Sweet and Spicy Soup with Black-Eyed Peas and Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
This was delicious! The flavor of the broth is similar to a barbecue rub. I thought it needed something green in it, so I added kale.

Cannellini Beans and Greens on Garlic Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2005
I made this recipe exactly as is and everyone I've prepared it for has asked for the recipe. Absolutely fabulous and very healthy. Also good with roasted garlic instead of raw garlic.

Polenta with Sausage and Greens

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2004
This was great. The polenta came out just the right consistency -- not hard, but not runny -- just like they serve in restaurants. The perfect liquid to cornmeal ratio! Just make sure to stir frequently so it doesn't get clumpy. I made a few changes so that this would be VEGETARIAN: I used vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth, and I used vegetarian sausage links (4 = 1/2 lb.). The flavor was great. I also used swiss chard instead of mustard greens because they were all I had on hand -- I think any leafy green can be substituted easily. The topping reminded me of something that would go well mixed with pasta, maybe with some lemon juice as well. I will definitely make this recipe again!

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.

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.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2006
So good and so easy! I lined my baking dish with parchment paper to prevent sticking. I substituted more flour for the wheat germ, plus some sesame seeds and sunflower seeds to make them more granola-like.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2005
Maybe I lucked out, but I found ground cardamom at a nearby spice store for $1.60 an ounce, so this mix was very affordable to make. I added the nutmeg and pepper (I actually used black instead of white, since the only difference is the color), but not the allspice. The flavor is great but the smell is the best part!

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.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
These were absolutely amazing! And I'm not even a big fan of non-chocolate desserts. I baked the first batch for 8 minutes, and they were very soft and just barely done on the inside (just the way I like them). I baked my last batch for 11 minutes to get a really crispy outside, but the inside stayed chewy and moist. YUM!

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.
