Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2012
Made this for my coworkers and they all loved it. I think I baked them too long, they only needed about 30 mins. I used whole wheat flour and a little less jam than called for. Next time I will use the full amount of jam.

Very tasty! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour with 1 cup AP flour, 3 bananas and made 2 mini loaves. They baked in 45 minutes.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Great recipe to make substitutions - I've used apple sauce instead of oil, splenda instead of sugar and half whole wheat flour, they turn out good each time.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I guess for a brownie recipe made with beans these are pretty good. But I did not like the texture that much. I preferred them cold with icing on top - so that kinda goes against making these a healthy treat.

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
These were definitely quick and easy, they were a hit at work. Other reviewers were right, it is a bit too cake-like, that is probably because of the baking powder. Other than that they were tasty. I subbed about a half cup of whole wheat flour and half cup of Splenda, then I put York bites on top.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
Very easy to make and it baked up nice and crispy - exactly how I like it, but it seemed like it was missing something. I think next time I will add some herbs and spices or even mix crushed garlic into the dough. It made 3 small-ish pizzas, pre-baked it for a few minutes before adding the toppings.

Amish Friendship Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
I'm glad I found this recipe. My co-worker gave me some starter but the recipe that came with it called for instant pudding as well as sugar and I thought that was a bit much (especially since there was so much sugar in the started). For my bread I used 1 cup white flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/3 cup oil, 1/3 cup apple sauce, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup splenda and then I added about 2 cups chopped apple. I am really happy how it turned out! I had to add a little bit of milk because the batter was on the dry side, so the next time I'll use 1 cup white flour and 3/4 cup whole wheat.

Super Easy Chocolate Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
I used margarine and made mini cupcakes (they took about 15 minutes to bake and made about 69 minis). I didn't put anything on top of them and my co-workers and husband loved them!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I made the following changes: used half whole wheat flour and half white, plain low fat yogourt instead on sour cream and I mixed in about 3/4 of a cup of raspberries and saskatoon berries that I had leftover in the freezer. I mixed everything in my food processor and I think it was a little to small for the whole batch, it pretty much pureed the berries into half of the batter so I took it out and kneaded it until the berries were mixed all the way through. I really liked how they turned out, a bit crusty on the outside and moist in the middle. I just realized that I put 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 1/3, must have misread the recipe, I'll definitely make sure to correct that next time since these were pretty sweet.

Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I was really impressed with this recipe, they turned out great! Doubled the recipe and used skim milk and a little of lemon juice instead of buttermilk. Mixed everything in the food processor until just combined. Baked them for 15 minutes.

Easy Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
I'm glad I added blueberries, otherwise these muffins would have not been sweet enough for my taste. I used half white and half whole wheat flour,honey because I didn't have any sugar and finally apple sauce instead of oil. A very easy recipe to make all those substitutions, my favourite part was the texture of the muffins.

Beef Bourguignon II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This is my first time making something like this and I will make it again! I followed the recipe the best I could, I didn't find canned onions (I don't think they exist in my part of the world) and I had a little less than 2lbs of meat. So I added more raw onions, another can of mushrooms and one more carrot. The wine I chose was a reasonably priced real Burgundy. I also served the stew over whole wheat egg noodles. It came out so good, the meat was tender and the gravy was so yummy, I can't wait to have the leftovers.

Scallops with White Wine Sauce II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
It was too lemony for my taste. Next time I'd cut the lemon juice by half and maybe add a bit more wine. Otherwise it was a nice sauce.

Lamb Ribs with Honey and Wine

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I wasn't really impressed. The onion didn't cook entirely so it was too strong, and the rest of the marinade wasn't flavorful enough.

Asian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I will definitely make this again. Used all the ingredients as listed and marinated the tenderloin for over 24 hours. As it was roasting I made the rest of the marinade into a sauce by adding a bit more brown sugar, a tiny bit of flour and simmering it until thickened. It was sweet, savory and just tasty!
