Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
excellent and so easy! My husband does the following: he slices a tart apple, like granny smith or spartan, very thin, and then dips the apple slices in the batter. Nice if you're not feeling like grating the apple!

Couscous Royale

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
This was a huge hit at a dinner party- everyone had seconds! This also made way more than 6 servings- more like 10 generous ones. I also found I had enough broth in the meat and vegetable mixture to prepare the couscous. I simply threw in the 2 cups of couscous directly into the pot after it was done cooking, waited 5 minutes, and gave it a stir (I used medium sized couscous). We also found it wasn't as spicy as we would have liked, so we simply mixed a teaspoon or so of harissa with some chicken broth, and poured it over the meal. It was fabulous. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
I doubled the recipe and served this at a wine tasting party- instant hit! I couldn't find gorgonzola in my area, so I replaced it with a Bresse blue cheese, and it still worked quite well. Our guests LOVED this and went through it in no time!

Paella

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2005
Stellar, and so easy to prepare! We scaled the recipe to 4 servings, as I can't think of a wok big enough to make 10. I added spiciness by using only spicy sausage. I also added a splash more chicken broth when simmering with the sausage. The shrimp adds more moisture, so the rice cooked up perfectly. My guy said this tasted better than any he's ever had before (and that's saying a lot!)

4H Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2005
Wow, this one might have replaced my standby banana bread recipe! I followed everyone's recommendation of using 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar, and doubled the recipe to make 2 smaller loaves in aluminum tin pans. Added chopped pecans and chocolate chips, and baked the 2 loaves for a good 70 minutes and another 10 minutes at 325 to ensure the inside wasn't pudding. Delicious!! I've been in a friendly competition with my boyfriend's mom for his preferred banana bread, and this one won. lol

Buttermilk Pancakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
Amazing, fluffy, light pancakes that are SO easy to make. We followed the recipe exactly, and mix the dry ingredients in advance, so that we just pull out a container of the dry, mix with the liquids in a blender, and stir in fresh blueberries. HUGE rave from me- these never stick around for long at the brunch table!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
Considering how fast and effortless this recipe was, giant payoff in flavour. I added an extra half cup of fruit (I made a mix of peach and raspberry), and otherwise kept the recipe as is. Served with vanilla ice cream. Our dinner guests loved it and my mother in law asked for the recipe! :-D

Roasted Rosemary Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
Great way to cook cauliflower! My fiance enjoyed it immensely. 1/2 a cauliflower head was enough for us two adults. I also had some leftover bread crumb and garlic mix from a rack of lamb I made the night before, and haphazardly tossed on top. It was delicious, nice and crunchy. we're making more tonight!

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
As many others did, I used what I had on hand for the flavour, increased the amount of oats and had to omit the Grape Nuts since they are impossible to find in my area. I used dried cranberries, chocolate chips, and slivered almonds as well, and increased the applesauce by a bit to make a chewier bar. I also doubled the recipe and used a 9x13 pan- and these made 16 standard-sized bars. The flavour? I don't see kids loving them, since they aren't as sweet as boxed granola bars. Might be a bit bland to some. To us, it reminds us just how much sugar the boxed kind must contain, and it makes us shudder! Great as breakfast-on-the-go. Will make again! Thanks for the recipe.

Homemade Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I've been trying out recipes for portable breakfasts for my husband, and these are pretty amazing! Surprisingly sweet, too. My alternates: natural sugar-free peanut butter instead of regular, honey instead of corn syrup (ew + bad for your health), no vanilla as I had none on hand, and instead of seeds, added peanuts. I baked them for 18 minutes, and cooled them; however, they weren't firm enough and many in the middle of the pan fell apart, so I'll try baking them and cooling them longer. But for flavour, these are fantastic.

Pad Thai

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
We really liked this recipe! It's not the same as in our local take-out restaurants, but we like that. I added an onion, 2 garlic cloves as per someone's suggestion, and replaced the bean sprouts with a green pepper cut in strips, and used boneless chicken thighs. Would make again.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This was quite tasty! I, too, browned the beef coated in flour and garlic powder, added a dash of Worcestershire sauce, omitted the corn starch, added a potato and some mushrooms, and then used the slow cooker, high for 4 hours. It was delicious with tender meat, and we dipped home-baked bread into the sauce. Fantastic recipe.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
tasty, quick little Halloween snack! I had some leftover sugar and spice pre-mixted from making an apple dessert, and just used this. When the mix hit the seeds in the hot pan, the house smelled wonderful. We aren't huge fans of pumpkin seeds, but love carving Jack O' Lanterns, and this was our favourite recipe yet!

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
We thought this was awesome, and was perfect fare for a cold, snowy night. This was the first time I made this kind of dish, and neither of us ever had it before, so we didn't know what to expect. I followed the recipe to a T, save for omitting the peas (didn't have any), and inadvertently cooking the broth and chicken for an extra 10 minutes. I think the next time I'd add an extra cup of water or store-bought broth, because our stew wasn't saucy much. I'd also half the number of dumplings and make them smaller the next time. We used a soup spoon to drop the dough and they became pretty big! But overall a tasty dish that we will be making again in the very near future. Thanks for sharing!
