Bread Pudding Apple Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
Didn't use a crust. Used 3 granny smith apples and 3.5 pieces of whole wheat bread, lightly toasted. Also, added 1/8 tsp allspice as someone suggested. Last, I only used half the sugar, knowing it would be significantly less sweet, but wanting to try it, in hopes of being healthier; an experiment. Results - Not sweet enough for a dessert, alone, but with a little ice cream on top, perfect. You may think that defeats the purpose, but the alternative, full sugar would be much worse! Here's the best part though - can have it for breakfast and not feel guilty at all. I did it w/a few spoonfuls of plain yogurt on top. Excellent texture. Delicious. Might try with chopped toasted walnuts next time or some ground flax to add a contrasting texture. Yummy though, just as it is.

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I used a different frosting, because I love cream cheese in frosting and also wanted to read lots of reviews and be sure that the frosting I chose would pipe well. The cake part of this recipe though, was absolutely delicious. A delicate delicious lemony flavor. I subbed in yogurt for half of the sour cream just to be a little healthier and because I had it in the fridge. I'm sure it's great using these 2 in any proportions. Oh! I also added just a pinch for baking powder as someone had noted and the cake was very nice and fluffy.

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Loved this. By far the best bean salad I've ever tasted. I added a 2nd stalk of celery (small dice) and cut the vinegar and oil to about 80%. Still plenty of liquid. Delicious after just 2 hrs of marinading, but much better on day 2 after flavors melded.

Warm Orange and Mushroom Salad

Reviewed: May 2, 2011
I forgot to add the toasted hazelnuts! Was still one of the best salads I have ever had. Oh! I used half portobellos and half buttons because that's what I had on hand. I'd bet any mix of mushrooms would work well. Delicious!

Tomato Bisque III

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Absolutely delicious! We had only 1 can of fire-roasted tomatoes left from our last trip to the States, the other was plain diced. Also, used milk rather than cream. Healthier. Still rich and awesome! Will make as soon as we can get our hands on more fire-roasted tomatoes! Could be a while...
