Egg-Free Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2003
I'm on a new low-fat diet and homemade cookies are my biggest weakness, so I've been looking for some good low-fat recipes. I really wanted to like these, but after eating just one, I don't think I can eat any more of them. Hopefully, my little grandsons won't know the difference and eat them for me. I read all the reviews and knew they would have a different texture than regular cookies. They're probably fine for what they are meant to be, but they are too rubbery for me. I added extra cinnamon and a little vanilla and nutmeg, and left out the nuts. They were not very sweet-tasting and rather bland.

Brownie Mix in a Jar II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2003
I made these up and gave several as Christmas gifts. I simplified and just mixed everything together and put in the jars because I just couldn't get them to look nice when I layered the ingredients. I added a homespun jar topper and tied the instructions on with jute, and they looked great. But, the most important thing is everyone says they're the best brownies they've ever eaten!

Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
This recipe is so good! I made this for company and everyone loved it and had seconds. I will make this again, but will make a couple minor changes. I agree that adding a little onion and possibly chopped green pepper would make it even better. I used sage sausage because my family prefers it to regular sausage. I also needed to bake it about an extra 10 minutes, but the texture then was perfect. And it is so easy to prepare, which makes it a hit for me. Thanks for a great recipe.

Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2002
These were very easy to make. My dog seemed to really like them, but then, he'll eat anything. I'll continue to make them for him because I like the idea of giving him home made treats.

Best Buckwheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2002
I had bought a bag of buckwheat flour on a recent trip to a mill. I wanted to try buckwheat pancakes because I'd never eaten them. My husband and I both loved the taste. However, they didn't rise like the regular pancakes I'm used to. I've since learned that the batter needs to sit for a while before using it. So, I'm anxious to try again. Next time, I'll make the batter the night before and keep in the refrigerator.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2002
Super zucchini bread recipe! I had lost my old recipe, so decided to try this one. I'm glad I did. I've made 4 loaves and everyone has loved it.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2002
I loved this marinade. I used it on boneless chicken breasts and marinated them for about 4 hours. The flavor was excellent and the chicken was very moist and delicious. I scaled the recipe way back since I was only preparing 2 breasts. I'll probably use this often.

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2002
My husband loved this. I thought it was good, also, but a little too much thyme for me. I added a cooked, cubed potato to the vegetables. I'll make it again for him, but use just a little bit less thyme.

Oatmeal Maple Syrup Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2002
These tasted great, but were very messy. I may have done something wrong, but they would not hold together. They fell apart even after cooling. I added the nuts, and had real maple syrup on hand, so the taste was very good. I seem to have a lot of trouble with muffins for some reason, so the problem was probably with me and not the recipe.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2002
These cookies are absolutely wonderful. I've made them twice now. They are soft and chewy, just the way we like them. I like to use old-fashioned oats for the texture. I also added 6 oz. milk chocolate chips and they're great. Everyone that has eaten them raves about them. Thanks for the recipe.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2002
This was basically very good and easy. I had everything on hand to make it. However, I too, thought the soy sauce was just a little overpowering, so next time I'll cut back a little on that. I also added some pineapple juice, and it tasted great. I'll make this again.

Fruitcake

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2001
I thought this was the best fruitcake I've eaten. I was specifically looking for a recipe that called for real dried fruit, no candied stuff. My daughter-in-law and I made 3 of them a month ago. We waited a month to eat any. It is so moist and very spicey. I brushed on a little brandy every other day for about the first 10 days after baking, then just left it wrapped. Even family members who questioned why we would make a fruitcake liked this one. Wonderful!

Dried Beef Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2001
I've been using this same recipe for years. It's always a hit at gatherings. I don't use the monosodium glutanate, and sometimes I add a little garlic salt instead of onion salt. Either way, it's very good.

Sweet and Gooey Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2001
These were really very good. I let mine marinade for about 6 hours. They were so tender and juicy, and tasted great. My guests and husband loved them. The only low rating I gave them was quickness. They're very easy, but they took almost 2 hours to bake and get nice and brown. Well worth the wait though. I'll use this recipe again.

Hot Buttered Rum Batter

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2001
OH MY GOD, this is delicious!!! I like using more of the batter per cup though. I used equal amounts of rum and batter, then filled the cup with the boiling water. YUMMY!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2001
I was disappointed in this recipe. It sounded so good, but we found it a bit bland. I think that I may try it again with a spicier sausage. It was very easy and convenient to prepare the night before.

Rich Cocoa Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
As far as I'm concerned, this is the best fudge recipe. My mother always used this recipe when she made fudge for us kids. It's very rich and chocolaty, not like all those marshmallowy types. It can be a little tricky, but it's well worth the effort. Like my mother, I've always relied on the cold water test just in case the thermometer is off. The proper temperature is crucial to the success of this fudge.

Apricot Cream Cheese Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
Delicious! I made these to add to gift tins because I thought they would be pretty. They were also very good. I used apricot and also red raspberry preserves for a different color and flavor. Both were nice. The cream cheese makes the cookie very moist and creamy and the lemon gives a little extra zip.

Four Spice Crackles

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2001
Very good cookie. Very spicy and they stayed chewy and nice. I couldn't find coarse sugar, but then I decided to roll them in Christmas green and red sugar since it is coarse. They were very festive-looking and the coarse sugar adds a little crunchiness that regular sugar doesn't. Everyone in the family loved them, including my 2 1/2-year-old grandson. A new Christmas cookie addition to my recipe box.
