Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2006
I made it to the recipe until the end. I added juice of half a lime and cilantro. The next day i remembered the avocado i had bought and added it cubed. It looked colorful and pretty with the yellow, orange, and green. Right before serving, I added a slice of colby-jack cheese on top to melt. I really prefer it with the avocado. All in all a nice healthy soup.

Italian-Style Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2006
i enjoyed this recipe. i made a few minor adjustments. i added minced garlic with the onion, i added a few pinches of italian herbs, thyme, oregano, and basil when i added the zucchini. i also just juiced half the lemon and added that with the tomatoes rather than slicing it. i also added a splash of red wine when i added the tomatoes and lemon juice. all in all a nice, pleasant, tasty recipe. i forgot how much i love spaghetti squash!

Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
Very tasty soup. the sweet potatos, pumpkin, and leeks meld together well and add depth to the flavor. i made it to the T except instead of chicken broth, i used homemade vegetable stock. i was a little skeptical before i pureed it, but it turned out nicely. i used just a smidgen of the spices, i didn't want them to overwhelm the soup. i prefer a curried pumpkin to a sweet pumpkin taste. i must admit peeling a pumkin is a pain in the butt.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
this recipe has become a family favorite and staple in my house. my mom asks me to make it almost every week. i make it to the recipe, except i also add some herbs from my mccormick italian herb seasoning grinder. i was skeptical using equal amounts of vinegar and oil, but it turned out really nice. the mustard gives it a nice tang w/o being overwheleming. along with homemade croutons, this makes the best salad! thank you for the recipe!

A little grainy but delicious none-the-less. Great, quick, easy recipe for when i get a chocolate craving! also i substituted almond extract for some of the vanilla, either 1/2 tsp or 1 tsp, i can't remember.

Asparagus and Ravioli with Dijon Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
YUM! This is one of my favorite recipes on this site. the first time i made it, i didn't think it went well with cheese ravioli, it was too rich. now i always make it with farfalle, and also add sundried tomatoes to the asparagus. as suggested by others, i cut down on the mustard amount. i first used 2 tbsps and thought that was scrumptious. then my sister suggested we use a little more, so i added 1/4 cup. i think i liked it that way better. i also have only used the grey pupon country dijon. it has mustard sseds in it and makes the sauce have a more visual texture. i also cut ethe asparagus in smaller pieces, 1" long perhaps and i add extra garlic. i also have experimented with substituting asiago cheese for the parmesan, yum!

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
YUM. This is requested often in my house! i use chicken breasts, because that's what i like, and i use 1/4 cup ground cashews as a thickening agent instead of the cornstarch and water. Very good flavor.

Spring Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
This was my first attempt at risotto. It was also my first encounter with fennel. It is very good, but pretty rich. it's hard to eat a lot of it at once.

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
This is the best pound cake ever. it even beats my grandmas! the only thing i changed is i halved the recipe and make in in a 6" load pan (b/c thats the only baking pan i had) makes the perfect amount. Goes really well with chocolate fondue!
