Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2014
This is a great starter recipe. Start with it and then customize it to fit your lifestyle. We use whole wheat pie crust to make more room for egg and veggies (spinach, kale, celery, peppers, etc.)for the adults and use small portions of whole wheat biscuits with more cheese and proteins for the kids. We also have used a few shredded potatoes for the crust when in a hurry, just make sure you oil the pan really well before baking. Thanks for the inspiration!

Kel's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2014
This is a great "starter" recipe. This means I had a pile of bananas and didn't want them to go to waste. Like others, I looked at the recipe and knew I would change it simply because it was lacking a few things that I like for flavor. I added 2 tsp vanilla, 3 Tbs molasses, 3/4 cup of chopped pecans and 1 tsp cinnamon, I also substituted 1.25 cups of whole wheat flour for one of the cups of all purpose. Because I was out of baking soda (for the first time in my life) and because of the WW flour addition, I added 2 tsp of Baking Powder in lieu of the soda. I was baking at 10 at night so I made muffins instead of bread and baked them about 35 minutes. I mushed all the ingredients together except the flour leaving a few banana chunks and then added the flour with the absolute mininum of stirring. This is a non-yeast bread and you "do not" want to push the gluten in this stuff. The muffins were fantastic and completely gone the next morning. I'm going to buy extra bananas just to make this recipe again next week. I gave the basic recipe 4 stars because vanilla is a non-starter. The rest of the added ingredients are my preferences. As a basic recipe though, this had all the right stuff.

Best Ever Pumpernickel Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2013
This tastes so much like my Mom's recipe. We increased the chocolate by 1/4 and used corn or flax oil instead of canola (rapeseed) which I can taste and don't like. But the measurements were dead on and the recipe really works well. Thanks

Authentic Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
The recipe omitted chile oil or flakes which most good pad Thai needs. I prefer less sugar and date sugar is preferable, failing that we have used honey and prefer its organic flavor to simple white sugar. Definitely need to double the sauce and halve the sugar. Overall a decent recipe, we like ours wokked with tofu and fresh cilantro on top.

My Husband's Pad Thai Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
OK, this is NOT traditional Pad Thai, but this is a pretty good recipe. The heat is wonderful and the flavor very good. I had it with friends who made the shrimp recipe and then I made it at my home with marinated tofu. I would rate this a very good variation. I enjoyed the change. I am partial to the taste of tamarind in my pad thai so I added that last time and I changed the garlic chili sauce to a really good chili oil. It is one of my favorite variations.

Stuffed Pepperoncini

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Great recipe. We also made half without the bacon and added some Romano cheese for a counterpoint. Since we had some crab we made the recipe and added crab. Great idea, one of my favorite appetizers for summer.

Cheeseburger Pockets

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
This is a great fast recipe. I found a whole wheat biscuit dough and used a low fat swiss cheese and turkey burger for a healthier option and it worked so well we had them again the next night! I would think you could use frozen bread dough if you were serving a crowd, especially if you like whole wheat. Definitely turn and cook 5 min on the other side. I heated them up the next day in a microwave cooker/wrapper I saved from some pot pies and they came out perfectly.
