Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
Moist, dense and full of banana flavor, unlike other banana bread recipes I've tried that have turned out dry, crumbly, and without much banana taste. Some substitutions that worked out well: 1/3 cup vegetable oil instead of shortening, white whole wheat flour instead of all purpose. Optional: add crushed nuts and raisins.

Vegan Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
The final product turned out to be a 4.5 star muffin, but a lot of changes had to be made, so I'm knocking this recipe as written down to 3. Otherwise, it's a great starting point. 1) The sweetness was too much. I had 1 cup brown+1/4 cup white, but this could probably be reduced to just 1 cup brown (all the apple and applesauce already provides sweetness, as well as banana-see below)... 2) I didn't want to use up 9 tsp my egg replacer, so 3 mashed bananas substituted just fine (which also provides sweetness)... 3) Like many reviewers said, the baking soda and salt was too much, 1 tsp baking soda and 3/4 tsp salt should be enough)... 4) I used white whole wheat flour instead of all purpose. This made it healthier and I couldn't tell any difference... 5) Finally, because the batter is wet and dense, put it in for 400 ºF for 35 minutes.

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2009
I found this recipe too bland for my taste. It might be improved by cooking the rice in vegetable broth.

Brick-Oven Pizza (Brooklyn Style)

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
Very good pizza, tastes like it's from a deli! I did not have a pizza stone, but baked it on a pizza pan for 7-8 minutes on 500 degrees, and it still turned out great.
