Mango Lassi II

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
Just what the recipe promised - smooth, creamy, and absolutely heavenly! I used strawberries because that's what I had on hand, and it was delicious. Next time I have mangoes around I will try them too.

Jalapeno Poppers I

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2008
Good stuff! Not as crunchy as what you get in a restaurant, but not as unhealthy either! I used less-fat cream cheese and you couldn't tell the difference. One trick is that it's much easier to stuff the peppers if the cream cheese mix is soft. I microwaved it 45-60 seconds and that did the trick.

Mint Chutney

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
I love the flavor of this, and it's pretty fast to whip up too!

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
A great cool, crunchy salad for summer! Tastes a bit like sweet pickles. I changed the proportions a little in an effort to clear out the fridge, and I used fresh dill since I had it on hand. I thought the fresh dill really added to the flavor. This does have a lot of marinating liquid, but just use a slotted spoon for serving and it's all good.

Baby Carrots with Dill Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I love dill and I loved these carrots! Of course, I used extra dill! I thought the lemon was a nice complement and didn't think it overpowered the dish. I steamed the carrots rather than boiled - just personal preference.

Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Yum! These were a hit. I followed other suggestions to use less butter and oil but kept the other seasonings the same. I used some tiny red potatoes from the farmer's market, so I didn't even have to slice them up and they made for great presentation. Clean-up was easy since I mixed everything in a Ziploc bag and lined the baking pan with foil. You can't beat that!

Tomato, Basil, and Feta Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2008
A great cool, crunchy salad for summer, and it went together very quickly. I served the dressing on the side to please everyone in my crowd, and the salad was okay without it. But, in my opinion the dressing gives it that extra zing so I wouldn't recommend skipping it!

Marinated Green Beans with Olives, Tomatoes, and Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
I tried this cold and hot, and I like it much better hot! If you do try it as a salad, I'd recommend adding a little more vinegar since there's not much dresing for 2 lb. of beans. Also, hot or cold, I think 8-10 minutes is too long to cook the beans. 3-5 minutes is plenty if you like your beans cooked but not mushy.

Angel Hair with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Yum! I thought this was good, and I liked how fast it was to whip up. If you chop up the tomatoes and cilantro as the pasta is boiling, it only takes about 15 minutes to make. It is pretty garlicky if you follow the recipe though! Sauteing the garlic beforehand like others suggested would probably help if you're trying to avoid garlic breath.

Fried Rice with Cilantro

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
I picked this recipe because of the fresh herbs and I wasn't disappointed! It was very flavorful, and I agree with others that it's similar to what you'd get at a Thai restaurant. The only thing I changed was to add in the goodies you normally see in fried rice - egg, peas, carrot, bean sprouts, etc. Yum!

African Sweet Potato and Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
This was one of those recipes that I really wanted to like but just didn't. After following the recipe I thought it was bland, and it still was even after I dumped in more spices at the end. Also, I didn't like the gritty texture from the peanuts and it was a chore to finish off the leftovers. This soup has potential, but next time I'd try a recipe with more spices and more peanut butter.

Shaker Herb 'N' Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
Delicious and warming on a cold winter's night! I follow the seasonings called for in the recipe but changed up the broth and veggies according to what I had on hand. That's the beauty of soup! I also added Italian seasoning to the meatballs per a suggestion, added some tiny pasta, and shortened the cooking time significantly (to maybe 45 minutes - just until the veggies were soft and the beef was cooked through). Next time I might also add a can of beans for extra fiber and protein. This one is a keeper!

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2008
Tasted great with some crackers and bread cubes. It did have a thicker consistency than what you'd get at a restaurant, especially after it started to cool. I used a crockpot instead of baking it and that helped to keep it warm and creamier. I'm planning to use the leftovers in a grilled cheese sandwich with some sourdough bread. Mmmmmm...

Cheesiest Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
Lots of tomato flavor and very easy to make. I used half no-salt added tomatoes and half fire-roasted tomatoes, and that tasted great plus I didn't miss the salt. Like other reviewers commented, the cheese stayed kind of grainy so based on the appearance I probably wouldn't serve it to company. But that didn't bother me and it still tasted awesome, especially with some grilled cheese or breadsticks for dipping.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
This was fine, but not as good as what comes out of a box mix from the store! I was hoping to duplicate a mix using ingredients I had on hand, and this was good (we ate it all!) but not as fluffy and moist as a box mix. I'll keep looking for the perfect cupcake recipe and keep buying the mixes until I find it.

Chocolate Frosting I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
I initially planned to follow other reviews and cut the sugar down when I made this, but I found that I needed all the sugar to get the right consistency. So, I ended up following the recipe exactly and it turned out great. If you're expecting frosting just like what you get in a tub at the store this isn't it, but this does have a rich chocolate flavor and it was great on cupcakes. It was pretty sweet and a thin layer of frosting was plenty. It would be perfect for brownies too! I had enough for 15 cupcakes.

Wild Rice 'n' Bread Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
I was excited to try this but didn't end up liking it at all. It was extremely salty, probably from all the chicken bouillon, and it had a funky taste that I didn't like - not sure if that was the herb combo or what. If you try this, I'd recommend cutting the chicken bouillon to 1 t, but personally I won't be making it again.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I was surprised to find that these were pretty bland on their own, although they looked beautiful. They perked up with some barbecue sauce and ended up being a tasty side dish. Still, I think they need some salt, and maybe quadruple the spices. I prefer the 'Totally Tangy' recipe on this site.

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly, and unlike others, I thought this was bland as written. I added another can of tomatoes and 1T of crushed red pepper flakes at the end and then it suited my taste much better (worth 4 stars this way). Also, I found that the barley was cooked after 1 hour of simmering, so I took the soup off the heat then so the veggies wouldn't get soggy. All in all, very good, warming, and easy! I love that you don't have to saute the veggies first. Next time I might throw in some shrimp or beef per other reviews.

Spinach Saute

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
I love spinach, and this is now one of my favorite ways to prepare it! This was very creamy with a bit of tang from the lemon juice. I added a little garlic powder and pepper too, and that really rounded out the flavor. Yum! - Update- I've made this many times now, and sometimes I throw in some chopped tomato, red pepper flakes, and pine nuts for a different twist. That's delicious too!
