Spiced Peach Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I subbed yogurt for the buttermilk and use wheat flour instead of white. The muffins have a great, moist texture; I don't miss the fat at all. However, they really only taste like molasses. I love molasses, but don't really want my peach muffins to taste like gingerbread.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I just made this with a slew of 2-3 year olds. Even with tiny hands doing the measuring, stirring, kneading and shaping, they turned out YUMMY.

Kellogg's® Rice Krispies Treats® Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
Who doesn't love a Rice Krispie Treat? We added purple and green sprinkles to the cereal, cut out stars and flowers, skewered them and called them Tinkerbell wands for my 3 year old's birthday party. Too cute!

Cinnamon-Apple Chex® Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
This is fantastic for a sweet treat. I used Crispex because I needed the mix to be gluten free. I made my own dried apples with some apples that were on their last legs. I used craisens instead of yogurt raisens. YUMMY!

Sweet and Spicy Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
Definitely follow the suggestions of the other reviewers and add a couple teaspoons of water to the sugar mix. I also changed the spices because I dislike cumin and I didn't think curry was the taste I was going for on these; follow your tastebuds. I roasted almonds, added them to the melted sugar/spice mix (with water added) and stirred until the nuts were well coated and there was no more glaze at the bottom of my pan. Then I threw them back in the oven (spread out well on parchment paper) for another 10 minutes until the glaze had set well. They didn't stick together and they are very yummy.

Roast Pork with Maple and Mustard Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I basted the roast several times, but the glaze did not glaze it at all, it just burned on the bottom of the pan. It is too thin and doesn't stick, so the pork had no flavor and now I have some serious srubbing to do. Not worth it.

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
Yum. These aren't the richest/chocolately-est brownies in the world, but they have a GREAT texture. I made them with the butter and added just a bit of oil as well.

Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
Really interesting. The cake mix makes the whole roll gooey and tender like the middle of a bready roll. But, I think this was just a little too sweet and a little too cakey. I think cutting down on the cake mix might be the trick. I like what the mix adds, but I think this is a bit too much.

Country White Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
My bread turned out pretty dry and kind of flavorless. I think I will try one of the recipies with butter and milk next time. I appreciate that this is one of the few recipies where the instructions aren't "place all ingredients into your bread machine..." though!

Chocolate Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
This cake is amazing. I used to have another recipe for a chocolate pumpkin cake and, must to my dismay, I lost it. This covered the loss! I have to admit, I used more oil (my old recipe called for 1/3 cup, and I believe in a fat cake!). I also added pumpkin pie spice and vanilla to the mix. I only baked the cake for 30 minutes. Finally, I don't do cream cheese frosting, so I mixed some chocolate frosting with a little more pumpkin and some cinnamon for a perfect topping.

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
YUM! What a great healthy recipe! I made a few changes... I cut down the oil and sugar and used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. I used yogurt instead of applesauce. I used fake eggs. I substituted some of the flour with Wheat Germ. I used the food processor on my fresh strawberries. I added lemon zest and juice (for a light tartness) and blueberries. These are awesome muffins with great flavor and texture! Thanks!!!

Cream of Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
I added garlic, onion, and white pepper, but there still just wasn't any flavor but butter, flour and asparagus. Good base recipe, but it really needs some doctoring.

Scotcharoos

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
I doubled the topping as others had mentioned (in fact, I think I doubled the butterscotch and maybe even tripled the chocolate... I love chocolate). Instead of using the sugar and corn syrup, I melted the peanut butter with a bag of marshmallows for a chewier bar. I think that solves the problem some people were having with the hard bars. Really yum!!!

Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
The flavor was good, but the texture was very strange for a brownie. This is more like a fluffy/spongy cake than a brownie. I added a little bit of instant coffee to bring out the chocolate flavor and some chocolate chips to up the ante.

Apple Butter I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2007
Really yummy! I don't suggest using a slow cooker liner for this recipe. I did and it didn't hold up to the 12 hours of cooking, so it broke and all my liquid burned to the bottom of my cooker. But, I just added a little water to the very thick apple paste that I got out of my cooker and pureed it (I think this recipe needs a quick trip through the food processor to lighten it and get the lumps out) and it turned out so very good! Thanks!

Chunky Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
This is ridiculously good. A little on the sweet side, but if that is what you are looking for, this recipe is amazing. I think you could cut the sugar in half (or even almost out) and have a more natural style of chunky applesauce. The vanilla is a great touch.

Carrot Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
These are good, not great, but good. I modified them to make them super healthy (Splenda instead of sugar, applesauce for oil, wheat flour, wheat germ, egg whites, skipped the cream cheese) and I added some extra spice (more cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove) to flavor. They came out a little tough and dry, so I think next time some nonfat, light vanilla yogurt is in order. But, for healthy muffins, these are pretty tasty.

Chicken Chimi in the Oven

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
So Yummy!!! I cut the oil out completely and just used Pam and chicken broth instead (no need for the extra fat and calories in an otherwise healthy recipe) and substituted whole wheat tortillas for the regular flour torts. I cut back on the spices per other reviewers comments. DO NOT cut the cinnamon out! It adds such a wonderful flavor! Great Chimis!

Cambodian Tapioca-Banana Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
I followed the recipe exactly. It took way way way too long to make. My small pearl tapioca didn't turn transparent for 45 minutes. Now that it is finally done, the final product looks unapetizing and tastes as bad. Sorry, really not worth the time.

Pork Brine

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
I cut the salt in half, as others suggested, but my pork still ended up WAAYYY too salty. Just too much salt and not enough flavor. I even finished it with a molasses glaze, and that couldn't cut the salty taste.
