Coconut Flax Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
This recipe was a great starting point for making delicious healthy bars. Instead of butter, I used Sunbutter. Instead of sugar I used Stevia (2 teaspoons) Instead of corn syrup, I used honey. Instead of ground coconut, gluten and oats, I used homemade muesli. Instead of wheat flour, I used coconut flour (2 tablespoons). Instead of soy nuts, I used a mixture of crushed hazelnuts and almonds. Instead of all flax seed, I used half flax seeds and half chia seeds. Instead of apple juice, I used fresh squeezed orange juice. The whole family thought they were delicious.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
I was looking for a vegetable recipe that my children would eat. They both ate this dish without complaining. I am very pleased. I fried the bacon until it was crispy and put the crumbled pieces on top of the dish so the children could appreciate the bacon better.

Curried Celery-Apple Soup with Shiitake

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
I think this recipe is missing a couple of things. One, it is soup that is supposed to serve 10, but it only calls for 1 1/4 cup water. With the miso, the salt, and all the spices, it turns out entirely to salty and spicy and doesn't make much. Two, after adding several cups of water to the mixture which took care of the strong taste of seasonings, it was lacking substance. It tasted like well seasoned water. I ended up grabbing whatever vegetables I could find in the refrigerator and adding them to this soup. I added two cups of sweet potatoes, 1 potato, chopped carrots, rice, etc. After all that, it was worth eating and had nice flavors.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
There wasn't much to this muffin. If you like the taste of flour with a bit of nutmeg, these were fine, but if you like food with flavor and substance, make something else.

Avocado Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Really easy to make and tasted great. For me it is new way to enjoy avocado and the avocado texture really compliments the mash eggs. I forgot to put salt and pepper in mine and still it was delicious. I served it in a lettuce wrap instead of with bread. I also used Branston Pickle Relish (English) instead of regular pickle relish.

Yakisoba Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
Smelled really good while cooking it. I simmered it for 20 min to evaporate some of the liquid. It made a little more than 2 cups of sauce. I only used about a 1/2 cup of the sauce with three packages of store bought yakisoba noodles. I also used 1 package of the seasoning that came with the noodles. The result was that it tasted better than the yakisoba at our local Japanese restaurant. I gave the recipe 4 stars for two reasons: 1) because I was unsure how much of the sauce to use and if I had used all of it, my dish would have been very wet and 2) because I had to use the package of seasoning to get the yakisoba perfect.

Cry Babies II

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
This is a keeper. I was looking for a recipe that called for a lot of molasses since I had a lot to use up and was happy to find this, especially when I realized that it didn't call for eggs because I didn't have any. I also didn't have any ground ginger so I used juice from fresh ginger. I also only used 3 cups of chocolate chips. The family loved it, even my husband who rarely wants any cookie unless it is a chocolate chip cookie. He said that if he had had a glass of milk (which we were out of) he would hardly have noticed it wasn't a regular chocolate chip cookie. I loved having something different for a change, so it was a win-win.

Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Recipe base is very good. I say this because I changed a few things and still got good rolls. Instead of potatoes, I used left over 'Cheesy Polenta' which is a recipe from this site. I used all wheat flour and used butter instead of shortening. We loved eating them with raw honey and butter. No one could taste cheesy polenta. A long time ago I made this recipe with potatoes and they were just as good.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
I bought some rice pudding at a farmer's market recently and enjoyed it so much that I immediately came home and looked up this recipe. When I made it, it turned out almost exactly like the pudding at the farmer's market. I made some changes based on others' review: I reduced sugar to 1/4 cup and added it after the rice mixture was at a desired thickness, I also stirred some rice mixture to the egg mixture before I poured the egg mixture into the pot. I also eliminated the butter because the farmer's market pudding didn't include butter. Recipe was creamy and delicious. I made it a second time and forgot the vanilla and it was still just as delicious.

Italian Sausage Soup with Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
This soup was absolutely delicious. My family gobbled it down. The only changes I made were: I did not skin the tomatoes and nobody including myself noticed while we were eating it. I used an entire 20 ounce package of tortellini. The whole family appreciated this because we all got plenty of tortellini. I am already planning on making this again.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
These cookies were very good and tasted like brownies. I followed the recipe exactly except for putting two tablespoons of cherry juice in the batter which help the texture. As much as I liked the cookies, there was not much cherry flavor. I think next time I will chop up cherries and put them in the cookie batter.

Individual Beef Wellingtons

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
My family really like these and the children liked helping to make them. We made mini Wellingtons for appetizers. Using a lot of the suggestions from the reviews, here is what I did: I cut the beef into 1-inch cubes and then browned them in a pan for about a minute. For the vegetable mixture, I used brandy instead of sherry, shallots instead of onions and frozen Shiitake mushrooms (thawed with excess water squeezed out) instead of fresh mushrooms. I also added two garlic cloves. I put all the vegetables including some brandy into the blender and made a paste then sauteed it with butter, rest of the brandy, about two tablespoons of heavy cream, and a couple of squirts of Worcestershire sauce. When wrapping the beef, I cut small squares of pastry for the one-inch cubes of beef and added a small swiss cheese slice to each one along with the vegetable paste. I first baked a couple in the toaster oven before I assembled the rest to see how they tasted. That is when I realized they needed salt. After I added about 1/8 teaspoon of salt to the vegetable paste, I baked the rest in the oven. They looked great and tasted delicious.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
These brownies came out absolutely perfect. I was cautiously optimistic when I saw how much sugar the recipe called for but I followed the recipe exactly and they came out better than any other recipe I have ever tried. I will be using this recipe from now on.

The Old Boy's Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
This pie was very good and easy to make. I used a streusal topping. As soon as my daughter had one bite, she said that this is going to be her favorite pie now.

Bev's Chocolate Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This pie came out great even though I didn't follow the directions very well. I mixed all the ingredients in a bowl and not on the stove so they didn't get any heat. Then I put the mixture in the refrigerator for a couple of hours because I didn't have time to finish the pie. Later, I baked it for more than an hour and it was still bubbling. Since I had to leave the house before it was done, I turned off the stove and left the pie in the oven hoping that it would thicken, because otherwise my husband's birthday pie would be a flop. About 1 1/2 hours later, I took the pie out of oven and had it for dessert. It was great. Somehow, the bottom of the pie carmelize adding a lovely texture and flavor to the pie and the crust wasn't even burnt. I will try making this pie two more times - once to make it the right way and a second time to try to duplicate my first attempt.
