Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
The first time I made this dish, I did the substitution of apple sauce for oil and changed nothing else. It was quite tasty, especially the second day, but on the first day I found the texture with all rolled oats to be a bit too chewy (that did improve by the next day). This time I made it with half quick oats and half rolled oats and it was just right. I also substituted half of the sugar with Splenda with no change in taste, making this a bit healthier than written. Great recipe and easy to make. Raisins or cranberries work great with it. And BTW, it didn't come out too soft either time and could be cut up into bars for a take-along breakfast.

Green Bean Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
I reduced the olive oil to 1/4 cup, the balsamic vinegar to 3 tablespoons, and increased the blue cheese slightly, to about 1/3 cup. I also used walnuts as I didn't have pecans on hand. Plenty of salt with the cheese, so I only added black pepper. Not 5 stars since I had to make those changes, but definitely a good place to start.

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
I make the quick red beet egg recipe elsewhere on this site and like to start with perfect hard boiled eggs. This recipe truly gives a perfect hard boiled egg if followed exactly. I always started my eggs in cold water and turned the heat off when the water started to boil, so I tried to use that technique with the ingredients in this recipe - the result was the usual eggs that are hard to peel. Apparently the eggs really do have to be put into the boiling water and as one reviewer stated the eggs should really be at room temperature when they go in (I tried it as written one other time with 7 room temp eggs and one refrigerated egg - the refrigerated egg was the one that the shell broke on early in cooking). So, if you follow this recipe just as written, you will indeed have perfect hard boiled eggs. One other thing I do that may not be necessary with this recipe is to shake the pot right after I drain the water, which cracks the shells a bit and lets the cold water I add get between the egg and the shell for easier separation.

Cucumber Cooler

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2007
Not bad with these alterations: 1/4 c. lime juice, 1/4 c. water & 4-5 ice cubes. I added some mint leaves as well. Make this in a blender only or it will be like mulch. Splenda substituted for the sugar makes the recipe much healthier. I can only see making this if trying to use up cucumbers or serve a novelty drink. My husband said a shot of tequila would improve it greatly :-)

Sugar Free Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
I made this with regular sugars and it was moist and delicious. I suggest baking it 5-10 min. longer than recipe calls for. This one's a winner!
