Classic Cornbread
I really liked it, it was light and fluffy and just a little sweet (I think my measuring spoon may have been rounded instead of flattened, lol!) Great combination!  So far, I am really liking this cookbook! (stacydan)
Vegetable Tempura

Soups and Salads
Alphabet Soup

Black Bean Soup
I didn't like this one served as directed. The lime juice (and the vegan sour cream, if using) make the soup kinda sour, and it was really brothy. Not at all like the thick, hearty black bean soup that I'm used to. I ended up adding chipotle hot sauce and crumbled tortilla chips to soak up some of the broth, and it was pretty good that way! Wouldn't make again. (kristinv)
Creamy Black Bean Soup

Green Salad

Caesar Salad with Sourdough Croutons

French Onion Soup
Very good! Only made a few small changes. Used two not-beef bouillon cubes in 5 1/2 cups of water instead of vegetable stock. I also don't have oven-proof bowls, so I just melted Daiya on the bread slices in the oven and served it alongside the soup for dipping. The caramelized onions were sweet enough on their own, so I don't think it needs the teaspoon of sugar. I will probably leave it out next time. Also added extra black pepper, and that seemed to help tone down the sweetness. (kristinv)

it was VERY easy and quick and had a great flavor!  I did the salt, pepper and cayenne to taste, so it definitely had a little "kick" to it, loved it! (stacydan)
Fettuccine Alfredo Two Ways
Sauce 1

Sauce 2

Dilla

Linguine and Chunky Marinara Sauce

Filet O Tofish Sandwiches
I was disappointed by these. I was hoping for something a little more flavoursome. I also had some trouble getting the breadcrumbs to stick onto it. Because the marinade is just kelpy water I made them again upping the amount of kelp powder and added some lemon juice and soy sauce, and had to increase the amount of tartar sauce to make up for it. but they were still not all that. I shall persist though! perhaps having some nori wrapping the tofu would get a greater fishy flavour?  (vanilladoe)
