Roasted Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2014
This would be a pretty good recipe if you were going for gluten free and lactose free, but I thought it needed a roux (so I added one). I also kicked it up by adding a half teaspoon of chili flakes with the basil and sprinkled swiss cheese on top. My son thought it was too sweet still, but I like it.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
Quick, easy, nutritious and cheap. Everything a busy working, hockey momma needs. I did not have fresh ginger so I had to sub about 1/4 tsp ground, otherwise it was great!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2014
I loved this soup!I cut back on the parsley a bit and next time I might try cutting back on the dill just a smidge too. The main reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the servings are off. There is no way this makes 6 servings. I would say 3 to 4 servings tops. I am craving it now!

Creamy Dill Dip II

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
a very easy and versatile dip. My husband enjoyed it on veggies, chips and baked potato. You do need to add more dill though. I think I'll try plain greek yogurt instead of the sour cream next time and a smidge less cream cheese since greek yogurt is thicker. It will be healthier that way an probably equally delicious.

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
Easy and yummy recipe. I would have given it 5 stars but I made 30 cookies yesterday (I guess I made mine smaller) and there are still 4 in the container that my 3 boys have not eaten yet, so they are not 5 star worthy. I did substitute 1/2 cup of mini m & m's for the chips and I think next time I will try a smidge less white sugar. They are sweet! Good with a cup of coffee though.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
I give it 2 stars for being healthy and economical to make, but it was sooo bland! I even added broth instead of water. However i did have to add water to keep it from burning and getting completely dry. And it took forever to cook. I should've made lentil soup. I am not vegan but I don't eat pork or other meats so I would sure love to find a good split pea recipe. This one just did not do it for me. Revision-(I edited my review and added a star, since my younger son ate 2 bowls as a snack after baseball.

Cream of Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2012
I used 2 tbsp butter and 2 of olive oil instead of margarine, only 1/2 cup of cream and vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. It was good though. Even my picky 7-year old carnivore didn't mind eating it. I think you could leave out the cream entirely if you wanted it to be lactose free.

Hot Italian Giardiniera

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
This will be a staple in my house I'm sure. I keep telling my husband that it's not even ready yet (but I have secretly eaten half already).

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
I used a little more oil to shallow fry them, but they were delish! Even got a thumb sideways from my picky 13 year old (which is like 2 thumbs up for anything made out of vegetables). The only problem was that I ate too many!

KELLOGG'S* RICE KRISPIES* White Chocolate Cranberry Crisp Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
It was just ok. A cinch to make but I actually prefer the plain old rice krispie squares, and I am someone who likes a lot of flavour.

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This was ok. I served it when i had last minute company and everyone seemed to eat it, some people had seconds, but nobody really complimented it. I will make it again for my husband and son because one of my sons ate it well and it was super easy. (I am a vegetarian myself and prefer not to handle the meat too much, which is why I chose this one...no searing required)

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
simple to make with ingredients you almost always have on hand. I added an extra banana because I had 4 over-ripe ones and it was moist and delicious. My 5 year old son helped make them...so easy. Oh, I also made 12, not 10...they would've been too big.

Cherry Snowballs

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
I made these much smaller then the recipe called for and the batch made 32, next time I will make them even smaller. My husband thought they were too messy for 2 or 3 bites and I should try to make them bite size. I agree, will try. Plus, I think they will have more flavour if they are smaller because you would taste the cherry with each bite. I divided my batch into 3; made 1 plain, 1 pecan and 1 with chopped up white chocolate chips. The husband and kids liked the chocolate ones best and I liked the pecan ones, except you cannot send them to a "nut-free" school :( Definately alot of work, but look so nice on a cookie tray it is worth it. I also tried adding cherry juice to the coconut and/or icing for differentiate between the different flavours. The plain white ones looked the nicest.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
I made this recipe to the letter and it turned out very dry. I gave it three stars because my oldest son didn't mind them (but he has a pretty hearty appetite these days).

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
A little bland for my liking but the kids actually tried it and cleaned their plates and agreed to take some leftovers in their school lunch. I used coconut milk instead of cream, because I thought it would give it a nicer flavour. I think next time I will use canned tomatoes instead of soup...there is something I don't like about cooking with canned soup. I will make it again though.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
So simple and delicious! Even my 5 year old and 11 year old sons loved it. I can see my husband actually asking me to make this again...and I will.

Spinach and Mushroom Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
The dough was hard to work with. I added more fresh garlic for flavour. I liked the fact that I could toss one roll in the freezer for another potluck a week later. They were well received.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
For lack of ingrediants I had to change things a little bit. I used chipotle chili powder instead of jalapenos, which I think just gave it a different flavour, not necessarily better or worse. I added a bit of shredded cheddar. My hubby liked them. I had extra filling so I spread it out on tortillas and made pinwheels the next day. (roll, slice, then bake at 375 C for 10 mins)

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I made a few subs. I used 1/2 brown sugar 1/2 white, 1/2 brown flour and 1/2 white and I didn't have any nutmeg so I added 1/4 tsp ground cloves and 1/2 tsp ginger. My son's friend said they were the best cookies he's ever had (although, they are quite possibly the only fresh out of the oven cookies he has ever been served) and his other friend gobbled up 4 in the blink of an eye.
