Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
I am on a dairy free and gluten free diet, so these are awesome for me! I am making them again for the 3rd time, and just added a tsp of vanilla and used crunchy peanut butter. Taking them with me to a wedding tonight since I doubt there will be a gluten/dairy free dessert for me there! Thanks for the great recipe, they taste like fudge!

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
These were delicious! My only mistake was I think I cooked a full pound of ground pork and they were very meaty. Today I am going to make them again trying to use the right amount of pork this time. One of my friends said they were better than the ones served at the sushi place in our city!! I did add some crushed garlic, soya sauce, ginger and sesame oil to the meat while frying it. And left out the chile, but I will be adding it today to try it. Overall, these were so delicious! OH! I also used RICE PAPER WRAPS instead of spring rolls wrappers (the won ton kind) and they were soooooooo yummy!!

Honey Mustard Dressing I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
OMG you MUST use this for BBQ chicken! BF made this to use as a marinade/sauce for BBQ chicken breasts a few weeks ago. Absolutely delicious! I'm making it tonight again to baste my chicken breasts with it....haven't tried it as a salad dressing yet, but I'm sure it would be yummy.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Delicious! Craving a beef barley soup today and came across this recipe, sooooo glad I tried it! I followed the recipe almost exactly, just changing a few things to make it a bit easier. Didn't have the time to cook a whole roast, so used stewing beef instead, which I browned with the onions and a splash of Worcestershire sauce. Used beef broth and water with bouillion powder, a clove of crushed garlic and 3 small potatoes diced. Instead of stewing tomatoes used diced ones. Also used 1 full cup of barley since I love it! I kept everything else the same (minus celery cause the hubby HATES celery in anything!) and it was amazing! Simmered it on the stove for 2 hours instead of crock potting it since I started it way late in the afternoon. Will DEFINATELY make this a staple soup recipe in our house from now on. Oh Ya! I also put a few splashes of Maggi seasoning into it as well. Thank you so much for the amazing recipe!! Cheers! :)

Orange Pumpkin Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
AMAZING! Giving it 5 stars because it was so tasty, I used fresh pumpkin puree that I had on hand in the freezer for this, delicious! The only thing I might possibly change is cutting it down to a half of an orange. as the taste of the orange was a little overpowering. Maybe I would not include the entire peel and rind of it, just the orange slices themselves. I used sunflower seeds instead of nuts, mmmm mmmmmmmm good! Thanks for the great recipe. :)

Fluffy Canadian Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
These were pretty good. I only used 1 egg yolk like some people recommended, and they didn't taste like egg at all. I also added a tablespoon of sugar. Next time I will add some vanilla extract. I made them for my bf for breakfast this morning, and he had 2 helpings, so they have to be pretty good! LOL Thanks for the recipe. :)

Strawberry Trifle

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
Made this for Mother's Day for my mom, she loved it! I used only strawberries (by request from her) and real whipped cream. I made my own angel food cake 3 days before to let it sit for a couple of days (it turns out much better if the cake isn't fresh, it doesn't go soggy when in the trifle!) then made the trifle the day of. Was delish! My parents requested that I make this now for every occasion. Thanks for the great recipe! :)

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
Delicious! Followed it exactly, and it turned out so yummy. Instead of just using the tops for garnish, I chopped them in thirds and threw them into the soup. It needed to be thickened up a bit at the end, so I added some cornstarch and water. I will DEFINATELY make this soup again and again. :)

Broccoli and Provolone Quiche

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I'm giving this 3 stars, but it is probably because I didn't have some of the ingredients and tried to sub them. I didn't have any heavy cream, so I used a substitute of butter and milk (I found the substitution online) - this made it very greasy on the top - however I put about 1/2 c seasoned bread crumbs sprinkled on top to soak it up and that turned out yummy! I didn't have a pie crust, so just put the egg mixture right into the pan (this is lower fat anyways and I like my quiches without the crust). I also had no provolone cheese so used medium cheddar instead, and I mixed half in with the egg mixture and sprinkled the rest on top. I followed everything else in the recipe. Next time I make it, I will prob go buy heavy cream and try it with that. Overall, it was pretty good, just very wet. ****If you want to make it lower fat, cut the crust out of the recipe and top it with seasoned bread crumbs (I used garlic powder and Italian seasoning - it's really yummy and crispy!)****

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
This recipe was ok. I halfed the recipe and followed it exactly as written minus the white chips and nuts (didn't have any). The dough was pretty bland, definately needed more sugar. They were alright, but sadly did not live up to the name of Best Ever. Prob will try them again tho, because I'm sure with a bit of tweaking, they will be much better.

