Fresh Pear Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I was worried about that high temp, but it worked beautifully! This pie is amazing! I've made 3 pies so far; using different types of pears with different ripeness, from rock hard to very soft. They all turned out great, but the ripe pears are definitely the best. If you bake the pie a bit longer, maybe 5-10 minutes for the hard pears with foil over the top, it turns out really nice.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Yum! I added a can of rinsed black beans and sprinkled cheddar on top and it was delicious! Not too spicy - my DH added hot sauce to his liking. My 2 year old liked it too. Next time I'll cut my tortillas thinner and probably double the amount.

Lemon Chewy Crisps

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
The name says it all. They are good hot out of the oven, or out of the fridge. My DH likes soft cookies, so I tried to bake them less, but it didn't work - they looked done until they cooled, but they were still doughy. I just used the zest and juice of one large lemon, and they were delicious. Not the lemony zip from a lemon bar, but nice subtle, refreshing lemon flavor.

Ratatouille Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I love pasta cheese anything, but adding healthy veggies to that is great! I never knew about 'sweating' squash, but it really did the trick! Not mushy at all, just delicious.

Alex's Raw Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Excellent! It tasted so good out of the blender, I couldn't wait a full hour to chill it, but I managed to have enough self-control to stick it in the freezer for 15 minutes. What a delicious, easy dessert. We all loved it! For those who have complained, I would recommend using an avocado and banana that are at peak ripeness for raw eating - no black spots.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
Very versatile. We used all honey, doubled the peanut butter, and added 1/2 oz. of baker's chocolate. We added the peanut butter mixture to the cereals and mixed, then rolled it into balls. We call them meatball cookies, which the kids really like.

Gingerbread Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I made a gingerbread house out of this. It made nice thick, soft walls and tasted great. I love that it has no dairy, so the kids can eat the house 2 weeks later. Instead of the frosting, I used 2 egg whites and 5 cups powdered sugar for the 'mortar' of the house. It made clay-like icing that I rolled into ropes to hold the sides together. I wouldn't decorate with it, since it is too thick to pipe, but it is great for holding the house together, and especially good for kids because it isn't sticky at all, but more like clay.

Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
Soooo creamy and chocolatey! I used only 1/2 cup sugar, and whole milk instead of cream.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
This is more like a masala than a curry, I think, but it was delicious! I subbed 8 oz. tomato sauce for the cond. soup, and coconut milk for the cream. Not too spicy, so the kids could handle it. Definitely making this again!

Thick Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Wow! Incredibly soft and foolproof! Last year was my first time making sugar cutouts and I had a really hard time with the recipe I used. This recipe is sooo much better, great instructions, easy to mix, roll out, cut out, and great without any frosting.

Peppermint Eggnog Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
We served this without the rum at a Christmas party, and everyone loved it! Who would have thought those flavors would go together so well? This will be a new Christmas and New Year's tradition for us.

Creamy Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I didn't use any zest, but this is the best tasting, easy cheesecake I've seen. It is so smooth and creamy, and just as tasty as NY style without the huge quantity and expense. Perfect for our family.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I didn't have chives or onion powder, so I increased garlic powder and dill. I made it just now and it is delicious! I'm sure it will be even better after it sits for 30 minutes or more. Very close to a bottled ranch, I think.

Shortbread Cookies II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Crisp and buttery - I made almond and lemon flavored too, with great results. I rolled the dough into balls and flattened with the floured bottom of a glass. I made 3 dozen cookies with a 6-serving recipe.

Almond-Honey Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
The toasted almonds are great! I added 1 Tbs. water as suggested by other reviews, and used all whole wheat flour. This is a definite keeper!

White Bean Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Loved it! Used quinoa instead of bulgar wheat, and 1/2 parsley 1/2 mint, with a little cucumber added, red onion, and red bell pepper instead. Next time I'll probably use all mint.

Egg Free Whole Grain Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Can't tell it has no egg. I've subbed the cornstarch for egg, and it is almost identical.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I've made this for years. I always add more kidney and cannelini beans. I leave out the pasta and cook it separately so it doesn't get mushy.
