Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
I was not expecting to like this as much as I did. I chose it because it seems so healthy with all the veggies but the flavor is outstanding. I think it is the feta-it can be so strong but it adds such great tang to this pasta! I used a can of diced tomatoes and 1/2 package of frozen spinach in place of the fresh stuff. My husband raved! This is a definite keeper!!

Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
I hate to admit how much I like Velveeta!! I'm sure this would be great with regular cheddar but the Velveeta made this soup so creamy! I used a 16 oz box of Velveeta. Other than that, the only change I made was to puree some of the soup before adding the cheese to thicken it up and I didn't need to add any cornstarch or anything. It made a lot-was great to dip french bread in and I had leftovers for lunch for two days! Thanks!!

Black Bean Rice Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
These were awesome! I added a large handful of seasoned breadcrumbs based on previous reviews and they held together perfectly. First vegetarian burger I have really enjoyed. Hubby liked them too (and he is a meat eater!). I will definitely make these again.

Absolutely Fabulous Portobello Mushroom Tortellini

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
LOVE this! Perfect for an easy meal that tastes like you really worked at it. I use baby bella mushrooms, saute them in a little butter for awhile until they are really soft and then add the garlic, wine and parsley. I have used refrigerated alfredo and also made my own-both were great! (I too can't stand the jarred alfredo but the refrigerated is pretty good.) Thanks for a great recipe!

Pakistani Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2007
In constant search of cheap meal ideas, I decided to give this a try. As written, I would have to rate this a 2 because lentils don't need to be soaked before cooking and the recipe calls for too much water-the general ratio is 2 parts water to one part lentils. If I had followed the directions of the recipe, this would have been REALLY watery/liquidy and I think pretty gross. Here is what I did . . . I rinsed 2 cups of brown lentils and simmered them with 4 cups of water, adding more water as needed until they were cooked to the right texture (was doubling the recipe). I added 5 cloves of chopped garlic and doubled the rest of the spices, except the cayenne (too spicy for my 3 yr old). As it simmered, it smelled good but looked boring so I sauteed some shredded carrots, yellow bell pepper, and zucchini in a separate pan while I caramelized the onion (a whole one). When the lentils were done, I added the sauteed veggies and the caramelized onions to the pot and stirred it up. I served it over Basmati Rice, topped it with cilantro and it still needed something. Paneer would have been great but I didn't have it so used some white crumbly Mexican cheese on the top (feta would have been great too). The end result was amazingly delicious! I will definitely make it again-in the future, I will add more veggies, caramelize 2 onions, cut down the lentils and use veggie broth to simmer the lentils in, plus add paneer to the top. Thanks for the idea and great spice combinati

Risotto with Tomato, Corn and Basil

Reviewed: May 10, 2007
Excellent! I changed this a bit and made mine in a more traditional way-I substituted vegetable broth for the milk (wasn't wild about the milk idea for some reason). I did everything else almost as indicated-didn't peel the tomato (too much work and not necessary!), added extra parmesan, and stirred in a pat of butter before serving. Topped with basil and more parmesan and it was great!! Very fresh tasting risotto because of the corn and basil-every last grain of rice was gone! Thanks!!

Pasta and Peas

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This was pretty good-it was easy, fast and fresh tasting. I used frozen peas as I don't like canned. For liquid, I used a couple of small ladel fulls of the pasta cooking water. After mixing it all together, I added black pepper and a couple of handfuls of parmesan cheese. It was pretty good-the basil and green onions gave it a fresh taste and my husband loves any pasta with peas in it. He added some previously cooked chicken to his and liked the addition. I think for a heavier dish, it would be good mixed with a white sauce. Overall I think it was pretty good, though as written, a bit bland. Plus the idea of the canned peas and their liquid making the sauce turned me off-frozen peas were great though! Thanks for the idea!!

Zucchini Mediterranean Style

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
This was ok, not fabulous, but a good base recipe. It needed more flavor or something. I added some cumin which helped but I had a lot left over. I served it again over pasta instead of rice and added a Italian Seasoning Blend and it was tons better. I may try it again-it made a decent pasta sauce in the end.

Blueberry Muffins II

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
If you are looking for a healthy wholesome muffin, this is not it! But if you are looking for a treat-this is the one! Very sweet and cakelike! Between 2 adults and 1 3 yr old, we actually ate a dozen in one sitting. YUM! Didn't change anything!

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
This was great! I used ground pork instead of sausage but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It got rave reviews from everyone! Thanks for the great recipe and a slightly different baked ziti-I'll definitely make it again.

Hummus Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I really liked the flavors of this a lot. Unfortunately, it burned . . . I think the temperature may have been too high. The edges were burned but the center was not cooked very well; and I only baked it for 12 mins. I think next time I'll cook it at 425. Otherwise, it was yummy-love the hummus idea. I used Roasted Garlic hummus, bell peppers and asparagus. I put sliced cooked sausage on half for my husband. Served with a fruit salad for an easy, quick and delicious meal! I'll definitely make it again-it's very adaptable to a variety of toppings as well as different hummus flavors too. Thanks!!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
This was the perfect thing for us! I am vegetarian and my husband is not-I cooked sausages on the side for him and he ate it all mixed together. I ate mine in corn tortillas with shredded cheese. Both ways were delicious. Even my super picky 3 yr old ate it without picking through it and asked for more (that alone is worth 5 stars!!). Besides being tasty, it was very easy, fast and cheap-a keeper!! I used one can of beans and added the spices in when I added the broth so they could cook into the rice. Perfect and definitely going into the rotation!!

Black Bean Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
This was good, healthy and very fast to make for a weeknight. I felt it could use something though-maybe some chili powder added to the bean mixture? A sprinkle of green onions on top after it comes out of the oven would also be nice. I will make it again with these additions to make it more of a chili type topping but it is also good as is!

Nectarine Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
I really liked this pie! I was being really lazy, so I didn't make my own crust (used a frozen one) and didn't even peel the nectarines! I added an extra nectarine (mine were a little small) and used vanilla extract instead of almond. I dotted the top with a little bit of butter (about 1 Tbs total) for some added richness. It was fantastic! A really easy pie for a homemade pie taste without lots of work! And I ended up loving the color that the skins gave to the pie. Thanks Vicki!

Aloo Matar

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
This was just okay for me. My husband really like it though. It was a little too tangy-I prefer some heat in my Indian dishes. I much prefer Aloo Phujia from this site because it is a lot spicier.

Aloo Phujia

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
I really like this recipe. I make it fairly regularly and my husband loves it. The trick is to cook it over medium heat so the potatoes and onions don't burn. You have to cut the potatoes into fairly small pieces so that they cook quickly and evenly. It's so important to saute them uncovered first and then when you cover them for the last ten minutes, that is when they really soften up and steam. Don't lift the lid! If you have your burner at the right temp, they won't burn and they will come out perfectly. Sometimes I add frozen peas during the last few minutes of cooking time and I always serve this with basmati rice. My only complaint is that it makes my house smell like curry the next day! Otherwise it is great!
