Reviewed Healthy Pumpkin Soup

Nov 9, 2014 in on

Wonderful with modifications. Like the other reviewers, I like my soup to have a lot of flavor and I found it a bit bland so I added ginger, thyme, and cayenne pepper. I used butternut squash and didn';t want the mess of putting it into a blender so I mashed it with my potato masher. Instead of the skim milk powder I used Silk unsweetened alm...

Reviewed The Best White Chicken Chili

Oct 19, 2014 in on

This is a very good low fat/low calorie recipe. I made it exactly as the directions stated but it tasted a bit bland for me so I added another large clove of garlic, 1/2 t salt and 1 T of chili powder. The chili powder does darken up the broth a bit. With the additional spices, it was wonderful. A perfect cold day meal. Next time, I would add an...

Reviewed Double Chocolate Malt Shop Cupcakes W Cherry-Vanilla Buttercream

May 9, 2013 in on

This was a very good recipe. I added 2/3 cup of sugar per the other reviews and 2/3 cup of malted milk powder. The cupcakes had a great flavor and were just sweet enough. I also increased the recipe for the icing and found I had way too much. I guess this is all in a personal preference on how much icing you like on your cupcakes. If you are pipi...

This is a wonderful pie. I have always made the Libby's recipe which we have liked but was looking for something a bit different. This pie has a nice dense consistency. I added 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp cloves because I do like some spice and other reviews indicated the flavor was a bit bland. My family raved over it and we will c"

Reviewed Mom's Oil Crust Pie Shell

Dec 25, 2012 in on

This is a very good pie crust. The amount of salt was way too much for me and I would drop it down to 1/2 but no more than 1 tsp. I made the crust for pumpkin pie and aside from it being too salty, it was a great crust. It is super easy to make and very eay to work with.
I actually made the crust right in the pie plate, didn't use any cooking...

Reviewed Sour Cream Banana Bread

Oct 9, 2011 in on

I took this recipe and totally made it over as a healthier version. I used the Sneaky Chef flour combination (wheat flour, wheat germ, white flour mix) added some oat bran and used Plain Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. I used 3 medium bananas. I added nuts for some protein (although the yogurt has a lot). This is amazing. It is a little ...
