Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2008
ive never rated a recipe before altho ive tried many. ive been vegetarian for 25yrs and i can honestly say that this was BRILLIANT!I didnt give 5stars because i changed it slightly. i used 2chopped fresh tomatoes instead of the stated and added a small can of baked beans in tomato sauce instead. it was EXCELLENT!

Tomato Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: May 14, 2009
this recipe was quite good BUT its very greasy. i made it as written first and the oily residue on the bottom of the dish was incredible! ive just made it a second time with modifications and it is now an excelllent dish. i cant give it 5stars as it is written but with modifications(all a question of taste, of course) it is excellent! my changes were: i fried they onions in the butter as stated, left out the cheddar COMPLETELY, then mixed the herbs with the onions. i then layered as stated omitting the cheese and mixed the parmesan with the breadcrumbs according to the recipe to sprinkle on top. the second time i didnt have fresh tomatoes so i just opened a can of tomatoes and mixed the onion and herbs with that to layer with the zucchini. BOTH WAYS WERE EXCELLENT!

Zucchini Chocolate Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
this is an excellent way to use up extra zucchinis. i only had 2eggs available, used o.j. instead of milk and substituted half a cup of plain yogurt, using only 1/4cup of butter. next time i will add more orange zest(just a personal preference). a very, very, good cake.

No Bake Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
i very rarely post a negative review but im sorry to say that although i followed this recipe exactly, it turned into a gooey, yucky, mess! so many sent in good reviews so maybe i did something wrong(cant imagine what). sorry but everything had to go into the trash - we couldnt even pick them up - they were like glue!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
this was excellent! i didnt give it 5stars simply because i modified it very slightly by leaving out the heavy cream and making my own bechamel(white)sauce using milk, butter and cornstarch. this was a quick and easy vegetarian meal for my family and will make very often.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
made this recipe exactly as written and as a chocolate pudding it is excellent! trouble is, i wanted it as a chocolate pie filling and found it too runny for that even when i chilled it for 24hours. wonder how the others managed to get it to firm up?

Argentine Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
im not giving 5stars simply because i modified the recipe slightly for my taste. i used half the apple and added a small diced potato instead of the whole apple plus i fried the onion and garlic and potato before adding the lentils, water and cube. this stew was absolutely terrific! no it wasnt watery like a soup. i just cooked it a little longer until i got the consistency i wanted - about 10mins extra. served it with fresh crusty bread and my family loved every bit of it!

Microwave Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
i dont review recipes very much unless i feel very negative or positive towards them. this was SUPERB! i didnt give 5star because the chocolate sauce was too watery in my opinion and quite honestly i dont think it was necessary. this cake is brilliant on its own and is one of the rare microwave cakes that dont dry out very quickly - 3days after i made it, i left a portion to see the result and it was STILL moist and tasty! what more can you ask for?

Double Crust Bean Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
this was excellent! i cant give 5stars since i didnt follow the recipe exactly. i added a bit of parmesan since i didnt have enough of the cheese required, plus i added a handful of corn. the most important ingredient is the salsa, if you have a good salsa then the pie will be brilliant. i will be making this again and again.

Simple and Delicious Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
i cant give 5 stars since i used margarine instead of the butter and shortening in the recipe which means i modified the recipe slightly. i think this recipe is even BETTER than the ready made buttercream frosting that i usually buy. i used it to frost my christmas fruit cake and everyone was impressed. thank you so much for such an amazing and easy recipe.

Spaghetti Sauce with Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
i cant give the full 5stars because i changed it a little. i tried to review earlier but the stars wouldnt show up so im reviewing it again. this is an AWESOME dish. so simple, healthy and delicious! i only used 1can tomatoes and a little water. as is written, its too acidic for my taste. i also added 1teaspn sugar to the tomatoes which i add to ALL canned tomato dishes to offset the acid. i crumbled a veg oxo cube to give depth of flavor and to balance the sugar in the tomatoes. it was perfect. thankyou for a great new way to use cauliflower.

Potatoes Madras

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
wow! this was sooo good. i changed it slightly so i cant give five stars but even if you follow it to the letter, you cant go wrong with this recipe. i soaked the lentils in water while i prepared the other vegetables and i used apricot jam instead of the chutney since i like my curries to be hot, sweet and spicy. i took another reviewers hint and fried a bit of cumin and ground coriander with the ginger and curry powder. other than these minor changes, i followed the recipe. thankyou for submitting such an excellent recipe.

Stovetop Chocolate Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
awesome recipe! i flattened out the mix into a pan to make bar cookies. i melted some semi sweet chocolate and poured on top. once hardened, i cut into bars. also added an extra tablespoon of cocoa since i love chocolate! next time i will double the recipe to make them into a more substantial bar cookie. thankyou for such an easy, delicious dessert.

Easy Vegetable Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2013
this is EXCELLENT. i didnt have condensed soup so i made up a pack of campbells creamy vegetable cup-a-soup instead and sprinkled a tblspn of flour on top of the filling as it looked a little runny. the pie came out perfectly.
