Gonzo Garbanzos

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
Nice flavors in this one, only change i made was to omit the sazon seasning (didn't have any) and just double up on the Cajun. I liked the tang from the lemon, overall a great side dish that could also be served with rice for a healthy but filling lunch the next day. Thanks for sharing!

Jam-filled Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
These are really nice muffins, I just felt when i tasted the batter that it was missing something, so I added 1/2 tsp. of almond extract. I used strawberry jam for the filling and baked for 20 minutes, the end result was just delicious! The consistency of the muffin was just right for my tastes, but I do recommend adding either almond extract or vanilla for that 'something extra'. Thanks for sharing :)

Mango-Peach Smoothie

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
Delicious! I started making this and then realized I didn't have peaches, but I did have apricots that needed to be used up anyway so I substituted those instead. I have no doubt htis would be just as tasty with the peaches. The mango flavor came through just fine, and it just an all around great summer smoothie. Thanks for sharing!

Italian Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
A nice, simple soup. The only changes I made were to leave out the celery (didn't have it) and saute the onion, carrot, tomato, and garlic in some olive oil before adding the broth. I had gorgeous tomatoes and that really helped with the flavor, and a sprinkling of Parmesan was just the right finishing touch. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
This really is very pretty to look at, and delicious as well. I followed the recipe exactly, and the combination of flavors is wonderful. Since its summer I think I may try adding fresh apricot or nectarine next time, this is definitely one of those salads you can play around with or enjoy exactly as written. Thanks for sharing!

Spicy Mango Sauce

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This was really tasty and perfect for me since I have a whole box of mangoes to use up! I followed the recipe exactly and enjoyed it as a dip with some tortilla chips, but I do think this would go really well with chicken. I just love that sweet/spicy combo, and the longer it sat the better it tasted, IMO. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Chef John!

Grilled Poblano Pepper and Mango Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
great idea, but I did feel that it needed something for a bit more flavor. I love the spicy/sweet combo, maybe next time I make this I'll mix some taco seasoning in with the cream cheese for a bit of a kick. Thanks for sharing!

Lemon Artichoke Romaine Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Nice summer salad, I left out the olives (don't like them) and I left out the water because I knew it tasted the dressing before adding it and liked it just fine, I knew it wouldn't enjoy it with the water. The artichokes went really well with the dressing; just an all around good salad. Thanks for sharing!

Nectarine Blush

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Very good, and good for you! I did find the buttermilk flavor coming through a tad strong, so I think I'll cut back on that next time and supplement with regular milk or, as other reviewers tried, with orange juice. The nectarine flavor is great and its just so simple to make! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Low-Cal Zucchini Pancakes with Low-Fat Basil Dressing

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
I'm rating the zucchini pancake only: Great flavors and pretty healthy, my only problem was in trying to get them to stay in patty form; they just kept coming apart on me. I'm thinking I just need to do something to the mixture to get it to hold, so I'll tinker around with it a bit as my zucchini crop comes in and keep trying. I had planned on making the dressing but realized I had no mayonnaise so I will make that next time also. Overall a really good recipe with nice flavor, hopefully next time I make these I can get mine to look as good as the ones in the picture! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Con Queso Spirals

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
Really delicious and good for those nights when you just want something quick without a lot of fuss. Nothing extra special to make it five stars, but still quite good. Thanks for sharing!

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: May 26, 2012
This is really great soup, and quite healthy. The only change I made to the recipe was to use half water/half veggie broth. As others have already mentioned, the vinegar is essential to this soup. Highly recommended, thanks for sharing this recipe!

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: May 25, 2012
Fantastic flavor, and that topping is so yummy! The only thing I can think to do is add a little vanilla (I add vanilla to everything I bake), but even without that it is still five stars. I substituted butter for the shortening (I never use shortening so its never in my pantry) but other than that I followed the recipe exactly and was blown away. Thanks for sharing!

Italian Zucchini Boats

Reviewed: May 25, 2012
Absolutely delicious, and filling enough (for me, anyway) for dinner! The only change I made was to increase the garlic (can't get enough of it) and sauteing some onions in olive oil, then adding the tomatoes zucchini pulp, and spices. Once that mix cooled down I added the bread crumbs, egg, and parmesan. This is especially good if you have a lot of zucchini to use up from your garden. Highly recommended, thanks for sharing!

Oven-Fried Bananas

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
yummy and really simple to make, I didn't change a thing but next time I think I'll cut back on the bread crumbs since I had plenty left over after using 1 banana. Thanks for sharing!

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: May 22, 2012
Absolutely delicious and very filling, only change I made was using regular milk instead of soy because it was all I had in the fridge. The smoothie is easy to put together and gave me plenty of energy to get through a busy day. Thanks for sharing!

Shanghai Noodle Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
Excellent salad, only change I made was to use sriracha sauce rather than red pepper flakes (I like it really spicy). I don't think I'll add the salt next time, the soy sauce has enough for me. this is really good either warm or cold. Thanks for sharing!

Chilled Strawberry Cream

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
Delicious and so, so simple! This is a recipe perfectly suited for summer because it doesn't require an oven. I loved it just as written, but I do think I could do the same thing with raspberries as well, which I figure would be just as tasty. Thank for sharing this one, it's a keeper for sure!

Pita Chips

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
These were fantastic, cut them thin and you will get that wonderful crunch. The seaonings can easily be changed for more variety, but this combination is outstanding and would go well with hummus. Thanks for sharing!
