Strawberries and Cream Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2003
This was better than your average strawberry shortcake. The cake part was very moist and dense. Although the cream cheese frosting on the sides was yummy, it was a little hard to ice with the whipped cream oozing out from between the layers. If you are short on time or want to cut the richness of the cake, you can easily skip on the frosting. I also should have listened to my instincts and used nonstick cooking spray instead of greasing and flouring the pans per the recipe. The cake layers stuck and I had to piece them back together. For anyone who hasn't tried it, I've never had a cake stick when using Pam or Mazola.

Chickpeas in Tomato Sauce With Feta and Wine

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2003
I don't like oregano, so I used basil instead and this came out very good. It's a very simple, quick, and tasty dish. I served it with rice pilaf, which complimented the beans well.

Rice Cereal Energy Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2003
I had a little trouble with this recipe at first. The peanut butter mixture didn't seem to be enough to glue the cereal together, so I had to make extra. Also, I found heating the peanut butter and syrup in the microwave messy and more trouble than it's worth. Next time, I will cook the mixture in a big pot on the stove, then gradually add the cereal, which I think will help it mix more evenly. The end result, though, is fantastic, and much better than those expensive energy bars that you buy in the store. They are great for breakfast and a mid-afternoon snack. This one is a keeper!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
This is a very good recipe and tasted fresher than what I've had in many Greek restaurants. I used a little more cayenne, as I like spice. The hardest part is getting the oil temperature right...to low and it soaks up too much oil, too hot and they don't cook all the way through. Definitely one I will make again.

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2003
This is a great, simple meat sauce recipe. I add fresh mushrooms and use 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 Italian sausage. Since I was never a big fan of sauces heavy on oregano, this one is just perfect. Although it's ready to eat in 40 minutes, it tastes even better after 2 hours.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2002
Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It is very good, and most of all, very healthy. Not being a vegetable fan, I'm always searching for tasty ways of preparing vegetables and this is one I use a lot. The only changes I made were using olive oil instead of vegetable, and sometimes I use garlic and herb flavored feta cheese.
