Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
Looks awesome! Will have to try this next year. I love the fake blood effect and the "glass" doesn't seem so hard to make.

Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Ok, I knew this was going to be a tough sell on me going in but I hate to say that I really didn't like it at all. I have a sweet tooth but this was just too sweet for a cornbread for me.

Chocolaty Pecan Pie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
I made these, following the recipe with the exception of subbing walnuts that I had on hand for the pecans. The topping was fine, but the base, it just wasn't good. I was going to follow my gut and use a smaller pan and increase bake time. If I do make these again I will do that.

Lavender Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
I just made these. As one reviewer noted the dough is very floury and as a result comes out being dense. I treated the lavender buds I had like a dried herb; I used a half tablespoon. The lavender is a nice, soft touch, but I would have preferred a less dense dough. It was such a quick recipe perhaps I will try again and make some adjustments.

I've made this a few times for friends, exactly as the recipe is, and it has been gobbled up.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
I found it yummy, despite the fact that I am not a big cucumber fan. I added a little white onion to the mix. A little heat, perhaps a jalapeno or some cayenne powder, would probably make it taste even better.

Mexi Hominy

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
My ratio was a little off, as I only had one can of hominy. I also used three small heirloom tomatoes rather than a can, in addition to garlic powder. Still the recipe turned out well. I would have liked some heat, though

Unique Fruity Green Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Simply delicious. I did make a few omissions but it still came out great. I don't like canned mandarins, so I left those out, as well as the almonds just to cut back on the fat. I cut the dressing amount probably in half, eyeballing most ingredients, so it was dressed lightly. I think it would have been too oily if I had used the whole cup of oil. The banana worked surprisingly well in this salad. I will make it again, perhaps splurging on the almonds.

Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Just made it and it was quick and delicious! I tweaked it a bit, a la some other followers. I omitted (okay, forgot) the tomato, add a bit of seasoning (salt and pepper), used a dash of olive oil and used a quarter cup total vinegar, the majority red wine.

Fruited Tofu Curry Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
I should have followed the advice of other raters and sauteed the tofu. Boiling it didn't make it too tasty. Otherwise a pretty decent recipe.

Tropical Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
I made this for a potluck at work a few weeks ago and it was a hit! One of my coworkers told me the next day that she would buy the ingredients that I needed to make it again. And she did a few days later.

Pasta With Veggies In a Tahini and Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
I wish I would have read the comments before I tried this. I knew it was a tough audience, my dad. Way too much water in the recipe. Otherwise it was good
