Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
I totally health-washed this recipe and it still came out fantastically light & fluffy (as muffins). Used 3 c. WW flour + oat bran, cut salt to 1/2 t., cut sugar to 1/4 c. agave syrup+3/4 c. white sugar, cut butter to 2 T.+3/4 c. applesauce, left out lemon zest, subbed chia seeds for poppy seeds. So yeah very diff recipe but the base worked beautifully. Muffins were light 'n fluffy and very moist. 350 deg for 20 mins.

Apple Butter Spice Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
The recipe as written has 2x as much sugar as I'd want! So minus a few stars for that. I made it healthier with whole wheat flour, reduced the butter a little, plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and cut the sugar in HALF - it was still a little too sweet for my tastes. Otherwise it was moist and tasty, will make again - with less sugar.

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
The recipe's dressing proportions are way off, hence the 3-star rating. Taking down the sugar/oil level to make it healthier, I loved this salad. Will definitely make it again! Subbed a shallot for the onion.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2011
Delish! I recommend cutting down the liquid to 3 cups of broth (chicken broth worked great), 2 T. cider vinegar, and 1/2 t. cumin. Don't need 1/4 c. butter to brown the onions and garlic, I used 1 T. butter and 1 T. olive oil to make it healthier. No need to add salt either, there is enough in the broth and canned stuff. Great recipe!

Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Awesome recipe, made it almost exactly as the recipe directs but cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup - it was still a little too sweet for me, I'll go with 1/4-1/3 cup next time. No need to deep fry the chicken either, a thin layer of oil when cooking is sufficient. Will be making this again! Adding some veggies like broccoli and green onion would help too.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
The only change I made was the usual healthy substitutions - whole wheat flour for white, applesauce for all but 1/4 c. of the oil, and reducing the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. PHENOM.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I did not like how the coconut milk tasted with pumpkin, I prefer the Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread recipe - it's just a moist.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Just made the pancakes, and served with cinnamon applesauce instead of the syrup. Used a boxed multigrain pancake mix I had on hand, so for dry ingredients I just added some sugar and cinnamon. Also mixed the wet ingredients in a blender to get them super-fluffy. Awesome! Light and fluffy, delicious. I'll keep this recipe around for awhile!
