Curried Cumin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
I just made these with the recommended spices, but it was quite bland. Next time I will double the spices and add fresh minced garlic. Hope this is helpful! This recipe has potential, I'll try again. :)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I substituted butter for the shortening. Added 1 tsp vanilla. Replaced 1/2 cup of white flour with whole wheat. And increased the oats to 2 3/4 cups. I added some of the batter to vanilla ice cream...delicious! It replaces my favorite ice cream flavor: outrageous oatmeal cookie. You must try! :D Thank you.

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
These are delicious! My changes: 1 tbs sunflower oil, 1 tbs sesame oil (omega 3's!) used almonds instead of sunflower seeds. Added 2 tbs coconut flakes. doubled the cinnamon. Substituted half the flour for flax seed meal (protein!) for the fruit....I did 3 tbs raisins and 3 tbs dried papaya. Amazing! I can't wait to experiment with other nuts, fruits, extracts, etc. Thank you:D

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce with Honey

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
I just made this sauce to go with fresh spring rolls. Because I did not have any rice vinegar I used 1 Tbs white vinegar and 1 Tbs red wine vinegar. Making a bunch of different sauces for our meal tonight, this was by far the most popular and will be made again! :D Thank you for a delicious recipe.

Breakfast Porridge

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Reading over the recipe I realized that I did not specific the need to grind the flax seed first. Sorry! I use about a tbs of GROUND flax seed or flax seed meal. Thanks for clarifying that Brenda:)

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
I'm sorry, but this pizza dough was not very good. Way too chewy and didn't rise at all.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
My family absolutely loved this sauce. I am only giving it 4 stars because I modified it a bit: 1 large clove garlic, only 2 tbs olive oil, 1 medium chopped onion, and probably doubled the spices. Thanks alot for an easy recipe for my Italian family:)

Aunt Eileen's Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
This was super yummy! I only gave it a four because I modified it a bit to make it more healthy. The following are what I changed: I used three medium egglplant and scooped them out as close to the skin as possible. I also used two onions, 4 big cloves garlic, around 6 tbs black olives, 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, 1 tbs basil, 1 1/2 tbs oregano, 1 tbs rosemary, 2 tsp italian seasoning, and 1/2 cup white wine. I left out the capers and did not sprinkle the 4 tbs olive oil on top. Now for the bread crumbs. I substituted with 1/2 c rye flour, 1/2 c wheat germ, 3/4 c barley flakes. My family didn't even know and SO much healthier! I also think I may have doubled the cheese. At the end I sprinkled parmesan on the top for a great finish. To cook, I baked shells for ten minutes at 190 C, then stuffed along with sliced tomato to bake for 15 minutes, finally topped with cheese and popped it back in for the last 5 minutes or so. I most definitely recommend this recipe:D

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
I made these just a few days ago and my family LOVED them! I actually decided to do one package instant chocolate pudding mix in place of one of the vanillas. This gave them an extra chocolaty flavor. Yum! I also was in a bit of a crunch for time so I just put about half the dough in a 9x13 and baked at 350 for around 25 minutes. Until they were golden brown on top! Thanks for the recipe. My fam said it is a def keeper!

Delicious Oat Bran Cereal

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This was a great quick breakfast, with a few healthy modifications: instead of sugar substitute 1/2 t of brown sugar and 1/2 t of honey. Plus 1 tbs of wheat germ. After reading the other reviews I decided to add half of a mashed banana, yummy! Plus a half ounce of walnuts, for extra protein. I will definitely make this recipe again!
