a loaf of fresh crusty bread! That was a 5 star upgrade!

Cherry Crunch

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Simple and impressive. I goofed and realized after putting in the oven that I forgot the brown sugar! So I scraped off the top layer, added 1/2 the called for brown sugar, baked it, and it still came out great! I added the almond extract to filling as advised, and also added chopped toasted almonds to top layer of crumb. I baked in a springform pan, and if you can wait til it cools, it will cut into squares quite nicely

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This has been an essential part of Thanksgiving dinner in my family for years, with one important addition. Cube 4 or 5 slices of fresh bread without crust. Put on top of casserole and drizzle with 2 T. butter prior to baking. The brown toasty topping is perfect. I make this the day before and cook half way without bread topping. The day of, I just take it out of the fridge a little early to take the chill off then top with bread cubes and butter and bake til bubbly and top is nicely browned. I think making it day before makes it better. It's best to cook the brocolli a bit and drain very well, then I just mix all ingredients except bread cubes and pat into pan. I usually use a little smaller casserole because I like it deeper. 9x13 spreads it a little thin.

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Wow! This one's a keeper! I read all the reviews about non meat loaf eaters liking this, and I must say it's true! It's that topping that does the trick! Very moist yet slices cleanly, and makes great left over sandwiches. I use fresh chopped onions and omit the sage. It's also very forgiving time wise. I've been late and let it go an extra 1/2 hr, or not had exactly the amount of ground beef called for and no matter what, the texture is excellent and holds together well. This will be the last meatloaf recipe I try!

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I've not had great luck with scalloped pots in the past, but this recipe restored my confidence. I sauted some garlic with the onions, and used yellow flesh pots. I put a layer of ham on bottom and finished off with grated cheddar on top for last 15 min. Nest time I will add some roasted red peppers, fresh parsley, and top with gruyere or asiago for a side dish.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
I used 1/2 the called for ground beef and added another pound or so of stewing beef cut into bite sized chunks. It made the chili that much hartier, and I like the texture of cut beef as well as the ground. A great recipe for winter games or movie night with a crowd, cause it's even better done a day ahead and re heated.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
WOW! I read all the reviews and had to try for myself. I used the orange juice as suggested, and regrigerated the dough for a couple hours, and had no problem handling the dough as directed. It's true that even people who turn their nose up at ginger love these. This time I made them smaller (like a teaspoon) and they baked in 9 minutes.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
An excellent way to use up over ripe bananas when you've had enough of muffins! I was concerned that the batter was creamier than most cookie batters, but they baked up well. Second batch was more firm I guess because oatmeal absorbed more batter. Just a caution, tho, the clove comes through clearly in the finished cookie, so if you are not a fan, omit it.

Orange Cranberry Biscotti

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
Delightful! I used 1/2 grand marnier and 1/2 o.j, and also cut the cinnamon in half. Next time I'll go full grand marnier and cut the cinnamon completely for a fresher, fruitier taste. I also had to bake logs an extra few minutes to get really firm for a drier, crunchier finished product. The finer dice for berries and nuts makes the logs cut much neater, however, I really like the texture more with whole nuts. Flavor is great and all in all a great recipe - just like the coffee shop! Especially pretty dressed up with white chocolate. Great gift from the kitchen

Michelle's Soft Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
I was searching for a dependable recipe to use as a give away at a wedding shower I hosted. I read all the reviews (as always) and used this recipe to make heart shape cut out which I decorated with royal icing in the wedding colors. On one cookie I put bride and groom's names, on another the wedding date. After the icing firmed I put them back to back in a little cellophane bag and tied with ribbon to match. They looked lovely in a basket by the door, and the bride gave a bag to each guest as they left. Cheap and Cheerful! Thats the ticket!

Almond Squares II

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
I made this to use up left over almond paste from another recipe. It was simple and yummy. I lined my pan with parchment paper, 2 inches above the rim to make handles. Then I remove the whole bar when cool and cut on a board. I also drizzled melted chocolate over for the holidays. Seems to freeze well, too.

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
Excellent! I did add the 1/2 teaspoon of powder as suggested in other reviews. I made a double batch and after I poured into pans I added nuts to 1, dried blueberries to another, choc chips to the 3rd and made the 4th plain. I freeze them whole, then when someone pops over I slice some from each (which is so easy when frozen). It makes a pretty plate with all the different add ins and there is something for every taste! They freeze beautifully!

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
Made this for the 2nd time recently. The name is perfect - my husband is Italian, and this is completely different from my mother in law's lasagna, but heartier and every bit as good in it own respect. It froze well, too. I just omitted the top layer of cheese and cooked the one for the freezer 1/2 the recomended time. (A trick from the mother in law which keeps it from being watery upon 2nd baking). I then cooked it from frozen, adding that top layer of cheese for the last 1/2 hr.

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2005
These are the answer! A yummy, moist breakfast muffin that fills the need for fibre. I gave these to a few people who desperately needed to "make fibre their friend", if you know what I mean, and this did the trick for all of them, my husband included.

Orange Almond Biscotti I

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
I was a bit disapointed. The dough was so dry, when mixing, I had to add a third egg. (All my other biscotti recipes with the same amount of dry ingreds call for 3 eggs) By then, it was a little late for the extra egg and my biscotti were quite heavy textured. The orange was a nice flovour, though.
