French Spring Soup

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Wow! My Italian husband who was disappointed that I wasn't making a minestrone just said this is one of the best soups I have ever made. I made a few slight changes: Added 2 cloves garlic, added fresh thyme, added a vegetable bouillon cube, added a few shakes of pepper, and used half and half in place of heavy cream. Outstanding recipe!

Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Made these for Christmas eve and they were great...fastest thing to go by far. I made them exactly as the recipe calls for, and served them with hot marinara sauce, which I think was a good touch.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Outstanding! I cut the recipe in half (for just me and my hubby) and used twice the amount of baking powder in place of baking soda. I added a bit of garlic powder and parsley to the batter and skipped the last step of adding the garlic butter. I also made the batter ahead of time and kept it in the fridge for a few hours. Rose no problem and were done in 13 minutes. Delicious.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Wow! I made quinoa last year and didn't really like it, but I had half the box left so decided to try this recipe. It is amazing. I added fresh basil, and lots of diced veggies (tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, bell pepper, and zucchini). It was a huge hit, and I'll be buying quinoa again and again just to make this recipe.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I made this for some guests this weekend and it was gone in a snap. I added a half can of diced tomatoes (drained), half of an orange bell pepper, fresh basil, and nutmeg. So easy to make. I will be making this one a lot.

Vegetarian Burrito Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
I thought this recipe was excellent. A simple idea with lots of flavor. As others suggested, I used both tomatoes and salsa (chunky salsa so it wouldn't be runny), and omitted the 1/4 tomato juice reserve. I also was able to make two of these with the amount of ingredients listed - both in small round casserole dishes using smaller 6-inch tortillas. Will definitely make again soon!

Zucchilattas

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I made this recipe for me and my non-vegetarian boyfriend and we both loved it. I topped it with salsa and cheese rather than more zucchini mixture. I also added some cumin to the mixture for more flavor.

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Made these with breakfast this morning. Very easy. As some others suggested, I pat the potatoes dry with paper towels before adding to the pan, and added some diced onion, Italian seasoning, and paprika. Took about 25 minutes (uncovered the whole time). Came out great!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
This was super easy and gave me a great side that I can have available in the fridge at all times. I used a tiny bit more cinammon than called for because I like my applesauce to have a lot of flavor, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for the recipe!

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Wow, awesome! I have to admit I didn't expect much, but we really liked this (even my husband who reallyjust wanted plain mashed potatoes). I halved the recipe for the two of us. I sauteed fresh spinach with the onions and some fresh garlic, added the dill to the spinach, used half the amount of cheese (some mixed in and some on top); also added some pepper. Covered while cooking the first 15 minutes then uncovered the last 5 minutes to allow the cheese to brown just a little. Will make again and again.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been complaining for a while now that I would like to make my own homemade hummus but tahini is just too expensive and I could only find large cartons of it. This worked great! Added a bit of lemon juice and a little extra garlic. Next time I will add roasted red peppers for flavored hummus (and next time will be very soon!).

Easy Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Simple and delicious, what more can you want out of a recipe? I didn't use the crackers, but will try it next time. But even without, I thought this was just a great way to have asparagus. Thanks for the recipe Beckerkorn!

Swiss Chard with Pinto Beans and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Followed this almost exactly and couldn't have been happier. I omitted the butter, subbed safflower oil for vegetable oil, and used feta instead of goat cheese. Just used proportions of beans and cheese to match the amount of chard I had. Served with eggs and fruit for a nice brunch. Thanks!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Just amazing. What a great vegetarian meal. You can also make it vegan by usin vegannaise. I think it is essential to puree the chickpeas, and I added celery and subbed yellow onion for green onions becase it is what I had on hand. Have been eating it all week and still love it!

Lentil Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Great soup! I used homemade veggie broth and skipped the veggie soup mix, used vegetable oil in place of margarine, and added a few spices: 1 Tbsp. thyme, 1 Tbsp. cumin, 1 tsp. parsley, and 1 tsp. paprika. I added a chopped zucchini at the same time as the carrots because I had one to use up. I also used crushed herbed tomatoes in place of diced. Came out very thick but I was happy with the consitency and flavor.

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Wow! I am not sure I will ever make margaritas with margarita mix again. These were perfect, and even those who didn't want a margarita started drinking them after tasting one. I subbed ginger ale for water and used Corona light for the beer. Only added ice to the glasses, not the pitcher. My only major suggestion is to buy more limeade so you can make more than one batch because these will go quick!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I am a horrible baker, but these came out absolutely amazing. It has been over a week since I made them and they are still soft and yummy. I used 1 1/2 cups brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar, chilled the dough for one hour, and baked at 325 for 10 to 12 minutes on wax paper. Wow!

Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Awesome! Used 3 tsp. baking powder in place of baking soda, and only about 1 1/4 cups sugar. Besides that followed the recipe to a T. Served warm with whipped cream, came out great!

Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
Wow, this was so simple and yet so good. My husband who is not the biggest quinoa fan I know said I could "make this as a side any time." Don't forget to rinse the quinoa first to remove the bitterness. I also had to cook the quinoa a bit longer, and took the advice of some other reviewers and added the broccoli after 10 minutes of cooking. Also just added a tiny pinch of salt because I used a vegetable bouillon cube with water as a substitute for prepared vegetable broth. Definitely will be making this one again and again!

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
My husband took one look at the name of this and was not thrilled...until he tried it and couldn't stop talking about how tasty it was. I added some minced garlic, and a little extra cumin and turmeric. Will definitely make it again. This is an easy recipe to cut in half as well.
