Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
This bread is seriously incredible! I only made half of the recipe (one loaf) the first time, and I am going to make the full recipe tonight. The first time I made it, I used whole wheat pastry flour (my favorite!) instead of the all-purpose, and coconut oil instead of the vegetable oil. I think I cut out a little bit of the sugar, and it was still very sweet. My favorite thing to do with this bread is to toast it with a little butter in a skillet, and top with peanut butter and bananas. I can't stop thinking about it! Tonight I'm going to use canned pumpkin instead of the oil. I am so excited to try it that way! :)

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
Oh. Emm. Gee. This is so delicious! I used fresh squeezed orange juice instead of the lemon (I've been on an orange kick recently), dijon mustard instead of spicy brown, and fresh minced garlic rather than garlic powder. I absolutely love this marinade and will be making it again and again! Can't wait for my boyfriend to try it :)

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2012
I modified this recipe A LOT, but the modified version turned out great, so I'm sure the original would, too. Here are the changes that I made: - Substituted 1C peanut butter for the butter (yummm) - Substituted 1/2C honey for the white sugar - Used 2 1/2C whole wheat pastry flour instead of the all-purpose - Subbed 1/2C dark chocolate chips for the pecans Because of all of these changes, I had to end up making a pan full of cookie bars instead of individual round cookies. I baked them for about 15 minutes in a 9x13" metal pan. They are DELICIOUS, although a tad on the crumbly side, and I suppose a tiny bit healthier than the original recipe. Definitely calorie dense! One thing that I won't do again is use both cinnamon and chocolate chips. I regretted doing so the minute I realized it. Cinnamon and chocolate are kind of icky together, so if you're going to use chocolate instead of nuts, omit the cinnamon. :)

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
YUM. This is so good! I used all whole wheat pastry flour from Whole Foods, half brown sugar, Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and I subbed chocolate chips for the walnuts. I also had three bananas so I used three instead of two :). Made them into 24 muffins, which makes them a nice little snack!

Orange Cranberry Biscotti

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
So yummy! I can't stop eating these :) I made mine with all whole wheat pastry flour from Whole Foods. Whole wheat pastry flour is my new best friend! The whole wheat made the biscotti a little crumbly, but I think it's worth it because they're much healthier. They are delicious & easy and I'll definitely make them again!!

Spiced Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This was the first applesauce that I made on my own, and it's so good. I love that it does not call for any added sugar. I used half braeburn apples and half honeycrisp. I think I might try a larger variety of apples next time, but this is seriously good and made my house smell amaaaazing!

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
First mashed potatoes I ever made - I LOVE how relatively healthy they are! Hardly any butter and fat-free milk, and they're so creamy & delicious. Thanks for the recipe, I followed it exactly :)

Smokey Chipotle Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Yummmmm! This meatloaf is awesome. The only changes I made were adding 1/2C skim milk and 1/2C sharp cheddar cheese to the oatmeal, as suggested in another review. I also didn't have celery salt, so I omitted that, and I added one chopped chipotle to the BBQ sauce for the topping. This sauce was only enough for half of the loaf, so I had to double it. Also: I learned to NOT put a cookie sheet under my loaf pan, in case the meatloaf bubbled over. I did so, and I had a nice bright red meatloaf after one hour of cooking. This was completely my fault, but if anyone is considering doing this, DON'T do it! I had to cook for another hour without the sheet there, anyway :/

Striker's Potatoes O'Brien

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Yum! Thanks for the recipe :) I ended up using red, orange, yellow, and green peppers, and sauteeing these in olive oil, separately from the potatoes. I used redskin potatoes (a whole bag of them) and sauteed those in leftover bacon grease. Maybe not the healthiest way to make this, but definitely delicious!

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
Delicious! I made these with half whole wheat flour, and they were still light and fluffy and tasty! I also added about 2T chopped sage and increased the cayenne to 1/2 t. I served these with the "All-Natural Chicken Pot Pie" from this site (I made the biscuits instead of making a crust for the pie), and they went together perfectly!

