Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
I love these treats - and so does my dog! I have also substituted Sweet Potato and Squash puree for the pumpkin, whatever is in season and I've had excellent results. I sometimes add whole oats and/or ground flax seed for extra nutrition and I always get great results and my sweet Bella goes gaga over these; she stands guard in the kitchen when I make them, she intuitively knows I am making something for her. I only bake them until they are nice and golden brown about 30 - 40 minutes and then I shut off the oven and leave them in so they get nice and crunchy. I like that these have no milk or milk powder in them as they last much longer without molding. Also, the dough freezes beautifully (I like to split the dough in half; bake one and freeze the other half). Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe!

Pea Shoots and Chicken in Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I am one of those annoying people that rate a recipe, even though not following the recipe exactly. I always read reviews first, just to find out what others think of this recipe and I used suggestions. I doubled the amount of sesame oil, and am glad I did because it wasn't super strong and I love the flavor of sesame oil. I also added 3 cloves more garlic, another bunch of pea shoots, used homemade veggie broth in lieu of the chicken broth, half a small onion diced, some ginger, soy sauce, some sherry, and a bit of sucanet to sweeten it up (I don't use regular sugar - only Sucanet which is also knows as Rapidura). I thought this was so delicious and I wouldn't hesitate to eat this again and again! I do think that the flavor would have been lacking, but I think it has great potential to add flavors that you enjoy. I also served this up with Lundberg Wild Blend (a combination of long grain brown rice, sweet brown rice, Wehani, Black Japonica, and Wild Rice). I would have used another rice (Brown Basmati is my preferred) however the one I used needed to be used up. Really, you should try this it is FANTASTIC!

Pierogies and Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This was delicious! I used a bag of cole slaw mix and the only bacon I had was pre-cooked - which I doubled the amount of. I crisped up the bacon in a pan with about a tsp of Olive Oil, then I added all the veggies to saute. I tripled the vinegar and sugar - which I used brown sugar and loved the contrasting tastes. It elevated the Peirogies and my mother devoured it! This is going to remain in my rotation for ever - great recipe!

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
This is my first attempt at making baguettes, and I am thrilled with this recipe. I don't, however, use a bread machine nor packaged yeast. So, I adapted this recipe using my sourdough sponge instead. Because I used 1 cup of sponge, I then reduced the flour and water by 1 cup. When mixing this up, I realized it was too dry, so I dribbled water in a little at a time until the dough was the perfect consistency and I used my kitchen aide mixer to knead the dough for about 5 minutes and then I let the dough rest for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, I added the salt to the dough and kneaded for about 7 minutes, or until the dough was smooth and would stretch quite nicely before breaking off. I then proceeded to do a first rise, which was about 2 to 3x longer due to using a sponge vs purchased yeast. The second raise was a bit longer as well. I also did not put an egg wash on the loaves, but put a pan with some water in the bottom of the oven so I did get a crispy crust. I got 2 loaves from this recipe, and will use it often. This is going to save me lots of money as I was spending $2.99 a loaf at the co-op! Thanks for posting an excellent recipe!

Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
OMG, these cookies were amazing! Now, I did make a few changes - but stayed within the guidelines of this recipe. I used organic, local butter in lieu of margarine, all the other ingredients were organic as well. Although I used 1 cup of organic sugar, in place of the brown sugar I used Sucanet, and the chocolate chips I used were Sunspire Organic Grain Sweetened Dark Chocolate Chips which taste similar to semi-sweet chocolate chips, I also used all Whole Wheat Pastry Flour (no AP flour). The Sucanet created a very dark cookie - but they were so delicious! This is the first cookie I have ever made, that not only is decadently delicious, but I feel really good eating and serving. A+ recipe!

Mushroom and Potato Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This is a delicious soup! I did make some changes, only because of the past reviews and what I had on hand. I added about 2 heaping Tablespoons of garlic to the onion and sauteed them along with the celery and carrot. I added about 3 times as much flour to the roux as I wanted a thicker, chowder like consistency. I used both white button mushrooms and baby bellas and doubled the potato. In lieu of the heavy cream I used half-n-half and used veggie stock instead of the water. I brought this to work for a Soup-Off and it was a HIT! Mine was gone within minutes of arriving and the vegetarians were thrilled to have a tasty option. This was a very tasty soup, and I am going to use the base of it for a variety of creamy soups - so TASTY!

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
I really loved this roll recipe, and I have made a LOT of rolls/breads in the past! They came out super light and fluffy with an excellent flavor - not bland in any way and I used the exact ration of recipe ingredients. I did however change how I made them slightly - I heated up the milk and melted the butter and added the sugar and yeast and proofed it. I then added the eggs, and flour and mixed using a dough hook. Once incorporated, I kneaded it for just a few minutes and then covered and rested the dough for 20 minutes. I then kneaded the dough again, and added the salt, kneaded some more and then proceeded to the first rise. These were hands down the best rolls I have ever made and this will definitely be in my rotation - can't wait for Easter dinner because I am making these!! Enjoy, you won't regret it!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2011
This was the easiest and best tasting homemade chocolate cake I have ever made. I baked it in a bundt pan, and made a light chocolate drizzle. It stayed moist for days, and was a hit at my work - everyone adored it. I am never making a boxed cake mix again. I also am going to try using hot coffee in lieu of the hot water as advised by a previous reviewer - however this cake is absolutely wonderful AS IS!

Banana Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This made a wonderful moist and tasty bread. A bit crumbly when cutting, but a delicious way to use oatmeal into a staple recipe of mine. My family loved it, and I shared it with my co-workers and they loved it too. 2 thumbs up!
