Jif® Peanut Butter Granola

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I make this 2-3 times a week because I can't get enough of it! I have started making it in the microwave. I put the PB, honey and cinnamon in a glass measuring cup and put in the microwave for 1 min. then I stir it and microwave it for 1 more min. After its done I stir in the vanilla then pour it over the oats in a large mixing bowl. I've used the figs(they're very yummy) but I don't think its any better than a mix of raisins and craisins(what I usually use). I also always use diff. nuts because I don't like peanuts very much. I've used almonds, walnuts and pistachios that I roasted during the last 10 mins. of baking the granola. They all tasted great. All in all this recipe is very versatile! Sometimes I throw in extra oats (like 4 1/2 cups total) for a slightly dryer granola or I'll add these instant steel cut oats called "Coach's Oats" and it doesn't taste any different but is healthier. I usually use all natural PB (just mashed peanuts) and I haven't noticed a big difference between salted/unsalted or smooth/crunchy. It does taste sweeter if you use regular PB but its still delicious w/the healthy kind! Even reduced fat PB tastes great!.

Jif® Peanut Butter Granola

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This is my favorite granola recipe. Its really easy and tastes great! Its also very versatile. I did use figs the first time and they were good but I usually use craisins and golden or regular raisins.. mmm. I also never use peanuts since I'm not a huge fan but roast walnuts and almonds the last 10 mins. and then mix them w/the granola at the end. You can also do this in the microwave. Put the PB,Honey, and cinnamon in the microwave for 1 min. stir it and then put it in for another 1 min. Stir in the vanilla and pour it over the oats in a large bowl. I bake it for 30 mins, stirring every 10 and it comes out great every time. (It even tastes good when I burn it!) I usually use all natural PB but I think it tastes best w/the unhealthy kind!(Both are very very good, even reduced fat PB tastes great in this)

Moroccan Chicken and Whole Grain Couscous

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
I just made this tonight and really liked it. It is pretty much the exact same as a recipe I've been using for years from the Moosewood cookbook for "gypsy soup" except you use chicken. I didn't have turmeric (much to my dismay) and subbed curry powder which didn't detract from the taste at all. I did try adding raisins and didn't care for it. Probably because I am used to the gypsy soup recipe from Moosewood which does not call for them. I also served over quinoa due to having more nutritional value but think I would prefer it served just as a regular soup and not over a grain. The seasonings are fantastic and the Moosewood cookbook basically just has you use a green and orange vegetable. I love sweet potatoes or acorn squash as opposed to carrots!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Made some w/o chocolate chips and some with. Both fantastic. I was low on apple sauce so I subbed a baby food jar of squash and pears which didn't detract from the taste at all. I also used olive oil instead of canola and once again, still terrific! Even my picky DH really liked them.

Cherry-Pistachio Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I didn't have white chocolate chips so used all Almond Bark. I don't think I heated it up long enough because it didn't spread very smoothly into the cookie sheet and isn't as lovely as I imagined but it tastes really good. Also made some with dark chocolate and it was very yummy and loaded with antioxidants!!

Elegant Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Used the slow cooker and grape juice instead of wine. It was really sweet and yummy (cut out brown sugar). I just mixed all the ingredients in the slow cooker on high for 3.5 hrs for a smaller roast and it tasted really good. I would cut back on the fruit next time for a small cut of meat it was way more than I needed (just to save money ya know). Ate it w/bakers and everyone even the 1 1/2 yr old liked it.

Wicked Garlic Tofu Saute

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
*hint for the tofu* this is so much better if you can get the tofu as dry as possible. Try pressing it between two plates. Put the tofu on one plate then put another plate on top of it w/something heavy like some books or a watermelon top of it, then just dump the extra water out. I do it for an hour or so because I like the texture of the tofu to be dry! Great recipe!!! (not usually a tofu lover either!)

Naan

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2008
I used self rising flour and didn't add salt or baking soda and got a perfect amount of bubbling. I also cooked on a dry skillet w/a lid and only cooked for about 30-45 secs. on each side. We also left off the butter and dipped them in curried lentil soup (store bought), Very yummy!

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
**hot *** this should have a few little hot chillis by it because it is really spicy but delicious! It is not very soupy because thelentils absorb so much liquid, I might try doubling the tomatos next time which would hopefully tame the flame.

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
really yummy! I baked in a covered casserole dish for 40 mins. and it was perfect. I also added a third banana mashed in w/the milk and used only 1/2 c. of brown sugar and it was great. I also used a hearty whole wheat bread.

Bermuda Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
Made this for a church event and I got way more dressing than I needed. My dressing was very thick and kind of lumpy which wasn't as pretty as I would have preferred, but yummy nonetheless.

Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Made this twice. The first time I didn't roast the walnuts until they were aromatic and it was good but the 2nd time I forgot about the walnuts until I could smell them and I thought they were burned but... they were great! I also added spinach the 2nd time.. wow, made a great dish even better!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Tasted good, I added salsa verde instead of enchilada sauce and doubled all ingredients except for the liquid which is good because there was a lot of liquid. I also added some cornmeal paste (cornmeal mixed w/water) to thicken it. o yeah, and mine was a little too spicy so I threw in 2 heaping tsp's of cocoa powder and it was just right.

Italian Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
These were good w/the soup but kind of bland just for eating. Mine didn't look like they were going to be deep enough for soup by the time they had doubled in size on the last rise, but to my surprise they popped up while baking and worked well.
