Vegan Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
Excellent banana bread recipe! Due to on hand ingredients, I used almond milk and melted coconut oil. I was also about a banana short, I'd say. I mashed the two bananas that I had in a two cup measure and then added applesauce to make two cups. Because I was having a chocolate craving, I mixed wet and dry ingredients together before adding cinnamon and nutmeg, split the batter in half, and added the spices to half and dark chocolate chips to the other. Both came out fabulous! I baked them in loaf pans instead of as muffins. It took about 45-50 minutes for them to cook through. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!

Fajita Marinade I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
We really liked this marinade. I followed the recipe to the best of my ability with what I had on hand. I used avocado oil (if you haven't tried it, you should!) and omitted the liquid smoke, as I had none. I reduced the cayenne by a bit, because we're wimps. I marinated my chicken for about 7-8 hours then cooked the chicken in marinade until it was browned then added our choice of veggies. I used all of the marinade and let it cook down while meat and veggies were cooking. Very tasty and chicken was tender! Thank you for sharing!

Spicy Salmon with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Very good! Fairly easy, too! This is just what I was looking for. We bought some salmon that didn't have very good flavor. If you're in a similar situation or cooking for someone who's not crazy about fish, this is your answer! I followed the recipe exactly, except that I halved the cayenne (we're wimps) and used a whole sweet onion. I also cooked the onion nice and slow while salmon marinated and let it caramelize well. I then transferred them out of the pan and cooked the salmon in the already hot and oiled onion skillet. This saved on dishes. Thank you, Romeo, for sharing this yummy recipe!

Nutty Coconut Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
This was SO good! I used dijon mustard and almonds, since that's what I had on hand and due to a gluten-free family member, I used corn flakes instead of bread crumbs. I followed another reviewers advice and stirred seasonings into wet ingredients instead of dry. I reduced the amount of cayenne and next time I would reduce the salt some. I think more of the seasonings make it onto the fish, when included in wet ing. I made this with tilapia, but think it would work well with cod, too. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This was quite good! I wanted to add some texture and fiber, so I added a can of garbanzo beans, a few stalks of celery, and a diced sweet potato. I used brown basmati rice, added with the second step, and cooked it for about 40 minutes. I had exactly 1 cup of rice left, so that's how much I added. I think the extra rice was a good thing, but I did end up having to add a little water before serving because it had thickened up considerably. I also doubled the chili powder and added 1/2 t cumin. Thank you for sharing!

Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I followed this recipe as posted, except I only had white onion and 2 chicken breasts. To make up for the missing breast, I added a can of black beans. I put the chicken in the crock pot, then poured the beans around it, then layered the remaining ingredients, as instructed. I cooked it on low for a little over 4 hours. It smelled wonderful when I got home! When I took the lid off, I was a little worried that it wasn't going to work well for taco filling (in soft corn tortillas) because it looked a little watery, but when I used the forks to shred the chicken, it absorbed the excess liquid. It made for excellent tacos! Thank you for sharing!

Raspberry Tilapia

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
I usually try to make a recipe as close to as posted as possible the first time, but I just didn't have all the right ingredients on hand, so I improvised a lot with this one. I can't rightly comment on the posted recipe, but as I made it I really liked it! I used dijon mustard, pure maple syrup in place of honey, and, since I didn't have raspberry vinegar, I used red wine vinegar and a couple spoonfuls of low sugar raspberry jam. It still tasted a little sweet to me, so I added some seasoned rice vinegar. I blended it smooth with an immersion blender. I used two pieces of tilapia and poured a generous amount of sauce over. I had some sauce leftover and used it as a dressing for a spinach salad with apples, cranberries, and toasted pecans. My hubby said it was the best raspberry dressing he's ever had! The fish was good! It still tasted just a bit sweet. I'll probably reduce the syrup a bit next time. Thank you for the inspiration!

Peppermint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This is very good... It is true it does not result in a very soft/creamy fudge, but the flavor is wonderful. I used 2 cups milk chocolate and 1 cup dark, because that is what I had on hand. I also increased the peppermint extract to 1 t, per other reviews and think it's just the right amount of minty at that quantity.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This fudge is so good! A very nice texture. Following the advice of another reviewer, I did not stir the mixture AT ALL during the 7 minutes of boiling. Turned out perfect... thanks for the great recipe!

Dark Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
This was a very easy fudge recipe! And yummy to boot. I made no substitutions except to use store brand dark chocolate chunks. We made three different fudge recipes this weekend and hubby and I both liked this one the best. The flavor is very good. It's a dense fudge, not as fluffy as some.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Very good! I reduced the cayenne, because we're wimps, and used frozen cilantro cubes, because it's what I had on hand. I also added about 2T of chopped nopalitos (cactus). We really liked this and I will definitely make again!

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Made with basmati rice (as that's what I had on hand) and lite coconut milk in the rice cooker. Added a splash of lime juice and omitted sugar. Turned out great! Light flavor, which accompanied the chicken I made nicely, without overpowering. Thank you!

Coriander Chicken with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
This was quite good! I diced the chicken before salting (I omitted pepper) and cooking so that I wouldn't have to cool it before cutting. I think the chicken was flavored through better for this. I used 2 chicken breast halves but did not increase salt or coriander. I used cayenne instead of a red chili (didn't have one). I added a tomato and a pinch of salt to salsa. Serve over coconut rice, as another reviewer suggested, which was good, but I think next time I'll try serving in corn tortillas with lettuce, tomato and avocado. Thank you for the neat recipe!

Grilled Chicken Breasts with Zesty Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2011
I am only rating the peanut sauce, as I didn't follow the rest of the recipe. I made a few changes based of of preference and dietary restrictions: creamy natural pb, unsweetened LIGHT coconut milk, an extra T of brown sugar (the pb I used didn't have added sugar), almond milk instead of cream, and omitted the stock at the last minute because I liked the consistency the way it was. It was fabulous! I served it over rice, chicken and veggies, and had some leftover. The next night we had leftover rice and I warmed the sauce and served over a salad of romaine and shredded carrot, just like one of our favorite Thai restaurants. Thank you for sharing!

Earthquake Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2011
These where yummy and easy! I used chocolate cake mix and split the batch, adding chocolate chips to half and peanut butter to the other half. Both were a big hit!

Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
So good! A hit with the whole family. I used 1 c applesauce in place of eggs because hubby is allergic. I omitted the orange zest because I didn't have any and left out walnuts on personal preference. For those of you that are unsure about the cinnamon and nutmeg in this: Just do it! It's fabulous!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
This was very good! I made two changes because I did not have all the ingredients on hand. I used real maple syrup in place of honey and 1/2 t dried ginger in place of fresh. I marinated for more than an hour, just due to timing, and found I had to turn the heat down to med from med-high to avoid burning the fish. Thank you for sharing!
