Irish Cream Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
This was so delicious, I wish I had made larger portions! After asking Santa for a kitchen torch for a few years now, I finally got one and made this for New Year's. I didn't have Irish cream on hand so used up the end of some chai liqueur. It was amazing!

Avocado Lime Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
This was very easy to make (I used an ice cream maker). It was a nice refreshing desert that wasn't too heavy. A great way to top off taco night! I added a splash of tequila when the filling was in the ice cream maker which was a delicious twist!

Sister Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2012
Fantastic! I made a big bowl thinking it would last us for a few meals but no, we ate it all in one supper! The kale I used had purple spines, not sure what variety that is, and it was so pretty. I also cut down on prep time by using bagged carrot slaw and I threw some chicken in to make it a complete meal. I only marinated it for about four hours and it was perfect. I am going to be making this for two family reunions this summer and can't wait to hear the rave reviews!

Easter Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2012
I place the hash browns in the pan and brown before putting in the other ingredients. I like my potatoes to be a little crispy, that's all - personal preference. I also assemble it the night before and refrigerate so there is no prep in the morning. I find my casseroles don't really layer either, I think because my pan is bigger and everything spreads out, and things float up and down. Doesn't matter, it always turns out delicious!

Grandma's Cranberry Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
This was delicious! So moist and flavourful. Like another reviewer, I didn't have any cranberry liqueur so I simmered a handful or so of cranberries in water and sugar then mooshed the cranberries once they were cooked and added that to the batter. I made the cake in the afternoon and served it for New Year's dinner and the cake soaked up most of the sauce that pooled around the bottom. I didn't find it too sweet at all. Just perfect!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
OH YUM! Wow, that is a good recipe. I doubled the sauce and still wanted more so will triple it next time. I didn't know what to do with the garlic so I just flattened it with a knife blade. I also took one cook's advice and added a half of a sliced white onion at the same time as the garlic. I served over pasta. This dish is simple enough for any night and sexy enough for guests. It's going into regular rotation at our house! ***UPDATE*** I made this again last night but quadrupled the sauce. Not a good idea!!! It stayed watery and really vinegary. I even tried to thicken it with tapioca starch. It did not work. Stick to the original recipe or just double the sauce like I did the first time, or use two pans so that the sauce can spread out and caramelize. Aside from last night's fiasco, this is still my new favourite recipe!

Spinach Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
I had fresh spinach and basil to use up but not enough of either to make its own dish. I thought the spinach would weaken the basil but no! It was very good! I can't eat dairy so I substituted olives for the parm to add saltiness. I can't wait to make it again!

Prune and Olive Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
I made this twice last week, once just for DH and me the other for New Year's dinner. The first time I used three boneless breasts, the second four. The first I marinated in all the ingredients, the second I added the sugar and wine before placing in the oven. I didn't notice any difference between the two. I don't think it needs to cook for the full hour, but that might just be my oven and the fact that I was cooking boneless breasts. I loved this recipe and intend on making it more often! It is easy for a week night and a very nice dish for company.

Lebanese Fattoosh

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Delicious! I had many rave reviews from my dinner guests. I used zatar, which has sumac in it, instead of the straight sumac. Will definitely make again!

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Excellent! I used wild boar side bacon from the farmers' market and doubled the recipe. I served it both for a birthday dinner and brunch (almost 30 people in total) plus had a lot left over. They didn't make it to the freezer though, they got eaten over the next few days. I had a lot of rave reviews!

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
After reading a bunch of reviews, I wasn't expecting an outstanding brownie experience. However, these far exceeded what I anticipated! I added chocolate chips and walnuts, and some instant coffee granules. That gave them a richer chocolatey taste. I also did half walnut oil, half apple sauce. I also think the trick is to eat these cold so that they don't crumble as easily. The first brownie out of the pan fell apart, but the rest stayed together better. I must admit I did miss the crispy edge of traditional brownies but as I said to my husband, I would much rather eat these brownies than no brownies at all! ***UPDATE***I took another cook's suggestion and made these again in a mini muffin pan and that is the ticket! They were near perfect that way! I also replaced the water with an Americano. Based on an experience I had with a brownie mix over the weekend, I wonder if they would be even crispier/chewier if you replace some of the oil with melted vegan marg... Plan on making this again this weekend so will update with the results.

Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
I made this for supper tonight and had a very hard time waiting for my husband to get home from work!!! I halved the maple syrup and added some smoked paprika and onion powder and it was just perfect! I served it over some grain-free biscuits. It was just the two of us and there is not much left over, it was so good. I will be making this often!

Jeanie's Falafel

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
These were good but were missing something. I will definitely make them again, and not when I am in a rush! Maybe I forgot to add something! Instead of deep frying, I used a muffin tin and baked at 375 for maybe a half hour. I put a bit of oil in the bottom each cup to crisp them up. A little more oil than just a brush, but not too much. I put maybe a half inch in one cup by accident and the falafel disintegrated. My dinner guests enjoyed them!

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
I made this today for Father's Day and it was delicious! I sautéed the onions with the sausage to soften them up, and added a bit of broccoli and spinach for some colour (would have added red pepper but inlaws are not a fan). Next time I will add a bit more potato, but that is only a personal preference. I need an excuse to make this again!

Doggie Birthday Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
This was very good cake, both for our birthday pups and us! The people servings had ice cream on top, otherwise it is fairly dry. I admit I had to make a few substitutions due to allergies (almond butter and grain-free flour), and I added a sprinkle of cinnamon, but the flavour was wonderful. I baked it in a dog-shaped pan (from Ikea) in a convection oven and it was done in 20 minutes. I think I will play around with it to make it a bit more moist for people!

Sour Cream Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
This was great! I have one comment for the people who thought it was too dense and rubbery. When working with waffle, pancake and muffin batter, only mix the dry and wet ingredients until just moistened. Make a well with the dry ingredients and add the wet to the centre, and gently mix together. Overworking the batter is what makes the results chewy.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
Yet another new favourite recipe!!! I made this with basa and it was amazing! I baked it in the oven at 400F and it turned out perfect. A few days later, I doubled the sauce, marinated chicken in it and made it into stir-fry. Still delicious, but it didn't thicken as I had hoped. Tonight I made it as a glaze on chicken, baked it in the oven at 350F but overcooked it! It tasted like disappointment! So, don't double, and watch you don't overcook it!
