Blueberry Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2011
Great, simple recipe that tasted like it took hours to put together (even though it really took only minutes!).

Alicia's Aloo Gobi

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
Hailing from an Indian family, we grew up eating the more traditional (dry) version of this sabji (in Gujarati, it's called bataaka-phulaaver nu shaak). I was hesitant to depart from tradition but, the end product, with the coconut milk (we used light!) and tomato sauce was delicious! Once you've added the cauliflower/potatoes/chickpeas, don't worry if it seems like there isn't enough liquid for everything to cook--it WILL cook and the liquids will sufficiently cook/absorb all the raw veggies. I'll definitely make this again!

Southwestern Lentil Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
I used a scant 1/2 cup of EVOO. Substituted yellow bell peppers for the green ones, and used Trader Joe's frozen roasted corn. Delish.

Grilled Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
I use lots of crushed garlic, and my "Misto" olive oil spray can to spray these babies before grilling. Also, kosher salt works better. They are absolutely delicious!

Oatmeal Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
Oatmeal cookie recipe is great. I followed others' advice and cut down on shortening when making the filling but, it was still too (painfully) sweet. I'll go with cream cheese filling next time.

Scrambled Egg Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
Delicious. Added 1/4 of a fresh jalapeno, finely minced, and used veggie sausage (Morningstar), which we cooked/sauteed & chopped up, to add to the batter before baking. Delicious, served with fresh avocado & some light sour cream!

Vegetable Biryani

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I used red chili flakes (1/8 tsp) in place of bay leaves, substituted corn for carrots (didn't have any carrots), added an extra 1/4 tsp of garam masala for kick, an extra tsp of salt (it needs the extra salt!), and served with cucumber raita (Indian yogurt dish).

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I agree with other reviewers'--the recipe doesn't specify what KIND of potatoes. I ended up using 4 medium-sized Russet and, the soup turned out OK. Little too thick for my taste. But, I added garam masala (well-known Indian spice), and that made all the difference!

African Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Delicious! I didn't have whole canned tomatoes so, I mixed up canned crushed and 1 ripe fresh tomato. Added 1 tsp garam masala (for *kick*), and halved the entire recipe. Was delicious!

All-Around Good Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Best smoothie recipe ever. Plain & simple. We omitted the flaxseed because we didn't have any and, substituted MANGO for the strawberries. The consistency, texture, taste, smooth-ness, healthiness of it all made it the perfect smoothie!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
I made a few changes to "zest" up this recipe to our liking. I used light cream cheese and included 2tbsp. Ricotta cheese. The slightly-granular flavor adds to the texture and taste. At the end, I added a handful of scallions and one finely diced green chile--gives this kick!

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
The best breakfast we've had. Served it hot on pancakes with a little bit of butter and, voila! gourmet brekkie in 30 minutes flat. I added the 1 tsp. vanilla and loved it!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
I doubled the recipe, used a little [too much] SriRacha (rooster) sauce, and served it medium-hot alongside a mixed greens salad. It was delicious!

Brown Rice Black Bean Burrito

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Absolutely delicious. I added a couple of squeezes of fresh lime and salt, and let the rice/bean mixture cook for a few extra minutes before making the burritos. The lime added the "zing" that was missing. Also, lite sour cream works better!

Garden Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Good pasta salad. Standard. But nothing super-fancy. It lacked 'kick' so, I added pepperocino peppers. Tasted delish!

Banana Pudding IV

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Absolutely delicious. I HIGHLY recommend the following modifications: (1) use ONLY Vanilla instant pudding as the recipe instructs (do not use banana--its fake!); (2) use only 1 can of condensed milk (up to 1.5, if you like your pudding super-sweet), but 2 is way too much; (3) I left the cream cheese out on my windowsill the night before; in the morning, it was ready to whip. SO many people asked me for this recipe!

Easy Southwestern Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
We use this delicious dressing to bind together a quick, yummy, and complete meal in salad-form. Cook up a couple of cups of tri-color pasta shells. Drain, rinse, and mix them together with black beans, corn and green onions (scallions). Throw together mixed baby greens, fresh spinach, chunks of avocado and halved-cherry tomatoes. Crush a couple of cups of tortilla chips on top, add this BBQ-Ranch dressing and, you're set with a hearty, healthy meal.
