Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
It's hard not to eat the entire thing right after it comes out of the oven!! I added a teaspoon of cinnamon the second time around. And make sure not to let the jam touch the edge of the pan!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Again, how can you go wrong with chocolate and PB? I used about half crunchy PB to half creamy. I also added 1 tspn vanilla as per one reviewer. Next time I'll try to the crushed graham cracker suggestion because I love the grittiness of Reese's. I used mini muffin papers (spreading was not easy or clean); they froze quickly. It helps to keep the PB mixture in the fridge - it's just easier to work with when a little hard. They're deliciously evil! ~UPDATE~ I made these again with 1/4 cup crushed graham - I'd use even more next time. Also, I wanted them bite sized so I just froze the PB mix, rolled them into balls, froze again and then dipped. But that just makes them easier to eat... curses!

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Baby food for adults. I cut the margarine to half, used only two eggs and cut the sugar to (I think) 1/4 cup. Sprinkled cinnamon only on top. Used a blender for smooth carrots. Baked beautifully.

Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2009
Really super! Nice seasoning of the beef. I baked the tortillas before assembling the lasagna to minimize sogginess. I also added corn, tortilla chips... and some other stuff. The sour cream baked in is great for creaminess. Even without cheese this was delicious!

Wicked Garlic Tofu Saute

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
Really great and filling in a light way. That said, I stuck to lite soy sauce in place of oyster sauce (kosher old me) and used a chicken consomme in place of the broth. I also used a bag of mixed frozen broccoli, carrots, water chestnut (best. crunch. ever), snap peas and I threw in shitake mushrooms. Served it over brown rice - it came together quickly and easily, my man liked it and I'm looking forward to leftovers.

Pineapple Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
This isn't knock-your-socks-off-good but I'm giving it five stars because it is really delicious and just so easy. My guests made lots of yummy sounds :). I did 1/2 cup dark and 1/2 cup light brown sugar; just 1/4 cup Earth Balance margarine; one can crushed pineapple and one can tidbits; and I went crazy with the cinnamon! Make sure you drain the pineapple really well!!

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This recipe separates the boys from the men. I felt such peer pressure from the reviews ("just do it" - "don't do it!"). I'M GLAD I PUT IN THE PB!!! I could smell it - and it made the borth more opaque - but it does NOT lend a nutty flavor. Just a fullness. My boyfriend was shocked. I was relieved. We both went to bed with full bellies.

Black Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
Awesome dinner! I didn't have salsa so I got creative with a tomato, green pepper, a little red onion, green onion and seasoned the beans with 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp cumin, about 3/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp chili powder. Could even use more seasoning. Baked at 400* for just under ten minutes for crunchy ww tortillas. Lots of room for adjustments here!

Make-Ahead Vegetarian Moroccan Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
A great dish that makes terrific leftovers! Go heavy on the spices - they're good! I didn't do the last step with the cornstarch since we like more soupy consistency. Used a whole bunch of kale - very forgiving recipe that allows you to add whatever you have on-hand.

Bake Sale Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Woof! these are tart!! Follow GourmetMommy's advice for yumminess. I actually used Earth Balance buttery vegan spread for the crust and it came out perfectly. It has definitely made a place in my dessert loop.

Easy Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
You really can't go wrong with this salad. Sometimes I swap out the Parmesan for feta. Also, I would recommend toasting the pine nuts - that extra crunch is great.

Hummus Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I thought this was really great. My Israeli boyfriend said it was sacrilegious to use hummus in such a manner but it lent a very creamy texture. I took the idea from another recipe to use a tortilla instead of pizza crust and I added olives, mushrooms, green pepper, onion and a sprinkle of mozzarella. On a tortilla it only needed about eight minutes in the oven. Really nice change of flavor!

Kale and Quinoa with Creole Seasoning

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Two super-foods in one delicious dish!! What I did: made a full cup of quinoa but used only one bunch of kale. I doubled the seasoning (made Creole seasoning from AR) and the salt - that was a mistake! In fact, cut some of the salt - with the chicken broth, you don't need it! I felt that it was lacking some crunch... so I threw in toasted almond slivers and pine nuts - PERFECT! I can't wait to make this again!

Balsamic Pea Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I was worried that my guests wouldn't go for a pea salad - by the time I finished in the kitchen, there was one spoonful of this left for me to taste... 'nuff said!! I cut back on the mayo (used about a heaping tablespoon) and would cut back even more. I would also try adding more balsamic just because I love that kick. Substituted the feta with chunks of cheddar. The almonds are so perfect in this! I love peas so this salad is like a double whammy of deliciousness for me.

TABASCO® Grilled Peppers and Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2013
I used one onion to four peppers and sauteed it all on the stove, starting with the onions alone and then adding the peppers. This allows the onions to get softer and leaves the peppers with a slight crunch. I might cut back a bit on the Tabasco next time (maybe 3/4 tsp). Complements many dishes!

Winter Green Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
I made this salad two nights in a row and each time I was assembling the ingredients I was thinking, "really??" But it works! And it's amazing! There are a lot of ingredients but it comes together very quickly and is beautiful to boot! That said, I had to make some changes... no collard greens or romaine at the store, so I used boxed spring mix and more kale; no orange pepper; toasted almond slivers instead of walnuts; half a small red cabbage; cut the oregano to 1/2 tsp (I don't like oregano). Leftovers are okay because the dressing doesn't soak everything. Just incredible!

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
OUTSTANDING!! Props to Rhiannon's review - follow that advice for tender meat and a nice sauce. As per other reviewers, I cut the soy sauce (low sodium and still salty enough) and rice vinegar (didn't have red wine vinegar) to 1/4 cup but doubled it; used only 1/4 cup honey and then squirted in a little more when it was in the pan. Used corn starch to thicken. Added some red pepper flakes for my spicy BF. Served over basmati rice. It's restaurant good.

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Holy Smokey the Bear!! I could almost hear the loudspeaker last night: "step away from the ice cream!" The only change I made was half and half in place of cream. Deadly good.

Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
As I was working with this dough, I was cursing and swearing I would never make these again... until I TASTED ONE!!! Oh my lawd, these are amazing. My guests wouldn't stop eating them! I used Earth Balance instead of butter and upped it to one cup instead of shortening. You need plenty of flour when rolling the dough out; you must chill the dough before attempting the roll out. You must freeze the rolls once rolled up. Forget the dollop of sauce - it just made my cookies spread and collapse. Leave some space around the edge of the dough when you spread the sauce - when you roll it up it will squirt out. If you can serve them warm, soooo good. These take time and patience, but they are truly worth it.

Flounder Mediterranean

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Really nice sauce! My BF is in heaven. I used canned diced tomatoes, a regular yellow onion and, because I could not find kosher capers or kalamata olives, I used a jar of mixed capers and olives and some other red stuff - it was great! It would be fantastic on pasta!
