Apple Oatmeal Bar Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I read that it was dry so I doubled the applesause and I added peanut butter and it was stuff extremely dry and floury. I might try it again, because I liked the flavor, but maybe with less oatmeal and a bit less flour? I don't know.

Creamy Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This was wonderfully easy. I used a can of Condensed Cheddar Cheese instead of broccoli and I didn't have any bread crumbs so I smashed up some cruttons and used those (basically the same thing right). I grated my parm cheese in big peices and used more than a half a cup. I served the chicken with rice and drissled the creamy sauce over the rice.

Italian Wedding Soup II

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I liked this recipe a lot. My six year old son went back for seconds. Even my picky brother liked it. I used spinach because it was easy to pick up at the store, used some home made chicken broth that I had left over from something else and I added acini de pepe pasta. I'm sure it'd have been good without it as well, but we're a pasta family so I'll always make it with.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
This turned out really good. I used two regular bread loafs and cooked it like the other user said for 1 hr and 20 mins. I think next time I'll do it for fifteen minutes less because the ends were more done than I'd have liked. I also used 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/2 cup oil and added nutmeg and cloves.

Cranberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
This was good. I don't recommend flouring the pan, because mine turned out a bit tough around the edges, where there was flour. I used dried cranberries because none of the stores around will carry cranberries until a bit closer to the holidays, even frozen. The only other thing I did was replace half of the oil with applesauce.

Chocolate Zucchini Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
I made 8 loaves of Zucchini bread, with 4 different recipes and this one was my favorite. I wasn't sure about it to start with either because I'm not a huge chocolate fan. I used 1/2 white and 1/2 brown sugar. I used only 1/2 cup veg oil but added 1 cup applesauce. I added a splash of nutmeg and ground cloves. For the chocolate chips. I just left them until the end, after the batter was poured into pan and I spread them out over the top, some sank some didn't, but it was perfect that way. I will definitely used this one again.

Creamy Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This was better than expected. I loved the curry, even though I was nervous about it. I used a butternut squash and I used cream cheese instead of sour cream (mainly because I wasn't paying attention, but it worked). I also used a whole pack of bacon instead of just the three strips.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
It was by far the prettiest apple pie I'd ever made (and I've made plenty) and the taste was up there with it. It turned out almost Carmel- sweet, but not too sweet. This'll be the recipe I use from now on. Very few alterations: I used mostly Granny Smith apples, but threw in a few Braeburns. I used cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice as well for more flavor. For the sauce, I put 3/4 of the sauce over the apples before adding the top, then put the last of it over the top of the crust. Definitely make sure you have a tray (with foil for easy cleaning) under it, because it was full and bubbly.

Raisin Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
This was good, but mine turned out kind of gooey, even though I cooked it plenty. I used the servings calculator to reduce how much I made and maybe that was the problem. My son loved it none the less. He ate nearly the entire thing.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Last year I used a different recipe and I was the only one who liked it. This time even people who don't like cranberry sauce liked this. To accommodated their picky tastes I did leave out the pecans and dried fruit (though I think the pecans would be wonderful). I also used 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. And only 1/2 cup of water (because my cranberries were frozen for a week before I used them and were juicy). I didn't puree the orange, I just chopped it into small pieces and cooked it like that.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
This was good. I'd never made it before, but I'll make it again for sure. I doubled the recipe but not the beans, like someone else mentioned. I didn't use the cumin, but I did add red pepper flakes which gave it a nice spicy kick. I found it too salty with the broth (I used chicken since that's what I had) and adding salt, and I didn't add much either. I think next time I'm going to use 3/4 of the broth and 1/4 water to tone that down. I think that I'm going to add tomatoes next time as well. My 5 and 7 year old kids like this a lot as well. We served it with broiled cod and salad. Yum.

Carrot Cake XI

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
So I didn't like this when it first came out. I added some cream cheese frosting and let it sit for day and it was better. It was too moist for me at first and I don't think it was because it was undercooked. It's possible I messed up my measurements (I have kids and was multitasking) but I am not new to baking, so it's weird that I would have. I did use 1 cup of applesauce and only 1/3 cup of oil and did not add the walnuts. I think I'll try it again soon though.

Curry Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2011
The flavor was really good- I love curry. Instead of olive oil I fried a pound of bacon, took the bacon out and used that oil. I added the bacon to the mix with the beans. I had a bit of troubles with this because I was trying to do it in a crock pot, but that had nothing to do with the recipe (I don't think). The only thing I didn't do was get the water boiling before adding the split peas, but obviously that was a mistake because no matter how long it cooked they never got soft.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I liked this a lot. I used half flower and half gram cracker crumbs for the bottom, because I like gram cracker crust. I also added finely chopped pecans to the crust mixture. To the filling, I added nutmeg and cloves, to give it more spice flavor. I agree that refrigeration helps set it nicely.

Gluten Free Pastry

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2012
This turned out well, I have made it a few times, a little different each time. I think I like it with butter instead of shortening (unsalted for some things (apple pie), salted for others (pecan pie). I also used half rice flour and half tapioca. I triple the recipe for 2 large crusts. The first few times I made it, I had a hard time getting it to transfer to the pan. I found if you refrigerate it for 30 min, then roll it out, then put it back into the fridge for a bit, it transfers much better.

Trishie's Cedar Plank Cod

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
This was a huge hit at the potluck I bbq'd this at. I used basil and oregano instead of rosemary and parsley, just because that is what I had. I will for sure make this again.

Pudding Shots

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2013
I love these....Use whipped cream and add the milk first. I've found that if you mix the milk first, mixing until all the powder is wet and mixed in with the milk, and then add the liquor, they will set more firmly- if that is what you're after. I like mine to be just like creamy pudding that you can either spoon or lick out of a cup.
