BBQ Feta and Hot Banana Pepper Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
I was surprised that this recipe had such a lack luster response!!! It is a great basis to go from when making this type of turkey burgers! After reading the review, I decided to slightly modify the recipe: I used tomato/basil feta cheese, used sweet and spicy banana peppers chopped, chopped onion, garlic powder, extra basil, and cracked peppercorns (ground). I couldn't put these down! I only made two small patties (i only had a small amount of ground turkey), and I wish I had more because I would have eaten them all!

Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
Looking at this recipe, I thought it was a really good basis for a stuffed eggplant. I did however change a lot--I used Hot Italian Turkey Sausage (2) and cooked it in about 5 tbsp garlic (since I love garlic). I only used about 1.5 tbsp of olive oil total (I didn't understand why they would originally use that much!) When I added the chopped eggplant, I also add very fine chopped mushrooms (~1.5 cups), and diced sweet onion (half an onion). I didn't have any wine on hand so I put in just a tiny bit of water, but found that with all those veggies in the pot, there was plenty of liquid. I pretty much kept the spices the same, but threw in a bunch of my favorites (I randomly grabbed stuff). I also added about 3/4 cup grated sharp white chedder cheese instead, and only added about a cup or so of bread crumbs (enough were there was no liquid and the mixture was smooth--I am not a fan of a lot of bready mixtures). I stuffed the eggplants, and baked them for just under 30 min. I thought they were great, huge portions (I've had left overs for a few days), and are great with a green salad or as an appetizer. One thing I will do next time is add more onion, and reserve some of the stuffing mixture and possibly make patties or something with it so there isn't so much stuffing in the eggplants themselves.

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
The first time I made this pie, I felt like something was lacking with the top part, it didn't taste right, and I cooked it too long and the bottom crust was a little dry. The second time I made it, I used two (8 oz)cream cheeses instead of one, and checked it after 25 minutes, and boy did that make all the difference!! Even my stepfather, who absolutely hates sweets, had two huge pieces!!

Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
This was a very good recipe. I did follow some of the previous viewers suggestions and added garlic on the crust, balsamic vinegar and asparagus to the roasting vegetables, used feta cheese, and cooked the crust slightly before adding the vegetables. It was very good, but I should have added more vinegar, and I found that the vegetables did not stick to the crust. Next time I will cook the crust and vegetables together to see if they adhere better to each other. Thanks for the recipe.

Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2007
After reading the reviews, I also reduced the sugar to just under 3/4 cup brown sugar, added more spices, and chopped walnuts. I also substituted over half of the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. It turned out great, and next time I will only use whole wheat flour and more pumpkin and applesauce. I have shared this recipe with a lot of vegan and nonvegan friends, and it is the only one that we make!

Roasted Chicken with Risotto and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
This recipe has a lot of great flavors in it, but I actually had to change some things. The grocery store didn't have any risotto, so instead I used orzo and cooked that in the chicken broth. I also added mushrooms in with the onions; and actually sauteed them at the very end and added the balsamic to that. Since I didn't cook the risotto, I added the chicken (which were 3 breasts cooked in the oven with poultry seasoning)to the pan with onions and mushrooms, and mixed well with the butter. I served it with a cesaer side salad, and it turned out great! My boyfriend liked the recipe a lot, especially the onions and mushrooms and has asked me to sautee them in balsamic vinegar all the time!!

Vegetable and Feta Latkes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
These are excellent!! I always add a little more feta and potatoes to the recipe, and I always seem to be out of parsley when I make them. Every time I make these, I get at least 5 people asking for the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
