Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I have never made pumpkin seeds before. But am beggining a new tradition, with this recipe! Super tasty. I only sprayed my pan with olive oil nonstick and used that to "melt" the sugar. It was great, only used 4 tbps sugar and that was more than enough. Great recipe. Will do again next week!

Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
Very simple and easy to make. Time is all-lots of peeling and slicing. I used 26 apples, only 4 cups water, 1/2 brown and 1/2 white, extra cinnamon and nutmeg. Smells wonderful. Tastes the same. The kids want to just eat it out of the pot! I used a stock pot since that was all I had, worked well, just needed longer to cook. I am going to use this to make an apple pancake, also from this site. Also plan on using for topping for french toast. I won't actually be making any pies! family does not like them. There was a bunch of extra fluid, even reducing it as much as I did. I let it continue to cook down after removing the apples, I now have a nice jar of apple syrup! Ready for those pancakes and french toast!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Tasty! I looked up egg free for my newly allergic sister in law. This seemed odd to just add hot water, but it worked. I used 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 flaxmeal, only 1/2 cup brown sugar, oat flour for regular, dark chocolate chips and left out the raisins. They could be crumbly, mine stayed together ok. I think the whole cup of butter would make these perfect, but had to sub for health reasons. Very good, I am sending some of them with the recipe to my sister in law!

Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
YUMMY! I have a sister in law recently allergic to eggs. So, I wanted to find a cookie she coule enjoy that will not make her sick. This is it! I used only butter, a little extra vanilla, dark chocolate chips, oat flour, and nonfat plain greek yogurt. very easy to put together. I read many of the reviews before making. DO not over cook! I made the 1st batch at 10 minutes, 2nd 12 and 3rd 14 minutes. They do look under cooked, but once cooled all the way are PERFECT! My family does like crispy so 14 minutes was ok. I have a convection oven so my temp was at 350. I will make again, but may sub some flax meal for 1/2 the butter to lighten them up a bit. I was also thinking about adding some mocha pudding mix too. I have printed this recipe and am mailing some cookies and this recipe to my sister in law to enjoy!

Spiced Pear Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Very tasty. I had about 15 over ripe pears and used this to make the bread. I did not use oil, I melted butter instead. I also used 10 grain flour and added toasted pecans. The bread was very moist. It made 4 mini loaves and 1/2 tall round cake pan full too. I have already added it to the recipe book! Will make again too!

Baked Apple-Pecan Maple Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Very tasty! My kids loved it! I did make a few changes based of other reviews, and will make more now that I have tried it once. I doubled the recipe, I do not used packaged mixes, I use the recipe from this site for Fluffy Pancakes with Wheat Germ and Applesauce. I had 2 cups of homemade mix premade so I used that. I whipped the eggs white seperately to add some fluff. I baked it in a cake pan with about double the apples and probably 4 tbps real maple syrup. I also used toasted pecans, 1/2 cup. I also used more milk than called for since some folks had said it was dry. I think, in my case, it felt dry because my mix fluffs so thick that the gooey goodness only gets on a small area of the cake. Next time I am going to put the apple layer in the bottom of the pan, pour 1/2 the batter on and then put another layer of apple mix on topping with the last of the batter. It looks marvelous out of the pan. Will make again for sure!

Cheese Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
Very easy, had all ingredients on hand. No problems with sauce at all. I did not add more salt at all. Great smoothness and worked well with the broccoli and the left over noodles. However, my picky kids would not eat it. I think I will try it with other cheeses next time.

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
Very easy to make. Here are the changes I made: 4 bananas, 3 diced apples, 1/2 cup toasted pecans, 1 cup applesauce, 2 tbsp melted butter, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2tsp nutmeg, 1/4tsp allspice, 1/2cup honey, 1/4 cup coconut, 1/4cup flaxmeal. I baked one batch as listed above and the kids would not eat them. Even after I let them cool before putting another in the oven. I think it was a texture thing, they like all the ingredients seperately, but not in this combo. I added chocolate chips to the rest of the mix and they ate a few of those. This does taste very sweet even with out the chocolate chips. I do miss the little crunch from other cookies. I do not think I will make them again simply because it is not healthy for me since I am the only one eating them!

