Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2013
I tried it using fresh corn cut off the cob (it had been sitting in the fridge way too long). Seemed to work fine! I did add a bit more sugar to try to get the picky kid to eat it - and I used King Arthur "White Whole Wheat" flour. The biggest problem I had is that I don't have a deep fryer and I seem to have lost my instant read thermometer. The oil tasted just slightly off - so I suspect it was a bit old - but they still tasted good! :-)

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
easy and tasty. I imagine I could tweak this to sneak in a few healthy add ins but tasted great as is. I added a bit of nutella because we are crazy about it. :-) Worked fine but probably not worth it (maybe it you used all nutella it would be.

Corn Dogs

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
My son wanted corn dogs. I was prepared to just buy the unhealthy frozen ones but couldn't find any! So I gave this a try. It came out great! I didn't have a deep fryer so I just used a big heavy saucepan. The only thing I'd do different is cut them in half so they'd fit in my pan better! Also I'll play around with different types of healthy hot dogs. Yum!

Super Al's Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Yay! I'll never bother buying cocktail sauce again. I didn't have fresh horseradish so I used the "creamy horseradish" I bought and it worked just great.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
I've been wanting to make these for a while now. This recipe came out very well and seems to be pretty close to what I've had in Vietnamese restaurants! Healthy, tasty and not too hard to make. Plus kids love the rice wrappers which start out sort of like clear plastic discs and turn floppy and elasticy when you dip them in hot water! (bonus - they are only 2 points each on WW) You can use other meat - I used chicken since my husband doesn't eat shrimp. Also cucumber slivers and carrot shreds are sometimes used.

Apple Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
I made this with no red peppers but otherwise more or less as is. I think I used more apple though and a tish more lemon. Yum! I think craisins might be good in it too but haven't played with it. Thanks for the nice and versatile recipe!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
This made a delicious loaf of bread! Very moist, a little difficult to toast but so moist and tasty it is worth it. We added cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg. I also used 1/2 King Arthur "White Whole Wheat" and 1/2 white flour. Tasted great and had a bit more fiber that way. We toasted pecan bits and used those - delicious!!

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Our current favorite pancakes! My stepdaughter, who doesn't usually like whole wheat, loves these. We add vanilla and a bit of cinnamon and/or nutmeg. This time we tried them cutting the liquid to 2 cups as others suggested and that seemed to work well. We use oatmeal instead of wheat germ. I added some pecans to mine this time and loved them. We tried freezing some "mix" (all the dry ingredients). Worked great! But they freeze cooked well too! Yum.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This is a very good waffle recipe if you like classic light inside crip outside waffles! We slightly prefer heartier waffles but these were delicious. Also I used 1/3 King Arthur "White Whole Wheat" and they came out fine. I also added cinnamon and nutmeg.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
I've made these twice now and they've come out well each time. I played around with many of the suggestions people made (adding a bit more honey and butter, using some wheat germ, using oats...) I used all whole wheat pastry flour and oats. The biggest trick seems to be really PUSHING the suckers into the pan. They came out pretty solid. A bit fragile when first cut but since I store them in the freezer once cut they keep great and frankly taste good right out of the freezer. So far they are a hit in lunches too. Yay! Just don't tell my kids they have wheat germ and other "healthy stuff" in them. :-)
