Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
No matter what I tried to add to make this soup better it did not taste very good. No one in my family liked it. I have made soups similar to this one that we have loved.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I was skeptical to try another banana bread with whole wheat flour ince I don't usually like the flavor, this bread turned out really moist and flavourful! For more moisture, I simply added 2/3 c. oil instead of the 1/3 c., as well as 3/4 c. honey. Next time I would substitute for applesauce to make it extra healthy. My little kids loved this bread in spite of it being "healthy". I still like my traditional banana bread recipe but this one gets 5 stars for being tasteful with all the good for you ingredients!

Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
Nice quick recipe with on-hand ingredients! I whipped this one up real quick when I had sudden company coming with coffee. Next time, I would: add simple cinnamon & sugar topping, or a crumb topping for more flavor. I'd use 6 oz. of cream cheese, and a generous tablespoon of jam instead of a teaspoon. These muffins aren't overly sweet, which I like! Otherwise, excellent!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
The best beans and rice recipe I have tried yet. We joke that we are on "the Dave Ramsey beans and rice diet" to get out of debt in this economy. This recipe is a keeper, and a welcome change from boring beans and rice! Thanks, Robyn.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This recipe certainly was "easy" but not quick enough for me. I stood and stirred for 20 minutes before the sauce finally became thicker. I added 2 t. oregano, 1 t. basil and a dash of nutmeg after reading other reviewers and it tasted GREAT! Definetely a keeper!

Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: May 2, 2009
The kids loved this! We served it with bacon and eggs for breakfast. Followed the recipe to a "T". Came out a bit dry. The caramel was hard, not runny and gooey like I expected. Overall, just a good, not excellent. Will probably look for another recipe, or try to make it come out less dry next time.

Lemon Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Having grown up around some wonderful scones, these scones, as an earlier reviewer mentioned, are definetely more like biscuits. Very soft and moist on the inside, not crumbly. As other reviewers suggested, I added poppy seeds and lemon juice to sour the milk. It could still use more lemon flavor. Next time I'll just convert my other tried and true scone recipe (search Cherry Chip Scones at Taste of Home) to include lemon flavoring. A bit disappointing but GREAT if you expect more of a biscuit or muffin-like result.
