White Yeast Loaves

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2015
I have made this power the recipe and it's fabulous. Today i added 3 T ground golden flax seed and 1/2 cup teff flour for a little nutrition, and it's fabulous. I always use AP flour because that's what I have. Note for high altitude basers: baking at over a mile high, you don't knead add long as recipes say. It toughens the bread. Just knead until it is elastic and smooth, however long that takes. A few minutes.

Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
First: too sweet. Next time I'll use an evaporated milk recipe for the pie. Did use pure maple syrup instead of flavoring, that probably didn't help. Second: a reviewer mentioned she wished she had put more butter in the topping. So I added a tablespoon. But, I should have doubled the butter. The topping didn't melt/cook-- it mostly stayed the same powder it started out as. Third: it's still good, didn't hear any complaints, and it was eaten very quickly. Used a walnut pie shell from this site; that was awesome.

Coconut Pecan Frosting I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2014
Its ok. Good. I'm just used to the evaporated milk recipe and this taste too sweet to me. Or maybe candy-like as another reviewer said. Because of the reviews saying the flavor was less nuanced than the other recipe, I added a few drops of almond extract and maple extract. Figured that would be to little to taste but might help. Also, I made a double batch because this recipe makes less than the other, and we like lots of coconut pecan frosting.

Savory Quinoa Muffins (Gluten-Free)

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
A good concept, but much too 'savory.' Used 3 large eggs and I think I got the texture right for the recipe. It made 1 dozen, loosely spooned into cups. You can tell by the recipe that this is not a batter. They were somewhat greasy. I suspect I will try it again, because it is a good idea, easy, and something new for a quick breakfast. Will not add Worcester sauce at all. Did not use garlic and won't use any of the spices listed. Will make more like baby quiches. I think the quinoa will make baby quiches have enough texture and chew to be filling. Will mix 3 eggs and maybe a cup of milk into the quinoa, spinach and cheese, then put into parchment muffin cups. I'm thinking the bacon didn't do much for it, so unless I have some just waiting around bored, I'll probably leave that out also. Anyway, I still think this is a good idea and could be excellent once adjusted to my tastebuds. This recipe as written is too 'savory' for any time of day, especially breakfast. I took pictures and will try to upload them. If it works, one photo is before baking, and one after.

Zippy Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2014
I mostly followed this. Except I whisked the ingredients in the bottom of a crockpot, added another half cup water, tossed in some frozen boneless skinless chicken pieces and refrigerated overnight. Cooked all day on low. Used a little arrowroot to thicken, adding another half cup of water in the process. My family believes they would be happiest if I made this 4 days a week for the rest of their lives. Impossible to add a photo because there is nothing left. I am going to used this for a OAMC recipe. Will work great. I like being popular.

Chicken with Sausage and Dried Fruit

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
This was really good. I didn't measure the stored for because the reason I made this recipe was to use up a bunch of dried tropical fruits. So itwas apples, dates, mango, kiwi, etc. I'd say it was about 4 cups. I had soaked it overnight in water (or was really dry and hard.) I included the juice from that and also added enough broth to just cover the food in the cockpot. I'd say that was important; we appreciated enough broth to juice up the rice and toppings. I didn'thave smoked sausage so i used turkey breakfast sausage and added a drop off smoke seasoning. I never did decide if the sausage belonged in it or not. Next time, I'll leave out. But no one complained Anyway, very good. With some very few modifications this will make an amazing sweet and sour pork or chicken dish. That, I believe, will be 5 stars.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2014
Delicious. Did not peel the apples. Easy to make gluten free. (Use sorghum flour or a GF flour mix.) It may have been slightly too sweet but I used tart apples so it was perfect. Also added a touch of nutmeg but it probably made no difference. But next time in going to make it with tapioca granules on the apples instead of flour. Just personal legends but I didn't think about it until it was too late.

Slow Cooker Green Chile Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
Didn't have a pork roast handy so I used 10 oz of chorizo and added diced potatoes. Used butternut squash instead of yams. What a great recipe.

Green Chili Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
A recipe I have always loved but lost track of. Gluten free! Tonight I had some corn tortillas and cooked ground beef to use up, so I added those to the layers. I had to double the egg/milk mixture. I think my old recipe had more milk with the eggs.

Cheesy Tortillas

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
What's not to love? Fast food for starving swimmers. They loved it. Robards a van of black beans and added with the corn and cheese.

Be Prepared Five-Bean Soup Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I put my beans in a 1 1/2 pint canning jar, add the seasonings right on top, put a lid on it, and store it in the pantry. After dumping the mix in the crockpot, I add 3 jars of water per jar of mix. (Takes 2 for our medium-sized family.) I buy high-end beans at the health food store so they are already triple-washed. I don't pay attention to the bean mix in the recipe, use whatever beans I want, and go for some variety so its pretty in the jars. (Easy gifts, too.) I use vegeterian boullion and skip the bacon bits so I'm not limited when feeding vegeterians. The thing I like most about this is it is an instant meal. With a day of appointments ahead of you, all you have to do is throw the jar or two of beans and seasoning in the crockpot, add a few jars of water, a can of timatoes, and go. Come home to a great aroma and good flavor. This is a magic recipe. For one thing, I always heard you cannot put salt in beans before they are cooked, but this has salt & bouillon, but it works. The taste is great- good by itself, but not overpowering if you want to flavor it differently.

Sausage and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I'm supposed to give this 6 stars out of 5, to quote the kids. Another quote: "This stuff is the bomb." Easy, feeds a lot of teens. I kind of doubled the recipe, except I didn't have double the cheese or sausage. Also, I diced a couple baked potatoes in there instead of some of the bread. I also added a little red pepper flakes for some zip. I knew my sausage was very mild so added some poultry seasoning when I was cooking it in the microwave. Anyway, obviously not a picky recipe but very good & easy.

Christmas Morning Oatmeal

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2007
It burned my crockpot past repair. Perhaps if the sauce was mixed in before cooking it would have been allright. The flavor was great, and it was easy. It was popular with the guys. They all thought it was great. Flavorful, sweet. I didn't have enough nutmeg so used 1/2 nutmeg and made up the spices with a bit of coriander & mostly pumpkin pie seasoning. I don't think it is critical as long as you get enough spices in it.

Tiger Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
Too sweet for me, but a hit with the troops. After all the comments about the sweetness, I used 2 squares (2 oz) of unsweetened chocolate instead of the semi-sweet chips. I also used a rounded cup of cereal. After making 2 pans of mini-muffins in paper, I had some left over so I just dropped it by spoonfuls on waxed paper. It held its shape fine, and that's how I'll do it next time. They look kind of lumpy like turtle candy. Anyway, I had some Reese's mini-chips, and I thought that would go with the peanut butter and chocolate, so I put about 1/8 a cup in the last half of the batch. The troops like it both ways about the same. These are for christmas tins so we'll frost a squiggle in 2 different colors, probably melted butterscotch chips for the ones with the Reeses, and dark chocolate for the others. Anyway, a popular and fast filler for candy tins. Thanks!

Stuffed Pepper Soup IV

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
OMG, this is so good. I didn't really measure much, just used it as a guide... I had no idea you could make something so simple that tastes so great. Truly just like stuffed bell peppers. It wasn't that filling, and I added more rice as I was eating it, but truthfully the amount of rice in the recipe is just right. Thanks for posting this!
