Beef Stew with Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2004
Very good and very easy. Nice too because you don't need beef broth. I seasoned the flour before coating the beef cubes, and next time I'd add a bit more garlic and double the mushrooms. Yummy!

Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2004
Absolutely delicious! I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I also melted my butter and then added the lemon juice and garlic powder to it and adjusted the amounts to suit my taste. Then I dipped the scallops in the melted butter before putting them under the broiler, and i turned them over about halfway through. The butter mixture that was around them on the pan got nice and brown and was delicious poured over the finished scallops. Yummy--definitely as good as any restaurant!

Awesome Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2005
This is a great pasta salad because it has things that just about everyone likes. I added zucchini, a red bell pepper, and some fresh mozarella, and i only used a small can of sliced black olives. I put about 8 oz of Italian dressing on the night before [Newman's family-style italian, our favorite] then another 8oz right before serving. Great recipe!

Orange Cranberry Drops

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
These are fabulous! Don't skimp on any of the orange ingedients--I even used a little extra zest. And I also splurged on the dried cranberries from the produce department, which really seemed to make a difference. I doubled the recipe to and got about 40 nice sized cookies. Used them in a cookie exchange, everyone thought at first glance that they were chocolate chip, but were very surpised once they tasted them. And everyone asked for the recipe! These are going to be a Christmas tradition from now on!

Watermelon Summer Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
This is absolutely delicious! I used kalamata olives, which were great. I also soaked the onions for about 30 minutes--I don't normally like raw onions but they were great. And the mint is critical--I considered leaving it out, but ended up making a special trip to the store to get it, and I'm glad I did because it made all the difference. Try this!!

Pudding No-Bake Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2005
These are super sweet. Very easy, a good summer cookie because you only need the microwave. My 6 year old daughter and I made them and she loved the fact that she could do pretty much everything herself. We used chocolate fudge pudding and they are nearly as good as brownies!

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
Delicious and unique salad. Freshly squeezed lemon juice made the dressing wonderful, but I only pured about 2/3 of it on the salad and it was plenty. Served this with Christmas dinner and everyone loved it!

Michelle's Famous Washed Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
This was perfect for Thanksgiving. I doubled the recipe and used half water and half OJ. Important to skim all of the foam off, which is easy enough to do when it's boiling. Will definitely make again, it's delicious!

Baked Ziti Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
i tweaked this a bit--used homemade marina instead of jarred sauce, part-skim ricotta, and whole wheat pasta. Let it stand for a few minutes when it comes out of the oven, so the pasta can absorb the bubbling sauce. Very simple recipe and really tasty!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Absolutely delicious. I added some breadcrumbs to the butter and cheese mixture, which gave it a nice texture. Better than any I've had in restaurants.

Traditional Style Vegan Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2014
I hate reviews that don't stick to the original recipe, however since I only made some minor changes, and since it was so good, I'm reviewing it and giving it 5 stars. For the potatoes I just added a bit of vegan cream cheese, some earth balance, and a splash of soy creamer. Since others commented on the bottom layer being dry I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of a tomato and it kept things really moist. Not a fan of vegan cheese so I left that off. I served it with the vegetarian gravy recipe from this site and it was perfect. None of us were really fans of traditional shepherds pie before we were vegan, but everyone loved this. Try it!

The Most Delicious Green Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
I used frozen beans, and it was still very good, although I want to try it with fresh. I cut the bacon into smaller, bit-sized pieces, and then as other reviews suggested fried the onions in the bacon fat, which made them really delicious. The tang of the vinegar was great!

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
I really enjoyed this. I used Splenda brown sugar (1/2 cup) and probably could have cut back a bit. I'd also cut back on the cinnamon a bit. The cranberries made it delicious, and I added some chopped walnuts (very fine chop, mixed some in and sprinkled some on top) which gave it a nice crunch. Serve it warm in a bowl with a little milk!
