Feta and Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Definitely needs 2 peppers as written. Very good but makes a lot as this is a strong flavor. Went over well at my BBQ. I served it with drizzled EVOO and parsley on top and carrots and pita chips for dipping.

Carrot Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2011
very good recipe. my kids really enjoyed it and they were easy to make. for adults, a bit too bland and i would have liked to have a dipping sauce recipe along with the patties. i made mine into about 2 inch rounds to serve as side items.

Awesome Eggplant Rollatine

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Fantastic dish! I did the lasagna version as some others did and my kids gobbled it up! I added diced mushrooms and some spices to the cheese mixture for the 'layer' and used Italian breadcrumb mix from Whole Foods in lieu of the homemade coating called for in the recipe. And I only used one large eggplant sliced thin lengthwise and that was more than enough for a 9x13 pan.

Asparagus, Feta and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
fantastic recipe! i did change it slightly based upon reviews plus took a shortcut and used canned asparagus, and a large vine-ripened tomato diced really small, halved the vinegar/oil, and used chicken broth and garlic to cook the couscous (used Israeli variety) and my kids and hubby all ate seconds and asked for it for lunch tomorrow - THANK YOU!!! :)

Cream of Broccoli Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
I forgot to put the milk in this recipe and it was still quite tasty - but not without having to tweak quite a lot of the spices beforehand - garlic, parsley, red pepper, etc. Still - my kids actually ate it - so thank you!!

Warm Crab Parmesan Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
very tasty, but I had to tweak it quite a it by adding a significant amount of spices - garlic, red pepper, no-salt McCormicks, but it was quite tasty when done! Word of warning to others: I doubled the recipe and it didn't cook well in the center - make sure you put it in a wide, flat dish for more even cooking, espcially when doubling.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
PHENOMENAL!!! one regular size butternut squash was just right for this recipe. i added sauteed spinach with the bottom layer and brown mushrooms for the middle layer. that made the PERFECT combo for a yummy vegetarian meal... if you can't possibly forego meat, add shredded chicken to a layer and i am sure you will not be disappointed!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
My kids & hubby LOVED this recipe, but for me I am a fan of more savory risotto recipes. So I tried to add things to make it more to my taste buds - I amended the recipe as per other feedback and doubled the squash & rice amount, but I also added garlic with the onions, and placed about 2/3 cup chopped brown mushrooms with the 4th cup of broth and then added a pinch of cinnamon & allspice and parsley for some more flavor. I would also recommend that you wait until the VERY end to add the squash (not half up front as per recipes directions). My experience with risotto is that you must let the liquid absorption happen before adding the flavoring ingredients. In this case, the thickness of the squash interfered with the broth absorption and made it more difficult to stir and it would sometimes stick to the bottom...

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
very good flavor but not enough to get over the texture after they have cooled. if you eat them IMMEDIATELY out of the oven they are delicious, but just not very practical for cookies. i made these for my son's daycare Christmas party and the kids took one bite and spit them out. :(

Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I followed Dee's review and made it a bit spicy/savory. I also added about 1/8 cup brown sugar. In addition, you can save a bit of time by beginning the broth/pumpkin mixture while the onions are simmering. I served this as the starter course for Christmas dinner and it was a big hit. Thanks!

Roast Pumpkin and Feta Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
this recipe was amazing! but i made a few subtle changes as i felt they would be received better by my skeptical husband who kept saying 'you are making pumpkin what? isn't pumpkin supposed to be for pie?'... i pureed all of the pumpkin, added some celery salt, a bit more garlic than the recipe called for, added an extra cube of vegetable stock and mixed all of the feta into the mixture rather than serving it on top as described. it was delicious (and still is)...

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

they taste more like popcorn than pumpkin seeds from my childhood. still not too bad, just think the butter base may not be right. will try olive oil next time.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
very good recipe but the use of muffin tins for cooking makes them too small and they aren't quite as molten as they could be. better to use a larger souffle cup and extend the cooking time and then they are simply to DIE for...
