Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This recipe was fabulous. I'd never made a ham before so I was hoping for the best and it was. If I can avoid using my oven I do so I put the ham in a foil tray and put it on the BBQ for the same time and temp. I also added the glaze from the beginning and basted every so often. I also added 1 1/2 cups of water to the pan but next time I think I'll add 2. Turned out moist and the glaze was perfect.

Cranberry Oat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
OMG!! I make bread at least once a week and this bread is by far thee best one yet!! Soo delicious! Perfect texture, colour, not too dense nor too doughy! Mmm! A few alterations were 1tsp of cinnamon and brown sugar instead of honey (as suggested), I didn't have active yeast so I substituted with 1 1/4 and a smidge of instant yeast. I also subed shortening for the butter. Coarsely ground the oats. Added 1/2 cup of cranberries (crasins), 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup of unsalted sunflower seeds. At first when I added these in after the first rise, I didn't think they'd mix in but eventually they did. Thank you for an excellent loaf of bread! Thankfully the kids don't like nuts and crasins so its all for me and my hubby! :)

Scallop and Shrimp Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
It had potential but really no taste. I think if it was marninated it would at least hold the taste but this was more of a dipping sauce.

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
WOW! This is truly a sensational soup! I had left over ham with the bone in the freezer and have always wanted to try a bean soup and I'm glad I chose this one! The recipe is really easy to follow. I soaked my beans over night and washed them in baking soda before cooking them. I added 8 cups of water with 4 cups of chicken broth. I also added 3 potatoes and finely chopped the onions and the celery because the kids will eat them only if they can't really see them. Having soaked the beans overnight, they cooked quicker so next time I won't cook for so long. I pureed the potatoes to make the soup a little thicker and added my carrots towards the end because I don't like them mushy. I also added about a tablespoon of pureed jalapenos for a little kick. No ketchup or other spices needed for me! Served with a crusty Italian bread and delish!

The Best Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Delicious! Would absolutely make again! I followed the advice to cut the sugar and I added chopped walnuts with only 2 cups of mini semi sweet chocolate chips and they turned out great! I also used shortening instead of butter. They were soft and stayed soft for as long as they lasted (about 2 weeks). I use stoneware so no need to grease my pan and they kept their shape. Speaking of shape, I spooned them onto the pan instead of rolling. To me this makes a more "homemade" looking cookie. I also put the mix in the fridge between pans to keep the mix firm. I even doubled the recipe and it still worked out!

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
I had really high hopes with this recipe and it bombed...for me. It could have been that I doubled the recipe...or that I only had margarine available and not butter...they turned out almost flat (without greasing the pan, I use stoneware) and were dry and brittle. I had put the mixture in the freezer prior to rolling them into balls but the mix just seemed to stick to my hands.
