Spinach Pecan Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
This was easy to make but not extremely flavorful. I love spinach, but if I made this again I would add a good amount of garlic. I used cornbread stuffing mix instead of plain breadcrumbs, but I still would have liked more seasonings.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
I added some carrots to the mix for color. I chopped all of the veggies in the food processor before baking, so that I could feed it to my 2 year old easily. It gave everything a nice uniform texture. I followed other reviewer's advice and put a layer of cheese over the bottom of the crust. I wasn't pleased with the results- the quiche had strata like the layers of the earth. So the bottom was chewy-cheesy. I think the "soggy crust" problem is from people using frozen brocoli instead of fresh. I used fresh so I think I didn't need to do the "cheese protection" layer.

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
These rolls are just "plain". I wouldn't make them for a special occasion. Mine weren't as smooth as the ones in the photo. I think if I made them again I would increase the flour AND the sweetener (sugar, or maybe honey like another reviewer suggested). I actually did eat some with honey on top as an after-dinner snack.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
This is the 3rd beer bread recipe I have tried, and this one is the best so far. Very yummy and hearty/healthy tasting. I did increase the brown sugar to 1/2 cup and used 1 tsp salt and 1tbsp baking powder. Good stuff!

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
I got compliments on this bread. It was very easy. I didn't have self-rising flour, but was able to use all-purpose flour and add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1 1/2 tsp salt. I would like tips on how to make the top of the loaf look smoother and more appealing, though!

Honey Oat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
This recipe was easy to make. I increased the brown sugar to 1 tablespoon. I think if I made it again I would add more honey as well. I also decreased the butter to 1/8 cup. One thing I like about beer bread is that it is low fat! So I didn't want to ruin that with heaps of butter!

Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2005
I used 1/2 tbsp of orange marmalade instead of orange zest, and 1 cup of raspberries instead of 1 1/2 cup cranberries. I used orange juice with bits of pulp and it made the muffins seem very healthy and fruity. They are very nice, light and moist. I will make these again!

Very Berry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2005
These muffins tasted healthy...in my opinion, they are fine for an everyday muffin but nothing impressive that I would serve at a brunch to company. I increased the brown sugar to 1/3 cup, added 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp nutmeg.

Mock Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
This is a wonderful method. It is a good idea to freeze tofu you don't have immediate plans to use, as it can spoil quickly. I love the more meat-like texture of frozen tofu.

Famous Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
I added 1 cup rasins and 2 tsp cinnamon and got rave reviews. People kept asking me how I made the cookies, I was almost embarassed to say how easy they were to make. I sometimes substitute 1 cup of corn oil plus 1/2 tsp salt for the shortening. I just like to do that because it is easier to cream with the sugars by hand rather than with an electric mixer.

Sweet Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
I felt that this recipe was too dry. I have never made sweet potato casserole before but have eaten it many times, so I chose to use this recipe because it had familiar components like the casseroles I am used to eating. Sadly it was too dry. If I made it again I would decrease the flour and maybe even decrease the cooking time.

Corn Souffle

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
I made this for Thanksgiving and for some reason, someone at the table made everyone tell their favorite dish. This was the unanimous winner! My cans of corn were 20 oz each, so I just added some extra flour and milk but used the same number of eggs. I also used half the suggested amount of sugar because it seems like alot! (I am a mother, you know!) Overall it was delicious and very easy.

Vegetarian Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
This gravy is very good and easy to make. I decided to half the amount of salt added because soy sauce is salty in itself. Next time I probably won't use any salt. It was very good with Tofu Turkey and I also enjoyed it on mashed potatoes.

Tofu Turkey I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2005
I was very impressed with the way this turned out. I served it for Thanksgiving to 9 meat eaters and EVERYONE said it tasted like turkey! I couldn't believe it. I have been vegetarian for 10 years, so tasting like turkey wasn't really the goal. I did make some changes: after reading the suggestions in this section, I first boiled the tofu in some vegetarian chicken flavored stock, then processed it in a blender, then pressed it with the weight overnight. I also substituted Bragg's Liquid Aminnos for Tamari and regular boxed stuffing mix for the stuffing; I also left out the rosemary as I didn't have any. I cooked the tofu turkey WITH the foil for about 3 hours, reappling the glaze every 30 minutes or so. I also cooked it on parchment paper instead of greasing the pan, so it didn't burn. It was really good: it looked and tasted like turkey! I also recommend the vegetarian gravy to serve with this (or mashed potatoes!)
