Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
This came out quite good! I made minimal changes. I couldn't find an organic frozen veggie blend at my supermarket, so I threw in some frozen peas and corn and edamame and then I sliced up some baby carrots. I also was short on potatoes (only had three small ones, the equilent of just over one normal-sized potato). I didn't peel my potatoes because that's where all the nutrients are! This is the kind of recipe you can make with what's on hand and it turns out well.I added about an extra 1/8 cup of broth to my dumpling dough and after mixing with the fork I gave up and kneaded with my hands. I've never made dumplings before and don't know if that was wrong, but they came out yummy. I cut the dumplings with tiny cookie cutters in star and flower shapes and the soup came out so pretty! It's nice and thick and stewy. Next time I'll cook it another hour before adding the dumplings (I cooked 4.5 hours, added dumplings, cooked another 1.25 hours) just because I'd like the carrots and potatoes even softer. But no complaints. My toddler is usually a good eater but has been picky lately. She seems to really like this though.

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
My family LOVES this dish! We have made it twice so far. It's delicious and healthy and my toddler eats it up. I like to add a can of pumpkin and I usually use a LOT more spices and a bit less salt than the original recipe calls for. Cumin, paprika, and chili powder are all good for you, so why not? I do it by taste but I would estimate that I tripled all three. We puree half of it to meld the flavors, but we prefer it more stew-like as well. We add Fage 0% Greek yogurt at the end. This is probably our favorite Autumn dish.

Peanut Butter and Banana French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
So delicious! We added a sprinkling of semi-sweet chocolate chips and used fresh whole grain bread from the bakery. We used coconut oil to fry it instead of butter, as it's healthier (good fats and doesn't become a carcinogen at high heats) and it imparted a very minimal but lovely flavor. This was delicious, filling, and not terribly unhealthy. I'm definitely going to make it often!

Peanut Butter Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
My bf and I didn't love these. I thought I'd love them since I love peanut butter and I love spicy food, but this didn't really hit the right spot. Next time I'll make a spicy peanut sauce -- I knew such a simple peanut/spicy fix was too good to be true. I gave this three stars because there's nothing inherently wrong with the recipe, and I did eat it, but I won't be making it again.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
This came out very well. I made some changes to up the nutrient factor: I used 1.5 cups whole wheat flour and .5 cup regular white flour, and I added 10 tbs of wheat germ. I also made 20 muffins instead of a loaf of bread. I think they baked in about 20 minutes, but I forgot to time it.. Just stuck a knife in the center when they looked done, came out clean, took them out. I painstakingly recalculated all the nutrition information for my version which basically came out to (per muffin) 157 calories, 5 grams of fat, 24.5 carbs (2.5g fiber), 3.5 protein. I also have ALL the other nutrients figured out, which I'll be happy to share with anyone who asks. The highest were potassium (200mg), manganese (22%), selenium (13.5%), and thiamine (9%). Delicious AND healthy!

Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
Delicious! I made this for my best friend's bridal shower and it was a huge hit. She said it was the best quiche she's ever had! I used two parts imported gruyere cheese and one part imported sharp white cheddar. I doubled the recipe and added one egg. I also used half and half instead of half of the milk. I used vegetarian ham and I added about half a package of thawed frozen spinach. Everyone was so impressed with my cooking skills, but this was really so easy to do.

Zucchini Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
Sweet JESUS, this is DELISH. Just made this for my best friend's bridal shower. Made an extra for my own household, and I think it's my new favorite food. I made it just as it's written in the recipe, but I doubled it and added one egg. It was a huge hit at the shower; everyone was so impressed with my cooking skills (this quiche looks so pretty along with the amazing taste), but it was SO easy to make.
