Mini Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
My only arguement is that it's a big recipe. My muffin tin made 6, so that's all I made, then used the rest of the batter to make a dozen cupcakes. Very delicious and will keep for dinner parties in the future!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Made this when my mother-in-law and sister-in-law were coming over for dinner. I doubled the recipe and I'm glad I did! Had I made it as stated, I'd probably have no leftovers and I really want to enjoy this for a couple of days! This will definitely become a regular menu item!

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Excellent Recipe! Had to make one change with the sugar as I didn't have brown sugar and didn't want to use white, so I used 1 tbsp of maple syrup. It's possible the recipe could have done without the sugar entirely considering the sugar from the dried fruit! Dried fruit I used was: apricots, cranberries, raisens, dates, and cherries. Am looking forward to trying others! Will be making again!

Lemon Sponge Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
FABULOUS dessert! Super easy and loved the tang- husband loved it! Portion size was perfect (despite wanting more!) Couple issues that were my fault- got distracted and couldn't remember where I was with measuring out the flour- didn't know if I was at 1 1/2 or 2 tbsp... then realized it was supposed to be TSP! Still turned out great! And timer on oven decided to poop out, so not too sure how long they were in the oven for- felt like longer than they should have been, but not sure. Will definitely be adding this as a regular dessert- and next time will pay more attention!

Cranberry Sauce II

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
Easy to make! Never used to like cranberry sauce until I had it out, so decided I wanted to make some. It was wonderful!

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Good recipe- easy to follow. Used almond milk and it seemed fine. Tasted great- liked that it wasn't super thick like some I've had. Biggest issue was the smell... very eggy. But other than that, very good!

Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
lovely muffins! Full of flavour! Made a couple adjustments as suggested by another person (used 1/4 cup oil and 1/3 cup applesauce, a little less sugar, and zest and juice from a fresh lemon) and it was VERY tasty!

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Recipe was alright. I had misplaced my original recipe and thought this was close... unfortunately it paled in comparison to my original and I was left disappointed. A little tomato-y. There wasnt anything necessarily WRONG with it... it just had a lot to live up to with what I was wanting and expecting. Probably won't make it again.

Tandoori Chicken II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Though I made this, I did not eat it as I am Vegan. I made it for my husband to accompany a "side" dish. When asked what he'd rate it, he said a 4 because of the spiciness and he's not huge on very spicy food.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
WOW AMAZING!!! I wanted to try a new recipe and came across this. As there's no (good) indian restaurants in town, I'm going through withdrawals! I took a chance and doubled the recipe so I could take some in my lunches, and I'm SO glad I did! What a GREAT recipe! Very easy, as well! Served over some brown basmati rice with naan, and I barely tasted it I ate it so fast!!! This will DEFINITELY be a part of my regular meals!

Multigrain Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I was exceedingly disappointed when I wanted pancakes for breakfast and discovered I had no mix. This recipe was simple and I had most of the ingredients, so I gave it a try- with a few changes. I only used 1 cup of whole grain flour as it was all I had in the house. I used 3 teaspoons of brown sugar as I didn't have Splenda. As I am Vegan, I removed the egg whites, yogurt, and milk and used 1/4 cup apple sauce and 1/2 cup (plus a bit more as needed) almond milk instead. Also didn't add the water. Recipe was quite sweet as I added 1 cup raspberries as well, so the brown sugar probably could have been reduced or eliminated. Will definitely keep this on hand for the future!

Oma's Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
I was initially drawn to this recipe because of the minimal fat. I adapted the recipe a bit to try and make it a little healthier: I used 1/2 the amount of sugar (by using Splenda brown sugar) and used whole wheat flour in both the cake and topping. I added 2 tbsp of egg white as I found the cake batter a little dry. And I also used 2 tbsp of apple sauce instead of the oil for the topping. It was REALLY more like a paste, so I had to put it on top by spreading it out by hand. I also baked them in muffin trays as they're a little more portable, but my rhubarb chunks were a little large, so they tended to collapse a bit. I also added the cinnemon as well as ground cloves and allspice into the topping. But VERY moist and delicious cake! Will DEFINATELY make again and look forward to adapting even more!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Fabulous dinner and was able to prepare it the night before, then just pop in the oven. Took someone's suggestion regarding the noodles (soaking them for 20 minutes so they're flexible, but not floppy, so very easy to handle)which was always the part I hated. Will definately make again and next time will add spinach!

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Very delicious and easy to make. Didn't calculate properly, so ended up with a LOT of left overs, but made a good sandwich!

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
Found this recipe when my husband requested turkey chili. Simple, easy, and nothing exotic. Made a couple changes: used 2 smallish zucchini as that was all I could find, but could have definately done with 3. Added a can of mixed beans, but I'll probably add another can of kidney beans. Instead of browning the onion, pepper and zucchini, I just tossed it into the chili as I was planning on letting it simmer. Didn't add the jar of chili's, but as I used a medium salsa, it was quite spicy enough. Will definately forward this recipe to my brother as he loves chili, but his wife doesn't eat beef.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
The only problem with making the recipe as presented was that there weren't enough!!! I ended up with 18 cookies and I split one with my husband. I made them on the 22nd for an Xmas Eve party and I'll probably have to make another batch! They are WAY too good!!! After reading the various reviews, the only change I made was increasing the cinnemon and cloves to 1 tsp each as I like those spices. I think they're perfect cookies!

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Followed the recipe exact and it turned out awesome! Broke as I was removing it from the pan, but it doesn't change the taste or stopping me from rating it a 5! (it was probably my mistake, anyhow!) Can't wait to make it for my family!

Hearty Multigrain Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Loved this recipe. Adjusted it (1 1/2 times) to fit closer to the usual recipe my husband uses in the machine. Worked out perfect. Didn't use the full amount of sugar, and used all whole wheat flour, but had everything else exact. My husband says the "verdict is still out" but he'll eat anything and it'll take some used to switching from white bread to whole wheat/grain bread. I know I'LL keep making this recipe! Look forward to trying different flours.
