Pita Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
I can't always find chervil, and use dried parsley instead. These are great with everything, but they are my go-to accompaniment to the hot spinach and artichoke dip recipe on this site. The only modification I make is that I always use fresh minced garlic (lots) and add a dash of salt instead of using garlic salt.

Whole Wheat Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
Great basic recipe, though I did make a few modifications... I took the suggestion of another user and used applesauce instead of oil, and I also used all whole wheat flour instead of half white and half whole wheat. I added in around 1/3 cup of ground flax, as well as cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves (more cinnamon than anything else, but I kind of winged it!) and to compensate for the flax and the amount of whole wheat flour, added around 1/4 cup more almond milk (which I used instead of milk) and 1/4 cup more applesauce. I also added 1/4 cup of honey and cut back the sugar. The result: something that tastes kind of like a honey-whole-wheat muffin with a big of sweet spice. I'm also pretty sure that with some modifications you could make this a vegan recipe, or substitute sucralose for sugar for diabetics. Next time I may add grated apple, or substitute orange juice for milk and add dried cranberries. The possibilities are endless. Again, lovely basic recipe!

Orange Marmalade Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2012
After reading the comments, I doubled the recipe, added orange juice instead of lemon as well as some orange zest and a dash of orange extract, made two square cakes stacked one on top of the other with a thin layer of orange marmalade in between and topped with the simple orange glaze recipe from this website. As most poster have mentioned, it does need a bit of tweaking, but a good basic recipe that can be modified in many ways.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
The only modification I make to this recipe is using fresh minced garlic (LOTS of it) and adding a dash or two of regular salt. I've also used a variety of cheeses, and while I usually stick to the recipe, if all you have is mozzarella, just use 3/4 cup of that and you'll still end up with a great dip. I always, always, ALWAYS serve with corn tortilla chips (for people with gluten allergies) as well as Dawn's pita chip recipe from this site.

Snappy Individual Peach Crisps

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
This may not be a traditional-style peach crisp/crumble/cobbler (people get very antsy trying to categorize dessert types, I've noticed) but it got rave reviews when I took it into the offices where I work. The more "bite" the ginger cookies have, the better... I added extra ginger to the crumbs, which I used my food processor to get really, really fine, and I also added cinnamon to the peaches, because I love cinnamon. I also didn't peel the peaches, because I'm lazy, but there are a ton of nutrients in the skin and I didn't find that it affected the flavour, only the texture, and once it was baked no one really noticed. Delicious!

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
The description is dead on: this is a wonderful cold-weather soup, and it just screams "autumn" to me. I know some people don't like pureed soups, but this one has an amazing texture once it's blended very smoothly. I modified this a bit... I make 99% of my soups in the crockpot because I am a busy student, and since this one is pureed anyway, it doesn't matter how mushy things get. It also allows me to leave out the butter. Instead of garnishing with plain yogurt, I added a can of coconut milk once everything was cooked soft and before I pureed it... that's just personal preference, as I really like coconut and curry together, but it went well with the rest of the ingredients and wasn't too sweet. All in all, this is a great soup, and will definitely make it again!
