Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
You can't go wrong! These buns are delicious, easy, and FAST! I follow the recipe exactly, except for these changes: 3 cups of whole wheat flour (1 1/2 cups of white flour), honey instead of sugar, and coconut oil instead of butter. I mix and knead by hand, roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thickness, then cut to the desired size of hamburger bun. (I make them smaller than the store-bought buns because who really NEEDS all of that bread?!) I let them rise 30+ minutes on a greased cookie sheet and then bake as directed. They have always turned out PERFECT ... rave reviews all around! We use them for pulled pork, hamburgers, tuna, lunch meat sandwiches, and even peanut butter and jelly! They are healthier, cheaper, and a million times more delicious than anything you'll buy in the store!

Impossible Coconut Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
I was expecting there to be more of a custard consistency and there just wasn't. However, the flavor was good and it could not have been any easier. My 9-year-old whipped this up in the blender while I read him the ingredients. If you are using sweetened coconut, decrease the sugar!

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
I was skeptical, because I don't really like tomato-based soups, but this was EXCELLENT. I followed the directions exactly, aside from adding 1 small zucchini and 2 medium carrots, both diced. We all loved it, even the picky 6-year-old who hates anything "saucy." :) Next time, I might decrease the pasta by a bit.

Southern Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
This is the best potato salad I've ever made! The only changes I make are using red-skinned potatoes (leave skin on) and add a few tablespoons of finely diced onion. We prefer it cold. It's delicious!

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
This is the perfect pesto! I throw everything minus the olive oil into the blender and then drizzle the oil until it's the perfect consistency.

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
I followed the directions , aside from halving the oil, adding 2 teaspoons minced garlic, and doubling the spices. The flavor was great! My only "complaint" is that I felt the potatoes were too distracting. I will decrease the quantity next time.

Salmon With Green Fettuccine

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2012
I did make a lot of changes, but the result was DELICIOUS. I couldn't find spinach fettuccine, so I used whole wheat fettuccine in its place. As many suggested, I sauteed the vegetables first -- 1/2 cup finely diced onion, 2 stalks finely diced celery, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, and 1/2 cup frozen peas. I omitted the mushrooms, as a personal preference. When the onions were translucent, I dumped them into a bowl, and started on the roux. Instead of using milk in addition to the salmon "broth," I used half and half. I was out of white wine, Parmesan, parsley, and dill -- so I left those out. I salted and peppered to taste, then added about 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. I added the salmon and the veggies, mixed to combined, and served over the pasta. It was a HUGE hit. My husband and kids all thought they wouldn't like it, but they all ended up having THIRDS. I will definitely make this again!!!

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
I don't know what possessed me to make clam chowder on a muggy, 85-degree day ... but I am so glad I did! I read a bunch of reviews, promptly forgot them, and ended up following the recipe exactly -- except I totally forgot the vinegar. Anyway, the result was amazing! My three picky kids devoured this. I will definitely make it again!

Hot Milk Sponge Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
I followed the recipe exactly and it was a big hit! I did not make the topping, but served the warm cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of homemade chocolate sauce.

Sausage Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2012
I like this recipe because it is so versatile! Our favorite is bacon-bell pepper-green onion. They keep very well in the fridge for 2-3 days; just heat 40 seconds in microwave for TWO muffins.

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
I hate to give a negative review on such a highly rated recipe, but we did not enjoy these. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used a mix of yellow and green bell pepper (what I had on hand). I thought they were very salty. The ranch is flavor is a bit overpowering, in my opinion. I will not make these again.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2012
This is an awesome recipe to build on. I only gave it 4 stars because it is WAY too sweet if you use 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup honey. It takes it straight into the "super sweet dessert" category in my house, and I like to serve these to my kids as a snack. The changes I make: 2 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cup brown sugar, no wheat germ, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 cup whole wheat flour, no raisins, 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, 1 egg white and 1/2 egg yolk, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup canola oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. We like chocolate chips and almond slivers in ours, but you can really add any dried fruit or nut you like. I used to always bake the full 30 minutes, but I am finding that 20 minutes is PERFECT for a bar that is similar to store-bought texture.

Syracuse Salt Potatoes

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
These were great! Yes, it is a lot of salt, but the result is a buttery, smooth potato with a crispy, salty skin. We didn't serve with butter. They are perfect in their own!

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2012
We really liked these. I have tried other banana pancake recipes with pureed bananas and I definitely prefer the diced! The chocolate chips are absolutely essential. Yummmm!

Mini Mexican Quiches

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
We really liked these. I followed the directions exactly on the crust. It did turn out a little bit greasy, so I may increase the cream cheese and decrease the butter next time to see if that helps. I made four different fillings -- jalapeno cheddar, bacon cheddar, green chili cheddar, and green chili pepper jack. Bacon cheddar was our least favorite. Green chili cheddar (a little bland) and jalapeno cheddar (jalapeno was a little overpowering) tied in the middle. Our favorite was the green chili pepper jack. I cannot imagine using Monterrey Jack cheese; I think they'd be much too bland. My husband mentioned that they should have some sort of dipping sauce, so next time I'll pull out the sour cream and salsa. Thank you for new, unique recipe!

Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Delicious! I did make a few changes. I used half whole wheat flour and added 1/2 teaspoon salt. I also decided to use "buttermilk" instead of regular milk. I combined 1 tablespoon lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda with 3/4 cup milk and let sit about 5 minutes to sour. (If you sub buttermilk or soured milk, you'll definitely want to use 3/4 cup, as it's much thicker than milk.) The result is a moist, light, amazing breakfast cake. I made two and we're having one for dessert and will have one for breakfast tomorrow. Thank you for the great recipe!

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Delicious! I was a little nervous going into this, unsure of how the cream would whip with cream cheese thrown in the mix -- but it turned out wonderful. It was exactly what I wanted. I was afraid it would be too cream cheesy (and did NOT want a cream cheese frosting!). You truly cannot taste the cream cheese at all. It just tastes like fresh whipped cream. I doubled the vanilla and almond extracts, but otherwise kept the recipe as stated. I will make again and again!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This truly is THE best ever banana bread, in my opinion. I have tried a ton of recipes over the years, but now that I have found this one, I will never use anything else! I did make a couple of changes. I used half whole wheat flour and replaced the 1 1/2 cups of white flour with 1 cup of brown sugar (they are still plenty sweet!). I also use "sour milk" (add a splash of vinegar in your 1/3 cup measuring cup, then add milk to the top) instead of buttermilk. Lastly, we prefer muffins over loaves, and this recipe yields 12 "regular-sized" muffins AND 12 mini muffins. Delicious!
