Four Cheese Margherita Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
DELICIOUS! I didn't have fontina so I replaced it with additional mozzarella. I used the Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough recipe from this site (prebake for 15 minutes before topping). We have never made a better pizza at home than this. For those who commented on a soggy pizza make sure your tomatoes are roma. They are more firm and "meaty" with less water. Also make sure you are brushing on the marinade and not pouring the whole thing on. You should have marinade left over.

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
A huge hit at the office! This always goes quickly. Even a co-worker who dislikes pumpkin asked for the recipe. I do add 1 egg, use fresh pumpkin when available, then frost using the "Vanilla Glaze" recipe from this site. So far, I've made with spice cake, carrot cake and devil's food cake with a touch of cinnamon. Thank you!

Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Great for Guac lovers! Very similar to the Best Guacamole recipe on this site, but this one uses lime instead of lemon, adds tomato and garlic which I like. If you like guac, you won't be disappointed. If avacados are in season and you want to try it out, go for it! Update: Found that I could replace the onion, garlic and tomato with 3 tablespoons of whatever salsa I have in the fridge (more or less for personal taste). Don't forget the lime is still needed. I skip the salt, but still like to add a little pepper.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This is my first attempt at fondant. All things considered,I think it went very well. I followed the highly rated review using a jar of marshmallow fluff. My fondant covered a Barbie cake for my daughter's birthday. She was tickled pink.

Decorator Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
Initially, I wondered about the amount of butter, but this whipped up nicely and was an excellent compliment to the cut out sugar cookies I frosted. Like others stated, it dries nicely so you can stack cookies but yet they are still soft when eaten. I added a 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract. Delicious and rich.

Oaty Cereal Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Yum! I used Cheerios, natural peanut butter, reduced the sugar slightly, added 3/4 cup oats (both quick or old fashioned will work) and 1/2 cup dried cranberries. I continued to boil the sugar/honey mixture for 30 seconds after it came to a full boil and got a nice bar that stays together without being candy hard. Do not boil the honey/sugar mixture for up to 5 minutes. Doing so creates the "rock hard" and "break your tooth" oaty cereal bars referred to in other reviews.

Rhubarb Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
Excellent! I have frozen some of my rhubarb and look forward to making this for the holidays. I used applesauce in place of the oil. Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the batter and included enough flour in the topping to make it crumbly. I made 1 regular sized loaf and 3 smaller loaves. Freezes well too.

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2009
When I brought eggplant home from a co-worker's garden, I was met with a big grimace. I'm not big on veggies either, but I was determined to give this a try. To mash the microwaved eggplant, I used a hand blender leaving some chunks for texture then baked them on a shiny baking sheet at 350 for 30 minutes, turning over half way through. This recipe reminds me of a vegetarian crab cake and has helped us find a way to eat more veggies. Thank you for an original recipe!

Speedy Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
A great activity to do with the kids! I used 2% milk, so really I have ice milk. I also used rock salt and a large rubbermaid container to contain the ice/salt. No need to crush the ice. After 6 minutes, we have a good solid ice cream. As others suggested, be sure to rinse the ice/salt off the ice cream bag before opening. We've had a great time experimenting with flavors. Besides adding candy and cookies, we've tried...1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cocoa powder, small chunks natural peanut butter, chopped Reeses Pieces (chocolate PB delight)...1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp peppermint, semisweet mini chocolate chips, green food coloring (mint chocolate chip)...1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp cinnamon flavoring, 1 tsp cocoa powder (chocolate cinnamon). Need to try instant coffee granules next!

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
Great recipe for leftover chicken. I use brown rice and make it the night before. First, I saute the onion, then scramble the egg with it and add the remaining ingredients. Just make sure to have them all at the stove...it goes quick. An easy recipe to half if you choose, still using 1 egg.

