Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
These were great! I was surprised by how much I liked them. So easy, fast, and tasted amazing. Can't wait for my zucchini this summer, a great way to eat them!

Easy Fusilli with Tomato Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
This was good for a quick weeknight meal that tasted fresh and was easy and enjoyed by everyone. I used the sauce with cheese tortellini.

Easy Mashed Potato and Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
These were really good! Though I admit that I changed things a bit . . . used zucchini & peppers for the veggies, coasted them with oil, salt, pepper, chili powder and crushed garlic before roasting. Used the flavored oil in the mashed potatoes instead of butter (made my own potatoes) and added green onions to them. Fried the corn tortillas before filling and used green enchilada sauce. They were wonderful!!

Corn Chowder I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I really like this chowder! I changed it quite a bit though so please forgive me! I didn't use bacon as we are vegetarian. Sauteed the onion in butter, added the potatoes (not pre-cooked) and sauteed a bit, added the flour and then added veggie broth. I let that simmer for a while until the potatoes were tender then added some half & half, a can of creamed corn, half a bag of frozen corn, salt & pepper. Let it cook awhile longer and mashed some of it with my potato masher right in the pot to get the thicker texture. It was really delicious topped with cheese! Great base recipe here, you can add or change what you like! Will definitely make again-easy, inexpensive, and very tasty. The kids loved it too!

Cheddar Dill Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
These were ok-not quite what I was hoping for. They were pretty good right out of the oven but not so great once they cooled. They are very biscuit like in texture, probably because of the baking powder. I added a lot more cheese and cut the dill in half. Still looking for a good savory muffin, one that's not a biscuit in disguise!

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
We really enjoyed this. I like the flavor of the sun dried tomatoes, love the idea of using the oil from the jar. I cut the cheese back a bit and added white wine before starting the broth additions. I make a lot of risotto and didn't have any trouble cooking this-it cooked the same as any risotto, took about 25 minutes once I started adding the broth. The only thing I will say is that with the cheese and tomato oil it is quite rich, so be prepared! Very yummy and I'll definitely make it again!

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
5++! This was wonderful! We loved it, even more than I expected to. With such simple ingredients and the only spice being curry powder I wasn't sure it would be flavorful enough but I was wrong! I realized after I was done that I forgot to add the nuts-oops! Results were still fantastic so didn't seem to matter. I used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of cream and just a red bell which I added after the potatoes to make sure it was nice and soft. This was a winner and I'll make it regularly!!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I thought these muffins tasted great but have to say they didn't look too great by the time I got them out of the pan. They looked great in the pan, and didn't stick too badly as I greased it thoroughly (though some of the sugar topping did stick to the pan as it had cooked on pretty firmly). But coming out of the pan, they did kind of fall apart a bit. A few of them sunk in the middle as others have mentioned. They tasted great though, I didn't change a thing in the recipe. I doubled the muffin part but didn't double the topping and it was perfect. We really enjoyed them and I will definitely make them again. In the future, I might not fill them all the way to the top as recommended-I think this will make them easier to remove from the pan and hopefully prevent them from falling apart! I will also try them with different fruits-peaches in the summer would be GREAT!

Cream Filled Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
These were great! The filling is delicious!! I used a cake mix for the cake and piped the filling in from the top. I do need to work on my filling technique a bit . . . think I used too small of a tip. I didn't remove any cake to fill them, just stuck the tip in and squeezed the filling in. Worked great, will work even better with a larger tip next time (this time I used a 10-worked pretty good but I like the filling so much that I wanted more in each cake). Used chocolate frosting and decorated the tops with leftover filling. Thanks!!

