My Country Style Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
This had excellent flavor! The one inch cubes didn't seem to cook all the way in an hour...they were still a little pink. Next time I will add three cups water for the gravy, the gravy cooked away after an hour and was pretty thick, but I may have had it at to high of a temp. I don't think that milk is necessary as previous posters have suggested. I will be added this recipe to my tried and true recipe book, just with an extra cup of water :)

Sugar-Free Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
I made these cookies just as the recipe directed, although I didn't have raisins so I left them out. They actually turned out pretty good, I was a little nervous because of past reviews. A note to future reviewers. These are a healthy cookie; you can't try to compare them to a regular chocolate chip or sugar cookie for instance, they are not supposed to be super sweet. If thats the only kind of cookie you eat, you probably won't like these. That said, my family enjoyed these, they are slightly sweet, and where a definite hit with my two toddlers. I did try another batch using honey in place of half of the apple juice and I did not like that version. Anyway, I recomend this recipe (as written) to anyone looking for a good healthy cookie!

Fresh Orange Juice

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
This is excellent. It certainly doesn't need added sugar :) I did it by hand with a reamer which can be a little tiring on the wrist, but not bad. I don't like to use the microwave when I don't need to, so I boiled water in my teapot and let the oranges sit in the boiling water for a minute. Then I rolled them around on the counter until they felt softer. I plan on making this often!

Cornbread I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I hate to give a bad review, but this did not turn out at all. I double checked the recipe and I followed everything, I didn't read the reviews about the time and I wish I would have. I baked it for 30 minutes in my cast iron skillet, it did not raise at all, not one bit. It was also very dark brown on the sides and bottom. It was not even tastable.

Whole Wheat Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
These took a while to make (the process of rolling one out, while another was frying), but are very good. It did not take long to mix up the dough. After the first cup of water it took 1 tablespoon under a cup more of water, so just under 2 cups total. I fryed them on medium heat. I did not have a problem with them being real hard. They are not as soft as store bought, but definitely rollable. If you have about 2 free hours, I would recomend trying them :)

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
This was excellent! I used whole wheat PASTRY flour instead of regular whole wheat which gives these cookies an excellent texture (very similar to regular snickerdoodles). I used 1/2 teaspoon more cinnamon, the same sugar/cinnamon ratio I usually use (2T/1t). They seem a bit sticky when you are rolling them into balls, this is OK, they will turn out fine :) I did NOT press them down with a glass and they spread out just right. Like all snickerdoodle cookies you have to take them out before they look set, which was after about ten minutes for this recipe. I would highly recomend these cookies to anyone! They do NOT taste like molasses/gingersnap type cookies like some have suggested. They do NOT have a strong whole wheat flavor. They DO taste like snickerdoodles. Very good snickerdoodles :)

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
These rolls were a very light biscuit texture. My children and I loved them! I did make one change because I was out of mayo, I used 2 T. ranch dressing instead, which gave them a light ranch flavor (very good!) Since I don't use self-rising flour I used the Betty Crocker substitution of 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 t. baking powder and 1/2 t. salt. I will make these again :)

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
This recipe is great! I followed the directions word for word and I wouldn't change a thing. They are not to sweet (at least for us). I set the timer and let it boil extactly one minute, then took it off the heat and added the other stuff, which was pre-measured (peanut butter first, so it would melt). They set great and were not grainy! Definitely a good one :)

Cracked Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2007
This bread was great! It has a wonderful aroma that lasts. The crust is perfectly crusty. You don't even need to put anything on it. Plain is delicious!
