Cucumber Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
I fought my usual instincts to "doctor up" the dressing and I'm so glad I didn't change a thing. The dressing is simple, allowing the fruit flavors to shine through. This was a big hit at the potluck, made exactly to the recipe. It will be my seasonal "go to" recipe.

Cookie Dough Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
This was one surprising recipe! I would recommend adding a couple tablespoons of chopped raisins to the hummus after it's gone through the food processer. Next time I'm going to stir in some chopped walnuts as well. I used less pb and no oil in order to save a few calories. I used plain old fashion rolled oats instead of instant. The most important instruction would be to make ahead of time and chill well. At room temperature it's still a little "beany", but refrigeration takes care of that and allows the flavors to meld. We loved this as a dip for apple slices.

Lucie's Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
This was better than I expected! I left out the bell pepper, mushrooms and red wine because I didn't have them on hand. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly, including the lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce which I was skeptical about. In the end, I'd say to be sure to include these two items and they added a flavor element that "brightened" the rest of the dish. We loved it! I know it will freeze well, so this one will be a staple in our packed lunches.

Creamy Roasted Parsnip Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
This just tastes like a great big ol' bowl of autumn. So, so, so good. I did make one change to the recipe in that I used ham base rather than chicken base, but other than that I followed to a T. I'm not a big fan of allspice, but once the soup had a chance for all the flavors to meld, it was perfect. I served with little pieces of toasted french bread with parmesan cheese broiled on the toast. Take a chance on a new recipe, I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I used frozen peppers, minced garlic from a jar and dried onions (all my favorite time savers) and simply skipped the sauteing step. I prefer to simply mash the beans with a fork, as I like that texture better than pureed. I will use less cumin next time and add some of Trader Joes' roasted corn. I love, love, love this recipe. As a new vegetarian, it is comfort food with out the other issues.
