Crunchy Bagel Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Couldn't be easier and more rewarding. Great and healthier alternative to regular deep fried chips. Also a nice way to use up extra bagels. Works well with hummus or artichoke dip too.

Carolyn's Orange Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Delicious. I love this as a nice, fresh, spring/summery alternative to Cinnamon Rolls. The dough is great to work with too. Extremely soft and fluffy and delicious.

Chicken and Bowtie Pasta with Asiago Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
I used half cream, half milk and it still turned out really creamy. Excellent pasta and really easy too! I added about 1 cup chorizo pieces to the simmering cream. Thanks for a great recipe!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Good, quick recipe. If you have pie shells made up ahead of time, this comes together in a snap.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
FYI 5 quarts popcorn = 1/2 cup unpopped corn. Excellent recipe! This tasted better than anything storebought. Next time I will add peanuts or pecans. For a real treat, I double the caramel part. ***Use only 1/2 the butter (1 cup) and it's plenty rich enough.

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
This came together so quickly and easily. Highly recommendeed!!! After reading other reviews I made these changes: 1) Add 2 tbsp. peanut butter and decrease chopped peanuts to 3/4 cup. 2) Marinade chicken in the sauce for 30 mins. while you chop the veggies. 3) Triple all sauce ingredients except for chicken stock. Use 1 1/2 tbsp corn starch. 4) I added 1/2 steamed zucchini, 2 cups steamed broccoli and 8 mushrooms.

Hong Kong Style Egg Tarts

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
This makes a LOT of tarts. I got 40 muffin-tin sized tarts. The filling was awesome - spot on - but the crust could be substituted with a different crust recipe or mayve a puff pastry shell. Don't skip the straining step. You could alternatively skim off the foam using a spoon. The taste of these gets better after they rest a while.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
I left off the cinnamon-sugar topping (so they would be easier to pack and travel with) and these were still excellent. They rose up beautifully and looked storebought. A definite keeper.

Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Like others recommended, I marinaded the mushrooms (I used teriyaki sauce) before wrapping them. I also baked the bacon for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees F before wrapping the mushrooms, otherwise it wouldn't have cooked fast enough. Others suggested using only 1/2 a strip of bacon per mushroom, but I used a whole strip - depends on mushroom size. I got rave reviews on these!

White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Super easy recipe! I prepared the crust and filling a day ahead and just put it together right before serving. It only too 10 minutes to assemble and it looked amazing with quite a "wow" factor.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Smooth, shiny and sets perfectly. No need to pull out the mixer for these. The ingredients come together easily with a fork and some vigorous stirring.

Buttermilk Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
Taste was okay. It would have been better with cake flour. I gave this 3 stars because it was so-so. I'd make it again in a pinch but not my first choice of pound cake recipes.

Apricot Braids

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
his is awesome. Half of it was gone before I could even glaze it! There was just the right amount of filling too. I refrigerated it overnight after shaping the braid and then removed it from the oven and let rise for 20 minutes then baked it. It was wonderful.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
I used 2.5 cups sugar and it was perfectly sweet. I have successfully used this in other recipes such as jam thumbprints and as a tart filling. To get 4 cups of mashed strawberries I used the whole 2lb. box minus about 1.5 cups of strawberries. I chopped these up coarsely and added them to give the jam some texture and chunkiness.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
This was very easy to make and turned out great. I threw in 1/2 cup wheat bran and reduced the flour by about 1/4 cup to add more fibre. I will be making my own bread from now on thanks to this recipe!

Cranberry Cheese Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
The filling for this recipe is exactly the same as for "Cranberry Crumb Pie" on this site. Simply excellent. I made my own sweetened condensed milk (blend together 1c. milk powder, 3 tbsp butter, 1/3 c. hot water, 2/3 c. sugar) and it still turned out great.

Cranberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
i just brought this to a potluck today. it got rave reviews. there were several desserts but this one was the only one that had people going back for seconds! i made my own cranberry sauce (simmer 15 mins until thickened - 2c. cranberries, 1c. sugar, 1/2c. orange juice) and followed the rest of the recipe as written. i have also tried this with an almond crumb crust and topping and i think i liked that even better. (in a food processor combine 1c. flour, 2 1/2 cups ground almonds, 3/4c. sugar, 3/4 c. butter. pulse until clumps form. reserve 1.5 cups for the topping then press the rest into the pie plate, no need to prebake crust)

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I did what others suggested and used 3/4 cup oil, 1/2 cup applesauce. I kept everything else the same. It was a perfectly texture cake. A real carrot cake as opposed to a carrot muffin or morning glory muffin. Richly flavored and wonderful even without frosting.
