Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2004
This is a nice way to prepare squash. I reduced the butter to 2 tsp and added a little more onion and a clove of garlic to the cooking water during the last 4 minutes of boiling. I would reduce the milk next time to about 1/8 cup. I used 1.5 lb of yellow squash.

Holiday Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
We love this recipe! After perusing many of the reviews, I made some modifications to increase the recipe's "healthy factor." Here is my ingredient list: 2c white flour, 2c whole wheat flour, 2c sugar, 2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp allspice, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cloves, 1/4c canola oil, 3/4c unsweetened applesauce, 3/4c water, 4 eggs, 15 oz can pumpkin puree. Combine the dry ingredients, blend in the wet ingredients, then bake. Yummy and I feel good about giving it to my toddler.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2003
Made this quiche for a baby shower I was hosting. The Mama-to-Be just emailed me asking for the recipe because she just loved it so much!!! I followed the recipe exactly and had no problems. I would wait for it to cool completely before slicing though.

Apple Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2005
Okay, but won't be making again. I froze the banana with the peel still on--perhaps peeling and then freezing is better, considering how difficult it is to get the peel off (should I have known that??). Mixing 8 oz of milk with 1 1/2 bananas of medium ripeness is better and easier to make. Bananas need not be frozen.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
100% kid (and mom) approved! These were fantastic, and the recipe holds up incredibly well to some easy healthy changes. I used 3/4 cup natural applesauce and 1/4 cup canola oil; used only 1 1/2 cups sugar (which I will further reduce next time to probably only 1 cup); and used 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, and 1 cup oat flour (made by grinding oats in my food processor). I used 2 cups frozen blueberries and didn't waste time rinsing them - some of the muffins were blue in color but that was kind of fun for the kids and still yummy. Everything else was as specified. The recipe doubles incredibly well. I filled muffin tins to the very top and got 30 muffins from this (when I doubled the recipe).

Chicken Cordon Bleu-ish Grilled Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Good recipe, easy to make. I believe I'll cut the chicken into strips next time. I recommend using high-quality sliced deli ham. We used sliced sourdough bread and that worked well.

Lime-Berry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Exceptional!! Salads aren't normally a mainstay for dinner in our family - but I believe our customs are about to change based on the "delicious-ness" of this salad. All the components of the salad worked in such perfect harmony. I've not used raw sugar snap peas before in my meals, so was skeptical, but they were such a perfect complement to the other salad ingredients. I could literally go on and on about how delicious this was - but I won't. :) Here are some notes: (1) I did not have limeade concentrate and would not buy any just to use 3T, so I replaced the concentrate with 2 1/2 Tbsp lime juice, 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice, and 1 1/2 tsp sugar; (2)I halved the dressing recipe. The conversion turned out well and the amount more than plenty for our needs. I did not have dried minced onion and prefer the taste of fresh onion, so I used approximately 1/4 cup finely chopped onion in the dressing; (3) I used canola oil instead of vegetable oil; and (4) I mistakenly added all the dressing ingredients in the blender at once, rather than slowly adding in the oil and stirring in the poppy seeds at the end. I don't know if following the instructions would have made a difference or not, but it saved me time and was absolutely wonderful! Enjoy!

Bean and Bacon Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2005
Would give this 6 *'s if I could. Very fresh. Lots of chopping, but worth it. I'm not very good at measuring "cups" of vegetables--for this recipe I used 1 head of cabbage, 1 small bunch of celery, and 1/2 an onion. We're not big fans of raw onion, so reserved a little bit of bacon grease to cook the onion prior to combining with other ingredients (after draining well). This recipe is a great way to deliciously add cabbage to your diet!!

Spinach Cheese Squares

Reviewed: May 18, 2003
Recipe very simple to make and delicious! Must wait for the squares to cool completely before cutting or you're in for a huge mess!

Banana Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This recipe tasted great when first prepared. However, it did not store well at all, not even overnight -- the rice hardened and the banana browned (as did the rest of the pudding). If anyone knows of some tricks to prevent these two issues, then you've got yourself a great pudding. Otherwise, enjoy as soon as you prepare it, or don't waste your time.

Christian's Crazy Sherpa Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2005
Absolutely delicious! I "doubled" the recipe and allowed veges to cook for 25 minutes rather than 15 (veges were still fresh, crisp but tender). I recommend cutting all veges to a uniform size. I always find measuring certain vegetables by cup measurements is difficult. For those of you who can sympathize, I added the following measurements: 3 Tbsp butter, 2 cloves garlic, 1 large potato, 1/2 cup frozen peas, 1/2 pound broccoli, 4 carrots, 3 zucchini, 1 green pepper, 1/2 cup-3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Following the recipe in this way, provides approximately 4 servings. DELICIOUS!!

Honey Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2004
This is a great carrot cake recipe! As I keep finding with the cakes I've been making lately, this cake tastes even better after the day it is made. I used 2 9-inch rounds for this cake. I did find the frosting for this cake to be a bit "strange". It's mainly just cream cheese, and as a result, the honey "separated out" once I had iced the cake. By the second day, the cake was looking stranger and stranger (a brown, streaky appearance and the icing had split along the line where the two cake layers come together)...but it sure did taste good! If anyone has some tips to prevent this, please post!

French Green Bean Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Although we didn't completely enjoy this recipe, the family believes the recipe has lots of potential and will definitely make it again. Next time, to start, I will add lots more green beans OR reduce the amount of stuffing mix. I will also NOT saute the green beans before baking - they turned out shriveled, dry, and limp and the 40 minute cook time should be sufficient (especially for French cut beans).

Spintz Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
Outstanding chocolate cake, exceptionally moist! However, the cake could be a bit "chocolatier." The filling also needs to be less like actual peanut butter and more like a smooth, peanut butter frosting -- it was just too sticky, almost like eating peanut butter out of the jar.

Curry-Strawberry Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
Yum, yum, yum, and yum!! My whole family enjoyed this recipe. Since it hadn't been reviewed yet, I made the recipe exactly as written, and we wouldn't change a thing! And it's so quick and easy to make. We served the chicken alongside rice and broccoli, then ended up mixing it all together, drizzled with the sauce, and it was EXCELLENT!! I can't wait to make this one again.

Mom's Easy Bake Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
This is a great recipe! Very easy, yummy, and lower sodium content than many other recipes on this site for baked beans (because it doesn't use a collection of canned products to create the finished product). I only give 4 stars because frankly we're talking about baked beans here. =)

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Not as impressed as other reviewers. Mine turned out a bit watery, and we didn't really like the combo of flavors. I'll keep looking for a similar dip that does not contain cream cheese.

Royal Icing II

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
One of the best royal icing recipes I've tried. Very runny as is though. To pipe decorations for a cake, I needed to add a bunch more confectioners' sugar so that there could be form to the decorations (not sure of the amount).
