Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
YUM!! This was so good - rich and creamy and totally satisfying. However, you must cut the brown sugar and butter in half, otherwise it will be sickly sweet and greasy.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
Yum, these were great - light and fluffy. I added a splash of vanilla. It doesn't make much; you'll probably want to double it.

Garlic and Onion Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Nice, juicy and flavorful. Not spectacular, but very good. I used part ground beef, part ground chicken, and seasoned salt instead of regular.

Grilled Zucchini and Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
This was quite good. I used 1 T. of olive oil instead of the frightful amount of butter called for and added a 4 oz. can of mushrooms. That really jazzed it up. The kids still wouldn't touch zucchini but hubby and I enjoyed it.

Apple Cake IV

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Wow!!! This cake is amazing. Light, fluffy, flavorful - everything you'd want in a cake. I cut the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and replaced 1/2 the oil for applesauce. Cut the apples and don't skimp on the beating time. You'll get a winner.

Dee's Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
This was a really good rice dish that even my non-rice eaters liked. I used chili powder instead of the red pepper, and used about 12 oz. of crushed tomatoes instead of the fresh tomatoes and ketchup.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
These cookies were really good! The family loved them. I made them as bars, so I was able to use oil instead of butter. I also substituted 1/2 c. of the white sugar with brown, and used half white chocolate chips and half regular. Be careful not to overbake, these need to be soft.

Mushroom Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
This was disappointing. It sounded great, but came our really bland, despite the onion and two garlic cloves that I added. When I heated up leftovers I added 1/2 c. of red wine and more soup mix, and that helped,but I won't be making this again.

Honey Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I found these mediocre. I used frozen baby carrots and boiled them for ten minutes before baking. I left out the MSG (why on earth would anyone add that to their food when we should be avoiding it like the plague?!) and cut the 3 T. butter to 1 T. olive oil.

Orzo with Mushrooms and Walnuts

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
This orzo is excellent - easy yet elegant. It can be a tad bland though, so I was heavy-handed with the salt, and also added garlic powder and parsley. I over-toasted the walnuts by mistake (about 15 minutes) and they were actually wonderfully crunchy.

Almond Sole Fillets

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I found this rather bland and boring. Like others, I toasted the almonds in the oven with oil spray and then baked it at 350 for half an hour.

Honey Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
This gets five stars for flavor. However, for some reason, my cake didn't rise properly and came out as gooey bars - it's happened to me before so it's probably my oven and not the recipe, but I can't rate the texture. I was out of orange juice so I used tropical nectar, it was a great twist.

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
This was an intriguing and delicious dish. I used whole chicken pieces, so I cooked it for a lot longer both alone and once mixed with the other ingredients (if I'd do that again, I'd cook the sweet potato for half the time so it doesn't get mushy). I also added about 2 c. of chopped pumpkin along with the sweet potato, and used a sweet chili sauce instead of hot sauce. Since I used extra veggies, this was great all on it's own.

Mom's Best Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
This was good, but not spectacular. I read a lot of reviews. Some complained that it was too runny, so instead of tomato juice I used tomato paste mixed with a bit of water. Others said it was bland so I added 1 tsp. each of black pepper and garlic powder. Lastly, I made 1.5 time the glaze. Those changes all helped, but the final product was still tasty but not incredible.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Excellent - creamy, sweet comfort food. I mixed the egg and milk in a separate bowl, then added a few spoons of the rice mixture and mixed it in, before adding it all to the pot. This prevents your egg from scrambling. I also added a dash each of cinnamon and nutmeg to give it additional flavor.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
My family went nuts over these, but I found them a bit dry. Next time I'll use only 2.5 cups of oats. I also followed other reviewers' advice and used 1.5 c. of flour, 1 tsp. baking soda and cut the salt to 1/2 tsp.

Quinoa with Asian Flavors

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
I made this recipe with bulgur (I find the two grains almost interchangeable) and my family loved it. I sauted an onion and two cloves of garlic before toasting the bulgur and then omitted the garlic powder. Simple and delicious.

Sweet Grilled Peaches

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
Grilled peaches sounded strange, but we loved these. We used fresh peaches, placed them flesh down on the grill. We left them there for 6 minutes, then turned over, drizzled with the honey and cinnamon, and grilled an additional 5 minutes. They were great.

Iced Coffee Slush

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
WOW - this deserves ten stars. Here in Israel, all the cafes sell this amazing iced coffee that has a Slurpee consistency. For years I've been trying to replicate it at home, but with no success. With this recipe, I can do it. Make the coffee according to the directions, but cut the sugar to 1 c. Freeze. Half an hour before you need it, take it out of the freezer. Once it's softened just a tad, use a spoon or knife to break half of the mixture into chunks. Put them into a blender. Add 1 cup of milk and 2 heaping tablespoons chocolate milk powder (or sugar if you're a coffee purist). For an adult only crowd, you can use a good swig of chocolate and/or coffee liquor. Blend until no chunks remain. You will get the smoothest, frostiest, most incredible iced coffee that you can eat with a spoon. My entire family went nuts over this one!!! Thanks Iola - I'll be making this all summer.

Dutch Babies II

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
These were interesting, but the texture was far too eggy for me. If you do make them, add 1 tsp. vanilla, a dash of cinnamon and 1-2 tsp. sugar.
