Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
Wowza, these are delicious. My husband usually requires butter on his waffles - not this time! What a healthy alternative. I had no germ on hand so I subbed additional flax/flour. I served with a strawberry puree...yum.

Calypso Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
This is an awesome blend of flavors - don't be afraid of the combination. It's very satisfying and even my kids loved it. I didn't find I needed to puree the soup; it was cooked down pretty well on its own and we liked the small chunks of beans that were left. Thanks, will make again.

Empanadas

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
I used a simple apple pie filling for these & they turned out great. They were much easier than I anticipated. I got 10 small empanadas out of the recipe & served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Very good! I used white rice because my brown rice takes 40 min to cook versus the 20 it took the white, and I didn't have the time to spare. For the amount of soup this recipe makes I recommend doubling the spices. Served with homemade wheat bread.

Rum Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
5 stars once I figured out how to form them. The only way to roll these is to stick the "dough" in the fridge for about an hour... otherwise it's like a thick goopy batter and impossible to handle. Used rum extract instead of rum, which worked fine, and coated half of mine in coconut.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Delicious - my family couldn't get enough. I replaced 3/4 of the flour with whole wheat flour and added 2 T honey for kicks. Works great for sandwiches.. I sent it in my son's lunchbox today.

Maple Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
Best fudge I've ever had! I increased maple extract to 2 teaspoons - PERFECT. My husband, who doesn't like fudge normally, raved about it!

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
This is a little spicy; I added a tablespoon of peanut butter to my bowl and that subdued it AND added great flavor. Wonderful, healthy and flavorful soup.

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
Absolutely delicious. A perfect fall dish. Not all that spicy though. Great served with crusty bread!

Gingerbread Boys

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
I love that the dough popped right out of the cookie cutter and I didn't have to reshape deformed cookies on the sheet! The dough holds up great, is very managable and sturdy. I subbed molasses for corn syrup and will next time add an extra Tbsp, as there wasn't quite enough bite for me. Decorated with Royal Icing I.

Jamaican Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Didn't really have much of an issue with "crumbling." Although it does happen just a tiny bit around the edges of the patties during flipping, I found it far less troublesome than most other veggie burgers I've made. No need to add any "adhesive" into this recipe -- just really dig down deep with your hands & SQUISH when forming your patties. We loved the nutmeg flavor (I subbed cinnamon for the allspice and wheat germ for half the bread crumbs.) Next time I will decrease the amount of onion - 1 large is plenty. Served on Belles Hamburger Buns from AR, with muenster cheese & tomato. Awesome!

Great for the holidays. I rolled mine in crushed candy canes rather than powdered sugar. They were festive and delicious!

Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
Delicious and flavorful. I took a short-cut for the sake of time by chopping the onion in the food processor and then cooking, rather than cook then puree. I served with chicken over rice...yum~

Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
The cookies are just okay; quite cakey and a bit bland. I am thrilled about the frosting, though (hence the ***** rating,) and as I have some extra, am going to make butter cookies to use the excess on. I used maple syrup as I had no flavoring. You MUST try this frosting!!!

Chicken Biscuit Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Added some extra veggies (celery, corn, etc.) and used all milk rather than broth. Kept biscuit dough gloppy, as suggested, and baked at 350 for 14 min. 450 would have been way too high a setting. My kids LOVED this casserole.
