Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I'm Gluten, egg and dairy free. I used Smart Balance for butter, Gluten-free Bisquick for the baking mix and dairy free choc chips. I also found the dough to be crumbly so I added 1/4 to 1/2 C applesauce and that helped a lot...and I can't taste it either. The dough tastes great! And the cookies are a bit crunchy on the edges but wow, they're great!! :) Thanks!!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
These are truly addictive! I follow the recipe except I leave out the chili powder (I don't like chili powder). The first time I made this, I wasn't too sure about the first few bites. But it grew on me and the next day, I was craving them again. Thank goodness for leftovers. My picky 5 and 8 yr olds like it too. Some reviewers said the baking doesn't matter but I say it's essential! Gives all the mushy potatoes and beans a little crunch. I tried them once without baking (when I was in a hurry) and I'll never do that again...they still had great flavor but they do need that crunch! Great recipe!!

Deep Fried Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
Followed directions as written. Flavor was good but the batter never got crispy. It was more like a pancake-wrapped mushroom. I like a crunchy outer. I also missed the beer flavor so next time I'll look for a beer batter for my shrooms. Dh liked them as well but wished they were more crunchy.

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
Hubby came home with a huge zucchini and cucumber from work and I decided to give this recipe a try since I had all the ingredients. This was fantastic! I used angel hair pasta instead of egg noodles. I used 4 smaller cloves of garlic. I added a small amount (1/2 palmful) of crushed bacon. This was soooo good. The sauce seemed very watery to me at first but I had a timing issue on my side dish and by the time I served it, the sauce had thickened perfectly. Served with garlic bread and tomato/cucumber salad. Wonderful!! My picky kids even ate it pretty well!

Tasted great!! Being a midwesterner, I have had a low-country boil once. It was so good, I just had to try it myself. Easy to follow directions! Thanks!

Easy Lasagna I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
Easy, good, filling. Taste was good but just a basic lasagne - nothing extraordinary. But it was easy and fast and my family liked it.

Lemon Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
Wonderful!!! I wanted a thick icing so I only used 2 cups of the sugar and it was perfectly what I wanted. :) I put it on top of lemon pound cake, very lightly flavored and it was just the perfect topping!! We didn't think it was too tart in the least. Thanks!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2007
Followed the recipe exactly. WONDERFUL taste, my picky 2, 4 and 6yr olds loved them. I was looking for a little chewier cookie though - might play around with this recipe because this one is fabulous tasting but just really crumbly for someone with 4 kids to clean up after. ;) I might try applesauce next time instead...

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
Fabulous, fabulous. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. I made this twice last year and twice this year - followed recipe exactly as written (once I omitted the quartered pecans and it was still fabulous!). My non-pie eating husband begged me to make this again for Cmas. Thanks for such a great recipe!!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2006
I made this last night - HUGE hit with the family. My picky 6yr old, 4yr old and 1.5 yr old ate at least 2 big servings, and some had more. GREAT recipe! Thanks!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
I gave this one 4 stars because of the flavor and because it was a simple carrot cake without extras like raisins, etc. However, I cut the oil down to 3/4C and it was still too oily for my liking. Next time I'll try 1/2C and applesauce as others have suggested. Flavor was great though - I added a tsp of cinnamon, 2tsp of nutmeg and did 1C brown & 1Cwhite sugar. As far as the frosting goes...I would highly suggest starting with 2 cups of powdered sugar, mix all well and taste. That was PLENTY of sugar for me and I've never ever been known to say something was too sugary! LOL I can't imagine what 4 cups would taste like. I also added an extra tsp of vanilla and crushed the pecans into very small crumbs and the frosting turned out REALLY fabulous. I used a deep springform round cake pan and the middle never seemed to set, even after 50 minutes. The top was browning too much so I pulled it out and the middle fell. Still, I fixed that with icing and as I said, the taste is really good. Another tip for sticking pans - spray pan with Pam and then line with parchment - mine came out great with no problems. Next time, I'll probably try two rounds instead of one huge one with icing in the middle. To sum up - great taste, but too much oil in the cake and too much sugar in the icing.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2005
This is fabulous! I've been making a quickie spaghetti sauce (that is great when you need it quick) for a couple years and the flavor difference in this sauce is astounding! My picky 2.5 yr old daughter even ate the meatballs (and she does NOT like meat!). My picky 5yr old loved it and has already asked to have it for lunch tomorrow. I cut the salt in half (those canned tomatoes have a lot of salt already), used fresh parsley instead of dried, used my hand blender to make it a little more saucy and added some sliced crimini mushrooms about 10 minutes before done. Great recipe and I will be making it again! Thanks!

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2005
This was a fast alfredo sauce and pretty good but not the best I've had/made. It'll do in a pinch.

Low Fat Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
FABULOUS!! I've tried many bran muffin recipes and these are the best by far! I stuck to the recipe but couldn't find the brand "Post" so I used a different 100% bran cereal. Awesome, and my 2 & 4yr olds (and even picky DH) love them too!

I loved these brownies! They were spongy, not fudgy but they were chocolatey and since I was on a low-fat diet due to gallstones, this was FABULOUS! ;) Thanks!
