Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
Even with extra apples, this was much too sweet. I wish I'd read some of the reviews about reducing the sugar. Other than the sweetness, this was just okay. Sorry, I don't think I'll be making this one again.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2003
Fantastic! I took the advice and suggestions of previous reviewers, as well as making my own modifications. Used a full cup of Earth Balance non-hydrogenated "margarine," instead of doing half shortening. Don't care for the taste of shortening. Second, in place of the 2 eggs, I used 1/4 c. water (add a little more if needed). Third, I doubled the cinnamon sugar mixture, because I ran out. Fourth, I baked the cookies at 350 F, and found that they were perfect at 8 minutes. Absolutely yummy. An added plus: those who can't have any dairy and/or eggs will be able to have some as well. My mum used the exact same recipe I used here, but added the 2 eggs instead of the 1/4 c. water. People couldn't tell the difference between the two! Thanks, Mrs. Siggs. :o)

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2003
We loved it. The roasted red peppers made the hummus such a pretty color, and added another dimension of flavor. The only thing I did differently was to add in some light olive oil as I was blending in the proccesor. (Made the mixture smoother, and it came together better.) Thanks.

Cranberry Chutney I

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
I made this for Thanksgiving 2002, and really enjoyed it. Beats the jiggly canned stuff any day! Only things I changed were to use 2 T. balsamic vinegar instead of the cider vinegar, and craisins instead of the raisins. I also added a bit of orange zest, but that was because I happened to have some on hand. It would be just as good w/o it. Thanks! :o)

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2003
We absolutely loved this, and wouldn't hesitate to make it again. The changes I made: used canned Jackson Wonder Beans and Scarlet Runner Beans, and plan to use them in the future, as well. As suggested by others, I used frozen sweet corn instead of canned, and used green onions instead of onion. Added some lime juice, 2 cloves fresh garlic, salt/pepper, chilli powder, cumin, and fresh chopped cilantro. The cilantro really brought out the other flavours. If possible, use fresh tomatoes and fresh jalapenos. (Membranes and seeds removed.) It's so much tastier! Used half a red bell pepper and half a green bell pepper for added color. Used Newman's Own Light Italian. Quite a bit of chopping, but more than worth it. Yumm!

Cowboy Cookies III

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2003
Loved the cookies, and so did the rest of the family. Followed suggestions (sort by "most helpful") and baked at 375 F for 8-9 minutes, used 2 tsp. vanilla, decreased sugar to 3/4 c. EACH, used 1.5 sticks of Nucoa margarine (same thing as 3/4 c.) Shaped fairly large, oversized, round balls of dough, and used Ghiradelli and Tropical Souce brand chocolate chips. In place of the two eggs, I used a total of 1/4 c. water. (1 egg = 2 Tbs. water) If mixture is still a bit dry, add just enough water for it to come together. This way, even those with dairy/egg allergies can have some! Baked on parchment paper, and also added small dashes of ginger and cinnamon to half the batch. Have already made two batches since discovering them a month ago. My mum makes the exact same recipe--but with eggs, and people don't know the difference. :o)

French Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2002
Wonderful! Took the freshly baked loaves to a family holiday meal, and people were disappointed that I had only made two loaves. Both were gone in record time!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2002
Pretty good pumpkin bread. Left out the nutmeg, and reduced the sugar to just under two cups. Used my regular flax seed/water mixture in place of the eggs, and it worked just fine. Will try adding a chopped apple and more pumpkin next time. Less salt as well. Thanks.

Danny's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2002
Quick and easy? Yes. Good? Not what we had in mind. Very flat taste and dry. Not creamy at all, and did not reheat for leftovers very well. Sorry, NOT impressed!

Vegan Split Pea Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2002
Good but way too thick. Had to add extra salt/pepper to compensate for the extra liquid. The split peas I used gave the soup a sweet taste, so I'm going to try using different brands. Will make again with adjustments.

Delicious Apple Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2002
Really quick & easy to make. Much better than the premade stuff sold in the stores! I modified the recipe by using 3 large apples. Didn't bother to peel or shred them--just chopped and cored them. (Came from my apple tree, so I didn't have to worry about peeling. Extra fiber!) Adjusted the amount of water and sugar to taste, but used the full amount of cinnamon called for. After the apples had cooked, I pureed the mixture in the food processor. **Used this applesauce in "Baked Oatmeal," which is also on this site. Used applesauce instead of the oil called for.**

Baked Oatmeal I

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2002
This was really yummy, and has already been requested twice! However, I modified the recipe to my family's tastes. As suggested by previous reviewers, I used homemade applesauce in place of the oil called for. Also added molasses, and used between 4-8 Tbs. water instead of eggs.(Didn't measure the amount of liquid. Just eyeballed it. I needed the extra liquid b/c I also added one large chopped apple, and 1/2 c chopped almonds.) Substituted almond milk for the milk, and used Rumford's non-aluminum baking powder. I omitted the raisins and used a handful of dry cranberries instead. Omitted the brown sugar topping, and added more cinnamon, as well.

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2002
This was very good. Definitely will make this one again! I left out the nuts and nutmeg. Pressed the zucchini to get some of the liquid out, and added extra orange zest. Thanks!

Beth's Peach-Nectarine Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2002
The muffins were very light, but did not have an intense peach-nectarine flavor. Very bland. I also think that I might have added too much of the nectarine-peach combo. The muffins were *too* moist for me. One nectarine and one peach yielded 3 cups of fruit for me. It would be helpful to have measurements for the fruit, because sizes and amounts will vary. Thanks for the opportunity to have tried something new, but I will not be making this again.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2002
Great tasting focaccia. Like many of the previous reviewers, I adapted the recipe for my needs. It was a hit with my family, but next time, I would add more than 1 tsp. of salt. I used 1 Tbs. (each) FRESH oregano, basil, thyme, & added rosemary. Also used 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, and added about 2 T. of some leftover pesto I had on hand. Placed all of this in my bread machine (dough cycle), and forgot about it. After the machine beeped, took the dough out and proceeded with the focaccia as instructed. Sprinkled cornmeal on the bottom of my baking sheet before placing dough on top, shaped, and used toppings. Sprinkled with the 2 cheeses, tomatoes, garlic, and olives. Baked in the oven at 450 F. Family devoured the whole thing! Yikes... ;o)

Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2002
Yum! Absolutely scrumptious! I didn't add any parsley, and adjusted the oil. Also added salt.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2002
This was very a very good (and simple!) dressing to make. The only thing I did differently was to use honey dijon stone ground mustard. I have also previously tried the dressing with the regualar mustard, but my family and I prefer the dijon. Thanks!

Spicy Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2002
I would've given this salsa at least 4 stars, if it had not been for the overpowering taste of the grated ginger. The ginger taste was too strong for the delicate flavors of the peaches and mangoes. I'll try this one again, minus the ginger...then it will be great! Also, half the recipe is *more* than enough for my family of three.

Tomato Pesto Batter Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2002
This bread was okay, but I was hoping for the flavor of the basil to come through more than it did. I could taste the sun dried tomatoes much more than the herbs. Oh well. Not a bad bread, but just not what I was expecting. If nothing else, thanks for the opportunity to try something new!

Michelle's Peanut Butter Marbled Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2002
These were WAY too greasy, and 1 c. of melted margarine was too much. The brownies were literally oozing with grease. I plan to try them again with less margarine. The brownies would've been rated tops, if not for the problem with the amount of margarine. :o)
