Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
As advised by other reviewers, I halved the sugar and oil. I added half a teaspoon of black pepper and used half an onion...the black pepper might not have made a difference (I couldn't taste it) but otherwise the recipe was great! Will make again.

Potato Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
I made this for my family and they loved it; I was so pleasantly surprised! To balance healthy with affordable, I usually keep frozen/canned greens on hand along with lots of potatoes so I thought I'd give this recipe a try. The only thing I changed was that I used yogurt instead of sour cream to make it healthier. It was such a hit I made it twice in a row. I read the directions wrong and mixed all the cheese together with the other ingredients, but this kept it from getting crunchy on top. The second time I made it I added a little extra water to make it a little more moist and used canned mustard greens instead of spinach, but either version was a hit. Definitely a keeper and good for getting people to eat greens.

Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2012
great easy recipe! The first time I made this, I didn't have any orange juice so I used a little lemon juice mixed with 1/4 c water and a little sugar instead. super fast, turned out great! Only caveat, I used frozen green beans and they got soggy, so in the future I will follow the directions and use only fresh vegetables. Also, after trying the first batch, I followed the advice of another review and added some peanut butter, and it was different but also quite tasty!

Spinach, Potato, and Nutmeg Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
A very nice, light soup. We enjoyed it for breakfast. I made a few changes due to necessity: used some half and half instead of milk; used kale instead of spinach, did not use boullion, added 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1 1/2 tsp cardamom, 3 strips of bacon.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
DELICIOUS. I have never seen a pot roast go so fast, I barely got any myself! Added all ingredients except celery (didn't have any) to a crockpot and cooked on low for 8 hrs.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
chewy every time! I use whole wheat flour and brown sugar instead of white and occasionally substitute 1/4 c bran and/or 1/4 cup garbanzo flour for extra fiber. Sometimes replace 1/2 c raisins with chocolate chips or walnuts, depending on what I have handy. They always turn great! Love this recipe:)

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
one of my favorites! works every time. gotta be careful not to make the cookies too big though, or you will just get a pan-sized cookie. I often substitute whole wheat flour for the white.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
added half a cup of honey and doubled the spices (gave it lots of moisture)...took this to a potluck and someone actually STOLE the half eaten pan before I left and gave me back the clean empty dish a week later, they liked it so much!!

Delicious! Can be made partly with whole wheat flour, and usually yields more than described for me.

Fennel Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
One of my all time favorites! An easy, healthy soup...subtle flavor is very unique. I typically double the fennel and curry and add slightly more rice or use barley (barley might make the soup thicker if you don't add a tad more water, but that's up to you). Sometimes I add white mushrooms in order to trick myself and others into eating them...they don't change the flavor at all. All around a versatile and delicious recipe!

Ginger Snaps II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
excellent recipe...forgot to make something for a deptartment picnic and found this recipe with 1 hr to spare--it was the biggest hit there! substituted 1/4 of regular flour for hazelnut flour I was trying to use up, the rest I used whole wheat flour, turned out great. WARNING: make tiny balls of dough, I made what I thought were a good size and it turned into one giant cookie. Still delicious though :)

Squash and Apple Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I loved this recipe! In response to all those reviews about flavor, just add a teaspoon or so of cinnamon and maybe half or a quarter teaspoon of nutmeg. You'll be able to smell it when you have the right combo of spices, it will smell like apple pie.

Cauliflower-Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Excellent! My only comment is about the cheese...I'm from Wisconsin, so I felt the need to add about a half cup more cheese to make it cheesy enough for my tastes...if you want it cheesy, plan on adding more. Otherwise delicious!

Bryan's Spicy Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
This is the most disgusting looking thing I've ever eaten (I used green lentils instead of red ones, which I'm sure didnt help), but it was delicious! However, I did have to add about a cup more water, and used the tomato juice as well. Also, it took about 45 minutes for the lentils to cook.
