Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2014
The only reason I gave this 4 stars is because they were way too sweet, even though I reduced sugar by 1/4 cup. I can't imagine how much sweeter they'd have been if I'd used regular PB with added sugar as opposed to natural PB. I did use 25% white sugar and 75% brown. Next time I'll reduce sugar by half-- just a personal preference. Otherwise, these came out fantastic. Texture was perfect, and mine were done in 9 minutes, just slightly brown at the edges. They were crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside even when cooled. I will use this recipe for years to come. Thank you!!

Jasmine's Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
So good. I made two pounds of sprouts and subbed bacon as it was what I had on hand-- I used about half a package of low sodium bacon. I also salted the water and boiled for the full 7 mins and they were perfect for us. I didn't think my picky 6 year old would even try them, but she ate most of them (with a little encouragement). I will be making this again for sure! Thank you!

NILLA Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Ok, so I can't give a completely accurate review of the recipe since I used what I had on hand but the technique and finished product based on this were excellent! I used air popped corn as it says, but just used whatever a half cup of kernels made (that is the max allowed in my popper at one time.) I didn't have Nilla Wafers, so I just sprinkled some chocolate chips and chopped pecans on it before baking. I also sprinkled some salt on it before mixing it all up. While the chocolate chips didn't melt, the finished product was amazing and the huge bowl was gobbled up by my Sunday night football guests! It reminded me of Harry & David's Moose Munch. I am making it again for my daughter's teachers for Christmas and this time I will melt the chocolate and pour it over to make it more Moose Munche-y :) Definitely give this recipe a shot!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
I cannot say enough great things about this recipe. The texture was perfect, the blueberries evenly spread throughout, and the top was nice and crisp. I did not have any issues with the sweetness as some people did. One note, however. I followed the recipe to the "T," except that I made the foolish mistake of using margarine in the crumb mixture (since I had quite a bit in the fridge to use.) Not a great substitution on my part. You really need that real butter flavor (not the icky, fake, vegetable oil flavor in my margarine :-p) to complete this yummy muffin. Another thing--the batter is thick, but if you follow the instructions exactly, they come out as they should. Use a measuring cup, put in your 1/3 C oil, add the egg, and pour milk to reach the 1 C line as stated. It might be a little more than 1/3 C of milk but that's okay! The purpose of the direction is to get 1 full cup of liquid. I sprayed my pan like crazy and could tell that if I hadn't, I would've had sticking difficulties. Thanks so much for this recipe, I will be using it a lot during blueberry season! EDIT: These are 100x better the next day, if that is even possible!

Apple Brownies

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
Love love loved these!!! They were a huge hit in my house. I, too, diced the apples like some said (just preference) and left out the nuts because my dad can't have them. Made them in a muffin tin for individual servings. Wow. I could have eaten the whole batch myself!

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Everyone at my family Christmas party loved these! They were gone in about 5 minutes. I used my mini chopper for the sundried tomatoes--I only had dry ones, so I just added some olive oil and it was fine. I made it the night before so the flavors could meld and I'm glad I did. Yum!

Hot Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
This dip was simple and delish. The only addition I made was a sprinkle of ground garlic, and I served it in a pumpernickel bread bowl. I also used neufchatel cheese and skim mozz in an attempt to cut down the fat content a bit. I was worried that after being heated it would congeal when it got cold, but it stayed dippable and delicious the whole night for my New Years Eve guests.

Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
I love this recipe so much. It's very versatile in terms of using different veggies, and I don't usually measure them-- I just throw in a little of this and that depending on what needs to get used. I love the curry and cinnamon together in this dish, I feel like they bring all of the flavors of the veggies together. I use the Easy Pie Crust (whole wheat) from this site and my family of somewhat picky eaters loves it!

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
I was skeptical at first because I don't like the taste of frozen tilapia, and this seemed too plain to mask the fishiness... but boy was I wrong. I love this fish. It is tasty, economical, and quick & easy enough for a weeknight. Yum!!

Chicken Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Very good. Quick and easy with my mini chopper. Instead of the canned chicken, I used some deli turkey I had to use up. I also had to replace the almonds with toasted pecans because they were all I had on hand. Yum!

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
I love these things -- people think I'm crazy when I say the words 'beer' and 'margarita' together, but once they try them they're hooked!

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
I have yet to find the perfect cornbread recipe, until now! I've tried several recipes on this site, and no matter what, they always come out dry and crumbly. This recipe is moist and lovely. Thank you Tim, I will use this recipe forever and ever!

Black Bean Spinach Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
I really liked it a lot, but I had to add some water to the black beans to make them spreadable. Next time I will pre-bake the crust a little too, because the bottom crust was a tad bit undercooked even when the top was brown. Thanks for the recipe!

Teriyaki Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
Wonderful for my chicken & veggie shish kebobs! I used real garlic in place of the powder, and threw in a little pineapple juice as well. Let it marinade for about 8 hours and VOILA! delicious grilled teriaki chicken kebobs. I will definitely use this recipe again!

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Awesome, awesome, awesome. I have never had success with homemade pancakes until now! Usually they come out tough, but these were tender, fluffy, and delicious. Had no soy milk so I used skim. I put fresh blueberries and strawberries in them and served with light whipped cream. It was to die for!

Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
Very good. No need to dredge in flour as other reviewers suggested (if you're subbing breadcrumbs, at least). I actually found that they stuck better without dredging. Served at a birthday party with Pepper & Apple relish (bought at Pepper Palace). Perfect combo!

Aargau Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I liked this cake a lot. It is very different from the carrot cake I'm used to but it's good. Had a nice crisp texture on the outside but was moist on the inside. I added a sprinkle of nutmeg, used 1/3 c sugar, and didn't use the frosting (made it for my 1 year old). It was a good sneaky way to get in those carrots!

Pumpkin Pie for Dieters

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
I LOOVVEE pumpkin pie and this is stuff is pretty darn good! I used fat free sugar free instant cheesecake pudding and canned lite whipped cream instead of cool whip (hydrogenated oils, ick). The consistency was good, not too runny and not too thick. I plan on adding crushed graham cracker to the top before serving after dinner!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
These are a staple in my house - I make a big batch and freeze them. I use WW tortillas and low sodium soy sauce. I have made them both with black and kidney beans, and I prefer the kidney beans. These are healthy and delicious!

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
We LOOOVE these brownies! I added a little more cocoa powder (used Hershey's Special Dark) and some semi-sweet chocolate chips. Ooooh yeaaa.
