Jalapeno Popper Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
I really loved this!!! I left out the bacon (i'm a vegetarian) and I left out the crumb topping (didn't have any bread crumbs), but other than that I stuck to the recipe. This would make a great snack for a small get-together. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Yogurt-Herb Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2011
Great dressing, and so healthy since it doesn't have oil! The only change I made was to use balsamic vinegar rather than cider vinegar simply because it was all I had available. I dont know how much that changed the flavors of the dressing but I still really enjoyed it. I've been looking for healthier dressings with a yogurt base rather than an oil base and this is a great option. Thanks for sharing!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
A nice, healthy side dish that doesn't compete with the other flavors in your meal. I did saute the onion and garlic in the butter for a few minutes before adding the quinoa and broth, but other than that I stuck to the recipe. I'm always looking for new ways to use quinoa because I use it as a protein source so often (I'm a vegetarian), so this recipe is a real gem for me. Thanks for sharing!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Incredible! I cannot believe I waited so long to try this out. The only changes I made were: 1) used 1/2 cup oil & 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, 2) baked in 2 9x5 loaf pans. It did take a little over an hour to cook thoroughly in my oven, not the 50 minutes stated in the recipe; but not every oven is the same so that's not such a big deal. I really love how moist the bread is and the combination of spices. This is going to be a part of my Christmas baking for sure. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Laurie!

Big-Batch Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
A good base recipe, but adding butterscotch chips and a little salt makes it a five star recipe. I scaled the amount down from 120 to 40, so I added about 1/4 tsp. of salt and 1 cup butterscotch chips. They took about 11 minutes to bake up in my oven and everybody was pleased with them. Thanks for sharing!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
A great cookie idea, but next time I'll use my own recipe for sugar cookies rather than the pre-packaged mixes. Thanks for sharing!

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Fantastic soup, only change I made was using veggie broth rather than chicken broth (I'm a vegetarian). The flavors came together nicely and it was a filling lunch for a chilly sunday afternoon. Thanks for sharing!

Double Decker Tacos

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
Delicious recipe and it was fun to make. I made a vegetarian version of this by using veg. refried beans (spread on the soft tortilla) and black beans I had cooked up with some onion, green pepper, and jalapeno were used as the filling for the crisp taco shells The tacos stayed together nicely and I just chopped up the veggies and let everybody put whatever combination of lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and sour cream they enjoy. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Sun-Dried Tomato and Bow Tie Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
A really great, easy pasta dish. I didn't have bow tie pasta so I just used rotini, and pine nuts are a bit expensive for my budget so I had to leave them out. Nonetheless, it think the pasta turned out really well and was a tasty weekend lunch. Thanks for sharing :)

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2011
This was a great meal, but I found it to be a bit dry for my tastes so I increased the broth to 1/2 cup and that made it perfect! Thanks for sharing, Madball :)

Tina's Greek Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2011
I really enjoyed this different take on stuffed peppers. I left out the lamb b/c I'm vegetarian, but I figure I can still rate the recipe on preparation and overall flavor. I enjoyed the filling but the recipe does make a lot of it (not really a problem I'll just have that on it's own tomorrow). I had this with some herbed feta i had laying around and the flavors went together beautifully. I roasted the peppers at 350 and left them in the oven for a bit b/c I like my peppers nice and soft. Overall, a really filling and flavorful meal, even without the meat. Thanks for sharing, Tina!

Garlicky Quinoa and Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
so yummy! The only change I made was to cut the amount of olive oil in half (as other reviewers had done) and I dont think that modification took anything away from the flavor in the dish. healthy and easy, quick to put together for a light lunch. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
yum yum yum! The only change I made to the recipe was to leave out the olives and put in some garbanzo beans instead (trying to make it bit more filling). This has a really nice flavor to it and I think it would go well with lots of dishes. Thanks for the recipe!

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
This is a very yummy side dish, but I did have to adjust the cooking method to get the dish cooked in time for dinner. Rather than cook the potatoes in the oven the whole time I boiled them until about 1/2 done and then continued with the rest of the recipe (but of course left out the water). I really enjoyed the end result, but next time I'll add a bit more lemon (personal preference). Thanks for the recipe!

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
Definitely restaurant quality; only change I made was to using sesame seed oil rather than vegetable oil. Good recipe for using up zucchini!

Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
These are absolutely decadent and so easy to put together. The only thing I did differently was to leave out the walnuts b/c I didn't have them in the pantry. my bars came out of the pan just fine and they were easy to cut after about an hour of cooling time. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I know I'll be making these a lot!

Baked Basil Fries

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
These are really tasty fries, and a nice taste from the frozen ones in the grocery store. i think I'll cook them longer next time to get the crispiness that i prefer in my fries. Followed the recipe exactly and they were a delicious snack. Thanks for sharing!

Teriyaki Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
A surprisingly tasty dish and so so easy to put together. I was very unsure about this so I made enough for myself to try before serving it to others later in the week. I was very pleasantly surprised! I do recommend using garlic powder rather than garlic salt, and using either teriyaki sauce or soy sauce...the recipe as written struck me as being a bit too salty so I made those changes but otherwise stuck with the recipe as written. This is a lovely and different side dish, I'd recommend it!

Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
A great way to use up fresh veggies sitting in the crisper. I didn't have mushrooms so I left them out but otherwise I stuck with the recipe. I really liked how the flavors in the vegetables comes through, but my boyfriend insists on much more seasoning for his food, so I'll probably add a few spices next time. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
