Not a flavor my family of 4 enjoyed. Sorry :(

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I just made this exactly as the recipe reads (well, I used dried cilantro instead of fresh because I don't use a lot of fresh herbs, therefore they go to waste). It is wonderful...fantastic! My husband loves it too! It is quite spicy, so if you are sensitive to spicy things like I am, you may want to halve the cayenne. Who knew 1/4 tsp. would do that?! Well, probably a lot of you ;o) I also only used one can of black beans only because I didn't read the recipe correctly and only had one can. I must say, though that an extra can would have made this more like "black beans with a little quinoa," you don't need more than one can.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
As is, this is a GREAT recipe! After making them many times, I've come up with a version that suits my family the best. I cut the brown sugar down to 1/4 of a cup, 3/4 is overkill along with the honey. I use whole wheat pastry flour in place of all purpose. I also use fewer raisins, 3/4 c. is overkill again. I use 1/4 cup of cinnamon applesauce in place of the egg (so no egg). Then add lots of natural peanut butter. So I've turned this recipe into a very wholesome, nutritious, vegan snack that we all devour. I need to make them twice a week! But I'm serious when I say that the original recipe is great ;o)

Vegan Agave Cornbread Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
These are good, but not much like corn bread. Closer to a bran muffin in my opinion. There is barely a sweetness to them. Mine were brown, not yellow at all. Overall they were good and I enjoyed snacking on them throughout the week.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
I really love these burgers. I freeze them individually in plastic wrap and then put them inside a freezer bag, this way I can take out one at a time. Such a great, go-to meal!

Wild Rice Stuffed Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
This just isn't my cup of tea. I don't think the flavors melded well together. We also think the foil over top gave it a metalic flavor, so I'd try it in a dutch oven if you have one. Sorry :(

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
I thought I reviewed this (my recipe box says I did) but I can't find it. I'll do it again since it's been a while. Anyways, these are amazing and I can't seem to keep them around long. I've made them 3 times in the few short weeks since I found the recipe! I've always loved oatmeal raisin cookies, they are my favorite cookies, but these are by far the best! And I know oatmeal raisin cookies! My 15yr old son says he doesn't like oatmeal raisin cookies, yet he loves these. The smell and taste will remind you of fall, but you will want them year round. The raw dough is amazing to eat as well (I'm a raw cookie dough kind of person).

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I don't know what I expected when I made these brownies. I guess I was expecting more of a chocolate chip cookie flavor but with a brownie texture. That is not what happened though. I do really enjoy the texture. I think the main problem is the vanilla. I should have listened to my instincts, which screamed "this is way too much vanilla." However, I really didn't want to change the recipe. You can't give a fair review if you do that, plus with so many awesome ratings I figured I shouldn't change it. I was wrong. The vanilla is so overpowering I almost feel like these should be called vanilla brownies! A tablespoon of vanilla extract is far too much. A quarter of that would do just fine. I'll consider trying this again but with far less vanilla.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
I've made chicken this EXACT way for years, and it really is the best. I do use butter instead of margarine, but I doubt there is much of a flavor difference (butter is much healthier because it's all natural, no hydrogenated fats in it).

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Wow, thanks for this recipe! My husband, 12yr old and 9yr old all gave it a thumbs up (and these are picky kids!). I did do a few modifications after reading reviews, but I'm betting it would be just as good as is :) I had 1 1/4 lbs ground beef, so I lowered the brown sugar just a tad. I did add a tsp of Worcestershire sauce to the brown sugar and ketchup mixture. I don't do meatloaf in a loaf pan, it's not my thing, so I formed a loaf in a casserole dish, mixed the brown sugar, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce together and used it as a glaze on top. I added onion powder and garlic powder to the meat (I don't like onions in meatloaf). I used 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs instead of saltines (just easier). 1/2 c. milk and 1 egg instead of how it's written.

Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
I don't have one negative thing to say about this recipe! My 2 kids, hubby and I all loved it. I need to double it for my family of 4, which allows for a few leftovers, but one recipe isn't enough for 4 people. The flour did not mix thoroughly, so the batter is lumpy, but that doesn't affect the outcome :) Thanks for the recipe!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
This was much too cheesy for my liking, but not the fault of the poster :) I was just hoping for a "hint" of parmesan, but this is so cheesy that when you eat it you have strings of cheese going from your plate to your mouth. It was a little bland as well, needs something else.

Whit's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
This was much too heavy on cheese in general, but especially the cream cheese. The cream cheese overwhelmed the flavor of the whole dish. I added some of our favorite salsa to the filling, which was much needed for flavor.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
This was ok, but my husband didn't like it. He was requesting Sloppy Joes and I didn't want it out of a can that's full of bad stuff. I'm not a Sloppy Joe fan myself, I was really making these for him. He said it just didn't taste like it should and it was too thick...not "Sloppy" enough. He didn't like the chunks of veggies in it either. But I'm glad I tried :) Thanks!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Perfect!! I used this to top a chicken pot pie. It was buttery and flaky, and super easy to make. My only problem is that it was too small for the top of my pie dish. I had to roll it thinner than I would have liked and had to pull it and push it down onto the rim of my pie dish, hoping it wouldn't shrink. It didn't, so that was good. But it was great! Next time I'll double it :)

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
We all loved this (including my husband and 12 yr old son and 9yr old daughter). This recipe is now printed and in my permanent go-to recipe binder. I used it with a flank steak, yum!

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Well, although this seems like a good idea, it just wasn't what my family likes. It really is too dense. It was much like having a bagel pizza on a whole wheat bagel, the dense kind. And there is no flavor. I know that many reviewers mentioned that they added things to the crust and I think that's a good idea. Anyway, it was fun to make and I'm glad I gave it a try :) However, my 12yr old son is eating a bowl of cereal right now because he couldn't manage to eat an entire slice ;o)

Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
I'd never made fried chicken before and this recipe made it easy! It tasted great, was juicy and crispy. My husband wouldn't stop eating it! Thanks!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I made these exactly as the recipe is written and my 2 kids (ages 9 and 12) and my husband and I all loved them! This was my first attempt at making biscuits from scratch and I'm so glad I used this recipe. We haven't had biscuits in so long because of how unhealthy the store bought ones are. Thanks for a great recipe!
