Creamy White Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Quick and dirty sauce; minimal ingredients needed. I added basil, oregano and fresh garlic slivers to add more taste. I also topped the pasta w/ sauteed basil & lemon chicken breast.

Chocolate Decadence Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2005
DO NOT LET THE EGGS GET SCRAMBLED. Further clarity as far as instructions goes would be nice. I'll try this one again and it'll probably come out brilliantly.

Sesame Udon Noodles

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
This is an excellent dish! It's just tangy enough, and the sesame seeds balance out the tang of garlic and ginger. I added extra toasted sesame seeds. :D Make sure you don't have too much sauce in proportion to the noodles.

Mango Lassi II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Delicious! That's a good mango lassi. The sugar was just right (but I'm a sweet tooth, hehe) I *must* try it with strawberries.

Seasonal Crudites with Hummus and Baba Ganoush

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
I only made the baba ganoush, and it was DEEEELICIOUS! Not to mention rather easy to make. I can't imagine the hummus being any more difficult to prepare (or eat for that matter).

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
This is a very lightly flavored soup; although this bothered me at first, I appreciated this (more authentic?) lighter Mediterranean flavor. Great w/ a side of toasted crusty bread and dipping oil!

Sweet Rice and Mango

Reviewed: May 7, 2006
I mixed the sugar in with the water, and also substituted some of the water with coconut milk. Unfortunately the mixture came out too watery. I've made great coconut rice with a similar recipe, so I must be doing something wrong somewhere.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I love this granola because it's so easily customizable, makes a TON of granola and comes out crunchy where other recipes are more soft/soggy. Make sure you know how much you're making when you start - it surprised me the first time!

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
This is delicious! i HATE bananas, but now i've found a way to enjoy them. :) I used skim milk and added about 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground up oatmeal (I don't like that by itself either). Thanks for helping me be a little more healthy! In the future, for added decadence, I would add chocolate syrup as well.

White Sauce

Reviewed: May 13, 2006
This is a really great and easy recipe that uses everyday ingredients. You can also use this as a quick base sauce for other pasta recipes like carbonara (add bacon, pimentos, onion) or al fredo sauce (add cheese). White wine is also quite good in this sauce. It is a little bland though.

Soba with Toasted Sesame Seed Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
This is a nice, LIGHT dish, which is typical of many asian noodle dishes - especially cold ones. Yum yum! I made this dish two days in a row! The second time I substituted the balsamic vinegar for rice wine vinegar, and the result was an even lighter taste. Although both are good, I think I'll stick to the balsamic. :) Thank you for sharing!

Cream Cheese Tart Shells

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
these were delicious!!! i used with the simple quiche recipe and it came out really well! thank you! however, these only seem to work well in 'mini' form - i tried to use this for a 9" pie and had a very difficult time laying it down as it wasn't pliable enough.

Orange Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
I think I need to find a better-tasting concentrate; it was a little chalky & artificial tasting. Don't skimp on the orange juice.

Hearty Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Admittedly I leave out a lot of stuff, but it's still great. Adding the rice is a must!

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
I followed this recipe exactly and it came out perfectly! With the butter (I used 11 T), I made sure it was really soft, and ended up using my hands to mush and gush the batter to make sure that EVERYTHING was covered in the mixture. This is a healthier way to get my chocolate fix - I'll never go hungry at work again! Thank you! (I think next time I'll add some coconute shreds too, mmm!)

Lemon Glazed Poppy Seed Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I expected the muffins to be lemony and sweet. This was not the case. Also, the glaze was too thick and I had to add lots of lemon juice.

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
this recipe is wonderful! not too spicy, and really moist. :) i used fresh pumpkin instead of canned; i cut the pumpkin up, de-seeded, steamed and then blended it up. i managed to bake this in a toaster oven, so no excuses about it being to difficult! Thanks much for adding in the celcius baking temperature as well.
