Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
A delicious, fresh recipe that can be thrown together in minutes! I have made the recipe twice now - the first time toasting the almonds in the oven, and the second time toasting them in a frying pan. The latter is slightly faster - but both work. I never knew bok choy could taste this good uncooked!

Honey-Ginger Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Yum! I marinated mine for 2 hours in the fridge (just because that's when I started cooking), and that seemed adequate marinating time to me. I used lots of fresh garlic and ginger. I also broiled the salmon rather than grilling it. Unfortunately, I left it to broil for 10 minutes and it came out a little burnt, so I'd be careful to keep a steady eye on the oven. Tastes great over brown rice, with a side of chopped sauteed kale!

Italian Kale

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I thought this recipe was great - easy, healthy, and delicious! I followed the directions, while adding a bit of water to the kale during the first step (as others suggested). I also tripled the amount of garlic. I also chopped up the stems and threw them in with the leaves, and was glad that I hadn't discarded them. The result was a tender, yummy side dish - not too oily or tangy, like some other vegetable sautees that use oil and vinegar.

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
My lentils came out too mushy, and there was no liquid at all... The red wine vinegar is a nice touch, but otherwise I found it to be way too underspiced.

Brownie Oat Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Delicious! I did make two significant changes: I used the whole egg, and instead of unsweetened cocoa, I actually used Mexican-spiced ground chocolate (which is actually just a hot cocoa mix that I happened to have at home). They came out moist and chewy and delicious - more like cookies than brownies though.

Beetroot Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Have no fear - there IS a lazy version of this recipe, which I just tested. I bought a can of chickpeas and a can of beets. I rinsed them both, then put the beets in the food processor. Next I sauteed the onion and garlic in a little olive oil until translucent. I went ahead and threw the chickpeas in with them, though this probably didn't make much of a difference. Then I poured the onion, chickpeas, and garlic into the food processor with the beets. I added the lemon juice and cumin and salt (I didn't add the tahini because i'm on a diet, but this would be the moment to add it), and then I blended them all together. I found this low-fat, 20-minute version of the recipe to be very tasty!

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Even better than I imagined! I suggest using much more paprika, and also adding salt. LIke others, I found 40 minutes to be way too long. I took them out at 35 minutes and already a few were burned, so I'd suggest 25 to 30.

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Delicious! I followed the recipe as given. Next time I'll probably up the amount of garlic and thyme, maybe add rosemary. It could be more herbed.

Family's Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
i found this recipe to be way too sweet, and the cream of celery soup overpowered the flavor of the spinach.

Soft Ginger Cut-Outs

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
The recipe's great, but the instructions could be a little better. First of all, my dough was very crumbly and difficult to stick together, even after adding two teaspoons of water to it. Second, it should be noted that the cookies expand significantly when baked, so leave lots of room between each gingerbread-person on the tray. Finally, for some reason I was never able to get the icing firm enough. It says to beat on high for 7 to 8 minutes: I beat on high for 20 minutes and it still didn't form stiff peaks. As a result, the icing ran a little on the cookies, making it very difficult to make faces, buttons, and the like. If you're short on time or simply want to avoid the mess, It's probably a better idea to buy the icing. Otherwise the cookies are delicious and low in fat - definitely a keeper!

Orange Cranberry Drops

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2009
Delicious! Easy! Low-fat! I used only about 2/3rds of the butter called for, and it was just as delicious! Soft and flavorful

Basil and Pesto Hummus

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Love it! I followed the recipe exactly, except that I squeezed half a lemon into it. I make hummus a lot and this one's definitely a keeper!!

Graham Cracker Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Delicious and easy recipe! I added chocolate chips, a teaspoon of vanilla and a shake or two of cinnamon. Oddly, although I followed the recipe amounts, mine only made 8 small muffins. I'll have to up the amounts next time.

Summer Squash Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
Delicious!! I took the advice of other reviewers and used only half the amount of nutmeg called for (which was still quite a bit). I used apple sauce instead of vegetable oil. I may try to spice it up some more next time with raisins and more cinnamon.

Spinach Artichoke Feta Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
great last-minute party dish - however, i would recommend reducing the amount of feta and ranch dressing mix a bit because they can overwhelm the other flavors.

Maple Salmon with Mushroom Couscous

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Easy, healthy meal - the salmon was delicious, though the yummy sauce didn't soak all the way through. The couscous was a little bland - boxed couscous would probably be as good if not better. Otherwise a handy little fish recipe for a last-minute meal.
