Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
Sooo good!! I pureed the soup like some of the other reviewers did, and then added the peanut butter, rice, and salsa. I think the presentation is very nice that way. Also added a couple shakes each of ginger and paprika. It's great that such a rich tasting soup can be so healthy! We'll definitely be having this one on a regular basis. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Chicken Tequila Fettuccini

Reviewed: May 1, 2005
Yummy yummy. This dish doesn't have to be so time consuming if you organize the preparation. I wish I'd done that myself a little better!! Chopping all the peppers and onion in advance makes a BIG difference. Great for a special occasion meal. I'll be making this again!

Pesto Polenta Lasagna

Reviewed: May 11, 2005
Oh, YUM!!!!!!!! This was my first experience making and eating polenta; it's delicious!!! I agree with an earlier review that this would go well with additions, that will be something I'll try next time. I made as is, except I used a canned 5-cheese sauce instead of marinara, and I sprinkled some garlic pepper and rosemary over the cheese before I returned it to the oven. I will DEFINITELY be making this again. Loved it!! Thanks!:)

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
Amazing cookie--I went out to find neighbors to try them because they were so good! I was more than a little generous with the maple syrup in the batter; I think I may have put almost 4 tablespoons in. They were mapley enough for me. It's important to remember that most pure maple syrups have a very subtle flavor, so it won't have a strong "maple" taste if you're using the real thing instead of imitation stuff. But there's nothing better than the real thing, in my opinion. I didn't have maple sugar, but took an earlier reviewer's advice of just using cinnamon and nutmeg, and I felt like I didn't lose anything. I also cut the amount of sugar in half that I used to roll the dough balls in, 1/4 cup is more than enough. Such soft cookies! Definitely a make-again.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
Delicious! Will definitely make again. I added 1/2 t of vanilla extract, but it didn't really make much difference to the recipe, so I don't think I'll add it next time. It was a very tart bread, so I'm thinking I will add the drizzled icing topping the next time I make this. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2005
Very nice recipe. Good for making your own little tweaks here and there. A splash or two of lime juice added in with the broth is a tasty compliment.:)

Macadamia-Crusted Sea Bass with Mango Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2005
Delicious recipe! I didn't change anything except the type of fish I used. I used mahi mahi because certain kinds of sea bass have been terribly overfished due to irresponsible fishing methods. There are many excellent alternatives to sea bass (Chilean sea bass has been particularly overfished) that are more known for sustainable fishing practices. Mahi mahi and pacific halibut both have wonderful textures to complement this dish. Thanks for the recipe, I'll be making it again for sure!

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
Weird and delicious! These would make good appetizers for a party. We ate ours as burgers like another reviewer suggested here, and they were great that way. I had some jarred red peppers on hand from another recipe, and I chopped a bit up and threw them in the mix, and they complimented this recipe really well. Also added alot more spices, a few shakes of garlic salt, basil, and italian seasonings, and seasoned the patties with garlic pepper while I was frying. Versatile recipe, we'll make this again! Thanks!

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Absolutely delicious!! I'll be making these again and again. The only changes I made were to use half & half instead of milk, and 3/4 of the butter. A wonderful and easy fall treat!

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 1, 2005
Loved it! So moist--will definitely make again. Added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter, and I halved the cinnamon in the streusel topping and replaced it with nutmeg. So good!

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
Super yummy and super easy. I added a shake or two each of ginger and nutmeg; not enough to be able to taste either spice, but just enough to intensify the flavor of the soup. I also added the cream to taste, which was about half of the listed amount. This soup would be excellent for company. I'll make this one again; thanks for the recipe!

Ibby's Pumpkin Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Very good recipe. Mine was a little dry, but that was my fault for keeping it in the oven for a little too long. Just make sure you keep an eye on it in the oven, and if it looks dry before you put it in, add an extra tablespoon of chicken broth. Will make again.

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
This is great! I love the lentil-apricot combo. Next time though, I think I might chop up the apricots a little more so I can have them more dispersed throughout the soup. I served this with the Blueberry Cornmeal muffins also on this website, and I thought the two recipes went well together. Added a 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and a couple shakes extra of the cumin and thyme. As leftovers, this soup is delicious with some shredded cheddar cheese sprinkled on top! Thanks for the recipe!

Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
An interesting textured change from typical blueberry muffin recipes. I loved the crunch these muffins had right out of the oven. I made this recipe as a side to the lentil-apricot soup also on this website, and it paired nicely. I'll make these muffins again. Thanks!:)
