Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
This soup was awesome. The only issue we had was hubby added a little more apricot than it called for an it was a little too sweet. Not the recipes' fault.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
We didn't want to fry them so we followed MANDT2's comment. I actually don't love regular crab cakes... too mushy. I thought these were really great. Made a creamy legume soup to go with. Excellent veg dinner. If you salt and squeeze out water watch the overall salt level since Old Bay has a lot of salt. Next time we plan to find a recipe for lower salt Old Bay and add more seasoning.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I thought this stuffing could have used about half as much sausage. It felt pretty heavy. But it was quite delicious, even still! I will definitely make this again - just cut back on the sausage.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
When I made these I replaces 1/4 cup butter with 1/2 cup applesauce (caution I'm at 5000ft so I need more moisture). I skipped the frosting. They were a little cakey but they were quite perfect when re-heated a little bit when they were a few days old. Will be making again and will throw caution to the wind and try the frosting.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This mostly just tasted like cooked cauliflower to me - which is fine. I just didn't get much flavor from the roasted garlic.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
I wanted a little more excitement from this recipe, so I made some changes and it came out really well: I used olive oil instead of butter. 1 cup broth, 1 cup water. Skipped the parsley cuz I hate parsley. I add about a 1tsp curry power to the liquid before it boils. Then add about a 1/3 of a cup frozen peas with about 5min left to cook.

Spicy Mexican Style Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
Made with quinoa instead of rice. Used less cheese and salsa. Thought what I ended up with was amazing. Thanks for the jumping off point!

Maria's Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2011
The rice was fairly flavorful. I'm only giving it 3 stars because it tasted a lot like pre-made onion soup and it was pretty boring. Not surprising, but next time I'll make it with just beef broth and add caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms. I'll try making it in a rice cooker and report back.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
I followed a few suggestions of a reviewer from Jan 2, 2004: I used 4 med bananas, 1/4 c oil and 1 cup applesauce (unsweetened) in place of the margarine. I used 1 rounded T of instant espresso (Medalglia D'oro) dissolved in just a little more that 1 T water, and only 1 cup of sugar. I live in Denver so I added an additional 1/2cup flour, filled the papers just about all the way full, and baked them at 370 for about 22-23 min.

Fresh Apricot Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Wow!! I've made this twice: once with apricots off our neighbor's tree, and again when peaches came into season. I use half the amount of white sugar, max. The crumbly topping is almost exactly the crumbly topping on my mom's strawberry rhubarb pie - I.e. one of the best things in the world. I'm tempted to try with pear next!

Lentil and Cactus Soup (Mom's Recipe)

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
I would have given this a higher rating, except I used fresh cactus fronds. I had to look up how to cook them, and they turned out really mucilaginous. Next time I'll try jarred cactus. The lentils were really yummy.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: May 10, 2012
We microwaved the sliced potatoes for a few minutes first to cut down on oven time. That worked well. I, personally, did not think this needed additional cheese sauce. I recommend adding ground thyme to the sauce and sprinkling the top with some bread crumbs before baking.

Orzo Shrimp Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
I made a bunch of changes... but I've giving the recipe some stars for being a good starting point. 1) started with cooking chopped onion, minced garlic in olive oil. 2)Added a tube of soy chorizo that I found in the Mex grocery store that I just had to try. 3) Added can toms, ~4cups chicken stock, 5oz frozen spinach, thyme, dried italian seasoning. Boiled. 4) Added orzo, boiled, simmer for ~10min 5) Then added 1/2 lb shrimp for ~1 min 6) Salt and pepper to taste. I prefer leafy greens in soup to broccoli.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
Cut sprouts in half if they are large; otherwise the cooking time will be much longer. Also, definitely add minced garlic!!

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
My husband and I really like this marinade for sturdy fish. I think you can use about half as much marinade for the suggested amount of fish. Works well with baked/broiled fish also.

Balsamic Chicken with White Beans and Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
This was ok. I had to create the soup from a roux because I don't have cream-of-x soup on hand. Was a little too vinegar-y.

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
This recipe is pretty close to the Ethiopian veggies at the restaurants I've eaten at. Made a version once that called for a ton of nutmeg. Caution... run away from versions that call for nutmeg.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I actually made this with canned mackerel (one 15oz can) drained - cheaper, lower in toxins, and no dolphin issues. I thought this was quite good. A lot like my mom's tuna casserole - but actually yummy. I chopped a whole onion, , added fresh ground pepper to the veggies, added ~2/3cup frozen peas, only used ~2 tbsp mayo total. To the cheese sauce I added ~1tsp dried thyme, and ~2tsp good mustard. I added ~2 tsp cream cheese to supplement the soy milk I have on hand. I do not have pimentos on hand. I sprinkled a little bit of Italian seasoned bread crumbs over the top and baked as indicated. I did not add additional cheese to the top. I didn't think it needed more cheese.

Chi Chi's Corn Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
So I kindof thought I was making a very soft corn bread. Not so much. While it was a very interesting, and quite yummy treat (read:dessert item) it was NOT a corn bread. Just FYI for the northerners out there.

Baklava

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Not sure how thick I'm supposed to make the syrup. Other than that recipe was easy to follow and turned out wonderfully! Yummy!
