Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Excellent recipe! I had never made spaghetti squash before, and this was just great. The one change I made was to add a splash of balsamic vinegar to the dish right before serving...divine! It really bumped up the overall taste of the dish...can't wait to make this again!

Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
Made these for Easter brunch, and my family LOVED them! A few notes: 1) I went with the 3 oz. of cream cheese in the frosting, and it was fine. Can't imagine almost tripling the amount as some other have! 2) This recipe as written makes 24, and we couldn't eat that many. So, I baked 12 of them on Easter, and put 12 in pans in the fridge (after I cut them and let them rise an hour). Just baked the last batch today (4 days after), and they are still amazing! Definitely will make this again and again...

Zippy Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I really thought this wasn't good...the flavors were all wrong. Very disappointing.

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This really is a keeper! I can't say enough wonderful things about this recipe! I took advice from others and used only soy sauce (no teriyaki), used veggie peeler to make really thin strips, and used sesame oil in place of vegetable oil. This is definitely going to go in our rotation of veggie dishes!

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
A good vegetarian alternative to meat tacos (just use water or veggie broth in place of the chicken broth)...will definitely make this one again!

Amazing Greek Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
Loved it! We added more capers, omitted olives, and served over bow-tie pasta. Will be making this again!

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
This is an easy, nutritious, awesome-tasting dish to make! We have already made it three times in the last month...it is definitely going on our regular rotation. The only change I made was to omit the mushrooms as my family does not like them. A keeper!

Peanut Butter Cookies VII

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I think this is the best peanut butter cookie recipe ever! I suppose I just like mine drier and more crumbly than others. I always get rave reviews on these cookies, and I think it's because of the shortening (I use Crisco Butter Flavored sticks). Thanks for this one!

Orange-Ginger Tofu Triangles

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
Love this! Didn't think there was too much marinade (the recipe says to pour some off before you put in the oven). I marinaded this overnight in the fridge, and I think that really made all the difference. Served over jasmine rice and with sesame broccoli...will definitely make this again!

Greek Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
This is an *awesome* version of grilled cheese...both my daughter and I loved them. We didn't put onions on them, but will try that the next time. Easy supper, but not boring, same-old. Thanks for this recipe!

Orange Beef-Style Tofu Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Very good! More time-intensive than I would have liked, but well worth it. My daughter said, "it tastes just like in the restaurant, Mom!"

Spinach Enchiladas Verde

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
We loved this recipe! I made homemade green sauce (look for a recipe for salsa verde...it's really easy to make), and the trick to keeping the corn tortillas from falling apart is to dip them briefly in hot oil in a pan (drain them on paper towels on a plate after doing this). It's tricky, but it makes the tortillas flexible enough to roll. Will probably make more salsa verde to use on them next time, too. Edited on 1/3/09: Making the separate enchiladas became too much of a hassle, so now I make this as a casserole (layering the spinach, the cheese/sour cream, and the corn tortillas, ending with the sauce on top). Much easier, and we make it more often now! Yum!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
I've been looking for a good cobbler recipe, and this is it! I followed everyone else instructions on making a 1.5 batch of the cobbler crust, but didn't reduce the sugar at all (we like our cobbler sweet!). I changed it a bit, in that I rolled the crust into balls and then flattened them (sort of like little cookies) before putting them on top of the fruit (in order to make a more "cobbled"-looking crust and to have it cover more of the filling). Worked perfectly!

Infused Olive Oil

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
Okay, the reason this recipe is so bland is because it calls for too much olive oil. I made it with only one cup of olive oil and it was much better. Try that and see what you think!

Four Cheese Macaroni Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
Excellent dish! I made the following changes: used only one 14.5 oz can of tomatoes, and didn't use italian seasoning (just oregano and basil). I also didn't put the tomatoes in a separate bowl first as the recipe called for...I just added them into the casserole dish and mixed in after the first batch of cheeses. A great twist on regular mac-n-cheese!

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
Okay, does no one else think that 3 cans of diced chile peppers makes this soup waaay too hot?!?! And I thought I liked my food spicy...apparently not! Other than that, we really like this recipe. My changes: cut down on cumin (to 2 tsps.), added the can of black beans for protein, drained the corn, used 3 8oz. boxes of veggie broth and 2 cups of water (makes it cheaper to make and you don't notice the difference!). We also added a squeeze of lemon juice at the end (didn't have any lime), but I will definitely add more lime juice (1/3 cup of fresh squeezed) next time along with less chile peppers! This has the potential to be a great recipe, though, so I gave it 4 stars. Loved using the frozen peppers/onions...didn't know that product existed until this recipe! PS--I made it again using the lime juice and it was great! Also, substituted 28 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes for the crushed ones and we liked that better, too. I think we have finally found our veggie tortilla soup recipe!

Black Bean Tortilla Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
Pretty good...I only made one change--using a yellow bell pepper instead of a green one (I like the taste better). An easy supper to make!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I make this almost every week for my family...we love it! I substitute other veggies (carrots, asparagus, etc.) with great results. Definitely use balsamic vinegar (NOT lemon juice!) and don't forget to halve the spices if you are doing dried instead of fresh. Great recipe!
