Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IX

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I would have given it 5 stars except like other reviewers said, it was too much oil. I could see it on top of the cookies even though I modified the recipe. I'm glad I cut the oil with 1/2 oil 1/2 unsweetened applesauce. I do that in a lot of recipes. Next time I will use flax seed meal to replace even more of/eliminate the oil. Otherwise this was a great recipe for dairy-free oatmeal raisin cookies.

Homestyle Potato Chips

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
HOLY MOLY! I didn't believe this would work, but it did! I just bought a slicer & thought I would look into a potato chip recipe. My husband & I were both really skeptical that these would turn out. My whole family LOVES them! We did what one reviewer said and used cooking spray instead of oil in the bag. Sliced the potatoes, put them on a paper towel (they only stuck a tiny bit after cooking-easy to peel off) sprayed the spray on, put salt/seasoning on them and nuked them for 3-4 minutes until brown. PERFECT! I tried using a plate to cook them on and all the heat went to the plate and it didn't work. Definitely use a paper bag/paper towel/paper plate to 'cook' them on.

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
EXCELLENT! I sent the recipe to my Filipina friend and she said it's really close to how her Grandmother makes it so I gave it a try. I did make a few slight changes per other reviewers. My kids really dislike rice noodles, so we just used Asian noddles. I also used 1/2 sesame oil and 1/2 canola oil; green onions for the onions (since I was already cutting it up to make lumpia)and added a little bit of chicken broth(didn't measure, just eye-balled it) so it was a little more wet and not so sticky. I think I also doubled the garlic, but that's only because we REALLY like garlic here!

Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
I TRIPLED THE RECIPE since I only had a big can of pumpkin puree (and no other pumpkin recipes I felt like making at the time) and made medium loaves as my reg. large loaf pan is MIA. 1 can of pumpkin puree makes a triple batch and when I did that I lowered the sugar only by 1/2 a cup total and only used 12 TBSP of water instead of 18 (since a can of puree is technically 3 1/2 cups I felt that was enough moisture in the batter). It was excellent, not too sweet-just right! I also used brown and white sugar in the recipe instead of only white sugar. Also added dried cranberries to the batter. Gave one of the 4 medium loaves to my neighbor and they too LOVED IT! I love when I find dairy/egg/soy free recipes because I can make them for my kids who can not have dairy and share the recipe with family members who have dairy/egg/soy allergies. Yes, I changed it quite a bit, but I don't usually follow recipes to a T.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
If I could give it 6+ stars, I would. This was AWESOME!! I have been searching for a sweet, moist cornbread for years! I like my cornbread on the sweet side, so it was perfect. Hey, if you don't like it sweet, use less sugar to what you like. Perfectly moist also. I guess I just don't see how it could be dry??? Mine was cooked perfectly in an 8x8" glass Pyrex dish, in a gas oven for 33 minutes. They ONLY thing I added extra was 1/2 a cup of sweet corn (well, because I like my cornbread that way and it wasn't going to alter it much). You have to take the pan off the heat and let the butter/sugar cool off a bit before you add your eggs, like many reviewers say, but I already knew that. Heat+eggs=cooked eggs.... not good. I will make an extra batch dairy-free next time for my 2 & 3 yr old who can not have dairy. I didn't notice the review on making it dairy-free until after I had already baked mine. We made Cajun pork chops, green Italian salad (family recipe) and grilled peaches with it tonight, but I think I would love it with chili or some nice pulled pork BBQ! YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
This was quite possibly the most INDESTRUCTIBLE MUFFIN EVER!!! I was rushed through the grocery store and completely forgot to get the flax seed and the oat bran, but I really wanted these muffins badly this morning. So I substituted wheat germ for the flax seed, ground up my own oats for the oat bran and sub'd 1 cup vanilla soy milk for the skim milk (dairy allergy in the family) and did not add nuts (nut allergy here also). The cook time was actually 25 minutes, not 15-20 like the recipe states. My 6 yr old, 3 yr old and 18 mo old loved them and begged for more! I love it because without the nuts they are only 3 WW pts per muffin and these are some sizable muffins. Definitely a keeper muffin recipe. Maybe next time at teh store I will remember to get the ground flax seed.

Spinach Quiche with Kid Appeal

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2007
This was easy to make and very good! I just altered it a tiny bit by adding 4 cloves (instead of 1?) of minced garlic near the end of the spinach/onion cooking time and we used mild cheddar instead of mozzarella because we were all out of mozz. We also used 1.5 cups of fresh chopped spinach. My vegetarian sister, meat eater hubby and veggie-phobic friend all throughly enjoyed this.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Awesome recipe. We subbed Bailey's Irish Cream for the milk and it was excellent. Add about 20 minutes more to the cook time though. Everything else we did to a T.

Kickin' London Broil with Bleu Cheese Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
We used a 2 inch NY strip and it was excellent. LOVED the rub. Definitely not overpowering for the steak. The blue cheese mixture on the other hand was too much of a flavor for me. I did not have any chives, but I bet it would have been excellent with that. Next time I think I will use the chives, less blue cheese and perhaps Gorgonzola instead of blue cheese. Highly recommend this recipe if you want something that tastes more upscale without the price tag. :)

Cake in a Jar

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2007
My sister and I made this with Cinnamon Swirl Cake mix to send to my husband who is in the military overseas (for his Birthday) We sent him 2 jars and tried one ourselves. It really does seal! One thing is you have to use no more than a CUP of cake batter or you will be cutting the top of your cake off before you put the lid on. Now if only I had a food saver bag to put some icing in there for him!

Reviewed: May 10, 2007
I LOVE this recipe! I tweaked it a little by adding extra garlic, seasoned bread crumbs and I use fresh spinach, but still EXCELLENT! I'm making it tonight again!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
They were great! Subbed 8th Continent Vanilla soy milk because of DD's milk allergy and used 2TBSP sugar instead of artificial sweetener. Made the kid's without blueberries(weird ones, they don't like blueberry pancakes, just plain!) and they still were great!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
I came across this while looking for a dairy-free, non-bread machine bread to make at for my little girl who has food allergies. Holy WOW! I was suprised at how good this is. It reminds me of home because I am from Pennsylvania and I could easily get Amish baked goods. I followed BreadMan's tips and also substituted King Arthur's Whole Wheat White for ALL the white flour it called for and it was still wonerful! I am planning on making some cinnamon raisin bread out of this for my 2 year old daughter!
