Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
I used these as a base and added a few other ingredients - coconut a little less than 1/4 cup, a medley a dried raisins - golden, regular, and some dried cherries, and about a 1/4 cup of peanut butter. Also added some Tahitian vanilla. I cut the sugar by about 1/4 cup since that's a LOT of sugar. My husband said they were the best cookies ever and has been begging me to make them again. This is not like my husband - not a big sweet tooth.

Swedish Pancakes

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
I've tried a lot of pancake recipes and this one is the best! I did enhance it a bit - I added Tahitian vanilla, Braeburn apple slices on top right after putting on the griddle, and cinnamon sugar. Yum! This will probably be the only recipe I use for pancakes again - unless I'm too lazy to whip up egg whites.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
My family and neighbors all gave it a thumbs up. We tried to it with 1) a mix of regular milk and vanilla almond milk, 2) regular milk, and 3) vanilla milk only. We preferred it with vanilla almond milk, no regular milk. It was good both ways though. I didn't use honey with any of them, as it was plenty sweet enough. I also used organic peanut butter that was simply ground peanuts - no sweeteners or anything else added. Plants store their food in the roots, so the peanuts have a lot of sugar already. We started freezing almond milk in the ice cube tray and use about 5 cubes and 1/2 cup almond milk instead of the cup of milk. Makes a delicious frosty treat that's healthy, and filling too.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I chose this recipe because my daughter requested Green Bean Casserole for Easter and I try to avoid recipes that call for processed ingredients. We thought it was ok. It was edible and no one complained about it, just not something I'd make again.

Sweet Spicy Wings

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Everyone raved about these wings. I marinated the wings (without the butter) and then after grilling, poured the marinade over as described in the recipe. I did not simmer the marinade though. I just popped it in the microwave for about a minute or so.

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
I did modify these a bit...no buttermilk so I used plain yogurt instead and I added more cinnamon - almost double. Plus, I added a smidege of pure orange extract. Served with homemade black raspberry-peach jam and strawberry jam and homemade whipped cream. The texture was great and the waffle itself had a nice flavor. With the toppings, it was sublime. The kids sighed with pleasure when they ate it:-)

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Fantastic! I made this recipe and the Quaker recipe to compare. This one was a lot better. I expected them to taste the same or the Quaker recipe to beat this one. I think refrigerating the cookies made a big difference. I made both recipes when it was in the low 80's outside so maybe that's why the Quaker one turned out flat and didn't have the great texture and appearance this recipe had. Both tasted good but I preferred this one because of texture. This one does have more salt and sugar though...

Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
These are fantastic. My family loves these. I always double the recipe and use the batter to make muffin tops. I add pecans and used freshly ground nutmeg. If you've never ground your own nutmeg it tastes much better, a little citrusy almost. I took some into work and my colleagues told me several times how tasty they were.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Simple, relatively healthy, and delicious. Used homemade jam made from berries in our strawberry patch and our black raspberry bushes. Add a bit of Tahitian vanilla bean (the absolute best in my opinion) and you're in heaven with little guilt.

Spicy Chicken and Cilantro Wontons

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
These were fantastic and I have very high expectations for food made at home and in restaurants! I opted for frying them a bit in sesame oil (I preferred the ones that I browned up nicely on both sides) and then steaming in the chicken broth as another poster recommended. We don't deep fry much for health (and taste) reasons. No lemon grass in our big grocery store here in a large city so went ahead without it. Glad I didn't wait to make them until I made it to an Asian grocer. Also, added garlic chili paste (about 2 tsp to the chicken cilantro mix). Oldest son and hubby liked 'em a lot too!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
The kids and husband liked these fine. I thought they were ok, but agree with the reviewer who said to skip the onions. I put them in thinking they would really enhance the dish. They didn't. I'd like a creamier sauce too. I did appreciate no processed ingredients were used.

Carrot Pineapple Cake I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
Very, very good! It was gone very quickly. My daughter decided to take some to the neighbors and they were thrilled. My husband was not so thrilled with the fact that the rest of the cake was gone. It was moist, not too oily, and good. The changes I made were minor: using pecans instead of walnuts and adding vanilla to the frosting. I would add golden raisins soaked in milk and vanilla next time, but I really like raisins in my carrot cake.

Apricot Brown Sugar Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
Easy and tasty. I did change one thing: I used Koop's Arizona Heat Mustard. Gave it a bit of zing. Yum!

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Update: I made this recipe again since there were soo many great reviews. This time it I used store bought eggs - it turned out great. Still cut the butter in the pan by half - 2 T instead of 1/4 cup. Used 1 apple this last time too. The only complaint is that there isn't enough - it seems like there should be more. Maybe the first time I didn't let it sit long enough too... Original review: Good taste, texture was off though. Perhaps it was the farm fresh eggs I used - I tried to use the same size as a typical store egg, but I'm sure it was more egg yolk than the store brands. The batter was very runny and after baking, the texture was kind of clumpy. I also think something more can be done to create a great texture with the butter, sugar, cinnamon, and apples at the bottom. I did add double the apples and halved the butter as several other reviewers did.

Double-Cheese Eggs Benedict

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2007
I just had Eggs Benedict at a wonderful French café (in the U.S.) with a friend for brunch and fell in love with the sauce. This recipe was just like it and is relatively easy. I don't have an egg poacher so I followed the directions in the recipe. Poaching the eggs isn't exactly appealing but it's healthier and I appreciate that. Loved this recipe...try it!

Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2007
Yum!! I added an extra banana and waited to serve it until the chocolate had time to sit a bit. It was wonderful. Just the right thing on a cold day.
