Mama's Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
This is great on salad greens. However, my favorite thing to do with this is to use it as a dip for baby carrots instead! Yum!!!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2007
Oh my goodness---I don't think there is a word that could do the justice of describing just how delicious this dish is! I never thought I'd live to taste something so healthy and tasty at once. It is simply the best! I made the recipe as is. The two cans of beans called for are perfect. I LOVE this dish!!!! And it's too good to just be a side dish so I like it as my main dish. It's too easy to make yet delicious and therefore, I will make it often and also bring it to the next potluck I attend. I intend to also make it a regular item around the house now since it's so good in every way possible for you!!! A million thanks to the person who submitted this recipe!!! This is my second time making quinoa (my first didn't turn out too well because it was tasteless) and this recipe has got me hooked on this power grain probably for life now! Thank you!

Fresh Pear Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2007
I used apples because I needed to get rid of some and the cake was delicious! It's like a spice cake with fruit chuncks in it---yummy! I drizzled some microwaved store-bought cream cheese frosting onto the cake and it was very nice looking. The cream cheese frosting complimented the cake very well. Thanks for an easy and scrumptuous recipe!

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
To die for!!! My new favorite cake of all time! I swear that I can eat this cake whole by myself (there's actually some truth to that---I ate almost one all by myself ^-^ )! So addicting too---my co-workers fought over it when I brought some to the office! I'm sorry but I admit that I did change/add some special ingredients to it but I'm sure the cake would've been great as is. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your recipe with us!!! I'm afraid of gaining 100 lbs from this cake alone!

Pumpkin Pie Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Really good! I made mine using the pumpkin pie filling like others suggested and it turned out great, but when I had a small piece without whipped cream on it I thought it wasn't sweet enough and needed more sugar (must've been the pumpkin pie filling I used and not the recipe itself) but when I ate a small piece with cool whip on top it was sinfully delicious---just so scrumptious! We like cool whip with pumpkin pie anything anyway so it's all goooooood :) I made one and brought it to work and my co-workers raved about it!!! I'm making one tonight for dessert after Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow!

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
This is sooo delicious and hearty!! It really hit the spot this cold winter night! I doubled the recipe and used red cabbage because that was what I had and I followed the recipe, for the most part, but I didn't follow it strictly because this recipe is great for personalizing. I used everything the recipe called for and added canned beans for fiber and protein and I just threw in what ever spices I felt like the soup needed from my spice cabinet (i.e. garlic and herb powder, cayenne, etc.). I really liked how a little cayenne upped the flavor of this soup. Everyone in the family loved it (even though they usually don't like the "healthy" dishes I make), but I especially loved this dish (being that I'm a health freak). Also, I threw in the tomatoes as is without draining them---I like the extra tomatoe flavor and nutrients!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
This is the perfect cream cheese frosting for cakes, bars, cookies, etc. I made it to along with Carrot Cake III from this site and everyone raved! I did increase the sugar to 3 cups for a little more sweetness.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
Like others reviewers, I specifically chose this recipe because it doesn't call for pineapples, coconut, etc. I'm a purist when it comes to carrot cake. I used only a little over 1/2 a cup of the nuts (a cup is too much for us) and I used Cream Cheese Frosting II from this site (the one for cream cheese lovers - like me!) and it was perfect. People fought for a slice of this cake at work and at an Easter Dinner party I attended. I'll post pictures soon.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
OMG! The BEST thumbprint cookies ever!!! I was probably too busy baking and eating these last Christmas so it's been a year and I forgot to put up a review for this recipe! I followed other reviewers' tips (i.e. extra 1/4 cup flour, making small balls, using end of handle of wooden spoon to perfectly indent the balls, and chilling in fridge before baking) and my cookies came out perfect-looking and delicious! These are melt in your mouth goodness and one batch is never enough. In fact, I think I made 3-4 batches of these last Christmas and I may have only given away 1 of those batches in my cookie gift boxes because I kept the rest all for me---yes, me!!! This is sooo good, it should be illegal!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
Yummy cinnamon-y melt-in-your-mouth goodness! These are so delicious. I followed the recipe exactly except for I had to double the cinnamon/sugar mixture to coat the cookie balls really good before baking them. These do bake up perfectly at 8 minutes. I made these last Christmas but was probably too busy making and eating them to rate this recipe =) I can't wait to make and eat these this Christmas again!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
Delicious!!! My first veggie burger ever and it was GREAT! I followed the recipe exactly except for adding an extra egg since I didnt' want to deal with a mixture that doesn't stick together and used a 1 cup measuring cup (sprayed with cooking spray) to help shape my patties to perfection! I got 5 wonderful, thick patties from the recipe and I baked them in the oven. I had to bake them a bit longer than the time called for so I broiled each side on high for an extra 3-5 minutes at the very end, but that wasn't a problem because it was common sense to do so since the patties were still too soft after 10 minutes on each side. We ate it on hamburger buns with lettuce, some Miracle Whip, and lots of ketchup (you need lots of ketchup when eating these because for some reason it tastes way better that way)! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I'll be making these over and over again!

Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
Wow, talk about a flavorful dish! I especially loved the corn salsa. I think the jicama is really what put it over the top for me. Plus, it's so simple yet impressive! The only thing I would do different next time is decrease the cayenne pepper used to season the fish by half the amount called for or more because it is waaay too spicy for my taste as written in the recipe (although that's expected from the title of this recipe!). So if you don't like super spicy food, BEWARE and reduce the amount of cayenne pepper!!!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
All I can say is, "WOW." This is so simple yet so tasty. I don't like a strong lemon taste in my fish so I just used less lemon juice and since I'm watching my fat/calorie intake I only put a pat of butter in. Also, I pan fried/braised the fillets in a little olive oil in a pan (the oven was occupied with a cake I was baking) then added the butter right at the end so it wouldn't burn. The fish didn't crisp at all and instead became a tender melt-in-your-mouth texture. The husband practically swallowed his fillet whole!
