Chickpeas in Tomato Sauce With Feta and Wine

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
Decided to give this recipe a try as I was looking for something to go with risotto and roasted asparigus for a vegetarian dinner party. As some other reviewers suggested, I used tomato sauce instead of the diced tomatoes; and red wine instead of white and it turned out quite well. Because some reviewers did not care for the feta cheese, I split the finished product into two separate serving dishes - added feta cheese to one and parmesan reggiano to the other. Between the two, the feta version was by far my and my guests preference.

A Great Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
As other reviewers suggested, I cut the recipe in half and made several modifications. Since I'm vegetarian, I used tofu pepperoni, left out the mushrooms (personal preference), and added cherry tomatoes, cauliflower and artichoke hearts. Lastly, to try and reduce the fat I only used a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and some light Italian dressing. Served for a large dinner party (15) and the entire thing was almost completely finished. I personally found it "okay". I really liked the addition of the artichokes and cauliflower, but was less keen on the cherry tomatoes. I also found that the cheeses got kind of soft - but, not in a good way. It was as though the marinate melted them a bit even though the dish was left in the fridge to marinate for 3 days. Next time I might try and make a vegan version and leave out all the cheese.

Healthier Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
As other reviewers suggested, I altered the recipe a bit. Used 1/2 all purpose and 1/2 whole wheat flour, splenda brown sugar (quantity cut in half as per the slenda directions) istead of regular brown sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla and 1tsp of cinnamon. Also added 1/4 cup of raisins and 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I baked it as one large loaf so it ended up taking about 80 minutes in the end. The end prodect was absolutely delicious!

Truly Delicious Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Yummy brussel sprout recipe! I used just a little oil, no butter, and added a tsp of ground mustard seed. I too sauteed longer than suggested, until the spouts turned a nice bright green.

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2010
OMG! This soup was delicious. Who knew that tomato, red pepper, and peanut butter was such a wonderful combination?! I made it almost exactly as indicated except I made only half a recipe as I only had one red pepper on hand, I doubled the chilli powder as other reviewers had suggested, and I put the rice in with the crushed tomatoes and broth as it takes 30-40 minutes to cook brown rice.
