Cardamom Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This is a fantastic recipe. I have had a lot of fun adding different things to this. So far I prefer a cup of mixed dried fruits and chopped peanuts. I began making these for my kids to eat before sporting events, but ended up having my hubby ask for more as he enjoyed them as a quick hearty breakfast before work. I even added chocolate chips by accident once not thinking about what would happen when I added the hot mixture...what a yummy accident that was! The kids liked the treat of "chocolate bars" as stirring in the heated mix melted all the chips promptly making a very yummy treat.

Vegetable Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
It is so good to find a good basic salad dressing recipe that was not just ordinary mayo. I loved this. I chopped up some hard salami from the deli as I didn't have ham, but I think I prefer the stronger taste that blended really well with the mustard based dressing. Very very good!! I did blanch the veggies a bit - just because my family likes that.

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I really liked this and best of all my family of picky eaters who are afraid of anything that may be remotely healthy! They were filling too, so everyone only ate 1 - which meant we had leftovers for the toaster the next day!

Sweet Potato Minestrone

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Very inventive soup...easy to substitute or add whatever to. I found this trying to find a way to use up leftover sweetpotatoe. BTW: EASY SWEET POTATOE PEELING METHOD...Slice through the skin all the way around the potatoe at the middle. Kind of alike a sliced belt around the middle. Place in boiling water for about 20 minutes. Take one by one out and place right into a bowl of ice water. Once the skin is cool enough to touch it..pick up the potatoe at the slice and simply squeeze off the skin. Slipps right off and no peeling needed! Saves me tons of time in the kitchen when making any kind of boiled potatoe. Then you can just slice or dice for whatever dish or mash away.

Finnish Nissua

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I have made this for gifts and have brought to Christmas partys. In using it for the partys...I split the frosting up and die them green and red and drizzle over the top. Looks very festive. I find it tastes best the same day, so it has to be made and eaten.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Fantastic! I have tried countless bread recipes over the past months, making a new recipe every week trying to find the right one. I have tried complicated ones where I had to melt butter to a certain temp even and those all turned out no where near as good as this recipe and this recipe was very easy!!! This is the first bread I will be able to slice and make sandwiches with. Turns out soft and wonderful and I cannot tell you how happy I am to not have to look for a recipe anymore! I divided this in half so it made a batch of buns for bbq's and 2 loaves of bread. I also add bacon bits and cheddar cheese after it has risen to make a great breakfast toast. UPDATE: I have now begun using half white flour and half fresh ground whole wheat flour. It still turns out great and most as long as you kneed long enough for the gluten to get elastic! I don't even have to add potatoe flakes or dough enhancer with this recipe. I began putting all the dry ingredients premeasured into zip lock bags. Then just proof the yeast and add bacon grease and it is ready to go.
