No Bake Cookies II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Good recipe, reminds me of what I had as a child! I used splenda (1/2 of sugar amount) + some honey, used part coconut oil with butter and substituted part coconut for the oats (total 2 cups, not 3). They did not set up, I am not sure if it is because I did not cook it long enough or because I made some changes, it still satisfied my chocolate sweet tooth! Thanks for posting, I made one recipe that added peanut butter, but that was not what my family made, we used this recipe.

Chocolate Chip Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Turned out delicious, even though I substituted some ingredients, not too sweet. I used sugar free chocolate chips (from Walmart) and mostly artificial sweetener, used just enough sugar for rising. I used some soy, oat and whole wheat flour that I had premixed, more all purpose than the others (just regular flour, not bread). I was not in a cinnamon mood, so used ground vanilla beans. I recently got my first bread maker, a Westbend 41400. I missed the 'add in' beeps, so kneaded in the chips at the beginning of the third rise. I decided to freeze half the dough (without chips), to help with portion control. As someone already mentioned, the dough was very sticky (I had added more flour while it was mixing) and it took a bit to get the chips mixed in, somewhat messy process. I had set the machine for a 2 lb loaf and medium crust and it was pretty crunchy (probably because I only baked half the dough). The loaf was not dense, it is a perfect texture. Thanks for posting the recipe and comments. I love so many versatile bread machine recipes here, I had to get some home exercise equipment to burn calories!

I love this recipe! I used part whole wheat flour and made the dough in my bread machine. I rolled the crust thin, did not mess with the lacing this time, added some spices on the top and served the sauce on the side, as many suggested. It was perfect and I will make it regularly. I used mozzarella with home made cottage cheese (less fat and salt and no preservatives) and added onions, garlic and green peppers, no meat. I split the dough into 5 pieces, made 2 small calzones and one small pizza and froze the other two. Loved the thin crust pizza, as well as the calzones. The frozen dough is just as good as the fresh. Can't wait to try different combinations! Thank you for the awesome recipe and all the helpful comments.

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2011
I love these! I make them with artificial sugar, about 1/2 the amount listed for white sugar. I sometimes use reduced fat peanut butter for less calories. With these changes, they are not quite as good as the recipe as written. Sometimes I leave out the baking soda and the cookies do not spread as much and are chewier, it provides variety. These cookies have really helped me to stay away from higher carb sweets and I am so grateful for the recipe. I am looking forward to trying it with natural peanut butter and other "nut" butters.

Classic Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Wonderful recipe, exactly what I wanted and so easy! I added dry mustard, a dash of cayenne and an egg (I don't think the egg was necessary), and used half sharp cheddar and half Mexican mix. I did not double the cheese or evaporated milk and love the consistency and baked at a lower temp for less time. Comfort food and memories from childhood, thank you!

Black Bean Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2011
Excellent recipe! I did not like the taste of the cooking sherry in the soup, so I added a little Worcestershire sauce and it is delicious (maybe I didn't wait long enough for the sherry to meld with the other flavors before tasting). I had some homemade salt free salsa that I needed to use up and used it in place of the canned tomatoes and I cooked dried black beans. I did not have cilantro, but I am not a big fan of it.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Wonderful recipe. Like most, I changed it to suit my tastes. I left out the rice because the dish has enough carbs. I made 1/2 recipe and only used two cans of beans and added a can of refried beans, onion, garlic, trio of sweet peppers, cumin, chili powder and cayenne. The tomatoes were salsa spiced and the refried beans were green chile with lime, no fat. The refried beans added a nice lime flavor that complimented the dish and also thickened and added that binding of ingredients (I also smashed some of the beans with a flat wooden spoon to increase this effect). Corn was recently on sale and I cooked the ears and cut the corn off the cob, it is so flavorful and sweet. The trio of peppers added a little more color to an already colorful dish. I will make this over and over! Thanks for the recipe and for those who shared their changes or additions.

Easter Grass Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
A good slaw, very pretty, although I did not have all of the veggies. I shredded the apple and next time will chop it, like the directions say.....it kind of got lost in the slaw.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Delicious, healthy low cost recipe, thank you for posting it! I made 1/2 the recipe. I used whole wheat flour, sugar free apple sauce, one whole egg, used Splenda for the sugar and sugar free maple syrup for the honey. I am glad that I found this recipe, an easy snack when I am on the run that is low fat, sugar free and has protein!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
Excellent. When I got blueberries on sale for $1, I knew what I wanted to make and found this wonderful recipe. I added more milk, sugar substitute and vanilla as suggested. Tried a few variations - added lemon zest to one and a bit of oatmeal to one - did not care for either. Also added some pureed cottage cheese in place of some of the milk (in my effort to get enough protein in my diet) and that did not make much difference in the pancakes, a bit moister. Thank you for posting this, it is the best no oil added pancake I have ever had!

Zucchini Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
The recipe turned out wonderful even with my substitutions and additions! I had a lot of leftovers and they worked perfectly. I used mexican squash instead of zuccini and added onion, garlic and spinach. I used blended cottage cheese instead of the ricotta and part sharp cheddar with the mozzerella. I used no-fat evaportated milk instead of the half and half. It is so good, I am glad I planted squash in the garden! Thank you for the recipe and all those who made suggestions.

Curried Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Excellent soup, nice blend of flavors. I left out the extra water and the sugar and didn't blend the soup. Will make this again!
