Apple, Carrot, Or Zucchini Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
LOVE this! I'm aiming for healthy, so my adjustments are as follows: half white flour & half wheat, 1 cup brown sugar (PLENTY sweet!), about 1/3 cup Canola oil + apple sauce to equal required 1/2 cup, added about 1 cup of raisins, which contributes to the sweetness. Used 1 apple, 1 medium yellow zucchini, 2 large carrots, to equal 4 cups combined. All other ingredients the same. Baked for 35 minutes.

Cinnamon-Raisin Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
Very moist coffee cake. A bit too sweet for my taste, and I cut back the 2/3 cup sugar to less than half, since there is also sugar in the topping. The raisins add to the sweetness, as well. I did substitute 1/4 cup wheat flour for 1/4 cup of AP and used 1/4 cup Canola oil, 1/4 cup applesauce. By mistake, I put ALL the "topping" in the middle, so there was no topping. Dusted it with a little powdered sugar. Baked about 28 minutes.

Strawberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
VERY good. I'm making all things "healthier" these days, but even with changes, these muffins are light and fluffy, which is not what I expected. I used half whole wheat flour & half white, replaced half the Canola oil with applesauce, used only half cup brown sugar (we don't like things too sweet), and I DID add 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Also added 1/3 cup chopped walnuts -- healthy oils!

Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
LOVE it! Used Canola oil, rather than butter, 2 Tbsp ground flax, to replace equal amount of flour, and increased cinnamon to 1 tsp. Used 2/3 cup brown sugar. Super moist! Glass pan, 325 for 50 minutes. Sprinkled powdered sugar on top.

Enchilada Casserole III

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Used can of red enchilada sauce, rather than dry pkg mix, added can of green chilies, some cumin, and cilantro, as we like these flavors in our enchiladas. Seemed a 4 star for me, because of the refried beans texture, but that's a personal taste thing, and the rest of the family really liked it. Thanks!

Applesauce Oat Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Haven't tasted it yet, but adult son says it's really good. Smells wonderful! Didn't ice this, and I cut brown sugar to 1/2 cup, added 1/2 cup of raisins, which provides a natural sweetness, and 1/2 tsp allspice. Also used butter. Thanks! **UPDATE: Love the denseness! Great spice cake and would be great with cream cheese or vanilla frosting. I just sprinkled powdered sugar and topped with whipped cream -- less sugar, was my purpose.

Creamy Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
I'm looking for healthy, so I made changes. Sauteed onion in butter, didn't use flour, used milk (less calories & fat), and chopped up fresh spinach. Very tasty. Next time I may use chicken broth, so there's not MSG from the bouillon.

French Toast I

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2012
I grew up with this recipe, using nutmeg and no cinnamon, so that's how I've made it since I was 12. Love it!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IX

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Used 1/2 Canola oil, half apple sauce, added 1 cup walnuts, and 1/2 tsp allspice, but followed the recipe, other than those adjustments. Baked 8 minutes. Really enjoyed them.

Seafood Creole

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
Wow -- this is good stuff! I used the amount of cayenne as stated, but I tripled the oregano, thyme, and basil. I used olive oil, rather than butter.

Homemade Yogurt

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2012
I don't care for powdered milk, so I've been making this with 2% milk, which makes it thinner, but it works for me. If you use a higher ratio milk to yogurt, it thickens better, and I leave it in the gas oven with light on longer, as well. I added a banana and nutmeg, stuck it in the freezer for half an hour, and it's great for breakfast or dessert. Today I used it as a salad dressing. Love this recipe -- thank you!

Black Treacle Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
I'm looking for healthier recipes these days,and this has been sitting in my box for a while now. Give it a try! I didn't have whole wheat, so I used more oatmeal and less flour. Makes wonderful sandwich rolls -- thanks.

Beer Batter Fish Fillets

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
My husband loved this, so 5 stars. I'd give it 4, as it doesn't stay crispy very long, and I'm a baked fish kinda gal. Used Canola and olive oil combo. Vegetable oil is not allowed in my house. : )

Chocolate Oat Snack Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Very good. Used semi-sweet chocolate chips, because it's healthier. I'll probably add another tablespoon of cocoa next time. Baked 40 minutes, which was a bit too long. Brownie-like texture and, as others have mentioned, is even better the next day.

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
I've been making sauteed mushrooms, with a touch of soy sauce, for several years. Wonderful flavor. Sometimes I use olive oil, rather than butter -- or a combination of the two. Thanks. : )

Red Cabbage and Apples

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
I'm a cabbage fan and really liked this recipe. I DID make larger chunks of cabbage, rather than shredding it, used Canola oil, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar. Also added a little garlic and more sugar & vinegar than recipe stated. Thank you for the recipe. : )

Caraway Dill Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
I couldn't help myself! When I smelled the caraway, I HAD to sub in some rye flour -- 1/2 cup, and decreased the bread flour by 1/2 cup. Used Canola oil, rather than butter, for the texture. Left out the parsley. LOVE the dill! Used dough cycle, then let round loaf second rise on cookie sheet on parchment paper. Could have put down a little cornmeal. Baked at 350 for about 23 minutes. Was great with pot roast!

Cabbage Hamburger Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Not bad, but there is NO way one can compare this to cabbage rolls' flavor. It's the tomato soup. NOT good, if you're used to more traditional Polish/Slavic cooking. I added garlic and a small can of tomato sauce, which helped some. I'll make a version of this recipe again, but I'll use stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and garlic. Thanks for a base recipe. : )

White Bread For The Bread Machine

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Great texture, good flavor. May use a little more salt next time. Used dough cycle, then baked in buttered bread pan at 350 for 20 minutes. Sliced when fully cooled, and it sliced wonderfully for sandwiches.
