Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 2, 2007
I made this recipe vegan (and thus changed it A LOT). The muffins were perfect!!! To make vegan: 1/2 cup SOYMILK + 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar instead of milk, 1/4 cup SOY YOGURT instead of 1 egg, 1.5 cups CAKE FLOUR instead of 1.75 cups regular flour. Also, I added 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/8 teaspoon allspice, and greased the pan with cooking spray instead of paper liners. Bake for 20 minutes.

Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
Here was my take on it: 1/2 cup sugar, 3 eggs, juice of 2 lemons, zest of 2 lemons, 9 tablespoons unsalted butter -----> PERFECTION!!!! This was my first attempt at lemon curd and with such success here I will ever even try another recipe.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
The best pesto I've made and the first with walnuts. The flavor of walnuts is better suited to pesto than pine nuts in my opinion.

Beet Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
This is a special recipe. It turns out moist and delicious with a very unique flavor. I went a little overboard with 6 beets - you could taste them in the cake so next time I'll use 4 or 5.

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I used 2 cans of beans and processed one of them with the tomatoes. I added just 2 cups of broth then water as needed.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Fabulous!! I used 1/2 lb elbow pasta and am glad I did that because 1 lb would be too much. I also cut off a piece parmesan rind and boiled it with the soup. I did not boil the grated cheese with the soup, but rather added it last after turning off the burner.

Mango Cardamom Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
WOW! This was so different than the average dessert and with the cardamom it had a very unique flavor. I upped the sugar to 1/2 cup and used a deep casserole dish but otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I will use just 1 t. cardamom since, as others mentioned, it is a strong presence.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Well just like everybody else, I made some changes. I'm certain they enhanced this recipe! I made sure to pre-soak the milk and saltine crackers. I chopped the onion very fine, beat the eggs, and mixed everything together rather than making the layers. Most importantly, I substituted an acidic, vinegar-containing bbq sauce (Prosser's brand) for ketchup. It tasted spectacular! Also I would recommend using nonfat milk and very lean beef, otherwise this is one fatty meal!

Party Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Used recipe just as a general guideline. Instead of ranch dressing mix, used celery salt and a pinch of cayenne. Also reduced the amount of cream cheese. Used bell pepper, olives and yellow summer squash instead of celery. YUM YUM

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
Easy and tastes amazing! For those people who live near Trader Joe's you can get cubed butternut squash there and avoid chopping up whole squash.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This recipe sat in my recipe box for a while because I thought it would be really hard to make. But when I got around to it I realized it wasn't hard, and worth every second in prep time because the flavor is great and it keeps well too!! Like others I incorporated changes: added some potato, boiled veggies with a bayleaf, and added poultry seasoning to the sauce. The filling barely fits into the shell so measuring the veggies out was important. I didn't notice milk on the ingredients list and completely left it out by accident...still turned out a 5 star recipe!!!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
I thought these were complex enough as is, so I didn't add chocolate or butterscotch as others have done. I cut back on the white sugar, using only 1/2 cup and was very pleased with the final product.

Strawberry Cream Roll

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Don't try to stir the fruit in with the cream or it gets mushy. Just place the fruit on top of the cream before rolling. Other than that, amazing recipe! I used nectarines, grapes and raspberries. You could use almost any fruit and it would be delicious!!
