Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Fantastic! Really easy and really yummy. I used 1/3 c. sunflower oil instead of the melted butter and only 1/2 c. white sugar to be a little healthier. I also used 4 bananas because that's what I needed to use up and added 1 tsp vanilla extract and crushed some unsalted mixed nuts. Baked about 20min at 375ยบ. Everyone loved them. This recipe is very forgiving, which is fantastic!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Best wheat bread I've made. Nice and fluffy. I actually use sugar instead of honey and a bit more white flour than wheat. This bread comes out nice and fluffy, not hard as a brick like all my other wheat breads.

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Love this. I was looking for something to do with my beets - I love beet greens, but what to do with the beets...? I tried other recipes and they were ok but no one else ate them. So I tried this, without the meat. I cubed/chopped, rather than shredded since I'm not very good at shredding. I also used chicken stock instead of water and skipped the tomato paste, skipped the sugar, and used stewed tomatoes (2 cans). It was great and was better the next day. I really love when the potatoes fall apart. The soup has great texture. Finally, something to do with the leftovers from my beet greens :) As an aside, I took "cook beets until they lose their color" to mean when the beets color the soup, which for me was about 10 min., when they were also tender.

Homemade Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I love this vegetable soup, but I might have changed it so much it's not quite this recipe. This recipe was the inspiration: I used 2 cans of low salt, low fat chicken stock; 4 c. water; about 6 smallish carrots; 4 stalks of celery, peeled; 2 pinches of dried basil; 2 pinches of dried thyme; a few sprinkles of an onion-based salt-substitute; the liquid from a can of stewed tomatoes; 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed. Boil/simmer this for 30 min. Then added 1 head of cabbage, chopped; the stewed tomatoes; 2 roma tomatoes, quartered; bunch of green beans (1-2 cups?); bunch of crimini mushrooms (1/2 cup?); 1 cut zucchini. Cook for 30 min. more. Add kale, cook for about 10 min. Good soup, or how to get rid of all the veggies in your fridge -- in a good way :-)

Cream Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Excellent recipe. I warmed the milk then added the sugar and yeast and let that sit while I melted the butter (instead of margarine) and warmed the cream cheese and let the egg warm on the stove. Then I dumped the butter, cream cheese and egg on the yeast/milk mixture, added flour, then salt and let the bread machine work: White, 2 lbs, pounded down the bread a little after the 2nd rising. It smelled great when baking and rose very nice and fluffy. It's a cheese bread, so it's heavy but yummy. I think me and my bread machine are now best buds.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Hubby and I have been cooking whole chicken in the crock pot for a long time. We used to spice it all up, adding lots of liquid and vegetables to get a soup as well as the chicken. I love carrots. Then I started to get coughs, colds, flus, allergies, stuff that never ends, and I couldn't eat anything with any flavoring at all for awhile. So he started making this even simpler: just chicken and water. Nothing else. Cook about 6 hours and chicken is done with lots of soothing chicken soup. The chicken is very tender, but of course, my favorite part is the chicken soup to make me feel better. Hubby now makes this with frozen chicken, from freezer (just make sure there's no gizzard bag), add water, turn on, leave for next 6+ hours. If I'm feeling good, I'll add lots of sprigs of fresh rosemary or maybe some ginger and the whole house smells great and no need to think about dinner for the next few days. In other words, you can't go wrong with a whole chicken in the crock pot.

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Lovely bread, my 4th loaf EVER, and the only one that came out of my new bread machine fluffy. (Never baked any bread before the bread machine) I did as the recipe said, starting the yeast with the water and sugar 1st. I adjusted as many reviewers said, using 1.5 tsp of salt, and I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I also used 2.75 c. all-purpose flour because that's what I have. (I'll get bread flour next trip to a food retailer) and added some herbs (Italian seasoning, fresh rosemary) for a less bland loaf. Due to my previous "experiments", I was on my way to pre-activating the yeast, so this recipe fell right in with what I was thinking anyways. I will from now on ALWAYS pre-activate the yeast for yeast breads. Yay!
