Beef Teriyaki

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
This recipe turned out very well with a few changes, and my husband really enjoyed it. I served it along with brown rice prepared according to the recipe for Fried Rice Restaurant Style. I made the following changes: 1) Marinated beef in 1/4c teriyaki sauce, 1tsp minced ginger, and 1tsp minced garlic for about two hours, 2) Added 1/4c diced red onion and a bit of oil when browning the beef, 3) To the sauce, added 1/4c teriyaki sauce, an extra 1/4tsp garlic powder, and 1/2tsp crushed red pepper. I will make this again.

Vegetable Cheese Strudel

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
The first time I made this, I found it to be a little bland. Since then, I have added a generous helping of Italian seasoning and some crushed red pepper when cooking the vegetables, and sometimes I also include some hot Italian sausage. In addition, I now serve it with marinara sauce to which I have added a little cream and crushed red pepper for a kick. It was a big hit at Thanksgiving.

Zucchini Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
This quiche recipe is quite tasty. I would recommend layering the entire top with sliced zucchini. I only created a ring around the outer edge. As a result, the center rose higher than the edge, and I didn't really like the way it looked. Otherwise, I will definitely make this again.

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
This is a very good, filling vegetarian meal. I used baby red potatoes mashed with a little bit of butter, milk, garlic, and salt for the top. I also had to use considerably more vegetable broth for the lentils and barley. I will definitely make this again. For recipe users new to cooking with lentils, note that unless you soak them prior to cooking, they take 45 minutes to 1 hour to to cook.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I used this recipe to make a tofu stir-fry and a chicken stir-fry, but we did not enjoy it at all. The sauce is extremely thick and has a strong peanut butter flavor to it.

Best of Everything Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
These veggie burgers are delicious! Having been a vegetarian for many years, I am fairly picky about my burgers. I would definitely recommend these, and my non-vegetarian husband liked them as well. I added some soup powder to season the rice while it cooked; substituted shallots for the onions; used a full cup of whole wheat bread crumbs; and cooked the burgers with a little canola oil on a skillet.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
This is a good, easy crust. I use it for cheesecakes, and it's always a hit. I've taken to using a full stick of butter, which seems to hold together a bit better.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
My husband really liked this recipe. We sliced the chicken and used it in fajitas. We also followed other reviewers in adding a little bit of chicken broth and fresh cilantro at the end. Next time I will try a splashs of tequila as well.

Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
This sauce was absolutely delicious and very easy to make! I roasted the peppers in advance and refrigerated them, so I was able to make a quick but impressive weekday dinner. I followed the recipe exactly and will do the same in the future.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
This is a very quick and easy fried rice recipe, and I thought it tasted good. I used brown rice that I had refrigerated the day before and frozen peas and carrots for the vegetables. I will definitely make this again.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
My mother-in-law and I just made this, and it came out absolutely delicious! We doubled the ginger and used 1.5 times the other spices, and we are going to top it with a cream cheese frosting. Perfect for the holidays!

Mexican Fiesta Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
This is a very good recipe - looks lovely and tastes good. I am giving 4 stars because I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I had only a 12oz box of pasta and was concerned about the soupy consistency noted by others since I did not have time to chill overnight to set. So I cut the mayo (light), sour cream (light), and salsa (hot) in half but left the spices the same. I also omitted the olives and added fresh cilantro and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Will definitely make again.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This cake is delicious! The unconventional instructions do indeed produce a nice, moist cake. I would note that in my oven it took 1.5 hours to bake, however. Next time, I think I will add a little more banana to the cake and a little less vanilla to the frosting. But overall, a wonderful recipe.

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
