Cream Cheese Frosting I

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
This is very good and so easy! I used more cream cheese than called for so mine wasn't thin or runny at all. There was extra left over, so I have some on hand for my next carrot cake or cupcakes...thanks for a great recipe!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Yummy! A very quick and easy alternative to rice. This would be great using any combination of herbs/spices. I'll definitely make this again.

Penne with Pancetta and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I used extra cream as another reviewer suggested. Also extra garlic was a must! This is a great base recipe and would be really nice with any combination of other vegetables added if you wanted. It was so quick and easy to make...I'll make this again. Thanks!

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
This is a winner! So easy and yummy! I didn't have canned tomatoes so I used fresh grape tomatoes instead (their skins aren't tough like cherry tomatoes). I squashed them a bit once they were in the pan and then let them melt down while the sauce simmered. It worked really well! I also didn't have heavy cream so I once again used what I had; some skim milk and a tablespoon of sour cream. The sour cream added some nice tang. I also added some dried italian seasoning and doubled the fresh garlic. A few fresh basil leaves on top finished this off nicely. Will make this again! Thanks!

Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
I actually used leftover wild rice because that's what I had on hand and it worked very well. I prefer red bell peppers so that's what I used. For more flavour I used spaghetti sauce as other reviewers suggested. My husband (who usually hates stuffed peppers) loved these. I will make them again. Thanks!

Roasted Vidalia Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Ohmygosh! These are so good! I've made them a few times and they always taste great! Just like french onion soup but without the hassle. I've even used yellow onions and they're okay, but I prefer using the vidalia. I added some crushed fresh garlic for added flavour. Yummy!

Coconut Macaroon Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
The rating is for the filling; as others suggested I used a different recipe for the brownies (Fudge Brownies I from this site). The coconut macaroon filling is a nice way to "dress up" regular brownies. I used a 9X9 pan because I like thick brownies and baked for approximately 60 minutes. Very good! Thanks!

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
With a couple minor changes, these are the best brownies I have ever made! As others suggested, I used 3 eggs rather than 4 and they turned out perfect. I also omitted the nuts. I like thick brownies so I used a 9X9 glass pan and baked for approximately 55 minutes. These brownies are nice and fugdey; not cake-like at all. This will be my standard brownie recipe from now on! Thanks!

Lazy Daisy Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
A lovely and very easy cake to make for a weeknight dessert. It never fails and is always moist. I used a bit extra coconut and the family loved it. I'll be making this on a regular basis. Thanks!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
Yummy! I added fresh grated nutmeg and increased the other spices for a bit more kick. I also used a gingersnap crust. Just crush 1 1/2 C of gingersnap cookies and add cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, 6 T of melted butter and a bit of brown sugar if you like it sweet. Pat this mixture into your pie plate and then the filling. I topped it off with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of chopped pecans. Thanks for a great recipe I will use again!

Wild Rice and Beef Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This is a good weeknight meal; it's so quick and easy to prepare. I used leftover cooked wild rice and it worked fine. I don't care for curry, so didn't use it. I didn't have mushrooms so used peas instead; also added minced fresh garlic and a touch of ground ginger and a can of sliced bamboo shoots. I'm glad I did as others suggested and added a layer of cheese in the middle of the beef mixture and used a few more Tablespoons of soy. Thanks for a quick and easy base recipe I will use again.

Sky High Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
These were good, although mine did not end up being sky high. I think next time I'll use a slightly higher oven temp. and make sure the pan is really smoking when adding the batter. Can't wait to try these again. Thanks!

Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
These are absolutely the best pickles! To ensure a crisp pickle be sure to cut about 1/8" off the blossom end of each cuke because enzymes located there can cause soft pickles. I also like to chop up the garlic cloves and then just put about 1 teaspoon in each jar, rather than the whole cloves. If I have them, I also pop a fresh dill flower in the centre each jar after the cukes are in. Thanks for a great recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Wow! This is my new favorite muffin recipe. So quick and easy. I cut the recipe to 6 muffina and it worked very well. I also added a bit of vanilla to the batter. Very nice...Thank you!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
This is great with a few changes; I used only 1/4 C brown sugar and 1/2 C milk and added worchestershire sauce as other reviewers suggested. I also added chopped fresh garlic and ground mustard to the glaze for a bit of zip. I cook meatloaf without a loaf pan; I line a jelly roll pan with tin foil and place a cooling rack on top of that. Then place the loaf on the rack; the fat just ends up dripping off the loaf. I also "baste" with the glaze a few times during cooking. Thanks for a nice recipe I will use over and over!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
These cookies were good, but not as chewy as I was hoping they'd be. As other reviewers suggested, I added a cup of peanut butter; they came out nice and peanutty. I also baked the cookies for 9-10 minutes at 350. I put chocolate chips in half of the batter, and left them out for the other half. Tasted good both ways.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
Yummy! What a great way to use the abundance of zucchini at this time of year! I halved the recipe BUT used the whole 2 Cups of zucchini and the whole 3/4 C of chocolate chips; it yielded one nice sized loaf. I had to bake this for a bit longer than the recipe specified, maybe because the one loaf had the full 2 Cups of zucchini. I also added a touch of nutmeg. My whole family loves this! I will make it again.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2007
This is a nice way to use up leftovers. I used a wild rice mixture without the flavour packet, and I didn't have heavy cream, so I used half & half and it was fine. For more flavour I started with a mirepoix (sauted onion, carrot and celery), then made the roux. I also added fresh garlic. I will make this again.

Tomato Alfredo Sauce with Artichokes

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
As others have mentioned, it's not really alfredo, but it's still really good. I omitted the flour and used heavy cream instead of milk and added minced fresh garlic and some sweet red pepper. This is a nice quick way to serve pasta. I will make this again.
