Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
I made them gluten free-1.5 cups gf baking flour and 3/4 cup fine white cornmeal-and they are great. even my husband who is fairly critical of healthy variations liked them a lot.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
I'm giving the recipe 5 stars, but I made some changes and that would have made it less, if that was part of the original recipe...but, what I did was use the cornstarch. I'm always scared that custard won't set up, so I feel more comfortable with cornstarch. But it was a mistake to do so because it ended up a bit, just a bit, too tight. Most importantly, the meringue couldn't adhere to it very well, so it sort of slipped around on top, which wasn't very appealing. I think the flour would have had a better texture, something for the meringue to hold onto.

French Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
this recipe makes me feel like I can make french bread every weekend. The first batch was so good, I made another one right away for rolls. I also forgot to add more salt as recommended in the reviews so I added salt to warm water and used that to brush on top--no egg. turned out great! thanks for a great recipe!

Golden Carrot Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
these rolls are really perfect. they are delicious, and a bit more nutritious than regular rolls. I made a batch and froze them. They were best when eaten within the month. Just take out what you want to thaw, warm them up in the microwave or wrapped in foil in the oven if you want to. my kids loved them. they are a very pretty color too. Thanks for a great, unusual recipe!!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
this is an amazing, delicious cobbler. my family goes crazy for it, and it never lasts longer than about 2 hours after I make it. I've also frozen this after I cooked it, then thawed it on the counter--great as is or warmed up in the oven. Love having this in my freezer ready to go!

Savory Slow Cooker Squash and Apple Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
it was good, but I think it would have been better if I had cooked it for less time--probably because I halved the recipe and cooked it in my small cooker. It was great to have the squash and apples combined. I think less cook time and sprinkle with candied pecans would be great.

Cranberry Apple Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I am sure that this recipe works for the submitter, but most of the people who rated this highly added liquid or did something not called for in the actual recipe. The taste is fine (not outrageously good, but fine), but the texture is crumbly and difficult to slice. My dog definitely would give it 5 stars, since a fair amount has ended up on the floor with two kids trying it. I think that there has to be a more flexible, easier recipe to try for the same ingredients.

Cranberry Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I think these are fantastic. I used frozen cranberries. I didn't have any carrots and was scared that would affect the moisture. I added raisins instead of the carrots and a splash of soy milk when mixing them up. I also used 1/2 ww flour. They turned out great. I was nervous because the reviews were saying they were dry, but they weren't. And they have plenty of flavor for me, I really like them.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
this is terrific, and if you have some zucchini to use up you should definitely put it in your repertoire. I subbed some of the oil with applesauce and some of the sugar with splenda, otherwise made it as written and we all loved it. Even my son's friend, who doesn't eat vegetables at all, loved it. We didn't tell him about the zucchini until after he ate it though--he was like 'I've never had zucchini, its good'. lol.

Cinnamon-Raisin Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
perfect recipe! I have made granola before and burned it, but this one is just right. I added about 1/4 cup flax seed meal and 1/4 cup chopped pecans to the oats, and I don't think I'll add the raisins this time. I stirred it about 3 times, cooking it at 300 (my oven is hot) for 15 minutes. I also stirred it quite a bit while cooling.

Southwestern-Flavored Ground Beef or Turkey for Tacos & Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
I cooked this in a slow cooker with added water on low for about 5 hours. I browned and drained the beef first. I did not really like this very much. I don't know if its because of the slow cooker or not, but I cook chili and things like that with the same spices and they never taste funny like this did. Its a great recipe as far as the idea goes, I'm just going to have to look around for another one.
