Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
I made this with super firm tofu and added a little kelp flakes to the batter to give it a little "fishy" taste and it was perfect! Being a vegetarian, I'm always trying to convert my pre-veg favorites to suit my current lifestyle and this one worked marvelously. The sauce was great...didn't use the yogurt, just used some Veganaise and the rest of the ingredients. Super!

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2009
I've never rated anything under a four on this site, but I have to say the title of this cookie is very misleading. A). It isn't chewy, it's very cake-like and B). It doesn't taste like peanut butter at all. I think that maybe people's definition of a "chewy" cookie must vary, because like one reviewer said, they should rise slightly while cooking and then sink flat while cooling. Slightly underdone in the middle. These maintained their spoonful shape, and even rose a little highter than that. The result was a somewhat dry, cake like cookie that didn't have much peanut butter taste to it. Next time I will search for just a basic peanut butter cookie recipe and add chocolate chips to it.

Cocoa Rum Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
These were great. Easy, although a tad bit time consuming rolling the balls. I used Malibu Rum and tried to roll in coconut, but it wouldn't stick, so I just mixed the coconut in and rolled it in regular white sugar (not powdered sugar). They were great soft, just made and even better the next day cold from the fridge. I thought the rum mixture was just right, but maybe because I used a smoother rum.

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
These are great. It did take me a little while to beat the egg whites to stiff peaks, and I don't think they were necessarily stiff, but they turned out great. I added 3 drops of peppermint extract (I like stuff minty), green food coloring, chocolate chips and I opted to sprinkle the crushed candy cane on top. My husband's opinion: "I did not expect this type of cookie to have this much flavor and taste this good, can you make more?" It's a keeper!

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This was great! The salty stuffing mixture with the sweet squash was the perfect combination. My squash disliking husband seemed to really like it and agreed to have it again in a month or so, so that's good. I didn't have any carrots, so I added zucchini and I wanted a little more protien besides the chick peas, so I added cubed firm tofu. It was great. The tofu soaked up the broth flavor (which was veggie broth) and really popped! Thanks for a great fall recipe - it's goin' in the box!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Fantastic! Easy to make. I made it exactly as listed and didn't change a thing. I'm vegetarian and love pouring this on top of my veggie meatballs! Yumm.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
These were fantastic. I used yellow summer squash, substituted 1 cup of the flour with whole wheat flour, and did 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce to make a slightly healthier version. Then I erased all those healthy qualities by adding in a cup of chocolate chips! They were moist, chocolatee and yummy. Not like cake, not chewy, somewhere in between, but great! I didn't make the frosting and I think next time I might lower the sugar amount to 1 cup.

Creme de Menthe Grasshopper Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
I used Thin Mint cookies for the crust instead of Oreo's. I like it minty!! It was fantastic. I took it to a friend's dinner party and it was the hit of the night. It was hard keeping the kids away from it, but the adults weren't about to share!

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
I use this recipe all the time! I stopped buying frozen waffles for my family and make this recipe in batches for the weekend. They freeze great and just pop into the toaster oven. It is also a great recipe to play around with. I've substituted the apple sauce with banana, pumpkin and other fruit. It really makes a nice base recipe to start from. Yum! We love them and they're healthy!

Gold-Medal Vegetable Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
This was very good, but I can't give it 5 stars. It's worth making, but I feel the Onion & Chive cream cheese overpowered everything and I could have just used that for the dip.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
I could eat this stuff by the spoonful, never mind taking the time to put it on cookies. Thanks for the recipe, this will be a keeper!

Gingerbread Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
These were a huge hit at my daughters toddler Christmas party. I didn't use the frosting recipe (had my own already made), but the cupcakes were delicious. Thanks!

Zucchini Yogurt Multigrain Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
Great Muffin! I changed things up a bit. I upped the wheat flour to 1 cup, and reduced the all-purpose flour to 3/4 cup. I also added 1/2 cup of soy flour to add some protein. I used oatmeal that I put in the blender because I didn't have any oat flour and that worked great. I also did not add the cup of sugar and only went with the 3/4 cup honey (I'd rather have honey than white sugar). Lastly, I didn't have any yogurt, so I used sour cream. The muffins came out moist, and really tasty. I don't like muffins too sweet, so these were perfect! Thanks for the recipe and all the suggestions!
