Mango-Peach Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2014
Good tropical flavor. Pretty thick so had to add more orange juice and soy milk but the kids liked it so I considered that a big win. I added wheat germ to my portion. Would definitely make again.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
These are great muffins! Easy to make, texture is not dense, beautiful color and tasty. And I like that the recipe only makes a dozen. They are easy enough to make a fresh batch when we run out which we did already after making them just yesterday. My 7 and 5 year olds loved them! They want me to make more today. This is a definite keeper!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
They would have been better if they weren't so salty! I followed as stated but they were way too salty. I'll make again but cut back on the salt next time.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
Loved the golden brown color the muffins were when taking them out of the oven after 18 minutes. Just beautiful. They had good banana flavor and were moist. I even added 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips. Kids loved them! Would make again.

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
This cake was a hit with my entire family! My husband who has gone gluten free especially liked it. He liked the brownie texture. It was difficult to get out of the pan without destroying it though. Awesome with vanilla ice cream! Will make again!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
Good peanut butter flavor but a little salty I think. With the salt in the peanut butter, the salted butter (1 stick that I used instead of margarine), and the added salt in the recipe it made them a tad too salty. Husband said they were good. I added an extra half cup of oats per review suggestions and I'm glad I did. I baked some of the cookies with semi sweet chocolate chips, a few cookies with white chocolate chips, and some of the cookies with no chocolate chips at all just to see what tasted best. They all tasted good with or without chips. I guess I would make again but I would cut back on the salt.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
Followed recipe as written except I put chocolate chips in the 2nd batch of 12 muffins. I found all the muffins rather dry with not a lot of flavor. I didn't like adding a whole cup of oil but did it anyway. I thought about not making these again but I think I will try one more time substituting apple sauce for part of the oil and heaping the amounts of the spices to get more flavor. Maybe adding choc. chips again. If after that they aren't good, then I will definitely move on.

Applesauce Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Flavor is mild. I think I will add some ground ginger next time. They were done in 20 min. using a 9 x 13 pan. Yes, they do come out thin but not a big deal. Very good and will make again. Family liked it too.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
I've never made rolled sugar cookies before. In terms of rolling and cutting I found it quite easy. After following the recipe exactly, baking, frosting and eating them I thought they were kind of bland which is shocking with SO MANY great reviews. I think I will make some changes next time with some of the other reviewers suggestions. I like a crunchier cookie too so I will probably roll thinner next time and/or bake longer.

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Nothing to write home about. I added the vanilla too and my family and I all thought the frosting didn't have much flavor.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
I made as directed but it still needed something. More flavor. So I added sweet pickle. I ate it the next day and it was quite tastey. I ate the sandwich with veggie straws on the side. I will definitely make again.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
These are very good muffins but have to only give them 4 stars because as the ingredients stand, the mocha or coffee flavor cannot be tasted. I doubled the amount of coffee and still couldn't taste it, nor could my husband. I combined suggestions from two different other reviews. This is what I did. I used 1/4 c. veg. oil and 1 c. unsweetened applesauce in place of the butter/margaine. I decreased the amount of sugar (good thing) to 1 c. but used 1/2 c. white and 1/2 c. dark brown. I used 3 med. bananas because that is what I had and put in 2 T. instant coffee in 2 T. of water. And I added 2 tsp. of flax seeds. Those are the only changes I made. The rest was the same. They are very chocolatey so I may even decrease the choc. chips to 3/4 c. But they are very moist. They do have flavor just not the mocha flavor that the title of the recipe states. I had the idea of using mocha chips next time. I think I have to order those online. I made some big muffins and some mini muffins (baked for 11 minutes) .I will make these again.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
VERY GOOD MUFFINS! Very tasty and moist. My kids liked them too. This recipe is a definite keeper! I don't like bland food so I did not level off the spices when measuring in the measuring spoons. I think that was the way to go.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I thought these pancakes were ok but I'm giving them 5 stars because my husband and kids really liked them. First pumpkin pancake recipe that my husband actually liked----and liked a lot. Will make again.

Quinoa with Veggies

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
This recipe is awesome! I am a vegetarian and added garbanzo beans to add even more protein. Edamame is also a thought. I was very skeptical over the cumin and oregano combination but went for it anyway and I am so glad that I did. My skepticism was probably due to my lack of experience with cooking but I will make this again and again.

Sunday Morning Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Light and fluffy, but not very lemony tasting. I didn't have any lemon zest so I don't know how much that mattered. And I used lemon juice out of the little plastic lemon container you get at the store. I know fresh lemons would be much better which I will try and use next time (and there will be a next time). If not, I will just put more lemon juice from the container in it. Trial and error. Worth trying though.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Very good. Will definitely make again. I used a 7.25 oz.package of freshly cooked Udon noodles. I just had to boil the noodles to get them heated through. I also added tofu and mushrooms---yum! I also used vegetable broth, not chicken and did not use chili paste. Came out great.
