Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2001
Easy!! I didn't have tempeh, so I just added an extra can of beans, and it was still wonderful.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2002
Fabulous and easy recipe! I added a few whole fresh mushrooms halfway through cooking, and they made a nice garnish. Also used fresh tomatoes. This recipe looks great served in shallow bowls over pasta--I'm not great at presentation, but this looked beautiful and would make a great last minute recipe for company.

Soft Molasses Cookies V

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
These are by far the best soft molasses cookies I have ever tasted. I even replaced half the butter with Smart Balance and they were still fantastic. I had to add a little extra flour (maybe 1/4 cup) and baked them the full 10 minutes. Totally satisfying in every way!

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Made this for dinner tonight and it was awesome. Just the right combination of savory and sweet. I roasted the beets for a full half-hour before adding the sweet potatoes and onions--double the suggested time--and I would go even a little longer next time. I like my beets very soft--as soft as the potatoes. All the ingredient proportions were perfect, though--not too greasy, too sweet, or too salty. Just right!!

Baked Tofu Bites

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Well, I was all set to give this recipe three stars--decent flavor, but a little too intense for my taste--but my two-year-old LOVED this stuff. That's worth another star all by itself. Next time I will leave out the liquid smoke and add an extra Tbsp. of maple syrup to balance the soy sauce better. I also had to roast these about 10 minutes longer than suggested to get a good texture on the outside. Will make this again and again, playing with the marinade each time probably.

Peanut Sauce I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
This sauce is great! I added a tablespoon of ginger paste and omitted the cayenne. I threw in an extra splash of vinegar, too. I will make this again and again.

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
This is a delicious and easy soup! I doubled the recipe and used vegetable stock instead of chicken to make a vegan version. I also omitted the cabbage, used dried minced garlic, some oregano, whole wheat penne pasta, and a whole can of tomato paste for a double recipe. I would use less salt next time--maybe half. The broth thickened up really nicely after the soup cooled a little. I will make this again and again! I think I'll try adding some greens next time like spinach or chard, mostly for some color variety. Good stuff!

Curried Lentils

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
A decent recipe, but not much in it's own right. It's a good base recipe which you can add to or change, but alone it largely depends on the quality of curry paste (or powder) you use. I used low-fat coconut milk and curry powder, along with a dash of whatever garam masala ingredients I had on hand (a little cardamom, coriander, cinammon, and cumin). I also threw in a handful of raisins. Simple and satisfying dish over rice. My two-year old loved it!

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Wonderful balance of flavors in this dressing. Don't cut back the oil and vinegar, just keep fresh bread on hand to sop up what's left on your plate! You could sub just about any fresh chopped veggies in this salad and have it come out beautifully, I'd guess. Fresh avacado slices on the side make a great accompaniment--good contrast of flavor, color, and texture.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
These pancakes were unbelievable. I substituted 1 c. whole wheat flour and increased brown sugar by 1 Tbsp. Also had no allspice so subbed 1/2 additional tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. clove, and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. My picky eaters wolfed them down--great way to get whole grains and a little vegetable matter into your kids. =)

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
I made many changes, but this turned into a fabulous (and healthier) bread: -subbed 2 c. whole wheat flour -subbed 1/2 c. applesauce for 1/2 oil -used light coconut milk -omitted white sugar! (Trust me--this bread is so sweet, you won't even notice) -increased spices by adding a little extra cinnamon, 1/2 t. cloves, and 1/2 t. ginger -omitted flake coconut. -increased nuts to 1 1/2 c. With all these changes, this was the most satisfying pumpkin bread I’ve ever eaten, vegan or not. Baking time was exact—they were perfect after 1 hr. 15 min. My kids loved it, and I will make it over and over again! I'll also try this recipe for banana and zucchini bread...

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
I was looking for a classic baked bean recipe using dried beans, and this fit the bill perfectly. I doubled this recipe, soaked and precooked the beans as recommended. They turned to mush--next time I'd skip boiling the beans before they're baked, and I'd also pre-fry the bacon before adding it to the beans. They were fabulous, but shoe leather would be fabulous combined with that much bacon fat. Wonderful flavor, though, and perfect amount of sauce and spices. I added a little liquid smoke per another review, and some extra molasses because I didn't have any brown sugar. I'll make this again and again!

Tasty Fried Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
This recipe automatically earns five stars because my husband, four-year-old, two-year-old, and eight-month-old all devoured it! I shallow fried them in an iron skillet, flipping them halfway through cooking. Also used extra cheese, and a small red pepper instead of the green pepper. Very worth the extra effort to dip them in flour, egg, and breadcrumbs. It gives them that irresistible chewy/crunchy coating everyone wants when they go to the trouble to fry something. Just abandon yourself to the process and have fun with it! Next time I will use mozzarella and parmesan with some italian herbs...

Shrimp Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I've never made fried rice, and this recipe was a perfect starting point. Not too complicated, fail-safe recipe that stands up to numerous modifications. I will make this again and again, with whatever veggies and protein I happen to have on hand. Drop the extra salt, and use brown rice!

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2010
This was SO good. My modifications: -2 tsp. garam masala subbed for cayenne and coriander in spice rub. -dredged the chicken in flour after rubbing with salt, pepper, and spices, before sauteeing -omitted jalapenos -omitted fresh ginger (but I'll use it next time, just didn't have any on hand) -used whole coconut milk, 'cause I'm crazy like that -used chopped fresh basil per another reviewer, and it was fantastic. -also diced the chicken and added it to the sauce, then simmered it all for about 20 minutes. Added a little extra salt to taste. The flour-dredging helped thicken up the sauce a little, too. My husband, 5yo, and 3yo devoured this. So did I! Garnished with flake coconut and chopped cashews. Thanks for a great recipe!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
I was looking for a dutch-oven carnitas recipe, and this substituted great. I tripled the spice rub, browned the roast in lard, poured in the chicken stock and put in the oven at 350. So, so good...

Amazingly Good Eggnog

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
She's right. I'll never buy store bought eggnog again!! This recipe tastes exactly like the most expensive brands of eggnog. I left out the rum so my kids can partake, and we just add it in to taste. This recipe is pitch perfect--don't change a thing!
