Vegetarian Mexican Inspired Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2014
I like this recipe a lot mostly because it allows lots of changes in the stuffing, and the pepper will always balance whichever flavor. Next time I will try to add jalapeños and see if I like a spicier stuffing.

Seven Grain Bread II

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
Tastes great! Instead of the 7 grain cereal, I added 1/2 cup of fine chopped mixed nuts and seeds like: raw pumpkin seeds, roasted and salted "pepitas" pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, almonds, and pecans.

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: May 11, 2014
I really like this recipe! I used a pot instead of a skillet for easier stirring. I added some water while I was cooking the potatoes and carrots, because the potatoes took a while to get tender. Every time it seemed like there was a risk of burning them, I would add a little bit more boiling water in the pot. I also added 1 cup of plain kefir together with the tomato sauce to balance the flavor. It really tastes great and my husband and I loved it!

German Apple Cake I

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
The cake is absolutely fantastic! I used all ingredients written in the original recipe and did not change anything. It is really easy to make. I love the spongy taste and the fresh apple "kick" it delivers. I used confectioners sugar on top and it tastes wonderful. I will definitely make it again.

Coconut-Lime Cheesecake with Mango Coulis

Reviewed: May 5, 2014
Fantastic! I love the mix of each flavor. The mango puree can really be any other thick in texture fruit, if you are not into the blunt mango taste. The mango can be mixed with lemon or orange for a fresher, more sharp taste. I changed the gingersnap cookies with "Nilla" cookies, and that worked great for us! I will definitely make this again.

White Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
The sauce really has no taste. I should have focused on the recipe before I started making it, because I would have realized it was really just butter, margarine and flour with a hint of milk. Dairy sauce! I am not using this recipe again, sorry.

Ian's Potato-Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
I am appositely blown away by the taste of this soup! So rich and just wonderful. I didn't find cream of celery soup so I relaxed it with cream of mushroom. I added fresh finely chopped parsley instead of dry (I like the fresh taste better). I also mashed the vegetables after they boiled (right before serving). This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
The recipe turned out really good! My mother-in-law and I made it for Christmas morning. It tasted fantastic! I feel that replacing the apples with another fruit would go really well too, like for example: blueberries, strawberries, pears even? Wonderful recipe.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Cheap shortbread recipe. It lacked richness in flavor. The shortbreads were edible, looked presentable (look at my photos), but the taste was way to sugary and not very good. It was like eating a very sweet sand. The dough should have less flour because the 1 1/2" balls were almost falling apart when I tried to make the small holes for the jam to fit in. Suggestion: Maybe very fine crumbled almonds or pecans in the dough could add for a better flavor? I am guessing: 1/2 cup of fine crumbled almonds + 1 cup of flour (instead of 2 cups of flour). Seriously, there shouldn't be more than 1 1/2 cup of flour in this recipe. Also, 1/3 of white sugar should be enough.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
Yes, I do think the amount of mushrooms is way to big. I used less, about 3/4 pound of each type of mushroom. Also, since I am a vegetarian I switched the chicken broth with a vegetarian one. Turned out great! The recipe is absolutely DELICIOUS!! I really love it and most importantly my husband does too. :)

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2013
Really good sauce! I was trying to copy a similar sauce my husband and I tried at an Italian restaurant, and this is really close to it. The sauce in the restaurant was a little bit thicker, my guess is that they add flower in it. But, this sauce is also really, really good. We ate pasta with spinach, but would've worked even better with, like, cheese ravioli? Love it!
