Applesauce Oatie Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Delish! I modified a little to make a bit more healthy of a snack for my 18 mo old twins, and used 1/2 c reg flour and 1 c whole wheat flour. Used 1/2 tsp additional cinnamon, a little vanilla, about a spoon full of vanilla yogurt (I thought it looked a little dry), and left out the chocolate chips, nuts, and raisins. A keeper recipe. *edit* Just made these with a small chopped up apple (about a cup).. it is a wonderful replacement if you don't use raisins. I also added a dash or two of cloves.. these are still one of my favorites to bake :)

Chicken with Peas and Quinoa

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
I am not a big fan of quinoa, I've tried to cook it a few different ways.. this was the best I have done. I cut up bnls skls chicken breast and let it sit in some evoo, garlic, minced onion, paparika and a little black pepper for about 30 min. Used 1c broth, per other reviewer, and Prego "Chunky Garden- tomato, onion and garlic". Had to cook longer for my quinoa to be done.. but good, easy dish. Sprinkled grated parm on top.

Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
I made some changes, based on other reviews and my own thoughts.. talk about awesome soup! Cooked about 2 cloves garlic with the onion and butter. Cooked the broccoli with the potatoes, when that was done - Used 4c water, 1c milk. Whisked about 1 tbs cornstarch into 1/4c milk, then added into pot. Not much salt, but extra course ground pepper. Added some cooked carrots and about 16oz of chopped (chunky ham), and the normal cheese. Never puree'd 1/2 the soup like suggested. BEST potato soup I have ever made!

Used 1/2 ap flour, 1/2 ww. 1c quick/instant oats, about 1 1/2c reg rolled oats. 1/4 tsp nutmeg and a few dashes clove. 1c pumpkin. Didn't have wheat germ, so used 1/2c milled flax seed.

Yum! *update, also tried 1/4 oil 1/4 applesauce, then extra 1/2c applesauce ..and about 1 cup/2 apples cloarsly shredded with everything else as above (except pumpkin).. awesome stuff

Honey Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
Love this recipe, have made it several times. I marinate the chicken in some evoo, a little soy, splash of oj, pepper, garlic, onion. I cook the frozen veggies in the microwave to save time (while rice and chicken are cooking). I use the tips of adding a little ginger and cayenne, and of using oj instead of water with the cornstarch.

Crunchy Oven Fried Tilapia

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Pretty darn good. I thought it was as close to fried as you could get for baked. I added more seasoning/spices, even dill in with the cornmeal. Used foil to line cookie sheet, baked 10 min, then put in broiler for 1-2 min.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
I have made it just as written several times, always a big hit. I bake it in a sided cookie sheet (takes 18-20min), like other reviews. This time I wanted to adjust it to make it healthier (for just my family). Used 2c ww flour, little under 1c sugar and added a little br sugar. 1/2 oil and 1/2 applesauce. Added some nutmeg, little clove, heaping tbs milled/ground flax seed. Only used 3 eggs. Then threw in some mini choc chips :) Not nearly as good as the original, but my young kids don't mind.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
Yum! I health-a-fied it up some, too. Used 2 c ww flour and 1 c ap flour. Used 1 c br sugar and 1/2 c white. Replaced 1/2 the oil with applesauce. Sprinkled in some nutmeg. And I even put in some shredded yellow squash that I needed to use up. Made muffins with the same temp, at 20-25 min like another reviewer suggested.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Used evoo instead of veg oil. Great marinade! Let it soak for about 4 hrs. Didn't marinate the veggies I used, just coated them with evoo. Also used minced garlic (all I had on hand).

Southwestern Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
Easy and filling. We like ours rolled up in whole wheat soft tortillas. Per other suggestions, while browning the meat with the garlic and onion, I added a few dashes of taco seasoning. I used only 1 can of reduced sodium black beans, and maybe about 10oz of frozen corn, only 8oz sour cream (all I had of those). I mixed in some more dashes of taco seasoning in the whole mix. Layered 1/2 mixture, chips (just enough to cover layer), about 1 cup cheese, other 1/2 mixture, then another cup cheese. Turned out great!

Hamburger Potato Casserole

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
Awesome comfort food :) I added some extra seasonings (when cooking the meat), added a big spoonful of sour cream, and some shredded ched to the soup mix (I think next time I will add a little less milk because of that). I quarter sliced the potatoes so they would be easier to eat for my toddlers. And I covered with foil.. will make again for sure.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was great! I made this yesterday to take to a party last night, I am so glad I picked this recipe (I've never made an apple crisp before). It was one of the first desserts gone! My little changes were : Only used 1/4 c water, cut white sugar down to maybe 3/4 c, added a little vanilla and couple shakes of cinnamon to the topping. Added a little nutmeg to the apple mix, which I shook all that up with the apples instead of sprinkling on top. Still have apples left and thinking about making again :)

Pumpkin Cookies VI

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
I love when I find a recipe that I can make pretty healthy, thats still delish! These are thick and moist, but don't know if thats due to some changes? I used whole wheat flour, applesauce instead of butter, 1/4 c white sugar instead of 1/2 c.. but still put in choc chips :) Added about 1/2 tsp nutmeg, heaping tsp ground flax seed and used 1 tsp cin insread of 1/2.. very good, enough so that I made them last night, they are gone.. and I just pulled more out of the oven just now.. (you know, cause I had to use the rest of the remaining canned pumpkin, ha!)

Seminary Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
I used whole wheat flour, used about half the salt, added a bit of nutmeg and ground flax seed, left out the nuts (becuase of my kids) and chocolate chips - outcome was a great tasting, healthy muffin. I also mixed the oatmeal with the applesauce and let it sit for maybe 30 min first, helped soften/breakdown the oatmeal some so it wasn't as noticable in the muffin. My 17 mo old twins loved them, too :-) Thanks for sharing, definatly a keeper recipe!

Coffee Shake

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Very good, and so easy (AND much more cheap than a fancy coffee shops!) I used a little less sugar, but followed the suggestion of adding mini-chips. I also added some more ice and instant coffee. No matter what you do, this is great. I made a little to much, so I put the extra in the freezer (maybe 20 min), then decided I wanted the rest, and by then it was nice a slushy.. even better :)

Henry and Maudie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
So easy to work with, very good! Like other reviewers, changed a couple things. Used 1/2c butter and 1/4 applesauce, little under 1c br sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, few dashes nutmeg, and a coarsly shredded apple.. so then only added a little water because of that. Also added just a few sprinkles of mini-choc chips.. Yum!
