Steak Tips with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2005
WOW! This was fabulous - my husband was blubbering with happiness over this dish. We added a bit of fresh rosemary to the sauce BEFORE reducing it - I think it added a terrific flavor. Also omitted any added salt since the broth is salty (used 99% fat free). Did not grill the sirloin tip but cooked it in the oven and it turned out great. Will absolutely make this again!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
These were good, but the texture of the filling was a little bit too soft - maybe I'll add some more beans next time. Also, I think the cheese is a must - it really rounded out the flavors and made for a more satisfying burrito. I halved the recipe and was able to make 8 burritos.

Vegan Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
My daughter's teacher is a vegan and I wanted to make a treat she could eat. I've never made or eaten anything vegan before so I didn't know what to expect. I substituted 1/2 c applesauce for 1/2 c of the oil. They are very moist and cakey - so much that I would put them in the fridge to store so they don't get moldy. The taste was better the next day, but I agree with a previous reviewer about the "harsh" taste - it has kind of a sour aftertaste. I also thought it was strange that this recipe used white flour and white sugar. I'm sure many vegans would substitute some healthier alternatives? Next time I may add some instant expresso powder to the water for a mocha brownie.

Pineapple Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
This was a very easy cake to make, and I had high hopes since no oil was used. It came out looking nice, and it was very spongy. However it's way too moist - I covered the pan with plastic wrap and the next morning the entire top of the cake came off with the wrap! So, I couldn't use it for it's intended purpose (Father's Day picnic). Also, since it's such a moist cake I was worried about it getting moldy in room temp, so I'd suggest others keep it in the fridge when storing.

Vinegar Pickled Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2005
Recipe was easy to make - I used a 1 lb bag of baby carrots and it worked well, carrots were tangy and nice and crisp. I think some additional seasoning would be nice, but I'm not sure what I'd add. Everyone else thought they were good as is.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
This was quite good! I left out the cumin and used garbanzo beans instead of the cannellini beans. I also rinsed all the beans, not just the black beans and used the frozen white corn from Trader Joe's - its great frozen corn and sweet too! Next time I'm going to add some small-sized pasta like orzo or ditalini.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
We made this twice - 1st my husband (who didn't read the recipe carefully) added the chicken broth to the beans, cooked the rice in plain water and left out the cumin but added bay leaves. He spooned the bean mixture over the rice and it was EXCELLENT! When I made it I followed the recipe as written cooking the rice in the broth, but I added a couple of bay leaves and left out the cumin and then mixed the beans in the cooked rice as directed. It was good, but not as good as hubby's version, so I'm giving this 4 stars b/c the recipe as written was just OK. However, will make this again w/ hubby's alterations. Also, we both used one 15 oz can of beans.

Raspberry Sour Cream Muffins

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
The first time I made these I wasn't impressed - they stuck to the papers and I thought they tasted rather bland. My husband convinced me to make them again and what do you know, they tasted better! Instead of papers I just sprayed the muffin tins w/ Pam and the muffins came out of the pans great.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2005
I did not have a good experience with these. First of all, I think it's odd that it calls for white sugar and not brown sugar in a pumpkin dessert recipe. Also, olive oil in a dessert?? I did substitute 1/2 c brown sugar for 1 c of the white sugar. I filled the cupcake papers 1/2 full with batter (alarmingly thick!) made an indentation for the cream cheese filling, then put a dollop of batter on top of the cream cheese. They looked great when they came out, but it took about 20 extra minutes to bake them, and then I found they burned on the bottom and were almost rock hard. I, like another reviewer, ended up just pulling off the top 1/4 of the muffin w/ the cream cheese and streusel. Also, from what I could taste these were quite bland. If I were to make these again I would use more brown sugar than white, use only brown sugar in the streusel topping, add some more spices and use vegetable or canola oil instead of olive oil.

Spinach Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2005
I was so excited to try this recipe since so many people liked it and it was a good way to get in some good vitamins! I doubled the sauce part, but didn't have parmesan cheese, so rolled the breasts in italian seasoned bread crumbs. The consistency of the sauce was fine, but the dish was quite BLAND. I don't know if it was b/c of the cheese substitution or not, so instead of giving it 1 or 2 stars I'll give it 3.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2005
Like another reviewer I found that these were too "eggy" and were flat, dense pancakes. The batter was very thin so I reduced the milk to 3/4 c and only put in 1 T of oil. They were much better and fluffier. A nice recipe, but not worth 5 stars.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2005
This was good, but not "saucy" enough. Also, unless you already have these ingredients on hand it's not any cheaper to make this vs buying a can of Manwich. I'll make this again if I happen to have the ingredients, but won't go out and buy them to make this special.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
This was so simple to make and DELICIOUS! We put in a little extra garlic, less onion and no cilantro due to our preferences and we just loved the results. This will definitely be made many more times!

Self Frosting Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2005
These are SWEET and I even cut the white sugar down to 1/4 c based on other reviews saying these were too sweet. My husband liked them and said they reminded him of eating oatmeal as a kid, so I averaged his 5 stars with my 1 star to rate these at 3. They did take longer to cook and the powdered sugar kind of glazed in some areas and in others it didn't. They did get a nice "crackled" appearance kind of like Snickerdoodles and are a thick "puffy" cookie.

Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2005
This was a tasty sauce and very easy to make. I served it over the "Chicken Enchiladas I" also on this site instead of the taco sauce it listed. It was a GREAT combo! The yield was 1 3/4 c after simmering for 15 min.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2005
This was terrific! How can anyone say it lacked flavor?? It had the perfect balance of spices, but not TOO spicy. Maybe it was b/c I used used the Red Enchilada Sauce on this site (as suggested by another reviewer) instead of the plain old jarred taco sauce it calls for. Yes, the filling mixture looked a little strange (I thought it odd to put the sour cream in while you are still heating the filling and it did look like it separated a little) but trust me once they are baked and you have your first bite you will LOVE them!! Will definitely make this again!

Butter Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
This is a nice spritz cookie - one of the better ones I have tried. The dough is really firm - shaping it into a "tube" before putting it into the cookie press makes it a lot easier to fill the press. The addition of cream cheese makes these cookies taste a little like kolacky cookies. It's been a week since I made them and they still taste good!

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
This was a tasty recipe and pretty easy too. I substituted rough chopped almonds for the pistachios and they worked out great.
