Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2014
Very nice mild curry. Added broccoli and used 2 T of sucanat rather than white sugar. It was plenty sweet for us, next time I'll cut it to 1 T.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2014
Let me start by saying I don't really care for steak, so covering it in cheese and other goodness was sort of a brilliant idea to me. I couldn't find filet mignon at our commissary anywhere so I went with 4 strip steaks and they worked fine. Everyone really loved this. Except me. I mean the toppings were tasty and all but the steak still tasted just like... well, steak. I didn't think the marinade did much for it. On the upside, I left two of the steaks in the marinade overnight and cooked them today, sliced thin and had steak salad for lunch. That was superb. I might make again.

Millet Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2013
These were really good! I noticed that the ingredients list said "millet" but the directions said "millet flour." I chose not to grind my millet, because I soaked my batter for about 8 hours to break down phytates and figured the millet would be soft enough to eat that way. It still added a nice crunch, somewhat reminiscent of a cornbread muffin. In fact these tasted a lot like corn muffins to me. But since I love corn muffins, it didn't bother me a bit! Will definitely make again - a good way to use millet! My only change was using coconut oil instead of canola.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2013
I was low on chicken and completely forgot to get the tomatillos so had to make a few tweaks. I used fresh tomatoes and frozen corn, skipped the sautéing step and just put everything in the pot to cook. Added green pepper, green onion, and the tail end of a jar of regular salsa. Since I had very little meat, I added a can of black beans in addition to the white beans. Next time I would mash the white beans to thicken the soup and then leave the black beans whole. Served with sour cream and cheese. The kiddos loved it and are looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow!

Dee's Dark Chocolate Granola

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
Really good! I soaked my oatmeal for optimal nutrition so just had to change a few things. Doubled the recipe and soaked it in about 3/4 c. water with a generous splash of lemon juice and about 1 T. of whole wheat flour. Used sucanat in place of sugar (and used about 1/2 the amount) and real butter. Due to the soaking, I baked this at a low temp for about 45 minutes to crisp it up, and actually mistakenly almost burned it. We still enjoyed it, even extra toasty, and will add it to the breakfast rotation. Thanks!

Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
This was nice, even though I changed a lot. I'm not a beef lover at all, so not too well versed in cooking it. I bought a very thin sirloin and sliced thin strips. To me it was still a bit tough, but like I said, I don't really know how to cook beef well. I made a homemade hoisin sauce to replace the oyster sauce (horrific experience with cooking with oyster sauce. Shudder. Never again). I got it off of chinese.food.com and it was very tasty with this. I also used chicken broth instead of sherry (I don't keep any on hand). Subbed arrowroot for cornstarch, coconut oil for canola, and sucanat for sugar. Added red bell pepper. I can say that this is the first time I've made a stir fry that I'll definitely make again!

Austrian Pancake

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
I didn't think my kids would go for this due to the custard-y texture but they each gobbled down two wedges, and that's saying something since they're all still five and under! Glad the hubby was already gone for work, because between me and my 3 oldest boys we ate the whole thing. :) Baby sat on my lap and longingly wished he was big enough for solids. 'Nuff said.

Jan's Fruity Cream Cheese Danish

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
Yum! The whole family enjoyed these immensely. I made homemade crescent roll dough (Golden Crescent Rolls, from this site). I altered it to be whole wheat, and I soaked my dough for optimal nutrition. Because this made so much dough, I mixed two blocks of cream cheese with a bit of sugar (didn't measure, just did it to our less-sweet tastes). I divided the dough into four portions, rolled and spread with cream cheese, and cut each log into about 12 mini cinnamon-roll-type buns. I indented them and filled with different flavors of Polaner's fruit-only jam. To my surprise the filling stayed in nicely and did not all run out the bottom! The end result was a soaked, whole grain breakfast. Granted, a treat with the sugar and all, but I think we can live with that. :)

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
This sauce is delicious. I've simplified the process a bit for my family, and now we never are without fresh ketchup and bbq sauce. First off I make a double-triple, sometimes quadruple batch of "In a pinch ketchup" from this site. I make it directly in my blender, reducing the amount of water so I don't have to boil it down at all. I make a few healthy substitutions (in both recipes). For example, sucanat instead of brown sugar, omit the corn syrup, omit butter (from bbq sauce recipe), etc. I scoop out some ketchup into a jar until there's 2 c. left in the blender, I then add all the bbq ingredients (again, I adjust for our tastes), and just blend for 1-2 minutes, jar it up, and stick it in the fridge. At the end of the day, I have fresh ketchup, fresh bbq sauce, one blender and a few measuring utensils to wash. I have NEVER noticed a difference since I stopped cooking it. We go through at least a batch a month! Delicious!

