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!

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.

Strawberry Cake Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Very easy and fast to prepare. It saved me a trip to the store. I only needed enough to fill an 8" round cake, so I made half the recipe (plus that was all the strawberries I had). The filling is a little too runny to fill the cake without a dam of icing, but it still held up well enough. Was wonderful with chocolate cake.

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.

Creamy Pesto Gnocchi with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
This recipe needs some serious work. I made this because I wanted something new and I had all the ingredients to make this. To be polite it was not tasty at all. My biggest problem is that I did not like the texture combination of the sausage with gnocchi. I find that pesto on its own is quite delicious and adding the cream adding nothing to the recipe except calories and fat. If I were to do it again, I'd eliminate the meat and cream and add a heaping amount of fresh veggies.

Fire Roasted Vegetarian Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
this recipe needs serious work to be anything edible. The vegetables and spices compete with each other too much to make a complimentary dish. back to the drawing board.

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
This is too spicy as it is for us. We prefer the taste of the store bought taco seasonings so I just used the 1 teaspoon each of salt and paprika and 2 teaspoons of chili powder and omitted the cumin. I didn't like the cornmeal texture either - too gritty. This recipe is a good jumping off point to develop my own bean filling recipe though.

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.

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.

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.

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

Egg in a Hole

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Eh, not worth the trouble. Just make an egg over medium and serve toast on the side and you get the same thing. In my book, the only thing that would have made this worth the trouble was if my kids thought it was a fun way to eat an egg and toast.

These are good, but honestly I have a cream scone recipe that is far simpler and more authentic.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I'm always looking for fresh vegetarian or vegan dishes and this one is fabulous. I loved the contrast in crunch from the cucumbers and creamy avacados. The lemon and limes juices were terrifically balanced. DH and I split this for dinner one night- very filling and satisfying.
