Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
These were really good! I doubled the veggies and added some red pepper flakes to the cabbage mixture. I kept the meat seperate incase we didn't like them - so I wouldn't waste it. I'd just put a scoop of the veggie mixture and then a pinch of meat, and a gob of flour paste at the top and roll it up - worked great! After they were fried I placed them on a dinner plate that had the sesame seeds on it. Next time, I'll do this but line the plate w/ a paper plate first. I pan-fried them in an electric fry pan about 3 mins on each side, into a elongated triangle, sorta. It was good! For dessert, I took the leftover wrapper I had, slivered up part of an apple, sprinkeld with cin/sugar and put a gob of cream cheese in it and folded it in half (into a triangle) and sealed w/ the flour mixture. Fried it. Ate it. YUM!

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This is my standard breadmaker recipe. I use butter instead of oil, and add about 3T of gluten. I love using the local honey in thei bread - it has such a richer flavor than the cheapo grocery store stuff.

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I LOVE this recipe - a friend gave it to mee and I'm so happy to see it on Allrecipes! (It makes it easier for me to share it!) My only complaint is the time it takes to shread the meat - but I make a huge batch of this and freeze in a meal-sized portion (usually in a ziploc quart bag, frozen flat). Makes a great 10minute heat& serve meal on another busy night. I use the thin baguettes (like 2.5-3 inch across) for the bread 0 it's the most cost-effective.

Spicy Brussels Sprouts and Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
YUM! Never thought I'd say that about the infamous brussels sprouts! This was actually my first time eating them (that I remember). I bought some from my farmers market on the reccomendation of a friend. So I'm sure I had the best of the best :) I didn't have horseradish and wasn't about to buy a jar for a recipe. So I used a packet of "Zesty" sauce from Burger King, lol (used for their onion rings). Maybe that tip will help someone else out who dosn't have horseradish laying around :) I'm going to make this again - I hope the frozen brussels sprouts won't be a dissapointment.....ETA 5/23/10 - I tried this with horseradish and didn't care for it as much - use Burger King's Zesty Sauce instead!......ETA 6/11/11 - (obviously I like this recipe and have tweaked it a bit)... I love dicing up some red onion (3 TB) and adding pumpernickel/rye breadcrumbs to the top. I have also tried this recipe in a crockpot - works ok (sprinkle breadcrumbs on after you dish it up) but is still the best when you bake it. ....still using BK Zesty sauce, too. I will be SO bummed if they ever stop making that stuff!

Whole Wheat Honey Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
This is my favorite WW bread so far. I've only been making bread for >90 days. Now I am experimenting with rising it in the pan and baking it instead of baking it in my bread machine. MY MINOR CHANGES: I, too, use 1/8c. milk and 1c. water... I use butter instead of oil and I add 3T of gluten and try to use local honey - that tastes the best. I LOVE the trick to melt the butter in the 1/3c. measurement and then use the "greased" cup when measuring my honey...works better with oil, but butter tastes better so that's what I'm going to use :) I bake on "1.5 lb. white, light crust" setting when I use my bread maker. Thank you MelH for posting this delicious recipe!

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
My kids have been eating two to four 1/4 c. sized pancakes for breakfast for the past 2 months, about 5 times a week. I like that they start the day with some veggies. They take a long time to cook, but I transfer them to a cooling rack when they come off the griddle so they stay a little crispy, then I freeze them and they pull out what they want to toast in the morning.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
Very good! Be sure to start out with slightly less mix on your waffle maker because it expands a lot as you cook. I have a 4-square belgian waffle maker and used 1 1/2 c - 1 3/4 c. to fill it. Next time I'm going to try subbing honey for the sugar. :)

Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
This was very good. I scaled it down to 8 servings and it worked well in an 11x7 pan (or 8x8 would work) for about 40 minutes, give or take. (I have just made it this once and had to add to my original time) Suggestions: Sprinkle top with sugar before baking - I used 1-2 Tb. - was very yummy. Also, I cut up too many apples. Really, the recipe should probably read "cups" instead of apples. I only used about 1 1/2 large apples (Gala) for my 8-serving recipe. I think I put too much flour in. If I hadn't been lazy by scooping the measuring cup in and had spooned the flour in the cup like I was supposed to, I'm sure this would have been perfect. Was a hit for my family! Would taste wonderful with a side of ham.

Whole Wheat Banana Strawberry Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2009
I had a lone overripe banana to use and a pathetically small rhubarb plant that I wanted to make at least *something* with. Found this recipe and reduced the serving size down to a third of the original (for the lone banana) and doubled the rhubarb (like many did with the strawberry component) and made muffins with it (start with about 20 min for baking time). I don't know if it helped or not but I coated the chopped rhubarb in some of the sugar first to sweeten it a bit while I prepared the rest of the ingredients. Next time I will add a pinch of salt, too, I think.
