Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
This was delicious as is, but I definitely think it could have some more vegetables. Next time I plan on adding some red bell peppers, tomatoes, and possibly some green chiles. Can't wait to make this one again!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I've made this recipe twice now. The first time I used red curry paste (because that's all I had) and the second time I used curry powder, like the recipe called for. The recipe had much more flavor when I used the curry paste, so that's how I will continue make it in the future. Be warned though - in equal quantities, curry paste is much spicier! Other changes/substitions - light coconut milk, splenda instead of sugar, and doubled the onion content (just because I REALLY like onions). Served over jasmine rice, this was a great meal. Thanks!

Cassie's Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2006
The end result was good, but I definitely wouldn't call it a brownie. I made the recipe as it was written, but had to cook it for 35 minutes. The end result was a moist cake.

Crepes

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2006
Within the span of one day, I have become a crepe addict! These were easy to make & very addictive. To make myself feel slightly better about eating an entire batch myself, I used wheat flour instead of standard white flour. Then I loaded them full of a cream cheese mixture and proceeded to eat them for dessert, breakfast, lunch....help!!

Pat's Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2006
I LOVE this recipe!! The only thing I do differently is cook the mushrooms over a higher heat so they caramelize and get a nice deep brown color. I also add a little bit of precooked crumbled bacon about mid way through to add salt & additional flavor. I might try mixing this with some green beans tonight....yum!

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
Wow, other reviewers were not kidding when they said this was spicy! I made this exactly as described, but shredded the meat after it had finished cooking on high then let it simmer for another 2 hours to absord more of the flavor of the sauce. Afterward, I sqeezed off excess juices with a slotted spoon. This yielded very flavorful meat with a nice kick. I love spicy, but can't imagine eating this with the sauce!

Steamed Radishes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2004
I'm not really sure what I was expecting - after all, this is still a vegetable. Before this, I have only had radishes uncooked on a salad. After being steamed, they taste kind of like cauliflower only more bitter.

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2004
Yum, yum, yum! This is a great comfort food. Definitely make more gravy, it cooks down to almost nothing. Modifications: Cut meat to one pound, left out ketchup, added 2-3 chopped garlic cloves, added one small grated onion.

Cheesy Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2004
This was good, though it was missing something, but I can't quite put my finger on what. Next time I make this I will probably use less celery, add some garlic, and maybe sprinkle a little bacon on top. One last comment - one squash will supposedly serve two as a side dish. I ate the suggested side dish serving size as a dinner and was full after half of that!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
Yum, yum! If you don't like rich foods, this is not the soup for you, as it is very thick and VERY rich. This soup converted someone who thought they didn't like squash. I will definitely make this recipe again. Modifications: Doubled all spices, used vegetable broth, and halved cream cheese.

Spaghetti Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
Very good, though I strayed a bit from the ingredients called for in the recipe. I omitted the green peppers, used ricotta instead of cottage cheese, and used tomato sauce instead of the paste and chopped tomatoes - simply because I didn't have the proper ingredients on hand. Next time I make this will definitely add green peppers for a bit more flavor.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2004
Very good, though I'm not sure I would call this chili. I'm accustomed to chili having a thick tomato-based sauce. This really has no sauce, but more of a glaze I guess I would call it. I substituted black beans for the beans called for in the recipe. I also grilled and shredded the chicken instead of cubing and pan-frying. I will be making this again.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
This has a very good flavor. However, I think I cooked it for a bit too long, as my fudge ended more solid than creamy. I used toasted almonds in this fudge, which added an excellent flavor. I will definitely be making this again.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2003
This stuff is so good that it's dangerous...while cutting this up, I kept sneaking pieces. It turns out very creamy, almost melts in your mouth. I get many compliments every time I make this.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
Wow, I never would have thought there could be such a delicious, healthy alternative to traditional spaghetti! The only things I did differently were use olive oil, leave out the olives, use canned tomatoes and bake the squash for about 45-50 minutes.

Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
This certainly was not bad by any means. However, it had a bit of a salty flavor for my tastes, so I would probably cut the salt a bit if I made it again. I also added the cold sour cream while the sauce was still very hot, so it curdled a bit and didn't end up very creamy - oops!

Nice twist on baked beans. I've had lots of compliments on this recipe.

Beef Samosas

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2003
Very flavorful....was a big hit at a party I brought them to. Its worth the assembly time. Modifications: Substituted potatoes with steamed cauliflower puree, filled wonton wrappers instead of using phyllo dough, and lightly brushed with butter and baked until brown (325 - 350). ed! In an effort to keep this low-carb, I substituted mashed cauliflower for the potatoes. There was no noticeable flavor difference. Also, instead of using phyllo dough I filled wonton wrappers, brushed them with a minimal amount of butter and baked at about 350 until browned.

Chili I

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2003
Some of the ingredients may look strange, but this was really good. I had a couple of friends over to taste test this with me - we couldn't stop eating it. I used all ground beef, light beer, and 2/3 kidney beans 1/3 black beans. Turned out very tasty!

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2003
This recipe was very good - quite a different flavor for a sweet potato. I used Mrs. Dash extra spicy instead of making the spice mix.
