Crazy Crust Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
Good pizza crust in a pinch when you don't have yeast. I will make it again but will only use 1 egg (it tasted a bit like an omelette with pizza toppings :)). Also, we were only using cheese so I baked it by itself for ~15 minutes in the preheated oven, then turned it over and put on the toppings. Baking it longer would have probably burned the crust. It did stick but only in one place so I probably just didn't evenly spray the pan. The dough is very batter like before you cook it, but bakes up nicely. Note; if you are making this, don't expect it to be like a store bought or restaurant pizza crust. It's good in its own right but doesn't have the yeasty taste or feel of yeast raised crusts (obviously :)). My husband loved it and might even prefer it over the typical pizza crust.

Pita Chips

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Yum! I used homemade whole wheat pitas (from this site), sprayed them with canola oil cooking spray, and sprinkled on the spices (rather than measuring). Then I sprayed them again to help the spices stick. Dip in homemade hummus - yum!

No Butter Choco-Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
Yummy cookie - you are not going to get the same texture for a cookie when using applesauce instead of butter, but they are still great! One important thing that I have learned when baking with low fat/fat free products is to NOT overstir (like with muffins) - overstirring activates the gluten in the flour and the lack of fat particles in the batter is what leads to a chewy or rubbery cookie. If you mix all your wet ingredients really well and then mix in your flour just until homogenous (I fold it in with a rubber spatula rather than trying to use beaters) it will help the cookie to maintain more of a cookie texture. Hope this helps! :)

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2004
Made this last week - what a great recipe! I didn't have any cream cheese on hand, so I mixed cheddar, mozzarella, and sour cream for the filling. Turned out awesome. Husband was impressed, and we're having it again tonight!

Heather's Healthy Oatmeal Surprises

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2005
These cookies are great. They will stay soft for quite a while (although they rarely last longer than a couple of days at my house!) The last time I made them I ran out of sugar and only ended up using about 1/2 of what was called for - they still turned out great! New additions 7/12/05: I have made these cookies at least 20 times now - I ALWAYS get asked for the recipe. I have adapted the recipe to make it even healthier...I substitute applesauce for 1/2 cup butter (only use 1/4 c. butter) and for the butter I do use, it's blue bonnet light - if you do this I suggest creaming the sugars with the butter and then adding the applesauce, rather than trying to cream them all at once; I also forgot to put in all the eggs one time and they still turned out great, so now I use just the two egg whites and omit the 1 egg. I have also tried this with egg substitute and it's great. I use between 1/2 and 2/3 the amount of sugar called for and it is still plenty sweet. I have also made these into ice cream sandwiches - freeze cookies for ~15-20 minutes after cooked, then put a scoop of ice cream between the bottoms of 2 cookies. Roll in peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, wrap in saran wrap, and refreeze - yum!

Original Chex® Party Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2005
Yum! The classic chex mix - can't get any better! This recipe can be modified in so many ways and it still tastes delicious :) I used club snack sticks broken up instead of bagel chips and used goldfish brand pretzels - just the right size! Also, couldn't find wheat chex at my local grocery store so I just adjusted the others to make up for the loss. Again, yum! :)

Peach Cobbler I

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2005
Yum! I cut this recipe in half and tried to make it a bit healthier :) I used 1T low fat margarine, reduced the sugar in the dry ingredients to half, and did not put any sugar on the peaches. Cooked in an 8x8 square dish for 30 minutes - perfect!

Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
I cheated a little and used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh (needed pizza sauce in a pinch and didn't have many ingredients). This is AWESOME with the canned tomatoes, and I imagine it's even better with fresh - I will be using this again and again!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2006
Yum! The only changes I made were using strawberries (frozen, chopped) instead of the blueberries (what I had on hand) and applesauce instead of the banana. Oh, and I made buttermilk by using 1/4t. lemon juice with the milk (I didn't have any bananas or buttermilk). I used 1/3 c. applesauce for a half recipe and would probably reduce is just a bit next time. These muffins are extremely moist - not chewy like the typical "healthy" muffins :) Awesome and pretty easy to make, and what a wonderful way to use all the healthy stuff I keep on hand! I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could!

