Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
This appears to be a very versatile recipe. I was out of margarine so I used half butter flavored Crisco and half plain Crisco. I also only used 4 bananas instead of 6. I put in the fridge overnight just as I do with pumpkin bread. This is delicious!!

Barley and Mushrooms with Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
Love it! I followed many of the other suggestions. I cooked the barley first in chicken broth istead of veggie broth. Then I set it aside and cooked the veggies and substitued water chesnuts for celery. Once the veggies were done and I added them to the barley at the same time as the white beans. Then I let them all warm up together and added some salt and pepper. It was enjoyed by everyone at our table!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
This is amazing! I use it nearly every day. I really like oregano so I put in a little extra and I think that makes it even better. Everyone should try this recipe at least once! I also gave it as gifts at Christmas and everyone who got one loved it too.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
I served this at Christmas for about 20 people. It was very popular with adults and kids. I started with chopped onions, carrots and celery like previous reviewers. I also used: - 1% milk instead of heavy cream. - Uncle Ben's Whole Grain & Wild Rice, Mushroom Recipe. - 100% whole wheat flour. I added additional salt & pepper before serving. This will definitely be something I make again and again. It scales beautifully to feed a crowd.

Fresh Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
I used fresh sweet cherries, whole-wheat flour and no shortening. I omitted the white sugar completely, and it turned out plenty sweet. I did add cinnamon as suggested, and it was a nice touch. This recipe does make far too much topping. We probably had nearly an inch on top of the fruit. I served it warm with vanilla ice cream. It was well received.

Southern Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
Used half white and half shitake mushrooms, little more than two cups. Sauteed onions for a couple of minutes, then added mushrooms, then added two cloves of pressed garlic at the end. Added about 1/4 C. of whole-wheat flour to absorb the butter. Stir and cook for a couple of minutes. Added 2 C. water with chicken bouillon. Stir and let thicken some. Added 2 C. fat-free half and half Stir and let thicken until you like the consistency. Add salt and pepper. (It will need it.) I served it with toasted pita bread. YUM.
