Very Berry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
Very hardy muffin with a wonderful fresh-fruit zing! Not overly sweet, either, which is fine by us. I selected this recipe specifically for the oatmeal (filling, good fiber) and made them with raspberries instead of blueberries. The muffins vanished in two days, a sure sign this recipe is a keeper!

Beer Cake I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
This recipe is sooo versatile! I made it with pumpkin spice pudding and cranberry lambic beer, both of which are in season right now in New Hampshire. I also tossed in a cup of chopped frozen cranberries. Delicious!

Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
I made this over the weekend. DBF said, "Now when I ask for potato salad, THIS is the recipe I want." Enough said! This recipe delivers all it promises and more. I can't wait to make it again!

Lemon Crisps

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
These are very easy, delicious cookies. I whipped up a batch using the recipe as written and they turned out fantastic. I found the dough became more workable when I let it rest a minute following the addition of the melted butter. Once the butter was worked in, I added the egg. The batter was easy to work with and I'm thinking this recipe might lend itself to other flavors, such as orange or cherry. After looking at the reviews, I might try some of the tweaks suggested; I particularly like the one for using lemon juice.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
I'm happy to add my 5 Stars to this recipe! Usually anything with oatmeal or bananas gets the thumbs down at my house. Not these muffins! They vanished in less than 24 hours. Very subtle "healthy" flavoring and big blueberry taste. Thanks for this keeper!

Frosted Rhubarb Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
What a fantastic way to use rhubarb! I made these last night and froze them unfrosted for Father's Day. They're so good without frosting, cakey and sweet-tart. The coconut surprised me but it works very well in the cookie. I bought some more rhubarb today to make some more!

Salmon and Shrimp Cakes from Chef Bubba

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
What an intriguing and delicious way to present salmon! We loved these. I used a can of tiny shrimp (rinsed) instead of mincing larger shrimp and seasoned breadcrumb because that's what I had. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. I really appreciate that the cakes are baked and not fried. Thanks, Bubba!

Apricot Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
Just what I needed for a white layer cake that I filled with apricot/passion fruit preserves. I subbed in these preserves and omitted the pecans. This topped the cake perfectly, a keeper for sure!

Easy Platz (Coffee Cake)

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2007
Really easy and delicious coffee cake! Following the advice of previous reviewers, I used a 9x9 inch glass baking dish and starting testing for doneness at 45 minutes (my oven is fluky so baking is an adventure). I've used this recipe with blackberries and blueberries with excellent results each time. As is my habit, I also substituted one cup of Splenda for the sugar, a cup of whole wheat flour for one of the cups of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup eggBeaters for the eggs, and one stick of light butter for the margarine.

Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
Sometimes the simple pleasures are best! This is a wonderful "starter" muffin recipe or you can enjoy as is. I fiddled with the ingredients (can't help myself) to skinny it down and these muffins were absolutely as wonderful as the full-fat version. I really appreciate that these muffins aren't the cakey kind you can buy anywhere. Thanks for an excellent recipe!

Sweeter Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2007
Simple and delicious! Good by themselves, better with sauces, jellies, or gravies. These work for both sweet and savory dishes! They also baked up nicely with eggBeaters, Splenda, 1% lowfat milk and unsweetened applesauce substitutes for the full-fat ingredients. A true winner!

Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
What a find! I used an oat bran pita bread instead of the pizza dough and pre-cooked/mashed squash in place of the sliced squash. Once they came out of the oven, we topped with more diced veggies. Excellent springboard for creative lunches!!!

Deer Meat

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
Very nice. We had some leftover grilled venison steak so I fixed this recipe (excluding the browning steps). We thought it was delicious.

Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
Excellent! I had a ton of clementines and a new juicer to play with, so I made these. They're a huge hit!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
What a lovely, versatile recipe! I added red peppers and tomatoes and served on tortillas with salsa, sour cream and shredded cheese. I can imagine adding all kinds of fruits and veggies or just enjoying as is. Definitely a keeper!

Banana Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Another rave review. This banana bread was a big hit with our Sailor who is home on leave. We won't have to worry about whether or not to freeze leftovers. Very flavorful. I used half brown sugar and half Splenda, egg substitute, and white whole wheat flour. Added the vanilla and cinnamon suggested by other reviewers. This bread smells heavenly when it's baking.
