Simple Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
So easy and so delicious! The name suits this recipe well! I switched some ingredients to make this a bit more healthy. I used a food processor to mix the dry ingredients (but used less than 1/8tsp salt because there is salt in the spread I used), and then added Smart Balance Spread from the tub (8Tbl), and processed. Then I added yogurt/egg mixture, and processed. Then folded in the dried fruits. Baked at 400 for 15 min as the recipe stated, and the results were phenomenal! Simple and delicious! Definitely a keeper!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
This is THE recipe for pancakes! Although the batter was a bit too runny for my taste, the flavor was excellent! Delicious! The only change was that I did not have buttermilk and so mixed 2TBL vinegar with 2 cups of milk. I had this scaled down to 2c flour, 2c milk, etc., and had left overs! Next time, I think I will cut down the milk a little bit. Served this with a dolldrop of whipped cream, cut bananas, and grapes, drizzled with a little bit of syrup. Excellent! Even the non-pancake lovers admitted that this is delicious! Will definitely make again. Thanks for the great recipe.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
Excellent! I cut the salt in half, used a 14oz can of chopped tomatoes, added jalapeno instead of green peppers, and just used water. Came out delicious!

French Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Was too dense and too salty. I ended up using 5 1/4c flour. Did not change the other ingredients. However, the bread just had a salty taste. The crust was crunchy though. Have to give credit for that.

Almond Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but my tip on making this is to add some honey if the end product is too "dry" and so not so spreadable. The honey makes the almond butter a little sweet and that much more yummier! A great, healthy alternative to peanut butter!

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
These were okay. I boiled them but it seems like boiling them makes them bumpy and not very pretty. I baked one without boiling and they look more like the bagels they sell. However, maybe the authentic bagels look like the bumpy kind? The boiled ones tasted okay. Chewy exterior and soft interior. Don't know why they turned out not very pretty though. My bagels always look like this. Maybe I just need to work on it.

Soda Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Delicious and FAST! I didn't have buttermilk and so I used milk mixed with some vinegar instead. I also used Karo syrup instead of honey. After kneading the dough on my kitchen aid, I formed pretzel sticks. I brushed with milk, sprinkled some with grated parmesan an some with ground pepper before baking. The sticks were delicious! Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I did not boil them before I baked them but they turned out fine. These were quick and tasty. Would definitely make again.

Excellent and Healthy Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
Not the greatest low fat cornbread recipe... Mine turned out a bit dry and too brown. I think 400F was too hot and 25 minutes was too long. The taste was okay but not superb. Was a bit salty for my taste.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
Omigosh! Delicious! However, I did change the recipe a bit. I used 2 tbl butter and 1/2c and 2tbl applesauce to make it low fat, used 40g honey and 40g sugar instead of molasses, and only 2tbl white sugar. However, the bread was still pretty sweet! I also added 50g walnuts, 30g raisins, and 30g craisins. I also aded 2tsp ginger and 1.5tsp cinnamon and no cloves. I also reduced the salt a bit. I baked at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. The bread was moist and delicious! Next time, I think I will add more nuts. But the backbone of this recipe was GREAT!

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Omigosh! Excellent! So light and fluffy and delicious! But I did make several changes and did not use a bread machine. I used 1c water, 3c flour, 1/2c oats, 1tsp white sugar, 2tsp brown sugar, 1tbl butter, 1 tbl olive oil, same amt of yeast, 1/2tsp of salt, and used my Kitchen Aid to knead until elastic. And then I let it rise 60 min, punched it down, let it rise 30 more minutes, punched it down, braided it, let it rise 30 more minutes, and then baked it after brushing the dough with milk and sprinkling with sesame seeds for 30 minutes in 350F oven. Thank you for the great recipe!

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2007
I reduced the sugar quite a bit...and my cake turned out SALTY!!!! And so I checked my other cake recipes and others do NOT have SALT inside of them!! I think I will try reducing the salt next time to maybe 1/2tsp or even 1/4tsp! My "cake" tasted like sort of salty pancakes... :(

Michell Jenny's Challah

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2007
The bread was light, fluffy, and melt in your mouth good! Simply delicious! Just had to remember not to overknead...left the dough sort of mushy and not very kneadable with the hands before the first rising...but it was not too hard to shape after 60 minutes. The loaf was GONE in a few minutes!!!! Yum Yum Yum! Thank you for a great recipe! Didn't have to change a thing! I don't have a breadmachine but it turned out great!

Applesauce Bread II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
This was a great recipe but I made some revisions to cut down the calories even further. Also, I do not like "sweet" breads and this is why I cut down the sugar. Note that my version is NOT SWEET AT ALL Also I used my oven since I do not own a bread machine... I used 250g flour, 1 egg, 1tsp baking powder, 1/2tsp baking soda, 3tbl sugar, 1 tbl oil, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 200g applesauce. The trick to not making it dense is to not over mix the dough. So first, combine all the dry ingredients except the sugar. Then combine all the wet ingredients plus the sugar (separately from the dry). Then sift the dry ingredients into the wet and FOLD in with a silicone spatula. Do NOT beat the mixture. Just mix so that the batter is still lumpy but all the flour looks incorporated. Then bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes and check with a tooth pick. If you follow these tips you will have a light, not dense, bread to enjoy! :)
