Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
These are fantastic! I've made them about 4 times, using panko style as well as regular packaged bread crumbs. I grate the zucchini on a "coarse" grate, and also add a medium carrot grated on a "fine" grate...it adds a little color & sweetness, I think. Also, I grate the veggies onto a double thickness of paper towel, and fold it up to make a ball and squeeze it to remove excess moisture. If I get it too dry, I just add an extra egg. Also, I took the advice to BAKE them at about 400 for 10-12 min. each side. They are good cold, too.

Poor Man's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
My husband said "This is a keeper." I did take advice of others and sauteed the veggies. Then seared the meat. Also added a splash of soy sauce, and used veg. broth instead of water. Thanks for the recipe!

Catfish Creole

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
Sorry! My husband took 3 bites and said he couldn't eat it. Just tasted fishy to him. I ate it, and had more the next day for lunch. I think the flavors blend a little after it sits, but I'm not going to get through the whole pan of leftovers!

Rick's Caribbean Ropa Vieja

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2007
Flavor is wonderful! But it looks awful. (What do you expect of ropa vieja ('old clothes')? I used my crock pot. Should have cut the meat across the grain into smaller sections before shredding. It was stringy. My husband and I liked it, but wouldn't try serving it to guests!

Tourtiers (French Pork Pie)

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
I did substitute half ground beef and half pork. Only made one pie for 3 of us. Definitely a keeper for a winter night meal!

Christmas Couscous

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2007
This is a good way to dress up couscous! But I had to figure out how much 6 oz. was. So I went with 1 Cup. Then I used only 1 1/2 C. water. 4 Cups would have drowned it. Also took advice of others and added garlic powder and pepper.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2006
Excellent side dish, or main dish for vegetarians. I used reduced-sodium black beans and Basic Vegetable Stock from this site to reduce the sodium by about half. It tasted just fine to my salt-loving family.

Basic Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2006
Delicious! I reduced the salt, and will use even less next time. I couldn't bear to "discard the vegetables", so our dog gets a serving of them with her kibble every day. She wolfs it right down!

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
Great recipe. Sooo easy! I have to watch my sodium intake, so used low-sodium garbanzos and less salt. But I think the cumin really adds character to the taste.

Fabulous Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
What an easy way to cook up a delicious side dish! I wouldn't call it 'fried', though.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2006
This was the best corned beef I've ever tasted! I only gave it 4 stars because I adapted it based on other reviews: Cooked a 3 lb. corned beef for 5 hrs. on High in the slow cooker. (Put some chunks of potato, carrot and celery in first. I served it along with "Fabulous Fried Cabbage" and corn bread.
