Orange Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2014
Wonderful and moist. I used some coconut oil and greek yogurt in place of butter. My advice would be don't be shy with the zest and juice- it really makes these cookies shine and doesn't taste odd like I was afraid it would. I only had a small orange so I made some cookies plain and they were drier and didn't set as well. Great recipe.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
Very tasty! Moist and not too dense. I used mostly applesauce for oil and used all whole wheat pastry flour. I also used oat bran instead of wheat germ. I tried the following flavor combinations, mixed into the batter: pb + dry-roasted peanuts, raspberries + mini chocolate chips + fresh lemon zest and juice, mashed banana (be careful because too much will make it mushy) + chopped banana + cinnamon, and dried cherries + toasted walnuts. The peanutty one was a favorite!

Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
Tasty! I think that the result of this dip depends on the freshness of the ingredients, like the cilantro. Will make again, wouldn't skip the oil.

Veggie Sneak In Meatballs

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
I think the meatballs would hold together a lot better if you squeezed the moisture out of the veggies (or at least the onions) in a cheesecloth or towel. Probably a good flavor, though.

Hash Brown and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
Great texture, lacking in flavor though. Decreased cheese, used a whole onion and added some mushroom and spinach, mixed ham and sausage for meat. Very good with ketchup, though! Will try red peppers with the potatoes next time.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
Awesome! Used ground cayenne pepper and added to 1 lb shrimp. Might increase the heat next time. Why did we ever buy packets, anyway?

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
Wonderful! Very chocolaty and rich. Accidentally only used 8 tbsps butter (half butter and half coconut oil) so the cookies didn't spread out much at all. Looked kinda like a truffle.

French Silk Chocolate Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
Be VERY careful if you want to try almond extract. I read a review to try it and added a tiny bit. Three out of five people tried it for pi day didn't like it and thought it was too strong. Also use real vanilla if you can, it makes much of the flavor. Other than that, a fantastic pie! I beat it well for the full time and it was silky and fluffy. It filled a smallish homemade oreo crust well. topped with chocolate shavings, served with whipped cream on the side but I think it's great without. I also used 4 tbsp. dutch process cocoa powder like one reviewer said, mixed well and it turned out great (except for the fact that I spilled cocoa all over the table, chair and floor when trying to move my mixing to appease movie watchers nearby). Very tasty, will try again.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
Great! Good lemon and garlic flavor. I'd like to try other flavors, as well. Used the advice of reviewer SonjaL and blended it in my mini food processer. One can of chickpeas is about 1.5 cups. I stuck with just paprika and took this to a class party. We liked it and I enjoyed that it is healthy and tasty.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
Very tasty! They devoured them at international fiesta today. I don't know if I'm just lucky or I made my puffs a bit smaller but I didn't poke holes and they didn't sink. I used french vanilla and they were sublime. Will try drizzling with chocolate next time.

Easy Mini Quiches

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
Great little bites. My Dad couldn't stop eating them! I used some fresh thyme in place of parsley, cheddar cheese with a little grated Parmesan, and subbed about 2/3 cup flour with some baking powder for the pancake mix. They baked up nicely but were done before they got brown on the top- I'm careful to avoid overcooked eggs. Good recipe to have on hand for my mom's MOPS meetings.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
Very good! Went fast at our Christmas french club meeting, and at my house. Some people called them "brownie cookies". Relatively easy, used silicone baking mats and baked at the top of the oven as one reviewer suggested and it worked like a charm. I also used dutch process for about 2/3 of the cocoa. Great cookie to have on hand for Christmas!

Excellent and Healthy Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
Delicious! My mom admitted that the texture was better than Jiffy box mix by a lot. I used vanilla yogurt and with the written amont of sugar it would be perfect.

Chocolate Oatmeal Porridge

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Very tasty and chocolaty. I used a mixture of old fashioned oats, quick-cooking oats, and oat bran, and used half 2 percent and half almond milk. I Also reduced the sugar to about about 3 tablespoons and it was very chocolaty, tasty, and great with a bit of yogurt. It had the perfect consistency after about 5 minutes. Dad and I liked it, my sister needed more sweetener. Great oatmeal!
