Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2004
This recipe is fantastic! It is just lovely with loads of cheese to melt over the end result. This is the first tofu recipe that didn't make me gag when I tried it! Thanks for making vegetarianism a little bit easier.

Vegetarian Gravy

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
This gravy is so, so, so good. The only things I do differently to the recipe are; more broth (can be a little lumpy without extra broth), more salt (because of more broth) and no yeast. This gravy is mouthwatering... I often just have it with french bread!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
Really lovely. You'd want to be careful though; too much sweet potato in each wrap can make them a little on the sweet side. More bean than potato makes for a really delicious dinner... Everyone in the family loved these! The bean part has made me swear off canned refried beans forever!

Vegetarian Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2005
If I could give this a zero, I would. Everything was so promising.... the meatballs smelled fantastic, the sauce was nice. When I took them out of the oven, however, the outside was alright, but the inside has the consistency of raw dough... Mushy mushy mushy. I thought that maybe more time in the oven would firm them out, but nothing worked.

Tofu Turkey II

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2005
Glaze was bland, tofu even more bland. Glaze started to burn very quickly.

Curried Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
This soup is lovely! Some grated cheddar added on just before serving is divine! It's also *so* easy to make...

Potato Potluck Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2005
This was okay... kind of bland for my tastes, and waaay too much sauce. If I make it again, I'll use more potato, more spices, and more cheese. Also, it took longer than 45 minutes for me... about 1 hour, and I had to put it under the grill.

Apple Crumble Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2006
I used 1/2 cup brown sugar for the flour mixture topping, as suggested by other reviewers, and LOTS of cinnamon, and it was *fantastic*... this was the best crumble I've ever had!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2006
Easily the best cookies I've ever made! I used half milk chocolate chips and half semi-sweet chocolate chunks.... divine!

Cranberry Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
This recipe was delicious; not too sweet, not too tart. I think I did something wrong because mine was very, very liquid after the suggested cooking time (plus some), but even then it tasted magnificent. A couple of days later it had solidified a lot and was even better. Does anyone know what could have gone wrong? The cranberries just seemed to meld with the liquid mixture and create a soup-like filling...

Roasted Portobello Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
This recipe is a fabulously simple idea. I did it a little differently, brushing the mushroom caps with garlic butter and letting it bake in the oven that way, then doing the blue cheese bit. It was so delicious, and yet so uncomplicated to prepare. Great flavour combination - the melted blue cheese is just enough to give it some kick.

Lemon Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Beautiful dessert! I piped the meringue onto the top so that it would look nice and completely cover the lemon butter filling without pushing any out to the sides (which happens if you try to spoon it on). I did get about twice as much meringue & filling as I needed though - I'd say this makes closer to 24 tartlets. This is a wonderfully fresh recipe that looks so pretty when it's done - I made sure to leave them in long enough for the meringue to go totally caramel coloured and somwhat crispy... so nice! Be careful not to burn the lemon mixture when it's heating - it's easy for the sugar to sink to the bottom and burn without you noticing, since the top won't even be bubbling.

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Fantastic! This has such a nice salty flavour without being overpowering. I really liked how quickly these grilled too - usually when I use just melted garlic butter brushed over the bread, it takes FOREVER to brown up, and then burns quickly - it's always a risk. I used basil & a good amount of parmesan.

Oven Roasted Greek Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Unbelievable! I parboiled my potato quarters for 5 minutes first, and then marinated them for about 4 hours. I won't give any advice on cooking time because mine was a little confusing (we had a ham in the oven as well for the first hour, so the temp wasn't high enough at first - the temp really needs to be in the 400s to get them crisp on the outside like I want them). The flavours were absolutely perfect. I added a little extra lemon rind and garlic, and we had no white wine so I used Cinzano. I found the marinade very forgiving in quantities... we love oregano & basil so I used a looooot more than suggested. Great ingredients! Thanks so much for this recipe, it was a huge hit. I served it with homemade garlic/cayenne/paprika mayonnaise and it was simply divine.

Vegetarian Nut Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Fabulous recipe, and very forgiving in quantities. I used about a cup more breadcrumbs, and tons more spices (we love oregano & basil). I also love mushrooms so there were extras of those as well. I topped it with three pineapple slices, and glazed it with a sweet & sour sauce in the last 20 minutes of cooking (a simple ketchup, balsamic vinegar & sugar mix). I cooked it a bit longer because I found it to be a bit jiggly after the initial cooking time. The flavours were excellent, and it's delicious cold too (we put it in sandwiches the next day). Thanks so much for this recipe! It made our dinner party special for the vegetarians too (there were two of us who don't eat the ham that was the centerpiece for everyone else).

Maple Syrup Tarts

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
Sinfully good doesn't even begin to describe these... I added shredded coconut to mine which was lovely too, and used pecans instead of walnuts. Thank you SO much for this recipe; don't forget, real maple syrup is a must... NOT table syrup.

Peach Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
This bread was a good beginning: it needs more peaches in my opinion... mine got lost in the bread. I used all brown sugar and it was nice and rich. A dash of orange extract really gave this a beautiful fragrance! Be very careful not to leave it in longer than stated... I was 5 minutes late checking on mine (different clocks in different parts of the house...grrr...) and it was definitely very overcooked. This actually improves with age. Ours lasted a good 4-5 days and was lovely on the last day too.

Sun-Dried Tomato Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
I used 1 cup of sundried tomatoes - it was way too delicate with 1/4 cup! I also just put in the sourcream & mayo to taste. Great recipe idea, thanks!

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Edible, but I did not care for them... these turned into oily, overly crunchy rocks. There clearly needs to be something to bind the ingredients together...