Sesame Lemon Crisps

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Wow, what a pleasant surprise! A truly delightful little cookie that makes me wish I had a daughter to play tea party with. Somehow tea party with my four boys doesn't really seem quite the same. It at least makes me wish I liked tea, which I don't very much, unless it's the iced variety. I was out of brown sugar and used sucanat, used the zest of two lemons, it was all I had, and I was 1-2 T short on flour. But none of this really mattered. I may or may not have eaten almost the entire first cookie sheet full. I really didn't keep count. For anyone else looking at the minuscule 1/2 t. size dough balls on their cookie sheet and wondering if that could possibly be the right size, not to worry, they do spread out into lovely little mini-cookies (and then you don't feel bad for eating 2-3. Or 7. They're so tiny!) Try 'em, you won't be sorry. Even my boys loved them.

Ranch Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2013
Pretty good. Not quite "it" but all in all everyone enjoyed. I used less mayo and more sour cream/buttermilk to cut the overpowering flavor that mayo can have.

Pierogi (Polish Dumplings)

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
Really good. I made the dough whole wheat and would like to figure out a way to make it taste a little more savory, as whole wheat made for a thicker "crust." All in all, we all enjoyed these. I added cheese to the potato filling (I like plain, but in a family of cheese-aholics, I knew that'd be the way to go). Toasted them in a little butter after boiling, and served with sautéed apple/chicken sausage and bell peppers. Yum!

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
Yum. Made this whole wheat, and used up five overripe bananas. I skipped the cinnamon filling and put about 2/3 bag of chocolate chips in. I made one 10 inch loaf and one mini loaf. The mini loaf was gone within minutes! I'm not sure if the cream cheese really did a lot for this recipe, but I had a lot of cream cheese I needed to use up, so this worked for us.

Homemade Crispy Seasoned French Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2013
Yum. I fry things rarely and only cook with white flour at holidays and special occasions, but we were grilling burgers and fries (real ones, not oven ones) sounded amazing. I blame pregnancy. I had my doubts, but these were delish. I'm glad I'm eating mine now during the frying instead of with dinner, because between my three sons, the in-utero son #4, and my husband, these will go fast! I used onion powder instead of salt b/c it seemed a lot of salt. Next time I'll add pepper. I also fried in coconut oil since we avoid all veg oils and heating olive oil destroys its beneficial properties. Yum-o! Thanks!

Bird Seed Energy Bars

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
Yummy! I ground my flax, used coconut oil in lieu of canola, homemade chocolate chunks, and coconut sugar instead of brown sugar. Everyone kept asking for more! I cut the sugar and honey but next time I'd cut back even more, these were still VERY sweet!

Black Bean Spinach Pizza

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
This was ok. No one loved it. It lacked a little bit in the flavor department. I don't know. We'll see how leftovers are. I topped with pepperjack/monterey cheeses and served with some sour cream and sliced avocado.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
How does this soup have such a high rating with NO salt? It is soooo bland without it. Add salt, and possibly a handful of sharp cheddar cheese to your bowl, and you've got a winner! However, no salt = no flavor. (Only explanation I can think of is I used homemade chicken broth, which I NEVER add salt to. Perhaps the canned stuff is so high in salt already that this tastes good without the salt). I thickened with arrowroot powder as an alternative to white flour.

Bacon Omelette Roll with Salsa

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
I had major, major brain obstruction while making this. I am way overdue to go grocery shopping and we've been on bare bones for a few days now, so really all I had was eggs, 3 slices of bacon, and salsa. I mixed them together b/c apparently I can't read, seasoned with salt and pepper, and baked in a too-large pan for 10 min. It made a very thin, perfectly cooked roll. I just sprinkled the cheese and rolled straight up, did not return it to the oven. I also used my silpat and greased it with a bit of bacon grease. Yum! Everyone enjoyed.

Pepperoni Rolls

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
We enjoyed these very much. I used whole wheat flour, coconut oil instead of butter (nothing against butter, just running low), and 1/2 c. honey instead of sugar in the dough. I still thought these were awfully sweet and would definitely cut back the honey next time and maybe add herbs and garlic to the dough. Added just a smidge of cheese to each roll b/c I knew my hubby would prefer it that way. I didn't hear any complaints as he polished off nearly half a batch....
