Mexican Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
This was a great base idea.. like others I altered to suit my taste. I LOVE kidney beans, so I stuck with that - lightly cooked the peppers and onion - and went ahead and added some cumin and chili powder. I also used oat flour and fresh whole wheat bread crumbs as a binder. 1/4 cup of salsa was all that was needed for me. Mixed it all with my hands, pan fried, and loved every last bite! Great left-overs.. mine ended up being 5 pretty large patties to fit our buns. Thanks for the idea!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I baked the first batch 15-16 minutes based on others saying they would bake theirs longer in the future for a more toasted exterior. All that really seemed to do was make a thicker shell layer over the outside. I baked the others for 13 minutes and the insides were the same either way, but the exterior bite was much nicer with the shorter time. Maybe if you want toasted, you could roll them in lightly toasted coconut that would toast fully in the oven? Also, I chilled my batter for a bit and sprayed my hands before rolling the dough into golf ball-sized balls. They ended up looking like the ones in the picture currently featured, (3 with 2 raspberries in case it changes) so if you want yours to look like that, that is how to get it done. :) They are super sweet - so i also dipped the bottoms of mine in semi-sweet chocolate to cut it a bit. These remind me of mounds bar filling, and probably would be awesome dipped completely in dark chocolate! FOR THOSE HAVING TROUBLE WITH REMOVING THEM... let them cool a bit first and they might just come off clean. Mine did. I was over-eager and went for them right away and only one wanted to come away with out feeling like it would tear to shreds. Some cookies just need a minute. :)

Shortbread Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Sadly, not what I would call supreme. This just was not the shortbread flavor I was hoping for. If I am going to splurge on an unhealthy cookie - it should taste awesome! I will say that they weren't so awful that I threw them away. I added crushed heath bars to the top before baking the rest of them and those were okay. I won't make these again though. Sorry.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
These were oddly on the oily side, but other than that they tasted awesome. We had a few feet of snow, so I oven baked rather than grilled for 20 mins in a 375 degree oven. I placed them in a shallow pan and poured all of the excess marinade into the bottom. Very moist and flavorful, just a bit oily. Plenty of flavors, so go ahead and omit ALL that extra salt! You won't miss it. I will reduce the oil next time and I can't wait until I can try them off of the grill! The leftovers never even hit the microwave the next day because they tasted so good cold!

Highland Toffee

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
So easy and SO GOOD! My 2 and a half year old son was just dying to try it, so when i cut it into the 4 squares I cut off little bits for us to taste. We ended up eating a whole quarter of it still warm and crumbly with no chocolate or anything! It is pretty sweet, so I decided to use semi-sweet chips over milk chocolate and will def add finely chopped walnuts for a more authentic and complex flavor. This is so quick and easy, and I always have all of the ingredients on-hand. I plan on making it when I have only short notice for visitors coming over as a welcoming treat. Haha.. people will think I am a doting hostess, but it will be a good excuse to make these quick delicious bars. Awesome recipe and thanks so much fo posting this keeper. :)

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
i was shocked at the naturaly beautiful edges that formed! i decorated gingerbread christmas trees with this icing and painted it on with a brush. it was easy and just fantastic to work with. i can't wait to play around with different extracts (as i used vanilla.. the only thing i had) and i plan on attempting some very fun designs with this icing. i will probably use it for life! i am sure you have to play around with the moist ingredients everytime. that's just the way it goes with some things!

Simply Sensational Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
i made these with 2 bags of mint chocolate chips that still equalled 20 oz. i froze the mixture and shaped into balls which i flattened between wax papers with a coffee cup. i dipped them into melted chocolate.. the first came out pretty, but unless i was willing to dirty about 20 forks i need to find a better way! it got too gloopy and hard to manage. i think i will try candy molds next time. i plan on melting chocolate and lining the mold, chilling, adding the filling, and then capping that off with more chocolate. i figure if i briefly chill that in the freezer, they should pop out nicely! THEY TASTE AWESOME BY THE WAY!! also next time - i will try PB chips for the filling. i can't wait to attempt them again! my head buzzes with new flavor ideas!

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
AWESOME! my 2yr old was wanting pancakes and i had no mix. i hadn't ever made pancakes from scratch and i am so glad i chose this recipe! lucky me, they were fantastic. i didn't have buttermilk, so i used the tip about half milk and half yogurt. blended for a minute to give it airy texture with a tsp of vinegar to sour the flavor a little. also used 1/4 cup oil instead of butter. i can't wait to freeze the extras to try toasting them later! thanks for these! i'll make them often!

Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
These are fantastic! My mom can't keep her hands off them and they are so rich, my 2 year old can't even finish a whole one! I don't really care for raisins in my cookies so I opted to use mini chocolate chips instead of the raisins and it was ALMOST too much for me. (not quite) Next time I might use 1/2 cup almonds and 1/2 cup mini chips. Very soft and chewy. GREAT COOKIE! Thanks.
