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.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I didn't even have to think about what to rate this. It was the best chicken I've ever had. I will be making this on a regular basis. I cut way back on the sugar and left the cover off to cook, as other reviewers suggested.

Rosemary Chicken with Orange-Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Wow, this one is a keeper. Make sure to use real maple syrup..the sauce boiled down nice and thick because of it. Very sweet and sticky, yet has a tangy zip to it too. The perfect blend of flavors. Yum, yum, yum.

Green Banana Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I am surprised; I was skeptical of these because I HATE green bananas. But they were delicious! I really couldn't tell them from regular fries, except that the texture of these was nicer than potato fries. I will be making these on a regular basis-thanks!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This recipe has a 5-star rating for a reason. They are wonderful cookies! I even "healthified" mine and they were still yummy(blackstrap molasses and whole wheat blend flour.)

Eggplant -- Easy, Good and Tasty

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I put a little too much dressing-a dab goes a long way! I followed suggestions of other viewers and baked the breaded eggplant for 10 minutes before I added the parm, tomato and dressing. Then I put them back in the oven for another 10-15 min and skipped the broil step altogether. Soo tasty--my husband and brother ate them up.

Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
My husband and I both loved this! I used lowfat cheese and canned corn (all I had). What a delicious twist on boring old mashed potatoes.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I used to make a different whole wheat crust that I loved, so I was reluctant to try something new...but wow, am I glad I did! This was SO good. It was not as bread-like as other whole wheat crusts (unless you let it rise for longer than directed). I let mine rise only 15min in the microwave after I nuked a cup of water for a minute to make it warm. I rolled it out onto a pizza stone dusted with corn meal. I pre-baked at 425 for 7min. Afterwards, I brushed the edges with olive oil and sprinkled with parmesian and garlic. Then I topped with sauce, mozzerella, feta, tomatos, pepper rings, red onions. I sprinkled basil and a touch of olive oil over the whole thing and baked at 425 for 15 minutes. [One more thing--I subbed oat bran for the wheat germ.] Perfect, chewy, delicious! Thank you so much; this will be my new recipe from now on!

Coconut Cream Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
yum! This beats the other recipe I was using. I used unsweetened, dried coconut and moistened it in water. I used coconut oil instead of butter. I had no cream of tartar for my meringue, so I heated 1/3 cup cold water plus 1 tbsp cornstarch until just thickened (stir often!), cooled it, and whipped it into the whites after the sugar. No sweating or beading this way and it won't alter the taste as much as cream of tartar. The result was delicious!!!!!

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.

Microwave Mochi

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Turned out fantastic! Chewy, sweet and delicious. I wrapped mine around vanilla frozen yogurt, which was a huge mess but tasted delicious. Just like the store bought Trader Joes Mochi ice cream. Next, I am going to try it with green tea ice cream, and maybe add a drop of food coloring. Only changes I made was I also used agave nectar instead of sugar, and I just rolled in plain cornstarch instead of the mixture. I followed the advice of another reviewer and microwaved for 2 min at a time, stirring between, and I am glad I did. Prevented a hard top and allowed me to get it just the right consistency.

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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!
