Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Pretty yummy, and super garlicky! I multipled this recipe by 4 to make enough for TWENTY (20) servings for Christmas dinner. I used 2 kg of frozen French green beans, and about 4 whole heads of garlic (I chopped 5, but about 4 was definitely enough, and my family is no stranger to garlic!). I also cut down on the olive oil, and used only 1/2 a cup instead of 3/4. Really simple, really easy, really delicious. I'll definitely make it again for myself (in much smaller portions!) Thanks!

Orange Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Although I received several compliments for these at a cookie exchange, I felt they were very bland. :( They puffed up alot with baking and were very airy, even after the dough was rolled out to 1/4 inch thickness. Next time I will double the orange zest, maybe substitute half of the shortening for butter, and roll out the dough as thin as possible! Icing was definitely a good addition to these. :)

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Although this recipe is incredibly simple, and easy to make, it was so good... it's like comfort food, I was really surprised at how delicious just a few ingredients can be! I will definitely be making it again, and probably try some different variations in terms of the vegetables! Thanks :)

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
Good! I never cook, but this was easy, the ingredients were cheap, it's full of flavour, and it's filling. I used brown rice instead of quinoa (which I couldn't find in my local grocery store). I also used only 1 can of black beans, and did not use cayenne pepper. Thanks!

Deep Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
For the cake batter, I used only 4 squares of unsweetened chocolate, and 8 squares of semi-sweet chocolate, because I was worried it would taste too bitter otherwise. It turned out great! The perfect balance of "dark" and sweet flavour. The layers were a little delicate when I took them out of their pans after they cooled, and the top layer cracked in 3 places (which was covered-up with the berries after it was iced!) The icing was still runny after being left at room temperature for about an hour, so it dripped down the sides of the cake a bit. But after refrigeration, it still looked pretty and smoothed out on top, despite the messy edges. I used canned raspberry pie filling (E.D. Smith) between the cake layers, and decorated the top with fresh rasperries, blackberries, and white chocolate (Baker's). It was a huge hit! Everyone loved it. :)

Strawberries and Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
This cake took alot longer to make than I expected - i.e. practically all day! The pink strawberry cake mix was VERY moist and filled only 2 nine-inch cake pans. To make it 3 layers, I made the centre layer from a store-bought chocolate cake mix. I decorated that top with sliced strawberries and chocolate shavings (see photos of this recipe). I think that a filling other than whipped cream would work better - the whipped cream seems too light and is somewhat absorbed by the cake - a stickier vanilla icing might be better. All the trouble was worth it - it got rave reviews at a family birthday party!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
YUMMY! Loads of flavour - you'll love this! I imagine the same recipe would be good with other types of fish too.

Baked Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Sooo delicious! If you love seafood and you love cheese, you will love this recipe. Expensive to make, but simple and easy - makes a TON so make room in the fridge for leftovers (or make this for a bigger group of people) It doesn't look attractive (cheesy, seafoody mess) but the taste makes up for it. Made this for my mom last year for her birthday (she's a seafood lover) and she liked it so much, she made it for me for MY birthday! (Lucky me!)

Tortilla Rollups II

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Everybody loved these! I used green tortillas instead for more contrast. I was planning for a larger group so I doubled the recipe (bought 20 10-inch tortillas)... but the doubled mixture only filled 8 tortillas! It made 70 individual pieces altogether. Maybe I used too much filling per torilla... but if you follow it exactly, you may need fewer than the suggested 10 tortillas (maybe only 4 or 5 to make approximately 35 pieces) Very yummy but could use a little more "kick" of some kind. :)
