JIF® Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
Made these a week ago and there are still lots left in the cookie jar. Used plain Crisco as didn't have butter flavoured, but found them heavy and dense. They stayed chewy, but I personally like crispy cookies.. oh well, back to the drawing board.

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Added glace ginger, candied ginger, ground ginger and.... the zest of a lemon... oh my gosh are these ever good... not if you don't like ginger though... or shouldn't that go without saying?? They are super easy to make and I've rolled them into logs in wax paper and am leaving them in fridge for baking on demand. *****

A Drama Queen's Pavlova

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
In response to using a pan: you should use a cookie sheet, the pavlova is free standing as it bakes, hence drawing a 9" circle on parchment. You can also sprinkle cold water on a cookie sheet and pile the egg white mix and form into a 9" round... then bake at 300 f for 1 hour and continue as per instructions. I think the unsweetened cream is a must or very lightly sweetened or just add some pure vanilla extract about 1/2 tsp. Mmmm so delicious. I am actually presently baking 2 in the oven, but used the more simple recipe that gets lower ratings, but am baking it at 300 f. I used 5 egg whites to serve 12.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Easy peasy and oh so good. Added extra water as per suggestions. Extra vanilla too and threw in chopped fresh mcintosh apples and made it in a flan pan so put walnuts, raisins and dried cranberries on top then sprinkled with icing sugar... the reviews were GREAT! and we usually throw away cake as we're not really cake eaters.

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Delicious, added toasted slivered almonds and walnuts then made it again two days later since we ate it all and added the nuts plus some dried cranberries......it is quite delicious. Oh and to be healthy I added 1/3 cup of apple sauce instead of butter or oil......oh so good!

Pan-Poached Alaskan Salmon Piccata

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
Good healthy dish. I think I added too many capers, would go easy on them next time. I looked to see if anyone had added any fresh dill and couldn't see any results. I decided not to add any .. this time. Think I will next time instead of the fresh parsley. I liked this, but well, maybe it was the salmon I used, but I wasn't crazy about it. It is however an incredibly easy recipe and results are good.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I always hesitate to make pot pies as they're too much work. This is really easy, I had cooked an extra chicken (in the oven) a couple of days ago, deboned it, and followed the recipe. I actually doubled it as I also cooked a package of thighs in the oven today. Chopped it all up, cooked the veggies in micro and some in pot, mixed chicken and vegs all together in a big bowl and made 1 huge, family size pie and one that fed four of us (adults) with a salad on the side. I must admit, I tweaked it with some patak's mild curry and a little powder curry, hadn't read any reviews so just did my own thing. I was delicious and we're looking forward to the big one I froze. Oh and I used a puff pastry (ready made) frozen one, rolled thin and it puffs up :) didn't make a base, just put it on top...

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2009
4* - so easy to make, just have to have ingredients on hand. We were missing bbq sauce, used sambal asli (asian hot sauce) instead along with apricot jam (heated up) with cilantro, lime juice, garlic powder, fresh grated ginger. Didn't have time to let the spice sit, so just seared it straight away and it was fantastic! seared in a pan on high and then put into the oven at 350 F for 20 minutes......perfection. Served with bok choy/red onion/red pepper/celery and garlic stir fry and oven roasted/fried potatoes (as per someone's suggestion)

Foil-Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
I'm not sure how I found this, but needed a quick recipe for thighs. I added a tiny bit of rice vinegar and no sugar..no cilantro (didn't have any)no Kikkoman, used another kind. Result? my husband said, mid bite: 'what kind of chicken is this?" me: "thighs" he: "this is the BEST I've ever eaten" . He's 62 and I'm a cook....so easy it's ridiculous and no mess, baked in foil! YEAH !! try this you'll love it.

Bircher Muesli (Swiss Oatmeal)

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
Just made this and used organic whole oats (others are gmo's) greek 2% yogurt (cause that's what I have) agave syrup (healthy spoonful) currants instead of raisins, and instead of brown sugar another healthy spoonful of real maple syrup. Used 1% milk and in hindsight should have tried almond milk, which I have more of ... now have just enough for a cup of tea in the morning! while I sink my teeth into this delightful looking dish! if I remember, I'll be back to give my two cents on the tastes! (edit* just threw in some flax seed, cause they were sitting here staring at me) It's now morning....drinking a big cupof hot tea and this is fabulous! the flax adds a little je ne sais quoi ? yummmm will be making this a regular!
