Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
YUM. YUM. YUM. I made two changes. First, I used mixed flour (whole wheat, white, some rice flour). Second, I added some chocolate chips (not sure how much, just the rest of a bag I had - probably just under a cup). TO DIE FOR. Very banana-y, and coupled with the chocolate, just heavenly. Because of the 6 bananas, the bread was heavy and moist, but I didn't have any problems with baking. Turned out great, and hubby LOVES it too.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
SOOOOO yummy. I make half a batch and it covers all of my three layer cake. However, I usually make 3/4 of a recipe so that I can secretly have an extra container of it in my fridge to sneak spoonfuls of throughout the week. Teehee. BEST CHOCOLATE FROSTING EVER - just make half a batch.

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Loved these cookies, as did my guests. The only change I made was that I swapped in hazelnuts for the walnuts. A wonderful cookie warm right out of the oven! I put them as hand-rolled balls onto the baking sheet and they didn't flatten much - this made them a little more cake-like in the centre as they didn't flatten too much, but they were delicious this way! Will try flatter next time to see whether I like them as much. I only baked one sheet of cookies (which was gobbled up by my company!). Will freeze the rest in cookie shape so that I can plop them right onto a baking sheet for fresh-out-of-the-oven goodness any night of the week (danger!). Super yum, this recipe is a keeper. EDIT: several delicious batches later, I have made them even better (if possible) by adding 1.5 cups of all natural crunchy peanut butter. I also doubled the baking soda and salt, but will try normal quantities again next time. TRY WITH PEANUT BUTTER - the most complexly delicious cookie ever.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Turned out nice and flaky. The reason for the three stars is that I found the flavour not to my liking. Using all shortening, in my mind, is not a good idea. Didn't taste right. I will try using butter, or a butter-shortening mix next time.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
This recipe gets one star for two reasons. First, the sauce that you are supposed to pour over the lattice (I followed instructions exactly) turned into a gloop and was not pourable. I then removed the apples from my pie, put them into a bowl, and tried to mix the gloop around - didn't work. So I put the apples back in the crust and just sort of spread the gloop on top of the apples, and put my lattice (now very frail and breaking from having removed it once already) back onto the pie. When the pie came out of the oven and was warm it was very watery. As other reviewers suggested, I served this one cold. It tasted good, but I added cinnamon, so I don't know that it would taste good otherwise. The other reason I give this one star is because I note so many reviewers had problems with the amount of apples. There is a big difference between LARGE apples and SMALL apples - huge - so anyone posting a recipes should state the size of apples. Luckily I have a good eye for volume and used 4 large granny smith, and 2 small red apples that I needed to use up. Before you cook, check out all of the one star reviews - I should have done that first!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Simple and tasty. I added about 1/3 cup of red wine and a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar for a little extra flavour. I didn't have a can of beef broth, so I used "Better Than Buillion', a wonderful organic beef paste. I just ate a bowl fresh out of the crock pot on a cool autumn day - wonderful! Oh yeah - and I used bison stew meat as that is what I had kicking around.

Grilled Mustard Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
A very simple and tasty recipe that you can adjust to your liking with the ingredients and herbs you have on hand. I made a few changes that I would recommend. * First, I used regular mustard instead of dijon, and it turned out great with the regular yellow picnic mustard. * I used all red potatoes, and used organic extra virgin olive oil because I only keep that oil on hand (and use it for all baking/cooking regardless of instructions... because I dislike having a cupboard full of condiments!). I used celery seed plus a bit of salt because I don't have celery salt. I also added 2 very large cloves of garlic, minced, and a handful of fresh rosemary from my garden, coarsely chopped. * Once I cooked the potatoes, I coated them with the entire mixture, then transferred them to a single layer on foiled pans. Brioled in the oven until brown, turning them once (broiled for about 10 minutes, watching carefully). * Once that was all done I cooled them, then tossed with a few shakes of dried dill in the original bowl that I had mixed them in (there was about a tablespoon of the oil mixture left). Delicious!

Almond Chocolate Coconut Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Easy to make and delicious. I only made half the recipe, which was plenty. Other modifications: I didn't have any baking soda, so I used baking powder (1 tsp soda = 2 tsp powder), and omitted the salt. I substituted half the vanilla with almond extract, added 1/4 cup extra coconut (because I wanted to finish my jar of it), and added about 1/2 cup less of chocolate chips than called for. These really do taste like almond joy (at least with the almond extract and extra coconut in there), and are a really nice texture. Will definitely make this one again!

Lemon Squares III

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
*The author forgot to add the lemon to the main part of the squares*. My boyfriend made these for my bday, leaving the lemon out of the squares (it was still in the icing). Even without the lemon in the squares THEY WERE SO DELICIOUS. I almost ate the entire pan myself. Next time we'll add the lemon to the squares and the icing!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2002
These cookies are absolutely scrumptralescent. I brought them for dessert at a family gathering, and everybody scarfed them up before they even touched the Girl Guide cookies or delicious apple pie! I want to try adding hazelnuts to this recipe too.
