Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
It was a simple yet amazing recipe. My Dad and boyfriend who don't even like cranberries said it was reaqlly good and had seconds. I changed the recipe by only putting in 1/4 tsp of almond extract and 3/4 tsp of vanilla. Also, instead of walnuts I used pecans. So good! Thanks:)

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
I am waiting for the last batch of these to come out of the oven. My apt. smells like Treats Cookie Shops used too at the mall in the morning. It is a very distinct smell that brings back childhood memories. I am sure it is the cloves that really gives it the character. This is a very good cookie. If made properly no one should be disappointed! Great with coffee or tea.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Very good base. For some reason I had to add about 4 teaspoons of milk to have the desired consistency...I couldn't even mix it with 2. The flavour and they way it stayed shiny was great though!

White Velvet Cutouts

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
These cookies turned out great. Had a nice light flavour...like a shortbread/sugar cookie combo with a twist. Great to decorate too. I used the Sugar Cookie Icing recipe from this site.

Japanese Wafu Burger

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
Nice change from the ordinary. I like the combo of beef and tofu...I left out the mushrooms though because it seemed like it would be a bit too heavy for my tastes. I made it with fried noodles and mixed veg with Edamames:) Very good all in all.

Italian Wedding Cookies III

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
Great Christmas Cookie. A nice change from the very rich and heavy treats. Nice to have with tea or coffee. I halved the recipe and still got 25 nice sized crescents. I used ground blanched almonds I purchased from the bulk food store. I used some almond extract as well. I found that by making crescents I didn't have to roll in sugar and worry about all that . I just let them cool on wire rack a bit. Then I used a makeshift seive (my tea strainer) filled with icing sugar and tapped it gently while lightly powedering all the cookies:) Worked great! I took an extra step to temper some semi sweet chocolate and then put it into a ziploc baggie with the tip cut off. I then put a swirl of chocolate on the top! Even with the extra step it didn't take long and it was well worth it. Plus it added something special for Christmas. Great recipe. Thank you!!!!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
So easy, yet so delicious. The only thing is that squeezing the juice from key limes was time consuming, but I didn't really mind since it turned out so great:) What a nice dessert for the summer.

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I thought this was a very good traditional lasagna. The only things I changed were: 1/2 lb of ground beef and 1/2 lb of ground pork, and I added about 3 leaves of fresh chopped basil. I used cottage cheese and blended it with the parm and the egg using an immersion blended to get the right texture. It was perfect, I prefer it with cottage cheese over ricotta:) Thanks for the great easy recipe.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I was very surpised at how great this was. I would say it was addictive...texture, flavours, smell. I had never cooked with quinoa before, and it went so well with the ground turkey. I don't know if I could go back to beef meatloaf. For the topping I added a bit of ketchup to the brown sugar and worchestershire sauce, then I broiled it for about 5-10 mins at the end. It was amazingly flavourful and juicy. The whole pan went in 1 sitting between my boyfriend and I:D

Apricot Baked Ham

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
I liked the base recipe and the use of the apricot jam and brown sugar. I used a Cooks Honey Spiral Cut Ham. I put a little gingerale mixed with a little orange juice in the bottom of roasting pan. I placed the ham on a rack in the roaster. I didn't use cloves, because I was afraid of an overpowering flavour. I coated the ham with glaze, then I used non coloured toothpick to affix the rtad. pineapple rings and cherries. I then tented the ham and stuck in the oven. I actually kept glazing every 30 mins or so until done. Ham was really good. Have used for many ham sandwiches, as I froze the leftovers:)

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
If I could give this more stars I would. I have tried making pie crusts a few times, with no success. I am proud to say that I have finally found my forever pie crust recipe. That's a big statement isn't it?! Well first a big thank-you to Ruth's Grandma for perfecting a crust. Normally I use recipe as a guideline and make quite a few changes along the way. I didn't change anything about this, I was tempted to use butter but stuck with the shortening:D I also did make sure the water was ice cold (put in freezer for about 1/2 hour). I actually found that the consistency was easy to work with, only put in the fridge for about 1 hour before rolling out. Also a tip is not to overwork dough. Trust me it will come together when rolled. I filled the crust with a lovely fresh blackberry pie. Hope this helps some people out there!

Turnip Casserole

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
I loved this recipe because it's flavours were very balanced. Not too sweet, just right. The turnip flavour was enhanced and at the same time, the bitterness that turnips can sometimes have was gone. Turnip is one of those vegetables that people forget about or have had turnips that weren't flavoured properly. If you like turnip make this recipe and if you're not crazy about it this recipe might make you change your mind:D Thanks Carol!
