Morning Glory Muffins II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
Like many others, I made my own special changes. I chopped up a very ripe mango that was hanging out in my fruit bowl, a 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, 1/2 C. Dried cranberries, used 1/2 C. Whole wheat flour instead of 1/2 C. of white flour and used 1/2 C. Brown sugar in place of 1/2 C. Of the white. OMG, Delish! Like one of the other reviewers said, this is a great recipe for using up what's in your fruit bowl. Next time I might try some applesauce or yougurt instead of oil to make it healthier. But really perfection as is! I made these to take on a road trip, but I doubt they will last long enough to make it to the car :-)

Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
So easy and delicious. I used my blender to process it for just a few pulses. I only used 1/4 cup of sugar, because we don't like our applesauce too sweet.

Zucchini Gingerbread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Different than traditional zucchini bread, but so delicious. I used half zucchini and half yellow squash because that's what I had on hand. This is a keeper.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
I followed the lead of the other reviewers, but I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar and about 2 tablespoons of flour. I rolled the uncooked cookies in a bit of white sugar. They came out perfect and are so easy. They took less than 5 minutes to prepare. I just think you can't go wrong with these. Easy and delish.

Honeyed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Maybe I did something wrong but these came out swimming in a liquid fatty broth and were not flavorful at all.

Weeknight Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
My family told me this was OK, but nothing worth making again. I don't eat meat, so I can only post their opinion.

Pear Crumble

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
This was delicious and super easy to make. I took the advice of others and doubled the crumble. I also used half white sugar and half brown sugar. I wanted a slightly bigger desert so I used all 5 pears that I had in my fruit bowl. The pears came out juicy and delicious and naturally sweet. The topping was crunchy and chewy all in one. I served this piping hot from the oven with just a dab of whipped cream on top.

Spiced Parsnip Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
I didn't have any onion so i just sauteed the parsnips with a bit of onion powder. I also added about a tablespoon of molasses to give just a hint of sweetness and cut the slight bitterness of the parsnip. I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of the cream. These changes resulted in a very yummy thick cream soup. I would make this again.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
We loved this soup, and don't ordinarily love squash. I followed the lead of some others and roasted the squash. I used two squashes, sliced in halves. I splashed with olive oil and coarse ground pepper and kosher salt. Roasted cut side down for 45 minutes. The flesh was super easy to scoop out and use. I used vegetable buillion to make it a vegetarian soup. I used 1/2 the amount of cream cheese to make it a bit more calorie friendly. I didn't have cayenne, so I used about 1/2 t. hot pepper sauce. I will surely make this again.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
This was the best banana bread I've ever had. I did use 1 cup of almond flour in place of 1 cup of the all purpose flour just to make it a little healthier. This made the bread a bit more dense and flavorful. The texture and taste is sticky but not overly sweet. I will make this again.

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Super simple and yummy blueberry pie. I followed the other reviewers suggestions and used 4 Tablespoons of cornstarch, 1 Tablespoon for each cup of berries. I added a bit of lemon juice and increased the sugar to 1 Cup. This still did not make an overly sweet pie but more of a natural blueberry sweetness. I baked at 375 degrees, but the crust didn't brown as I would have liked, so next time I would bake at 400 degrees.

Scalloped Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
I had a bunch of tomatoes that were "on there way out" and was looking for a way to use them up. This turned out to be a delicious and relatively simple treat. I used wheat bread instead of white, because that's all I had. I cooked the tomatoes in the pan untll they were very soft. I also added about 1/4 cup of shredded mozzerella to the top right before baking. The result was wonderful. It tasted like eggplant parm without the eggplant. I think this would be great served right on top of spaghetti. I'm a vegeterian and this was a great find. I never thought about using tomatoes in this way before, but I will happily make this again.

Plum Clafouti

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
This recipe was super simple and super delish. I had regular red plums which are bigger than prune plums, so I only used 10 of them. I also used a tart pan instead of the pie pan. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I made it for unexpected company and it was a perfect desert. Sweet but still light enough to make it a perfect summer treat. Everyone loved the clafouti. I will put it on my must make again list.

Potato and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
This was a great hit with my family and in fact there wasn't a drop left. I didn't have cream so I used milk with a couple of spoons of sour cream to thicken. I took the suggestions of a couple of reviewers and added a bit of nutmeg, and used panko bread crumbs for crunch. My family likes just a little spice to our dishes so I also added a few drops of hot pepper sauce. The best cauliflower I've had in a long time. I will make this dish again.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2010
I followed the suggestion of some of the other reviewers and increased the liquid. This made the sauce perfect. This was a delicious replica of the chinese restaurant Beef and Broccoli that my family loves. I also tried it with chicken and it was just as great. The is a super easy recipe with great results. Will make this again and again.
