Mouth-Watering Strawberry and Chocolate Chip Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
I ended up using fresh strawberries that had gotten frozen in my fridge when the temperature was too high. I also left out the chocolate chips because I am not a fan of crunchy things in my brownies, I never put walnuts in them either. Also as it wasn't passover I put 1 cup regular flour. They made the house smell really nice and tasted really good. I did make a double recipe and cooked it in one large pan and they came out all right but needed to cook for an hour instead of 45 minutes

Upside Down

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
I did this with brown rice and frozen cauliflower and it came out really nice. With the brown rice you need a bit more water and the cook time is longer.

Tina's Halloween Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
I made these last night to use up left over mashed sweet potatoes and they were so good. Even my husband who isn't a bean person liked them. I used regular tortillas as it was what I had on hand and instead of salsa I served them with sour cream

Jan's Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
This came out absolutely great! I put in half whole wheat and half white flour and it came out quite nice. I also don't have a bread machine so I kneaded by hand and left it to rise for an hour.

Amaretti

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
I baked these for passover when baking with flour is not really an option and they went before the day was out. I used ground almonds as I had those in the house and needed 2 and 1/4 cups of almonds to create a dough like consistency

Orange Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2012
I think these were excellent. They were soft almost cakey. My husband took to calling them muffin tops because they were a little crunchy on the outside but like cake inside. I made a few changes to this recipe: 1. I used canola oil instead of butter because I never bake with butter for health reasons 2. I put raisins instead of nuts 3. I left out the orange zest because I didn't have an orange at hand only orange juice. Next time I would make it with the zest.

Turkish Red Lentil Soup with Mint

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
I loved this recipe, I had a cold and the cayenne pepper really cleared me up. I didn't have any tomato paste so i used some of the juice from the canned tomatoes and I used brown rice because I don't eat white rice. If you do use brown rice I would recommend using a bit more so it still resembles soup at the end of cooking. I have found that I need to add water to every reheat to give it a soup consistency again.

Moist Holiday Honeycake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
This cake was perfect! I am not usually a fan of honey cakes because I find them dry and rather flavorless but this cake was so moist but still light and tasted incredible. I had my guests fighting over the last piece.

Gramma Momo's WW Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
This was a great recipe. My dough ended up being a little thick so i had to add 1/4 cup more milk after which it was pourable. The pancakes themselves were pretty filling, we ate them for dinner and I could only have two pancakes using a 1/4 cup measuring scoop to pour and my husband had 5. I took Sarah Jo's suggestion of adding more baking powder, I added an additional 1/2 tsp of both baking powder and baking soda and they were super thick and fluffy. If you don't like thick I would advise against increasing the raising agents that much. It was a bit on the sweet side and I would probably reduce the sugar to 1/3 or 1/4 cup next time. I put in strawberries but it was too sweet with all the sugar to put in the chocolate chips I normally throw into pancakes or even to serve with syrup.

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
I actually really loved this recipe. I made a few changes based on the suggestions of others as well as a few of my own. First instead of buying an unbaked pie shell I bought frozen pastry dough that was slightly sweet and then cut the sugar down to 1 1/8 cups of which I did 5/8 brown sugar and a half cup of white. I also baked it in a tart pan so it was thin rather than the thick pecan pie you get with an unbaked pie shell and it was delicious. As it was thinner I only baked it for 40 minutes. Like others suggested I mixed the cold and cornstarch before I added it. I also left half of the pecans whole and I chopped half. I think next time I will sprinkle some cinnamon sugar over the top before I bake it. I think it could be interesting.

Lemon Chewy Crisps

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
These came out really great. My husband is a huge lemon fan and he gave rave reviews. All I did differently was substitute the butter for canola oil as I don't like to bake with butter.

Strawberry Bread II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
They came out very good with a few adjustments to the recipe. First I used fresh strawberries that had frozen because my fridge was too cold. To create strawberry juice I added a tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 cup of hot water to the strawberries and mixed it up a bit and poured that into the mixture. I also used rum extract instead of almond because that is what I had in the house. In the end I found the strawberry mixture to be to dry so I added 1/4 cup orange juice. They ended up coming out super moist and delicious. I made them in cupcake tins and found they only needed about 20 minutes but every oven is different.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
These were a big hit at my dinner the other night. The only word of advice I will give is really make sure the potatoes are in one layer or you will have very crispy unflavored potatoes a the top and very flavorful ones at the bottom. I mixed them up and reheated them and the flavor got more equally distributed the second time.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2014
I made the mistake of using natural peanut butter so it was a bit bland, as I also cut back the soy sauce as some people suggested. I added a bit of teriyaki sauce which brought it some more sweetness and saltiness which improved the tasted greatly. I liked it much better cold than hot. I threw some broccoli and mushrooms into the mix to make it feel more like a meal and it worked very well.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
This has become a regular staple at my dinner table when I have company. Its very easy and a crowd pleaser every time. Sometimes I leave out the butter and just toast the almonds in a frying pan and its still very nice.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly but in the end i had a dry cookie inside a decent tasting cupcake. Its entirely possible that I did something wrong but I wouldn't make them again.

German Potato Pancakes

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
I really liked these. I think that the frosting is a must here! I am allergic to dairy so I used butter flavored margarine and under cooked them slightly to give them a more fudgey consistency. I made the frosting over a low flame with 2/3 cup of powdered sugar and 3 heaping TBSP of cocoa powder and it wasn't too sweet. I poured it over the warm brownies and it set pretty solid though still a bit soft. Having a dairy allergy its hard to get good chocolate but I would totally make these again.
