Chicken Soup With Black Beans and Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This was really good, but I made quite a few changes: I used 1/2 the liquid, used canned corn instead, and added cooked chicken torn in bits. Skipped the cilantro & lime.

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
This was good and not too hard to make, but it was just okay. The sauce was better with a bit more peanut butter. I didn't have peanut oil, so I used sesame oil to still give it that nutty flavor. Overall, the marinade for the chicken just didn't go with the peanut sauce. My boyfriend hated it, but thought it was okay and would give it a 4. I feel like if I could still use the peanut sauce, but I wouldn't use the marinade again.

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
Yum! My mom is from Burma and while this was really good, it's not Burmese, as Michelle says. I added too much water as I was afraid that it would be too hot-- big mistake. Barely cover the chicken with water. Also, my red curry paste wasn't very hot at all, so I added almost twice the amount. I used soy instead of fish sauce (I know it's not really an acceptable substitute, but I didn't have any!) and skipped the cilantro because the boyfriend doesn't care for it. Served this over coconut rice.. delicious! A note about the shallot garnish: I use a regular yellow onion and just slice it really thin. My mother uses much more oil so that she can store the fried onions on the countertop (in oil) and use it as garnish whenever she pleases. Although, I changed quite a bit, I have no doubt the recipe would be good as written.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Followed the recipe exactly except I used butter instead of margarine (I don't buy it) and since margarine's water content is a little bit higher, I compensated by adding just a few drops more of buttermilk. The dough was a little crumbly, then again, maybe only compared to yeast bread. I shaped it into a round and flattened it per other reviewers so that the middle would set, but even baking it longer didn't do an good--the middle was doughy. The crust had a good flavor so I may attempt it next year, but I'll definitely flatten it much, much more--maybe about 2 inches high?

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
These were amazing! Subtle pumpkin flavor and the spices were not overwhelming. I followed another reviewer's suggestion to let the batter sit for a few minutes to allow the baking soda to react. The texture of these pancakes were perfect! These were so good, I ate them plain! My boyfriend topped them with maple syrup & loved them too. I will be doubling the recipe and making this for family this week. Thanks!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
Yum! I made a few changes though because I think the original recipe would have been too bland. I sauteed half an onion and 2 cloves of garlic, then added that to to the food processor. Also, I reduced the broth to 1 cup because more would be too watery. With the changes, this was pretty tasty and healthy (well, minus the large dollop of sour cream on top--which by the way, makes this EVEN better!).

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
This is amazing! I forgot to put in the second 1/3 cup of honey and this still turned out SO GOOD! I'll definitely keep making this and I think I'll stick with the reduced honey. When they cool, I'll freeze one to see how well it holds up. Also, I may try increasing the amount of WW flour just to see how it tastes. Thank you!!!

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
This was pretty good, but it could just be because I'm really hungry? I used 1 tsp. of cinnamon in place of the cinnamon sticks. I didn't find this to be bland like others did, so like another reviewer suggested, maybe your spices are just really old. The cayenne added a nice kick. I used 1 small onion, 2 would be too many. I found that even though I cooked this a little longer than the recipe indicated, I still had crunchy bits. I think I'll throw in the ginger with the onion to make sure it gets cooked and then I'll let the whole thing simmer covered for 20 minutes or so to soften it. Also, I liked another reviewer's suggestion to mash up some of the beans to add thickness. Overall, good and would make again.

Angel Hair with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I felt like there wasn't much but pasta! So I added more of everything. I also cooked the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and a few sauteed mushrooms before adding it to the pasta. I only had regular feta so I compensated by adding some fresh basil. I had a really hard time mixing this up. Overall, yum!

Mango Lassi II

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I used this recipe more like a list of ingredients. I used much less sugar just because my mangoes were really ripe. Delicious! Making again tomorrow =)

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This is amazing! By the way 2 butternut squashes equals around 12 cups (oops!) so I had to double the recipe, however, I kept the same amount of cream cheese (2 pkgs). I baked the squash at 375F for 45 minutes, next time I'll bake it a little less because they were a pain in the butt to peel! Also, I used homemade chicken stock and butter. However, this was SO much work because I didn't have an immersion blender.. I had to throw it in the food processor in batches and it got really, really messy. So beware. Other than that, this is definitely a keeper and I'll definitely make it for company some time.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
Followed another reviewer's suggestion to throw in the root veggies (potatoes & sweet potatoes) first, then others (I used zucchini, red bell pepper, and mushrooms). Also, didn't have an fresh herbs and oregano happened to be sitting out so I added that. Yummy and easy!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
I was really torn between the drop-biscuit type of cobbler or the lattice top, but I'm soo glad I went with this one. I only used 6 peaches and had plenty of filling. I made 1.5 the amount of topping because that's my favorite part, but that's just personal preference, the amount stated in the recipe would have been just fine. I threw in a bit more cornstarch only because my peaches weren't all ripe. This turned out perfect! My grandpa who's from the South raved about this! However, I do have to add that peeling the peaches were the biggest pain in the butt! Boiling them and tossing them in iced water only worked for the really ripe peaches, I'd suggest a vegetable peeler. Also, I think canned sliced peaches would work just fine--I doubt many could tell the difference. Anyhow, absolutely delicious! Thank you!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
Delicious! The recipe is so versatile, I made a few modifications and it still turned out very moist. Like many other reviewers, I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and applesauce in place of 1/2 the oil. Also, I reduced the sugar to 2 cups, using half white sugar and half brown. The recipe is great as is, but can be made healthier without sacrificing taste!

Wacky Cake VIII

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
Delicious! Didn't have eggs or milk, but I was craving something chocolate. I really cannot believe how yummy this cake is! I used white vinegar because it's all I had. This is definitely a keeper! Btw, it's identical to the Vegan Chocolate cake on this website. Thanks!

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Yummy and simple, however, fried rice is best made with cold day old rice so that it doesn't clump together. Sometimes I add leftover cooked chicken or chinese sausage. Thanks!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
Delicious! I used long-grain rice and followed the recipe exactly. Even though I used fat-free, the rice pudding came out super creamy! As another user suggested, I think I'll try Calrose rice next. Thanks for this simple and delicious recipe! Will make again and again.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
Brought these to a party and they were a hit! Took advice of others and increased flour 1/2 cup and increased baking soda to 1 tsp.--I don't think the cookies would have turned out otherwise.

I upped the cocoa powder to 1 cup as suggested by other reviewers and that's the only change I made--delicious! Yum, yum, yum! This was perfect! Not too sweet, moist, and super easy! I will definitely make this over and over again. Thank you!
