Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Great recipe with lots of room for adding your own spin on things. You can stick w/the beef or you can just go vegetarian and use black beans along with the refried beans. I followed as written for my first time trying the recipe out but I can see plenty of room for changes. I think other reviewers had good ideas about freezing some and using them for other meals, or even making smaller versions and serving them up at parties as an appetizer. Thanks for sharing :)

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Good potatoes, definitely easy to put together. I would recommend cutting back on the oil and salt; I found them to be a bit too salty. Also, it would be better to add the onions halfway through the cooking process, b/c (as others have mentioned) my onions got burned before the potatoes were done. Really enjoyed the flavors, just needs a few adjustments. thanks for the recipe :)

Basil Pesto Sunshine Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
A yummy sandwich and a great option for lunch. The only change I made was to toast the bread, other than that I followed the recipe and enjoyed every bite. Thanks!

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
A great idea for using zucchini, but rather bland as written. I added black pepper, garlic powder, and parsley. I also tried to drain a lot of moisture from the zucchini so the patties would form. These taste great with some marinara sauce on the side for dipping. Thanks for the recipe!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
I loved these snickerdoodles! I've never made this type of cookie before but I do love eating them, so I thought I should give it a shot. These are simple to do and the results are addictive. I didn't have cream of tartar (I never do) so I just used lemon juice (2 tsp. for every 1 tsp of cream of tartar) and that worked very well. The process of coating the dough in the cinnamon sugar becomes much easier (and less messy) when you just put the mix in a baggie and drop the dough balls in 1 at a time. Enjoy :)

Panzanella Panini

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Simple and easy, with all of my favorite flavors for summertime. Using quality bred and a good mozzarella will make all the difference. Thanks for the recipe!

Pistou Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
A very nice and filling soup, it has great flavor once you add the pistou. I sauteed onions and garlic in some olive oil before adding the rest of the veggies and the broth, and I added the zucchini and beans last (as others mentioned) b/c I knew it would become too soft if I added it with the potatoes and carrots. Enjoy with some crusty french bread and parmesan over the top!

Vegetarian Open Faced Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
A delicious sandwich that is also pretty filling. I left out the mushrooms b/c I don't like them and I broiled the eggplant by itself before putting it on the sandwich, but other than that I stuck with the recipe. I enjoyed this with a bowl of soup for a healthy and light dinner; perfect for summertime. Thanks for the recipe!

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Delicious pasta primavera, perfect for enjoying spring vegetables. I ran out of balsamic vinegar so I left it out and I thought it was still really tasty. Next time I make this I'll be sure to try it with that as well. The recipe seems like its asking for a lot but it is well worth the effort of getting all those veggies. Thanks for sharing!

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
This is my very first cake from scratch, and I am so pleased w/the results! I think the key to this cake is (as many other people have mentioned) really taking the time to beat the butter and sugar together, then adding each egg separately and beating it all together for a good while. halfway through the baking process I realized I ran out of (of all things) vanilla extract, so I used almond instead and I highly recommend making this with almond extract. I did increase the milk to 3/4 cup as others suggested. My end result was a moist and fluffy cake that had a lovely almond flavor. This recipe was so easy and the results were so wonderful that I don't think I'll be using the box mixes again. I see now that there is a huge difference and taking the time to make this from scratch was well worth it. Thank you very much for this recipe!

Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
One of the best grilled cheese sandwiches I've had in a long time. Usually I stick w/american cheese and tomato w/buttered bread. This was a a fantastic idea! I did have to make a few changes b/c of what I had in my fridge. I used fresh jalapeno peppers, I left the sour cream out and just used cream cheese, and I used american cheese rather than colby-monterey jack. This really is delicious. Thanks for the recipe, I know I'll be making this often!

Moroccan Potato Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
A fantastic recipe, and easily adjusted based on how much heat your family can handle. I'm vegetarian so I left the chicken bouillon out and used veggie stock rather than water. I didn't have white pepper so I just stuck with black pepper, but other than those two things I stuck with the recipe. This is an excellent recipe and very hearty, perfect for a cold, rainy day. Thanks for sharing :)

Cream of Wheat Griddlecakes

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
These are great griddlecakes! I did make a few changes to the recipe to make these a bit healthier calorie-wise. I cut the amount of oil to 1/8 cup, used nonfat plain yogurt rather than sour cream, and used splenda rather than white sugar. The cream of wheat gives a great texture to the griddlecakes. I've even frozen a few for breakfast during the week! Thanks for the recipe :)

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: May 13, 2011
WOW! I was practically shoveling this stuff into my mouth; I couldn't get enough! I love all the flavors in this salad and I made the recipe almost exactly as written. The only change I made was to use red onion rather than green (all I had on hand) and add 1 tsp. ground cumin to the dressing mix. Absolutely delicious summer salad with readily available ingredients. Thanks for this recipe, I'll be using it often!

Queenie's Killer Tomato Bagel Sandwich

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Simple, healthy, delicious. Can't really ask for much more in a bagel sandwich. I sprinkled some lemon pepper over the tomatoes, but other than that I stuck with the recipe. I could add all sorts of veggies to this and still have a great sandwich. Thanks for the recipe :)

Greek Salad I

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I made this salad exactly as written and enjoyed it very much. All the flavors went well together and the dressing was nice and light. I keep a lot of these ingredients on hand so I'll be making this often; maybe next time I make it I'll try some of the other suggestions such as adding red wine vinegar and a touch of sugar. Thanks for the great salad recipe!

Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
Very good recipe! I did have to double the spices, but that's a personal preference thing and I like things very spicy. I'm a vegetarian and I ran out of veggie stock so I used water instead and it turned out just fine; I bet its even better with the veggie stock. I didn't use the pine nuts b/c they are too expensive for me right now. The raisins really do a great job counteracting the spiciness of the quinoa, and the garbanzo beans just round out the whole dish. It's a great, healthy option for lunch. Thanks for the recipe!
