• Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cookies

    Doug Matthews's rating:
    I love the Snickerdoodles but to be honest, the frosting was just a little too much. My whoopee pie loving daughter had trouble eating the whole thing. The Parchment Paper Cookie Sheets did make ... Read full review

  • Creole Crab and Corn Chowder

    Doug Matthews's rating:
    The next time I make this, if I do, I won't use a 1/2 cup of jalapenos. That just seemed like heat for the sake of heat. It also buried the paprika & Old Bay. I'll keep it for inspiration. ... Read full review

  • Jumbo Dark Chocolate Cookies

    Doug Matthews's rating:
    They were good but a little too cakey and not enough chips. I will add butter, bake less and add more chips next time. ... Read full review
  • It was good but in the future I will cook the onions ahead of time as they came out a bit on the crunchy side. I will also up the temp as at 350 for 30 mins, it didn't brown and there was a litt ... Read full review
  • We left the almonds out and this was still great. Very light. Almost reminded me of the innards of a spring roll. We will be making again & again (and I hate Brussel Sprouts) ... Read full review

  • Okanagan Peach Soup

    Doug Matthews's rating:
    Despite not having any fresh peaches (canned only) we gave it a try and I thought it was great. I may cut back on the curry a little in the future. I also plan on doubling the coconut milk. Than ... Read full review

  • Fruited Ice Cream

  • Crayfish Cornbread

    Doug Matthews's rating:
    My 3 year old daughter had a great time helping me fix this dish. I used my own basic cornbread recipe over on the breadrecipe site instead of a box of mix. Doused it in Tabasco. This one comes ... Read full review

  • Basic Corn Muffins

    Doug Matthews's rating:
    I have also been tweaking this recipe some by adding an extra quarter cup of cornmeal and substituting buttermilk for regular milk - it gives it a cakier appearance and moistens it a little. I c ... Read full review
  • Tortilla Soup II

    This has become a fall and winter staple in our household with a few twists. I use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth - a can of peeled plum tomatos and I throw in a avocado in the last st ... Read full review
