Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
No shortening! That's what I liked. I made these into bars by cooking the whole thing in a 7x11 dish at 375 for about half an hour. I have no patience for individual cookies. It worked great, even with just shy of a cup of peanut butter.

Honey Wheat Bread II

Reviewed: May 8, 2008
Love this recipe! Especially great when you're out of eggs and milk. I use brown sugar instead of honey and just make one big, irregular-shaped loaf instead. It has too cook just a little bit longer, but saves some trouble. I love how this has very little hands-on time.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
I halved 10 oz. cherry tomatoes, cooked a little bit of white onion in olive oil in the same pot I cooked the quinoa instead of green onion, added a bit of black pepper and didn't have any parsley. Still perfect, though I may cook some garlic in w/ the quinoa next time.

Lebanese-Style Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Great! Had to do a bit of a different spice combo due to what I had in the house, but I'd definitely make this again.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Delicious! I did half whole wheat flour and half white, used lactose-free skim milk + 1 tbsp. vinegar and it worked out fine. Agreed that I could use more swirly bits, but it was fine as it is!

Cranberry Nut Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
I've made something very similar to this, although I used only 1/2 cup of sugar and skipped the zest. This also works w/ half whole wheat flour.

Sweet Pepper Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
Cut off one cup of milk, and it was still a touch thin. I added some dried parsley and garlic flakes, but still felt like it needed something, so I added cheddar and monteray jack and that made it great. Next time I'll add crushed red pepper as well.

Macaroni And Cheese I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2007
I skipped the breadcrumbs, but did plenty of extra mozzarella on top. I also used a can of Italian-style tomatoes instead of regular and an extra clove of garlic. This was pretty good and it's easy to already have the ingredients around. I only baked it for around 35 minutes.

Macaroni with White Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
This made a HUGE amount of food-- I couldn't fit all of it into my 9x13 dish, so I ended up doing some of the macaroni w/ the meat mix, and then put some mac w/ sauce in a 7x11 dish and baked them at the same time. That was ok because my daughter isn't wild about beef anyway. I skipped the oil except for the sauce, and to the sauce, I added a chicken bullion cube. With meat and without, this was really good!

Spicy Tomato and Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
I added garlic, a chicken bullion cube and only had brown lentils to use. As with it seems every lentil recipe, I had to increase the amount of water. A very good soup, and quick to put together.

Lentil Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
This was good, though I didn't follow it exactly. I didn't have any carrots, so I upped the celery and added onion and garlic. I also added a tablespoon of yellow curry powder and used vegetable broth. I found that I had to add a lot of water to the lentils as they cooked. I also didn't have real potatoes, so I ended up adding some potato flakes to thicken up the soup a bit. At the end I added a splash of balsamic vinegar. I would reccomend some parmesan cheese and maybe some spinach added to this, but overall it was good. My husband and my 3 year old also liked it.

Red Wine Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
This is delicious-- almost has the consistency of a chocolate chip muffin, so I don't think frosting is necessary.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2007
This was pretty good. For whatever reason, the glaze didn't permeate that far into the salmon-- but we did salmon steaks, so that might have had something to do with it. Skipped the wine because we didn't have any, but otherwise kept it about the same. It's true, the balsamic vinegar does smell really, really strong while simmering, but the end flavor is not like that smell!

Lubia Polo (Green Bean Rice)

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
This was good! I skipped the rice-crisping because I don't have the right kind of pot. I also cut the rice down to 2 cups and adjusted the liquid accordingly. I took the advice of another reviewer and omitted the jalepeno, and for the spices I did 1 tbsp. turmeric, 1 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. curry, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Overall, it wasn't the greatest thing I've ever made, but it was pretty good!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
This was great... I didn't have any onion, so I used salsa instead of tomato sauce, and then did 1/2 tsp. garlic powder instead of garlic salt, since the salsa has enough salt and a bit of garlic. I also used veggie broth, since it's what I had. Easy and great with refried beans and cheese inside tortillas.

Easy Masoor Daal

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
The flavors in this were good, although I did only 1/4 tsp. of cayenne and did ground cumin instead of seeds. I cooked everything in the crock pot, adding just shy of 1 cup brown rice and doing about 5 cups of water. I let it cook all day on low and when the rice tasted done, I added some fresh chopped flat leaf parsley and chives. We ate it in tortillas and it was filling.

Honey Curried Roasted Chicken and Vegetables

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
This was delicious-- I was out of dijon mustard, so I had to use spicy brown and it worked great. I also had to sub 1 tsp. of onion powder, and did only 1/4 tsp. of salt. Instead of a whole chicken, I did about 1.5 lbs. of chicken breasts cut into strips. However, I still did the full amount of sauce, poured it over the chicken in a 7x11 glass dish, and baked in a 375 degree oven for just over an hour. Served it with the extra sauce over mashed potatoes and it was perfect. My husband said it was one of his favorite ways I make chicken, and even my 3 year old with a cold (thus lowered appetite) cleared off a big portion.

Tempeh Kabobs with Moroccan Couscous

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
This was pretty good--- I used the sauce for about 16 oz. of stir fry veggies instead of doing kabobs. I made white rice with the broth and cumin, but no garbanzo beans. I would maybe go with less sauce next time, up the ginger a bit and use it again for stir fry, although I'd like to try the recipe as written too.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
I sauteed the garlic with the walnuts, but otherwise didn't change anything. Very easy to throw together if you've already got chopped walnuts around.

Cajun Style Corn Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2007
This was actually pretty great... better than I expected it to be. Instead of 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper, I did 1 tsp. of Frank's Red Hot sauce plus just a pinch of cayenne. Then I added 1/4 tsp. oregano, 1/4 tsp. paprika and 1 tsp. dried parsley. I also did beef broth instead of water (which meant I didn't need the extra salt). 4 stars for the recipe as printed, but with the changes I'd say 5. I'm sure I'll make this again, as it's one of the better soup recipes I have tried on here in a long time.
