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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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. :)

Great recipe. I use white sugar instead of brown and I didn't add the nutmeg.

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.

Tortellini Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
Try this and be surprised how much you like it! I too doubted the idea of ketchup in soup so only used 1/4 cup of it and made up the rest by using a small can of tomato paste. I cooked up 5 spicy Italian sausages and aside from the onion, carrots and celery I used a package of 'Europe's Best' Mediterranean Diced Delite that included zucchini, eggplant, red/yellow/green onions, mushrooms and tomato. I used up some frozen tortellini that I had on hand. To make it a true Minestrone I tossed in a few handfuls of red and white beans. I even froze some for later.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
An excellent, healthy soup. I cut the butter in half and added parsley, cumin and Maggi seasoning. Pureed with hand blender but left some bigger pieces. Topped it all off with grated cheese and bacon.

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
The five stars is for the topping and filling, I DID NOT make the brownie from this recipe. It could even had been a bit more mintier for my liking but I will be using this recipe again.

Farmhouse Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
Following the recipe will only get you 2 1/2 stars. For the full 5 stars make your own dressing and use cream of chicken soup. Toss in some sage when you are cooking your chicken and add a little chicken oxo to boost the flavour.

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Incredibly sweet and in the words of my father-in-law, "sinful". My brownie layer was a little gooey but that didn't seem to bother anyone but me since I had to try and serve it. I did increase the cheesecake layer and used sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Everyone enjoyed these when I took them to a family dinner. Small squares are best because these are really rich.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2009
I didn't think this would be liked that much by my family but made it to help with my Grandma's liver cancer. Everyone enjoyed it! I threw in some carrots, celery and the tomato juice. I also added extra garlic and cayenne pepper.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
These were a big hit with all the people I shared them with. They stay chewy and the spices are just right.

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.

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
So easy and yet so delicious! Made it for the first time and served it to company...they loved it. The taste of apple pie without any fuss. Added more cinnamon then called for and next time (oh, there will be a next time) I might add some nutmeg. Served fresh from the oven over French vanilla ice cream.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
Very moist banana bread and full of flavour. Followed the advice of other reviewers and used lemon juice, baking powder AND baking soda. I mashed 1 cup of bananas. Kids loved it!

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I'm rating this a five for when I used all fresh vegetables. I have made it following the recipe and it is not nearly as good. The canned vegetables turn to mush and it wasn't as flavourful. My suggestions: use all fresh vegetables, add poultry seasoning, thyme, parsley and concentrated chicken oxo. Add about 2 tbsp flour to soup mixture to help thicken. I'm confident enough with these changes to serve this to company.
