Wyoming Cowboy Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Made these for a friend's birthday in February and have had to make them once a month since-- they are amazing. Such simple treats, but with a great, complex flavor. You will not be able to eat just one! Follow the recipe exactly-- maybe add some ground flax meal to up the health of them-- and then enjoy ravenously!

Soft Molasses Cookies V

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
As with most readers, I loved these! I followed the recipe just about exactly-- only adding a little extra baking soda cause I like my cookies to be less flat and more airy/cakey. I would suggest refrigerating OVERNIGHT as it makes a huge difference in how they bake-- mine came out like happy little mounds of molasses goodness. :) Lastly-- used the melonballer trick from another user and it was awesome. Such consistent sized cookies! Roll them in fun colored sugar FTW!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
First off, I only used 1/4 of the oil. I also added 2 tablespoons of flax seeds to make it a bit more healthy, and also added about a teaspoon of cinnamon, and some quick oats to top the muffins before baking. They came out great! Super subtle sweetness. I made the mistake of using milk chocolate chips, which I now understand sink to the bottom of the muffin. But it's like an added surprise.

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
GREAT pancakes! What I did differently: added 3/4 tablespoon cinnamon, couple pinches of nutmeg and 3 tablespoons of organic cane sugar. Also- used 1/2 cup of cottage cheese (that was smushed a bit extra with a fork to minimize the lumpy-ness) in place of sour cream (didn't have any). Even with this change, they were wonderfully hearty and moist. Will definitely make again- with Stonyfield organic maple yogurt and walnuts. mmmm.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
Fantastic recipe! After recently returning to a vegetarian lifestyle, I've been searching for filling and nutritious recipes I can make on Sundays that'll last me as leftovers all week. This one is a definite keeper for my recipe book. Changes I made (based on the many reviews I read): Firstly, I browned the onions and garlic together in the olive oil to really bring out the garlic flavor. I used 11 cups of water, and 6 veg. boullion cubes, 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of both oregano and basil. I also added garlic salt, 3 bay leaves and some extra crushed tomatoes. I like my soup a bit more brothy, so if you do, too- definitely add more water/stock. It makes a difference. All in all, wonderful.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
I definitely should have heeded the advice of others and used the microwave to prepare the marshmallow/butter goop- my saucepan is going to soak for a few hours before I attempt to scrape the toasted sugary mess from the bottom of it. In anycase, the taste of these treats are divine. I used 1/2 cup butter, 4 cups marshmallows and 5 cups of chex cereal (3 cups wheat, 2 cups corn). The combo of these 2 different chex flavors is near perfect!

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
I was skeptical that this would taste right. I love coleslaw, and tend to like the moderately creamy kind. However, not having the supplies for a creamy slaw and with a 3/4 of a cabbage in the fridge, I tried this recipe out. I am SO impressed with how tasty it is. I followed the directions from other reviewers, and cut down on some of the ingredients- I used 3/4 c of organic cane sugar, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 3/4 cup of CIDER vinegar, and still used 1 tblsp of both salt and crushed mustard seeds (I sort of had to wing it. A rolling pin & a ziplock allowed me to crush it up for the most part!). I also opted to add about a 1 tsp of black pepper. I also only used carrots and cabbage, but goodness me- I will gladly be eating this for lunch all week...it makes a huge batch! Delish! I'll make again often!!

Mixed Fruit Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
this turned out decent...The choice of using cortland apples for this was a bad one on my part. Granny smith's would have been much better!! I'd suggest making sure the bananas are layered deep within the crisp as well...they taste funny when they dry out a bit and then are mixed with everything else. With some tweaking, this could be fabulous!

White Chocolate-Cranberry Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
mmm. these were devine! doubled the recipe and made thoughtful, homemade christmas gifts for my aunts! Piled high in a nice, clear cookie jar and paired with some gormet or homemade hot cocoa mix, and it became a treat-turned-gift that everyone was impressed by. Fantastic recipe for biscotti!

Quick Hoppin' John Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
this was absolutely fantastic!! really filling and flavorful! I, like many other reviewers, opted for spicy italian sausage and also added both onions and celery to the mix, which really added a lot of taste and body to the soup. The spicy sausage with this recipe is just a perfect pairing; I'd highly suggest it! And also, Uncle Ben's has a quick long-grain & wild rice that comes in a box w/ seasoning and it's really inexpensive...I noticed people saying they couldn't find this rice with the seasoning, but I'm just telling you all- it's out there!!

Upside-Down Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
this was a great twist on the standard muffin. the bottoms make these tasty treats tops!! Also, I'd definitely recommend using fresh peaches, not canned. i used canned and the peach slices kind of slid out of their places when turning out of the muffin tin. I think the fresh peaches would have held their form more while cooking, especially if arranged so they're vertical in the muffin tin, not horizontal.
