Tofu Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
This was great! I used feta cheese and didn't have any garlic, but it was still delicious. I'm big on healthy recipes, so this is a new favorite!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
These were pretty good. I was going to rate it four stars, but first I would have to see how it is with these adjustments, which I would follow next time: as one other reviewer said, add more pumpkin and possibly more sugar--but, then, probably reduce butter so they're not overly moist. All in all, a good way to use my leftover pumpkin.

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2008
Yum! This was really good, and I wasn't even sure if I liked this combination. I did make some changes, based on reviews; I added 1/4 cup extra orange juice and two tbsp plain yogurt, for extra moisture, plus I switched half the flour to whole wheat. I'm only giving it four stars because I think it would have been dry otherwise. With these changes, it's 5 star, really tasty!

Mary Anne's Moist and Nutty Carrot Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
While the flavor of this was pretty good, I encountered several problems. First off, I did make substitutions--I made only one loaf and used half brown/half white sugar, and 1/4 cup apple sauce in place of oil. These were suggested, however, and when I cooked it for 45 minutes in the 9 by 5 pan, it looked great. However, the next morning when I cut it up the middle appeared not to be fully cooked. I had checked it with a toothpick, and it had come out clean. I did think this was good, though, and worth re-trying. Next time, I will: 1) drain the pineapple, 2)use (for one loaf) 1/2 cup oil (might replace it with apple sauce), 3) use a total of 1/3 cup sugar, maybe less, and finally 4) cook it shallower pan so it will cook more evenly. Just something for others to think about.

Red and Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I made this before as written and it was good, but I made some changes and it was irresistible! First, I used 1.5 times the mustard/vinegar mixture, used 2 tbsp mayonnaise and 6 tbsp yogurt instead of all low-fat mayonnaise, and used all sweet potatoes. It was really, really good! It might just be personal preference, but I much prefer sweet potatoes.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
This was great! It was extremely simple, and turned out very flavorful. It reminded me of shrimp dishes I've had in Chinese restaurants before. I followed the recipe almost exactly, with a few changes: 1) I can't handle spicy and put in just a few red pepper flakes, and 2) I made 1 1/2 times the sauce. I recommend this, but the portions given serve about three as a side dish, not six. Enjoy!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
This was great--really tasty! The honey mustard sauce was very good-a little spicy to be used as a dipping sauce, but it formed a really nice gravy consistency after baking. I will definitely make this again!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
I absolutely love this kind of frosting! I use it on red velvet cupcakes all the time (it perfectly fits 24 cupcakes). My mother used a recipe from a cookbook before, but I like these proportions better. Definitely recommend it!

Awesome Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
These muffins are great! The only reason I rated it four stars was because I substituted apple sauce for the oil, but the texture came out wonderful; it was very moist and light, and quite delicious!

Stir-Fry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
This is absolutely delicious! The sauce is good, but is made excellent with 1 tbsp honey. It tastes like the "brown sauce" you get at a Chinese restaurant, only sweeter and tastier. The ingredients come together really nicely to make this very enjoyable! Plus, I added peanuts for decoration and crunch.

Delightful Apple Spice Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
These muffins are very "delightful." I used the recipe for "Delicious Apple Sauce," and that created chunks of apple in the muffin...delicious! And I added crushed pecans, which gave it a nice touch. I highly recommend this recipe for anyone who likes apples.

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
This is delicious! When I was making it I was doubtful as to how flavorful it would be, but if you add the right amount of salt and pepper (and in my case a pinch of ground cumin), it's really very good. I will definitely make this again soon!

Orange Juice Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This cake is very good:glaze is very moist and delicious. 5 stars: orange supreme cake mix, not yellow, and adding more sauce. I baked in a regular cake pan, not a bundt pan, and it took about 40 minutes. It is soooooooo good! The glaze is delicious! I don't even like cake, and I was in heaven with this!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VII

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
These cookies are so delicious. I made some adjustments; adding more brown sugar and less white, and putting in a tablespoon of baking powder b/c I didn't have self-rising flour. Other than that, it was very good; the edges are crispy, but the middle are moist and chewy.

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This bread is very good. It is nice and moist, but doesn't completely fall apart when you pick it up. The creamed corn was a nice touch, really made it good. The only thing is mine needed to cook for longer than it says.

Easy Salsa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
This meatloaf was very good. It was not hard, like some are, but was very moist. The only thing is you really need a lot of salsa, possibly double the amount. I used a peach mango salsa, and it was really good. Also, I think extra cheese will add some nice flavor to it. I will make this again.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
These muffins are really good! I never bake often, and mine came out great. I added a couple of things, but I think they would have been great without it, too: first, instead of 1/3 cup butter I put in 3 tablespoons peanutbutter and 2 tablespoons regular butter. Also, I mixed in 1/3 cup granola and 1/2 cup walnuts at the end, and that makes a big difference. I can't wait to make them again!
