Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I'm a vegetarian, but I made this about two week ago for my boyfriends mother who had just had back surgery and couldn't get out to get food or make her own. I meant to take a picture of the finished product but my boyfriend ate it while i went to find my camera and he's not a fan of chicken, but the combination of sauce and cheese was enough to win him over. I did change a few things, tripled the garlic breaded the chicken after salting and peppering it first as someone else suggested I baked it first for half the time without the sauce the added the sauce and cheese. I also added Parmesan cheese to the stuffing for more taste. Like others i had leftover stuffing , but i don't see a way around that as the smallest package of ricotta is 15oz so just have some manacotti or shells on had to finish off your stuffing. I do plan to make this again for a special occasion or party or whatever pops up. It is very easy and you can make it ahead of time.

Mushroom and Spinach Ravioli with Chive Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Great Recipe!!!!!! The Pasta dough is very easy to make and i am first timer to pasta dough, however if you are rolling it out by hand i would recommend a pasta roller, i am a little sore from it, but well worth the effort if you have the time. Also it is totally possible to roll it to 1/16in and thinner. you just need space, patience and flour. :-) The filling is amazing. I used fresh spinach that i cooked with the mushrooms and onions and ended up blending it all in my blender and if you don't have time to wait for the cream cheese to softened, then it really helps, or a food processor. My only issue was with cutting the dough with a cookie cutter, i did not like that and ended up eyeballing it with a pizza cutter. I think i might get a pastry bag when i do this again to fill it faster. Took me a little over three hours to make this and there was enough for 6 with a few leftover. Oh as i was pressed for time at the end i did dumped some spaghetti sauce over it and ran out the door and it was still really great. I didn't use any extra salt or pepper as i forgot that step and the filling was great without the added salt, but i would have preferred a little red pepper if i remembered. As someone else stated, this is a very forgiving recipe.

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2011
Wow this is awesome!! I have made several other quinoa recipes with beans, peppers and corn and whatnot and this is really good. I made my own pot of black bean just plain, no salt and made the quinoa with vegetable broth. I didn't have jalapenos or the chipotle peppers stuff so i used five serrano peppers and a teaspoon of ground cayenne red pepper. This is a really great recipe for emptying out cabinets as someone else suggested and the fridge of veggies you don't want to spoil. It's not quite spicy enough, but that can remedied by some hot sauce i would say.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
This was my first cheesecake ever and it came out really well. I have made three in the past month. Two for thanksgiving family functions with a request for another for Christmas. One of the things I modified was the procedure to make the raspberry mixture. First i combined only the raspberry sugar and water, once it was all mixed I strained it then put it back on the fire adding the cornstarch after. I also added an extra tbsp of cornstarch as i felt it was little too thin after the first cheesecake. You can also use this recipe to make a strawberry, blueberry, wild berry, etc type white chocolate cheesecake. The other thing with this recipe is that you have a lot of raspberry mixture left over if you use only the 6 tablespoons so I used a pastry bag and added the raspberry mixture to the middle half first then made a nice design on top and used a knife as suggested to marble it.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
Fantastic and alterations are very easily made. I made mine in a rice cooker and doubled the quinoa leaving the beans at the same amount along with the rest of the ingredients. i used water instead of vegetable broth and olive oil instead of vegetable oil and forgot about the cilantro and its still great. i will add more veggies i think next time.

Curry-Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
This is very good. I had a pound and a half of shrimp and doubled the recipe adding imitation lobster meat to make up for the half pound shrimp i was missing. I didn't quite follow the recipe and made it in a Wok instead of skillet, but it came out great. I did however substitute flour for cornstarch, i wish i hadn't, the sauce was delicious before the addition of flour. Next time i'll use the cornstarch.

Eggless Tofu Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
This Tofu quiche was really good. I did use pepper jack cheese as others did and used a 14oz container of tofu with a little added milk to make sure the blender could smooth out the tofu. After making this quiche and one in which i used eggs and a tofu combo, i much rather prefer the tofu taste to the eggs and this quiche was eaten first at the party and not the other. lol

Meat and Spinach Ravioli Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
Awesome recipe! I used lamb instead of ground beef and my fiance can't get enough of them. I did sweat some onion before browning the meat and used my blender as i don't have a food processor, I would recommend chopping up your fresh spinach though before cooking to make it easier on your food processor or blender. haha.

