These are so amazing - soft, fluffy, light. I made 36 small dinner rolls, and no one could stop eating them. Please try!

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I like curry, I like honey, I like mustard, I like chicken.... this was not very good. While it wasn't inedible, it had a pungent flavor that didn't work for us. When you consider the calorie content of butter vs. sour cream I think I'll stick wtih my creamy honey mustard chicken recipe. I couldn't help but think this recipe was a waste of very expensive organic free range chicken breasts.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
These were great, very tasty and are really good for school lunches. One suggestion would be to watch the size, I made the mistake of making them too big and ended up with gigantic cookies. I also used chocolate buttons, and they were nice. My cookies were a bit cakey and not firm, but I think this could be due to the fact they were too big. I have another batch in the oven that are smaller so will see how these do.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
My review isn't really a reflection of the actual recipe but I think this recipe allows for the ideas to flow! I didn't have any kidney beans or sweet potatoes, so I used a mix of baked beans and chickpeas and mashed potatoes. I had not soy sauce, so left that out as well. Anyhow, I made homemade tortillas, and a roasted corn, tomatoe and onion salsa to serve the burritos with. A big dollop of sour cream, and you have one of the most CHEAPEST meals ever! With my homemade tortillas, and homegrown corn and tomatoes, this cost $3 for the WHOLE meal!! Very good too

Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Remember that the type of cocoa powder you use will determine the "darkness". If you use a dark cocoa powder, you'll get a more chocolatey taste and darker appearance. Also, an organic dark cocoa powder actually gives it a much cleaner, brighter taste.

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
This is definitely a good base recipe, and hope to make often. However, it can be tweaked to make it, outstanding. I didn't have any wheat flour, so used 3 1/2 C plain white to no ill-effect. Also no oil, so just used marg, and it these still turned out very crispy (would still recommend olive oil though) I would recommend using more salt, as I did a control batch with 1 tsp and they definitely tasted very bland. Try using bolder flavors like Parmesan cheese to give it a real kick and take it over the edge. I am trying a onion marmalade and parmesan cheese combo - delicious! (Just dont' use as much water) Next time, I plan to use sun dried tomatoes, olives and fresh basil. Also, Tony's is really nice too. However, I reiterate the point, these need to be "over flavored" to be just "tasty" as a finished product - it's like the flavor bakes out of them.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
Using canned tomatoes, and tomate paste give this a bolder, more thangy flavour that I think chickpeas need, as they can tend to be more creamy/nuttier and lend themselves well to the tangy thick richness of a tomatoe paste vs. soup. Also, make sure you watch your ingredients that have too many additives (like the soup) as these additives really take away from the clean, refreshing simplicity this dish embodies. It's also full of digestible protein and most little kids love it!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
SOO easy! I won't ever buy quick mix pancakes. I put everything into my food processor and it's done! From start to finish, I have freshly made pancakes in 15mins. My 5 year old asks for them all the time! I use oil for the shortening and makes it even easier!

Naan

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This is so easy, and makes really cheap meals like Lentil and Chickpea curry seem so much luxurious. I always serve my curries with a selection of chutneys and mint yoghurt sauce.

Army SOS Creamed Ground Beef

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This is good, if you like beef gravy. Personally I think there are better things to do with ground beef. However, just a few revisions. Add 3 garlic cloves and try Miso Soup paste instead of Beef Buillon. Miso Soup Paste is LOADED with flavor and all natural - no chemicals!! It really does add real depth to this dish.

English Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
This is a good recipe, however proper English trifle is made with custard and not vanilla pudding. It really does change the taste. You can use canned fruit and mix with fresh fruit, and custard. Pour sherry over your sponge for a real classic Sherry Trifle - or try amaretto, which is good too.

Chicago Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
My husband loves this dip. Instead of serving it with bread, I serve it with plain corn chips. The salty, crunchy texture of the chips has a great taste with the cool blend of flavors. Additionally, I use all seasoning salt and a bit of garlic powder, and a touch of Tony's for a bit of pow! Additionally, I use fat free sourcream, and just a touch of mayo to blend. You could use a mix of, ff sourcream, plain yoghurt and a touch of mayo to blend. All in all a great recipe.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
I forgot to rate this one - but my gosh. This is a fabulous recipe and so easy to adapt. I was suppose to take it to a cook out, but my husband and I kept taking itty bitty bits waiting to go and ended up eating the whole thing. I had to make another batch to take for my sister-in-law to try the next day. Great summer salad and accompaniment to any summer cookout!

Apple Butter Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2005
I love this recipe, and have reviewed, but just realized recently this was meant for pork loin chops. I actually use this with whole roasts. Bone-in, or loin rolls. I adjust the apple juice to suit the size, and basically bath the roast in apple juice while baking. Also, in my neck of the woods, apple butter is not available. I use about 1 whole cup of apple sauce, and bake it as suggested. I turn the roast using tongs (don't pierce the meat with a fork while cooking) and turn it in this delicious sauce. One suggestion would be to use a tart juice, pref. organic, as some of the sweeter additive juices can make the meat very sweet. The balance between tart juice and sweet sauce are spectacular. Cooking this for Christmas tomorrow, and looking forward the usual and expected rave reviews!!

Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2005
The best thing about this soup is how easy it is to make. The second thing, is the taste. It's very delicious and satisfying for such a simple recipe. However, keep in mind, this soup is based solely on the broth or beef stock you're using. Expensive doesn't always = the best. The best beef stock or broth to use, is the one you're familar with and like the best according to your tastes. I find canned broth or stock to be not for my tastes, so I used OXO cubes, about 8 cubes, some Worch. sauce, and a bit of beef extract paste mixed with boiling water. This gave the flavor dimensions a very solid, rich taste. I didn't use the sherry or Thyme (I don't like Thyme) but suspect a full-bodied sherry would have been a nice addition. Try adding a splash of red wine when adding the beef broth !

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
This crust is amazing! I just didn't believe that it would be as good as everyone is saying, but is exactly like a pizzeria pizza! I doubled the mixture, then made 16 individual portion pizzas I topped them with cheese, ham, pepper, pineapple, onion and a tangy base sauce of ketchup, tomato paste and spicy tomato relish. Boy! These were excellent, and so economical - ended up costing me about 30 cents a pizza. I laid them on cookie sheets and froze, then place in layers in an airtight storage container.

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
Just what I was looking for - simply, easy and delicious ! I cooked for a little less time, and only used just under a pound of meat. I added corn, sweet potatoe and pasta spirals, but didn't add the celery or cornstarch. Next time I will add rice, or perhaps soaked wild rice instead of the pasta. Good filler up, and can modify to suit. Was great even without alot of meat, but good to fill up on vegies if watching your weight.

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: May 10, 2004
I loved how cheap and easy this dessert was. It tasted quite well too. My husband, mother-in-law and her friend thought it was delicious. I didnt use the sugar as suggested, and it was very sweet without it. Look forward to the lowfat version of this - oh, and the cheap Walmart brand cookies and pudding mix work great! A fantastic pudding for $3!

Simple BBQ Ribs

Reviewed: May 2, 2004
Boiling the ribs really do make them tender, but I found my ribs lost some of the flavor in the cooking. Next time I may to rub them in something before I cook them - but the reviews are right, beautiful tender, falling off the bone meat are results to expect. I used KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce, but found it was a bit sweet, I made up my own mix, with some BBQ sauce, yellow mustard, ketchup, garlic powder, garlic salt and pepper, and some left over cooking juice. As it cooked, it got nice and thick, lovely tangy flavor. Good recipe
