Quinoa Pilaf

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
I am new to the whole grain scene. This recipe is quite a nice change from the potato/rice rut I fell into. Next time I might use a little less carrot but overall, the dish was very good. I did however use an organic no-chicken stock in lieu of water. That with the fresh lemon, gave it good flavor. I will make this again.

I took the advice from others and doubled the marinade.Other than that,I followed the recipe to a tee and marinaded it over night. All I can say is WOW.I made these for a tailgate party and it was a huge hit.I only wish I had made more of them.The meat was tender and juicy.They were better than anything in any resturant.Thanks for the recipe.

I thought this recipe was too eggy.If I use this recipe again,I will only use 1 egg.This also needs sugar added to it.I made mine with Nutella and sliced bananas and powered sugar.Great combination.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Excellent recipe. This is the first time I've ever made guacamole and this recipe was easy and delicious. I omitted the tomato since I'm not a fan of tomatoes. I made the guacamole chunky, which I think gives more avacado flavor. One tip - make sure the avocados are soft and not firm.

Spinach and Mushroom Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
great recipe. i used shitake as well as portabello. i added some italian seasoning for flavor. most of all i sauted fresh leaf spinach(not baby) which gave it a more hearty feel. one tip, make sure the spinach is as dry as possible.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
Excellent recipe. Coming from someone who didn't like brussel sprouts, if they only tasted like this, I would have been a fan sooner! They were not bitter at all. The roasting really brings out the sweetness in them. I did put minced garlic on, but it really got charred from the roasting. Next time I will use garlic powder on them after they come out from the oven. Other than that, I wish I had made more.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
This recipe was very easy to put together. I prepared this exactly as written. It was good but not great. I felt there was something missing. It was a little oily. Next time I will use less oil and more lemon juice and some lemon zest.

Onion Barley Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2007
All I can say is awesome. This recipe is quick to prepare, hearty and most of all, tastes great! I used shitake mushrooms and added 2 cloves of garlic and WOW, I should have made double the recipe. Tip, watch and stir mixture occasionaaly, mine took about 35-40 minutes, not 50. I will continue to make this. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
This is a great recipe. The flavors meld very well together. I didn't saute my garlic and onion first and glad I didn't. The onion gave the dish a mild crunch. The heat from the hot quinoa cooks the garlic and onion anyway. The combination of textures is what makes this recipe great. I did however make this with no-chik stock (vegetarian) and also put lemon zest instead of lemon juice. The zest gave it a nice look and also the freshness that lemon is used for. I will make this over and over again.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Good recipe. I made mine wih blueberries and lemon zest. They came out great. They baked for about 17 minutes. I will make these again. However, I felt the dough was a little too sticky. Also, the amount of utensils needed was daunting.

Barley and Mushrooms with Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Way too bland for our tastes. I won't make this again, not with better recipes available. Easy to make however.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2007
Very good recipe. It was however, much better the next day. I used no-chicken stock (vegetarian) instead of chicken stock or water. The vinegar is very important in this recipe. Be sure to add a little extra as well as some extra salt and garlic, to make up for the lack of chicken stock. This recipe with some tweaking, will be a staple for me.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Great recipe. Used a 8X8 baking pan for 35 minutes and it was awesome. I didn't have buttermilk so I mixed 1T apple cider vinegar with 1c milk. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a tee and it was great. Not too sweet at all.

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Absolutely much better than expected. However, I made several changes to suit our tastes. I doubled the cumin, added 8 cloves of garlic, used no-chicken stock(vegetarian), added 1c more stock and lastly didn't add the couscous. With these changes, a great soup was the outcome. I will make this over and over again.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
Good recipe. I cut the sugar to 1/2c as others suggested. The next time I make these muffins, I will not. I added walnuts for crunch. They were moist but again, don't cut the sugar.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
I thought this was just okay. We felt it had too much corn. The flavor was good and it was easier to handle after it cooled a bit. Next time I will use pepper jack cheese instead.