Hawaiian Bread III

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
WOW!!! Ok, I made a few changes. 1 3/4 cup butter, 1 3/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cup banana, 20oz can of crushed pineapple, slightly drained. I used 1 cup 10grain flour, 1 cup quinoa flour and 2 cups white. I also added 1tsp coconut extract and 3/4 cup shredded cocunut. I think the magical trick to making these melt in your mouth is to really cream that butter and sugar like it says too. That helps these fluff up beautifully even with less butter than called for. I made 4 minis loaves and 12 large muffins with this recipe. I am guessing the loaves will freeze well and the muffins will be gone today! Will make again for sure!

Honey Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
Great base for starters. We all liked the honey flavor. I did make a few changes. Only 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup flaxmeal, no water, subbed oat flour for the all purpose flour and added about 1 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips. I cooked them for about 15 minutes, a little crispy. perfect-I made these as "princess" cookies for my daughter. We will make again!

Cow Pies

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
My son is allergic to peanuts. I used this recipe and a jar of chocolate soynut butter. I also subbed 3/4 cup flaxmeal for 1/4 cup of the butter, omitted the corn syrup, reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup of each, added roasted salted soy nuts and used Enjoy Life allergen free mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. I cooked them for 11-12 minutes and flattened some with a fork while cooling them. VERY tasty. Excellent for allergy sufferers. Next time I make them I will try using the Golden Peabutter to replace the peanut butter. I think I will reduce the sugar used next time more since they were still plenty sweet, probably because the soynut butter is sweetened already. Raisins will make there way into this too. Great base allowing for many variations based on tastes and dietary needs.

Pineapple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Very easy to make. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 flaxmeal instead of shortening. Whole family loved them. They got soft and crumbly after a few days. No nuts due to allergies, just coconut.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
This system does not allow for enough stars!!!!! I have made them two nights in a row. My husband and I ate too many while making them and did not have enough for our cookie trays! I did run out of peanut butter cups, so we subbed dark chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. We liked them that way too. Very yummy warm, I actually have not had one cool...yet!

Italian Anisette Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2007
Very easy to put together. Kids loved them! I was very surprised by that since they had never eaten anise. 8 minutes is no where near done. More like 12 minutes is great cause then they have a little crisp to them. I used the frosting and made red and green for the holidays. If the hubby likes when he gets home, will most likely make again.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
Super Tasty! I did make a few changes: subed oat flour, did not add cloves, used only 1/2cup butter and 1cup flaxmeal, only 3/4 cup sugar, I used 4 super ripe bananas and added 1 cup white chocolate chips. They were baked last night as I was getting the kids ready for bed. They were all gone this morning! I have already bought more bananas today to make these again for xmas gifts. Mine did not spread at all, possbily due to my changes. Next time I think I will use only 1/2 cup sugar since the bananas are sweet alone and the chips add a lot of flavor too.

Molasses Cookies VI

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
These were super easy to make. I had some kid helpers that made my liquid mesaurements off, so I did have to add a bunch more flour to get something I could roll out, but after 20min in the freezer it was just fine. Great tasting and soft and chewy. Not too sweet which was nice, we did add a little piped sugar cookie fosting. I added a touch more ginger than called for. This is a great addition to my holiday cookie selection.

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Not enough stars available! So yummy. I used Caramoo caramels cut in half, green and black dark mint chocolate squares and Endangered species mint chocolate. The mint choco ones were awesome! The carmel was good too, but the dark choco in the middle with the mint made me forget about my diet! My nex thought will be to try junior mints or some healthy version of that with no artificial flavors. The dough really does need to be super chilled. I had a hard time with the first two trays, but then just scooped out enough in my palm for each cookie and rolled it from there. These will make great xmas gifts, very nice looking when baked.

Soft Chocolate Mint Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Very simple and easy to make. I thought the peppermint was a little strong, overpowering the chocolate. The kids loved them, I however was not overly impressed. Probably will not make again since I really want the chocolate to be in the forefront.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
WOW! Super tasty, I did make a few changes based on other reviews. I doubled the pumpkin and chocolate chips. Subbed flaxmeal for 1/2 of the butter, added cloves and ginger. I, amazingly, have to say it had too many chocolate chips. Great flavor, I really enjoyed them so did the family. I will make them again but will use raisins instead of chocolate chips.
