Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2014
This is the yummiest, creamiest oatmeal I've ever had. I made this for a church breakfast and reduced to about 1/3 amount of sugar so people could sweeten to taste. I also browned some crushed pecans in butter and sprinkled them on top, and called it "Butter Pecan" because butterscotch oatmeal doesn't sound healthy to me. It was plenty sweet and everyone loved it as-is, even going back for seconds! I am using the same base today for the church breakfast and will add dried cranberries and walnuts.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
I didn't have any zucchini but did have a big, light-green mystery squash, as long as my arm. It was not as moist as zucchini, but I pulsed it in the food processor and added the quantity specified. I did add walnuts. Before putting it in the oven, I also topped the bread with fresh, toasted coconut pulp that I happened to have in the fridge, left over from making coconut milk. So the top was crunchy-coconuty! We all loved it and I will make it again, maybe trying to substitute with some whole wheat flour.

Curry Pineapple Fried Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
Loved this dish, although I wish it had called for something green, or that I had thought of it. That's the only reason I didn't give it a 5. Next time I'll add fresh cilantro on top, or as a last minute stir-in. I served it with a lime wedge on each plate. Can't wait to try it with shrimp!

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
The flavor was fine, but I don't think I'll use this recipe again. I think I'll stick with marinating and grilling instead of slow-cooking.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Wonderful! I used fresh basil and mint from the garden, and one 10 oz bag of spinach that I placed in a bowl and cut up with scissors. We all loved it! I am VERY CAREFUL to avoid pine nuts imported from China, after having come down with a nasty condition called "pine mouth" last year.

Thirty Minute Meal

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
This was great the first time I made it. But this time used 2 bags of fine shredded cabbage, skipped the water, added a can of diced tomatoes, and a can of chopped green chiles. Served with a side of shredded cheese and plain yogurt (used like sour cream), and it was a huge hit - no leftovers!

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Great results. Based on other reviews, I: 1) dissolved the honey in the warm water before adding the yeast, 2) let the dough rise a second time after spreading it on the pizza pans. I pre-baked the crusts before adding toppings. Tried to spread the dough thin enough for two 11" "thin crusts" but couldn't quite make it. Used "Easy Pizza Sauce I" from this site, for a simple and healthy pizza (if you use that sauce, make sure to reduce the amount of water).

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Everything was great except for the amount of water. I wish the author could edit the recipe for those of who get in a hurry and don't read the reviews! I simmered mine sauce for a while to reduce it.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
My whole family loved this. I had to get the Muenster cheese at the deli by weight, and guesstimated a pound. Turned out that 3 cups shredded and lightly packed was around 10 oz. I kept the onions tender-crisp, and put the filling into a pre-baked pie crust. It was fabulous, and we loved biting into the crispy onions.

Spicy Red Bell Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
I was in a hurry so I used the food processor and chopped each vegetable. When I got to the point of cooling the soup in order to blend it, we were all starved so we ate it as-is. It was fantastic. I loved the flavor combination. I will definitely save this as a recipe for when we have guests!

Quick and Easy 20-Minute Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
This tastes a lot like the canned posole I buy in the Mexican markets. It was quick, easy and delicious. My kids asked that I add "med" chilis next time instead of "mild." This recipe is definitely a "keeper." UPDATE: Today I used a pork loin cut into pieces instead of the chicken (I still used chicken broth). It was fabulous. I also use two cans of chilis.
