Yogurt Biscuits

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
Synopses: Fluffy, pull-apart, yummy flavor! I love that these biscuits are healthier than most because of the small amount of butter, and the fat-free yogurt. With the following modifications, they will now be my staple biscuit recipe! The Changes: To make them even healthier (and yummier too) for %50 of the flour I use whole wheat pastry flour, butter in place of the margarine, and local honey in place of the sugar. Also, once I incorporate the yogurt, I add 1-4 Tbs of milk about 1 TB at a time until the texture is right. The first time I made them I scored the dough as directed, and they were good. The second time I cut them out like regular biscuits, and I liked them much, much more. p.s. No need to coat the baking sheet with cooking spray.

Light Wheat Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
These were very yummy and picturesque. Perfectly golden and soft outside, soft, tender and fluffy inside. The flavor was good too, overall, more than I was expecting from half whole wheat rolls. (I reduced the sugar by half, and I think that makes it taste better unless you want a sweet roll)

Creamy Strawberry Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This rating is for the filling only, because I used a different recipe for the crepes. We loved the filling spread on the inside with all kinds of fruit! One thing though; it wasn't possible to 'fold' in the whipped cream, I really had to beat it in, in the end. Delicious!

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
This pie is super moist and flavorful and gets rave reviews from everyone who tries it. (They're not just flattering me either, I know this because they were going around complementing it, trying to find out who made it :) I use 1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie spice in place of the cinnamon and nutmeg.

Elegant Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
I enjoyed this soup, but my husband did not. He felt like it was O.K., but nothing he would want me to go through any trouble to make again. I thought it had a southern, comforting taste, not to mention it's pretty healthy. Although, I wouldn't call it 'elegant'.

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
I love using this for a bottom crust on any pie, it always turns out perfect! If I'm making a 2 crust pie, I use this for the bottom, and another favorite for the top.

Pain de Campagne - Country French Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Excellent! I will continue to make this again and again. Light, airy inside, perfectly crunchy outside; it's my go-to dough. I don't do any of the 'resting' times, because I think they're a waste of time. It makes a big batch, and I can get 6-8 small loaves out of it (I store the extras in the fridge in plastic, and provided they don't mold, they only get better with age.) This is also what I use for homemade pizza crust, and it is the BEST! If I want to be healthier, I make it with half whole wheat flour, and it's still delicious, though it isn't as light and airy, and it has a slightly bitter taste to it, we love it still. Also makes great bagels!

Yellow Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I changed a lot of stuff about this because I was short on certain ingredients, and it still came out amazing! I can't wait to play with the recipe some more and get back to you!

Chunky Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Delicious! Where the recipe says to "lightly mash", I used a hand-held mixer instead; I guess I didn't want it to be quite so chunky. Also, I used water instead of chicken broth, and mozzarella instead of swiss. We grated some parmesan on the top at the table, too! Creamy and flavorful, with some great texture too!

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This was good, my only problem with it is that you can feel the texture of the spices as you drink it.

Buttery Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
These were yummy! Mine had a chewy crust, and were pretty dense, because of the short rise time. I prefer the health benefit of using half whole wheat flour, and these rolls didn't stand up to it very well, so I would only give them 4 stars, but you can't knock on a recipe if you didn't follow it. (I used half the dough to make cinnamon rolls the next morning, and those were light and amazing!)

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe,he said it's the best banana bread he's ever had! I don't like the typical taste/texture of banana bread, so I was excited to try a recipe that sounded unique. I made a few changes though: (1) I used 1 stick of melted butter in place of the shortening. (2) I added 1/4 tp each, of cinnamon and nutmeg. (3) I used whole wheat flour, and some flax seed and wheat germ. (4) Added 1 tp vanilla (5) After mashing the bananas, I used a hand-held mixer on them, which brought out their liquid, thus making it easier to stir in the remaining ingredients; and I believe gave it a better flavor and texture. (6) I finished off the batter by using the mixer to make it smooth and well blended. It developed a nice, chewy crust, while the inside was soft and delicious, without being overly moist. This is my banana bread recipe from now on!
