Cinnamon-Raisin Yogurt Biscuits

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2015
I added 1 tsp orange juice concentrate to the dough and omitted the frosting. I also shaped the dough into a big circle. The kids loved it! They called it dessert pizza.

Tomato and Garlic Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2014
Wonderful way to use garden tomatoes! I used basil-infused tomato paste and added a splash of balsamic vinegar at the end.

Apple Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
I used sugar-free applesauce and only 1/2 cup natural peanut butter. To compensate for the lack of sugar in these two ingredients, I upped the brown sugar to 2/3 cup. They were plenty sweet. I served them for breakfast with smoothies, and the kids loved them! These are going on the breakfast menu!

Peruvian Arroz con Pollo

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
Amazing! I used one entire bunch of cilantro, just chopped about an inch off of the ends of the stems. The stems have great flavor that doesn't need to be discarded. My husband served a mission for our church in Peru and was very happy I learned how to make one of his favorite dishes. Thanks, Katie!

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Added zest from one orange, and replaced 3/4 tsp of the almond extract with vanilla so the almond wouldn't be overpowering. Very popular with the kids!

Koshary

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Absolutely amazing. I made plain brown rice in my rice cooker and stirred in some butter and Better than Bouillon when it was done. I also added a little Better than Bouillon to the tomato sauce. I used 1/2 teaspoon cayenne in the chickpeas so my kids wouldn't complain, and they had a gentle heat. I didn't think there were enough noodles, chickpeas, and tomato sauce to add to the lentils and rice. I would double the chickpeas and noodles, and double or even triple the tomato sauce next time. Makes a ton, but I was happy because I got to eat the leftovers for lunch all week!

Cinnamon Pear Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
Amazing! My kids went crazy over this. I used pears in their own juice and plain yogurt with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Even with those substitutions, I lowered the sugar to 1/4 cup. It was still very sweet. We don't have an ice cream maker, so we made the frozen yogurt in a bag. I filled a plastic gallon bag half full of ice and added 1/2 cup rock salt. I divided the yogurt mixture into three quart bags (I sometimes double bag to guard against leaks) and added them to the gallon bag. Then, the kids and I wrapped the bag up in a towel and tossed it around for about ten minutes. It was a fun activity for family night!

Pumpkin Chip Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
I make these muffins unfrosted because they're healthy and my kids love them. I use all whole wheat flour and replace half of the oil with applesauce. I also kick the spices up a little: 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp cloves, and 1/8 tsp ginger.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I made this recipe a long time ago using the advice to mix the bean mixture with the sweet potatoes. I almost didn't make it again, but I had all of the ingredients on hand last night and decided to give it another try. Delicious! Keeping the sweet potatoes and the bean mixture separate made all the difference.

Naan

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I should have read the reviews that compared these with flattened, sweet dinner rolls. They aren't bad, but they are not authentic and do not taste like naan. Will not make again.

Banana-Chip Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
Love this recipe! The oats give the muffins a nice texture. They almost fooled me into thinking I had added chopped walnuts. I usually omit the chocolate chips (to give more focus to the banana flavor) and add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.

Cranberry Walnut Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
I'm giving these 4.5 stars because I felt they were a tad too sweet. I loved everything else about them. Please use fresh cranberries! They are delicious, and the orange flavor is delightful. FYI, these cookies don't rise very much because the leavening power of the baking soda is somewhat neutralized by the cream of tartar and the refrigeration time.
