Janette's White Whole Wheat French Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
Wonderful, soft and light! Bread ready on the table in around 2 hours. Light, delicate whole wheat bread --so unlike what whole wheat's notorious for. You'll be pleased.

Velvety Pumpkin Soup With Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
my daughter made this, doubled in fact, and it turned out just awful. We used fresh pumpkin, goat's milk (which is creamier than 1/2 & 1/2) and followed the instructions to a "t" --it looked lovely, smelled remarkable --but tasted like BLECH! We ended up pulling out the packaged of ready-mades & had an unhealthy dinner instead. boo hoo.

Shrimp and Quinoa

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
First time trying quinoa & now no one in my house wants to eat it again. the quinoa with the raisins, salt and pepper were excellent, but the rest appeared to have too many conflicting flavors. Sent husband to work w/the cold leftovers, hoping they'd taste better (like the description advises "cold") and he called from work and said, "Please don't ever make this again." politely, but hungrilly! followed recipe to the "T" except we didn't have any fresh mushrooms, so we ommitted. Taste: bitter, sweet, salty, bland, fishy (from the shrimp).

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
we were awaiting fireworks and only got matches out of this one... not anywhere near as delicious as we'd hoped. What do I expect, though? It was the easiest recipe on the planet. (Kids picked out the zuccini & ate the grinders zucc-free, saying, "ah, now it tastes like pizza!")

Mock Chicken Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I'm biased, but I love these~ my kids thought it was chicken & my choosey, non-vegetarian husband said they were really good stuff!

Blueberry Crisp II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
The blueberries weren't sweet without anything added to them, the topping was alright, but as I suspected, I could taste the mayo & it just didn't fit. had to stir it up to make it palatable. I'd much rather use a normal crumble recipe with my precious blueberries...

Muesli Bars I

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
My 10 year old son and I really enjoyed these, but my other kids didn't... Used Smart Blend instead of butter and walnuts instead of hazelnuts.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Oh, man. This is too addictive. I used Smart Blend instead of butter, Almond milk instead of water and skipped the white sugar, since I added semi-sweet choco-chips... I couldn't stop our daughter from racing me to it! There's only the smallest bit left in the fridge & it's mine!!!

Chicken Vesuvio

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
It was edible, but no one from age 3 to 14 enjoyed it, nor did my husband. The potatoes ended up tasting like lemony, boiled potatoes. It was a moist breast, but definitely boring. I served with Normandy Vegetables & those ended up getting eaten up, instead of the Vesuvio. Great name, bland recipe. Sorry ISYBEL

Big Batch Kris Kringle Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
My husband doesn't even like cookies (can anyone imagine that???) and he gobbled these things down, saying, "These are the best cookies EVER" --next batch was requested without nuts, add extra cherries, he inhaled them. The kids had to fight to get at the cookie plate. Great gift cookies, very pretty, too.

Zucchini Pie

Zucchini Crust Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
my hubby loved it! I give it 4 stars because I wasn't as thrilled. When browsing reviews I couldn't figure out how someone could describe a pizza as "quiche-like" but after baking mine, I found out why. It is soft and quichey, tastes like a thin quiche! didn't have Feta, used mozzarella, added sliced green & red peppers

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
oh, help me! I'm dead This recipe creates a muffin worth 2 bucks each! If not $4! --Otis Spunkimeyer, watch out! These are a WW's nightmare (I think these are well over 12 points each, eek!) but what a treat! Family loves these, the topping makes a sensation on top of apple pies, too!

Excellent! Served it on boring hamburger buns & still saw my SIL eat 2!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
Yummy! I added a tsp of garlic powder and curry powder, each, for some boost-flavor. Comfort food, easily made! Used thights & breasts first time, just breasts 2nd time, both came out great. Also made my own biscuit dough & it was cheaper!

Orange Beef-Style Tofu Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
As Willy Wonka (Jonny Depp version) said, "Ew." Not at all pleasant, the tofu was just crispy, but softening in the sauce ...tofu -no taste about it! My hubby said, "crunchy, chewy water-flavored Chinese food. Please don't make this again." I spent well over 25 mins prepping to have to tell the kids to "eat up, Puh-leez?" and only end up tossing 3/4 of it. Ho hum. The sauce was good on the carrots though, which gives this one star.

Quick Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Fast, pretty easy and filling but did need a bit of curry or something to liven it up some. I'll make it again, mostly because it's so healthy and so fast!
