Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
My go to egg salad now! I usually add a stalk of finely chopped celery for crunch. If I don't have any green onion on hand a bit of diced sweet onion or shallot works as well. I LOVE that the lemon juice gives you a nice moist egg salad w/out having to use gobs of mayo. I usually end up using even less than the 1/4c of mayo. Deliious!

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
This was delicious! My husband had three helpings....my kids picked thru and only ate the penne, but at least they allowed all that spinach on their plates! I used whole wheat penne and uncured nitrate free bacon. Left out the olive oil as many reviews suggested. Topped with parm. Will definitely make again. I bet sliced black olives would be yummy....

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
It was just OK. Used many of the suggested variations. Kids wouldn't touch it. It was so easy and healthy I was really hoping to put it in the monthly menu but I don't think I will, too bland.

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
I found this disappointing in both flavor and texture. Two stars because it was very easy. I am still searching for a go-to banana bread recipe....

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Fantastic! Whole family loves it. I've made it twice now - once with pumpkin and once with organic canned butternut squash. Family loves it best when I toss in some chocolate chips :). I cut the sugar by about a cup and use 1/2 raw brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar. I also used half whole wheat pastry flour and half all-purpose. Added some vanilla extract. Subbed 1TBS pumpkin pie spice for all other spices. YUMMM!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
I was disappointed with this. Couldn't taste the sour cream or the bananas and it was not especially moist. 3 stars because my husband and daughter did like it. Made it in the bundt pan as shown.

Lemon Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I can't even count how many times I made this over the summer! So good. I made a few changes to make it healthier: whole wheat pastry flour instead of white, 1/4c raw sugar and 1/4c honey instead of white sugar, fill 1/2c with 2TBS canola oil and the rest with applesauce, zest one full lemon and juice 1/2 lemon, 1tsp vanilla extract. Sometimes I also add grated carrot and flaxseed. So delicious warm out of the oven with a touch of butter!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Yummy frosting! Worked great for icing and decorating sugar cookies. Love how it stiffens up without getting hard. Made it twice - once following recipe exactly and once using 1/2 shortening and 1/2 butter instead of all shortening. It tasted better the second way, I think.

Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Very good! I was working with a 3yr old and found that sticking the rolled out dough back in the fridge for a few minutes BEFORE cutting made transferring to the cookie sheet easier.

Mom's Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
So yummy! I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup brown sugar and used mini marshmallows as a topping. I could've eaten the entire casserole !

Colonial Hot Buttered Rum

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I was really disappointed. It was watery yet overly greasy without much other flavor. I couldn't taste the spices at all and definitely did get that "cinnamon bun" flavor that other reviewers mentioned. Was looking for a great hot holiday after dinner drink...I will keep on looking.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
I was so disappointed by these! I had really high hopes with all the good reviews too. 2 stars because, Yes, they are really easy and you probably already have the necessary ingredients in your pantry. BUT...they are bland. Very bland. I also cut the butter to 3/4 cup as per many of the reviews, but I would NOT do that again. My oats are a little too hard even though I cooked them the full 3min...there was not enough liquid to be absorbed w/only 3/4 cups of butter. Bummer!