No Bake Pumpkin Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2006
Yum! I made this for Thanksgiving last year and forgot to rate it. When I told my husband that I was going to make it again (now that it's pumpkin season) his eyes lit up! :) Delicious, good flavor even with lighter ingredients. I make it with fat free sweetened condensed milk, egg whites or egg substitute, and reduced fat graham cracker crust (when I can find it) - thanks for this great recipe!

Pseudo Sourdough for the Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2005
Great bread! Was a little sweeter than the typical sourdough, but a great bread. I used fat free sour cream and added fresh minced garlic and fresh rosemary to the dough - yum!

Pizza Crust Fantastico

Reviewed: May 20, 2005
YUM! This crust is amazing. I couldn't find corn flour, so I used threw some corn meal in the blender to make it more fine, and used that. The dough (as other reviewers have said) was extremely sticky, almost more like a batter than a dough at first. I added 1/2 cup more each of all purpose and wheat flours, and then added more flour as necessary while kneading to make it smooth. My husband just has sauce and cheese on his half, while I topped mine with sauce, thin sliced roma tomatoes, broccoli, and mozzarella cheese. It was fantastico! :)

Chocolate Spoons

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2005
Yummy :) I make these using spoon molds (I'm not sure where you get them; my mother-in-law gave them to me) and a special kind of chocolate that is used for the molds (higher amount of parafin so that the chocolate hardens and keeps its shape). One note - when making this recipe, make sure you use a high quality (i.e. name brand) of chocolate chips; the store brand doesn't seem to harden back up enough and you end up with a bit of a gooey mess :)

Ground Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
Yummy! I used 4 cans reduced sodium beef broth instead of the boullion (personal preference) and also added 1 can drained green beans, and ~1&1/2 cups each frozen corn and peas. Makes a ton, freezes well, and tastes delicious. Good old fashioned (healthy with the turkey!) vegetable soup.

Hearty Oatmeal Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2005
Lots of texture, very soft, a bit sweet - yum! Good for dipping into some chicken noodle soup or eating plain. I put it in my bread machine and set it for a medium loaf; the bread came out really light and rose up almost over the pan. This is truly one of the best breads I have made with my machine.

Lloyd's Healthy Chicken Zoopa

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
This soup was awesome! I omitted the onion and bell peppers (personal preference) and increased the carrot to ~2 cups. I also cooked the chicken in a skillet with a little lemon pepper. Superb. Husband had 2 and a half bowls!

Smooth Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2005
Yum! I have made this twice and the second time omitted the parsley (I thought it was a bit too strong with it). Top it off with a bit of cheese and serve with a salad and some bread and you have yourself a very nice winter meal :)

Twenty Minute Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2004
These buns were awesome! I sustituted 1/2 wheat flour for a different texture and flavor and it worked out great. I'm sure they would be just as good with all white flour. Heavy, but not too dense. We used them for sloppy joes, and will definitely make them again. Kept well overnight and made for a good peanut butter sandwich for breakfast :)

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
Delicious! 8 minutes still left them a bit pale and chewy, but my husband preferred those to my second batch (~12 minutes) which were more brown and crispy. I liked the second batch better, so it's all in the preference :) UPDATE: These cookies only get better with age! It is rare that cookies make it past a day or two without getting tossed in my house because they become dry, chewy, etc. but these became softer and even more delicious! Almost a sugar cookie consistency but with peanut butter flavor - yum!

Winter Energy Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
These were good, especially for being a healthy cookie :) I didn't have raisins or walnuts so I left them out. Like a lot of others, I reduced the sugar and replaced 1/2 of the butter with unsweetened applesauce. I made the cookies smaller than called for (that way I can eat more of them!). Also, just as a note, I only had blackstrap molasses - the flavor was very strong in these. If I use the blackstrap again I would probably reduce it to 1/2. I would imagine that other types of molasses would work better for this recipe as it covered up the other flavors, and what's the good of adding all those yummy ingredients if you can't taste them?!
