Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
Great! I only bake 8-9 minutes, but I think I make them smaller as well. I also used coconut milk and omitted the white sugar all together. I think they would be deathly sweet with it in there!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
I don't think I will repeat this. I made the lemon blueberry version and used a food processor to shred the butter. I found the texture too moist to make into a scone and I ended up adding a lot of extra flour. Baking took longer than expected as well. The taste was alright, but not spectacular, although I did enjoy the lemon/blueberry flavor. The effort to clean the sticky gloop out of the food processor was too much, and I will return to my other scone recipe.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
My favorite muffin recipe so far! I get away with 1/2 cup brown sugar since the applesauce adds sweetness (sometimes I add a bit more). Definitely worth it!

Brazilian Black Bean Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
I was looking for a way to use up some leftover ham and a mango that was getting ripe. I love sweet potatoes, so this recipe looked very intriguing. I have to agree that the flavor combination, while surprising, is quite good. I omitted the sausage and used fewer black beans and more potato. I also added some paprika and garlic powder.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
Love this recipe!! This is the third time I have used it and it never fails to satisfy (and impress!) I use all whole wheat flour and substituted honey for sugar. Thanks for such a phenomenal pizza crust recipe that I will use for the rest of my life!!

Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
This is a great idea. I don't use the jalapeno because I usually don't have any, but I add extra cumin and some chili powder. It is different from hummus with tahini, but it makes for a refreshing (and lighter) change.

Butter Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
Definitely practical, definitely easy. Just a note, I used vegetable oil spread instead of butter, so I also reduced the amount of milk to prevent my batter from getting too runny. I also baked it in a loaf pan. The exterior of the cake was a little dark, but the "crust" was my favorite part of the cake.

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2007
Excellent! I made it in the slow cooker and got a great thick and creamy soup. I actually had to let some of the water evaporate off during cooking, but I didn't use the barley. I recommend dicing the potatoes very small so that they get very soft. I also added carrots, celery and sage. Very easy and cheap -- perfect for a busy college student.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
I made this bread at 1/2 the scale, and I got about 14 dinner rolls and one small loaf. I used all wheat flour, but the bread was very soft and had a great texture, especially when spread with a little butter. I didn't have any honey, so I used brown sugar. Fairly easy for not having a bread machine.

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
I also used olive oil in place of shortening, and I only made a third of the recipe. I think next time I will add more water, because the dough was too crumbly to work with. It might be worthwhile to make the whole recipe and then just freeze them because it is tedious to roll all of them out.

Mediterranean Medley Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
Well, I have to say that being a college student, I didn't have a lot of the ingredients on hand, but I wanted to try the concept of a rice salad. I used frozen vegetables in place of peas and carrots, added chick peas, and omitted the olives and radishes. I thought the flavor of the dressing was good, and I added some balsamic vinegar as well. Overall it was very easy, but the combination of rice, tuna, and dressing was somewhat overwhelming. The salad was good warm or chilled served over spinach. I'm not sure if I will make it again or not.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2007
These cookies are delicious! I ran out of white flour, so I used 1 1/4 c wheat flour and 1 1/2 c white flour. It really gave the cookies an interesting texture and flavor. I also substituted 1/3 of the butter with applesauce which also added sweetness and made the cookies very soft. Thanks!

Pecan Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
I'm a novice when it comes to making pies and pie crusts, but when I was called upon to make a pecan pie for my family's Christmas gathering, I knew it had to be perfect--I did a lot of research and decided on this recipe, following the advice of other reviewers (adding about 2 tbsp. flour and 2 tbsp. butter.) I also added an extra 1/2 c chopped pecans. The pie came out wonderfully! (Well, aside from the fact that the crust I prepared from a Martha Stewart recipe was a bit crumbly.) This pie was not as terribly sweet as other pecan pies and the texture less runny, making it less overwhelmingly sweet. Everyone loved it and I will definitely make it again!

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
I used slightly less butter, and the dough turned out very crumbly, making the slicing of the biscotti kind of messy. The flavor was great, though! I used even more cinnamon and a little pumpkin pie spice. I underbaked a little to keep them from getting too hard, and they tasted delicious!

Linzer Torte Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
These make very pretty cookies, however the flavor was not as profound as I would have liked. I expected more of a lemon flavor which did not come through despite the extra lemon zest that I used. Also, the dough was very sticky and difficult to roll. Overall, they look better than they taste. I won't be adding this to my regular Christmas cookie list.

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Raisin

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
These are a very dense, not too sweet cookie. I used brown sugar to make them extra moist and used 1 whole egg. I added some skim milk to help hold the cookies together. It's a good way to easily use up an old banana, plus the PB is healthier than shortening.

Date Balls

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
This was a very bizarre cookie. The cookies never hardened and remained gooey blobs that stuck to your teeth. I wouldn't go through the trouble to make them again.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
This was my first time cooking quinoa, and I will say that I scorched it a little bit. The dish is very pretty and tasty, although 2 cans of beans is too much I think. Also, I think you might need additional broth because it dried off too quickly and burned. I'll keep trying, though.
