Easy Hummus

Reviewed: May 5, 2002
This hummous was excellent, and received rave reviews from my guests. I didn't miss the tahini, and loved the addition of fresh jalepeno, it was just spicy enough. Next time I will double the amount of the garbanzo bean liquid to 2 Tbsp. for a more smooth texture. But there will certainly be a next time!

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2001
This lasagna was delicious! I am not usually impressed with vegetable lasagna, but this recipe had a great taste. I left out the mushrooms, and reduced the amount of mozzarella because of cholesterol consciousness, and still the recipe was fantastic. This recipe is just as tasty made in advance and baked for 1/2 the time and refrigerated for up to 3 hours; then cook the other 1/2 time just before you serve it. I tried this so I could spend time with my company instead of being tied to the kitchen, and it worked well.

Chinese Noodle Pancakes with Asparagus

Reviewed: May 1, 2002
Wow!! This is now one of my favorite recipes, and it really impresses a crowd! I made them exactly as directed, except for cooking the noodle pancakes over medium-high heat, not high. They were burning on high. I let them fry for about 3 min on either side. This time may vary depending on how well your pan conducts heat. I will make these again and again and again! It is much easier than it sounds, and totally worth it!

Cincinnati-Style Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2002
A great chili recipe! I've tried to find a good vegetarian version and this one is the best so far. The addition of atypical chili spices may make you skeptical, but the finished product is worth the risk! I added two medium vine-ripened tomatoes, chopped, when the canned tomatoes were added to increase the flavor. Next time I will halve the water, as ours was too watery and we had to simmer it uncovered for about 10 minutes extra. However, that 10 minutes made the beans just tender enough, and I would add them half-way through the simmering time to make sure they are tender enough for the next time. Another suggestion would be to halve or leave out the brown sugar, it was a bit too sweet for my taste, but will definitely make it again!

Black and White Cookies I

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2002
This is a great recipe! It is worth the time, although I'm not sure if I thought that while I was making them.... But I certainly did after I tasted them! I ran out of confectioner's sugar and ended up melting both white and dark chocolate chips for the frosting, which actually was a big hit. I almost burned the first batch, though. I had to turn the heat down to 325 degrees and only baked them for 9 minutes-they were perfectly golden brown. A must-make!

Rae's Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2001
I was disappointed in this recipe. Maybe my expectations were too high, after all those rave reviews!! :-) If I made it again, I would leave out the cumin, which had a much stronger taste than I expected, and make it more spicy. It was, however, extremely pleasing to the eye, with all those colorful beans. I served it over rice with bread.

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2001
We loved this recipe. I added more spices, as we prefer things really spicy, but the basic recipe was easy and delicious. It really impresses guests, and makes the house smell wonderful. I also used a white potato instead of sweet, and left out the raisins.

Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2002
I liked this soup, but the addition of the swiss cheese really disagreed with me, and I wasn't interested in the leftovers. Next time I make this, I'll use cheddar cheese. I used a homemade vegetable broth, and added a dash of cayenne, which made it much more flavorful. The texture is perfect, though, and overall it's a very hearty meal! I chose to serve it with a green vegetable and small slices of bread from a baguette.

Very Fruity Rum Punch

Reviewed: May 5, 2002
This punch went over very well, we doubled the recipe and probably could have quadrupled it and still been short. I didn't think there was enough alcohol in it, so we remedied that by adding about 1/4 cup more per gallon, and that did the trick! I also added fresh pineapple to the floaters and thought that gave it a good kick. I did have trouble finding frozen pineapple concentrate so used pineapple/orange/apple juice and it was great!

Baked Vegetables I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2002
This recipe is a favorite! I took the advice of a previous reviewer and mixed the vegetables with the onion soup mix and olive oil before adding the vegetables to a 9x13 inch pan. I also added the potatoes 15 minutes prior to the other vegetables, and I should've put the carrots in 5 or 10 min. before the other vegetables as well, as they were still rather hard. I think this recipe is based very much on the onion soup mix-if yours is salty, don't add any extra salt!! Otherwise, it's perfect, and such easy prep!

Christmas Fudge

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2002
This recipe was MUCH too sweet. One bite and you're done. It looks very festive, however, and is good to bring to holiday parties. Beware the sugar, though!

Easy Cheesy Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2001
This is such an easy recipe, and a great grilling alternative! Try it instead of mashed potatoes with your steak, and if you're trying to go low-fat, substitute a yogurt based spread and skim cheese. Still very flavorful with the salt/pepper and onions. Very quick, and cooks just as advertised in the time allotted - perfectly tender potatoes!

Asparagus with Parmesan Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2002
This recipe is a great addition to any risotto. I served it as a side dish with the Mozzarella and Sun-dried Tomato Risotto recipe from this site. It was a hit! Next time I'll use an olive-oil based cooking spray instead of the olive oil for a lighter taste. Also, try using bigger asparagus spears, or cut down on the cooking time for baby spears. My baby spears were overdone at 12 minutes in the oven.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2001
My fiance loved this recipe, but I would prefer to make it again with less cheese. Maybe 2/3 of what it calls for.

Slow Cooker Mediterranean Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2001
I thought it definitely needed salt, and would have preferred more spices. In general, it was good, but I probably wouldn't make it again. It is really easy, though!

Veggie Ranch Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2002
Surprisingly good! I wasn't sure what to expect with this recipe, but I was extremely pleased with the result and my guests loved it! I ended up cutting a little of the ranch dressing out, as it seemed to call for a large amount. It has an interesting mix of flavors, and cooks to perfection. I'd definitely make it again.

Sugar Cookie Cutouts

I've never found a better sugar cookie recipe. These are not too sweet and frost perfectly - no breaking! They are nice and thick.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
This is the best recipe! Omit the salt, and you'll never notice it - a great alternative to those store-bought seasonings that are high in sodium.
