Spicy Three Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I doctored the seasonings on this quite a bit, and I can't use alcohol in cooking, so I had to omit the red wine. The soup turned out delicious, and my (very picky) husband made a point of telling me that he really liked it a LOT. I didn't have celery, so I used bell pepper and some celery seed in place of that. I added marjoram, parsley, Bacon Salt, a little red hot sauce, a bay leaf, and some herbes de Provence. I ran most of the ingredients lightly through the food processor before adding them to the pot. The soup turned out delicious, with a very nice texture.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
I made this vegetarian with Boca crumbles instead of beef. I halved the amount of cayenne pepper because my kids are very fussy about spicy foods. I think this will be my new standard chili recipe from now on. It's delicious!

Grandma's Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
I made a vegetarian version of this using Boca crumbles instead of beef. I also substituted frozen vegetables for the canned. Several other reviews mentioned that the soup was too thick, but the texture turned out very nice for me. I will probably make this again but will see if I can find a way to take some of the acidic bite out of the tomato, which was just a bit strong for me. All in all, quite a good soup and worth making again.

West African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This is absolutely delicious! I subbed in quinoa for the rice because I wanted to use some I had on hand. Otherwise, I was faithful to the recipe. My husband, who is the second pickiest eater in the world, loved it. In fact, he said it is extremely similar to the sauce used in the "peanut butter chicken" from his favorite Chinese restaurant in Omaha, so after years of searching, I have stumbled across a good recipe for it!

Pumpkin Smoothie

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I was short on milk so I used carrot juice to make up the difference. I also added about a half teaspoon of vanilla. I used honey instead of the brown sugar. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. The smoothies seemed more like milkshakes than smoothies, but they were delicious and I will definitely be making these again.

Sauteed Mushrooms in Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
I live in an alcohol-free household, so I made these using vegetable broth in place of the wine, and served them over pasta with a little dusting of fresh-grated Parmesan cheese. Absolutely marvelous, and I will make these again and again!

Slow Cooker Lime Chicken with Rice

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
I made a vegetarian version of this using vegetable broth, vegetarian "chickn" strips, and a wild rice blend. I adjusted to give the wild rice enough time to cook. Otherwise, I was true to the recipe. This was delicious, and I will be making this again!

Bob's Salad Dressing

This is a delicious dressing! It was perfect for a salad I made that had falafel as one of the ingredients. Will certainly be making this one again.

Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
I added oregano, rosemary, parsley, and a bay leaf. I also added some sliced carrots that I wanted to use up, and increased the pasta by about 50%. I threw in a pinch of sugar just because it seemed "right." The soup turned out delicious, and my kids asked to have it again the next night! We ate the soup with bread for dipping, and shredded cheese sprinkled on top. I'm sure I will make this again, and I will probably make the same adaptations to the recipe.

Garden Veggie Cheese Soup

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
I wasn't sure about this recipe, but it turned out delicious! I substituted vegetable broth for the chicken and omitted the sherry. I also added more carrots and left out the green beans because I had some carrots I wanted to use up. I used shredded cheese instead of the processed stuff, because that's what I had on hand. I think the texture would have been better if I had used the processed cheese, but it was still an excellent soup. I will be making this one again.

Spanish Garlic and Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I made this following the recipe almost exactly. I did use veggie broth instead of the water. This is a delicious, soothing soup! It's mild tasting but still has lots of flavor, and my husband liked it, even though he claims to hate cauliflower and cabbage. It was very good with grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. I know I will be making this one again.

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I made a vegetarian version of this using vegetable broth and vegetarian sausages. I added quite a bit of extra water because it seemed more like a casserole than a soup. It turned out delicious and everyone in the family ate theirs. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Grilled Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
This was really quite good, and my kids liked it, which is always a plus. I thought it was a good soup but could use a little seasoning change to give it more flavor. . . not sure what to add, though. Will probably make this again and tinker with it a little, though it is not bad as written.

Tangy Broccoli

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Surprisingly tasty and very easy! I used plain yellow mustard for mine, and it was still good.

Musaka

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
I made a vegetarian version of this using a meat substitute. I used a 14.5 oz. can of tomato sauce and adjusted the amount of water to compensate. I also doubled the egg and yogurt mixture. I used Italian seasoning blend as a substitute for the savory. It was perfectly done after 30 minutes in the oven, and was very well received by my entire family. It was on the mild side, but that appeals to my kids, so that was fine. I will definitely be making this one again.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
The serving size on this recipe is extremely generous. One "serving" was enough to feed my family of 4 as a side dish at dinner. This is a delicious recipe, and one I will certainly make again.
