High Protein Peanut Butter Balls

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Not bad and a good way to stave off a cookie/cake craving. I did skip the flax seed since I didn't have any on hand. I think it would benefit from a few additions -- maybe mini chocolate chips and/or raisins.

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I made this cake for a friend with a dairy allergy. It tasted pretty good - a lot like a boxed cake mix. It would work as a vegan cake as well. I improvised a non-dairy frosting of melted semisweet chocolate chips, 3 tbs brewed coffee, 1 tbs canola oil, and a little maple syrup for sweetener. Worked well together

Gelato

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
Excellent! I even managed to get it a pretty good consistency without using an ice cream maker. I followed instructions elsewhere to place in freezer and remove every 30 minutes to whisk back to creamy for 2 hours. Added 2 splashes of vanilla extract and 1 splash of almond extract for a tasty basic vanilla. Next is onto the flavors. Thanks for the recipe!

Cone Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
I filled my cones only 1/2 way and then topped them with actual ice cream instead of frosting. This was a great "cake and ice cream" treat.

Figs Oozing with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2004
Great combination of flavors. I didn't really follow the recipe but just cut a wedge in the figs, stuffed them with goat cheese, and placed them on the top rack of the grill for about 15 minutes. Very tasty.

Lemon Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
Tasty. I used lime zest instead of lemon on accident (sneaky yellow limes). Still quite good.

Balsamic Grape and Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I find it annoying when people rate a recipe that they have changed beyond recognition of the original, but I am prepared to be somewhat of a hypocrite since this recipe has not yet been reviewed. I made an altered version of this -- maintaining the grapes, walnuts, red onion, and balsamic vinaigrette. The flavors went well together and I added chopped chicken and some fresh thyme. I left out the other ingredients because I either didn't have them (radishes) or didn't think they were needed (raisins). Ended up quite tasty.

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
Tasty and easy. For the frosting, I substituted sour cream for butter. Delicious.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2005
I wasn't crazy about these cookies. Too dry for my preference. They weren't bad, necessarily, just less than what I hoped for considering all the good reviews.

Rhubarb Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Good and easy. I was uncertain about dumping the water mixture on top but it turned out great. I took the advice of others and reduced the sugar by about 1/2 cup and it was plenty sweet. I might cut back even more next time.

Pear Bread II

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
Great. I did modify a bit to my preferences (less sugar, more cinnamon, etc..) The major difference was that I grated the pears, which made it a nice and moist texture even though I decreased the oil by 1/3 cup. I also grated in a little fresh ginger.

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Easy and pretty tasty, considering I typically like my baked goods with butter and eggs. I took some suggestions posted in previous reviews: 1/2 cup cocoa, switched water for black coffee, and baked 20 minutes as cupcakes. I frosted them with melted chocolate chips plus a little canola oil and a splash of coffee.

Coconut Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
This recipe probably is very bland when made exactly as stated,but if you think of it as a base recipe and adjust to your spice preferences, it's a great start. I added chopped garlic, tumeric for color (because I don't like grey food) and ground chilli for spice.

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Good recipe. Nothing too spectacular. I think the quality/type of peanut butter probably makes a big difference and thus the variety of opinions on this one.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
These got rave reviews from those that tried them. I dipped half in white chocolate. Also, my strategy for keeping the dough manageable is to spritz my hands with a canola or olive oil spray.

MandelBread

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2004
Perhaps a little bland as is - dipped in chocolate makes a big difference.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
Great recipe. I substituted coconut oil for half of the butter and used dessicated coconut instead of flaked. I also made them into small balls and then flattened them between palms instead of simply dropping them.

Cocoa Banana Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Tasty and relatively easy. Whenever I have bananas that are a little past their prime, I put them in the freezer and then thaw them when I have enough to bake with. Easier than mashing bananas that aren't ready for baking.
