Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Doubled the spices and still it was bland :( Made pretty little cakes that were nice to look at though.

Gramma's Date Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
Absolutely delicious! Changes I made based on reviews and personal preference: 1) For the 3/4 C butter, I used 1/4 C butter, 1/4 C coconut oil and 1/4 C applesauce. I melted before adding to my dry mix. . 2) Used whole wheat flour, worked great. . 3) Halved the sugar in the crust and omitted it entirely from the dates. Can't imagine adding it--would be WAY too sweet. . 4) Added some cloves, cinnamon and allspice to the date mix, which gave a spicy Fall flavor. May leave them out next time as it masked the date flavor. . 5) Precooked the bottom crust for 15 min, no problems with mine falling apart. . Thanks for such a lovely recipe!

Almond-Topped Fish

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
We liked this a lot. I broiled mine for a few minutes at the end, to crisp and blacken the edges of the almonds.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
This was very good. I subbed skim milk for the cream, and it was still thick and creamy. It was very hearty, not quite as soupy as I wanted. Really could almost be eaten with a fork! I had no wild rice so used minute brown rice and my own seasonings (bay leaf, some garlic, onion, parsley). Also added veggies--carrots and celery.

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
Yep, it was just as good as they all are saying...moist, flavorful, perfect breading texture. I might decrease the parm next time...it was almost TOO flavorful. I didn't have lemon so had to omit it, but next time I will be sure to add it. I had enough breading for 4 chops, so decrease if you're only making 2. Baked in a baking dish lined with aluminum foil, and I thought the crusts were plenty crisp enough.

Scalloped Corn and Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2010
Too eggy. Added dried onion flakes to try to up the flavor, and then it just tasted eggy and oniony. I did omit the sugar, but don't believe it would have improved the dish.

Honey Orange Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
I didn't have time to marinade, so I just dumped all the ingredients in a frying pan and boiled the chicken in them, using extra OJ and a little water. When the chicken was done I took it out and added about 1-tsp cornstarch dissolved in water to the pan, and boiled the marinade into a sauce. The only changes I made were I used fresh basil and a fresh squeezed orange, and added another Tbsp honey. It was a very pretty, very easy, very yummy dish! Probably would have been bland without the sauce though.

Absolutely Sinful Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
I would have given 3 stars, but my husband would have given 5, so we averaged it out to 4. This was a very cakelike cookie, without being dry. I made one batch to be a plain choco chip cookie, without the added chocolate in the dough. I would add more vanilla next time if I made them that way again. I made a second batch using the chocolate (Ghirardelli) and subing PB chips for chocolate. They were ok... but the dough is not very chocolatey, even though I doubled the amount of chocolate used. It is more of a light hint.

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
For those with peanut allergies--made these with almond butter for a twist, and they were fantastic! My mother in law liked them too :)

Sweet Potato Pecan Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
Just made these and they were delicious. Used whole wheat flour and Cinnamon instead of nutmeg, but followed the directions to a T otherwise. They were a very soft and moist waffle, not crispy. Served with maple syrup and whipped cream, and it was reminiscent of pumpkin pie.

Oat Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
This worked out very well for me. It is obviously a little denser than white bread, but overall for as much whole wheat as it has, it is lighter than I expected. And I used only one cup of all-purpose (used one cup of white whole wheat flour for the other). Ground the oatmeal in a coffee grinder--thanks, other reviewers for this tip! Omitted the sugar and used 2 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp molasses to sweeten. If you want a nice texture in this loaf, be sure you knead well--for the FULL 8 minutes, as this activates the gluten. Thanks for a fantastic recipe!!

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
This was good. My husband gushed about it every bite! I was worried about it being soggy as other reviewers said, so I used only half as much egg and milk, and only made the bread one-layer deep. The bread I used was homemade Oat Whole Wheat Bread from AllRecipes. I sliced it into thick chunks. It stood up great and was not soggy at all, just moist. Baked in an 8x8 at 400 for 30 min.

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This was so good! I didn't change a thing, and it turned out perfect. The texture is very soft and moist, somewhere between a pudding and a cake.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Have made these twice and everyone begs for the recipe. I can hardly get them through the door before the whole box has been devoured. They are messy and can be a little frustrating when dipping them, but are WELL worth the effort.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This was a delicious pie, and I don't even like banana cream. I only had 2 bananas, so couldn't use four, but 2 worked fine. Topped with meringue. Everything came together perfectly and it set up like a charm. Will make again!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever.

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
We liked these a lot! The cookie dough did cook most of the way, even though the cake batter was raw around it. Next time I will freeze them in the deep freeze or something. But even with them cooking partway they were oh-so-tasty. To make it easier to make I used a choco boxed cake mix and cheated and used a cookie mix from a box as well.
