Maple-Drizzled Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
*This is a review for the muffin itself*: this recipe yields moist, lovely muffins with nice hint of maple flavor in the muffin itself. I followed the recipe w/the exception of using unsweetened applesauce rather than butter (to make it a tad healthier). I could tell I would find the glaze to be way too sweet so I didn't bother with it, and enjoyed the muffin on its own. Thanks for sharing!

Red, White, and Green Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
A good base recipe and very pretty, I only added some dried oregano, dried basil, and red pepper flakes for a bit more flavor since I knew it would be bland without that. The artichoke was a nice idea. I made it on flatbread since it was just me having it and it made for a nice dinner w/a side salad and some wine. thanks for sharing!

Spaghetti Squash Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
excellent recipe and a surprisingly delicious way to use up spaghetti squash! I highly recommend this one mainly because its so easy to put together and so tasty. I wasn't sure about this when I read the title, but I'm really glad I tried it. Thanks for sharing!

Kiwi Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Good recipe but it is a bit of a misnomer to call it "kiwi strawberry"...I found that it tasted mostly of banana. Excellent consistency and very tasty, just expected a bit more kiwi and strawberry flavor. I even used strawberry frozen yogurt as I didn't have vanilla on hand. I did love how easy this was to put together with all the fruits I usually have in the spring and summer, so I'll definitely still make it, maybe even play around with it to get the flavors I originally was looking forward to. Thanks for sharing!

Vegetarian Lime Orzo

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2012
a good way to use up extra zucchini and its easy to put together. I found it rather bland, though, so next time I'll increase the garlic and basil and maybe add some crushed red pepper. The lime gives it a nice tang...overall a good vegetarian option. Thanks for sharing!

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Good for a quick and easy appetizer, but nothing spectacular flavor-wise when eaten by itself. A dipping sauce is a must with these, otherwise its just like most other roll up recipes.

Spicy Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
excellent, spicy spaghetti squash. I already had some leftover spaghetti squash so that cut my prep time down considerably. I am vegetarian so I left out the turkey but kept the the recipe otherwise. This was an easy dish to prepare and much healthier than eating the same portion of regular pasta. thanks for sharing!

Banana, Chocolate, and Almond Breakfast Oatmeal

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
This is a really good recipe, but I also found it rather rich for breakfast. I do love all the flavors but I think I'd cut back on the sugar and use less almond extract (or maybe just use vanilla instead). The cocoa powder is also a bit too much for me in the morning so I'll cut back on that as well. This is definitely a great recipe, I'll just tweak it for my personal tastes. Thanks a lot for sharing!

Pineapple Jalapeno Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Great combo of pizza toppings, I love the spicy/sweet flavor, just be sure to drain those pineapple chunks well, and use fresh jalapeno if you can find it (i found it really makes a difference). Thanks for sharing :)

Cavatelli and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Simple flavors, easy preparation. I didn't really bother sticking with exact measurements on this one, just eyeballed everything and I really loved the end results. The flavors are classic and a great change from the typical pasta drowning in heavy red or white sauces. Thanks for sharing!

Moroccan Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
This is a good base recipe, but it definitely needed more flavor, IMO. I added plenty of cayenne and cinnamon, along with a some cumin and curry powder (as another reviewer mentioned doing), and that was a significant improvement. I really liked the garnish, and I appreciated how easy this was to put together. I love pumpkin soup, and this recipe is a a very good starting point. Thanks for sharing!

Pumpkin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
A great idea for a filling and healthy breakfast. The recipe could use a bit of a flavor boost so I used a few sprinkles of nutmeg, ginger, and cloves along w/the cinnamon. I think toasting the walnuts would also help. Didn't have avocado honey so I used regular clover honey and didn't really notice it. This is a great base recipe to tweak to individual tastes

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Excellent pancakes...I wouldn't change a thing. My mom doesn't really like pancakes and she loved these! The spices are spot on and the pumpkin flavor comes through beautifully. This is a recipe I'll be making often. Thanks for sharing!

Hawaiian Nut Loaf

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
The flavor in this bread was fantastic, and it is so easy to put together. I added 2 tbsp. ground flax seed, but other than that I stuck with the recipe. I didn't have any problems with dryness, in fact I had to leave it in the oven for 10 minutes extra because it wasn't finished in the center. My mom and I enjoyed this bread on its own, hot from the oven. I imagine it would be really good with some butter or cream cheese, as other reviewers have mentioned. thanks for sharing this recipe!

Tomato Cheese Melt

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Simple sandwich, great for a quick snack that won't ruin dinner...could use a few more spices to give the flavors a boost. Make sure to use a flavorful tomato in this one since it's the "star" here. Thx for sharing!

5 stars for easy preparation and the healthy ingredients (esp. when made with whole grain penne pasta. minus 1 star b/c it was a bit bland for me. A sprinkle of italian seasonings promptly fixed that, and I ended up having a lovely lunch. Thanks for sharing!
