Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2012
Great pumpkin bread! I used 1 1/2 c applesauce instead of canola oil and water. and added an 8-oz package of dried cranberries, subbed in 1/4 c ground flax seed for 1/4 c flour. DH loves this, wants more. I didn't care for the nutmeg, but that is easily remedied. As stated, this freezes well.

Best of Everything Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
I halved this recipe. My beef-loving famly rates this five stars, stating they like both the taste and the texture of this burger. I used ground flax seed in place of the egg, left out the garlic, cumin, garlic salt, chili powder, and hot sauce. I added a dash of Worcestshire sauce and a generous tablespoon of steak sauce. This mixture was left for two days in the fridge, then shoped and frozen into patties. I pan-fried these in a little olive oil. They were still a little soft, but held together with gentle treatment and were well-liked by all. Next time I'll add some grated carrot and minced celery for a little more flavor and a few more oats to see if I can make a sturdier burger from this recipe. This made four good-sized (probably 6 oz) patties.

Simple to make and a definite banana taste. Made the recipe as written and it made twelve muffins as stated. The muffins were done in 25 minutes.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
I steamed the green beans for several minutes in the microwave, then cooked in the butter over low heat and removed from the pan. I added the other ingredients as specified and mixed them as written. This had a fresh, buttery taste and was a nice note of color on the place.

BLT Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
An easy, cool meal for a hot day. I prefer it without the cheese and with just a touch of mayonnaise.

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
A good, basic fresh salad. I vary it depending on what I have in the house, but it's always good.

Grilled Romaine

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
We were anxious to try this, as we don't always get our Romaine used before it starts to wilt. We used a fresh head of lettuce and grilled as written. Interesting, and the taste isn't bad. We didn't care for the texture of this dish. We might try this again to see if it was our error, but I believe our results were similar to expected results of this dish.

Chocolate Banana Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2012
Wonderful cake when you're in a hurry. I subbed an extra banana for the oil. Frosted the cake with a combo of dry sugar-free banana pudding and fat-free chocolate Cool Whip and kept it refrigerated until ready to serve. I imagine you could do the same with a from-scratch cake.

Chickpea and Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
A good, simple soup. Next time I'll reduce the garlic-personal taste. I omitted the rosemary, added a little celery and carrot to the garlic.

Overnight Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
An easy and inexpensive salad. I had a 12-0z package of "Italian vegetables" and decreased the amount of dressing by 25%. I used the microwave to steam the vegetables (using a pampered chef pan with drainage holes) and cooked the dressing one minute, stirred, then cooked one more minute in the microwave. (1000-watt oven). The dressing was a little thick, but covered the vegetables and kidney beans nicely. I used frozen red pepper, thawed, celery, and a combo of white and purple onion that was already chopped. The dressing is a little too sweet for my taste, thus the 4-star rating. I'll try decreasing the sugar a bit next time, or possibly just a small amount of Splenda to make this a friendly dish for diabetics.

Apple-Spice Hummus Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
A healthy dip with a light peanut butter flavor. The consistency is that of hummus; it takes a little getting used to in a relatively sweet dip.

Redneck Caviar

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
We love this! I used Anaheim peppers for just a touch of warmth. 8/15/12 We continue to love this as an easy, satisfying side dish or snack. This is very easy to prepare, and frozen diced onion and pepper works as well as fresh. The kids love the sweetness of the dish and don't seem to notice that they are eating beans and vegetables.

Four-Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Love this! I use any fresh citrus juice, depending on what fruits I am using, but orange juice brings out the sweetness in most fruits.

Very good-and I am not a real fan of pumpkin. Made this without the crust to make it gluten-free.
