Maple Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Delicious! Instead of maple flavouring/syrup, I just added more cocoa. Chocolately and creamy.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2007
Fantastic! My pancake-connoisseur husband confidently declared that these are the best pancakes he has ever eaten! I didn't follow the directions of the recipe exactly but took the advice of some viewers - I let the egg come to room temperature, I slightly heated up the milk, made sure the butter was completely melted, added 1/2 tsp. vanilla, cut down the salt to 1/4 tsp., doubled the sugar to 2 tbsp., cut the baking powder down to 2 tsps, used 1/4 cup butter, mixed dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, and whisked together but was cautious not to overmix. I also let the batter sit for 10 minutes before cooking. I used a non-stick griddle at 350F to cook the pancakes. The batter is quite thick/sticky but don't be discouraged... they taste amazing. The days of pancakes from a box are long gone! Thanks for the wonderful recipe that has encouraged so much tweaking. With the above recommended changes, you won't be disappointed!

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
Very flavourful potatoes. I cut the recipe in half and they still turned out beautifully. Next time I make these, I think I will cut the vinegar back a bit. I absolutely love balsamic vinegar but think that presentation might be improved (the colour that a previous poster mentioned) without sacrificing the flavour. Thanks for the recipe.

A great summer BBQ recipe! I made the recipe exactly as wrritten, used pork tenderloin, and marinated the meat for 5 hours. Pork was very tender and tasty. Thanks for the recipe.

Sweet Pepper Rice

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
My husband and I thought that this was an OK side dish. Positives were that it was very easy and taste was pleasant. Overall, however, it wasn't a particularly 'memorable' side dish. I diced the peppers quite small and found that after 15 minutes of simmering, they were a little too soft. I will make this recipe again but next time I will add the peppers later and only let them simmer for 8 minutes or so. I think this will give the dish a better and fresher texture. Thanks.

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
This recipe is delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and used boneless chicken thighs, marinated the chicken for about 7 hours. The chicken was very tasty and very moist. I will definitely be making this recipe again. Thanks!

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
These turned out beautifully! The taste is fantastic and the presentation is great! I followed the directions of previous posters and only used 1/2 cup butter. I also added an extra 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon. I used flaked filberts. I also took one of the recommendations of the previous posters and sprinkled some cinnamon-sugar on top during the first bake. The smell was absolutely amazing! I plan to dip the ends in milk chocolate and give them as a gift with the double chocolate biscotti (also from all recipes) that I made yesterday). Thanks for the great recipe!

Double Chocolate Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
Delicious! I made these for a gift and they turned out beautifully... nice presentation and not too crumbly. Like previous posters have mentioned, be sure to let the cookies cool before cutting. I used miniture chocolate chips and regular sized white chocolate chips in lieu of the chopped white chocolate squares. Thanks for the recipe.

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2006
Excellent cobbler recipe! I made one addition to this recipe and this was to add 1/4 tsp. cinnamon to the sugar and nutmeg that I sprinkled over the biscuit topping. I baked this cobbler in an 11x7" baking pan which worked perfectly... nothing spilled over the edge! Since I was using a bit larger pan, I also used 12 peaches instead of 9. Thanks for the recipe.

Thai Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
The first time I made this recipe I thought that the flavour was rather bland. The recipe needed a lot more flavour for my tastes. I have made some changes that I think add more flavour. I now really enjoy the recipe. To start, I heat about 1 tbsp. of sesame oil, 1 tbsp of minced gingeroot and 1 tbsp. of minced garlic in pan. Then I cooked chicken until no longer pink. I then added the veggies and cook for about 3 minutes. I then add coconut milk, 1 tbsp. lime juice, 2 1/2 tsp. of thai green curry paste, 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, and 1 tsp. chili powder. I also serve it with a garnish of sesame seeds or chopped cashews. The sauce is still rather thin but I still enjoy it over jasmine rice.

Strawberries in Spiced Syrup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2006
Excellent! Very simple but very tasty. The only change that I made was to double the cinnamon because I absolutely LOVE cinnamon. I also served it over vanilla ice cream with sliced fresh strawberries. Delicious! This syrup would also taste excellent over many apple desserts and would offer a tasty autumn flavour. Thanks for the recipe!

Grilled Mustard Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2006
A very nice, easy recipe. The sauce was a bit bland for my tastes so I made some additions/substitutions. Instead of using 3 tbsp of white vinegar, I used 1 1/2 tbsp white vinegar and 1 1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar. I also added 1/2 tsp. dill weed, 1 tbsp mayo and a pinch of cayenne pepper. I also substituted crack black pepper for the ground pepper. Thanks for the recipe.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I really enjoyed this recipe! It was the perfect recipe for a recent dinner party where one of the guests was on a vegan fast. I substituted margarine for butter and served the cheese on the side. I would recommend adding more vegetables - I added about 1 cup of broccoli and 1 yellow pepper. I also added a lot more basil (approximately 1 cup of chopped basil leaves). Great recipe to get you in the mood for spring and summer. Thanks!
