Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
Delicious! I halved the salt as others had mentioned, and it was still too salty, although I have no idea how the quantity I had compared to "a bunch," since it was from a friend's garden. I also didn't have lemon juice. Asparagus is a new veggie for us, and both my husband and I enjoyed it.

Sweet and Sour Chicken II

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2012
Omg, this is awesome! The only adjustment I made in the sauce was substituting 2T cornstarch for the 1/4C flour. I stir fried the veggies in peanut oil for a few minutes before adding the sauce, which I prepared in a separate pot. I used yellow bell peppers and added some onion and a few carrots. The sauce is perfect as is ... not to sweet, not too sour. Oh, and I used rice wine vinegar because I had it on hand. I would give it 10 stars if I could!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I was serving my waffles with turkey and gravy and didn't want them sweet, so I cut the sugar in half and omitted the vanilla. For added fiber and nutrition, I used 1C less 1T white whole wheat flour, 1C less 1T white flour, and 2T soy flour. I separated the eggs and beat the whites and folded them in at the end as others suggested. They were very light and delicious, with much the same texture as the Bisquick waffles I loved as a kid. My picky kids preferred the boxed variety, but that might have had to do with cutting the sugar and omitting the vanilla.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2011
Best. Cornbread. Ever. I used whole wheat flour, fat-free milk soured w/lemon juice, and decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup. Moist and delicious; held together very nicely.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Epic. Fail. Maybe my butter was *too* soft, maybe it was the off-brand peanut butter, maybe it was the fat-free milk, I don't know. But the more I beat it, the more it separated. I ended up with a thick peanut butter mass in a milky mess. Looked like oatmeal. Hubby got the bright idea of heating it in the microwave, which accomplished nothing but separating the oil out of it as well. It did reconstitute overnight, and now I'm trying to figure out how to salvage this mess. Complete waste of time and money!
