Banana Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Incredible! The crepe recipe was indeed a little on the greasy side so next time I will use less butter. For the sauce I used whole milk instead of 1/2 & 1/2 and honey instead of sugar and it turned out divine! My husband said they were the best crepes he's ever had!

Pasta Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Very good concept but needs a little tweaking. Next time I will double the amount of ricotta/mozz/egg mixture and add probably a 1/4 c more of sauce. I sauteed garlic, onion, mushroom, and zucchini and omitted the beef since I was having a vegetarian over for dinner. My 4 year old son had seconds AND wanted it in his preschool lunch the next day!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This sauce for this recipe has wonderful flavor, which I would liken almost to an alfredo sauce. I subbed 1/2 & 1/2 with whole milk, canned spinach for fresh, and bacon bits for real bacon. I also did not precook the chicken. Instead cooked with the spinach, shrooms, sauce, and raw chicken on 350 for 30 minutes (I had thick breasts) and then added the mozzarella and bacon to cook for about 15 minutes on 400. I served it with brown rice to put a little nutrition as this is not the most nutritious meal you can serve!!

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
Heavenly! Made a few changes: 1/3 c applesauce instead of butter, added 1/2 c bran and 2 tbs ground flaxseed, a tbs cinnamon, 1/2 c sugar instead of 1 c, 1/5 c honey, an extra banana, an extra tsp of baking soda, and a c of chopped walnuts! (also used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose) I baked for about 50 minutes in a 9x5 pan (Covered top with foil after 30 min). Delicious! :D

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
Excellent texture, very moist, and wonderful taste. I cut the sugar by half a cup b/c I knew I'd be using a glaze and also sugared the pan. I used frozen peaches and they were fine. I added a light rum glaze. It seems a lot of people skipped sugaring the pan, but I advise against skipping this step, esp. if you don't add a glaze. It created a wonderful sparkle to the cake! Great foundation recipe to get creative with!!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Easy, quick, healthy,and scrumptious! I left out the flour and added extra garlic...I used portibello mushrooms, which created an absolutely decadent effect! Served over brown rice. Finally, a sure bet when having the in-laws over for dinner! :D

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
Here's my best advice for this bread: double the recipe!! The only changes I made were that I used whole wheat flour, added about a teaspoon of vanilla, and substituted the shortening with unsweetened applesauce. The one thing I will change next time is that I will add less sugar...maybe I got lucky w/ a really sweet banana, or maybe it was the applesauce, but the bread was a bit sweet for my taste. Will make again 100x!

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Very, very good recipe. I used whole wheat flour, which makes the pancakes a bit more dense. I've used this recipe with blueberries as well as banana and I actually like it better that way, but that's a matter of personal preference. Using 1 full cup of milk proved to make the batter too runny. Had to increase the amount of flour so I would recommend using about 2/3 c of milk. I use honey instead of syrup, which really accents the fruity flavor.

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
Over all a very good recipe! I made a few alterations based on some other reviews, which I would suggest to others: Use at least 1.5 lbs of beef. Substitute regular soup w/ healthy choice low sodium (you could definitely get away with one can!) since this dish is salty enough. I used 12 corn tortillas, but I could suggest using more...even doubling the layers if you're a big tortilla fan b/c they seem to get lost in the mix. Definitely don't need 4 cups of cheese (I used between 2 and 3). I put a layer of refried black beans...one can...next time I will use 2 or 3 cans. I also baked this in a casserole dish at 350 for 40 min. Didn't see the point of using my slow cooker...unless you're planning to leave and then come back. My husband suggested using crunchy tortillas next time or even layering some Fritos corn chips! I will try that next time. The only thing I was disappointed in was that this dish turned out more like a dip than an enchilada casserole. Oh-and did I mention my 2 year old asked for seconds? :D

Virginia Apple Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
This recipe is not only super easy, but tastes wonderful!! I made some modifications suggested by another person...sub cinn. w/ pumpkin pie spice and vanilla and used half white sugar half brown sugar. I also made sure to distribute the apples evenly among the mixture, not in the middle as directed. Not sure why it is suggested to pour it in the middle...I didn't need any vanilla icecream! Next time I will use half wheat flour and half white just to see b/c I get the impression it will still taste just as good :) YA GOTTA TRY IT!
