Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
Added a diced sweet potato and left out the sugar. Delicious! Will try baking them as suggested in other reviews, as it was a bit time consuming doing them one by one in the skillet.

Whole wheat double chocolate biscotti

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
TYPO! - forgot the sugar on the ingredients list. Should include 3/4 cup white sugar.

Yummy Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
Great, easy, a crowd pleaser! Doubled the artichokes, added green Pimento-stuffed olives, a finely diced red pepper. Next time will halve the mayo, as it was pretty prominent. Served with fresh baguette.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2013
These are outstanding. For bran muffins, they have a great texture - not mealy like bran muffins can be. Next time I might cut back on the sugar a bit, as they were pretty sweet. The kids loved them - Will definitely make these again.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
Great recipe! They are pretty sweet, but made a nice treat for Xmas morning. Next time I will add some pecans to balance out some of the sweetness. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, baked them in a square pan, and rolled all the filling in the dough - the results were great. Everyone in the family (except my picky 10 yr old) thought they were WAY better than Pillsbury (sorry dough-boy!)

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2012
This is a great pecan pie recipe - everyone around the table rated it 5 stars. Didn't have dark corn syrup so used light and it turned out great - nice caramelly flavor without being sickly sweet. I used the following sweet pastry recipe for the crust - easy and went really nicely with the filling: In food processor, process 1 cup flour with 1 Tbsp sugar. Add 6 Tbsp cold butter. Turn processor on/off six times. With machine on add 2-2 1/2 Tbsp cold water through feed tube, just until dough forms a ball. Press into bottom and sides of pie plate.

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
These were tasty enough, but I found the dough very dry and hard to work with - very crumbly. If I make them again, I would chop up the cranberries a bit, which might help everything stick together more. Not sure I would make again - though I like the combo of the white choc, cranberries and nuts.

Christmas Casserole Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
These are AWESOME! They are super easy (I mixed everything together in the food processor - adding nuts at the very end with a few quick pulses). I waited a few hrs for the cooked mixture to cool and it was super easy to work with. I rolled half in reg sugar and half in icing sugar (for contrast) but i think I prefer the regular sugar (they're so pretty!). My kids normally shun dates, but I told them these were "sugarplums" and they LOVED them. I made them small (one-bite sized), which I will do again. Thanks for sharing this one!

Fudge-Filled Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2012
This one's definitely a keeper - these were an all-around hit with everyone that tried them. They are a bit time consuming, but the cookie dough and the fudge filling are easy to work with - my 8-yr old loved helping. As others have noted, these are quite large when put together, so would recommend making them small (i.e., med-large marble sized). The dough didn't flatten out like in the picture, so next time will flatten more before baking. Also, the cookie is crisper than I expected, even though I purposefully underbaked them. These got even better after a couple of days (if you can keep them around that long!). It makes a good size batch - I boxed a ton up as Xmas gifts, but still had lots for the kids to enjoy (but then, I made them small).

Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Easy and delicious ... with a few alterations: As many of the previous reviews have noted, the recipe needs additional seasoning. I quadrupled the spices (not the salt) and added dried fruit (raisins and chopped apricot) - which is traditionally part of a marrakesh. Near the very end (1/2 hr before serving), added diced zucchini (delish + plus the green adds eye appeal). To serve, topped with lots of chopped fresh coriander and chopped roasted almonds, accompanied by couscous with currants. Served this for a dinner party - was a hit.
