Vegan Borscht

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
Love this recipe. I'm making it again this year w/my excess beets. I love that you use the greens. I don't have celery in the garden so I leave it out, everything else I have. Oh, no fresh dill either--I use the dill seed I saved earlier this summer. And I don't put in the tofu. It's really great w/o it. I bet it'd be great w/it too, but I never have any on hand(or veggie broth). This freezes great. I make a big batch or two and eat it all winter long out of quart jars in the freezer. Cracked pepper and a dollop of sour cream and I'm good to go. Thanks for sharing!!

Egyptian Koshari

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2011
Great meal! We served lemons on the side and it added a lot. It's hard to believe such simple ingredients can have such a great complex flavor. We're picking a country a week to sample a meal from and this was our Egyptian meal. I'm a veg so it worked great. All four boys ate it and the 5 yr had three servings!

Crustless Almond Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
This was pretty good. I doubled it and it took more than double the time to bake. It also seemed a little eggy to me. It was easy though. I can't complain about that. A great mid-week dessert. Alright, I was a little more careful witht he directions this time and it came out great. Smooth, creamy and delicious! I've tried it w/the sour cream topping and w/apricot jelly topping. Today we're going with black cherry jam topping. Endless options w/this easy recipe. I've used no crust, ginger snap crust, and graham crust. I'll try a chocolate version next time.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Super easy to make. I made it on the stove (no microwave) with a little extra butter. I made it 2 hours before the birthday party--so no overnight chilling. And it was fine. Rolled out fine, looked great. I will be making this again for sure!

Fluffy Banana Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Great cake! I used a whole tsp of bkg soda as mine was a little old and questionable. I layered the cake with sliced bananas and whipped cream and frosted the outside with cinnamon whip cream and sprinkled it with mini chocolate chips. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to the cake as well. The 4 boys and hubby scarfed it down. A nice change from chocolate cake all the time.

Best Ever Chocolate Cutout Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
wonderful cookies. I was worried as I mixed them together--the dough seemed really dry and crumbly, but after chilling it rolled out nicely. Even cut-out from the second and third round of scraps were good. Very chocolatey-definitely a keeper.

Mini Mexican Quiches

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
My dough was a little buttery/greasy, so I may add a Tb or 2 of flour next time. But what a great, quick appetizer. Could use any filling or use regular sized muffin tins for a heartier snack.
