Lemon-Studded Artichokes

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Who knew microwaved would be ok??? I ran out of time and made this as a last resort. It came out great! I will not be making it on a regular basis (I prefer roasted) but when I have to watch my time, this was great. Taste was good and the heart was done enough to eat and enjoy. (I had worried about microwaving) I had a hard time cutting out choke before cooking.

Chocolate Gravy II

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
My 16 yo sister made this and it came out great! She has no cooking ability so that's saying something. This is THE recipe to use for Father's Day! LOL Oh she added 1 t. vanilla. Apparently someone else here suggested it. thanks for the tip, it DID help thicken it according to her.

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
I made these as regular sized muffins, doubled recipe. They were great! I changed the baking soda to 1 t. soda + 2t. baking powder and boy did they rise nicely!!! I also cut the sugar back perhaps a bit too much, I would go with 1 cup. Also I suggest putting on a middle to hi rack, the bottoms browned (NOT burnt) but became tougher than the rest of the muffins... I had it on a med-low rack so I think just too close to heat source. Very moist, and being as I originally cut sugar back to 1/2 c (oops!) we will be eating with honey butter! YUMMY!

Seasoned Orzo and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Oh my goodness this was good!! I made this for lunch being a crunch with the kids whining at me and I was out of everything I could think of off the top of my head... I was really surprised by the mild good flavor and the way the veggies complimented so well. The beans added a very nice gentle salt flavor, I'm glad I didn't add any extra dsalt like I was considering- and i DID rinse my beans. I can see trying this with all sorts of different veggie mixes and bean mixes... Go crazy with it! Tyu topping it with just a tad of fresh grated parmesean or asiago. Yummy! P.S. I made this with one box of orzo and it made a whole pot of stuff. We will have a lot of leftovers- this could have easily fed a larger family of 8 or more. We had six people eating and I have enough that we could all eat again...

Whole Wheat and Quinoa Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
These came out ok, I used cornmeal and baking soda for powder. The result was a very crunchy puffy pancake. I think it was a good recipe and will make it again but I think with all things quinoa/cornmeal it's best if you let it sit for a while before you cook with it. Next time I will have this maybe prepared the night before so it has a chance to really soak up some of the liquids and pick up the flavor.

I was in a hurry.. Lol there you have there are good ideas here but I didn't follow at all. oh well

Cornmeal Mush

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I double this usually. My kids love it served with honey and milk. It's a nice break from our usual oatmeal. Made it today as I've made the last couple of years and there wasn't enough to go around! LoL I think now I need to start tripling it... :P

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Did this with 4 large granny smith and 4 large Fuji apples and cut back a little on the brown sugar (NO WHITE!) for a more natural flavor. LOVE IT WILL MAKE IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!!

Sour Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
These were ok... I used homemade applesauce (the slow cooked one from this site) and frozen blueberries. Did everything as directed but kinda ended up with a mess- they fall apart in the middle and are stuck to the paper! I might try these again with some changes but as is this recipe wasn't spectacular, just ok.

Slow Cooker Western Omelet

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
Am trying this next week. So I will update this. I just wanted to add a note that for our hash browns, we don't use the frozen. We put the real potatoes quartered with the bell peppers that are asked for in a blender, fill with water run blender a few times until you have a choppy consistency you like then pour through a colinder. The water keeps the starch from looking burnt and it makes a very colorful presentation. Also the uniformity in pieces size helps it cook better. I will update after we cook this and tell how it went! ;)

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
OH MY GOSH DOES THIS SMELL GOOD TO COME HOME TO!!!! I could smell it outside my house. This is an awesome recipe because you play with it in so many ways. If you like this with homemade noodles or rice go for it. I used an onion soup packet instead of the dressing mix. You can add any veggies you would find ina pot pie like carrots, potatoes, etc than use krusteaz for a crust or pillsbury biscuits on top for chicken and dumplings... the list goes on and on. the idea of cooking the chicken alone for a roasted flavor is incredible and I will be doing this a LOT. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!!!

One Pot Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Ok so I had made a pumpkin soup a few days ago that had lots of leftovers. So I used that as a base for this. I poured in probably 1-2c pumpkin puree and 7 c water with only 2 packets of condensed chicken broth. Kept adding water as needed. Came out EXCELLENT! Also carmelized the onions and garlic before adding to the pot. My kids can't stand to know they're eating them so this helps them blend in. Very good and very healthy. I intend on playing with this one a LOT!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
These seemedjust a little dry. I only put in 1/2 c brown sugar instead of the 1 c. white sugar. Came out really great! Everybody loved them. Also to make them a little bit healthier try using a different oil. I made these with grapeseed oil but next time I may try coconut oil. YUM!

Baked Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Kids had so much fun with this one! I think the flavor was much better than a traditional boiled recipe. The flavor was intense! I would cut back on the sugar, it definently didn't need as much. We cut our apples in rings using a corer + knife. Will be making this again and again! Try using it as a desert filling or in pie or as we did with a crumb topping, vanilla ice cream, and caramel sauce!
