Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I am not a banana bread person at all. But since I had some bananas in the fridge I went ahead and tried this recipe. I cut the recipe in half and modified the amount of ingredients called for: used 3/4 c of white sugar and 3/4 brown; added a dash of nutmeg and all spice; and no nuts used (personal preference). I had some leftover streusel mix (1/2 c flour, 4Tbs butter, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon) so I used and drizzzled it on top. Came out good and the bread alone is super moist. If I make banana bread again, I will only use this recipe.

Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
We just had this about 10 minutes ago. It is quick and easy to make. I made a lot of changes though based on what I have on hand. I decreased the amount of water and meatballs. We have the precooked Italian meatballs from Sams and they were big ones. I also used Italian seasoning for the herbs. No celery and no tomato sauce. Instead I used just plain water and seasoned according to my liking. I wanted it to be a little thicker so I added about half a cup of white rice and it did the trick. I have very picky twin toddlers and their bowls were empty. Hubby loved it coming home from a very cold evening drive. This recipe saved me tonight and this is truly a keeper. Thanks so much for sharing.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
I made this cupcake this morning with my twin toddlers. They are easy to make. I followed the recipe as it is, no frosting and came up with 24 cupcakes. I added marshmallows in the middle and was a bit scared it might get too sweet. It turned out perfect, this recipe doesn't make your cupcakes very sweet at all. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

Cream Corn Like No Other

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
This is a very versatile recipe. Thanks for sharing. It is currently on my stove. I followed the recipe as it is, added a little green beans and topped with bacon pieces. Very delectable. Nice warm dinner for this mid-march chilly evening.

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
I am not a fan of cream cheese frosting at all unless it is on carrot cake. But I must say this recipe is the best I have had tried. I have looked & tried a lot of recipes from this site & somewhere else. So far this is the best. And I am not looking any more. The only change I made was to add 1/4 c sugar to make it less cream cheesy. Then just like a previous post, I added unflavored gelatin at the end to keep it firmer. I was thinking of skipping the almond extract but it actually is a very good & delicious addition. My 4 y/o daughter who is not a fan of sweets at all, loved this frosting...yep, this is not very sweet at all.

Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I have twin toddlers, one loves any kind of fruits and the other eats carbs and sweets almost always. I made this in a matter of minutes. I followed the recipe, added some vanilla, just eyeballed it and less than half a teaspoon of powdered sugar. I did not even have time to refrigerate it. It worked great. I don't have any form of syrup or sauce so I used a little bit of grape jelly, lined it with banana slices, topped it with whipped cream, rolled it and voila! Both kids loved it. They are only 4 yrs old and they both had 2 pcs each. I had fruit, desert, and carbs all in one. The other piece had orange slices in it too. Again, thanks for sharing.

Jif® Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
I love this recipe. I did some changes to it due to availability of ingredients and just to tweak it a bit. I used 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the shortening. I didn't have any shortening, and the half cup reduction was an error in measurement; 1 1/2 C whole wheat flour & 2 C white APF; and used grape jelly instead. I tried doing it both ways: baking it with and without the jelly. If you intend to eat it right away, you can put jelly after baking, if not, it is better to bake it with the jelly but both looked aesthetically pleasing either way. I tried baking in batches. Baked some for 10 mins and it was ok, light and fluffy; baked some for 11 mins and it was crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. I used my thumb to make a pretty good depression & to avoid letting the dough stick on my thumb, I dipped it on sugar first.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
I prepared this tonight for dinner. And I had a bottle of pre-mixed honey mustard so I just added basil and used garlic salt with parsley to season the chicken. After 20-30 minutes, I sliced the meat open to check done-ness and tried it too for flavor. And boy it was overpowering both smell and flavor. So I am taking this off my recipes.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Oh so good! I doubled the recipe but not the topping and added a few drops of almond extract as suggested. Baked for 32 minutes in a 9x9 pan. Turned oven off and let it cook for 5 more minutes. I made this for my twins' preK class. My kids tried them before I served them lunch and boy, the did not even finish lunch because they wanted another share of this. Can't blame them.

Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
I love this recipe. I made it for dinner tonight. I had to adjust based on what I have available. I used half mayo, half sour cream on this one. I also used whole wheat bread crumbs as topping with cheddar cheese. I only used one bag (12oz) of broccoli and it was just perfect. I served it with angel hair pasta. Everybody loved it. Thanks for sharing.

Cream Cheese Ham Omelet

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
I just now made this. It is on my kids plate for dinner (why not) waiting to cool down a bit. I used whatever deli meat I had in the fridge (sliced turkey) and diced it. I used regular egg with skim milk and added the seasonings in the egg mixture before pouring it in the skillet. I also used sliced swiss cheese. I added dried mushroom too. THis is a keeper. Tastes so good.

Baked Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2012
This was my base recipe. I have homemade beef spaghetti sauce available. So I used that as stuffing but added whole wheat bread crumbs with some leftover tuna flakes and to mellow down the smell of tuna, I added some homemade pesto.

Healthier Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
I tried this recipe twice. The first time I did it, I followed one review to use just a cup of sugar and because I had no plain yogurt at that time, I used strawberry flavored yogurt. It wasn't too bad but was not appealing either. This afternoon, I tried it again and used applesauce instead of butter and used low fat vanilla yogurt this time. The dough will be too soft to handle so I used spoon to mold it and baked it for 10 mins. It was too soft so the rest of the batch was baked for at least 12 mins. I also sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top - healthier snickerdoodles. My twins loved it.
