Spruced Up Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
This recipe is a great idea, though mine ended up a little watery and flavorless, so I made the following important changes: I added condensed cream of mushroom soup for creaminess and flavor, more carrots, and threw peas on top for extra color and some more veggies!

Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
LOVE this easy recipe. I have one important suggestion for this and all salmon recipes: make a few incisions in the salmon skin before baking - this ensures that the juices from the fat in the skin soak through the whole fish, making it juicier, and more flavorful!

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
I couldn't quite seem to bring much flavor to this recipe, even after doubling the spinach, doubling the curry paste, and adding red pepper flakes. Otherwise, it's not bad, and certainly easy to make. As much as I love chickpeas, I would have cut down on the amount of chickpeas in the recipe.

Pasta with Cilantro Pesto and Barley

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
I love cilantro and arugula but I couldn't even finish eating my large batch of this recipe. Something about the competing strong flavors of these greens made the dish tangy in a way that tasted almost like it had gone bad.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.
