Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
Fantastic! These muffins are hot out of the oven and i have a third batch in right now. The house smells incredible! I like this recipe alot because of the high propotion of heart-healthy/good carb oatmeal and the low amount of oil (as opposed to magerine). I made some modifications - i added some shakes of cinnamon and some vanilla extract. I substituted orange juice for the milk (i wanted to keep them non-dairy and i did not have soy-milk on hand). I increased the sugar to 1/2 cup (i might not do that next time...) and i added a stuesel topping - a mixture of oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and earth's balance light margerine (i was pretty surprised the light margerine held the struesel together and kept it crunchy!) i baked it at 400 for about 20-22 minutes. I like the batter of this muffin recipe - i see myself using it to also make strwberry muffins, apple muffins, or just plain coffee cake muffins (no fruit inside - and alot of brown-sugar struesel topping! Spectacular. UPDATE: I substituted chopped apples for the blueberries - and they came out great!!! I tossed the apples with some lemon juice and a bit of sugar and cinnamon. I topped each muffin with a cinnamon-oatmeal struesal made from a mixture of oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and some low fat margerine. I baked my first batch at 400 -but the struesel started to get too dark quickly, so I baked my second batch at 350 - and increased the baking time by 5 minutes. They came out great and they freeze really

Chocolate Covered Marshmallows

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
I love making these! I don't like to use chocolate chips - as the liquid firms up too quickly. Chocolate chips have an added agent in them to keep its shape - I use regular melting chocolate instead which melts to a thinner consistency and remains "wetter" longer than melted chocolate chips. I dip the marshmallows 1/2 way in the chocolate and then sprinkle them with rainbow sprinkles. It is always a big hit! Sometimes I also add some pink marshmallows.

Angie's Dad's Best Cabbage Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
Fantastic alternative to a heavy coleslaw! I used a bag of coleslaw (grated cabbage and carrots) and 1/2 a bag of grated purple cabbage to add color. I used 1/2 the dressing and from that - only 1/2 the amount of oil (i used olive oil). The salad needs to marinate for a number of hours for the cabbage to wilt and soften up a bit! Wonderful recipe!

Excellent recipe! I used boneless, skinless chicken cutlets for this recipe and also added some freshly chopped basil. I made it on my stove top grill pan as it is not grill season yet. Very good!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This is my "go-to" chocolate cake! It is great and so easy to make! It is very chocolaty and extremely versatile - as I have made it in bundt pans, circle pans, 9x13 and even as cupcakes. The frosting is really good too - sometimes I use oil instead of butter as I am concerned whether the cake would need refrigeration after frosting.

Strawberry Tarts

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Very good! I made this as one large strawberry tart - and used "pecan Nut Crust" from this site. I added some lemon juice and a nit of ginger to the strawberry sauce which gave the sauce wonderful flavoring! I placed the strawberry sauce and then slice strawberries on top of the crust right before serving to prevent the crust from getting soggy.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
We love this delicious and sweet salad! I halved the dressing and used about 2-3 tbsp. olive oil instead of the regular oil. I too refrigerated the dressing a while before using it - the ingredients blended together nicely and it became a thicker dressing - requiring the need to use less of it!

Apple Crisp with Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
I love this recipe! I like the tartness of the granny smith apples and I mix the apples and cranberry sauce together instead of one on top of the other. I use 1/2 oil and 1/2 apple sauce for the crisp topping.
