Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
Great recipe! Based on another review I swapped out cilantro for the parsley and it was delicious. I was out of green onions, but I'm sure they would have been perfect. It did feel like it needed more zing so I added about 5 cloves of garlic - no joke - it had a good bite, but probably more than most people would like. I'm excited to add this to my regular rotation!!

Strawberry Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Very good salad! Loved the dressing, but agreed with another reviewer about adding some goat cheese next time for a little more oomph. Will definitely make this again!

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
LOVE this recipe! Fast, easy, delicous! Have made it many times...am making it for dinner right now, actually. I stick pretty close to the recipe, except I don't measure...just pour on salsa until the fish is covered. I love cheese so I put as much on as I'm in the mood for. Same with the tortilla chips - just grab them out of the bag, crush them over the fish and pop it all in the oven. I agree that it can get a little watery in the dish, but it doesn't really affect the fish. I think you could strain the salsa a bit if it bothers you, but I don't really care. Great to make for a last minute dinner. I always have these ingredients on hand. Frozen guacamole thawed makes a good topper too if you don't have fresh avacado. Thanks for sharing such a quick and easy recipe!

Roasted Beets with Feta

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
This was plate-lickin' good. I used green onion instead of shallots b/c that's all I had...paired with fresh parsley from my garden, it was summer fresh and delicious. The beets I used were golden & I just put them all in one pan and covered it with foil to roast. Peeling them was a bit of a pain, but it was well worth the effort. I also used a really really good balsamic, so I'm sure that contributed to the flavor - overall, a really really great dish.

Maria's Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Mmmmm...good! Made this mostly as written, but also added tofu, so I made a little extra sauce. My husband couldn't get enough of it. I took the advice of a few other people and stir fried all the ingredients separately and then made the sauce. LOVED this over rice...hubby couldn't get enough of it. I wasn't sure I would like it with the red wine vinegar, but the sauce had such a great flavor. Will definitely be adding this to my regular rotation and can see swapping out meats and veggies depending on what's in the fridge. Great, easy, versatile...thanks for sharing!

Salmon Tango

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
This was amazing! I did make a few small changes to make the marinade a tad bit healthier. Instead of butter I used 1/4 c. olive oil. I also used 1/4 c. of honey instead of brown sugar. To cook, I broiled at 500 degrees for about 5 minutes on each side. D'lish!

Ham Salad Spread

Reviewed: May 3, 2011
OMG! So good...strangely addicting. My only change was to skip the celery b/c I don't like celery. I used canola mayo to cut down on the cholesterol. Passed the hubby test too....spread it on whole wheat bread to make sandwiches for lunch.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
One of my very favorite recipes found on this site...we make this quite often in the winter and it never fails. The only thing we do different is add some lamb sausage. YUM!

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
It's been a while since I made this, but wow, was it good! I was skeptical...thought they would be dry, but they were juicy and d'lish. Looking forward to making these again this summer.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
Made this tonight as written, except for using whole wheat flour instead of white. Turned out well...no chew to the crust, but tasted good and is great for a fast easy pizza dough. I'll probably look for another recipe that has more chew, but will keep this in reserve for nights when I need to make dinner fast. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
This was pretty good...my crockpot wasn't big enough to squeeze in the bottle of beer or the tomato sauce...I did use the liquid from the beans though, so maybe that's why. Tasted great, but wasn't that much easier than my regular chili recipe, so not sure I'd make it again.

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
Just made these and they are ok. I skipped the butter and the coconut and halved the choc chips. Added an extra 1/2 c. each of the dried fruit and oats plus a 1/2 c. flax seed to make up for the missing coconut and chips. I think I'd like them better with all dried fruit and no choc chips. The bars were also a little dry, so I may make them one more time and add a splash of canola oil to replace the butter.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
Just made these and was very underwhelmed. I did skip the brown sugar based on some of the other reviews and only did a 1/2 c. of choc chips. It was sweet enough, but I also subbed canola oil for the butter b/c we're trying to cut back on saturated fats...I guess it needs the butter. :)

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Delicious cookies - couldn't stop eating the uncooked dough either! I did find it a bit sticky to roll, but honestly, I hate rolling out cookies, so my patience didn't last long. I ended up making little balls and then flattening them into circles with my hands. Not the prettiest, but will work for a bunch of 4yo girls who will be decorating them with frosting at a tea party tomorrow. :)

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
This was pretty good...not something I'd crave, but fresh and healthy. I used red quinoa so it was very colorful...might like it better with a little more feta.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
Didn't care for this at all...too sweet. I prefer a slightly denser, less sweet frosting, so I will keep looking.

Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Nice simple recipe...very fresh and clean. I prepared it exactly as written and felt like it was missing something, so I added the juice from half a lemon and a pinky finger's worth of fresh grated ginger....added just enough extra oomph to satisfy. The honey flavor is my favorite part though. Will definitely make again.

Warm Blue Cheese Dip with Garlic and Bacon

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
This was awesome - made it without the bacon because I didn't have any...can only imagine it would be even better with! Can't wait to try it again.

Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Made a big batch of this recently and just wasn't thrilled with the taste. I used shortening, but wonder if butter would have tasted better.
