Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
This is a nice recipe! I don't have a bread maker so I did it this way for 2 loaves. 2 cups of warm water with 6 tbsp of honey dissolved in it. then sprinkle 2 1/4 tsp of yeast and let proof for 10 minutes. Then add 1/4 cup of oil and 1 1/2 tsp salt. Then all your flour (I used about 5 cups, half whole wheat and half white) and seeds. I also added hemp hearts which are high in omega 6 and omega 3 fats. Then I let rise in a oiled bowl for 1 hour, punch down and divide into 2 loaves then let rise again for 45 min. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. SOOO GOOD!!!

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2005
This was really great with a few minor tweaks. I looked over other greek salad recipes on this site and came up with the best dressing. Instead of 4 tsp. of lemon juice, add 3 and 1 tsp of red wine vinegar. For the salt and pepper, add 1/4 tsp of each. Also, add half a green pepper chopped, kalamata olives instead of black and it comes out amazing!

Whole Wheat Zucchini Herb Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
This bread is lovely! I don't have a bread maker so I doubled the recipe and did it this way: Add the honey to warm water and sprinkle the yeast on top. Let proof for 10 minutes then add the salt, oil, zucchini, seeds and seasoning. I added 1 1/2 tsp of dried basil and a tsp of rosemary like someone else suggested, then your flour. Let rise for 1 hour, punch down and divide into 2 loaves and let rise again in bread pans for 45 minutes. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Brush tops with olive oil after it comes out of the oven and EAT!!! 2nd batch: Doubled it again and used only 1 tsp of salt, 2 tsp of italian seasoning and 2 tbsp of sesame seeds (as well as 2 cups of grated zucchini). It rose much higher this time.

Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing

Reviewed: May 8, 2006
After reading the reviews I decided to make a few small changes and made this a 5 star recipe (well at least to me). I added 1/4 cup of cocoa powder instead of the 3T and an extra tsp of vanilla. Also I didn't have buttermilk so I added a tsp of vinegar to a cup of regular milk. The icing was very yummy even though I burnt it while boiling. I saved it by just pouring off the good stuff and not scaping the bottom of the pot. Also I only beat it for 2 min and didn't have any problems with it being too thick. SUPER DUPER and very moist!

Delicious Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
I'm usually kind of skeptical trying recipes on this site that haven't been rated but I'm very pleased to be the first one to rate this bread. I didn't have italian seasoning but used 1/4 tsp of each...sage, oregano, thyme and basil. It turned out so soft and delicious that I will certainly be making again for company.

Pocket Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2006
Pretty good! The only thing I was a little off about was that they took a while to soften up but they made great pockets and taste great! Once I had divided the dough, I kneaded each piece for another 2 minutes before rolling out and I think that may have helped them puff better.

Eggs Benedict with Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
I was really disappointed with this recipe. The egg and rye bread part was ok...a quick note, it doesn't take as long to cook the eggs as the recipe suggests...I ended up with hard boiled eggs instead of ones with a nice runny middle (I'm sure that was operator error as I should've watched them closer). The sauce though was not what I wanted at all. The taste of plain yogurt overpowered all the other ingredients. Most hollandaise sauce recipes I've seen call for butter not yogurt but I thought I'd try it anyway. It was super tart and did not suit my family's taste at all, even after adding 1/4 cup of butter. I would do this again but only with a different sauce. (I didn't add the salmon but might try next time when I try a different sauce).

Sweet and Sour Spareribs

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
These were awesome!! I did boil them first to ensure a more tender outcome but I think next time I would skip that stage and just add most of the sauce at the beginning. As long as you cover the roaster with tinfoil while it's cooking and uncover it for the last half hour, you will get super tender ribs!!!! Use the leftover sauce to baste when done. So, so GOOD!! Also, I used half white vinegar and half apple cider vinegar.

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I thought that these were great. I didn't read the reviews before making them so I didn't add any extra spices to the batter. They were ok coming out of the oven but the next day they were super good and moist. Also, you only need to make half the topping cause even after I generously topped my 15 muffins, I still had lots left over!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
I find it strange that I am going against over 1200 people's opinions but this was quite possibly the worst lasagna I have ever had! It was dry, had a funny taste and was truly a waste of time and ingredients. No one out of my family of six liked this in the least! I guess though that when u have a lasagna recipe that you've grown up with as I do, then different ones just don't compare.

Roast Beef Sandwich Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
This was good but a little dry. It needs some sort of sauce inside. Instead of a frozen dough I made one out of bisquick mix. 2 cups bisquick mix, 1 tsp or parsley, 1 tsp dry mustard, 1/2 cup of milk. Mix together and roll out. Place filling on it then roll up. Bake according to recipe.

Ground Beef Zucchini Skillet

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Well this recipe has potential but to me it was more like a pasta sauce than a meal in itself. I ended up adding more spices and felt it could've used a thicker tomato base. That said, I liked the addition of the zucchini and it did taste nice on the pasta that I ended up cooking to go along with it. Good start.

Peppermint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
This recipe was ok. I too added 1 tsp of peppermint extract to give it a bit more flavour but to me it just tasted like melted chocolate chips...which is ok, if you like them a lot. I gave this recipe 4 stars because my husband LOVED them but personally I just thought they were ok.

Mexican Chicken I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
Very tasty! A great way to get a high fibre meal into a very picky family! I cut back the cumin to 1 tbsp. and at the very end of baking I topped it with some mozza cheese. Will for sure be making again.

Chicken and Broccoli Stroganoff over Whole Wheat Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Yummy! Instead of microwaving the broccoli I just added it to the pan after I added the chicken broth which I used instead of wine. Another way to cut the fat in this is use half sour cream and half plain yogurt. You'll find that most people can't even tell the difference. Will make again!

Eddie's Special Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
This was super yummy!!! The only thing I did differently was to use a separate pan for the veggies and realized too late that doing it in the same pan would've given them a bit more flavour. What would make this a five star recipe for me would be to have a nice gravy type sauce to top the veggies with and also, make sure you season the hamburgers otherwise they're a little bland. I used a little onion and garlic powder but it could've used more for my tatse. Still a great dish and will be making again for sure.

Southern Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
This was great! My fav mushroom soup I've tried so far. I added 3 cups of mushrooms and rough chopped half of them and used the food processor for the rest.

Pasta Sauce with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2006
This was so good! I have been really hating ready-made sauces lately and wanted to try and make my own. This one was perfect for my family. Like another reviewer, I too added about 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and also added a full 28oz can of tomatoes. A keeper!
