Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I made this for a friend's birthday- none had ever has texas sheet cake before and we all LOVED it! I omitted the nuts because of allergies and it was still great. We heated up pieces in the microwave and served it with vanilla ice cream... the fudgy warm cake with melting ice cream was amazing! I found it not quite as tasty when at room temperature.

Tea Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
These biscuits are amazing! I used the food processor to cut in the butter- put the dry ingredients into the processor, pulse for a few seconds to mix, then place the butter (cut into tablespoon pieces, and very cold) evenly on top of the dry mixture, and pulse until the mixture resembled cornmeal. This makes it very easy to mix and also makes the biscuits more flaky! Also, because I don't have a biscuit cutter, I used an inverted glass to make large biscuits, and a mason jar lid to make smaller ones.

Cranberry Salad V

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This is almost exactly the same recipe my family has been making for Thanksgiving since I can remember! The only difference is that we use raspberry gelatin, which we mix with the hot water and juice from the crushed pineapple, and cool it to where it is just beginning to set, then mix it with everything else. This is one of my favorites! Thanks!

Vegetarian Nut Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
This should be called Awesome Loaf! I made it to bring to work for lunch for a week and never got tired of it! It definitely took much longer than 25 minute of prep- I probably spent about an hour just cutting and sautee-ing everything. I made the bread crumbs by putting pieces of whole wheat bread in the food processor for a few seconds, and I grated the carrots using an attachment on the food processor. Next time I make it I will probably add some garlic to see how that tastes.

Vegetarian Moussaka

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
This was very good- I'd never had moussaka before and wanted to make something challenging. I added cinnamon to the tomato mixture as suggested and roasted some of the vegetables in the oven and sauteed some one the stovetop, mostly so I could *try* to save time. It still took me about 2 hours prep-wise. I also sliced the zucchini and eggplant length-wise which saved me a lot of time, and used the slicer attachment on my food processor for a lot of the veggies. I really enjoyed it and it saved well- took me about a week to eat it all, even bringing some to the girls at work who all loved it.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
These are AMAZING! Next time I am going to make a smaller batch and use less oreos and more cream cheese, as I'd like the centers to be more creamy. I put the balls in the freezer for 1/2 hour and used a double broiler so I could only melt the chocolate I needed.

Vegetarian Pasties

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I was not very impressed with this recipe. I had pasties in Wisconsin when visiting my parents and they were much better (granted, they had meat in them). I found the filling to be very starchy and dry the first time I made it following the directions exactly so I made some changes the second time. I followed some of the other review's suggestions about reducing potato (I only ended up using one) and adding peas and carrots- I boiled 1/2 cup dry split peas and 1/4 cup chopped carrot in 4 cups of water for 15 minutes, then added the lentils and boiled for another 30 minutes. I also added about 3 cloves of garlic to the onion saute. The dough was excellent, but it was too wet at first and I had to knead more flour into it. The second time I added the water gradually and didn't use all of it. Next time I will probably cut up a potato, rinse it a few times to decrease the amount of starch, and then boil it instead of baking it. I might bake some cheddar into it as well. I think there is a lot of potential to this recipe but even with the flavors I tried to add the second time it was still pretty dry.

Chocolate Pudding Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
I was not impressed at all- it wasn't very sweet and I could taste flour more than anything.
