All-Natural No-Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
I gave this 5 stars because for "healthier" and considering the ingredients used, these were very good and the sweetness was not overpowering, and most importantly, my kids loved these cookies. I tweaked the recipe a bit and added about 1/2 cup of ground flax, used 1 3/4 cup oats instead of the 2 cups, 3/4 cup of honey instead of the 1 cup asked for, and 2 teaspoon of vanilla instead of 1.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
Generally not a fan of cooked apples, but this was delicious. The only thing I did differently was add half the amount of water and white sugar called for.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
Used 3 egg whites, 3/4 cup white sugar. Turned out super moist, almost like angle food cake. My kids have made specific requests for this cake to made for their birthday. I made the fluffy white frosting that is on this website. A very delicious combination.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
Very tasty and healthy. I did not have onion, so I had to use scallions, and I only had dried cilantro. I used my banana peppers from our garden instead of jalapenos. I added Mexican chili powder to spice it up a bit more. I used more colored peppers than called for because we love peppers. Instead of white tortillas I used a high fiber/protein tortilla. The recipe made enough for seconds for all four of us. Will be making these again. Thanks.

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
I drink alcohol 2-3 times per year and it's usually wine. But I decided to give this a try at one of our parties. That was the first beverage to go and everyone who tried it, loved it, including me. I will be making this again.

Fluffy White Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
Lovely taste and texture. Not too sweet. I made this with a recipe on this site called Apple White Cake. The kids could taste the egg a little, but weren't too concerned about it, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Very good. Even forgot to add the red wine. I added an entire minced bulb of garlic. Used Italian parsley.

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I used one 18oz. box of organic corn bread mix--store brand. Used the recommended amount of eggs, milk, and sugar. Instead of using an entire package of hot dogs, I used six nitrate free hot dogs. Sliced the hot dogs in half length-wise and sliced into smaller pieces. Even I liked these and I don't eat hot dogs. My kids love them for school lunches. Also great for kid parties. Definitely a keeper. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Everyone I know who has tried these, love these. I love them. They're addicting. If you cook the chocolate chips to almost burnt, you will create a cappuccino type flavor, which was a big hit.

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Love this recipe. Easy and fast to make. Very kid friendly and they love to help put it together, too. I use the corn tortillas that were already crisped and use lean turkey burger instead of beef. I also add a can of drained black beans to the beef for additional nutrients.

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
I used my pressure cooker to first cook unsoaked black eyed peas. I used my smaller pressure cooker to cook hot Italian sausage. Added about 5-6 large cloves of garlic, and I omitted the brown rice. Excellent dish. Kids thought it was a tad spicy, but they ate it anyway. Can't wait to make it again.

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
I used bacon instead of sausage, finely chopped colored peppers instead of just green, 1/4 cup dried minced onions instead of the raw onion, 1 cup cottage cheese instead of the shredded cheese. We love this recipe. Making it again tomorrow.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Cooked unsoaked beans in a pressure cooker first and then added everything else. I did not add the jalapeños--my kids would not have eaten it. But I added about 9 cloves of garlic. I did not have oregano so I used thyme instead. Super delicious dish. Will be making this again. Thanks.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
These were so delish! I'm making them again. I made 12 stuffed breasts and wrapped them individually for freezing. They're perfect for my husband to take to work when frozen and he can heat them in the microwave on his lunch. My kids liked them better than most chicken dishes.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
Yummy and healthy! I replaced 1 cup of flour with 1 cup ground up oatmeal. I took the advice of other reviewers and used 3/4 cup honey. Used apple sauce instead of oil. I also let it sit for about 30 minutes after all ingredients were mixed together. I did not make the topping. I also used a fairly large sweet potato (6-7 inches). Makes a great breakfast muffin with a glass of milk or juice to top it off.

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
PERFECT base recipe. The texture and moisture are perfect. I add more herbs and spices to mine. I can see where some would think this recipe is bland, but you can always add more seasoning.
