Broccoli Crawfish Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Excellent recipe and super-simple. I made a few changes according to my personal taste. 1. caramelized onions for 40 minutes, also used about 3 times as much onion and garlic as called for 2. mixed the shrimp into onion/garlic/butter/hot sauce before putting into the soup but did not cook them as I was worried the shrimp would become over-cooked 3. subbed creamed corn and chedder cheese soup for cream of chicken and celery 4. added about 3 tablespoons of lobster base to soup once it got hot 5. used old bay as well as increased amounts of hot sauce and cajun seasoning

Stir-Fry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
This has become a regular dinner with a few changes. I'm a vegetarian so I use the Morning Star "chicken strips" which work well with this recipe. Also, like others I use a bed of rice instead of spinach.

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Not bad, but even with extra seasoning it was rather bland.

Swiss Cheese 'n' Onion Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I had the best of intentions to make this recipe as written, but made a lucky error. I accidently forgot the pastry shell at the store and was too lazy to go back. I happened to have some frozen phyllo dough sheets on hand and made this like a breakfast lasagna, layering sheets of phyllo dough between layers of the egg mixture. To make it more dinner-appropriate I added some grilled shimp into the mix.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Amazing. I had wanted to make the macademia encrusted salmon (also excellent and on this site), but my fiance couldn't find the right nuts. This was the back-up and even better than the other recipe.

Onion Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Excellent recipe. Be sure to caramelize the onions (takes about 30 minutes) for the best flavor.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Excellent recipe! It was freezing cold when I made this, so I broiled the veggies in the oven instead of grilling outside. I also used fresh mozz cheese instead of feta since I had that on hand. Instead of the garlic mayo, I used a balsamic dressing on the veggies.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Excellent base recipe, but made a few changes... 1. I drained the water from the tofu by squeezing it, broiled it in the oven for 20 minutes, and fried it in oil for 7 minutes. 2. I thought that there was not enough liquid for all the veggies so I added about a cup of light cream 3. I also added avacado, zucchini, and subbed bamboo for the bok choy

Deep Dish Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
Excellent base recipe. We like spicy food so I added buffalo hot sauce to the alfredo sauce and covered shrimp in a cajun spice.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
Very good, especially with some modifications. I sliced the sweet potatoes instead of mashing them so as to avoid the baby food feel. I cut down on both the beans and potatoes and instead added peppers, cilantro, green onions, olives, and tomatoes before placing it all in the oven for around 5 minutes.

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
Very good with cod. I think homemade salsa makes all the difference, as it is more flavorful and less watery. I made mine with peppers, grape tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, garlic, beans, and corn in about 10 minutes. I would also suggest waiting until the last few minutes to add the chips and cheese.

Broccoli Cheese Crepes

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
These were pretty good, but a tad bland unless extra worcestershire etc is added. Well worth eating again.

California Roll Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This was so much better than expected. I'm not a huge imitation crab fan, so I was really hesitant, but this came out great. Definitely should substitute nori strips for lettuce as they really tie the dish together. I also doubled the rice to make it a main dish. Toasted white and black sesame seeds make a great garnish.

Portobello Mushroom Ravioli with Prawns

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Pretty good, but not quite good enough to justify how fattening it was.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
Adding 1/2 cup of either sour cream or yogurt to sauce adds to the flavor and texture
