Vegan Black and White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Thanks for this recipe! I made a few modifications. I substituted carrots for the celery, and added fresh spinach at the end for some extra nutrition and flavor. I also added smoky tempeh for enhanced protein, while still keeping it meatless. It was simple, delicious and fast to make. I'll definitely make this again!

Richer Than Rich German Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
This is a great recipe! Loved the suggestion to toast both coconut and pecans together. I substituted coconut extract for the vanilla, added some caramel sundae syrup and about 1 Tbsp Godiva liqueur (keeps it from becoming a brick when frozen) toward the end of freezing. Excellent! I tried making it with low fat half and half and 1% milk - good, but much less creamy. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!

Apple Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Loved the modifications suggested by CERRAIN18th - the rub really helped keep them juicy. I suggest you start with chops that come from locally raised grass fed pigs. It makes all the difference in flavor, and supports the local farms!

Italian Peasant Bread Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
This is a great, easy recipe - thanks. I only modified it a bit. I used oregano infused oil to cook the onion, some chopped shallot and minced garlic with spices first - oregano, thyme, rosemary. Then I added the carrots, celery and parsnip. If you prefer, you could use chopped celery root instead of celery. I used organic fire roasted diced toms, 3 c of veggie juice and 1 c of water. I also added some ground flax for extra nutrients and thickness. While the soup was simmering, I coated boneless chicken breasts with the oregano oil and roasted them. At the end, I shredded the chicken and added it. The fresh basil is a great addition. I didn't have the flat leaf parsley so I left it out. I used whole grain bread for the croutons, and sprinkled on a 3 cheese blend before serving. A nice thick, hearty soup for those chilly days. Will definitely make this again!
