Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2014
Tasted good and set up nice. Used it to decorate the "Black Magic Cake" from this site and it was perfect.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
I really enjoyed this smoothie. I did what the others suggested and placed the oatmeal in the food processor first, and pulsed until it was finely ground. I also used frozen mixed berries, regular milk, and added in a half-tablespoon of peanut butter. I didn't add sugar (I don't add sweetener to my smoothies, just a personal preference). Very creamy and filling. Will be making again.

Irish Bannock

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
I just pulled this out of the oven, and it's quite tasty. I love that the fact that it isn't overly sweet. I took the advice of the other reviewers and added in the full cup of buttermilk; but my dough wasn't sticky like other's were saying, so I went ahead and kneaded it. I used a mixture of raisins and golden raisins instead of currants, and I also added a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. I'm planning on baking another one and putting it in the freezer for later. This bread is so easy to make, and so delicious, that I plan on making it a regular thing.

Blood Orange Yogurt Olive Oil Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
This is wonderful! I guess some could say that it's more of a quick bread than an actual cake, but that doesn't change the fact that it tastes great! I did have to make a few changes (simply due to what ingredients I had on hand): I didn't have plain Greek yogurt, but vanilla flavored, so I used that mixed with a little bit of sour cream. I also didn't have agave nectar, so I used honey, and only a 1/3 of a cup of it due to the fact that the yogurt I used had added sugar in it. Other than that, I did everything as written. It's a dense, moist, tangy, and flavorful way to use up some blood oranges. The only little issue that I had is that when I added the "blood orange syrup" to the warm cake, it fell in. Not a huge deal, but it might be better to let it cool quite a bit before pouring it on.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
I have made this recipe many, many times; and it's pretty great as written. With that being said (and with how many times I've made it), I've modified it to fit my family's taste. The last batch I made, I used 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1 cup of raisins, 1/3 cup honey, 1 egg beaten, 2 tsps vanilla, and then I mashed 1 medium banana into a half-cup measure and then topped off the remaining space in the half-cup measure with vegetable oil (not an exact measurement, but it reduces the amount of fat in the recipe). I followed the same instructions, mixing the dry ingredients, and then adding in the wet ingredients. Mine usually require the full 30 minutes. I have also made it using molasses in place of the honey; have tried it with both all purpose and wheat flours; and it always turns out good..So my rating is based on the original recipe AND the fact that it so easily adapted to your tastes, dietary needs, and/or simply what ingredients you have on hand....Oh, and I almost never have wheat germ in my pantry, so I haven't made it with that, but it still turns out great.

Dominican Style Oatmeal

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
I've never really been a huge fan of oatmeal, I always thought it to taste kind of bland. Nevertheless, I decided to give this recipe a try, and I think I may become an oatmeal lover! I love the simplicity (as I pretty much always have these ingredients on hand) as well as the versatility. I made mine with a little less sugar, and sliced up a slightly ripened banana, and it was absolutely fantastic. It's quick, simple, nutritious, and tastes great. What more could you ask for?
