Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
My DH swore with his first bite, I thought maybe he bit his tongue- but no. You know how profanities can slip out in a moment of bliss. Im not kidding, this may have been one of the best dinners I ever cooked. I used soft taco size tortillas (made 6 eggrolls) and served with a lowfat sauce (1 c plain yogurt, dashes of garlic powder, salt, pepper, tbl ranch, tbl mayo, chopped cilantro). Baking was a delicious way to cook these, and I don't think anything was lost except fat. These were just amazing. Had carrot sticks on the side since the sauce was so delicious.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
Pretty good. Not AMAZING, although I think that had to do with me. I had a messy sticky dough and I was stressed out that I was over working it. Some of the other reviewrs said to add more sugar- DO NOT. I did one and a quarter cup sugar and it was really sweet. Tasty, but too sweet for a scone if you ask me. And I used quarter teasp lemon juice instead of cream of tarter. Once the dough was workable I rolled it out into a quarter inch sheet, cut it into rectangles, put a couple fresh rasberries inside and folded it over (potsticker style) and pinched the edges closed. Its really tasty that way. Finished scone was tender even if I did work the dough to death.

Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
These were good! We did half dipped in egg and half dipped in olive oil. The oil ones were better, more 'fried' after baking. The egg ones were fine...but I mashed them into the breadcrumb mix (thinking more coating the better) and they were dry. For dipping we used mustard, BBQ sauce, and ranch.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
I loved these, and so did everyone else. I only had a 8x8 pan which made the edges of my brownies over cooked and the middle a little gooey. But after cutting off the edges these were perfect! Chocolatey, dense, and chewy. The only subsitution I made was 1/2 oil 1/4 applesauce and I added a cup of chocolate chips, which I recomend. Great recipe.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
Wonderful! I have made this bread a dozen times, and it alwasy turns out great. To make it healthier, I used 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup flax seen meal, and 1/2 cup all purpose flour. It was better than ever. I made 2 mini loafs and 6 big muffins. My boyfriend was a lazy banana masher so there were big chunks of banana in it- which turned out great. I will be doing it his way from now on.

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
Awesome frosting! The cake was pretty good too although I will make a couple changes next time. I think I will roast the nuts for more flavor. If you want to add raisins 3/4 cup is plenty. I didnt like the pineapple- if I had a food processor to smooth it out I bet it would have been better. All the guys liked it though.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This will get 5 stars the next time I make it with a few changes. I dont recomend using milk instead of water- I think the increased protien dries it up a bit. I would use water or coffee, hot for extra moisture. Perhaps I just over cooked them slightly too. Keep your eye on em! The flavor was great, they just turned out a bit dry. I loved the chocolate chips in them, and used lower fat Nufchetel cheese, which was great. I sprayed my paper liners and they didnt stick at all.
