Jan 2, 2015 in on

These were great. We added a bit extra lemon juice and zest from a whole lemon and didn';t cool crust like other reviewers suggested. The crust is so crispy but just melt in your mouth. The lemon flavor is right on. The only mild complaint is that the filling was a little too soft set in my opinion. Not sure if cooking slightly longer wo...

Great recipe! I';m giving it 5 stars for ease, low cost, and relative health. First time I made it just as written but without the tomatoes and it was quite good. What I will say, though, is I will tweek it next time. I think I';ll double the tuna and olives and maybe add some other veggies because it was mostly pasta. Otherwise, this...

Very nice recipe! Made basically as written it comes out moist and flavorful! Only thing I would say is that it doesn';t have hardly any banana flavor so I';d like to bump that up next time. But tastes like a really yummy chocolate cake! Thanks for the great recipe Miss Diggy...."

This was a nice and easy weeknight tofu dinner. Instead of peppers I added snap peas because that is what we had. It came out well...mild but a little sweet and tart too. Kids liked it as did the parents. Only thing is that unless I did something wrong, nothing is caramelized, so not so sure about the title. Thanks for the nice recipe Sharon...

This was very easy and healthy. I had a perfectly ripe mango and so the sweetness was right on! It was sweet but not overly. I liked the snap of the vegi';s with the tart lime and sweet mango. Maybe serve it over brown rice or something for a full meal? Thanks for the great recipe Nat Da Brat...."

This was a nice summer dinner. I didn';t measure the vegies and in the end wished I had added more. This is a good basic recipe. I think next time I will play with the spices to add a punch as it came out pretty mild. thanks for the great recipe!"

Jun 17, 2014 in on

This is nice. The flavor is a little different from what I am used to. It had a little spice and a little smokiness. I imagine it would be a nice full meal if you added some shredded chicken or pork or something. I think I';ll stick with my standard cuban black beans but this is a nice way to mix it up sometimes. Thanks for the great rec...

Yum! What I really like about this is that it is kind of crispy and kind of chewy at the same time which makes for a perfect granola. Made just as written but subbing coconut oil for the oil. Thanks for the great recipe Bev....."

DH and I really liked this. The flavor was good and I just loved the crunch of the lettuce with the soft texture of tofu and snap of the water chestnuts. Based on other reviews I made the sauce in a saucepan and brought to a boil before adding a bit of cornstarch (dissolved in a little water). This added a little body but I don';t believe ...

This was very good, albeit a bit decadent. It was also easy (especially if using leftover salmon) and uses simple ingredients you might just have on hand. The flavor was simple and mild but not boring. Everyone ate it right up. All in all, 5 stars from me. Thanks Sharon123...."

I';m not giving stars because I totally messed up this, actually very simple, recipe. But, I write the review to warn others that the soymilk is not negotiable. I used regular milk not thinking and the whole thing curdled. It was totally inedible. Again, this was my fault completely and otherwise the recipe was easy, healthy and I think w...

Really nice pie! I added a little extra coconut (flakes not extract) as other reviewers suggested and that was a good idea. Flavor was good and it was certainly easy. Only problem was that mine just didn';t hold together like a pie. It was more like a thick pudding but we ate it so fast it didn';t really matter. Thanks for the great ...

Apr 30, 2014 in on

This is a really nice crust. I used it to make a coconut cream pie and I would say given the sweetness of the coconut cream it was a little too sweet for me (having said that I used the brown sugar). I think it would be best with a super sweet pie (like a mocha mud pie or something) or a not very sweet pie (like a cranberry). Otherwise this cr...
