Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2012
Fantastic! And super easy! I did add about 3/4 c cooked rice and also added in about 1/2 c of flour just to make sure it held together... If i had drained out the juice from the peppers and onions, that would help too... but i was too lazy, lol! Delicious! I will be doubling the batch and freezing some so i constant ly have these!

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I halved the recipe, but still used the whole jalapeno, scraping out the ribs and seeds to control the heat. I also did half pinto, half black bean cuz thats all i had! i added 1tsp of cumin, and decreased the salt. You may need to season after cooking, but i'd rather add later anyways.

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili with Greens and Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2012
Wonderful recipe, and had a followed it, would have been perfect! i didn't have chili powder in my cupboard, neither did i have a can of tomoates. I did add some carrot, celery, and bell peppers though. I also used fresh flowering oriental kale instead of the frozen green. great idea adding kale to the chili! Thank you!!

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
I made a few changes: While boiling the potatoes seperate, i sauted the other veggies in a little oil, then added pre-cooked chicken. I add the potatoes, and a bag of frozen california blend of veggies. I added two tbsp good curry powder, and a few pinches of red pepper flake. Then i added the stock, brought it up to a simmer then added the peanut butter. Wonderful recipe idea! Never would have thought about throwing PB into the soup!!

Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2011
Good, but i made a few changes. **TIP** TEMPER THE EGG!!!! That means slowly adding some of the hot liquid while whisking the egg. This will bring the egg up to the same temp as the milk with out the temp shock and then scrabbling. I did mine on the stovetop since i don't have a microwave. I also doubled the chocolate that the recipe calls for. And i used chocolate chips i had in the cupboard! Don't bother grating the chocolate! Either cheat and use chips, or do a rough chop with a knife on a cutting board if you're using a bar of chocolate. I hope this helps some people! Love and peace! Cheers!

Apple Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Great recipe, but I made a few changes. A few reviews said the apple flavor gets lost, so i did a fine dice rather than shred. I also added a splash of Jameson irish whiskey for flavor... you could probably do vanilla or almond extract. I also mixed the cinnamon and sugar together before sprinkling it over the scones. These are really simple, and the flavoring is suttle, but these are really great, especially with a good-sized dab of butter on them right after they come out of the oven :) Cheers, and happy eating!

Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
Awesome recipe! I made a few changes, though. I used a vanilla flavored non-dairy beverage similair to soy milk, and added 1/2 tsp almond extract. I also made it in a make-shift double boiler. I put a smaller pot into a larger pot, filled the larger 1/3 of the way up, and let it boil the entire hour or so that the rice pudding cooked in the smaller one. I still checked and stirred every 15 minutes, but this way i didn't have to bend down to grab the dish out of the oven. a bit more convenient with a three year old running a muck!!! Thanks again!!
