Eggplant Antipasto

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
Fantastic. I don't bother peeling the eggplant, and I personally don't like mushrooms or olives. I substitute zucchini for the mushrooms, and 1-2 tbl of capers for the olives. Instead of the vinegar sugar combo I followed others suggestion and just use balsamic vinegar to taste-1/4 cup probably. If possible I add fresh herbs instead of dried, and cook it longer than 30 minutes, 45 more likely. Great with fresh soft/crusty bread or over pasta.

Green Bell Peppers stuffed with Tomato Lentil Couscous

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
So delicious. I made one change: I used 1.5 lbs of spicy Italian sausage instead of the ground beef. I also waited until the pepper tenderness was to my liking before adding the cheese in the oven.

Mixed Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Super simple recipe to make. I buy fresh berries when they are in season and this is my go to recipe for them. I hardly ever remember to add the sherry though. Chill the mixing bowl before whipping the cream and it will go much faster!

Spicy Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I make a version of this at home; but I just use a can of Rotel (tomatoes and chili peppers) to decrease a step.

Fresh Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
I added black beans and fresh summer corn off the cob. I did not add sugar b/c my mangos were quite ripe and sweet on their own.

Wrapped Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Very easy (if you don't mind working with phyllo) and tasty dish. I added some fresh dill to the mustard.

Sausage Biscuit Bites

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Really quick recipe for a potluck brunch. You can make it fancy with herbs or seeds on the outside, and the butter on the inside isn't necessary.

Slow Cooker Creole Black Beans and Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
I have been making this for years, it's great over some white rice. I tend to only use 1 lb of sausage, and buy the smoked ready-to-use and skip the whole browning step. Assemble the night before, pop the cooker on in the morning and come home to a yummy dinner smelling up the place.

Asparagus Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I was hesitant about the lime but it worked great. Didn't have green onions on hand, but chives and red onion worked well to substitute.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
I called them Mini Spinach Bites when I served them because I baked them in a mini-muffin tin. I did alter the recipe slightly: Used 2 tbls butter to sautee 3/4 cup of chopped onion and 1-2 cloves of garlic. I added the thawed spinach to that for a few minutes, and seasoned with salt and pepper. Then followed the directions to mix it all together (with no extra butter). I used an Italian blend of shredded cheese. These bites are delicious!

Succulent Grilled Peaches with Honey Chevre

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
I used a honey liqueur, so did not add the milk since it was more liquidy already. Yum!

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I've never felt the need to add the mayo to this recipe, and it's been my go to spinach artichoke dip for years. So easy and tasty. I have a lot of vegetarian friends, so I tend to leave out the bacon.

Louisiana Crab Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I halved the recipe but kept the amount of crabmeat the same. Also added Old Bay seasoning to taste (more than a tsp, less than a tbl) and a few more dashes of tabasco. It was a big hit!

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
If I am roasting the peppers in the oven(as opposed to store bought), I add the garlic as well so it gets a sweeter flavor. Also, I use fresh parsley in place of the basil. I add the tahini slowly and taste at intervals as sometimes I feel it overpowers the dip.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I usually reduce the recipe as I make them for one and don't want them to sit for too long in the freezer. I only use the one can of black beans, and instead of the can of tomatoes just slowly add salsa until it seems the right consistency.

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I am not a baker, but wanted to make a "steak cake" for my bf's 30th surprise party. This recipe was easy to follow and not too intimidating! I just used half the recipe, a hand mixer (with bread dough attachments) and tons of crisco on my hands, the bowl, the counter; basically everything the marshmallow was going to touch. I put it in the fridge overnight and had no trouble rolling it out the next evening. I was just using it as an offwhite, so the slight beige resulting from the vanilla was perfect.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I followed the advice of another poster (ANJOULEME Reviewed on Jan. 1, 2004) and used a greased muffin tin. Cooked at 325 for 25 minutes and they came out perfectly. I also added a tsp of vanilla.
