Mango Salsa Couscous

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
Fruity and spicy, easy to make. I liked it. Limited by what I had on hand, I used a fresh chopped mango and 2/3 c salsa. Also added a dash of salt. Maybe because I used fresh mango instead of dried, it could have used a little sugar or honey.

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
Delicious! A really good tofu recipe. I used an egg to dip the tofu slices in before coating with the bread crumbs to make them stick better, but otherwise the recipe is great. If I do it again I will marinate the tofu first and double the recipe so I can have two layers, maybe add layers of tomato and onion slices.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Pretty darn good! The sweet, savory, and spicy flavors all play off of each other very nicely. I used about twice the cheese the recipe called for, and I'm going to add some more cayenne and maybe some hot sauce next time. I boiled and mashed fresh sweet potatoes and added a little salt. Might add some more spices next time too. Some of the proportions were a bit off for me; I used half the water called for in the beans and still had more than enough filling, so I made two extra burritos. Overall, tasty and unique but a bit time consuming to make.

Fasoliyyeh Bi Z-Zayt (Syrian Green Beans with Olive Oil)

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Love this recipe! Simple, tasty, and different. I make it about any time I make any Middle Eastern-ish meal. I'll throw in a little extra cilantro if I have it sometimes, and I like to put the garlic in first with the olive oil rather than at the end, but it is great as written.

Banana Cheesecake with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Turned out great! Nice blend of sweet banana and tangy cheesecake taste. Rich, delicious, and easy. I mostly followed the recipe, but I used two overripe, frozen-then-thawed bananas, which gave it plenty of banana flavor, and neufchatel instead of cream cheese. Also, cause I had some ginger snaps laying around, I used 1 c of ginger snap crumbs and 1 c of vanilla wafer crumbs for the crust, with about 1 Tbsp of brown sugar. And preferring the traditional pie shape, I baked it in two 9" pie pans (for 40 minutes). The crust was good but maybe not for the cheesecake purists out there. I skipped the caramel sauce, but it was good with some Hershey's syrup drizzled on it.

Cool Raspberry Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Nice! I was looking for something different to do with raspberries in a summer dish, this totally worked. I only used 1/4 cup of sugar (which was perfect for me) and 1 tsp of cinnamon, and just a touch more juice and wine. I liked it warm too, but it was better cold with the sour cream as suggested. Thanks, I'll remember this one.

Peanut-Tamarind Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
Super easy and tasty, this was exactly what I needed. I omitted the fish and hoisin sauce sauce I didn't have any, and used evaporated milk instead of coconut. Went great over some leftover rice pilaf.

Pumpkin Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
I enjoyed this! Given the other reviews I spiced it up a little more with 1 tsp of coriander and ground red pepper, as well as a little cayenne and white pepper. I also used a vegetable bouillon cube dissolved in 1/2 cup hot water rather than stock and added some fake meat crumbles. In some fresh corn tortillas it was delicious, and all the garnishes gave it an interesting blend of vegetable tastes. It was just a little bit bland, I'll probably spice/salt it up more next time. I never would have thought to make something like this. Thanks!

Russian Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
So good! I made three of each layer, and due to others comments on blandness and not enough sauce, I used about 1 3/4 cups sour cream, 2 tsp salt, and 3 cloves of roasted garlic. I added some evaporated milk to stretch the sauce too but it didn't need it, it was a little watery (I forgot to sprinkle layers with flour per the recipe, I think that would've helped too). But it was savory and delicious, even people who didn't like eggplant or onions loved it and asked for the recipe. Thanks!

Kartoshnik with Cheese and Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Delicious! I cooked it along with Russian Eggplant (on this site) and some Russian black bread, great and different vegetarian meal. I added a little more cheese, onions, and salt due to others comments of blandness, and it was quite good. It's a bit eggy, I'd like to try it with either one less egg or one more potato next time.

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
My arm is really tired, but this is delicious. Smooth and soft but firm enough to hold its shape, this is some real fudge. It was easy too, I got it on the first try with the advice of other reviewers (the soft ball test, don't stir in the butter until it cools to 110-115 degrees). I had to "simmer" it at a pretty high temperature to reach 138 degrees though, not much under what I boiled it at, and then I stirred the hell out of it. I added a couple dashes of salt before boiling (will use a little more next time actually), and I was out of vanilla so I added some double strength coffee like another fudge recipe on here. So good, I will be definitely make this again and maybe experiment with additions. Thanks!

Classic Spanish Sangria

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Delicious but way too strong...I only put in a cup of rum already being wary of the alcohol. It was still a bit much. I'd go with 1/2 or 3/4 cup rum next time. I used cheap burgundy, lemon juice instead of a lemon, pineapple-orange juice (it's what I had), and added some maraschino cherries like some others did. Also, don't let it sit for longer than an evening with all the fruit in it or it gets real bitter (probably from the citrus rinds). But again, it was delicious!

Beer Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
So good! I used a little extra beer and garlic, and some Cajun seasoning. Had to rehydrate with more beer and reheat a few times over the course of the night, but it was just as good after doing so. Will totally make again! UPDATE: This was also really good with Monterey Jack cheese instead of cheddar, and onion powder and a little white pepper instead of garlic.

Grilled Beer Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
This was really good, but the butter/beer mixture didn't absorb into the chicken much. I just kinda threw some on after they were cooked too. But it was well received at my BBQ!

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
This was good, though I agree with reviewers that it needs beef broth for that stroganoff flavor. Even though it wasn't quite stroganoffy enough, still very good.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I just made some of these (with a few substitutions) and ate one for lunch. Delicious! I had soaked and cooked a pound of kidney beans, so I tripled the recipe and used 5 cups of kidney beans. I did what one reviewer advised and drained/dried everything as much as possible. I used some cayenne instead of pepper sauce and added black pepper and fresh parsley (had some around, why not), and salt (since they weren't canned and needed it). I needed more bread crumbs like the same reviewer said, so I used 1/2 cup of cornmeal (it worked, but not particularly good enough to recommend). I made the patties big and baked them a few minutes longer. So good! I'ma keep playing with this recipe, thanks! Update: I froze the rest and they're really dry when reheated. Maybe it was the cornstarch.

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
This is a fine and tasty, and different, bean soup. Extra lemon juice and olive oil is nice, as other reviewers have recommended. I've also added more veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans) which was pretty good too.

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Oh man! I am eating this right now and it's great! I love asparagus and creamy soups, but I wasn't sure how this would come out. But bam! I used 3/4 cup broth to simmer the veggies in (cause I had 2 cups) and 1/2 tsp more lemon juice. I also accidentally got sweetened plain yogurt, but the subtle sweet accent is not without it's charm. I bet sour cream would be good too. Thanks!

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2008
Ok, I made this before the way it's printed here and it was awesome. So I had cilantro and wanted to make it again but didn't have all the stuff, so I got creative. I used raw almonds and swiss instead of walnuts and parmesan, and ground red pepper instead of cayenne (subtler, to fit the subtler nuts and cheese), and lemon juice for vinegar. It was interesting. Just as good I think, and it had this unique "clean" quality to the taste. Thanks!

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
This was some good granola! I used molasses instead of syrup and ground bran flakes cereal instead of wheat germ (cause it was what I had). Wawesome!
