Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
i can't say i'd make these this way again. they were dry (& i was careful not to over mix the batter), and very bland, mostly i tasted cinnamon. i would suggest using 1/2 white flour and maybe even reducing the flour by 1/4 cup, or adding 1/4 cup of o.j. but my 1 yr old just gobbled up an entire muffin and loved it, plus, they're healthy, and i think they'd taste better with a dab of butter on them, so i'll give them 4 stars.

Taco Bake

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Wow. I seriously did not think this would be as good as it was. This was SO SO good, I kid you not. Changes I made for personal preference and to enhance flavor: I added a little bit of frozen minced garlic to the onion when sauteeing. I also used a jar of Classico Four Cheese Sauce in place of the tomato sauce. I used muenster cheese, because that's what I had on hand, I added a handful or two of chopped grape tomatoes, I left out the green chilies (didn't have any), and I used whole wheat pasta. I baked for 15 minutes, then added the rest of the cheese and crunched up taco shells, and baked another 15 minutes. Ate with home made guacamole. AMAZING! Will be making this again and again. Even my pickiest 3 year old, who was skeptical and didn't want to try it, ate it and loved it. Make this, you'll love it!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Love. The only thing I add is some sauteed onion (about 2 Tbsp.) and a tiny tad of sesame oil. This is delicious with Soba noodles. So easy to make (about 5 min.) Kid friendly, adult friendly, you can't go wrong. Sometimes I add some toasted sesame seeds too. I plan to play around with it and try making it with soy butter for a play group where peanuts are not allowed. I'll update when I try that. Addition: I added sesame tahini along with the peanut butter tonight and it was to die for!!

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
Wonderful. My two year old gobbled them up. I refrigerated what was left and ate them the next day, cold. I didn't have dry milk powder, so I omitted that. I used 2 bananas, and added pumpkin pie spice to the mixture. SO good!!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
SO good! I actually made these twice, the second time forgot to add the oil; I was worried they wouldn't be eatable, but they were amazing. I liked them *a lot* better without the oil and everyone in my family agreed. They were light and fluffy and moist.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
Oh.My.God. I used fresh pumpkin (it makes a world of difference). Positively the best pumpkin pie, hands down. I followed the recipe to a T, aside from using fresh pumpkin. Wow.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Okay, so I changed it up a bit, but still felt the need to review it. I doubled the recipe to make 2 deep dish pies. I made it with 1/2 pumpkin puree and 1/2 sweet potato puree. I also doubled the spices (plus a little bit extra), added 1 tsp. of vanilla, 1/2 tsp. cloves. Put into pre-made deep dish pie crusts. Cover edges with foil or they'll burn! Very good pie.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
I used Pillsbury Pie crusts to save on time. I boiled cubed boneless chicken breasts in 4 cups of chicken broth for 10 minutes. Added cubed potatoes for 5 minutes to parboil. I also added garlic to the onion, butter and flour mixture. Added peas, corn and fresh green beans at the end before baking. Also added 1/2 C. milk, and a few teaspoons of corn starch because I used extra chicken broth. Also added a little bit of sage, thyme and parsley. I made one big pie. Brushed egg whites on bottom/top crusts to prevent sogging. Then made mini pies with the rest of the filling in muffin tins. Perfect!

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
pretty good. i halved the sugar and it is still really too sweet for my taste. i think i'd use about 1/2 cup next time. i also used 1/2 cup of butter and it was plenty buttery. the thing that i don't love about it, is that i could taste the soda in it. i'm not a soda drinker, so i didn't like that. if i made this again, i'd leave out the soda and pour apple juice or something else over it instead.

Banana-Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
Very, very good. I, like others, made a few changes. I used 2+ C. of shredded zucchini (it was probably closer to 2 1/2 C.) I used 3 very large and very brown bananas (browner=tastier). I subbed 1 1/4 C. apple sauce for the oil. I reduced the white sugar to 1/2 C. I did not use nuts, but used the dried cranberries. It came out SO SO good and moist. Those of you who have dry bread: You are probably over-mixing the batter. Once you add the dry ingredients, you only want to mix enough so that it's moist. Do NOT over mix, or it'll be dry. Also, you need to use very ripe bananas. The browner, the moister, and the sweeter, better for baking. Lastly, I highly suggest using apple sauce in place of the oil, it's moister this way. Use 1 + 1/4 C. of unsweetened apple sauce instead. It took a while longer to bake this way, about 1 hour, 10 minutes, but keep checking it, and don't fill the bread pans to the top if you don't want it to take as long to bake.

Orange-Ginger Tofu Triangles

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Very good. Next time I would bake them with even less of the sauce than I did this time. The tofu was a bit soggy, but it tasted pretty good. Added brown rice, broccoli and shredded carrots.

Spinach Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
This is what I did: I sauteed 1/4 red onion in some olive oil, and added a clove of minced fresh garlic. I added one bag of Trader Joe's frozen brown rice. Tossed about 1/2 C. of frozen corn into the pan. Added some chopped fresh broccoli and some frozen spinach. Sauteed till just about done. Poured all of that into a sprayed baking dish. Put one layer of cooked chicken on top. Added two shredded carrots on top of mixture. Added 1/3 C. of grated Munster Cheese, and 1/4 C. of Parm. cheese. Then I added a mixture of: 1 can of cream of mushroom soup with 1/2 C. of plain yogurt mixed in. (Next time I wold use Cream of chicken soup mixed with a bit of milk instead of cream of the cream of mushroom/yogurt mixture). I baked it at 375, covered for 25 minutes. Very good, warm, filling dinner.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is EXCEPTIONAL bread. All we kept saying, while biting into the warm, mouth watering, perfectly sweet bread, was "Wow, Oh my God!" The only thing I changed; I used 3 C. whole wheat flour. Other than that, I did everything as written. You *have* to make sure the water temperature is exactly right when dissolving the yeast, otherwise you'll have a disaster. If you don't have a thermometer, just put your hand in the running water until it's just a little too hot, then turn it down to just bearable. By the time you put it into a cool bowl, it should be about 110 degrees F.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
WOW! This was AMAZING. Even my 18 month old gobbled it up. I changed a few things: I used a few squirts of fresh lemon juice in place of the vinegar because I didn't have any. I also used olive oil in place of butter to make it healthier, and let the garlic saute in that for a minute or so. To thicken it, I added a Tbsp. of flour to the melted butter mixture and stirred it over low heat for 30 seconds or so. It was the best broccoli I've ever had. I can't wait to make it again tomorrow.

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
these were pretty good. i subbed whole wheat flour for the white. used honey in place of the white, and added a fair amount of frozen blueberries. topped with honey and butter. my toddler loved them. they tasted super, but looked really flat. next time i will add some ground up flax meal to make them healthier, and might try making them with banana to switch it up.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
WOW!! This is better than any bread I've ever had. Changes I made for my own liking: I used 1/2 C. of honey instead of 1/4. I used a little bit more yeast (3 tsp altogether) I added: 1/2 C. rolled oats, 1/4 C. wheat germ, and 1/4 C. of flax seed meal. This is so amazing, I'm afraid I'm going to eat the whole loaf. Some body stop me!
