Fresh Asparagus Risotto

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
This was delicious! I made it veggie-friendly by using vegetable broth. I also left out the white wine and just used a little extra vegetable broth. Also subsituted the heavy cream with milk and it was still PLENTY rich and delicious. I didn't have white pepper - so just used black. A lovely way to use all that fresh asparagus!

Easy Strata and Variations

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
I made this for a big group on a weekend get away and it was a hit! I added asparagus, plum tomatoes (seeded) and field roast vegetarian Applewood 'sausage' and used sharp chedder cheese. Nobody even new the 'sausage' was vegetarian! Served with a fresh fruit salad and sweet bread and it was gobbled up by all!

Mediterranean Pasta with Greens

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
This was wonderful! I made it with whole wheat spiral pasta and added a 1/4 cup of feta which was a great addition. I also used dehydrated sun-dried tomatoe rather than oil packed. I soaked the dried tomatoes in warm water with a few drops of oil for about a 1/2 hour. Worked great. This recipe will definitely be coming out for company!

Squash Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
If you like goat cheese and butternut squash, you'll love this dip! I served with sliced baguette and substituted roasted pine nuts for the walnuts. Also added a little bit of salt. For a more mild flavor, you could substitute cream cheese for 1/2 of the goat cheese. Very beautiful appetizer. Lots of great comments!

Irish Pumpkin Potage

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This was lovely! I loved the spiciness of the cayenne with the pumpkin and nutmeg. I did make this recipe vegan by substituting vegetable stock for chicken broth and soy milk for the milk. I found I also only had to use 2 cups soy milk instead of the 4 1/2 cups of milk the recipe called for. I followed another reviewers suggestion and pre-cooked the pumpkin. Worked like a charm. I will definitely make this again!

Sour Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
DELICIOUS cherry pie! I used 5 cups of frozen sour cherries which tasted so much fresher than canned! I also cooked the filling on the stove top and let it cool prior to filling the pie to ensure the filling set up nicely.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Like the other reviewers I doubled the spices. I also baked in a bundt pan - baked for 45 minutes rather than 1 hour. Perfectly done. After the cake cooled, I dusted with powdered sugar. Beautiful and tasty!

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This is a delicious pie! Know that it is definitely a lighter and more custardy pumpkin pie than you might expect. As written it is far too sweet for our taste, but with the brown sugar cut to 1/2 cup it is perfect! Also, a note for those using fresh eggs. I was using eggs straight from our chickens and no matter how much I beat the eggs, egg pieces were still rising to the top of the pie during baking. I finally figured it out and got rid of that problem by straining the eggs through a mesh sieve before beating them into the mixture. Problem solved! The whites of fresh eggs are just so much firmer. Really lovely pie!

Kale Puttanesca

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This was lovely. I doubled the kale, used kalamata and green olives instead of black, and rinsed the achovies. Delishious!

POM Chocolate Covered Arils

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Absolutely delicious! As one party-goer raved, "It's a chocolaty juice party in your mouth!" Easy too! Used Ghiradelli bitter-sweet chocolate chips. Yum!

Coconut-Curry Lentil Stew Served over Quinoa

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
This was good - and I will definitely make again - but with some tweaks... We found the tablespoon of salt too much for the quinoa - so would definitely reduce that. Also, the lentils took much longer to cook - and required more liquid. But all in all a great recipe!

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Followed the recipe exactly except used about a 1/3 cup of fresh chopped jalepenos. Excellent! The superbowl party goers loved it. Next time I'll try adding even more jalepenos for more zip!

Chocolate Earl Grey Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
Absolutely wonderful! Instead of dropping onto the cookie sheet, I rolled the dough into small balls and then pressed slightly. Then topped with decorative sugar. Lovely! Don't cook more than 8 minutes. Perfect, dense, cake-like cookies!
