Banana Date Flaxseed Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
I used 3/4 all-purpose flour and 3/4 whole wheat; applesauce instead of oil; 3/4 ground flaxseed; added walnuts and pecans; and added ground cinnamon, nutmeg and clove (1/2 tsp each). It turned out very good. If you like spicy bread, you will love it!

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
Some people say it is moist and some people say it is dry... I was wondering which was true. I like very moist cake even if I eat with a cup of coffee! So, I tried to use 1/4 cup RICE FLOUR and 3/4 cup all purpose flour instead of 1 cup all purpose flour (by the way, I made this cake with just a half amount of the original. I used 1-8x4x2in. pan, baked 45 min.) It turned out so moist and delicious!! I don't know if it's rice flour's magic or originally moist but you should try if you like very moist cake! Also, I used brown sugar instead of confectioners' sugar as many people recommended.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
This was the very first time for me to make scones today (actually just baked and tasted some right now!). It was great to choose this recipe for my first scone!! Taste is good, texture is good, everything is perfect for me. I didn't have dried blueberries so I tried to use frozen ones. When I stired in berries, the dough seemed very wet but it was no problem after baked. I will definitely use this recipe again!!

Country Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
Great! I used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour, unsweetened applesauce instead of oil, and cut the sugar in half. As LJMOMMA did, I also used 2 cups of pumpkin and skipped the water. They are very pumpkiny, dense, nice and moist. Thanks! UPDATE:About the flour, I tried another change for the second time. I used 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, 1/3 cup wheat bran and 1/3 cup ground flax seed. This time I used 1 cup pumpkin and 1/3 cup skim milk. The rest is the same as my 1st time. The 2nd one was good too.

Flax Seed Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2006
As other reviewers mentioned, it is more like quickbread. So I baked 12 muffins with this recipe for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. It turned out a little bit dry on surface but inside was okay so I will try lower degrees or shorter time for the next time. Recently using flax seed is a kind of my trend so I used 1/3 cup of ground flax seed. I skipped all-purpose flour and used 1 2/3 cups of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of oat bran. I usually make "Bran Flax Muffins" on this site and am looking for something another as healthy, fiberly and tasty as "Bran Flax Muffins". I am glad to find this could be the one.

Florida Key Lime Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
My husband calls me sugar-addict but even for me this pie was too sweet! I like Key Lime pie and usually I have it at restaurants but I'd never tried to make it by myself. This was the first time for me to make Key Lime pie so I was looking for a recipe which seemed very good. I tried this recipe because this has cream cheese which I like. I found a recipe which has sour cream, or doesn't have either. I still don't know which one is the genuine Key Lime pie recipe... But at least I knew every recipe has condensed milk which probably makes the pie very sweet. I wonder what happens if I use half condensed milk and half evaporated milk. Anyways, overall the taste was not very bad but it was just too sweet for me.

Poppy Seed and Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
I like these muffins for healthy non-sweet breakfast. I used ground flax seed instead of wheat germ, maple syrup instead of honey just because I didn't have wheat germ and honey on hand. I added 1 tsp of vanilla. It turned out very good! It is not as moist as I expected but it's still good!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
Mine turned out inbetween cakey and chewy. If I make these cookies next time, I will try not to use baking powder to reduce the cakey texture. I like this time's texture though. For my taste, chocolate and cinnamon go well! I used butter instead of margarine. I used 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat, and put 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed in flour mixture just because for a little bit of nutrition.

Pineapple Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
This is a very light square cake. I used sweetened flaked coconut and 3/4 cup sugar but it was not too sweet. The crust was a little bit cakey to me (I was expecting a little bit harder one). I added 1/4 tsp salt to the crust. I think it's going to be too bland if you don't put some salt. Overall, I think it's very good!
