Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I LOVE THIS RECIPE! I had to make this when I read the recipe, strictly because I didn't believe it could possibly be that good. I was shocked. Made this for a girls night, topped with a few strawberries. All of them requested the recipe. Perfect the way it is. I made it again and tweaked a bit for a lower calorie version to battle off some chocolate cravings. Replaced eggs with egg beaters, sugar with splenda and reduced the chocolate chips down to 150grams (little less than a cup) and added a 2 TB of cocoa powder. Still delicious and even lower in calories. FYI The reduced calorie version comes to around 1300 cals for the whole thing, I made 20 small cupcakes. perfect 65 calorie treat... or 130 when I have two ;)

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
great way to make raw broccoli a little more enjoyable. instead of mayo & white wine vinegar I use fat free yogurt, red wine vinegar, a little lemon juice & splenda. and I used red grapes instead of raisins . Everyone loved it

Orange Drop Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
Absolute Disaster! I'm sorry to say ... I followed this recipe exactly and every sheet of the cookies had spread so much... un-edible would be an understatement. Very disappointed.. complete waste of time.

Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Awesome!! The cookie itself isn't too sweet, so that with the combo of the filling is great. If only my house could smell the way it did while baking these ALL THE TIME! I read through all the reviews and did a combo of a few suggestions and it worked out perfectly. I up'ed the pumpkin to 1 1/2 c for the cookies. And for the filling the only changes were, I did 8oz of cream cheese and 4 tb of butter. I was very nervous because of all the comments about problems making the cookies even / shaped well etc. My batter wasn't runny at all, maybe bc of the extra pumpkin? I piped it out of a plastic bag. After piping the shape was a little hersey kiss like, so I sprayed my fingers with a bit of pam and smoothed out the cookies. Glad I did because they came out perfectly shaped! Cannot wait to serve these at my halloween party. Thank you!!!

Famous Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
yay! my sisters and I have been on a mission for a dressing like our fav sushi place for months, without any luck. I finally resolved myself that my only chance was to make it. This is almost identical to that dressing. SO good! Only made 2 changes and 1 was an accident. I forgot to get peanut oil so I used olive oil with a handful of crushed peanuts instead (it worked!). And I added an extra tb of ginger. yum!!!! thank you
