Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
AMAZING!!! Great way to use up all the zucchini from the garden. I have been making double batches and freezing them. I do use 1/2 whole wheat flour and I ran out of oil on my last batch and substituted in some melted butter. Next time I have applesauce I will substitute for some of the oil. I have also added a mashed banana and in one loaf I add a handful of chocolate chips for the kids. Everyone loves it.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
I followed others reviews and used 3 large carrots, 3 celery stalks, 26 oz diced tomatoes, 7 cups of home made chicken stock in place of water, balsamic vinegar,scaled down the olive oil, and added cumin and ground cayenne pepper, and with all my soups I splash a dry white wine in as well. I also pureed probably 1/2 of it and it blended all the flavors together! AMAZING. I am just adding a handful of frozen spinach to each bowl when I have it as to not get it all slimy. My five year old daughter is taking bites and saying "yum" with every bite. Then you know it's good!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
I have made these twice, and both times they came out perfect! I found that softening the butter as other reviewers had suggested and using two eggs, as well as mixing on low speed has kept the batter from getting crumbly. Cook exactly 8 minutes, and cool on sheet pan exactly 3 minutes, and you have a perfect cookie. I found if you make them too big they won't cook all the way through, so smaller is better.

I baked these at 350 degrees for an hour due to the chicken I was cooking as well. I loved the crispy outer leaves. This will be my go to recipe for brussel sprouts.

No Bake Peanut Butter Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
I just served this for Thanksgiving and the word "phenomenal" was used more than once. I took the opportunity to make two different crusts to see if one went over better. I made a nutterbutter crust put real hot fudge on it before putting in filling and topped with chopped peanutbutter cups and swirled hot fudge. I also made and oreo crust and topped with crushed oreos. I think it was just people's preference as to what they liked more, but tasting them both I wouldn't recommend one over the other, they were both amazing. I followed other reviewers and only used 3/4 of the cool whip other than that followed the recipe exactly. I am sure this will be requested at all family gatherings from now on.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
My children were begging for these for DESSERT after dinner! I doubled the recipe and ended up using 4 medium bananas, I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, and 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown. I also substituted the yogurt for milk. The batter was a bit thick and I had a few spoonfuls of sour cream that I added as well. Baked for 23 minutes and made 38 muffins with double batch. Perfect for freezing and popping in the microwave in the morning for a healthy breakfast.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
I followed the directions to make my own taco seasoning, added a couple of splashes of light cream at the end, cooked on the stovetop, and pureed up a couple of ladles fulls (picky kids complain if there are too many veggies). Pretty tasty, a little spicy, but good for me. I am excited to add cheese and dip in some tortilla chips.

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
My husband said " yum, these taste like banana bread" and my daughter gobbled them up (with a few added chocolate chips in hers). I followed the recipe exactly and added 1/2 cup of homemade applesauce, cinnamon and nutmeg. These were delicious and so healthy.

Creamy Chicken on Linguine

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
This was delicious! I used 1.5Lbs of thin sliced chicken tenders, 1/2 of a large sweet onion, substituted the bouillon and water for 1/2 cup of chicken broth, used 2 cups of light cream and to make the sauce thick I whisked together 2Tbls of water with 1 Tbl of flour and whisked into the sauce and cooked until bubbly and thickened. I seasoned the chicken before cooking with salt, pepper, and mixed Italian seasonings. I also steamed broccoli in chicken broth and added to the pasta with chicken before topping with the sauce. I omitted the green onions since I didn't have any and used fresh shredded Parmesan. cheese. Will be making this again for sure!!!

Autumn Pork Roast

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
This was very moist and I prepared it as written with homemade applesauce. I probably won't be making it again as it was too sweet for myself and my husband's taste.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Fantastic and so easy! I followed other reviews and used 1 cup milk and 1 cup light cream, used two stalks of celery and not only the florets of the broccoli but the stalks as well, and a splash of dry white wine while the veggies were getting tender. I also only pureed 1/2 of the veggie mix and mashed the other 1/2 in the pan with a potato masher, the result was a great consistency that wasn't too chunky or too smooth. My 3 year old daughter gobbled it up!!! This will become a staple for sure in our house.

Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
I just made this tonight to serve with a spinach and tortellini soup, my family LOVED it!!! This will become a staple for us, my girls 3+5 were asking for more and my hubby went back for thirds! The flavor was great, and the texture as well not flaky or dry at all. I was out of honey so substituted with light corn syrup, not too sweet at all.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
So moist and delicious. I did as others suggested and used 1/4 cup veg oil, 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce and 1/2 cup of melted butter instead of 1 cup of veg oil. I also added chocolate chips to one loaf, and walnuts to another, and topped the last one with cinnamon+sugar butter mixture. I also reduced white sugar to 2 cups and used one cup of brown sugar as well, and also 1/2 of the flour as whole wheat. Will be making this again and again.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
This came out fantastic...i prefer to make my own crust (1 cup crushed graham crackers, 1/2 cup toasted and then ground pecans, sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie seasoning and 1/4 cup melted butter). It layered beautifully(mine was not quite as dramatic as the pictures because I used homemade pumpkin puree and wasn't so orange, but tasted great.) I cooked it a bit longer and used a water bath, didn't crack. Topped with store bought caramel icecream topping. Perfect.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

This is a family favorite, I add a splash of dry white wine towards the end of cooking, and I steam broccoli and puree it and also add it towards the end...adds a great flavor, and I usually use milk.
