Thai Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Though a non-cilantro lover, I loved this! Doubled the peanut butter for more protein. Also added 1 1/2 t. of sesame oil, 1 lime's juice, extra ginger, much less sugar, no cayenne. Cucumber and red bell pepper shreds helped lighten up the pasta part. Yum!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Just great! Soak the quinoa first, then drain it, to get rid of the saponin which can make it bitter. For even more nutrition, one could sprout the quinoa first.

Basic Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
I've made a lot of pasta before, mostly with semolina flour, but never heard the tip about letting it rest before rolling and cutting it as your reviewers suggested. Will try that next time! Also great if the egg is whipped with herbs or vegies to equal the water, in a blender, before adding the flour.

Bill's Seasoned Ketchup

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Great idea! (The Japanese have a ketchup-based sauce called okonomiyaki sauce, not so hot, that includes brown sugar, Worcestershire and soy sauces, garlic, and ginger.) Yum.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
OK, I didn't make it with the exact ingredients. Not wanting to add cornstarch, I added 1 small can of condensed milk and enough powdered potato flakes to thicken it, and none of the milk or water called for. The recipe seemed mighty liquid-y in relation to the solids of chopped leftover broccoli & asparagus that I used. I used just a little chicken fat instead of butter to saute the onion. And used more 2% fat Velveeta than it called for, plus some pepper Jack cheese at the end. Also added tiny bits of cooked chicken. Turned out delicious! Thanks for the basic recipe.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
This recipe, minus the specifics for a slow cooker, is identical to the one on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa plastic tub. As a cake baked conventionally, it's very tender and delicious.

Tuna Melts

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
We lose the onion, add some pickle relish to the tuna, and have a slice of tomato under the cheese, all open-face on English muffins. Yum!

Rich Panettone

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2011
I tweaked this so it is lower fat and almondine: Eliminated the rum & vanilla extract. Used 1/4 c + 1/4 teaspoon Amaretto to soak the raisins in, adding the liquid to the first mix. Reduced the salt to 1/2 teaspoon so maybe it would rise better. To cut fat, I replaced the milk and cream with nonfat 1/2 and 1/2. It needed more than 3 cups of flour to keep it from being too sticky, so I added another 1/2 cup. I also stuck tiny marzipan clumps in when folding the dough into the pans for rising. Turned out delicious!
