Spicy Vegan Potato Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This is really, really good. The amount of spices seem to be just right, except that I only used 1 t. of salt, and we are salt-lovers.

Vegetarian Bean Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
This was very good. I only changed the recipe by using brown lentils (what I had), and using 1 T. cumin, because I love it.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
These were really good. I had to supplement part of the sweet potato with carrot, but it was still good. I think the prepared mustard gave it an odd tang, so perhaps I'll leave that out, but this was a great way to eat healthily and seasonally.

Penne with Red Pepper Sauce and Broccoli

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
I agree with the other reviewers who thought the sauce needed more flavor. I used altogether 1 t. salt, and added 1 t. oregano, and it was very good. I also used half the amount of pasta, and added a can of white beans for more protein. It ended up being delicious!

Eggplant Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2007
This was really great with the changes I made, so the rating is for the original. I did not fry the eggplant but rather sauteed it and the onions. I mixed 1/2 c. bread crumbs with garlic powder and italian seasoning, and 1/2 c. grated parmesan. I sprinkled this over the top for a crust. I also added green pepper and zucchini. Very good with these changes.

Banana Oatmeal Cookies III

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
These are great. They have a really interesting texture. They are cakey, but the oatmeal makes them less cakey than other banana cookie recipes I've tried. I doubled the spices, and added 1/2 c chocolate chips. I highly recommend these.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
I raise my voice in testimony to the deliciousness of these brownies. They are definitely competitive with mixes. I did not make the frosting, but I did sprinkle the top with chocolate chips. While this was delicious, it was not necessary, as the brownies themselves are very rich and chocolatey.

Fabulous Oatmeal-Bran Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I used 1 tsp cinnamon, reduced the sugar to 3/4 c (it had a perfect level of sweetness), used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white flour, and added walnuts. It was very good, and I imagine that shredded carrots and/or cream cheese frosting would be delicious.

Lena's Pasta Fazul

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
I thought this was a very good recipe to start from. I used 1/2 t salt, 1/4 t pepper, and added 1/2 t sugar to cut the bitterness of the tomatoes. I used an undrained 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes, thereby eliminating the necessity of oil. We topped ours with goat cheese at the table, and I threw in some olives. Very good.

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This is becoming one of my favorite recipes and perfect for sharing with vegetarian or vegan friends. I recommend adding salt at the table, as the squash really soaks up seasonings. Another way to do this (minus the attractive presentation but also some of the inconvenience) would be to roast cubed butternut squash that's been glazed in brown sugar and butter (and I add cinnamon). Then it could be served to a large group of people as well.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2006
This was great, although I did make a few changes. I added 1 tsp of ground mustard, and used about 1/3 c of bread crumbs, to which I added 1 tsp of oregano. I did not add the butter to the topping. Next time, I will probably puree the cottage cheese, but it was delicious the way it was.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
It was just too tempting to try a recipe with almost unanimous 5-star ratings. My husband and I both agree that this is the best banana bread we've ever had. I reduced the recipe to 12 servings, used a 9x5 pan, substituted fat free yogurt for the sour cream, and applesauce for the butter. I used three bananas for the one pan, and offset the low-fat effect by adding 2/3 c chocolate chips and 1/3 c walnuts. Wonderful!

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
After reading the reviews that suggested the muffins were a little bland, I decided to add 1/4 c brown sugar, and 1 tsp of cinnamon, and some chopped pear. They were ok, but these stuck a little to the muffin papers, even when cooled, and just leave something to be desired. Good, but not great, is my overall evaluation.

Indian Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
This was ok, but something about the spices was a little off. I added garam masala, more curry, and turmeric, as per the other reviewers' advice, but it still lacked a very authentic taste. Good, but I have liked other curry recipes from this site better.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2006
One more 5-star review can't hurt, right? I made these this morning, and they are delicious. I used half applesauce and half oil, and half wheat and white flour. I also made them in a jumbo muffin pan (which I slightly overfilled), so the cook-time was longer. They really are delicious, though, and I can't wait to use the topping for other recipes. Pumpkin pie, anyone?

Garlicky Beet Delight

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2006
I love beets, but to me this tasted too much like what is usually called "Harvard Beets," which is the stlye of preparation that used to make me think I hated beets. Just not what I was expecting, I guess.

Scottish Oat Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
I agree with the other reviewers that these are pretty dry. The dryness isn't bad, but the scones lack the flakey tenderness that I was looking for. As I was eating them, I kept imagining how good they'd be with some garlic, dill, and maybe parmesan. A technical note: I did have to add about 1/4 c more milk just to mix the batter (I know scone batter is supposed to be sticky), and I cut in, rather than melted the butter.

Italian Vegetable Soup with Beans, Spinach & Pesto

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
This soup is great, and it makes a TON! I initially forgot to serve it with the pesto, and I thought it was good, but the addition of the pesto makes it remarkable. I added 2 T. of Italian seasoning as well.

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2006
This recipe had a great deal of potential, which I hope to exploit the next time I make it. I think I will double the soy sauce, use honey instead of sugar, add more ginger and double the cayenne, decreasing the amount of broth as needed. I added broccoli and red onion, and halved the amount of peanuts. There will still a very satisfying amount, and that, plus the additional veggies made it considerably more healthy. Thanks, Denise.
