Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
I decided to make this to use up some beans I had in the pantry. I used a can of garbanzos (whole) and pintos (pureed with tomatoes) - not sure how much that affected the flavor of the soup. I liked this a lot since it was very fresh and healthy however it was lacking a little flavor. I also used reduced sodium broth so I ended up adding some salt to the finished product and served with a dallop of sour cream. I think next time i will try the black beans and also add a bit of crushed red pepper for some heat.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
I would give this a 5 for quickness & easiness and a 4 for everything else. I added some herbs to the dough as I'd seen other reviewers had done and I think next time I may add even more. I'm happy to have a quick home-made pizza dough recipe - I will definetly be making this again and playing around with ingredients and toppings.

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: May 1, 2008
This was very quick and easy and tasted pretty good. I thought it was a bit bland though - I would consider squeezing some lemon juice on at the end maybe and increase the herbs in the topping.

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This is pretty good. I increased the juice and zest as recommended by others. Glaze soaked into the bread making it very moist.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I thought this was alright but it wasn't as great as I was expecting given all of the high ratings it has received. I thought it was a little bit bland - perhaps next time i will add more pepper flakes. Great for how quick and easy it was to put together.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
This turned out pretty well. I made with "meal starters" vegetarian steak strips which are already cooked so you just have to heat them. Next time I will pay more attention to the broccoli cause I overcooked it a little bit. Followed others' advice and added more garlic and ginger - I thought this was very good for how quickly it came together.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This is very good - just as tasty as any spinach dip I've ever had. Made with reduced fat cream cheese to try to off-set some of the richness.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Yum! This was very easy and quick and tasted great. The only change I will make next time is to decrease the salt as I found it a bit too salty.

Candied Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
Yum - this is quick and delicious. No need to use all of the butter and sugar as written - it tastes great with about half of each. Be sure to turn during cooking as is written - I've made this twice and the second time forgot to turn it so it cooked a bit unevenly - still tasted good though!

Sesame Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
This had really good flavor. I steamed the broccoli since I prefer it to boiling. I didn't quite have enough broccoli so I used the remainder of the sauce on some white rice which was really tasty. Quick, easy and light.

Creamy Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
This was pretty good for a quick soup. As other reviewers said this does not make a lot - next time i would definitely double the recipe and add more flour to make it a little bit thicker and possibly omit the oregano since it added a bit too much tangy-ness to the soup.

Cubed Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
This was pretty good for a quick potato recipe. I incresed the cooking time by 2 minutes and still a few of the chunks were under-done. I agree with some of the other reviewers that a little more seasoning was needed.

These were alright - best when they were fresh out of the oven.
