Sweet Honey French Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Awesome recipe - I upp'd the honey to 4 tbs which may seem like a lot but it was perfect. I also changed the servings to 18 in order to make a full 1.5lb loaf in my bread machine. I'm going to slice it up and save half to make french toast too! Definitely a keeper.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
WOW, all I can say is WOW. this recipe is absolutely amazing and fail proof. I made these muffins vegan friendly by using lowfat vanilla soy milk, grapeseed oil in lieu of butter, and 1/4 cup of applesauce in lieu of the egg.They taste heavenly. I also substituted whole wheat flour to boost nutrition value. The one thing I would suggest is reducing the sugar to perhaps 1/2 cup in the mix, since the topping adds plenty of sweetness. This will be my only muffin recipe from now on!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
very easy and tasty, i made this recipe just as instructed, but i did add some soy milk into the crumble mix since it seemed a bit too dry. next time i'll also experiment with throwing in some dried cranberries.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
this is a great recipe. i substituted ground beef with a meatless ground beef substitute and my boyfriend said it tasted very meaty for being a "vegetarian" meatloaf. i also added some cumin and chili pepper to give the sauce some extra "oomph." I'm going to make this for Thanksgiving so I have a meatless option at the table this year!

West African Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
YUM! although this recipe sounded a little odd, it was absolutely delicious. I added about a tsp of brown sugar and a whole tsp of cinnamon, as well as a little extra pepper and nutmeg to boost the sweet potato's flavor. cherry tomatoes work just as well as one large tomato, just make sure to use a heaping handful. I also substituted low sodium organic vegetable broth instead of chicken broth to make this vegan friendly. i'm going to make it again for Thanksgiving!

Creamy Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
amazing recipe, very sweet. i cut back a little by using light sour cream and substituted brown sugar for the crumble topping. i also used 2 16oz bags of frozen blueberries defrosted and drained. my pie was oozing with berries and wonderful! 3 hours in the fridge and 1 hour in the freezer help it set up perfectly.

Bird Seed Energy Bars

Reviewed: May 21, 2009
WOW these just came out of the oven and they taste amazing. I made a huge batch for my boyfriend since he is participating in a 12 hour mountain bike race and asked for some "high energy food." i followed some suggestions given by others and added 1/2 cup of applesauce while halving the amount of oil, and also omitted the chocolate chips and used dried cranberries. i didn't have wheat germ so i added an extra cup of quick oats, and i also added 1/2 cup of chopped toasted almonds. this is a very versatile recipe that i'll be using in the future!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
excellent recipe. i made a few adjustments to make these vegan friendly and way less fattening. instead of egg and butter, i just substituted 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce. i also halved the white sugar to 1/2 cup, and also did about 1/4 cup of brown sugar. i used 2 jumbo over-ripened bananas with 1/4 cup of soymilk, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 tsp of cinnamon, and 1 tsp of nutmeg. baked for 10 minutes, took them out half done and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on the tops, then back in for 8 more minutes. they turned out amazing! very moist, fluffy, sweet, and not too fattening.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
these are VERY rich, but very good! they tend to work better when made smaller, and i actually used a bit less butter than the recipe calls for, but the cookie didn't suffer from it due to the added chocolate chips.

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
really tasty, although i find that when you mash the chickpeas, they have a lot of moisture already, so 1 tsp of light mayonnaise was more than enough to make this salad moist. next time i'll add raisins and maybe almonds!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
EDIT: I just finished these and they look very cute - however I used too much frosting and mine taste a bit gooey/undone, but still yummy. think of them as creamy truffle-like treats. If you are using an electric mixer to cream the cake and frosting together, it helps to spray the whisks with a little cooking spray to avoid build-up. I experimented and made one batch with the 30 minute cool-off period, and another batch straight out of the oven, and I find that it's easier to mix when the cake is still hot, but it DOES yield a "gooier" batter. NOTE: if you're using chocolate chips to coat these, you'll need to add shortening OR butter to liquify the chocolate enough. I noticed a lot of people were complaining about this step and thought it should be mentioned!

Salmon with Pineapple Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
I found the pineapple overpowering and the overall flavour combination to be a bit odd / too sweet for my taste.

Lemony Shrimp N' Asparagus

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Pretty good, not too difficult. We added broccoli to make it a bit more hearty and cut back on the soy sauce.
