Best Ever Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2006
I made a perfect batch of popcorn balls for Easter with this recipe! It was quick and easy, and the popcorn balls remained easy to eat even after a couple of days. Not like my memories of practically breaking my teeth on mom's popcorn balls!

Teriyaki Marinade with Ginger and Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
Excellent marinade for beef, chicken or salmon. This last time, I used rice vinegar instead of red wine vinegar, left out the white wine because I didn't have any, and used barley malt instead of honey. This turned out to be quite tasty on the salmon I grilled. Next time I might try molasses, which is pretty similar to barley malt.

Grilled Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
A good way to turn "same ol'" into "sinful." I highly recommend using tablespoons instead of teaspoons for the measurements of peanut butter and jelly. If you're watching fat intake (if you are, why are you eating peanut butter anyway?), you can get good results by leaving out the butter and grill and just popping the sandwich into a toaster oven.

Poor Man's Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
Well, my oldest son is into weird food combinations right now, so he wanted to try this. He loved it, of course! I wasn't a huge fan as is, but I have to confess--if you leave out the onion and pickle (and just have peanut butter and mayonnaise), it is surprisingly good.

Better Peanut Butter Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This is good, especially toasted. I kind of prefer apple butter (you can get it without sugar), but my kids liked this. They also liked having a little extra applesauce on the side to dunk the sandwich in. For those with wheat allergies, this translates well if you are using spelt bread--the spelt bread is able to withstand the extra moisture from the applesauce better than wheat bread.

Ignacio's Super Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This was a big hit served hors d'oeuvres-style to my kids and a bunch of neighborhood kids--I needed something easy and quick. I cut the sandwiches into triangles. The kids loved the novelty of a triple-decker sandwich with a crunchy twist. Most were only able to eat one or two triangles, so this is a pretty filling lunch. This doesn't translate well if you're using spelt bread (for those with wheat allergies)--I found that the spelt bread is just too dense to want to eat three layers of it.

Soy-Peanut Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This recipe is a nice alternative even to alternative peanut butter. As an alternative to sugary peanut butter, I've been getting just plain peanut butter from a grinder in the natural foods section of our grocery store. This recipe is more palatable and doesn't dry out like the peanut-only butter. This definitely gets two thumbs up from me and my kids!

Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This was a fabulously tasty way to cook halibut! My boyfriend made this one. He only cooked two halibut steaks, and did the whole thing in the skillet, using probably 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Even though it was only two steaks, he used all of the other vegetables, all of the pepper instead of half, and cut the tomato into wedges instead of slices. When he served, he just ladled all of the vegetables over the steaks, and it presented beautifully. It was a wonderful dinner!

Homemade Cereal

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This is a wonderful, nutritious and tasty cereal. For my youngest's food allergies, I substituted oat bran for wheat bran, ground up sunflower seeds for the wheat germ (an odd-sounding substitution, but it worked), and about 1/4 cup barley malt instead of brown sugar (I decreased the water a bit to make up for the liquid). This goes great with rice, oat or almond milk--and if you use just enough milk to cover the cereal and microwave it for about 60 seconds, it makes a wonderful hot cereal (really brings out the pecan flavor).

Strawberry, Kiwi, and Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
My spinach-hating kids loved this! I cut the recipe in half, except for the nuts and fruit. I used pine nuts instead of walnuts, since that's what I had lying around, and I also added a handful of raisins. After poking around in it dubiously, torn between foods they adore and a food they despise, each child finally took a bite. The surprised looks on their faces were priceless. This will be a good one to bring to pot lucks or family holiday gatherings (keep the dressing on the side and toss the salad once you get there, though).

Cuban Black Beans I

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
I tried this two ways, both with excellent results. First, I tried as directed, but without the vinegar (the vinegar seemed to be an issue in other reviews of this recipe). This was went very well over basmati rice. Second, I fried the onion and bell peppers in extra virgin olive oil, added the garlic and spices (I left out the vinegar and hot chile peppers because I didn't have the peppers at the time), then I added a large can of black beans (after straining off the liquid in the can). This turned out to be a great base for huevos rancheros--put the beans over a corn tortilla, and top with a fried egg and salsa--yum!

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
I liked this as a kid, but never tried it grilled. Because my youngest has some food allergies, I tried this with spelt bread and almond butter. I tried grilling and using a toaster oven--grilling definitely works better for spelt bread because it's so dense. This was a good breakfast idea, and got even higher reviews when I added a little maple syrup :)

S'mores

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
These are always a great idea! My oldest son's favorite variation is to use a peanut butter cup instead of a chocolate bar.
