Italian Biscotti

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
I made these as Christmas gifts several years ago, and people still are talking about it! These rival the pricey ones you get in the coffee shops. Along with the Peppermint and Brownie Biscotti from this site also, made for beautiful gifts that were very enthusiastically received.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
This might sound a little odd, but the most amazing banana bread I've ever had was this recipe: right out of the oven I wrapped it in plastic wrap, then let it sit for two nights. When you eat it right out of the oven, it isn't the best because it hasn't had a chance to sit- something about this process distributes moisture throughout the loaf and makes a gooey-ness.

Pistachio Fluff Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
If you do not have a big sweet tooth, you might think this is too sweet. The pistachio flavor is perfect in this recipe, a very nice choice at a summer barbeque or potluck.

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I would agree with the title of this recipe- these are the best I've had! We'll never buy frozen meatballs again. A few things I adjusted to fit my family: I always saute the onions and garlic first, and substitute ground turkey to lower the fat. Actually with all the flavor in these you can hardly tell the difference when I use turkey. I bake them at 350 for 20 minutes instead of frying them, and triple the batch to freeze the extras for a quick weeknight meal.

Roast Beef Horseradish Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
Pretty tasty. I use whole wheat tortillas to increase the fiber, which might take some getting used to for some people.

Peppermint Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I sampled it just after coming out of the oven, before slicing, and that was a mistake- I'd eaten half the batch before realizing it! These make great gifts around Christmas time, people love getting a little basket of biscotti.

Beverly's Get Up & Go Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I'm about to become one of those annoying people who changes the recipe then rates it. I added dried cranberries and chopped walnuts, which complimented the orange flavor nicely. To make these ok for the health conscious, I substituted applesauce for the butter, and half whole wheat flour. Quadrupling the batch and freezing the extras makes this a convenient grab and go breakfast.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
A solid 4 stars for the convenience of making a big batch and freezing as a single serving lunch! A little bland for my taste, next time I will substitute two of the cans of black beans for chili beans, and use Rotel tomatoes. A couple cans of green chiles would go well too.

Black Bean, Corn, and Tomato Salad with Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
I diced all the ingredients small, and we used it as a dip for tortilla chips. Great flavor, complimented well by the refreshing crunchiness of the jicama. Next time I will mince the jalapeno in my small food processor to avoid the stinging eyes and fingers!

Heavenly Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
Oh my GOODNESS this is to die for! This is not the knock off cool whip mixed with chocolate pudding mix that some places try to pawn off as chocolate mousse. Smooth, firm texture. A couple of tips: whip the cream in a frozen glass bowl, and use a candy thermometer to get your yolks to exactly 160, whisking often. Any higher than that and they will start to solidify and chunk up. I also mixed in crushed up heath bar bits. Next time I will try substituting coffee for the water as others have suggested.

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Hits the spot! Had a little trouble with the slices breaking as they were being cut at first, so I let the loaves cool a few more minutes and tried the suggestion of previous reviewers to use a sharp non-serrated chef's blade, and things went more smoothly after that. Followed the recipe pretty closely, only things I did different were add the cocoa powder and sugar a little on the generous side, then dipped the finished cookies in melted chocolate.

Baked Pears

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
This one is in my menu rotation- a nice change from the usual vegetable with every meal. Getting my kids to eat veggies is mission impossible- but they gobble up the baked pears.

Black Bean Cigars

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This had potential, but needed something. Next time I'll try substituting pepperjack cheese, a can of rotel insted of the picante, add a pkg. of taco seasoning, and enchilada sauce on top. I also thought it would be good with more tater tots.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
We prefer to substitute crumbled bacon for the ham, and I add a seasoning blend for a little flavor. Very forgiving recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This is so simple, and so tasty that everyone thinks I'm a great cook! I add whole frozen chicken breasts to the crockpot, and after several hours of cooking take them out and they shred nicely. Then mix everything in together to cook a little while longer.

Throw Together Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Eh, this was not bad, but neither was it really tasty- I liked the fact that it was low fat. If I tried something like this again I'd tweak it by adding way more seasonings, and add a can of Rotel.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Adjusted this for the crockpot, and it came out nicely. Saute onion and garlic in the olive oil ,reduce the water to 1.5 cups, add a can of beer. Add all ingredients including whole chicken breasts (can be frozen or thawed) and cook on low all day, then take out chicken and shred it. Mix shredded chicken back in soup along with the sour cream, cook for a half hour on high. I also added fresh cilantro and 1.5 tsp cumin, and omitted the cans of tomato soup and whole tomatoes. Quite good topped with shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
These were quite tasty and healthy. I reduced the honey to 3/4 cup and they were still sweet enough. I will make them again, only next time I will add more spices as they needed just a tad more zing, and the topping made much more than I actually needed, so I'll halve that.
