Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
These were REALLY good and soft but kind of lacked a kick- I doubled the ginger and they still kind of needed more. Next time I'll triple the ginger.

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This was okay, definitely tasts healthy. Also, this dish is VERY high in fiber- watch out.

Creamy Buttermilk Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
MMM... This really is a great way to eat salad without feeling like you have to just dip your fork in the dressing to avoid counteracting the goodness of the salad. I even used fat free sour cream, and it was deeeelicious, and only about 55 calories per 2 tbsp! The flavors are great, but next time I might experiment with some dried parsley, or even celery flakes to give it a little more color.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
So good! Definitely half the oil and vinegar. Leave everything else the same for a good, strong flavor. A 16 oz package of frozen corn wasn't too much. I also used cider vinegar and it was still good... although it may be better with red wine.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
This is the best. Everyone in my family asked for the recipe. The texture is lighter and fluffier than most pumpkin pies (because of the egg whites)- delicious. And the streusel... absolutely delightful.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Pretty dang good flavor. Just make sure you have a LONG time to cook it. I planned according to the low end of the recommended cooking time and it was soggy. Everyone still said the flavor was amazing though.

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
OK the skeleton of this recipe is EXCELLENT. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because I thought they lacked something- so I added about a teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. They are moist and delicious. I might try to turn this recipe into a REALLY healthy cookie recipe and do half butter and half applesauce, and probably cut out at least 1/4 of the sugar- these are very sweet. Enjoy!

Baked Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Style

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
Good recipe, and so healthy. Although I modified it just a touch so it's not quite as healthy- I put in about twice as much cheese. I figured I could get away with it since the veggies are sauteed in cooking spray. Oh, and I added a whole green pepper, so maybe that makes up for the extra cheese :-) Great sauce though, really good flavors. A wonderfully- vegetabley dish!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
SO. GOOD. The streusel on top is to die for. I mixed yams with sweet potatoes to balance the sweetness and make the color more interesting. I also added slightly less than the called-for sugar. My family likes them a little more chunky so I mashed them just a little bit so they were like mashed potatoes with big chunks. A big hit at Thanksgiving dinner.

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
Such an easy soup. Turns out nice and hearty- in face, you could probably add some more liquid- I would recommend broth. I might also use a can of vegetable broth instead of 2 of the cups of water. The salsa is a good idea- it doesn't end up tasting salsa-ish. Good, hearty wintertime soup.

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
These pancakes are delicious. This recipe is probably enough to feed a whole truck stop though. I halfed it, using 3 eggs, and it still made a ton. Sooooo good!

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
This crust is wonderful IF a)you like thin crust and b)you don't really want any flavors from the crust. It is very plain but very good. If you like a thicker, more flavorful crust, this isn't really the one to make.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Good recipe. I would give it 5 stars after my additions: a can of ro-tel (it is spicy so maybe cut down on the cayenne if you don't like spice) and some salt and more garlic. I put it inside corn tortillas and it was delish! I can see using this as an enchilada filling with some sauce and cheese on top and throwing it in the oven on a busy night. I'm sure I will make this again, it was very easy and good.

Lemon Cream Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
I made this and it was great. However, I didn't let the pasta cook for 25 minutes, because it was starting to get soggy after about 15 minutes (package says to cook 8-10 minutes). So I just drained off the liquid and saved it for the next time I make this. Then I added about half the cream. So I have a question- if you cook the pasta for 25 minutes, won't it get soggy? This recipe has such good reviews and no one seems to have done what I did, so I'm curious.

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Fabulous! Of course it can be customized with whatever vegetables you like. The dressing is great. I would MAYBE add a little more sugar.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This recipe is a good start, but I modified it quite a bit. I used half-and-half instead of cream, and instead of 1/2 cup butter I used 2 T butter and 2 T olive oil (1/4 cup butter/oil total). Since it's winter right now and fresh basil is expensive, I used about 1 t dried basil. I also added another t of sugar to cut down the acidity. For me, cutting the fat by that much was not detrimental to the deliciousness of the soup! I think it would be way too greasy with 1/2 cup butter and heavy cream, and I'm not even a health nut.

Lemony Quinoa

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I'm giving this 4 stars because the recipe should say "Serve 24-hours later." It's soooo much better the next day. Since the celery and onion aren't cooked, it's just too crunchy and raw to serve same-day. I also added a touch of olive oil. Other than that, very good!
