Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
To say we love these would be an absolute understatement! I made only minor changes due to personal preference...omitted the mustard and subbed low sodium black beans for the kidney beans. These are TRULY addictive!!

Delish, delish, delish! Omitted the sesame oil and kicked it up with some cayenne...can't wait to use on other veggies!

Tan

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
What a delish combo! I used braeburn apples, and added black pepper due to others recommendations! It was fabulous...I even added some cayenne for added kick but will reduce the balsamic next time b/c it was a little too much for me. I'm a crazy balsamic fan but this sort of stung the nostrils! I served it over baby spinach, added some chopped cashews and feta cheese...no dressing needed!

Absolutely Amazing Ahi

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
Recipe was yummy, however, my husband and I just can't do the raw fish thing. It's partially mental but primarily there's a texture problem...even chilled in freezer prior to serving. Thought this would be a good rookie recipe (and it was) but we just couldn't do it. Also, I STRONGLY suggest you reduce the sesame oil unless you know you love the flavor..it is quite pungent and I'm not a fan!

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
Yummy but something was missing...just can't put my finger on it. As usual, I made personal preference modifications...omitted all meat w/ the exception of shrimp. I added soybeans, suger snap peas, matchstick carrots, snow peas and fresh mushrooms. This is something I'll continue working with but can't decide what was missing...maybe the MSG!

Gyoza

Reviewed: May 2, 2008
I've been buying pre-made gyoza at Sprouts and loved them...decided to try them on own and was pleasantly surprised! I made a few modifications just due to personal taste/health. Cabbage and sesame oil were omitted. Used sliced green onions. Sauteed garlic in EVOO, added green onions, added pork then added egg and seasoned with cayenne and black pepper and a dash of garlic salt. I chopped some fresh ginger root and added it to the meat mixture after it was cooked, prior to stuffing wrappers. I used square wonton wrappers and put a teaspoon of filling inside, wet one-half of the edge of the wrapper with water, fold in half. It should look like a triangle. Then, work the egdes together to ensure a good bond. I added about 1 cup of water to same pan that I cooked the meat mixture in, covered it and let in boil...added the gyoza, covered and turned twice to ensure both sides were golden. As another review mentioned, it is important to add the water in order to steam them. Making gyoza is very time consuming but wasn't as messy as homemade raviolis! Yummy!!

We didn't like this one at all! Followed everything to the "t" but it tasted really sour.

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Delish! My husband (who hates strawberries) ihaled it and has requested it several times! Few minor changes as suggested in reviews...didn't have poppy seeds so those were omitted. Used 1/2 the amount of sugar and balsamic vinegar! Fabulous!
