French Baguettes

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
I followed another commenter's instructions and put on the egg wash immediately before baking and then cut the slits using kitchen shears. This makes two smallish loaves. I baked them on parchment on top of my baking stone. The crust was really nice and crisp. After they sit for awhile the crust gets softer. Keep this in mind when determining serving time.

Wonderful Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I made these because they used buttermilk which I happened to have on hand. Unfortunately they did not turn out crispy as indicated. They were soft, and eggy as some others have mentioned. I am beginning to want to avoid all waffle recipes where they have you whip egg whites. This seems to happen a lot to me with those type of recipes.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
I made this today using some of the modifications recommended by others. I used 1/4 cup honey, 1 teas salt, 2 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup bread flour, 2T softened butter instead of the oil and added 1 Tablespoon vital wheat gluten. The rest was unchanged. I ran the bread machine on the dough cycle, pulled the dough out, punched it down and put it in a greased loaf pan. I allowed it to rise until it reached the top of the pan--it took almost an hour. Then baked for 25 min at 350. It was really good. Thank you.

Cajun Fried Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I'm sorry to say this was very bland. I tried the modifications recommended by other reviewers and started with the onion, green pepper, and celery in olive oil until the onion was soft. Then I added garlic and cajun seasoning and the other ingredients (no cumin). It just had no depth at all.

Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Made this with some alterations based on other's comments: 2 1/4 cup flour, 3/4 cup cocoa, used brewed and cooled coffee instead of water, used 3/4 cup brown and 3/4 white sugar,1 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup butter melted and cooled, and 1 cup chocolate chips. It was very good--more like a cupcake.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
These are not very much like cookies--more like very small cakes. Appearance-wise they look funny. They rise quite a lot. They taste better after sitting for awhile--they become very moist.

Country Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
I made these for my picky eater son who is six. I made them with the streusel topping (2 T flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teas cinnamon, 4 teas. butter). He loved them. The ironic part is that I did not like them because of the cloves. So it just goes to show you it is a personal preference thing. Changes I made per the other comments: used 1/2 cup brown and 1 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil, 15 oz can pumpkin, 1/4 cup milk (no water), 3 cups ultragrain flour (instead of AP), and increased cinnamon to 1 teaspoon. I also omitted the walnuts and raisins.

Squash Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
This was absolutely delicious! I could not really taste the squash but that was the great part because maybe my picky eater will eat it! I used 2 cups ultragrain flour and 1 cup bread flour. I used the dough cycle of my bread machine. I used 1/3 plus 1 T warm milk since I wasn't blooming the yeast (I used rapid rise yeast). I overstretched the dough trying to braid it so I ended up with a ring but it looks so beautiful you can't tell I messed up. Soft, wonderful bread!

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
My review is based on a modified recipe. Based on the multitude of comments, I made several changes. I used 3 cups diced strawberries, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 teas cinnamon, and 1/2 cup veg oil plus 3/4 cup applesauce. I used a white whole wheat type flour for mine. It turned out fine. I think I could have added another 1 cup of diced strawberries and it would have been even better. I liked the pecans in it. If I was using a regular white flour (AP) then I probably would reduce the sugar more. This produced two smaller loaves for me. They were maybe half the size of the pans. However, the loaves did not seem overly dense.

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Tasted great and looked pretty, but I wish there were more blackberries. Next time I might try doubling them, but I need to confirm if other things need to be doubled as well.

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
This is my fave go-to recipe for cornbread. I make it exactly as in the recipe and it turns out great.

Pork Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I made this with red peppers and orange peppers (4 total) instead of the asparagus. I also doubled the celery and onion. I thought the pepper taste was too strong, so I will avoid using so many next time if I make it again. Unfortunately my family were not fans of this.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I made this with multiple modifications which were as follows: 3 1/2 cups oats, 1 cup Rice Krispies, 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup flaxseed meal, 1/4 cup oat bran, omit butter, use 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce, use 1/4 cup honey, omit brown sugar, use 1/2 cup turbinado sugar, add two egg whites. Line pan with parchment (overlap sides for easy removal later). Otherwise, follow recipe as written. Press into pan firmly before baking, remove from oven at about nine minutes and press again, and press again when you remove it from oven. Cut into bars while warm (in pan), refrigerate to cool fully, THEN remove from pan by pulling up parchment. I really like this recipe with the modifications, and hope to further reduce the sugar content.

Chicken Tetrazzini IV

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
I have made a stovetop version of this that I really like. This was pretty good, but took longer than the stovetop version. A couple things that I changed. Once the butter was melted, I added 1/4 cup fine chopped celery and 1/4 cup fine chopped onion (shallots would be really good too). Once those were tender, I added 8 oz sliced mushrooms and cooked until tender. I omitted the canned mushrooms. These things increased the cook time but really do a lot for the flavor.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
My kids loved this! I made a few modifications to save myself time. I used 2 cups cubed cooked chicken and skipped step 2. I used frozen peas and carrots (2 cups) instead of using fresh carrots. I just put them in the pie shell with the cooked chicken and didn't cook them at all. They were partially defrosted from leaving them on the counter during prep. And, in step 3, I cooked the celery with the onions. I used the Pillsbury rolled pie crusts and it worked great. It took about 45 minutes in my oven.
