Make-Ahead Vegetarian Moroccan Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Great! I used a butternut squash instead of a sweet potato and carrots, eyeballed the spices, and added a little heat. Very forgiving recipe!

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2011
I'm pretty sure I messed up the chocolate bc it just turned into a lump. Despite this, these brownies were gone within just a few hours, the whole pan!

Grandma's Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Made it as written and with suggested changes (no parsley, oregano, or basil, and extra tomatoes and soy ground beef). I liked this chili as written but loved it without the Italian spices. I don't think the extra tomatoes made much difference to us, except that I guess it keeps it soupy if you're adding the soy grounds since they can be dry. Thanks!

Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
Good and nutritious, but a little bland for me. I think it could be a five star recipe with some changes, so I'm going to keep tinkering!

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Tasty! Not our absolute favorite soup, but good lo-cal dinner. Served with chicken sausage and sourdough. Roasted the cauliflower and a clove of garlic at 400 for 40, 50 respectively. Since the cauliflower was mostly cooked, I didn't boil it in the broth for long. We can definitely taste the roasted garlic!! Used only 6 c of broth and a dash of thyme at the end.

Cabbage Patch Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
Yummy and forgiving! It's not really a cabbage stew, because of all the meat and beans, but that means it's an easy way to get veggies in without noticing! I doubled the cabbage and still didn't notice it (which I think is a good thing, cabbage is not my favorite).

Beet Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
I like this but it does have a unique flavor. My beet-hating husband says he swears he can taste the beet, but he still ate three cupcakes out of the oven (with chocolate fudge frosting), so that's saying something! I'm okay with beets, sometimes, but I liked the batter!

Swiss Chard with Pinto Beans and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
DELICIOUS! I used black beans, like others, because that's what I had. Also I just used butter, bc I don't need the extra fat. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. I think even if you didn't make the changes I made it would still be a 5 star recipe! It's the red pepper + lime + tomato + goat cheese that's really lovely!! The chard stands up to this combo nicely, so I won't sub any other green. I think you could use any bean you wanted. Texturally, black beans, pinto beans, and white beans would all be good. We ate this as a side to white fish. I'm going to serve leftovers with white rice tomorrow, since the rice will soak up the sauce very well.

Green Bean and Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I liked it! It definitely needs to sit in the fridge and probably could use a little less dressing as others have mentioned. I think we put a little extra mustard and worchestershire sauce and a little less vinegar. Served with feta, yum!

Rice with Summer Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
Good, but I think next time I may use a little less liquid. Mine was a little liquid-y and the timing was a bit off.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Sweat my eggplant like others suggested, baked 10 min per side, + 20 more min in the oven. Perfect!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
I didn't care for it. I like balsamic vinegar and it was too balsamic-y for me. If I make it again, I'll prob sub some chicken stock.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
I only used about half the chicken (1.5 lbs), with the same amount of sauce. Omitted the black pepper, a bit less red pepper and a little more coriander seed powder (bc I like it!) In the end, it wasn't what I expected but still OK, I would rate it a 3. Fam liked it better than I did (they said 4 stars) and asked for more heat next time!

Robin's Quinoa with Mushrooms and Spinach

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
The mushroom mixture is especially good! Next time I'm making twice as much!! Spinach didn't add much but color, even though I love spinach usually. Added carrots too. I've tried it with feta and goat cheese (and parmesan) and I think feta is the best.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Yum!! Skeptical, but lovely! Added some garlic, gave 4 stars because only needed 7-8 minutes in the oven. If I'd put it in for the full time it would have burnt.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
Very good, particularly as a starting place. I've made it a few times and I put it whatever veggies I feel like eating! First time I accidentally bought "coconut creme" which had tons of added sugar, but the hubs liked it this way a lot. I had to add extra curry powder to compensate. Tip - dry roast the curry powder a little (until fragrant) before adding other ingredients, it helps pull out the taste. I agree with others that this is better after a night in the fridge!

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
YUM! Cut nutmeg in half bc I don't like it as much, added cinnamon and a couple tbsp sugar, as recommended by others. Left the batter in the fridge over night (def tasted better the next day). Before cooking, added milk to thin it out until it was spreadable, prob 1/2 a cup more. The batter tasted salty, but the pancakes did not. So don't dismiss salty batter! Cooked smallish, thin pancakes on low heat, didn't have any burning or mush issues, but they do take some time. Also - left little lumps of sweet potato (not well mashed) and I was glad I did, it added a nice texture! Served with Blueberry Breakfast Sauce from this site. Next time we'll eat them with cream cheese and honey.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
YUM! I mixed the syrup with the apples and put it all in together before covering with my top layer of crust. It seemed like there was a little too much butter, but whatever it came out so well. Also - my apples were huge, so I only used about 5.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Fantastic! I use only parm, a bit of fat free sour cream instead of some of the mayo, and reduced fat cream cheese. Made a mistake once by using lower quality parmesan and realized that I love this dip because usually i use a high quality parm and that's what it tastes like!

Winter Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
Yum! My husband thought it was just "pretty good", but I thought it was delicious! I added more curry powder and some red pepper, bc we like spicier food. Also, did not preboil the lentils, just added more liquid to the soup.
