Sock It to Me Cake IV

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
Made this cake yesterday, and it is fabulous! Husband ate 2 huge servings! Only subs I made were toasted walnuts (heart healthy) instead of pecans and plain nonfat yogurt instead of fat and calorie laden sour cream. Cake was very moist, flavorful, and simply delicious! I will not feel guilty eating it with these healthy changes.

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
This recipe makes a very moist, flavorful cake. My husband loves it, and he usually wants chocolate. Cutting the vanilla to 2 tsps. in the glaze cuts down the sweetness and makes it just about perfect. I used lite sour cream, and it worked out perfectly. Next time, I will cut back the oil to 1/2 C as it is simply TOO moist. Made it 2 days ago, and it is 3/4s gone. I have only eaten 1 average-size serving. That tells you something!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2006
I had 4 overripe bananas and decided to give this recipe a try. Delicious & very moist. I added 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips and frosted (not really necessary) it with our favorite deep chocolate frosting. My husband loved it! He refuses to eat cakes that are the least bit dry so this one is a keeper! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Cafeteria Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
I made this dish for Christmas dinner, and it was enjoyed by my family. It was light and fluffy and melted in your mouth. Next time, I think I will add a little cinnamon, though. I used Splenda instead of sugar, and no one knew except me! Will make often!

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2005
These are excellent buns! Halved the recipe and used fat-free, lactose-free milk (a must for my husband), and 1 C of whole wheat flour. They were delicious - even when I accidentally baked the first panful at 400 (forgot to turn oven down when I put rolls in). I got 6 very large buns and 4 average size buns out of the halved recipe. Great with our burgers. I split, buttered, and toasted one of the very large ones for breakfast this morning. Wonderful! Will make again and again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Spiced Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
I have been making a version of this for about 15 years. It is beautiful and delicious! I do not add the sugar & lemon juice (really not necessary) and cook the apples & candies in a large, heavy skillet on top of the stove. Just cook until tender and mash them slightly - be sure and leave some chunks for texture. Had eaten something similar at one of my husband's class reunions and decided to try making it myself. Really dresses up a holiday plate! The spices in the candy are perfect for the apples. You can increase/decrease the color and spiciness by controlling the amount of candy you add. Do try and enjoy! You will not be sorry!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
I have used this recipe for almost 50 years. You simply cannot improve on this filling! However, I do not like soggy pie crusts so I solved this problem years ago by adding 1 Tab. instant flour to this filling and making it "crustless." The consistency is still just as creamy, and it slices beautifully. Just be sure and butter your pie plate. I bake it at 350 for 55 mins.(center should be set and when pie is shaken gently, should not jiggle.) Saves a LOT of calories and fat grams! I make this pie all year round - not just during the holidays. Try this method; it will work for you!

Sunday Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2005
Wonderful textured rolls but lacked that buttery flavor we love in our rolls.! The dough was so soft that I could not roll it out and cut it into triangles. So I made balls(these spread out beautifully) and finally scooped the rest of the dough into muffin pans (these did not rise as well). Next time, I will use butter, eliminate 1/4 C liquid, and use milk instead of water (should be less sticky). They are wonderfully light and airy!!!!!!

Donna's Spanish Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2005
This is - quite simply - gingerbread! Sorry, but this should not be classified as a bar cookie. It is, however, good, moist, delicious gingerbread! Will serve it cut in squares with a lemon or orange sauce. I used 1 C brown sugar & 1 C Splenda and subbed Canola oil for shortning. Turned out perfect!

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2005
Love this recipe! It can also be a delicious, quick, hearty, meatless vegetable soup! As usual, I adapted it to my taste. Left out the red bell pepper(had none), subbed olive oil for vegetable, subbed whole jarred button mushrooms (cut in half) for fresh, used diced tomatoes instead of whole, reduced cumin to 1/2 Tab. and added 1 tsp. sugar. No need for added tomato sauce/paste as some reviewers suggested. When I make this again (and I will), I will reduce the chilil powder by half (personal preference). This makes a hearty, healthy, low-cal. lunch which is what I was looking for. I found that the recipe will make a lot more than 8 average servings! Wonderful with a corn muffin/stick. Thanks, Tianne!

