Super Crunch Oven Cooked Honey Dipped Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This was fantastic! I used chicken tenders instead of wings. Didn't have any cornflakes so I used Uncle Sam cereal. It was just the right amount of spicy for us, but it does have a kick! Overall this was easy to make, yummy, and much healthier than fried chicken. I will be putting this in the regular rotation.

Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
I made this into butternut squash ravioli, and these noodles were hearty and filling. I used whole wheat flour but otherwise followed the recipe. Served with an easy Parmesan sauce: 2 tbsp of flour, 2 cups skim milk, 1 tbsp melted butter, cooked on medium and stirred constantly until thickened. When thick add 6tbsp parm. The parm sauce went perfect with these noodles, but not with my squash filling. :)

Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Beware if you like light or flat pancakes. These are hearty, thick, cake-like, moist. I used oat bran for the oats and whole wheat pastry flour. I also added a Tbsp of cider vinegar to the milk and let it "sour" for a few minutes before adding to the dry ingredients. This acts similar to buttermilk and makes for a wonderfully fluffy result. These are so flavorful..they taste like pumpkin pie in pancake format. We served them with real maple syrup and whipped cream. My hubby added blueberries to one of his while it cooked and he reports it was delicious.

Flank Steak Pinwheels

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
The flavor was delicious, but the meat was dry, even though I reduced cook time to 50 min. Will decrease the cook time even more next time.

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Mmm! Had to use crushed crackers, as I had no bread crumbs on hand, but it was still delicious. The only reason it gets 4 instead of 5 is that it is slightly bland. Next time I will add some Parmesan to do the trick.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
Really flaky, really good! Subbed about1/8-1/4 C of the shortening with Coconut oil to add a little extra flavor.

Cranberry Glop

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This was good. I chopped up the cranberries briefly in the food processor instead of leaving them whole. It was missing just something, so we sprinkled cinnamon on it to serve. Also we had whipped cream on top. Those two adjustments made it just right.

Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
To prevent sticking I covered my pizza stone with corn flour--no problems at all. I did follow others advice to use only 1 egg, and add extra flour, baking powder and olive oil. Baked 8 minutes, topped and then baked another 15 min. Was easy to make, but not the tastiest dough in the world. It was kind of crumbly instead of a smooth consistency when baked. There wasn't a lot of flavor, even with the addition of lots of spices and garlic.

Buffalo Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Easy, yummy, healthy if you leave the butter out. Made a bunch of it and used it all week for lunches. Yum!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This was incredibly good, and even easier to make. It took me like 5 minutes to prep it and throw it in the oven. Only four stars because it is so unhealthy (but hey, it is dessert...!) and because the crescent dough wasn't quite as flaky and yummy as homemade dough. The only changes I made were to use medium size apples quartered, instead large apples cut into eight pieces, so there was a little more apple to dough ratio. I may add a dash of vanilla next time, but it's probably not needed-was plenty good without!

Gingerbread Waffles

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
These were good. I doubled the batch, and added about 1/4 of applesauce to sweeten them just a bit. I served them with apple topping (2 apples sliced thinly, about 3 tbsp brown sugar, 1 tbsp maple syrup, 1-2 tsp cinn, cooked over medium heat till boiling, then simmered on on low till apples were just soft). It was good and plenty sweet enough for me. I also tried a few with chocolate chips mixed in. They were AWESOME! Served those ones with hot maple syrup.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Worth the effort! I baked mine in a plain ol' 9" pie dish and it came out great. I put the pie dish in a water bath (jelly roll pan with 1-2 inches water) to cook at the said time. I also sub 1/2 the ginger snaps with graham crackers for the crust. Turned out perfect! ***I did have some extra filling, and I made a sweet little cupcake with it. I put a gingersnap in the bottom of a muffin wrapper and poured filling on top. Baked it for a half hour at 350F. It was so cute and tasty--the gingersnap softened into a yummy crust on the bottom. I might make a whole batch like that next time.

Thai Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I left the chile sauce out because I don't like too much spice, and added some Red Hot instead. The result ended up being a little flavorless, and much too peanut-y. I doused the leftovers in soy sauce and they were a little better.

Poor Man's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
We thought this was pretty bland, even using beef broth instead of water and adding an extra garlic clove as well mushrooms and red peppers. The steak had a mushy outside from cooking in the water, and the veggies were way too done.

Vegetable Fried Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
This was pretty good. We also added 2 eggs. I cooked the rice in veggie stock/water mixture. I used frozen mixed veggies, plus fresh green pepps and oninon. I needed a bit more soy sauce to have enough flavor, but that may be because I left out the red pepper flakes for a dinner guest who cant eat spicy food.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Theese were quite good-my hubbie loves that they are healthy. I subbed brown sugar for the honey, and cut it back to 1/2 cup (wow, who has a whole cup of honey to use in just one batch of muffins?!) I also subbed applesauce for oil and used fat free yogurt. They needed just a little something more, so next time I may add a little more of the spices.
