Dark Rye Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
I made this recipe today in my bread machine and it is fantastic! I didn't have rye flour, so I subbed whole wheat flour and used canola oil instead of vegetable. I also used warm water (didn't get an exact temperature, just warm out of the tap) and used 1 1/2 tsp salt as others suggested. Not sure if it made a difference but I also used 2 1/4 tsp yeast--bought in in bulk--instead of the single use packets I've used before. I followed the instructions for my bread machine and this bread rose more than any other bread I've made! Great taste and texture and was perfect for the Reuben sandwiches that we had for dinner!

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
These are AMAZING!!! This will definitely be one of my go-to recipes when I need to use up ripe bananas! Changes I made: Replaced margarine with applesauce, used 1/4 egg beaters in place of the egg, 1.5 cups whole wheat flour & 3/4 cup all purpose flour, 1/2 cup white sugar & 1/2 cup light brown sugar, increased coffee to 3 tbsp dissolved in just over 2 tbsp water, and 1/2 chocolate chips &1/2 cinnamon chips. Thanks for a WONDERFUL recipe!

Apple-Raisin French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
I made this for my breakfast day at work and it was a huge hit! I tweaked it a bit to make it healthier and it still came out fantastic! Here are my changes: 1) used one loaf whole wheat cinnamon raisin bread, cubed and toasted at 450 for 10 minutes (stirred bread cubes halfway through toasting); 2) used 1 cup egg beaters and 2 eggs (didn't have enough egg beaters to fully substitute, but will probably use all egg beaters next time); 3) mixed bread with egg mixture in bowl and then poured into bottom of casserole dish. 4) Spread apple/raisin mixture and syrup on top of bread (the apples tasted like baked cinnamon apples & were amazing!); 5) Baked covered for 30 minutes...had to bake almost 45 minutes uncovered to get to the right texture; 6) Dusted with powdered sugar just before serving. Next time I'll definitely cut back the butter to 1/4 cup--the top looked like it was swimming in butter at first and I had to drain it and blot with paper towels. I think my cooking time will be greatly reduced with less butter too--I was trying to get it to dry out after blotting the extra off! All in all, definitely a keeper!

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
I made this in a 9X13 pan as a coffee cake and baked it for 45 minutes and it came out great! I used half oil and half applesauce and had to use a little more butter for the streusel topping in order get all of the ingredients mixed in and it came out amazing! I brought it to work for my breakfast day and everyone loved it! Next time I'll try using all applesauce and no oil, egg whites, and whole wheat flour and/or oatmeal (I didn't want to make too many changes the first time I made the recipe!) to make it a little healthier. I might also try foregoing the streusel topping and just sprinkling cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar on top instead. All in all a great recipe!

Easy Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
The recipe was great! I was a little nervous about the 4 cans of tomato sauce (I don't like tomato soup and was afraid it might taste like that) but I decided to try it and I'm glad I did. The only changes I made were to add 2 bay leaves, puree about half of the beans to make the soup thicker, and I used Pipete pasta because I couldn't find Ditalini. Served with grated parmesan cheese on top--YUM!

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This was wonderful! I blended the honey in with the other ingredients instead of garnishing with it. Next time I think I'll add some oatmeal as well. Thanks for a great smoothie recipe!

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
In addition to my previous rating, I also added a bit of white wine to the sauce, which gave it a great flavor!
