Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
These are really nice and do melt in your mouth! I added 1/8 cup more icing sugar as one poster suggested, as well as 2tbsp of lemon juice to give it a gentle lemon flavour. The lemon juice also helped make the mix easier to pipe through an icing bag with star tip. Love this recipe. So simple too! Will use again!!!

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
I was disappointed. I really like kale in other recipes but I guess I'm not a big fan of kale chips. They turned out fine - the recipe was perfect for getting them dry and crispy - I just find them a bit too thin to be satisfying.

Tea Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2013
Yummy! These were simple and tasted great! I added some parmesan, garlic powder and a couple of handfuls of shredded cheddar to these and instead of cutting the dough, just formed balls that I patted down. Turned out perfectly. This was so easy I'll get my 6-year-old to help me next time.

Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
Good. Didn't rise very high, but they were tasty. I changed the proportions of milk & lemon juice to 1/2c each.

Blue Ribbon Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
This was surprisingly good! I did add extra curry powder, ginger, cayenne pepper and some cumin since my husband and I like spicy foods. I actually mixed the butter, stock & all the spices into a dish and added it to my chicken. Next time I'll try this with coconut milk (though it was great just with 5% cream).

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
Yummy! Lovely & moist. I didn't have the cloves or the nutmeg so I upped the cinnamon & allspice. I also topped with Quaker Harvest Crunch granola. I think next time I might add cranberries and either walnuts or sunflower seeds. I will be adding these to my regular muffin roster. Note: These made 18 medium sized muffins for me. And I cooked for 23 minutes.

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Very yummy! I'd add more spice though, like some of the other readers have suggested. Extra cinnamon and some allspice are a nice touch.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Yummy! My little boy and I made these with dark chocolate chips and mini marshmallows - the marshmallows were a little messy during cooking, but once cooled, the crispy bits on the outside tasted like toffee. I'll make these again for sure!

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Very tasty roast. This was my first oven roast (I normally do a pot roast in the crock pot) and it was very nice & tender. Great seasoning (rub is awesome)! I had some minor timing issues as I had a smaller roast than the recipe called for and was working with a convection oven, so next time I'll know enough to get it exactly as I want.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
Very yummy! This mix also makes good muffins (I only had one loaf pan so I made muffins with the extra). But for muffins the baking time is only 20 minutes, so take them out well before your loaf if baking together.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2011
I made this for my son's birthday cake. FANTASTIC! I used the recipe as written and the cake was extremely moist and rich. I got so many compliments (it was incredibly tasty with white buttercream icing). This is now my go-to chocolate cake recipe! For cupcakes, 20 minutes is sufficient in the oven. They turn out wonderfully too!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
This was very easy! And the best advice I've seen by far (not sure if it was on this board or another) was to colour the marshmallow mix after adding the water but BEFORE adding the confectioner's sugar. This helped me avoid getting technicolour hands and ensured a nice even colour from the beginning, reducing the kneading required to work the colour in. In my case, I split my marshmallow, water & vanilla mix 5 ways and added different colours of die to each bowl. Then I added confectioner's sugar to each bowl separately. I also kneaded in a little extra confectioner's sugar, knowing I was making figurines, so they'd harden a bit.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This is almost exactly the same as my mom's recipe (which I lost and was looking to replace). I always add tex-mex seasoning, 1 tbsp dijon mustard and a little Frank's red hot sauce to the cheese sauce to liven it up. I'll also add 2 tbsp of tomato pesto if I happen to have it around. I like to take the lid off near the end to let the breadcrumbs brown.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
Very tasty. And easy to make. I added lots of extra ginger (I like my ginger cookies spicy) and some allspice. My son can't stay away from them!!! :-)

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Delicious! I made this using half blueberries and half rhubarb and 1 cup of sugar instead of 3/4. These muffins are very much like coffee cake and would also be good made with apple pieces (yum!) or black cherries.

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
These were quite tasty. The texture is different but good. I reduced the oil to only about a tablespoon and added 1/4 cup of applesauce and some cinnamon. I also just used regular milk.

Delicious and super easy to make. My son loves to help (and eat) these muffins! (His secret ingredient is dried cranberries sprinkled on the top.)
