Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
Excellent recipe w/some tweaking. I used other reviewer's suggestions and used much less sugar, 1 cup and a couple tablespoons. I also used half white, half whole wheat flour; a 15 oz can of pumpkin; 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil and I added a cup of chopped walnuts and DID NOT chop the cranberries, as I think it lessens the tartness. Exellent muffins, VERY moist.

Grilled Whole Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I have grilled our Thanksgiving turkey for the last three years and our bird will never go in the oven again. This recipe is great to get you started; I suggest stuffing the cavity with celery & onion and using salt and pepper to flavor the bird in addition to the other seasonings. I also loosely covered the breast for the first two hours of cooking to keep it moist and took the foil off for the last hour. I cooked a 15 pounder and it took about 3 1/2 hours on the grill. Let the bird sit for 30 minutes before you carve it and you will have meat that will knock your socks off! **Note that the layer of meat below the skin will be pink, some people think the meat is not done but it's what happens when you use the grill!

Chocolate Zucchini Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
FAN-TAS-TIC. I added a 1/4 cup more sugar (based on some reviews stating it was "bitter"), used 1/2 white 1/2 brown sugar, half whole wheat flour and 1/2 applesauce 1/2 oil. Also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla. What I especially love is that this just tastes like a truly decadent chocolate cake, not a cake with less oil AND vegetables! I also like that it doesn't have a strong spice flavor, as many zucchini cake recipes (containing cloves, etc.) tend to do. Perfect with a cream cheese frosting for my son's 2nd birthday!

Fat Free Tartar Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
I know the recipe is fab as written; but I had to make adjustments based on what I had. I used dill reslish, some onion powder and a little sugar to soften the blow of the dill relish. I was actually shocked at how good it tasted. Thanks for the recipe.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I met with my personal trainer Monday and we discussed two things: my sweet tooth and the need to incorporate more protein in my diet. Yay, this sweet treat does both! I upped the cocoa to 1/3 cup as others suggested and I added chopped walnuts to the top. There's still plenty of sugar in this brownie, but it tasted great and takes care of the sweet craving while providing more nutritional value than a typical brownie! Thanks for the recipe. My three kids love them, also!

Zucchini-Coconut Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Thank you for a GREAT recipe! Looking for another recipe to use up the zucchini from my garden I gave this one a try. I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/4 cup greek yogurt in place of the margarine. I didn't have dates, so I used dried cranberries and I added 3/4 cup chocolate chips! Fabulous! I did NOT make the icing, the chocolate chips gave it the additional kick needed. I made a triple batch the first day and I'll be making more. Cut them and they freeze well.

Buster Bar Ice Cream Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Fantabulous! Wow! I didn't change a thing. The fudge is fantastic and I will make the fudge to put on ice cream instead of buying the awful stuff from the store. I put a layer of whipped cream over the fudge after the fudge layer chilled and sprinkled extra cookie crumbs on top. Thank you for this amazing recipe. You will NEVER buy a store bought ice cream cake after you have this.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2011
I look forward to autumn so I can make this soup! I use 1/2 the amount of cream cheese and real chicken broth. This is a wonderful recipe and the soup freezes and reheats wonderfully.

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
Simple and delicious! I 1/3 cup brown and 1/3 cup white sugar, the peaches were fresh and super sweet so 2/3 cup was plenty. Wonderful!

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
I need to double this recipe next time, as it's fabulous and the entire family eats it with no complaints. I didn't change a thing. Baked it in an enameled cast iron roasting pan at 450 degrees for the entire time and it browned beautifully.

Captain Crunch Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
This would be a 5 star recipe, but I had to alter the recipe after reading the reviews and with the changes I made our family gives this 5 stars. I used half captain crunch and half corn flakes and used the food processor to make them very fine. I added 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and a pinch of salt. I dipped the chicken in egg before I rolled it in the cereal and seasoning mixture. I bake this on an elevated rack so the bottoms don't get soggy. I also made a honey mustard dipping sauce from this sight and my husband says "it's too good!"

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I've made this three times and I suggest you DO NOT use 4 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder; use 3 teaspoons. I did some research and looked at other recipes and most recipes that don't use self-rising flour call for 1 teaspoon of baking powder for every 1 cup of flour. When I used 4 1/2 teaspoons the bread had a very distinct, bitter aftertaste. This is a great bread with the baking powder modification. Also, I pour 2 Tablespoons of melted butter on top 10 minutes before it's done baking.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
This is a great recipe the entire family enjoyed. I used leftover chicken, pork and turkey kielbasa. I also added an extra green pepper and a yellow pepper, in addition to another small can of diced tomatoes. The seasonings were perfect, although I didn't use the cayenne. Added 1 1/2 cups of instant brown rice the last hour in the crockpot. Thank you for a fantastic recipe.

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
These were wonderful, they were surprisingly light and fluffy. I used whole wheat and oat flour instead of the all-purpose. I also added cinnamon and vanilla, as many other reviewers have. My kids requested chocolate chips instead of blueberries -- these pancakes were a big hit! I doubled the batch and froze the extras.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Excellent. A true gourmet carrot cake, dense, delicious and full of flavor. I did not make major changes, only alterations to make it a little more healthy (save a few fat grams when you're eating something so decadent). I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and replaced half the oil w/unsweetened applesauce. I also threw in some unsweetened coconut. The "Cream Cheese Frosting II" from this sight was perfect to frost the cake.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Excellent! We love these waffles and I won't search any longer for a healthy waffle recipe--this is it. I used quick oats instead of wheat germ and no white flour, also added cinnamon. I used basic whole wheat flour, not pastry flour, and they turned out great.

Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
"Super Triple Awesome All Stars" is what one of my sons had to say about this simple recipe. My 8 year old made it with my guidance and we all enjoyed it. We used more nuts than called for and next time we'll add raisins. I used bread dough, as it's what we had.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
These were good, but we didn't think they were amazing. Next time I will either try another recipe; if I use this one I will use less vanilla....the vanilla was too prominent. Like many others, I mixed the chocolate chips into the dough and sprinkled some on top.

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Very good! I had left over taco meat so I used that with great results. I added more green pepper and used cooked quinoa instead of rice (no rice on hand). I also used salsa instead of chili sauce. This recipe is versatile and can easily be adjusted to suit a family's tastes.

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
We loved this! I always alter recipes to be a little more healthy, thus I used whole wheat penne, chicken sausage, 1/2 the amount of mozzarella and cottage cheese instead of ricotta. One tip I picked up from another recipe is to blend an egg into the cottage cheese (used my stick blender for this) and I also added a box of frozen spinach (defrosted with water pushed out). I sprinkled the italian seasoning on top. Plenty of food, so the second half is in the freezer for another night.
