The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
The four stars was because of the meat substitute, since I'm not a big fan... I should have known better and just left it out. Otherwise, nice flavor, and yes,I used the garbanzo beans!

Slow Cooker Shredded Venison for Tacos

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Very tender, although bland, it was still good. I would not have thought of using venison for tacos before seeing this recipe. Thanks for sharing! Would consider making again, but would want to add more seasoning,etc.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Great recipe. Like other reviewers I found this came together quickly... 2-3 minutes and it was in the oven. Thanks for sharing!

Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
Salmon is one of my favorites, but... this seemed to lack flavor. I read the other reviews and cut back on the olive oil, and substituted thyme and rosemary, per another reviewers suggestion... It was just okay.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
My cupboard didn't have all the ingredients, but I was craving this soup, so the soup pot ended up with turkey sausage (for chicken), diced tomatoes (for salsa), and also doubled the cumin, lime juice, and corn. My picky husband thought this was a "5"...

Rhubarb Crunch

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Apparently the only times I make dessert - is for a church dinner...This got lots of compliments. I didn't have time to go to the store - and just started to use up the rhubarb in my freezer - but I didn't have enough. After reading the reviews, to make up the six cups, I ended up with: rhubarb, strawberries and peaches(2-2-2). Cinnamon and Allspice also went into the crumble. This came out great. It seems like no matter what you throw into this dish, it will come out great! Enjoy playing with this recipe, and thank you Carolyn for sharing!

Pork Chop and Feta Skillet

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
This was a great base recipe that can be adjusted according to what you have in your cupboard. (I love recipes like this!) I used Penzey's Bouquet Garni mixture of savory, rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, dill, marjoram, sage, and tarragon. I did not marinate in the lemon juice due to a lack of time, so the pork chops got a couple of quick squeeze of lime juice (all I had) and then in the fry pan for a quick sear. I really liked the citrus on the pork chops. (Who would have thought??) (The spices added a little flavor - but did stick to the fry pan.) Of course, no feta available - and substituted parmesan. The pork chops were moist - and very tender. Thanks for sharing - I had no idea I would enjoy this dish so much!

Orange Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This is comfort food. My family made jello salads for every family outing during my years at home. My mom used to use a blender to smooth out out the texture and then add the fruit. I love dishes like this - 5 minutes to put together! I recommend using small curd cottage cheese. I used fat-free cottage cheese, and sugar-free whipped topping. Unfortunately, I didn't have any mandarin oranges on hand - and it was fine without. This had 2-3 hours to set, but could have used a little more. Enjoy everyone - and thanks for sharing!

Standard Greek Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
My son says letting it marinate, and adding some dill & it would be a "5"! Nice, easy, quick, and flavorful summer salad.

Chorizo and Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
This made for spicy lentils. I like some spice, but I'm probably not going to make this again.

Joy's Prizewinning Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
I made this for a church group dinner and it went fast. Everyone raved over it and asked for the recipe. There were no leftovers! Thanks for sharing! Update: Different bowls are different sizes. I have one from pampered chef which is a 1/3 smaller than my other bowl. To deal with this, I broke up the angel food and followed with layers. It's excellent.

15-Minute Dinner Nachos Supreme

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2009
My son made this for us during a busy week. The only change was that we did not have the instant rice, so he did the rice in our rice cooker. This came out rather "boring"! My husband said it was okay. These guys love spice and nachos, but the left-overs went untouched. Sorry. I probably will not make again.

Ancient Roman Cheesecake (Savillum)

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Looking for a easy, low fat dessert? This is it! The cheesecake came out of the pan easily and had a nice taste. It got 4 stars for presentation. Watch carefully, if you get a nice golden top, the edges may burn. The directions didn't say anything about greasing the pan, so I didn't... but probably should have. I didn't even think about it until it was too late and the cheesecake was in the oven. I'd make this again. I probably wouldn't serve this for company until I ironed out the issues of presentation and timing. Also, the cheesecake was only 3/4" high - so doubling the recipe may give it a little more volume.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2009
This was a nice thick hearty chili that served as a good base. Some reviews talk about the recipe missing something...but it could be because of it being a relatively low-fat chili. We ended up omitting the onion (allergy), habanero, hot chocolate, and liquid smoke flavoring (allergy). We also used some "cheap wine" for the cheap beer, a pound of ground pork for a pound of turkey. There was also a carton of mushrooms that needed to be cooked up - so those got tossed in to the pot also. My husband is one of those "sadistic spicy food lovers" and gave this a "4 or a 5". My son gave a "4". Thanks for sharing. This is a keeper!

Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2009
We're talking comfort food here. This is how my mother (raised in Upstate NY) used to make peanut butter sandwiches for us kids when we were little. She always felt that peanut butter by itself was too thick. Have you ever had peanut butter tear your bread, or just gum up in your mouth? She would cream all the ingredients together like the recipe instructs, and then spread it on the bread. Thanks for sharing - it brought back memories!!

Shrimp and Octopus Soup (Caldo de Camaron y Pulpo)

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2009
I had a pack of surimi, baby shrimp, squid, and octopus that I pulled out of the freezer to make this. This made a good base. I made a couple substitutions: 2 quarts low sodium chicken broth for the water, 1/4 cup green chiles for the pasilla chile peppers, For seasoning, I used flax oil, minced garlic, chipotle red pepper, parsley, and salt.I left out the potatoes... Awesome good. This was a great find for a seafood lover. Thanks for sharing!

Tomato, Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
This came together easily and everyone loved it. Some (like my husband) were not sure of the chunky texture, but "the jalopeno junky", said it could have been hotter. Everyone else thought it was just right. My son said, it's surprisingly good!" The avocados at the store were not ripe, so the avocado ended up being left off. Instead, I used a can of black beans, rinsed. For extra bite, I added an extra tablespoon of lime juice, in addition to an extra teaspoon of ground chipotle pepper. Everything else went in pretty much as the recipe called for. Despite the avocados being left out - this came out well. It didn't need the avocado! As the salsa sat on the serving table, it developed its own juices - at least a cup in the bottom of its bowl, so we kept stirring it up. It kept getting better and better! Thanks for sharing!!!

Purple Apple Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I chose to make this for a dish to pass for a church dinner - and everyone loved it, including a fussy husband! The onions were omitted, with carrots substituted instead. The other substitution was 1/2 cup plain yogurt for the mayo, as the other reviewers suggested. My husband says 5/5. Nice flavor!

Slow-Cooked Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
This needed a little more spice. My husband suggested andouille or kiebasa sausage to give it a little kick which would have made it a "5". Because of food allergies, I made several substitutions: original flavor low fat soy milk for milk, because I didn't have any hash-browns, I use 7 mini potatoes (diced), no onions (allergy), 2 Tb milled flax seed for margarine;
