Swiss Chard with Pinto Beans and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Excellent recipe - my 18 year old daughter who doesn't like chard ate this and had seconds. I made a few changes: I added the cheese at the end and left pot covered so no need to bake as recipe had suggested....I used no butter (didn't miss it), used mozzarella instead of goat cheese (still yummy), and used a 15 oz can of diced petite tomatoes instead of fresh tomato. Substantial recipe and nice textures, served it with a fish recipe and it was a good alternative to rice or potatoes with the beans.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Adjustments I made: used 6 oz. red wine in place of same amount of broth; used water because I had no broth; used only 4 cloves garlic instead of 8 and added garlic powder; used 2 T. tomato paste when sauteing onions and garlic; omitted parsley. It came out fabulous and very hearty. Used cayenne instead of red pepper flakes. NOTE: I agree with another reviewer - this made only 4 hearty servings, not 8 when used as a main dish. The second time I made it came out even better. Used one cup white wine (pinot grigio) and 4 cups chicken broth. Drained and rinsed great northern beans prior to using. Omitted parsley and italian seasoning (didn't have any) and used fresh cut up large tomatoes ~ 1 cup and white onions.

Oatmeal Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I made a few changes to see if I could make do with less sugar: instead of white sugar I used 1/3 c. honey. I increased the brown sugar to 1 and 1/3 cup, and used 2 tsp. cinnamon (not one) and instead of butter I used 3/4 c. applesauce. It was moist and good.

Fennel in Wine and Honey

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
I used the bulb and the stems for this. Maybe that was a mistake. Generally this didn't have a lot of flavor - I made it just as directed in the recipe. (and I LIKE fennel) I won't make this again.

Cinnamon and Lime Chicken Fajitas

Added extra lime juice over the chicken prior to mixing and used cayenne on potatoes. Otherwise unchanged from recipe as listed and all of my family liked it.
