Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
It was still too sweet, even though I cut the sugar in half to 1/4 cup white and 1/4 cup brown sugar. I also substitued 1/2 cup applesauce for the margarine, and that was fine. I added nutmeg and ginger, and I think that was a good touch. I also cooked it on the stove for a full hour to make sure it was soft enough to mix, and it was perfectly easy. My oven was busy, so I used my toaster oven for the same hour, and it was perfect! Just a bit too sweet, or I would have given it a five star rating. I can't imagine it with a full cup of sugar. I doubt any of us could have eaten it.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
It was moist, and not as dense as a more traditional banana bread which I really do prefer. I used 7 smaller bananas, and it gave me 2 cups and a third banana mashed. I also added half teaspoon of nutmeg, and quarter teaspoon of cloves. I like to put nutmeg in as many recipes as I can, it adds a great touch to the fall spices and goes beautifully with the bananas. I substituted using brown sugar for half of the sugar, doing half white and half brown sugar for more flavor. I did not use nuts, but added 2 cups of chocolate chips, and made two normal sized loaves, and one slightly smaller. I did not think the adding the sugar cinnamon was a big added factor for taste. The sour cream really does keep it moist. I also baked at 325 and not the lower temp of 300, for an hour and fifteen minutes.

Tater-Dipped Eggplant

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
It was OK, both 15 year old and 11 year old girls liked it better than I did. My 15 year old gave it 4 stars. I tweaked it a bit. First off, used olive oil to coat the pan, why use butter? Olive oil made so much more sense. Then added Creamy Italian dressing to TWO eggs, and then added a great garlic seasoning that has Parmesan cheese in it to the instant potato's. Cut at a bit larger than an inch, and two slices per person were enough. Will slice it thinner next time. Finishing another small batch in the oven as I type this. We also added Parmesan cheese when we took it out of the oven. Served it with pasta, and it was a great meal, and very filling. Was very fast and easy to make. I look forward to trying it with zucchini this summer.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
Best lentil soup I have ever made, but I tweaked it. I used a can of chicken broth and only 4 cups of water. I used garlic seasonings instead of fresh garlic. I did use a large onion, and let it cook with the garlic seasonings and 5 chopped carrots, then added the lentils AND a can of garbonzo beans AND can of diced tomatoes. It is absolutely delicious. Check out other lentil soup recipes, and have fun adding various ingredients. I usually am creative with every recipe I make. Try some new things, if you don't like what is in the current recipe. Most cases, you will be happily surprised how good things turn out.

Best Ever Meatloaf I

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Only if you jazz it up a lot. I added 3/4 cup of molasses, to sweeten it up, 1/2 large sauteed onion, minced carrots, 1/4 cup honey mustard dressing, 6 good squirts of Worcestershire Sauce, can of chopped tomatoes with basil and garlic, added an additional egg, probably put more quick oats than needed, in addition to 1 cup bread crumbs. I had enough for two loaves. I put cranberry mustard sauce on one, ketchup on the other. Both came out super moist an extremely flavorful. Even picky children enjoy it. I would not make meatloaf without throwing in a bunch of different things, it is far to bland and dry without the additions, which ever things you feel like putting in it.

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
My first bread baking try in 30 years! And the recipe was fabulous! I let it sit with the yeast mixture longer, as I did with letting it rise for an hour and a half. It did double in size, as I had hoped. I brushed melted butter on the tops of both loaves with sprinkled sugar before and after I put it in the oven. Wow, it was delicious! The slight sugar touch gave it a light sweet taste on the not too hard crust. More bread recipes are now in my horizon!
