B Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2012
I had to substitute some things as I did not have all the ingredients. Ground up All Bran in a coffee grinder to make the 1 1/2 cups wheat bran. Ground up oatmeal to make the oat bran. Used 2/3 cup milk with 1/3 cup sour cream and 1tbsp. vinegar in place of buttermilk. Also used 2 bananas. They turned out GREAT! Moist and delicious and healthy! Love it!

Yummy. Reminds me of an Oh Henry bar! Next time I am going to try adding some rolled oats.

Oatmeal Fruit Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
Darn you cookie recipe. You conquered my otherwise impenetrable wall of willpower. Ate 3 cookies in a row - something I never do. These cookies are fantastic. One slight change - decrease the white sugar to 1/2 cup. With all the fruit and coconut, they are plenty sweet without that extra sugar.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Really good! I only gave it 4 stars because I only added 1 tsp. salt as I felt 2 tsp. was way too much. I was right - if I had used 2 tsp. as the recipe states, it would have been inedible. Even with just 1 tsp. the soup was a little too salty (and I love salt!). I think it really depends on your chicken stock. The recipe should say "salt to taste" rather than specify 2 tsp. Anyway, it was very delicious - great flavour!

Spiced Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
Agree - would rate this 5 stars except the spices need to be increased substantially. I used 1 tsp. of all the spices, and it's perfect in my opinion - nice spice flavour. I also did what another reviewer suggested (I usually do this anyway) - decrease the oil to 1/4 cup and increase the applesauce to 1/2 cup to compensate. It's perfectly moist this way and much less fat.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Made this a second time and definitely much better with these changes: Replace half the oil with 1/2 cup applesauce - much less fat and you won't even notice. Reduce sugar to 2 cups - plenty sweet! Can't imagine it with 3 cups! Double all spices - I might even triple next time. ----------- Very good recipe. I think it would be better with more spices and less fat. For most recipes, I cut the fat in half and use applesauce or pumpkin puree or yogourt to make up the other half. Cuts the fat significantly.

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
Yum! I took another reviewers advice and did not use the pastry shell (didn't have on on hand). So it was more of a crisp than a pie. I also added 1 cup fresh blueberries that I had on hand. Delicious!

Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Great recipe but only with revisions, hence only 4 stars. I followed another reviewers advice and I can't imagine it would have been successful had I not. I used 9 peaches - that's a whole lot more than 3!! I only used 1 cup sugar in the peaches which was more than ample, and 2 tsp. cinnamon. I only used 3/4 cup sugar in the batter, again more than sufficient. I only used 1 cup of boiling water - 2 cups would definitely have been too much. My peaches were very ripe so there was a lot of juice from the peaches. I baked it in a 9 x 13 inch pan.

These were just OK. Nothing special. Tasted just like an ordinary banana muffin.

Apple Bavarian Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Well, here's a strange one. My husand HATES butter - won't eat anything with butter in it, even if he can't taste it - just knowing there's butter in something will keep him away. So I didn't tell him there was butter in the crust and was nervous because I found it very buttery tasting - but he loved it and didn't mention anything about it being buttery tasting. I asked him to rate it and he gave it 5 stars!! The irony is I LOVE butter - and yet I found the crust tasted much too buttery and the filling was just OK. I gave it 3 stars. I've made much better desserts. So I chose the happy medium and gave it 4 stars.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
Review #3 - Ok, this is now my "go to" banana bread recipe. I almost always make a bread rather than muffins. These are the small changes I make to make them healthier and (in my humble opinion), tastier! - I use brown sugar rather than white. - I add about 1/3 cup ground flax - Decrease oil to 1/3 cup - Increase yogurt to 3/4 cup and use vanilla yogurt - Add about 2 tbsp. rum instead of vanilla Bake for 45 min. at 350. Watch as oven temps vary. Review #2 - made these a second time except I added pecans and made it into a loaf. Fantastic again. Review #1 - Made them exactly as directed and they were fantastic! Only thing is I did not get anywhere near 16 muffing - only got 10 - as I like my muffins with nice big muffin tops so I fill them quite full. And like another reviewer, I don't use paper liners - just non-stick pan rubbed with a bit of butter. Much better!

Chicken Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
This was fabulous and easy! I made a few slight changes: I added the sale and 2 cloves garlic and 1/2 an onion to the water when the chicken was boiling - makes the chicken much more flavourful. I also added about 1 1/2 cups mushrooms (I had portabellos on hand) - sauteed them first with a bit of olive oil and a clove of garlic and added this to the stew. I used another reviewers suggestion and used basil and sage in the dumplings instead of parsley. Delicious!! My husband loved it - daughter loved it.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Delicious. As other reviewers have mentioned, be sure to chop the kale fine as it is a fairly tough green, and I also cooked it longer, again because it was still tough after 15 minutes. It did lose it's beautiful bright green colour but at least it was softer. Flavour of this soup is fantastic. I used white kidney beans as I couldn't find the ones asked for. Worked great.
