Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
This is a very sweet and very good banana bread with both a great banana and a great chocolate flavor. I reduced the cinnamon to half, used 1/2 white sugar, 1/2 brown sugar, and substituted wheat flour for 1/4 of the white flour. In addition, I realized I only had 1/2 of the required butter so substituted the other half with vanilla yogurt. My family could not get enough of it. We ate it for dessert!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
This is a wonderful recipe, quick, easy, and makes super fluffy pancakes! I used skim milk which I ran out of and had to substitute almond milk for half of the liquid. I also added 1 tsp vanilla, substituted brown sugar for white, and used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour in place of 1/2 cup of white flour. With this method the batter was a bit too thick so I added more almond milk to thin the batter. My children LOVED these pancakes and so did I!

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
I'm giving these a 4 because I changed the recipe and maybe if followed as written they would have been better, I considered giving them a 3. I added wheat germ and flax seed, substituted apple sauce for oil. I also baked in bar form for a longer time period. They are tasty for such a healthy snack but are not very sweet at all. I think I could have added more dates, or maybe honey to enhance the sweetness enough for my kids to eat them.

Cioppino

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
This recipe is a very good start to a cioppino! I reduced the butter as many others have mentioned and used clam juice, chicken stock, and white wine as my base, no water. In addition, I used spicy marinara sauce in place of the stewed tomatoes, therefore I didn't need to add oregano, basil or thyme but I did add fresh parsley and bay leaves. I also added chopped fennel which gave the stew more complex flavor. I substitued halibut for the cod, I think any firm white fish would do. We had this for Christmas eve dinner with bread and salad and it was wonderful.

Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
This is wonderful and healthy! My 2 and 4 yr old children devour this dish. It is so easy, I make it the night before and then pop it in the oven after work. I have used variations such as more rice, less cheese, added carrots, celery, etc. and it is always good. I have used both store bought rotisserie chicken and canned chicken instead of cooking chicken breast and it is so easy. I have also made it with cheddar. Very good recipe base that is hard to mess up and always delicious!
