Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
One of my all time favorites! Definitely use over ripe bananas for this. I also sometimes make something similar but without bread- just heat a mashed banana in a pan for 3-4 minutes, then drizzle with a bit of peanut butter and cook an additional 30 seconds.

Kind of worked, but not as well as I would have liked.

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
Made this for a dinner party and it got rave reviews! I only had 4 oz of neufchatel cheese so I mixed that with 2 oz sour cream and 2 oz. cottage cheese- may not sound great, but once blended it tasted fine. Its actually a great way to lower the fat and calories a bit!

Pastry Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This came out so well! The suggestion on how to add the hot milk to the egg worked like a charm. (I've always been told to "temper" the egg then dump it in an stir- it never works.) Thickened nicely and tasted great. I had intended to use it for a cream puff cake, but that didn't cook right. Instead I used it with vanilla cake to make a trifle- awesome!

Cream Puff Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
Followed the recipe for the crust exactly but it tasted very eggy. Maybe it was because I used fresh eggs? (we have a farm- if you've never had eggs that weren't purchased as a grocery store you don't know how different they are!) Also didn't puff up as much as I hoped it would.

Sheryl's Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
These were great and easy! I had no problem cutting them into slices. I used olive oil instead of butter, as I like it better. I also tucked thinly sliced onion and garlic between the layers- which really helped it fan out nicely. This is a wonderful basic method that could be adapted using different herb, spices, cheeses etc.!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
Very good recipe! Wonderful as is, or with 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to make it a little spicy. I like it chilled with veggies cut into match sticks (broccoli and carrots are good) that have been lightly steamed and then top it with sesame seeds.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
Loved this recipe! Held its color well and became firm but not too dry after a few hours. I really want to try to make a bouquet of sugar cookies using this glaze to decorate them...

Banana Pancakes II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Good recipe! I made them with skim milk rather than buttermilk because it was all I had- they still turned out well! I served them with a little bit of powdered sugar on top and a side of cinnamon applesauce. It was a nice lower fat, lower calorie pancake meal.

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
These are pretty as a gift- but way too much effort to just make for myself. I had trouble getting the "dough" to a point where I could wrap it around the cherries. I had to add extra sugar and pop it in the freezer for a while. I then put the cherries in the freezer for several hours and took them out one at a time (because otherwise they just melted) to dip them.

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
This was so good! I took other reviewers advice and cut the tofu up the night before, squeezed out the water and froze it. I also baked the tofu instead of pan-frying. It came out really well!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I was so excited to try this recipe- they sound so good and look so pretty. I did a test-batch because I was planning to make them for a holiday part- so glad I decided to test them first. They are really gooey and overly sweet. I'm going to try petit fours instead.
