Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2013
Good! Moist & yummy but a bit heavy on the cloves - my three year old ate them and I'm inclined to give 'em five stars just for that!

Pumpkin Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2012
Per other reviewers I cut the ginger in half, and subbed apple sauce for juice (x2). This is so easy and delicious! I've spent big bucks on this stuff and will be making my own from now on : )

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Awesome - my first bread pudding and first attempt at at water bath - awesome! Added 1 extra banana and 1 additional egg and used hot dog buns (after some research). Out-freaking-standing! This will become a holiday recipe and I thank you much for sharing it : )

Mom's Creamy Asparagus Spread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
I'd give it 4 stars for being somewhat bland, but it gets 5 for a dip you don't have to dip veggies in to get your veggies. Added a dash of S & P & cayenne, maybe next time add parmesan cheese? Great idea for something different than the same old dips : )

Pasta Salad II

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
YUM...I was skeptical about the Old Bay - it's a staple in my pantry but have never used it for anthing but seafood and would never have come up with this. Oh how narrow my vision has been lol! I forgot the cheese (!?!?) and it's still excellent. I'm sure it'll be a BBQ hit - thanks for sharing!!

Smoky Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
These are very good; very moist even without sour cream and butter, which taste great but add way too much fat. I was out of liquid smoke (yikes! - a staple after being a veg for years) so I subbed a dry mesquite seasoning. I've never thought of adding salsa to corn bread (although I've added almost everything else)! This is my new healthier fave - thanks!

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Unreal - I had my reservations but this is awesome (and it hasn't even chilled yet)! I halved the salt & pepper based on other reviews, and left out the lemon juice because I generally hate it. I will try this dressing on other veggie salads - Those who reviewed suggesting you carry the recipe with you when serving it were right on - VERY good!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
These are amazingly easy, healthy and delicious! I'm preggers and try to satisfy my occasional sweet tooth in healthy ways, and this is perfect. I did sub milk choc chips (naughty) for dates, and subbed applesauce for about 1/2 the oil. I MUST freeze theese because I can't stop eating them. YUM...Thank you!!!

Corn Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
The ratio of corn to "other stuff" in my pantry was out of control, and I had a bunch of crackers to use up from the holidays, so although I changed this up a lot to use stuff I had on hand, it's awesome! I used 1c cottage cheese instead of shredded, and 3 canned chipotles (in adobo w/seeds) in place of chiles and cayenne pepper. Also threw in a couple diced radishes. YUM - very different but a nice flavor, although I am a cumin adict! Thanks for sharing this - easy and inexpensive munchie...would love to try with fresh roasted corn!

Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I made this for Christmas dinner and it was excellent! I used a sun-dried tomato and feta dressing instead of Italian, added radishes (had a taste for them...I know weird), used all the black olives called for (YUM) and about 4oz feta. Super fresh and light enough to serve with spinach alfredo lasagna roll ups (from allrecipes also!), but filling enough for leftover lunches. Delish; this will be a regular for me in the summer, and a great alternative to the same ole mixed greens salad (which does not keep well)!

Spaghetti Squash Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I made it as written; it was cheesey and good but missing something. I put the leftovers in a small dip crock pot and added green onions, ground black pepper and worcestershire. Better. I think this is way worth making for such a creative use of spaghetti squash, just needs a little tweaking. I will make this again and keep experimenting... :)

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
This was ridiculously easy and awesome! Gave as gifts and was well received. I used Fuji apples so cut the sugar in 1/2 and did use both brown and white sugar. Makes the house smell amazing!!!

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
Excellent! I made this for Christmas dinner and was told it was restaurant quality. I subbed roasted garlic for the mozz (smashed up in the oil). I did not proof my yeast but was sure to add warm water to the mix. This was deadly good and I'm sure would make an awesome pizza crust. I will make this OFTEN - Thank you!

Honey Corn Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I made muffins and got rave reviews from friends, even though I subbed hominy for corn as I had none... even bf loved them despite his hominy phobia. I added about a half t crushed red pepper. I usually doctor up a mix but had none, and these turned out awesome...thx!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Awesome! I love cooking but baking is a challenge for me...I bought fresh soda for this and it rocks. BF insisted on butterscotch chips (ugh...way too sweet), but I'm still eatin em! Gonna try with dried banana chips and white chocolate chips...thank you much for a cookie that I can actually serve without apologizing for something!

Baked Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
I was skeptical...I've done this with flour torts but tried it with corn...Can you say crispy?! They were super good - I just sprayed with hot pepper olive oil spray (clearance shelf at wally world) and sea salt. I would never have tried this with corn torts and I thank you!!

Jalapeno Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
Outrageously good! I cut the recipe in half but still added 1/2 cup (heaping) minced jalapenos (seeds in), and used some cubed cheese as well. Made large rolls and YUM...I work at a Tex-Mex joint and my co-workers loved it too! Quite a bit of heat but easily mellowed by seeding/cutting back on peppers. Thanks much for sharing this!

Soft Giant Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
These turned out pretty good despite a problem; they totally stuck to the paper towels I drained them on. So I boiled them longer, about 30 sec, and plopped them right onto a greased cookie sheet. I think next time I would knead in more flour, also, as they were very fluffy. They were pretty good though, and I will try again.
