Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I did alter the recipe: Used 250 g. egg noodles and basically cut the ingredients into 1/3 what this recipe states (but the full amount of chile sauce.) Since I used a sweet chile sauce, I did NOT include any sugar. I let the green onions cook in the sauce a few minutes, to soften them. It was not spicy enough for me so sprinkled red pepper flakes on top. It was good, but next time, I will not cut the ingredients down so much; I think 1/2 would be better.

Aloo Phujia

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
These were really quite good. I cooked the onions in butter, to add some flavor, and increased the spices, including salt, just a little. Also sprinkled red pepper flakes on top and pre-boiled the potatoes. I would suggest using a non-stick pan.

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2011
This is good soup! The key is to use your favorite broth. We love vegetable bouillon so used 2 Liters water and enough bouillon to make it noticeably salty, plus a can of chopped tomatoes, since we love that in soup. Frozen spinach works fine. Just add it before boiling the water. When the water is boiling, then add the couscous (or little pasta Soup Stars or Orzo), and the spinach will be cooked by the time the pasta is cooked (5-8 minutes.) I also used less cumin but more garlic.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
It was bland. I would actually like to give it 3 stars. However, I did not add the optional chile paste, which I think would have helped. I'll try it again with chile paste, and I think it would be better with some lime squeezed on it before serving.

Cranberry Nut Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
It's not tangy or tart at all; I would have liked it to taste a little tart, so next time, I'll add lemon juice or something. I made it as directed but instead of an orange, mixed an entire clementine in a food processor (minus the peel) and used that in the batter.

Zucchini and Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Good breakfast. I suggest using a non-stick pan and eating this with some salsa.

Green Beans Italiano

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
It was nice how the tomatoes coated the beans. They do taste very "Italiany!" Used: 1 package fresh beans, 2 large tomatoes, 1/2 red onion, 1 clove garlic (more would probably be even better), a few leaves fresh basil, few sprinkles of dry oregano, olive oil, salt.

Roasted Kohlrabi

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
Tastes great! If you love garlic, try using extra cloves. If you cut the kohlrabi into squares, it will require a longer baking time. (I baked at 200 C, 40 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes, in a small glass casserole dish.)

Quick Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
Used 1/4 C brown sugar, 1/4 C white and left out the baking soda. Used about 3/4 Tablespoon batter for each cookie and flattened onto pan. They weren't finished at 8 minutes so baked a little longer. Allowed to cool 10 minutes in pan before transferring them off to finish cooling. Used an organic natural peanut butter. It's a nice gluten-free cookie, but I would recommend adding something, like chocolate chips or using crunchy peanut butter.

Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Used olive oil. I didn't have cayenne so used 1 teaspoon chili powder and 1 teaspoon cinammon. Also used 2 teaspoons brown sugar (not tablespoons). They are delicious! Took about 35-40 minutes to cook. I cut the pieces fairly small.

Sweet and Spicy Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
I loved this recipe! I'd add even more ginger next time, but it tasted great over rice. Made it exactly as written, except no pepper. The ginger and maple syrup make it nice-and-tasty!

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2011
Pretty good but a little too salty. Next time, I would use very little salt. I also used less than 1/2 cup butter. They are a little mushy, but I don't mind that personally.

Cream of Onion and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Simple and delicious! Tastes very creamy. For 4 servings: used 4 medium potatoes, 1 and 1/2 onions, and blended with 1 C. water. Added 1 and 1/2 cups lowfat (but not skim) milk, sprinkle of pepper, and a few pinches of sea salt. This will make a very thick soup. I recommend blending the parsley in the blender with the potatoes and onions. Leave 1/4 to 1/2 of the potatoes unblended, if you want chunks.

Lena's Pasta Fazul

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I agree with using only 1/2 pound of pasta for best results. Tastes good but very "healthy." I used 2 large carrots, 4 large tomatoes (unpeeled), 1 red onion, garlic, herbs and spices, and it came out very "carroty." Blending all of the veggies in a food processor worked well.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
I only had one loaf pan so halved the recipe exactly, except for the sugar, which I then halved again. (I knew it would be too sweet for me, otherwise.) I also did not include nuts and used 2/3 whole wheat flour, 1/3 all purpose to make it healthier. It tastes decent and is a little moist but NOT super-moist. It didn't rise as much as it should have so is a small loaf. It cooked in 40 minutes.

Grilled Vegetables in Balsamic Tomato Sauce with Couscous

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Bland. I suggest adding a lot of garlic or chopped olives, or something for flavor. Four stars because it's vegetarian and healthy!

Power Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
I added 1 cup rice milk and 1 egg, mixed it all well with my hands, spread it out in a large glass baking pan, baked for 25 minutes, and am now enjoying a piece. I love that these are high fiber, and they taste good, but it's true that it needs liquid/binder. Once you add liquid, you can make it as cookies or spread it out and cut it into "bars."

Angel's Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Although I added extra garlic, an extra tomato, and sprinkled parmesan cheese and salt on top, it still needs more flavor. I'll keep this recipe but next time, add even more garlic, tomatoes, and other vegetables.

Mojito Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I did my own version: no simple syrup (too much sugar) and a regular salad dressing spice-packet with some olive oil, water, and lime juice. But the combination of dressing, lettuce, sour apples, cucumber, and fresh mint leaves was simple and very refreshing! If you're a fan of sour apples and mint, you'll enjoy this salad.
