Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
No changes, I just omitted spinach because I don't like spinach in my soups.

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
LOVE IT! You can use less heat for your preference. I've used dried basil when I didn't have fresh, fresh of course tastes better but still good!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
This is pretty darn close to the one sold at Starbucks! I followed recipe except for the allspice (I don't have any so I subbed with cinnamon/nutmeg/clove combo). I did reduce temp to 325 (I have a crazy electric stove) and did bake about 10 mins longer. SOOOOOOOOOO GOOD! Thank you! VERY MOIST too!

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
SO YUMMY! SLOWWWWLY converting my 8&5 year olds to vegan/ clean eating. I halfed the recipe (in case they didn't like it). Here are my subs whole spelt flour (same amout). Melted Earth Balance 'butter' spread (I halfed so only 1/2 a tbsp), and organic/vegan/kosher natural sugar. Oh instead of all water, I did half almond milk. And as all pancakes for my sons, added vegan chocolate chips. My son LOVED them!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe. And for meanies please do not say I changed the recipe. I DID NOT. I just subbed with my products and I wanted to share in case anyone else is wondering the same. They taste great and my boys who are not open to this change in our food habits ate them allll up!

Polish Sausage Kraut Skillet

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
I didn't have caraway seeds, so I didn't use them. And like others omitted the sour cream/ flour step (although he added sour cream to the finished product after I mentioned I left out that step). My boyfriend almost ate the WHOLE PAN!!! He left a small corner!

Strawberry Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Used half the box and fresh strawberries, but found this tasteless?!? I'm soooo upset. I make cupcakes allll the time and had a request for strawberry. After reading the reviews I thought this would be the winner! I should have tasted the cake before frosting, Maybe it was the buttermilk? The cake tasted 'eggy'... So sad

Brown-Eyed Susans I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
First time making these and they were VERY easy to make! I did roll in sugar sprinkles, had no problem with them sticking! I was an idiot however and frosted BEFORE I put in the oven but they are still good LOL. I did have to add more water to the frosting to get a better consistancy.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
Slap yo mama good! Easy as heck, peaches are way toooo expensive, frozen was too, so I used canned and they turned out GREAT! First time I left some of the canned juice in it, but there really isn't a need for it! If you want more 'cake' double the topping recipe, although I love it just the way it is! By accident when I made this the first time i did not read the instructions thoroughly, so I sprinkled with BROWN sugar and some cinnamon. 2nd time I did it the right way (with white sugar) and loved the brown sugar/cinnamon more!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
Easy! They are crispy just to forewarn and they are not super sweet, but if you're eating with syrup, I think they are perfect!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
THE BEST PANCAKES!!! You can adjust milk to have thicker or thinner pancakes! I have been using this for a year now and this is THE BEST one on here! I always have the ingredients and sometimes I sub with buttermilk when I do have that on hand!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
I didn't have vinegar and left it out and used 2 heaping TB of cocoa powder (for no real reason) and it is AMAZING!!! The one's that said this was dry might not have used butter or did not CREAM the butter and sugar long enough!!! GREAT!!! I used a simple cream cheese frosting...SO GOOD!!!
