Cranberry Apple Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I LOVE this recipe! I've always been a huge fan of canned cranberry sauce, but in the past few years I haven't bought a single can. This recipe is amazingly simple and amazingly delicious. I buy extra cranberries in November and December and freeze them just so I won't have to wait until fall to have more.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Mmmm. These are delicious cookies. I did make some changes though. I substituted whole wheat flour for half of the flour, instead of using 2 cups of white sugar, I used 1 cup of brown sugar and 2/3 cup white sugar, I substituted apple sauce for almost all of the oil, I doubled the cinnamon and added dashes of ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves.

Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Wow! This is ridiculously good! Although, I will change it a little next time. I thought the taste of the filling was delicious a little bit at a time, but in a full serving the salt and pepper were a little overwhelming for me. I'll go a little light on both of those seasonings next time. This time I did substitute a few veggies - I didn't have cauliflower or carrots, so I used broccoli and asparagus. Yum.

Curried Wild Rice and Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
This soup is really tasty! I was skeptical about the orange juice, so I waited until the end and added it to a small bowl as a test. I was amazed by the tangy complexity it added. It may sound like a weird ingredient to put in soup, but it's definitely a good addition. I only had one, smallish, butternut squash, but I didn't adjust any of the other amounts in the recipe and it still turned out great. ****In later attempts I've waited too long to use the squash and it had gotten sweet. Beware sweet squash, the sweetness really didn't work well with the other flavors in this soup.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
This was good, but not as good as I had hoped. I didn't read the suggestions from other cooks though and next time I'll use crushed tomatoes instead of the soup.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
Yum! I may never buy Italian dressing again! I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt and olive oil instead of canola. Delish!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
Oh my GOD this is AMAZING!!!! I never thought I'd like butternut squash soup, but one of my students gave me a butternut squash and I have been looking for something to do with it that didn't involve sugar. So I figured I'd give this recipe a shot. And now I think I'm hooked! I'm a vegetarian, so I used vegetable bullion instead of chicken and I only used half the cream cheese, but it was delish!

Jalapeno Poppers II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
These were WAY too hot for me. I wasn't even able to finish 3 and I normally love poppers. My guess is that a lot depends on the peppers that you buy and maybe how ripe they are, but I don't know what to look for to determine how hot they'll be. The recipe was also very time consuming. The peeling, deseeding, and filling were all a pain. I didn't have gloves, so I put ziplock bags over my hands which made the job harder. If I were to make these again I might not roast the peppers and I'd probably cut them in half, which would make the seeding and filling easier. It would also cut the heat by increasing the filling to pepper ratio.

Broccoli Spaghetti Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
If I were to make this again I wouldn't put the pasta in or would at least only put it in each individual bowl right before serving it. It got too soggy to fast. Whoever said that it was just like boiled broccoli was right, but I love broccoli so that part was ok. I added a seasoning mix called "Montreal Steak Seasoning" which really kicked up the flavor.

Vegan Mexican Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
The only things I changed were using regular stewed tomatoes instead of the ones with chilies and using regular salt instead of seasoned salt. Maybe it's just the fact that the hominy creaped me out (I'd never even seen it before and it wasn't at all what I expected), but I made it two days ago and haven't touched it since I tasted a few spoonfuls when it finished cooking.

Spinach Lasagna I

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
This lasagna was AMAZING! Ok, so I did change things. I think "tomato sauce" really means "spaghetti sauce" in this recipe, so that's what I used. My guess is that the people who thought it was bland used plain tomato sauce. (If you use plain tomato sauce you'll want to add some sugar and Italian seasonings to make up the difference.) I also added a zucchini, a yellow squash, and a portabello mushroom, all chopped and saulted with the onions and garlic and added to the cheese mixture. I used more parsley than the recipe called for. I didn't have fresh parsley so I was using dry. Normally with dry you want to use less, but I decided to throw in 1/4 cup. My casserole dish was overflowing before I'd used all of the ingredients, so I didn't get a chance to use all of the tomato sauce. Even so there was a lot of extra liquid once I cut out the first piece. No harm done, but I'll probably cook the spinach first, like other people suggested and drain off all of the extra liquid. Oh and one last thing. 1.5lbs of spinach seemed like a ton so I only ended up using half. I definitely recommend chopping it first. When chopping greens a good hint is to put them in a glass measuring cup (or similarly shaped container) and use kitchen scissors to chop them up (the scissors should point into the container). Enjoy!

Beezie's Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
The first time I made this it was for a work potluck. I got a ton of compliments. I change a few things though. I don't use either the jalapeno or the green peppers, I use less than half the salt, and for convenience I use dried, chopped onions. If you use uncooked regular rice, the rice will take far longer than 20 minutes to cook. 20 minutes might be long enough for quick rice or you could use rice that had already been cooked. I've heard that cooking the rice separately before adding it to a soup helps keep it from turning into mush. Oh and I don't always bother to puree the soup. It's great either way.

Quick, easy, and delicious. The chicken ends up unbelieveably tender.

Taco Soup VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2005
This recipe is great! I don't know that I'd call it a soup as much as a stew or chili, but it was very tasty. I used different beans and didn't bother with the green onions.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2004
This was my first turkey ever. I had trouble with the loosening of the skin. It was time consuming, but definitely do-able. I baked it breast side down for the first two hours to prevent it from drying out. Flipping it over after that was also hard but do-able. It ended up tender and very flavorful.

Curried Lentils

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2004
When I first looked at this recipe I wasn't sure what "cream of coconut" was. It sounded like cream based coconut soup to me. After looking up and down the aisles of an Asian market I decided that I thought the recipe had intended "coconut milk." That's what I used and it turned out well. It was very flavorful and spicy, though not too hot.
