Lemon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
I followed the recipe to the letter, but these were horrible. They were very dense. Cupcakes did not go well with the lemon whip cream, which was good.

Black Bean Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
This is a 5 star recipe, it is just written incorrectly. I smashed the beans with a potato masher and added mayo, sour cream, chiles, cilantro, chili powder, garlic powder and a drop of pepper sauce (mine is extra spicy). DO NOT add the olive oil and salt! Mixed it all well and put it in the refrigerator. I didn't make my own tortillas, just used some bagged tortilla chips. VERY VERY good. I didn't add the picante sauce either and it had a perfect texture! But I am not a picante fan. This dip is not very salty at all, if you don't add the salt, but is perfect with salted tortilla chips. So if you go with low salt tortilla chips, you might want to add 1/2 tsp of salt or so. Thanks dramstad! Very yummy recipe

Peanut Butter Honey Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
VERY good! Just like a recipe I had many years ago and lost. Be careful what kind of honey you use. I suggest wildflower versus clover which has a much lighter flavor. I used store bought clover honey and it really did overpower the balls. But it seems to overpower everything. Thanks for the great recipe!

Banana Pudding II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Excellent! I made my in the microwave... Took less than 10 minutes (but I may have a fast microwave). I read someone else had done it that way, too, but there were no instructions. I looked at a recipe for rice pudding and some of the ingredients were very similar, so I just followed that. Beat eggs, add milk, sugar, cornstarch and salt. Mix well. Microwave on high (in a microwavable dish - I use an 8 cup pyrex measuring dish because this does bubble up) for 2 minutes, stir and then nuke at 50% stirring every 2 minutes until it thickens. Mine only took about 6 minutes... It will take almost double the time if you double it. Thank you Vette!

Peanut Butter Cereal O's

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Ok, EVERYONE in my family loved these! From my 1 year old to 17 year old and even my husband. These were quickly devoured. I just wish I had more cheerios and marshmallows to make a batch right now. Will definitely be making these again and again. I thought they were so much better than rice krispie treats.... which can scrape your mouth, and the peanut butter kick was perfect. You can dress these up with candies and chocolate, but I thought it was perfect just as written. Great treat to sneak protein and whole grains into!

Candy Cane Cooler

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
This was SO GOOD! I doubled the recipe and used 4 thin candy canes. There are different sized candy canes, so I'd probably add 1 or 2 more because I really like minty, but it was good just as it was. My 3 year old and 16 month old slurped theirs down like no tomorrow. For the person who complained about it not staying cool for 10 minutes, our drinks barely lasted 5 minutes, so I wouldn't know. My 16 month old, literally just kept sucking it down until it was gone and I gave him about 6 oz. I also had no problems with candy cane pieces. I blended the milk and candy canes first and then put the ice cream on top so the candy canes were forced to be totally crushed. No one found a piece larger than a poppy seed.

Banana Anna

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
My 16 month old LOVES this recipe. He has it EVERY morning and drinks the whole recipe by himself. Most of the time we don't add the nutmeg. Thank goodness my 4 year old doesn't care! It is an excellent substitute if you are trying to wean!

I thought it was too sweet. But, that is my preference. Just cut back on the brown sugar. Thanks!

Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
Delicious! I don't like to use a whole lot of oil either, but didn't have applesauce, so I used 1 - 4 oz jar of pears and 1/2 a 4 oz jar of apples, bananas and pears baby food and 1/4 cup of canola oil. I made 3 5x3 loaves and a 9 inch loaf pan. The 3 are for gifts, but I'm not sure my family will let them get there! Thanks Tanja!

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I used what I had on hand which was fresh cooked chicken, a bag of corn, 2 cans of mild rotel, 2 cans of black beans and 2 cans of chicken broth. My friend is gluten intolerant, so as much as I wanted to add cream of chicken soup, I didn't. I did add 2 teaspoons of cumin and 1/2 tsp of garlic salt. Threw it all in the crockpot on low for about 3 hours. This was excellent! Not too much broth at all! My whole family and guest loved it! Couldn't believe how simple and easy! Definitely will become a staple!

