The Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
This recipe has a lot of taste. As others, I left out the olives and pickle relish (we don't like sweet potato salad). The pepperocini is a must as is a little finely chopped red onion.

Chicken and Dumplings III

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
This dish went over well with the family. I used 1 can celery coup and 1 can of cream chicken soup. Also used chicken broth to cook chicken in. I threw in a handful of frozen peas, some chopped onion and a little chopped celery.

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
I'm not a fan of white bread, but my guys liked these. I split the dough in half and made 6 rolls out of one half and 4 larger rolls out of the other half. The 4 will be used for sandwiches in tomorrow's lunch.

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2012
All I can say is "WOW!". There is only 1 restaurant I've ever had outstanding tuna steak at and I'm thinking this recipe meets, if not beats, theirs. I let my tuna marinade for about 7 hours and it was so flavorful and tender, I could not stop eating it. Thanks for such a great recipe! Update: I used this marindade on 2 rib eye steaks and chicken breast and it was fantastic!

Chicken Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
This was fast and easy to assemble, which is what I appreciate in recipes. I think this recipe lends itself to a of options, depending on a person's likes. I left out the cilantro (don't like it) but added chopped red pepper, red grapes and some walnuts. I didn't have the dressing called for, so I used my favorite: Paul Newman's Light Honey Mustard Dressing. Wow! This was my dinner and I will definitely make it again.

Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
I love the versatility quinoa offers, however, this receipe really needed more flavor - I doctored it up with 2 t. cumin and 1 t cinnamon. The olive oil is totally unnecessary so I left it out.

Grilled Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
Doesn't get any easier than this. I sliced my potatoes into long slabs for faster cooking. Be sure to oil or spray the foil because this was a great way to avoid sticking. A sprinkle of your favorite cheese finishes them off beautifully!

Delectable Marinated Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
This was really easy to put together. The only changes I made was to substitute honey for molasses (didn't have any)and omitted the liquid smoke (don't care for it). I marinated chicken thighs for about 5 hours and could barely taste the seasonings. Next time, I'll plan on letting them soak overnight.

Pork Tenderloin Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
This marinade really did a great job of tenderizing the pork tenderloin I bought. After reading some of the reviews, I decided to let it sit only 4 hours as several people said it was too strong if left in longer. They were so wrong! My guys said it didn't have all that much taste to it, but was very tender. Next time, I'll let it marinade all day long or overnight.

Salmon Avocado Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
This was a great inspiration recipe for me and I have to admit I made several changes. I eat salmon at least 3 times a week, and usually bake or grill it. I never use oil with it, as it is an oily fish to begin with. This time I decided to poach the fish using 1/2 c water, 1/2 wine, some sliced onion & tarragon. Only took 5 minutes and poaching leaves NO fishy odor in the house. I made my salad bed with romaine lettuce and added fresh mushrooms (why saute them?), avocado, and grape tomatoes. (Had no feta or would have it it too)To save time, I used a little of Paul Newman's Lite Honey Mustard Dressing. Wow! What a fantastic salad. Next time I think I'll add some red pepper and a handful of blueberries.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
I'm a new fan of quinoa and have been experimenting with it every time I find a new recipe. I found this to be a bit bland, so I added 3 T curry, 1 t. cumin and 1/2 t. cinnamon. Also, I prefer onions cooked, so I browned them with some garlic, then proceeded with the rest of this recipe.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
Love the list of ingredients (minus cilantro). I kicked this up a bit by increasing curry to 3 t. Added 1 t cinnamon and 1 t cumin. Since I planned on having this as my lunch vs a side dish, I added a can of rinsed and drained black beans. Not only was this a delicious meal, it was so colorful as well.

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
Very good. I cut my loaf in half, spread the mixture on the inside, then wrapped it in foil and put it on the grill for about 15 minutes. I omitted the cheese due to allergies.

Quinoa with Sweet Potato and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
I took some shortcuts with this recipe and it turned out really good. I browned the onion & garlic in olive oil, added about 3 t. curry, 1 t. cumin and 1/2 t. cinammon Then I added double the amount of quinoa and water. I let that simmer for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, I microwaved a sweet potato until it was about half cooked. After letting it cool down, I removed the skin, cubed it and added it to the pan, continuing to simmer for about another 10 minutes. When it was done, I added some slivered almonds (didn't have pecans on hand). While it was still hot, I stirred in about 1/2 c of dried cranberries. Not only was it great tasting, it was very colorful to look at.

Pistachio Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
This recipe couldn't be any easier and it went over very well at our dinner party. I used 2 boxes of pistachio pudding and took the suggestion of others to nix the frosting and drizzle melted chocolate chips across the top. Definitely better the 2nd day. The only thing that was a bit off was the size pan. I followed the directions exactly and the graham crackers don't quite fill the entire bottom of the pan called for. No big deal, though. I just kind of shoved everything to one side and it worked out fine.

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
This was "ok". The fish were way too soggy on the bottom, even though I followed the baking directions. I'll have to try putting the fish on a rack like someone else suggested.

Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
I did not have time to roast my asparagus, since I was packing my lunch for work at the last minute. I simply put frozen asparagus spears in a microwaveable container, sliced mushrooms on top of them,. added diced garlic, drizzled with olive oil and nuked at lunch time. It was fantastic! I will try the roasting method when I have more time.
