Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
I thought this was a very good recipe although I did make a few alterations. I used 6 chicken breast halves for 6 people (in hindsight 4 would have been plenty) and cut them into big cubes. I didn't cook them ahead of time but put them raw on top of the veg and I doubled the sauce. I used two 'boxes' of organic baby spinach but it sure didn't look like much when slightly cooked so I added one big head of broccoli cut into tiny florets. I made my own Italian seasoning from a recipe on this website and had to cook it longer to get the chicken cubes in the centre of the pan cooked. I kept a close eye on it after 45 minutes to be sure the chicken was not overlooked. We served it on gluten-free penne pasta with a tossed salad. I kept all the ingredients (except for the broc) and proportions the same so the changes I made didn't really change the flavour or tone of the recipe but just made it easier to prepare.

Classic Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
Great recipe except for the cooking time. I have been making meatloaf like this for years. Sometimes I use other vegetables like sweet potatoes or zucchini. I don't really think you can get the veg fine enough by chopping (unless you plan to chop for AGES). Before I had a food processor I used to grate them. Also if you use oatmeal instead of the bread crumbs it becomes Gluten Free.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
I make a similar recipe but instead of the mini-pb cup I just put about a teaspoon of milk choc chips in the hollow of the cookie and put a cookie sheet over top for a few minutes until they melt. Then, depending on how energetic I am, I might put in a dab of real PB and swirl it a bit with a sharp knife. Then a salted shelled peanut on the top lets consumers know that these are not a peanut-free treat. Since I pretty well always have choc chips on hand this treat is one I can easily whip up if I need a quick, sweet treat for something special. I have never found anyone who didn't love them.
