Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2005
Don't forget to put your pan on the lower level of your oven or the pecans will burn, or cover the pie halfway through baking. It was very good and the pecans were enough on top to make a nice circular design. I tried without the crushed pecans and it was too liquid, while with all the pecans it was perfect. I did add 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and 1 T flour. Thanks!

Pineapple Fried Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2005
I reduced the servings to 4. I only used half a cup of rice, the pinneaple juice and enough water to make 1 1/3 cup to cook the rice. I used tamari instead of soy sauce, and added a garlic clove to the vegetables. It was very good!

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
Very good sugar cookies! But do not bake them 8 mn, 6 mn is enough. I almost burned my 1st batch, but it's my fault I should've checked after 5 mn.

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2005
These cookies are almost perfect, certainly the best I've tasted. Be sure to leave enough space between the cookies on the pan because they spread a lot. I would have given 5 stars if they were not so sweet. Maybe half the semi-sweet choc should be replace with dark chocolate? Or reduce the sugar a bit... But they are REALLY excellent!!

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
Mmmm... So good! I did a little mistake though: I divided the recipe by 3 to have 4 rolls, but added 1 tsp of yeast, which I think was too much...? But they baked wonderfully, and I am not sure less yeast would have been better... Anyway, delicious! Thank you! Oh and for 4 rolls, the rectangle = 6 x 14".

Home-Style Brown Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2005
If you use instant brown rice, it takes only 15 mn to make this recipe. It's really good if you need a quick, filling meal. My husband didn't like the chick peas in it, but I thought it was ok. Don't forget the soy sauce =) I'll make it again.

Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
It was very good and easy. It would be quicker to cook them in the microwave I think. I used red bell peppers. I will make it again.

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2004
I've tasted delicious cakes with liquid centers before, so I tried this recipe because it seemed easier than some and required less eggs. It was good, but not excellent. The outside of the cakes were too soft. Cooking them longer might help. I don't think I'll do them again, except if I am really craving those cakes but don't want to work too much in the kitchen.

Tofu Quiche with Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2004
This quiche was surprisingly good (I was a bit nervous, using all that tofu). I only had 12 oz of tofu, and 14 oz of broccoli, but it really was enough. I added a handful of shredded cheddar in the mix, and topped the quiche with more cheese. My husband liked it a lot, but said it wouldn't have been so good without the melted, crispy cheese on top. I will do it again.

Claire's Yummy Crepes

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
Very good. I tripled the recipe, and added 1/8 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp cinammon. Tip to keep the crepes warm and soft: fill a pie pan with boiling water, put a plate on top. When 1 crepe is ready, place it on the plate. Pile up the others 1 after the other.

Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2004
I was a bit surprised to see soy sauce in the ingredients. But it turned out very good. I didn't add salt, knowing I'd have enough with the veg. stock and soy sauce. I divided the quantities by 2 and used a 9 inch pie pan. It was very good. I added a bit more starch tho.

Basic Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
Very good. I served them with chili. I reduced the sugar amount, and added shredded cheese to the dough. I sprinkled the top of the muffins with cheese and baked them 20 mn. Delicious =)

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
This was very good, but I reduced the amount of chili, since the one I have is *really* hot. I served it with the "basic corn muffins", but added shredded cheddar cheese. My husband thought the mushrooms didn't really add anything to the dish, I might not add them next time, and add textured vegetable protein instead.

Double Crust Bean Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2004
This was delicious. I used only 1 pepper, and used 1/4 cup salsa + 1/4 cup tomatoes. I was worried that the crust on top would burn after cooking for so long, but it was perfect. I might even brush it with an egg yolk next time!

Vegetable Pasta Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2004
I have to admit I was worried until I took a bite. First of all, the reviews scared me a bit. Then I tought there was not enough vegetables (I added a bit more). I suggest adding red bell pepper instead of green, to give some color. I didn't boil the vegetables, but fried them in a little olive oil not retain the nutrients. And believe me, I had a pleasant surprise!

Favorite Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2004
I won't rate because I made quite a few changes. First of all, I sauteed the onions with paprika and a crushed garlic clove in olive oil. After 10 minutes, I added them to the lentils and covered with water in a normal saucepan. I checked often to add more water, and simmered 15 minutes on low/med heat. Then I added the onion mix with 1 1/2 cup of water, & simmered 10 mn. I served with toasted bread and cubed cheddar. I didn't put any lemon.

Awesome Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2004
They were good. I decreased the oil, and they turned out a bit dry but still with an oily taste. But all in all they were ok, and if you need to use up carrots, it's a good recipe.

Honey Crunch Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2004
That pie is SO good! I followed the recipe without changing a thing, and it was perfect. One thing though: There was way too many pecans on top, I suggest to put only 1 cup, and add the rest to the filling.

Potato Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Mmm... I almost didn't change a thing... I just sprinkled some more shredded cheese on top of the cakes after they were done. I used cheddar-monterey jack cheese mix, since I was too lazy to shred the block of cheddar I had. It was still great. Will do it again, it was very quick and easy.

French Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2004
This bread is the closest to french baguette I made, but it still not *it*. I heard it has to be baked in a steam oven, so I placed some ice cubes on the bottom of the oven. The rack wasn't long enough, so the bread ended up too high and didn't cook all the way in the middle. Be sure to make it quite long. As a bread, it's very good, but it's not quite a baguette.
