Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
the blandest lentil dish I ever head. If you are used to flavorful dishes with some body to it save yourself time. Skip this. I cannot believe so many people rated this dish so highly.

World's Greatest Vegetable Broth

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
I made this broth the other day but in a hurry didn't read that I need to roast the veggies first. So I threw them in a bot and cooked them. I am sure they come out even better than what I did when you first roast them but even just cooked this broth has amazing flavor. I just used it as a base for the Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup and it turned out very yummy. Next time I will roast everything first though. will make again

Strawberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
mad it according to directions. The crumb topping was way too sweet and the texture was not right. The rest also just tasted like sugar to me. not a keeper

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
very easy and tasty. I made just the lentils as a meal and liked it a lot. I left out the salsa though. My 2 year old is asking to give her more lentils now. will make again

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2012
very good chili. The one thing I did differently is I used presoaked beans and cooked them with all the ingredients together until the beans were soft. The Chili was not runny at all like some reviewers stated. It had enough spices and I thought the cinnamon gave it an interesting flavor. will make again

Jeff's chocolate outmeal cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
I just realized that the recipe was posted incorrectly. 1 tsp baking soda was left out and instead of 1tsp flour the recipe calls for 2 cups of flour. love these cookies

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
8 cup's sugar? This must be a joke. I tried this frosting and came up to 3 cups and it was getting way too sweet. I substituted 1 cup butter to get a more buttery taste. it worked great for frosting a smooth cake. easy to decorate too. but way too much sugar. If you do cut the sugar, you have to cut the salt as well. a pinch is enough

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
i love lentils and I use them in a lot of dishes. This recipe is ok. Nothing terrible but also nothing great. I might make it again if I can't think of what else to make.

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
easy and tasty. I used fresh beans that I had previously soaked and cooked and I didn't have the tomatoes, instead used some tomato paste. Other than that I did it all as stated and it came out very good. make again!

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
I will never understand why people rate a recipe when they completely changed it around. The way the recipe is, without any changes, is very bland and soupy. With MANY changes, which would completely make a new recipe, it is very good.

Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
For the ingredients this recipe lists i can only give a 3 star rating. I love both lentils and curry and this dish is terribly bland. Trying it a second time, I modified it after reading suggestions by other users. I added carrots and sauted it with the garlic, onion, and celery and added the lentils later. I doubled the curry powder and added yellow curry paste ( that's what I had on hand) as well as a bit of corriander. I substituted the water with broth and used 2 large fresh vine tomatoes chopped instead the canned. At the end, i added fresh curly leaf parsley to it and some pepper. It also can use a splash of lemon juice or vinegar. Chickpeas would work great with this dish.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Very tasty soup!! I also added more water, almost added 2 cans of tomato paste, 5 cloves garlic, half the pasta, one zucchini. I added the basil and oregano at the end. By the time we were done eating, the soup turned into a stew. I will have to add again more liquid tomorrow. Very flavorful and easy to make. one of my favorites now.

Kashmiri-Style Kidney Beans with Turnips

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Very good! Even the the spices with the tomatoes and onion are great by itself over bulgur or couscous. I left out the Garam marsala as I didn't have any on hand. But I increased the spices and added a bit of red pepper to add some spiceeness.

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
I really like the sweet and spicy taste of this dish! I followed the recommendations of other users and doubled the spices and it turned out great. Though, the curry tastes much better the next day after absorbing all the spices. I also used dry chick peas. I heated the spices in the oil and cooked for 3 minutes. then I added the chickpeas, added enough water to cover them, brought to a boil and then simmered for 1.5 hrs. then I added the sauted veggies in a separate pot and added them after an hour of cooking the chick peas. DON'T add salt, and the orange juice early on to the chickpeas as they will have to cook longer. Wait until the very end to add them. served over bulgur as I had no couscous. Came out great!

Cuban Black Beans II

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
If you use canned beans, don't add that much water. 1 cup at the most or non at all - depending on how long you cook the dish. you need 5 cups of water if you cook fresh beans as they need to get soft. It also could use some more spices, but other than that this is pretty good.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
did not like this at all. I love crepes and these were very bland and did not work out the way it is written. I doubled the recipe but only added 2TBS of butter instead of four. It was way too much butter. I also had to add more water as the consistency was too thick for crepes. I will try it differently next time. not a good recipe.

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I did not like this at all. I put half the amount of cayenne pepper in and it was just right for the hot part. But somehow, the it tasted bland. My spices are fresh and I love curries. This is not worth the effort. I will try to fix this dish as i feel bad to throw it out...

Red Kidney Beans (Rajma)

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2009
great dish! After reading the reviews, I added a bit more cinnamon. I also used canned whole tomatoes as I had no fresh ones on hand and used dried beans instead. After soaking them overnight I cooked the dish for 1h30min and all the flavors blended very well. Will definitely make again.
