Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
DELICIOUS!!! I made this recipe a couple of days before Thanksgiving & kept the potatoes in the refrigerator til the morning of - then reheated them in my crock pot until ready to serve. Received rave reviews -even from my son-in-law who considers himself a mashed potato connoisseur.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
My husband made this a couple of nights ago & made no changes to the recipe. The result was a soup so delicious it could be served in a restaurant! This is now one of our favorite recipes.

Power Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I made these the first time just to see what a cookie with beans as the main ingredient would be like. We liked the first attempt well enough to make again with tweaking - have made 4 times now & here are my final tweaks: 2 tsp vanilla, 2 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 C raisins & 3/4 C applesauce. Without doubling the vanilla & cinnamon, cookies were just sweet with no flavor. The applesauce adds enough liquid to make the dough workable - 3/4 C raisins is just because we like raisins - I imagine many other dried fruits could probably be substituted. It's important to not mix the dough one second more than necessary as over mixing results in a tough, spongy cookie. I scoop the cookies out with a tablespoon & flatten them a bit once they're on a parchment lined cookie sheet. I usually get about 45 cookies & in my oven 15 minutes is the perfect time for baking. Great with coffee! These are not free food, however. I did a rough estimate of calories, carbs, protein & fiber & the calorie/carb to protein/fiber ratio, while better than an Oreo, is not in a dieter's favor.
