Vegan Lasagna I

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This was a delicious recipe. I loved how easy it was to modify. I brought the recipe down to 4 servings on the calculator and used an 8x8 glass dish to bake. I found that with an 8x8 pan I only used 6 lasagna noodles and had 3 layers of noodles. It was very easy to cut, slicing right down the space between the noodles and the cutting in half, forming 6 large servings (not 4 like the calculator says). It's very easy to taste as you go, adding more of whatever your tastes are. I added a tsp. of garlic powder to the tofu mixture because we love garlic. I probably added more of the basil and parsley, simply because I hate measuring fresh herbs. :) The sauce was delicious and this will become a staple for the weekends. I let the sauce simmer while I was readying the tofu, pasta, setting the table ect. I did not cover mine with aluminum foil and there was no boil over, even though my pan was maxed out. I turned it around in the over 1/2 way through the 30 minute cooking time. I will increase to 35 mintues next time due to the thickness of my layers. I recommend this recipe for those who want to impress someone with a vegan lasagna. Heavenly goodness. Thanks for a great recipe.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
Very tasty. I made 14 muffins by halving the recipe. Baked at 350* for 25 mintues to perfection. If you make muffins, don't use cupcake holders and you will get a crisp edge on the cupcake and a soft warm center. Just be sure to spray your pan if you don't use the cups. The 2nd day around the tops were very wet. Moist cupcakes, with no need for frosting. They only lasted 4 days in our house. Each day getting a little more moist. Best bet would be to bake them the day you plan to serve a gathering or large family.

Robin's Sweet and Spicy Black Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
We make this dish a couple of times per month. Very simple and very flavorful. Ingredients are always on hand. Sometimes we serves over a cooked bag of Success Brown Rice though it's fine alone too.

Chocolate Oil Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
MOIST! I halved the recipe and made a batch of cupcakes. Baked at 350 for 20 minutes. This recipe does not require frosting and you likely won't miss it, it's that moist. I loved not having to have eggs on hand though the cupcakes were a little fragile because of that, but it made it more convenient for me. I also loved the one bowl mixing, no beaters needed aspect. I will make this one again and again. Very chocolatey, moist and easy...it's a winner!

Lentil Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
This was the first lentil loaf I've ever tried to make. I was please with my results though I have started getting ideas for the next time I make this. I thought the flavor was very good with the dry soup mix and vegetarian vegetable broth (not water as some suggest). My loaf didn't stay together very well when I pulled it out of the pan at the end of the 10 minutes (the bottom and top seperated horizontally as it was flipped and pried out of the pan even though I used an extra egg as one reviewer suggested. I think I might make lentil cupcakes next time and hope that they come out easier. I would suggest lining your loaf pan with either parchment or wax paper before filling with the lentil mixture if you like to make a nice presentation. I would not suggest adding the 1/3 cup of bread crumbs as suggested either...just a dusting will do as the rest will just fall off. All in all, I was very pleased with this dish. Thank you for sharing!

Wicked Good Veggie Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2006
THE best chili I've ever made. Very simple ingredients, but taste like you wouldn't believe. Simple to make too. I followed recipe almost exactly as written, except I only used 1 tsp. of cheyenne pepper (due to past mistakes). Cinnamon and honey were excellent additions and I really think it made a difference in this recipe. Delicious!

Thai Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
Delicious! This was perfect. I followed the recipe as it was printed (except my can of milk was 13.5oz.) and both my husband and I loved it. This was simple and ingredients are usually on hand in this house. I will make it again. Attn readers: This is not a spicy dish, if your in a spicy mood, try a red curry. This is very creamy and smooth and mild and delicious!

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
I could have eaten this whole dish by myself, it was that good! Very simple to make and tasted delicious even though I made it 1 day before Thanksgiving. I used 1 (8oz.) brick of cream cheese because it was easier...and how can you have too much cream cheese? :) Thanks for this new staple in my recipe box!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
Delicious! I will never buy canned sauce again. This was sooooo easy and sooooo tasty. Get ready for compliments when you make this simple dish. I used frozen cranberries that had been thawed. I also poured mine into a blender and pulsed it 3 times and then chilled it in the fridge. Delicious!

Broccoli and Stuffing Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
It's amazing what you learn by reading the reviews. I wasn't paying attention to them personally and I paid the price. I will mix this all together next time before baking and "if" I put cheese in it, it will go on in the last 5-10 minutes. The stuffing I bought was cubed, maybe that didn't help the dry factor. MIX all together. Otherwise it is a delicious recipe and I'm so happy that Autumn took the time to put it on this site. Thanks!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
This was pretty good. I used an 8x8 glass pan and it required 20 extra minutes so that it wasn't runny inside. Smelled delicious in the oven and look wonderful when it was finished. Thank you!

Green Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2002
This was a tasty recipe. I have to admit that we made adjustments to it to make it more substantial. We added an onion, 10 baby carrots, maybe 1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli, a leek and a scallion. I also couldn't find a 10 oz. can of milk, so I used a 14 oz. can and the curry paste was just the right amount for us (You don't have to drizzle a lot of liquid on the end result if you can't stand the heat). The seasame oil was wonderful! We will make other variations of this recipe for sure! Thanks!

Layered Egg Noodle Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2002
This was delicious! The only ingredient adjusting I did was, instead of using beef I used three GardenBurger Flame Grilled Patties (My husband & I are vegetarian). The directions forgot to tell you to add the garlic, so I added it when I went to simmer everything. I layered it like I would lasagna. Noodles, sauce, cheese. Noodles, sauce, cheese. I will definitely make this again!
