Banana Prune Muffins

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Great Flavor! I made a few changes-applesauce for the oil, no salt, no baking soda, salt free baking powder, only used 1/4cup white flour-substituting 10 grain, whole wheat, oat bran and wheat germ for the remainder. I also added extra banana-using only very ripe ones. I also used only 1/4cup sugar. They were great. The whole family loves them. I may try next time to use less sugar since the fruits are very sweet alone.

Spiced D'Anjou Pear Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
Best bread ever!!!!! I love not having to wait for the pears to ripen. Wonderful flavor. I made a few changes-applesauce for oil, used 3 eggs, diced pears instead of slicing them, added pecans and baked in mini loaf pans. Hard to keep around once baked.

Fluffy Pancakes with Wheat Germ and Applesauce

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Super yummy! My kids and husband liked them. I substituted 1/4 cup oat bran for some of the white flour, used egg whites only, no yolks, and thinned with water no milk, and no oil-just applesauce. Tasted great, very filling. Will make again for sure. I have mixed up the dry ingredients into plastic bags so I only need to add wet stuff to make, much faster that way on the weekend for a quick breakfast.

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!

Sesame Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
Very Tasty! I took the advice of others and reduced the olive oil, thank goodness because I thought it was too much even reduced! I have made it several times and am using more sesame oil instead for the flavor and adding more cayenne for the kick. The kids balk sometimes, but us grown ups love it!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
Wow! I read all the reviews before trying this. I used only wheat flour and added 5T gluten, no butter in the bread and 1/3 of the salt. Awesome!!! My husband said it rivaled the bliss of eating ice cream, and that is saying a lot for him! Will make SO many more times, love it.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
Tasty bread, easy to dry out though. Easy to make. I did not use a bread machine. I also made it using cranberries instead of raisins, just as good.

Family-Style French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
SUPER TASTY! I have never seen my kids devour any breakfast food like they did this. I had to put it in two dishes, added nutmeg and baked for around 40minutes. I think I will use significantly less sugar next time as well as less butter. No need for any syrup. I did cook some pears and put those on top when serving. Plan on trying apples in the bottom of the pan too and using raisin bread.

Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Pears

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
I cut this in half and still had plenty for four, now have 3 servings frozen. It was very tasty, I made it as a dry run for turkey day. Will definately make again, but may use less sugar since it seemed plenty sweet when I had just added the pear. Kids loved it. I left the potatoes slightly lumpy and just mashed the pear.

Baked Salmon I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Good fish, the rice was a little too much orange. The aroma was wonderful when cooking. I will make again, only using less orange juice.

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2007
Awesome, but I did modify it. I used applesauce instead of oil, used brown sugar for the white, substituted more pumpkin for the 2/3cup water and added walnuts. It did not last long, well worth the effort.

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!

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.

Martian Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
Awesome! Kids and hubby love them! I made them twice last week, once with just semi-sweet chocolate and the 2nd time with dark chocolate. I spiced them up with cloves and nutmeg and replaced 1/2 butter with flax meal. Also used 2 cups zuchini and no butterscotch chips, but 1 cup of chocolate and only used 1/2 the sugar called for. They were plenty sweet. Thanks!

Hawaiian Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2007
Easy recipe, I did make changes though. I added flaked coconut along with the extract, oat bran, and 10grain flour for part of the white to add fiber. I also did not use all the sugar called for but added more banana. I do not have a bread machine, so done by hand and in the over, was also worried since it did not rise before baking as others have mentioned. But baked up just fine. Good flavor, it just seems to be missing something-maybe added nuts or another flavor? Will make again. Great starting point. Half of it is gone and it has not even cooled yet!
