Egg-Free Dairy-Free Nut-Free Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
This chocolate cake definitely deserves a better name, because it was amazingly moist, chocolately, and delicious. Allergy-sufferer or not, you will love this recipe. I only made two changes, one by accident and one on purpose: I substituted Hershey's Cocoa Powder Special Dark for the regular cocoa powder (that was on purpose), and omitted the chocolate chips (by accident). We didn't miss the chocolate chips at all (maybe because of the dark cocoa?). I made the batter into cupcakes, which took about 20-22 minutes to bake. So-o-o-o good with coconut pecan frosting!

Black Bean Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Fantastic dip! You'll enjoy this even if you don't particularly care for traditional hummus. We found this an easy-to-prepare recipe, and the flavor was even better the second day. The only change we made was omitting the salt, which you don't miss if you serve the dip with tortilla chips.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Simple, easy, and oh so tasty! For a nice filling for tarts or crescent rolls, add some cornstarch to thicken the mixture and don't put the strawberries in the food processer.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
We've never had white wine in this house when making this salmon recipe, but even with chicken broth this is an exceptional, company-worthy dish. Edited to add: The white wine adds even more dimension to the taste of this salmon. Highly recommend doubling the glaze, as it is delicious and you will want more!

Balsamic Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This was an okay duo of dishes. I used pork chops instead of chicken breasts. If you really like balsamic vinegar, you'll like the meat. The sweet potatoes were delicious.

Jamaica Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
I didn't have any canned pineapple, so I substituted a can of diced pears. I don't know what the cake would have tasted like with pineapple, but it was very moist and delicious using pears! I also added a teaspoon of almond extract in addition to the vanilla. One important note: Make sure you bake this in the 9x13 pan, but I did mix the batter in a bowl first.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
Good, healthier fries! I cut 4 medium-sized potatoes into thin pieces and doubled the other ingredients, shook everything in a Ziploc bag, and put them in the oven for approximately 30 minutes on 400 degrees. (Don't forget to flip them half-way through the time.)

Blueberry Potato Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
We found this to be an odd sort of cake. It didn't taste bad, just a little strange. The novelty of having a cake made with mashed potatoes probably was the highlight of the experience!

Sweet Honey French Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
This was a nice, basic bread recipe (chewy inside, crisp outside), perfect with homemade vegetable soup on a snowy day. I didn't change a thing, and the 59-minute, quick-rise cycle on my bread machine formed a great little loaf. I'll use this recipe again!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Pretty darn good stir fry recipe! Tastes a lot like something you'd get at the little Chinese place around the corner. I definitely recommend doubling or tripling the yummy sauce so you can add a bag of frozen stir fry mix or the fresh ingredients of your choice. Tasty and healthy!

Easy Blender Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
The lemon juice is the secret in this easy to make recipe. Don't omit it!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
I made this recipe exactly as directed, with the exception of substituting fresh garlic for the garlic salt, and this chicken was fantastic. I couldn't believe how easy to prepare the dish was, and my hard-to-please father not only ate the chicken, he asked for the recipe. This made a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner on a day when my poor husband had to work late. One note: I think the chicken is as good as the quality of your balsamic vinegar. Mine was a great bottle of Bella Famiglia.

Easy Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I did not care for this recipe. I followed another reviewer's suggestion to add in the tomato ingredients in the beginning, which seemed to make the rice simultaneously raw and burnt. I will make this again to see if the original method works.

Budget-Wise Chicken Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I made quite a few changes, but this was such an awesome beginning recipe that I gave it 5 stars. Here's what I did: Sauteed the chicken in olive oil with an onion and two crushed up bay leaves. In another pan, sauteed in olive oil 2 shredded carrots and 4 medium-sized shredded potatoes, plus two stalks of celery. I added a little rosemary and some dried minced onion while the veggies were cooking. After both pans were finished cooking, I combined them and added black pepper and 1 cup of chicken broth and two more bay leaves. A pre-fab pie crust from the refrigerated aisle finished up this easy dish. One last note: The pie took over an hour to bake fully, but was perfect in the end. Can't wait to share this one!

Jam Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Good, basic muffins. You'll definitely want to use a measuring teaspoon for the jelly, not a regular spoon, and make sure to follow the directions about pushing down the jelly into the muffin batter.

Peach Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Don't expect this to be a regular cake-cake. This is more like a sticky, gooey, absolutely yummy peach cobbler with a crunchy top. I used half white sugar and half brown sugar, which was so-o-o good, added a teaspoon of cinnamon, and used half white flour, half whole wheat. I did leave out just a bit of the syrupy juice (maybe 1/8 cup). We loved this cake-cobbler concoction!

Easy Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
These cookies taste a lot like honey, so if you wouldn't like that overpowering taste, don't make them. I think you could just substitute whole wheat flour in a regular peanut butter cookie recipe and wind up with a better product.

Seminary Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
Mmm, these muffins make a nice, hearty snack. I made the recipe exactly as directed with the exception of using Orgran No Egg Natural Egg Replacer since my son is allergic to eggs. I also omitted the nuts since we aren't big fans. The larger muffins took about 18-19 minutes, and the mini-muffins I made to use up the batter took about thirteen minutes.

Spicy Sweet Potato Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Our family really loves sweet potatoes, but these chips were just too sweet. We couldn't taste anything but the maple syrup, and so we give this an "average" rating.

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
The simple, sodium-free marinade made these chops extra-tasty. We used four bone-in pork chops and didn't boil the left-over marinade, as there wasn't much left.
