Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
A perfect recipe: I had everything on hand so for me it is easy, delicious, and quicker than running to the store for instant pudding! Perfect homemade taste.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
"Outstanding" is what my husband said about these, and I agree! Thanks for a great and healthy recipe. I used corn tortillas instead of taco shells, and added minced cilantro and avocado to the toppings.

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
OMG so good! I was looking for a veggie shepherds pie recipe that tasted like my mom's (meat) version, and this is pretty close! I added in 1 can of creamed corn and 1 can whole corn in between the lentils and mashed potatoes to make it "New England Style." I fried up the onion first, then added the broth and lentils and barley, then added the chopped carrot in later. Also added in a bay leaf, some sage, and some thyme. So good, thanks!

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
Very good recipe, could definitely use kosher salt sprinkled on top or more salt in the recipe, I cut the olive oil in half and used 2 cups of bread flour and 1 cup of whole wheat, still very good. Be sure to grease the pan before baking! This is one I will be making again and again for sure

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Good, but needs way less salt, 1/4 t. is plenty (or just a sprinkle) I used plain yogurt instead of buttermilk, came out delicious!

I have made this pie several times, sometimes I add in a pinch of allspice and powdered ginger for extra flavor -- perfect! Thanks for the great recipe.

Russian Black Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
I have never been in love with a bread before but I've fallen hard for this one. So good... made exactly as directed, needed a bit more flour to get a good consistency. AWESOME RECIPE THANKS.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
Very good recipe! I've made it several times now, both as written (so good!) and lower fat by cutting the mozzarella in 1/2 and using cottage cheese instead of ricotta, I also added tons of extra veggies to the sauce -- it was very good! This is my go-to veggie lasagne recipe from now on, thanks.

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie I

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Promising recipe but definitely on the bland side. I added in more veggies -- celery and a red bell pepper -- and some indian spices, nutritional yeast, and veggie bullion with the milk. It needed even more, maybe some thyme or sage to give it more of a savory flavor? Also I think the kasha was unnecessary and I might just use all bulguhr in the future.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
I made this recipe as stated, I had smaller plums and used about 2 cups sliced worth, no berries. It was very good! Like many others some of the sauce leaked out of the springform, I might try this recipe in a regular cake pan next to try and keep the sauce inside. Easily adaptable to almost any fruit you have on hand and infinitely variable by adding nuts/other flavors (such as lemon). Thanks!

Sloppy Sams

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Very good recipe, made as directed except I didn't have celery seed and I only used 1 T. of molasses. I served it with cole slaw on top and it was delicious. the only reason I give it four stars is because the taste was more like bbq and less like sloppy joes. But I will definitely make it again, thanks!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
So good, much better than another low-fat banana muffin recipe I have used in the past. I will use this recipe from now on. I put in 2 bananas and yogurt instead of buttermilk because that is what I had, still great tasting!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I used a combo of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice for the spices, and just used a sprinkle of water on the apples. Other than that as written, awesome recipe -- best apple crisp I ever made, thanks!

Roasted Beet, Peach and Goat Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
Very delicious, I just used what I had on hand: 3 small beets, 1 large and perfectly ripe peach, walnuts and green onions. For the dressing I used 2 T. oil and 1.5 T. balsamic vinegar, plus salt and pepper. It was very delicious, the sweet beet and sweeter peach with the sour snap of balsmaic vinegaraette ad punch of onion is perfect. With goat cheese it would have been better (I woudl have lightened up on the vinegar in that case), unfortunately I didn't have any on hand. I piled the salad on some fresh greens, and loved every bite. Thanks for the great recipe.

Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
Okay, when I was mixing these up the smell was questionable and they were super sloppy (of course I didn't wait the one hour for refridgeration) to put together. I DRENCHED them in flour just to get them to form into patties. I thought for sure they would disintegrate on the grill, but they didn't. They actually grilled up into some of the best veggie burgers I have ever made, with good (if a bit light) flavor, a crusty outside and soft middle. Even my super-picky veggie bf liked them and said I should make them again! What a surprise success!

Risotto with Asparagus

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
Good but I've had more flavorful risottos. Added mushrooms for flavor, probably could have used some thyme as well. Also I tried to cook the asparagus in the risotto at the end which didn't work so great. Next time I'll cook the asparagus ahead of time like the recipe states.

Bruce's Honey Sesame Bread

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
Very delicious, easy. One of the best bread machine breads I have ever made. It did rise too much and then sink way down in the middle, maybe needed a bit more flour?
