Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
Awesome. I didn't follow the measurements, just the list of ingredients. Used rolled oats & breadcrumbs, rinsed & drained the beans, and strained liquid out of pureed pepper/onion mixture. Held together great. I think next time I'll add some more texture by not mashing up beans so much & using all oats & no breadcrumbs. But it really was great. Whole wheat buns, sliced avacado & a mayo/hot sauce spread. Made two very large patties. Hubby LOVED it!

Coconut Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2011
Not good. I followed the recipe exactly, no substitutions. When I was putting in the fish sauce, I thought it seemed like a lot, but I did it anyway. I make Thai and Indian food all the time, and normally I LOVE the smell of it. This was just horrible.

Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This is a very good recipe with some modifications. The first time, I made them exactly as listed (except with butter flavored Crisco instead of butter) and found them to be a bit crumbly and could taste the baking powder in them. So I subbed half & half for milk but only used 3/4 C. I used margarine the second time and the texture was better. Not sure how they would be with butter (probably great). Instead of 5t baking powder, I used 3t baking powder, 1t baking soda and 1t cream of tartar. I also added a little more salt, just a pinch. I added 1 C dried cranberries & orange-flavored raisins and some orange peel (probably about 1T). I also added 1t vanilla a 2t cinnamon. Then I made a glaze for them, which made ALL the difference. I used 1t vanilla and 1T milk. I added powdered sugar and milk until it was a good consistency (thick but not as thick as icing). I tried to use a glaze recipe I found on here, but it was WAY too runny, so I just kept adding more and more powdered sugar until it was thick enough. Try the glaze addition. It really does make a difference. :) With the additional ingredients, I found that I needed to cook them longer b/c they rose more and were chewy in the middle. So I reduced the temp to 350 and cooked an additional 10 min, but play with it. The cool thing about this recipe is that it's easy, so you can make a batch and then make alterations. Next time I'll use this recipe to make mini vanilla scones like at Starbucks.

Ground Beef Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Followed recipe exactly except substituted corn for the green beans. It was mushy and bland. I'm a skilled cook, so I was quite surprised at how this turned out. Had to smother it in garlic salt & ceyenne pepper. There was 1/2 C of standing water in the bottom even tho I drained the corn & beef. If u try this, add lots of seasoning, make sure the layer of mashed potatoes is thin. And add some kind of thickener. Mine didn't even stand up & no matter how long i cooked it, wouldn't brown. I'm sure it could be improved upon if you're creative.
