Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2013
Very good basic recipe but I agree too much oil. I lowered it to 3/4 cup and increased the almond milk I used in place of water to 1 1/2 cups. I also increased the cocoa to 1 cup, and added 2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cayenne powder, 2 Tablespoons of arrowroot powder and 2 tsp of baking powder for a more cake like brownie. I increased the time to 45 minutes as well. I enjoy taking a simple and good recipe and shifting things slightly to fit our tastes and what we have on hand.

Cranberry Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2004
Wonderful recipe. I did chop the cranberries, it definitely helps blend the flavors better. I doubled the recipe and used 3 eggs not 2. I also didn't have the zest so I used frozen concentrated orange juice. I also doubled the oil. It came out wonderful!! This is a great simple no stress recipe.

Peanut Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2004
This is a super easy recipe and basically no flaw. I give it a 5* for that reason alone. I did use soy sauce instead of tamari, and added 1t ginger paste, 3 finely diced green onions with tops, 1t minced garlic and 1/4 cup finely diced red bell pepper. You wouldn't have to add it but I always change recipes up. lol I poured it over bow tie pasta. Next I will try lightly sauted vegies.

Easy Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
Easy, double the cream cheese and have it at room temperature. This cuts down on the over powering sugar. I topped with blackberries. Family winner. Easy on the cook too.

Absolutely Perfect Palak Paneer

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2004
Good as a basic starter. I changed it ...a bit. I added 3 fresh bay leaves, doubled all the spiced and tripled the red peppers, 1/2 whole 1/2 crushed. I also added 2 tbs of garam masala and 2-3 Tbs of pickled ginger. I used frozen spinach and this cut down the water content. DO NOT BLEND, it will wreck the texture, simply begin with chopped frozen spinach...2 16oz bags. I used queso fresco NOT ricotta. Just cube and deep fry it till brown first. With these changes it was awesome all the kids loved it too. Well one of the six didn't try...lol Just like the restraunts... I know my Paneers. Oh, and mine took more sour cream because their was not a lot of liquid. Good balance. Served with Rice and a sweet raisan nut couscous.

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2004
Okay but not as tasty. I added quite a bit of seasoning and lifted it a bit. Still good though.

Easy Corn Chowder II

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
Loved this recipe!! I doubled, we are a family of 9. I used canned potatoes so I skipped that chore. I also sauted some celery with the onion in olive oil, skipped the water bit. Then added a bit of chicken flavored boullion powder after the milk. All tolled it was ready in around 30 min tops, from start to finish! It is so easy to change and enhance. I would try adding dill next time or mabey green chilies for a spicier version, no cayene use a splash of tabasco. You are NOT going to mess up this one. This is a great spur of the moment adder to a meal or pot luck. Kathar

Carrot Rice Nut Burger

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2003
This was good but I did it as a loaf and increased the dry ingredients. It was a bit moist and took wayyyyyy longer to cook than stated. Children and dh enjoyed so that was all that counted.

Beef, Green Chili and Tomato Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2002
This is the best Green Chilie Stew ever! I doubled the recipe, used a large roasting pan, and put it in the oven at 350 degrees. I would use a crock pot if singling it. I didn't have a beer so I left that out, but added a couple of bay leaves off my tree. It made a wonderful Shabbat meal!!

Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2002
Absolutely wonderful. Had everyone guessing at the ingredients and eating it as a snack food. I added the sliced almonds and a cup of coconut with the oats and first mixture and toasted/dried them together and it worked well. I also added 1/4 cup of honey because of the extra ingredients and to get a pinch of honey flavor. A+++++++++ in my book and a definate keeper. What a way to use old bananas too!!! Tip don't put too muck on a pan if you want a dryer or toastier taste keep it single layer.
