California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Absolutely delicious! A great recipe! I don't have a grill, so sauteed my veggies and put the bread under the broiler after spreading mayo and feta to toast the bread and melt the cheese. I will try to broil my veggies next time too...as some have done! With other sanwiche recipes like this, I have sauteed carrots and mushrooms and think they'd also make excellent additions or variations for this recipe. I loved the lemon-garlic spread and would like to try it on other sandwiches. We did serve ours open face too with a few optional herbs like chili pepper flakes, dill or a veggie friendly mix of herbs by a certain Mrs. D! I sprinkled mine with dill, but would like to try adding it to the mayo mix next time. I bet these would be out of this world if actually cooked over a grill! I'll be sharing this recipe and make it again and again!

Clinton's Special Vegetarian Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Excellent recipe! I've made this a few times now! Though the first time, I didn't blind bake the crust properly...not knowing exactly what that meant! But now I know to add dried beans to keep the pastry in place while baking! My vegetarian boyfriend was very happy with this! He thought it was unusually light for a quiche and I agree! I even made this for Thanksgiving for him to go along with my Roasted Turkey Breast! It's something I'd make only on weekends or special days...definitely not a busy working mom/weeknight kind of recipe...but overall very, very good recipe!

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Loved this recipe! It was simple and easy to prep and overall a fast and delicious meal, especially for a week night! Substituted vegetable broth for the chicken broth. Yes...a hearty, healthy and delicious recipe!

Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
Really good recipe...didn't look very promising in the pot as it cooked though! My vegetarian boyfriend was craving chili and he was very pleased! Serve with cornbread or jalapeno bread...very good!

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
I too thought...after the fact, that the broccoli should have been blanched at least. I have a vegetarian boyfriend so couldn't add the bacon and didn't have any vegetarain version of it on hand either! The red onion was way too strong and the ingredients didn't blend well together; because it wasn't cohesive, we were left with the mix of seeds, onions and raisins at the bottom of our bowls. I also did not care for the dressing! I've had a similar broccoli salad with onions, raisins, seeds and cheddar cheese with the same type of dressing - minus the pasta, so I was really hoping for something good and a little more substantial. I won't be making this again!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I was really excited to try this because of all the great reviews and wanting to try a different grain in my diet. I let my boyfriend make dinner one night and gave him this recipe and not knowing the difference he used parsley instead of cilantro and couldn't find the cumin and used some "other" spices. As suggested we used only one can of black beans. Overall, even if he had used the right ingredients I didn't care for this dish. We salvaged it by sprinkling a little monterrey jack and some bottled hot sauce (green and red) we had on hand and wrapped them in warmed corn tortillas. Still I doubt I will try to make this one again. Even though I love them...I can't imagine that cumin and cilantro making enough of a difference. Soooo disapointed!
