I wonder if adding the vegetable oil at the end is the best way to do this. It is tricky to incorporate into the cohesive batter. Next time I make the cake I will try adding it in with the yogurt and eggs."

I liked this recipe. The honey, almonds and lemon zest are super. They loaf was on the small side and sort of flat. I will play around with this recipe some more. I have a bumper crop of zucchini!"

I made this last night incorporating reader reviews and comments. It was absolutely delicious. Rachel Ray, you should revise the recipe! If I had followed it as written, I might not be happy. The onions and celery needed to be sauteed and I used 3 eggs to get everything to hold everything together. I used only a few ounces of spinach which I micr...

I made this and will make it again. It is really delicious and healthier than most recipes. Using low fat buttermilk is a great tip that allows you to reduce butter. Loved not peeling the apples and the half whole wheat crust. I love a chef who measures sugar in teaspoons not cups. Ellie is a treasure!""

Fantastic recipe. The Swiss chard leaves I had were on the small side so I didn't make the rolls. I parboiled the chard and layered half of it in the casserole, then the filling, then another layer of swiss chard. Everyone loved it.""

Picked the kale myself so I wanted to make something my husband would eat. He turned it down at first but finally agreed to taste. He finished a large portion and ate the leftovers for lunch. I added lemon zest to the dressing and used sliced almonds. I will make this again, it tastes great and is so healthy!"

I liked baking the eggplant as it keeps the fat way down. Another reviewer suggested cottage cheese which I will try next time instead of the ricotta. The filling ingredients were stellar. The flavors of mushrooms and spices took this to the top! I used my own marina sauce because I had already made some. So I give this top ratings because anyone "
