Thai Shrimp Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I can't say enough about how fantastic these are! Brilliant! I used my Kitchenaid meat grinder to grind all of the shrimp, which made it very painless. I used a bit more cilantro than called for, and added a little light mayonnaise to the slaw rather than oil to make it "creamier". I served it with fresh pita bread from a recipe on this site - so easy. I was worried about the burger falling apart so I added some extra breadcrumbs, but it actually stayed together really well, and the whole concoction just tasted so fresh and wonderful. We re-heated two of them to eat the next day, and it tasted just as good as the day before. I can't wait to make these again!

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
Wonderful! I've made this twice now, making a lot of the changes suggested in the other reviews. Both times, I baked the squash first, just putting the whole thing in the oven at 375 for about an hour. The skin just peels itself off! Very easy. I also left out the celery both times. The first time, I replaced the potatoes with sweet potatoes and added some garlic and a pinch of curry powder. It was absolutely delicious and very hearty served with a big dollop of sour cream (the sour cream is a MUST). The second time, I made it just with butternut squash (no carrots, no potatoes) and it was even better. I added some cayenne powder for heat and a little nutmeg. I mixed the sour cream right into the soup this time - I'll definitely make this again.

Grilled Rosemary Shrimp Skewers with Sea Salt

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
These make for a wonderful presentation with 1-2 shrimp per skewer - perfect for appetizers at a party. As part of a meal, I lay the rosemary skewers over a bed of seasoned rice or barley (love it with the barley bake - recipe on this site). The rosemary imparts a surprisingly strong flavor! I couldn't taste the thyme and am not sure if marinating the shrimp beforehand really gives it much additional flavor - next time I'll probably skip this step.

Horseradish Mustard Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Yum, this was great! I made it to serve with some parmesan-crusted sweet potato fries. I used wasabi instead of horseradish. It had a good flavor and a good kick that would go well a number of things.

Fancy Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
This was really yummy! Because some reviewers had found it bland, I first marinated the chicken in a Mediterranean-style marinade (I thought that would pair well with the feta and red peppers) containing oil, lemon juice, lots of garlic, red wine vinegar, oregano. After that, I cubed the chicken and sauteed it, and threw in some chopped onions and the red peppers at the very end. This was a personal preference - I don't really like crunchy veggies in my chicken salads. Other than that, I followed the recipe and it turned out really well. I'll definitely use the recipe again - thanks!
