Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
I made this with my daughter and it was a pretty easy recipe and came out yummy. We made a few modifications to make it a tad healthier. We used one cup of whole wheat flour and one cup white, and used just under a cup of sugar (to make it a bit sweeter) but mixed in some Splenda brown sugar in with the white. In addition to fresh blueberries, we added chopped fresh strawberries. We also lowered the temp to 375 and watched it carefully, taking it out in about 21 minutes. My husband loved these, had two with his coffee as soon as they cooled a bit and he was wishing for more.

Amazing Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
I used Greek vanilla yogurt instead of the mayo, as was suggested by other reviewers, so it felt much healthier, but it was pretty bland. My daughter, who really liks butternut squash, felt like it was neither sweet nor savory and she didn't finish her portion. My husband and I liked it more than she did but it did seem to need "something". I ended up putting some maple syrup on it and it actually improved it a great deal. I'm not sure I'll make this again since its a bit labor intensive but we like very flavorful and spicy foods so we might not be the best judges.

Coconut Custard Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I'm giving this 5 stars after making just a few adjustments, but overall, this is a terrific recipe. I never made coconut custard pie in my life even though it is my favorite, so I had a high standard in my mind of how I hoped it would taste. I read the other reviews and did cut the sugar amount down to a little over 3/4 of a cup and it was definitely sweet enough; do not use sweetened shredded coconut, that would make it too sweet; I had skim milk so added half and half to make it creamier--3/4 c skim and 1/4 c half and half. I also did 1/2 tsp vanilla and added 1/4 tsp coconut rum which I had in my cupboard; baked it 15 minutes and then covered the edges with foil so the edges do not over cook while the custard sets. Make sure you follow the order of the ingredients carefully, the first time I made this I added the butter last and it took its toll on its consistency but it still tasted great. The second time came out perfectly. I am not a baker by any means, so my family and I were thrilled that it came out so good! And my 13 year old daughter helped me make it--and eat it! A perfect pie for a snowy day...or any day!
