Steff's Shepherd Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
I didn't use cream of mushroom soup, and used ground turkey rather than beef. Also used onion powder (along with garlic and pepper) to season the meat. I flavored my mashed potatoes with hot curry powder-- YUM, that added a wonderful taste (and smell!) To moisten the mashed potatoes, I made them with the appropriate amount of water and milk, then added about 1/2 C chicken broth. This counteracts the need for any creamed-soup (+ makes it dairy free and cuts the calories.)

Gridiron Brownies™

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Soggy? My brownies didn't turn out soggy at all. I used the cocoa krispies (rather than rice krispies) and crushed them extremely well (until it was flour-like.) I followed the recipe exactly, however, was out of all-purpose flour and used whole wheat-- still turned out perfectly. I used slivered almonds for the little football people lined up in the middle. Refrigerate overnight after frosting the brownies- IMO makes them better. *The key is crushing the cocoa krispies until finely ground. Only problem I had was the endzones-- the rice krispies fall off easily, which you could prob press down with a spoon, though it alters the look a bit. What an awesome superbowl treat!! [I took photos, but it wouldn't let me post directly here]

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
I was skeptical, since ginger tends to throw my taste buds off, but these were delicious! Definitely needs to be chilled before rolling into balls & pressing. I didn't make these during the holidays, but these would be the perfect Christmas cookie.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
This was great. I only put 1 tsp white sugar and didn't have fresh ginger root, so I put about 1/2-1 tsp ground ginger. I wasn't expecting it to be good, and I'm not sure if I'd like it with all the fresh ginger, but everyone loved it. Easy to put together too.

Death by Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Awesome- I made 3 versions of this. All of them using the german chocolate cake, sugar-free cool whip, raspberries, and pero rather than coffee (works fine.) For Valentines I made one with pink/red layers by making vanilla pudding and dying it with food coloring. I made another with pink (dyed) cool whip, and lastly one just like the recipe- minus the toffee bars. All of them delicious! Think I like vanilla pudding layers best.

Instant Pistachio Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
SO easy. Next time I'll add chopped walnuts and that's all it needs. I used both sugar-free pudding and sugar-free whipped topping. And call me crazy, but I found this to be especially delicious when I dipped those square-type pretzels in it. Try it.. I dare you.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Delish! I had a "phew" moment after reading reviews. All I had were black beans and didn't know if they'd be any good, luckily so many reviewers used the same thing. Some people didn't finish theirs and said "Um, they're interesting..", others loved them, as did I. I'm sure I'll be making these again, next time I'll put in the soy sauce, which I omitted this time due to its sodium content. Everyone should at least try these.

Spinach Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Beautiful! Made these for the superbowl, but did tweak the recipe a bit. I omitted the butter, decreased sugar to

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Delicious! I didn't have red pepper on hand, and used cayenne pepper-- turned out VERY spicy, but we love it that way.

Black Bean Spinach Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2009
Made this for Easter and used vegan substitutes. It rocked--despite the fact that soy cheese doesn't melt. I made one version with chicken strips for the non-vegans at the table, and everyone's reaction was surprisingly good, we loved it!

Vanilla Berry Parfaits

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
You can make this so many different ways. I had no yogurt, so I put shredded coconut on the bottom, layered with frozen (thawed) mixed berries and whipped topping, topping it off with cinnamon. I made another one using Kashi Crunch cereal in between layers- so good.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Everyone LOVED this frosting. I used vegan butter, and instead of evaporated milk I used non-dairy creamer (made from coconut milk.) Worked perfectly, people had a lot to say about it, some calling it "melt in your mouth" and others "so creamy and good." A keeper.

Awesome. This worked using olive oil instead of butter. Also used rice milk. Quick + fantastic!

Finnish Pulla

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
PERFECT. This works with soy milk, which is what I used. My grandpa is a linguist and has done quite a bit of service in Finland, he knew exactly what this was when he saw it. I had some trouble in the mixing process-- no bread mixer, so didn't get as much beating into it as hoped, but it didn't cause any problems. 2nd stage of rising I put it in the oven @ 170 degrees F for about an hour. Beautiful bread. Oh, I cooked only one loaf at first, and it does NOT need 30 minutes.. it started getting too done at 24, I'm guessing 20-22 would've been even better.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Yum. I love spinach, and these were perfect. I did not use ANY butter or cheese, and instead used a bit of olive oil, and rice milk in place of real milk. Sauteed onion and garlic + a few shakes of onion and garlic powder, then once I added cooked frozen spinach, I put in a few shakes of Italian seasoning. Will be making again and again.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
Best burgers on the planet. I've made these multiple times- using whole wheat ritz rather than bread crumbs, & I don't tend to use the green bell pepper. Everyone must try these! They also freeze well.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Several people I know would never consider giving these a 5-star rating, just because of the black beans. I did not use instant coffee and was able to taste a hint of black beans. For me, the health-woman, I found them to be the best brownies EVER. I loved the texture. Other people, those who would give an honest opinion, said "these are weird, why does it have this texture?" As for me-- my new favorite brownie. Update: people love these! It tends to be the people who enjoy being healthy & like the taste of "healthy." I don't think I'll ever make brownies with flour again!

Turkey Gyros

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Mine turned out pretty bland-- I didn't have any dill, which may be part of the problem. Also used ground turkey. Seasoning was lacking big time and the taste was nowhere near a real greek gyro, but it was good enough that I'll keep trying this recipe. I'll just have to experiment with seasoning amounts and make sure to use the dill. Everyone else who ate these put cheese on theirs and loved it-- some even ate two.

Tart Lemon Triangles

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
I used 1/2 white sugar, 1/2 splenda, and it worked perfectly. I made with a different crust (oatmeal based) which was ok, but I'll have to try this recipe's crust next time. Delish.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
I didn't care so much for these, but everyone else loved them. I had no problems with either the dough or filling, I did add 1 tsp of non-dairy creamer to each, and I used all natural PB (no sugar) which had been in the fridge, so was very firm, no problems with stickiness. Fun cookie!
