Vegetarian Reubens

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I couldn't be any happier with this recipe! First of all, I don't like rye bread, I don't like sauerkraut, and I'm not too much of a fan of 1000 island dressing, but for some reason I was ecstatic to try these and as soon as I took the first bite, I was sold. My review is just one in a long list of reviews that say essentially the same thing: These are amazing! Things we did differently: We did not shred the cheese, but instead put it on top as you would with any other sandwich. We did not use the full 1/3 of a cup of dressing as the recipe for 2 sandwiches called for - instead we used slightly less. But seriously, these were just so good! They are super fast to make and great for families that have people who are not all vegetarians. My husband was able to put meat on his while I ate mine as is. Can't say enough about these except that I plan on having them again. (and again, and again...)

Grilled Apple and Swiss Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
I like most things that incorporate apples and I found this recipe accidentally and was very excited about it. My husband refused to try it, but I really loved it. The only change I made was that I used butter on the bread instead of oil. I'm normally not a fan of rye bread, but it worked really well for this recipe. And as someone else said, next time, I would do thicker slices of the apple.

Vegetable Quesadillas

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
As others mentioned, it needs "something". Whether it be garlic, salsa, lemon, salt - it just needs something, otherwise it's incredibly bland. I tried adding ranch dressing, but didn't add a lot and so couldn't really taste it. I also doused it in cheese and couldn't really taste that either. I made it without onions or mushrooms and still had a ton of vegetables to try to fit into the tortillas. I managed to make it all fit, but if I had done onions and mushrooms - it never would have fit. I also noticed a lot of people did not add the carrots, but I did and think they were necessary to give it a slight variety in taste. They steamed just fine and were well done (I steamed for 4 minutes). A lot of people said turning over was hard, but didn't give any suggestions for *how* to turn over. So I took two plates and put them on top of the tortillas, then flipped the baking sheet and plates and was able to get the tortillas moved back onto the baking sheet with little issue. Flipping over any other way was nearly impossible (I tried!). These were incredibly filling and both my husband and I agreed that one quesadilla split in half would have been perfect for two of us. You can always make a small side if wanted, like rice or beans. I think next time we're going to try garlic and add some chicken or steak to his and my chicken-free chicken to mine. Oh, and watch the tortillas carefully as they burn quickly. I broiled for 3 minutes each side, and that was perfect.

Pineapple Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I love pineapple so I was very excited about this recipe. It was good, just a little too mushy and gooey for me. I couldn't get past the texture of the food - the taste though wasn't bad. Not sure I would make it again though unless I tweaked it a little. Also, spray the bottom of the pan or add more sauce as mine ended up sticking badly.

Easy Peanut Pasta Twists

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
So much to say, where to start? The ketchup part scared us and probably scared most people which is most likely why this recipe has never been rated. This recipe makes far more than 4 servings - probably about 5 1/2 and if you planned on having a side dish, like we did, then you could probably cut the recipe in half. The taste started to grow on me and my husband after awhile, but then shortly thereafer we got to the point where we just couldn't eat any more because the taste started to make us nauseous. He said you have to have an aquired taste for peanut butter and garlic. I personally think there's just way too much peanut butter. A whole cup is what it calls for. We used about 3/4 of a cup and it was still way too much, so be forewarned about that. If you don't like peanut butter this is not the recipe for you. While it was interesting to branch out and try something new, we won't be making this again, and sadly ended up throwing most of it away. It literally churned our stomach after we ate about 3/4 of our servings.
