No Bake Sweet Marie Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2015
This isn't a fancy torte, it's a no bake sweets recipe that has been used for ages... During the energy crisis, in times of economic strife etc. In addition to the corn syrup, peanut butter (always the crunchy variety) and brown sugar, I add about a 1/4-1/2 c of maple syrup. I add a half c of peanuts, but I run them through the chopper first, to create tiny pieces, rather than big crunchier ones. I don't add extra salt (lots on the roasted peanuts) and I don't add extra butter. The peanut butter provides more than enough fat for me. Truly a great Canadian recipe, fantastic to take to potlucks of for a really fast fix for dinner. (I'd better go make mine nowmmm

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
I loved it! As I had an event to go to, I opted to play a bit. I took little balls of the dough, and pressed them into greased mini-tart pans. They didn't have to bake as long as the full recipe (which, I had plenty left to make a 9x9 pan with!)

Lemon Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Wonderful! I did make some changes though. 3/4 c. milk + 1/4 c. sour cream, 1/4 cup lemon juice, *next time will use juice and rind of a whole lemon*, added 1/2 c each of walnuts, chopped dried apricots, and poppy seeds... ooops.. BUT... NOT poppy seeds as I realized AFTER I sprinkled... omg, they were CARAWAY seeds! I managed to scrape off some, but still had about 1/4 c. in the mix. Turned out perfect... no worries at all. :)))

Penne Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
Simply lovely. My 12 and 14 year old daughters love the flavour of peppers but don't actually like to bite on them - so I cut the peppers a bit larger which allowed them to have a portion with less - and us MORE! lol =) I used a combination of half Miracle whip and half sour cream in the basic dressing (I find it lets the flavours come through better.).... I do this with my potato salad also - and added about a tablespoon of pickled pimento chopped very fine. I also used half the dijon. After sitting in the fridge for 24 hours (tip: hide it in the back, bottom shelf - I know my kids and hubby are lazy and prefer not to bend!) the flavour of the peppers has imparted it's wonder into the pasta.. you may have to 'top up' the dressing as it soaks into the pasta. This is when I serve it - and it's GONE in no time flat.! Thanks for the recipe!!!
