Broccoli Ham Ring

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
This recipe was in a "Cookin' the American Way" cookbook back in the mid-90's. While my Mom sold the products, she would go to the houses where the party was hosted and cook this. Making this again brought back some great memories. I'm a vegetarian now, so I used Worthington's Wham (which is so much like ham that it's quite creepy). I also used yellow onion instead of green. Be careful when putting the cresent roll in a ring. If you overlap them too much, the thick spots will not cook all the way through. While shopping for cresent rolls, I recommend reading the nutritional facts and try to find the one with the least trans fat (all have it, but some have minimal amounts).

Dutch Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I just made this and it turned out pretty good! I used apples from the apple tree in my parents backyard. It was very simple to make. I added a little bit of cinnamon to the apples before putting them into the crust. While I didn't like the bottom crust (it cooked up too hard), the apples and the top were perfect! I will definately be making this again!

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
This recipe is delicious! I did make some modifications though. I used purple, red, and gold potatoes (a mix from Trader Joe's). I thought the amount of potatoes the recipe called for was too much (I recommend using only half) and the spinach should be doubled. Next time, I'll add cooked mushrooms and tomatoes.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
The only trouble I had was beating the butter and chocolate mix in with the cold milk and vanilla. I ended up just adding 3 cups of powdered sugar in before the other ingredients were mixed together. It turned out perfectly too! I agree with others when they say 3 cups is about the right amount to add, although you probably could go as low as 2 1/2. I frosted the "Dark Chocolate Cake I" from this site with this recipe. They went well together.

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
I made this cake for a birthday party and it was a big hit! I accidently used 11-inch pans, but it worked out fine, just cut a few minutes off the cook time. This is a great substitute for the trans-fatty box cakes (as long as you don't add trans-fat margarine). For the frosting, I used the "Chocolate Frosting I" from this site. UPDATE: I made this recipe vegan by substituting the butter for trans-fat free vegan margarine (Nucoa or Smart Balance Light) and using 3 tbsp applesauce for each egg. It turned out even better than the original recipe because the applesauce made it VERY moist!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
WOW! This recipe is very impressive. I've been a vegetarian for almost 3 years and I never would have thought garbanzo beans could taste like tuna! I drained and washed the beans before I mashed them. This recipe is also great because it can be made vegan with ease. Next time, I may add celery to it too! I've actually had the ingredients to make this recipe for about a month now, but I've been too afraid to try it. I'm so glad I did! This recipe is going into my personal recipe book! Thank You for sharing this great recipe!

Best Bruschetta Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
This is one of the best Bruschetta recipes I've ever had! It tasted exactly like the one my boyfriend and I had on our anniversary at an upscale restaurant in San Diego. VERY simple to make and not expensive either! I served this on Easter to two French friends who absolutely loved it! Serve it on toasted french bread.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2007
These muffins turned out very good! I made 9 chocolate chip muffins and 3 cranberry muffins with raw sugar on top. They look very impressive and are super easy to make! Plus, no special trip to the store to get the ingredients, I have everything I need already in my home. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
This recipe is delicious! I used a little extra broth because it did cook up FAST. I only ended up cooking the "mixture" for about half of the time. Great dish to serve with a nice salad (spring mix if my favorite). I served this pilaf at my boyfriends family gathering and almost every single person there loved it and asked for the recipe! I recommend using Swanson broth as well (other broths have failed me with this recipe). Also, I found that using frozen asparagus works out better if you don't like the crunch of fresh (or the price). The last time I made this recipe, I only had frozen from Trader Joe's. I steamed it for about 8 minutes and it was perfect! (It was also only $1.99 compared to $5 and up). When it's cooking, make sure you keep stiring it so it cooks evenly and does not burn. Make sure you do add pepper to it and a little salt (although it's not necessary since the broth is loaded with sodium).

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
This is my favorite potato recipe, by far! I served it with vegetarian "meat"loaf. The potatoes come out crispy and PERFECTLY seasoned. I used sea salt instead of table salt and excluded the dill (because I didn't have any). This is the first recipe I've ever tried where if no modifications were made, this recipe would still turn out perfect! Great recipe, Janet! Thank You for sharing!

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2007
I thought these cupcakes were pretty good! I decided to try a different way of filling the cupcakes. I put the cream cheese mixture in a sandwich bag, cut a large hole, and squeezed the mixture into the center of the cupcakes. It was pretty successful, but the chocolate chips were clumping together a lot. I recommend adding the cream cheese filling my way and adding the chocolate chips with your fingers.

Quick Breakfast in a Pita

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Not bad at all! I added too much potato, but that was my own fault. I added ketchup and guacamole to mine. Yum! :) Very easy too!

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This is the best soup recipe I have ever found. It took me about 3 tried to get it just right. The first time it was very stringy (used too much of the asparagus bottom) and the second time it had flour lumps in it (make sure flour is desolved before bringing to a boil). I bought the asparagus ready to use (the bottoms cut off) at Trader Joe's. That fixed the stringy problem. I also used a steamer to cook the asparagus (for about 12 minutes) and the onions (threw them in at about 6 minutes). From there, I put that into the blender with 1/2-3/4 c. vegetable broth. Everytime I make it, it's gone by the end of the day. My family loves it and so do my co-workers.
