Vegan Mexican Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
This was quite tasty, but more like a soup than a stew. I liked the addition of hominy, which is not something I have eaten before. I used Rotel tomatoes with chili, and it was spicier than most food that we eat, but still enjoyable. It makes a lot--I froze half & hope to enjoy it later.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
This is one of our favorite recipes since we switched to a plant-based diet. I made it exactly as printed here, but it is the type of recipe you can adapt to your taste easily & use what you have on hand. Easy & nutritional!

Easy Roasted Almond Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
These have become a staple at our house. We've recently cut dairy out of our diet, and these are the 1st cookies that I've found that are dairy-free and very good. Also very easy to make! I must make them much smaller, because I usually end up with at least a dozen cookies from this recipe.

Tofu Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2012
We recently switched to a vegan diet, and I've been looking for good low-fat vegan desserts. This one I will make again. My husband loved it and my grandson gobbled up 2 pieces. Thanks for the recipe Christopher!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
This recipe looks so simple--I couldn't believe it would turn out as good as it did. I made it for our family dinner last Friday and my daughter-in-law has already made 2 more batches by request--the kids wanted more chips on the weekend & a neighbor tasted it & told her to bring some along for 4th of July. It's easy to find the way you like to do the chips best--I sprayed, sugared, sprayed again and THEN cut the tortillas. Store bought would be OK, but not as good as making these yourself.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
Several days after coming home from surgery, I sent my husband to the grocery store with lettuce on the list. Well the angels were watching over him & he came home with cabbage instead. I found this recipe which contained ingredients I had, or had reasonable substitutes. And with a name like that how could I resist? My "I'm not a cook" husband chopped all the veggies and it was easy enough for me to put it all together. We just finished it and it was great. So comforting. Real food. I feel better already. I used 2 tablespoons olive oil which was enough. With the onion (used a whole small one) and garlic, I also cooked some celery and green pepper. I used "better than bouillon chicken base" which I use in place of bouillon in all my soups. 1/2 teaspoon pepper was just right for us but 1/2 teaspoon salt was plenty. I thought I'd want more than 1/2 of the large cabbage I had--but 1/2 was fine. I used diced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, basil & olive oil. It turned out great.

Swedish Kringles

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
This is one of my favorite pastries. It looks & tastes so fancy but is easy to make. I've found 1/2 tsp. almond flavoring is enough both in the 2nd layer & in the frosting. Be sure and mix the water, butter & flour well before adding the eggs in the second layer or you will have a gloppy mess. Also it's probably important to add the eggs one at a time and beat after each. I sometimes take shortcuts in recipes, but this is one you should follow pretty carefully. When I make these I divide the first dough into 2 parts and flatten on an ungreased cookie sheet to make 2 strips three inches wide and the length of the sheet. Then I spread the second layer evenly over each crust. I also use skim milk in the frosting & it turns out great.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Wonderful recipe for the day after Easter. My husband first called it "left-over soup" but then he had 2 bowls full. Easy to make and tasty.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
I tried this for Christmas since it has such rave reviews. It's a good bread, but I actually prefer the taste of the pumpkin bread I usually make which has less oil and sugar.

Lemonade Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
Most reviewers rated this as a great summertime cake, but I just made it for my birthday & think it would work cute as a valentine's day cake too. I made half a cake mix into a one-layer heart shaped pan (the rest I used for cup cakes.) Then I mixed the quart of softened ice cream, lemonade and red food coloring with a beater and spread it on top of the cake. I almost stopped here because the swirled ice cream was so pretty. But I had a small container of cool whip, so I beat that with the rest of the lemonade and spread that on top. (It looked like the lemonade would curddle the cool whip, but I beat it with a beater & it came out fine). I frosted the cake with that & added red sprinkles on top. This came out more of an ice-ream cake since it only had one layer of cake. Someone who is used to buying ice-cream cakes at the ice-cream store said, "You made this?" It was so easy my 5 year old grandson helped me do most of it. And it turned out pretty too.

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2005
This was a big hit at our Friday night family dinner. Because we have to serve 8, I used 1 1/2 pounds of mushrooms, a pound of pasta shells, one can of vegetable broth and 2 bags of select asparagus spears. I also used 2 containers (4.4 oz) of the light garlic & herb boursin cheese. The result was wonderful. It tasted very much like a rich mushroom stroganoff. It is not terribly attractive--it looks pretty much like the picture shown. But everyone liked it & requested that we add it to our regular rotation. While I was making it, the sauce looked very thin but once it was added to the pasta, it was great--just the right amount and not thin at all. I will make this again--by popular demand.

Plum Tomato & Pesto Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2005
I served this as a side dish to a lasagne I made & everyone was eating this instead of the lasagne. It was very good. The only Italian bread I could find had seasme seeds on it & people thought that added to the flavor. I left out the olives and used a little less mozzarella due to the tastes of my family. It's a very versitile recipe.

Berry Bread Pudding with Brown Sugar Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
This was wonderful! My french bread was probably not stale enough so I had to cook it a little longer, but it turned out great. The sauce added a lot of calories and was rather sweet. The pudding stood up well on it's own, so I don't think I'll make the sauce next time (though it is very yummy.) I served it for a family dinner and my son & daughter-in-law both gave it a 10. Thanks!

Cannellini Beans and Greens on Garlic Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
This is not a recipe I would have tried except my husband bought some kale & said "I know you'll find a good way to cook this". Well this definately was a good way to cook it! Of the 3 kale recipes I tried, this was our favorite. I didn't change a thing--we will be having it again.

Grandma's Peach French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
It was excellent--but I made a major change by adding 1 1/2 cups of milk to the egg--and cooking it 15 minutes longer. This would probably help in the instances where people felt it was too dry. I will make it this way again. Thanks for the recipe!

Honey Poppy Seed Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
I decided at the last minute to have this dressing on top of my fruit mixture of strawberries, melons and grapes this morning for brunch. So I had my son make the dressing while I was cooking. It turned out great (I just used 1/2 recipe for a large bowl of fruit), and was easy enough for my son to put together fast. It got several compliments (well a lot of compliments after my son kept saying "I made the dressing"). A keeper!

Vegan Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2003
I make Friday night dinner every week for family consisting of vegetarians and non-vegetarians. This recipe passed the test with both groups. I thought there would be too much cumin and chili powder. Somehow all of the spices seem to combine wonderfully and we did not find it too spicy. Thanks, Christine, we will make it again!
