Refreshing Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
I made this 3 times this past summer because (1) it tastes great and (2) I was using up my abundance of cucumber. It's a great way for cucumber lovers to expand its use.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
I made this as directed, except to reduce the soy sauce (because I didn't have low sodium kind) and probably added a little more garlic ... but otherwise as directed. It was fabulous! Wouldn't change a thing. Put in a frozen tenderloin straight from the deep freeze in the morning, mixed all of the flavors, poured on top, set it to low, and when I got home 8.5 hrs later, it was pull-apart tender. I added corn starch to thicken, then pulled it all apart with a large spoon, and mixed it all up with the sauce. Delish!! Doesn't make a pretty picture that way, but sure is good.

Fresh Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Fantastic exactly as recipe says. Light, great summer salad. Served with chicken salad sandwiches and iced tea. Doesn't get any better than that.

Good for You Greek Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
Very good. Used the suggestion of adding some red wine vinegar -- just a few sprinkles. I used Kalamata olives but think I'll use plain black olives next time because the other add too much tang and takes away from the dressing flavor.

Roasted Beets with Feta

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2014
This is absolutely heavenly. If you're not a beet or feta lover, this won't win you over, but I love it. It should be served in restaurants.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Both my husband and I absolutely loved it!! Exceptionally quick, easy, and tasty. I made this as is, except to use water to thin out the sauce. Will try next time adding some peanuts maybe. Used other reviews and served with thai noodles and slaw. Perfect, perfect, perfect!!!

Mom's Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This is excellent; have made it 3 times now. My changes: Add chives to potatoes (and I like LOTS of potatoes on top); add garlic, Onion Soup Mix, 1/2 can beef broth, and beer. Simmer for about an hour. Shredded cheee on top. Can use tomato soup instead of sauce (I was in a out of the tom. sauce but decided I loved the flavor of tom. soup in this one).

Italian Sausage with Farfalle and Broccoli Rabe

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I've made this only once, but will make again! Both hubby and I loved it. The cheese does turn into a globby mess and the sauce doesn't thicken like most sauces, so I added corn starch to thicken and mix better. Have patience, it thickens when added to the al dente pasta (picking up on starch from that). Used regular broccoli because I couldn't find Broccoli Rabe (and still don't know what that is). Didn't have red pepper flakes so used Cayenne pepper (just a tiny bit). Used fresh broccoli (don't like frozen) and suggest putting it in only 1-2 min before adding the pasta (mine was overdone by the time it was served). I didn't add mushrooms, but will next time. Excellent recipe!!

Citrus Swordfish With Citrus Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
For the first time, ever, I enjoyed the fish dinner that I cooked. I used Mahi Mahi because they didn't have any fresh swordfish (and frozen can have a fishy taste) and I cooked it exactly according to the directions, including the time on the grill. It was so good that I was able to take the leftovers for lunch the next day and I still enjoyed it. I can't do that even with restaurant fish.

Veggie Lasagna Florentine

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
This was fantastic and absolutely a keeper. Hubby and I are new to the vegetarian diet and are thrilled to have a dish that is so satisfying without tofu (yuck). I followed the reviews and skipped the brown sugar (I think the tomatoes and tomato paste make it sweet enough), but I did not substitute with red papper flakes. I also doubled the herbs, and then added some dry spaghetti mix (which eliminates the no-preservative effect) because I like my sauce rich and robust flavored. I used part-skim ricotta and fresh spinach and kept adding the spinach to the blender of ricotta until it was a little greener than the color of green goddess dressing. I also used fresh mushrooms because of my preference for them. I shredded the zucchini/squash and doubled that as well. I had enough marinara sauce left over for a quick night of small spaghetti dish. We ate half for dinner and lunch the next day (double servings w/o any other sides), and then I froze the other half for a future meal.

Sweet Grilled Corn

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
Fantastic. Great taste. Great because you can make it ahead before your company arrives. Good with any meat grilled. I even used the cheap canned parmesean I had on hand and it was fantastic (with EV Oil). Have made 3 times now and company always wants the recipe. It's the only way I'm going to grill my corn from now on.
