Potato Leek Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
This was delicious! However, 5 lbs of potatoes takes me much longer to peel and quarter than 25 minutes, not to mention taking care of the leeks. That said, this tasty, tasty soup gets five stars from me.

Avocado Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
I like to try new things, but this recipe just didn't taste good to me. Maybe it would be good if I spent some time tweaking it to my tastes, since I love avocado, cheese, and cornbread all individually.

Rolled Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I had no problems at all with this recipe. Thanks for having a recipe for dumplings that doesn't need eggs! I'm trying to stretch my budget and this was perfect. Will make again and again!

Avocado Frappe

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
I love avocados but did not enjoy this. Perhaps it would be good if tweaked to enhance the flavor of the avocado instead of just relying on it.

Meatloaf Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Very easy to make. Seems foolproof, especially given that I had to substitute instant oatmeal for the breadcrumbs and it still came out tasting fantastic. FYI, I topped with cheese when there was just 10 minutes left to cook.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
I love this recipe. My only recommendations would be to use either shredded or cubed cheese depending on your desired cheese density. Shredded cheese allows for a more even distribution, and cubed for larger pockets of cheesy goodness. Make according to taste. :) I also added garlic. I'm rating 5 stars for ease of recipe (hence the title) and for the tastiness of the dish.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
This is a wonderful, tangy-sweet sauce. I more than tripled the sauce(for my 2-servings) and after 30 minutes added a couple of sliced up granny smith apples. It may be better to add the apples at the last 15 minutes rather than 30 minutes. To taste, I guess!

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
These were so good! I would highly recommend Little Chef Frozen Spring Roll Pastry wrappers (for all purpose) from Cub Foods. These wrappers were very easy to work with and turned out very crispy. As everyone has been saying, this is a great recipe for using up vegetables in your fridge. And make sure to taste as you mix to get the best level of spice/flavor! I've even thought about using radical ingredients like sausage and olives.

Black Bean Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
This is an very good dish. My husband, who is not a fan of "wet bread" loved it and asked me if I could make it again, and again! I was really surprised that the tortillas took on the texture of pasta. Of course, I made sure that they didn't get too soggy by cooking off most of the liquid from the mixture of black beans, tomatoes, etc. Also, someone who is short on time can skip the entire second step and substitute a can of chunky tomato-bean-corn salsa and a can of black bean salsa for a very similar taste and texture (though I do love the cooked onions and peppers!). I also added cumin and used an extra clove of garlic.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ginger and Honey

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
Wow. I finally got up the courage to bring a dish to my in-laws Easter dinner, and this was the best choice I could have made. It was such a surprising recipe: sweet, tangy, aromatic. At my husband's request, I cut back on the cardamom, but I think I would have been happy with the full amount. I didn't have walnut oil, but canola ended up working just fine. After baking, I mashed up the potatoes and transfered to a nice casserol dish. As a final touch, I spooned a generous amount of the left-over honey mixture (from the bottom of the baking pan) over the potatoes. It looked, smelled, and tasted divine. This is now a family favorite!
