Harvest Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
I so wanted to like this recipe especially after all of the hard work grating the veggies, but it was a bomb. Total bummer. My husband described it as cardboard like in flavor. I think it has potential with mega modifications, but it is really missing something. Salt for starters.

Italian Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
Bravo! I thought I would have left overs to take for lunch the next day. Nope, it vanished before my eyes. This is a winner. Kind of like a vegetable lasagna without the noodles. I didn't have fresh herbs and dried worked great. I used bread crumbs instead of stuffing as well.

Broccoli Noodles and Cheese Casserole

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
We give it 5 stars for its potential. It is rather bland when you take the first bite, but flavor develops after chewing. The great thing about this recipe is that it is a wonderful starting base where you can get creative with adding other ingredients to give it more flavor. Our toddler was a fan.

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
So delicious, but very rich. I use half butter and half olive oil. I think you could reduce the butter as well.

Mini Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
great recipe - use an entire 12 oz bag of green beans for this recipe. Might even double the whole recipe for a larger crowd.

Haddock Marinara

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Great recipe. Well received by the family including our toddlers. I didn't have stewed tomatoes, so I skipped it and also used less sauce as the recipe submitter suggested. Topped w/ mozz and Parmesan cheeses. Next time I might try just Parmesan. Served over linguine with a spinach salad for a great meal.

Browned Brussels Sprouts with Orange and Walnuts

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I love this recipe! Using fresh brussel sprouts requires more cooking time than stated. Also, the orange juice reduced before the veg was tender enough, so I added some more and covered the pan to steam them a little bit. Someone's review mentioned that they sprinkled a little blue cheese. I didn't try this, but think it would go nicely and will try this next time.

Root Vegetables Baked in Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
It was good, but not something we'd repeat often. A lot of effort and not enough bang for the palate buck.

No Bake Choco-Peanut-Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
couldn't get these to set properly, very sweet but still yummy. Next time I would do less sugar at 1.5 cups, 2 tsp vanilla, 4 Tbls peanut butter and boil for 3 or 4 minutes.

Easy Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I had fresh peaches that needed to be used up and followed what another review suggested and the family loved it with vanilla ice cream. It was very similar to a blueberry cobbler recipe I have made. I think you could substitute any fruit. Melt one stick of butter in an 8 x 8 pan, mix 1 tsp of lemon juice with 1 cup of sugar and about 4 cups of peeled, pitted sliced peaches (5 peaches) together; put this mixture on top of melted butter. Sprinkle cinnamon to suit your taste over top. Then mix together 1 cup of flour with 1 cup of sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 cup of milk. Place this topping all over the top of the peaches. Do not stir. Let bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Vegetarian Bean Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
My family gave this 5 stars. The raisins are a really nice surprise. Simmer this covered to keep it saucy enough to go on rice. Next time I'll add more cumin.

Potato and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
This was a good recipe! A really nice warm recipe for winter. The sauce sort of makes a gravy. I used 1 can broccoli and one can cream of celery soup because that's what I had on hand. I also substituted plain yogurt for the sour cream and used multigrain saltines. Very pleasing dish. Nothing bad to say about it, just a good recipe.

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
For such a simple recipe, these are great cookies. While these are not the very best cookies I've ever had, they are excellent tasting when you consider how easy and kid friendly this recipe is. I forgot the vanilla and didn't notice. I used another reviewer's recommendation and used Pillsbury yellow cake mix. I also followed advice to cut the chocolate chips to 1 1/2 cups and it was a good ratio, but like one reviewer said, "Is there such a thing as too much chocolate?" Would like to try adding chopped walnuts next time. I baked on 2 different sheets - a non stick and an aluminum insulated sheet. They came out much better on the non stick sheet and seemed to fall apart a bit on the other one. Perhaps this is why some reviewers have had trouble w/ this recipe?

Cheesy Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
Great recipe! A little spicy for my toddler, but plain yogurt cooled it down nicely. Will make again fo shizzle. UPDATE: I add fresh lemon or lime juice and that really makes the flavor fab. Everyone loves this.

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Yum! Made this for a party and it was a hit. I like that there's only a little sugar unlike some other recipes. I used olive oil instead of grapeseed oil.

Pasta with Gorgonzola and Sweet Onion

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
Recipe requires almost double the sauce than called for. Very rich and good, but not great. I added sun dried tomatoes to help it out, but you could get creative w/ other ingredients and I bet it would be nice. Probably won't make again.
