Maple-Drizzled Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
It had good flavor, but my family did not like it. at all. I am thinking, though, that the problem is my family does not like oats inside the muffins - that seems to be the common factor in all the non-winner muffin recipes here.

Sugar Cookie Cutouts

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I agree - rather dry. I try to half a new recipe so I do not get a lot. Easy to make, easy to roll. cooked up fine. But I agree with the other reviews - dry and kind of tasteless, even with a thick layer of crushed candy canes they had no flavor.

Gobi Aloo (Indian Style Cauliflower with Potatoes)

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
There is a debate here about whether or not this needs a gravy. the first time I had allo gobi, some friends from the Punjab region of Pakistan made it - and it had a thick rich gravy, so I have adjusted this accordingly. I add 2/3 c cream and some water to coat the veggies - it helps distribute the spices to all surface area. then I cook it down until it is a thick, but not plentiful, gravy. I have also been known to add 2 handfuls of green peas just before serving (my kids like it better this way).

Fort Worth Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
The white sauce was surprisingly good. Even the kids liked it. The batter worked great. For some reason the fish didn't taste good, but I think that may have been something on my end. I will definitely make it again to see what that could have been.

Maple Kale Crisps

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
I mix my oil and maple syrup (REAL maple syrup please!) in a ziploc and let it sit for a few minutes. I spread it on my dehydrator trays before sprinkling with salt. Lots of salt. I then turn on my dehydrator to 110 degrees for 8 hours. I love this. It is like caramel popcorn with kale instead of corn. Definitely one of my favorites - even the kids love it.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
this was great! much better than our previous pumpkin soup. I did add 1/2 t garam masala as per other reviews, and it was prefect. Also, skipped the whipping cream and added a dollop of sour cream to each bowl. warm and filling.

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
ok, full disclosure here, we made a number of changes First, we halved the batch for my small family, and cooked it in the toaster oven in a small round cake pan. Also, we are cutting down on our sugar, and since coffee cake is overly sweet to balance coffee, I often find i can cut the sugar in half. I think that next time I will only cut the white sugar in half, but only cut the powdered sugar by 1/4. I did half whole wheat and half white flour. And since we do not eat nuts around here, I substituted a 1/2 cup of crushed dried raspberries. Overall, it was a great breakfast.

Fried Plantains

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
never had plantains before. We picked this up as a supplement to a homeschool lesson. We waited until it was almost black, and then tried to peel it. I had to cut the peel off with a knife. anyway, we fried them in coconut oil - the ones that cooked the longest tasted the best, and then we added sugar and cinnamon. it was a winner :)

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
okay... first, my "variations" I followed one reviewer who substituted ground flax seed for the wheat germ (not having any) and 1/2 c yogurt plus 1.5 c milk for the buttermilk. also no canola, used coconut oil. I think I will go add 1 t of vanilla as some have suggested - I did that. in conclusion: these were yummy; the kids really liked them (I did add some choc chips to theirs - always helpful when trying a new recipe) I found them rather dry, but tasty. Dunno if I will make them again.

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
one of our favorites. I buy fresh chicken breast in bulk when it is on sale and make 30 or so of these (I use the cut-a-hole-in-the-fat-end-and-stuff-it method; I think I will try crumbling the bacon next time - I like that idea), then freeze in 6-breast freezer bags. When I remove them from the freezer, I place the chicken on top of cooked basmati rice and then drizzle the oil mixture over the chicken and rice. The rice makes a wonderful addition and the flavors from the marinade and the chicken makes the rice to-die-for! I usually make a greek salad to go with it and fresh pita.

Parmesan-Black Pepper Arborio Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
family really liked this. I ran out of arborio rice, so had to use 1/4 c of my basmati/brown mix (2 parts basmati, 1 part brown) to round out the recipe. but it was really good. even very picky hubby ate it.

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
we tried this for egg roll dipin's. tasty. couple of things: we don't do a lot of sugar so we took someone's advice and used pineapple juice instead of water, and then added agave a bit at a time until it was the right sweet for us. it turned out to about 1/3-1/2 c. we also used rice vinegar.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
First, a disclaimer, I am a habitual snitcher.... I taste everything in the various stages of preparedness (except brownie batter - I go straight to the batter with a BIG spoon, no "snitching" there). So I put the sprouts - mine were exceptionally large, so I quartered them - in the bag with the oil and seasonings. Then I tasted. oh, they were sooo good! I probably ate a good third of them like that. They were sweet and salty and I love the flavor of good EVOO. Then I cooked them. My 8-yo son said they tasted better cooked (I had made all the kids try them raw, they were so good), but he didn't eat more than the one; my 6-yo daughter and I liked them better raw; my 3-yo girl threw them up both ways, and dh wouldn't touch them at all. So my final rating is, good recipe, just don't cook them!---------edit: I have changed my mind. This is the BEST way to eat brussel sprouts. There is just no comparison. Except, I stand by my admonition to just eat them raw. I have been making a quart ziploc of these every week, and snack on them through the day - they get better the longer they sit in the marinade; I eat them for dinner when the rest of family is having carrot or cucumber sticks; 2 of my children snitch them out of the fridge when I am not looking. And if I really want to cook them, so the rest of the family will eat them, they are already marinated. All around, a happy happy recipe :)

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
everyone liked this, even the picky 3-yo, once she could be bribed into trying it (french fries are always useful on new food night!!!!) I did use caesar dressing instead of Italian, and it had to cook more like 15-20 min, but even with that high heat, it was moist and tender and the topping was crunchy, not burnt. We'll make it again.
