Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
This is a great base recipe... I added garlic powder, onion power, basil, and oregano to the olive oil. I also used the same amount of olive oil and spices to brush over the edge of the crust before baking. I cooked it on a pizza stone with a liberal amount of cornmeal and it turned out nice and chewy with a little bit of crunch! Very quick and easy.

Mayan Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
These flavors compliment each other very well! I was a little short on time so I didn't roast the garlic, just minced it raw. I also used several jarred jalapenos since I didn't have a fresh one on hand. With these small changes it still turned out great.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I made this exactly as written and it was delicious! I used a potato masher to mash the chickpeas... It took a little elbow grease, but was worth the effort. I think the food processor would have made it too much like a hummus texture. I think next time I will microwave the beans a little to soften them up before mashing.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
This is an excellent recipe! I've tried quinoa before and wasn't too impressed, the first recipe I tried was pretty plain, just had a little ginger and green onions. So, I was a little skeptical on trying quinoa again, but I still had half the package left from my first attempt and decided to give it another go. I figured you can't go wrong with a black bean/corn combo. These flavors go together wonderfully.

Vegetarian Kale Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I loved this soup! I used klamath potatoes (unpeeled) since that was what I had on hand. After I started making this, I realized that I only had 3 bouillon cubes, so I upped the garlic and spices a bit and added some dried celery flakes. I also used the fire roasted tomatoes as someone had suggested. I seriously ate half of the pot in one day, it was so good!

Sweet and Tangy Sauteed Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2011
This was so good! I am definitely going to have to make the balsamic honey dressing again for other foods. Great combination of flavors. Also - next time I think I will chop the onion - the sliced onions had an unappealing appearance - almost earthworm-like once the sauce was added.

Beer Cheese Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I made this recipe as written and it was pretty good... Not quite cheesey enough for my tastes so I added an extra cup of cheese. I used Goose Island 312 beer and (with the extra cheese) it turned out great!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I didn't care for this receipe... I thought there was way too much liquid. I didn't add all of it to the squash yet it still came out to this weird eggy texture. Also way to sweet for me.

Broiled Grapefruit Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Tasty! Broiling mine for about 3 minutes was enough for me... The top was almost burnt, but the grapefruit was still cold in some spots. Next time I will try the baking method so that the grapefruit has enough time to get heated up without burning the top.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
To me, this tasted a little to "milky" and not chocolate enough. I ended up adding more pudding mix and cocco powder.

Quinoa with Asian Flavors

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
It was ok... This was my first experience with quinoa so I don't know how much of it is just my personal taste preference or the actual recipe itself. It had a weird textural feel to it that I didn't care for.

Vegetable Pizza I

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I really liked the idea of this recipe, but it didn't quite turn out how I'd hoped. I followed the directions exactly as written, but I thought there was way too much of the cream cheese/dip mixture. If I make it again I will probably only use one package of cream cheese. Secondly, as an admitted veggie lover I was excited that I could use 5 cups of fresh veggies, however I found this again to be a tad too much as well - it was hard to take a bite of this without the veggies toppling over onto your plate. Next time I make this I will reduce the cream cheese and probably only use about 4 cups of veggies.

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Very good! I only had 2 medium-ish sized acorn squash, which only gave me about 2-1/2 cups... But that could haven been due to the fact that I was impatient with the squash after it came out of the oven. I tried scooping out the squash from the skin with a spoon and ended up making a big mess and burning my fingers. By the time I got to the last half it had cooled a little and I was able to peel the skin right off and actually get all of the squash out as opposed to trying to scrape it out with a spoon. The soup was still good even though I didn't have the full 3 cups of cooked squash. I did use vegetable broth and omitted the bacon to make it vegetarian friendly. Will definitely make again.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
I originally made this recipe as a vegetarian alternative to the traditional meat lasagna for a party. Even the meat eaters loved this... it disappeared long before the regular lasagna. One change I did make was on the sauce. I intended to make it with alfredo sauce, but accidentally bought the wrong size - only a 22 oz instead of 28. In a pinch, I mixed in a 6 oz can of tomato sauce to the alfredo and it turned out great. Will probably make the same way next time.

Homemade Dog Food

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
I made this for my Golden Retreiver and he loved it! I mix a few spoonsful into his dry food in the mornings, so he's not missing out on some of the missing nutrients like calcium. So one batch of this lasts for a long time. I freeze most of it in muffin tins so that I can defrost a little at a time. For his evening meals I squirt a capsule of fish oil over his dry food. This gives him a nice shiny healthy coat!
