Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
This was wonderful! I replaced the celery with a can of corn, and I also increased the onion. I didn't exactly measure the curry; I just added to taste. The other change was that I used a stick blender to make it a lot smoother. It got rave reviews from everyone who ate it! Cheap, healthy, fast, and delicious. Perfect!

Avocado Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
Delicious. I love sweet avocado desserts--and so easy to make. I changed the recipe by using 1/8 of a cup of splenda granular and 1/4 a teaspoon of vanilla. I also added a pinch of salt. This is great because it is lighter than the condensed milk avocado dessert I usually make.

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
This soup was delicious. I used a good quality salsa, added a tomato, half a sweet onion, and some lime juice. It was fantastic. This is a recipe I will use again and again.

Whipped Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
I cut the recipe by a third and still ended up with plenty. I couldn't imagine using up a whole 3 cups worth! The key is to only use a little bit at a time. My sister says it tastes just like the one we get at our local Lebanese restaurant.

Curried Carrot Soup

Tuna Curry in a Hurry

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
This is one of my go-to recipes. It is fast, cheap, and delicious. I use red instead of green pepper. I use just enough olive oil so that the onions and peppers and garlic don't stick. Finally, I sub Greek-style yogurt for the sour cream, and only put in half as much. Raisins are delicious in this, too!. I also up the amount of curry and add some cayenne to spice it up a bit.

Bean and Tomato Stew with Sage

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I actually thought this was delicious. I cut back on the olive oil and upped the garlic. I also used fresh sage (which I think made a big difference). I subbed butter beans, as well. This recipe hit my requirements for being cheap and easy, as well as reasonably healthy. I will def. make again!

Brazilian Passion Fruit Mousse (Maracuja)

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
Wow, easy and delicious. I also used frozen passionfruit juice and followed the reviewers advice to refrigerate overnight. Mine set without a problem. Perfect make ahead dessert for a tropical themed dinner party. Beware, though--it's rich! Edited to add that it freezes surprisingly well, too!

Lentil Pate

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
This is actually surprisingly delicious. I had no problem cooking up my lentils (although they didn't get very tender, it's true. But I like them better that way) with the 2 cups of broth. The truffle oil is wonderful. This is my first time making lentils and I'm surprised at how much I like it. I would absolutely make this recipe again.

Pumpkin Rolls I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
I added the whole can of pumpkin, and it didn't seem to affect the rising time. Did increase the pumpkin flavor. Lovely rolls, will make again.

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Delicious! So flexible. I was looking for a recipe without mayo (ew), and this is the best one I could find. I omitted all of the sour cream, and added way more garlic than called for to counteract the cream cheese. I also added lemon juice and freshly ground black pepper.

The Best Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
I made this because we had pretty much no food in the house, and I could make this without going grocery shopping. This was surprisingly tasty! I took a reviewer's suggestion and used corn starch instead of flour, and added red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick.

Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
I put this over brown rice instead of on pizza dough because I was too lazy to make my own and didn't have any store bought lying around the house. I subbed herbs de provence for the thyme and fennel, which actually worked out well. I would say this is delicious, but on the dry side.

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
This was delicious, cheap, and easy! I made a few changes by subbing in beef broth (it was all I had) for the chicken and herbs de provence for the dried thyme (ditto). I didn't bother pureeing it because the lentils were cooked until soft. My Dad thought this was too sweet, but both my Mom and I loved it.

Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Very easy and delicious! Makes a ton--cut down on the water but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. My father still asks for it.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
Delicious, cut down on the sugar some just because I prefer things less sweet.

Chocolate Earl Grey Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
These were decent. I liked them, but my parents did not. I thought they were a bit on the dry side and a little too sweet. I did like the earl grey flavor, though! I don't know if I would make them again.

Curried Salmon Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
This was pretty tasty. It was fast and simple. I subbed yogurt for the sour cream, and that was just fine. I think I quadrupled the curry paste, but I didn't keep track. I also added a touch of honey for some sweetness; It could have used some garlic powder and lime juice but I didn't have any. All in all, this was something I would make again.

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
I halved the recipe, and ended up with plenty of cookies. I ommitted the grated chocolate because I'm lazy, and substituted dark chocolate chips in order to cut down on sweetness. Would make again.

Tabbouleh III

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
This was delicious and very easy to make. I will make again. However, I thought it was a bit too salty. I also decreased the olive oil and added more lemon juice.
