Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
My husband liked this but kids and I just thought it was ok. Sure was easy though.

Cranberry Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
These were good - only had homemade sweetened applesauce so cut sugar to 1/4 c. and had to use dried cranberries but they turned out fine.

Spice Cookies with Crystallized Ginger

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Kids really like these! Not too sweet and not really too spicy. I only had uncrystallized candied ginger (Trader Joes - much cheaper) and rolled in turbinado sugar. Perfect "tea cookies".

Beef Tips

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Husband loves Worcestershire but he thought this was far too strong. May try halving it next time. Increasing the gravy mix and adding sour cream helped cut it a little.

Quinoa Veggie Salad with Zesty Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
Loved this - easy to tweek the dressing if you like to adjust for personal taste, but was a big hit at the BBQ.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Quite good - I always tweek a little according to what's on hand - used only whole wheat four, 1 heaping cup pumpkin, 1 T. pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 t. cinnamon as spices and omitted water because I added 2 mashed bananas that needed to be used. VERY moist and dense and both kids and husband love them. Thanks!

Garlic Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Finally... brussels that I liked. Made them as written. Even my husband, the purist, enjoyed them this way. Cuts out the sharp cabbagy bite.

Lemon Green Beans with Walnuts

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
Tried these for Thanksgiving. Favorable reviews all around except use caution with the lemon. I only used 1/2 the lemon and zest for a pound of beans and it was more than enough. Also subbed pecans since that's what we used in the stuffing.

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Very good, very easy. My kids' favorite and I can have cookies in their hands in 20 min. Sometimes I'll do 1 c. white sugar and 1/2 c. brown b/c I like them a little less sweet.

Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
The kids LOVED this - except they wouldn't let me put raisins or nuts in it. Demolished the loaf for breakfast. Have also made with Pear Butter instead of applesauce because I have LOTS from our pear trees and the kids loved that too.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Very good muffins - batter was thick which suspended our big, fresh berries. Omitted topping for calorie/fat reduction and sprinkled with a little turbinado sugar just before baking. Tops rounded nicely and they were definitely bakery quality.

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
These were a hit with the kids and husband. Have used both apple or orange juice and both work well.

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Good - not "the perfect lemon bar" in my opinion, but a hit with those I served it to. Crust is a little thick and they were tough to get out of the pan so parchment would have been a good idea. Darned easy to make however with the melted butter instead of "creaming". That was a huge plus.

Blackberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
These were ok - made exactly as written and they were ok - actually a little drier than I expected. May use oil instead of butter next time.

Cream Cheese Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Pretty good for a "quick" pie. Good for a summer night. Nobody "raved", but nobody complained either and there was none left.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Family and guests really liked this one - used chocolate glaze over top and it was a hit - not a single guest guessed it had zucchini.

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
good - added 1 teas. baking powder to batter right before pouring over hot crust to see if I could get a little more fluff to the "pie" part - worked well. These were a hit at the BBQ
