Sweet and Tangy Sauteed Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Tip below. First let me say, this was really, really great. It was what I love best - the sweet and the sour - about having my greens with chow chow, but all in one simple dish. I used pure maple syrup instead of honey, because of taste preference; otherwise, I made this just as it was written. Tip: salt the greens and let them weep out their bitterness for about 30 min - 1 hour before cooking. Just be sure to rinse off the salt and then give the them a good squeeze. This will also help you fit them into the pan without have to wilt them in batches.

Pumpkin Wheat Honey Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
Try chocolate! This muffin recipe is great with chocolate chips. Rather than the 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 nuts, I used a whole cup of chocolate chips. I never thought chocolate and pumpkin sounded good together and then I tried it at a party...yum! I came to this recipe with the specific hope of finding something I could modify for chocolate chips. :) Also, coconut oil in place of vegetable oil and maple syrup instead of honey both make great replacements. I decided to try them as they are the ingredients I keep on hand. Lastly, I've used flour and whole wheat flour. Both turn out well, just different. As would be expected, the whole wheat just has a heartier taste.

Blueberry Dump Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
So good. So easy. So versatile; my local grocer had a sale on raspberries, so I did part raspberries, part blueberries and it was really good. In comparison to all desserts, this is not the best I've ever had, but it deserves 5 stars b/c of how good it is for such little effort.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Great! And here's a tip. I cut the Brussel sprouts in half, stirring them every 7 minutes, and they were done in 21 min. My family really enjoys this simple recipe.

Toddler Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Great recipe. Can easily be modified for what one has in the house. Both of my kids (and me!) loved them. We ate one every day for breakfast, until they were gone, and never grew tired of them. Very moist - my 10 mos old, could eat small bits I pinched off for him. Here's the substitutions I've tried so far. I used canned pumpkin puree instead of baby food. B/c that isn't quite as liquid-y as baby food, I used only one carrot and added a small zucchini (b/c it's moist), grated. I've also used milled flax seed instead of oat bran. Thanks!

Southern Baked Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
I echo what other reviewers have said. I was skeptical about this recipe, thinking it might be bland. I tried it anyway b/c my husband doesn't like cheese and I was craving squash casserole. It was so good! Some recipes have a wow factor and this, IMO, isn't a wow kinda dish...I mean, it's squash. The simplicity of taste and ease of making is what earned it a 5 stars from me. Also, I think this would taste great as a main dish, if lump crab meat or oysters where added.

Grammy's Overnight Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Really simple. So, so easy. Made hosting a dinner party stress free. Added basic Italian sausage seasoning (see below) to the meat; big plus. Might have been a bit plain without that. Making it again right now! TIP: Add the jar of marinara sauce to the beef then dump the 3/4 cup water into the jar and swish it around before adding it to the meat mixture, to get the remaining sauce out. Seasoning: 1 tsp paprika, 2 tsp dried parsley, 1 tsp dried minced onion, 1 tsp garlic powder (or 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced), and 1 tsp crushed dried fennel seeds. Can also add dried pepper flakes if you like heat.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Thought this was good but lacked the tang. I agree with others that the sauce is too thin. I dissolved about 1/2 cup cornstarch in 1/2 cup vinegar and added it at the end, with the crockpot on high. That gave the thickness and tang I was looking for. Also, FYI, I used skinless, bone-in chicken thighs and it was so great.

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
Simple directions. Followed them exactly as written and cookies turned out great. Used Hershey's Cocoa "Specialty Dark" powder - really yummy! Thanks for the recipe. Been making these since I was a kid, but thought this way was easier than how I learned to make them.
