This is very easy and good for a simple hors douvres. I wouldn't call it fantastic though. Nice to have among other options....

Jul 16, 2014 in null on Food.com

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 null on Food.com

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....."

This is fantastic! The kids just inhaled it for dessert calling it "cake." I made just as written but replaced butter with coconut oil, left out the raisins and added a few chocolate chips instead. Very easy, healthy, and yummy. That';s 5 stars from us. Thanks 1Steve...."

Reviewed Pf Chang's Tofu Lettuce Wraps

May 21, 2014 in null on Food.com

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 ...

Reviewed Spinach Pasta with Salmon and Cream Sauce

May 21, 2014 in null on Food.com

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...."

May 9, 2014 in null on Food.com

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...

Apr 30, 2014 in null on Food.com

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 ...

Reviewed Graham Cracker Crust

Apr 30, 2014 in null on Food.com

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...

Absolutely loved the flavor (and health) of these! I had a bit of trouble getting my first batch to stay in patty form...got more of a mush. For the second batch, I cooked them a bit longer (more like 5min per side) and they held together a bit better. Next time I might add a bit more flour though. Try this! It';s awesome!
