Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
Excellent! For those that thought they didn't cook through, follow the directions. These are NOT regular pancakes! You have to use only 1/8 cup batter on med-low heat, or they will be gooey and raw. And 1.5 pounds of sw. potatoes was perfect! That's about 3 med. sized sw. potatoes. I mixed up the batter the night before and it was so easy in the morning. Delicious with pecans.

Pear and Pomegranate Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
Delicious! The pomegranate seeds pop in your mouth and the dressing is very good - mine was room temp. I also added carmelized pecans, which I HIGHLY recommend.

Baked Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2012
These turned out great! I used a nonstick pan, so they only took about 12 minutes to cook. Definitely making these again. I also used unsweetened coconut, which is what I had, so I added some granulated sugar to the cornstarch, and it worked fine.

Indian Saag

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Something wasn't quite right with this recipe. It was just okay - maybe too much salt, or too much cumin, but I don't know. Too much of something, even though I added quite a bit of water to keep the greens moist. I was wondering what kind of green chile pepper to use - I used an Anaheim.

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
I only used shrimp and veggie broth because that's all I had. Really nice flavor - definitely want to add the spice as you go - I only used about half of what was called for. Served it over white rice with hush puppies on the side.

Persimmon Cookies II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
These are delicious! I used succanat instead of sugar, and it added a yummy hint of molasses and made the cookies darker and more attractive. I'm planning to give these as gifts for Christmas.

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie II

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Very good. I served with mushroom gravy, and next time will add some sage. I used 1 Tbs. nutritional yeast instead of yeast extract. I also added peas, used 4 carrots, and 5 potatoes. Hubby still wanted more potatoes.

Chinese Cold Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Added grated ginger and broccoli, and used only 1/2 the pepper flakes - very good. I doubled the sauce as others suggested, but it was very soupy. I think this is because I refrigerated my noodles ahead, so they weren't as starchy and sticky, sucking up the sauce. Next time I won't be doubling the sauce.

Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Can I give 6 stars? Unbelievably amazingly good! I took another reviewer's advice and processed everything together, including the walnuts - no cream cheese. Spicy, salty, sweet, savory - we could have eaten the whole thing for dinner with some toasted french bread. You have to try this recipe! If you don't like the balsamic, try red wine vinegar.

Artichoke Crostini

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Pretty good. I used marinated artichoke hearts. You HAVE to let it sit overnight, or it is boring.

Veggie Delight on Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Excellent on Foccacia Bread with garlic mayo. Make sure the eggplant doesn't get overcooked. Mushrooms are a must!

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I used 1/2 c. water, 1/2 c. applesauce, 1 c. agave, and 1/2 c. oil. Baked for about 20 minutes. More cakey, just how hubby likes it. Thanks for a great starting point.

White Bean Spread With Garlic & Rosemary

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
Definitely needs more oomph - I'd double spices, add some heat, like crushed red pepper. I like the concept, so I'm going to experiment with it.

Orzo and Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I only used 1/2 c. olive oil. I was hesitant about the corn and peppers combined with currants (or raisins, which I used), but it really worked together. Great textures, great flavors. My foodie hubby said it was the best pasta-type salad he had ever had. Definite keeper. I used 1/2 the pepper.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
Surprisingly good with the almonds. I toasted whole almonds on the stovetop, then chopped before processing it all together. As others have said, I recommend this method over the oven, especially if using sliced or slivered nuts. I only used 1/2 of the oil and it was great with rotini pasta - stuck in all the spirals. I added some diced tomato for color, and next time I might add some shredded zucchini and carrot.

Scrambled Tofu

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Didn't care for the turmeric taste, or how liquidy it was. Worth experimenting with though.

Millet Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
my muffins burned! I subbed cornstarch and soymilk/vinegar for the egg and buttermilk to make it vegan, but that may have made the issue with temp. I set the timer for 10 min, and they were all black on the bottom. The tops and middle were delicious and moist, so I think I will try paper cups next time and 375 temp. I won't be stepping away from the oven either.

Soooo good! It really hit the spot. Works great as 1 or 2 servings too.

Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
Nice flavor - made with tofu marinated in sauce and no cornstarch. Added broccoli and carrot. Next time I'll double the sauce and add pepper and fresh chopped garlic at the end, for more of a garlic pepper dish (my favorite).

Kale and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Just okay. Mixed reviews with the kids. I would add some frozen berries and OJ for extra sweetness and vitamin C to help absorb the iron from the kale.
