Pumpkin Curry with Lentils and Apples

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
Mine came out a little bit bland, but I take full responsibility for that: I may not have estimated the lentil-to-spice ratio correctly, as I was using a full bag of red lentils instead of the recommended amounts of red and brown. Also, you may not need two kinds of lentils in there, but if you are picking between them, go with the brown. Red lentils against the pumpkin and tomato make this the most orange food ever with the added randomness of spinach and green apples. People ate it, but it was the most "left-over" dish I made for this dinner.

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Left out the onion---didn't miss it. Didn't use the dressing either.

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
Really interesting concept! I skipped the spices and added ginger, carrots, and curry powder instead. Definitely go lighter rather than heavier on the apricots---a little bit goes a long way. Spinach, raisins, and/or almonds would give this a more attractive color, I think.

Sauceless Garden Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
Perfect! To solve the moisture problem cited by other reviewers, I skipped the balsamic vinegar (adding just a dash of cider vinegar instead), dry-roasted about half of the vegetables, and patted the tomatoes dry. In retrospect, I think omitting the vinegar and drying the tomatoes would have been sufficient without roasting the veggies. I also added broccoli to the mix.

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
These are a little dry, even for scones. Definitely want to be served warm and softened in tea. But they rise beautifully in the oven and have a lovely texture.

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2011
Going on the suggestions of others, I did NOT cook the potatoes in the microwave first. At 30 minutes they were only baked, not quite crispy like fries, but I think that with a little more time they would have been.

Mint Chutney

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
STRONG!!!! Actually, I probably just put way too much mint in it, and I may or may not have used a jalapeno instead of a chile, so that would be the explanation. My advice, then, is to substitute extra mint for the cilantro and a jalapeno for the chile if you want something that will blow your tastebuds to mintland (which is actually kind of nice this time of year), and not to do that if you aren't interested in the mint-coma. WOW.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
Very, very, very difficult to form into a coherent shape. However, they're a five star for taste---my little taste-tester nearly bit my hand off when I let him sample them!

Polenta and Vegetable Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
This dish single-handedly converted my mother out of the ideology that meat makes the meal. It's a completely filling, satisfying, great-tasting main dish for vegetarians and omnivores alike; a good choice for large dinners.

Hummus III

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
The salt can be halved and the oil eliminated. Vegetables can also be added to improve nutritional value, but this is really good hummus just plain, or with extra lemon juice.

Added red pepper and mushroom at asparagus stage and didn't have milk, but this still turned out very well.

Used cinnamon and cilantro, and less than called for. Also more pineapple.

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2011
These got really brown in the oven and were generally kind of unattractive, plus they used too much sugar and oil for my personal tastes---hence only four stars. But the taste was great, and everyone at GCF loved them. Great use for Farmers' Market peaches!

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
I had cinnamon ice cream ONCE, as a splurge during a diet, and no dessert has ever captivated me so. I looked for it in stores and ice cream shops for months before opening up to the idea that I could MAKE it. This recipe is perfect. It is exactly as I remember it... and I'm sure glad it's complicated to make (I don't have an automatic ice cream maker); otherwise I would need to go on another diet.

These got a tiny bit bland for me, but they cooked beautifully, which is always a big plus for pancakes.

Berry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
Great for a breakfast muffin. I think my family was expecting more of a dessert muffin, so they gave it a pretty good smack-down. But we ARE talking about a muffin with the calorie content of a granola bar (as opposed to a normal muffin, which has pretty much the same nutrition facts as cake), and for that it's pretty eatable.
