Peanut Butter Balls VIII

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
A friend's mom made these when I was a kid, now my daughter LOVES them. I use bran buds. It's easier to roll than the shredded or stick shaped bran. I use a melon ball scoop to help portion out the balls. These also freeze nicely if you don't have a house full of mouths to gobble them up. Nice and sweet, you would never guess by the taste that these are good for you and have better nutritional value than traditional snack food. Perfect recipe "as is." Thank you for sharing Emily!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!
