Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
I made these twice once with all sorts of recommended adjustments, applesauce, chocolate chips, coffee, etc. they were horrible weird fudge blocks. Disappointed and craving a brownie I made again following the recipe almost exactly- I halved it and used vegan margarine and raw sugar. They were amazing! And were superlative with a bit of vanilla rice 'icecream'. (note: in rsponse to a few posts vegan food does equal diet food)

Kingman's Vegan Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
This was a great recipe! These were the best vegan muffins I've had that did not indclude an egg sub. I 1/2 the recipe for one batch of regular sized muffin- baked for about 18 minutes. I added shredded carrots (reduced the zucchini) and made some other minor adjustments >I'm over 7000 ft. so all baking requires adjustments. All that said, really, just follow the recipe and you will be happy.

Rigatoni with Eggplant, Mushrooms and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This recipe is great, but if you are not a fan of simple flavors you will want to add more spices. I tripled the red pepper, added high-grade Greek Oregano, a splash of white wine, and vegetable stock in place of the chicken. I enjoyed it served over whole grain pasta without the goat cheese as a hearty vegan meal and my omni- boyfriend loved this with the goat cheese added. I also 'sweated' the eggplant for 20 minutes or so before simmering it in the sauce (it isn't much work and removes the risk of any bitter eggplant taste)

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This is a great base recipe! I usually try to follow posted recipes pretty close for my first try with it, but this one seemed to offer an easy outlet to adjust for taste. I made mine with crushed almonds, tart cherries, and a few figs. I omitted the brown sugar-- They were plenty sweet without it. I also added 1/2 tsp of almond extract.They came out moist and chewy and everyone who has tasted enjoyed. I will definately make again...Anxious to try other nut and fruit combos.

Easy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I absolutely love this recipe. I followed teh exact recipe and was very happy with teh results. Then I made it with 1/2 cranberries, 1/2 dark chocolate chips in place of the raisins and they were a huge hit. Inspired by another reviewer's comment of a breakfats cookie- I used applesauce in place of the oil, 1/2 whole wheat flour, an extra half cup of fruit (cranberries and raisins), and baked them about twice as large for about 14 minutes. I was really happy with the results of these. This is a fantastic base recipe and also easily tweaked for a dessert or morning treat. Thanks!
