Marinated Barbequed Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Totally solid, useful recipe. Nothing that's going to stop you in your tracks, but a reliable, practical recipe. Thanks -- this was just what I was looking for.

Artichoke Bites III

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
I had a VERY difficult time "folding" the artichoke into the cheese mixture. I ended up using my fingers, which got really, really goopy. Two big fans of artichoke gave them a 4 star rating, and the rest of us rated them a 1 or 2.

Chutney Baked Brie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
Excellent! Interesting and new! I've served brie in many fashions, and this is definitely one of my faves. I used salted cashews, for what it's worth. Will definitely serve again.

Barley Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2006
I like this recipe. -- it is intersting and different. I skipped the mushrooms altogether. I think it would be good with carrots addded for more colour and flavour. Good as a side dish for sure -- probably not a main dish.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
This is good as a side salad, and also wrapped in a tortilla with cheese and baked until crispy outside. It's a solid recipe, although I would suggest cutting the vinegar down by half.

Quick Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2006
What's good about this recipe is how easy & healthy it is. What I did not like is how tomato-y it tasted. It was a bit mushy, too, and needed more spices. This is okay, but not outstanding.

Spinach Salad with Pepper Jelly Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
What a great salad! The dressing is amazing, and I've also used it on just a regular old romaine salad. Lots of compliments from guests. Sweet and surprising! I would suggest adding more olive oil than called for, as it's rather thick otherwise. Thanks for he recipe -- I'll use a lot, I'm sure.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
I would actually give this a 4.75, only because I found the lasagna to be very watery. Next time I would cut down on the broth. Great tasting, though, and leftovers just as good or better. I used homemade veg broth, which I do for everything. Very easy to make -- just keep all the ends of veggies that you have in a bag in the freezer (carrot ends, broccoli stalks, onion bits, etc). When you have enough to fill a pot, cover them with water and boil until the veggies have basically nothing left! Drain and keep the "broth." You can compost or throw out the soggy veggies, and then freeze the broth for when you need it. Great way to recycle old bits of veggies, and couldn't be healthier or more natural!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2006
This is very good. I used brown rice, which required more water to be added, and turned out stickier than I think the jasmine would have. Next time I'll stick to the recipe. As others did, I roasted the asparagus for about 5 mins in the toaster oven, and did the same with the cashews. I also cut the butter down to 2 tbsp. I used homemade veg broth, which I do for everything. Very easy to make -- just keep all the ends of veggies that you have in a bag in the freezer (carrot ends, broccoli stalks, onion bits, etc). When you have enough to fill a pot, cover them with water and boil until the veggies have basically nothing left! Drain and keep the "broth."

Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2006
B-O-R-I-N-G. I added a sauteed onion, parmesan cheese and nearly a cup of tomato sauce, and still I can't give this more than a 3. It's boring! It's easy, but not fabulous, not memorable, not interesting. I won't make again unless I do a lot to it, in which case, we're talking a whole new recipe.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
This is a good recipe; I like it better than the traditional bulgar tabbouleh. It is lighter and tastier, I think. With this recipe, I would suggest decreasing the amount of lemon juice, adding salt & pepper, and adding small cubes of firm tofu. I enjoyed this very much -- thanks.

Satay Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
Excellent both in taste and in ease of preparation. Versitile recipe -- my husband had his on chicken, I had mine on tofu. Good with snow peas and other crunchy vegetables. I also have added ground ginger (1 tbsp or so) and a tsp or so of garlic chili paste. I think this latter could be increased, if you like spice. Really great recipe -- I won't be looking for another one.

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2006
I would actually give this 3.5 stars. It's good. A very average (not less) and tasty recipe that I'm sure I'll make again. I agree that spices should be kicked up, and I also added a yellow curry powder, which gives it a rich taste that I really like. Healthy and easy. Good.

Baked Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Style

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
Good way to do squash, and my husband LOVES it. Can be made with just one can of tomatoes, and I find that intensifies the flavours and also makes a reasonable amount of sauce. The way it's written makes a lot of extra sauce, which is okay too! I have used 3 tablespoons of fresh basil instead of dried, and it's great with that too. Fun to serve it in the shells.

Mild Coconut Tofu Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2005
After reading the reviews of others, I made some changes. To spice it up, I added a dash (or two) of cayenne, and reduced by half the amount of water. I also skipped the white sugar completely. Lastly, I thought it needed some colour and some crunch, so I threw in some raw snow peas in the simmering stage. This is a good dish, and I'll probably make it now and then.

Gobi Aloo (Indian Style Cauliflower with Potatoes)

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
It's so dry! I took the advice of others and added both 1/2 can of coconut milk AND nearly 1/2 cup of vegetable broth, but still it was dry. I didn't have any paprika, so used a little cayenne instead, which made it quite spicy. Also, used nearly 2 tsp of fresh ginger in place of the ginger paste. I don't think I'll bother to make this again, as there are better Indian dishes on this site -- see "Cholay," or "Absolutely Perfect Panak Paneer" or "Curried Chickpeas."

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
It's good. I added some yellow curry powder, which I think improved the taste a lot; made it "warmer." I didn't love that this recipe used the chick pea can liquid, as it's so high in sodium, but I think using water instead would make for a much runnier dish. However, because of this, I completely avoided adding any salt, and still found it pretty salty. In my opinion, the recipe "Cholay" on this site is better, but this is pretty good. The fresh corriander really makes this.

Apple Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Not my thing AT ALL. For the first time, I threw out more than half of what I cooked. I was hoping that it would be a good surprise, but in fact, this recipe is exactly as strange as it sounds. Is it lunch? Dinner? Side dish? I can't imagine what it might accompany. Not a good recipe in my opinion, sorry.

Apple Crisp IV

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
Excellent! Couldn't stop eating it! I did as others suggested and cut the flour in half. This is a good idea but BE SURE to also reduce the butter in that case. I once made the mistake of not doing that, and the dish was waaaaay too greasy. Another idea is to add toasted pecans, which is really nice. Great recipe -- no need to look for another one, with these modifications.

Butternut Squash with Onions and Pecans

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
Using an acorn squash instead, I baked it so that the flesh was soft, and therefore, the dish was more of a squash mash. I added dried cranberries on someone else's recommendation, and I think it was this touch that put it up to a 4 star rating for me. The nuts are awesome, especially with the cranberries and parsley. Excellent!
