Savannah's Best Marinated Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2014
I made this last year as a vegetarian option to sandwich meat at the Welcome back luncheon for our teachers. It got rave reviews by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. I will be sharing this recipe widely and will definitely use it again. I took the advice of others and used a mid-level wine we had on hand. Scrumptious!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
These got rave reviews at the Preview at the book fair this morning! I'm passing the link to the recipe along to the teachers! Thanks for a savory, yummy "muffin" alternative! I did make a few changes. I'm a fan of cheddar paired with bacon. I doubled the recipe and used half swiss and half cheddar. I did not use the onion but sprinkled garlic powder on top of each cup (sparingly) before baking. I will definitely make these again (especially since I still have filling leftover and an extra can of biscuits).

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Thanks a Million for posting! Son's birthday order was chocolate cake with chocolate icing. This put the cake over the top and gave me more than enough for a 3-layer round cake with frosting in between each layer. I will definitely keep this recipe in my box for future use.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake on a diet

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
This barely made it through the weekend. It was wonderful! I did make the following changes: 1. I ran out of sugar so used: 3/4 c. granulated sugar + 1 1/4 c. Splenda 2. For the Sour Cream: 6 oz. Plain Greek Yogurt + 2 oz. light sour cream 3. I used UNSALTED butter The only difference is that the cake could have handled an extra 10 minutes in the oven, but it was wonderful anyway! Thanks for sharing!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I tried this because I wanted a recipe that used lots of banana. This is our new favorite! I used the Splenda Brown Sugar blend and it turned out fine. The kids have requested this over and over. Thanks for a keeper!

Very Versatile Curried Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2010
I made this for a light lunch I hosted today. I added a bit more curry powder and skipped the cranberries and pecans. Instead of regular Mayo, I used Kraft light made with olive oil and squeezed a fresh lime for the lime juice. This salad was served along with a cracker and cheese plate. It made a lovely light lunch and is now awaiting the return of the children from school. I made it in the past with dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. In all this is a very versatile and tasty chicken salad. Thanks for posting! I will definitely use it again!

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
Oh My! I think I got my daily fiber allowance by licking my fingers on this one! What a great recipe and versatile too. I used Bakers semi-sweet chocolate squares since I was out of chocolate chips, emptied the remains of a bag of peanut butter chips into it and finished off a jar of low-fat natural peanut butter. We'll see how it goes with DH who absolutely abhors anything that is on his "twigs-and-sticks-cereal" list. I'm betting this will go down as easy as the chow-mein noodle version. Yeah for another DH fake-out to get him eating healthier! Thanks!

Mandarin Almond Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
The ratio of dressing to salad is perfect! The flavors, refreshing and satisfying. Hubby likes his plain old ranch dressing so this isn't for him but this salad simply rocks for everyone else! Made just as the recipe called for. Do not dress this salad early, toss it in the dressing just before serving.

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Wonderful! The kids loved them... especially with their requested chocolate chips. What I liked was that I didn't feel so bad adding the choc chips because of the healthy recipe. I didn't have whole wheat flour so I ground extra oats and increased the white flour (50/50) to make up for the 1 c. of whole wheat flour. Thanks for posting! I'm adding this to my permanent file.

Marinated Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Just like what Mom used to make when I was a kid. It is always better the next day or two after the flavors meld. Awesome sour addition to meal.
