Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
the only changes I made, after reading many reviews, was to add 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp of cinnamon. I did not add the extra brown sugar as suggested by others, as I didn't want to make it 'unhealthier' :). They turned out great! Very moist and flavourful. I did scale the recipe down to 6 muffins, and sprayed with pam instead of using liners. I will make this again, in a large batch, and freeze them.

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Very moist and tasty cake that goes great with company and coffee! I did make the following changes: I reduced the oil to 3/4 cup, the sugar to 1 3/4 cup, and compensated for the reduction in oil by adding extra apples: about 5 cups worth. I've made this a couple of times now with this modification and it has turned out so moist. I do not add a topping, but it is great when served with vanilla icecream.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I just ate a slice of this banana bread that I made about an hour ago. It is delicious and very moist. The only change I made was to the amount of bananas: I only had 3 which translated into about 1 1/2 cups mashed up. I topped it up by using applesauce. Other than that, i made as directed. Next time I will make a point of having the right amount of bananas and add 1 tsp or so of cinnamon for a bit more flavour. But it is so good as is, that I will have to wrap up what I have left and freeze it otherwise I may not be able to control myself!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I was drawn to this recipe b/c of the great reviews and b/c of the simplicity of the recipe. I was very disappointed with the outcome, and can’t understand why it has such a high rating. I used fresh blueberries and fresh strawberries, and I followed the directions, with the exception of reducing the butter to 2tbps. It turned out soggy/mushy in the center, but more cake like on the edges. And by the following morning, it was even more of a mushy mess. The taste wasn’t horrible, but certainly does not warrant making it again. After discovering how it turned out, I reread the recipe several times trying to figure out where I went wrong, but I followed all the directions as written. I will not be making this again.

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
My family enjoyed this recipe very much and felt like we had ordered greek take out. The chicken was delicious. I did add 2 cloves of garlic to the marinade. As well, I did not have any whole chicken breasts, so I marinated the chicken pieces, and then placed them on wooden skewers. I broiled them for about 15 mins. in my convection toaster oven. Couldn't have tasted any better. This chicken with the marinade would be great on it's own, in a salad, etc.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
After picking some fresh apples, I decided to try this recipe. This was so good and did not last long enough for seconds. I made the following changes after reading reviews 1: used frozen pie shell, and brushed it with an egg white. Bake it for 5-10 minutes, then proceeded with recipe. 2: Increased flour for pie filling to an even 1/4 cup. 3:Omitted lemon peel/zest. 4: using 'quick cooking' oats. Other than that, followed the recipe. Everyone LOVED this...I will be making it again for thanksgiving!

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Here is what I did: I sprinkled 1 tbsp chilli powder & 1 tbsp minced onion spice over 1lb uncooked chicken pieces, and let sit for a few hours. I sauté 4 cloves of garlic and 1/2 tsp cumin. Then I added 1 small onion. Next I browned the chicken pieces. and added the tomatoes, beans and corn. I let it all simmer for about 20 minutes, while I cooked some spanish rice. It was awesome served over the spanish rice, as it would have been pretty liquidy to just plop on the plate as it was. Prepared this way, I give this 5 stars. Would be good topped with green onions and cheese too.
