Asparagus Appetizers

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I thought that I liked asparagus when I made this recipe--but I was wrong--I only like boiled asparagus, apparently! Fresh cooked asparagus has a distinctly different taste and it wasn't too great for my palette. I also used buttermilk bread and would not recommend that as it did not blend very nicely with all of the other flavors involved. Also, I find asparagus is hard to bite off pieces from, so eating it kind of turned into a difficult mess... which could probably be easily solved by cutting them into 4ths instead of in half. ALSO I would NOT recommend freezing them to harden everything up unless you really are going to be cooking them much later on. If you are going to cook some of them same day it may be better to refrigerate instead of freeze because after taking them out of the freezer I had to let them thaw for nearly 30 minutes anyway so I could 1) cut them and 2) get the toothpicks out. Nonetheless, my husband happily ate them, so they are not a lost cause!

The Best Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
This is one of the best sandwiches I have ever had, and since discovering it in April I have made it 5 or 6 times already. If your ingredients are fresh there is basically no way to go wrong with this one! I frequently omit the alfafa sprouts and it does not suffer for it at all. Same goes for the sesame seeds. It is a really simple recipe with high quality results.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
I made this recipe a few years ago and it came out great, except these are a little messy as far as muffins go. I had 4 bananas starting to brown, so I whipped out this recipe again two nights ago. I don't have a muffin pan anymore, so I used a small glass dish, about 8in by 5in. What an excellent surprise! It came out like a cross between banana bread and coffee cake, and had the perfect amount of moisture left in after baking for 20min. I didn't have brown sugar either- regular white works just fine for the topping. And personally I think the butter worked great in this recipe! Also don't be afraid to throw in one more banana... 4 is the perfect number.

Spinach Veggie Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This was the first time I attempted making any kind of casserole whatsoever- and the results were very good! It does take a lot of things on the stove going at once (not a bad idea to prepare with someone else because of this), but everything turned out nicely following this recipe exactly. Next time I will add yellow peppers and tomatoes as well, and a tad bit of minced ginger sounds good too!
