Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Since I try to be a "healthier" cook, I used 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup of Splenda for the batter part. It did not look like it would blend when you added the milk as it was very lumpy, but went ahead anyway. I used FF milk and 1/2 C. whole wheat and 1/2 cup all purpose flour. They cooked perfectly in my Wilton 24 mini muffin pan in exactly 10 minutes. I rolled half of the muffins and cinn/sugar mix and the other half in powdered sugar. My kids loved both versions and they had no idea they were "Healthier".

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I have made this at least 20 times and I mix it up with whatever is on hand. I do not use salt in the beginning and I do rinse the quinoa first. It takes time for the Quinoa to cool down..about 30 min. Then I mix the olive oil with balsamic or apple cider or rice wine vinegar. I use whatever kind I have in the pantry at the time. I do not use lemon juice as I love the tang of the vinegars. I use whole grape tomatoes and chopped cucumbers with the seeds scooped out. I do not use carrots but it is a must to use fresh parsley! I add feta cheese and a few dashes of red pepper flakes and fresh ground pepper. I add sea salt to taste at the end. With the saltiness of the feta, you don't need much. I have added black and green olives (no extra salt needed). If I am out of feta, I add chopped string cheese or mozzarella. Also it is true if you serve it hours or a day later- the flavors have a chance to meld together and it tastes much better!

Buster Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I made this dessert over the weekend and I always try to lighten up the fat and calories when I can. I used 1 can fat free evaporated milk and used light frozen whipped cream. I also used 1/2 can of a 12 oz Emerald Brand Toffee Almonds crushed on half of the dessert and no spanish peanuts. I did stick with premium Vanilla Bean ice cream, 1.5 quarts. Everyone raved about it and I will definitely make it again! Thank you Rochele for sharing!

Baklava

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
I made this on Sunday. I followed other suggestions. Use toasted pecans- I crushed them in a baggie and toasted them dry in a pan for 5 minutes. I added 1/4 C. sugar with nuts and cinnamon. For sauce I used 1/2 C. water and 1 C. honey. I brought to a boil for about 8 minutes only and spooned on hot Baklava. Also, I used 1/2 C. melted butter and used a pastry brush to spread it over 4 layers of phyllo at a time. It was much less time consuming and so easy. It was gone in minutes at lunch today. Incredible!It was my first time making this!I have several requests already.

Chocolate Poke Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2004
I made this for Fathers Day and it was a hit! I substituted 5 oz milk chocolate chips melted in microwave instead of unsweetened chocolate, 3/4 C. plain nonfat yogurt and used only 1 1/4 C sugar.I also used regular ice cream caramel topping. My family loved it!!I only gave it four stars because the middle was still a little sticky and the edges were almost overdone. I didn't think it was too sweet- just right with either vanilla ice cream or milk.