Peanut Treats

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
I followed the directions exactly except for 2 things. First I pulsed my nuts in a food processor. I did it until they were fairly fine with chunks. I would suggest only processing them briefly to get them roughly chopped. If the nuts are too small, you have a ton of fine nuts at the bottom of your pan. However, having them chopped up some helps to prevent them getting stuck to the pan. The other thing I did was used two 8 inch bread pans, as I don't have an 11x7. These are awesome and my family can't stay away from them. Thank goodness they are a cinch to make!

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
This was a GREAT recipe! I filled my crock pot with washed apples (mounding a little), then peeled and cored them. Threw them in my food processor batch by batch. I added a little more cinnamon and cloves (because I like them a lot). Let them sit for 1 hour and then cooked for 1 hour on high, then cooked on low overnight (about 13 hours - I slept in). I used a whisk to smooth it out and then let it cook for about another hour uncovered. This was perfect. Those of you who are cutting the sugar, you are going to have problems getting your butter to thicken. Sugar helps it to gel properly. Sugar water turns into a syrup and thickens as it heats. Processed for 10 minutes and we have delicious apple butter for us and family and friends (I have a 6 quart crock pot, used honeycrisp apples), and this made about 9 cups of apple butter! Definitely will be making more! 10/4/11 Ok, I've made 4 batches of this now. This is literally the best recipe I have ever tried. Using 1 cup of brown sugar for one of the cups of white sugar makes it much richer. I have never had a problem with just whisking it to smoothness at the end (and I've used red delicious). Also if you want a lot of apple butter for gifts or self. Call your local orchard and ask about 2nds or windfall apples that you pick off the ground. I purchased 2 bushels for $10 (88 pounds of apples). Hence the 4 batches. Let me tell you this is better than slaving over a stove ALL day! TASTES SO GOOD!

Creamy Cinnamon Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
I just made this and it is absolutely divine! I can't wait to taste it tomorrow when it has been refrigerated. I used coconut oil instead of butter, so no need for vanilla. Added a yummy accent. I also misread the directions. I added the sugar before the milk and rice mixture simmered. Everything turned out fine. Thank you so much! Definitely worth the time. Excuse me while I go back to my warm pudding!

Banana Shake

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
Overall good taste, but I thought it was VERY sweet. Could be because I had overripe bananas. My almost 2 year old didn't care for it, possibly because of the sweetness. He likes plain yogurt by itself, so he may not be the best judge for children's tastes

Fabulous Homemade Bread

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This is a fabulous recipe. I bake a LOT of bread. Whole wheat, white, you name it I've probably tried to bake it. This recipe is so versatile. I've substituted molasses with a little sugar, honey, extra wheat flour, extra oats, flax seed, I think you get the idea. The one trick I have discovered with bread making is to use cooking spray to roll out your dough. The more flour you add, the tougher it gets, so I make my dough in my bosch and when it comes off the side while "kneading", I put the still sticky dough in the oiled bowl, let it rise and dump it out on a sprayed board and roll it out and up into loaves. PERFECT every time!

Marinated Cherry Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2006
This was VERY good. I used raw organic apple cider vinegar, about 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil and kept everything else the same. We loved it! My husband who has heartburn and doesn't go for a second helping of tomatoes went for thirds! Thanks!

Honey Butter

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
We absolutely loved this. Tasted just like the honey butter we get at Texas Roadhouse. I softened my butter by nuking it 5 seconds on each side in a small mixing bowl. Then I whipped it and added the honey (wildflower) and a little bit of cinnamon. Thank you very much!

Irish Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2006
These cookies turned out o.k. but not much flavor. I had to add about 1/4 cup of water to make it hold together and it took 9 minutes in my oven.

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
Very good recipe. I found it to be sweet, but then I substituted All bran cereal for the bran (which the cereal is sweet) and a can of well drained crushed pineapple for the carrots (I was out of bran and did not feel like grating 2 cups of carrots!). I also forgot the baking soda, but the muffins turned out - a little extra moist- but good nevertheless. My 11 year old son absolutely loves these, and would eat the whole batch if he could for a meal. If I were to do the recipe again, I would probably cut the brown sugar in half and remember the baking soda, so the muffins would rise. Also, I got 24 muffins out the recipe, but I'm not complaining! The more the merrier!

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
The smell was bad and it tasted smoky sweet when it finally finished cooking. I followed the directions exactly... I will not be making this again.
