The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: May 21, 2015
This is good for a weeknight dinner as it comes together fast. I seasoned the chicken with black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, basil and oregano then seared for a couple minutes on each side. I then proceeded with the sauce, parmesan cheese, Italian cheese blend and croutons, I covered with foil so the croutons would not be rock hard. I served with vermicilli that I tossed with butter, garlic and parmesan cheese and a salad. Making it in the one pan cut down on dishes and I think gave the chicken a nicer flavour, I am not a fan of putting raw chicken in a sauce it reminds me of the soup casseroles that I don't like either.

Browned Butter Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
very yummy! I made 3 loaves as I had 9 bananas to use up, mine baked in 50 minutes, I used baking powder for the soda as I am very sensitive to the taste, added cinnamon, the browned butter and brown sugar add a nice taste.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2015
I used the homemade baking mix recipe from this site for the baking mix, I didn't have milk powder for the mix part so I used milk instead of water, the batter was very dry I added extra milk, I halved the recipe and got 8 large biscuits with my #50 scoop, baked in 15 minutes on parchment lined sheets, used 2 tbsps butter for brushing, omitted salt and used Italian Seasoning for the parsley. Family loved them.

Homemade Baking Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2015
Made this for a recipe that required baking mix which I didn't have, scaled to 5 servings for the 2 cups I needed. Didn't have milk powder so I used milk in the recipe instead of water. Omitted salt since I am on a low sodium diet.

Mom's Rhubarb Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
We love rhubarb crisp and this was a good recipe for us. I reduced the sugar to 2 tbsps in the fruit filling, not 1/2 cup, omitted the water and used 2 tbsps flour not 1 tbsp as I used frozen rhubarb that I had thawed and drained. Baked in 45 minutes in my oven. Thanks for sharing.

Grandma Donna's Rhubarb Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
We really enjoyed the addition of strawberries to rhubarb crisp. I only used 2 tbsps of sugar not 1 cup for the fruit filling, it was plenty sweet for us. I also substituted cinnamon for the allspice as I didn't have any. Baking time was 45 minutes in my oven. Thanks for sharing your Grandma Donna's recipe!

Not Your Average Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2015
I made this recipe for the Allrecipes Allstars Canada Spring Bling. I think the seasoning amounts need to checked, I used 1/2 tbsp of basil and parsley and kept everything else the same, except using fresh minced garlic instead of garlic salt. The basil taste was quite strong and I would reduce it more. I made 8 patties, 10 would be really small.

Very Berry Rhubarb Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2015
yummy! made me wish for summer! I halved the recipe for a 9x9 pan, I used frozen fruit that I defrosted and drained, baking times were spot on for my oven. I halved the sugar to 2 tbsps in crust, 1/2 cup in fruit filling and 2 tbsps in topping and it was plenty sweet for us. Served with vanilla ice cream, cut into 9 largish pieces.

Pot Roast Dips

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2015
I used a 3 lb blade roast and put it on low overnight for about 17 hours, very tender and tasty. I used 2 cups water and rubbed the roast with pepper, onion powder and garlic. Served on toasted buns with horseradish mayo and skipped the cheese.

Passover Unstuffed Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2015
We really liked this soup! It tasted exactly like my cabbage roll recipe. I adjusted the seasoning a bit as I was concerned about the amounts. I used 2 tbsps brown sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp vinegar, 1 tsp white sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp salt free Cajun seasoning mix. I had a can of tomato sauce that was 680 ml and I used that for the water amount as well. I was able to omit the oil as I used a non stick sauce pan. I was able to make it in a hour exactly as the shredded cabbage in the bag is fine and cooks fast. I served over rice as I make my cabbage rolls with rice and meat. Next time I would definitely double the recipe as we ate it in one sitting, I am feeding two growing boys! Thanks for a great new recipe :)

