Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2007
Tasty and healthy. The curry gives it an interesting touch that I liked. I substituted broccoli for the zuchini, and it turned out great.

Potato Chowder Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
Great chowder. I substituted green onion for the celery (don't like celery) and added broccoli. I also followed the advice of other reviewers and added a chiken broth cube.

Buttermilk Biscuits II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
I guess the one person who didn't like these biscuits scared everyone from trying them. I think the recipe is great.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
This is a nice hearty bread, but not too heavy. Like others, I put 1/4 cup of sugar and used half wheat, half white flour. I live in Taiwan where it's not easy to get good bread, so I'm glad I found a recipe that comes out perfect every time.

Good 100% Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I usually do wheat bread with only 1/3 whole wheat flour, because I don't like whole wheat bread that much, but this bread was excellent. It isn't too dense, and it is quite moist. I make bread a few times a week, and my husband said this is the best I have ever made. I made it by hand: proofed the yeast, let rise 1 1/4 hours, then formed into loaves and let rise about 45 minutes. Baked on 350 for 30 minutes.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I have made my husband many a chocolate cake, but he deemed this as "The cake I have been looking for all my life." If made a day in advance and frozen, it is even richer and more moist. I topped it with a ganache, and everyone at our party thought it was amazing. I'll be using this recipe the rest of my life.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
Excellent recipe. I was lamenting that I couldn't use my usual carrot cake recipe because it's packed away in storage back in the U.S., but in the end I am glad to have found this recipe. Like others I subbed applesausce for half the oil and used half whole wheat flour. You can't tell the difference and it's less unhealthy. I used cream cheese frosting II from this website.

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
I like the oatmeal aspect of this recipe, but it was too dry for my taste. I'll keep looking for a more juicy apple crisp.

Brown Chicken Stock

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
This is an excellent chicken broth. It's easy to make, and sooo much better than store bought. Plus, it's "all natural." I use it to substitute for oil in a lot of my cooking. It's much healthier.

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
This is a nice side dish. If made with multi-grain rice and a little less butter, it tastes great and is quite healthy. I didn't have almonds, so I put toasted walnuts instead, and it was still delicious.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
This is simple, tasty, and pretty healthy for a side dish. I do it all the time with normal potatoes... don't know why I didn't think of using sweet potatoes before.

Gazpacho Andaluz

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
This is a great gazpacho recipe. My mother-in-law is Spanish, and she always made this for my husband. This is the first time I have made it that he has been satisfied as to its authenticity. BUT, don't add so much water!! I didn't add any water, just some ice (in the blender) to make it cold rather than room temperature. Otherwise, the flavor will be too watered down and the consistency will be too liquidy.

Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
This is an excellent soup!! I felt like a professional chef after serving a soup like this. I made a different soup every day this week, and this was our favorite one. To make it even more healthy, I left out the sour cream and added 1 1/2 cup of milk to the roux before mixing it in with the rest of the soup. It's standard procedure in a lot creamy soup recipes, and it worked great with this one.

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
This is a great soup. It's quite easy and fast, and very healthy. Next time I'll follow some of the reviews and leave chunks of broccoli in the soup. By the way, I added some cheddar cheese, and it was good, but I think if your calorie concscious it isn't worth it because you have to put a lot of cheese in to be able to taste it. It's good enough with out cheese.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
This is a quick and healthy meal that tastes great. I added finely chopped potatoes with the onions, and added some chicken to make it more hearty. The potatoes give a nice texture and flavor. Also, if you don't have all of the seasonings- some of them are less common for the average American cook, and I can't find them in Taiwan- you can just put curry powder in place of the tumeric, coriander, cayenne pepper and cumin and it still turns out delicious (although I'm sure using all of the fresh seasonings as the recipe calls for is better).

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Very good and very easy. I used fresh pumpkin: it's only a little extra work, and it turns out better than the canned version. Don't be afraid to boil some pumpkin, it's even easier than making mashed potatoes :).

Classic Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Pretty good. I don't like candied sweet potatoes, but I made these for traditions sake for those who like them. My husband took them out of the oven for me, and was sure he wouldn't like them. In the end, we both liked them, and I'll use this recipe again for Christmas. I might add a few marshmallows on top because it would look nicer that way.

Chocolate Streusel Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Very rich and chocolatey. A whole cup of sugar is absolutely unnecessary: 3/4 cup is plenty. Otherwise it comes out really sweet and a little grainy in texture. This recipe is worth trying, maybe as a replacement for brownies one day.

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
I have been trying a new whole wheat recipe bread every day this week. The differences between each recipe are slight, but it looks like our family votes this recipe as the best one from the site. It wasn't too dense, nor did it have the bitter flavor some whole wheat bread has (I used 100% whole wheat, no bread flour). It tastes just like something from the bakery, even if you don't take the time to make it by hand.

Granola Raisin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Excellent!! I made it with 100% whole wheat flour. The flavor and texture are great, plus it's healthy and very hearty. Every time we eat it, my husband can't stop saying how much he likes this recipe. I've been making a different recipe every day lately, and this one ranks at the top of the list.
