Raisin and Spice Brown Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
We enjoyed this brown rice recipe as our main dish. I would say it serves 4 if it is the main entree. I omitted the butter in cooking the rice as we are trying to eat healthy and plant based. I added more celery as other reviewers recommended. It was a tasty dish along with our favorite kale salad. Hint for fresh ginger. Mine usually goes bad before I get around to using it until I decided to freeze it. Peel the fresh ginger, and cut into chunks about 1-1/2 to 2 inches long and freeze in a plastic bag. When you need it, take it out frozen and use your microplaner to shred it....so easy. Make a larger pile than you might think, as it melts down as it thaws. This way I always have ginger on hand and ready to use.

Guilt-Free Apple Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2012
A good plant-based diet recipe, but I felt it needed more sweetening. We enjoyed it with some low fat ice cream, but my husband wanted more sweetening so he dribbled some Agave on his cobbler the second time around. Trying to make low sugar and low fat dessert recipes is a challenge! When I try this again I will probably add a Tablespoon or two of Agave or brown sugar to the apples and cranberries, and perhaps a little more brown sugar to the topping so it is not quite as guilt-free. This is especially needed if you skip ice cream on top...as we usually do. The topping was in clumps, but that was okay, more like a crisp than a cobbler. Thanks for the recipe!

Soba with Toasted Sesame Seed Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Very good versatile recipe. I doubled the sauce ingredients, using seasoned rice vinegar, 1/2 brown sugar, and about 3 Tablespoons sesame seeds. Whole wheat linguine was the pasta I had available and that worked very well. I stir fried half a small onion, and for veggies I used a frozen stir-fry mix, which I cooked lightly, since I was out of broccoli. I might try marinating some tofu in the dressing first. next time I try it. Thanks for a tasty recipe, Jessica!

Quinoa with Sweet Potato and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
Sorry, this just didn't hit the spot with us. I went back after dinner to look at the recipe again to see if I forgot something. Nope...I only used a sprinkle of cayenne and my husband said that was more than enough. I added cinnamon as another reviewer suggested, and that helped a bit. It sounded so promising for our plant based diet, but the flavor just wasn't there. Are crimini mushrooms different than the common white mushrooms that I used? Wish I could think of some interesting herb or spice to perk it up, aside from pepper, as I doubled the recipe and have lots of leftovers.

Currant Scone Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
These were easy to make and whole family enjoyed them for Easter breakfast. I formed the dough into a square about 9" and cut into square "biscuits", brushed the top with egg white, then sprinkled sugar. They were easy to handle and tasted good with the currants in them. I added a dollop of sour cream to the dough, and I don't know what that did for it, but they were tender and tasty, and no leftovers. I did use 1/2 whole wheat flour, it may have been whole wheat pastry flour and I baked the "biscuits" for a shorter time than suggested. This is a keeper! I used half the recipe and it made enough for 6 people.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
Good basic recipe, but mine was lacking in flavor. When I warm it up again I'm going to try adding some oregano, thyme, paprika, pepper and maybe some tomato paste. It has possibilities.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
Lamb chops were on sale this week and though I haven't cared much for lamb in the past I decided to give them another try. Since I am very fond of balsamic vinegar I decided to try this recipe. These were so excellent I could eat them once a week with no problem. Very tasty!

Cocktail Wieners I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Nice simple recipe. I was looking for one that didn't call for currant or grape jelly, which I don't keep on hand. Cranberry sauce I keep on hand, so this filled the bill perfectly. We even like the cold sauce as a dipper with other things like crackers or fresh veggies.

Herbed Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I served this on Christmas eve, and it was well received! The lemon flavor added a nice twist. The roast was moist and well seasoned. Thanks for a successful meal! Sure beats cooking the whole turkey.

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Seasonings were great! Everyone loved the roast. I followed suggestion of earlier reviews that suggested starting with a 425 oven. I didn't want the smoke alarms going off. My meat thermometer wasn't working properly, and I cooked it longer than suggested, but meat was still pink, juicy and delectable. Thanks!

Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
I'd never made, nor tasted biscotti before, but had hazelnuts on hand, which is rare for me. These looked and tasted good with a chocolate drizzle on top and went over well with my Christmas guests. I expected them to be very crisp like melba toast, but they were not, thankfully. They didn't need to be dunked to be good. We liked the texture and the taste. The only improvement might be to use hazelnut extract to enhance the flavor of the nuts. I'll definitely make these again.

Home On The Range Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2003
What a nice way to extend a can of tuna! The cottage cheese does make it creamy and with the eggs it is a nice high protein lunch we served with sliced tomatoes. I omitted lemon pepper which we don't care for, forgot celery salt, and used red onion, and it was tasty. I used Miracle Whip for a little extra zip!

Asian Chicken Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2003
This is my kind of recipe! Crunchy and interesting! I loved the combination of seeds, bok choy, chicken, noodles and pea pods. I did find it difficult to shred or grate the bok choy, so I just cut it very thin with a sharp knife. I also cut down on the oil and sugar a bit, but think I will try it full strength next time. Served with rice it made a nice meal. I used leftover rotisserie chicken. So good!
