We have been vegetarian over a year & love experimenting. I do however, miss some of my old meals I used to make. Meatloaf, roast, ribs, redwine chicken....but, so far we have done very well getting our bellies full and satified.

Spaghetti Bolognese with Chorizo

Spaghetti Bolognese with Chorizo

My husband made this tonight with soyrizo, since we are vegetarians. Added mushrooms instead of beef and one zucchini. The kids and I are waiting and drooling standing over the pot....it is terrific — jameswagstaff 8/4/2011
Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata

A bit on the lemony side for any of us here. I really enjoyed it though, we used fake chicken from Quorn. I will make a gain, just alter the lemon a bit. 1/25/2011
Sweet and Spicy Barbecue Sauce

Sweet and Spicy Barbecue Sauce

I made slightly less sweeter than called for, but my teenage daughter and husband talked about how good this was for days after. I am a bit sketchy when people say they made bbq sauce...but this was YUM — wilderhares 9/16/2010

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

Really...I made a double batch and the family did enjoy snacking on these for days. I thought they were a bit high maintence with the chilling of the dough and the pans. — sgrishka 9/16/2010
Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup

Spicy Chicken Tortilla Soup

I wasn't expecting the kids to eat it, there they were even eating it by the spoonsfuls from the pot. We had out of town guests to who were not staying for dinner, but when they got a glimpse and smell of this soup they both had to enjoy a bowl. YUM — Beachbumette 9/16/2010
Artichoke My Chicken

Artichoke My Chicken

My husband keeps asking me about a meal he loved & when was I going to make it again. It was this. He loves food, but rarely is he so insistant about "when can we have that again?" — swibirun 9/16/2010

Grilled Asparagus

Grilled Asparagus

My kids think asparagus tastes like pee. I was surprised when I looked at their plates and they had some on them to begin with & then doubley surprised when they plates where empty. Good stuff. — peppertrader 7/14/2010
Grilled Portabella Mushrooms

Grilled Portabella Mushrooms

I love good vinegar. I was a bit skeptical because I don't like rawish onions (shallots) but I used red onions and these were YUM!!! Very happy with this; I served them with creamy lemon spagetti. 7/6/2010
Creamy Lemon Spaghetti with Olives and Basil

Creamy Lemon Spaghetti with Olives and Basil

My husband & I thought this was a great summer dish. Refreshing and light. I used the tomamtoes and olives. We discussed how we would make this again for our fancy guests....if we ever get some. :) Ultra quick...I served with grilled portabella mushrooms. 7/6/2010
'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake and Frosting

'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake and Frosting

It was easy to make. I let it cool for a bit longer than it said & it feel apart. The cake was good and very moist the icing, well not very chocolate tasting but very sweet. I think choc cake is not something I can make well. — Beachbumette 7/5/2010
Lemon Sour Cream Pie

Lemon Sour Cream Pie

Very simple to make. The strawberries are great addition with the tart lemon filling. The family ate it up. 7/5/2010
Teresas Spanish Rice

Teresas Spanish Rice

I used green bell peppers and white rice due to having them on hand. If using white rice shorten the cooking time. I also added a small can of tomatoe sauce for color and a richer flavor. My 8 yr old loved it, as I thought it was pretty darn good too. 7/2/2010
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Very good, all the kids and husband were wanting the dough and then munching on the cookies. Recipe was great, I added some walnuts, but nothing else different, although a sub of some oatmeal may be worth trying too. Kinda nice to have such a detailed recipe, when sometimes details do matter. — sgrishka 4/21/2010
Lemon Jello Cake

Lemon Jello Cake

Simple & quick to make, the glaze was good, i would recommend fresh lemon juice. Good for spring. — sdhughes 4/4/2010
Peppered Tuna Loin, Potato Gallette, Greens And Ponzu Sauce

Peppered Tuna Loin, Potato Gallette, Greens And Ponzu Sauce

I LOVED this tuna recipe. I cooked it for about 2 min longer on each side, so a total of 6 min on each side, I like mine med. rare. However the 4 min is perfect for a standard tuna loin doneness. 4/2/2010
