Sara's Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Quite good. I put the sugar and vanilla to dissolve with the hot coffee and don't bother with the boiling water. Once it chilled in the fridge, I added 1 cup of 1% milk since I'm not crazy about cream. Will make again -- thanks!

Indian Sweet Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2000
Very simple to make. I substituted 1/4 of the flour with whole wheat pastry flour and liked the "nutty" taste that resulted. Very similar to chapatti, just sweeter.

Hot Fudge Sundae Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2000
I used soy milk and almonds with good results. However, I was surprised by how much fudge sauce there was at the bottom! The cake itself was pretty good, chocolate-y and without being too sweet, but with the fudge sauce on top of it? It became overpoweringly sweet for my tastes. Ice-cream or sorbet on top of that? No way! I can see where kids would like it, but I don't think I'd make it again for adults without cutting back on the sugar. If you like super sweet cakes, you will like this one as is, but if your tastes run to the less sweet and more "tea bread" style, you aren't going to like it.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2000
I agree with another reviewer -- the nutty, slightly sweet taste of this bread is very reminiscent of the Arnold brand wheat bread. I mixed and kneaded the dough in large Dutch oven, and then let it rise in an upside down plastic cake server I had greased so clean-up was very easy -- no messy counters! I also made 2 loaves and split the dough for the last loaf into a 12-hole muffin tin for large rolls. It worked out fine. Very tasty -- definitely a keeper! Thanks!

Sweet Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
My fav carrot salad always has pineapple in it! So glad to see someone posted it. I've used maple syrup or sugar in place of the honey and Nayonaise to make it vegan before -- still turns out good. If the crushed pineapple seems too runny, go with tidbits.

Fruity Party Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2005
Good all-juice blend. Does tend to separate if you go with organic juices so be sure to serve from proper punch bowl and not pitcher. Easier to stir up in punch bowl.

Zucchini Brunch Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I helped my 5 year old make it with 1 zucchinni and 1 yellow crookneck squash. She can't used a sharp knife, so we grated it instead. Baked up nicely with a light quiche-like texture in a glass 8x8 pan.

A Number One Egg Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
Not enough sugar... this thing is HUGE. It was as wide as my half sheet pan when made as a braided round wreath... so 13 inches in diameter. Baking time is too hot and too long. I did NOT preheat based on reviews warning about it. I put it in and started at 375 deg and after 20 min I started to worry, so I cranked it to 350 and went another 10 min for a total of 30 min baking. Then I let it cool. It was fine, but a little darker on top than I like. Very good texture and airy though. Also a nice yellow color and easy dough to work with. Next time I am going to try with 1/2 cup sugar, butter instead of oil, and 350 deg for 30 min or 325 for the 40 min.

Risotto with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Mozzarella

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2001
I scaled this for 4 servings and found it each person could have a generous 2 cups. I opted for vacuum packed sun-dried tomato rather than oil packed and used nonstick cookware to cut back on the fat. Lower fat cheeses also. I chose to embellish since the listed version looked a bit plain. I added 2 oz chopped green onion, 1/4 tsp. oregano, garlic, and 1/2 tsp pepper. Capers would have been a welcome addition but I didn't have any on hand. I found this took extra water and about 35 min to be really done. The results were a hit because it was like "pizza rice!" Spouse suggested adding vegetarian "sausage" crumbles and instead of stirring in the cheese, put the rice in a casserole, cover with the cheese and slip under the broiler until melted so it really would be "pizza rice." Definitely would make this again.

Eggplant with Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Not bad, but next time I'd have to make again using fresh mince garlic. This much powdered garlic gave the sauce a texture I do not like. The flavor was good but the grit was weird.

Avocado Quick Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Just "ok." Moist, dense, bread, pleasant enough. I cut the sugar down to 1.5 cups and found that sweet enough. Nice to use up avocado, but give me carrot quick bread any day.

Applesauce Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I've made this cake twice. Both times I used Earth Balance vegan spread in place of the butter to make the cake vegan. The first time I used unbleached white flour and added one small grated zucchini. That combo worked out nicely. The second time I used 1 cup unbleached white flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour and changed it to Craisins instead of raisins. Also spread Tofuti "Better Than Cream Cheese" on it while it was hot from the oven. That worked out nicely too. A keeper -- thanks!

Caramel-Glazed Flan

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2004
Made this recipe as is and even forgot to get it out when the oven timer went off. It ended up in there for an extra half hour but was very forgiving and had no problems with it! My entire family loved it and we'd all given up flan as being too rich with the heavy cream and too cholesterol-laden with the whole eggs the usual recipe calls for. This was a welcome "light" version that didn't sacrifce any taste. Very mild and creamy vanilla -- mmm!

Apple-Cinnamon Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
This reminds me of apple brown betty and other bread pudding-like desserts. So I halved it, baked for 40-45 in an 8x8 glass pan, and served it with hard sauce. It was good and served 4 people well. I also used 5 slices of Arnold Whole Wheat bread since I didn't have french bread and it worked out fine.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
To make this a crepe style variation on the Chinese "scallion pancakes" I skipped the milk and used all water. I also added minced green onion to the batter. When done, cut into wedges and then dipped into equal parts soy sauce and vinegar. Done this way the scallion pancakes don't have to be kneaded and spiral-rolled so it is that much faster. It turned out quite good. Thanks!
