Moravian Ginger Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I baked up a batch of these and when I first tried them...I felt the molasses flavor was somewhat overpowering. However, after being stored in an air tight container for a couple days, the spice flavor comes to the fore and they taste really good. I might make the spice measurements heaping the next time I try them. I baked them up to make ice cream sandwiches to store in the freezer. I use about a fourth of a cup non fat vanilla frozen yogurt spread between two of these cookies, then wrap each one in plastic wrap and store a batch of them in a plastic freezer bag. They make a great low calorie treat.

Zucchini Pineapple Bread I

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
For healthy muffins: I substituted applesauce for half of the oil and then cut the sugar in half to 3/4 cup (with the added applesauce and pineapple it is plenty sweet). Also I reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp. and only used 3 eggs. I added a half cup of walnuts to give it some crunch. I baked the muffins (it made 12 huge muffins) at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Sooo good!

Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Very good cookies...not too sweet, but nice combination of flavors. I added the 2 tsp. of vanilla, as others suggested, and will continue to make it that way in the future. These cookies freeze very well and when you want a treat, take a few out of the freezer, cover with a paper towel, and microwave for 25 sec and then for another 25 sec if they feel like they need it....Yummy.

Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2009
I made these muffins exactly as the recipe is written (I usually try to do this the first time). I will definitely make them again because they are very moist without having a lot of oil in them. The additions of the carrots, coconut, raisins, walnuts, pineapple etc were very good and in just the right amounts. The only thing I will change next time is to reduce the amount of cinnamon. I thought 3 tsp. was a bit overwhelming and left a strong spice taste in my mouth that was hard to get rid of. Next time I will try 2 tsp. of cinnamon. Oh, I didn't get 24 muffins, but only 16, but I filled the muffins cups 3/4 full. These muffins were even better the next day.

Pecan Tassies

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
I just made my first pecan tassies today using this recipe. Oh my, they are just wonderful. I followed the recipe closely. I agree that the crust does not need added sugar. It is a nice contrast to the sweet interior of the tassie. I had never made little crusts like this before but by the time I got to the last ones, I was getting the feel for it (I had to cut my fingernail short on my right index finger so I could shape them without putting my fingernail through the bottoms). I used almost a half cup of chopped nuts in the bottom as suggested by others and a half teaspoon in each crust worked out great. I will be serving them tomorrow in our art gallery for a reception. They should be a hit.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
Mexican Chocolate Cookies: I wanted to bring dessert for a Cinco de Mayo dinner at our church, so I took this basic recipe and added 1 tsp. cinnamon. I didn't have chocolate chips in the house, but I had 4 squares of semi sweet chocolate, which I chopped up and mixed in. I left out the walnuts (I don't think they eat too many walnuts in Mexico). Anyway, the cookies came out very good...with just a hint of cinnamon, which is how I like Mexican hot chocolate. This is an interesting variation on a great recipe.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
These are wonderful cookies...sort of a cross between a chewy macaroon and a regular cookie. I must admit that I put the recipe together first thing in the morning when I was half asleep and later I realized, that even though I had doubled the recipe, had only put in 1 cube of butter (1/2 cup) instead of one full cup. Well..serendipity.. they were great! Before baking I rolled them in walnut size balls then dipped the top of the ball in a little shredded coconut..which slightly toasted while baking, looked nice and people at church knew what they were getting inside.

WWII Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
I took these cookies to a church social...they were a hit (didn't have any to take home - darn!). The only changes I made was a few suggestions from others: I used 3 TBSP dark molasses (since that was all I had) and added 1/2 tsp. cloves. The cookies were much more tangy and interesting than regular oatmeal cookies.

Baked Oatmeal I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I have made this recipe many times..it really is nice for someone who is dieting, like I am. I cut the recipe in half and make it in a 6 inch round casserole dish and it makes four nice servings, which refrigerate very well for another morning. To heat it up later, I put my serving in a bowl, microwave it for 30 sec., then pour the milk over it and return it to the microwave for another 25 sec...and it tastes just like it came out of the oven...especially with the warm milk. I did substitute applesauce for the oil and cut down the sugar to taste in the oatmeal itself (2Tbsp brown sugar)and then added a 1/4 of an apple, peeled and diced. I figured out the points for Weight Watchers, in case you are interested..with low fat milk it comes to 4 1/2 points per serving and makes a very healthy filling breakfast.

Spiced Mixed Nuts

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Wow...what a wonderful, easy, recipe...and with no butter, like some of the other spiced nut recipes I have seen. I just made a batch for a potluck tonight and I can't resist sneaking a taste whenever I walk by them. They crisped up nicely as they cooled. The spices are well balanced and not overwhelming...the only change I made was to substitute 1/8 tsp. cayenne, instead of the cloves. The cayenne gives it just a hint of hot spice at the end of the munch. I used mixed nuts without peanuts that I bought in bulk at my grocery store...that way I could fish out my favorite kinds, as I scooped them. It took .80lb to make 2 1/2 cups. I will add this to my list of Christmas gift goodies next year.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
Really Very Good....The moistest banana muffin(or bread) I have ever eaten. I only had small bananas in the house so I used 4 of them and it came out perfect. If you really are a banana lover, as I am, I would suggest leaving out the vanilla or added spices in the muffins...so the pure banana taste is the prime flavor.
