Spicy Red Bell Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This soup is quite good as is, but it does need a little something to round out the flavor. I added a tiny bit of sugar, and that helped a little. Next time I will try adding extra carrot or perhaps throwing in some tomato. The level of heat was just right for me, but I can see how some people might find it too spicy. I always substitute vegetable broth for chicken, by the way.

Pasta with Greens N Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
I use vegetable broth and omitted the sausage to make this vegetarian. I sometimes add a pinch of crushed red pepper, but it is fine without that, too.

Brownie Mallow Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
These are rich and delicious. I shortened the cooking time because I used a gluten-free brownie mix that would have burned otherwise. I also used marshmallow fluff instead of marshmallows to make this vegetarian. Was a little messy spreading it on, but the results turned out beautifully.

Chicken Roche

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
Delicious! Used a recipe from this site for Creole Seasoning Blend. Used fresh green beans because I had some on hand. Subbed a vegetarian chicken substitute. Turned out very tasty and the picky eater I served it to liked it.

Roasted Garlic and Eggplant Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
This soup is epic! I made it vegetarian with vegetable broth and vegan Worcestershire sauce substitutions. I also increased the cayenne to 1/8 tsp., which was fine but may not have been necessary. My husband normally loathes eggplant, but he LIKED this soup. I'd list this one among my top 5 favorite soups of all time.

Black Beans a la Olla

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
This is delicious! I didn't have fresh cilantro so I subbed about 3 tablespoons of dried. Coordinated nicely with cheesy chipotle mashed potatoes, also on this site.

Broccoli, Leek, and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
I really was excited about this recipe because I love just about everything in it. The leeks did not puree well, so I ended up with a pulpy mess that had a decent flavor. The result was not worth the expense and the effort.

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
This will be my go-to vinaigrette recipe from now on. I Increased the oil to match the amount of vinegar, as others have suggested. Was great over cucumber salad with chunks of feta.

Cindy's Snappy Sensational Superfood Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Doubled all the herbs and spices except for the garlic and still found this quite bland. Added some salt, lemon juice, and a can of diced tomatoes and that helped. A good start that turns out well with a few modifications.

Mexican Bean and Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
I made this to use up some extra squash, expecting only to find it so-so, but it turned out delicious! I used nonfat plain yogurt in place of the sour cream. Will definitely be making this one again. Would adapt pretty easily to the crock pot, I think.

Creamy Celery Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
I used gluten-free flour and breadcrumbs, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It's certainly easy and it turned out delicious! I'm sure I will be making this again in the future.

Turkish Style Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
This recipe is delicious! It's rich and creamy, and nonfat Greek yogurt worked perfectly for a healthier version. Even my super-picky teenagers liked it. I will be making this again, and often.

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This works very well in the crockpot, too. Quorn tenders make a good substitute for the chicken. I think the flavors worked very nicely without any additions. Next time I may double the recipe and really fill the crockpot.

Squambo

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2011
I made this vegetarian with a beef-flavored vegetable soup base in place of the broth. I doubled the basil, garlic, and allspice. I also added a little tvp along with the tomatoes and liquid. This turned out a little thin, so next time I will also increase the cornstarch. The flavor was quite nice, though. If I had doubled the cayenne, I think my kids would have rejected it. As is, it was a satisfying, healthy dinner.

Lemon Berry Slushy

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
This is delicious and easy. My strawberries came pre-sweetened so I didn't use any other sugar. The whole family drank every drop!

Fideo

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
I made this using gluten-free thin spaghetti. I did have to add more water and cook the noodles a little longer, as I expected. Made a super-delicious filling for spaghetti tacos!

Beer Cheese Soup VI

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2011
Pretty good! I'd suggest using 2 cans of broth and a whole beer and then adjusting thickness with the remaining broth if you want more beer flavor and a thicker soup. This recipe can be made gluten free if you have gluten free broth, beer, and flour. When I made it GF, I had to add cornstarch, too, because the GF flour didn't quite do the job.

Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This is pretty good chili, but a little too sweet for my taste. I halved the cayenne and the heat was still there but at a level my kids could tolerate. I added a touch of soy sauce and a dash of liquid smoke. Those changes, plus cheese on top, made the dish much more to my liking.

Aloo Palak

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
This was pretty good, but I agree with another reviewer that it could use some ginger and/or onions. I did add a little garam masala toward the end of cooking, but it still seemed to be just "missing something." Basically a good recipe that could use a little tweaking.