Maple Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2012
I rated this recipe last year about this time and still love it, I just wanted to add to the review. This year I actually had a nice big 5 gallon bucket from Lowes with a lid to Brine it in for two whole days before putting it in my new convection oven. I made a twenty pound turkey. I used some of the brine to baste the turkey, but not much about a cup. I substituted the brown sugar for a brown sugar I made with stevia instead, so basically molasses and stevia in the raw. I did double the recipe though since I needed more than original recipe called for with such a large turkey. This Brine is super delicious though. For those of you using a brine for the first time, make sure you rinse the brine off before cooking/baking otherwise the salt will overwhelm you.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
I just tried risotto for the first time three days ago, it was boxed risotto, but good i guess. I made this one about an hour ago and its really good. I used Pearl Rice instead of the Arborio due to budget constraints, (Arborio = $7 a bag and Pearl = $3) also used vegetable broth (vegetarian) instead of chicken broth. Still very good. I'll be making this again with about 3/4 the amount of mushrooms.

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
This recipe pretty much incorporates everything i really wanted in a cookie. I did make a couple changes. Instead of semi-sweet chocolate chips i used White Chocolate Chips (I don't really care for "chocolate" chips) and I used macadamia nuts. I also didn't have enough All-purpose flour on hand so i used Bread Flour. I refrigerated my dough for hours prior to use, but 20 minutes would be alright. My oven tends to cook a little fast so i decreased the temperature to 350 and baked them for 8 1/2 minutes on the middle shelf. They were wonderful. I'll have to make them again since my father in law decided to give us three contains of oats he no longer wanted.

Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I loved the idea of this recipe but not the amount of eggs required so i substituted 3/4 tofu for 3 eggs (1/4 tofu = 1 egg [smoothed in the blender with the milk or you can use a soft tofu]). The result was good, but not as good as the another quiche i made that was only made with tofu and veggies. I think the egg taste stuck out a bit more than i wanted. Overall i loved the results, but could have done without as many onions i suppose and you could up another veggie in favor of others. The tomatoes made it more liquidy than i expected even after removing the seeds and coring the tomatoes. i poured the liquid out about 3/4 of the way through baking as it was seeping over the top of the quiche and had no other liquid issues after that. When i make this again i might just omit the eggs in favor of tofu, milder taste. I loved the curry and don't know what the cinnamon really did for it, but i added it anyway.

Roasted Kohlrabi

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Really good!!!! No cheese added. Actually saw Kohlrabi in a diabetic magazine and decided since i was cutting back on carbs i would give it a try. I just sliced it like a potato (in cubes) and added garlic powder and garlic salt, (was lazy and didn't want garlic smelling hands for a couple days) red pepper,flakes,black pepper and olive oil, then roasted at 425 till i thought they were ready. Was baking fish at the same time on another tray so i didn't time it. sorry. But its like a potato and according to my boyfriend it taste like broccoli and potato. I think it taste like chayote. You be the judge.

Alissa's Vegetarian Lentil Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
Loved the texture of this. i pretty much doubled the recipe since i sprouted a bag of lentils for a couple days and had to alter a few things. - i used two whole eggs, -bulgar instead of wheat germ, -ground flax seed meal, -brown rice with red kidney beans i had made a couple days before for dinner and -panko bread crumbs. As i do not have a food processor i used my blender and added two tomatoes to help mash up my lentils. i also added the bulgar to the blender too. Once i had everything mixed together i used a mini loaf pan to bake them for 30 minutes. I did not have thyme so i used italian season and more oregano. On my next attempt i might up the tomato sauce and add some chili seasoning to it and something to kick up the flavor a little more.

Cream Cheese Filled Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
the batter for this recipe is nice and simple, but the cream cheese did need something, so i found another recipe just like this one that called for 8oz of cheese and 1 cup of powdered sugar mixed well and frozen for about two hours prior to use in a log form in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. I also omitted the sunflower seeds. I suppose if you wanted, you could add some flavoring to the cheese or use a fruit flavored cream cheese.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
This was very good, almost like the one i would buy from a little Vietnamese sandwich shop called "Lee's sandwiches." I bought a folgers dark roast that wasn't quit strong enough and i added 1 Tbs of cocoa powder to the ground coffee and about an 1/8 Ts of vanilla to the pot before it started to brew and it taste pretty close to theirs, but not quite the same. However i could drink this all day and i really don't like coffee for the most part. Its the only one i will drink (the Vietnamese one). I will have to look for the more bitter coffee at my local international food market another day. On another note, i drink Thai tea every time i get Thai food and this taste nothing like Thai tea to me. Thai tea has half and half and some other brewed drink with no caffeine as far as i can tell. Overall this is very good coffee.

Raspberry Coconut Layer Bars

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
As written, the recipe is " really good!" Next time i make this i will double the coconut, walnuts and chocolates. I will also use parchment paper in baking pan so i have to the out of my pan again to get the bars out at the edges. I would also add the nuts right after i place the preserves so they settle into them and don't scatter as much. These are really good though. I'm taking them over to my mother-in-law tomorrow for mothers day.
