Granny's Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
This was EXCELLENT! It was very moist and flavorful. The spices were a really nice addition, and you could certainly taste the nutmeg/cinnamon. I hate to have deviated from the recipe, but I only had two bananas, so their contribution was pretty mild. I also did half whole-wheat flour and half regular flour. Combining this with the optional walnuts/craisins, the bread was wonderfully hearty. My family really enjoyed this and I'm sure I'll be making it again.

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
This is a simple recipe and turned out just great. However, I would recommend the changes made by other reviewers. Don't take this at face value - treat it as something basic to be modified per your personal preferences. Here at my house, I mixed up some salt & pepper, garlic powder, and dried basil flakes to shake on top halfway through the baking. It was a great addition.

Best Strawberry Daiquiri

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2008
This was perfect! The only change I might recommend is to use crushed ice rather than cubes. This took our Osterizer out for a ride, but the drinks were well worth the hassle!

Cinnamon Sugar Butter Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Great recipe, and very flexible! The cookies were soft the first day, but crisp the second. I was able to roll them in cinnamon-sugar, sugar, or just leave them plain. Just make sure to be careful about the bottoms - the cinnamon-sugar mixture can burn if you bake them too long.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
Due to kitchen limitations, I had to cut the recipe in half. I opted for 1 single-serve cup of applesauce and 3 tbsp of canola oil instead of the recipe's oil and egg. With a few drops of vanilla extract added to make it fragrant, the cornbread was beautifully golden after 15 minutes. The inside was soft and sweet, and the edges were crunchy from the pan. I'd make this again.

Broccoli with Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2008
Could be spicier (I used 1 teaspoon of red chili powder)

Egg-Free Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
I followed SUCCUBUS' recommendation and added two tablespoons of peanut butter to these cookies. They smelled so great that I couldn't wait for them to cool down and burned my fingers trying to sample one! All of the roommates have given rave reviews. I'll make these again for sure :)

Honey-Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
This got really great reviews - "not too peanut-buttery", "just the right amount of crispness". On my side, they were rather easy to make and looked very professional.

Golden Orange Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
This frosting tasted great, hardened on the outside, and kept soft on the inside. However... it was EXTREMELY unpleasant to make and work with. It was very stiff and we had to add a lot of liquid to make it workable.

Orange Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
This was a great cake! I heard a lot of rave reviews from my coworkers. I didn't use the frosting provided with this recipe, but I did everything else as stated. Perfect for summer.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Great balance of sweet and salty here! I added the crumb topping from the "Banana Crumb Muffins" recipe. In general, the banana flavor isn't overwhelming yet you can smell it in the muffins. Actually, the whole house smelled pretty amazing. Thanks for the great recipe!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
I bake something weekly for my coworkers, and this week I baked these bars. I used blueberry jam, baked it in a circular pan, and cut it like a coffee cake. I drizzled it decoratively with some almond-flavored icing, too. I was treated to such comments as, "Absolutely sinful.", "It's unfair how good these are." and "This is the best thing you've ever baked." With those kinds of reviews, I'd say this recipe deserves five stars alright!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
Fantastic! I assembled these for my coworkers and they all really loved them. They just had to know what made the crunch in the peanut butter; nobody guessed graham cracker crumbs. These are great served cold with coffee - like a Butterfinger candy bar. Thank you for the great recipe!

Low-Fat Fruit Tart

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
The sugar-free pudding tasted weird... next time skip it in favor of just fat-free, or at least vanilla rather than cheesecake.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
I made the recommended modifications: 2 tbsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tsp baking powder. The recipe yielded soft (yes, cake-like) cookies that looked beautiful. My roommate thought they tasted buttery when hot, but my coworkers ate the whole batch. I think they were pretty great.

Fat-Free Apple Pie with Oatmeal Cookie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
Awesome. Wonderful. The sauce was bubbling up around the pie when it was done. This could probably be made with less sugar though.

Spanish String Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
We added some vegetarian sausage to this, and everyone loved it. It's mildly sweet, with a great flavor from the cloves. I'd be happy to make it again. One warning, however: the string beans took twenty minutes to cook. I would advise steaming them instead.

Spanish Hominy

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
I actually neglected to see that this was supposed to be cooked for 6 hours, and only left it over heat for about a half hour. It was still great. So, don't let the cooking time scare you - you can make this flavorful dish in a much shorter amount of time! We also made this with vegetarian bacon, and it was still a hit.
