Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
Even though I screwed up the directions.. (I threw in all the veges in step one together instead of sauteing the onions, carrots, garlic first, it still turned out great! Used canola oil, seasoned with ground cumin&coriender mix, and italian seasoning. I did not use chili powder (not friendly with my stomach), and used finely chopped serranos instead. Did not cause heartburn! Served with corn bread. Thanks for the tip on using a food processor... I used my mini chopper. Thanks for the tip on rinsing the beans well, and using low-sodium cans of beans. Loved it. But was A LOT of work despite using the food chopper.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
I had to make so many changes to this recipe to make it great, and I cannot give it five stars. Infact, after reading most of the "most helpful" reviews, I practically had a new recipe. I tried it twice (once the original way, and once with changes), so I will submit the newly created recipe... wait for it...

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
Good recipe. First time I made a salad like this... Good for potlucks where you have vegetarians. I made it as a side for thanksgiving. Read the other reviews, decreased the sugar to 1/2cup, added one can garbanzo beans, one can black beans, and did NOT increase the other ingredients, and it was a great 5 bean salad... not having had this salad before, I can only go by what my family and friends said, and what I tasted ofcourse! One tip I still need... could not find anyone who knew what wax beans are... I ended up using canepelli beans? I am not sure what the can is supposed to read in the recipe, but the grocery store did not have a can of "wax beans". Suggestions? What I liked best? Makes a lot, costs little, and almost no work at all. Also, I used apple cider vinegar instead of distilled because I needed that for the cranberry chutney I recipe and did not want to buy both. Worked great.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
Amazing! First time I made any kind of bread from scratch. I cant believe how easy this was!!! I did decrease the sugar to 1/2 cup, the salt to 1/2 tsp, the baking powder to 2 1/2 tsp, and increased the oil just a tad after reading the other reviews. One big pointer: I made the first batch exactly as stated (with the above modifications) and it was PERFECT. But the second batch, I was making for thanksgiving party of 30, two lasagna size trays, so I multiplied by 5 (60 servings). The outside cooked faster than the center, so I had to decrease the heat to 300/325 and cook for a little over an hour. So, just mind that you need to decrease cooking temp and increase time if you increase the servings to avoid having burned-on-the-outside/raw-in-the-center bread. The toothpick test works really well. My co-workers would have liked it sweeter, but for me the decreased sugar was perfect. Thanks for the easy recipe!!!

Cranberry Chutney I

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2004
Absolutely the best!! I made it for thanksgiving. I had a fresh orange on hand, so I zested it and added, and it made a difference (I love orange peel), but it would have still be great without it, as another user said. I did cut down the vinegar to 2TBsp as recommended by most. (I doubled the recipe and used 1/4 cup). I was not sure which apples to use, so I asked someone, and they recommended MacIntosh (they break down better)...worked well. Amazing recipe! I loved it! This will be my standard cranberry sauce from now on. Thank you very much!!! Those who did not try it because they dont like cranberries have no idea what they are missing!

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2004
Absolutely amazing! The first time I made enchiladas, and they were better than most restaurants. Couple of changes/additions: I cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast in salt, pepper, garlic & ginger paste, a stick of cinnamon, a couple of cloves, and a cardamom. then for the step in the recipe, before sauteeing the onion, I added cumin seeds to the oil, and added chopped serranos. Huge hit! Served with canned vegetarian Trader Joes refried beans, and canned corn kernels as two sides.

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
This turned out pretty good. It was extremely easy when I used my mini food processor to chop everything up. I used a red bell pepper instead of pimento peppers, and used fresh seranos as well. One person asked me for the recipe. The plate got cleaned up fast even though I made enough for 35 people. Used fresh Trader Joes salsa, and decorated with cherry tomatoes and parsley for a stunning platter! Thanks for telling me to double the cream. I did, or else it would have never been enough. Next time, I will double the rest of the ingredients as well. Made 8 12" tortillas, spread thin. I have made this over and over and over from requests from friends at pot lucks to the point that I am tired of making it, but all my vegetarian friends love this a lot! And, it is never enough! They always ask me to make more. I usually use twice the amount recommended for the number of people attending... and it is the first dish to go. I serve it with fresh salsa from trader joes, very nicely presented in a chip and dip platter. A little time consuming if you are making that much, but worth it for the folks that love it. Try it! I gave it only 4 stars initially (I thought it was good but not stunning), but everyone has loved it so much, that I must update to 5 stars.
