Holuski

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Satisfying, easy, and I think it cost about $3 to make :o) I think I'll add garlic next time. I also would like more cabbage/onion and less pasta to keep it a little lighter. But will make again for sure.

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Made as written (with the exception of adding extra veggies & crisp frying the tofu) and wasn't entirely impressed. My sauce was runny and not very flavorful. I think the brand of peanut butter you use changes how much water you need.I use natural (with the oil drained off). I had to add double the peanut butter , vinegar, & soy. I highly suggest only using 2 Tbls H20 to start & thinning as needed. But with a thicker sauce, some cilantro, and chili sauce it's really good.

Amazing Gluten-Free Layer Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
Very sweet, but good. Everyone loved them. They taste like a yummy dessert, not like a dessert substitute as other gluten-free recipes I've tried do. I think they need to cook just a few more minutes to reduce the stickiness and create a stronger crust. Overall the best gluten-free dessert I've had.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
I LOVE these things! My mom made them for every picnic/BBQ I can remember. Our family trick is to add about 3/4 c. of coconut. It's so fantastic that way! But she always used a cake mix so I was excited to try this recipe. The first go round I baked as directed and it was a burnt disaster! I think the temp is too high!!! I tried it again at 325 for 16 minutes and it worked much better!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
Easy, cheap, & a great starter recipe. So much better with a little garlic & onion though. I skip the broth and just do water. You can't tell the difference & it's a little healthier.

'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2012
Love it! Doubled everything except the green beans & added a pkg. of cubed tofu. It's a one pan, low carb, high protein dinner! Can't beat that. Might go heavier on the garlic next time.

Vegan Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
I made this last night & the flavor/texture when cooled were very unappealing. I tried it again today & it was much better. Make the day before! If you have someone with milk allergies this might be a nice treat for them... with fruit topping or maybe some walnuts. However, anyone who can have milk will only say they like it to be nice! Also~ mine baked 45 mins. before it was set. Normally I skip crusts, but decided to try one.

Garlic Parsley Spaghetti

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
I wanted something on the simple side & this was perfect. Next time I'll use more parsley and a little bit of parmesan. Yum! I did cook my pasta al dente, but I think it should be softer.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Good starting point. Too much salt. Next time I'll skip the salt all together & try cayenne. Also, you don't want any pieces touching each other or they won't be as good. Well spaced out they only took 6 minutes per batch. One bunch took 3 cookie sheets. My pieces were irregular sizes so they didn't all cook evenly. I would aim for a standard size :o) I just ate 2/3 of a bunch of kale...

Peanut Butter, Mayonnaise, and Lettuce Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Haha~ I didn't know anyone else made these :o) My mom will be thrilled. So honestly if I hadn't had this sandwich as a child I would probably rate it ** but it's comfort food for me. Miracle whip is the way to go and crispy iceburg lettuce. I'm curious if it's a regional thing: I grew up in the Northwest & everyone here thinks it's disgusting. My family is from the Midwest & everyone seems to have grown up eating them there.

Stove-Top Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This gets 5 stars for beings the easiest mac & cheese ever, not having processed cheese, and being super creamy. But gets 3 stars for flavor. It's not horrible, but tastes like the stuff you get at the deli counter. I used high end medium cheddar and next time I'll try sharp cheddar or pepperjack and a little onion and garlic. All in all it's a keeper recipe.

Absolutely Perfect Palak Paneer

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Pretty good. I didn't have coriander, but added gram masala and 1/4 tsp of red pepper. My mixture was dry so added some vegtable broth. Also, I used fat free yogurt & it kinda curdled! So next time it will be the last thing I add. The whole ricotta for paneer deal is weird. Tasted okay, but too much work for the outcome. Just buy paneer.

Carrot, Potato, and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This is pretty salty!!! And I only used 1/2 of what it called for! So the sodium content is pretty revolting :( Taste wise, it's bland... not bad, just bland. Eh~ I'll try it again but with more spices, garlic, and some flavor :o)

Vegan Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
Really good! I used dried beans (so much cheaper here!) and at the last minute realized I lost my can opener (?!?) so had to leave out the corn & tomatoes. It was still fantastic. The seasoning needs a bit of tweaking it's a very mild soup. I think spicy would be better.

No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
These are fine. I like the traditional ones with peanut butter better. I would like to try a no bake with peanut butter, coconut, and marshmallows at some point :o). I never have milk, but have found you can swap the milk/sugar for a can of fat free sweetened condensed milk in no bake recipes. The tasted is best if you boil the cocoa with it. Slightly softer, but still good.

Curried Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
I had very low expectations for this, but it is awesome! It's not "real" Indian food any more than Panda Garden is Chinese food or Kraft is Mac & cheese. Yet, sometimes I get a craving for the cheap knock offs. This is so easy and total comfort food. I suggest upping the curry powder, adding some red pepper, and tossing in a can of drained and rinsed chickpeas. It can also be made without the topping & simmered on the stove.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
This is awesome! Didn't measure the brown sugar or OJ, just did them to taste. It is WAY more than 8 servings though. Everyone went back for seconds & we still had tons of leftovers! I will say this though: people use "yams" and "sweet potatoes" interchangably and they are not! They are two different things. If you want the pretty orange casserole like the pictures show you want to use yams. Sweet potatoes barely have more color than a normal potato. I used 1/2 of each as I like the orange, but sweet potatoes are supposed to be better health wise.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This seemed like the perfect recipe. Then I tasted it. I do not care for cooked orange juice, I think it tastes musty. On the plus side: I figured out the mystery "yuck" ingredientt that appears is some mulled wine recipes :o) I dumped in more sugar and boiled until pretty thick then swirled in maybe 1/4 c. Of fresh OJ when I took it off the heat. Yum! I guess my perfect recipe will be 12 oz cranberries boiled with 1 c sugar & 1/2 c water. Then add 1/2 cold oj and chilled. Yum! Well maybe more sugar? We use it as a spread for cold turkey sandwiches.

Pizza Sauce and Dough

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This totally bombed for us :( I almost rated it a two star... something I have never done before! The sauce is better in than the crust, but even still I had to pretty much double the spices and add salt to get it tasting better (I NEVER add salt, I usually try to lower the sodium!) It still was off so I looked at other recipes and noticed they typically had some sugar added so I added maybe 1 Tbl of brown sugar. In the end the sauce was good. The dough. Ughhh. So bad! So dense it was like a brick! I thought it might have been bad yeast, but we did a taste test with another recipe and that raised properly... I don't know, I followed the recipe and it just never did raise properly.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
This wasn't the best. Honestly, we didn't think it was any better than the pizza dough balls you can get at the grocery store. We did a little taste test with this & the Homemade pizza & dough recipe on this site. It was better than that recipe, but nothing fantastic. It is super easy and "homemade" but taste wise it just isn't that great. Not horrible, just not great. Also~ my oven has never seemed to run hot, but at 450 my crust had burned all along the bottom in 14 mins. Just a heads up!
