Pumpkin Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
These were delicious. I made belgium waffles, and they turned out great. (I used half white whole wheat flour.) The syrup was a huge hit - makes the waffles even better. I had some fresh cranberries, so I added them in with the apple juice, and left out the lemon juice. (I also reduced the butter) Yummy!!! I made a double batch of waffles, and needed a triple batch of syrup.

"Pantry Raid" Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Anything my kids eat is a winner with me! I was in a hurry, so didn't put the cornbread mix on top, but did add in a cup of cooked brown rice. I had boneless chicken breasts, so used them instead of tenderloins. Very tasty.

Delicious! I mixed in some butternut squash pieces and used less sugar than called for.

Crispy Edamame

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I had fresh edamame to use, so tried this recipe. The kids and I thought it was pretty good. I did add garlic salt, and needed to cook it far longer - about half an hour, I think. I stirred it several times. They were still quite wet at 15 minutes, but eventually the cheese did get crispy. I think it would work better on an 11x7 baking pan.

Christmas Morning Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Took my crockpot with us camping, and made this recipe for our last morning. Worked great to have a tasty, no fuss, few dishes meal before packing up to go home. (we had brown and serve sausages with it) HOWEVER, a word of caution for anyone wanting to increase the serving size. I needed to feed a group of 12, so I tripled the recipe. However, 12 cups of liquid (6 cups of water and 6 cups of juice) seemed like way too much. I decreased it to a total of 8 1/2 cups liquid, and it was still a bit more soupy than we would have prefered. 7 or 71/2 cups would have been enough liquid. Also, it was quite sweet. If I triple the recipe again, I'll only double the brown sugar. I have a large crock pot (20 cup capacity) and the triple batch (with 8.5 c liquid) filled it almost to the top. And yes, we had a lot left over. A double batch would have served 12 easily, even though almost everyone had seconds.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
These were so yummy! All the kids, from 11 months on up, enjoyed them. I did increase the ratio of applesauce to oil, and beat the egg whites before folding them into the batter. I noticed that these stuck to the waffle iron more than my regular waffles - a quick spray of oil before each waffle was poured on took care of that problem.

Touch of Spring Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
delightfuly delicious. Dice the rhubarb and strawberries into very small pieces, and you won't have any problem with soggy spots in the middle. I love the tangy taste of rhubarb, so will increase the rhubarb to 3/4 C next time. This is a keeper!

Super Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Even the kids, who don't usually like soup, liked this one. I used all fresh veggies, diced turkey I had in the freezer, and added shredded cheddar cheese at serving time as I didn't have processed cheese. We'll make this one again.

Wedding Cake Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Excellent frosting. Half the recipe made just enough to frost the top of a 9x13" cake - without piping any decorations. Light and fluffy, not too sweet, a big hit with everyone here.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
We liked the taste of this, but it cooked a LONG time. I realized my potato chunks were too big, but even so, it baked for just over an hour, and that was using my new convection oven. The other veggies were done well before the potatoes were. My kids turned up their noses at the sight of this, but they actually did eat it once it was on their plates. DICE your potatoes, and this will probably cook in about 40 minutes.

Navy Bean Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
A pound and a half of purchased Italian sausage has 10,000 mg of sodium or more- 5 times the daily limit! and canned corn is high in sodium too....Unless you make your own salt free sausage and use fresh or (carefully selected) frozen corn I can't understand how this would work for someone on a low salt diet. 4 stars for taste, 1 for suitability for low salt diets.

Italian-Style Round Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
The meat was really tender, but I think the sauce needed lots more spices. It was too bland for my taste.

Strawberry Cinnamon Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
These were good, moist and flavorful, but it kind of overwhelmed the strawberry flavor. If you want a tasty muffin, try this one, but if you want something that really tastes like strawberries, keep looking.

Hearty Multigrain Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
This tasted great, but didn't work well in my bread machine. Two cups of flour made a very short loaf. I doubled it, and it rose, then fell as it baked, leaving a huge hole in the finished loaf. However, this tastes good enough that I will try it again, this time doubling it but reducing the liquid by 1-2 tablespoons.

Rhubarb Sauce I

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
This seemed like too much sugar, so I decreased it to 1 1/2 cups - and the sauce still came out more like soup than sauce. Even after cooling in the fridge, it was still pretty soupy. I did use sucanot for part of the sugar - maybe that made a difference? Next time I'll try just 1/4 cup sucanot, and perhaps 1 cup sugar. The sucanot adds a nice light molassas flavor to the rhubarb.

Chiliquilla

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This was quite good. Three of the four kids (all under 7) liked this. I used 4 corn tortillas instead of 8. It took at least 10 minutes to get the tortilla pieces nice and crispy. I made my own enchilada sauce, but even so this was pretty quick to make.

Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
We all enjoyed this - even my 17 mo old. Some prefered it open, some liked it with an additional tortilla on top. Thanks for a great recipe.

Fresh Fruit Breakfast Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
I thought this was ok, but everyone else thought it was really good. (I'm not a big fan of cool whip) My biggest problem with this recipe is that the prep time is WAY off. Fortunately I chose to make the crepes ahead of time, because it took at least 45 minutes just to cook the crepes. Add another 10 minutes to mix up the crepe batter, plus time to chop all the fruit and mix up the "sauce" and you are looking at a good hour and a half of preparation before chilling time. I put the finished crepes on a plate, covered with foil, in the fridge overnight, and they were good as new next morning. I also used frozen blueberries, partially thawed, and that worked well too. (Tip: 16 oz strawberries is about 2 C chopped)

Easy Peach Crisp II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2007
This was ok, but not what I was looking for. I was hoping for a nice crunchy topping, but this was like a peach upside down cake. I changed the recipe a bit- I used frozen (partially thawed) peaches and substituted sucanot for half the sugar. The kids liked this, though.

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
This was ok, but not a big hit with our family. Perhaps because it was different than the one I usually make.