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Thisi was very good! I used regular boursin, not the pepper as I don't like it. Boursin was a good price at Trader Joe's and I really think it has a much better flavor than cream cheese, so I'd definitely stick with it! I subbed broccoli for the asparagus but I can't wait to try it with the asparagus when it's in season! I will definitely make this again! My only complaint was I wished there was more sauce; probably my fault though-based on other reviews, I cut the broth to 3/4 cup and then let it simmer down for awhile with the mushrooms before I added the cheese. The mushrooms gave the broth great flavor but maybe next time I'll start with the listed amount of broth so that there is more left after it reduces.

Tortellini Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Excellent! I made it vegetarian by leaving the sausage out and using veggie broth. I couldn't bring myself to use ketchup so used a small can of tomato sauce as others mentioned. I added kidney beans too. Love the tortellini! Everyone loved it and it made lots for leftovers too! Will definitely make again.

Tater Tot Hot Dish II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2009
I was looking for something quick and easy that used items I had on hand and this fit the bill so I decided to try it out. I can maybe see that this would be popular at a potluck or something-where people are only taking a spoonful and eating with other things. As a stand alone main course though, it was fairly unappetizing. It looked ok in the pan but when served on the plate, it was just a pile of slop, not very pretty to look at. But, beyond appearances, the main problem I had was how salty it is. The soups, the fried onions, and the tator tots combine to make it so salty that none of us could eat more than a few bites-and I didn't even add the extra salt called for in the recipe. I did add green beans and cheese as some other reviewers recommended. I guess this just wasn't my family's favorite.

Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
These are absolutely fantastic! I love them! I skipped the mixing of the flour into the caramel sauce and it still turned out great-I just drizzled the sauce over the top. Yum and a new favorite!!

Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
LOVE this! I used black beans instead of garbanzo and didn't hold back with the cheese . . . used the whole package! I was short on quinoa so used 1/2 quinoa and 1/2 couscous and it was still great. Will make it regularly!

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake III

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
The texture was perfect and it smelled great but the flavor was really bland. Like others, I reduced the water to 1 1/3 cups and added vanilla and instant espresso to it. I actually think that a bit of salt in the brown sugar/cocoa mixture would make a huge improvement and bring out the flavor of it a bit. I'm going to try it again with some salt becuase I feel like this recipe has so much potential but it is just missing something.

Vegetable Stuffed Cannelloni

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This was really good! I actually made this into a lasagna, with great results. I used the vegetable filling between the pasta layers and layering the sauce over each layer. It was delicious! I left out the mushrooms, added spinach. The only reason I have given this a 4 star rating is because the sherry flavor was a tad too strong and the dish itself was just a bit too rich. When I make it again, I will cut down the sherry and maybe use 1/2 & 1/2 instead of the cream. Also, adding tomatoes or something to the sauce could cut the richness. As it was, I served this dish with a tomato vinaigrette salad which helped to cut the richness a bit. Excellent dish, thank you!

Quick and Easy Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
This was good, not what I expected it to be but pretty good. I added more milk and cheese, cut the salt and sugar. I baked it into muffins. It came out a lot more biscuit-like than I thought it would. I think reducing the baking powder would change that a bit. It was good; we ate them with a salad. The flavor of the cheese kind of got lost in the bread but they were still good.

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Great salad and very adaptable to what you have on hand! I didn't use cabbage as I didn't have it. Used both a red and yellow bell pepper and used a balsamic dressing instead of the lemon (just because I didn't have any lemons and had to improvise). The best part is the feta which I put on top of the salad-it's what makes the salad perfect. I served it over a bed of chopped romaine lettuce and it was fantastic-absolutely delicious; can't wait for lunch tomorrow!!

Wendy's Quick Pasta and Lentils

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
This was really good-very tasty, wholesome and healthy too! I definitely think that the results will vary based on the lentil soup that is used. I used Amy's Organic Lentil Soup. Followed everything else almost exactly except only used 1/2 of a box of spinach (didn't want the spinach to be overpowering). I also didn't let it sit for 20 minutes, just stirred the pasta (fusilli) into the sauce and served topped with parmesan. It was great, quick and easy!
