Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
This was absolutely lovely. I forgot the black pepper and it was great without it but I also think it would have been a nice addition. I would never have thought to add balsamic vinegar to Strawberries - but it's wonderful!

Easy Strata and Variations

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
I made this for a big group on a weekend get away and it was a hit! I added asparagus, plum tomatoes (seeded) and field roast vegetarian Applewood 'sausage' and used sharp chedder cheese. Nobody even new the 'sausage' was vegetarian! Served with a fresh fruit salad and sweet bread and it was gobbled up by all!

Mediterranean Pasta with Greens

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
This was wonderful! I made it with whole wheat spiral pasta and added a 1/4 cup of feta which was a great addition. I also used dehydrated sun-dried tomatoe rather than oil packed. I soaked the dried tomatoes in warm water with a few drops of oil for about a 1/2 hour. Worked great. This recipe will definitely be coming out for company!

This recipe is phenominal! The salad is stunningly beautiful and tastes wonderful. This is perfect for entertaining and is really quite simple. The dressing is delicious and would be great on other salads as well.

BUSH'S® Chocolate Lovers Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
This was good - although not as chocolaty tasting as I hoped. I didn't have salt-free diced tomatoes so I used the Italian stewed tomatoes I had in the Pantry. I would definitely make this again but would add a bit more chocolate!

POM Chocolate Covered Arils

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Absolutely delicious! As one party-goer raved, "It's a chocolaty juice party in your mouth!" Easy too! Used Ghiradelli bitter-sweet chocolate chips. Yum!

Irish Pumpkin Potage

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
This was lovely! I loved the spiciness of the cayenne with the pumpkin and nutmeg. I did make this recipe vegan by substituting vegetable stock for chicken broth and soy milk for the milk. I found I also only had to use 2 cups soy milk instead of the 4 1/2 cups of milk the recipe called for. I followed another reviewers suggestion and pre-cooked the pumpkin. Worked like a charm. I will definitely make this again!

Potato Taco Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
This was really comfort food at its best! I made this veggie-friendly by using mock ground beef, and noone could even tell! I also added frozen corn into the spinach/meat mixture, which was great. Save a little sour cream for on top and sprinkle with cilantro for extra flavor!

Zucchini Herb Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
Really glad I read the reviews! Based on other's suggestions, I doubled the rice and doubled or trippled the herbs and spices and garlic. I also added a green pepper to the zucchini mixture. Rave reviews at the dinner table and a second helpings all around!

Blue Cheese and Pear Tartlets

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
These were very delicious and were a perfect appetizer for thanksgiving. I drizzled a little honey on top after baking - which was the needed addition to make them spectacular.

I made these for a couple who just had a baby as an easy casserole dish for them to throw in the oven. While I didn't taste it, they said they loved it and it was the perfect comfort food they needed!

Dairy Free Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
I REALLY enjoyed this pudding recipe and it was so simple! And vegan! I did increase the sugar to 1/3 cup and also added an 1/8 tsp of orange extract which gave the pudding a wonderful 'chocolate orange' flavor. Yum!

Swiss Chard with Pinto Beans and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! One of my new favorites! I used black beans instead of pinto and did up the Red Pepper flakes to make it a little more zippy. Served over whole wheat pasta. Yum!
