Tempeh Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Fantastic! I followed the recipe almost exactly, except used a bit more tempeh and mayo. The taste and texture are convincingly close to the real thing. Perfect for those who like tuna salad but would rather avoid tuna because of mercury, dolphins, overfishing, etc...

Zulandt's Lentil Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
I added lots to this recipe: garlic, carrots, celery, a bay leaf, Parmesan cheese, and no-salt seasoning. I also used leftover rice, which it's great for. I ended up needing less water for the lentils; about 4 instead of 6 cups water. Overall it turned out really well!

Cheesy Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
I changed this recipe a lot! I used real garlic and onions, real cheddar cheese, and added veggies like zucchini, celery and carrots. It turned out great! A nice variation on macaroni and cheese; real comfort food. The way mine turned out would be four stars, but because I altered the original recipe so much, I'm only giving it three stars.

Baked Ziti III

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
Followed the recipe exactly, except used veggie meat substitute as I'm vegetarian. It worked out great! Yum!

Aunt Peg's Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Quite good! Doesn't make much (about four bowls). It got much thicker as leftovers, so I used it as pasta sauce, which was delicious.

Vegetarian Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
This turned out like mush. It never set, even after baking 10 extra minutes. It also was not enough to fill the pan. Otherwise it tastes good.

Cottage Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
The recipe as it is would not be four star, but with the following additions it was delicious and very healthy and will go into my regular rotation: basil, garlic powder, radishes, shredded carrot and herb salt. I would also use half the amount of green onions as it's a bit too onion-y.

Friendship Soup Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I took the risk of giving this soup as a gift before trying it myself...based on all the rave reviews I figured I could. I put on the recipe card to use one can tomato sauce and one can tomato chunks. I also used veggie broth instead of beef, and left out the rice, as rice and noodles seemed redundant. I doubled the pasta instead. Well, I finally made it myself, and it was really good! Not as good as fresh soup of course, but better than canned. And so easy! One thing: I got 1 liter (1 quart) jars, and they were too big. I had to stuff tissue paper in the top to make it all fit.

Pasta Broccoli Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This is basically glorified Mac and Cheese. Not bad, but not so amazing either. I added celery, onion, and carrots to mine, and used fresh garlic. I was not so pleased with the nutmeg flavor, and it was a bit bland. I would try using more spices next time and leave out the nutmeg.

Artichoke and Chickpea Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
This was delicious! I used 2 tomatoes and a can of peeled tomatoes because that's what I had. I also used about 2 tablespoons lemon juice and only 1 1/3 cup broth. It came out with a stew consistency, and I served it over brown rice. It was so quick and easy to make, and my husband and I both found it very tasty. Into the rotation this goes!

Brussels Sprouts in Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
Meh. I had less than a pound of Brussles sprouts, so I tried to adjust the amounts for the sauce. It came out too watery, so I must've done that wrong. As for the flavor, it was okay but nothing special. It definitely needed something more, perhaps just salt and pepper.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
I have made this many times and my husband and I love it! I use dried kidney and black beans and soak and cook them myself. I also add corn, chopped black olives, green onion and chopped jalepenos from a jar to the black bean mixture. I serve it with guacamole and salsa, which we prefer to sour cream. Delicious!

Taco Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This is really good taco seasoning! I took the advice of others and halved the salt, and it was still pretty salty but not too bad. I also halved the entire recipe, and it still made enough for several taco nights.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
The changes I made: I used 1/8 c. sour cream and 1/8 c. mayo. I used 1/2 c. Parmesan rather than Parmesan and Romano. I also used a hand blender to thoroughly chop the spinach, and I mixed the mozarella in with the other cheeses as well as putting a little on top. It came out absolutely delicious! I served it with toasted pita bread which worked well.

Roasted Garlic Potato Soup with Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Wow! This was absolutely divine! I am vegetarian, so I used veggie broth instead of chicken, and smoked tofu instead of salmon. In fact, I think it would be equally as delicious without the smoked tofu / salmon. The roasted garlic really gives this its special flavor. By the way, I had to roast the garlic more like 35 or 40 minutes rather than 25.

Cauliflower with Dijon Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
I agree with others that mustard and cauliflower just do not go well together. Changes I made: steamed the cauliflower, tossed it w/the mustard mix and a little Parmesan, put it in a baking dish and topped with the Cheddar and some breadcrumbs, and broiled it in the oven for five minutes. All in all, even with the changes, it still wasn't good. Not terrible, but just not good. Definitely won't make again.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This has a very unusual flavor, but it is quite good. My only problem was that the cashews were difficult to actually get onto the fork with the broccoli....they seemed to always separate and it was kind of a chore to physically eat this dish. Other than that : delicious!

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This soup is okay, but nothing special or amazing. It's easy to make, and quite versatile. I followed the recipe exactly, except I only cooked it one hour instead of 90 minutes. It makes a LOT!!!!

Carrot Soup 'a la Louise'

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I would've rated this a 3, but my husband loved it, so I am giving it a 4. This soup is obviously supposed to be pureed, but I think the person submitting it forgot to put that in the recipe.....in the picture it is pureed, and I cannot imagine it otherwise. I also used veggie broth and real butter, which added a nice flavor. I added extra dill and a few drops of tobasco, but I still found it a bit boring and bland.

Vegetable Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
This recipe's a keeper. I'm vegetarian so substituted smoked tofu for the ham, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. By the way, for those wondering just how much broccoli is in two cups: it's about one head. I would also recommend steaming the carrots until tender-crisp. Very tasty!
