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.

Hearty Pasta Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This is a delicious soup and the recipe is easily adaptable to fit the ingredients you have on hand. I made a vegetarian version with a sausage substitute and vegetable broth, and it was excellent. I will certainly be making this one again.

Beef Cabbage Hash

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I'll definitely be making this one again! This was a hit with everyone in my family, including my cabbage-hating fiance. I'm vegetarian, so I substituted a meat analog for the ground beef, and that turned out just fine. It did seem to take a bit longer to cook than 10 minutes, but I had it on medium heat, which may explain the difference. Apart from the meat substitute, I followed the recipe as written. Delicious as is, with good potential for making variations.

Shepherd's Pie Complete

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
I made a vegetarian version of this using veggie burger crumbles. I used about half the amount of gravy in the recipe, which seemed about right to me. Everyone in my family loved this, so it will become my standard shepherd's pie recipe from now on.

German Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I added a LOT more liquid to this recipe, in the form of a large can of tomato sauce and another can of water, because that's what I had on hand. Otherwise, it would have been more like a casserole. The soup was good-- a bit on the mild side, which is the way my kids like it. This is a good way to sneak some cabbage into people who say they hate cabbage. :-D

Easy Potato Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
I made this soup using vegetarian sausage crumbles. I melted the onions in unsalted butter instead of margarine, added 1 veggie bouillon cube along with the water, and substituted a mixed blend of vegetables that included carrots because I didn't have frozen carrots by themselves. The soup was delicious, but we did feel like we needed to add a fair amount of salt to it. I'll be making this one again, I'm sure.

Cherry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I made this substituting seitan for the chicken and plain yogurt for the buttermilk. I omitted the apples. When I first tried it in a sandwich a few hours later it seemed really bland; the next morning, however, I tried it to see how it had mellowed overnight, and it was much tastier. I had thought I wouldn't make this one again, but now I think I will give it a second go and be sure to make it well in advance of serving it.

Jamaican Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
I am extremely pleased with this recipe! I reduced the water by half, but increased the coconut milk and tomatoes. I also doubled the spices, except for the red hot sauce (Sriracha, in my case). Next time I will leave the quantity of tomatoes as is, but continue with the reduced water and doubled coconut milk and spices. I used vegetarian chicken substitute and bottled lime juice, and we served it with the shredded pizza cheese we had on hand. This was fantastic. My fiance is a VERY picky eater, and he enjoyed it and said I should definitely make it again! It has a nice warm spiciness to it, without being uncomfortably hot. If I could give it six stars, I would.

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
These are easy and delicious! I used much less salt than the recipe called for. They were done about 10 minutes faster, probably because my oven cooks kind of hot. I will definitely make these again!

Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I was very happy with the way this turned out, once I made a few adjustments. First of all, 4 or 5 pounds of potatoes is plenty. More than that, and it will overflow your crockpot. I used dried minced onion in place of fresh, and subbed vegetable bouillon for chicken. I added liberal dashes of garlic salt and black pepper, and finally threw in about 1 1/2 t. of herbes de Provence on top of the ingredients in the recipe. I believe it was this last herb blend that really made it into a very fine potato soup. Will certainly make this again, perhaps adding a vegetarian meat substitute of some kind as an experiment.

Whipped Cardamom Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2007
I made this recipe with the canned fried onion bits on top that people often use on green bean casserole, instead of shallots, because one of my kids has a huge aversion to onions but will eat those canned things. Excellent even with that substitution. Someday I will make them following the recipe more exactly, too. Truth be told, the cardamom is an excellent addition to the mashed sweet potatoes and they would make a fine side dish even without any onions at all. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Quinoa Pilaf

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I'm giving this one five stars. The fact that one of my kids hated it had nothing to do with the quality of the recipe and everything to do with the fact that he rejects all things new. The other child loved it and cleaned her plate! I can see myself making variations of this recipe from time to time, with different veggies or types of quinoa. The recipe is excellent as is, but also has great potential for modification.
