These came out tasting like the orange cinnamon rolls my mom makes on Christmas morning. Deeeeelicious! I absolutely loved the cinnamon roll texture, and the frosting is to die for! I used a spoonful of orange juice concentrate (probably a tiny bit more than a tablespoon). If you are not a big frosting eater you could probably cut the frosting recipe in half, although I wouldn't recommend it because it's so good you'll want to pile it on. Be aware though that any leftover frosting won't keep in the fridge. The only changes I made were no nuts because my husband is allergic, and I added 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice. Oh, and don't be afraid if the dough seems stiff. I actually broke a spatula in half stirring it. My recipe made 24 TB size cookies.

Black Bean Pizza

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
Wow! The only changes I made were to use three cloves of garlic as another review suggested, and I used mozzarella cheese and canned tomatoes from the garden with 1/2 tsp. basil and 1/2 tsp. italian seasoning (instead of the italian diced tomatoes called for). We devoured this! Next time I may add some olives as well. Use the drained sauce for dipping the crust! We also make our own pizza crust that I think added a lot It only takes about 10 minutes to make: In a small bowl mix 1/2 C warm water, 1 TB yeast, and 1/2 T sugar. In a separate bowl mix 1.5 C white flour, 1.5 C wheat flour, 1/4 C oil, 1.5 TB sugar, 1/2 T salt and once that's well mixed, add the yeast mixture and knead for a few minutes. Roll out on floured surface and follow the recipe. PS-I used this as a spaghetti sauce too and it turned out great! Just don't drain and serve over noodles.

Lemon Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
As suggested by others, be sure the cream cheese is fully softened, otherwise you get lumps in your pie. I made this with 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 TB sugar, 1/2 cup lemon juice, and 3-4 drops yellow food coloring. A sliced kiwi on top also adds a great touch. Yuuuuuuumy!

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
The best cornbread I've ever had! I've found that 1/2 cup butter is plenty. Also, I just mix the wet ingredients and then add the dry instead of doing all the alternate mixing. Turns out just great for me! My husband and I like this so much because it's not dry like so many other cornbread recipes. Everyone we have made this for has asked me for the recipe.

Country Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2009
These are the best ever! I make them all the time, but as muffin tops rather than muffins. I use 1 cup white flour, 1 cup wheat flour, and 1 cup oats. I substitute applesauce for the oil and add chocolate chips. They are also great with cream cheese frosting. My husband is always asking me to make these.

Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This is my husband's favorite recipe ever, but I do something different with the rice. I use regular rice (not instant) and omit the water. Instead I add a can of evaporated milk with the soup mixture before pouring it over the chicken. Cook for 2 hours at 275 and it doesn't get much better! I've never tried it with the parsley, but maybe I will the next time I make it.

Yummy and fast! I would reduce the cornflakes to 3 c. and make the crunches bite size. Put them in the fridge right away to set, and serve them cold. I didn't like them as much hot, but once we tried them right from the fridge, my husband and I were hooked.

Melt in your Mouth Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
We make these every year for Christmas, and I know how to make these even better! For the frosting, mix 3 oz. cream cheese with 1 c. powdered sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, and two drops of food coloring (I usually do green). Flatten them with a cup covered with a cloth over it dipped in flour before baking. They shouldn't be golden when you take them out. They still look pretty white, and I let them cool on the cookie sheet before frosting them. Yum yum!

Iowa City Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
This is our new favorite cookie recipe! The texture of the grape nuts really makes it what it is. We made them even healthier by using 1/2 the butter and replacing the other half with applesauce. I also like to double the recipe and make a few batches and then freeze some of the dough for later use. We also eat the dough straight from the freezer. :)

Oatmeal and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
I would not recommend this recipe. It has good flavor but too much of a tomato taste for us.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
This recipe is so easy! It doesn't take 45 minutes either. I always make this when I have leftover rice, even if it's been in the fridge a few days. Mine always gets thicker before 20 minutes is up, and I add either nutmeg and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. So good, and so much less maintenance than other puddings I've made!

Ricotta Fettuccine Alfredo with Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2008
I really liked this recipe. I didn't use the broccoli, I used cottage cheese instead of ricotta, and I added a bit of basil. The only thing I would do different is add a bit less pepper.

Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
We really liked this recipe, but found the sauce to be very strong. I didn't have any low sugar jelly, but I think I would use that next time so it wasn't quite so sweet.
