    Greetings! The recipes here are fantastic – thanks for having this site. I love reading about cooking, I can’t wait to try them out on my family. They think I’m nuts (and maybe they are right lol) when they see me at work in the kitchen. Thanks again – great site!

  2. 2

    I like your blog.

  3. 3

    Love the new look! :)

  4. 4

    BEAUTIFUL!! I love the new page! :)

  5. 5

    I love the way you have your recipes organized… I may have to adapt a similar system. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. 6

    Wow! Your pictures make me hungry :) I look forward to trying your recipes! Thanks for sharing!

  7. 7

    Love this section, Anne! I’m not much of a cook, but your recipes are so easy to understand and healthy! I have a request…would you consider adding a section with your 5 minute lunch ideas? I made one of the veggie pitas yesterday to share with Lisa and we are now obsessed :) Thanks!!

    • 8

      Aw, thanks! :) And great idea about adding my 5 minute lunch ideas as a section – I will do that! I have been meaning to add them somewhere and putting them on the recipe page would definitely make sense!

  8. 9

    I love all your recipes! They are fabulous! Excellent work, and keep going with this!

  9. 10

    I came across your whole wheat pumpkin muffins on Sparkpeople and gave it a try. They are amazing (even my kids, 11, 8 and 4 adore them!) I am always trying to feed my family healthy food but it is so hard to find food that tastes as good as it is for you. I can’t wait to try more of your recipes.

  10. 11

    I just have to let you know that I made your no-bake granola bars (with buckwheat groats instead of cereal) and they freakin ROCK! Seriously, I’m absolutely addicted and can’t stop eating them. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  11. 12

    Love your recipes, any chance you can include the nutrition labels? e.g. Calories, Fat etc.? That would be helpful. Thanks :D

    • 13

      I have been trying to work with someone to calculate that for some of my recipes, but it’s slow going because I’m so busy with school and it’s time consuming! I’m sorry!

  12. 14

    I absolutely love your blog and fANNEtastic recipes! I got routed to your blog from Sparkpeople (I have been a member of SP since ’07) and love your recipes! I made your pumpkin pie oatmeal for my kids and myself and it was a total hit! Do you come up with these yourself? They are amazing! Looking forward to more!

    Hi Anne,
    Your recipes look wonderful and I can’t wait to try a few. Is there someway that you can provide me with the nutrition facts for the whole wheat peanut butter bannana Bread and the blueberry apple cinnamon yogurt bread. If not, is there a place I can go to get that information. I am tracking everything that goes into my mouth, so this information is important to me. I am a part of the SparkPeople and was routed to your recipes from their site. I am looking forward to trying more of them they really sound good/healthy and you have great response from others who have tried them. Thanks

      Hi and welcome! I wish I could provide nutritional stats for my recipes, but unfortunately between being in grad school full time and blogging I just don’t have time to calculate it all. If you want to calculate it yourself, http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp is a great place to enter in all the ingredients and have it give you the stats! If you end up calculating any of them, please let me know and I’ll add them into the recipe pages. Thanks and enjoy!

    I just found your blog and your recipes look soooo good! I can’t wait to try some and to continue to read through your posts =)
