Cocktail Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
The meatballs themselves are fine, definitely very plain without sauce. We found the sauce VERY sweet and this is coming from a family that loves sweet. I had to doctor the sauce quite a bit. Will try something different next time.

Penny's Whiskey Cake

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
NOTE: I did NOT make the glaze for this cake as I had other plans for icing. The actual cake is fine, but really, it's a waste of whiskey. The batter is awesome and gives great promise of a rich, whiskey flavoured cake. However, once cooked you'd have to be a completely tee-totaller to find a whiskey taste to it. I myself am not a whiskey drinker and I could barely taste it. The whiskey drinkers in my family couldn't detect anything. I wish I had saved the whiskey to just serve along side. Save yourself the expense of the alcohol and only use the whiskey in the icing, don't waste it in the cake.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I've made this recipe many times and it's excellent. So fresh and not overdone. Pure, clean, fresh flavour. The only thing I adjust is 5 serrano peppers is WAY too much. I usually make it with 2. Once I used 3 and we could barely eat it, and we like hot. Also, you MUST remove the seeds from the peppers, and I strongly suggest wearing disposable gloves when chopping the peppers. Serrano chiles are required. Jalapenos do not give the same flavour or heat. Does not keep long. Best if consumed the day it is made.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
AMAZING! So nice to have an icing that isn't sickly sweet. Almost tastes like cheesecake filing. Will be making this again and again. My daughter, who HATES typical cake icing, loved this. I added 1 TBSPN raspberry jam and 1 tsp almond extract to one batch, and to another I added 1 tsp. lime juice. SO Good! You can change this recipe up to flavour anyway you want. Because it's not so sweet, the flavours really come through.

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Very average. Used real lemon juice. Substituted lemon juice for orange juice, and added lemon zest. Still didn't have much lemon flavour and was very fluffy. Was looking for more of a pound cake texture to this. This recipe was more cake-like.

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
Way too salty. I normally like things on the salty side, but this was too much. Would use low sodium soya sauce next time, or reduce substantially. Also will try brown sugar instead of white next time. Added fresh minced garlic, sesame oil, sesame seeds and used hot chile peppers in place of the chile paste.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Used margarine instead of shortening. Added 1 tsp lemon juice to half of crumb mixture to use as base. Used frozen blueberries (did not thaw). Did not use salt. Next time I will not add sugar to blueberry mixture as it was VERY sweet.

Birdseed Treats

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
This recipe is awesome! I followed the ingredients exactly as written, however I put it into a slightly smaller pan which I'm glad I did. You don't really taste the peanut butter alot - as my PB hating daughter can attest. Will be adding this to my recipe book. Might try adding in some pumpkin seeds too.

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This bread was pretty good. Nothing incredible, just really good, basic bread. We're having to cut costs and this recipe helps, plus homemade bread is wonderful. I mixed mine in my Kitchen Aid and it went well - though I recommend doing a minute or two of hand kneading to mix in all the little bits. Made just one loaf and a whole bunch of buns that I made in muffin tins. Next time I want to add some herbs & spices, or maybe some seeds for different tastes. But as is it makes very good sandwich bread. Also good if you make thick slices and make into garlic bread.

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
I used 3 cloves of fresh garlic instead of the powder and chili powder instead of the sauce (since I didn't have any). It was OK, but certainly not spicy by any means. It tasted fine but was very average. I'll make again, but it isn't something I'd make to impress.

Tortilla Rollups II

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
I forgot about the green onions, but they were a hit anyway. I used alot more salsa than was called for - about 1 - 1 1/2 cups. And I also added quite a bit of cilantro which gave it a very fresh taste. Used sundried tomato and spinach tortillas and it made a VERY pretty display.

Ali's Amazing Bruschetta

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
Mmmmmmm - very good. This was my first time ever making bruchetta (or having it outside of a restaurant). It was great, very fresh tasting. I added a little bit of garlic salt, but probably next time I'll add freshed minced garlic to boost flavor a bit. I had no problems with the bread going soggy. Used french bread because that was all I could get, but I don't recommend that because it didn't slice up well.

Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
This recipe was great. Made it for the first time for company so was kind of nervous but they all liked it. The meat was very tender. Will make again, and I didn't make any changes.

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
These were quite good. I only baked for 20 min - 25 would have been too long. Also I only baked for 9 min the second time (didn't turn them and bake again). They were the perfect firmness for me - could eat them without dunking but stayed together when dunked as well. Nice flavour, very gingerbready. Could use a sweet topping to finish them off - I think I'll try an icing on them (like gingerbread cookies). Were a little hard to get all mixed together, but that could have been made more difficult due to the bowl size I used - recommend a nice wide large bowl so you can really get in there.

Double Chocolate Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
Very nice! I used White Choc. Chips instead of the squares. Giving them out at a bake exchange so they're in the freezer, but will drizzle with white chocolate (or maybe even both) before giving away. I messed up the oven temp. so they came out almost burned, but apparently they taste good so I will make again properly this time :).
