Gazpacho

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
OK, I made the mistake of scaling this recipe down for 1 person. And made it again the next day! Left out the bell pepper, but I always do, and it was fabulous! Even the leftover leftovers! They're all gone now, so I have to make it again. (Thank goodness I used this recipe to try out my new food processor!) Loved it! Perfect for Phoenix in July.

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
Loved this one! I used Orowheat's health nut bread because it's the only kind I buy. Used herbed cream cheese, vinaigrette instead of oil and vinegar, and red onion instead of pepperoncini. By the end of the week, I'm making it from memory! Thanks a bunch for sharing!

Easy Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
I really can't rate this recipe since I really didn't MAKE this recipe. I don't like artichokes, so substituted cucumbers. Can't eat peppers, so substituted halved cherry tomatoes. Used whole wheat rotelli, fresh broccoli, and freshly grated Parmesan, then topped the whole thing off with black olives and the bottom of the bottle of Italian dressing. Yes, it was quick, and easy, and filling, but it WAS bland. I'd have to play with seasonings beyond salt and pepper to go with the Italian dressingnext time. But it LOOKED good on the plate!

Beetroot Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
Maybe it was scaling the recipe, but that shouldn't have an effect on the final taste. I found the beets too sweet for a hummus-y use. Or maybe it was the seasonings, traditional hummus flavors that didn't match well with the sweet beets, in my opinion. I'll play with the leftovers - there are certainly enough of them!

Cottage Cheese Perogies

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
These TASTED good, but turned into soup in the boiling water. I fried the rest in olive oil and they disappeared in nothing flat. Maybe it was the whole wheat flour, but the ants made sure I ran out of white. But since they tasted so fine, I'll play with the next batch. Thanks for freeing me from the freezer case!

Mini Frittatas

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
This was excellent! I scaled the recipe for 1, and had to use fresh spinach since I didn't have any frozen (big difference!). I also (since I scaled it) baked it in a single-serving Corning dish instead of muffin tins. Other than that, followed the recipe (I usually do the first time) and loved it. In fact, I've made it twice this week so far! Thanks for the recipe.

Instant Vegetable Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2005
Not quite instant, not quite patties, but really good, relatively quick, and I decided they fit my diet. They're acceptably edible at room temperature, didn't try them cold. Thenks for the ideas!

Gorgonzola and Pesto Stuffed Olives

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
This was VERY tasty! OK, I changed it just a little ... but not really. I used BOTH gorgonzola and bleu cheese, BOTH basil and tomato pesto, and picked the pimentos out of green olives so I could stuff BOTH black and green olives. I also spent what seemed like hours squeezing the cheese mixture into all those olives, because I made enough for a feast my medieval group put on (35 or so people) the first time. The best part - or maybe it was the worst - was that I didn't get to bring any home! Worth the work, in any case. Just be careful not to put a fingernail through the ziplock bag while stuffing!

Potato Medley

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
No offense, but since when does "no meat" translate into a fast? This (or something very similar) has been a staple in my kitchen for over 15 years when I'm looking for a quick, simple, throw-together meal that's not too spicy. Not every dish needs to be served with a fire extinguisher! Obviously, vegetables can be added or substituted according to what's on hand or in season, and seasonings can be added according to your taste, which is what cooking is all about. I don't think I've EVER slavishly followed a recipe in over 30 years.
