Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2012
Based on other reviewers and my own baking experience, I cut the sugar back to 2 cups and used 2/3 c apple-banana applesauce & 1/3 c oil instead of a full c of oil. I didn't feel like digging in my spice box for cinnamon so I used pumpkin pie spice. Very, very delicious. I think I might try using half whole wheat flour in the future and maybe cutting back on sugar by using brown sugar instead. With some tweaking, this will be my go-to zucchini bread recipe!

Pumpkin Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2011
I followed the reviewers advice and added curry & ginger. Delicious! I didn't have tomato sauce on hand so I used a can of diced tomatoes and a shot of tomato paste. Fantastic way to use up leftover ingredients from Thanksgiving!

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I've made this pie for Thanksgiving and Christmas for three years now. It's a favorite in our family. I've used both bourbon and whiskey. I often mix dark and milk chocolate chips. The recipe is great as written - the only variation depends on the type of alcohol. Strong whiskeys and bourbons (like Jack Daniels) need to be cut back to 3 tbls. Smoother, lighter alcohol (like Gentleman Jack) as written.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I was out of bulgar wheat and was glad to find a good grain substitute. I normally don't add carrot to my tabbouleh. I actually finely decided my carrot, and it provided some sweetness and a nice crunch. Good recipe. I can see myself making it again.

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
I was looking for a great way to use the veggies in my garden & CSA box so I omitted the green beans & asparagus and doubled the other veggies. I also added extra garlic, onions, salt, & balsamic because we love those flavors. Fantastic recipe! Will make again.

Crookneck Squash and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2010
We have an overabundance of squash & tomatoes thanks to my CSA & home garden. This is a FANTASTIC way to get us out of our squash rut. Unbelievably easy and uber tasty! I used diced yellow onions instead of green, and it was awesome.

Caramelized Turnips

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
I give this recipe 5 stars because it provided me a way to eat some of the turnips in my garden without gagging! Very good. Very easy.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I wish I could do 4 1/2 stars because that's more fitting! I found that I only needed 3 cups of sugar. I also used a bit of Wilton's butter flavoring and gel food coloring. Fantastic!

Apple and Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
Awesome? No. But still a pretty good way to satisfy your sweet tooth while being healthy and using up that leftover pumpkin from the holidays. I'll probably make it again and might add a tsp of brown sugar.

Lavender Tea Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I'm giving this 4 stars because the batter is fantastic, but I think I prefer it without the lavender. I guess I'm just not a lavender person. I used 1 tbsp of dry, which I think is just a tad too much. It gets a bit of perfume taste to it. I should have added just a tad more flour because it was a bit crumbly.

Venison-Bacon White Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
I used the spices in this recipe as a guideline for my own venison chili. I didn't follow the ingredient list, but I felt I needed to comment anyway because it was fantastic. I cut the cinnamon and nutmeg in half but followed the remaining spices exactly. I'm definitely going to keep this recipe!

The Best Doggy Biscuits!

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This is an incredibly easy and inexpensive way to make dog treats. My pup, Lucy, has IBS so we have to be very careful about the ingredients we feed her. As you can imagine, it makes buying treats challenging. This is a great substitute for the organic pricey treats. Like others, I substituted low sodium chicken broth for the water, and I skipped the salt since the broth still had plenty of it.

Cinnamon Pancakes in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I made these as gifts and never tried them myself so I can't attest for their flavor. The mix smelled delicious. I ended up mixing all the ingredients together. If you layer them, your recipient is forced to mix it all together themselves and refill the jar or make the entire batch at once. (Otherwise all the cinnamon will be on top.) I bought cinnamon maple syrup and apple cinnamon tea to compliment it in a gift basket.

Steakhouse Black Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
These are interesting rolls. I gave it 4 stars because I think it tastes like it suppose to (like black bread). I'm just not sure it's something that I'm fond of. My husband liked it quite a bit. I think my strong Southern coffee might have been a tad too strong because the flavor was a bit too distinguishable.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I made two version of this for Christmas. One with butterscotch on homemade cinnamon swirl bread, one with chocolate chips on Swedish chocolate bread w/ black walnuts. I followed reviewers suggestions and decreased the amount of milk, but I wish I hadn't. It wasn't quite gooey enough, even with reducing baking time by 10 minutes. The butterscotch combination was awesome. The chocolate was a bit too sweet. I would suggest using less brown sugar when making the chocolate version or when using a sweeter bread. Next time I think I'll make a bourbon or rum glaze topping and some fresh whipped cream.

Christmas Morning Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Very good and very easy. I used turkey sausage instead of pork. I think this may become a Christmas tradition.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
Oh wow. These are great. I made them into smaller rolls (about 24/batch). This recipe is a keeper!

Lentil Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
Disappointing but salvageable. I used the entire 8 oz can of tomato sauce and increased the Italian seasoning significantly. I also added a couple cloves of garlic, ground chicken, and a couple pinches of red pepper flake. I used my immersion blender to blend about half of the mixture, which thickened it nicely. It turned out pretty good, but it still seemed liked it was missing something. I love lentils, but I don't think this is the lentil soup recipe for me.

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I've never made rolls using my bread machine before, and I'm wondering what took me so long. These were great! I subbed 1 cup of wheat bread because I just can't make white bread... I baked them for 20 min in 250 F b/c I'm freezing them. However, I finished one in the oven (a few min at 425) to test them. Since I was baking only one, I skipped the egg wash. They are a bit sweet but very good! Yum!

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This is a good recipe, but it definitely needs tweaking with personal preferences. My husband and I LOVE hot food; however, I think a tablespoon of chile paste is a bit too much. I would suggest starting with a tsp and going up from there. For us, I think 2 tsp should do it. It's also a bit confusing to say 2 chicken breast halves since those vary in sizes. I used a pound of chicken breast. I also added diced carrot, baby bella mushrooms, and baby corn. It was delicious served over brown rice. I'll definitely make this again.
