Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Loved it! It probably would have been amazing without my changes, but this is what I did: -Used 3-day-old french bread (most of a loaf) -Used a 2qt 11x7 pan -Used only 1 block of cream cheese (was perfect amt. for this size pan) -Used 10 eggs; made sure I really mushed that top layer of bread cubes to get coated in the egg, esp. in the morning before baking -Sprinkled some cinnamon & sugar and some of Penzey's cake spice on the top mid-baking (it was an after-thought and a good one!) -Dolloped 2 Tbsp butter over the top out of oven I didn't make the blueberry sauce b/c I had some leftover from another recipe. It had lemon and an edge of salt--good! Served with warmed blueberry sauce and warm maple syrup. Yummmm!!!!

Granola Bars III

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Great granola bar! Just the chewy-yet-holds-together snack we were looking for! I cut the brown sugar down to just a little over 1/4C, substituted sunflower kernels and some shredded coconut for the nuts (hubby's allergic), and didn't have honey so I used brown rice syrup instead. Sugar could probably even be reduced further. Baked 25 minutes and they were excellent! I can see taking this recipe in MANY new directions playing with mix-ins!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I doubled this recipe to use as a main dish for my family of 4 (husband who just ran 16 miles, hungry 4 yr old boy, 8 yr old girl, and a very hungry Mommy) and we still had leftovers for lunch (or side dish at dinner the next night). Changes: Did NOT double the beans--2 cans was plenty, even when doubled. Added a bit of chopped orange bell pepper when sauteing, and then a can of Rotel tomatoes w/ the liquid. It was a delicious meal. Served w/ tortillas and avocado.

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
Fabulous! I followed the advice of other reviewers: -Halved the sugar, and used 1/4 C Splenda & 1/4 C brown sugar -Substituted out half of the butter for 1/4 C applesauce -Baked for around 30 minutes and it came out perfect--crispy edges/crust, almost as if there were nuts in there, and soft center. -Used raisins the first time I made it and it was so yummy--they plumped up and were fat and juicy. -Poured about 1/4 C cold milk onto the piping hot oatmeal in the bowl. So delicious. -Once I made it I forgot the vanilla--and I missed it!! Vanilla is key. -This is my go-to breakfast at least once a week, and is even great as a snack cold or room temp.

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Like another reviewer I slathered the loin in yellow mustard and spices to let it marinate. I seered the loin in hot oil on all sides and placed in a stoneware covered baking dish. I tossed the (unpeeled red) potatoes w/ the spices and didn't boil--I just placed them in the dish w/ the loin. I baked @ 225 for 6 hours, although it was probably a bit overcooked and should have checked @ 4-5 hours. VERY tender nonetheless; meat shredded apart easily, it was juicy, and leftovers were still great the next day.

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Wow! I don't care if this isn't technically a "Philly cheesesteak"--it's a delicious sandwich. Used sirloin and cut on the diagonal in thin strips. Seasoned w/ grill & Italian seasoning. Cooking time on stove was all of 7 minutes, all told I think. Used a provolone/mozzarella shredded cheese mixture. The garlic mayo was what did it, though! Thanks for a great sandwich!

Chicken Biscuit Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Definitely a go-to recipe for leftover chicken. I do make some changes, though: -I times it by 1.5 (x2 would be fine, too) and put it in a 13x9 dish -I use 1/2 butter, 1/2 olive oil (but I don't think you need to use as much as the recipe suggests) -I add thyme, sage, rosemary, and use white pepper vs. black, and next time I'll try garlic like one reviewer suggested. -I use frozen mixed veggies. -I use my own Betty Crocker baking powder biscuit recipe, cut out, place on top, and bake @ 375 for 40 minutes--comes out perfect every time.
