Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
This was great. I made it for my class and they all loved it. , I subbed for whole wheat flour. My kids were eating whole grains and didn't even know it. I made it into one big huge cake and put it in a bundt pan to hold its shape while baking. I was a little too impatient, so I didn't let it rise enough before baking, but if fluffed right up during baking and it didn't seem heavy at all.

Vegetarian Kale Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
This is sooo delicious and healthy!! I used a little more kale. I think this recipe would be even better with chickpeas instead of white beans.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I really liked this cake. It was fluffy and light. I used a little bit of canned pumpkin for some of the oil (maybe 1/4 cup of pumpkin and 1/4 cup of oil) and it turned out great. I think I would use dark chocolate powder to bump up the chocolate flavor and add walnuts. I didn't frost it as it was sweet enough to stand on its own.

Couscous with Chickpeas and Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I liked this recipe, but I thought it was a little too sweet. Next time, I'll add celery and zucchini to the carrots to downplay their sweet flavor.

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
This recipe is incredibly bland. I would say it needs twice the amount of salt and some pepper. I would also suggest sauteing the onions with garlic before adding it to the casserole.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup II

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
it tasted good, but it kind of looked like baby food. next time i won't even puree it and just keep it as chunky potato/veggie soup. Cauliflower was expensive when I went to the store, so I used broccoli instead. Added some parm cheese on the top. Also- this made WAY more than 6 servings.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
I subbed half whole wheat flour for the all purpose. I also proofed the yeast. I rolled the dough out thin and it was perfectly crunchy and chewy.

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
This is the most authentic hummus recipe I've found. There's no need for heavy spices- just simple flavors.

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
These did turn out pretty mushy-but I'll try them again without as much pre-cooking. I have to say though, I liked that the pre-cooking made it really quick. I didn't even need the oil cause the water from cooking allowed the spices to stick. I used garlic powder, paprika, italian seasoning, and kosher salt.

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
This was okay as directed, but it was too thick and too bland. I ended up adding 3 cups of chicken broth so that it was more like a soup and less like a thick stew.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
These were amazing. I made a batch, but since I figured two people couldn't eat all these cookies at once, I froze them. They froze well, but they were gone in two days. My fiance actually likes them better frozen.

Hot and Spicy Tofu

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
This was great. It was perfect for a date night in. I used steamed broccoli as the veggie. My fiance was nervous that it would be too sour, but it was great.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
This was amazing. It tasted like a lower fat version of cinnamon rolls. I didn't have any buttermilk, so I used water and it came out just fine. I made this into muffins for a quick snack/breakfast.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This was very easy and tasty. It didn't take too long to make and the crust was perfectly crunchy. The flavor was slightly sweet-which was good considering the baking soda can be a bit overpowering. I didn't use raisins and I'm glad I didn't. It was perfect as-is.

Onion Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I added carrot, garlic, and fresh mushrooms to this and it was amazing! I'm gonna try to make this with quinoa to make it a complete meal.

Whole Wheat English Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
These tasted great, but didn't have a great look to them or a nice rise either. Next time, I'm not really sure I'll follow through with the second rise, cause I notice that the one side forms a kind of crust and it doesn't look very nice. I also made them with 2 cups all purpose and 2 cups whole wheat.

Vegetarian Cassoulet

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
my fiance thought this was good, but I think I used a heavier hand with the herbs cause it turned out a little too herb-y for me.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
These are amazing! Perfectly seasoned and spiced. This made way to much for the two of us to eat- so we froze some for later. This recipe is perfect exactly as written.

Zulandt's Lentil Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
I liked this recipe. I don't think it needed the cheese at all, but it added a little bit of saltiness. I also don't think it needed to really be baked at all- but maybe that's just me. Everything was wonderful and smushy before I put it in the oven, but it was a little bit dry after baking. Next time I'll just throw it all together in a casserole dish and call it a meal.
