Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I used all whole wheat flour and it worked quite well. I had never made my own bread or pizza crust before and this recipe was very easy to follow. I added Italian seasoning, onion powder, and garlic powder and it worked well. I also precooked at 500 degrees for 5 mins, before adding toppings, then baked the whole with at 425 for about 18 mins. I will definitely use this one again!

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
Delicious!! My husband, who is not a fan of portobellos even liked it. I made extra marinate and used it on summer zucchini and squash, and then grilled it next to the portobellos, and boy was it delicious!! I will definitely make it again!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Delicious, and simple to make! Mine turned out lop sided once it was baked and all, not sure why...but as I said on Thanksgiving, just because its ugly doesn't mean it doesn't taste great! Used the Mrs. Smith deep dish crust, per another's review and worked wonderfully.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Great recipe! I ended up finding this late in the day and wwanting it for dinner, so I made it on the stove top and simmered for about 35 mins total. The herbs were a perfect compliment to the veggies and lentils. I used an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and 16 oz chicken broth and the rest water, because I don't like too much salt. All in all it was great. Next time I will make in the crock pot.

Sweet Potato Apple Scallop

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
This was really good! I had to make some alterations d/t ingredients on hand; I used just a cinnamon/sugar shaker for the seasoning, so no brown sugar, or pumpkin pie and used toasted chopped almonds on top, and I used fresh orange juice. For the butter I just greased the pan with margarine and then when it was almost done baking I melted about 1 T and poured it over the top. I also did not peal either the apples ir sweet potatoes as this is our preference, and I sliced the potatoes before boiling which made the time decreased to about 10 mins. All in all, and very good, healthy recipe!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Delish! I made some variations, but overall used this as my guide. To prep the squash I just baked it whole, then cut it lengthwise once it was full (much easier!, just bake at 375 for one hour in shallow baking dish). To the sauce I used fire roasted tomatoes (1 can), frozen chopped spinach (~2/3c) and frozen broccoli florets (~1c); and I used dried basil and Italian seasoning. It was so good, we loved it, my husband and I ate the entire pan!!

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
This is a great recipe! I used less tahini and lemon juice (about 2 T of each) after reading the other reviews and because I wanted to really taste the roasted eggplant flavor. It came out wonderfully! This is also a perfect base recipe for other add-ins like scallions or red pepper flakes or roasted bell peppers.

Polvorones de Canele (Cinnamon Cookies)

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Good recipe, to make them sweeter I added 1/3 c white sugar and 1/3 c brown sugar. Also following the suggestions of others I decreased the sugar cinnamon mix for the rolling part and added brown and white sugar to that as well. Overall, mine turned out delish and went GREAT warmed up with vanilla ice cream!

Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Great recipe, makes way more than 8 though, unless really huge. I popped the popcorn without oil in a paper bag in the microwave while I did the marshmallow and butter on the stove- if I had popped more than a 1/2 cup popcorn I could have easily made more balls, because the marshmallow/butter mix makes a lot. I butter my ands and dormed into balls and let set in greased muffin pan, got 16+ nice size ones. Since its Halloween, we also chopped up reese pieces and formed it into some, delish! Definitely will use this again at other holidays with other candies added depending on the special day.

Mom's Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Good base recipe. I made this for my husband and me, so I decreased the amount of extra lean ground beef, and I did make the following alterations: more spices while browning beef (pepper, cayenne pepper, onion powder, garlic powder), chopped onion and minced garlic while browning. For the veggies I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies I had, used whole wheat flour, and no extra salt, and more than a dash of worcestershire sauce. For the tomato sauce I used ketchup, because I had no cans of sauce, I just added what I thought looked like enough. Lastly for the potatoes I used less, did not peel, and made my version of mashed potatoes with fat free sour cream/milk, then topped the whole thing with a little bit of extra sharp cheddar cheese --I put everything in and 8X8 pan, baked covered for 25 mins, then broiled for the last 4 and it was delicious! No leftovers tonight!

Squash Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This was a good way to use up extra squash left over from making baby food. I did make alterations however, so my review is biased. Changes: 2 cups pureed squash, 2 cups dark chocolate chips, and decreased sugars to 1/2 cups instead, and omitted ginger, allspice, raisins, and pecans, and no baking powder...so in all my cookies are probably pretty different from the original, but they turned out delish, and are very moist, chewy, and kinda cakey...

Favorite Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
These were really good. For some reason mine turned out a little more cakey than we like, perhaps because I used whole wheat flour with a little baking powder. I would definitely make these again. I also used dark chocolate chips instead of white due to personal preference. A very good cookie!

Henry and Maudie's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
We love love love this recipe! Everytime I make them I forget to add the water, but it makes no difference, and also the only thing I do different is we add about 3/4c dark chocolate chips, and I make them smaller, so that we get about 85 or so bite size cookies...5 out of 5 all the way!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
We've used this twice. The 1st time I followed it, it was excellent, the 2nd time I used no butter, dash of olive oil instead, fresh basil chopped, fresh chopped parsley, and mix of lemon & lime juice, and it was even better! 5 star all the way. Served it with wheat noodles tossed with veggies, fresh parm cheese, basil and parsley -- delicious!

Vegan Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
This is a 5 star soup all the way! I followed the recipe, but was concerned that it would be too salty so I added a cut potato to adsorb some of it, and added 2 bay leaves for a nice long, slow simmer. It was so delicious!! We will definitely be making this again through the fall and winter!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
We love this recipe, its a good place to start when learning how to make hummus, because any add-in you want can come from this as a start and it would work. I agree with others though, I do not care for the name of this recipe.
