Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Healthy and nutritious! I use this plain oatmeal muffin as a good standby for breakfast whenever I run out of bread for toast. An excellent base recipe to add to. I sometimes add chocolate chips and pecans to some of the muffins (making those more tasty but less healthy).

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Followed the recipe to a T. The cookies tasted exactly as sugar cookies should! It certainly helped to chill the remaining dough as you work with a single batch of a half dozen cookies--at room temperature the dough becomes too soft.

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
These look and taste great! I've made them twice already, albeit with pancake syrup, and they were wonderful. I'll have to buy maple syrup one day to find out how much more wonderful they can be.

Sugar Cookie Slices

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I like that this recipe is egg-free. I took other reviewers' suggestions to roll the dough into balls and flatten them. This made the edges of the cookies uneven and cracked. They tasted fine but were not too pretty. I will try the slicing method next time.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I substituted the milk with water, because I didn't like the idea of keeping milk at room temperature for days. The recipe still worked great--I even used pancake syrup instead of corn syrup (because the supermarket was sold out). Just play with the amount of sugar to achieve the desired consistency.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I will make these cupcakes again and again! They turned out perfectly, even though I used skim milk and substituted the butter with margarine. I halved the recipe (changed number of servings to 8 instead of 16) and it made one dozen cupcakes--I followed other reviewers' advice and only filled the cups 1/2 full.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I didn't grill the chicken breasts, just baked them in the marinade for 50 min in a covered glass baking dish, and then I browned them for a few more minutes in a frying pan on medium heat, basting with the marinade. Delicious! I will definitely make this again, thanks!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
Testament to the versatility of this recipe - it still tasted HEAVENLY despite poor-man substitutions/eliminations. Replaced shallots, Arborio rice, wine, chives, and butter with items on hand--an onion, regular white Jasmine rice, dry vermouth, freeze-dried chives, and margarine. Eliminated mushrooms and sea salt. Minimized fats (for health reasons). Otherwise followed directions faithfully. Even with these blasphemous changes, the recipe still succeeded. That speaks volumes about this recipe. **NOTE: I have also tasted this recipe exactly as it was written--it deserves 6 stars.

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Just as Sue said, a simple, yet very tasty cake. I love it! I made it exactly as directed and it worked out beautifully. I frosted it with a chocolate frosting (a bit of margarine, vanilla extract, corn syrup, some cocoa, and added icing sugar till the right consistency). This will be my go-to recipe for a simple quick chocolate cake (and we're not vegan either)!

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
Loved it! Took other reviewers' advice: I served it with plain yogurt mixed with cilantro and lemon juice, and I added a little chopped spinach along with the cilantro--I am so glad I did. Thanks for the great recipe and reviews!

Spanish Beef and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
This was flavourful, simple, and easy! I didn't have chili powder but made my own (equal parts cayenne pepper, ground cumin, oregano, and garlic powder), and I used 2 cloves minced fresh garlic instead of the 1/2 tsp garlic powder. I also used 1 tsp of the spices in cooking the beef, and added 1/2 an orange bell pepper in addition to the green pepper. The texture was a bit mushy, but that was mostly my fault (instead of long-grain I used short-grain rice, which normally requires less liquid). Next time I will reduce the amount of broth, and I will try leaving the green pepper raw and mixing it in at the end.

Colonial Brown Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
Excellent recipe. I didn't have whole wheat flour so I substituted all all-purpose flour instead. It turned out great, even though I used 1 cup sour milk (1 tbsp vinegar in a liquid measuring cup, filled to the 1-cup line with milk) for each cup of buttermilk. I even used skim milk. For one of the loaves, I replaced 2/3 cup of flour with All-Bran cereal, and added cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg and ground ginger. It was nice, kind of like a fat-free bran muffin. Such a simple and easy recipe on which you can base all kinds of different quick breads! Best of all, it's virtually fat free and has no eggs. I made it for breakfast this morning because I ran out of store-bought bread and eggs, but I will definitely make this again.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Yum! Only changes I made were (based on some of the most popular reviews) to mix the ketchup and brown sugar and pour as a glaze on top near the end of cooking time, add a bit of Worcestershire sauce to the glaze and the meatloaf, and add about fresh minced garlic to the meat. Will definitely use this recipe again!
