Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
This salad is really great. MMMM! The only thing I would do differently is cook the broccoli just slightly, so it is a bit soft, but still crunchy. It was so good my boyfriend ate most of it. He would search out the containers of it in my fridge. But what I did eat of it was really good.

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto (no nuts)

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
Really great recipe. Used 3/4 tbsp. garlic and found it just right (you know that kind already minced in the jar). Deep and rich flavour. Served it over toasted baguette slices (thin) Don't really think you need to change anything. But I am curious how a little wine or balsalmic would play into it. Also wondering how it would taste with a little pine nuts. Some things to try later. But, seriously, really great recipe as is.

Fresh Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
This recipe is fabulouse. The cake is sort-of light but thick at thd same time. The baking soda adds a nice pop that accents the pineapple and syrup wonderfully. Fresh pineapple really makes this recipe. The cake was very popular when made for friends.

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Mmm...tastes like Boston Cream doughnut filling. Would be excellent on homemade Danishes. Avoid using cream vs. milk as the heavier the fat content, the more gel-esq the cream gets, but still flavourful.

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
I am from Nanaimo BC and we have Nanaimo Bars everywhere in this town. Of all of the Nanaimo Bar recipes I have tried, this recipe is the closest to what I have always known as the original Nanimo Bar recipe.

Cocoa Quickies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
Just like the cookies I used to have as a child. I like to freeze them and eat them cold. whenever I make them they don't last at all because everyone eats them so fast.

Almond Chocolate Coconut Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2006
this is now my absolute favorite cookie recipe (it often gets requested) because it is so good and also the recipe is one where i can add in different ingredients and subsitute things in and it still tastes fantastic. i love to make monster cookies by using an ice cream scoop - they will take 20 to 25 minutes to bake

Maria's Broccoli Rabe

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
Wow!! :D didn't have parmesan. Still great. Used like 3 garlic cloves. You could cut the oil down to 3 tbsp. Could be awesome with a bit of soya sauce or balsalmic vinegar thrown in after the garlic.

Oven Baked BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
I taught my man to make ribs with this recipe and he's been the rib-maker in the family for four years with this recipe. It even beats my mom's ribs. The only adjustment he's made is to subsitute half the ketchup for BBQ sauce.

Puff Pastry Salmon Bundles

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
Phenominal recipe! My boyfriend said that if five-star restaurants had a fish and chips dish on the menu, this would be just the kind of thing they would make. I'm going to put out some ideas as to how I'm going to do it next time, but honestly, this recipe is great just as it's shown here. I did notice that some of the instructions were vauge-ish. It said to reduce the sauce for ten minutes or until thickened. And I wondered, at what tempurature. Because a simmer would reduce less than a boil. Also, it didn't mention how thick the sauce should be after ten minutes. I'd say go for a thinner sauce. The sauce was very strong to taste naked, but worked very well on the pastry. I would definitely use just a medium or small lemon for zesting and 2 to 3 tsp. dill, depending on how dilly you want the sauce. I used regular chicken broth, but would use low sodium next time, and also I may look for low sodium cream cheese (if that exists). The recipe is very hardy, and I'm a light to medium eater, so next time I plan to cut the salmon into eight pieces. That way there is more size choice depending on how hungry everyone is.

The Best Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
A little spicy for my liking. I'd half the jalopinos for myself, but everyone else loved it. Firm, ripe tomatoes are a must. Delicious and fresh salsa. Corn could be added in if you like corn.

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2006
the first time i made this recipe i screwed up and put in the 1/2 cup of sugar in with the dough instead of the tablespoonfull, but it turned out great anyways. i'm a college student and for a while i had no money for grocceries so i would bake one of these every second day, sometimes i would put in cinnamon or other spices, sometimes i would eat it with jam. and i never got sick of the recipe. i even have two sitting in my freezer right now insipte of the fact that i have grocceries.

Lebanese Lemon Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Wow, beautiful light but flavourful dressing. Good with or without the pepper. I didn't have a light flavoured olive oil, so I used grapeseed oil, which I would suggest.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
This is a fantastic recipe that I use time and time again. I knew a girl who worked at East Side Mario's, and she says this recipe tastes exactly like the italian dressing they use. Everyone who tries it loves it.

Quick Chicken Zingarella

Reviewed: May 8, 2012
AWESOME! I don't know what some of the other reviewers were talking about in regards to lack of flavour. I thought the flavour was wonderful. I have made this recipe with chicken and another time with a mix of large shrimp (1.25 ilb,) and scallops (1 ilb.). I seared those seperately with a little olive oil, salt, and fresh cracked pepper and then added them in at the end. Both versions of this recipe were great. As for changes to the recipe in general besides what type of protien I used, I could not find roasted Italian cherry peppers, so I substituted an equal amount of sliced roasted red peppers and added 1/2 tsp. crushed red chili flakes. I put the flakes in with the garlic, at the beginning, to bring out their flavour. The 1/2 tsp. was just enough to say 'hey, I'm here, I'm spice, but not too much spice'. If you wanted this dish to have more kick, I'm sure you could use a whole tsp. without overpowering the other flavours. Also, the spaghetti sauce I used was President's Choice Marinara sauce. If you're not Canadian, you might not know this brand, but it's a groccery store brand of okay quality. It worked out great.

Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2008
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and everyone made sure I made them again for Christmas. I don't add the pecans or the coconut though. I just stick with the maple and it works out wonderfully. Also, I like to chunk them up (large) instead of just halves. Also, it doesn't take as long for them to boil when I do that.

Reveillon Tourtiere

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
CUT the CINNAMON and CLOVES in HALF! Just like everyone else doing reviews suggests. But otherwise, totally awesome pie. Even to receipe, it was very good, just a little after-tastey with all that cinnamon and cloves. Will make again for sure! Makes a nice hardy pie.
