Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
Awesome recipe! I substituted EVOO for the shortening and reduced the sugar slightly. The result was a super fluffy, spongy, yeasty dinner roll. This recipe is a keeper for me. CAREFUL! This is a wet, sticky, gloppy dough. It's not a dry, pliable dough that you can handle. Don't add flour. Treat it like muffin batter that requires rising and you won't be disappointed.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
These were way way too sweet for me. They almost tasted like a sugar cookie. Despite that, I want to mention that I used 1/4 cup measure to scoop the dough, smooshed slightly on the pan before baking, and they came out with a great size, texture, consistency, etc. Baked perfectly in 10 minutes. Although they were too sweet for my liking, I took them in to the office this morning fresh from the oven and they were devoured in minutes with rave reviews. Everyone enthusiastically loved them. I might try these again with less sugar, but I think I'll just stick to the recipe for Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie on this site because the flavor is so much better.

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I made this with drained fat free plain yogurt, dijon mustard, and omitted the lemon juice and it was delicious!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
These were very yummy. I used all butter and no shortening and added a pinch of nutmeg. This recipe is a keeper!

Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
These cookies weren't bad, but they just weren't good. I made these at the same time I made Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Cookies (the recipes are nearly identical) and the Spicy ones were much tastier. I will keep trying to find a richer chocolate oatmeal cookie.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
This was very tasty! I had some problems with it cooking in the center, but I think it may have been my new oven. I added walnuts to the batter and pressed a lot on top to make a pretty loaf. Also added 1 tsp.vanilla. Delish!

Barbecue Tofu Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
This was AWESOME! I only made two slices to begin with, and because it was so yummy, I went back and made some more with the remaining tofu block. I used Bullseye Original BBQ Sauce. This had a wonderful texture. I think the thinner you can slice it, the better. My best experience cooking tofu yet! A definite keeper.

Strawberry Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
This was really yummy. It kind of tastes like bread with built-in jam. I halved the recipe and made only one loaf. I used all whole wheat flour, half the sugar, added 1 tsp. vanilla, and added 1/2 cup pureed strawberries. A great way to use up not-so-great strawberries!

Cherry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2006
I hate to leave a poor review but this was not good. I think it may be because of my cherries though. They weren't very flavorful raw and weren't any better cooked. The cobbler topping was okay but not great. I had high hopes for this recipe but was disappointed!

Banana Oat Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2006
Mine was DELICIOUS. But I must say that I did make quite a few changes.... 6 slices of bread instead of 4, 1/4 cup applesauce plus 1 tablespoon smart balance light instead of butter, added 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 2 tsp. cinnamon. Omitted raisins and added 1/2 cup walnuts. While the bread and oats were soaking, I mixed together everything but the bananas. I mashed up one of the 4 bananas and added it to the cinnamon mixture and let it soak in the fridge while the bread/oats were doing their thing for about 1 1/2 hours. Baked for 55 minutes and came out perfect! (see my photo!) I recommend 'chopping' the bananas instead of slicing so that you get more of them distributed throughout the dish and you get a little in every bite. This was great for dessert but even better for breakfast. I think rum or rum extract would really make this yummy.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
I have made this many times and it is VERY GOOD. We are working on concocting the perfect rum sauce topping still though. In other news,...Ok so get this: I made Martian Cookies (zucchini chocolate chip cookies) but because I tried to make them healthy and made lots of substitutions, they were pretty undesirable, cakey and looked like roadkill. So, I decided to throw them into this bread pudding as my 'bread' and this was a success. My modifications were as follows.... approximately 15 Martian Cookies (torn into small chunks) plus 4 slices wheat bread, omitted raisins, and sprinkled chocolate chips on top. Maybe in the future you will think to recycle/reincarnate your baking 'mistakes' in this recipe as I did!

Wheat Germ Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
I agree with everything BusyDad reviewed (see below). He said it perfectly. I love the idea of healthy treats, but this was just okay. I added finely chopped salted peanuts and mini chocolate chips to mine (upping the calories and downing the healthiness) but they just werent anything special. I may try to tweak this recipe but probably not.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
This was okay but not as great as I wanted it to be. I ended up doubling this recipe to go with only a half recipe of Chantal's New York cheesecake because it didn't seem like enough. Also, I added a few squirts of red food coloring to make it a more vibrant red. I didn't puree too much of mine because I didn't want it too runny. All in all good flavor and a great complement to cheesecake.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
This was okay but not the best cheesecake I've ever had. Could have been richer I think - to make it more indulgent. But it was so easy to make! I actually halved the filling recipe and baked mine in a pie pan. I 'freestyled' the crust because I wanted mine nice and thick. To the crust I added finely chopped walnuts, 2 Tbsp sugar, and a dash of cinnamon. I used a water bath and left mine in the oven for about 3 hours - no cracks! It was beautiful! I think I will keep this recipe but maybe look out for another cheesecake recipe to try next time.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
This was decent but not as great as I had hoped. I think I should have dried out my broccoli more because my quiche turned out watery too. Tasted better leftover.

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
These are okay but not great. Raisins, dates, walnuts, and cinnamon help. I think I will try to 'perfect' these to my own liking. I like that I don't feel guilty eating them though!!! The second time I made them I used wheat bran for 1/2 cup flour, and added milled flax seed and wheat germ. Maybe I'll try adding honey instead of brown sugar?

Lemon Zucchini Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2006
I strayed pretty far with my modifications for this recipe, but it was still pretty good. I used limes and lime zest in place of the lemons (the green from the zucchini and green from the limes go well together). I used 1/2 cup applesauce for 1/2 cup oil, half whole wheat flour, egg beaters, and 3/4 cup sugar (I wouldnt cut back because I dusted the top with confectioner's sugar at the end because it wasnt sweet enough). I baked mine in a jelly roll pan for only 20 minutes. I like how it came out very spongy and light. Next I will try this with lemon or orange.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
This is a pretty good recipe. Mine turned out dark/bittersweet which is how we like it. And it tastes better the day after I made it. Definitely not fudgy brownie-like. This is chocolate cake. But yummy nonetheless and a great use-up for huge garden zucchini. Here are the changes I made... left out 1/2 cup sugar, used 1 cup whole wheat flour, used 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce, added 1/2 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup walnuts, and didn't make the icing. I topped mine with chocolate syrup and/or vanilla ice cream.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
These are delicious! I would recommend this recipe. I added a few things to make it even more healthful...chopped walnuts and almonds, 1/2 cup milled flax seed, 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 cup apple sauce (because it seemed dry). I used stone ground whole wheat flour, old fashioned oats, clover honey, and canola oil. I love how moist these are! They are like eating a healthy oatmeal cookie!

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2005
My problem could be that I used "lite" butter instead of regular. but these were not very good. I had a REALLY hard time spreading these into my 9x13 and when they were done, they were only about 1cm thick. The flavor is so-so, and the texture could be creamier (mine came out a little grainy/gritty.) I hope you have better results with these than I did!
