German Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
First time fudge maker here. My husband had asked for some and I have to make it due to peanut allergies in our son. I could not find allergen safe german chocolate, so I subbed some milk chocolate and dark chocolate chips. Also used walnuts since Hubby likes them better. I lined my dish(13x9) with foil too. Lots of stirring! So worth it! Amazing and easy. I had no idea fudge was so simple. This will make it into my xmas cookie trays for sure! I had to freeze most of it since we were eating to much so quickly. Excellent no fail from what I can see.

Cinnamon, Spice and Everything Nice Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
I liked this one, others loved them at my family event. I did make a few changes-only used 1 cup butter, added flaxmeal to replace other amount. I used 1 cup each white and brown sugar, blackstrap molasses, and added cyrstalized giner bits to the last few batches. There was no way this works to roll into balls using butter. I chilled it after 2 trays had cooked into flat slightly lumpy things. After chilling and changing to my smaller cookie scoop, they were better, best after adding the ginger bits. I will make again doing aditional modifications though. I thought they were too greasy/oily from the butter and the chips. I plan on cutting the butter to 1/2-3/4 cup and adding more flaxmeal &/or applesauce to get some rise and not flat cookies. These require the ginger bits for my house to really enjoy them. They are all gone so they only lasted 2 days! I am passing the recipe on to my aunt who loved them.

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
So easy to make! I think it took less than 10 minutes from stepping in the kitchen to have it in the oven. I did add a whole 14 oz can of milk, and about 2 cups coconut. I mixed the melted butter with the graham crackers before pressing in the pan. I also added some coconut butter to the crust melted along with the butter. I had no semi sweet so I used dark chocolate chips. I lined my pan with foil and sprayed that with nonstick too. Super easy to clean up that way. I let them cool about 7 hours before I cut them. I took them to a family function, first to be eaten! Excellent reveiws by all who ate them. It has already been placed in my recipe book. Next time I make them I will use less butter and more of the coconut butter to get that extra flavor. I would even make these using oatmeal as others stated if I was out of graham crackers, seems like that would work great.

Caramel Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
Amazing! I did make a few modifications. I doubled the crust mixture. I used evaporated milk for the caramels and added 1/2 cup to the crust while reducing the butter to 1/2 cup. I used oat flour too. This is great since it is allergen friendly, no eggs and I can omit nuts as needed for other family allergies. I lined my pan with foil and sprayed with non-stick. MUST let cool completely before cutting to get best results. I put it in the fridge but could not wait long enough. Edges were cold but center was warm. For the topping I placed it in the fridge while the bottom was cooking and then flattened in my hand to form small pancake like disks and placed on top, pushing it into the caramel. Excellent-already put in my permanent file!

Pecan Squares Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
WOW! This was amazing! I love the flavor of pecan pie, but have always thought the middle was too gooey. This fixes that! I surprised my husband with this recipe since his favorite is pecan pie. These lasted only 2 days! Amazing. I made them as written with no issues. Excellent, even the kids who have refused the pie on prior holidays ate them up!

Kitchen Sink Cookies

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
They are still baking and we have almost finished off the 1st sheet! I used butterscotch, dark and semi sweet chips. WOW! Super sweet and tasty. I reduced the butter by 1/2 cup since we were out and subbed some flaxmeal. The kids helped put them together and are really enjoying eating them. I will most likely not be able to comment on how they keep since they should be gone by tomorrow. Will make again for sure.

Dilly Bread

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Very tasty bread! I subbed 1/4 cup quinoa flour for white. I let it rise in my preheated clothes dryer. That worked great. Lite texture, a little oily. I think next time I make this I'll use garlic instead of dill. Might make it again tomorrow!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
I used a Dr. Oetker Organic Marble cake mix with coconut butter and 2 eggs. I did add 1 tbsp extra virgin light olive oil since it was dry as a bone when mixed. The kids seem to like these, but I do not. I am not a cake fan at all, and thought this might be a way to have a good use for a cake mix. I will not be making these again. I just found they taste too salty for me. I will take the time to make cookies the old fashioned way. This one was just not for me. Simple and easy just not the thing.

Apple Sticky Buns

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
Very easy to make. The dough is divine! I like that much better than the topping. I think that there is too much topping. Overpowers with the butter taste. I will make them again but reducing the butter content, maybe use coconut butter/oil that way we have some health benefit.

Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Super tasty! I doubled the recipe to start with based on reviews of how quickly they were eaten. My selective children even ate them! 3 & 5 yr old. Next time I will make them healthier though. But quite the indulgence for all that butter! I ate them plain, my kids put applesauce and cinn/sugar sprinkles on them. Very good. Will make again for sure!

