Brown Sugar-Glazed Home-Style Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
I really enjoyed this meatloaf. I'm not a huge fan, but I had a lot of ground beef to use up and wanted to change it up. I love the glaze, but I did add a splash of worestlhetoiauetihtr sauce (ha ha, you know), and I halved it, half the sauce on the bottom and the other half on top (with 20 min. left to bake). When I made it the 2nd time I added some green bell peppers, mushrooms, and finely chopped jalapeño. And I think I used bread crumbs once and oatmeal the other time, both came out fine. Really flavorful, did I mention I loved the glaze?

Peanut Butter and Bran Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
I was impressed at the good reviews, and I read through them for tips (tip: always read at least a few reviews). This recipe uses some really good ingredients, and can easily be made even a little healthier (which I always do: substitute some butter for applesauce, use less refined sugars, and white whole wheat flour). Anyway, I doubt those minor changes made a big difference in the taste, while fairly healthy already, these cookies need a little something. The bran is not overpowering, but I can tell it's there, and it takes away from your typical sweet and peanuty peanut butter cookie. So maybe add a little more peanut butter, a little bit of salt, and/or chocolate chips, and/or cocoa powder. I made a batch without, then added some later, and I'm so glad I did. I'll be working on this recipe, as I do want to use up my bran and I love peanut butter cookies.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
I'm so glad I had an abundance of both blueberries and zucchinis from the farmer's market last summer, otherwise I would have never thought to put these two together, which is a shame, 'cause they are great together! I did make some adjustments though, to make it a little healthier and feel better eating it :) used white whole wheat flour, substituted apple sauce for half the oil, and decreased the sugar a bit. Also, I used a little more blueberries and zucchini, mostly because I didn't want to waste it after I had shredded it and because I like blueberries :)

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
I really enjoyed this recipe, but had to make it a little healthier: instead of a whole cup of oil, I used 1/2 c. applesauce and 1/2 c. oil, cut the sugar down to 1 c. "white" sugar (just less processed natural sugar) & 1/2 C.rapadura (least processed sugar, includes the molasses and nutrients from sugar cane), and I used white whole wheat flour (less dense than red wheat, but still whole wheat!). Very moist and yummy!

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2013
Although they were moist and sweet, they lacked a certain something; maybe some fresh fruit might have perked them up, give them that umph. I used dates for my first batch as well as substituted applesauce for the oil. I'd like to try these again but plan on adding something fresh to it, maybe some grated carrots, apple, or fresh berries...

Easy Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
Very easy. I'm very new to cooking with eggplant so I was scared to try. A few tips that I'll be using next time I make this: cut the slices thinner than imagined, maybe 1/4 inch (originally, I cut them about 1/2 in. thick and it was too thick to cook through nicely) I read other reviews about adding spices and double breading, so I did just that. I had 3 bowls, 1 with egg, 1 with flour and spices (salt, pepper, garlic salt) and the third with bread crumbs and italian seasoning. dipped in egg, then flour, then egg again, and finally, bread crumbs. I'm not sure how tasty it would have been had I not added the spices, because that really did influence the taste...
