Broccoli, Leek, and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This soup is great! I also question the reviewer that said the recipe states 2 tablespoons of pepper. The recipe I used only listed one tablespoon of pepper. I actually added and extra 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, added no salt, and used turkey bacon. Perfect. I pureed about 3/4 of the soup. When I was in the grocery store purchasing the leeks a woman told me to soak the leeks because they contain "sand". I thought she was nuts but I did soak the leeks for about 10 minutes and sure enough, there was sand at the bottom of the bowl! Not sure if this is true for all leeks but you may want to chop the leeks and then soak before using. Thanks for the recipe.

Cucumber Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
This is recipe is really good. Highly recommend letting it sit for a few hours before drinking so you get the flavor of the cucumber.

Kale, Swiss Chard, Chicken, and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Great recipe but way too much vinegar. I will cut in half next time. I had to add sugar to each bowl of my salad in order to get this down - way too much vinegar for me but I liked the recipe otherwise. My husband, on the other hand, loved this recipe and ended up eating majority of it!

Gluten Free Ginger-Honey Crunch

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Fantastic and super easy! I made this pretty much as is but with unsweetened cranberries, less almonds and a little more coconut. I added the cranberries with everything else and it worked out fine. I used 1 teaspoon of ginger and 1/2 teaspoons of cardamom. Very tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

Cheesy Chicken Poblano Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
This is fantastic soup. Every pepper will vary on how hot it is (even coming from the same plant...I used the poblano's from my garden and they were very different) so you will need to taste them before adding. I added 3, but next time will add more, depending on how how hot they are. An easier way to get the skin off the peppers is to blacken them by putting them directly in a flame on a gas oven or a grill, then follow the directions by putting them in a plastic bag. Much easier and less chance of burning them (which I have done). Just use a long BBQ type of utensil so you don't burn yourself. I otherwise made exactly as is except left out the chicken...no need for it in my opinion with the beans and cheese. Next time, I will add an extra can of beans and maybe another pepper or two. Thanks so much for the recipe!!!! Fantastic!

White Bean Dip with Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
This recipe is very good. I think it would benefit from more garlic, as the previous reviewer mentioned. I used dry oregano instead of fresh and a regular tomato and it turned out fine. Great on pita bread but would also make a good spread on a sandwich.

My husband and I love these pizzas! They are very easy to make and the best part, very easy to adapt with different ingredients. This is one our favorite quick dinners. Thanks for the recipe.

Man Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Super easy. I found this rather bland though even with the spicy canned chili. Will spice it up next time I make it.

Tex-Mex Squash Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
Great recipe for using up garden zucchini! I made a few adjustments - added 2 jalapeno peppers, used less olive oil and a lot more cumin. Otherwise followed recipe. Will make again but next time, I probably won't put it in the oven since I think it is great just as a stir fry. Great with diced tomatoes and lots of fresh cilantro on top.

Kelly's Super Simple Shower Punch

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This is so easy to make and so yummy! This is a great punch for kids but at the party I brought this to, it ended up being drank by the adults as well...with a shot of vodka added. It was very tasty and a big hit. Highly recommend! Thanks for the simple recipe.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Great base recipe but I added a lot to this. Cumin, apple cider (the alcohol kind), honey (I found it very bitter), an extra can of tomatoes (I also used fresh). I used black beans instead of turkey. Really good with changes. Will make again.

Ceil's Cucumber Slices

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
My mom makes something very similar to this. The only thing I altered, is adding just a couple tablespoons of canola oil, that is the way my mom makes it. Great recipe to use up cucumbers and peppers from the garden. Thanks!

Carrot Soup with Potatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Good recipe and really easy to make. I had to add a lot of white pepper to get it to a flavor we were happy with (about 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon). I also added some paprika for richer color and more thyme, about 1/4 of a teaspoon. You may want to take the bay leaf out before blending (I forgot). Good flavor even without the cream. Thanks for sharing!

Hawaiian Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Good recipe. I do not frequently make dessert and forgot to purchase the eggs for the cake mix. They are not listed on the recipe list so make sure you add them (as well as whatever else is called for in the cake mix). I think the dessert would be great frozen. It states to chill a minimum of 2 hours, I would chill overnight minimum! We ate this after 2 hours and we all thought it was much better the next day. Overall, would suggest this recipe...makes a lot for the price!

Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Fantastic recipe! I have used walnuts in place of the pecans and they taste just as good. I use a little more spinach than what is called for because this makes a lot of dressing. Great taste! Thanks for the recipe!
