Spinach Salad with Warm Bacon-Mustard Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
The dressing on this salad is so good. I poured some extra on some cooked potatoes the next day for an instant potato salad. Great recipe!

Beetroot Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
Just delicious, and the color looks almost supernatural. I only used a tablespoon of olive oil, and instead of onion I threw in a few jalepeno peppers. I also used canned chick peas instead of dried, plus added some of the can juice. A tasty and unique hummus!

Parsley-Pistachio Rice Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
What a find! This recipe is fantastic! I'm a fan of tabbouleh, and this recipe contains a lot of the ingredients found in that. My plan was to make this for my family, but I just proceeded to eat the entire bowl myself. I made it with plain, long-grain white rice (didn't have basmati). And next time I make it (which will be today), I think I'll omit the olives because as much as I love them, they tended to dominate (rather than compliment) the other flavors in the salad. Adding pistashio nuts is a stroke of genius! Thanks for the great recipe!

Split Pea Soup Atu

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2004
The hot pepper sauce and red pepper flakes give this soup terrific zing. I omitted the milk entirely (lactose intolerant). A really excellent recipe.

Gel's Green Beans and Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2004
This was surprisingly good. My whole family loved it (except my 13 year old, who finds just about everything "too spicy"). The ginger gives it a wonderful flavor. I used frozen whole green beans, and it came out great. I don't know if adding the flour is necessary--it makes the dish congeal a bit better, but it makes it somewhat stickier, too. Next time I might try omitting the flour. I will DEFINITELY make it again, though. So easy, and so good!! Thanks!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2004
This was outstanding. The only thing I might change next time I make it is to add less sugar. The dressing was a bit too sweet. Otherwise, this is a terrific recipe.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
My goodness, this is good! I used organic rice vinegar, reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup, and used honey mustard instead of regular mustard (but I'm sure it would be great with any kind of mustard). Also added some white pepper for extra zing. Just delicious.

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
Wow, these are amazing. I used Soy Garden instead of butter (lactose intolerant) and that worked fine. Also used candied ginger instead of crystalized ginger. You can get it at Trader Joe's for about 1/4 the cost of the crystalized and it's just as good. And instead of mincing the fresh ginger, I just grated it, which saved a lot of time. The only problem I have with these is trying not to eat the entire batch in one sitting. Too yummy! Thanks for the recipe!

Cilantro and Garlic Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
This is delicious. Instead of deep frying, I simply sauted the potatoes first in a little olive oil. When they were nearly done I added the cilanto (only used about 1/4) and garlic and continued to saute. Then added cumin, lemon, and salt. Fabulous flavors! Thanks!

Stuffed Pepperoncini

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
Just delicious! Very time-consuming and messy, though, and I cut the tops off the peppers as other reviewers also suggested, but I would make them again. I also omitted the milk, and used dairy-free cream cheese. I poured out nearly all of the bacon fat before cooking the shallots. Had some leftover filling, which I spread into celery stalks. The filling is great as a dip in itself. Thanks for this yummy recipe!

Rosemary Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
This is now my favorite meatloaf recipe, with (of course) a few adjustments. I prefer quick cooking oats to breadcrumbs, so I use those instead. For the sauce, I use 1/3 cup catsup, 1-2 tbs brown sugar, and 1-2 tbs Dijon mustard. I don't add the sauce until the meatloaf has cooked for about 1/2 hour. Then I pour off the fat, turn the meatloaf over onto a baking dish, slather the sauce all over it, and finish cooking. I think the addition of balsamic vinegar, plus the fresh rosemary, is what really sets this meatloaf apart. Great recipe!!

Moroccan Lentil Soup

This soup is AMAZING. The spices are exotic and interesting without being overpowering. Change nothing, except maybe add a little salt. YUM!

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
This is sublime. I made it exactly as written and it was absolutely delicious. With apologies to vegans, other times I added some ground turkey to it and it was also delicious. Great recipe! Thanks.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
This is my go-to slow cooker recipe. It's always delicious, and every time I make it for company, I'm asked for the recipe. I omit the bouillon because when I'm browning the meat it produces plenty of flavorful liquid, which I just pour into the crock pot, and the teaspoon of salt provides enough saltiness. Sometimes I add a chopped red pepper for a little variety and extra veggies. It's great over brown rice. A real keeper.

Georgian Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
These were rather sour tasting, and the vinegar (or perhaps the 15 minutes of cooking time) changed the color of the green beans to a dull, unappealing shade. The taste of cilantro wasn't perceptible at all. Nobody at my house liked them.
