Chewy Maple Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2004
OH YUM!!!! These are awesome cookies Debbie ~ thanks so much for posting the recipe! I made them exactly as written (no extra flour) except I baked them at 350 for 8 minutes. My oven tends to run hot so this might not work for others ~ and I like to underbake my cookies a bit so they are extra chewy. The maple flavor was just right. Using a good quality maple syrup is key when baking ~ and none of that "maple-flavored" stuff either. I liked the coconut but I'm going to try the crushed walnuts next time.

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
Thank you Dash!!!! I'm from Nova Scotia and I CRAVE these things. This recipe is a great recipe for donair meat ~ the sauce is bang-on, as well. For the reviewers who may be unsure of what to do with the sauce and meat: 1) Fry a pita in a small amount of oil to soften it (I just put mine in the microwave for a few seconds ~ it's just to make the pita pliable to wrap around the fillings), fry the donair meat in same pan to warm it, and then fold the pita around the donair meat, sauce and chopped tomatoes and onions for toppings. (I've also had them with mozzarella cheese melted in them ~ mmmmmmmmm). 2) Meat and sauce make great oven-baked subs (same topping suggestions). 3) Donair Pizzas ~ sauce, meat and whatever toppings strike your fancy, mozzarella cheese. 4) The famous Donair Plate: fries topped with meat, sauce, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, mozzarella cheese and baked in the oven. (I order mine without the fries ~ personal preference). I can't believe donairs haven't really caught out outside eastern Canada ~ these are big business at the pizza shops here....I order donairs way more often than pizza ~ my 13-year-old has been an addict since he was old enough to pick off my plate. :-) Oh, and pizza corner rocks for donairs.

Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
This is my all-time favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. For years, I made the more complicated floury cookies before finding this recipe in a kid's cookbook. Very peanut buttery and chewy. Remember to let them cook 4-5 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing them to a wire rack though ~ they break easily when warm.

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2004
The combination of butter and extra-virgin olive oil make this my new favorite garlic bread. I usually just made mine with butter but I'll always make it this way now. I made it to go with a pasta dish that turned out badly (not from this site) and the bread actually helped make it palatable. Saved my meal. :-) Thanks Clair.

Quick Chinese-Style Vermicelli (Rice Noodles)

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
This is a great Asian-style noodle dish. I used to work at a Chinese Restaurant and the simplicity of this dish closely mirrors that style of cooking. If you're looking for a noodle recipe with a heavy or zesty sauce, French or Italian-style dishes are a better choice. That said.....I LOVE this dish! I used vermicelli instead of the rice noodles and doubled the garlic, soy sauce, and chili sauce. A very quick and simple dish. Thanks for posting Serena!

Chunky Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2004
Great warm, creamy, comforting soup. I served it with lightly toasted garlic bread for dippers. YUM! My roomate told me it's the same soup that is served at the ski hill here. Next time I make this, I'll chop my veggies larger to give the soup a more chunky effect.

Richard's Breakfast Scramble

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2004
Great breakfast Heather! Simple ingredients and easy to throw together. I made this for The Boy for breakfast this morning, along with toast, before sending him off to school for the day. He LOVES it.....says it's the best breakfast he's ever had ~ then told me to rate this one a five-star! High praise indeed coming from Mr. Doesn't-Wanna-Eat-Anything-But-Chicken-Noodle-Soup.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2004
If simple recipes like this weren't ever posted, my roomate wouldn't know how to feed herself. Plus, its a basic recipe....I think it's a great idea to post it. I've been making these forever ~ just taught The Boy how to make them too. My variation is to put thinly sliced tomatoes and finely chopped onions, sprinkled with salt and pepper, in between two layers of cheddar cheese. YUM. Mozzarella works well like this too. Many thanks, Sara, for posting this old favorite.

Best Bruschetta Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
I tried this by itself, spooned onto thin slices of toasted baguette and I think it would be good this way if you used FRESH basil and a dash of balsamic of red wine vinegar ~ but I found it very blah as is. (Sorry Azriel) I think it is a very good base though. I doctored mine up by spooning them onto baguette slices, topping with shredded mozzarella, and popping into the oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese. It's the only way I could get The Boy to eat them ~ of course the "Picky" wouldn't touch them at all but, well, that happens with a lot of things.

Fairy Godmother Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2004
Loved this dish! I left out the water chestnuts because none of us care for them, and I used vermicelli, broken into small pieces instead of the thin egg noodles. This recipe is going to be part of my regular rotation for sure.

Apple Delight

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2004
We made Cherry Delight with cherry pie filling and Swiss Chocolate cake mix because that's what I had in the cupboard. LOVED IT! The Boy and I ate the whole pan tonight after supper (1/2 recipe so 8x8" pan ~ oink, oink). I read the reviews first and picked up a couple pointers: I used double the butter (I'm not freaky about fat and calories with my desserts ~ obviously) and I mixed the butter into the cake mix instead of drizzling it over top. It took about 10 minutes longer to bake. Gotta go do a double work-out now!

El Grande Borezo Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2004
Great chicken recipe Keith! I used fresh garlic instead of the powder and I'm glad I read the reviews and knew to line my pan with foil ~ clean-up would have been a pain otherwise. I plan to use this recipe for my next "company dinner". Tonight, we pigged out on it ourselves. :-)

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2004
Beautiful cookies! I had never eaten or made Snickerdoodles before so i wasn't sure what to expect. I love them (I'm having trouble leaving them alone as a matter of fact). I don't think I would try flattening the cookies before baking, as others have suggested: I like the domed look of these cookies. The only change I made was to use all margarine instead of half butter and half shortening ~ but that was only because I didn't have any butter (which I prefer to bake with) and the margarine in my fridge was the cheaper kind. :-P great recipe Beth.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
My son LOVED these! He ate 3 in one sitting. I'm not a ketchup fan so I was a bit less enthusiastic. I always like to try a recipe as it's written the first time, and these are great if you ARE a ketchup fan, however I think I'll try adding Worcestershire the next time. I really liked that they weren't too sloppy ~ easier laundry day for me. :-) Thanks Tamara. These will be part of our regular rotation from now on.

Spicy Peruvian Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2004
I didn't find this hard to make at all. I made it as written and found it was more tangy than spicy. The next time I'll try adding a bit more cumin and maybe some cayenne. I really enjoyed the dish! Thanks Kimber!

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2004
Great recipe! I made it as written (without raisins because we don't like them) and really enjoyed it but next time (and there will definately be a next time) I'll make a brown sugar sauce to pour over top. Yummy! Thanks Ellen.
