Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
This was really yummy! I love that the apples have the syrup in them. The only changes I made were to add the vanilla to the syrup mixture AFER it had thickened before pouring it on the fruit. Then I doubled the whole recipe to fill the 9x13" pan since others had said it was too thin for that big a pan. I wouldn't change a thing...sooooo good. We can't wait to eat it for breakfast! Made this again for the folks at work-added a few handfuls of frozen blueberries to the top of the fruit before topping with oatmeal mixture. Went over huge-not one bit left by lunchtime. Really the best apple crisp recipe I've ever had!

Corn Fritters Canadian Style

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
Can't say as though I'm thrilled with this recipe--I even added 2 tbs sugar to the batter. Gotta agree with fellow reviewers when I say they were rather tasteless-even with maple syrup. Maybe they'll be better after sitting in the fridge overnight. Maybe with some chopped chilies added or some extra spices they'd be a little more exciting. But the kids loved them, if that means anything!!

Fragrant Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
This is a phenomenal recipe! I didn't have cloves, and instead of using the rotisserie chicken meat I followed the recipe exactly up until adding the chicken. I let chunks of raw chicken thighs simmer in the sauce until they were done. I also only had regular coconut milk (which I saw was quite fattening!) I found the sauce to be a little soupy for my taste, so I drained it into a saucepan and let it reduce for a while before adding the chicken and onions back in. Served it over Jasmine rice with green beans on the side. Hubby called from work just to say the curry was "bad a**"!

Wendy's Quick Pasta and Lentils

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
This is really yummy! Low fat, high fiber, great taste...hits all the important points! I only had Ronzoni ziti pasta, but the family loved it!

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2008
This is a really EASY basic cornstarch pudding (let alone yummy!). I never make stovetop because, frankly, I hate to stand and stir something over the stove. My 6-year-old though it was fun to make, and the family ate it all before it even got a chance to cool!

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I don't know how anyone could say this cake was flavorless or had a banana bread consistancy. It was the MOISTEST, softest, yummiest banana cake I've honestly ever had. I, too, had to cook it for an additional 10 min. as it was still jiggly in the middle. I only had canned milk, but will make the effort to get the buttermilk next time as I think it would be better. I also did not have the lemon juice and just added the bananas to the sugar/butter/egg mixture since they were the almost black bananas and were really soft. Regardless, this cake will be on my list to make often. It was a hit! Thanks for the great recipe!

Deluxe Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
These are a very yummy waffle! True to the description, they are very eggy. I used whole white flour and canned milk to make them a higher protein, high fiber breakfast. I also also added a cup of petite blueberries and a teaspoon of real vanilla. My son asks for "my" waffles every morning!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
So once again, another yummy muffin recipe from the AllRecipes bank! These muffins were so flavorful! I used whole white flour, used 1/2 c ground oats as I didn't have oat flour, and 1/4 c ground flax seed for the wheat germ. Omitted the walnuts, and didn't have a banana so I used a single-serving cup of vanilla yogurt. I also used canned skim milk for the buttermilk. I think the yogurt added some extra moisture, so they took an additional 10 minutes to cook. But they are the best! Can't wait to see what my kids think of them in the morning for breakfast!

Pumpkin-Apple Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
Yah, these were GREAT! The whole house smelled all warm and spicy like Thanksgiving!! I shredded the apple and used whole white flour-other than that, no changes or subs. Soooo flavorful and yummy! Were a hit with my husband who "hates" pumpkin.

Oatmeal Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
Definately have the oven at 350, not 450! These are yummy muffins! I didn't have half/half (nor did I want the calories) so I used fat-free evaporated milk. I omitted the cranberries and nuts since the family doesn't care for them. Didn't have quick oats, so I ground 1 cup of regular oats in the blender to make a flour. I also made one recipe with Splenda and one with sugar. My husband did not care for the aftertaste of the Splenda muffins, and with only a 1/3 cup of sugar, this doesn't add much sugar per muffin. I will stick to this next time. I shredded the apple, as well. Very moist, yummy and good-as well as healthy!

