Roasted Potatoes with Tomatoes, Basil, and Garlic

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
I used garlic scapes that I diced it up in the Magic Bullet instead of garlic cloves; I used butter instead of olive oil as I prefer the taste; and I left out the rosemary. Delicious! This might become a new staple in our home. The only problem is that it took much longer than I anticipated to cook thoroughly -- it was probably in the oven for 45 minutes in total. I would dice the potatoes smaller next time or put them in the oven sooner.

Baked Asian-Style Honey Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
I've made this a couple of time with a few changes to accomodate what I had on hand, and it was delicious every time. Used garlic scapes that I finely chopped in the Magic Bullet instead of garlic cloves; used 1/4tsp of dried ginger instead of fresh (could probably use a bit more next time); used chicken thighs (skin removed) instead of a whole chicken; used half an onion in the marinade; and omitted the green onions. I use a 9x13 dish as I assume it was a typo in the instructions. I also marinate this overnight as other reviewers have suggested (I can't imagine it would be ready after only an hour of marinating unless you maybe poke holes in the chicken first but then you risk it drying out while baking). I will definitely keep making this recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
This could be my favourite muffin recipe! I follow the recipe exactly, and they turn out great. Be sure you use cold butter for the topping or else you won't get the nice crumb texture that sits on top of the muffin. I've made these several times, and my family can never get enough!

Cape Breton Blueberry Grunt

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Super easy and yummy! I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and baked for 35 minutes so that it was golden brown on top.

Nanna's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
Delicious! I've made it twice, and it turned out great both times although my oven required me to bake it for 70 minutes. The first time I made it exactly as the recipes says to (although I omitted the nuts) so that I could fairly judge the recipe. The second time, I made a few changes -- I beat the bananas/liquids in the mixer until smooth rather than in the blender; added an extra banana for more flavour; and added 2/3cup chocolate chips. Perfect!

Nikki's Creamy Crock Pot Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
It has potential but is waaay to salty and hot as is. I LOVE salt, but this was overkill. I would definitely cut the seasoned and celery salts in half next time. Also, I only used 3/4tsp of red pepper flakes as other reviewers suggested cutting back significantly. This was still too hot for our liking, so I would go with 1/2tsp next time. I didn't find the recipe had much flavour overall, but I'm guessing the salt overwhelmed the other flavours. I boiled the potatoes instead of microwaving them. Also, I did Step 3 on the stove instead of in the slowcooker as a few other people suggested -- it thicked well this way.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
These aren't for me! I found that baking them like this brought out the bitterness of the kale. My husband ended up eating them all so they wouldn't go to waste, but he politely suggested that we find another way to prepare kale from now on.
