Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
I expected a thicker soup with the whipping cream but no one in my house wants me to make this one again.

Chanterelle Mushroom and Bacon Tartlets

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Not my favourite appetizer. I brought them to a party and no-one asked for the recipe. I will look for another use for my mushrooms next time.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
Great flavours for such a simple marinade. I added a bit of lemon pepper seasoning too. Great the next day.

Parmesan Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
This is a great loaf to incorporate lots of your favourite herbs and different cheeses. I didnt find that the parmesan or zucchini had dominant flavours. I willl try it again with shredded cheddar. I had some leftover dry dip seasoning and threw that in. As others suggested I cut the sugar to only a couple of TBSP and used olive oil in place of butter. **Dont peel the zucchini..it adds nice colour**

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2012
Im always looking for recipes to use up my over-ripe bananas and this was a hit! I added cinnamon to kick it up a notch. Will make again for sure.

Raspberry-Coconut Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
I could not get the coconut topping to set. It seemed to be runny at the end of the baking time, so I baked about 10 minutes longer - still runny topping. It tasted good but couldnt serve this to company. I would use egg whites beaten till soft peaks next time. 1/3 cup preserves is not enough for a 9 inch pan!

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
These taste just like Twix chocolate bars. Yum. I followed others' suggestions of doubling ingredients (except the chocolate chips on top - it doesnt need it) and the freezing, chilling etc. They turned out perfect. I couldnt just stop eating them. Probably one of the best squares I've made.

My Mom's Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Delish! I had no problem getting the coating to stick. I used chicken breast and pounded to the same thickness for even baking. The butter makes the breading crunchy, but the wine is not necessary - it made the bottom soggy. I will leave that out of the recipe next time and skip the salt. The cheese gave it enough saltiness.

Orange Pecan Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
Very light and tasty. I will add orange extract next time for a more intense flavour.

Pistachio Crusted Chicken Breasts with Sun-Dried Cherry and Orange Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I could not tell there was pistachio in my coating - maybe I chopped it too fine. Breading stayed on the chicken and looke nice. I had my pan too hot on the first side of the chicken, it got quite dark very fast. The sauce really makes this a stand-out dish. I had leftover cranberry chutney which I heated with a bit of red wine and poured over top. Worthy of a dish for company next time!

Holly's Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2011
I will have to try it again as written. I didnt have cornflakes so I used bread crumbs - a mistake as they were quite mushy. Mine took longer to cook than stated. Sauce was ok. Worth another attempt.

Potato Logs

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I used cooked, cold potatoes and had no problem with them keeping their shape. I also added about 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and cooked in bacon drippings instead of oil. Yummy.

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Very tasty. I cut way back on the maple syrup. 1/2 cup will make a thick enough glaze. I seared the meat first and basted throughout the cooking and put apples around the roast then thickened up the pan juices to make an apple gravy..mmmmm...

Peach and Cream Cheese Torte

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
The amount of dough was perfect for my smallest pie plate to cover only the bottom and a bit up the side. It was very creamy and tasty, much like something from a European bakery. Would be nice with plums or apples too.

Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
Got the full 20 out of this batch. Made the dough without machine. I used 3 cloves fresh garlic and sprinkled extra parmesean on top after brushing with butter. Very tasty.

Zucchini-Coconut Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
My new favourite zucchini recipe! The glaze makes a special touch. I left out the dates, but this would be great with carrotts if zucchini are not in season. Will make again and again....

Pavlova

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
I thought the meringue would be crispy but it had the texture of a marshmallow on the inside. I followed directions exactly. It cracked around th edges and didnt look so nice, but the guests liked it. To make superfine sugar - put regular white sugar in your food processor or blender for 1 - 2 minutes.

Honey-Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
Start with 1/4 cup mustard, then adjust from there. It was a little overpowering mustard taste as written. I added a big squirt of honey to compensate. Will surely make again with a little less mustard. I did used the grainy kind and dijon (instead of yellow mustad) so perhaps that is the reason for the stronger flavour.

Cranberry Mango Bread

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Not very thrilling. I used 2 mangos as suggested and waited for flavours to blend the second day. Maybe mangos are one of the fruits that dont lend themselves to baked goods. I doubt that I will make this again...
