Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I liked this recipe, but I didn't love the strawberries. I used fresh, and sprinkled them with sugar to sweeten up before adding them to the recipe. They tasted great in the muffin but had an unappealing texture and look. The base recipe is *delicious* and I think I might try it with some sort of other addition. This made enough for probably 15 muffins and they were very filling! My children LOVED them (much to my pleasure! yay for whole wheat!); they are 2 and 3 years old, so very family friendly! Overall, I'll be keeping this recipe, but adding something other than strawberries.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
I used to always buy prepackaged pancake mixes, and yesterday my husband was dying for some pancakes...and yet...no mix in the pantry. I found this recipe and the pancakes were fabulous!!! Never again will I waste money on a mix that is inferior to what I can make with ingredients always found in my kitchen! I have always added vanilla to my panacke mixes, and made to exception for this one. As always, it adds such a sweet touch in the background, though I'd say I used at least a tablespoon in mine. My children LOVED these, and now I know that next time it is essential to make a double batch, as this makes sort of a small batch for a family. Excellent recipe, this one will live on in our family!

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This pie came out perfect, and so delicious. As others have, I tweaked the spices, ommitting nutmeg, and adding ground cloves and pumpkin pie spice along with the cinnamon and ginger. This recipe will go in the permanant box of recipes we use for our family. It was wonderful and I highly reccomend it!

Cut-Out Cookies in a Flower Pot

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
I didn't do the craft, just made the cookies with my 2 1/2 year old daugheter. The only complaint I have is that they were very hard and we tend to like them a touch softer (not too soft though!). Maybe I baked the too long? Anyway, I agree with another review that they passed the kid test! My little daughter had a great time cutting animal shapes out of this dough - which was so easy to make. I halfed the recipe, due to a lack of enough butter in the fridge, but it made MORE than enough cookies! lol Also, I didn't have butter extract, so I just did additional vanilla. I bet it's good with the butter flavor though.... :-)

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
The cookies became really runny on the cookie sheet,several of them turned into giant globs of oatmeal cookie, lol. They *are* thin, as many have said, but I sort of enjoyed the crisp edges and softer middles. I like fluffy cookies also, but the "thinness" didn't bother me. I always grease the pan though, so I didn't have any problems getting them off. I might make the recipe again...

Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
This was really tasty, we ate it over pasta with stemaed broccoli. I think that next time I will add more lemon, less italian dressing, and a touch of white wine.
