Banana Cake V

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Mmmm! The recipe is excellent as written. I made the following alterations: I used 3 ripe bananas which was about 1 1/2 cup and used all purpose flour since I didn't have cake flour. Replace 1/4 cup white sugar with brown sugar. Replace 1/4 cup butter with unsweetened applesauce. Replace sour cream with plain yogurt. Added 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Tasty...almost like a chocolate chip cookie!

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
I make mine in the microwave. Adding everything but the vanilla and set on High for 30 seconds. Then I just stir until it is all smooth and add the vanilla. Depending on what you are using this with, you can be creative. Use different extracts or white chocolate. Perfect glaze for the "Too Much Chocolate Cake" from this site.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
I have made this a few times in the last month and get rave reviews every time. To make it a little "lighter" I use sugar free pudding, replace 1/2 cup oil with 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, and use low fat sour cream or plain yogurt. Topped with the Satiny Chocolate Glaze recipe from this site and you have a dense, rich awesome treat! The favorite flavor combinations have been Devils food cake/chocolate pudding/peanut butter chips followed by Chocolate cake (+2 tsp peppermint extract)/chocolate pudding/mint chocolate chips.

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Excellent bars that can be customized to anyone's taste. I used honey in place of the corn syrup, smooth PB, rolled oats, and added sesame seeds, 1/3 cup each of wheat germ and mini choco chips (after the sugar, honey, pb was mixed in or the chips will melt). I omitted the raisins. Honestly, I thought it was almost too sweet. But I can see where adding dried fruit and/or chopped nuts may help cut back on the sweetness. Next time I'll try adding walnuts and dried cranberries or apricots. Husband and child both loved them.

Six Can Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Husband gave the thumbs up and says save this recipe! Based on other reviews, I used 1 can chicken broth + 1 can water and 1 can of cream of chicken soup. Also added, salt, pepper,garlic salt, and cumin to taste and threw in almost any bean we had in the house. We practically scooped it up with tortilla chips. Kind of like a warm salsa. A hearty and filling meal.

Bar Cookies from Cake Mix

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
An easy recipe to whip up for surprise events, but it seemed too sugary sweet. I used 1/3 cup water and omitted the nuts due to personal preference. I can see why others added the dried cranberries. Maybe the tartness from the cranberries would offset the sugar. I would make this again if in a pinch to put something together.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
Very easy to make and the house smelled wonderful while it was baking. I made this so a co-worker with Celiac disease could enjoy. The entire department gobbled it up with powdered sugar and sliced strawberries. Caution: do not flour the pan if you are making this for someone with a gluten intolerance. Try cocoa powder or skip dusting all together. I don't have a full size food processor, but a mini prep. After processing the beans and eggs, I dumped into a larger bowl and used a hand mixer to add the remaining ingredients. Very moist and chocolaty!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
A great icing to go with the Best Rolled Sugar Cookies recipe from this site. I found I always need more milk to get the right consistency. One batch of icing frosts about 22 cookies that are 3-4 inchs and dries in a couple of hours. Using applesauce cups, I divide the batch into thirds and make three different colors. The pictures on this site provide a lot of inspiration!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
My Mom lost her famous "Christmas cut outs" cookie recipe when she downsized ten years ago. I made these along with the Sugar Cookie Icing recipe from this site and thought they tasted just like Mom's. The moment of truth came when I took them home for Easter. After one bite, Mom asked if it was her recipe. Turns out it's not (hers used powdered sugar), but it was close enough to fool the woman who made them for 30 years! The only change made was I doubled the vanilla to 2 teaspoons. The dough sat in the fridge for a few nights (only overnight is necessary), and I divided the dough into quarters as I rolled it out and cut the shapes. I also used parchment paper on the cookie sheets. Great recipe!

