Homemade Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
This is a great base for a granola recipe. I left out the sunflower and sesame seeds along with the raisin and wheat germ because I didn't have any. But I did add in 1/4 cup of flax seeds and an extra 1/2 cup of oats. Turned out very good, can really smell and taste the peanut butter in them. When pressing mixture into pan make sure you really press firmly that way when you turn them out they won't crumble.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
A great cookie for when your in the mood for a nice light treat with a cup of tea. Not an overly sweet cookie so it really allows the lime flavour to shine. Served mine without the glaze to save on calories ;) Would recommend using icing sugar to make the glaze with because it will disolved better than the granulated sugar will and also wait until the cookies are almost completely cooled before you glaze.

Honey Nut Granola

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2007
This granola is the absolute best I have ever had!!! I will NEVER buy it from a grocery store again, so easy to make and turns out absolutely delicious. I added in some wheat germ, flax seeds and used a locally produced wildflower honey. I would definitely suggest for people to bake the granola on either a sheet of parchment or in a non-stick oven roaster, that way you'll have no problems and won't have to scrape it off baking sheets!!!

Copper Carrots

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
Great recipe for carrots and even my picky nephew would eat these!! I used brown sugar to give a more caramel flavour and also used fresh squeezed orange juice as well as the zest from the orange to pick up the flavour just a bit more.

Baked Pita Triangles

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I used a 'Greek' style pita which is pocketless and they turned out great!! I also baked them on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet and when they came out of the oven they were crispy on the outside; warm and soft on the inside. Served with spinach and artichoke dip. Yummy!!

Best Ever Butter Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2006
I would like to think I'm a fairly good cook but this recipe made me feel the likewise. Nothing I did could bring this mixture together!!! I even tried adding extra icing sugar, but once the mixer got turned off it all separated!!!

Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I was pretty happy with the way these turned out, just whipped them up so we would have enough food for all. I used 2 cloves of fresh garlic and smooshed it with the salt to make a paste, I also brushed the tops with butter and sprinkled with the parmesan cheese. Not as fluffy as hoped but still darn good. By the time I got to them, there was only two left!!

Warm Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
This is my new favorite way to serve corn!! Instead of red onion I used a Vidalia, also I sauted the onion until it was soft and then added in the corn. Use fresh corn for sure, it's definetly worth the hassle to remove the kernels yourself!! The dish is slightly sweet but not over powering, good either warm or cold.

Apple Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
I was pretty happy with this recipe, I'm always on a neverending hunt for the perfect coleslaw!! I salted my cabbage like a previous member suggested and it worked to keep my cabbage crispy, even till the next day!! The only thing I changed was that I used Miracle Whip instead of Mayo so I also cut down on the lemon juice. Even my super picky sister was going back for seconds!!!

Gingered Garlic Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
Pretty good recipe. I add a little red wine vinegar like the other reviewer, and also a little more ginger. Turned out great, nice change from the normal weekday blandness.

Zucchini Apple Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
This has got to be one of the best zucchini breads I've ever had. It's texture is very nice and light, not like alot of other loaves that are very dense. I didn't feel the need to peel the zucchini and I grated it instead of chopping, but I did peele and dice the apple. I also added and extra cup of apple into the mix. Didn't have any walnuts on hand but I think it defintly would have improved the recipe even more!! Going to be my go to recipe from now on!!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
I was a little nervous about making a Banana Cake because I thought it would come out too dense like bread does. I was totally wrong. It is the perfect texture for a cake, the only things I did differently was that I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract and eliminated the walnuts in the batter. The cake turned out beatifully moist and with a light texture. I frosted it with some slightly sweetened whipped cream and then I pressed the chopped walnuts onto the sides of the cake. I took this to a baby shower and everyone said that it was absolutely delicious!!! UPDATE: Since making this back in September I've had at least 6 people calling me and asking for the recipe!!!

Peanut Butter Bars VI

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Really good and super easy to make. Next time I may add some chocolate chips or drizzle with chocolate like other reviewers said. Make sure you really squish down the mixture when putting it into your pan, that way it will hold together better.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
This bread is fantastic!!! Turns out with a slightly sweet taste that is delicious!!! The second time I made it I used half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat flour and it turned out just as good as the original recipe!!! This bread is great for making Cinnamon Raisin Bread with, just roll into a retangle sprinkle with some cinnamon and raisins, roll up and bake. So delicious, light in texture and easy to make.

Naan

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
Made this at school and used it as our 'taco' shells. Absolutely delicious!!! Dough turned out beautiful, we rolled the dough into little rounds and then flattened them. Brushed with oil, sprinkled them with kosher salt and then grilled them. Turned out spectacular!!! This is now thee only recipe I use for flat breads. I've even made BBQ pizza with this dough. Brush with oil, grill one side and when you flip it put your toppings on and cook until cheese melts!! So good!!!

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Made this recipe twice, the first time I did it exact to the recipe and the second time I substitued half of the flour with whole wheat. I really enjoyed it both times, but the whole wheat was my favorite because it gives the crust a little more of a 'hearty' flavour. I rolled two thin crust which still baked up to a nice crispy soft combo. This is our new pizza recipe, no more ordering out for us!!!

Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
This cheesecake is absolutely delicious!! It turned out perfectly for me. I left everything in the filling the same, maybe a little extra Irish cream may have slipped in ;), but for the crust I left out the icing sugar and the cocoa powder becaue I felt it didn't need it. Also when baking I wrapped the bottom of the cake tin in heavy duty tin foil twice and set it into a large roasting pan. Once I put the pan in the oven I poured hot water around it. Thses helps the cheesecake while baking to avoid any cracks on the top. Also when the cheesecake is done just turn off the oven and crack the oven door slightly and allow it to cool completely before removing the cake.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
I doubled this recipe and was pretty happy with the end results. Didn't modify it too much, I just reduced the amount of sugar to 2 cups (for 2x the orginal recpie) and added a tbsp of vanilla. I also used walnuts instead of pecans. I found the bread to have a nice sweetness to it, so I think that the extra cup of sugar would have been too much. Next time I'm going to try and replace the oil with applesauce.
