Naan

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I made this as written. I found it too sweet, so next time I will reduce the sugar. It seemed too dry with the amount of flour, but came out okay. I will probably reduce the flour a little next time, just to see. And, I will probably experiment with the baking soda suggestions, to see how that works.

Escarole Siciliano

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
Disclaimer: I'm not a fan of escarole! But my CSA keeps sending it to me, so I keep searching for uses. I think this is my favorite so far, as I'll finish it without groaning inside. The recipe is fine. I made no changes to the recipe, although I'd wanted to add garlic, and think it would work well with the dish.

Crispy Turnip 'Fries'

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
Maybe I did something wrong, but these were nothing like fries. They were solid and almost juicy inside, and not crunchy outside. Almost roasted? I won't be repeating the recipe.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
I didn't care for this. WAY too sweet for my taste (I did use red apples, but I cut the sugar back to 3/4 cup white and brown). It also left a lot of liquid behind. I don't think the water is necessary.

Spicy Yogurt Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
It does have just a bit of spice, as advertised. I used it on a broccoli-carrot slaw, and it was good, but really thick (I used greek yogurt). It is a good baseline, and there's plenty of room to spice it up more.

Jam Kolaches

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
The cookie part of this is terrific! I wanted to use up some jam (not a fan of it on toast), so I made these. They were really easy and quick, although I need to work on presentation. I'll make them again.

Colcannon

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
I was a bit scared of this, because although I had heard it was great and was very curious, it just seemed odd. Slimey cabbage mucking up mashed potatoes? However, I had nothing to fear, it was delicious. I used red cabbage as I had it on hand, and wow! The colors were crazy the night I made it, leftover seemed to intensify! (I'll try and post a photo.) Anyway, it's a flexible recipe, and I'm sure I'll be using it again and again.

Scalloped Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
I really enjoyed this. I was afraid of it being bland, but I didn't have that problem at all. I attempted to temper the eggs a bit, before mixing them in and also didn't have the scrambled egg problem. My only change next time is to try and make it a bit healthier--nonfat milk, less butter, and maybe using breadcrumbs instead of crackers.

Pea 'n' Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Let me start by saying I probably should have known better than to make this. I don't eat a lot of mayo-based salads. And this was mayo-drenched! It also didn't have much stand-out flavor. I'll probably add a potato and some sriracha to soak up the mayo and give it some umph. Just not my thing.

Fat Free Refried Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
A good base. As others said, I prefer cooking my onions and garlic first, and everything a bit more blended. However, I will continue using this recipe. Thanks!

Garbanzo Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
Despite the positive reviews, I found it bland and uninteresting. I used a clove of garlic (blended with the garbanzos), dried rosemary, and omitted the pasta as I didn’t have anything appropriate on hand. I don’t think any of these changes made an important difference. I’ll probably use the rest as a pasta sauce, maybe adding some olives, or something to give it a stronger flavor.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
This tasted fine (like other reviewers said, it won't knock your socks off). I prefer my Mexican rice a bit drier, I might modify this with tomato paste next time, and add some jalapeno peppers.

Zucchini Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I agree with the other reviewers...it's BLAND. Not inedible, but definitely not a repeat!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
I used garlic and regular salt, and mixed the mozarella in with the rest of the cheeses. Excellent.

Curried Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
I like the basics, but I agree something was off in the recipe. I'll keep working with it, per other reviewers suggestions, because it's so easy and I like the curry...

Very good, very rich! Now I'll be experimenting to lower the fat/cholesterol!

Portobello Penne Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
Good, my bf loved it. You can easily substitute other veggies in, though I would actually add more spinach (unlike other reviewers).

Fire and Ice Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2006
Different, but good. I used 3/4 cup oil, and still had too much. Next time I'll use 1/2 cup.

Charlotte's Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
Nothing special--I'd roast the bell peppers and throw in some extra veggies next time.
