Seminary Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2014
I only made a few changes. I didn't have any applesauce so I used apple butter, I used 4 bananas because I had 4 turning black (3 would have been enough),I was low on brown sugar so I used 1/4c. brown sugar and 1/2c. white sugar, and lastly I used 1/2c. white flour and 1/2c. whole wheat flour. I wouldn't exactly call these "healthy" but they sure are yummy :) I probably could have used less sugar, especially since I used apple butter...next time I will only use 1/2c. of sugar. I made a mix of oatmeal, shredded coconut, and chopped walnuts, and sprinkled it (sparingly) over the tops of the muffins before I baked them. Really nice recipe, I'll make this one again! Yielded 16 regular sized muffins for me.

Buche de Noel

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2013
I followed the recipe exactly and my cake turned out beautifully. I was worried that the filling was not sweet enough, but after the cake was completely constructed it tasted plenty sweet. I would recommend greasing your pan and parchment...I did not, and although I was able to remove the parchment paper, it was a very delicate and scary process. I made my cake 2 days before serving it and kept it in the fridge, wrapped up tight in plastic wrap. Before serving I covered the cake with the remaining filling and used a fork to rake "bark" lines and then heavily dusted with powdered sugar. I'll post a picture. Thank you for this recipe!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2013
We love this chicken so much I make it nearly once a week. I follow the recipe exactly except I use light ranch dressing. I would like to state that using fresh rosemary really makes a big difference...I do use dried sometimes, but it's always way better when I use fresh. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it's so good and I plug it into my weekly menus all the time :)

Soft Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
Thank you for submitting this recipe. This was the first time I tried a recipe that had not been rated and I sure am glad I did. These cookies are soft, chewy and so, so delicious. If you love the combination of coconut and dark chocolate you should make a batch of these, stat! I followed the recipe as written except I added the yogurt to the wet ingredients, instead of at the end, and I used quick cook oats. You may be tempted to add more chocolate chips but don't, otherwise you will end up with too many mix-ins and not enough dough to hold the cookies together. These are a decadent treat.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2013
Love, Love, Love these! I make them all the time, and especially like to eat a steamy bowl of these spicy beans with a piece of pita bread for lunch. I do change the recipe a little, although it is good as written. I sweat my onions in olive oil (1.5 T) for about 8-10 minutes, until they are slightly softened but not fully cooked. While those sweat I rinse a can of black beans thoroughly (leave the beans in the can and just keep adding water until it drains clear). Once beans are clean add enough broth (whatever kind you have) to fill the can back up. When onions are just barely starting to brown add 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp cayenne, and cilantro (which I increase to 1/3c. chopped), cook for another minute and then add your can of beans in broth. Bring mixture to a simmer and allow to simmer until liquid is cooked down to a desired consistency, about 10 minutes(leave 'em soupier if you want to soak up the broth with bread, or cook 'em longer to make them creamier if you want to use them as a side dish), add more salt to taste if needed. I serve with a little fresh chopped cilantro on top. These are truly the best black beans ever!

Chicken Saagwala

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2013
I have made this recipe a number of times and my husband and I both love it. I follow the recipe exactly, except I add 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of ground pepper, in with the other spices, and I double the spinach. I've also made this vegetarian before with mushrooms and paneer (the paneer was made with a recipe from this site). When modifying the recipe just make sure to add liquid to replace the liquid you would get from the chicken. I browned sliced mushrooms with the onions, then continued following the recipe and added the spices, garlic, ginger, and tomato paste. At this point I began adding vegetable broth and continued to do so as needed until the mixture had simmered for 10 minutes (this is important, just add enough so your mixture can simmer and bubble softly, not too much that it's really soupy, but enough that it doesn't burn and stick to the pan), then I added the spinach, let it wilt a minute, then added the yogurt, milk, and paneer. Brought the mixture back up to a simmer and let it simmer for another 10 minutes. I also should note that this dish is quite spicy; halve the pepper if you don't like the heat. To make this taste a little more Thai use coconut milk instead of skim.

Kristi's Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2013
Excellent. I halved the recipe and used 6 ears of corn, but I think 5 would have been plenty. Using corn cut from the cob is really gonna give you best corn flavor. I will definitely make this again.

Irresistible Healthy Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
These are excellent! I halved the recipe. I only had ground Oregano so I only used about a teaspoon, maybe a tad more, but a whole tablespoon would have been way too much...otherwise I made it exactly as written. Oh, except my local Kroger didn't have Cremini mushrooms so I just used extra buttons. The flavor is very good, both my husband and I couldn't believe there was no meat. Next time I will make a full batch and freeze them for lunches. This recipe is a keeper! Oh, beware, these were a tad too spicy for my husband, so if you have a wimpy palette go easy on the crushed red pepper (half it, don't omit it)...and use fresh basil, it really makes the flavors pop.

Rich Yogurt Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
Best Waffles Ever!!! I have tried so many waffle recipes and waffle mixes and this one is my favorite, hands down. I only tried this recipe because I had a tub of yogurt that was about to expire and boy, am I glad I did. Following other reviewers suggestions, I substituted 1/4c. oil instead of shortening. Also, because I only had plain yogurt I added 1 tsp of vanilla and 1 tbsp of honey. The batter came together beautifully. These waffles took longer to cook than most other waffles I've made, about 4.5-5 minutes. They are so tasty and rich, yet light and fluffy. Thank you so much for this recipe, it's exactly what I've been looking for! Perfect waffles!
