Perfect Sesame Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
To cut down on fat, I baked rather than fried this chicken, and it was still to die for! I followed all directions except when it came time to put them in the olive oil, I put them on my stoneware pan with all the marinade (which made for a nice breading) drizzled 1/4 olive oil over top, and baked at 375 for 47 minutes. I turned the chicken half way through baking. The dipping sauce thickened up just perfectly! I only used 1/2 cup of sugar and it was still plenty sweet. Thanks for a great recipe, my hubby loved it!

Chicken and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Great! I made so many mods... but it made the process simpler and healthier. First of all, I added 1 cup of corn, 2 cups of chopped kale, 1/2 cup of water to moisten the rice, and a can of kidney beans. I left out the butter and onion (Did not have an onion), so I chopped up the chicken, kept it raw, and threw EVERYTHING into a casserole dish, stirred it up, covered with foil (VERY important), and cooked for about 80 minutes. Only one dish, topped with sour cream, quite healthy and delicious! Keep an eye on the rice to see it does not run dry. If you have too much moisture at the end, take the foil off and bake for additional 5-10 minutes.

Lentil and Green Collard Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Good... but I don't really like collards. I also used chicken broth instead of water, which i would NOT recommend doing. It was MAJORLY salty. Next time, i would stick to water and cut WAY back on the salt.

Avocado Frappe

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
Perhaps I'm not too keen on avocados, but this seemed a little bland. I used fresh ginger and that taste didn't blend very nicely. My hubby (who is REALLY picky) actually like this more than me, but I added sugar and topped it with whipped cream. Not thinking I'll make this again, but it's definitely worth a try!

Almost Heaven Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
These are great! They DO require some skill (and patience!) so I see why people have botched the recipe. You need to be careful when adding the water, very slowly, and do not overmix. Allow to cool for quite a while. They remind me of old-fashioned pie crust, with the pie included.

Buckwheat and Bacon Side Dish

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
The bacon is so good! Doesn't make a whole lot by our American standards, but this could be a main dish for 2 people. Careful about wolfing this down too fast... the buckwheat is SOOOO filling, you could get a tummy ache! Thanks for the great recipe!

Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: May 1, 2007
absolutely wonderful. even my husband loved it! i jazzed it up a bit with chopped onions and celery (which did not soften much... but it gave it some crunch). Could be a side or even a dessert. I recommend this 100%!!!

Peanut Butter Balls II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Too sweet! My hubby didn't think so... but next time I make these I will only put in 3 cups of sugar and WAY more (2 cups) peanut butter. It could stand to have more graham cracker crumbs, too. I was able to make ONE bag of choc. chips last the whole time, but I added a little cream and oil for a smoother texture. I think that those will affect the hardening capabilities of the chocolate... we'll see! Good, but next time only 3 cups sugar!!! It's got potential.

Hot Chai Latte

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
SOOOO GOOOOD! I cheated a little... I just used a Tazo Chai tea bag, heated up half milk and half water, added 2-3 tsp of water, sipped, and relaxed. I actually added a little vanilla to sweeten it too. Thanks for the tips!

Honey Peanut Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
YUMMY!! But full of calories!! I changed the peanuts to 3/4 cups of chopped almonds, added 1/8 cup flaxseed, raisins, and used 1/4 maple syrup instead of honey, and after all the math I did I still wound up with 310 calories per half cup! This stuff packs a delicious punch, but watch your portions. The vanilla really ties it together. This would make a great gift for my health nut bro... who has a faster metabolism. Nice work!

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
Awesome. I used dry cranberries, and I know with fresh these would have been better. They were STILL fantastic, though, great recipe!!!!

Tasty Buckwheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
These are so good! My hubby adds a couple Tbs. of sugar to give it sweetness. We just used normal canola oil though. The buckwheat gave it a nice crunch though! Thumbs up!

Chocolate and Almond Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
SOOO Good! I do, however, have some tips for newbies (I myself was one when trying this recipe) 1. Have faith that the biscotti will harden when it cools... it also cuts better when cool. 2. Like the other suggestions, chop half the chocolate chips up in food processor with half the almonds... it gives nice color! Thanks for a great recipe!

Tahini Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
Super! And I felt ok wolfing them down cause they're so healthy! I used half maple syrup/half honey, and they were fantastic. They are MUCH better when freshly baked, and not as good cold. I'd make em again! *7 years later* Ok, forgot I made these, went rogue and added 2 eggs and 3.5 Tbs of cocoa powder. Also, used maple syrup instead of honey (cheaper). WAY better, and extra-double healthy! Even fed them to our 2-year-old for breakfast... she was just a twinkle in my eye when I wrote the original review :).

Rice Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2014
Gluten free, and you don't really miss the noodles! My hubby requested pepperoni on one half of this lasagna, under the top cheese layer. I added 2 little onions to the ground beef just to sneak in more veggies. Very good, excellent for leftovers. It is pretty oozie after you take it from the oven... so I let it set for about 15 minutes. Will absolutely make again!

Candy Bar Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Peanut butter + chocolate chips + sugary oatmeal you can't go wrong! This was great! Mine was a bit crumbley because I reduced the amount of brown sugar and corn syrup by about half. I also added about 1/2 cup ground flax seed for SOME nutrition. I added about 1Tbs. of cocoa powder to the "topping". Super good!

I added 1 chicken breast (chopped), LOTS of spicy peppers, replaced half the corn with creamed corn, and the BEST addition was a can of black beans, rinsed/drained. Then I cooked it to smitherenes~ the husband and I polished it off in one lazy day of movie watching! WONDERFUL recipe, thanks!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
Much better the second day, and as a filling for burritos. I tried to eat it hot with sour cream... like chili... and it was not so good. Good cold, in a wrap.
