Very easy to prepare. Delicious. A good recipe to use for weeknight dinners.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
easy to prepare and delicious. I toasted the cashews and steamed the asparagus in advance. I used only 1 full can of vegetable broth and substitued white wine for the remainder.

Roasted Winter Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
I rarely give out 5 stars for anything, but this one earned them! My mother made this recipe last year and loved it. She suggested I try it. I only tried a rutabaga once before and wasn't a huge fan, but in this recipe you'd never know it wasn't a potato. Parboiling in advance makes this recipe super simple. Its easy to divide too, I made this for just my husband and I, so we didn't need 15 lbs of veggies. I used just 8 oz of each vegetable and estimated the rest of the ingredients. It turned out perfect. I will be making this again and again. Thanks for sharing!

Lentil Chili II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
We liked this recipe. I followed the recipe's spice amounts and I thought, although it was mild, still had great flavor. and it wasn't too spicy for my toddlers to eat. Eliminate the butter and you have a very good, easy vegan meal. Makes tons. My 6.5 Qt Le Creuset was barely big enough to contain it all. Oh, we did add a can of kidney beans (we like beans). Will make it again

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
We liked this recipe, because it was change from what we normally eat for dinner. But I think its lacking something. Its not very "saucy"- there's nothing holding the ingredients together (like in a pot pie). I didn't like that I had to pan fry everything in advance. I'm a busy mom, and don't want to stand at the stovetop for an hour putting a meal together. I might make it again, but probably pretty infrequently.

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
I liked this. I didn't think it was a standout, but a decent sidedish to a meal.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
We really liked this. I made it vegan by cooking 1 cup of lentils in place of the beef. Then I saved the green onions and water chestnuts for a topping and added bean sprouts and shredded cabbage for topping options as well. Drizzle a little chili sauce and it makes an excellent meal. Keeps well as a leftover. Thanks for sharing.

Quinoa Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
We liked it. I followed the suggestions to use almond milk and the results were good- it had a presentation almost like rice pudding. I left out the lemon juice, like others suggested. I'd make it again.

Fruit Pizza

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
VERY sweet. But it was super easy. I prefer less sugar in the foods I give to my kids, so I may try the refrigerated croissant dough as a crust instead of the sugar cookie.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
These were good. I ran the mushroom stems through the mini-chopper first, then combined the whole filling using the mini-chop. Easy to prepare and baked up well.

Beet Salad with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
A very good salad for those of us who don't care for beets. I always thought beets tasted like dirt, but the candied walnuts and sweet dressing mask the beet flavor. I thought this was very good, even with crumbled feta, which was all I had. But I believe the smooth goat cheese is an even better choice. Thanks for sharing.

Fresh Rhubarb Pie

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
Excellent! I would add more rhubarb next time (probably adjust the sugar as well). It cooks down and we like thick pies. But this may be our Memorial tradition in our house.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I gave this only 3 stars because it tasted too much like a pie you would find in a diner. We wanted something with more of a sophisticated coconut flavor. I thought the coconut flavor was overpowering. Also, mine didn't set, but that could have been my fault.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
This was delicious and very easy. I'm not a huge fan of peanut butter flavored dishes, so I only used 1 T peanut butter and it was great. Oh, and I used cabbage instead of romaine.

Yia Yia's Tzatziki Sauce

Just delicious. And very simple. I made Peppy's Pita Bread to go with this - we loved it.

Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
We liked the filling. I mixed the bacon in with the cheese and left the jalapenos whole, put them on the BBQ grill. But in my opinion, the peppers' flavor over powered the filling. Next time, I think I will parboil the peppers as suggested by another reviewer to reduce their heat.

Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Excellent. I love this fresh take on the classic. Fresh, unprocessed, healthy, natural. Can't wait to make it again. Next time I'll season it with salt and pepper to enhance the flavor. Otherwise, it's perfect.
