Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
I just made this, and it tastes amazing. Tomorrow it will taste even more flavorful. I used almonds instead of pecans, yogurt for the mayo, and about doubled the curry powder. It's sweet, tart, and a little spicy all in one fantastic dish.

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
OOey and gooey goodness. I halved the white sugar, doubled the cinnamon, and added 1 tsp nutmeg. These smell great in the kitchen while baking.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Maybe it's personal preference, but the thinner the crust, the better. The dough seems too dense and overpowers the the pizza toppings if the crust isn't thinned out. Nevertheless, the honey makes this crust really scrumptious.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Great! These cookies melt in your mouth yet still have a bit of crunch. I used white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, added 1/2 cup of crushed roasted almonds, put 2 extra egg yolks, subbed cranberry sauce with the jam, and made a quick splash of milk to get a doughy texture. This is a great way to use up the leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving dinner. My friends rave that these cookies are better than from the box. I'll take that as a compliment.

Pumpkin Wheat Honey Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Great tasty holiday treat. I went a bit crazy and made a lot of substitutions and changes. I doubled the pumpkin, added 1/4 cup oats, replaced the walnuts with almonds, and subbed the pumpkin pie spice with 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp ginger. This was a great way to use up my leftover pumpkin from Thanksgiving baking. The moistness is terrific.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Excellent and simple. I used white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. Beat the eggs and milk well before adding into the dry ingredients. Don't overmix! Mix just enough to destroy clumps or you'll get tough crepes. However, it's really hard to screw up this recipe unless you let the crepes totally burn. These crepes with berries and chocolate syrup are great to surprise someone you love in the morning.

No Sugar Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I'm giving a 5 rating with the consideration that this apple pie doesn't use refined sugars. This apple obviously doesn't have the sweetness of traditional apple pie, so don't kid yourselves. If you want that "real" apple pie taste, then you'll have to add white and brown sugar. That's just the way it is. Enjoy everything in moderation. I sound bitter, but I really do like this apple pie. It just has a different taste and texture from traditional apple pie. I added an extra 1-1/2 tbs cinnamon and 1 tsp nutmeg to add more apple pie flavorings. I'd definitely recommend trying this recipe, but remember that this isn't the same thing as an apple pie with 2 cups of sugars.

Cranberry Apple Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
This is exactly what I've been looking for, since canned cranberry sauces are too sweet. This recipe is for those who like the tartness of cranberries, but you can gradually add sugar to your liking.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Yum. They look cute and taste great. I used chocolate wafers instead of vanilla, because who doesn't love chocolate? Watch the cheesecakes carefully, so they don't overcook. Standard cheesecake rules apply for these minis. The cherry pie filling is nice time saver. Jam also works if you don't have it on hand.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Great Indian taste. I sauteed the chicken separately then added the chicken in the end, so the chicken didn't dry out. I doubled the spices including the ginger and garlic. I used milk instead of heavy cream. I found the heavy cream really unnecessary, since the korma was already rich enough. I didn't bother to crumble the bay leaves; just use whole bay leaves and remove the leaves afterward. The heat of the korma is great on a cold winter night.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
The best apple pie recipe here, hands down. The sweetness of the sugars and apples seep into the crust, which makes it awesome. I tossed the apples in half of the sugar-butter mixture and poured the rest over the top crust. I also added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg for more apple pie flavors. I recommend placing a pan under the pie just in case the filling overflows. Also, wrap the edges around the rim in foil, since the outer crust rim has tendency to overcook before the rest of pie is done. This apple pie is definitely worth the time and effort.

Moroccan Chicken and Whole Grain Couscous

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Good but not great. Add chicken broth to your desired consistency. I used a little over half the suggested 48oz. I doubled the spices too. My only real gripe is that it doesn't taste very authentic.

Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
These cookies are really melt-in-your-mouth yummy. I made a few subs to make them a bit healthier. I reduced the white and brown sugars to 2/3 cups each, cut the butter to 3/4 cups, used white whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, and used only 3/4 cup of chocolate chips. My advice is to mix the dry and wet ingredients well separately and expect lots of stickiness.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Rich and fluffy! I use white whole wheat flour for the flours. Don't overmix!. Your biscuits will turn out tough if you do. Mix just enough to get rid of clumps. These biscuits are great to make pizza sandwiches or served with a hearty soup.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
So dense and so good. I made this for a baking sale, and it sold like crazy. I added 2 tbs cocoa powder for more chocolaty madness, used plain yogurt for the sour cream, and subbed in applesauce for the oil. The richness is unbelievable.

B Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Healthy and tasty! I use milk or plain yogurt for the buttermilk, since I never have buttermilk at hand. I subbed the 1-1/2 wheat bran with 1/2 cup oat bran + 1 cup white whole wheat flour. Oatmeal works just fine if you don't have oat bran. The main difference is that oat bran has more insoluble fiber, which helps out your digestive system flush out toxic waste in your intestines. The white whole wheat flour works fluffy wonders like the all-purpose. I used a huge banana for added flavor and moistness. Don't worry if the batter goes up the rim. The muffins do not rise much. These muffins are a great healthy sweet bite.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Delicious! I sauteed the garlic in the olive oil until the garlic got slightly browned to bring out the best of the garlic aromas. Blended as directed, and it was awesome. I served the hummus with Triscuit crackers. A great easy and healthy snack food!

Di's Delicious Deluxe Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Looks elegant and tasty awesome. I added 1 tbs dijon mustard and 3/4 tsp dill to the yolk mixture to give it a something special. This a great recipe to prepare with children. Be sure to make plenty, because people gobble these up fast. My friends loved them. Deviled eggs are not hard to make at all. It just requires patience and careful handling to not break the eggs. It's totally worth the time. You won't be disappointed!

Cheese Filled Triangles

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Great elegant crowd pleaser! I always make this for parties, and they go fast. I'm too lazy to go through the trouble of the phyllo dough, so I tried puff pastry sheets. I cut them into 2 inch wide strips and folded them as directed. The results were fabulous. The last time I made these, I used crescent dough. The individual crescent triangles were perfect for folding and flaky like puff pastry sheets but much easier to manage. You'll get the hang of folding them into triangles after a few. Don't forget to strain out the juices in the cheese-spinach mixture, so the triangles aren't soggy. Try out the crescent dough. It's ridiculously easier to deal with. Good Luck!

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2008
Wonderful! I make this every time around the holiday season. It's always a big hit and gets me more praise than I deserve. I made a few tasty, easy, and healthy modifications. For the crust, I mixed in 1/4 cup oatmeal + 1/4 cup crushed almonds + splash of milk, omitted the sugar, and used chocolate graham crackers. For the filling, I doubled the spices, and used a simple whipped cream spread on top. Use the regular cream cheese, because the low fat and fat free cream cheeses make the cheesecake more likely to crack before it's done. But don't worry too much about cracks, the cream layer on top covers everything. The cheesecake tips on allrecipes are helpful if things don't turn out as expected. Happy Holidays!
