Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2014
This is a terrific recipe. Not quite foodie quality, but the perfect mix of easy and delicious. We chop the spinach more coarsely (like the photo) and it works well. We also typically make 1/2 recipe which is plenty for 4-6 people. We also use fresh ground pepper instead of white pepper.

Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
We have made this four times and love it. Last time we made it we grilled the chicken and vegetables on different skewers which worked well, but two skewers on one plate is a little too much food. We served it with Tzatseki (forgive my spelling) - yoghurt, cucumber, dill, and lemon juice - which can also be found on allrecipes.

Roasted Cauliflower and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
Delicious! Wonderful! I'll make this again and again. It didn't however pass for potato-leek soup. Mashed cauliflower is a great substitute for mashed potatoes, and I thought this might be a similar trick. I followed advice from reviewers and roasted the cauliflower at 300 or 325 to get it browner, I used milk not cream, I used parsley for chervil (which I don't own), I blended 1/2 to 2/3's of the soup in a blender, and I cut back on the pepper. I served it with some Irish Soda Bread and it made a great meal. Next time I'll try a little bacon in it and I might try yoghurt instead of the milk or cream. I was confused by "use only the white" of the leeks, but I cut them back an inch below where the leaves fanned out and it worked very well. I was worried it I would lose the leek flavor if I cut too far back.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I've made this twice and love it. I grilled it for 1 minute flesh down to get some nice grill lines and then I turned it skin side down over indirect heat until it was done. 1 lb was closer to 3 servings with a side dish, not 4. I've marinated it for just an hour and that worked, but I think 2 or more is better.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This was excellent. I thought it would be drier like other roasted potatoes, but in fact it was moist. But it was excellent. I substituted slivered almonds because I had them, but I think sliced would have been a little better. And remember to put them on just before serving or they would have been soft.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
This was wonderful. I didn't have Macadamia nuts and substituted unsalted cashews. I'm suspect Macadamia would be even better, but it worked. It had a nice Indonesian flavor.

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I didn't have all the ingredients, but this was wonderful even without the mushrooms and bell pepper.

Corn Casserole III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. Will try a version with chilis somtime soon, but loved it as is. Definitely soft and not too sweet. Good with or without turkey and gravy. We did this in addition to stuffing, not instead of.

Quick Savory Cranberry Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
Delicious, but still not sure I'd serve it for the President. Still we loved it. Easy to make anytime, not just the holidays. And the amount of sauce in one batch was ample for our 3 lb pork roast with lots to spare for gravy on the table.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
We love this and make it often. I don't think we change anything. It does dry out quicker than breads with more oil, so plan to eat it the same day!

Cranberry Sweet Potato Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
This was terrific. We served it as a side with turkey at Christmas dinner. It was sweet, but that worked well with the tartness of the cranberries. Next time I might try it with a little maple syrup, or maple flavored granola.

Robbi's M&M Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
Delicious. We used red and green M&M's (the holiday mix) and used them as a Christmas cookie.

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
My son and I made these as a holiday gift for his teachers at school. They were terrific! And the advice to use a piece of bread to soften the cookies if they dried out worked perfectly.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
We brought this to our parent's house for Thanksgiving dinner and it was a blast. Everyone loved it. We didn't modify it except to substitute some cream for milk (because we had it already). We also loved Cranberry Sweet Potato Bake.