All-Natural Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
This was SO good, I love that the recipe is made with all natural ingredients :). I did make some changes as follows: 1. I did not use a crust (so it was more like a casserole). Instead, I made the Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits from this site and served them on top of the pot pie. I also added some sage to the biscuits. 2. I used a whole pound of carrots, left out the celery (because I forgot to buy it), and used redskin potatoes (a whole bag) with their skins on. 3. I added a few dashes of cayenne pepper with the rest of the seasoning, to match the cayenne pepper in the biscuits. 4. I added 1/2C plain, nonfat Greek yogurt to the sauce, making it a little thicker and more creamy :) I ended up filling a 9x13" glass dish to the very top, covering it with foil, and baking for 40 minutes. The only reason I didn't give this recipe 5 stars is because the prep took me almost an hour. Maybe I'm just slow at prepping, but precooking the chicken and vegetables took at least half an hour, not to mention dicing and slicing everything. Otherwise awesome. I will definitely make this again!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
These are fantastic! I did make some changes based on what I had on hand (grocery day is tomorrow :/). Here's what I used: - a chopped green pepper and shallot instead of the onion - dried dill (1/2 t) instead of the parsley - whole wheat panko for the breadcrumbs - I baked the falafels at 350 for 15 minutes instead of frying. When I took them off of the baking sheet, some of them fell apart, so they probably could have benefited from more breadcrumbs (I used the cup that is called for). I also didn't have the ingredients to make the cucumber sauce, but the falafels are great on their own! I'll definitely make these again & actually follow the recipe ;).

Grilled Chipotle Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
This recipe is SO good - I actually used it as a marinade for my first try at beef jerky and the jerky is amazing!! I would seriously use this on anything, although I did make two changes. 1. I forgot to put the garlic in (sad, because I love garlic), and 2. I only used about half a cup of worcestershire. I marinated about 1 3/4 pounds of beef (after I cut it into skinny strips) for two days in the fridge and then cooked it on wire racks for 4 hours at 170 degrees. DELICIOUS!! ;D

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Yum! What a perfect weekday lunch item :) I added chopped scallions and red pepper, and made this into a flatbread melt with some cheese on top. Next time, I'll probably add a little more mayo (my salad came out a little bit dry). Otherwise awesome and a great alternative to chicken or tuna salad!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Yummers! These were the best PB cookies I've ever had, and perfect for my roommate who can't have gluten! I took the advice of other reviewers and substituted 1/4C white sugar plus 1/3C brown sugar for the 1C white sugar, and added 1T vanilla. It worked perfectly! I also doubled the recipe because I wanted to give half to my boyfriend - I'm glad I did because the recipe, as it says, only makes about a dozen cookies. I also threw a couple handfuls of semisweet chocolate chips into half of the batch - amazing! Next time, I'll probably do them all this way. My boyfriend, roommate, and I all loved the cookies - I made them three days ago and they are almost gone. Time for another batch :)

Brownie cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Hmm...I know I did everything right when I made these cookies but they are totally flat and look nothing like the beautiful pictures! My "dough" was extremely sticky and definitely didn't make little balls - it just stuck to itself and everything else. The cookies spread out a lot when baking so make sure your dough balls are small. I also don't know how I feel about the taste...I'll eat just about anything so I know I will eat them up but I wanted to make them for my boyfriend and I'm not sure if he'll like them! Boo :(

Creamy Carrot With Curry Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Mmmmm! The best soup I have ever had was a chunky Carrot Cashew Curry soup, and I wanted to recreate it. I have to say that with this recipe, I got pretty close. What I changed is: - Added two handfuls of roasted cashews with the curry powder - Substituted 1 1/4 C orange juice for one of the cups of broth (suggested by someone else) I ended up having to add a LOT of salt and pepper at the end - the soup is very sweet, but turned out awesome with the additions. Be careful to not over-puree the soup so that it doesn't turn into baby food! I like mine chunky :)

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Amazing guac! Super easy to make and oh so yummy! I made the amount in the recipe for a party and it was gobbled up so fast. The guac was a little salty - it may not have needed the teaspoon of added salt - but I love salty so it wasn't a big problem for me!

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Wow - so yummy and easy! I followed a suggestion that I read in which the author included red, yellow, and orange peppers with the rest of the soup, and my friends and I loved it! I did not include the pasta - my roommate can't have gluten - and it was just fine. Delish with crackers and some parmesan cheese on top :)

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
Awesome chili - it's the first chili I've ever made and it turned out excellently!! I subbed two jalapenos for the chili peppers and couldn't find beans in spicy sauce so I just used another can of regular beans...otherwise I think I did everything else just as the recipe calls! I did make cornbread muffins to crush up in my chili as I eat it...really yummy with some Greek yogurt and avocado on top. I can't stop eating it!
