Awesome Apple Martinis

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2004
I made a big bowl of this for a party. It was both strong and sweet, even after adding a little extra juice. A great combination :) Everyone asked for the recipe.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2004
Incredibly easy for such a nice meal. I first blended the parsley, garlic, and onion in the food processor, then I added the garbanzo beans right in and processed until they were the right consistency. Certainly saved a lot of mashing. I made about 20 small patties and baked them as other reviewers have suggested. The kitchen smelled amazing! Left out the cucumber sauce and instead served with tomato, cucumber, lettuce, and hummus in warm pitas for an easy -- if not messy -- high protein vegetarian meal.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2004
This was the first frosting I've ever made (normally I'm quite happy with canned varieties), but this was so easy; I just threw everything in the food processor. The recipe made enough to frost a layered red velvet cake AND a batch of brownies, which tasted exactly like the kind I used to get from my favorite bagel bakery.

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2004
I made this for a potluck and even non-vegetable eaters liked it. The almonds didn't really seem to fit with the rest of the dish, though. I may try this with asparagus.

Spaghetti With Peanut Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2004
A few additions added a LOT of flavor to this recipe: 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 - 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger, 1 tsp+ each of cayenne pepper and chili powder to replace the chili sauce, and chunky peanut butter for crunch. I also used fat-free half-and-half to replace the cream (milk works well, too) because there's enough fat in the peanut butter. The half-and-half keeps it creamy. I let the sauce sit for about an hour and it was great served with a stirfry of broccoli, carrots, and red pepper over noodles.

Asian Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2003
Pretty good, with a few changes to add flavor. I added 2 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp of sugar, and about 1/4 cup of rice vinegar. I also doubled the amount of cayenne pepper in total, substituted scallions for cilantro. Next time I may add some ginger, too. Goes great accompanied with a hot stir fry.

Green Chutney

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2003
Tasty and colorful. I served it with chickpea curry (the recipe is also on allrecipes.com). I had a small problem with getting the chutney out of my blender, but other than it was no fuss.

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2003
A GREAT cookie. I used 1 cup honey roasted peanut butter (it was all I had), substituted butter for crisco, and added a bag of Nestle peanut butter & chocolate chips. My friends ate the dough before I could bake them all!

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2003
My family loved it! I halved the oil and sprinkled on a tsp or two of ground cinnamon. We ate it in warm pitas and substituted green chutney (recipe on this site) for the cilantro.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2003
My mom always made baked eggplant when I was growing up, so now I find fried versions far too oily. This recipe is exactly how she used to make it! Sometimes she'd just bake the eggplant, freeze it plain, and we would add marinara sauce and cheese and microwave for a quick meal. Egg whites or egg beaters can also replace the whole eggs.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2003
This is great soup every time, and everytime I change something! The first time I added chili powder and a chipotle pepper for spice and topped with taco cheese and more black beans, omitting the sour cream. I've also blended in a roasted red pepper which gave a sweeter, smoky flavor. Other good ingredients to add-in after blending are 1/2 c brown rice, 1/2 c whole-wheat macaroni or other small pasta, or an avocado to add texture.
