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.

Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Very enjoyable. Placed over crispy lettuce for a nice salad. Added extra parsley and salt.

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.

Zucchini with Chickpea and Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
We thought it was lacking in flavor. It needs some sort of sauce, cheese on top, etc. Very healthy, though.

French Onion Soup VII

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
Tastes strongly of wine-- use significantly less if you don't want this as the main flavor. Be sure to cook your onions well, so that they are completely soft, before adding to the broth. I left out the salt and pepper, since our veggie broth contained salt. My husband and I both enjoyed this soup a lot.

Ratatouille Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
The combination of eggplant, tomato (whether you use fresh or canned as this recipe calls for--I used fresh), and zucchini is wonderful. (Onion optional.) However, the pasta needs to be completely covered in this sauce; otherwise it is somewhat dry and boring. I'd suggest setting aside some tomatos or sauce and cooking it separately, using it to coat ALL of the pasta before pouring the rest of the vegetables on top.

Blueberry Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Used exact recipe but a little less salt, per someone's review, and we used frozen blueberries. With frozen berries, carefully mix in as the last ingredient just before putting batter into muffin pan. We used a "Texas-sized" muffin pan, and they came out well but only enough batter for 5 muffins. We enjoyed them with our afternoon tea. Would also be a great snack with a nice coffee or espresso. They were best when just out of the oven and still a little warm.

Peanut Vegetable Curry Wraps

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
I used organic peanut butter instead of Jif, zucchini instead of cauliflower, and left out the scallions. The sour cream was a dipping sauce. It was good but needed a little more flavor. Adding the scallions, extra peanut butter, salt, or crushed peanuts might work. Next time, I would add mushrooms or bell pepper and NO onions. Fresh broccoli is a MUST for this recipe. Pita bread would work well, in lieu of tortillas.

Spicy Couscous with Dates

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Substituted some red curry paste for chilies and added a zucchini and a can of kidney beans. Left out the lemon juice and pepper (personal preferences.) It was wonderful! Tip: Cut the dates lengthwise to remove pits easily before chopping. Don't forget to remove the star anise pods before eating. More vegetable broth may be needed to get the couscous consistency you desire.
