Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This is an awesome recipe. I adjusted it some for several reasons however... First I am sensitive to wheat so I use a mixture of white rice flour and multi grain whole grain flour mixture that is gluten free. I do still use the oats so not 100% gluten free but close. I don't use the butter at all. Instead I use an entire cup of applesauce. I also only use 1/3 cup brown sugar and double the Cinnamon and add nutmeg and ground cloves for added sweetness and spice!

Sugarless Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
I love these "cookies" but I also don't consider them cookies I think of them more as biscuits. I also add a lot more stuff too them, like more dried fruits and nuts.

Country Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
These were great scones! I made them with raisins and with chocolate chips both were exceptional. I even cut down on the fat and sugar by using 1/3c sour cream and 2/3 c nonfat plain yogurt, one egg instead of two egg yolks, and on the raisin ones I used cinnamon and ground cloves to top.

Chocolate-Oat Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
I changed this recipe quite a bit from lack of chocolate chips and a desire to not have nuts in them so instead I put the toffee bits directly into the mix and baked. I also added a third more of the ingredients so I could make a 13x9 inch pan. Baked on 450 for 12 minutes and the smell of the melty toffee is tantalizing and the taste is awesome, not to sweet and nice and crunchy

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Really yummy! Took the advice of other reviews and doubled the coating using vanilla instead of water and brown sugar instead of white sugar plus added nutmeg and cloves and cooked it a half hour longer for the crunch.

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I enjoyed the ease of these buns and it is an easily adjustable recipe which is great. I cut the recipe in half used about 3/4 pre-baked acorn squash (which had some butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg on it), used brown sugar instead of white, and used 4 cups of 100% whole wheat. I did follow advice of others and let rise for about two hours. Dense but moist and fluffy as well.

Dump Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
These are excellent brownies! And you don't need the chocolate chips if you don't want them or like me didn't have any on hand.

Cantina Pinto Beans

I don't add the tomatoes and throw in some beef or chicken. These are also really good with some carrots added.

Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Genius I never would have thought of putting the butter directly into the pain with the popping kernels but it makes the popcorn perfect with just the right amount of butter and crispiness. I loved making popcorn on the stove before learning this trick but now I will never buy microwave popcorn again ever.

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
These were really good from scratch pancakes. I adjusted the recipe though using only 2/3cup 100% whole wheat flour so they weren't so thick, used an entire cup of applesauce, used fat free plain yogurt in place of the sour cream, used an extra 1/2 tsp of baking powder and a little extra baking soda(as another review suggested), and added ground flaxseed. The oatmeal really stands out and tastes great. Perfect amount of sweetness and just the right amount of dense/fluffiness.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
I was honestly a little worried I wouldn't ever be able to make my own pizza dough cause I don't have any types of machines but this recipe was indeed amazing and so easy. I did only use 100% whole wheat because like others I want the good healthy stuff and I also added pizza seasoning to it. Turned out really yummy as both a Hawaiian (red sauce, Canadian bacon, pineapple) and a more of a Mediterranean style pizza (garlic butter sauce, olives, artichoke hearts, and I used up the rest of the Canadian bacon). Definitely a much healthier and budget friendly alternative to ordering out.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Good hearty chili. I did use vegetable juice instead of tomato and cut it by about a cup and I did replace the canned beans with a 15oz bag of dried black beans because that is what I had on hand, this added to the cooking time but definitely still really good.

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
This is very exceptional cornbread. Super easy to make and really delicious. I did make a tiny adjustment since I didn't have any heavy whipping cream and wanted to cut down on the fat a little, I instead used 1/2c half and half and 1/2c 1% milk. I even probably could've gotten away with just using milk and it would have still been awesome.

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I thought this was a great soup whether actual Tom Ka Gai or a mock version of it, this is good soup. I changed it some though due to lack of the proper ingredients and a desire to have more to it. I used powered ginger and lemon juice. I didn't use turmeric, green onions, or cilantro. I did however add bay leaves, a spoonful of sugar, red peppers, and celery. Really good!

Self Frosting Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I liked these cookies a lot but I changed the recipe a bit. I only had about a 1/4c of brown sugar so I added cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and raisins to add some sweetness and spice. I only used about 2/3 cup oil and replaced 1/2 cup of the flour with whole wheat flour. The cookies stayed in their little ball form which meant I had to cook them for about 13 mins. but they were worth the extra little wait. I wouldn't say they self frost though however I did like the sugar coating on them so I'm pleased.

Salmon and Asparagus with Penne and Light Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2011
I did this a little differently because of what I had on hand. I used zucchini instead of asparagus and I used about 3/4 whole milk with about 1/4 cup light mayo in place of the cream. I also used about 1/3 cup shredded cheddar instead.
