Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2004
AWESOME!! So much better than I ever expected! The inner tortillas stay soft, while the outer one crisps a little. I added garlic to the onion, and sauted both onion and garlic first before adding the beans, which I think is a good idea. I also added fresh cilantro to one layer inside and to the top, which looked great. My husband said "This is the best meal you've made." I have also made it for dinner parties, and someone always asks for the recipe. We will definitely make the Mexican Casserole again and again.

Broccoli With Lemon Almond Butter

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
Great way to do broccoli! I toasted the almonds first, which was a really important suggestion. And as for amount of lemon to use (other reviewers thought it was too lemony) I used 1/3 of a lemon, and it was just right. Will keep this recipe handy. Thanks!

Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2005
Really great, and super easy & fast recipe. Excellent. I added a touch of water while blending to make it a bit creamier. Otherwise, perfect. Watch it -- it's heavy on the garlic, even for a garlic-lover like me!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2006
I give this a raving 5 stars -- but keep in mind I made some changes as follows. Because of what I had on hand I used ground ginger and balsamic vinegar. I used egg noodles. I didn't "fry" the onions, but rather, used two green onions entirely, and put them in fresh & chopped. I added lots of corriander and orange peppers and cucumber. Like this, this was deeeelicious, both warm and cold. (As a note, this makes A LOT of sauce, but that's fine by me, as there is some left over for tomorrow! Might use it as a tofu marinade.)

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
DEEEELISH!! I love traditional lentil soup, but this one is so interesting and different. Absolutely love it. I didn't blend 1/2 at the end because I really didn't feel it needed it; had a nice lentil texture just as is. I didn't have any thyme, so added just a touch of tarragon in its place. I will make this again and again (and again)!

Curried Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2007
This is really good!! When you read the ingredients, it looks so simple, and it's easy to guess that taste will be sacrificed as a result. No way! I made it exactly as stated, and it was delicious -- even better (5 stars!) because it's so simple. Hardest part is chopping 2lbs of carrots! Thanks a lot.

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2007
Great cookies. Light tasting, sweet, and they look great. I am not a baker, and they were pretty foolproof for someone like me! I used entirely whole wheat flour, and they were delicious.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
This is great! Easy, fast and really flexible recipe. As some reviewers found it a little bland, I added one fresh tomato and some "bean mix" spices I had, and they were really delicious. I also melted cheddar cheese over the top. They freeze well when wrapped in tin foil and make for good, quick lunches when needed! Thanks a lot -- great idea.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This is GREAT! It's like a quiche without the work! Changes I made were to sautee the onion, and when it was nearly done, throw in the spinach to sautee it rather than boil it. (I used fresh spinach.) I used 1/2 feta and 1/2 cheddar cheese, used whole wheat flour, and I reduced the butter by half. Really great recipe, and I'll use over and over I'm sure! Great find!

Banana Oatmeal Crumb Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
Great tasting and easy! I used whole wheat flour, and nearly 3 full bananas. The cake was moist, beautiful and delicious. For a non-baker, I couldn't believe I'd made it!

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
Deliciously rich and wonderful! A very easy recipe, not daunting for the non-baker like me. A hit -- looks and tastes a lot more impressive than it really is! A couple of notes: 1) I just melted butter and chocolate together in a pot on low heat, no double boiler; 2) mine crumbled into pieces when it came out of the pan, despite greasing and powdering with cocoa. I solved this problem by icing with Hard Chocolate Glaze from this site. Totally hid the problem. I also dipped some strawberries in this glaze.

French Onion Soup III

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
I'm going to give this five stars! But only with these adjustments... Based on the reviews of others, I didn't include the water at all. I used vegetable broth to make this a vegetarian dish. I doubled the onion, and added parsley flakes, garlic and salt. I also added a dash of balsamic vinegar to combat the slightly bland taste to the whole thing. I used seasoned croutons instead of bread, then topped the bowls off with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses, sprinkled with parsley flakes, and broiled them in the oven til slightly browned. Absolutely delicious and very filling soup.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
Finally!! This is it! A flawless banana bread recipe that is easy and delicious! I exchanged half the flour for whole wheat flour, and otherwise made no changes. If you have this many bananas on hand and ready (I used six) then this is the recipe for you!

Quick Wine and Cheese Puff

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I think this is worth 5 stars. It's easy, quick and really good! The wine gives it a nice, unique flavour. I made three changes -- first, I used a 4 cheese pizza blend of cheese (but I bet the swiss would be better), secondly, I added fresh ground pepper, and thirdly, I baked it in a muffin tin. As "muffins" these were baked for exactly 20 minutes and worked out perfectly. Good recipe, thanks.

Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
It is an easy recipe, and I enjoyed making it. I added cinnamon and sugar directly to the fruit. My whole crumble (made up of a collection of fruit: apples, peaches, yellow plums, blueberries, raspberries) was tart. Not sure how to remedy that exactly. Kids, therefore, didn't really eat it, but the adults loved it.