Easy Slow Cooker Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Awesome! I used a mix of ground pork and venison instead of beef, and added about 1/2 c parmesean cheese to the meat mixture. I only had one jar of pasta sauce on hand (Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato sauce) and I used a can of Aylmer Accents - Diced Tomatoes with Olive Oil. I also followed the advice of others and decreased the amount of bread crumbs. They were absolutely amazing! I will NEVER buy store bought meatballs again EVER. Thanks for the recipe! :)

Mexican Rice III

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Delish! Made this a few weeks ago with salsa baked chicken breasts and again tonight with tacos. I made a couple of changes: no jalapeno pepper or the crumbled boullion cube, and instead of a chopped tomato I used half a can of Aylmer Accents - Diced Tomatoes with Spicy Red Pepper. It added just enough heat to it, absolutely delicious! I will be making this every time we have mexican food, which is going to be more often so I can make this rice a alot! Thanks for the new staple rice recipe. :)

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Mmmmmmm....this was the BEST meatloaf I have ever had. I didn't follow the recipe exactly, here's the changes I made to mine: followed other reviewers and split the amount of lemon juice with balsamic vinegar, added a lot of garlic powder to the meat mixture (we really love garlic at our house), a splash of Worcestershire sauce, diced up some red peppers for colour and flavour, dried parsley and a little bit of chili sauce (the sweet kind). I also doubled the sauce because I like my meatloaf saucy! This was amazing, and I will be making it my staple meatloaf recipe from now on. Thanks for the awesome recipe! :D

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Awesome cookies! (if you love coconut) The only thing I changed was adding a little bit more vanilla extract, and adding a splash of coconut extract. These were yummy cookies, I will definately make them again! Thanks for the great recipe. :D *****Update: made these today; pressed my thumb in the middle of them and put raspberry jam in it before baking! Kind of gooey on the bottom of the cookies, but sooooooooooo good!! Try it, just don't put too much jam or it doesn't bake that well.*****

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
These were pretty good. I followed the modifications made by "canuwrite", and they turned out great! One apple was definately enough, and the crumble mix for on top was yummy with less butter.It made 9 regular sized muffins for me. I think next time I make them I will add more cinnamon and use apple sauce instead of oil for less fat. Thanks for the good basic recipe, you really can tweak it to what you like. They are yum! *****UPDATE**** Made these again last night, but substituted half of the oil with unsweetened applesauce. This reduces the amount of fat in the muffins, and they seemed to be more moist and fluffy. Delicious!!

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
OH MY GOD. This pie was amazing. I did what other reviewers suggested and did 1.5 c of coconut milk and 1.5 c of half & half cream. Kept everything else the same. I agree with making your own whipped cream if you are going to make this pie; if you're going to do something homemade like this, you gotta go all the way and make your own whipped cream. Made it for my dad's birthday, and he said that I have a job now every year until he dies - cooking these pies for his birthday! LOL Seriously, it was absolutely RIDICULOUS how good it was. It made too much filling, so I had a nice little cup of filling and whipped cream for desert an hour or so after I made the pie. Yum yum! :D Thanks for this sweet recipe! ----------------- Update - just made this with no dairy since I have developed a lactose issue - made with 1 cup of canned coconut milk and 2 cups of coconut milk in the carton (So Delicious brand) and it's turned out delicious! Going to make whipped cream from canned coconut milk, can't wait to eat this when it's ready! Gonna be very coconutty, but yum! Love coconut!

Really Basic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
So I was very skeptical about trying this recipe because of it only having 3 ingredients....so glad I tried it! I halfed the recipe because I only wanted to try it out - added a pinch of baking soda and a splash of vanilla extract. I also split the sugar into white and brown sugar, equal parts of each. I crushed some peanuts and added them to the dough as well. My bf LOVED them, and told me that I had better only make these ones from now on. LOL Thanks for the sweet recipe! :)

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Pretty good recipe, I found it a tiny bit bland so I made them again and made some changes: parboiled the potatoes first so it didn't have to bake as long, and added about a tsp. of minced garlic to the water; I also added about a pinch of dried dill and parsley to the sauce; while frying the onions, added some more garlic to them aswell. The last 10 minutes or so of baking, added some shredded medium cheddar cheese to the top of the potatoes.....DELICIOUS! Will definately make again, with my modifications. Thanks!
