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!

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!

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
Love this chili! This is now my new favorite veggie chili recipe. My changes: I use only 1 tsp. of the chili powder, and it is still very spicy! Also, I drained the canned veggies...gives it a chunkier texture that my family loves. The mushrooms are a great addition.

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!

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!

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2005
I made this salad for a dinner party...it was everyone's favorite dish! It may seem like a lot of strawberries, but it is just right...so delicious! I also offered a choice of feta or blue cheese. Try this one, you won't be disappointed!

Super Al's Cocktail Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
I also use bottled horseradish instead of fresh. I add a teaspoon of Worchestershire sauce, as well. We love this recipe!

Salmon Cakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Just made these for the family this week..they are always a hit! I use bread crumbs you buy in a can instead of fresh ones, but other than that, go by the recipes exactly. A great way to get more salmon into your diet!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
This was good...I would add more spices, though. I also added only 1/4 cup of olive oil as others recommended. Other than that, a great dish!

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...

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!

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!"

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!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
This is a great recipe! I made the following changes: regular, canned artichoke hearts instead of the marinated kind, cut the broth down to 1/2 cup, and used uncooked noodles (cooked the lasagna at 450 degrees for 50 minutes to cook the noodles). I will be making this again!

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!