Miniature Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
A great dessert to have in the freezer for drop in guests! I've used pecan sandies and Girl Scout shortbread cookies for the base, both with good results. I would also recommend the following variations...omit the nutmeg, double the vanilla, add 1 tsp lemon juice, use 1/3 less fat cream chese to cut down on calories (not fat free). Use foil baking cups, or spray with non-stick cooking oil and place directly in muffin pan.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Bravo to all the creative members for their reviews and photos! I learned that anyone's favorite dessert can be replicated with cake balls. I've done chocolate covered strawberries with strawberry cake/strawberries and cream frosting and dark chocolate coating. I've done "Thin Mints" with milk chocolate cake/milk chocolate frosting/3 tsp peppermint extract and Andes mint chips as the coating. My next experiment will be lemon cake/lemon frosting and vanilla coating for the lemon lover in the family and a german chocolate cake ball. The fridge has been my friend through each of the steps. Let it be yours too.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I made this in my bread machine on the dough cycle. My husband and I tested it before dinner and half of it was gone in minutes. He says "keep this recipe!" I followed the recommendations of Baricat (thanks!) and used milk as the liquid, omitted the garlic, doubled the basil, and sprinkled with cheese half way through baking. I added a little romano cheese to the mozarella, parmesan mix which gave a beautiful golden brown color. I didn't have fresh basil for the top, but delicious none the less.

Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
Great alternative snack to crackers and chips. I took the advice of other reviewers and did a dry roast (no olive oil) and seasoned with garlic salt and salt after it was taken out of the oven. I cooked 20 min at 350 and 15 min at 450. Some chickpeas were soft a few others were crunchy. I'll need to play around with this until they are all crunchy.

Italian Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
I have an Italian co-worker who makes the most amazing cookies for the holiday potluck. She calls them "love knots" and I covet them. This recipe is so close that I'm calling it a match. I can't tell my co-worker...I'm afraid I could end up with concrete shoes in the bottom of the river! The dough is very soft so I set it in the fridge for 30 minutes and used a Pampered Chef small scoop to form the cookies (approx 1 tablespoon), then placed on parchment paper. They did not spread much so 2 inches apart is more than sufficient. These cookies are not golden (until you lift them off the pan). They are done when they don't look wet/shiny. Make sure to allow the cookies to rest for 5 minutes before removing them from the pan. You won't be disappointed! I ended up with just over 50 small rounded cookies.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
This is my second favorite bread machine recipe. I replaced one cup of all-purpose flour with wheat flour and it was wonderful. I also used olive oil in place of the margarine. It seemed to need more salt when I did this. Will try with margarine next time.

Easy Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
There's no excuse to pay $$$ to buy iced cappuccino anymore! I use a simple one cup method where I place the coffee and sugar free coffee flavoring in the glass first and swirl around to dissolve and then add milk. No water or additional sugar is needed. A squirt of chocolate syrup can add a the right touch if you are looking for something more.

Cinnamon-Raisin Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
I used to make a microwave granola, but this is so much better, just as fast, and easier. It needs more cinnamon...2 teaspoons was good. I added 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (roasted and salted), 1/3 cup wheat germ, and 1/4 cup sesame seeds. I skipped the raisins, but cranberries and white chocolate sound excellent. Baked in a roasting pan and stirred every 5 minutes. That was probably overkill, but I wanted to make sure it didn't burn. Perfect by itself, with yogurt, or my personal favorite...on top of Cheerios.

Cinnamon Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
This recipe gets 5 stars for taste, but I had to give it 3 stars because of the mess. I was hoping the cinnamon/sugar coating would dissolve and become something like a candy coating over the popcorn. Instead it turned out to be a granular coating. Pretty much like cinnamon/sugar sprinkled over toast. I had to hide this from my toddler or we would have had a real mess in the house!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
Great comfort food. I halved the recipe and rolled the biscuits flat then cut into strips so it wouldn't be doughy. The biscuits were added 1-1/2 hours before served and they did very well. Even my toddler liked the tender chicken and yummy dumplings. Quick and easy. I will make this again.