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
Yah, so this recipe is pretty much awesome! I did sub Splenda for the sugar, and instead of nuts I used Craisins. I also subbed half of the flour with whole wheat. I just threw 2 small sweet potatoes into the microwave, peeled and mashed them-super easy! I made them in muffin tins and the kids gobbled them up! Great taste, tender and moist! Definately will make again! Thanks for the recipe!

Mom's Best Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
I don't know what happened with these waffles but they turned out horrible. They cooked, seriously, for about 10 minutes in the waffle maker and were still raw around the edges and moist in the middle-even tried turning up the temp. GREAT taste-added some vanilla and about 1/2 cup blueberries. But had to throw the batter out-very disappointing because they tasted so good. I've made lots of other waffle recipes and never had this kind of trouble.

Ground Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
I don't know how such a simple recipe can be soooo delicious, but it is!! I used Italian-seasoned ground turkey, used chicken broth, and added some garlic granules. I also cut the water back to 6 cups to keep it thicker. I don't know if there's a difference between pearl barley and regular barley-but having used the regular before, I knew 1 cup was way too much-so I added only 1/4 of a cup. Perfect flavor-even without onion or celery which I feel has to be the base for any soup/stew. Very thick and yummy!

Surprise Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
These were super yummy! Of course I can't leave any recipe alone, so I made a few changes. I had no wheat germ, so I used a package of instant plain oatmeal and a few tablespoons of ground flax seed instead. I also used Smart Balance spread instead of butter to cut back on the cholesterol and fat. I only had soymilk. And I added the zest of 2 lemons and about a 1/4 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut to the batter. I used raspberry jam and had no trouble with the jam bubbling to the surface. When they were done, I drizzled them with a glaze of lemon juice and confectioners sugar. My kids went NUTS! Very good!

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
I honestly can't think of an easier stroganoff recipe! This was delicious! My mistake was that I didn't trust the recipe and added more water. I put it on before going to bed and thought it would cook down too much by morning. It had more than enough sauce and I will follow the proportions to a tee next time! I also did as one other person suggested and added some McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak seasoning. Very good!!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
This recipe is very yummy! The brownies are very chewy, very sweet! Though the frosting is pretty thick. I had to break it up and wait for it to warm on top of the hot brownies before it would spread. They were also very thin. But because they were so sweet, it worked well because you wouldn't want a big piece anyway! Nice recipe.

Sweet Potato Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This was phenomenal--really yummy! I was trying to see how I could make potato salad a little more "healthy", and this did it! My husband despises sweet potato, and so I didn't tell him what was in it before he took a bite. He even ate it after I told him what was in it. I also added a small bag of Hormel bacon bits to the salad. To keep it even healthier, I used red potatoes and kept the skins on. VERY GOOD! I will definately make this again! Thanks for the great idea!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I made this for Easter dinner. Not my favorite recipe, but not bad! Nice mild flavor-it cooked up nice and creamy and due to there being no milk there was no separation, which was nice. It tasted better a few days later after being doc'd up with some add'l seasoning. I think I prefer the traditional recipe (one's w/o soup).

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
This was an ok recipe. My husband said it was a little dry, and it did seem to dry up quickly by the next day even after being tightly covered. It had a good flavor, though. I think I just like more cake-like cornbread.

Fruit-Topped Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
These were very yummy pancakes! I didn't have any raspberries so I used blueberries instead. I wasn't too crazy about the sauce. It tasted good, but almost too bananaey (is that a word?). It also came out kind of foamy-maybe I mixed it too long. The only other change that I did was to sub 1/4 of a cup of vanilla coffee creamer as I didn't have enough milk. These will definately made again, but will probably use a different fruit syrup or regular maple. Awesome pancakes, though!
