Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
Don't listen to the negative reviews, these muffins are the best I've ever made... And the healthiest. Instead of eggs, I used generic Egg Beaters, instead of oil I used more apple sauce and instead of brown sugar I used generic Splenda brown sugar mixture (1/2 cup). I also added a half teaspoon of salt and an additional half teaspoon of allspice. One other tip: chop your strawberries into tiny bits and mix them into the flour mix BEFORE adding the bananas + wet mixture. This will help ensure that your strawberries don't sink and that each muffin contains an even amount of strawberries. Also, I used really giant muffin tins and got only six (6) muffins, not 12 as the recipe suggests.

Macadamia Nut Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
It tastes fine, but then again, this is simply a pecan pie made with macadamia nuts, so if you like traditional pecan pies made with corn syrup (I prefer pecan pies with caramel filling rather than corn syrup, but that's just me), you like macadamia nuts and you like eating pies, then you'll definitely be happy with this recipe. The reason I'm giving it only 3 stars is primarily because of its appearance. It's, unquestionably the ugliest looking pie I've ever made. The flotilla of whole, beige macadamias suspended in a crisp filling of dark corn syrup is visually unappealing. The macadamias really stand out with their light color and make the pie look unfinished or undercooked, even though it's not. The dark skin of pecans lends a great deal more appeal than light-colored nuts, at least with this recipe. There's a reason I was only able to find 2 or 3 recipes for macadamia pies and like 200-300 recipes for pecan pies. It's because macadamias don't look good and don't really taste all that great in pies. They're meant to be covered in chocolate or eaten plain right out of the jar. They're not the type of nut you put in a pie because of the aesthetic reasons I mentioned and because the sweet filling just doesn't compliment the subtle, understated taste of the macadamia nut, it overwhelms it. Don't take my word for it, though. If you are set on baking a macadamia pie for whatever reason, try it! It's a very easy recipe with a short prep time, so you've got nothing to lose.
