Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
This made a wonderfully decadent birthday treat for a wheat intolerant friend. I used 3/4 cup chocolate chips instead of baking squares, and substituted coconut oil for butter (1:1). Coconut oil also came in handy for greasing the springform pan, which I then dusted with cocoa powder. This came out like a (thin) moist and very rich chocolatey brownie. Great topped with a dusting of powdered sugar and served with vanilla ice cream and a few fresh strawberries. This recipe is a keeper for sure!

Addictive Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
These turned out beautifully moist and flavourful. I made a few changes to the recipe: I used about half & half white and whole wheat flour; only used 2/3 of the sugar it called for; in lieu of nutmeg (which I don't like) used ground ginger and allspice; and in lieu of raisins used chocolate chips, flax seeds and sunflower seeds. I'll definitely make these again!

Grilled Pork Loin Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
This marinade is easy to whip up with ingredients that you probably have on hand in your pantry & fridge. The blend of seasoning is just right - not too gingery as some people have commented. I accidentally underestimated how much I'd need for the package of loin chops I'd bought so didn't have enough to make a sauce to serve with, but even having done double-duty as marinade and basting sauce was sufficient to impart a great taste. Next time I'll try this with chicken.

Peanut Butter Cookies IX

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2012
I'd hoped these would taste more peanut buttery. It may be because I elected to use up the rest of our salt/sugar-free PB (which made up about half of the total PB content). Otherwise they turned out very well.

Sweet Potato Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
These made a delicious sidedish to our Easter turkey dinner. Just a hint of sweetness. I boiled and mashed sweet potatoes and set the potato water aside for use as the liquid in this recipe. I made the dough in my bread machine, which worked out well. I then divided the dough up into 54 balls (18 x 3), in order to form "clover leaf rolls" by placing three small dough balls together in a greased muffin tin. I allowed them to rise another hour before baking for 12 minutes. Perfect!

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I substituted vegetable oil for the shortening in these and they came out beautifully light and fluffy. I used half regular light peanut butter, and half unsalted/unsweetened PB. Like many other reviewers, I opted for a chocolate fudge frosting, which complemented them very well. They have a very full and unexpected flavour - not your average cupcake!

Banana-Chip Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Flavourful and delicious! They were so moist coming out of the oven that I was tempted to overbake them. Best to stick to the guidance of baking just until a toothpick comes out clean!

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
Simple but tasty - came together easily with simple ingredients from around the kitchen. As other users suggested, I subbed in olive oil for the vegetable oil, and used white wine vinegar. The chicken breasts turned out beautifully on the BBQ!

Slow-Cooked Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
Straightforward, hearty and tasty! I jazzed it up a little by using one can of kidney beans and one of mixed beans (that included black beans, chickpeas, etc.) I also added a can of corn niblets which added some colour and interest. I found this lacked some 'zip' but it was nothing a dash of hot sauce couldn't cure!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
These were a huge hit at our Thanksgiving dinner! All of the delicious of homemade rolls with less effort. As have many reviewers, I prepped the dough in the bread machine then split it into 36 parts to make 12x3-piece clover leaves in an ungreased, no-stick muffin tin. They baked up perfectly!

Oatmeal Molasses Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
My first go-round with this loaf was a flop - LITERALLY - when I failed to notice the yeast had expired! The second trial went far better. I love this bread toasted with some butter/margarine and a slice of cheddar cheese on top. The sweet/savoury combination is wonderful! Just be careful - this loaf burns VERY easily in the toaster. In fact, I would be sure to set your bread machine to 'light' if you'll be baking it right in the machine.

Rosemary and Garlic Simmered Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2010
Overall, tasty with only a few straighforward ingredients. Even having used low-sodium broth, I found them quite salty and would cut down on the salt content next time. I was frustrated that, despite using a smallish skillet, the broth wasn't enough to submerge the chops (-- was this even the idea? --), and I'm afraid they ended up a little bit tougher as a result.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Great overall, and well received by folks of all ages. I substituted ginger for nutmeg which gave it a nice flavour. I found it a bit soft overall. Perhaps I didn't bake it quite long enough.

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
This recipe does indeed yield 12 medium-sized muffins if you don't overfill the tins. I used half whole wheat flour and also mixed in some flax meal for an extra nutritional punch. To save myself the grief (and potential mess) of the butter-based crumble topping, I just sprinkled their tops with a 1:1 cinnamon sugar mixture and this added interest and texture without the hassle.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I used this sauce to jazz up some frozen turkey burger patties. I used the leftover spread onto the bun for a bit of extra kick. Also, a few dashes of hot sauce can easily be substituted for the cayenne pepper.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2006
I skipped the cloves, and tried using 1 cup whole wheat with 1 cup all-purpose flour, and used 1/3 c. brown sugar with 2/3 white. The cookies came out poofy, as expected - almost a cookie-muffin hybrid. Cuffin? Moofkie? A tasty way to use up bananas and add some fiber to your day. Delicious warm with a glass of cold milk!
