Herbed Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I used purple potatoes and shallots in place of white potatoes and an onion (had those in my CSA box this week). Made this vegan by using soy margarine and almond milk and added a small bag of frozen corn and chopped veggie bacon. Very tasty, although a little thick for the first serving. Thinned out nicely with a little bit of water. It took me a while to chop the potatoes and shallots so I would probably not make this for a weekday dinner again. Taste was really lovely – the herbs were just pronounced enough (although I did have to add more salt and pepper to the roux). Looking forward to having it again for lunch tomorrow!

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Really yummy. I may have oversalted it a little, but it's still very tasty. I used kale and red chard (had both in my CSA box this week) and a few red potatoes diced. Added a can of fire-roasted tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes. Also added a healthy dash of lemon pepper shortly before serving.

Hot Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
I made several modifications to this recipe and my husband loved it. I enjoyed it, but he literally scraped the bowl down! Used neufchatel instead of cream cheese, added chopped garlic, red pepper flakes and hot sauce to that mixture, then thinned it with a little non fat plain yogurt. I also used more of each spice because we like a lot of flavor. I subbed red bell pepper for green and used vegetarian pepperoni instead of the real thing – saves lots of calories and cholesterol, in addition to the animal! Finally, I baked it for 20 minutes at 370 instead of microwaving. We used yellow corn tortilla chips but I think next time I'll use crusty bread.

Shredded Potato Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
Very nice for a Sunday morning brunch. I cooked the heck out the potatoes, as suggested by other reviewers, but they still ended up tasting more like mashed potatoes on the bottom. It didn't matter though, because everyone agreed that the flavor was lovely. I used some shredded smoked gouda and scallions in this quiche as well.

The flavor was wonderful, however I didn't think it looked all that pretty.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
Delish! I've made this recipe several times now and the two loaves don't last longer than a few days in our house.

Rae's Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
Great recipe! I varied it a bit based on what I had in the pantry. Started by sauteeing garlic, onion, yellow bell pepper, a jalepeno, one small habanero, and some baby carrots until softish. Then I added the spices and let those soak into the veggies for a minute or so. I omitted the tomato sauce, but doubled the diced tomatoes. Used Bass as the beer and it smelled wonderful as the alcohol was cooking off. Chili was wonderfully spicy and I served it with a dollop of fat free plain yogurt. Can't wait to eat more tomorrow!

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
I love this recipe and have made (and frozen) it several times. I use vegetarian chicken stock for a little more flavor and sauté up fresh bell peppers (usually 2 reds and one orange) along with onions, instead of using the frozen stir fry mix. I always top with chopped avocado, fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime. It freezes so well and the flavor is even better reheated.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Lovely. I actually made these last night but didn't bake until this morning. Added about 1.5 cloves of garlic, along with salt and pepper. The only thing I would change is to saute the green onions and garlic before adding the spinach. Loved the fact that there wasn't a crust!

Kerry's French Toast

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
Really wonderful Mother's Day treat. I halved the brown sugar and used powdered ginger in place of cinnamon (I had run out of cinnamon somehow). Also used nice Challah bread from the bakery for these.

Oatmeal Cookies Light

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2004
After reading the other two reviews, I made a couple of changes. I added a little more flour than the recipe called for, threw in some semi-sweet chocolate chips and baked the cookies for 10 minutes. They were a wonderful soft on the inside, crispy on the outside consistency. Will definitely make again.

Pumpkin Bread II

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2004
Wonderful recipe! I cut the sugar to 2 cups and used one cup of white, one cup of brown sugar. Also added ground ginger and ground clove for extra zing. Fantastic!

Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2003
Wonderful frosting! I added a pinch of nutmeg (frosting a gingerbread cake) and it was delicious and easy!

Artichoke Bites II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2002
Everyone loved these at Thanksgiving. Making them again, I'd double the artichokes and half the cheese – I thought they were a little greasy and not artichoke-y enough. But they're a great base.

Creamy Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2002
I was really disappointed with this soup, unfortunately. The tofu, which I normally love, did add a nice creaminess to the soup, but I found the overall texture really unappealing -- not quite thick, not really thin. My corn was super-sweet which turned the soup into a sweet sludge. I like the theory of this soup though, and will probably try the tofu as cream idea again soon.

Tex-Mex Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2002
I halved the cream cheese and doubled the corn and loved it! I've passed the recipe onto many people recently.

Creamy Italian White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2002
I was really happy with the flavor of this soup (substituted fake chicken stock as we're all veggies), but the texture was strange. I couldn't get my handy immersion blender to blend up the bean skin. So I finally had to strain the soup through a colander, which resulted in a wonderful smooth soup. Topped with mozzerella as we were out of parmesan. Crowd pleaser.
