Pumpkin Pie Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I tried this, substituting oil with applesauce (calls for a lot of oil!). Next time I'll cut down on the sugar. The applesauce was unsweetened, but I think it still made the bread overall a little too sweet. Good and moist, though.

Jan's Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
SO moist. Made this for my co-worker's birthday and it's probably the best cake I've ever made (I love it and I'm not much of a cake person). UPDATE: I made this lactose-free with Smart Balance Light margarine and buttermilk made from 1 tbs vinegar and 1 c Lactaid milk. Still delicious. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and it's great.

Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I can't eat dairy, so this recipe is great. But since I do eat meat, I like to add fresh, diced chicken to mine and I use beef and/or chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. This takes me a really long time to make (since there's a lot of chopping and homemade crust involved), but I make individual pot pies that I (and everyone else) love! One more thing: I double the corn starch/soy concoction, which makes the pie a lot less runny.

Cream of Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I'm lactose intolerant and can't really eat any dairy, but I did use some butter and lactose-free milk to replace the half n' half (I'm a little worried about eating the butter!)...but I think this would even be tasty without the milk (I've had asparagus soups without dairy before that were very good, so I'm going to continue experimenting). I also cut the asparagus into smaller pieces and pureed the soup because I was in the mood for it that way, but I did try it before blending and it was good that way too (I liked it better pureed though...also visually appealing with the uniform green color). Also, in addition to cutting off the brownish ends of the asparagus, I used a veggie peeler on the lower half (to take off the first layer and prevent stringiness). Overall, I really like that this is a simple recipe! Not too many fancy ingredients, and tasty!
