Herald's Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
great! NOTE TO NON-AMERICAN-EATERS: this does NOT taste like some can-inspired casserole. as long as you spice it up! i added sliced hot peppers (cooked with the beef), reduced the beef, added some olive oil, added some finely chopped garlic, added canned peas, added asparagus (turned out too thready/hard to cut), added salt, added red pepper spice, added a small package of crushed red pepper (would not do this in the future). i also wish that the crust was on the bottom as well as top... next time i'll consider pouring some on the bottom first, or maybe just mixing it with the meat sauce... next time i'll also try to make it more healthy using mozerella cheese instead of cheddar slices.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Will try this one again... I left in the oven for 7 extra minutes because the top was still soft at the time they were supposed to be ready-- and I took a little taste and it tasted raw. But 7 minutes was too long-- they were no longer chewy enough.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Strange, off taste. A bit dry. Not sophisticated. Changes: * Added additional fresh basil * Reduced salt as suggested in various reviews, but that was a mistake-- too bland. * Added chopped onions. Suggestions: * Maybe try cayenne pepper.... * Salt as directed, don't bother with onions.

It was decent, but not really enticing enough to make again. Suggest adding veggies with chicken. Changes: substituted nutmeg for mace, substituted vinegar for wine.

Dee's Health Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
It was soft but bland. Mine didn't look as delicious as the photo. Changes: maple syrup instead of molasses, oatmeal, burgul, sesame seeds instead of flax seed, cracked wheat, sunflower seeds. Added 1 tbsp flaxseed meal. Do NOT coat the pan with cornmeal, it tastes gross. Next time will try reviewer suggestion: using NO white flour, using instant yeast, adding 2 tbsp each of dough enhancer, lecithin, and vital wheat gluten. I will try not doing the rising, just mixing all at once, kneading, put in loaf pans to rise, then put in oven and bake even while oven is preheating.

Pecan Cereal Clusters

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
i did this as a layer over precut brownies-- was tasty! if you don't have m&ms, try using whole unmelted chocolate chips. it looks kind of unsophisticated though when you bite into it and discover the cheerios.
