I have made these 2 times, first time I switched out 2 cups of flour for spelt flour and the other with 2 cups wheat flour, both times they were delicious. (I liked spelt flour better). They were gobbled up lickety split for Christmas and even my MIL loved them!

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Wow. As others suggessted I tripled the marinate and quadrupled the sauce. Instead of water chestnuts I used onions and chopped baby carrots. I didn't have peanuts, so I sauted the onions, chili paste, carrots and garlic in oil and 1T of peanut butter. I served over steamed Jasmine rice, really, really good.

Sugar 'n' Spice Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
I thought this recipe was far superior in taste compared to other similar recipes. I only used walnuts and almonds (my preference) and since I didn't have orange zest I used a tablespoon of orange juice. I epecially liked the ginger. Since I eat nuts as a healthy addition to my diet, I will definately make again.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Everyone said = Really Delicious. this recipe calls for a vast amount of ingredients, so I cut back white sugar to 2 cups and used 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup applesauce in place of 1/2 cup of oil and had to use a little pumplin pie mix, which has a bit of sugar already in it. It made 32 muffins and I filled the empty muffin cups with 1/4 of water to even out the baking process. 30 minutes in 350 convection oven. MMMMMMmmmmmmmmmm

Pumpkin Layer Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Oh ya baby! This is ultimately delicious! I think even a 1/2 cup more of the pumkin mixture could be added, but zero complaints in taste and it was gobbled up.

Light Wheat Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
these taste fabulous, but they didn't get very big in the muffin pan, maybe 2" thick at most. That part was disappointing, but the taste made up for it.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I had no idea how easy making your own cranberry sauce could be, the only change to the recipe was I used Splenda in place of sugar. Served for thanksgiving and everyone was impressed.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Yum! I used Splenda instead of sugar and only baked for 5 minutes. I used it for a pumkin cheesecake from this site and it turned out delicious.

Runzas (meat pies)

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
My husband loved these! A child hood favorite food from his great grandmother,though called a different name, it was fun to recreate - I left out cabbage as great grandma didn't use it. 1 lb. of burger made 8 pies so I had enough dough left over for rolls, which my boys loved.

Potato Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2007
Biscuits are not our usual fare, however these were a wonderful treat for us. Everyone loved them and they were VERY easy to make, especially nice not to roll the dough out and cut. I am not comfortable with baking at such high temperatures so I cut it down to 375 and cooked a bit longer.

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
With the suggessted changes it's really good. I didn't have bread crumbs, so I skipped that part and added a can of 99% fat free cream of chicken. I used chicken 'strips' and sauted them with the mushrooms and garlic, baked for 30 minutes. Separated the chicken from the gravy and poured it over mashed potatoes. Very, very good

Peanut Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
I don't like picking on a recipe, but this was pretty bland and as I got deeper into the cooking process I realized there were hardly any spices. I remedied this by adding 1T oyster sauce, and sprinkling cayenne and coriander to taste. I also added diced yellow bell pepper, but yellow didn't do much for the color issue. I let it simmer for an hour and served it over noodles. After these changes I thought it was greatly improved, however my husband was not impressed.

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I baked with home-grown Fuji apples and omitted the raisins and walnuts and used 2% milk, it turned out really good. Though next time I will increase the sugar and cinnamon

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
Delicious! I tried this on a whole chicken, scaling the recipe down to 4 servings. It was not enough and I ended up with 2x the water called for. I let it soak in a large stew pot for 8 hours. It took about an hour at 325 in a convection oven. I cooked it beer-butt fashion, emptying the beer and using 1/2 can of the brine. it was really juicy and tender, and more flavorful. The skin was brown and crispy. Definately an improvement over the usual way of baking poultry. And it was not difficult in any way. I will try it on turkey next time. UPDATE: cooked an 18 lb turkey for thanksgiving, and wow! I did use 1/2 apple juice instead of all broth and similar spices on hand. At 300 the turkey would have been done in 2 hours...so I turned the heat down to 275 when the internal temp was 135 and it was done in 3 hours! the breast meat was REALLY MOIST...I found that amazing in such a large bird. Everyone at the table agreed it was a 5 star turkey!

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
We loved this soup. I didn't have all the spices so I used a curry spice which contained most of what was called for. Also I added a cup of shredded chicken breast and used 2 cans of pinto beans (what was in the pantry). I am not a fan of putting soup in the blender, but it was worth it. I also added salt as suggested and it really made a difference. Served with homemade bread. Great!

Easy Olive Oil, Tomato, and Basil Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
I thought this a mediocre recipe. I used 5 decent size tomatoes from the garden, added olives, 2x the garlic, lots of salt and pepper and parmesan cheese and it was still bland and boring.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
I wasn't sure whether to give this a 4 or a 5 because the taste was 5+, but I did make some reviewer suggested changes. Like using rice vinegar and using lemon juice in place of tamarind. I used 1/8 cup spicy oyster sauce & 1/8 cup soy sauce and cut WAY BACK on the oil. Since I was serving this with chicken satay I didn't add tofu. I had extra Peanut Sauce I from this site and drizzled that in with the pad thai sauce. My husband thought he'd died and gone to heaven, and so did I. It was unbelievably delicious.

Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
I followed the recipe as close as I could with what I had on hand. Instead of wheat germ I used wheat bran, which is naturally 'sweet'. Since my Labrador needs no additional reason to be happy I also left out the honey. Out of the 2 dog biscuit recipes I have he prefers this one, it's more peanutty. (I know I tried a bite). It only made 14 biscuits with a medium-size round biscuit cutter, so next time I will at least double the recipe. As for the cook - don't be stingy with the flour when rolling it out. thank you!
