New Orleans Fruitcake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
For a slightly healthier version, I substituted half whole wheat, half white flour. Replaced white sugar with mix of succunat and raw sugar. I also used dried fruit for the candied fruit and it worked great, especially since I don't like maraschino cherries.

Honey Oatmeal Chewies

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
Did I miss where the egg was added? I beat egg and added same time as milk. I substituted half the flour w/ whole wheat flour, and instead of shortening, used 1/2 c. butter and 3/4 c. coconut oil. Also, I used sucanat instead of white sugar. Creaming the shortening/sugar doesn't quite come out the same, but the cookies were still great!

Morning Glory Muffins II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I substituted half of the flour with wheat flour, coconut oil instead of vegetable and half of the sugar with unrefined organic sugar. I used a juicer for the carrots & apples to make them more digestable, which after combining juice and pulp amounts to approx. 1 c. each (rather than 1.5 c). Note that the batter is thick and sticky. Also, I added 1/2 c. dried pineapple pieces (soaked for an hr in water then drained) and a tbs of dried orange zest. Muffins turned out great and extremely moist! They also freeze well.

Creamy Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Definitely room for experimentation with this recipe. I used 1/4 c. sugar and 1/4 c. splenda granular for the filling - like other reviews, it depends how sweet your berries are and how sweet you like it. I also added tsp of vanilla and of cinnamon. For crust, I used pastry dough and pressed into bottom of dish, baked until light brown, then added filling. For topping, I used 1/4 c. oatmeal and 1/4 c. flour, and substituted brown sugar instead of regular white. The overall consistency came out more like bread pudding (maybe I added too much flour to the sour cream mixture?), but it was still wonderful!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I'm not familiar w/ making bread, but they still turned out well. I added fiber to the flour and I think this affected the dough. It didn't double in size after I left it to rise for 1.5 hrs, and it was more difficult to knead and roll. Nonetheless, the pretzels turned out quite tasty, but a bit denser and chewier than I think they should have (probably b/c of the added fiber.

Queen Elizabeth Cake I

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I toasted the coconut and almonds for the topping (which I added per earlier recommendation). Otherwise, I made it as given but I felt it was a bit dry and it cooked in less than 25 min when using 2 9x9 pans. Next time I will use more dates and cook in one pan. Very good recipe.

Pretty good, but not great. I added worcheshire and old bay seasoning to add some flavor.

Crab Cakes III

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2006
I used panko bread crumbs which worked great and also added chopped green onion tops and a bit more old bay seasoning. Would recommend 1st beating the egg before adding and mixing crab by hand so you don't breakup the lumps.
