Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
I made the recipe exactly as listed and it's delicious. I was a little hesitant about adding the onion, but it turned out to be the perfect balancer...keeps the vinegar from making it too sour and keeps the oil from making it too greasy.

Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Great soup for fall although I did have to tinker with some of the amounts. One and a half cups of veggie broth just wasn't enough liquid to boil the veggies.

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2011
Very good and easy to make. I did make some changes based on other reviewers: used chicken instead of veggie broth, double the amount of chili powder, and added a pinch of two of cumin. I paired it with toasted bread and a salad with smoked paprika vinaigrette (also found on the site). My roommate and I both loved it...definitely exceeded my expectations.

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
I've cooked this dish several times over the past few years. I like to add a tbsp or so of soy sauce and a healthy dash of sriracha. Be sure to cook it uncovered for best results. If not, the sauce comes out a little thin.

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
I thought this would make a good spread, so I was really surprised that it actually did taste very similar to a tuna salad. The only change I made is that my can of chickpeas was only 12oz. I served mine on wheat crackers with extra chopped scallions on top. This is a great vegetarian alternative. I will definitely make it again.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
I thought this recipe was great. I tweaked it a little to suit my taste, but didn't add any additional ingredients other than those listed in the recipe and it was fantastic. i'll definitely make it again.
