Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
We followed this recipe as written - except I added a second clove of garlic, and since the frozen corn that we use is a 16-oz bag, we added the whole bag. Some folks recommended cutting the oil/vinegar in half. I did not, and would not... it is perfect the way it is written. Thanks for sharing!!

Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
This way of making popcorn was great! After making three batches of popcorn, we ended up changing/doing the following: The total amount of oil/butter in the recipe is 5 Tbs. Our boys like extra butter flavor, so we used only 1 Tbs. of oil and then used 4 Tbs. butter (we use Earth’s Balance non-hydrogenated vegan ‘butter’). The larger amount of butter to oil gave us the stronger buttery taste we wanted. Since I have always used ½ tsp. of salt for every ½ cup of corn, I added all salt at once, along with the corn and 4 Tbs. (1/4 cup) butter. Melting and cooking the butter right in the pot was great. Having the extra oil in the pot - instead of pouring it over the finished popcorn - prevented the corn from burning – a great tip! As the recipe said, I took the pot off the stove when the kernel pops were about 2 seconds apart - no burning or sticking! Another great tip! We like to stir in nutritional yeast flakes (available at health-food stores) before eating. It gives a nice ‘cheesy’ flavor and is very nutritional. I now have a new way to make popcorn! Thanks for sharing!

Barbecued Lima Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
I just finished making this recipe. It is Very Good! I doubled the recipe, and used one package of Yves Meatless Canadian Bacon (6 oz.). I diced and cooked the bacon in a small amount of butter before adding to the beans. The only thing I did different (besides using veggie bacon) is I added the raw onions at the end, along with the ketchup, sugar, maple syrup, etc. I did not like the thought of boiling the onions with the bean water, and then throwing out most of the onion flavor with this waste water - I love my onions and didn’t want to loose the nice onion taste! My wife, who does not care for lima beans, did not like the smell of the plain beans when they were cooking, but, when everything was mixed at the end and baking in the oven, it smelled great. My wife and I, and our two boys loved the recipe. Thanks for sharing! By the way, the doubled recipe fit nicely in our large bean pot.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
We just finished eating this for supper. VERY Good! Our boys loved it. We made a vegetarian version with veggie chicken. We doubled the sauce and added broccoli. The broccoli was a nice addition. I ate my last bowl without rice…kind of like a chicken, broccoli, curry, coconut soup! Great recipe... Thanks for sharing God bless!
