Feta Cheese with Basil Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
This was delicious! I've made it twice now and it's turned out perfectly both times! The only changes that I have made is that I used an oil and vinegar dressing just because I was trying to use it up and have one less bottle of dressing in the fridge. This salad is really good, especially if you let it sit a bit before you eat it. The dinner party I took it to devoured it, and there was 4 of us though the recipe is for 6! Compliments all around! Tastes great and easy to transport and take to parties and potlucks and things!

Orange, Walnut, Gorgonzola and Mixed Greens Salad with Fresh Citrus Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
This was delicious! I did make some minor changes... I used feta instead of gorgonzola b/c it's all I had. I also used regular walnuts (because that's what I had and didn't toast them or glaze them or anything). I went light on the oil (to watch calories). I mixed everything together instead of sprinkling on top. And I used a spring mix that had arugula in it and also added some kale! It was AMAZING! Even better the second day!

Italian Vegetable Soup with Beans, Spinach & Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
This soup is fantastic! I use sweet potato instead of regular. I omit the celery and bell pepper. I also use vegan pesto (basil, olive oil, garlic, nutritional yeast) and if you use a vegetable broth, it is a totally vegan recipe.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
My boyfriend loved this last night and it was super easy! That is an A+ recipe to me! The only changes that I made were: half the sugar (we don't like sweet foods and are dieting), and I didn't have cidar vinegar so I used half white distilled and half rice vinegar b/c that is what I had. I didn't measure anything out really, just used lime and lemon juice too, we only made 2 chicken breasts so it worked out well! Definetely will do again!

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
These got devoured in my house! They keep asking me when I am going to make more! The mint flavor was great but don't keep these cookies in a zip-loc with other cookies, they will absorb some of that mintiness!

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
A great way to cut a few calories is by using the Crisco spray butter --- it's just like Pam but has a great buttery flavor! Served with creamy tomato basil soup and you have the perfect winter lunch!

Portuguese Chicken I

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I made this for dinner last night and quite enjoyed it though I made a number of changes! I only used 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, and filleted them. Reduced the butter by half. I doubled the amount of garlic. Only used 1 cup of stock. 40 minutes of simmering was far too long for the thinness of my filets. It was basically all gone but left a very small amount of nice thick gravy in the pan. I added a small amount of hot water, then I used maybe only 1/4 cup of half & half instead of heavy cream and stirred until thickened. I sprinkled salt and pepper in the gravy at this point. The results were quite delicious.

Sausage and Bean Ragout

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I thought the flavor of this dish was quite good, regardless of being worried about the lack of spices initially! Changes that I made was omitting fresh basil because I didn't have any though that would have been delicious; and I used Great Northerns instead of Cannellini's. In the future, I will add an additional can of beans. They were definetely lost in all the meat of this stew.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I really liked the concept and it was pretty easy to make. I feel like it could have used a little more oomph so I added some extra spices and used a hot salsa. Not sure if I would make it again or not. It basically tasted like a bean burrito but nicer presentation.

Pumpkin Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
I adore this recipe. I am pretty much addicted to all things pumpkin! This had a good flavor and not overwhelmingly pumpkiny. I made a couple of small changes... I omitted the wine and added a splash of vinegar + water. I used more than 1 cup of pumpkin because I had a large already opened can and didn't want to waste. I used dry thyme. And I added a lot of mushrooms.

Vegetarian Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
I've made this a number of times and love it. I'd give it 5 stars except I always have adjustments to make. I always add way more tomato sauce - usually the entire can worth. I tend to do less tempeh and more onion and bell pepper just because I like to load up on veggies where I can as well. I always double the garlic in any recipe too. Other than that, the flavors are spot on and this is a GREAT vegetarian alternative - and we're not even vegetarian! ;)
