Easiest Pot Roast Ever

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2003
My first time using a slow cooker and this turned out fantastic! I cooked a 2-1/2 lb roast for 5 hours on high, stirring twice to make sure the beef bouillons were mixed in evenly (I used Maggi brand). Beforehand, I made slits in the roast and put in slices of garlic, then browned the roast on all sides before putting it in the slow cooker. I also added a bay leaf, ground pepper and 2/3 cups water and wished I added more because the "juice" was so good! Perfect for soaking up with freshly baked bread!

Seven Grain Bread II

Reviewed: May 22, 2003
I used Kashi Puffed 7-grain cereal in this recipe. My bread caved in a bit at the top but I don't care about aesthetics when I'm just serving the family. I was impressed with the taste and texture. Gave this 4 stars as I still prefer Brownberry's 7-grain loaf.

Banana Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2002
I used 4 bananas for this recipe and made muffins, baking for 20-25 minutes. I added walnuts, chocolate chips and raisins separately to some of the muffins and left a few plain (I liked the ones with raisins best). I didn't have wheat germ but added some applesauce (between 1/4-1/2 cup) to help alleviate the dryness. A very tasty recipe.

Tofu Fudge Mocha Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2002
I was surprised at how good this tasted. I halved the recipe and used an 8-in square pan. The batter was spread out pretty thin, about 1/4-in and didn't look presentable, but it was really rich and delicious. I substituted light brown sugar for the turbinado sugar.

Applesauce Brownies I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2002
These are good, but lack the sinful qualities of a real brownie ;) Definitely double the amount of cocoa powder.

Japanese Shrimp Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2002
I was looking for the orange sauce served at some Japanese hibachi restaurants I've been to. This is not it. It's still quite good though. I substituted apple cider vinegar for the rice vinegar and added about 1/2 cup water to reduce the thickness of the sauce.

Agedashi-esque Tofu

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2002
This is just SO good. I cube the tofu then put them between layers of paper towels for a few minutes. This gets the excess water out so there's no splattering when the tofu hits the oil.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2002
This is really good. It has the authentic flavors of a Southeast Asian dish. I scaled this recipe down to 2 servings and used about 1/2 tsp of tamarind concentrate (purchased from ethnicgrocer.com). I omitted the radish; wasn't sure what that was. Personally, I wouldn't put 2 cups of vinegar in any dish. This is a noodle recipe, not a pickle recipe.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2002
I scaled this down to 7.5 servings and baked it in a 9x9 pan, which was more than enough for 2 people. I added about 1/2 cup thawed frozen corn. To store, I put the leftover cornbread, pan and all, in a gallon-sized ziploc bag. Stays good even after a few days! *****

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
This was unbelievably delicious with roasted garlic. To roast garlic: slice the top portion off a head of garlic and remove excess papery skin. Drizzle olive oil on top and season with salt. Wrap garlic tightly in foil and place in oven preheated at 375F for 35 minutes. I scaled this recipe down to 6 servings using a 3-pound bag of new red potatoes.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2001
My husband and I LOVE this recipe. I've frozen half the cookie dough and baked it the next day and the cookies still tasted good. I drop a teaspoonful of dough onto the baking sheet - looks much more presentable instead of a tablespoonful, I think. The cookies do get really hard and crunchy the next day. Just stick them in the microwave for 15-20 seconds and they get nice and chewy again.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2001
A strong chicken broth is needed to make this good. KAET: I've never been able to get my rice to brown and/or puff in a skillet either, so I always use my rice cooker instead. I saute the onions, minced garlic and cumin in a skillet, then throw it into the rice cooker along with the 1 c. rice, 1-1/2 c. chicken broth and all the other ingredients, omitting the garlic salt. The cooker shuts off when the rice is done. Easy and very good too.

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2001
I used margarine and thought the 1 tbsp garlic salt made it way too salty so I cut down to 1 tsp the next time. Much better. I didn't have italian seasoning so I used what I had on hand - 1/4 tsp each of dried basil, oregano and thyme, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Superb.

Applesauce Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2001
I halve the ingredients to make one 9x5 loaf. I use 1/4 c. oil and 2/3 c. sugar to reduce the fat content. Added 1 c. walnuts. I've baked this for friends and gotten rave reviews. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Linda.

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2001
Dee-lish!! I used a 9x5 loaf pan and baked for 70 mins. Also cut down the sugar to 2/3 cup and it was still sweet. Very easy to make.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2001
My modifications: used a 16oz jar of Creamy Alfredo instead of the tomato-based sauce; added a layer of sliced portabella mushrooms sauted in olive oil; used tomato-and-basil feta cheese which gave the dish some color; and used a veggie bouillon dissolved in 1-1/2 cups water for the broth. I highly recommend using marinated instead of un-marinated artichoke hearts as stated in the recipe. The results are AWESOME!! Thanks, David!
