Lamb Ribs with Honey and Wine

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2013
The only thing I omitted from this recipe were onion and garlic because I didn't have any and I am glad I did. I used chardonnay instead of dry wine and bottled lemon juice as well. This recipe was awesome! Now I am going to be afraid of ruining it by adding them next time...also I only had to cook my ribs for 20 minutes total for them to be done. Weird.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Honestly the best meatloaf I've ever had and my friends agreed. Just subbed in rolled oats because it's all I had and added half of a chopped onion.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
These were so close to the real thing. I do think with a bit more cheese they would be perfect, so I will add more next time. The only butter in the store that came in sticks was garlic butter, so I used that and omitted the garlic powder and accidentally forgot the salt.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
I made this cake with one substitution (full fat plain goat yogurt instead of sour cream) and it turned out really well. Used a 9x13 pan and I accidentally set it on 375 for the first 30 minutes and then turned it down to 325 for another 12 minutes. The edges were a bit dark but the centre was still moist and delicious. The taste is great and I don't even think this cake needs any icing. I covered it in buttercream and fondant and made it even more sugar-coma inducing.

Steamed Green Tea Cake with Black Sesame Seeds

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
This was surprisingly easy to make. I used my B&D Electric Steamer. I poured most of the recipe into the oval plastic container and the rest into 4 ramekins. It took about 15 minutes for the ramekins and 20 for the oval plastic container to steam fully. Thanks for the recipe. I was skeptical about folding in the egg whites, but it worked. It was very fluffy and not dense for me. Would go well with cream cheese icing. In my opinion, most things go well with cream cheese.

Turkey with Orange Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
It is a good sauce, but like someone else has said, needs more depth of flavour. Some sort of seasoning could be added to it (not sure what).

Baked Trout Fillets

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
I made this for rainbow trout. Used 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup miracle whip and the same amounts for the rest of the ingredients. There was still more than half left when I was finished coating the fish. I sprinkled bread crumbs on top. I thought it was pretty good and I might use it again.

Lemon Snowflake Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
This cookie tastes like synthetic lemon so I didn't find them very tasty at all. My bf, who really likes lemon, didn't either. They may be quick to make, but I think it's worth it to make something with actual lemon juice or rind in it. Even the smell from the oven wasn't appealing. I used Duncan Hines extra moist lemon cake mix if that makes a difference? I also followed the recipe exactly as there wasn't much I could change. Also, I didn't find the batter too sticky to work with at all. They were quite easy to make.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
For a person making cole slaw for the first time, this is a pretty safe recipe. I made it last night with success just using 1 large carrot, 1 daikon, and 1 celery root. It's pretty tasty. I would definitely add some broccoli and raisins next time I make it. I think by itself, it's a little on the sweet side and I wouldn't eat very much of it.

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Poorly written directions made tasty and easy by all of the helpful comments. Read the comments before you try this recipe. I used 2% milk in this recipe and thought that 8 cups of milk was a lot at first. It turned out that the ingredients are in good quantities as is. Make sure you start out your milk at *medium/medium high* and get it up to a bit of a *boil* and then turn it back down to simmer at medium-low temperature. If not, your rice won't cook in the hour and you'll need to cook it longer. Pouring some of the rice mixture into the eggs and stirring before adding seemed to work for me (this prevents curdling of the eggs I am guessing). Also, there was a comment about the rice pudding not thickening after being taken off of the stove. *Mine definitely did thicken* and especially it thickened after refrigeration. I will probably cook it slightly less next time and half the recipe. It was way more than two people can eat :|.

Plum Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
I am sitting here trying to restrain myself from eating it all :(. While this recipe was tasty, I have to agree that you can't actually taste the plums. I made a couple of changes to this recipe out of necessity. I used sunflower oil instead of vegetable and I used 8 oz of fresh peeled black plums instead of baby food. I squashed them up in my hands and removed pits (no need for making the food processor dirty). I also used 1/2 cup pecans and 1/2 cup raisins by choice. It turned out really well. I almost forgot the icing but I'm glad I didn't :). I used a two-piece angel food tube pan for the recipe because I don't own a bundt pan. It worked.

Vegetable Lo Mein

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
My bf and I really like this recipe. We'll probably add it to our list of easy to make recipes that we rotate through. I didn't have bean sprouts so I've sliced green beans or snow snaps for the times that I have made it (added it with the carrots, etc). I also didn't use the honey as others suggested. While the spaghetti is tasty, I think it might be good with actual lo mein noodles next time. The pictures that are up with this recipe show huge chunks of veggies. I would suggest slicing them thinly as this makes the dish very easy to cook and eat.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
I haven't made scones before and I thought they were going to turn out bad. I used margarine and the mixture ended up finer than a pea and I substituted yogurt for the sour cream because I didn't have any. I forgot to add currants/raisins. These scones turned out really well for all that! They were soft when I made them and they are still soft this morning. They are almost like the ones I get at the Scone Witch in downtown Ottawa. I am going to try different flavours now :).

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This dish was ok. Not really something that I would make over and over again. Pretty colours though.

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
I made this today for a strawberry rhubarb pie. I followed the directions for a doubled recipe (using veg shortening). I used my regular old food processor. I found that I only needed about a half cup of ice water for the recipe to stick properly. This recipe didn't need any sugar added for an already sugary pie, it was flaky and good. I did wet the top a bit with water and sprinkle sugar on it to make it look pretty :).

The Best Double Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I modified this recipe slightly based on other reviews. I used 1/2 cup cocoa, 2 cups chocolate chips, 1 tsp cayenne, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon and had the oven at 350. I stuck to the rest of the recipe. I added the margarine and eggs to the sugar right before I combined the wet and dry ingredients to make sure my margarine wasn't melty? I did not grease the cookie sheet. The cookies turned out fluffy after 10 minutes exactly and they dropped a bit out of the oven. They were crunchy on the outside and chewy and delicious inside. I probably will use a little less cayenne next time though.

Vegetarian Bean Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I really enjoyed this recipe. It was very chili-esque. I ate it all week for lunch with rice. I barely noticed the raisins were in it.

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
When asked about this recipe, the boyfriend says its rating should be tasty or delicious but not mouth orgasm...I can't translate this into a star system very well, so I am giving it a 5 anyway. I took another reviewer's advice and tripled the lemon juice (didn't have extract or zest). I doubled the recipe but it only made 21 muffins. The bottoms of these got pretty dark on the second from top rack in my tiny oven, so be careful with that. They are very tasty and I shouldn't admit it... but both of us have almost eaten all 21 in one day...

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
This recipe was great. I followed all of the instructions except I took the advice of another person and doubled the spices, all but the cloves. The dough was very sticky, but I refrigerated it and that helped. Stayed fresh for days (almost a week I think)
