Gluten-Free Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
Growing up, all my family (parents, brother, sister, and I) ever fixed for birthdays was carrot cake or chocolate cake (our attempts at making a gluten-free yellow cake have always failed miserably). My daughter is 7 now and she's had enough; she begged this year for something new. I found this recipe and thought, "why not?" So I tried it (everyone had their doubts), but OMG, I'm so glad I did. Everyone RAVED about the cake, including my daughter! My mom keeps reminding me that I need to give her the recipe! Thank you so much for this AMAZING cake!!! I did as other reviewers suggested and soaked the white rice flour in the milk and vanilla beforehand-- what a great tip!

This was AMAZING. My daughter's class had an "Ireland Day" and I brought this-- even all the kiddos (1st grade) at it up!!!

Cranberry Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Fantastic!!! I used Craisins instead of fresh cranberries and they turned out a bit sweet (my daughter loved them!), so next time I will try the regular cranberries. To make the recipe gluten-free, I substituted rice flour for the wheat flour. I also used applesauce instead of the oil to cut fat. Don't leave out the coriander-- in my opinion, it's what makes this recipe so amazing.

Grilled Citrus Tuna

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
I actually made this with salmon because it's what we had, and baked it instead of using the grill. It was amazing! Word to the wise... marinate the fish for several hours. =)

Apple, Pecan, Cranberry, and Avocado Spinach Salad with Balsamic Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
Unbelievably delicious!!! I never would have thought of combining these ingredients in one salad, but it was the best salad we'd ever had. And so healthy too! We used "Our Favorite Balsamic Vinaigrette" from this site for dressing. We will make this again and again!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
WOW! This recipe is fantastic! As other reviewers suggested, I doubled the spices (except for the cayenne-- we don't like spice, so I left that out), rubbed some of the spices under the skin over the breasts, but otherwise followed the recipe as-is. It was done right on time and was tender, juicy, and delicious.

Three Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
My husband and I both love this recipe, but I made quite a few changes. I didn't have chicken broth, so I added 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves to the recipe, chopped into very small pieces (pinto-bean size). I sauteed the onion & bell peppers along with 3 minced garlic cloves over medium-high heat in 2 tablespoons oil, and added the raw chicken when the veggies were tender. When the chicken was done, I added 2 1/2 cups water, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and ONE 15-oz. can of each of the following: diced tomatoes, refried beans (as one reader suggested), navy beans (drained), pinto beans (drained), and light red kidney beans (drained). I brought the whole mixture to a boil, then turned the heat down to low, covered and simmered for 30 minutes. We wouldn't have liked it without the chicken, but now it's one of our favorite soups!

Juicy Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
VERY delicious, perfect balance of different fruit. Everyone loved it! I followed the advice of some readers and used a large can of mandarin oranges instead of a whole orange. I also will use red grapes next time. Great recipe!

Lesley's Valentine Brownies with Raspberry Coulis

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
Okay, I didn't make the brownies, but I have used the sauce as a topping for chocolate mousse. Once the raspberries were melted, I added 1/4 c. sugar and stirred until dissolved. Then I added the cornstarch-juice mixture (although I used water instead of juice), cooked as directed, and added rind. I kept it in the fridge, then spooned it over the mousse before serving. It was to die for!

Hershey's ® Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
This recipe turned out PERFECT, and we all LOVED it! It was even better with raspberry sauce that I made: 10 oz. package frozen raspberries (do not thaw) 1 Tablespoon raspberry juice or water 1 1/2 tsp. cornstarch 1 Tb. orange zest 1/4 c. sugar (more or less to taste) In medium saucepan over med-high heat, cook raspberries for 5-8 minutes, turn down to medium and add sugar. In small bowl combine juice & cornstarch to make a paste, add to raspbery mixture stirring constantly until thickened. Add orange rind, cool. Make ahead of time, keep in fridge, and spoon over mousse when ready to serve. (Adapted from Lesley's Valentine Brownies with Raspberry Couli)

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
This stew is to die for!!! This recipe is a permanent addition to my collection. I changed a few things here and there to suit our own personal taste, but that is all. I cut the potatoes and beef on the Larger side of bite-size, because my husband loves the chunkiness. Thank you Margo!

Gaye's Microwave Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
Fantastic, and very easy! When microwaving, ignore the time and just microwave until the butter is melted. I added way more vanilla than the recipe called for (helps to cover the confectioners' sugar taste). My only trouble is, I end up with little clumps (even after sifting the ingredients to start with) after cooking, so I have to QUICKLY mash it through a mesh strainer.

Cheese and Broccoli Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
I changed this recipe some, partly because I only had one head of broccoli, but mostly to make it WAY lower in fat! I used 1/4 c. butter, 3/4 c. flour, 8 c. water, left out the bouillon, used 2 lb. beef steak instead of chicken (all I had at the time), 1 head of broccoli, 4 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. black pepper, 1 c. non-fat milk, and 2 c. of 2% low-fat sharp Cheddar cheese. I cooked as directed, EXCEPT I mixed the flour with the milk and poured it slowly into the pot at the end. Then I added the butter. We LOVED it, and I could serve it without feeling guilty!

Chicken, Sausage and Zucchini Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
We loved this recipe. The only change I made was to leave out the spaghetti sauce and add just a little (1/3 of a cup or so) tomato sauce instead. Oh, and I also cooked the sausage separately at first, and drained out all the fat I could. Delicious!

Yam and Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
This was fabulous!!! It made a wonderful dessert, and it was so healthy! The very first time I made it someone asked for the recipe. Tip: don't over-boil the yams! Also, I served it with a spoonful of whipped cream on top and everyone liked it.

Fabulous Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2004
This was excellent! I changed the proportions some, for instance the only onion I added was some chopped green onion scattered on top. I also added some cucumber and avocado slices. I didn't expect to like the dressing but gave it a try-- my husband and I BOTH loved it! For a really nice presentation, lay the spinach on plates, put the tomatoes on top, and arrange each topping (eggs, mushrooms, avocado, cucumber slices, etc) in its own pile around the edge of each plate. Sprinkle onions on top. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you Uleta!
