Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
We loved this recipe! We all eat salsa like a main dish and we all had a huge bowlful, except my brother, who doesn't like onions. I didn't care for the cilantro; I think I'll do parsley next time.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I LOVE this recipe! I would give it 6 stars if I could! If the dough is sticky, just add a little extra flour to the dough. Instead of the all-purpose flour and whole wheat, I use white whole wheat flour (King Arthur brand). I like the taste better, plus it's only one flour I have to use so it's easier! Also, instead of the butter, I use 1/4 cup canola oil. I can tell no difference between the two. I have made the original recipe a billion times, as well as a orange biscuit version. I increased the sugar to a 1/4 cup, used OJ instead of milk, added about 2 tsp. orange zest, and baked the rest as follows. For an extra special touch I mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar and a little over 2 tsp. OJ and drizzle that over the biscuits. They are delicious! Hope that helps!

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I wish this worked, because it had a pretty good flavor. It turned out chewy (in a bad way) and dense. Sorry!

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This chili is sooo good! I actually put in red cooking wine instead of the red wine vinegar. Thanks!

Impossibly Easy Coconut Pie

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This recipe is so easy! My brother can't eat dairy so this recipe works out wonderfully for our family. I just substitute soy milk for the milk. Also, I didn't have any Bisquick on hand, so I substituted 1/2 cup flour and a teaspoon baking powder.

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
I like to make this recipe when I'm in a rush; it's so easy! We normally have chicken breasts on hand already cooked, which makes it even easier. ~Later: I'm going to try to make this a little healthier by substituting a homemade sauce (1 cup chicken broth, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1 Tbsp. flour, salt, and pepper) for the chicken soup.

LaVanda's Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This is a great fried chicken recipe! Talk about easy!! Instead of the black pepper and the garlic salt, I did seasoned salt and garlic powder. I cooked the chicken in the oven instead of a pan. Yummy!

Easy Pizza Sauce II

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
The first time I made this sauce I found that it ran over the sides of my pizza if I use sauce as the recipe calls for, but when I used crushed tomato, it worked perfectly! Overall, great recipe!

Springtime Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Okay, I made tons of changes, but it was still WONDERFUL!! I took out the bacon, kiwi, and mandarin orange simply because I didn't have them on hand. Second, I took out the onion and eggs because I don't care for them. I didn't make as many changes to the dressing--all I did was use regular mustard instead of spicy brown mustard. Oh, I didn't have any croutons on hand, either. So, my salad turned out much simpler than it was supposed to be, but it was still GREAT!! Thank you so much!

This tastes so much like what you get in a Japanese restaurant!

Whole Wheat Muffins

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Wonderful recipe! It's really easily adapted. I've tried banana blueberry muffins by substituting the milk for bananas (I added a little milk to soften the mixture) and adding blueberries! I'm going to try lemon poppy seed muffins sometime--yum!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
Okay, I'm updating my review after making them for the third time. I was hesitant to try them after not-so-good results the first time, but I'm glad I did. First, I halved the salt. It was plenty salty. Second, I increased the sugar to 2 Tbsp. Third, I decreased the oil (I used this instead of butter) to about 1 1/2 Tbsp. Fourth, I used white whole wheat flour. It worked perfectly. I also put a little more milk in because it was too thick. So, all that said, I think this is a good recipe, but not fantastic.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
Something was off about the flavor of this cake. My mom said she thought it had black tea in it, but I didn't add any. Granted, I did use milk instead of water and I left out the cocoa because I'm allergic. It's kinda growing on me, though. I might make this again with different changes.

French Toast II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could. It was very easy to make, and although I burned a couple, they still tasted good! I didn't really measure anything except the milk, as it didn't seem necessary. The centers turned out a little soggy. Next time I'm going to cut off the crusts, cut the bread into bite-size pieces, and cook those. Great recipe!

Tomato Tang Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I thought this recipe was good, but not great. It had too much vinegar in it. I didn't put the basil, thyme, or ketchup in it, either, so it probably would've tasted better with those added.

Home-Style Vegetable Beef Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I doubled it for my food-consuming family. Instead of using all V-8 juice, I used a can of V-8 as well as a can of tomato. I didn't put the water in. Delicious!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Delicious! Very easy to make! It's also very good with lemons and regular limes (those little key limes are a pain to juice), and picky eaters love it. UPDATE: I've been making it now with fat free sweetened condensed milk and nobody can tell the difference!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
I left the the flax seed meal out and I added a Tbsp. more of sugar. I didn't use whole wheat pastry flour-just whole wheat flour. Delicious!
