Jellybean Bark

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
Love it! Very easy to make and fun to assemble with kids :) Used Ghiradhelli White Chocolate Bars (about 5 for smaller cookie sheet) - and chose Starbust jelly beans.

Whole Wheat Maple Quick Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
I made this bread tonight and I am kind of on the fence as to whether I would make it again. Its very plain and would be great as a breakfast bread with some natural nut butter. I used almon milk, fat free plain greek yogurt, 2 egg whites, 1/2 cup agave nectar, and I added 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract. The bread came out pretty dense and very chewy in the center. Next time I may try experimenting by using pumpkin puree or applesauce.

Great Easy Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
Although I prefer for myself making a pumpkin-wholewheat-flax waffle recipe, I know my family loves waffles made with white flour...so I decided to try this recipe out since I liked the idea of using lemon zest & vanilla. I used less lemon zest then the recipe suggested and added in a tsp of ground cinnamon. Everyone enjoyed them and next time I may even try using orange zest.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VI

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I made these twice already...The first time I followed the recipe exactly, but instead of raisins I used 1/2 cup dried blueberries and 1/2 cup of dried cherries. They ended up coming out quite good - but were not as soft/chewy as I had expected. This time I made them I chose to experiment and I used 1/2 cup extra virgin organic coconut oil and 1/2 cup organic unsweetened applesauce, dark brown sugar, 1 cup whole wheat flour and only 1/2 cup white flour...and dried cranberries (because that is all I have in the house). They came out decent - more cake like in the middle, and a little more bland - but my 5 yr old niece loved them and she hates oatmeal cookies usually.

Applesauce Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
By far one of my favorite bread recipes now! This cake came out super moist and tasty! I followed the recipe exactly but used lite sour cream. Next time I will try to make it healthy by using a mixture of whole wheat and brown rice flour, cutting down the sugar with agave nectar, using extra applesauce to reduce the oil, I never used raisins and I dont plan to next time...And using fat free plain greek yogurt...I will let you know how it comes out "healthy."

Cinnamon and Lime Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
I took many suggestions for this recipe and kept them in mind - I used sweet potatoes, thinly sliced breasts of chicken rubbed with cinnamon, chili powder, salt, and pepper - i cooked with olive oil in pan.... then sauteed red peppers, anions in pan until soft, mixed everything together in a whole wheat soft tortilla, topped with fat free plain greek yogurt - cilantro, and a squeeze of lime! Excellent

Arrabbiata Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I love spicy sauce...but I changed this recipe a lot! I used white wine instead of red b/c thats what I had open...I omitted the sugar, increased the red pepper flakes, and instead of canned tomatoes I used about 20 fresh diced plum tomatoes. The sauce came out very fresh...I tossed it with angel hair, sauteed shrimp, and shelled edamame beans...Everyone loved it!!!

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I love pumpkin, so I obviously had to try this recipe. I read all the reviews before hand and decided to take some suggestions. I used 3 cans of the diced tomatoes, 1 can of drained black beans, TB of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, cumin, & cayenne pepper. I also added 2 TB of Brown Sugar and 1/2 cup Chicken Broth so it wasn't as thick - but still had a chili like consistency. I garnished with a dollop of plain nonfat yogurt, chopped cilantro, reduced fat cheddar cheese, and served with Multi-grain Flaxseed Tortilla Chips on the side. I loved it & so did my family. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks for a great recipe!
