Tomato and Basil Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
Really a great recipe! I used ROMA tomatoes because they have less moisture, and they fried beautifully as well as kept the coating intact while baking nicely! I also kind of improvised a little - used half-n-half instead of milk, 4-cheese Mexican blend (shredded) instead of cheddar, and fresh basil instead of dried. I didn't layer the ingredients, except I did put the onions on the bottom instead of the top. I mixed the cheese and egg mixture together before pouring on top of the onions, and put the tomatoes on the very top. Came out super-lovely! Everyone loved it... DEFINITELY A KEEPER!

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
I really like the dressing - it's not too strong like some pasta salads. I've made this a number of times, now, and have used roma tomatoes instead of cherry. I added some garbanzo beans. Used fresh oregano. Reduced the olive oil to save fat calories. Traded red wine vinegar for white wine once, and I traded it for tequila lime vinegar another... always fabulous!

Runzas (meat pies)

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
Yes, these bring back memories from our time in Nebraska and our visits to the Runza Hut. When we were there, they were introducing a mushroom and swiss runza that we enjoyed a lot. I think we'll try adding mushroom and swiss to this recipe for an added twist - and, we may try using shredded beef instead of ground. For those who do juicing, this is a great way to use what's left of the cabbage after you've juiced it.

Pasta and White Beans Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I followed all the suggestions - adding some chili zip, the egg, the zucchini. My sister really loved the results, and it was really healthy; however, I had difficulty getting excited about this one. It seemed like it was a conglomeration of several different recipes all mixed together.

Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I followed this recipe exactly except I replaced chicken broth with vegetable stock, and we loved the results! The leftovers were fantastic used in a chicken/bean flour burrito with refried beans, lettuce, tomato, diced onion, monterey jack cheese and sour cream.(Possibly the leftovers were even better than the chili! How often do the leftovers eclipse the original meal?!) Yum!

Pinto Bean Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
At first this sounded a little odd, but what a great little spice cake this is! I agree with the others that you'd never guess there were beans in it because it came out nice and fluffy. We do like Kathy did and buy bulk organic beans; however, I pre-soak and can mine in a pressure canner and then puree what I need in a food processor at times like this. I liked how little butter this needed (fats)- probably due to the fact that the beans were used. In fact, the bean thing was so successful, it makes me wonder if the principle of using beans can be applied to any other types cakes. I'll be experimenting... :-)

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Absolutely MARVELOUS! I pureed the pintos using a food processor - worked great. I ran short of salsa and didn't have black beans handy, so I used finely diced onions and green peppers from our garden with red beans and didn't need the sour cream topping. I used sprouted grain tortillas (Ezekiel brand) and had no trouble whatsoever with sogginess. I also tried using the springform pan, but we have some perfect-for-this round casserole dishes I'll use next time. Really, truly a marvel. Everyone loved it! I love the health it'll help create! Will be making this many times over...

Caramel-Pecan Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
My sister and I weren't too crazy about this pie. The crust came out sort of soggy, and the pumpkin filling was almost a custard/pudding consistency - which I wasn't expecting. The topping was good, but I didn't like the taste of the pumpkin filling. I wouldn't make it again.

Elderberry Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
This was a wonderful elderberry pie. Maybe a dash of lemon juice would enhance its flavor. Will definitely make again!
