Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly but I'm not sure that my seeds turned out right. The sugar in the pan never really disolved, it just went gloppy. I turned the heat up a bit to try to get it right and the seeds started making loud popping sounds so I gave up and removed them from the heat. It was very messy, had way too much sugar, and you couldn't really taste very much of the spice as the sugar was too overpowering. The seeds are all gone, mind you! I do love sugar, and it was hard to stop eating them. But pumpkin seeds in general are very tough and chewey, and no amount of sugar or spice will mask that.

Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie II

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
This recipe is terrible. I followed the instructions almost exactly, the only thing i did differently was i used boullion instead of yeast extract. I also added a cup of water into the barley/lentil mixture before putting it in the oven because I was worried it would have been too dry. I was correct in doing so as all the water I added was absorbed. The coarseness of the lentils, barley walnuts in conjunction with the smoothness of the potato topping just doesn't work. It's chewey and completely throws me off of the rest of the dish. The only reason I didn't give this 1 star is that at least the flavour was half decent and the dish was marginally edible if you are starving and there is nothing left in your house.
