Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Wow! My husband made it for breakfast today and it was really good. He used homemade whole wheat bread and it worked great. We wondered about melting the cream cheese next time to get a more even spread, 1 inch squares seems like too much for one bite. I also reduced the sugar by half in the sauce and used more blueberries and it was still very sweet...actually I think it needed a dash of salt or maybe some lemon juice to cut through the sweetness a bit, oh yeah, I totally forgot about the butter in the sauce, didn't miss it. Overall an excellent recipe. Its definitely going in the cookbook!

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
I thought this was delicious, easy and healthy! I left out both the jalapeños and the cayenne (because my kids won't eat spicy). That left it a little bland. I added 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper and that wasn't quite enough; another dash of each in the bowl cured it and it was delicious. I used (very chicken looking) pork chops on accident and it still tasted great. To save effort I put the meat and the broth in the blender on low and it shredded the meat for me...very easy.

Fragrant Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
This did not turn out at all! I used chicken breasts, but besides that I followed the recipe. The recipe doesn't specify what type of apple. I used a granny smith and the recipe turned out really sour. No one liked it. I have had lemon chicken in restaurants an the lemon is an accent flavor, the chicken would be good with out it...I think the overwhelming sourness here ruined the recipe. I ended up rinsing everything off and dumping some Alfredo sauce on and it still seemed too sour.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
Wonderful! I skipped the rise time (I think it is usually unnecessary) and we had soft warm pretzels in less than 30 minutes. I also used 3 cups of whole wheat and they were excellent! I used some of the dough to make pigs in a blanket and they were the best we've ever had. A wonderful, versatile, and quick (if you skip the rise time) dough recipe. This one is definitely going in the cookbook!! Thank you Christa.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Try this to make it healthier! Whole wheat (or half wheat if you prefer), light sour cream, and here’s the clencher… white beans! I did ¼ cup butter and ¾ cup white bean puree. This adds fiber, protein and an enzyme that cancels out sugar! With the whole wheat and beans, I up the baking powder by about 30%. It turned out really moist, sweet and just the right blend of dense and fluffy. My favorite method with the white beans is the blender. (Cook up a batch of beans, and throw them in the freezer, they will be ready and easy whenever you need them) Combine all wet ingredients and beans in the blender and blend until smooth. This is definately going in my recipe book!! Thanks

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
some suggestions inspired by others complaints; if the chocolate batter seems too crumbly, add a egg. I did that and the dough handled nicely. Also, to make it faster try this method. I greased my cookie sheet, grabbed a wad of chocolate dough, pressed it down in a circle, placed my (chilled)peanut butter dough ball in the middle, lifted it all off the cookie sheet and let the chocolate dough wrap around the peanut butter-pinching off the excess chocolate dough. From bowl to oven took about 2 minutes, and they turned out great. I also used all whole wheat flour and that worked great too. =)

Cinnamon Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
I thought the texture of these muffins was perfect! Just like from the bakery. I used whole wheat flour and it worked great. I used coconut milk as someone else suggested. omitted the chocolate chips so the flavor was a bit bland, nothing that a tiny bit more salt and some sugar wont cure. I added a simple strussel topping and that helped alot. Heres the recpie if you need one. 1/4 cup brown sugar 3 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons butter mix well, then add 1/3 cup chopped walnuts sprinkle over muffin batter, and bake. Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely make these again.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Yumm!I took a little of everyones advice when I made it, plus I traded 1 cup of multi-grain flakes for rice crispies, that way it has more nutritional value. The end recipe, which I think is just right is: 1c multi grain flakes, 1 1/2c rice, 2c oats, 1/2c coconut, 1/4c flax seed, 1/2c brown sugar, 1/2c karo syrup, 1/3c honey 1/2c peanut butter, 1tsp vanilla 1/8tsp salt. I pressed chocolate chips on top. Thanks for all the great ideas.
