Frozen Strawberry Smoothie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2014
This were a hit but I made some minor alterations to the recipe.I omitted the apple juice because I forgot to pick up some but these did not need it. I also used vanilla greek yogurt because that is what I had on hand. I ended up with 3 popsicles. My younger 2 really liked them and so did I.

Fresh Blueberry Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
My husband isn't a huge blueberry fan and loved this cake. I made it as written but added about a tsp. of vanilla out of habit. I also made this gluten free with gluten free AP flour and xantham gum.

Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
I made these gluten free with gluten free AP flour in place of regular AP flour and the addition of 1/2tsp of xantham gum. I halved the recipe but I shouldn't have because my kids devoured these when I turned around to take a picture. I did not add anything in and don't plan to in the future. They were perfect as is.

Honey Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
My family loved this ice cream! It is very creamy and rich. It has a deeper flavor than your typical vanilla that leads to others guessing what flavor it is. I will be making this again and again.

Whole Grain Spaghetti with Cherry Tomatoes, Marinated Chicken Breast and Pesto

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
We were also a bit disappointed with this recipe and thought it was a bit bland. It was ok but needs to be tweaked a bit to make it better. The only change I made to the recipe was to use gluten free spaghetti.

Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper and Olive Oil

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
Quick and Easy! I have made this dish many times with butter instead of olive oil and it remains a favorite. I did not sauté my parsley. I threw it in with the cheese at the end. I also used gluten free spaghetti. To serve I like to add park and more red pepper and parsley.

Pudding in a Mug

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
This is quick and easy. My family loved it and it was an easy snack to teach my son to make. I used 1oz of semi sweet chocolate chips and they worked perfectly. Half of my family through it into the fridge to cool down and the others ate it warm.

Peanut Butter Cookie in a Mug

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
I made this recipe multiple times for 4 taste testers. The first time I made the recipe as written and cooked on high for 3 minutes. My second son ate it but it was a tad overcooked. Round 2 I added some vanilla and cooked on high for 2 minutes and it was perfectly cooked. A son 1 tried it and said it was weird, with chief complaints about texture. He kept saying it was eggy but when asked said it didn't taste like eggs. I made a couple more for my husband and 3rd son to get their opinion. My youngest son did not like it at all. He only had a couple bites and then tossed the rest. My husband agreed with my oldest that although it tasted ok it had texture issues and was unlike other in a mug treats I have made him... he wasn't a fan of this one. I think adjusting the egg and using the yolk only may help but adjustments are needed to make this 4 or 5 stars.

Cinnamon Vanilla Granola

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2014
I halved the recipe and with minor changes it was a winner with my family. We enjoyed it plain and with yogurt and fresh local blueberries. I used ground flax seed instead of wheat germ to make the granola gluten free. I also used real maple syrup from New York and not the "maple syrup" you typically buy at the store (Aunt Jemima, Log Cabin, etc.) I increased the maple syrup and used 1/2 cup for the half recipe. I baked on a foil lined cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray and gently stirred only once midway through baking. The granola resulted in tons of clumps... the result I was hoping for. I used dried cranberries as the recipe stated but other dried fruit and nuts would be great in this granola recipe. As others have stated an added bonus to this recipe is how great this recipe makes your house smell.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2014
This review is mainly for the rub, it was very good on chicken. If I could eat Salmon I am sure it would have been goon on that as well. Do to medication interactions I could not use grapefruit so I subbed with cucumber instead. I also used red onion instead of green onions because I forgot the green onions. I added a bit of garlic salt and lime to the salsa after initially tasting the salsa and it was perfect. It paired well with the chicken.

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
I made this making a few changes. The biggest was I made this in the crockpot using a just over 3lb pork loin roast cooking for 6 hours on low. I also used chipotle sauce instead of ground chipotle pepper as another reviewer suggested. For the Tomatillo sauce I added the juice of half a lime and couple dashes of garlic salt after trying the sauce as written. I prepared the "sauce" in my hand food processor. I served on warmed corn or flour tortillas and my family enjoyed it.

RITZ Country Fried Ribs with Zesty Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, created by Dinosaur Bar-B-Que

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
My family enjoyed these ribs but I did make a couple minor changes. Instead of dusting with Cajun seasoning after frying I added Cajun seasoning to the Ritz cracker crumb mix. I also used a homemade Cajun seasoning (Simple Cajun Seasoning here on AR) instead of store-bought. The ranch dressing was a favorite of mine and my husband and turned out great using the homemade cajun seasoning.

Quick Almond Flour Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
These were quick and easy and great starter recipe for those looking for a gluten free/paleo pancake alternative. I halved the recipe and only used a pinch of salt. I think more would have been too much. Vanilla extract would be a nice addition and I will try that the next time I make them.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
This recipe is a good base recipe for your holiday leftovers. It can be tweaked to your personal taste which I plan on doing the next time I make it. As written my husband loved the idea behind it and was full of suggestions on how to make it better. One kid ate it no complaints, 2 others picked at their favorite parts and my picky eater wouldn't touch it.

Chia Fresca

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
This is like lemonade with chia seeds. I am looking for different pre run drinks and foods and this may be a new favorite. I need to go run and try it out. I will note I did not measure my lemon juice, just used fresh lemon juice .

Quick Pumpkin Spice Latte

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
I wouldn't call this quick as my husband was quite impatient asking if it was done yet constantly while making this. It takes about 10 minutes or so. I added a dash or two of cloves in and added spice separately instead of pumpkin pie spice. I also used Splenda instead of sugar. It is important to strain or otherwise you will have pumpkin spice sludge in your cup. Overall when all was said and done my husband said this was better than starbucks.

Pumpkin Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
These are delicious waffles. They do need a hair more spice though. I upped the cinnamon to 1 heaping tsp, nutmeg to 1/2tsp and added about a 1/4tsp cloves. My family gobbled these up asking for more.
