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!

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 :)

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I subbed butter for half the shortening and cut the salt in half. They came out really tasty!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
SO good. I did not get 30 cookies out of one batch, however, I might have made the fillings too big. It's just as well, that means there aren't as many for me to eat. A more labor intensive cookie than, say, chocolate chip (when using a cookie scoop), but really worth it for a special treat. Thanks!

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 ^_^

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 :)

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!

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!

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!

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!

Baked Tofu Bites

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
I was in a hurry to get these in the oven last night so I didn't read the helpful reviews that said to double most of the ingredients. Still, these little bites turned out tasty--dare I say slightly better cold the next day? They taste like bbq chicken (to me), and I will definitely make again, changing only the amount of marinade, and increase the marinade time to really get the full flavor. Thanks for a good, easy recipe!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2008
I made these using tofu. I grew up with Manwich stuff from a can, but this is much easier to make, and I had all the stuff already on hand. I halved the recipe since I didn't have a full pound of tofu, and added some small-diced zucchini ('til the season so I'm trying to get rid of it!). I couldn't wait the 30 minutes for it to simmer, so I just ate it as soon as it was warmed through, with dill pickle stackers on top. SOO yum and a new favorite, easy recipe :)

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
I tried out this recipe based on its high rating and various reviews, however, mine didn't turn out as stellar as other bakers have reported. I read one review where the person said the flavor was off or not good (something to that effect), and unfortunately I have to agree. Not sure if it needs a little more salt and less vanilla, maybe some almond extract? Thanks anyway :)

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
Flavor was chocolatey and delicious, however, I had issues with the actual structure of the cookie. I followed the recipe as written (though after reading a few other reviews wish I had reduced the fat), and the dough was really sticky. I baked the cookies for 10 minutes and let them cool on the pan, but they fell apart very easily (from being too soft). After the first two batches I added about 1/3 C. more flour, then the cookies wouldn't spread (they just came out little half-spheres). I think it's a recipe worth tweaking since the taste is so good, but as written I can only give it four stars.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2007
Easy and delicious -- what's more to it? Next time I will try adding herbs to the crust itself. Texture was great; a good standby recipe for pizza crust. Thanks!

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!

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 :)

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.

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.

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 :)
