Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
Guests will never let you forget this recipe. I was skeptical, but this was a hit. I sliced the cream cheese lengthwise and layed the rectangles side by side and the tapenade covered it well. I added a dash of hot sauce too. An 8x8 appetizer perfect for a tapas party. Note: Next time I would use ground rosemary- the other reviewers are right, the sprigs mess with the texture.

Italian Sausage Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This was delicious. Loved the kick from the italian sausage. This is the best chili I have made so far and it was exceedingly simple. I had about a 1/3 jar of veggie spaghetti sauce and used that in place of the tomato paste and it turned out just great! Thanks.

Brunch Egg Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This is supreme- even reheated two days later :) This is like a light and fluffy crustless quiche. I halved the recipe for me and my man, and made the following changes though this recipes would be great as written for sure: Greased an 8x8 casserole dish with butter. I used a combination of feta, italian, and cheddar cheese- wow! I nixed the mushrooms bc I think they are nasty, and upped the peppers, of which I used a a tric-color variety. I added three minced cloves of garlic and used yellow onion in the sautedd veggies. Used 5 eggs (remember I haved the recipe though) and dried parsley. I thought this would be bland, but it was great. I really think sauteeing the veggies brings the great flavor to the dish and the inclusion of feta upped the ante. It took about 40 min to cook and was perfectly browned. I would definitely use this dish for company. Yum.

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I think this is a fine starter recipe. The resulting sauce wasn't as think and tomatoey as I imagined, but I thought the proportions were right on. I used lean turkey sausages, sliced; brown rice; and added a carrot. To ease clean up and to better monitor the rice, I cooked it solely on the stovetop. I think this recipe turned out well, it just isn't a dish I'd make for company and I am not looking forward to the leftovers.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
Perfect! I made no changes at all. I used two organic gala and two organic pink lady apples. So yummy warm off the stove, it is tempting not to devour it.

Spicy Vegan Potato Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
This smells delicious: it is simmering right now. I had to alter the ingredients based on those available at the moment, but I think following the recipe to the letter would give it 5 stars- we'll see how my version turns out. My changes: I didn't have garam masala or ginger: I subbed 2t ground coriander, 2t pumpkin pie spice, 1t paprika, and 1t lemon juice. No tomtatoes either: I subbed equal amount of salsa, though I don't suggest this bc it takes away from the other flavors. Due to preference, I added 1 cup sliced carrots to the potatoes for the last 5 min (which btw only took 10 min). I added the beans drained, but unrinsed, immed after spices bc the spice/onion combo was quite dry. I also added 1 cup trimmed snap peas with the coconut milk (I used lite). Time to eat!

Cinnamon-Sugar Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I think I needed a bigger bowl to mix it all into. The mixture chucked onto some pieces and didn't coat the rest of the popcorn like other recipes I've tried. The flavor is wonderful though. I think I will try again, halfing the recipe, but using 1/4 cup of butter in hopes that it will distribute the coating better.

Sweet and Spicy Popcorn

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I tried four different flavored popcorn recipes off this site in the last two days and this one turned out the best. I mixed the sugar and spices with 3T butter in a saucepan, then poured and mixed into homemade popcorn. Then I spread the mixture onto a cookie sheet and baked at 200 degrees for 10 minutes. The popcorn had a wonderfully crispy coat. It was less spicy than expected, but delicious. To make it extra naughty for gifts, I am drizzling the finished product with white chocolate. Yum.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
The flavor was fantastic, though I did add a small amount of nutmeg and cinnamon due to personal preference. My only qualm is that the directions say to remove the sauce pan after the cranderries start to pop. I did this, but I think I should have left it on longer. This never properly thickened and I believe it is because not enough cranberries popped, so there wasn't enough pectin released. I will try again.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Best ever! I used italian sausage that I squeezed out of the casing and added 1/2 cup of carrots with the apple. I also doubled the stock because I baked this in a greased and covered casserole dish. The colors, texture, and flavors were amazing. My boyfried is not a fan of stuffing or cranberries, but he was changed by this recipe.

Carrot-Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I had half a head of cauliflower to use and found this recipe. I altered it because I didn't want to use mayo and had some other ingredients on hand. I used 1/3cu vinegar, less than 1/4 cu olive oil, an unmeasured amount of water and plain yogurt to make a thick creamy dressing with the italian mix. I tossed this with raw cauliflower, because this head tasted great, shredded carots, and some frozen peas. Refreshing way to keep extra veggies from rotting in the fridge!

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
I added freshly roasted garlic and dried basil and subbed onion salt for onion powder and salt. My only issue was that the flavor of the cream cheese was very prevalent. I baked a small amount in the oven for today, but will do the rest in the crockpot for thanksgiving. Maybe the time heating will blend the flavos more. Next time I might try using a mix of goat cheese and italian cheeses.

Potato Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I got a bunch of arugula at the farmers' market and was excited for this recipe. I think my "bunch" was way too big for this recipe. I used less than half and it still dominated my potatoes. I will use less next time and be more careful to tear into tinier pieces. I also cooked the potatoes for 15 min and they were way overdone- my bad. The result was flavorful and edible, but nothing I would prepare for company. I will use the rest of my arugula and try again though.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I have always used the box of falafel mix and will no longer. This was simple and delicious. I followed the recipe, with the exception of choosing not to blend the veggies and to just chop. I was tempted to fry them up without the bread crumbs or egg because the consistency was so good, but I was too weary. I used my own tzatziki recipe and the result was great. Even my meat and potatoes boyfriend approved. Thanks.

No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
This type of recipe goes back to atleast my grandpa's mom. An all-time family favorite. We don't use coconut, but sometimes add peanut butter (this helps thicken them up too) or my favorite, raisins. So naughty and yummy!
