Raw Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
These are amazingly simple and delicious. My bars also crumbed a bit... bummer, I'll have to experiment with them to get them just perfect. :)

Egg Free Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2010
These are kind of addictive. :) I used fresh cooked pumpkin, ww pastry flour, earth balance margerine, and vegan chocolate chips to veganize them. While one person in my office (who favors McDonalds) said they tasted "too healthy" everyone else seemed to gobble them up. I'm going to try them again sans chips -perhaps with the spice recommendations of other reviewers. These are a great fall cookie!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
This is great! I doubled the recipe and used vegan sugar and it was amazing! Kept well in the fridge too!

Tempeh Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
YUM!! I will confess... I had my doubts about this while I was putting it together. I played around with the recipe a bit - using sweet pickles instead of dill, adding chopped carrots for extra crunch, and skipping the seaweed, simply because I didn't have any at home (tho I might get some now simply for this recipe!) This is great straight out of the bowl, and I'm sure it will only get better as the flavors meld. I'm planning to enjoy a big scoop of this on top of a green salad... YUM! Thanks.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
These are kind of amazing. Light and fluffy - and very customamizable. (Is that a word?) I subbed a little flax meal and protein powder for some of the flour - next time I'll use some whole wheat flour too to make it extra healthy. I cut the oil in half, used non fat vanilla flavored greek yogurt, and used agave instead of white sugar. I also made some with raisins and some with raisins and dark chocolate. This is my new go-to muffin recipe! I'm gonna try it with carrots next time!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
Tasty? Sure. To die for? Not so much. For such amazing reviews, I was expecting more I guess. These were good, but they fell flat for me. If I made them again, I'd zest them up with some lemon or something. But I think I'll just use another recipe next time.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
There is a reason this recipe has five stars!! Amazing! I almost didn't make it because I didn't have a full 1/2 cup of butter. But I read the reviews, and decided to go for it, and subbed a couple of tablespoons of oil for the missing butter. It was still the best cornbread I have ever tasted. This is dangerous good. :)

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
This is pretty great. I used up my leftover half and half and frozen strawberries - even added a little vanilla coffee creamer b/c I did not have quite enough half and half. I used less than half the sugar and it is PERFECT. This is dangerous! I can't wait to try other combos.

Colonial Brown Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
Despite the word "sweet" in the descriptor line, I did not expect this to be as sweet as it is. It is rather tasty - next time I'll cut some of the sugar and try for a more savory version. As is, this was a great tea bread with honey butter, or jam, or made into a decadant french toast.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
As written, this is a good recipe. I can already tell - this will be a five star recipe with a few modifications. I agree with the other reviewers that having more of the "good stuff" mixed into the bread will really kick this up a notch. More herbs and cheese in the bread - I'm thinking about carmelizing the onions next time, and adding that with some roasted garlic and maybe a soft cheese like brie to the bread dough. Mmmm - this is a great base to experiment though!

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was great. I actually forgot to add the oil and lemon and it was still wonderful - and rather healthy, since I used lite coconut milk. I just rough chopped the onions and ginger, scooped out the cooked potato, and pureed the whole finished product in my food processer. YUM.

Pineapple Upside-down Cake Martinis

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
These were mighty yummy. Perhaps my friends and I are getting too old - but they also held quite a kick! I might take advice and "water" them down with some additional juice - cranberry or some other mixer.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
These are, quite simply, amazing. I'm glad I made them to give away, otherwise I'd eat them all myself!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: May 22, 2009
These were a huge hit at my office. I made them as directed with whipped cream cheese frosting (my fav) from this site. I don't even like red velvet normally, and even I enjoyed one of these. I'll be making them again.

Dad's Cookies

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
First of all, listen to the recipe and form the dough into WALNUT sized balls! I used my traditional tablespoon sized cookies and they spread like crazy and ran together. Not a huge problem, but now I have giant cookies. Good thing they're so tasty - I don't think anyone will mind eating a huge one! I made these with dried cranberries. Next time I'll add a little cinnamon or cardamom - but they are great as they are.

Cheddar Pear Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was amazing. I made it with combination of two types of pears and some granny smith apples. Next time, I might even make it as a crumble/crisp because the crust was not even needed!

Grandma Covington's Cheese Apple Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
I was not a huge fan of the cornmeal in this pie crust. It came together really well for me, and I will try it again without the cornmeal.

Papa Drexler's Bavarian Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2009
These are FANTASTIC. And easy to make. And addictive. And therefore, very dangerous! I have made lots of soft pretzel recipes, and this is my favorite yet. Simple, yet tasty. I also made the same recipe into 8 good sized pretzels. One tip - the recipe did not call for a greased pan, so I didn't add any butter or oil to the pan before baking. When I tried to take the hot pretzels off, they stuck. After taking a couple off minus the bottoms, I decided to let them cool ON the pan. this worked much better. I will be making these tasty things again.
