Thai Cucumber Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
This is a really nice cucumber salad variation. I don't care for cilantro, so I substituted parsley. I also used yellow tomatoes and red tomatoes to give it even more color. It was a big hit.

Chilled Cucumber Yogurt Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Tastes amazing, especially on a hot day. I used plain yogurt with fat. Makes for a more filling dinner. I didn't add the raisins. I used my immersion blender. For company, I would probably put very thin slices of cucumber on top of each serving.

Nan's Potato and Egg Frittata

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Warning: I changed a lot of things. I followed the advice of previous reviewers for a few things. I microwaved the potatoes first and added sauteed onions, and a bit of cheese on top. I also added about a cup of broccoli to make it a complete meal (I feel a meal must have some veggie and potatoes are not veggies for me) and a couple more eggs. I gave it four stars, because flipping via a plate seemed like a bad idea for me. I put in under the broiler for a few minutes to finish it. The cooked potatoes would have had a nice flavor on their own, but adding onions just makes it that much more. The end result was gorgeous and delicious.

Southern Shortcake

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
This was awesome! I made it non-dairy by making soy buttermilk (adding 1 tsp lemon juice to soymilk). I took the advice of other poster and added a little bit of sugar. I didn't roll them out. Instead, I hand flattened, and cut into shape. Really yummy!

German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Easy recipe that tastes amazing. I changed the bacon to pastrami, because we don't eat pork. I also didn't use green onions. Instead, I sauteed an onion until just before tender. Mixed in the flour and then the rest of the ingredients.

Honey Mustard Tofu

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I took the advice of previous reviews, and made the sauce separate from the tofu. I also cut the tofu into smaller pieces. I added a couple of sauteed red peppers, and served it over some green veggies and rice. The flavors are really wonderful.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
I doubled this recipe, and it was great. We just kept eating it up. I did add a tablespoon of tomato paste to the glaze, and I didn't add any salt.

Crab & Avocado Salad with Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
This is just great and easy. I used imitation crab, the parsley option, and I mixed mango and peach. Very good on a warm summer day.

Southern Living magazine's Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
This is a family favorite. I've been making this for a couple of years, and it always gets eaten. I use frozen limas and corn, and I add a bag of sliced up okra. Otherwise, it's perfection.

Crab Quiche I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I also added an extra egg and hot sauce. I didn't have green onions, so I sauted a yellow onion and added it to the mix. I used imitation crab meat. Everyone thought this was great.

Hot and Sour Soup with Tofu

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
My husband and I really liked this soup. I used 3 Tbsp of cornstarch, 2 Tbsp of vinegar, and I added mushrooms and an egg. It's a meal in a bowl.

Quinoa Biryani

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
The flavors just weren't strong enough. The more we ate the more the flavor grew, but it was pretty weak. I'd be tempted to add some other flavor, but I'm not sure what. Also, my potato dice may not have been small enough, but they didn't have enough time to cook before the water was gone.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
This recipe was really easy. I hope to make this a lot more in the future. The reason I gave it four stars was because of the butter/margarine on top of the bread after baking. Our family likes a crunchy top, and this step detracted from the bread for us. I did change three things. 1) I used the rapid rise yeast. This eliminates the first rise. 2)I used 1/3 c. sugar for the second part of the recipe. As one reviewer noted, it's a little cheaper. 3) I used canola oil instead of melted butter. We try to keep all our bread non-dairy, and I don't like margarine.

Tuna Rice Puff

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
My husband was looking for the hot sauce even after I added a bunch of spices (garlic, mustard, cayenne, and onion powder) . I also added peas as another reviewer had suggested.

Sauerbraten I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
My husband made this for me. He followed the instructions to a "t," and it was just amazing. I did make a gravy, but not using sour cream. Just reduced and then thickened some reserved marinade.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2007
My husband and I liked this recipe after it had been tweaked. I used many of the previous suggestions...Toasted seaseme seeds, sliced grilled chicken breast, snap peas, and sprouts. My own tweaks, I used reduced fat peanut butter and low sodium soy sauce, and I let the whole thing sit and chill overnight. Before serving I let it come to room temperature.

Cincinnati-Style Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
I make this recipe often, especially for my veggie friends. I usually serve it with the beans (along with chopped red onions) as an optional topping. Doubles very well.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: May 10, 2010
This recipe was a huge hit. The lamb came out so tasty, and the reduction was spot on. I didn't add butter to the reduction, and it was fine. I didn't have shallots, so I substituted with mild onion.

Honey Mustard Chicken with Pretzel Crust

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
This came out really nicely. It wasn't hard to make, and my husband and MIL really liked it. My husband was the only one who said he would have liked to have used no-salt pretzels. I used about 1/2 the amount of pretzels. I didn't have yellow mustard, so I used spicy mustard as a stand in. Also, I halved the amount of honey for the sauce, otherwise it would have been too sweet for us.
