Muesli

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2012
5 stars for muesli, 3 stars for this particular recipe. I just didn't like all the powder floating around in my milk or giving my yogurt a weird grainy consistency. I would simplify the recipe to oats, dried fruit, nuts and seeds. I also like to add fresh apples or pears.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Love it when I follow a recipe exactly and it turns out perfectly on the first try. I did follow others' tips to freeze PB cups before and after unwrapping, and I cooled the cookies in the fridge before removing from pan. Unwrapping all the PB cups kept my 3yo and 5yo busy while I made the dough (yes!). I doubled the recipe and got 73.

Fabulous Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
This salad is wonderful. To reduce sugar and increase calcium, I used plain yogurt and just added a dash of cinnamon and a squirt of lemon juice for flavoring (per serving). I plan to make this weekly as a healthy snack to have on hand. Sure, the recipe is not rocket science, but I wouldn't have thought to try it if it wasn't posted here, so thank you!

Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
These were great! I followed the recipe exactly, using 3 bags of microwave popcorn. This yielded 16 baseball-sized balls. I used the sink to mix, my crockpot would only fit half the recipe. I had to spray my hands with cooking spray between each ball. I added two drops of food coloring, hoping to get that pastel green shade like one of the pictures posted, but although the syrup looked quite green in the pan, by the time it was mixed with the popcorn, you couldn't even see the green. I'll use more coloring next time. I also had a bit of difficulty getting the plastic wrap to stick around the balls, since they were coated in cooking spray.

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
I left out the protein powder and used vanilla yogurt instead of plain, otherwise left everything the same. The consistency (just thin enough to easily get through a straw) and amount (16oz) were perfect. I don't like yogurt, but know it's good for me, and this is a way I can stomach it. I put the flax seeds in first and ground them before adding the rest of the ingredients, and this got them well ground. It was enough to fill me up for breakfast.
