Orange Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Great healthy recipe! I made them alongside the Sunday Morning Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes. I think that overall the lemon ones were the family favorite, but nobody was turning their nose up at these, though! I added a handful of dried cranberries. They taste wonderful both with the orange marmalade to top or with light syrup.

Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Something was off about them. Maybe a different type of apple is needed. I used a crisp, tart variety.

Sunday Morning Lemon Poppy Seed Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Seriously perfect. I looove lemon flavored anything, and these pancakes hit the spot! I doubled the recipe, used the juice of one whole lemon and the zest of 2 whole lemons. I tried them with powdered sugar, honey, and light syrup (each separately). You can't go wrong with any of them. Super recipe!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
These brownies obviously aren't as delicious as your full-fat regular brownie, but for what they are, they taste delicious! I made these for Sunday School because of a need to accommodate a nut allergy and gluten intolerance, and all of the kids loved them! I made a double batch in a 9x13 pan. I needed to bake them for over 40 minutes. Other than that, I followed the recipe. Great idea!

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
The only changes I made was to use a standard size muffin tin (the recipe yielded 16 muffins and they were done in 20 minutes- I used a dark nonstick pan at 350 degrees), halve the amount of cinnamon, and use fresh chopped strawberries instead of frozen. I thought the muffins turned out great! Very moist, not too sweet, and a healthy alternative to cookies for my youngest to share in the church nursery tomorrow.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
I would give these 5 stars, but my husband and kids didn't particularly care for them. Oh well, more for me! I used light margarine, in the amount called for, 2 pkgs of cooked from frozen chopped spinach, and reduced fat mozzarella cheese. I went back and read reviews after I popped them in the oven, and decided that garlic and parmesan cheese sounded great, so I sprinkled some garlic powder and parmesan cheese on top after they had been baking for about 10 minutes. Yum! They're great warmed up the next day, too!!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Great recipe! I didn't have any wheat germ, so I subbed the same amount of finely crushed bran flakes. I also used 1/2 all purpose flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour. I felt that the bars would have been far too thin if I would have spread them over the entire 9x13 pan, so I left a couple of inches of space in order to make thicker bars. They were very sweet, so I could see cutting back slightly on the brown sugar next time. They stayed very moist and chewy when I stored them in a ziploc bag.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I'd give this 4.5 stars. Not quite perfect, but very good. They were different from the Toll House recipe that I usually use- not quite as chewy and moist, but these were still delicious, and they look very nice. I used vanilla pudding, and am curious to see how they turn out with chocolate or butterscotch pudding. I made these over the weekend again, but made a few changes. I used butterscotch pudding mix, 1 Tbsp of vanilla, egg beaters instead of the eggs, 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 all purpose flour, and light (yes, the kind that says not to use for baking!) margarine instead of butter. I use this type of margarine for baking frequently, but have NEVER had the incredible results that I got this time around. Those cookies did not taste "healthy" at all! I am thrilled with the results!!

Orange Cilantro Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I only gave this a 3 because my husband liked the flavor. Despite adding extra broth and simmering for one hour, the rice came out crunchy. What a disappointment.

Joe's Shamrock Shake

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
I made this for the kids and tasted it. It's been a long time since I've had a Shamrock shake, but it tastes pretty similar to what I remember. I topped the kids' with a dollop of Cool Whip and some mini chocolate chips. They loved it!

Broccoli Cheese Soup III

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly as written (except I used 1 lb of frozen broccoli instead of fresh), tasted it, and then added some salt (I used low sodium broth and soup), pepper, cayenne pepper and oregano. Perfect! I planned ahead knowing that I wanted a thicker soup and let the base simmer for about an hour before I added 2 C of cheese, and then simmered for another 10 minutes. It was the perfect consistency. I will definitely be making this again...it was so easy, there's no point in making it from a mix!!

Yum! I just made these for St. Patty's Day. Tried one fresh from the oven, and it's perfect! I made them exactly as the recipe states.

Orange Slice Cookies II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I have never greased a cookie sheet to bake cookies before, so I chose to use parchment paper instead. The first batch of cookies did spread quite a bit, so I added more flour. The second batch turned out a little better. I also rolled the cut up slices of orange candy in flour to keep them from sticking. It worked well. They aren't very pretty, but so chewy and a nice change from the usual. They do seem to taste better the next day.

Cheesy Beef Spirals

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
2 lb of beef sounded like a lot, so I only used 1 lb, and increased the pasta (I used whole wheat penne) to 3 heaping cups. The sauce covered perfectly. I also only used about 1 1/2 C of the mozzarella cheese. I served it with steamed broccoli and ended up mixing the leftovers together. Next time I may just add the broccoli to the casserole. The kids loved it, and my husband and I liked it well enough to keep it in rotation.

Super Bowl Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
I subbed 1.2 lb of ground turkey, 2% shredded cheddar cheese, and baked in a 9x13 pan before I cut with a pizza cutter and served on dinner rolls. They went over very well when I served them for dinner and when I took them to a Super Bowl party.

Guinness® Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
I, too, used light margarine and the milk/lemon juice in lieu of buttermilk. I mixed all the ingredients, put it in the pan in the fridge for a few hours while I ran errands and then came home, topped with oats and baked for an hour without letting it cool (the kids were getting hungry!). Sooo good! This recipe is a keeper!

Gluten Free Ginger-Honey Crunch

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
I used light margarine, ginger, all Rice Chex, slightly less than 1 C of coconut (thought about eliminating it altogether, but glad that I didn't), and 1/2 C each of dried cranberries and dried pineapple. Thinking about adding slightly less almonds the next time I make it. It has a very good Asian flavor. I made it for a road trip, and everyone that I shared it with loved it, too...it's one of my favorite recipes!
