Aunt Betty's French Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2003
This was yummy, and very easy to make. Just threw all the ingredients in a mini-chopper. It is sweet though, so if you are not partial to sweet dressings as my father wasn't, then you may not like this one. I loved it and so did most of my guests.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2003
This was easy and tastes great. I think it can also be dipped into dark chocolate (on one end only) for a nicer, richer flavour. But it was nice as is too. It makes very little though (I halved the recipe to try it out)...so if you are making it for a large number of people you may want to double to recipe or you may end up having to bake another "batch". Thanks for the recipe though. This was my first time making biscotti and now I am anxious to try some of the other recipes on this site.

Raggedy Ann Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2003
these were nothing special. they are not very chewy ( i did not over-bake and am storing in airtight container). Also they are way too sweet in my opinion. If you are looking for a coconut cookie then the "chewy coconut cookie" recipe on this site is better and if it's oatmeal cookies you are after there are tonnes of good recipes to use. I won't be making these again.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2003
Yum, yum. I have made this several times so far and everyone always compliments it. It is easy, healthy and keeps well in the fridge. Best of all: you can make soooo many substitutions. Basically put in any legume you like. I like using one can of Lima beans and another can of black beans the most. And for the coriander/cilantro I have so far substitued dried dill (I daresay better than the original...but i love dill in all things) and fresh parsely (but then it becomes very much like tabouleh).However, the dressing is NOT enough and I always at least double everything in the dressing mixture except for the olive oil.

Grammy Burnham's Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2003
These are YUMMMY! I only used about half the amount of oil called for and substituted applesauce for the rest. The molasses adds a great touch. Thanks for posting. These were done at my house in about 48 hours and my family membenrs aree really healthy/light eaters :)

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2003
the flavour of these was great but they hardened up quite a bit for me. They were still nice esp. if dunked into hot tea, but I would have preferred them to stay softer. Anyway, they are nice and gingery but if you are a fan of ginger (like me) you could definitely up the amount of ginger (especially the crystallized or powdered).

Almond Bars II

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2003
these are great and pretty easy to make. Not by any means healthy though. I really couldn't bring myself to use more than 1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter and it turned out really well. This is really sweet though and it's a good thing to cut into really really small pieces.

Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2003
I didn't have much margarine so I only used about 1tbs and used applesauce for the rest. Also, I thought I had a can of cherry pie filling but it was actually raspberry. And I substituted chopped almonds for the pecans. Overall it was quite easy and good. I did find the pie filling to be too sweet so next time I would cut down the sugar in the flour mixture to no more than 1/2 cup. And it was fine with the applesauce substitution for anyone who wants to cut down on the fat. It was pretty yummy. Thanks for posting your recipe

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2003
This was yummy. Here are the changes I made: used about 2 tbsp of margarine instead of 1/2 cup of butter (because I cannot bring myself to do that to my family) and sprayed the glass baking dish with PAM; made my own cornmeal mix (1cup each of cornmeal and flour and 1 tbsp baking powder with 1 tsp salt makes about 300 g, so I mixed this up and used only about 240g which equals 8.5 oz as the recipe had asked for); and finally I substituted egg substitue for the four eggs to make it lighter. It was done in about 20-25 minutes (on account of the glass dish I think...took less than the predicted 30 minutes). It is really nice. YOu have to like onions though because the flavour is very dominant....might try green onions next time. Also if you like something like bacon or ham pieces would probably go really well. Thank you very much for the recipe...Really easy and with my modifications ( I think) healthy enough for me to make it again.

Brown Sugar Pie I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
Easy and really delicious. I think it serves more like 16 people not 8 because this is really rich and I don't think anyone in their right mind would have 1/8th of the pie. I loved this. It sounds like a good idea to have with vanilla ice cream but would likely be too much sweetness. I might add some pecans next time though to see how it turns out. Thanks for the recipe. Wonderful.

Company Chicken Pasta Salad with Grapes

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
I made this with several substitutions: used "So Soya" instead of chicken which I cooked in vegetable broth. Used fat free Miracle Whip, and also all vegetable Radiatore noodles (these are the colourful ones). Also I used red instead of green grapes as they are more nutritious and I wanted to salad to be colourful (i didn't halve them either as they were pretty small). Also, I didn't have the vinegar it asked for so I sub'd apple cider vinegar. I know, basically I came up with my own recipe. But I wouldn't have been able to come up with the combinations on my own as I am not all that creative. Anyway, it was nice. I ate too much of it of course but it tasted really light. This would be better for lunch, especially in the summer time. Oh, well I had it for dinner on a winter night. Good thing we are lucky and were in a warm house. Thanks for the recipe. I will make this again.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
I made these with the applesauce and eggwhite substitution. They have sort of stuck to the papers (which is understandable). They were much easier to remove once they had cooled completely. Also, the applesauce makes them really moist and nice and the raisins and cinammon are a nice touch. I might increase the cin. to 1tsp next time and use oat bran to see how that turns out. I bake a lot at my house and I didn't expect these to be very well received, but out of the dozen i made yesterday, only 3 are left now. They are a nice healthy snack in my opinion.

Pudding Poke Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2003
This was such an easy recipe and sooo yummy. And light tasting. I hate, hate, hate frosting and icing and never use it because I like my cakes lighter. This is a gooey, almost wet-cake that is kind of difficult to serve to guests because it tends to fall apart as you are putting it in the serving dish, but my sister and i basically put the pan in front of us with two spoons and ate ab out a quarter of it. It's best if it's refrigerated for several hours (if you can wait). Also, I did not use any of the recommended sugar and it was sweet enough; I mixed each pudding package separately, first the one pack with the 2 cups of milk and poured the thin pudding into the holes and allowed the cake to sit for about 10 minutes and then mixed the second pudding package with the milk and whipped until firmer...Also, I used only one egg and two egg-whitess and only 1/4 cup of oil (instead of the 1/2) for the cake mix as it said on the box. I used Devil's food cake mix and vanilla pudding for the holes and banana pudding for the top...

Cuban Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2003
This was alright. Nothing spectacular. I used basmati rice and omitted the green pepper (because I did not have any on hand). Also, upon tasting the water and finding it a bit too bland I added a little chilli pepper and black pepper. I think it has too much water because the rice turns mushy. Perhaps I should have used Uncle Ben's rice because that stuff never turns to mush. Oh, well, it's definitely a healthy meal with the beans substituting for the protein and it's easy to make. I might make it again if I am short on time and patience and ingredients.

Easy Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2002
This is soooo good!!! I only used three eggs and the white from the fourth one, substituted 1 cup of 2% yogurt for the sour cream and it came out beautifully. the only problem is that the chocolate chips struck to the pan (but no problem as i ate those separately. Beautiful, it melts in your mouth.