Banana Date Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
WOW! I had overripe bananas and did not want to make bread or cookies. Found this one and it is already in the recipe book. I am eating my 4th piece now! I did make a few changes. I used extra light olive oil instead of butter. Reduced the sugar by 1/2cup and used 1/2 brown/white. I replaced the almonds with walnuts and added coconut. I did not ice it at all. Super yummy. I do think I will reduce the amount of sugar by another 1/2 cup next time. The dates make it plenty sweet. If I was to ice it for taking it to an event, I would definately reduce the sugar. Oh yes, I mashed the bananas. I used 3 very ripe ones.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2009
I had 3/4 can of evaporated milk left over from making carmel nut brownies. This recipe looked good. I made it with a few changes due to what I had on hand. I used french onion dip packet with about 8 chicken breasts. I used 2 tbps butter and the evaporated milk with the low fat cream cheese and chicken flavored soup and added sliced fresh mushrooms. It was super! The grown ups in our house loved it. The kids ate the chicken and that was all. I usually make the Easy Chicken from this site, but I think we like this one better. The chicken was able to be cut up in bites not shreaded since it was not soaking in liquid while cooking. That seems to work better for the kids.

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
We were out of power for 7 days now. Kids and I wanted cookies. Found this and made it on the woodstove. WOW! I did make changes due to allergies and tastes. I used Peabutter for the peanut butter, added shredded coconut, and about 1/2 cup Artisana Cocao Bliss (coconut butter and cocoa). I used 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup brown. These are amazing. Super tasty and very easy to make. I was suprised. I have never done a no bake cookie before. Plus, these are egg free so another family member can eat these since she is allergic to eggs. We have a peanut allergy so that is why I subbed. These would also be good with soynut butter as well. There are hardly any left. I have already added this to my recipe book!

Skillet Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I came across this when looking to use some dates. We lost power 5 days ago and so no xmas cookies were prepared. I just made these on the wood stove. OMG! These taste like pecan pie! I love them. The kids did not care for the texture, too young. We will be lucky if they make it through the day! I may add cocoa next time for some chocolatey flavor. SUPER!

Impossible Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I came across this recipe idea when looking for an egg free option for another family member. I had noticed that my kids were eating out the filling of my pies and leaving the crust. It seemed a waste of my time and resources to keep making crust with the pie. I made this yesterday and we only have 1/2 the pie left! It is wonderful. It is a little firmer than the traditional recipe. I think it has excellent flavor and texture. I plan on making it again but reducing the butter by a tablespoon, just to reduce calories. I only changed the spice mixture, I used the traditional amounts of cinn, ginger and cloves. My kids ate it all and there was nothing but clean plates all around. I placed this recipe over the tradtional recipe in my book!

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Best ever! My husband was complaining about having too many chocolate selections in our upcoming xmas trays. So, this sounded good. Boy was I correct. My son has a peanut allergy, so finding crystalized ginger was tough. But I found the BEST ginger from The Ginger People. Super tasty, best I have ever had. These do take planning ahead to have your ginger supplies ready and to wait for baking. Well worth the effort. My husband is eating all the extras I have right now! My daughter is trying to keep up with him! I will make these many times again. The only thing I did in addition to what the recipe states is that I rolled the tops in sugar before baking. Made them a little fancier.

Double Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I was nervous about the large amount of butter used in this, plus the volume of cookies to make. I almost halved the recipe, but am glad I did not! These are amazing. I used 1 3/4 cup butter, adding 1 cup flaxmeal to replace it. I also subbed 1 1/2 cup brown for the white(only that amount since I ran out). I also added 1 3/4 tsp peppermint. I subbed 1 cup 10 grain flour as well. WOW! I am cooking them for more than listed. Mine are good at about 12 minutes. I have a convection oven and my family likes them crisper. They are STILL cooking now! I have hardly made a dent in the batter. Make sure you have lots of time for baking when making the full recipe. I can see how rolling them in some colored sugar would be great for the holiday presentation. I plan on freezing these to give as gifts for upcoming parties. Will most definately make again!

White Chocolate, Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
Yummy! These taste like small bite size brownies! I did make a few changes and plan on new ones next time I make them. I used less sugar since white chips are really sweet. Only 1/2 cup brown and 3/4 white. I used malted barley flour only. I cut the butter in half and used flaxmeal instead. I added a few toasted pecans chopped. This seemed very dry but tastes great! Next time I am going to sub some coconut butter for 1/2 the butter as another reviewer mentioned. That sounds fabulous. oh, I only used 10oz of white chips and that was almost too many.

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Very moist! I almost ate it without adding the bbq sauce. I used a butt roast. I think it was too fatty for my tastes, I will use a leaner cut next time. I used 2 12oz bottles of Amy's Organic BBQ sauce. It was great served with sweet potato fries and onions on a whole grain bun. The kids were not very keen, but us grown ups loved it!

Pumpkin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
This was ok. I needed to make a pumpkin pie and only had the 29oz can. Left over pumpkin lead me to this recipe. I used about 1 1/2 cup pumpkin and added pumpkin pie spice along with having to use silken tofu for the egg, added toasted pecans and dark chocolate chips. I also cut 1/2 the butter and used flaxmeal. They were just too cakey, was too soft. I liked the flavor. I am not sure if it was the tofu I had to use or not. I might try again using egg next time. I added extra oatmeal to the last batch and that helped a ton! Still soft but more firm than gooey.
