Best 100 Calorie Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
Positives: the flavour is nice, and they are low calorie. Negatives: the texture is very chewy and dense. The "dough" was thick and hard to work with, and I had to add a lot more milk just to be able to get the batter in my pans. The berries burst and created a blackened, sticky mess in my muffin pans. I even used cupcake liners, and my pans were still a nightmare to clean. Overall: disappointed and would not make these again. My kids would not eat them.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs in Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
I did this a little differently, and instead of throwing everything into the oven, I let it simmer on the stove while I prepared and fried the meatballs, and then tossed the meat into the sauce and let it simmer longer until the rice was done. I also used cornstarch to thicken it since I took the stove-top shortcut. I was very skeptical of the sauce, but it turned out fantastic. It was absolutely perfect with the meatballs and served over rice. I've done different recipes before and they were too sweet that even my kids wouldn't eat it. The tomato sauce really mellowed it out.

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
I *love* that you provided directions on starting with a fresh pumpkin and doing it all from scratch. I have also used canned pumpkin, but it's nice to see the full details. The only thing that stops this from being 5 stars is the amount of spice. To me, nutmeg and cloves are too overpowering, and it leaves a lingering taste on the tongue. I would cut them each in half and up the cinnamon. I've also used 6-7 teaspoons "pumpkin pie spice" in place of all the seasonings. Another thing I do is sprinkle shelled pumpkin seeds over the raw batter in the cups just before they go in the oven. And I also frost my muffins with a vanilla icing and add a bit of pumpkin pie spices to it.

Glazed Cinnamon Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Very good! I made a few alterations to the recipe. I added 2 tablespoons of sugar to the dry ingredients. I found that I had to add a couple more tablespoons of butter and milk to the dough. And instead of using white sugar for the filling, I used brown because it's what I normally use for cinnamon rolls. This biscuit recipe alone, without the filling, is fantastic!

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Awesome! I made the dough in the breadmaker. Just skip steps 1 & 2, and start by putting all ingredients in the breadpan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Pick up on step 3 and enjoy! I also replaced 1 1/2 cups of flour with whole wheat all-purpose flour. My husband and 3 year old loved them!

Pineapple Orange Sorbet

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
This was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I are on a diet, so I thought I'd whip up a low calorie dessert for us using my brand new ice cream maker. Instead of sugar, I used Splenda (low calorie sweetener). The Splenda dissolved immediately in the water, so I didn’t boil it. After I puréed the pineapple I mixed in all ingredients including the sugar water, and poured it into my ice cream maker.

Cranapana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2006
The bread would not cook for me. I doubled the time just about, and it was still gooey in the center. Aside from still being raw, it was very dense. I was disappointed that I had to throw everything (time, money, ingredients) in the garbage. The worst part was that I doubled the recipe without trying it first. Maybe it was a problem with my flour. Or maybe there should be salt added to the recipe. I don't think I'll try it again.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2005
Great brownie. It did remind me a bit like a chocolate chip cookie with a taste of caramel from all the brown sugar. Mine didn't turn out to look like that pic (the pic looks more like a fluffy cake)... mine was more dense and a little crispy like a cookie. I have never had a Blonde Brownie before so I can't compare this to anything. It did turn out how I expected it would, and I will make this often. Thanks for the recipe! :P

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
I printed this recipe to use for homemade bruschetta. There is a restaurant here that uses Ciabatta for their Bruschetta, but the loaves are a lot smaller (about the size of my hand spread) and the shape is rectangular. I also bought some in the grocery store and they were the exact same as that restaurant's. I was sucked into this recipe because of how quick and easy it is, but it really didn't taste as "authentic" as the ones I have purchased. I made 4 rectangular loaves and baked it for only 20 minutes. They came out poofier than I expected. I spritzed my loaves every 5 mins as suggested, and they came out with a nice golden crust. The bread was very good. I think I will have to use a recipe that calls for a starter being made the day ahead if I want the taste I am going for. Thank you for the recipe - it really is a nice tasting white bread.

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
I give this a recipe 5 stars because it is the best tasting pizza there is - my husband agrees! Although, I did have to put it under my oven broiler because the cheese wasn't melting and the crust was cooking too fast. I cheated and used my bread machine to make the dough. I had to substitute with fresh oregano (a little less than called for). I added the garlic and oregano last to the bread machine pan. I used a different sauce than the one in the recipe, and we used our own combination of toppings. Next time I will substitute 1 cup of beer in place of the 1 cup water - as another pizza dough recipe I have calls for.

This was pretty good. It could have used more cheese, with a little on top. This is very easy to make.
