Cherry Cheezecake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
I loved this! I had extra blocks of Nasoya extra firm tofu on hand and wanted to try something new. I made my pie in a pre-made pie-crust and left out the lemon aspect all together. I combined it with the chocolate tofu dream pie (a pudding pie) recipe on the site and made it chocolate cherry cheesecake. It was simple, I just added some baking coacoa into the mix (about 1/2 - 1/3 cup). I also used fat-free cream cheese since having dairy wasn't a problem for me. Thank you so much for this recipe! I was skeptical at first, but I will definitely make it again. Even thinking of a gluten-free version for my sister!

Alla Checca

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I loved the adaptability of this recipe. You can really play around with it to suit your own tastes. I didn't have fresh basil on hand, so I just skipped that part, and I still thought it was great. I even added crab in with it and it was great for seafood & pasta. I also was not a fan of the raw garlic, so I just picked must of it out. Perhaps will try a minced garlic jar next time for a lighter flavor. Will definitely make again. Most convenient part was that the sauce could be prepared and then left alone to marinate-I went out shopping!

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
I really enjoyed this salsa, and I'm not much of a mango fan as is. I used it with tortilla chips and as a topping for tacos! There was a tad too much oil for my liking, so I think next time I'll just skip that.

Stuffed Cabbage

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
This is just like the recipe I remember as a kid! Very good taste, and I loved the freezing the head of cabbage idea, however make sure you have enough time to thaw it before cooking--mine took about 9 hours. So, you may be better off steaming if you are in a time crunch. The only difference I made in the recipe was not cooking the rice. As stated before, it cooks in the oven, so there isn't any need. I also used tooth picks on some of my rolls b/c teh ones with smaller leaves started unrolling a bit. And, like the others, I used a family size can of tomato soup b/c I wanted extra sauce for the white rice side dish. Will make again, but next time will check them more frequently in the oven because mine got done slightly quicker.

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
thanks so much for this recipe!! I found myself w/o the garlic bread sprinkle I usually make garlic bread with, so I searched for a recipe here. I did however, leave out the paprika and parmesan (not a fan) and substituted garlic powder for garlic salt (don't keep that on hand). I used fresh garlic in Country Crock spread on Italian bread--it tasted great! Wonderful compliment to my lasagna. Thanks!

Chicken Potato Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
Quick meal and doesn't require many ingredients. I have always used italian dressing on the chicken, but it was great on the potatoes as well. I paired it with some asparagus--tasted great!

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2006
I really didn't care for the smell of this meal at all, but the taste was pretty good. I would prefer next time to use water chestnuts or something else over cherries however. The only changes I made was leaving out the onions (do not care them) and using a Honey Sake Teriyaki sauce rather than honey and teriyaki separately. I also I added some corn starch powder for extra thickness. I liked the dressing a lot and will be making some extra just to have on hand for salads. I would infact, prefer this as a salad. I used red lettuce, which did not hold up as a wrap. But making a little less for the top of a salad would be great!! I also threw in some baby corn (nuggets not spears) since I had some extra sauce.

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2006
Thi dish was just okay. I think you really have to find the right main dish to pair it with in order for it to work. I found it to be rather bland (coconut flavor was very subtle) and it sat heavy afterwards. I tried it both warm and cold. Personally, I preferred it cold, but at that point would rather have rice pudding than this mixture. I added extra sugar from 1 tsp to 2-3 tsp, but other than that, kept the recipe the same. I don't think I would make this again because of how heavy it felt after eating. Not worth all the calories and extra fat. but it was fun to try something new!!
