Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I real unique desert I have never tried before! I increased the fruit and dropped some of the sugar and it came out fine. Only thing was the size of the pan. I should've used a flatter one. Besides that, it's a delicious dish.

Mayan Couscous

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
As with most recipes on here, I combine some of the reviewers suggestions with my own ideas to suit my tastes. With this one, I substituted quinoa for couscous. It's got more nutrients and doesn't have wheat in it. I started with adding the salt, cumin, and quinoa to the 3 cups water and brought it to a boil. Then, turned down the heat to simmer for 10 minutes. While that was cooking, I sauteed 3 cloves of garlic, onion, 1 green capsicum, jalapeno, 1 can of corn, and 1 can of beans. Then I added it to the quinoa and mixed in the cilantro and lime juice. I used 2 limes because I'm a big ole fan of it. It works great for lunch at college. It transports well and is still excellent cold.

Spicy Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
Everything was great here except I added a can of coconut cream (it really added a silky richness) and some freshly chopped coriander and cashews as garnish.

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
This recipe brought out the real cook in me, which happens to always want to tweak things and try what delights my tongue at the moment. I didn't drain the beef fat because it's not a problem for me and it makes everything taste better. I kept the beef in the same skillet as I added the garlic, onions, mushrooms, bell pepper, carrot, tomatoes, and spices (cumin, cayenne pepper, Worcestershire). I waited to add the rice because I had some leftovers which was already cooked, but when I do this meal again I will cook the rice beforehand also because I'd rather not mess with everything just so the rice can be just right. Chile sauce isn't really needed if ya have chili flakes or anything that's hot like that. The brown sugar was a nice touch. I served this stuff with homemade guacamole, cilantro, fresh cut lettuce, and lime on crisp corn tortillas, also known as tostada. AMAZING! Oh, and one more thing: I add a touch of cinnamon to the meat in the beginning because I like it like that.

Garlicky, Spicy and Sesamey Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
This was great except why would anyone boil their vegetables? Why not just steam them? It takes just as long if not shorter to do that and the vegetables keep their value. This paired exceptionally well with the rosemary ranch chicken kabobs.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
This was delicious! I added a little bit more ranch dressing but that was all it needed to amaze me. This went extremely well with garlicky, spicy and sesamey green beans and baked vegetables (potatoes, carrots, onions). This recipe will surely make its way into my personal cookbook.

Greek Tzatziki

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
I've been wanting to make Tzatziki for awhile now and I think this was a good recipe to start with. I added an extra cucumber because I like the thicker consistency and texture. I also added more garlic and lemon juice because they are flavors I love. Yummy and easy to make. Thank you.

Slow Cooker Sweet Chicken Chili

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This recipe is top drawer because it's deliciousness is matched with the ease in making it! Instead of throwin in chicken breasts, I just used the remainder of the whole chicken we had from last night's feast. About halfway into the cooking, I picked out the bones, which had already parted with the meat. I added some garlic and rice to enhance flavors and make it more filling.
