Baked Denver Omelet
I needed a fast dinner and this fit the bill. I added 1/2 cup of milk since it was quite eggy and omitted the salt, used onion powder, garlic powder and salt free Cajun spice. I baked it right in my pan after I sauted the onion and pepper. Next time I would use the whole onion and pepper and maybe 12 eggs as it was not very filling for my growing son.

French Canadian Tourtiere
My son had tried frozen store bought Tourtiere and really enjoyed it so I thought we would try this. I used beef boullion for the water and reduced the salt and thyme to 1/4 tsp. I added extra garlic and salt free Cajun seasoning but we still felt it was missing something. I will keep looking for the right recipe for us.

Best Raisin Currant Butter Tarts
I would say more of 4 to 4.5 star recipe. I choose this recipe for the first Canadian Allrecipes Allstar challenge because I had all the ingredients and liked the fact the recipe did not contain corn syrup. I halved the recipe, which yielded 30 3 inch tarts. I used premade tarts shells because I needed to transport them and I find them easier. The tarts smelled awesome while baking, just like what you imagine they should smell like. The only complaint and it is a minor one, is my husband found them a little too sweet compared to my usual recipe, but he also said he could easily eat 10 because they are butter tarts after all! One recommendation I have would be to streamline the ingredients a little bit e.g. 10 tbsps milk is 2/3 cup 1 2/3 tbsps of vanilla is 5 tsps, it just felt a little awkward.
