Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2014
I've made these a few times, tweaking things as I went, and finally ended up with product that I love! The texture of the original brownie was not to my liking...somewhat mushy. My changes were as follows: 1/2 cup pureed pumpkin instead of the oil; extra TBL of cocoa powder; no salt; extra tsp of vanilla; 2/3 cup sugar instead of 3/4 cup; 1 tsp of cinnamon; 1 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp of baking soda. I did not use the coffee or chocolate chips. The result is a cake-like brownie with a delicious chocolatey flavor, and only about 75 calories a piece!

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I only gave this 4 stars, because after making it as written, I found it too peppery and otherwise kind of lacking something. I made it a 2nd time with some tweaks and then a 3rd time with some more tweaks and found the perfect balance of cheese and seasoning. My changes were: 1. 1/2 tsp of black pepper (instead of 1 tsp); 2. add 1/2 tsp of salt; 3. add 1 tsp of onion powder; 4. add 1 tsp of paprika; and 5. reduce American cheese to 4 oz and Velveeta to 4 oz and add 8 oz of Cheddar cheese. I was making this for a party, so I trippled the recipe, completely cooked the noodles and put everything in a crockpot on low for one hour and on warm the rest of the time. I left out the bread crumbs and did not use all of the sauce, but if I had par cooked the noodles and baked it in the oven, I think I would have used all of the sauce, since some of it would have been absorbed by the noodles during cooking. I was absolutely amazed by the results! This is probably the best mac and cheese I have ever eaten, although it is VERY rich. Definitely best as a side dish. It got lots of compliments and I passed along the recipe. I will definitely make this again and try baking it in the oven!

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
I love this recipe! I've made it twice now. Like other reviewers, I added onion and doubled the sauce recipe. I skipped browning the chops. I started the sauce in a cast iron skillet, added the chops, covered with foil and then baked in the oven. It's delicious and easy!

Lemon-Cream Cheese Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
AMAZING! I could not stop eating these! Instead of using the pudding mix (sorry Jello), I used lemon oil (used for making candy). I also added lemon oil to the frosting. I cannot get over how good these were! I will definitely make this again!

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Great recipe idea! I wasn't able to follow the recipe exactly, because I didn't have all ingredients on hand, but it turned out really well. I used nonfat yogurt instead of mayo, 2 cans of tuna and cooked them on my george foreman grill. I will definitely make this again and try different flavor combinations. Healthy, super easy and budget friendly!

Feta Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
I have also been making my own version of this for years. I put butter, minced garlic and fresh cherry tomatoes (halved) from my garden in the pan. Cook for a few minutes until the tomatoes start to soften, and then add the eggs. When the eggs are almost done, I add fresh basil from my garden and feta cheese. I usually eat it with english muffins or biscuits. It's my favorite summer breakfast. A great combination of flavors!!!
