Whole Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
Great recipe. I added 4 T vital wheat gluten, decreased water by 4 T and added honey in place of brown sugar. I let it rise a little extra time as I like soft fluffy bread. (The 4 T of sugar is optional in my opinion if it is going to be used exclusively for sandwhich bread.) I made 3 breads and 6 large rolls. Next time I will make one of the breads into a breakfast bread by rolling it out and spreading a brown sugar, nut, raisin, cinnamon filling inside the bread. This recipe does not disappoint!

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
I made these into muffins since they are easier to grab and go. Cooking time was about 30-35 minutes. This was the first time I substituted apple sauce for oil and I'm glad I did because you can't tell the difference except perhaps more flavor! I also added a cup of nuts instead of a half cup, substituted milk for the water, and used whole wheat pastry flour instead of whole wheat flour. I will definately make these again. Just right for our tastes.

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
I have made acorn squash like this for years however I also add some fresh grated nutmeg, cinnamon, a splash of sweet sherry ,salt and pepper and butter. I pierce the flesh with a fork to let the melted butter, sherry and other ingredients soak into the flesh. I bake the two open halves side up so the flesh browns just a tad. When it is cooked I fork mash it all together to blend the flavors. Over the top good!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
We really liked this recipe and I did followed other reviewers suggestions to dredge in flour, then fry on medium high heat instead of medium. I first simmered the sauce separately to reduce while browning the chicken. However it was a tad too spicy for us and we do like spice. I will make it again but add only 1 1/2 T of the sriracha sauce and up the honey to 3T. We like it a little sweeter. I also simmered separately, red and yellow peppers, carrots, red onions and added some pineapple chunks at the end. It's a tasty way to add any stir fry type veggies so it becomes a complete meal. We all know we should eat more veggies and even veggie haters should like them this way! I also liked that there is very little oil in this recipe so it's pretty healthy too.

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Very tasty- this is why I don't bake too often, cause these are very tempting. Husband loved them but actually liked them better before I twice baked them. He liked it more like a cookie. You might want to try keeping some of them this way to see which way your family likes them better. Mine were a little crumbly and some of them broke but those were the taste testers :) I also put some white chocolate chips on one side as soon as they came out of the oven, which melted them and then you can spread for a thin frosting.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
I just made this for the first time and for my taste, it had too much vinegar. It was good but next time I will add more olive oil, cut back on the vinegar, and add some lemon and a little sugar. Most vinaigrette type dressings are 1/3 vinegar ratio to oil, and this recipe calls for more vinegar than oil. I found it overpowering. I live near Tarpon Springs Florida which has wall to wall Greek restaurants. They use a big scoop of potato salad on top of their Greek salads and once you have it that way, you'll never want it any other way, so give it a try! I just buy the red potato salad from Publix rather than making it and that saves a lot of work. It's not the goopy stuff you usually get at stores.

Fried Matzoh

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
This sounded like an original idea for breakfast so I thought I'd give it a try. It sounded a little bland for us so I added some sauteed onion and some cheese and more salt and pepper. Even with that it was still bland. My husband felt perhaps if you put salsa on it it would be better. I tried it with some sour cream on top like you would do for a potato pancakes and that made it more interesting. I also tried a bit with a spicy sour cream jalapeno cheese dip and that seemed to do the trick. I made two of these since the recipe was for one serving but actually one was plenty for two people. I'll reheat the other one and try it with the salsa tomorrow.

Baby Zucchini Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2012
I just whipped this up because I had some baby zucchini that I was going to cook and saw this recipe. I like the raw option for veggies whenever possible. I used cilantro which was suggested in another review instead of basil and since I had a lime, I added lime zest as well. I used 3 T oil and 2T of Oliver's 25 year old barrel aged balsamic. Wow, so refreshing and the lime and cilantro knock it out of the park! I will definitely make this often. Thanks Lizabeth.

Savory Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I have made this recipe for years and it is so an easy and delicious for company. I serve it with rice so I use 2 cans of soup for extra sauce. I use chardonnay in place of milk and a box of Stove-top stuffing(dry),instead of breadcrumbs. These changes put this recipe over the top taste wise.
