Cabbage Borsht

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
I made this soup with vegetarian chicken patties instead of chicken, and it was a big hit with my family. My daughter asked me to make this a lot more often!

Vegetable Paella

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
Though I found this to be somewhat bland, my kids looooved it. I doubled (or more) the paprika, and I used half a tablespoon of minced garlic instead of garlic salt. The recipe doesn't specify how much oil to use, and I felt I needed quite a liberal amount to keep it from sticking. I served it with wild rice, but I think I will try it with white rice next time.

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
I used finely diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce and made a chunkier version of the sauce. It was a big hit with my family. *** EDIT *** Since my initial review, I have made this recipe several times, and still love it! It's my regular enchilada sauce recipe now.

Coconut Tofu Keema

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
I added raisins and nuts to the rice I served with this, and the meal was delicious. Will definitely make this one again!

Carrot Ginger Creme

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2006
I made this soup with soymilk instead of the half and half, and I doubled the ginger, since I like a real bite to this sort of thing. This was just the ticket as a cold remedy!

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
I substituted crushed tomatoes for the tomato soup, and used coconut milk as the milk in this recipe. It yields a nice, mild curry, which was a good introduction to Indian food for my boyfriend, but I found it somewhat too mild for my taste, and added some sriracha chile sauce. I'll definitely make this recipe again, but will continue to experiment with different additions, like cayenne pepper and/or raisins.

Melanie's Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
This recipe served as a very handy framework when I had to come up with lunch using the ingredients my boyfriend had in his pantry. I still had to make a few substitutions, and I used chopped up veggie burgers instead of actual meat, but I came up with a very nice chili. I will continue to use this recipe as a guideline, but probably still tinker with it, 'cause that's just what I do!

Black-Eyed Pea and Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
I made this using a vegetarian bacon substitute and vegetable bouillon instead of chicken. It was excellent, and definitely a recipe I will make again!

Exotic Indian Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
I made this with black-eyed peas for New Year's Day, and I will definitely make this one again. I substituted bagged cole slaw mix for the shredded cabbage, which made it extremely quick and convenient.

Spinach Ziti

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
Wow! This recipe is great, and it adapts well to ingredient substitutions. I doubled the cream cheese (used low-fat) and added some minced garlic because I was using plain diced tomatoes instead of Italian-style. This dish is an excellent way to sneak some vegetables into my family. I'll definitely make this again.

These are a nice change from the ginger/glazed carrots routine.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
I was working out of my boyfriend's pantry, so I had to substitute light brown sugar for the white sugar. I used neufchatel (reduced fat cream cheese), and was very generous with the extra crunchy peanut butter, since I didn't have chopped nuts to add. These are delicious, and I'll definitely make them again sometime, but I think I will use creamy peanut butter and not add the extra nuts, for a smoother texture.

Baked Corn II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
I omitted the sugar and added one small can of diced green chiles. This was a wonderful way to come up with a tasty side dish using ingredients I had on hand. This is one recipe I could see myself making again and again, in a number of different versions.

Poppy Seed Biscuit Ring

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
I had to halve this recipe, so I made it in a loaf pan instead of in the ring shape. I was using those really large flaky layer biscuits, and had a very hard time getting them cooked in the middle. Next time, I will bake at a lower temperature, for a much longer time. Once they were done, they were delicious. We had them with a cabbage soup, and that seemed to be a good combination.

Indian Peas And Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
I was using up leftovers, so I tried this with shredded cabbage in place of the peas. It was very, very good, but I will experiment with adding a little "heat" to it next time.

Lemon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I made this with a vegetable bouillon cube instead of chicken. Otherwise, I stuck to the recipe. It was a good soup, but I might add a little cayenne next time to give it some more "zip."

Mulligatawny Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
Making this soup was a good mother-daughter activity, which lessened the amount of work per person considerably. I don't have a regular blender, so I used one of those stick/immersion blenders to puree the soup-- it worked fine, leaving a few little chunks in the soup, which I think adds a nice texture. Daughter (age 12) has declared this the best soup ever, in the whole wide world! It is very, very good, and worth the trouble of rounding up and preparing all the spices.

Camper's Breakfast Hash

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
I made a vegetarian version of this using vegetarian sausage links. I had diced potatoes on hand, so I used them instead of shredded, and I used garlic butter because I had some left over that I wanted to use up. This recipe is a definite keeper! I'm looking forward to trying this with various cheeses and flavors of vegetarian sausage. I doctored mine with a little hot sauce, but my son loved it just as it was, right out of the pan.

Indian Style Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
Having read the reviews, I reduced the amount of cumin seed in this recipe to 1 teaspoon. I needed to add more water as it cooked, but I often have that issue with my cooktop. I will probably add a little extra cinnamon next time, just as a matter of personal preference. We had this with mulligatawny soup, and it was an excellent combination.
