Mom's Fabulous Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
This was awesome. Made as is, with 2 exceptions due to what I had on hand. Used corn instead of peas and used regular milk instead of half and half. It was perfect. I will make again for sure!

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
This was great. Did as others suggested and used half the salt. Also used vinegar and milk to make buttermilk. Topped with a variety of homemade jams and everyone was happy, including the baby who ate 1 1/2 of them!!!

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
This was pretty good. Followed the recipe with the exception of the onion...didn't have one. Also, I don't use white rice only brown so ours was nuttier in flavor and took much longer to cook. The overall result was pretty good. I used an organic bell pepper salsa that wasn't too spicy for my kids. We all agreed that it was pretty good. I may try a few other recipes because although this was perfectly fine, it wasn't quite what I want in the realm of authentic spanish rice. But good, nonetheless.

Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
We really enjoyed this. I used homemade chicken broth & fresh broccoli and as others suggested, two potatoes. Perfect with our stuffed baked potatoes on vegetarian night. Thanks! Oooh, and I added some parmesan and some croutons to make it look fancy!

Healthier Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
This was a winner. Made a few changes based on what i had available, Panko and Provolone instead of whole wheat and mozzerella. It was fantastic.

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
I mostly followed this recipe. I had defrosted ground beef instead of sausage and I'm sure it would have been better with sausage. I also cooked my zucchini a bit in the oven in some water face down as it was the size of a tree and I didn't want it to be too tough. Also, I totally forgot the cheese...not sure how that happened...rough day, I guess. Anyway, it was good and I'll do it again. Thanks for reminding me of such a great way to use those monster zucchini that hide in my garden!

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
I enjoyed this, although it was my gotta use up leftovers in the fridge meal, so I didn't exactly adhere to the recipe. I used corn tortillas soaked in some chicken broth because I find that making a casserole out of flour just gets them too soggy. I picked this recipe to use the ricotta and I'm not sure I enjoyed it in there...it seemed out of place, but again, since I didn't follow the recipe exactly, I'm going to rate on what it would have been, rather than what it was. I added refried beans which competed with the ricotta. Next time I'll use one or the other. Also added some left over fried rice, some fresh garden veggies and the tomatoes and salsa were home canned...like I said...a leftover casserole night. Thanks for the idea!!!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
These are great! I doubled the recipe for 2 dozen and it made even more than that. I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of using white whole wheat flour (its what I had). It probably made them a bit lighter than using regular whole wheat flour. On our way to share them at a playdate!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
This was perfect. Made a double batch and served the neighborhood. Followed the recipe almost exactly, with the exception of using canned tomatoes rather than fresh. Delish!

Easy and Good Honey Mustard Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
We loved this. I didnt measure anything, but used a spicy brown mustard container that was on its way to being empty. Added olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Shook it up until it all blended and we loved it. Thanks for the idea!

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I followed this almost to the letter, with the exception of souring my milk first. I thought that buttermilk would make it better. It was delish! I didn't expect the banana flavor to come through like it did with one banana, but it was a great surprise! Next time I will just beef the recipe up, by adding wheat germ and flax seed, but that is just a preference. Anyway, fantastic!!!

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This was tasty. I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 regular flour, as well as 1/2 white & 1/2 brown sugar. I know it made mine more cake-like, but that was OK with me. I still like my mommas recipe better...but only she can make it that way. In the meantime, this will do just fine. Nice and easy which was great because my 3 year old wanted to help. Thanks!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I'm sure I've rated this before, but we made them again. We always add a few extras that we have on hand. I even used whole wheat flour. I added 1/2 applesauce to give it more juice. Also, my egg was gigantic, which probably helped too. We add: flax seeds, coconut, raw sunflower seeds, whatever we can find. My daughter loves to help and then eat her creation and this is a perfect project for her. She can't overmix it and its great tasting too. Thanks for sharing!

Flounder Zucchini Bundles

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
I'm giving this 4 stars, but mine turned out deserving of only 3 stars. We really loved the flavor of this. I think that a couple of my pieces of fish were too fatty because they all but turned into mush. The ones that stayed together were perfect. I'm pretty sure it was a problem with the fish itself, but I'm not sure. Either way it was a fun recipe and i'm glad I cooked it. Thanks for sharing.

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Quinoa with Peas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
So, I misread the recipe (didn't have on my glasses) and put the cheese in with the peas. So, I am rating on the flavor. I didn't rinse the quinoa first because I thought wet toasted quinoa sounded like a bad idea. The toasting gave it a richer nutty flavor. Thanks for the idea and I will use this technique again. I rated on the flavor since I messed up the cheese. Nice side dish!

Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
This is very very good. I made as is with the exception of the pine nuts. The garbonzo beans were still firm, so there's the crunch I needed. The flavors are very good. I hope to make this again.

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
I rarely give anything 5 stars, but I have to say this was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, which is rare. I even had unsalted butter! I ate 3 of them, which is even more rare. They were so thick going on my griddle, I thought I must've done something wrong, but I pushed them down a bit and they were so light and fluffy, probably 3/4" thick! Yummy in my tummy!