Lasagna Soup with Cheesy Yum

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
We really liked this recipe! My sons couldn't believe how much it tasted like lasagna. The cheesy yum is really tasty and adds a nice flavour. I only had 4 sausages that weighed 3/4 lb so I halved the recipe. I added a yellow pepper, used salt free chicken broth, 1 tsp dried basil as I didn't have fresh and omitted the salt. I knew there was not going to be enough liquid to cook the pasta in, I added 2 cups spaghetti sauce and 2 cups water. I had a 375 gram box of Fusilli pasta that I used which is 13 ounces approximately. I needed to add 2 more cups of water while the pasta was cooking. For future reference I liked the meat to pasta ratio with the 4 sausages and 375 g box of pasta. I would definitely add more vegetables like peppers, mushrooms and zucchini. In total I used 3 cups chicken stock, 2 cups spaghetti sauce and 4 cups water, I would probably add 1 more cup of water as it was really like a stew and I think the leftovers will be quite thick tomorrow. I feel the tbsp of tomato paste is really a waste and I would omit it and just use the spaghetti sauce instead. I really liked the flavour the fire roasted tomatoes added, I had never used them before.

Apple Cardamom Overnight Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
I made this recipe for the Allrecipes Canadian Allstars Spring Bling assignment. I made the recipe as written except I halved it for a 9x9 pan and I omitted the topping because the pecans I had in the cupboard were MIA. The batter was very wet, I had to add 3 tbsps more flour. I used 2 small red delicious apples chopped finely. Mine baked in 31 minutes. This was like a snacking cake, very light and fluffy. I found it a little too oily and sweet, when I make again I would halve the butter and sugars and then halve the topping and see how that works. I lined my pan with parchment and cut into 9 pieces. Thanks for a fast and tasty recipe!

Polish Nalesniki

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
My Oma used to make these when I was a child, it brought back very fond memories of time spent with her. I halved the recipe because I wasn't sure my sons would like it, one did and one didn't, I think it was the texture of the filling as he has texture issues. For the cream cheese I used 1/4 of an 8 ounce block, I have never seen a 3 ounce package in Canada. For the 1/2 egg yolk I took 1 tbsp egg yolk from the crepe recipe. I omitted the salt as I used salted butter and I didn't drizzle melted butter over the finished Nalesniki but served with blueberry marmalade I made. I used the Basic Crepe recipe from Allrecipes which makes 6 crepes with a 1/3 cup measure. Thanks for a delicious recipe!

Luck o' the Irish Brownie

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
I used butter for the margarine in the brownies, 24 minutes was perfect for my oven. For the middle layer I only used 3 cups icing sugar because it was too dry as it was, I used 3 drops of Peppermint oil and some Kelly green paste colouring. For the ganache I used 1/4 cup butter melted in a small bowl for 15 seconds in the microwave, then added 1/2 cup chocolate chips microwaved for 15 seconds then another 1/2 cup chocolate chips microwaved for 15 seconds, stir vigorously until the chocolate melts completely and it thickens, work quickly to spread over the top of the filling. I omitted the vanilla as it is not needed and usually seizes the chocolate. Cut into 32 squares, enjoyed by my son's hockey team for their St. Patrick's Day treat.

Chef John's Smothered Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2015
We really enjoyed this, I omitted the salt on the pork chops and used salt free chicken granules to make the broth since I am on a low sodium diet, I used a very large onion to ensure enough for everyone, served with mashed potatoes and broccoli.

Buttermilk Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2015
These were very good waffles. I added vanilla and cinnamon and I changed up the leavening to 1 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp baking soda per cup of flour and omitted the salt. I made a double batch as I was feeding 3 boys and they gobbled them up!

Carrot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2015
The Canadian Allrecipes Allstars were asked to make a pie for Pi Day. March 14, 2015 is a special pi day being 3.1415! I choose this recipe because it had no photo or reviews and I had all the ingredients. I used my food processor to slice the carrots thinly and to puree the pie mixture after the carrots were cooked. I steamed the carrots with 2 tbsps of water in the microwave instead of boiling to maintain the nutrients. I halved the milk as I was concerned it was too liquidy, omitted the salt and used 1.5 tsps of pumpkin pie spice for the spices listed. 45 minutes baking time was perfect for my oven. When my kids came home and smelled the pie, my son asked if I was making carrot cake, I think the name should be changed to Carrot Cake Pie as that is what it tastes like, there is no way anyone is going to think this is pumpkin as the texture is totally different. I served with cinnamon whipped cream. We enjoyed the pie but I don't think I would make again as the texture was odd.