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
These are excellent muffins! Can't believe they are so low in fat and yet so moist. I used All Bran cereal and subbed pureed prunes from the baby food aisle for the applesauce. My berries were still partially frozen when I mixed them into the batter, but the batter was dense enough to keep them from all sinking to the bottom. I froze most of them and will eat one every morning for breakfast. A delicious way to get that very necessary fiber into the diet! Do not hesitate to try these!!!

Hot Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
Excellent recipe! My husband and I both LOVED it! As usual, I did have to make a few changes. Since I had no jarred applesauce,(I usually make my own), I quickly peeled, cored, and chunked 3 Granny Smiths and cooked them on low for l5 mins. with 3 Tab. white sugar & a dash of lemon juice (tender stage) and "smashed" them a little but did leave small chunks for extra flavor. This made a perfect substitute! My only canned peaches were sweetened with Splenda, and they worked fine. I did cut each slice into 3rds(fits into the mouth better). Could not locate 8 oz. can of pineapple chunks in my grocery store so used tidbits instead, and they worked fine. I had a can of "lite" apple pie filling in my pantry (impulse buy) that needed to be used so I tossed that in. The end result had a wonderful texture and taste! Next time, I will probably add a can of pear halves, drained and chunked. This would make a beautiful presentation at a holiday meal because it is so colorful! It does make a lot (almost filled up my 13x9 dish), but you can enjoy it in a variety of ways. I warmed it and served it with teacakes as dessert, ate it as a side dish, and will serve it over pound cake slices with whipped topping for dessert tonight. Also, it will be wonderful with vanilla ice cream. A delicious and versatile dish! Thanks for the recipe!

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
This cake is truly awesome! My husband considers chocolate cake his favorite dessert, and he LOVES this one. First time I have ever added coffee! You do not taste the coffee, but it imparts a deep, rich flavor. (No changes were made to the recipe.) It is very moist - even 4 days later. I topped it with our favorite dark chocolate frosting which I have used for over 40 years. There is just the 2 of us at home now, and the cake is disappearring rapidly for an older couple! Thanks, Marsha, for a fabulous recipe.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
Truly delicious scones! Only my 2nd attempt to make them (first attempt was 20 years ago and not very successful). These turned out great but were not exactly like the submitted recipe. I had recently eaten an orange cranberry scone at a Fresh Market and loved it and was trying to duplicate the flavor. These are even better! My changes included subbing orange Craisins and adding 1 1/2 tsp. orange zest, lite sour cream, fat-free evaporated milk (for richness), and omitting the egg wash. They were so soft that I dropped them - 12 - onto a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkled them with natural sugar crystals. Fabulous! They were full of flavor, not heavy, and crunchy on the outside. My husband tasted them and has requested one with his lunch today (his first scone). Next tiime, I will make 24 smaller scones and share them with friends. This is not scone country so they will be a novelty!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
My husband and I enjoyed this version of pecan pie very much. I lowered the calorie count even more by using 3/4C brown sugar and 1/2 C Splenda, and I used heart healthy margarine instead of butter. Best eaten warm. I am a traditional cook in pecan country and was skeptical until I tried it. I had given up making pecan pies because of the high calorie and saturated fat counts so I am thrilled to have this recipe.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
These are easy and delicious burgers! I had a package of 1.2 lbs. ground lean turkey breast so I had to adjust the ingredients. I used powdered garlic, a whole egg, and I grated my onion. Made 4 large burgers. Next time, I will add a little smoke flavoring and chill the meat mixture to marry flavors and to make it easier to shape the patties. We prefer not to eat a lot of beef so this fits into our diet perfectly. Thanks, Trudi, for sharing this delicious recipe.

Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2005
Fabulous muffins! I ended up with 1 1/2 C chopped Granny Smith apple so I left out the carrot. To save calories, I also omitted the nuts. Result: a wonderful apple muffin! The texture is just perfect.
