Spicy Fried Green Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2005
This recipe was great when I modified it. It's not spicy at all, but that was fine. I had to add a lot more flour to get a thick enough consistency for a batter that would stick. I fried these at 375 degrees in a deep fat fryer. They were delicious! Just add more flour. I also like to salt the tomatoes while they are cooling.

Stuffed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
I enjoyed making this recipe because it contained ingredients that I had on hand and not the traditional cream of mushroom soup that I see so often in pork chop recipes. Ironically, I'm a vegetarian who cooks meat for her husband, so I can't tell you how this tasted, but I know my husband devoured it, and he usually only wants "shake and bake" pork chops. I like to make things with a little more flare. This was simple yet a little more sophisticated than the shake and bake :) I would definitely make this for any carnivorous company. The gravy was absoluetly beautiful! Securing the chops with toothpicks really helped keep the stuffing inside. I used 2 slices of dried bread cubes instead of the crutons, and it turned out perfectly.

Absolutely Delicious Baked Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
I liked the flavors, but not the texture. I didn't like the rutabega and parsnips--I was hoping to find a good recipe for them, but I'm still looking. I only ate the potatoes and yams--had to throw the rest away.

Wow! Super delicious, no need to change anything on this recipe! Fresh peaches add a wonderful flavor to this very moist cake.

Krautkrapfen (Bavarian Kraut Crullers)

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
I loved the taste of these, but the dough was a little tricky. Maybe I didn't make it correctly. It was a little hard on the outside of the roll-ups. I wonder what could make is softer? Basting during cooking? The insides and bottom were delicious and soft like a dumpling. I thought the apple would make it too sweet, but not at all. I used a tarter apple. Also, being a vegetarian, I left out the bacon and bouillon, and I think the recipe was perfect without it. But, for those who eat meat, this would also be good with tiny bits of sausage inside. Maybe some leftover brats would work good. My family was mystified by them, but I'll think I'll make them again. I need to work on the rolling up proceedure to get it a little tighter. I did use less sauerkraut and more apple. I cut the recipe in half and only used 8 oz. kraut. Good stuff and a nice change.

Soft Apple Butter Delights

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
This was a great way to get rid of some apple butter! The batter was very soft, and my cookies were a little flatter than I had hoped, but they tasted great. I only cooked them 8 minutes as 10 was too much, and this reciped yielded 13 dozen for me. I'm not sure I would lable this as nutritious, but certainly a great snack on a fall day. Not so great in the summer--I'll freeze them for some cooler weather.

Best Ever Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
I always, always double this recipe because it is so popular. I also bake it in a stoneware casserole so it stays warm for quite a long time. It's emabarrasingly simple and easy--but we love it!

Broken Thermostat Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
I love this recipe! It's my new favorite! I will make it over and over again. I wouldn't call it "broken thermostat" because it's not too hot, but as the submitter said, it's "mildly spicy." I think I'll add more red pepper flakes next time. Also, I cut this in half and it was perfect. I was wary about the yams--but they were great! I served it over jasmine rice and am thoroughly enjoying it right now!

Applesauce Cake IV

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
I gave this cake 5 stars even though mine didn't turn out the way I expected, which was my own fault--I used Spenda instead of white sugar and the cake did not rise well. The flavor is still excellent, but I have a very dense cake. It is recommended that for cakes to use an 8" pan instead of 9" and add 1/2 c. non-fat dry milk and 1/2 tsp. soda for every cup of Spenda. Wish I would have checked into this before! Also, I left out the raisins, would be better with walnuts I think.

Emily's Famous Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
I make this all the time! This is the best popcorn ever! I don't use the butter, and the spices stick just fine from the oil it was popped in. This is such a better alternative to microwave popcorn! Sometimes I add tumeric as well, and today I just added some chipotle powder for a little kick, but the cumin and nutritional yeast (so creamy) are what make it the greatest for me!

