Thai Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
This was my first successful meal with tofu. I pressed it by putting a plate with two cans on top for about 15 minutes, and then fried it with LOTS of oil. The rest of the dish was pretty easy, but too mild by itself. I added half of a habanero pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, green peppers, halved grape tomatoes, and some cayenne pepper and chili powder. A 14-oz can of coconut milk provides enough sauce for the extra veggies.

Watermelon Vodka Slush

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
This is good but strong! I just put all the ingredients in a blender and then put the bowl in the freezer.

Easy Cranberry Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
This was good! I only used about a cup of honey, and it was sweet enough for me. If you like bigger clumps of granola, try pressing it down into the pan before you bake it, and don't stir it while it's cooking.

Caesar Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but I experimented with the ingredients until I found something I liked. I didn't have croutons or Worcestershire sauce, but I added some red wine vinegar, and that helped it out. Yum!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Meh. This was okay. I added frozen broccoli, another can of tuna, another can of condensed soup, some celery, and more cheese. It was pretty bland, and I think without those additions it would have been even worse. If you think you'll have leftovers, add the potato chips to the portions that you'll eat now - as someone else mentioned, they get soggy and gross in the fridge.

Butternut Squash-Sweet Potato Ginger Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
If I had followed this recipe to the T, it would have been extremely bland. Here's what I did to make it yummier: curry powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, 3x the amount of yogurt, 2x amount of ginger. To make it easier to peel, I cut the squash in half and baked it at 400 with some water in the pan. I let that cook until I had my sweet potatoes prepped and in the pots. By the way, this recipe makes A LOT. I have at least two weeks' worth of lunch. It took me about an hour and 15 minutes to make it.

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Yum! I'm giving this four stars for how it's written, and five stars with how I prepared it. I halved the recipe, but still used a full 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes. I also added about 2/3 of a big jar of Pace Picante - Hot and a handful of chopped cilantro. I added about 3/8 c of rice instead of just 1/4. And I probably added more peanut butter - I just globbed it in. The result was a thick & spicy soup. Yummm... Will definitely make this again! I might try adding some shredded chicken and coconut milk to make it different, but it was definitely great the way I made it this time!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
These are pretty tasty! If I were gluten-free these would definitely be a staple. My husband was grossed out by them, others did comment on the weird texture. Also, occasionally I did run into a bit of the bean's skin when eating. But overall, taste is great, preparation is a cinch, and they're healthy!

I didn't add sage, but it was still delicious! Easy and healthy, too. :)

Buffalo Chicken Wings III

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
A good recipe to go off of! I followed it exactly the first time (with extra spicy Frank's), and it was delicious! However, I would like it more spicy. It seems like it can be easily modified, so I think next time I'll try sautéing some garlic and peppers in the butter.

Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This is a good base recipe. Added some cooked broccoli and onion, and used half and half instead of milk. Fast, easy, and delicious! I made this with the cream cheese crust recipe from this site. I'd used it before in fruit pies and loved it; it was a little too rich for this dish, though.

Cherry-Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
This was okay. Might try again with fresh cherries instead of the filling. Made with the cream cheese crust recipe on this website.

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
The store was out of peppermint extract, so I just crushed the candies in the blender and mixed them directly into the chocolates. Also, I missed the part about refrigerating the semi-sweet layer while preparing the white chocolate layer, so the final product ended up a bit... muddy. But still delicious!

Beans, Some Like It Hot!

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
I didn't think this was BAD per se, but nothing to write home about. The volume of spices in this recipe made the sauce seem kind of pasty/gritty. Maybe I'll try it again with half the ginger that's listed, but that won't fix the pasty problem.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
This is delicious. :) I added 1 tsp of ginger and some chocolate chips and cranberries. I could have done without the cranberries, but the chocolate chips make it extra good! Thanks for the great recipe.

Buckeyes I

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
Used 4 cups of sugar instead of 6, and they're still very very sweet. Might try reducing it further next time, or using a peanut butter with no added sugar. Otherwise a great recipe!
