Cherry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
Mmm Mmm Good! I veganized the recipe, using Earth Balance (1/3 c.) in place of the butter and soymilk for the milk. Per the reviews I added in a 1/4 t. of vanilla and a couple of sprinkles of cinnamon (which I love) to the batter and reduced the sugar to 3/4c. Turned out really good with some nice crispy edges. Definitely bake in a smaller pan for thicker pieces. Great the first day piping hot with a scoop of soy ice cream and oh so good the next served cold by itself!

Tofu Tacos I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly except for not having herb tofu so I just added 1T of McCormick Poultry seasoning to the tofu after crumbling. Skipped on the cheese and avocado. Leftovers great in soft tacos the next day! **Oh yeah and I always freeze my tofu per the Mock Chicken recipe.

Mock Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
I recently switched to a full vegan diet and this recipe has really helped increase my possibilities with tofu. Instead of simmering the tofu I just bring the tofu down from the freezer a day before I need it and place it in the refrig to thaw out, you know like I used to do with meat. Works great, Thanks!

Breaded, Fried, Softly Spiced Tofu

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2007
My first attempt at making tofu and it turned out great thanks to this recipe! Per the Mock Chicken recipe I put the tofu in the freezer until a day before I needed it when I let it thaw in the refrigerator instead of simmering it in hot water like the recipe indicated. Wrapped in a dish towel I am able to squeeze out a fair amount of liquid without having to place a heavy object on it like I have seen suggested. I did make the mistake of buying firm instead of extra firm tofu but it did not cause any problems. These turned out great crunchy and tasty on the outside with a chicken like texture on the inside. Definitely keeping this one!

Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
Ice Cream Cake is a family tradition on birthdays. This recipe showed me how I could just as easily make one as buy one. Used the Black Chocolate Cake recipe for the cake and made it in 2 round cake pans instead of a 9x13 which meant I had to slather the ice cream on by hand instead of using the square shape of the ice cream gallons. Made one with mint chocolate chip and the other with cookies and cream.

Black Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
Perfect! Used this cake to make Ice Cream Cake and it turned out great. Used 2/3 c. Smart Balance Buttery Spread in place of the shortening and followed reviewers advice and added 2 t. of instant coffee to the boiling water.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
I made this recipe to use in the Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas recipe from this site. Very easy to make and oh so tasty! I really think that the quality and heat factor of the salsa used really makes the difference. The heat from the fresh made picante sauce I used really toned down the strong tomato taste that is tomato paste and kept it from becoming too much like an italian sauce. Followed the recipe as written plus a couple of shakes of cayenne.

Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2007
I was ok with this recipe before I made it then began to doubt it when I realized how not cheesy it was, I mean come on Enchiladas=Cheese to me!! But lo and behold it turned out really well, forgot all about the lack of cheese. I did sub fresh ingredients for the processed ones..1 1/2 c black beans for the canned...1 1/2 c. of diced fresh tomatoes and green chilies...home made tortillas and 1/4 c of fresh made picante sauce..and the Red Enchilada Sauce from this site for the 1 cup of salsa. I also took the advice of another reviewer and just put the cheese in with the filling instead of on top. Very Good with a big salad!

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
I made the Spaghetti with Marinara sauce from this site and loved it however when I tried it with lasagna it came out a bit too liquidy, but this one worked great! The chunkiness worked really well with lasagna and provided just the right amount of liquid for the pasta to bake. Instead of adding meat I just sauteed all the veggies in about 2T of olive oil and then followed the recipe from there. The spices worked well however I like a bit of spice so I added in some red pepper flakes along with a sprinkle of baking soda as a reviewer suggested to reduce the acidity. This is definitely my lasagna sauce, and perhaps my spaghetti sauce, from now on!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
Tasty, healthy and easy to make, what else could one ask for? If you have never tried quinoa before, as I hadn't, don't worry you are in for a treat! I used 3 cups of just made black beans instead of the canned, doubled the cayenne and omitted the cilantro since amazingly I did not have any in the fridge! This will definitely become a regularly made dinner.

Whipped Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
Mmm-Mmm good! I had a craving for some potatoes and these hit the spot! Turned out nice and creamy with a great seasoned taste. I definitely used more than a pinch of salt and pepper but to each his own! Served with chicken fried steak II, biscuits and salad, yum!

Chicken Fried Steak II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
Just what I was looking for, a chicken fried steak with some spice to it! I dipped each steak in all the mixes and then set them out on wax paper for about 20 minutes, dipped in last mix again and then fried. Had no problems with the breading. Definitely have to serve with mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy!

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
I was pretty skeptical about this recipe but knew so many reviewers could not be wrong. It turned out great, nobody could even tell that there was cottage cheese! I followed the recipe to the letter except for subbing in low fat sour cream in and canned chicken breast. Will definitely be making again!
