Reviewed Fudgy Brownies
"The epitome of the perfect brownie as written.
However, for the more health conscious who are not willing to sacrifice taste or texture (like me!), I recommend the following changes. 1:1 coconut oil instead of butter, 1:1 coconut sugar instead of refined sugar, sprouted spelt flour instead of all purpose. So delectable I'm making it for a famil"

"Excellent! Much needed departure from the ho hum dinner rut. (Like others, I used butter for the roux - what was Paula thinking to call for OIL?!)"

Reviewed Lemon-Ginger Frozen Yogurt
"Summer in a bowl! Excellent flavor, and, not to sound like a copy cat, so REFRESHING!
To cut make and eat immediately, I took another reviewer's suggestion and made it with 32 oz of Greek yogurt, no straining, no waiting...and you DON'T want to wait. :)"
Reviewed Honeydew Melon Soup with Ice Wine
"My husband was a skeptic, but we both loved this soup - SO refreshing! We has it as an appetizer for a summer meal, but it would be an excellent palette cleansing course or even a light dessert.
I did not strain it but blended it instead to oblivion. It was heavy on mint, but in a good way. My husband does not care for wine so I didn't add the "
Reviewed The Ultimate Cheesecake
"If I were rating the whole recipe, cheesecake and blueberry topping, I'd have rounded up to 5 stars.

I've used other beer batter recipes: too thick, too thin, blah blah. I was about to give up until I found this one. It ROCKS. My husband loved it, too - just l""
Reviewed Vanilla Ice Cream
"If you want a sugar free version, essentially, add 1/2 tsp of xantham gum, 1 Tbl of honey, and 2 Tbl of vanilla liquor instead of the sugar. Came out creamy (no ice crystals that usually form w/sugar free because of the x gum and alcohol and delicious. Husband said no one would suspect it's not regular ice cream - great taste and texture.

Favorite FoodsRecently became a convert to spelt (an ancient "cousin" of wheat) since it's higher in fiber, nuttier tasting, and is not genetically modified. (I don't digest modified grains too well.) Vitaspelt pasta and my own spelt bread made my new Panasonic Automatic Bread Maker SD-YD250 are my new favs. Love veggies from our garden, too. Oh, and my secret fav is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (on my homemade spelt bread of course!).