Mandarin Orange Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Finally! I've been looking for a fruit dip that doesn't negate the healthiness of the fruit! This is wonderful! No sugar, no marshmallow creme, no pudding! Perfect! Thanks for sharing! :)

Picnic Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
The recipe would be great without the marshmallows. Mine rose to the top as the recipe said they would, but they burnt to a toasty crisp. Even if they wouldn't have burnt, they let large holes from where they rose--leaving large gaps in the cake. Very ugly. I gave three stars because the cake itself was good--just leave out the marshmallows.

Lentil Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2006
This was a pleasant experience for my first taste of lentil soup. I knew they were good for me but was never brave to try them. I used 1.5 cups veggie broth instead of chicken broth and 6.5 cups of water after reading the reviews. I also used a cup of diced yams since I was all out of potatoes--it was great with the yams! I did kind of combine this recipe with Lentil Soup III by Molly and added cumin instead of cloves (I'm not a fan of cloves) and 1/8 c. of tomato paste. I think I'll try it with cloves to see what it's like next time. Oh, and once the lentils started boiling, I add the rest of the ingredients and didn't mash the yams--the soup cooked in plenty of time--next time I'll used leftover mashed potatoes.

Mango Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
OK, I hate to review something as five stars when I modified it, but the basics of this is great! I think that the apples, mangos, and balsamic vinegar alone is amazing! Then what you choose to add after that is up to you. I used a pinch of kosher salt and that was it--no cinnamon or ginger--and it was absolutely perfect! I substituted walnuts for the cashews, and after toasting, I added them to each serving rather than the salad so they wouldn't get mushy. Yum yum!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
I was very pleased with this recipe, but only after I took into consideration all the other tips. I used a baking stone and sprayed lightly with cooking spray. I also added red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and Emeril's essence to the mix and salted after baking. Using an entire egg, not just the whites, seemed to work fine for me for getting the crumbs to stick. Also, I used a yellow zucchini--very tasty results. Update 9-2-10: I now make this all the time for "fried" green tomatoes in the oven and get requests for it all the time. And I always add chipoltle powder too. Yummy for zucchini, green tomoatoes, and yellow squash!

Pineapple Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
Wow! I'm going to make this all the time! I've never found a better vegetarian enchilada recipe! The straight cheese ones are always too soft and mushy. I added just a little ready-to-serve rice to the mix since I wanted to get rid of it, but the mix would be fine without it! Thank-you so much for this recipe!

Margarita Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
Great! This was very refreshing and easy. I would never had made a recipe like this if I hadn't been searching for a way to use up pretzels without buying a lot of extra ingredients. By the way, once I juiced the limes, I had well over 1/2 cup of juice when combined with the OJ. I'm not sure how much exactly, but probably close to 3/4 cup of orange and lime juices. Use a whisk, and it will eventually all incorporate nicely with the sweetened condensed milk.

Chocolate Wave Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2006
Wonderful! A hit with everyone! The contrasting colors make for an interesting bread. I left out the walnuts and used large chocolate chips. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I would give this one star for taste, but because they are pretty and easy to make, I gave it two. I followed the instructions that others had posted about refrigerating and freezing. This is what they tasted like: super sweet mushy cake. The strawberry/white frosting with white coating did not go over well. No one ate more after their first taste. The German chocolate cake and pecan frosting wasn't as sweet, but still the consistancy of mashed cake with frosting was less than pleasing. They looked so pretty on my plate, and guests oooed and ahhhed over how they *looked* but no one asked for the recipe, and there were a lot of leftovers.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Very good! I took someone's advice and added feta cheese, but only to each individual serving--didn't want it getting mushy in the frige. It also needed cumin and freshly ground black pepper. I've made tabbouleh with couscous before, and it would work great here, but the quinoa is so healthy that it's hard to justify the swap. I think this would be excellent with finely diced fresh jalepeno and cilantro or mint leaves (leave out cucumbers and parsely).
