French Baguettes

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
Phenomenal...I have tried many other baguette recipes but this one really is the best in terms of taste, ease and time. I omitted brushing the loaves with the egg mixture, opting instead to brush one lightly with olive oil and leave the other loaf as is. The loaves came out virtually identical. I will definitely be making this again but next time I think I will add 1 t. baking powder and maybe another 1/2 t. salt. This was a huge hit with the family and friends! Thank you for sharing Judy!

Vegetarian Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2005
Delicious! I don't like gravy, but my boyfriend asked if I could try making a vegan gravy for a treat...and he loved it! We served it up in what we call a "Diner Stack:" a vegan sourdough biscuit on top of hash browned potatoes, all smothered with the gravy with vegan sausage stirred in. He LOVED it!!! A few changes I made though: I didn't have sage so I used thyme and I reduced the oil to a little less than 1/4 c. replacing the remaining volume with water or unsweetened soymilk. I will definitely be making this again. VERY simple....

Winter Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
I love quinoa and I loved this recipe. It was a hit at Thanksgiving this year with a huge family that had never had quinoa before! I doubled the pears and used an entire pint-package of kumquats. I also used more like 3 c. watercress and an entire bunch of cilantro because that's what I had. Lastly, I used only 1 T. of the olive oil.

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
I was a little disappointed in this recipe, simply because yams are one of my favorite foods and I felt they really got drowned out by diluting them with the baking potatoes. I used yams and potatoes that I had grown this year so they were quite fresh. Next time, I will reduce the butter, replacing with more milk. I also had to increase the rosemary to 1 1/2 t. but next time I think I'll use fresh rosemary. I liked this dish but my family did not.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
I switched up the recipe a little bit. I wrapped the eggplant in foil after puncturing it all around. I also used fresh squeezed lime juice in place of lemon juice. Lastly, I completely omitted the oil, used more garlic, and added cumin and some olives while processing in a blender. I garnished with cayenne pepper for a spicy bite. It went over fairly well.

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
Wonderful recipe! I have made it with homemade butternut squash puree as well as sweetpotato puree as well and both could easily be passed off as pumpkin! I upped the quantity of puree (no matter what I used) to two cans (30 oz. total) and bumped the sugar down to 1 c. Rather than top with the whipped topping, I thouroughly coated the top with about 2 c. finely chopped pecans (my grampa grows pecans so I have endless access to them). Another favorite recipe that I will be making again and again...

Carmel's Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
This got 50/50 reviews from a family of 15 when I made it. Several people were raving about it, and several people thought it was just "okay"...I thought it was aweful, not because of the taste, but because the amount of fat used in it was unnecessary. I would use MAYBE 1/2 c. butter or margarine next time. Also, I spread the stuffing into a baking dish and baked at 350 until it was firmed up and lightly browned. I will probably not make this again.

Naan

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
This recipe was the best one I've used for naan. My south indian friend even approved! I have made it at least a dozen times in the past two months. I omit the egg and the butter though, and allow the dough to rise for at least an hour and a half. If we are not grilling, I use the broiler on the oven and they still come out amazing. A true favorite recipe!

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
I make cranberry sauce quite often (it is one of my favorite snacks) and this one, by far, takes the cake! I reduced the brown sugar, using only 2/3 c. as I like a less sweet sauce. It got rave reviews at Thanksgiving this year and I will be making it several more times for the holidays to come!

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
I made this cake for my grandfather's 80th birthday...his favorite dessert is german chocolate cake. While I didn't get much of a review from him, everyone else said that it was wonderful (I didn't have any). The only complaint is that it was not chocolatey enough. I will be making this again, although I will be doubling all the chocolate, and using dark chocolate rather than the semisweet and german chocolates listed in the recipe. By the way, I made the recipe using all diabetic-friendly sugar (xylitol) and it still came out wonderfully!

Cinnamon Carrot Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
This recipe was wonderful and a great hit with my co-workers! I had recently bought a juice extractor and had all this carrot pulp from making carrot juice...So I modified the recipe a little: rather than using shredded carrots, I used an equivalent amount of carrot pulp plus 1/4 c. water or milk for each cup of carrot pulp, I used canola oil rather than sunflower seed oil and I halved the oil, replacing half with unsweetened applesauce. I also doubled the cinnamon and added about a tsp. each of nutmeg and allspice plus a quarter tsp. cloves. Lastly, I added 1/2 c. raisins....delicious recipe!

Aloo Matar

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2005
Great recipe...I tend to change things alot though: I only used 2 potatoes, and an entire large bag of frozen peas. Also doubled or even tripled spices. Rather than sugar I used about a tsp. each of cinnamon and cloves, and rather than paprika, I used curry and chili powder to spice it up a bit. To reduce fat, I only used about a tsp. of oil and that worked just fine. Using crused or diced tomatoes rather than puree adds some moisture to the sauce to pour over rice or dip Naan into.
