Gluten-Free Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
This is very, very good. It's a little sweet, but that's okay with us. The bake time is way off, though. I have a convection oven which reduces the baking time, but it still took only 25 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe.

Easy Rice Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
For gluten-free bread, this is 5 stars all the way...with some changes. The mix was too dry for me too, I added at least an extra cup of water. I left out the milk powder as we can't have it, worked fine. I baked it 325 degrees in my convection oven for 45 minutes and it was perfect. Even after cooling it's great, with a texture very similar to heavier whole wheat bread, which I love. I am thrilled to have this recipe. Thanks!!!

Homemade Marshmallows I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2008
To the pastry chef who reviewed...try it before reviewing! This recipe is really amazing. It works! You don't need hot water to make the gelatin set, do it according to the recipe. To ensure success, you have to beat the mixture for 10 minutes, at least. I do it in my stand mixer. Also, it makes a huge amount, so I cut it in half. To improve the flavor, I add a pinch of salt and 1 tsp vanilla (for a half-recipe). Thanks for a great corn-free, egg-free recipe for my food-senstive family.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
The flavors are amazing. But -- next time I will reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp. Also, I increased the lime/garlic sauce at the end, and added chicken broth a time or two as my sauce cooked down too much. Finally, I added about a T. sugar as it was too sour for my young kids (and me too for that matter). It was delicious and the sauce was amazing over rice.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
These were very tasty. I had some trouble with the pancakes sticking, but I suspect it was due to the alternate flours I used -- rice flour plus 1 tsp guar gum. Also, to anyone else who thinks substituting oat flour for the rolled oats is a good idea: plan to add 4 cups of liquid!!! Difficulties aside, they were tasty, the kids enjoyed them. Thanks!

Vegan Crepes

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I adapted this recipe in every way possible so that it would also be gluten and soy free...and it worked!! I have longed for crepes and you have made me so happy. Here's what I did: used hemp milk instead of soy (it's thick like soy) used olive oil plus 1/4 tsp salt instead of soy margarine, didn't have turbinado so used brown sugar instead, didn't have maple syrup so used honey, replaced flour with 1 cup gluten-free baking flour plus 1 tsp guar gum. I had to add some water to make it thin enough...cooked on my cast iron skillet, made absolutely beautiful crepes without a hitch. Served with strawberry sauce and they were divine. My family thanks you. Would rate it more than 5 stars if I could.

Chocolate Orange Truffles

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
I could hardly believe it, but it worked: I substituted organic coconut milk for the cream, and organic palm oil shortening for the butter. Added two tablespoons of homemade vanilla extract (it's not as strong as store-bought) instead of the orange flavor: and it all worked. And my dairy-allergic and corn-allergic family can enjoy truffles! I am one happy momma. Thank you, thank you for this forgiving and adaptable recipe!! Now if I can just stop eating them myself...

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Thank you for this delicious recipe! I LOVE the dressing. We can't eat dairy, eggs, or soy, so it's hard to find dressings we can eat. I am thrilled to have this recipe. What a great salad! Left off the cheese, absolutely didn't need it. I'm trying to keep from eating the leftovers but I'm losing the battle...

Swedish Meatballs II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
Loved the meatballs! The sauce sounded like it was going to be bland, so (in the same pan) I sauteed one piece of bacon that I had cut into very small pieces; left it in the pan and added flour, etc to make the sauce. Added chives and plenty of black pepper and salt to received great reviews from my family! Thanks for the recipe that doesn't depend on canned soup (yuck). 5 stars with revisions!!

Casa Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2006
I thought this was simply delicious! So refreshing, tasty, and unusual. I only used about 1/4 tsp salt since mayo is salty enough; and I used the juice of half a lime. The flavors blended perfectly! It was scrumptious as a dip for bread and also as a dressing for pasta. My family loved it.

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
This is a five star recipe -- with the following changes: add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, and italian seasoning. I actually added 2 tsp italian seasoning and 1 tsp pizza seasoning, as we like lots of seasoning. Since we have a toddler, we also chopped the onion fine and processed the tomatoes into smaller bits...she ate it up. Served over brown rice. We all agreed, it was delicious!

Easy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2006
FINALLY a delicious and easy cookie I can make for my dairy allergic daughter. Thanks so much for submitting this recipe! I added an extra tsp. cinnamon and used 1 cup each of whole wheat and all purpose flour. I didn't have enough nuts so I added wheat germ to make up the difference. Next time I will add even more wheat germ for even more nutrition. I also baked these for 20 min. in a 9x13 glass pan for bar cookies. Turned out great!!

Granola Bars III

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
excellent! I didn't have honey, so I substituted 3/4 cup applesauce (I also wanted them a little chewy). I added about 1/3 cup flaxseed too. Used pecans instead of walnuts. Chewy, tasty, and good for you!

Texas Hash

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
This was very good. I reduced the chili powder to 1 T since I was feeding a toddler -- also chopped the veggies, including the tomatoes, very fine. Omitted cheese since daughter is allergic. She really ate it up! As I prepared it, I would rate it a 4 star recipe...but I'm sure including the cheese would have been kicked it up a notch.

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2006
What a dish! I doubled the spices except the garlic and used the juice of an entire lemon, and used chicken stock instead of water/boullion, using enough stock to almost cover chicken. And 30 min. before cook time finished, I stirred in 2 T. cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water. Plenty of sauce for serving with chicken over pasta. And here's a trick: it was REALLY lemony and too sour, so I stirred in almost 2 T sugar. Totally fixed that problem. It was DIVINE!!! Thanks for an awesome, interesting recipe.

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Delicious! I omitted the onion and changed 3/4 tsp italian seasoning to 1 tsp italian seasoning plus 1/2 tsp pizza seasoning. Also I used homemade mayonnaise. It was so good! Even my 2-year-old couldn't get enough of it on her sandwich and carrots.

Orange Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
I really liked this. Made some changes...used 1 1/4 cups orange juice (no water) fresh squeezed; used canola oil instead of margarine; used 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 2 cups all-purpose flour; and 1/4 cup honey instead of sugar. There was no light orange color -- but I suspect the whole wheat flour masked it. Lightly tangy, a hint of orange, made the best french toast I've ever had. Thanks for the recipe!

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Makes rockin' ice cream!!! I used this recipe to make ice cream for my dairy-allergic daughter. Omitted flour so it wouldn't be too think for the ice cream maker. Substituted rice milk for milk, and canola oil for butter. Ran it in food processer when it cooled to make it smooth. It made some of the BEST ice cream I have eaten...and it had no milk or cream in it! So much better than store-bought, I am ecstatic to have found this recipe. Blessings on you Kevin!!!!!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
Delicious and easy! I did make changes..substituted ww flour for 1/2 cup of ap flour; decreased sugar to 1/2 cup; added 1/2 t cinnamon and 1/4 cloves; used canola oil instead of butter (daughter is allergic to dairy) and upped salt to 3/4 t. Also added 1/2 cup pecans chopped fine, and 1/4 cup applesauce since the nuts would make it more dry. Yum, yum, yum!!!!

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
I've been looking for a biscuit recipe that doesn't use hardened shortening/ my daughter doesn't tolerate dairy or soy and we have to use oil for everything. Thanks for the awesome recipe! It's so forgiving, as I made many changes. I used half whole wheat flour and half ap flour; accidentally doubled the sugar; left out the cream of tartar; used 1 teaspoon salt (since I was not using butter); used olive oil instead of butter; used rice milk instead of milk. They turned out tender and delicious. Thanks so much for sharing!
