Sesame Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
I toasted the sesame seeds in a cast iron skillet on the stove top. I was also making a beet salad so I decided to add the beet greens (lightly sauteed in sesame oil) to this broccoli dish. Lastly I reduced the sugar to only a pinch. The result was quite tasty.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
I just made this and it turned out Really tasty. I even messed it up and I think it made it better too :-) I forgot to add the sugar and didn't realize this mistake until after I had put it in the pan (I licked the spoon and it didn't taste sweet at all). So I put about a cup powdered sugar on top then folded it in, though not too thoroughly because I didn't want to over mix the batter. The end result it yummy.

Radish Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
I think this would have worked better if I had mixed in the cream cheese by hand instead of using the food processor. It was more like a liquid than a dip. Also could have used more radish to the amount of garlic in it.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
What I made was five starred, but I made a few modifications: A lot of people were going to eat it so I added another half of the recipe. I swapped the amounts of cornmeal and flour, and added polenta. First mixed the 4 1/4c milk with 3c cornflour and 1/4c polenta. I added more milk because it seemed like it could use more moisture. Let sit for 15 minutes. Added 3 eggs and 3/4c oil and mixed well. Combined 2c flour, 1.5T baking powder, 1.5t salt and 1c sugar (could have only put 2/3c though). Then added to the cornmeal mix. Poured most of it in a preheated, oiled cast iron skillet and baked. The rest I made into muffins. It was a hit with all ten people who devoured it!

Pear Honey

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I used really ripe pears, almost to the too ripe state so the sugar content was already really high just in the fruit. With that and other people stating 8 cups sugar was too sweet I cut the sugar down to 3 cups. I had it simmering for something like 4 hours, or so. SO GOOD!

Pumpkin Butter III

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
Delicious! I used freshly roasted pumpkin, 2 cups of it pureed in the food processor. According to other reviews I used water instead of apple juice. I also used 1/2t cinnamon and 1/4t nutmeg instead of pumpkin pie spice.

Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
After reading other reviews I adjusted to: 1/2 cup oil, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup sour cream. I also didn't add the chocolate chips because I didn't have any. I would make this again for sure!

Easy Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
Mmm... pancakes. I used less baking powder because 2T just sounds like way too much for only 1c of flour. I also added fresh mashed banana and tamarillo, vanilla extract and cinnamon, therefore I had to change the amount of milk to the create the proper thickness. Thanks for the base recipe!

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
This is delicious! I had to make a few alterations because I didn't have everything. I used one tamarillo (tree tomato) instead of tomato paste, veggie broth instead of chicken, one sweet potato instead of a carrot, and I didn't use cilantro or oil to drizzle or the pinch of chili powder, plus I used a little less broth than called for. First I sautéed the onion for a few minutes, then I added the sweet potato. After about five minutes I added the garlic and spices and sautéed for another three or so minutes. Finally I added the broth and put a cover on it. It cooked a lot faster than 30 minutes, probably only 20 and everything was cooked enough to eat. I decided to pureed it all instead of leaving it chunky. In the bowl I put a squeeze of fresh lemon juice on top. We were both very pleased with the result. I will definitely make this again!

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
This is a great starter of a recipe. I would never make it as is because it is too plain. I added more vegetables and spices and it turned out quite tasty.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
doubled the recipe and used fresh ginger. They expand quite a bit and they take 10-12 minutes to cook but when they're done, mmm....

Delicious Artichokes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
The artichokes I used were delicious and the basil pesto was homemade. I didn't use the breadcrumbs but I very much enjoyed eating my artichokes.

these deserve zero stars! Lacking in flavor; a complete waste of ingredients and time.

Rhubarb Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I changed the recipe a bit: 2 eggs instead of 3, cinnamon with a dash of chinese five spice because I didn't have nutmeg, added some sliced apple and I made a basic crumb topping with brown sugar, oats, flour and butter. It is cooling now...

Nectarine Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
I used about 3/4 condensed milk and 1/4 low fat milk instead of heavy whipping cream; I also added some chopped rhubarb and 1/2c sugar. Then I baked it for an hour. It is cooling now...

Best Buckwheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Awesome!! This is a keeper for sure! I followed someone else's lead and used 1/2 yogurt and 1/2 milk instead of buttermilk. Taste great like that, but when you add bits of boiled sweet potato, oh wow you are in for a treat!

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I used chili powder instead of cayenne, lime juice instead of vinegar and walnuts then let it sit in the refrigerator for a few days. When I mixed it in with the hot pasta I grated parmesan on top. Delicious

Asian Veggie Patties Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I made these without the Asian Veggie Patties. They were tasty but I liked them even better when I added a bit of shredded spinach and chopped cilantro
