Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Good but not amazing though I tweaked it a bit to make it healthier. Doubled up the recipe and used whole jar of rasp jam w/seeds (13 oz). For the bottom crust I added 4 tbsp margarine, 1/2 c applesauce, and 1/4 c egg substitute. Ended up being way too much liquid as the bottom was super sticky--I got it pressed into the bottom of the greased pan and baked for 7 min. Don't use too much on the bottom as it comes out pretty thick! I definitely didn't have enough for the topping so I made another topping batch but this time used all margarine so it more crumbly. Next time I'm going to slowly add the applesauce/egg combo until desired consistency is reached. By the way if you are not a huge sweets person a little jam goes a long way. Microwave jar first and then spread. Baked the whole thing for 25 min and it came out perfect!

Dessert Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Delicious, super simple, and a guaranteed crowd pleaser. I was making it for 6 so I used 1/2 roll sugar cookie dough pressed into a 9 in cake pan. Try to make it even and leave a rim for the dough to expand. For the topping, I really wanted to avoid cream cheese yet wanted something more substantial so I used 1/2 c lowfat vanilla yogurt and whipped in 2 heaping spoonfuls of lite whipped topping until smooth. This was airy and creamy without being too sweet. I frosted the cookie and refrigerated overnight and the topping set up really well. I wouldn't put the fruit more than 4 hours before serving bc it can get soggy. I have requests to make this for future birthday parties now!

Cake Mix Cookies IV

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
The taste is really good but I wanted the consistency to be more like a cookie than cake. I bought reduced sugar yellow cake mix that called for the addition of 1 cup of water so it could've been this that changed the texture. I used one box mix with 1/4 c apple sauce, 1/4 cup oil, 2 eggs, and 3/4 c water. Added mini choc chips and baked for 10 min. The cookie is super light, moist, and puffy. Next time I will try it with butter and a different mix.

Ashley's Chicken Katsu with Tonkatsu Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
very easy and tasted just like a restaurant's. Definitely pound thin to ensure even cooking and I just seasoned the chicken thighs with salt and pepper before the flour step. Also the sauce makes way too much and is tart. Here's my recipe for sweeter tonkatsu sauce: 2 tbsp each of ketchup, worcestshire sauce and soy sauce. 1 tbsp hoisin sauce and add about 2 tsp of white sugar to sweeten it up. Boil until sauce thickens and use as a dipping sauce. Overall a lovely recipe.

Blueberry Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
very easy to make and subbed dried cranberries for the blueberries...if you want a sweeter scone definitely add the extra 1/4 cup sugar. Also very sticky batter ( i didn't add extra 1/4 c flour) so made an easy drop scone instead. Watch the baking time as to not overbake

Apple Turnovers

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
Delicious and so easy to make. I used 4 fujji apples, 3/4 c unpacked brown sugar (and still it was a bit too sweet). To make smaller turnovers, I cut each sheet into 9 and diced the apples into smaller pieces. Also use a fork to press the edges, brush with egg wash and cut 3 vents in the top before baking.

Camp Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
too easy and deliciously chewy...the creamed corn is a great addition as the added corn texture makes it that much better. I left out the added sugar since the corn muffin mix had sugar already. Great recipe!

Chickpea and Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
so easy with ingredients already in the pantry. Added chopped celery and needed to simmer longer until they softened. Also instead of pasta, made a side of rice to throw in the soup, subbed dried basil for the rosemary, and used veggie stock.

Baking Mix Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
baking mix always turns out a bit salty so add more sugar accordingly. Also toss the apples in sugar and cinnamon before hand and definitely peel them. I left the peel on due to laziness and it just wasn't the same

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2006
super super easy...used half brown sugar and 1.5 tsp of cinnamon total. Tossed apples in some of the brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon before placing in pan. If crisp looks too dry during baking sprinkle with a bit of water.

Baked Asian-Style Honey Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2006
the BEST recipe for honey soysauce chicken ever. It was so simple..marinated thighs/drumsticks/wings for 3 hours and made extra marinade for basting half way thru. Definitely use foil to line the pan though. Also added a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top..we couldn't get enough of this.

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: May 6, 2006
sooo easy and healthy and the tofu texture came out great! My bf couldn't even tell the difference. I used no boil lasagna noodles, added 1/2 lb ground chicken and mushrooms and only put cheese on top to cut down on fat. A little more salt and pepper and definitely use 1-1.5 jars spaghetti sauce. Great recipe!

Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
these are the best "healthy" cookie i could find and they taste great too! This time around i subbed the shortening with better n peanut butter which worked amazingly. Also used 1/4 c less flour and 1/3 c quick oats to give it some texture. If you are baking with better n peanut butter grease the cookie sheet bc it sticks

very fresh tasting with a kick from the red pepper..and so much healthier than store bought sauce since I used cooking spray in place of the olive oil.
