Sarah's Tofu Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
This was quite good, and it adapted well to the crockpot. I did reduce the broth to about 8 cups, which made a hearty soup. I wonder if the number of servings in the original recipe is right. . . that seems like an awful lot of soup for 4 people. I'm sure I will make this recipe again occasionally.

Tomato Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This soup is absolutely delicious and the recipe lends itself well to adaptations to fit the ingredients you have on hand. I will definitely be making this again.

Garlic Broccoli

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
At the suggestion of some other reviewers I reduced the sugar by 1/3 when I made this tonight. This sauce is one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted, and I will absolutely be making it again, and often. Because my fiance hates broccoli, I will try it on other things, too.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I made this vegetarian, using vegetable broth instead of chicken. This is one of the most delicious soups I have ever eaten! I will certainly be making this one over and over again.

German Chocolate Sauerkraut Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
I substituted 6 T. flaxseed meal for about a third of the butter. I also added between 1/2 and 3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips along with the sauerkraut. I baked this in a Bundt pan for 45 minutes. It was very nice, but next time I will increase the cocoa a bit and be sure I add the chocolate chips again. This recipe is a real keeper. Even the pickiest eaters in my house had no idea at all that there was sauerkraut in it; they loved it!

Speedy Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I made this substituting green peppers for the ground beef, because I am vegetarian. I used whole wheat spaghetti and I added a liberal sprinkling of Italian seasoning blend and probably the equivalent of 2-3 cloves of garlic. It was a tasty meal, served alongside a mixed green salad, but it would have been even better with more/different spices in it. I will surely make this again, but next time I will reduce the parsley and substitute other, more flavorful herbs in its place.

South African Yellow Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
This was good, but very sweet. . . more like a dessert, almost. If I make it again, I will reduce the white sugar significantly.

Authentic Hungarian Goulash

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I made a vegetarian version of this using a meat substitute, and my family enjoyed it very much. It has a mild (but not bland) flavor that appealed to all my picky eaters. I am glad I stumbled across this recipe; I'll certainly be making it again and again.

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I made a vegetarian version of this using imitation bacon bits in place of the ham, and veggie broth instead of beef. I used apple cider vinegar. It went over well with the whole family; everyone ate it and liked it. It definitely improves after it sits and the flavors mingle, so I would suggest making it ahead, refrigerating it, and then re-heating it to serve it.

Cottage Cheese Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
I made a vegetarian version of this using fake burger crumbles. As one reviewer suggested, I added 1/4 t. thyme and 1/4 t. marjoram. Instead of topping it with Parmesan (which I didn't have on hand), I topped it with a layer of ketchup. I made mine in a regular loaf pan with a total cooking time of about an hour. Turned out very nicely. I will definitely do this one again, and probably try to use the Parmesan next time just to see how that is. My meat-loving (and cottage-cheese-hating) fiance liked this vegetarian version very much.

Green Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
This did not turn out thick at all when I made it. If I make it again I will increase the amount of flour I add. Despite being quite thin, the flavor was pleasant. Really different from standard American fare.

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This can be altered easily to make a vegetarian version, and seems fairly adaptable for ingredients on hand, too.

Chicken Jambalaya I

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I made a vegetarian version of this with seitan, and it turned out delicious. I will certainly be using this recipe again. I was out of celery, so I substituted mixed vegetables and a liberal sprinkling of celery seed, which turned out very well, too.

Scalloped Carrots

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This isn't bad, but the sauce does have a kind of "gummy" quality that reduces my enjoyment of it a bit.

Tiropitas

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This is an excellent recipe. I added thyme, oregano, and nutmeg (didn't have any mint) as one reviewer suggested. I also used low-fat cottage cheese and cooking spray, as another reviewer mentioned. It turned out delicious, and even my fiance who says he hates both cottage cheese and feta loved it! I will certainly be making this one again.

Greek Green Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This was very tasty, and even the picky eaters in the family ate it. Next time, I will try adding oregano as other reviewers suggested, but it was already very good without that.

Easy Dinner Hash

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
I made a vegetarian version of this using veggie sausage crumbles. This recipe is highly adaptable and was a great way for me to use up some odds and ends of frozen vegetables. Simple, and doesn't make a lot of mess, especially if you use frozen diced potatoes and onions.

Italian One Step Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
This was just okay. It was a convenient way to make an easy meal with things I had on hand, and it was certainly a decent meal, but I think I will look for another recipe next time I want to make something along these lines. I did add to the spices, and I reduced the tomatoes as some reviewers have suggested. The proportion of the ingredients was fine, it just seemed to be a pile of ingredients, and lacked something to hold it together or make it seem like it was complete.

Country House Bed and Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
Wow! My whole family loved this and ate every last crumb! I made a vegetarian version with a sausage substitute, and it turned out great. I could see this becoming a family favorite right away. I did increase the croutons so they pretty much covered the bottom of the pan, but I left the other measurements as in the original recipe.
