Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I've made so many variations of this I've lost count! Instead of buttermilk I use 2 T plain yogurt mixed with milk to make the amount needed. I add 1 1/2 t vanilla extract and spices to the oatmeal - today I used 1/4 t cardamom, 1/2 t cinnamon and 1/4 t nutmeg. After it soaks about 1 hr I add the rest of my wet ingredients, INCLUDING the brown sugar and 1 T EVOO (I like Goya). I've added chocolate chips and raisins to different batches and made them plain, too. I make these as large muffins so I only get 6, which is perfect for my teenage daughter's breakfast for a week.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
First time I made this recipe for muffins I used 1/2 c. butter and 1/2 c. plain yogurt in place of the oil and 3 xl eggs, and they came out delicious if a little flat. Today I used 1/2 c. oil and 1/2 c. yogurt and only 2 jumbo eggs, and the muffins are stuck to the oiled non-stick pan, and the 8x4 loaf pan I put the other half of the batter into is a liquid mess that won't stop overflowing out a fist sized hole while the rest of the top burns. The muffins are yummy, but I've lost half my recipe and my oven is a mess!

Thumbprint Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2013
Normally I wouldn't leave a 5-star review for something I had to tweak, but this cookie is SO worth it! I got 3 bakers dozen from this recipe, measuring my dough about 2 tsp per cookie. USE BUTTER. I cannot stress this enough. This is a shortbread cookie. It is not sweet, it will not spread, it will crumble slightly if cooked properly. Also, cream vanilla into butter/sugar/yolk. Most bakers already know to mix their wet, then mix the dry in a separate bowl and add to wet, but a novice baker might not. CHILL FINISHED DOUGH before shaping into balls. ALLOW COOKIE BALLS TO WARM to room temperature before pressing your fingerprint. Cold dough will crack and make your cookie brittle. FILL BEFORE BAKING. After cooking for 5 min, my cookies had a crust that broke and left a brittle cookie with ugly bare streaks. When I pre-filled, the cookies were smoother, but had no coating because my daughter needed a nice looking batch for her bf. I will test this again with black sesame for good photo contrast and because it's yummy. :) BAKE FOR 15 MIN AT 300. I also lined my pan with ungreased foil, it makes it easier to move to cooling rack and keeps the bottom from burning. COOL THOROUGHLY BEFORE TOUCHING. The filling is HOT. YOU WILL GET BURNED. And it's just not fun to run to the sink with jam hardening onto your skin. These would be a great project for kids over 3 to help with. Just make sure they don't poke through the bottom!

Healthier Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2013
Used whole-wheat flour, 1/2 c. packed brown sugar, 1/2 c. white sugar. Instead of vanilla, substituted 1 T. matcha (green tea) powder mixed in 1 t. water and beat into egg before adding to butter mixture. Dipped tops of cookies into black sesame seeds before baking. Would add green food coloring next time because cookies were brown, but delicious!

Naan

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
My family loves this recipe! I use whole wheat for half my flour and add whey from plain yogurt rather than milk, then cook on my stove on a nonstick grill pan. There's only three of us so I under-cook most of them so they're just slightly browned, cool on a rack and freeze them in zipper bags. They reheat easily on a grill pan or lg skillet.

Honey Oatmeal Bread II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
After FIVE cups of flour I still had a sticky, unkneadable mess which finally dislocated my pinky finger. No idea what went so wrong when I followed the directions exactly up until I added more flour to get the dough to pull together.

Peruvian Chicha Morada Drink

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Too spicy and citrusy. Reduce cloves to 3 - not spoonfuls, three whole cloves. My mother-in-law doesn't use citrus in her chicha but says her mother-in-law juiced 1 lime directly into hers.

Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Made with the recipe as posted, these were flavorless. This makes a great base recipe, however. I added 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon (I prefer just a hint of cinnamon; add more for stronger flavor), replaced sugar with dark agave syrup and omitted oil because agave syrup gives enough moisture. Next time I'll replace half the milk with applesauce or overripe, mashed bananas and see how that goes.