Strawberry Jam

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
A great recipe to use my strawberries that were a little past ripe. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it boiling quite hot enough on my portable induction unit (trying to conserve heat in the summer) so it didn't set up very well. This is not the fault of the recipe! It still tasted great, and will be excellent over ice cream. I look forward to trying again on the electric stove.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Made these for the office and they were a hit. Followed the recipe to a "T". I used my KitchenAid to mix it all together. When I added the zucchini last, the consistency became completely moist and easy to spread in the pan. Next time, I may substitute 1/4 cup of applesauce for 1/4 cup oil. Delicious!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
A quick and convenient cookie recipe when you want cookies fast! I used only 1 egg and added 1 tsp of vanilla. Instead of adding the suggested oil (more fat and calories), I melted the margarine in the microwave for 1 minute at 50% power. It mixed up great. Then drop by teaspoon fulls onto the baking sheet and flattened slightly with the bottom of a glass coated in sugar. I used a yellow mix with chocolate chips. They were ok. Chocolate Fudge with peanut butter chips were outstanding. Lemon with no chips were like lemon sugar cookies. Next is spice mix with added oats and white chocolate chips, then strawberry with white chocolate chips.

No Commercial Yeast Starter

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I'm two weeks into starting and I've yielded 2 loves of wonderful tangy bread using the "Sourdough Bread III" recipe from this site. I will admit, I wondered how this was all going after week 1. There didn't seem to be much activity, but after doing a search online, I found a sourdough forum. I was comforted knowing I wasn't the only clueless newbie to sourdough bread. The fact that my second loaf turned out well was also confirmation that things are okay. Make sure to use bottled or filtered water. Chlorine from tap water could stop the chemistry. I started with 1/2 cup each flour and water. 2 cups seemed too much when I would only have time to make bread on the weekend. Now I keep in the fridge and 'feed' once a week. Approximately 12 hours before making bread, I take it out of the fridge, feed, and allow it to reach room temp.

Sourdough Bread III

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This sourdough will quickly shoot to the top of most highly rated on this site. It was my first attempt at sourdough and even the youngest member of our house liked it! Crispy on the outside, soft and tender inside. A two pound loaf is a little much for us so I halved the recipe (one half of a tablespoon = 1 and 1/2 teaspoons). It still tasted great. Other than cutting this in half, I followed the recipe to a 'T'. I used the "No Commercial Yeast Starter" from this site. This is the best sourdough...thank you for sharing your award winning recipe Warren!

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
Eat this warm and it's like Heaven. Still good when it cools down too. I wanted to do something different with my ripe bananas. In the first bite, I definitely taste banana. Then I start to feel the smooth chocolate taste each bite after that. The recipe can easily be halved to make 1 loaf. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and 4 small to medium bananas for the one loaf. I'd use 7 bananas for the full recipe. Mini chocolate chips are a must so they don't sink to the bottom. A moist sweet bread that I will definitely make again. Thanks Traci P!

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Quick, easy and delicious. I used 1/4 cup margarine and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of the 3/4 cup margine called for. According to other suggestions, I also used lemon juice instead of water and added 1/2 teaspoon each of vanilla and almond extract. The amount of jam is perfect and more would be too much. I used a small piece of wax paper to help press the mixture into the bottom of the pan. After one hour at work, the pan was half gone and I had requests for the recipe. Try it!

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I made these today when I realized I forgot the buns while shopping. I substituted 2 cups all purpose flour with wheat flour, made the dough in the bread machine and then shaped and baked in the oven. My child doesn't normally like bread, but she asked for more after sampling a bite. Husband loved it too. The conclusions are: 1. These are better than buns bought from the store. 2. This could easily be made as a loaf bread. 3. We're going to use this to make cloverleaf rolls for the holidays.

Banana Muffins I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
What an excellent, guilt free way to use ripe bananas! No alterations needed, but if I made some it would be to add baking soda to the sour cream, then fold into the bananas/sugar/egg, then lightly stir in dry ingredients. This makes for a very light and airy muffin. You could also add 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips. As others have stated, plain yogurt can be used in place of sour cream.
