Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
This was tasty and not at all soggy. I let the liquid cook off and added the broth/garlic/onion combo to my spinach and artichoke mixture (I pureed the artichoke). Added the sauce and thought it didn't look or smell very good as a finished product, but was actually quite tasty when cooked. The artichoke added good flavor.

Easy Apple Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
I think I altered this recipe so much it's not quite the same anymore. I did so based on the calorie content. I used brown sugar (1/2 cup), whole wheat pastry flour mixed with the white, and applesauce instead of the oil. I did not add the topping as I intend to use this less sweet version for breakfasts in the morning with cream cheese spread in the middle. The lower-cal version is still good, but I bet the original version is wonderful!

Cretons

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
This was very tasty and although took a long time to cook, was low maintainance. I served it with brown rice and everyone liked it.

Grandpere dans le Sirop

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2007
Very easy, very rich, and I halved the recipe and still came out with more than enough for 4 people. This is kind of like a dumpling version of creme brule.

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
we loved this - it's my new favorite salmon recipe - although I did quarter the sauce and still had too much and had to throw extra away. Followed recipe as-is, cooked 20 mins - wonderful flavor that complements the fish.

Whole Grain Healthy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
I've been looking for a healthy banana bread for a while and this one was good and still had a strong banana flavor. I only substituted brown sugar for the splenda and one egg for the egg white, and it was tasty and filling. A toasted slice with a little cream cheese on the top was a handy traveling breakfast that held me over for three hours!

Crab and Swiss Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2007
Although the imitation crab I used didn't impart any particular flavor worth discussing, this is definitely going to become my standard quiche recipe. The flavor was great and the texture was consistant and creamy yet fluffy. I rarely have sour cream or heavy cream on hand which is standard in many quiche recipes, but I always have mayo. This had the best flavor compared to other quiches I tried. I won't do the crab again, but I can't wait to try it with other ingredients. A wonderful base quiche!

Cold Roasted Moroccan Spiced Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2007
My Dad LOVED this fish - he's been really looking for flavorful dishes after being spoiled eating at Boma in Disney World. This fish was very flavorful, the cumin was the predominant flavor and I love cumin, but it was a little much for me.

Halloween Bloody Baked Rats

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
Very cute idea, I ended up with some problems, though; the spaghetti tails burned (maybe not enough sauce to keep them moist? I used a diffent sauce). My "guts" oozed out while baking on most of the rats, and I couldn't get the pea eyes on. I suggest pre-planning and creating little pockets for later eye placement and making sure the meat is wrapped tightly around the cheese. I gave this four stars because of the presentation; great holiday idea, although honestly I used my own meatloaf recipe and sauce, so my rating isn't based on flavor. This made about 9 palm sized rats for us.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
These are very good; I do use all applesauce instead of oil, but everything else I do exactly as written - this also makes a ton of waffles, we toast them and bring them in the car on the way to school. I love having healthy breakfasts with all that fiber and protein and a great taste - thanks!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
OH MY GOD! That's what everyone said at Thanksgiving. I made as written, did have to double the sauce, used the variety of apples I had on hand. Was the best apple pie I've ever had!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Great crust. I was skeptical b/c it seemed so simple, and when I tasted the dough it seemed a little salty (I did add a tiny bit of confectioner's sugar at that point), but the finished product was great. It did not get soggy, did not interfere with the taste of the pie, and most certainly did not have the tang of manufactured flavor of the frozen pie crust I've always used!

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
A really good "healthy" snack option. I did alter; I used 2 Tbls butter and 1/2 cup applesauce, similar to another reviewer and had my doubts b/c the dough was very sticky even after I added extra flour, but these cookies turned out very tasty! My daughter liked them better than our usual healthy cookie option and that one has chocolate chips! I will still play with the ratio of butter/applesauce because I like a criper cookie - these are very cake-like in texture, but really very good even with the lower fat alteration!

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Wow! I hesitated b/c of the carrots, I didn't think that sounded good, but in my quest to make healthy and quick breakfasts for our morning commute to work and school, I gave these a try - wonderful! So many recipes aren't quite "healthy" and if they are, they don't have the flavor - this has both! I will puree the carrots next time b/c my daughter did question the orange color in her muffin. I lied and told her they were a new kind of apple I bought - that worked for her. I did not use raisins b/c of preference, had no apple butter, so used apple sauce, and used half the sugar - SO good, can't wait to try these with the apple butter instead. I made them in a muffin top muffin pan and that made them the perfect size to bite into. I am so glad to have a healthy AND tasty muffin -I can't wait to try variations. The recipe is more labor intensive than other muffin recipes, but worth it, and I can always double batch.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
looks like a lot of us were making soup on the 25th! I was so happy with the ease of this recipe and even picky 7 year old ate it (she'll eat anything with cheese and/or chips). I had leftover chicken and I used tomato sauce instead of salsa (we're not salsa people) and it was very good with the substitution. It was also a substantial soup, but not heavy. I'll add beans next time too.

Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
MMMM, Mommy, you have to make these again! That's the quote I got from my 7 year old. I altered the recipe to make it a little more healthy - white whole wheat flour, 3/4 cups brown sugar - no white sugar, 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup applesauce - even so, the muffins were wonderful and the butterscotch was a nice companion to the pumpkin.

Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
These were fantastic. I followed recipe as written. The cookies came out crackle-topped, thin, and crispy-chewy (the think interior was a little chewy, with a mostly crispy outside - perfect) and with great flavor (I only mildly like molasses). I thought they were too chewy out of the oven and I put them back in, keeping one out just to taste. After a minute I did taste my sampler to find that the cookies crisp up upon cooling, so in total, my cookies baked for 14 minutes and were perfect.

Plum Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
My whole family really liked this, but I was disappointed b/c I couldn't taste the plum - and I pureed 8 plums! I used extra plums in place of most of the oil and just used 3 Tb of butter. So, even with extra plums, there was no plum flavor I could detect. It was a great, moist, spice cake - but not plum-y. I gave it a high rating though, b/c everyone loved it not knowing what it was - the cake was gone by the end of an evening!

Brown Rice Hot Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
REALLY good! I made almost exactly as described except I didn't bake it - after I mixed everything together (used slow-cooking brown rice - sauted everything else together while rice was cooking), it was so good, I left it like that. It does taste a lot like stuffing and really spruced up plain old brown rice. Great flavors together, and easy to make.

Vegan Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
I'm not vegan, but used this recipe and it was fabulous - like eating marzipan in cake form. Being not vegan, I used cow's milk in place of the almond milk (which did not curdle), but did everything else the same - except used almond extract instead of vanilla. Loved the texture, the flavor, and ingredients (going to buy almond milk tonight). Will be my go-to cupcake recipe, especially for my lactose intolerant nephew (ironically his sister is allergic to coconut!).
