Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
We loved this recipe - excellent! Tender, great taste. It took about 55 minutes on the grill with a low temp.

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Very good. You really can't taste the vinegar like you would think.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
Excellent! Even my husband liked them sans meat. Pretty spicy with the jalapeno if you're a total gringo!

Spicy Fish Soup

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Excellent - spicy, full of flavor. I loved it. Followed recipe except doubled the cod. Definitely a keeper. It's great for dieters, especially.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
I loved this recipe, and so did my non-tofu-loving husband. My 19-year-old son even really liked it. Excellent and a keeper.

Maple Glazed Pork Loin

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
My family really liked this. It has a sweet, rather unusual flavor. I told them afterward about the syrup in it, giving it the unusual taste. Pretty much followed the recipe.

Vegetarian Meatloaf with Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
My family loved this, even my non-vegetarian husband, who is suspicious of these kinds of recipes. I followed the recipe pretty closely first time. Am making it today again and might modify slightly just to experiment. It honestly does taste like "meat" loaf!!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
Yummm. I've tried several banana bread recipes, and I think this might be the best ever. I used 1/2 C white sugar and 1/2 C brown sugar and it was plenty sweet.

Orange Beef-Style Tofu Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
Lovded this!Am making it for the third time today. I'm using broccoli, garlic, mushrooms, zucchini, and onion for the veggies today. Do double the sauce when you make it. Be careful with the chili paste; it IS very spicy. I used less last time and the family liked it much better.

Tofu Peanut Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Wonderful recipe! I used a Thai peanut sauce and fresh veggies (broccoli, bamboo shoots, zucchini, sprouts, mushrooms), added fresh minced garlic and canned ginger. After frying all the tofu (about five batches in a wok), cleaned the wok out, put all tofu in, added peanuts and sauce, and finally, the already cooked veggies. GREAT taste and texture.

Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
I made this for my son (newly vegetarian, age 19) and husband (non-veg) and they loved it. I used only one onion because my son is not an onion lover. I followed the recipe pretty closely. Like everyone said, it makes a ton of food, so be prepared for left-overs for awhile. In re-reading this info, on a freezing cold October day in Colorado, by golly, I'm heading to the kitchen to make it AGAIN. Thanks for sharing the recipe, julieliz!

Tasty Breaded Seitan

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I followed the recipe very closely, except that I doubled the breading mixture (actually needed about 1-1/2 times the amount) and used olive oil for frying instead of vegetable oil. I loved it. Who needs chicken nuggets when you can have these? Thank you, veggigoddess, for this wonderful recipe!!!

Spinach Pomegranate Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
Fabulous salad and easy to make, except for seeding the pomegranate. My daughter said it took her about 15 minutes to seed it. This is a keeper, and is the perfect Christmas salad. Thanks for the recipe!

Split Pea Soup Atu

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Wonderful, tasty soup. I cut the water in half, used vegetable broth and buillon instead of chicken, and otherwise followed the recipe. Even my very picky son liked it very much. That says a LOT! My daughter said she hadn't had split pea soup in years, and didn't realize how good it is. Many thanks for this recipe that I will use again and again.

Mother's Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I thought this was Ok, but pretty bland. I would have to spice it up a lot to try another time. Added more potatoes than the recipes suggests, though, to yield enough for a family. Two of my family members DID like it a lot, I might add.

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Superb recipe. I followed it pretty closely, other than adding in an extra half pound of scallops. My family said it was outstanding, something they rarely say about a particular recipe. Tasted like a gourmet meal, truly.

Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Incredibly good soup. I followed the recipe very closely. One tip - I went to Natural Grocers for lemongrass, and they only had dried lemongrass (bulk foods). My colander wasn't fine enough to strain out the lemongrass, and the texture IS like eating dried grass. The taste is worth it to make sure to include, but I was spooning out pieces of lemongrass because it was like eating pieces of straw. Make sure to use a fine strainer if you can. The recipe was very time consuming (I did a double batch), but the results were worth it. I put the noodles into the broth and they did use up a lot of the broth, so I added some chicken broth toward the end.

Blueberry Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Very good flavor. I used sherry instead of apple juice. Yummy. I didn't give five stars because the topping was kind of sparse rather than nice and thick like some cobblers are. However, I used an extra 1/2 C or so of both peaches and blueberries. If I were to make it again, I would double the doughy topping unless I stuck to strict fruit measurements. Oh, and I used 1/2 tsp. of cinammon and nutmeg instead of mace, as other readers suggested. I would probably add more spice next time, too, because I love cinammon taste on peaches. Still, it was very good and not at all difficult to make.

Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
This is soooo good that it deserves maximum stars. I followed others and fried corn tortillas in cooking spray, dipped in green sauce, rolled chicken & cheese inside. Added red enchilada sauce (1 C) to the verde mixture over the top. Oh, used fresh roasted green chilis, too. Skipped green onions but added cherry tomatoes and green olives, along with avocado. My entire family loved it so much we ate every bite in one evening (four adults). Absolutely delicious - thanks for recipe. This is a keeper!
