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!

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.

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.

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!

Grandmother's Carrot Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
My husband liked this so much I actually made it twice in one week! For the mayonnaise, I used the do it yourself recipe from the "salmon deviled eggs and homemade mayonnaise" recipe on this site. I think that worked extremely well with the sweeter taste of this casserole dish. But I did only use about 1/4 cup of sugar, as suggested by other commenters. Also, it is really great right out of the fridge the next day--even better than when it is first done!

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Okay, my incarnation of this recipe was a bit of a stretch. We didn't have "pumpkin pie spice"--nor most of the ingredients that comprise it (it is made up of nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and ginger). I didn't have nutmeg, or allspice, and my only ginger was fresh. But I didn't let that stop me! I mixed in some cinnamon, paprika, shaved off some fresh ginger and... it was absolutely tasty! So I wouldn't let lack of particular spices stop you from experimenting with this recipe, you can hardly go wrong.

Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
This was tasty and healthy, but I think a lot of the tastiness came from my addition of apple cider vinegar, lime juice, and cumin!

Brown Rice, Broccoli, Cheese and Walnut Surprise

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
Delicious. Took other commenter's advice and cooked the brown rice in the vegetable stock, which worked out really well. I might even just cook the garlic and onions in with it instead of sauteing them in fat next time, too.

Kelli's Fried Green Zucchini

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
I accidentally bought a cucumber instead of a zucchini. I still made the recipe. It was awesome. I think that is a testament to how good this recipe is, haha!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
They turned out perfectly ONLY when I made them as small as the recipe called for and did the little fork design thing. So do that, and you have a 5 star cookie on your hands!

I did not expect this to be so delicious. I even make the filling and just eat it alone without the tortilla sometimes!

Roasted Spicy Garbanzo Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
These can be tooled with and made so many different ways-- different tastes, crispiness, etc. I like them to still be a little moist, and they taste like roasted & spiced potatoes to me!

Baked Acorn Squash with Apricot Preserves

Simple. Awesome. Simply awesome. I also think this is good with butternut squash. And marmalade is a good filling, as well.

Summer Berry Parfait with Yogurt and Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2010
This is SO delicious--and that is coming from someone who is nothing near a fruit lover! I don't even bother to layer it, I just mix it all together and am good to go. It is so easy to specify to your tastes, as well. I prefer more granola and a little less strawberries. This is going to become a breakfast staple for me!
