California Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
I used packaged cole slaw mix that already had carrots and purple cabbage in it, so just added some finely diced onion. I used more sugar, and less oil. Also added freshly chopped mint for a twist on the usual cole slaw taste. I wasn't able to marinate this overnight - only a couple of hours - and the result was still quite tasty.

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
A DELICIOUS way to use the sweet potato I had on hand. It was a great addition to the black bean cakes! I skipped on using the jalapeno pepper but used a bit of chipotle powder instead to add a little pepper spice. Really liked that the onions were sauteed prior to mixing with the black beans, but next time I think I'll also saute the grated sweet potato with the onion briefly before adding to the mashed beans. They were a little bit crunchier in the cakes than I had hoped. (The sour cream dressing thinned with a little more lime makes a great salad dressing, too!)

Sweet and Sour Pepper Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2009
This is one of the best and easiest sweet & sour pork recipes I've ever made...I didn't even change the recipe, which for me is sort of unusual.

Barbecued Turkey Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
This added some much-needed flavor to deli turkey. I slivered the turkey and simmered it in the sauce, and ate it as an open-faced sandwich smothered with mozzarella/asiago cheese, broiled until melted.

'Out of Salad Dressing' Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
I don't usually keep bottled salad dressing on hand, so I'm always glad to find a dressing that I can adjust to the amount I need. Didn't really measure as I was making this, but probably used more lemon juice and only added a very small amount of milk. The other changes I made were to add some white sugar and freshly ground black pepper.

Apple Puff Pancake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
The texture of this Apple Puff reminded me quite a bit of the pancakes my German grandmother made. I'm giving the recipe a 5 even though I made a few changes because I liked it a lot and it's much easier than making individual pancakes. I sauteed the apples briefly in a skillet before layering them in the baking dish. I added cinnamon to the egg batter and sprinkled the top of the puff with white sugar and cinnamon after I spooned the individual serving on the plate. I scaled the recipe to 3 servings (2 eggs) and ate the whole thing!

Tasty Sesame Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Great tasting tilapia can't be much easier than this! I marinated partially-frozen tilapia for about 3 hours until they were completely thawed. Since the fillets were so thin, I just grilled them on my indoor grill pan. The boiled and reduced marinade made a tasty sauce to eat over the fish. Served with Onion Rice (from allrecipes) this was a gourmet meal!

Onion Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
I used yellow onion with a little green onion added for some color. Chicken granules dissolved in water for the broth provided all the seasoning required... this is a simple and tasty side dish that can be "customized" to go with almost any meal. It made a great accompaniment for my marinated and grilled tilapia entree.

Cherry Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
This recipe makes 12 full size muffins. Good texture, taste, and pretty pink glaze. I omitted the nuts because of personal preference and used slightly more cherries and chips.

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
The egg noodles offer a nice taste change from the usual pasta. I thought this made a nice, quick light lunch garnished with french fried onions for some crunch.

Cinnamon-Curry Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
The dijon-cinnamon-curry seasoning sounded a bit unlikely to me but I tried it anyway as so many reviewers gave it a high recommendation. I must admit that I used more mayo and less of both the curry and the cinnamon, but it absolutely worked. Next time I think I may omit the relish but add dried cranberries or raisins.

Mongolian Strawberry-Orange Juice Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I cut the amount of orange juice to 1/2 cup, added 1/2 2% milk for a little creaminess, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Only 4-5 ice cubes. I liked this smoothie very much and will make it again.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I like this wonderfully mild and sweet dressing with any salad combination - but my favorite is a salad of mixed greens, mandarin oranges, and garlic croutons.

Kielbasa and Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
This is excellent - it'ss easy and quick to assemble and it is very tasty. The only suggestion I have is to simmer about 15 minutes after adding the beans so they absorb some of the sauce's flavor.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I used ICF chicken and let it marinate frozen in a ziploc bag for about 4 hours. It was still partially frozen and super easy to slice. Wasn't sure if I was to cook the chicken in the marinade, but since the recipe said "all juices" I decided that I would. Used white mushrooms (cut in quarters) and ramen noodles. I did add some oyster sauce as that was suggested by many other reviewers, but left everything else as per the recipe. I can't see anyone not liking this stir-fry!

PJ's Sweet Potato Mash

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Very tasty with the horseradish and a super quick side dish to put together considering that I already had the cooked & mashed sweet potato in the freezer. Used brown sugar and garnished with fresh snipped chives for a sweet and savory taste.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I've never tried Old Bay Seasoning in zucchini cakes and it was really good! Except for that, I really don't think I'd get these confused with crab cakes, but I'd make them again anyway. I did not use the melted butter in the cakes themselves, but I did fry them in a combination of olive oil and butter to add some of the flavor.

Orange Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I made this using a handful of frozen red grapes in place of the ice. That gave it a nice "confetti" look but also added extra sugar...thought the end result was a little too sweet. Added kefir to the smoothie instead of yogurt, and some vanilla extract. Not sure I liked the texture the blended orange gave, maybe next time I'll use just orange juice because I did like the combo of orange and banana.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
FANTASTIC flavor! Made the spice rub using 1/8 tsp of EACH ingredient (for just one large chicken breast). I added an additional tblsp of butter at the end to make a sauce that I could serve over sweet potato/white potato hash browns. Did not feel it was necessary to add any additional garlic to the browned chicken. Very mmmmm dinner.

Tangy Tomato Slices

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
I skipped arranging this on a platter like the recipe suggested (although I agree that would look nice if you're making this for a picnic) and just mixed chopped fresh tomatoes, finely diced onion, and the dressing for a marinated tomato salad. Unfortunately, I don't have any fresh basil from my herb garden yet so dried had to do - I'm sure I'll make this again but with only half the vegetable oil. It was way too oily for me.
