The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
SO easy! I was skeptical due to the short list of ingredients, but I'm so glad I gave it a shot! The only thing I should mention is that I felt like I had enough batter for two loaves, and so I separated the batter into two pans, and it was the right decision to make. Delicious! ** Made these a second time, several years later, and added a little bit of applesauce (didn't have enough bananas) and a little bit of peanut butter (for flavor and protein). I also used less than half a cup of sugar, they were still plenty sweet. They came out WONDERFULLY.

These were DELICIOUS. I made them and my housemates raved about them. The only thing is that they made WAAAY more than 24! Great recipe, though!

Oatmeal Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
So, for a healthy muffin, this was pretty darn good. Relatively low fat, and some good fiber and protein content. I substituted 2% milk for the half-and-half and used 1/2 cup whole wheat and flour and 1/2 cup of white flour. I also omitted the raisins, nuts, and nutmeg to suit my own tastes. I'm VERY glad someone else mentioned the 350/450 mishap or I might have missed it. I baked them at 350 and they came out just fine--I think 450 would be a mistake. The apples are the best part--next time around, I would use more. The muffins are still moist but could use a little more flavor. I will be making these again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Hamantashen II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
Oh my......these were a HUGE mess that my mother was not happy about, and they didn't taste that good. Instead of pie filling, I used strawberry jam like I've heard works well in this, and some I used chocolate chips. The chocolate chip ones were dry and the jam ones were extremely chewy but the jam saved them. Maybe it was something I did wrong, but I won't be making these again, sorry.

Oatmeal Gems

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
Not bad! Used applesauce for shortening, egg sub + egg whites for eggs, omitted pecans. Compared to other cookie recipes I've tried, this one was a lot of hassle for a taste that was good, but not great. I didn't have any ground cloves, so I had to mash whole cloves myself. I only used about 1/2 tsp of cloves, and I personally thought they were a little overpowering. I think the raisin juice was a good idea, and improved the flavor. I think the next time I make oatmeal raisin cookies I'll use part of this recipe and part of another. If you have time and you don't mind cleaning up the kitchen, and you liek chewy, sweet-spicy cookies, then these are definitely for you.

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...........these were interesting. They spread out A LOT on the cookie sheets and so they weren't the thick, delicious cookies I thought they were going to be. They were thin and sort of crunchy. I think the chocolate chips were the best part. The blender didn't really like having to puree the oats. I probably won't make this again, but the cookies were okay.

Cinnamon Chips Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
These were okay. I didn't like them too much, they were sort of dry. I bought some cinnamon chips to experiment with, and was a bit disappointed by this recipe. They get three stars because my family seemed to like them.

Orange Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
Yum! This was great. I love how it was a bit fluffy, and very light. I used skim milk so this thing was totally guilt-free. Delicious. Will make again.

Orange Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2005
I was a bit disappointed by this recipe. Eating the remains of the batter in the bowl, I was pleased and looked forward to a delicious cake. I doubled the recipe so I would have a layer cake. At 40 minutes, it look more than done but since it said 50-60 minutes I left it in until 50 when I decided that it could not stay in any longer. They seemed dry when I pulled them out, so I frosted the top, put fresh orange slices on, and as one previous critic had mentioned, created a drizzle and put that on. It was good, but definitely could have been removed from the oven at 40 minutes. It was yummy with the frosting, drizzle, and fresh orange slices. Wasn't bad for low fat. Thanks Jackie!

MMMMMMMM!!!!!!! I love this!!! I tweaked it a little to suit my low-fat likings. I made this recipe with 1 cup frozen lowfat yogurt and 1/2 cup of lowfat milk, plus the vanilla, coffee, and cocoa. IT was amazing!!! THANKS A MILLION PINKY!

Party Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
I only had one lemon but was dying for some fresh lemonade and this was perfect. I wasn't so sure at first about the lemon-mashing but it turned out very well. I didn't leave the pulp in when I drank it- was I supposed to? Oh well. I added a little extra sugar and water and this is the best lemonade I have ever had.

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: May 8, 2005
These were incredible-I made them for my mother and family on Mother's Day, did a double batch (which turned out to make about 14 rather than 8) and everyone had more than they had planned. At the end everyone was stuffed because these were sooo amazing! In the batch I used egg substitute, added about 1/4 cup of sugar, and extra cinnamon. They were just delicious. I will be making these again for sure, very soon. Do try!
