Simple Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
I used chicken stock instead of vegetable. I added Worcestershire sauce and parsley. Pureed with my hand blender making sure to leave a few larger pieces for texture.

Highland Toffee

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
I really enjoyed these but hubby wasn't too fussy on them (thought they tasted like they weren't cooked enough). I used butter, not oil, and omitted the nuts. Placed greased tinfoil in my pan and that made a world of difference. Before they finished cooking I sprinkled some chocolate chips on top and stuck it back in the oven. When the timer went off I used a butter knife to spread the chocolate out. Threw the whole pan in the freezer for an hour. Took them out and used a greased, sharp knife to cut into bars and then threw them back in the freezer. I'm leaving them in there and just grabbing one out when I want it.

Slow Cooker Tender and Yummy Round Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
I have now been using this recipe for over a year and each time I get great results. I add parsley, beef oxo, bay leaf and some vermouth (instead of all the water, it helps tenderize the meat). I have made this for company and family and all have enjoyed it.

French Toast II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
Great recipe. I use white sugar instead of brown and I didn't add the nutmeg.

Baked Swiss Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Followed the recipe and then took the suggestion of other reviewers and added: cayenne pepper, paprika, green pepper, beef stock and more worcestershire sauce. Still lacked a little something but the meat was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Served over rice.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
Found them a little too lemony, but if you are a fan of lemon then try them. They are incredibly easy to make and take almost no time at all.

Skillet Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
A handy little recipe to make up on short notice. I used fresh green beans opposed to canned or frozen. Next time I think I will add the bacon bits as suggested by another reviewer.

Gelatin Spritz Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Only two stars because as easy as these cookies are to make they lack a lot of flavour. I used a whole box of strawberry gelatin, plus 1/4 tsp strawberry extract and then rolled them in more strawberry gelatin before baking and they still lacked the intense flavour I was looking for. I don't own a fancy cookie press so I refrigerated my dough, rolled in balls (tossed in gelatin) and flattened with a plate. Don't cook for more than 7 minutes or else they get to brown and hard.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
A great recipe to just have fun with. Add an extra tsp of vanilla and use room temperature butter, but other than that no changes are needed. Roll the dough in flavored sugar, crushed candy canes, sprinkles or be unoriginal and use plain old sugar. :)

Candy Cane Cocoa

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I haven't made it exactly like this recipe but I love the idea and the taste of a mint hot chocolate with whipped cream and candy canes to top it off. I will actually make this at some point but for the time being I will cheat with instant. :)

Baklava

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I found this needed a bit more liquid to it, it was a tad dry. Funny story: When I made it I had also done up a huge dinner where the leftovers took over my fridge so I covered the Baklava in saran wrap and stuck it in the stove so that nobody got into it. Next day I turned on the oven to preheat it for cookies and TOTALLY forgot about the saran covered Baklava resting inside. Needless to say it got tossed and now I ALWAYS check my stove before I preheat.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Nice chewy little treat but needed just a bit more coconut flavour. Next time I would add 1/4 - 1/2 tsp of coconut extract and maybe drizzle in milk chocolate.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I had never had or heard of a "Snickerdoole" until I came across this recipe. So, not knowing what it is supposed to turn out like I have to say that this is a great recipe that produces a soft, sugary (but not too sweet) cookie. Easy to make and a nice finished product. Have all your ingredients at room temperature.

Almond Cream-Puff Ring

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Made this for the first time tonight for company and they thought I fussed. Turned out great and tasted even better than it looked. It didn't hold together in the ring but that really doesn't matter. Next time I might pump the pastry through a tube into small shapes. There were NO complaints with this.

Beef Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Excellent pot pie. I used a can of Campbell Beef Vegetable soup and liquid beef oxo. Thickened it with flour and it turned out fantastic. Added about 1 tbsp parsley and 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper. This will make it in to my regular rotation.

Dirty Bedtime Story

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Used chocolate milk instead of white milk as another reviewer had suggested. What a great little drink. I will be making this and consuming this again! :)

Authentic French Meringues

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I'm rating these a five because it is a great meringue recipe...if you like meringues. I only tried this recipe to use up egg whites that I had left over from making crepes in the morning. They turned out nice and shiny and everything you would want in a meringue, again...if you like meringues. *I broke up some of them with the flat side of a meat mallet and used them to top hot chocolate.

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
I adjusted this recipe to use up leftover mashed potatoes I had in the fridge. I added sour cream, onion powder, crisp bacon pieces and grated cheese my taters. Placed the new mixture in a casserole dish and topped with more bacon (can't go wrong with bacon) and more grated cheese. Cooked at 350' for 10 minutes and then broiled until browned and bubbly. I would do this again but leave the skins on my potatoes for a baked potato casserole, a little easier than stuffing skins.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
These are just missing a little something. I used white chocolate pudding mix, added more vanilla and extra milk chocolate chips but omitted the nuts. I also chilled the dough before baking. After 9 minutes in the oven they were cooked. The kids enjoyed them and they do stay plump and soft.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Followed the advice of other reviewers and added 1/4 cup extra flour. These didn't look cooked when I first took them out but then they hardened up a little once they cooled. Used strawberry jam and turned out great!
