Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 7, 2012
My comfort food is quiche and when I have a rough day, it is what I crave. Just the smell of this quiche cooking is enough to make me smile. Like other reviewers, I also reduced the amount of butter. I used a cream cheese instead of feta (feta is hard to find where I live in the world) and it was delicious. I also made my own pastry as pre-packaged pie crust is not an option here either. It may have been my gas powered stove that increased the cooking time as my took longer than an hour to cook properly. I cut out the mushrooms and added red pepper for color. The end product was delicious and I know I will make it again.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
I first discovered this recipe a year ago when we decided to start eating more vegetarian food. I have made this for our lunches once a week ever since, and whenever I am asked to bring a cold appetizer somewhere, this is what I bring lathered on a crostini. It always gets rave reviews.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2013
I have made this recipe many times. I have played with it from time to time to make new creations. Today I used the recipe to stuff cabbage leaves to make "cabbage rolls" and in the past I have used tomato sauce in lieu of paste to make lasagna rolls. Delicious every time.

Karen's Baked Banana Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
My son is a picky eater and devoured his banana stuffed french toast. I sliced the bananas as other reviewers recommended. I also added a layer a nutella on the bread before adding the bananas. We topped ours off with whipped cream and strawberries. It was delicious. I will make this again.

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
I have made this recipe a dozen times since finding it. It is the best cornbread I have ever made. I usually use plain yogurt in place of sour cream because where I live, sour cream is difficult to find. Seriously delicious.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VI

Reviewed: May 18, 2012
Hands down, the best oatmeal raisin cookie recipe I have ever made. Moist and sweet = delicious. Both my kids inhaled these. I could not keep up with the demand. I do not know what made them so perfect, but, they are, and that is all that matters. I do think that portraying these as healthy cookies though is quite deceiving. A cup of butter is not health food. But, I would not have it any other way. A cookie is intended to be a treat!

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
These were delicious and I wish that I could give them more than 5 stars. My husband has never really been a lentil fan and having moved to Africa, lentils abound. Other then the lentil mixture being too spicy for my kids, I did not miss the meat in these tacos. I have made it again several times, a little less spicy, and all have enjoyed them. Probably my favorite recipe that I have gotten off this site. Thanks for sharing.

Chinese Noodle Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
I thought the quantity of this recipe was huge, so, I made some changes to that, and I added some additional veggies and used a homemade teriyaki sauce. This recipe was a great starting point to make a delicious and quick Chinese dish that was healthy and satisfied a craving for Chinese takeout. I only used one chicken breast that I diced and I added diced red pepper, mushrooms and garlic in addition to the snow peas, carrots, and broccoli. Yum.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs I

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I have been making this recipe for years and was happy to see it here. I have made it with all types of jelly including, peach, apricot, and fig so use whatever you have on hand. Try and stay away from jellies that have fruit chunks in it though because the sauce never tastes as good for some reason. Anytime I have a potluck to go to this is what I make and it always disappears. We live in North Africa now and I still make them whenever I have the right ingredients. You cannot go wrong with these meatballs they are a winner every time.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
These were great. My two year old loves them and has no idea that there are healthy ingredients in them. I have made them a couple times now, each time using less and less sugar and using different kinds of flavored applesauce. They have been great every time. They are moist and delicious. I always make them as mini muffins, so if that is something you are interested in, bake them at 350 for 15 minutes. The recipe then yields 24 mini muffins. This is a definite keeper.

Apple Bacon Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2012
This recipe was pretty good. It had a good balance of sweet and savory. I added sweet potato and apple to the dish, but only half of one onion. Two onions seemed like a lot of onion. I did not use cranberries because I cannot get them where I live. So, instead of adding juice to the dish, I added extra home made apple sauce. It was pretty good. I would make it again.

White Chip Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
I took the ideas from this recipe and converted it to a muffin recipe. They turned out fantastic. In addition to the white chips, I added the orange juice soaked craisins. Everyone loved them and went back for more. Next time, I will try to make the cookies, but, with the muffins as big of a hit as they were, it may be a go to recipe from now on.

Rice and Lentil Soup in a Jar

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
This soup turned out well. I did make many revisions based on the fact that I live in the middle east and converted rice is not an option and green lentils can be very difficult to find. I used all red lentils and a grain called farro in place of the rice. I created my own seasoning mix similar to what would be in poultry seasoning and used fresh made chicken broth instead of water. To top the soup off and give it some color I added diced fresh tomatoes. Very hearty and perfect for a cool day.

Fresh Cherry Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
I make a lot of fruit crisps. I always use fresh fruit to make them. This is a good base recipe, but required a lot of changes. First, use only 1 cup of sugar to cover the fruit. Second, use only 1 cup of flour for the crumble topping, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of oats. Eliminate the shortening and use only butter. This created a nice balance of sweet and tart. By using all the sugar included in this recipe you would completely overshadow the sourness of the sour cherries. If I had followed this recipe exactly, I probably would have only given it a 2 or a 3 because it would have been way to sweet.

Chicken and Rice Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
This recipe is a great starting point for an easy casserole. You can use whatever vegetables or cooked grains you have on hand which makes it very versatile. Today I made it with quinoa and brown lentils instead of rice and blended mozzarella and cheddar cheese because I did not have enough of either. On hand today was red pepper and peas and that is what found its way into the casserole. It was delicious. I highly recommend this to anyone! The only reason this recipe is not a 5 star is because 8 tablespoons of flour for the roux was far too much. But other then that, follow the recipe.

Watermelon Granita with Champagne

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
This is quite good. I was making it for kids, so, I used sprite instead of champagne. The kids loved it. I cut back on the sugar significantly because the watermelon I had was incredibly sweet already. I would make this again, with champagne next time for an adult crowd. This recipe made more than 4 servings, but, is an excellent way to use up extra watermelon. It took closer to 4 hours for it to freeze properly.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
I am a huge fan of anything lemon. For me, this was not lemony enough. The first time I make a recipe, I follow it exactly. The crust is fantastic though and our guests devoured them. I will make them again, but, will follow the other reviewers advice and add more lemon and the zest as well.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
Only reason I did not give this a 5 is because of the changes that I made to the recipe. I do not like to use ingredients out of a can if fresh ingredients are available. I used all fresh ingredients. Instead of the can of tomatoes, I diced 6 fresh tomatoes and added some fresh juiced tomato juice to add to the sauce. I used fresh garlic and fresh herbs. The meal turned out to be fantastic and when served with some steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes, it was very well rounded. Hubby loved it, although the kids passed because it was very "brown". Will make this again.
