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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Garlic Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2007
Very tasty and easy to make. I tripled the garlic called for and had awesome results! No bread machine so it was done by hand.

Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Great. I did end up making about 4 times what the recipes called for. I added 8x as much garlic, 4x onion, a little cayene pepper, and MRS Dash original seasoning. Used only zuchini. I did add tofu for protein and used bread crumbs instead of flour. They look like when you put them together, my husband thought I was joking when I said we were going to eat them. But I sprayed tin foil with nonstick and placed on the grill-perfection! Us grownups loved them, kids not sold, but will learn to love em since I am going to make again. My husband suggested a terriyaki sauce with them.

Gourmet Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
All I could think when eating the first piece was "best pizza ever". I made my own dough, used Spectrum Naturals dressing, lowfat mozzarella and added olives. WOW! Next week when I make this again, we are going to add artichoke hearts and maybe a little more sauce. The kid even ate it, which suprised me most. Oh, the chicken I used was done in the crock pot with the Garlic Survival Co's garlic marinade. Super moist and tasty chicken that way.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Sugar 'n' Spice Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
Great! Very addictive, there goes the diet! I did add 2 cups more nuts than called for, ommited the orange and added cayene pepper. I used pecans, almonds, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, cashews. I made them as a bridal shower gift, were a hit and almost gone before the party ended. I gave the bride the recipe so she was still happy!

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!

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!

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.

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.

Lemony Steamed Fish

Great fish!! I used fresh halibut, very good. My husband did not believe it had no butter or salt(I left it out). Will make many more times. I did make it in a dish. Thanks!
