Zucchini Cream Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2005
Would have been better if it hadn't been SO SWEET!! I love pies and sweets but whoa momma...it's zucchini-hinted diabetes! If I ever make again I will definately be cutting the sugar in half. I was also worried it wouldn't set (just kept boiling in the oven), but after it cooled it set up quite nicely. Thanks!

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
Recipe turned out excellent...however, I used the full pound of pasta (should have read the reviewers suggestions first!) and it soaked up nearly all of the sauce. I "veganized" the recipe using soy-based creamer and "Tofurky" sausages, and it still tasted great! I will definately make this again, just with a little less pasta. Thanks for a great recipe!

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
I followed this recipe nearly to a T (just subbed non-animal ingredients to make vegan) and it came out...squishy. Maybe I should have baked for 20 minutes? I will definately try to make again...but now I have a pumpkin-y, floppy log in my freezer :(

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
I made these cookies (for a second time) and they were just as good as the first time I tried the recipe. I cut the recipe in half and used 1/2 applesauce 1/2 Earth Balance vegan 'buttery' sticks; reduced the sugar by 1/4 C. and used 1/2 C. Whole Wheat flour. I also used 1.5 C. of chocolate chips. Not too sweet, great texture, and still a keeper!

Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
Cookies taste great; I used Peanut Butter & Co.'s White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter. However, I only got about 30 cookies out of the recipe. Maybe it was the cookie scoop I used instead of "rounded teaspoons". Still a keeper!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2006
Halved this recipe; used Tofutti "Better than Cream Cheese" (vegan substitute) and Earth Balance sticks. It turned out great and was a nice compliment to the (veganized :P) "A-Number-1 Banana Cake" recipe from this site (which is a tad on the SWEET side). Thanks for an easy recipe!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
I "veganized" this recipe (no eggs and/or dairy); I also cut back on the sugar, probably 1/4 less than called for total (but added 1/2 C. dark chocolate chips). The batter was really sweet to me (the beauty of vegan baking -- 100% SAFE raw batter :P!!), but after all was said and done the cake really "mellowed" out after about a day. I frosted it with [vegan] "cream cheese" frosting and the two went perfectly together. I will definately make this again ^_^

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Made this about two hours ago... had a piece nice 'n' warm from the oven; now I can't stop picking at it! TOO good!! Like some other reviews I reduced flour (used WW Pastry Flour instead of White), increased blueberries, and used evaporated cane juice in the topping. I also only ended up sprinkling on about 1/2 of the topping and that was plenty. I will DEFINATELY make this again. AWESOME!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
I will give this recipe five stars, based on my alterations, though I believe the foundation recipe is a great one. I doubled the recipe and used 2.5C fresh blueberries overall; I used mostly WW Pastry flour, and reduced the amount of evaporated cane juice (for sugar). Also, I used the crumb topping from the 'blueberry buckle' recipe on this site. All in all, they turned out good for me. THANKS!

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2006
Just made it... couldn't keep out of it before it cooled :X I didn't use eggs/dairy and it still turned out fine with the subsitutions (also 2:1 WW Pastry Flour to AP Flour, evaporated cane juice for white sugar, 1:1 apple sauce/oil)... I added chocolate chips to one half; walnuts to all. Not overly strong with zucchini but still GOOD!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
Followed the recipe for the most part; added the suggested 1 Tbsp. extra flour (due to flat cookies) but instead mine came out of the oven just like I put them in -- little half-spheres. Oh, well. I dyed them pink for an all-girl dinner party and called them Sno-Ball cookies (like those snack cakes). Pretty good overall... recipe needs a little tweaking somewhere though...

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2006
I used 1/2 vegan margarine and 1/2 applesauce, evaporated cane juice for the white sugar, and egg substitute. Then, instead of nuts, I used soaked raisins and chocolate chips. I also added cinnamon to the dry mixture. This was a really good base recipe, easily veganized and something I will definately make again. I'm thinking next time dried cherries, walnuts, and dark chocolate chips will be good. Thanks :)

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2006
Sooooo good! I used an 8" frozen whole wheat pie crust. I left the skin on the Jonagold apples (color + fiber) and diced them so they would cook. Based on other reviews I used 3 Tbsp. of flour with apples (and they seem not too runny) and reduced the crumble topping by 1/3 (due to smaller crust). I couldn't wait for the pie to cool all the way so I snuck and piece and mmmmm how good! Definately going to use this recipe again.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
WONDERFUL. I used part unbleached AP Flour, part Whole Wheat flour; 1/4 oil and 3/4 c. unsweetened applesauce and reduced the sugar to 2 cups. I also used Ener-G egg replacers. It was very moist and the spice was good. I will use this as my pumpkin bread recipe from now on :)

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2006
Boiling the cauliflower (or any vegetable) causes it to lose A LOT of its nutrients. Steaming really is the best method to preserve vitamins and minerals. Perhaps steaming the cauliflower over seasoned water or broth might give a little more flavor without sacrificing nutrition.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
I followed others' suggestions as to how to save the cookies from turning out flat, but they still spread in the oven. They don't look pretty but they taste great; thankfully none of my friends care when it comes to presentation so they'll be getting flat shortbreads for Christmas at any rate :)

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2006
SO easy :) I used vegan margarine and vegan blueberry "yogurt" instead of the sour cream (didn't have any substitute at the time) and it turned out great. I also added about a 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon to the dry mix. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2007
Great base recipe... I think next time I will take the advice of others and use more cocoa powder and less powdered sugar (I only made a half-batch this time) but it's still good. It goes great with the zucchini brownies (also from this site). Yum!

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
I halved the recipe and used a glass 8x8 pan, along with substituting unsweetened soymilk for dairy milk. I also added 1/3 c. frozen corn kernels and about 2 Tbsp. minced jarred jalepenos. The sweetness of the bread and corn compliment the heat from the jalepenos. This is a great base recipe--quick and easy and tasty :)
