Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This soup is A-mazing! It is so worth all of the peeling, chopping and sauteeing! The only change I made was to use sour cream instead of half and half because it's what I had available. Glad there's enough to freeze leftovers!

Potluck Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
This was an alright soup. I didn't dislike it, but I didn't like it enough to bother making it again (unless I make some radical changes). It just doesn't have a lot of flavor and is light on broth for all of the stuff in it. I had to add vegetable broth to the leftovers to make sure that it will still be soup when I eat them!

Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
This is really good--even my 2 yr old was begging for my bites! I agree that as written there would be WAY too much vinegar. I took the advice of another to use equal parts red wine vinegar and balsamic totaling 1/4 c which was still more than sufficient. Next time I'll try adding some feta.

Green Pepper Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I've had vinegar/sugar marinades on veggies before, but this was sooo good! I don't know if it was the cider vinegar instead of white or the combo of veggies used (I omitted the onion and used 3 colors of peppers) or maybe I was just really hungry, but wow! Definitely will become a staple recipe for me!

Mashed Potato Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This is great for what it is...a quick, easy meal. I don't know what others were expecting, but I was pleasantly surprised. I did add extra cheese and some taco seasoning to boost the flavor. I think it would even be good with some sauteed spinach to add some nutritional value!

Mexican Cream Cheese Rollups

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Yummy little things! A bit harder to make than I was expecting...there was a lot of tortilla tearing, but worth it! The longer they are refrigerated, the soggier they become, so I wouldn't make them too far in advance.

Parmesan Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Made these as written and they are okay. The only thing that really made me want to eat them was serving a really good artichoke marinara sauce with them for dipping. We had leftovers, so I used them as "meatballs" in baked spaghetti and that was pretty tasty--better than as an appetizer alone in my opinion. If I make them again, I'll definitely spice them up a bit!

Dill Wrapped Cream Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
I made the individually wrapped version but thought they were kind of bland. Maybe I need to seriously up the dill or use a different spice altogether. If I make them again, I will definitely use regular cream cheese. I used fat-free and it wasn't as gooey, melty inside as I would have liked.

Alicia's Italian Nachos

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
I am rating this recipe as a great idea because I did not even try to make it as is. The marinara/pizza sauce did not sound appealing--too much like pizza. So I baked the pitas (with olive oil, italian seasoning and parm on them), covered them in some pesto and black olives, melted italian cheese on top, sprinkled with more parm and thoroughly enjoyed! I would rate that 5 stars!

Tomato Bread Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Really good salad. I didn't follow measurements exactly, tweaked it to the amounts that I had. I did lightly toast the bread first, but would have liked it either way.

Thai Peanut Noodle Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
Love the concept and as written (minus the sake) was good; however, it was a little on the sweet side for me and not that spicy. So next time I'll play around with those aspects and get a 5 star recipe out of it! On the bright side, my 5 yr old did actually willingly eat a few bites without complaint!

Beet and Balsamic Vinaigrette Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
I'm new to beets and have never had them in a salad, so I wanted to start with a quick, no fuss recipe to test them out. This is a great one. Simple, not a lot of prep, and tastes fantastic!

Zucchini Cakes

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
These are a great idea! I reduced the recipe to the amount of shredded zucchini that I had (about 2 c) but followed the recipe otherwise. Even with less to work with, there was way more than 5 cakes! And they fry up better and stick together better as smaller cakes anyway. I salted them before serving, which I do with crab cakes too. I will increase the Old Bay next time and look for a good sauce for them, but they're a great recipe to have on hand!

Zucchini Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
If I hadn't totally messed this up, it'd be great--although definitely more cake-like than bar. I drained the zucchini, but apparently that wasn't enough. My middle would NOT set up, so I'll definitely squeeze the zucchini next time. I also took the advice of others and reduced the butter in the icing (to 1/3 c) and powdered sugar to half (1 1/4 c) and increased the cream cheese to 4 oz. I thought it was great and can see how it would be too buttery and sweet as written. It was terrific and hopefully I'll get it right next time!

Radish Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Great concept and if you increase the radish and decrease the garlic, it would be a 5 star dip. As is, you can't really taste the radish because it just tastes like garlicky cream cheese (and I used pretty good sized radishes). I did not have a problem with it being runny at all though.

Chicken Avocado Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
WOW! I never in a million years would have put these toppings on a pizza but I will definitely be doing it again soon! I didn't find it dry at all. I followed the recipe almost exactly minus the cilantro (and quartered it to just feed me)...so, so good!

Mediterranean Farfalle

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2010
Really terrific taste! I was looking for a different way to prepare pasta and this is a winner. Only changes I made were canned diced tomatoes and "vegetarian" sausage.

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
I had an inkling from the recipe that this wasn't really what I was looking for in a cobbler but tried it anyway because of the great reviews. I wasn't impressed. It definitely needs something (cinnamon?). But it's also very "cakey" with a little mushed fruit on the bottom. I prefer my cobbler fruitier with more of a crumble top so I'll keep trying other recipes on here. This one was not for me.

With the addition of garlic, this is a really good, simple pasta dish.

Marshmallow Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
So good that my teeth hurt just looking at it! Really easy, just takes some constant attention. I dalloped it on top of chocolate fudge cake cupcakes because I didn't want more chocolate and it was AMAZING! Almost smore-like...mmmm
