Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
This recipe is absolutely wonderful! I made it vegan by: using egg replacer, vegan butter, and vegan white sugar. I also made the glaze with pineapple juice instead of orange and let it reduce a bit (I still used orange in the loaf itself). This recipe makes 11 regular sized muffins. Highly recommended. If you make this into muffins bake until brown (it won't take an hour, keep an eye on it!). Grease it up good before pouring into the pan!

Key Lime Coconut Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
O.M.G. So absolutely awesome! I did modify the recipe to be vegan, subbing 1/4 cup apple sauce for each egg and unsweetened almond milk in place of regular milk. For the frosting I used vegan cream cheese. These turned out so incredibly good and I will make these again and again. I made these for my husband's birthday, amongst other desserts, and those who tried them love them (especially my father in law, the coconut-aholic). I might add more lime juice next time, but I am still highly impressed with this dessert and recommend it to all. Looks really pretty if you top with one or two slices of almond along with the lime slice if you want to be fancy. Thank you so much for this recipe!

Peanut Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Really good frosting and I would make it again with some additional modifications. I altered the recipe to be vegan, using vegan butter and unsweetened almond milk instead of cream. I only used 3 cups of sugar, I'll probably just use 2 next time. I would also reduce the amount of butter a bit, but that's not a big deal. It still made a wonderful filling for my chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting between the layers. I used organic peanut butter, the kind you need to mix up due to separation, and it was still great. Thanks for the recipe!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Wonderful cake! I made two of these in a 9 inch circular pan and reduced the baking time due to the different size and shape pan. Used mostly apple sauce in place of oil with just a small splash of olive oil (didn't have vegetable oil on hand). Tastes wonderful and holds together beautifully. Not crumbly, wonderful flavor, and moist. I followed the advise of someone here, making the complete cake a day before serving and refrigerating it overnight to let the flavors settle. Highly recommended cake, thank you for the recipe! PS: For those worried that white sugar is not vegan, there are white sugars made specifically for vegans. More expensive but animal friendly! :)

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
I made this three times, each with a different fruit. The first time I made the recipe to exact measurements with cherries. Turned out watery and froze it overnight, turned more into a sorbet and too sugary. I made it two more times, once with strawberries and once with blueberries, reducing the sugar to three cereal spoons worth of sugar and it was just right. I would think this would be a great recipe to use with kids, just keep out the sugar, use a healthy milk alternative and have it for dessert! :) I would make this again.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
I made the following substitutions: sugar free vanilla flavored almond milk instead of regular milk and 1/4 cup unsweetened unflavored applesauce for the egg. I also added some cinnamon and blueberries in the batter. The flavor was amazing! I think the only change I would make is to bake it longer since the middle wasn't quite done yet (I have to bake with a toaster oven, which can make things difficult sometimes). I might also bring down the fruit to two plums to reduce the moisture content. I also didn't use all 4 plums, only 2.5. It turned out very pretty and smelled wonderful when baking. Many people here doubled the brown sugar mix, but I wouldn't personally. My husband loved it to. Update: baking it longer at a slightly lower temperature and it worked wonderfully for the center. Baked brown but not burnt to get it baked all the way through (took about and hour). I also made this with strawberries and bananas and people loved it!

Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
This was a really nice dinner. Note that I did change the recipe a bit: doubled the lentils (red), added a Roma tomato, some diced celery, and two small spoonfuls of medium salsa. My husband and I had it with a side of steamed red potatoes, baby carrots, and broccoli as well as some green olives (I'm an addict of those things!). I cooked this until most of the water was gone. My husband thought it could use a little more "bulk" but I would make this again. :)

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
These were absolutely wonderful! I did change the recipe a bit, but even my husband (who is not into spicy food) loved them. I used black beans instead of kidney beans (I rinse them to get rid of extra salt). My husband's had cheese while mine had jalapenos. I would think adding black olives to this would taste great. I also added a little fresh mango when I pureed the yams (I couldn't buy sweet potatoes, worked out well anyway) and that was very nice. I think next time I would also bring down the amount of chili powder by just a smidge. Wonderful recipe for vegetarians and very easily made vegan.
