Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I microwaved it, like others said, and it was wonderful. Also, I used salted butter - the little bit of salt in the butter adds that much more flavor.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
If you follow this recipe (without making any changes) it really is excellent. The first time I made them I tried substitions to make them lower fat, and they really weren't as good. This recipe is really pretty healthy as is, anyway. Thanks for the great recipe!

Candy Bar Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
I thought this bar was really good, but I think it could be better. Next time I make it I'm adding a little salt to the oatmeal mixture, maybe 1/4 tsp, and a little salt to the chocolate/peanut butter spread, also probably 1/4 tsp. I agree with another reviewer that the vanilla could but cut in half. Also, be sure to press down hard when "patting" the oatmeal mixture into the pan. Otherwise, they will fall apart when you cut them. I tried the suggestion of coating with graham cracker crumbs (smashed a graham cracker in a ziplog bag, then dropped a square in the bag and shook around), and it helped tremendously with the messy factor, without changing the taste.

Chocolate Chip Cake Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I used a butter recipe cake mix, and it came out tasting like artificial butter. Perhaps a regular yellow cake mix would be better. Also, it was very sweet but without very much depth of flavor (other than fake butter). I think adding a little salt and using dark brown sugar would help the overall flavor.

Black Bean Spinach Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Wow! This was great! I was so surprised when I first bit into it, because I thought it would taste like a typical mexican dish. But somehow this combination of flavors ends up tasting much more complex, almost gourmet. I think it's one of the best things I've ever made. I did make a few substitutions, due to lack of ingredients on hand, but I don't think these substitutions drastically changed the basic flavors. I used a couple of Costco whole wheat rollups instead of the pizza crust, which I brushed with olive oil. I used Chipotle Tobasco for the hot sauce. And I used parmeggiano reggiano instead of monterey jack. I added a little leftover rotisserie chicken for my meat-loving husband. Also, FYI, I used good quality Vermont sharp white cheddar cheese. I used the food processor to pulse the black bean mixture, added the onion to that and about half the salsa to smooth it into a paste. Again, I know these were changes to the original recipe, but I just thought the food processor was easier than the mashing and chopping by hand. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Fava Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2006
This salad was fantastic! Rinsing the beans in a strainer under running water prevents the "goopy" problem another reviewer had mentioned.

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
These turned out pretty good. They were a little more sugary than I prefer.

Cucumber Sandwiches I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2005
These were a hit at a party I brought them to. I, too, added a sprig of fresh dill on top of each slice of cucumber.

Ramen Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2004
The leftover salad is great heated up the next day. The soggy noodles seem "right" once the dish is hot. Just microwave a serving for about 45 seconds.
