Silky Sweet Potato Puree

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
Whoa. I'd only had sweet potatoe purée/mash once before, with coconut in it, and the texture was really not good and it was too sweet. I really needed another savory dish to go with all the sweet stuff this Thanksgiving, and this was just perfect. Simple, easy, made it 2 days before as suggested. I don't have a food processer bush just used a sort of electric masher, and then a mixer, and it was fine (a few tony chunks but silky enough!) The butter and salt and milk made it oh so lovely, put it in individual cups and topped with roasted pine nuts. It was gone before the pumpkin pie...

Honey Oatmeal Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I'm never making any other bread again. I made this using a bread machine. I soaked the oats in the boiling water, salt, honey, and butter (or oil, if you want to substitute). Then I put in the flour and the yeast. I set it to a standard bread setting, and it has come out flawless every time. My husband said tonight "wow, you must have worked out all of the flaws with bread making in the machine." I smiled and said no, I just found the right recipe. Canola oil can be substituted for butter. This is also the perfect recipe for anyone suffering from IBS. Using white flour and oats can really help the stomach digest unsolluable fiber.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
This is hands down the best recipe period I have ever made as far as meeting my expectations, and not needing any changes. I've put a twist on it by adding banana chuncks and chocolate chips, strawberries, apricots, you name it, we've made it. I make army sized quantities and freeze them pre-cut, so at snack time I just have to take one out of the freezer and microwave it for 30 seconds. My 4-year-old prefers these to store bought- now THAT is saying something!

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I made this cake with mini French plums called mirabelles. The sweetness of the cake complimented the tartness of the fruit nicely. I sprinkled a tiny bit of powdered sugar on the top to take the edge off, but you probably wouldn't have to with red plums and blueberries. I froze this cake immediately, and when I served it thawed, and warmed slightly, it was just lovely. To respond to some reviewers saying that it was bland, I would have to say that yes in a way it is a "plain" cake. But that was what was nice about it. I'm always making spiced cakes etc. but some people don't like cinnamon etc. If you are worried it will be bland, add cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, which compliment both fruits. This cake reminded me of a coffee cake. In fact, substitute sour cream or yogurt for the milk, and it will be even moister!

Cinnamon Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I made this recipe into 24 moist, surprising, lucious cupcakes! I was looking to mix a friend's two dessert favorites for her birthday and found this recipe. The surprise wasn't just for her, though, at her surprise party... guests were mostly pleasantly surprised at the additional flavor of cinnamon in the chocolate cake! I took the advice and cut down the sugar in the recipe and also added a bit more chocolate (I used 1/4 cup powded cocoa and a half tablet of dark chocolate- both unsweetened). Also, who doesn't love a cake that you can frost while still warm?
